And I'll also be voting for the man and his accomplishments, of which I am well aware as I have READ about them. It isn't really
that hard to do.
If there were only more informed Obama supporters like yourself.. Maybe you could translate all his speeches for us, then we
too will know "What He Really is Saying"..

Lloyd..what a suprise, you posting a thread slamming Obama.
You seem to be repeating and pushing a new theme in your postings of "he is just to hard to understand". In Propaganda terms this is refered to as
an appeal to the common man. It encourages disdain for the educated and articulate. I actually think you are intelligent enough to clearly understand
what Obama is speaking of in his speeches, but dishonestly claimed otherwise to press this theme. He's just to "educated" and "articulate" for
the common folk!
I am not suprised at the tact, it worked well to get GWB elected. He's the kind of man you would "like to have abeer with" right? It's an appeal
to emotion... another tool of propagandists. There are plenty of people that I would enjoy having a beer with, but as Chief Executive of the USA?
You have to look no further than the past 8 years of GOP "leadership" to see what happens when you elect a simple minded idiot to the office. Easly
manipulated by those around him and unable and unwilling to understand complex issues.
Barack Obama ..
Only the 5th Black Senator elected in the entire history of the United States. You have to have to seriously impress to overcome those odds.
Obama graduated from Harvard Law School with a J.D. magna cum laude, where he was the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review.
He was a professor of constitutional law for 8 years at the University of Chicago Law School.
* Compare that to the current POTUS's understanding and knowledge of the constitution.
He has a very long list of community service.
Notice I didn't list anything about his political accomplishments. Yes the bills he has sponsored speak to his positions, but I will be honest, I am
not interested in his political chops.
The current political system in the US is BROKEN and CORRUPT.
In my opinion one of the greatest qualifications that Barack Obama has is that he is relatively new to the political scene. I want him to CHANGE the
way Washington works. Or at the very least TRY rather than what we have seen in DC over the past 8 years....Bush thinks Morales are paintings on walls
and Scruples are money in Russia!
Barack is intelligent, articulate and well educated in constitutional law and US history. Has a strong passion for this country and is just naive
enough about Washington corruption and strong willed enough to try to change it. He is the least like a "politician" of any presidential candidate I
have seen in decades. That is what I like about him. I am not interested in the "political experience" of the likes of like os Rumsfield, Cheney,
