In 2004, she promised to unite our nation. All they have done is bash our President (and our troops) and further divide us. NOW THEY ARE FORCING HILLARY TO SUPPORT THEIR “GOLDEN BOY”.

WE NEED TO REPLACE ALL DO-NOTHING DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS! WE NEED TERM LIMITS!

Biden was right — we do not need a president in training!

In the Primary debates, Biden himself said Obama was not prepared to be President and that it wasn’t a position to “test drive”.

Therefore, Obama already knew how his own colleagues felt about his inexperience. If Obama wins, he will be the puppet and Biden the puppeteer.

The only difference is that Biden doesn’t know when to shut his mouth or turn on his filter!

Biden does not change the nature of the race. At the end of the day, we will vote for a president — not a vice president!

WE NEED AN EXPERIENCED, QUALIFIED “PRESIDENT” — JOHN McCAIN IN 2008!

Don’t try to critically think and understand what someone is saying just try to lie, manipulate, fallaciously attack with spite and snide behavior and implications and racial discriminating insults and TRY and divide to get what you want. I can definitely see you voting for manipulative and racially discriminating Obama.

The word “black” is in quotation marks when referring to skin color because first of all a statement of referring to someone by summing up their humanity by skin color is wrong, when describing someone’s features it’s fine sure but to sum people up by skin color is fallacious. It is also fallacious and a misnomer to describe people’s skin color as black or white as there really are no large demographics of white skin colored people or black skin colored people in America yet you imply you want to call all darker skin colored people “black”? Look at an accurate color chart and then go around town and look for “black” people. Brown, sure. Yellow tinged, maybe. Not many “black”. Yet you want to describe all the darker skin colors of people’s skin color as “black.” “Black” more commonly refers to a subculture and mind set of behavior in America not a universal skin color. Maybe you can remember about a year ago we had some people of darker skin color going on to national television and saying Obama wasn’t “black” or wasn’t “black enough” for them to vote for him.

Not to mention that in the realm of defining a person and their humanity and people who, this may surprise you, are real people, and which, this may surprise you too, voters are real people, their behavior and character is what should be of paramount importance – not skin color statistics. So when I quoted CNN, I used quotation marks. They weren’t my words and I don’t call people “black” or “white” when seriously describing a persons skin color and definitely not when describing a person’s or group of people’s character and behavior – they aren’t accurate words. And when you thought the word “black” above wasn’t in a quotations, it was in the quotation of the entire statement that was quoted which is describing the behavior that you displayed by a person who wouldn’t quote it.

People who want to call themselves “black” or “white” when they are actually closer to brown and tan can call themselves that if they choose. From my visual experience, most people who happen to be of lighter skin color do not have skin the color of white and most people who happen to be of darker skin color do not have skin the color of black. And note, yes us reason pursuing people have to take the burden of communication and justice and be extra thorough because your behavior refuses to do so, to address your manipulations before you have a chance to bring em out again, black is not in quotations marks in the previous sentence because I am not quoting anyone and I am not using the color as sole word to refer to and sum up a real person or to refer to and sum up a group of people, I am not referring to people as skin color I am actually referring to the color black which needs no quotes.

You can also get an accurate color chart and go around town and look for white colored people. You won’t find many. Also, if I am giving a description of someone’s skin color I do it in a more accurate way than just describing all darker skin colored people “black” and all lighter skin colored people “white”. That is reality. They all aren’t black or white – but seems like that doesn’t divide people enough for you. Open your eyes and stop racially discriminating, treat people with respect no matter what skin color they are and start pursuing reason.

Forget, disremember, cast aside vanity and hurt feelings — and most of all — the labels of “democrat” and republican.”

OBAMA “HOPES” WE WON’T NOTICE HOW OFTEN HE “CHANGES” HIS MIND!

WHY WAS OBAMA SO INTERESTED IN HOW MANY HOMES McCAIN OWNS?

OBAMA AND McCAIN ARE BOTH MULTI-MILLIONNAIRES! WHO CARES!

IS OBAMA WORRIED THAT McCAIN MAY HAVE HOMES IN ALL OF OBAMA’S 57 STATES? IS OBAMA JUST STUPID OR WHAT?

THEY BOTH HAVE EXPERIENCED “THE AMERICAN DREAM”. McCAIN IS ALSO AN INVESTOR. PORTFOLIOS CHANGE DAILY. APPARENTLY OBAMA HAS NO BUSINESS SENSE.

OBAMA KEEPS SCREWING UP — WE DON’T NEED AN EXPERIENCED “VICE PRESIDENT”.

WE NEED AN EXPERIENCED, QUALIFIED “PRESIDENT” — JOHN McCAIN IN 2008!

Amazingly funny, and accurate: …http://time-blog.com/real_clear_politic s/2008/08/obama_ad_mccain_dont_know_much .html

Pass it on!

A new Obama ad uses the classic Sam Cooke song “Wonderful World” (with altered lyrics) to show that McCain doesn’t “know much” about the economy and would continue the policies of the Bush administration. The closing line: “Do we really want four more years of the same tune?” The ad begins airing today on national cable in battleground states.

Just once, I’d like to hear from him that he believes he needs US. I’d like him to look us in the eye and say, “You know what? I’m understand your disappointment that your candicate didn’t win. But, here’s how my platform is similiar to hers. Here’s why I believe that we can be partners in creating the world we both want. I’m asking YOU to support me, because I need you.” When did that happen? He’s always so busy preaching to the choir: all of his speeches are designed to be heard by people who already support him. Let’s have him try to earn the votes of Clinton and McCain supporters. That I could respect. How about a little humility on his part that he might actually need our assistance to win this election? And believe me when I say that I’ve been a died in the wool liberal Democrat all my life and that a vote for McCain makes me sick. For once in my life, I wanted to vote FOR a candidate instaed of against one. But, it’s not going to happen in this election.

Both parties bickering about what the other has done while we the American people are like a tennis net between them. We have been hearing about health insurance for 30 years. How about this. How about we hear about what the solutions are to the problems we face. Maybe then we could vote for the right person.

That would be perfect. All Joe would have to do on the stump is say “McCain = Noun, Verb, POW” and “Rudy = Noun, Verb, 9/11″.

And the ads about Rudy? Wow, sorry but I lived in NYC during the Rudy years. Rudy has a pro-gay, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage record, and he has no foreign policy experience. He’s so deeply connected to fortune 500 interests and lobbyists that it would make McCain look like another GW patsy. He wasnt’ even a good mayor. It could easily be argued that the only reason the streets of NYC were cleaned up during his years as Mayor is because Joe Biden brought Republicans and Democrats together to pass the 1994 crime bill, putting 100,000 cops on the streets and starting an eight-year drop in crime across the country. Rudy just rode the coattails on that one, some would say.

And lastly, just think about the pairing: two adulterers on one ticket?

What a romp that would be. I’d sure like to see it. Like watching a plane crash, train wreck and Death Race all at the same time.

You should only vote for McCain if you truly believe that he is the right man for the job and you agree with his policies.

I certainly don’t agree with his policies so there is no way that he is going to get my vote, no matter how many ridiculous commercials they come up with.

Don’t throw your vote away just because you’re upset. We wait to vote until we are 18 because we are supposed to be mature adults making rational decisions, not throwing hissy fits.
