We may not agree on abortion, but surely we can agree on reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies in this country. The reality of gun ownership may be different for hunters in rural Ohio than for those plagued by gang violence in Cleveland, but don't tell me we can't uphold the Second Amendment while keeping AK-47s out of the hands of criminals. I know there are differences on same-sex marriage, but surely we can agree that our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters deserve to visit the person they love in the hospital and to live lives free of discrimination. Passions fly on immigration, but I don't know anyone who benefits when a mother is separated from her infant child or an employer undercuts American wages by hiring illegal workers. This too is part of America's promise — the promise of a democracy where we can find the strength and grace to bridge divides and unite in common effort.

Yeah, and according to a generation of germans, hitler was one of the greatest speech givers. Still didn't make him a good leader

I watched it.... I kinda like Obama, but he reminds me of the anti-christ at the same time. Anybody else feel like this. I do not believe much he says. McCain either for that matter...Just something about Obama is spooky.

When asked of John McCain "What do you consider rich?" He jokingly said "5 Million?"
How can Lord Obama get away with saying that McCain considers 5 million a year, middle class?
Anyway....the more Lord Obama talks...the lighter my wallet is feeling.
"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt, in a letter he wrote to the president of the American Defense Society on January 3, 1919, three days before Roosevelt died.

Good point Cree, and wow, if this thread wasn't hi-jacked by flaming Liberals drinking the Obama Kool-aid.
Obama will take your civil liberties from you. He will tax you, alot. He will make you dependent on large government. He will attempt to control the Internet through the MSM and Google etc. - who are already backing him for that monopolizing legislation.
America, the most successful country in the world and still is, will be but a distant memory if Obama becomes elected.
Wake-up! Obama is lieing to you!
The Tax Policy Center, a research group run by the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute, has done the most detailed analysis of the Obama and McCain tax plans, and it has published a series of fascinating tables. For the bottom 80 percent of the population — those households making $118,000 or less — McCain’s various tax cuts would mean a net savings of about $200 a year on average. Obama’s proposals would bring $900 a year in savings. So for most people, Obama is the tax cutter in this campaign.
Funny, under the last guy you guys told us was a "dirty liberal out to destroy the country", we had the biggest economic boom since the 1950's
