What do you think of Barack Obama?

what do you think about obama the guy thats trying to run for president?

Answer #1

Obama today encouraged his followers to go up to non-believers and “Get in their face.” !! Meanwhile, Joe Biden says it’s patriotic to pay higher taxes - nice, huh ?

Answer #2

okay here we go… just to set the record straight. obama’s father died 24 years ago. obama had only one meeting with his father when he was 11 years old. obama’s step-father died 20 years ago. his step-father worked for a WESTERN oil company (one of ours). so exactly which father has POLITICAL ties in the middle east. they are both dead. on to the next rumor… vp cheney swore obama in and vp cheney has attested to the fact that a BIBLE was used for the ceremony. yes there was a senator that was sworn in on the koran, but that senator was female and used THOMAS JEFFERSON’s personal koran, borrowed from the library for this. now, vp cheney is a staunch republican. there is nothing that he would like better than to be able to undermine a democrat and yet he even defended obama against this rumor. as far as not saying the pledge. there is one photograph of this, and there are 20 (that I found by a simple google) of him leading the pledge in the senate and in various settings. I have not stated if I am for or against obama. I have tried to shed some light for those of you who, although intelligent, are using incorrect rumors to support their views. an argument, based on fact, is ALWAYS more convincing. AND I MUST POINT OUT… IF OBAMA WERE WHITE AND NAMED BOB, WOULD WE EVEN BE HAVING THIS CONVERSATION.

Answer #3

BRING ON OBAMA he is a briliant polition, in my opinion if he was white america would love him. and he’s not muslim, thats a roumour that has got out of hand, he’s christian look it up. an even if he was muslim it dont stop him from being the better candidate anyone can see that!

Answer #4

you would probably go about a better life and have more opprotunities and you might even learn how to spell who knows and use grammar. But the bottom line is Obama does not make for a good presidential candidate. I mean he calls for all these peaceful negotiations and cooperation between countries but is this really plausible. And what happens if things don’t work out, he’s very reluctant to enforce anything militarily and sometimes that is exactly what is needed. I’m not saying the war in Iraq has been perfect but the war in Afghanistan and Iraq was needed we just went about it in the wrong way. And Obama does not have a sound plan for removing troops either. He’s not a god because he’s black or any other race or ethnicity and he’s not the worst candidate either. But he certainly should not be president.

Answer #5

Obama, in a 1996 candidate survey, revealed his 2nd Amendment answer: asked if he supports legislation to, “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.” His one-word answer—uncommonly direct and lacking the flowery eloquence we’ve come to expect from him—was “Yes.”

Answer #6

I really don’t think he is fit for the job its nothing against his race or anything else its just that I can’t stand voting for someone who is for abortions and stopping the war(yea war is bad but we are doing it for a reason) I mean if we didnt have war and military our country would be bad so yea I’m pretty much Republican

Answer #7

We have one candidate that would rather lose a campaign rather than a war - and one who would lose a war, rather than a campaign.

Answer #8

I want him to win! Its funny how people say that Obama is not experieced when he chose an experienced man as his vice and McCain chose Palin who is only been in the government for a few years. Obama has more sense to me.

Answer #9

this is politics in the love and relationships place =o umm who cares? I don’t like any of them

Answer #10

Obama is a person just like you and me. He is smarter than me. He knows more stuff than I am. And I just want to say to those of you are disagree with him or do not like him. Either you like him or not … he is on the way to the white house.

Answer #11

oops…one more thing… as far as the statement made that obama’s father has political ties over there. THIS country has political ties over there. have you ever asked yourself why we invaded iraq when NOT ONE terrorist was from there? this is supposed to be a war based on fighting the terrorists. if that were the case, we would be fighting in saudi arabia.

Answer #12

I never stated that I thought he was a good or even the best candidate. I just knew that you were incorrect about his religious affiliation, his refusal to say the pledge and his swearing in on the koran. you seem as if you are an intelligent person and I didn’t want you to seem less than that. I would like to see a democrat in office but, at this point, am not sure for whom I will vote. also, I think almost every candidate seeking the nomination lacks the experience for this office, except mccain or clinton. they have both been in the “thick” of things.

Answer #13

quit spreading rumors… gossip is not christian behavior…

A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. –Proverbs 11:13

The words of a gossip are like dainty morsels: they go down into a person’s innermost parts. –Proverbs 18:8

For I am afraid that by any means, when I come, I might find you not the way I want to, and that I might be found by you as you don’t desire; that by any means there would be strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, factions, slander, whisperings, proud thoughts, riots 2 Corinthians 12:20

“Thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” (Exodus 20). When you repeat something you heard from someone else, or share a story where you’re not 100% certain the facts are correct, or even share information about another person that will only bring them harm and not good, you are bearing false witness against them. Since the second greatest commandment is “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you would be breaking that one as well by gossiping. Would you gossip about yourself to others? If not, then why commit that act against your neighbor?

