I was iffy on which direction to cast my vote. After hearing Palin speak there is No More Question. MCCAIN, PALIN!

Don't be so quick to over look the fact that Obama sat and ate dinner next to a man who verbally tore down America and our values for 20 years!

Or the group that opened and closed several low-income housing projects in Obama's district... Claiming not to have enough money to keep family's from freezing in the dead cold of a Chicago winter- Yet at that same exact time they somehow found a way to come up with some extra cash to send Obama's way... LOOK INTO IT, ITS A FACT!

Change, Change, Change... But his history of FLIP-Flopping shows more of the same. He and Kerry should go bowling.

Obama is a Lawyer who tries to say what we want to hear... All The Time. That worries me.

Michelle Obama Steered Lucrative Contract to Axelrod

Family Politics Chicago-Style...

Let's see... The G-D AmeriKKKa Jeremiah Wright shocker, the Rezko scandal, the Pfleger filth, and the relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers were a few of the shocking stories that would have absolutely killed a respectable Republican's career. ...

...But not Barack Obama... Not to his faithful devotees in the mainstream media anyway.

Well, you can add another item to your list.

Here's the latest story that squeaked its way into the media complete with a cast that includes: Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, Tony Rezko, Governor Blagojevich, David Axelrod and more.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported:

Sen. Barack Obama's wife and three close advisers have been involved with a program at the University of Chicago Medical Center that steers patients who don't have private insurance -- primarily poor, black people -- to other health care facilities.

Michelle Obama -- currently on unpaid leave from her $317,000-a-year job as a vice president of the prestigious hospital -- helped create the program, which aims to find neighborhood doctors for low-income people who were flooding the emergency room for basic treatment. Hospital officials say such patients hinder their ability to focus on more critically ill patients in need of specialized care, such as cancer treatment and organ transplants.

Obama's top political strategist, David Axelrod, co-owns the firm, ASK Public Strategies, that was hired by the hospital last year to sell the program -- called the Urban Health Initiative -- to the community as a better alternative for poor patients. Obama's wife and Valerie Jarrett, an Obama friend and adviser who chairs the medical center's board, backed the Axelrod firm's hiring, hospital officials said.

Another Obama adviser and close friend, Dr. Eric Whitaker, took over the Urban Health Initiative when he was hired at U. of C. in October 2007. Whitaker previously had been director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Obama has said he recommended Whitaker for the state job, giving his name to Tony Rezko, who helped Gov. Blagojevich assemble his Cabinet. Rezko, a former fund-raiser for Obama and Blagojevich, was convicted in June on federal corruption charges tied to state deals.

...Sen. John McCain, Obama's Republican opponent, criticized the Democratic presidential hopeful Friday for having pledged on the campaign trail to expand health care for Americans at the same time his top political strategist "was running a campaign to cut coverage for the poor."

Axelrod, whose firm stopped working on the project in October, responded that he was concerned that presidential politics was distorting the university's efforts to improve health care for poor people and to lower costs.

Whitaker, who has traveled with Obama on the presidential campaign trail, chalked up the criticism to people opposed to change.
The only ones missing from that story are his Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright!...
Then again, maybe Wright blessed the G-D deal.

For a young politician- Barack Obama has quite a history, and it aint pretty.
Chicago-style politics, baby.

The Obama - Biden 2008 Traveling Salvation Show

Just when the weekend was over and you thought it was safe to be back on the drunk democrat laden streets of the Quad Cities, the Barack Obama - Joe Biden Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation show makes an appearance in the Quad Cities. Hallelujah - Brothers and Sisters - don’t be late and pass the plate!!!(Biden is sitting this visit out) His holiness Pope Obama is scheduled to bring his Pied Piper routine to town this morning. As the Neil Diamond song goes–> pack up the babies and grab the old ladies. Then get them out of harm’s way because not everyone goes as this is a by invitation only appearance. Evidently the POTUS wannabe is afraid of actually having to answer questions from sober nonbelievers. Not that should be surprising since political con artists like Obama avoid people that can see past their phony mantras. So PLEASE find a safe place as all the mesmerized rats will be stampeding to consume the poison passed out at the Obama snake oil show. All Politicians are phonies but Obama happens to be the current leader of the charlatan pack. His group is like a Jim Jones gathering - everyone anxious to drink his poison kool-aid and attempting to force feed those that see through his empty campaign speeches. His message is a media fabricated game of smoke and mirrors that seems to create an heroin overdosed state of being where his audience is incapable of free thought. I am sure there will be soon be the usual posts across the Internet Universe from his awestruck stoned followers championing his phony messages of hope and change. Not here, for I deal in reality not fantasy rock stars. Nothing good can come from such blind euphoric obedience to hucksters like Obama.
