“A Sinking Campaigns Ship”
MS Change08 Captain: Were going down fast Senator, What do should we do?
Junior Senator Obama: Well, I don’t have any speech written for this issue, so save yourself jump ship.
MS Change08 Captain: Woman and children go first Senator!!!
Junior Senator Barack Obama’s credentials are meaningless. The Illinois State Senator isn’t remotely experienced to sit behind the desk in the oval office nor is he educated in (hands-On) US foreign affairs to represent the United States of America, as its President Commander in Chief. He lacks the very basic of skills to provide security to the Nation. The Democratic Party have raised expectations so high American voters believe “Change08 is coming,” the truth be told the only change will be from creased slacks to a tailored pant-suit; while in the mean time were stuck with the self-centered, increasingly arrogant Senator’s message of “Change08,” played out on his soap box.

From the state that gave the country Carol Mosley Braun and Peter Fitzgerald, we now have Barack Obama. What profound talent will you generate next?

Why should we believe that your light weight, home town, silver tongued, charlatan with no resume is really qualified to be president? Does he realize that he cannot vote "present" as president? You should tell him the job is much bigger and that hope is not a strategy he can employ when he sits down with the "winsome" leaders of North Korea, Iran, or some other despotic country. Or, perhaps, he, like GW Bush, believes that the eyes are the windows to the soul.

But, that might only work for Russian leaders.

There are so many highly qualified persons in the U.S., and this is the choice we have? When the dust settles, the Democratic nominating process needs a thorough overhaul. It's like choosing what tainted food to eat, both of which will make you sick. Reasoned individuals will not run for president as a Democrat because the process is so long, so convoluted and so demeaning. Would an Adlai Stevenson, a Franklin Roosevelt, a Harry Truman or a Woodrow Wilson make this run? No way. And no way will the top Democrats with proven records of achievement do so. What a mess!

Sorry, cannot comment much today, I have to go work on my Obama get out the vote door knocking today in my Republican town.

Hillary has NOTHING like this going on in Indiana, it is all ads, appearances, and spin. Obama has thousands of Hoosiers of all ages and colors and political backgrounds (including a significant number of Republicans) as volunteers.

Indiana is close to Ohio in many demographics, and while it may be close, I predict a win for Senator Obama. I certainly hope so. Time to go knock on my neighbor's doors!

It is worth noting that the primary in NC and IN and ultimately the election hinge on a bet by two of the candidates that low information voters will believe their preposterous assertions that a "gas tax holiday" will help them pay their fuel bills this summer.
Anyone with a high school level education in economics will tell you a gas tax holiday will actually have the effect of raising gasoline prices. The consumer will simply never see a dime and the oil companies will make even higher profits. Not to mention the fact that it might put as many as 300.000 people out of work when the country is reeling from job losses or drive our debt even higher.

It is simply impossible to even suggest that such a measure could be introduced much less pass through congress before the end of the summer given nobody but McCain and Clinton support it in congress.

We are witnessing an epic and historic clash of old and new politics, one rooted in pander and deception of the past and one with the promise of truth and transparency.

My vote is for Senator Obama

Dear Fellow Americans,
Our Great-grand Nation, the United States of America
is and will face very critical "Challenges" in coming,
months, years, and decades. It is very essential that
we pick out next President on following criteria.
1. A candidate with "Vision and Statesmanship".
2. A candidate with " Stable Character and Morality" .
3. A candidate with "Presidential Temperament" and
"sound Judgment".
4. A candidate with "little Washington exposure" and
"connectedness with New voters".
5. A candidate who "Inspires us up" rather than
us down".
In my professional opinion there is only one candidate
left, who bears all the above qualities aand that is
Honorable Senator Obama.
As an independent registered voter since 1974. I voted
for Carter, voted for Reagan, voted for First Bush,
and second Bush in 2000. In the process last interest
and stopped voting.
This time we can not afford to stay on side lines and
let Washington stay the same.
We can not afford our Greatgreat Nation to become less
than what we are and can be.
We need to send clear and candid message to the world
and some 24 hour partisan hateful media. These media
outlets are trying to deprive, dupe, and derail us
from getting it right this time.
They are trying there best to deny us better rather
than bitter future.{ Our Greatgrand Nations people
persistently and constantly subjected to Psychological
terrorism" thru these hatful partisan media outlets.
We Americans are not going to allow them
psychologically terrorized us and silence the masses.
I am sure that we will get it right this
time and elect Senator Obama our next President. let
us not get dragged down into racism and sexism.
Let us remember that our Greatgrand is constituted of
family, fellowships, friends, faith, funds, fun,
future with fairness and freedom and without fear or
We can not afford to lose any of above. Let us stand
up, be counted, save, build our Greatgrand Nation for
centuries to come.
God Bless our Great grandNation, its diverse people.
Our future needs stability, security, safety,
sustained progress and restoration of our due status
in this perilous Global World at all levels.

Hillary has too many negatives to even list here and her ties to terrorists, lobbyists, husband's deals with China, Nafta, Bosnia lies, stupid support of gas tax, using words like "obliterate" when talking about speculation on foreign policy and...and...

Say what you will, experience is not the end all in electing a President. We have had very poor Presidents in the past with alot of so-called experience....including the one in there now. Bill Clinton, actually had about the same number of years experience as does Obama. Kennedy didn't have alot either. It's a bad argument.

We need Obama. Hillary is too devisive.

The DNC can keep trying to FORCE Obama on voters---but it is NOT going to work!!!

OVER 38% of Dems and 38% of Independents have said that they will NOT vote for Obama if he becomes the nominee (these percentages were from one month ago, I am sure that they have increased SIGNIFICANTLY since then).

Therefore, this means----If Obama becomes the nominee, McCain is going to win the White House.

The majority of citizens are VERY patriotic in regard to our country and the men/women who have fought and died to protect this country. There is NO WAY that the MAJORITY in this country are going to support putting the anti-American, racist, corrupt, lying, closet Muslim Hussein Obama into our White House!!!!

Obama's associations with people like Farrakhan, Reverand Wright, Rezko, William Ayers, Bernice (or is her name Bernadine???) Dorhn, etc. makes it clear----he wants to get into our White House and destroy our country from within!!!!

As a journalist, I am always moved when a newspaper takes a stand.
It can cost them sales , and they can take heat, and so this does not happen all that frequently. Today, I have seen well-written, thoughtful articles that STATE FACTS, and legitmize the superiority of Obama as candidate.
The Chicago Tribune and Charlotte Observer both back Obama, and articulately, and CLEARLY state why.
Thank you, Tribune, thank you Observer, for good old fashioned journalism that takes a perspective and informs.

Subject: Clinton Conflicts of Interest are many , it would seem that An Agenda is more for Personal benefit than Public benefit

Subject: who needs a Pardon on day one ........Obama is getting bashed over an association issue , which he has denounced , while this Clinton & Company Conflict goes under the radar , and I would say that this doesn't pass the smell test , given the record of the Clintons