Answer #14

Amblessed, some of the things you post are truly disgusting, and should be beneath you.

“If Barack Obama would apply for a job with the FBI or with the Secret Service, he would be disqualified because of his past association with William Ayers, a known terrorist.”

Well then so would Republican Walter Annenberg, who funded the program that Obama and Ayers served on the board of together. As well as Republican Arnold Weber, who had served in the Nixon White House.

“What do Osama and Obama have in common ? - both have friends who bombed the Pentagon.”

A truly disgusting comment. You my friend are no real christian if you can so easily spread lies like these.

And that video is pretty powerful. Especially the part where he talks about his kids and wife. The one-time model wife disfigured in an acciden that he eventually leaves to marry a beauty queen 20 years his younger.

Answer #15

WOW!! Are you serious?? You people are ridiculous. Do any of you know what is actually at stake in this election? Have you been paying attention? If any of you knew John McSame’s policies and what he stands for, I guarantee you would have a different view. I urge anyone who is unsure about who to vote for, DO YOUR RESEARCH. Get the facts. Do not listen to hear say. Truth is there are still many racists people who will not vote for Obama just because he is HALF BLACK, and as hard as it is for me to accept it, I do. But at the same time, if you care about domestic issues like affordable healthcare, affordable education, more and better paying jobs, and other things that affect everyday people then please do your research and find out what both candidates positions are on these issues and I promise you the choice will be clear. There are a lot of things that need to be addressed and fixed in this country and it will take a democrat to do it. The republicans only care about big business. The Democrats are for the american people. Please know your history before you speak ignorance. Did you know that John McSame is against Roe v Wade? Do your research. Did you know that John McSame doesn’t know anything about the economy? Do your research. Did you know that John McSame is against WOMEN RIGHTS? Do your research. Did you know that John McSame wants to continue Bush’s tax cuts for the rich? Do your research. Did you know that John McSame wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years? OK you probably knew that already. Did you know that John McSame wants to get rid of affirmative action? DO YOUR RESEARCH. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! We actually have a chance to elect a president that is actually for the people. I wouldn’t care if he was green and orange with purple polk a dots on his forehead, HE IS FOR THE PEOPLE!!! Obama is a breath of fresh air and represents change that is desperately needed in Washington. If you do know know Obama and what he represents, I urge you to DO YOUR RESEARCH. Review his voting record in the senate—He is for the people—YouTube some of his speeches—He is for the people–Read his books. Just get to know him and you will know he is what we need. Get rid of the special interests in Washington and elect Barack Obama for President.


  1. He will ONLY raise taxes for the rich, people making over $250,000 a year which is about 1% of the population.

  2. He will eliminate taxes for senior citizens making $50,000 a year or less.

  3. He will take those same tax cuts that Bush gives to the rich and give them to people who really need them, people making $150,000 a year or less.

  4. Universal Healthcare for all Americans.

  5. He will bring our troops home and use the $10 billion a month that we have been spending in Iraq on America’s needs.

  6. He does not take money from federal lobbyists so there will be no one telling him what to do. He will be working for the american people.

Basically, everything that is broken, Obama will fix. He is not a magician nor will it be easy but everything that needs to be done could have already been done, we’ve just never had anybody to stand up for us and special interests have been controlling Washington. Just look around, it’s pretty obvious. Bush has been the worst president in American History. And now, it will take the smartest, most intellectual president that we have ever had to clean up after his mess. Thank You God for sending us Barack Obama. The world will be a much better place because of it. Trust. You’ll See. And oh yea…before you make up your mind who to vote for, DO YOUR RESEARCH. He is not as bad as conservatives claim him to be. They are just frustrated that they cant find any dirt on him, not to mention the wonderful pictures from overseas. THEY ARE HATERS!! DONT BE A HATER!!! DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! Peace..Love..Happineess…YES WE CAN!!!

Answer #16

I find one of the MOST troubling things about Barack Obama and the reason why I and no one I know that have heard these comments would vote for him, to be this:

Barack Obama in a Youtube video entitled, “Obama-Caucus4Priorities”, saidamong other anti-military comments, “I will slow our development of future combat systems.”

This, in and of itself is extremely worrying and evidence that he is NOT the person the United States needs its leader.

For, in a perfect world where ALL of the world’s countries were committed to peace this would be a perfectly noble goal. However, unfortunately, this is NOT a perfect world; it is a very dangerous one. China, Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Venezuela… all of these countries and others, directly or indirectly threaten America and it allies on a regular basis. Unless one is prepared as a country to allow those states to operate entirely unchecked in the world, regardless of their actions and provocations and their impact on America and it’s allies, then there MAY be a day when we have to fight one or more of them.

