All this Obama bashing in these threads, mostly by the same people who whine when you make a bad comment about Bush

Alright genius, explain change...what exactly about our great nation do we need to change so desperately? Pompous...absolutely...I am heads above the likes of you and other followers of Obama. That makes me arrogant, and the synonym for that is "proud"...proud that I am smart enough to see through the rhetoric spewed-forth by an individual who would turn our nation inside-out.
I'll give you "pompous", "arrogant" and "proud", but definitely not "smart". If you were, indeed, "smart" you would be able to do more than accuse him of turning "our nation inside out". The Obama bashers are fully unequipped to offer more than the broadest criticisms, all personal and vague.

The fact that you need to tell anonymous posters you know little about, that you are "heads above them" speaks volumes about your insecurities. Perhaps if you are unable to tell us what policies of Obamas that you object to, you could tell us who you do support and what policies of theirs that you find attractive.

Cathy, in all of my life as a political scientist, and having attended plenty of campaign events and rallies, yesterday was the first time I heard a campaign event kicked off with the national anthem. I'm not sure how that fits into your questioning patriotism narrative, but there you go.

Where was the flag of the United States of America. Obama rarely uses that as a backdrop during his speeches. I am becoming more and more suspcious of a man that is running for the President of the United States of America and won't salute our flag, or even wear a flag lapel pin. I question his patriotism. Among other things.

I'm voting for neither, as I am not a socialist and I have actually paid attention to their specific policies, wherever they can be gleaned apart from all of the speechmaking pap and blather. They can both talk all day. All of you useful idiots who are enamored by speeches but do little background homework can be satisfied in knowing you have fallen for words positioned just vaguely enought to enchant and appeal to you.
That is why you are called useful idiots.
Unfortunately for me it will be a vote for the lesser of all of the evils. I hope that they both destroy each other at the convention.
Instead you enjoy fascism. You enjoy our government being run by corporations and little power to people and society.
"protection of corporate power is an essential part of fascism. Historian Gaetano Salvemini argued in 1936 that fascism makes taxpayers responsible to private enterprise, because "the State pays for the blunders of private enterprise... Profit is private and individual. Loss is public and social."---Salvemini, Gaetano. Under the Axe of Fascism 1936.
You obviously support McCain. The guy that has surrounded himself and has his campaign run by lobbyists. Do these lobbyists and McCain have the people or the corporations they lobby for as their master? Notice the Bill of Rights guarantees the rights to the people, not to the corporations.

Is is necessary to insult others to get your point across? That in my view is not a "good choice" or "real clear thinking."
I'm using sarcasm as make my point that phony flag waving and pandering does not make one a great candidate.

Its amazing how some people are falling for this Change motto. Obama isn't changing anything. He is doing what others have done- saying one thing and then doing another. He talks against Nafta then tells the Canadians not to worry -its just campaign talk. When he is confronted with it he lies until there is evidence, then he give another speech to cover it up. He tells you he worked for slumlord Rezko for "5 hours"- another lie, there is a long association between them and hundreds of thousands of dollars in deals and influence. He says he didnt hear racist Pastor Wrights cursing of American and the n when he is confronted with the evidence he gives another speech to actually defend that church. He takes money from gas and oil companies and then says he will not be controlled by lobbyists. He is for the "people voting" but then tries to stop the Florida vote because he lost here after camapaigning on T.V. He says he is for Health care and the poor yet his wife works for the Univ of Chicago hospital that charges minorities without insurance 5 times more than whites with it. Michelle says she came from a poor background, yet her upper middle calss brick home shows what a farce that is. Obama was handed legislation in illinois and he claimed it as his own after others had worked hard on it- he steam rolled others there and then spit in their face. He says he was "against the war but has voted numerous times to keep on funding it and he even voted aginst troop withdrawals. Wake up people. The list goes on and on. Who knows what the Republicans will dig up on him when they are backed to the wall.

The NAFTA story is BS. The Canadian Embassy in Washington released a statement essentially backing up the Obama camp's version of the meeting between adviser Austan Goolsbee and officials at the Canadian consulate in Chicago.-Forbes.com
The Florida vote? You can't change the rules in the middle of the game. Too bad for Hillary.
WHO CARES what the Republicans can dig up? Obama didn't say we could be in Iraq for 100 years. Obama didn't change his tune 3 or 4 times regarding torture.
At least Obama didn't claim he was ducking for cover from sniper fire.

On Monday, the Obama campaign responded to Hillary unveiling a comprehensive plan to deal with the housing crisis by attacking her for taking contributions connected to subprime lenders. Campaign manager David Plouffe said:“If we’re really going to crack down on the practices that caused the credit and housing crises, we’re going to need a leader who doesn’t owe those industries any favors.”
As it turns out, those were just words… Today, Senator Obama gives an economy speech followed by a fundraiser at - you guessed it - one of the top 10 issuers of subprime loans in America, Credit Suisse. In fact, Senator Obama has taken more money from the top 10 issuers of subprime loans than BOTH Senator Clinton and Senator McCain [cq.com].
- Obama has taken $1,180,103 from the top issuers of subprime loans.[cq.com]

I do not support amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Securing our borders is one of our highest priorities, the other Outsourcing our jobs. English is the language of the United States. If non-English speaking individuals want to be in this Country, they need to learn the language at their expense, NOT the taxpayers! The Senate Bill 1348 is not strong enough… Congress has put this immigration bill on hold… Congress needs to do their JOBS OR GET OUT! These problems have been here long before the 2008 elections. Congress is corrupt... look what happened to Sibel Edmonds. THE DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICANS ARE BOTH GUILTY! MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE WASTED ON PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS. TO DATE OVER 1.4 BILLION DOLLARS AND GROWING! Obama’s spending on his campaign is the highest in history! IS THIS WHAT YOU CALL CHANGE. The only thing that the Democratic and Republicans agreed on is increasing THEIR SALARIES! GREED!!! While millions of people have lost their homes. In addition, cannot afford to put food on their table and many more Millions of Americans are struggling. SUPPORT PUBLICLY FINANCED CAMPAIGNS – Support reform to increase Congressional transparency – Support Vote to end earmarks – and NO more money from Lobbyists or PAC’s… THE GOVERNMENT IS SUPPOSED TO WORK FOR US THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND! THE TIME AS COME FOR US TO TAKE BACK OUR GREAT NATION! JOIN THE MARCH FOR A CLEAN AMERICA!!!
