The Republicans' disengagement (media bias), if not disillusionment, with the economic campaign issues is borne out by the fact that many more Republicans are able to explain, extinguish, and excoriate the name Barrack Obama with the term (JIHAD), than can name Bush/Dick Cheney and McCain -- as the Big Oil -- BIG HALLIBURTAN politicians expanding GOP IRAQ WAR ideology, and Republican White House Party Elders' GI Bill of Rights for the 21st century IRAQ WAR ECONOMY. Even among Tupac Shakur, Bob Marley, Muhammad Ali, Ben Holt, Cotton-Club to Lenox Club- a.k.a. "The Breakfast Club," Staples Singers In Ghana 1971: "When Will We Get Paid," Paul Robeson, DMX or Jay-Z ... excerpts from the infamous Malcolm X speech “The Ballot or the Bullet” inexperienced Obama and conservative Republicans: Clinton is much more visible than GOP presumptive candidate John McCain towards affecting positively the important economic issues facing America's middle class economy. Next, Speaking at an awards banquet for the Society of Professional Journalists on April 4, "Phoenix New Times" and Village Voice Media Inc. Executive Editor Michael Lacey used the "N-word" to refer to a former colleague who voted for the godless, money-laundering, call-girl-reach-around loving liberal McCain, who collaborated with the Viet Cong, hides a Rx- cyanide pill in his check, and secretly fathered a black child with a Unicorn Crępe Suzette look-alike, who turned out to become -- you guessed it -- Barack Obama?

When asked who they would vote for in the general election for president of the United States, the natural pendulum swing in America is approximately 79% of Republicans named Hillary Clinton as their choice. Reasons for Obama's Campaign Crisis "GLORK" Campaign Crisis include:

No excuses. Sen. Obama accepted more money from oil company executives last month than any other candidate, while he ran an ad saying he didn't take money from oil companies. Context of ad extends that oil money taken by IL Sen. Barrack Obama from BIG HALIBURTAN spells bad MO-Jo for Obama Campaign Crisis and RX for U.S. stock x-change = VX for U.S. economy. Sen. Obama's giveaways to the oil industry are not limited to tax breaks. They also include provisions like royalty relief that are worth billions. And many of the tax "increases" are simply extensions of existing taxes that do not impose any additional burden on oil companies. Exactly half of giveaways were not tax provisions. For instance, the oil companies received billions in royalty waivers. Obama voted for Big Oil -- BIG HALLIBURTAN Dick Cheney's 2005 energy bill containing "billions in dollars in giveaways to the oil companies." [ Ludacris ]

I think OBAMA needs to attend the ZZ TOP concert and take some time to just hang out with the OREGON PEOPLE.. In our own comfort Zone?? October 22 ZZ TOP will be here so come one come all Maybe he might be able too come party with the gang?
By the way someone asked me why I support Obama I replied because he is a MAN OF HIS WORD and that is what is missing in this world people who treat your promise as Gold In the pioneer days of Old we did not have many Law makers nor did we have such a Large government as a matter of Fact The government Workers were called PUBLIC SERVANTS and they were not paid they volunteered and got a living stipend. So lets go back to the past in the government and get rid of the damn waste and the pork barrel spending and United we stand and POWER TO THE PEOPLE!! Paul Mc Cartney is Proud of all who use his revolutionary songs to make peace come again!!! Lets Rock and roll people time is not on our side.. and By the way Its own turn to SHINE AS A STAR.. you don't have to be a star in this game to be loved and to be listened too.. He listens to the real folks and can't be corrupted.. On that he is a HOMETOWN HERO rightfully so.. So VOTE too many died in the Vietnam WAR to not vote. 58,000 Men were lost in our fight for freedom. and to make sure our Bill OF Rights Stays intact.
Many fought in the civil war for the right to Vote
many of our for fathers fought for the freedom of speech One man said " I may disagree with what you say but I will go to my death defending that right to say what you say" This is the honor that is missing in our society. The respect of our Planet the respect of all religions under god yes! And thats what all of this is about for your right to be free and to choose what ever religion and not to fear persecution. This is the way to Make oour world come together in our collective voice to STAND TALL AND NOT FORGET We were Lied to once, Never again.. Will the American people be taken for fools. Its time STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS and stand tall for your beliefs and never give up HOPE for better days to come and In the wink of an eye
we will enjoy the New Age.. All people in the whole world are watching our election. They need to believe we will win and together we will. Thanks for all your thoughts and dedication to get this American Experiment back on track.. the moving train of destiny is already on the tracks
and will be moving into the station in only a few weeks. COME ONE COME ALL LOVE ALWAYS WINS!!!!
Deb HOPE, yes thats my real name.... Eugene Oregon