As distasteful and horrible as war is, I would argue that SOMETIMES it can serve the greater good. We can look to the past to see that argument in action: Should America and their allies have stood by and allowed Germany to take control of Europe during WWI and WWII? Should the US have stood by and allowed the communists of North Korea to subjugate and destroy the people and the wonderfully rich culture on the Korean peninsula? We may have to consider this in the future as well if China were to finally decide to use military force to drive Taiwan to join with the communist mainland.

Further, while it may be counter intuitive, developing future and advanced combat weapons systems can actually save the lives of both Americans and our enemies. Without the development of guided munitions, the battles in Iraq or any future war will have been MUCH more hazardous for non-combatants. As it stands now, US soldiers can call in an air strike on a specific house and with the use of laser or GPS guided munitions, can put that air strike directly on the house, minimizing the danger to the houses and families next door. Had these munitions not been developed the US armed services would be forced to use unguided munitions that are exponentially more inaccurate and would be much more likely to kill non-combatants. If an enemy were to invade one of our allies, which weapon system would you rather have to route out and destroy that enemy in the defense of the people?

Even the development of precision guided nuclear ICBMs, one of the most devastating and terrible weapons EVER developed, has had a positive effect on the world. During the height of the cold war, America’s conventional and nuclear forces were far outnumbered by the Soviet Union. The development of highly advanced, precision guided warheads allowed the US to change their nuclear war doctrine to the targeting of military forces, installations and infrastructure instead of mass populations centers (cities) as they had with less accurate nuclear weapons. One should note as well, that even the use of two nuclear weapons against Japan at the end of WWII saved an estimated two million lives that would have in all likely hood died if the US had had to invade the Japanese islands to bring an end to the war.

So you see, despite Barack Obama’s evident belief to the contrary, the development of future combat systems is not inherently bad or evil. Until we live in a perfect world where there are no longer individuals or countries who wish us or others harm, we MUST be prepared to defend ourselves against any aggression and the further development of future combat systems will allow us to do that more efficiently and with less danger to non-combatants. For a man who wishes to be the leader, protector and commander in chief of the American people to be so entirely naive of this is unforgivable.

China alone has been steadily increasing their military spending for over a decade, and boosted it by more than 18 percent in last year. They have the largest standing army in the world and are investing heavily in tactical technology to arm those service members with surprisingly advanced military weapons. It would be foolish for America not to try and keep their technological advantage against a potential foe that outnumbers us so severely.

It is one thing to promote peace and negotiation and to avoid armed conflict at all costs. That is arguably a noble stance. However, It is completely and utterly unconscionable to stop the development of weapons with which to defend ourselves against those aggressors who would refuse to negotiate.

in my opinion: If Barack Obama is either that naive, or simply that anti-military, then he clearly should not be President.

Answer #17

But it all has to do with money in the end right? If the likes of Saddam are out of power then they can’t hike up the price of oil to the rest of the world.So as long as the people in power don’t raise the price of oil then the rest of the world likes them. Thats just the way it looks to me. The world will be a different place when oil reserves are gone.

This is a great debate isn’t it?

Answer #18

lol, grifilcan did you bother to look at amblesseds questions? go to his question about obama being a false prohet and perhaps you’ll see the relevance…

Answer #19

4/29/08: FINALLY, Barak ‘I can no more disown Rev. Wright than the black community’ Obama, has had a sudden change - people I know came to that very same conclusion (Wright is wrong) a very long time ago - just 48 hrs ago he was defending Rev. Wright - today the sudden change - some chickens have apparently come home to Roost !

Answer #20

In light of his decision to vote to withhold medical treatment even in the baby is totally outside the body, struggling to survive, Obama’s position is clear: A woman who chooses an abortion is entitled to a dead child no matter what. That is an abortion extremist - how can a human being do that to another human being ?

Answer #21

Sounds great but that 3am urgent-instant decision phone call comes in to the White House, not the Naval Observatory where the experience resides.

Answer #22

9/5/08: Obama finally agreed today that the surge was a success - Harry Reid has yet to do so.

Answer #23
Answer #24

Interesting: “Martin Luther King said, ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content their character.’ We are ignoring Obama’s character (and Jeremiah Wright’s and Tony Rezko’s) and we’re only talking about Obama’s color. So I don’t know what kind of progress has actually happened.”

Answer #25

grifilcan- I was speaking to amblessed. He said that he had heard a rumor…

Answer #26

well if you don’t want others to read and respond then maybe you should not publicly post and you should funmail him. other people are going to respond to you. As a decently religious person I find it ridiculous that you would even try to relate religion and the gospel to todays politics that’s not even remotely possible.

Answer #27

Amoeba! The Gospel has no place in politics haha. I’m not even sure our nations laws have a place in politics anymore in some cases. Congress is not a chorus and the white house is not a st. peters for the pope. If it was I’m sure we’d have even bigger issues on our hands. As far as Mr. Obama goes our nation is in one of the worst situations picking the best of the worst the one that will create the least amount of negative and well that is McCain. I mean who states that they will be our president for the next ten years. Last time I checked… I mean it may not still stand… but they were only allowed 8 max…right?? My other opinions are posted above.

