Over the last week, I have been approached by people on the streets, ferries, float planes, and in the gym who have tried to ascertain my feelings regarding Mr. Full Story

THE POWER OF THE SPOKEN WORD----WORDS MATTER!-----THANKS Tim Russert
We are at a defining moment in out history," said Obama. "The American people have lost faith in their government."
...Obama seems to concede the idea that Clinton is a master of the political game, but he argues that the game fundamentally poorly serves the average voter.(ref: the fix)
We are not right or left.
We are not for a party or against a party.
We are the voter that help get you ELECTED.
If Hillary Clinton cannot keep her promise to americans today in Up State New York-----she will not be the great leader for america future. A strong self Image come before the people.

Hillary Clinton’s Irrational Exuberance
The senator’s job-creating promises ring hollow.
29 February 2008
How much faith should we put in the economic proposals of a presidential candidate who has previously made outrageous and unrealistic pledges to create jobs and then failed to deliver? That was essentially the question that NBC’s Tim Russert posed last Tuesday, when he asked Senator Hillary Clinton if her promise to generate 5 million new jobs as president wasn’t “a little exuberant,” given that she had made a similar pledge during her first New York senatorial run—to create 200,000 jobs in upstate New York. That promise, Russert pointed out, came to nothing; in fact, upstate New York had actually lost jobs since 2000.
TIM RUSSERT WORDS ARE STILL ALIVE BEFORE HILLARY CLINTON TODAY!

Wait until you get the report of God. CHANGE---REFORM----UNITY---ANO THER POSITION----MOVEMENT.
VOID ----EMPTY---AND DARK PROMISES NEED MOVEMENT--ANOTHER POSITION----PRODUCE-----GLORY!

Behind the false promise lie a truth that will make you question.
Who is the real Hillary Clinton and what is her real purpose?
Clinton has been giving this ridiculous answer to the question about the missing 200,000 jobs ever since her Senate reelection bid in 2006, and the media, for the most part, haven’t challenged her.

IN Tim Russert DEATH GOD PRODUCE LIFE----A LIVING WORD!
One's real purpose never die---the real purpose always have everlasting life.
Tim is the reason many student became a part of this election because of words.
Obama say words matter!

The American voter told MCCAIN---PALIN--BUSH REPUBLICANS-- RNC SHELBY AND DNC TO KEEP JOBS ALIVE IN AMERICA.
WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT THE TRANSPORTATION JOBS IN AMERICA. MR. SHELBY AND CONGRESS STOP SAYING WHAT CAN'T BE DONE. CREATE A TEAM TO BRING ABOUT A POSITIVE CHANGE FOR ALL AMERICANS. PUT POSITIVE CHANG BEFORE AMERICANS AND LET ALL SUBMIT A DESIGN - PLAN- AND METHOD OF EXECUTION TO HELP KEEP JOBS IN THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM (write it down). HOW CAN WE KEEP AMERICAN CARS ALIVE?

Now Clinton is making similar economic promises nationally—not just 5 million new jobs, but also new “green” industries and a sharp reduction in childhood poverty. Why should we believe her? ref:Steven Malanga

The new voter will not vote the party system in the future just ask Bush-republicans.
