Thanks for the bio on your family, but how does that tell us that any of you know anything about Obama's policies? As far as we know, you would do as
poorly as the people interviewed on those two videos.
Wow way to take that out of context. I never said it had anything to do with Obamas policies now did I? My question is what do these questions posed
in that video have to do with anyones policies? Nothing thats what.
By the way, You forgot to mention the part where I specifically said anyone can twist info to make it look like a group of people are uneducated. That
does not make it so though. You misread what I typed. either that or you are just picking and choosing so as to make it look like I dont know what im
talking about. You fail though as I will answer the questions. scroll down to see.
No, it's just your illogical interpretation of the thread.
I wasnt talking about the whole thread, I was talking about one post in particular. You may have seen it, It was the one I replied to. It was yours I
was replying to. It was not aimed at the whole thread. just your post. Twas you who made the illogical interpretation my friend.
Thanks for the
laugh. It is a fact that the post made by you earlier has nothing to do with this thread and you know it! if you think it does then please explain how
the phrase " you arent making sense, you are just trying to derail the thread" has anything do with a few people not know these trivia questions?
That said. here are the answers to the trivia questions asked in the video. I say trivia becasue they have nothing to do with anyones actuall policy.
Its just questiosn of opinion or who said what?
1. Which party currently controls congress?
The democratic party.
2. Who is Barney Frank?
He is a politician. he is in the US house. He represents Massachusetts 4th congressional district.
3. Nanci Pelosi?
Speaker of the house of the United States House of representatives
4. Harry Reid?
Senior US senator/democrat
5.What do I think of barney frank? ( a matter of opinion)
He is a jewish man with a voice that I find somewhat annoying. He is an avid fighter for civil rights. He is openly gay. If im not mistaken he had a
gay sex scandla of his own once. All in all I think he is a decent guy.
6. what do I think of Nancy pelosi? (again with opinions)
nancy pelosi is the speaker of the house. I must admit I am a bit dissapointed in her. I thought that once the congress was democratic controlled, the
bush admin would have some opposition finally. In my eyes she hasnt done much of anything.
7. What do I think of Harry reid? ( like an opinion of these three people matters when it comes to voting for president)
Harry reid, I dissagree with him on some issues but over all I think he is an ok guy. I think Gay people have the right to get married he doesnt. I am
against the death penalty he is for it.
8. Which person wore clothes that their party spent $150,000 on?
9. Which has a pregnant teenage daughter?
10. Who said they could see russia from their house ( a trick question because it doesnt give them the two clips to view) Tina fey or Sara Palin?
11.Which candidate claimed to have campained in 57 states?
12. which candidate won their first election by getting their opponents kicked off the ballot?
Before he answered it for us, I was thinking it was obama as well, but in all fairness I wasnt 100% sure
13.Which candidate said that Obama would be tested in the first 6 months by an international crisis?
14.Which candidate had to quit a past campain because they were found to have plagerized a speech?
Joe biden again.
15.Which candidate would likely bankrupt the coal industry?
Obama according to that clip. I didnt know the answer to this one.
16.Which said the government should redistribute the wealth? (even thought the actual quote said " I think that if we spread the wealth around its
good for everybody)
17. What do you think of bill Ayers? ( opinion again)
I think bill ayers is a former activist who took things to far. Bombs are a no no. He is reformed though and is NOT A TERRORIST! if im not mistaken he
is a proffesor now.
18 who do I get my news from?
Its a mix of cnn foxnews, NPR, BBC etc...
I have answered all the questions as best I could. I think I did pretty well.
Now my question for you is what do any of those questions have to do with intelligence or education? The majority have absolotley nothing to do with
the 2008 presedential election. The others had some vague relationship to it.
The video was a pointless one. The questions had nothing to do with the policy of any candidates. It was a trivia game is all. Are you satisfied now
that an obama supporter has answered these questions correctly? I bet you arent.
john McCain lost fair and square. He conceded because he knew he lost fair and square. He got over the fact that he was beaten by Obama fair and
square. Now when am I going to stop seeing people trying to find things to pick on obama ans his supporters for? Are you afraid that you will be left
behind because he has different political beliefs?
Do you not realize that he has asked for all the american citizens help to make sure the US gets out of this whole that was dug by the bush admin?
Do you not realize that he wants to fix our country and will use whatever plan neccasary even if it was created by a republican? DO you not realize he
has been asking for political advice from John McCain and other republicans?
You have nothing to fear my friend. Obama is a very intelligent man. he is williing to accept help . Are you willing to help get our country back in
shape? We were thrown into a pretty deep whole over the last 8 years. We will need all the help we can get to get out of that whole. So what do you