Answer #28

Last Sunday at the church Obama is a member - remarks made about Hillary:

“She just always thought that, ‘This is mine. I’m Bill’s wife. I’m white.’ … And then, out of nowhere, came ‘Hey, I’m Barack Obama.” And she said, ‘Oh damn, where did you come from? I’m white. I’m entitled. There’s a black man stealing my show,’“ Pfleger said at Trinity United Church of Christ.

He then went on to parody Clinton, sobbing and wiping his face with a handkerchief.

”She wasn’t the only one crying,“ he said. ”There was a whole lot of white people crying.“

Answer #29

I am shocked by the number of people who incorrectly think that obama does not say the pledge (he regularly leads the pledge when in the senate) and that he took his oath of office with his hand on the koran. photographs CLEARLY show it to be the bible. lemmings to the sea. please don’t believe the media hype about any candidate. whether they are republican or democrat.

Answer #30

When Obama and his wife earned between $200,000 and $300,000 annually from 2000 through 2004, they donated less than 1 percent to charity. As a result of the sales from Obama’s two books, he and Michelle earned as much as $4 million per year the past couple of years. Then the Obamas’ charitable contributions went up to 5 percent…at least that’s 100% more aid than he sent his half-brother in Africa.

Answer #31

In reference to the conflict in Georgia, it appears Obama is calling for the ‘invader’ and the ‘invaded’ to show restraint - He said: “I strongly condemn the outbreak of violence in Georgia, and urge an immediate end to armed conflict. Now is the time for Georgia and Russia to show restraint, and to avoid an escalation to full scale war. Georgia’s territorial integrity must be respected. All sides should enter into direct talks on behalf of stability in Georgia, and the United States, the United Nations Security Council, and the international community should fully support a peaceful resolution to this crisis.”

Answer #32

Researched Fact: On March 13, 2003, Illinois state legislator Barack Obama voted against the Illinois Born Alive Act which provides that infants who survive an abortion and are born alive should receive necessary medical care and treatment. Barack Obama voted to let babies die who were born alive! Barack Obama took a more extreme pro-abortion stand than even pro-abortion champions NARAL, who stayed neutral on the counterpart federal legislation which barred abortions on babies born alive - maybe he has the character you admire, I don’t !

Answer #33

“At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?” Most people have a ready answer to this question. A “pro-life” supporter will generally point to conception, while a “pro-choice” proponent will often point to birth. There are a variety of opinions, but the average person does have an opinion. Not Barack Obama. He wouldn’t answer this most basic question about human rights. He refused to answer the question of what constitutes a human being worthy of rights and protections.

Answer #34

Americans are chauvinist, and racists. Thats what my mum said. so mccain will win, but I say Barack Obama KiCKASS!

Answer #35

I say we are f*cking screwed no matter who the president is. I dont think obama should be president just Because hes black. And I dont think hilary clinton Should be president either.Because I sure as hell bet you people will try to murder obama. And I dont think hilary has what it takes none of them do. so I think im going to be moving to like canada soon. hah. I think were pretty much screwed on this!

Answer #36

I’m not too worried about Obama. What I am worried about is the future of America given the ignorance and intolerance of many of the posts here. Obama is not a Muslim, he does pledge allegiance to the flag, and he was sworn into office using a Bible.

Answer #37

good for you I never did get the whole tention between people who support different partys. you undecided on the election

Answer #38

I’m not talkin about religion he has political ties over there POLITICAL!!! nothing to do with religion I do not care if a man is jewish. hindu, buddist I care if he has political ties to them.

Answer #39

he doesn’t say the pledge… that should show that he doesn’t respect america and is going to shoot it into the ground. plus I think he is using the church of christ thing to cover up that he was part of the muslim religion at one point in time. plus he didn’t even get into goverment from putting his hand on the bible but the quran.

Answer #40

I personally love the contradiction amblessed makes first you say we are just judging obama by the color of his skin and then you make a post about how much more experience mccain has do you have a position or are you just going back and forth. I think there are a lot of people who are judging obama by his skin but there are people out there who are judging him by his character and whether or not he is capable of doing this job well. He’s not experienced enough maybe next election. The democrats should not have even tried this year if their best candidates were hilary clinton and barack obama to me that’s kind of a scary thought when considering this contries position and the options we have for people to lead it. After this election I think things are going to get worse before they get better.

Answer #41

After watching the Obama speech today, I have some Random thoughts:

  • He stated previously that he was not present at any of these inflammatory sermons, yet today said ‘I was’.

  • Previously stated he wasn’t aware Rev Wright was ‘controversial’, yet months ago the reason he gave for canceling Rev Wright to give the prayer at his entering the race announcement was ‘some of his sermons are kind of rough’.

