Not one of your so called facts is true. This tells me that you have not done your research into the Truth.
Ignorance is not an excuse to spread lies.
The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.” Maybe the guy I share my office with got a special edition or something, but it's right there on page 261, highlighted, underlined and circled.
My reasoning might sound very twisted for not voting for Obama - but here goes. I believe the next 4 years are going to be utter h*ll here in America between the financial mess and foreign wackos. By 2012, our country is going to be in such the pits, that whomever is president will most likely be labeled "the worst president ever" - even if it's not his/her fault (and it probably won't be). No one will remember Bush's inactions. So, do you really want to see someone who is "making history" right now then get labeled "the worst president ever" 4 years later? As much as I liked Hillary and voted for her in the primaries, I'm glad "the first woman" won't be getting elected president during this awful time either. I think McCain can better handle the title of "worst president ever." Twisted, eh?
im glad im not alone , i wonder if god took the day off when he made these peoples brains

come on man. you know what, im gonna be honest. i googled what was posted in quotes, and went through a 2 pages in google on that quote, and that is how i found out it was a flat out, out of context lie, and thats the only reason i posted it, because after research i found it to not be true. now, you dare sit behind your computer and tell me im wrong, and claim that it is in his book,
wow, sir, wow. why do you choose to b#@!^
so basically your saying, you didnt vote for obama, because if he messes up, not only will he mess up, but he will be a black man messing up, in a country that is already very racially sensitive.
do you even think, or are you some type of internet bot that post stupid garbage every other hour or so. you cant be human
i could not even fathom being so blatantly ignorant
you know what, im gonna be honest. i googled what was posted in quotes

The rest of the world is rooting for a democrat victory. That in itself speaks volumes,
This guy has come up too fast, too far. When do you remember another politician ever rising so far so fast? He's not that good; he must have someone behind him, and it ain't the American public I'm talking about..
His voice brings up the hairs on the back of my neck. .
His philosophy, his associations, tell me that he is in the back pocket of some very bad people.
My own reasons are based upon a gut feeling:

If he will not produce his birth certificate than you CAN'T vote for him. If he is legal then he produces it and that goes away. Plus, if he starts redistributes wealth like he says then the economy is done for good. He is a nightmare. I was going to vote 3rd party but now I have to vote McDumb. We are all screwed!
So Jimmy, you didn't pick up his book and turn to page 261? And what, if it's on Google it has to be the truth? Truth be told, I haven't voted yet. But I can tell you I'm not going to vote for "O" for the same reason I wouldn't promote you to the head of your company after being on the job for 143 days. He aint ready, the country has questions and we either can't ask them, or if we do, we have hell to pay if he stumbles for the right answer.
Live up to your own standards before accusing someone else of ignorance
