If you want to know more about Obama, do as I have done. Watch his speeches, read his website, listen to the debates and decide for yourself. That's my advice.
Now, you can listen to everyone else with all their biased opinions, perceptions and contexts... or you can DENY IGNORANCE by educating yourself and making your very own decision. I highly suggest the latter.

in politics there are no new ideas, and when a politician speaks people expect them to lie, except for the niave.

If he couldn't do the job as a Senator, how will he accomplish it as President.
Oh yea, I forgot. We have to wait till he becomes President before he starts fixing America's ills.
The guy has more power now than he will as President. The media loves him. He is a star. Congress would have no choice but to go with the flow. In addition, the Democrat led Congress would look like asses for not passing the legislation that their adored candidate has proposed.

I would vote for Obama regardless of what party he ran for.
I am very inspired by him. He is thoughtful and nuanced. Not like any politician I have ever seen.

Revamping the administration is automatic. Every new president revamps the administration. That is the same as Obama's pledge to "reduce the number of abortions". Uh, yeah! Every candidate is for reducing the number of abortions.
Regardless of how you feel, we will be dependent upon oil for another decade. All candidates are in favor of alternative fuels; Obama is only for alternative fuels. That shows his lack of knowledge about energy issues.
Peace is a wonderful thing, but pacifism is idiotic and dangerous, especially considering the world of uncertainty we find ourselves living in today. Obama has a naive perception of the world, that in itself is dangerous, and is further proof that he is not fit to lead the most powerful nation on earth.

Hello all! As someone who might not vote because of all the conspiracy theories I hear on the great site, I decided to create this thread to learn about Obama and his ideas. In short, are they that inspiring, original and etc.? Are his ideas the sole reason his message is change? Does the hype exist simply because of his message? Or does it mainly boil down to him being African American? Should I vote for him because him being African American implies change and all that? Or are his ideas really that amazing? I need to know ! Enlighten me . Thanks!

Smart people like you are steering the world towards total destruction with