  • His wife is middle-aged, yet she states ‘now is the first time I have been proud of America in my lifetime’ (not exact words but close).

  • it is common for people to judge people by ‘the friends they keep’

  • I find many of Rev Wright’s views frightening for many reasons.

  • it seemed to me he was saying in the overall tone of the message - whites are racist / African-Americans are not.

  • he seemed to equate what Rev Wright said with what Geraldine Farraro said.

  • he remembered what his Grandmother’s views were from childhood, yet not more recent views of Rev Wright.

  • seems to me if you genuinely believe for 20 years he did not notice / figure out what was coming from that pulpit - how can one come to the conclusion as President he would have the ability and awareness to recognize bad judgement, execute due diligence, and be able to accutely discern matters - be an effective Leader of the Country.

  • He is selling himself as very different from Rev Wright, he refuses to totally separate himself.

Again, these are just Random thoughts I had which I think merits ‘food for thought’.

Answer #42

Interesting point I read:

In his speech on race, Obama sought to evoke sympathy for Wright. He described a “lack of economic opportunity among black men, and the shame and frustration that came from not being able to provide for one’s family…”

Obama said this was “the reality in which Rev. Wright and other African-Americans of his generation grew up. They came of age in the late fifties and early sixties, a time when segregation was still the law of the land and opportunity was systematically constricted…Even for those blacks who did make it, questions of race, and racism, continue to define their worldview in fundamental ways. For the men and women of Rev. Wright’s generation, the memories of humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away; nor has the anger and the bitterness of those years.”

In retirement, Wright will continue a life of privilege that dates back to Central High. As a retirement gift, Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ is building him a million-dollar home abutting Odyssey Country Club and Golf Course in the nearly all-white Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. The home sits on land the pastor purchased in 2004 for $345,000. In December 2006, Wright sold the land to his church, which took out a $1.6 million mortgage on the property. In April 2007, the church applied for a building permit for the brick and stone structure.

Wright’s new home has 10,340 square feet of space, about four times the size of a typical suburban house. It includes four bedrooms, an elevator, an exercise room, and a four-car garage.

Rather than being a victim of oppression of blacks, as Obama has claimed, Wright is a symbol of the American dream !

Answer #43

“You know setting aside the smoke and mirrors tax and health care plan Senator Obama is running on, Tell me jimal you think William Ayers is a wonderful person and should the President of the United States associate himself with a terrorist of the 70s who killed innocent Americans, men women and children?”

First off, I never said anything for or against Ayres. I said he no association with Obama, other than serving on a board together. And I must have missed somehting. Can you please show me the links to the stories that Ayres killed men women and children. None of the bombing he did resulted in any injuries.

“Should our President attend a church for 20 years with a pastor who spews bigotry and Anti-American sentiment. No sir, he would not qualify to be his own body guard, and I certainly don’t think he is qualified to be the President of such a racially, and religious diverse nation as the United States. Bigotry doesn’t belong anywhere and it sure as hell doesn’t belong in the POTUS.”

Were you there for the entire 20 years? You know for a fact what Obama heard every time he was in that church?

These are noting but baseless accusations coming from a misinformed syncophant.

Answer #44

This does not inspire me about this candidate - very telling:

Fact: Obama has the first Presidential campaign plane in History to have ALL American flags removed !

When presidential candidates answer questions from children about why they want the job, most will give an answer that uplifts the child and the candidate. Not Barack Obama. At a campaign stop in Elkhart, Indiana, a seven-year-old girl asked the Democrat why he wants to be President — and he told her that America has gone downhill: “America is …, uh, is no longer, uh … what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, I don’t want that future for my children.”

Michelle Obama sounded similar themes earlier in the campaign: “Sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions. It makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America.”

“Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country.”

Everyone feels that we can improve ourselves, but we don’t usually cast it in terms of the country no longer being what it once was.

Answer #45

now THAT is a VALID argument. something that I can think about and research. your lack of support for him based on your feeling that he has no political experience is something that is true. your lack of support for him based on falsehoods that you heard was not a valid argument and too easy to poke holes in. he is the least politically astute candidate that has ever been a true possibility to receive the nomination. and he does receive a lot of press because of his age and race. just as clinton receives it based on the fact that she is a woman. and romney receives it based on the fact that he is mormon. I have the utmost respect for you and your views. I looked at your bio, you are on the way to becoming a well educated young woman. I just thought that it was a pity for you to appear to be less than you are just by repeating a bunch of rumors. I must quote you now from one of you answers to the question “ who’s going to win the election in 2008” you stated “Not hilary please, and not a muslim/black man please.” anytime you refer to someone in that way, you appear to be racist. so, if you don’t want people to think of you in that light…

Answer #46

I do not think that these two candidates can be effective in the presidency. That is my view. Personally right now, in a time of war and conflict I do not want a women president running my nation, possibly in the future. Also, I do not want some one with ties to the people with whome we are fighting, and further more has little experience within our governmental structure. I just do not think that either one of them can lead this nation right now. It is your right to disagree with me on it. I don’t find it disconcerting that I think a women president would not get respect because she would not get as much respect as a man would, and you cannot argue against that. We are THE most powerful nation in the world. Other countries w/ women leaders are not nearly as powerful right now. We are the most powerful. I think putting a women at our head is jepordizing the way other nations are going to view us and the respect they are going to give to our nation. As for Obama there is something green about him, and something that I just don’t have confidence in in him as the leader of our nation.

