Howard Stern took to the streets of Harlem and asked people how they felt about Obama, (implementing McCain's views and policies), and the responses were really head scratching incredible.

As funny as it is, it's still kinda sad.

Shocker.


Poor, uneducated blacks blindly following Obama even though they don't have a clue what his stances are.

I don't think that this is funny at all. Its disturbing and sad.

Are you surprised? Hopefully not.

Blacks will vote for him in record numbers, how many do you think actually know his stance on the issues?

yeah and whites will vote for John McCain in record numbers because of their fear of a president who looks black but comes from a black and white family. Like a lot of you people who have just made this comment.

I must have missed the headlines that stated record numbers of whites are registering and voting.

Could you post those for me?

Even though you know they are both horrible, I bet you know at least the positions of each candidate.

It's selective audio. They could have asked hundreds of people, and only chose to air the three people that would have proved them right.

I could ask hundreds of McCain/Palin supports, "Do you agree on Palin's view that all women should lose their right to vote," even though it's not her view, and of the majority might say "no," but the few will say yes will provide me with the audio I need to post something like Howard did.

How many people did they interview?

How many corrected the surveyor?

How many said they didn't agree with the policies?

I am sure that there will be a few whites who will vote for McCain just because he is white, but 90% (according to polls)of blacks are voting for Obama. Double standard? Racist?

I have a hard time believing that if you are a productive member of society and pay taxes that you think that Obama would be a better president.

I guarantee you'd be able to do the same for McCain. The issues are irrelevant, people barely understand them let alone vote based on them.

Man, I did not know whether to laugh or cry. All I could do while listening to this was shake my head. For some reason, I am always amazed, though I should not be, at how politically ignorant most Americans are. I agree with other posters of this thread that a similar "experiment" could be done at McCain / Palin rallies and it would yield similar results.

It is important to keep in mind though, Stern's show is for entertainment. I am sure they interviewed some people who said that the reporter was wrong in his statements. Given that this would not be particularly funny, it was not aired.

There are stupid people on Both sides. But I do find that on the Republican side not only are there so many uneducated on the subject, But because a black man is running for office there true "colors" are coming out with there old fashion racist minds. I hope the younger generation does not pick up there parents OLD views and values. We are the future and need to be positive and full of hope 'I don't mean just sit there and hope' I mean work for it! There are so many problems we are facing today and Obama nor McCain will be able to solve all situations. I personally feel 0BAMA is the step in the right direction! And urge you all to do the research for your self, and not let any sort of media make up your mind. People Be Smart not Stupid - VOTE 08AMA!

I disagree with your assessment that most republicans are uneducated on the issues. Quiet the contrary, we have studied the issues, and while we may not agree with every plank in the Republican platform, we feel that the Republican party is the best hope for the country.
I have also studied the Democratic point of view, because I am an independent. While Obama has a couple of good ideas, he presents himself as a centrist while in fact, he is the most liberal senator in office.
His ideas are so socialist that if he is elected with a democratically controlled congress, this country will have it's constitution ripped to shreds and an we will be known as the United Socialist States of America.
I did not agree with the bailout that congess passed, and I agree that we will suffer for it. But if Obama is elected, with a democratically controlled congress he will, I fear, take this country to a the edge of a precipice from which we will not be able to back up from.

One more thing. Obama has been extremely disrespectful when he has addressed Senator McCain during he debates. While McCain used proper ettiquette in a address Obama as "Senator" or "Senator Obama," Obama always referred to McCain as "John." This is disrespectful to Senator McCain, for his service in the Senate, and to his years. This disrespect will spill of to show his total contempt for the branches of government, the constitution, and the American people.

Whoa! Nice catch on Stern's part, even though I think the guy is a shmuck.

Yup, I see there are blind followers of Obama's. Well then, the more, the merrier

Sorry but that really sounds quite hollow. Look, the Republican President and his cohort have already quietly dismantled some of basic constitutional rights. What's your take on that? On the other hand, I really don't see how the health insurance policy proposed to Obama relates to the US being named "Socialist".

You're correct.

This clip is also edited to exclude the McCain supporter(s) who fell for the same gag only reversed. They were just as thrilled with McCain's choice of "Biden" as his running mate...

It's sad that there so many uneducated voters on both sides of the aisle. :shk:

Have you ever stopped to think that maybe you fear white people? With a statement like that, you would think we are some racist nefarious race of people.

Yes there is proof.

There is another YouTube Stern video on this same subject that is longer and unedited (F-bomb alert) and asks that very question.

Do a search but POST at your own risk.

Yes you are probably correct but isn't that what the MSM do on a regular basis?
How many times have they "selectively" interviewed the one 'ignernt' red-neck in the crowd and try to paint everyone that has that same belief with the same brush?
Don't get me started.
