Why would Obama have difficulty making it 4 years?
Age and general health and welfare for McCain. It is only natural after all for that concern.
As for Obama, not a pretty picture but let's be honest here, not everyone in America is ready for a black president. I have no problem myself but I
have seen quite a bit of this country and I can honestly say that there is a significant number of people out there that are not ready.
Even a decorated veteran like Gen. Powell would not be aceptable to these kinds of people.
In 1992 in Jacksonville, FL I was an opening manager of a barbeque resturaunt and there was a leader of a local white supremists group that would
place his hate crap in our bathroom. Stickers on the mirror, cards, pamphlets and stuff. I narrowed down who it was and followed him in and caught him
in the act. Not only did I tell him to get the hell out and not come back I threated his...manhood. When he took a step towards me and I pulled a
chef's knife. He said some things about how he was gonna get me so I took an aggressive step with full intent to back up what I said.
Two weeks later a black sailor on the USS Saratoga was murdered and the FBI suspected it was an initiation and they were looking for information on
that very same guy. I was visited at the resturant the next day and asked a series of questions and given a contact card should he come in again. I
said that he wouldn't and told them what I did. Fortunately he was eventually captured so I never had to deal with him again.
So yeah, eventhough that was 16 years ago, things haven't changed that much in this world to say that Obama would be perfectly safe as president. Yes
that guy was a two-bit thug that was used to bullying and manipulating younger people. A big fish in a small pond but I know that there are far worse
people out there. And I don't think they will all sit on their hands or be bluffed by a guy that was two seconds from wetting himself but was a good
actor that stayed in character.