Answer #47

You know setting aside the smoke and mirrors tax and health care plan Senator Obama is running on, Tell me jimal you think William Ayers is a wonderful person and should the President of the United States associate himself with a terrorist of the 70s who killed innocent Americans, men women and children?

Should our President attend a church for 20 years with a pastor who spews bigotry and Anti-American sentiment. No sir, he would not qualify to be his own body guard, and I certainly don’t think he is qualified to be the President of such a racially, and religious diverse nation as the United States. Bigotry doesn’t belong anywhere and it sure as hell doesn’t belong in the POTUS.

And to the postings - Obama didn’t refuse the pledge, he is has professed Christianity. You don’t have to use these, there are so many other reasons he not only is not qualified, he doesn’t deserve to serve as our President.

Answer #48

7/21/08: Middle-east trip fact: Members of the most active West Bank terror organization are set to serve in security forces being deployed to protect Sen. Barack Obama during his trip to the West Bank tomorrow. According to security officials coordinating deployments of forces with the Palestinian Authority for Obama’s Ramallah visit, members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah’s declared military wing, have been called upon by the PA to participate in the protection of Obama, particularly in securing the perimeter during a scheduled meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas. The Brigades is listed as a terror organization by the U.S. State Department. The group took credit along with the Islamic Jihad terror organization for every suicide bombing in Israel between 2005 and 2006 and is responsible for thousands of shootings and rocket firings.

Answer #49

Lst time I checked the question was about obama, who now thinks our problems can be solved by filling up our tires the entire way and can simple stop russia from harassing other nations by simply asking according to his want to be running mate. as for clinton obviously she did not have enough respect from our nation, it’s like she fell off th face of the earth or sumthin. I highly doubt she has enough pull to with the nomination at the convention. And obviously if our nation cant trust her in that position how are other nations suppose to respect her in it? She couldn’t shout listen to me… or wait she could except haha no one did scrath that feminists did.

Answer #50

he shoulcn’t be president. he wouldn’t even say the pledge!!! if the president of our nation won’t say the pledge, he shouldn’t be president.

Answer #51

I like him.

Answer #52

WOah WOAh!! I just found out that obama was 360 pounds! Now he looks soo skinny because he lost 100s of pounds in a year!! …im jjust saying…something lol

Answer #53

amen. and I find it disconcerting that a young woman would think a female president would garner no respect from the rest of the world. this isn’t the 1800’s. women are allowed to vote, and hold jobs and everything.

Answer #54

Great election though - watching the main-stream media coverage literally and figuratively ‘wet their pants’ at the mere mention of his name is amazing ! LOL

Answer #55


Answer #56

I’m neither actrually

Answer #57


Barack Obama played the “me too” game during the Friday debates on September 26 after Senator John McCain mentioned that he was wearing a bracelet with the name of Cpl. Matthew Stanley, a resident of New Hampshire and a soldier that lost his life in Iraq in 2006. Obama said that he too had a bracelet. After fumbling and straining to remember the name, he revealed that his had the name of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek of Merrill, Wisconsin.

Shockingly, however, Madison resident Brian Jopek, the father of Ryan Jopek, the young soldier who tragically lost his life to a roadside bomb in 2006, recently said on a Wisconsin Public Radio show that his family had asked Barack Obama to stop wearing the bracelet with his son’s name on it. Yet Obama continues to do so despite the wishes of the family - wonder why he would go against their wishes…

Answer #58

Haha where’s hilary at. Not even remotely in this running. As much as she wants to be or thinks she can be. No one is really paying attention to her that much anymore. As far as being the most powerful nation… I think we maybe slipping. And I don’t think choosing her would be in our best interest to ummm revitalize ourselves. And I thought this question was about barrack who thinks now our problems can be solved by making sure our tires are completely inflated? ok… ( I think I first mentioned clinton but briefly). And I still don’t think they’d give the same about of respect to a women president of the united states as they would a male. I don’t find it disconcerting at all, half our nation doesn’t respect hilary (well that may over exxagerate) but if we can’t even repsect her (not saying we have to like her or agree with what she’s doing, but just respect her) how do you expect other nations to. And it’s obvious there’s not enough respect and support out there for hilary otherwise she’d still be in this running…

