Biggest crock! NObama was brought up Muslim, what does John Kerry actually know? Nothing more than the average person voting in November that's for sure.
These two idiots are like peas in a pod.

Barack Obama is a nobody that anybody can trust--
And what the heck is John Kerry doing anyway with Obama-- does he think he might be the next VP if he is cuddling up with him. Get a life Kerry-- give your money to good, honest people. Go home.

John Heinz Kerry should show all the people of Israel that nifty picture of the non-muslim Obama in his Muslim outfit! Very snappy looking. I'm sure that will go over well in Israel and make them feel very at ease with Osama...I mean Obama!

Senator Obama not placing his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. Senator Obama refusing to wear a flag pin. Senator Obama’s wife signaling her true feelings “for the first time in my life I am proud of my country”

Senator Obama is not a friend of Israel and his loyalties to his own country should be brought into question.

Vote McCain in November, a true American hero.

ON BEING A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN...PART I
Being a patriotic American comes from inside your heart...you don't wear it on your lapel!! And Michelle Obama is right...the last 8 years over 70% of Americans are not proud...due to the Moron-in-Chief...Dubya...
Vote for the future of america...a man with Integrity, intelligence and vision...not a McBish who nothing but a big Flip flopper...
In 1999, McCain was in New Hampshire, campaigning for the GOP nomination as a moderate. He proclaimed himself a pro-life candidate, but told reporters that “in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade.” He explained that overturning Roe would force “women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations.” Yesterday, campaigning for the GOP nomination as a conservative, McCain said the opposite.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me ask one question about abortion. Then I want to turn to Iraq. You’re for a constitutional amendment banning abortion, with some exceptions for life and rape and incest.
MCCAIN: Rape, incest and the life of the mother. Yes.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So is President Bush, yet that hasn’t advanced in the six years he’s been in office. What are you going to do to advance a constitutional amendment that President Bush hasn’t done?
MCCAIN: I don’t think a constitutional amendment is probably going to take place, but I do believe that it’s very likely or possible that the Supreme Court should — could overturn Roe v. Wade, which would then return these decisions to the states, which I support…. Just as I believe that the issue of gay marriage should be decided by the states, so do I believe that we would be better off by having Roe v. Wade return to the states.
The old McCain didn’t want an amendment and didn’t want Roe overturned. The new McCain completely disagrees with the old McCain.
It’s worth noting that politicians’ opinions on abortion can, and often do,“evolve” over time. Dick Gephardt and Al Gore, for example, both opposed abortion rights before eventually becoming pro-choice. With this in mind, McCain’s unexpected shift may simply reflect yet another pol whose thinking has changed over time.
Or, far more likely, McCain is once again abandoning any pretense of consistency and integrity, and is now willing to say literally anything to win.

And here is the second part

Let’s return, once again, to McCain’s flourishing flip-flop list, which is now a Top 11 list.
* McCain criticized TV preacher Jerry Falwell as “an agent of intolerance” in 2002, but has since decided to cozy up to the man who said Americans “deserved” the 9/11 attacks.(Indeed, McCain has now hired Falwell’s debate coach.)
* McCain used to oppose Bush’s tax cuts for the very wealthy, but he reversed course in February.
* In 2000, McCain accused Texas businessmen Sam and Charles Wyly of being corrupt, spending “dirty money” to help finance Bush’s presidential campaign. McCain not only filed a complaint against the Wylys for allegedly violating campaign finance law, he also lashed out at them publicly. In April, McCain reached out to the Wylys for support.
* McCain supported a major campaign-finance reform measure that bore his name. In June, he abandoned his own legislation.
* McCain used to think that Grover Norquist was a crook and a corrupt shill for dictators. Then McCain got serious about running for president and began to reconcile with Norquist.
* McCain took a firm line in opposition to torture, and then caved to White House demands.
* McCain gave up on his signature policy issue, campaign-finance reform, and won’t back the same provision he sponsored just a couple of years ago.
* McCain was against presidential candidates campaigning at Bob Jones University before he was for it.
* McCain was anti-ethanol. Now he’s pro-ethanol.
* McCain was both for and against state promotion of the Confederate flag.
* And now he’s both for and against overturning Roe v. Wade.
It’s not exactly a newsflash that McCain is veering ridiculously to the right in a rather shameless attempt to reinvent himself, but Dems should take advantage of the situation and help establish the narrative now. Despite his rather embarrassing record of late, we still have major media figures telling the public that “no one would accuse McCain of equivocating on anything.”
Now is the time to begin characterizing McCain — accurately — as a man with no principle beliefs. Dems should not only criticize McCain’s constantly evolving opinions on nearly everything, they should openly mock him for it now, so that the storyline becomes second nature (like the GOP did with “serial exaggerator” Al Gore).
The nation is seeing McCain 2.0...

Subj: FW: Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a Texas Rancher whose hand had been caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually, the topic got around to Obama and his bid for the presidency.

The old rancher said, Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked,'What is a post turtle'?

The old rancher said, When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.

'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he sure as heck doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there and you just wonder what kind of an idiot put him there in the first place.'

Senator Obama’s political and religious connections are exceedingly alarming. It’s most fascinating and rather entertaining how his supporters find him so unspoiled.

What is not humorous is his ability to convince his supporters that a politician running for the office he seeks is a man with great integrity and impeccable values. Your laundry list of McCain’s alleged faults can be equally as long for Obama.(support for Tony Rezko, Chicago Mayor Daley, Reverend Wright, etc…)

What separates you from me is my ability to understand that EVERY candidate (and I have voted both Democrat and Republican) does not reach the political heights these two men have without having a skeptical past.

Then again, I bet you still believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny!!

PS – I’ll meet you half way and give you the flag pin comment, I guess that does not symbolize patriotism however, it’s peculiar your candidate is now wearing one! Hmmmm, could that be considered a “flip-flop” move based on politics?
