US canít afford Global Poverty Act

Obama wants change. Obama wants to eradicate poverty. Obama wants American citizens to pay for this!
Obama has sponsored the Global Poverty Act (S.2433), which could eventually force American taxpayers to fork over 0.7 percent of our nation's gross domestic product or $845 billion over 13 years over and above what America already spends on third world countries.
In 2006, foreign aid programs cost American taxpayers about $300 billion.
This plan has already passed the House of Representatives because most members did not know what was in it.(Isn't that great?)
This is a blueprint for a world government owned and operated by the United Nations.
Please tell the senators to kill this un-American bill.
Send this to all your friends.

I'm guessing that by switching McGovern hopes for some type of quid pro quo should Mr. Obama win both the nomination and the general election.

Perhaps something in regards to FARC?

They run back and forth like the lost boys from Peterpan and Rufio.

No loyalty, I recall a story of McGovern during his most dire needed time everybody abandoned him except for the Clintons.

NPR 2 months ago played an interview with McGovern where he said he was going to stick with Hillary no matter what.

He's like the rest of the animals at least dogs are loyal! he sits and waits for scraps under the table of the feast.

http://www.sunshineproject.org Thank you Senator McGovern for changing your support and backing Senator Obama. Everybody look at this website. It exposes the Bush, Clinton conspiracy to genetically reconstruct the 1918 lethal SPANISH FLU VIRUS! Is this the new BIRD FLU Bush warned was coming. McCain is up to his neck in this too! Stop the Bush's, and Clinton's Comuazi era! Obama, Richardson 08

Flashback to 1972: McGovern carried Massachusetts and DC. Nixon carried 49 states. Who cares what McGovern says? Why not ask Mondale, Dukakis, Gore or Kerry what they think? Can you spell... LOSER?

Ok - I see - so the UN is going to take over the world.

Yes, that makes sense. Wow - you sure do know a lot about Obama.

Come on Cheney - stop with the scare tactics. The American people are not falling for this bs anymore.

So VPs - who will it be folks?

Sorry Hillary it just did not work out. Time to move on. We need to unite Americans behind Obama.

We need to now focus on the grumpy old man with the bad temper that calls his wife the "C" word.