Answer #59

yes I don’t like obama for president whether he be mexican jewish canadian or american or whether his name is jesus christ I don’t think he has the credentials to be president. I never really looked into his background because frankly I don’t care that much for him as a president I know what I’ve heard and that’s about it. yea it’s been misleading ok I still don’t care he’s still not the best candidate for president. I’m not a very intelligent person when it comes to politics this is the first time I’ve ever even attempted to follow an election it’s not one of my major interests, politics that is. I answered this question quite inocently not expecting the amount of responses. I don’t like thos that are insinuating that I’m being prejudice either because like I said I just frankly don’t think obama can lead this nation effectively, I don’t trust him, he’s inexperienced. and like I said he’s getting way to much political attention in comparison to the other candidates, maybe his race and stuff has something to do with that but as for the main reason I don’t like him for president it’s not his race. From what I’ve heard I was under the impression he had SOME kind of tie mainly pertaining to his father to the middle east. I’m still not totally convinced that that is COMPLETELY false, it may have been misleading though to me. I’ll agree that some things I have been wrong on about him(and no president of the united states should ever under any circumstance EVER refuse to say the pledge) but the fact that he’s inexperienced and I don’t think he has the ability to lead this country effectively…he has a way with words o0o good a political person that can talk…never saw that before, bottom line is in my view MY VIEW, however misconstrued or mislead it is Obama is not the best person to do this job.

Answer #60

Obama voting:

Obama voted against the confirmation of John Roberts for the Supreme Court, saying he “far more often used his formidable skills on behalf of the strong in opposition to the weak.” He also cast a vote against Samuel Alito and even voted in favor of a filibuster to stall his confirmation. Obama opposed a bill in 2006 that would have denied citizenship or other legal status to illegal immigrants, and voted last year against a measure that would have allowed police to question people about their immigration status under certain circumstance. He voted in favor of the immigration reform bill sponsored by John McCain and Ted Kennedy that would have allowed many illegal aliens to become legal residents. Last October Obama voted for an act that would have allowed illegal immigrants who become permanent legal residents to qualify for lower in-state tuition rates at state universities. That measure was opposed by Democrats in a number of swing states that could be pivotal in this year’s election, MSNBC observed. The Illinois Senator voted against a 2006 bill to prohibit the transportation of a minor girl across state lines to get an abortion if this would circumvent parental consent. Obama voted against a bill extending the cuts in capital gains and dividends tax rates that Congress enacted in 2003, and against the repeal of the tax on inherited wealth, the estate tax. In June 2006, Obama voted against a bill that would have required President Bush to withdraw most U.S. troops from Iraq by July 1, 2007. But this past September, he joined 27 other Democrats in voting for a bill ordering Bush to begin withdrawing most American forces within 90 days. The bill failed to pass. He is against making English the official language.

Answer #61

Barrack Obama will not be able to handle the presidency. He does not seem like the best candidate.

Answer #62

If Barack Obama would apply for a job with the FBI or with the Secret Service, he would be disqualified because of his past association with William Ayers, a known terrorist.

If he is elected President he would not qualify to be his own body guard!!!

What do Osama and Obama have in common ? - both have friends who bombed the Pentagon.

Answer #63

4/26/08: House Majority Whip James Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in the Congress, says blacks believe Hillary Clinton is staying in the presidential race to drag down Barack Obama so John McCain will win the White House — and she can run again in 2012.

Answer #64

The same people who have gone ballistic when some prominent figure is found to belong to some all-male social club are full of excuses for why Barack Obama remained a member of a racist and anti-American church for 20 years.

Answer #65

Wonder what this means - Obama noted his resignation (from the church) should not be interpreted as a denouncement of the church. “It’s not a church worthy of denouncing,” he said

Answer #66

he should drop out. he doesn’t seem like he could handle it to be honest.

Yeah, well he’s the leading Democratic candidate and according to national polls he could get more of the popular vote than every Republican except John McCain. I think he can handle it…

Answer #67

Bring on Obama…

Muhammad Ali was Muslim too…wasn’t he ?!!! And what an example of a great American he is…”Float like a butterfly…Sting like a bee!”

Answer #68

Answer #69

We need a President that can make a decision on an issue, not one who thinks the protection of an unborn or newly born baby is ‘above my pay grade’ !

Answer #70

Obama says ACORN (caught many times for voter fraud) will help shape his agenda !!


Answer #71

Now Obama, who has spent two years preventing a woman from being president, will spend two months preventing one from becoming vice president.

Answer #72

John McCain had a massive town meeting in my area today and although I’m only hearing it over the radio I must say that I am very impressed with how intelligent this man actually is. The way he is made out to be is completely contradictory to what I’m hearing here and the way he is portraying himself. Several of my coworkers who are also listening are in agreement. I must say Obama is a great speaker when he has a speech laid out and such but McCain is impressing me and he’s speaking off the top of his head. He knows a lot more than I thought and in my mind he is really establishing himself as the best person for the job right now. I’m sure Obama will follow him to the area so I’ll hold my final judgements till then.

