My thoughts and prayers with them all. Just remember that I am praying that he will lose the election also!
I agree...the death of his grandmother is a sad event...I extend my sympathy to the Obama family, however, it will not change my vote and hopes for a McCain victory.

Hello "getagrip".
1. Go McCain is not rude, how dare you look down on someone for supporting a canidate.
2. You are the ignorant one, just the fact that you butcher the English language is enough for me to believe you drank the Obama Hussain / Granholm kool aid.
Since YOU are the one who needs to getagrip, let me help you.
1. Your should be You're the way you used it
2. Rude, ignorant, and person should not be capitalized.
3. The second "your" should be capitalized and be "You're" again.
4. The second "Ignorant" should not be capitalized again.
Anyone who can make seven mistakes in under two sentences should not be making the types of remarks you are. No wonder Michigan is in such good shape 'eh?
You are obviously Canadian!

I'm insulted that you are a black christian woman instead of an American Christian Woman. The fact that you had to use the word black shows that you still hold on to the race sh it yourself. MORON!!!!
No wonder you think this way. you and al the other paste eating idiots at you almost lily white school.

How many blacks go there again? Twelve?

Maybe when you grow up some and become a man or woman instead of a teenager you will actually realize that the world is a far, far larger place than you think it is. It will NOT be contained by the narrowness of your mind and obviously, your soul.

Come back and talk to us after you have been to more than one third-world country anywhere and tell us how you think white, anlgo-saxon, christian values WORK there, ok?

Meanwhile, shut the Hell up. Please.

This is such a load of CRAP! Black people realized long before anyone else that they were created in the likeness of God. You see, when slaves were beaten and treated like animals all they had to hold onto was their faith in GOD.
I hate to break this to you, but that's not historically accurate or supported in historic literature. African slaves in the early US held a wide range of religious beliefs and practices most of them not Christian. Those that were Christian were introduced to that faith by those that enslaved them.

And this comes from "Republican Christians"! Well, I'm sure this is not what Jesus would do or say. If you're any indication of what Republicans are like then I know for sure I made the right decision to vote Democratic this year. You are really mean and nasty people!
So are you a democrat Christian?
I just can't vote for someone that approves taking the life of and innocent unborn child, approves same sex marriage, and taking my money and giving it to someone else just because he feels they need it more than me.
Wake up people, this election isn't a game, it's serious business. Think about what this means for the next 20-30 years, not just the next 4 years.

First of all..it a shame that she has died. I'm sure the timing wasn't up to her or anyone but God. I hope this doesn't tilt the election towards Obama..we've all lost our grandparents and our parents. Should neither help, nor hinder him. It's life. Period. He should be very ashamed if he uses this for "points". He or anyone else.
Tilt the election in his direction? WTF? It's been tilted in his direction for the last month, he's going to win and he didn't need his grandma dying to it.

Excuse me, but he or she doesn't have to "shut the HELL up"
This person had a right to their opionion, just as you do. This person had a valid point, and American Women or an American Man, why does color have to come into it. This country should be way past that. Maybe the young children of today, could teach us something.

You know, This is my first time voting and I have been on the fence about which way to vote. The ads have been very confusing and I don't know who's telling the truth. Both my parents passed away within the last 3 years and I haven't had anyone to guide me in really understanding the issues. My friend told me to log on to woodtv.com and read the posts about politics. Now I wish she hadn't because I thought for sure I would get some GOOD, INSIGHTFUL information but what I have found is so much negativity, fighting, and a whole lot of mean spirited people. I'm not sure if any of you really mean the things that you've said but it hasn't given me much insight on the issues. I think this forum is the worst of them all and maybe because I know what it's like to lose a parent. I am confused at how we can call ourselves American yet some of you have so much hatred and disdain in your hearts. I guess I'll make my decision when I get to the polls tomorrow.
We will pray for guidance for you in the voting process. Let God be your guide.

How many "whachos" do not understand the death of a grandmother who really wanted her gradson to get best possible education? I had a grandmother of that calibre - Hello, pay sme respect and what is this rubbish about "first Muslim president/" Open your eyes and see what matters to the people in this world is not black, white , purple or green skin colours, but the human quality!

Poor lady, I hope she lived a blessed life. I think it's a sign. If her grandson was going to be elected, she would have hung on to see it. But she didn't God rest her soul. That's one less vote for the radical socialist liar that he is.

Maybe when you stop sucking di ck and get an education yourself someone might think you are spewing something meaningful other than diseased cu m
I have a college education, you idiot. I have a BA from the University of South Florida, Tampa. A school of about 40,000 students with way more international clout and exposure than your Dutch Reformed (Light) college. Especially GVSU that has more than a few sexually repressed homosexuals on its faculty. Why are they NOT allowed to openly express who/what they are?

In fact, the administration of your school had for years denied them same-sex benefits based solely upon their orientation and not for fiscal reasons.

So stick that where the sun don't shine, sport.

Oh, and I thought my words were quite smart, timely and meaningful.

It is your words that have no meaning or literary value. How much effort did it take for you to come up with words like sucking d;ck or diseased c-um?

Apparently, not much...even paste eating, thumb sucking infantile morons like yourself can easily sink to the lowest common denominator.

All it takes is for anyone with a superior intellect and vocabulary to get you to do it.

Cue stupid, rabid and vacuous responses...now...
