I'm not slamming Obama, I'm just trying to point out the level of desperation being exhibited by people who want some kind of change, any kind of change, without first doing a little research on their candidate.

Lloyd..what a suprise, you posting a thread slamming Obama.
I'm pushing no such agenda. I seriously have a problem understanding what he says.. I know what my ears are telling me, but before I know what's happening, one of his supporters realizes Obama's gaf, and morphs his words into something entirely different. Take for example his "Typical White Person" comment concerning his own Grandmother. There's only a few ways a rational and intelligent person can interpret that statement. It's a racist stereotype no matter how you choose to look at it. Surely, you won't deny that.. Replace the word "White" with "Black", and tell me how it comes across to you..
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 never supported GW, and I certainly wouldn't want to have a beer with him.
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?
Not really.. He's not the first black man to ever overcome the racial boundaries in our society.
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.
Wow! I'm impressed. He came from such an humble background, yet somehow managed to go to Harvard, one of the most Elitist school in the country.
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.
Actually he was not a professor, but a lecturer, and then a senior lecturer. He never held the legitimate title professor.
He was a professor of constitutional law for 8 years at the University of Chicago Law School.
Which community might that be?
He has a very long list of community service.
No need.. As both videos demonstrate it would be a rather daunting task for anyone..
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.
You're right the system is broken and corrupt, but choosing someone based on their claim they will bring about change is illogical. What change has he brought about so far in his last 8 years as a legislator?
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.
I have my doubts about that..
Has a strong passion for this country and is just naive enough about Washington corruption and strong willed enough to try to change it.
From my point of view, he's no different than the rest. He changes positions frequently, he abandons his supporters for expediency, and lies like every other politician does.
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, Bush, McCain.
I saw a guy holding a sign that said that exact same thing once in front of a subway entrance..