Answer #73

It stands to reason, a position as important as POTUS, Experience is essential, not optional - on the job training doesn’t hack it - these factual/undeniable numbers speak for themselves: From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That’s how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.

After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief.

In contrast, John McCain has 26 years in Congress, 22 years of military service including 1,966 days in captivity as a POW in Hanoi.

Answer #74

4/2/08: ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and former President Bill Clinton are making very direct arguments to Democratic superdelegates, starkly insisting Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., cannot win a general election against presumptive Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Sources with direct knowledge of the conversation between Sen. Clinton and Governer Bill Richardson, D-N.M., prior to the Governor’s endorsement of Obama say she told him flatly, “He cannot win, Bill. He cannot win.”

Richardson, who served in President Clinton’s cabinet, disagreed.

Answer #75

Regarding the person who said he can’t handle it… Obama is smart (first black editor of the Harvard Law Review). He is a natural leader (something we haven’t had for the past 7 years) plus he speaks proper English (ditto previous aside). Regarding Obama not having credentials..well I suppose Bush had the proper bona fides but take a look at where our country is right now. I could walk out my front door right now and grab someone off the street that wouldn’t screw things up as bad as President Bush has.

Clinton is qualified too - thing is, so many Republicans hate her that they will come out in droves just to vote against her. A vote for Hillary is practically a vote for McCain. Hillary supporters - I respect you, but why support someone in the primary who can’t win the White House?

Answer #76

The newspaper forgot to keep quiet !! What initially seemed to be a journalistic scoop of dubious moral propriety now seems to be a case of an Israeli paper being played by the Barack Obama campaign. Maariv, the second most popular newspaper in Israel, was roundly criticized for publishing the note Obama left in the Kotel. But now a Maariv spokesperson says that publication of the note was pre-approved for international publication by the Obama campaign.

Answer #77

he doesn’t have enough experience and while he seems to relate to the people very well with words in his addresses after the caucuss’ (not sure of that spelling) his speeches didn’t really indicate and precise plans. and they were extremely similar. I think he’s a good speaker but when it comes down to the nitty gritty of politics I don’t think he is experienced enough to make the best decisions for this nation. why do you think he is a good candidate? don’t take that wrong I’m just curious as to why u think he is?

Answer #78

I agree my decision is still out there right now the front runner in my mind is mccain. I don’t think that other countries will be bale to respect a women yet, even if she is president of one of the powerful nations in the world. even if the us is ready the rest of the world particularly the middle east is not ready for a women. as for obama I would like to see how things pan out for him and how he handles the rest of the election. maybe he can my mind and some other peoples minds who knows. I think in the future he’ll have a better chance.

Answer #79

well, the leaders of the middle east have historically interacted with female leaders. indira gandhi, benazir bhutto, margaret thatcher, mary mcaleese, angela merkel, michelle bachelet, and pratibha patil. to name a few. in order: india, pakistan, england, ireland, germany, chile, and india (again). all powerful nations. I don’t see why you would think the united states would be any different. there has never been a middle eastern leader that has refused to interact with a female leader.

Answer #80

I really don’t agree that the world is not ready for a woman American president. Margret Thatcher was the Prime Minister of Engalnd for years ok so she gave us Irish hell while she was in office but she was still a very competant leader for great Britain. It just depends on wether Clinton can turn around and shout LISTEN TO ME. Plus she’d be the leader of the most powerful superpower in the world so her post really demands attention. Im not sure you’s get what im saying. do you’s?

Answer #81

I agree my decision is still out there right now the front runner in my mind is mccain.

Answer #82

I love him and you all that are simply mimicking what you have heard need to study a bit more, because the world and America are on the brink and need a strong leader. Obama is the best out of the candidates available to us, and I love Hillary (having met her twice) or at least I did before the recent weeks. Regardless we need someone who can rally and lead and evoke change. Many of the world’s leaders want America to nominate him and even dumb old right wing Rush Limbaugh told voters in the last primary to run out and vote for Hillary because he knows that if Obama gets the Dem nod he will be much harder for McCain to beat. You all need not blog until you have done some research!!!

Answer #83


Answer #84

When you say you do not want a President with ties to the people you are fighting, please tell me you are not talking about Obama being a Muslim. The War in Iraq and any Diplomatic battles in the Persian gulf have nothing and I reapeat nothing to do with Religion. It is the 21st century, The Crusades ended centurys ago. IF that isn’t what you meant im sorry but thats what it sounds like

Answer #118

wouldn be nice if hillary made president and she locked all men up in jail an only took them out when we needed work done around the house or sex etc. then throw them back in!!!

Answer #119

I hope he wins and all you ignorant people leave the country. There’s nothing wrong with BEING muslim. The problem is the evil actions that a few individuals who are muslim choose to take.

On an unrelated note, as Barack is not Muslim, Obama stands for change, which America desperately, desperately needs!!!
