Comments on: After attacks, McCain crowd happy not to hear about Obama http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/08/11/after-attacks-mccain-crowd-happy-not-to-hear-about-obama/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: J.C. http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/08/11/after-attacks-mccain-crowd-happy-not-to-hear-about-obama/comment-page-1/#comment-368993 Wed, 13 Aug 2008 05:42:48 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2008/08/11/after-attacks-mccain-crowd-happy-not-to-hear-about-obama/#comment-368993 To Stephen…There is nothing wrong with being a person of faith and giving others the chance to understand your faith (so they can independently think for themselves).

I think then maybe most republicans are starting to see that maybe some of the christian right isn’t right on the issues.

For example… Gay marriage… to band gay marriage would be unconstitutional…just like telling someone they cannot enter a bi-racial marriage 45 years ago was unconstitutional.

All what the christian right wants to do is impose their believes on everyone else and that is not right.

As for John McCain being an “adulterer”, doesn’t your religion preach forgiveness for one’s sins? Everyone makes mistakes, one of yours is hypocrisy.

As for George Bush, he was a huge disaster… i do believe John McCain would be slightly better but not not good enough to lead the United States of America.

My Vote is with Barack Hussain Obama.

Didn’t we tell them when we elected President Bush that we were tired of immoral men like Clinton — that we wanted the president to be someone our children could look up to as a role model? What, didn’t we vote LOUDLY enough?!

We Christians have been used up and spit out by the Republican Party. They run candidates who keep on promising to end abortion, illegalize gay marriage and do all the other things that Christians want for America, and they haven’t done a thing. Then they want us to vote for them again, because “this time they’re really going to do it!”

Well, I say that Jesus sent us out as sheep among wolves, and it’s time for us to recognize the wolves that have been pretending to share our values while nominating the adulterer McCain and then having the guts to ask Christians to vote for him.

People are voting for Obama because this country can’t stand another 4 years of the same old catastrophic policies we’ve just had from the most disasterous administration in living memory. McCain offers nothing better, insisting on the same ‘plan’ (lol) that has bankrupted what used to be the richest and most successful nation on earth. We want hope and new direction, not more failure and deeper depression. Obama is the best chance we’ve had for years, but to be honest I’d vote for Homer Simpson’s dog before I’d vote for another Republican.

I guess they hit a little too close to home. The ivory tower is coming down and we see that it is no Messiah underneath, it’s simply Jimmy Carter and his tired old politics (better yet it is Mike Dukakis). Keep crying about the ads, you guys can’t take it because they speak the truth and the truth is something that a cult member is afraid of.

Cleverly defined and backed up with the longest streams of dribble and empty propoganda in the history of the English language.

The only issue he was able to get traction with was his off shore drilling stance which is popular with voters even though it would take ten years to actually get the oil and would have little to no effect on its market price. This is a man with no vision, as eveidenced by his droning teleprompter speeches in which he butchers the names of foriegn leaders, moves the borders of countries on global maps, and confuses the various factions in the Iraq conflict. This foriegn policy “expert” is nothing more than a warhalk sending the ame old tired dogs out to hunt. FEAR. Yawn Yawn. Its bedtime for old man, out of touch McCain.

Let’s keep to the issues and talk about what he plans to DO to solve the awful state of affairs that Bush-Cheney have put this great nation into both in foreign and domestic. The last 8 years have been a disaster for this country and the world – time to make a change and get on a better path.

As part of the obam-i-nation, the democrats have taken the low stance of posting all kinds of b.s. scripts like the above post all over the internet. No Republican in his right mind would vote for a communist elitist anti-fuel tax monger like obama.

At last the old 72 years mccain is learning on how to market his Bush -Cheney Ideas instead of talking about Obama.

At the end of the day,Republicans like me will VOTE FOR OBAMA who seems to be sharp, active,eloquent and stands a chance of improving our image abroad.Am proud to be American and i cant stand the current state of detest for americans.
Obama understands the ECONOMY Mccain Does NOT.

OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT.
