Please help me figure out where I said that. Where did I say I was voting for Obama? If
I vote for Obama, I would be doing so as a vote
McCain. I am a registered Libertarian, although I don't like Barr much. My vote is undecided. I am however certain at this point
McCain should not be the President.
that has only two years of political experience,
If he gets elected it will be 4 years experience (09) in the U.S. Senate.
That's 'political experience'. Why is other experiences not a factor for consideration? He has contributed to our society for quite a bit longer
then two(4) years! Why is his work post-Law School not factored in? Especially when it was related to the economy and civil rights?... Again, i'm not
this pro Obama guy you think I am, but I find the idea this experience is not pertinent to be quite silly at best, biased at worst.
and no military experience? The "Commander in Chief" with no military experience at all?
Well has every prior president had military experience? There is a reason that isn't a requirement imo. I think you are overlooking the fact that the
President will have an entire staff of experts and veterans with military experience. Also, it's not like the Generals disappear. He's not a
dictator, he's not a king. He will work with the Government on these issues, as prior presidents have. It's a collective pool of experience
ultimately. The most important distinction is that the President can have the last word...
Which brings me to the most important consideration imho...
Do I trust his heart. Do I believe in his Goodness. Honestly, I truly do not believe McCain is a good person. Therefore I do not want to empower him
with the final word. It's that simple for me.
Face it, this country has become a place of whiners and empathizers.
And a place for fanatical Christians. It's a melting pot of diversity. It's been this way for quite a while
One thing is for sure, we are a
Nation of apathy.
I work for a company with a population of roughly 90 percent black people. They have all (roughly 70 people or so) said that they will vote
for Obama just because he is black.
I believe you. But... what does this prove exactly? Are you alluding this random sample shows a corollary between black people voting for Obama simply
because he is black???
I am sure we can all find a company that employs 90% white people that are not
voting for Obama simply because he is black. Does this prove all
white people are racist? No. Neither does your example prove all black people are voting for Obama because he is black. Have to consider the flip side
to your argument, else you fall victim to double standards.
Let's forget for a moment his lack of morals, his Muslim history, and his inexperience he's black so let's elect the man.
I don't need to forget his 'Muslim history' because I think the evidence for that conspiracy is lacking. Then again, perhaps I just don't
understand what you meant by that?... Also, him having a 'Christian history' has the same impact on me as if he had a 'Muslim history'.
Morals. That's exactly why I would prefer Obama over McCain (that's not me saying I am voting Obama). I see lots of reasons to believe he is more
moral and ethical then McCain. That's my primary reason. Obviously that's not a science, it's my perception on things.
Don't get me wrong, I'm no McCain fan either and I have always voted republican
Maybe it's time to break that cycle? Independent? Libertarian?
but he does appear to be the lesser of two evils and I see absolutely nothing wrong with his comment.
1. I see Obama that way.
2. I didn't say there was something wrong with that comment.
Obama's campaign tried immediately to turn the entire election into a Jerry Springer nightmare as soon as Palin was announced on the
She didn't need anyone to help her with that.
If you are gonna complain, complain about something tangible. Not about "That One"
I hope you were speaking to everyone
... cuz I never
Did you read my posts? I said multiple times in multiple posts that I said this was not a big deal and McCain made an honest mistake...
