So grandma Sarah says she was present when Obama was born - in Kenya- just one more link in the chain of bama deceit.
I guess granny is a 'birther'...

How Did We Get Into This Country-Wide Financial Mess?
Although the Bush Admin tried many times to call attention to a coming problem for several years it was the Barney Frank crew who brought the country down. Housing market collapse was tied 100% to the Wall Street failure. The failure was brought about by Frank and dem. policies forcing banks to make loans to unqualified people under the threat to lenders of "discrimination lawsuits" if they did not make the loans. Also the risks were lowered by Demo-backed safety net garentees to lenders. To avoid lawsuits Lenders had to find ways to manipulate a qualification of income. Generaly this would be by giving low adjustable interest rates. These rates would rise after 3-5 years (depending on the term and rate). The expectation was of course that real estate values would also rise during that period and people who couldn't afford to remain in the loan would have aquirred equity and could sell and get out of the loan. This did not happen as loans came due. The Dems affirmative action home loan policy cost the country trillions in equity as foreclosures effected apprasials of all homes in every neighborhood and City. The domino effect went right up the economic city, county, and states tax ladder as well. Soon employment was hit making a complete collapse.
You can thank Barney Frank-Chris Dodd-Schumur-Waters-Meeks-Davis-Clay- and all Democrats geniuses with their personal-lobby-policies of ingraciating themselves with playing poor-man district force politicts for re-election pay back numbers.
The dems blocked all attempts to investigate and regulate Fannie and Freddie, the two largest contributors to our economic crisis.

Did Michelle Obama tell the African Press International news agency: "My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by his stepfather." ?
We are awaiting the tape to be released.
“Will Michelle Obama tape ‘change political atmosphere in America’?” “African news agency says she should ‘come clean’ on critical telephone call”
The African Press International news agency, which reported that Michelle Obama called to protest its coverage of WND investigative stories about her husband, characterizing the source of the material as “racist” and describing WND senior investigative reporter Jerome Corsi as “evil,” now is calling on the possible first lady of the United States to “come clean” about her call.
As WND reported, the Norway-based API said Michelle Obama called to accuse the agency of “colluding with American Internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband.”
The Obama campaign immediately denied there was any telephone call, and API later announced it had recorded the conversation. Besieged by demands from both sides of a campaign that has reached the white-hot stage, the agency said although it had the tapes, it would not release them immediately.
Now, in a statement dated Friday because of the time difference, API Chief Editor Korir has promised that the tape will be made available after his lawyers clear it for publication, and he denied being an advocate either for or against Obama’s campaign.
He said the delay also is intended to allow Michelle Obama to explain her actions first.
There was no response to a WND call to the Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago tonight to request a comment.
“A number of Americans who are die-hard Obama followers have tried their best to intimidate API using all kinds of threatening methods when they call in and when they e-mail us,” the API statement said. “They are implying that API is planning to destroy Obama’s chances to become the next U.S. president. API does not have a direct interest in the U.S. presidential elections and we want Obama supporters to understand that. However, when someone who may become the next first lady makes such comments as in the story we have published, the public have the right to know. Intimidation directed to the publishers of the story is not the answer.
“The delay to make public the recordings is expected to give time to Mrs. Obama to come clean and tell the American people that her comments were not meant to harm anyone but that she was reacting to the media pressure on her husband. She should also come out and tell the American people that she will not discriminate those who are not Obama fanatics if she becomes the first lady,” the statement said.
Those on the other side of the political fence also were told to back off.
“Those who do not support Obama are actively pushing for the release of the recordings also, and we understand them very well. In many telephone conversations with them we, however, get disturbed when we realize that most of them want the recordings to be released because they want to use it to stop Senator Obama from being elected president. They state clearly that if the story is true and released now, the contents will sa[v]e America from a constitutional crisis that may come if things come out after the elections that proves Obama was adopted by a foreigner, thus, disqualifying him from the presidency,” Korir wrote.
The statement confirmed that API “has recordings of the conversation between API and Mrs. Obama” and “we confirm that the audio will be released to the public.”
“In the last 24 hours, API has been consulting legal advisers on the way forward in order to avoid being sued by the Obama camp. API has realized that the contents of the tapes if made public may change the political atmosphere in America for ever, especially in the next few days,” the statement said.
“API now understands the impact of the statements made by Mrs. Obama. The American people have reacted in a way we in API would never have expected.
“Many have question[ed] why Mrs. Obama would choose a little known online media group instead of the American media. API was chosen because of a Nairobi contact that did not like the way API was covering Barack Obama using information collected from American media outlets. The Nairobi contact prevailed upon Mrs. Obama to talk to API,” the statement said.
“The only thing API may have done wrong is not informing Mrs. Obama that the conversation was being recorded. This is why it is taking time to release the recording while consulting a legal team because API wants to be legally safe from any Obama camp law suit,” Korir wrote.
“API is not out to convince the American public of anything. We do not want to influence the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections. API got a true story and published it. The fact that the story has caused a stir was unexpected, but that does not mean API must rush in a manner that will cause problems to itself, just to satisfy those who want the audio tapes so badly,” the statement said. “When the legal concerns are cleared, which is happening in a short while, API will make public all the recordings available. This will also include comments, not yet published, which will most certainly put the Obama campaign spokesperson who had dismissed the story off balance.
“Even if our recordings or any other recordings had surfaced after the elections and if the contents were damaging to the elected person that still could have caused any elected president to vacate the White House. We all know that the tapes released in the U.S. in 1974 forced President Richard Nixon out of office. The truth is the truth. The tapes during Nixon time did not lie. The same here. The recordings that API will release soon will not lie to the American people. Most probably, it will change the political landscape, something the Americans should start getting prepared to face,” Korir suggested.
API’s original report said Mrs. Obama said she had hoped the African media “was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.”
API’s account said it was “only relaying what the American bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations.” This, according to the story, angered her.
“African Press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,” she reportedly said. “It is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a stepfather. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband’s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by his stepfather. The important thing here is where my husband’s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that my husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner.”
After the initial API report, Tommy Vietor, an Obama campaign spokesman, told National Review’s Byron York the conversation didn’t happen.
“The answer is no, it’s not real, the report is made up. She did not speak to the organization,” Vietor said, according to York’s report on National Review Online’s blog “The Corner.”
Korir, however, responded to WND’s e-mail confirming the report is accurate.
“API hereby confirms to you that the story is true and if the huge interest on this particular story continues, we will post the recording on our website in the next immediate days,” his e-mail said.
API asked Michelle Obama to comment on the detention of Corsi during his visit last week to Kenya, where he was investigating the presidential candidate’s links to a controversial strongman serving as prime minister.
“When API asked Mrs. Obama to comment on why Dr. Corsi was arrested by the Kenyan government and whether she thought Kenya’s prime minister, Mr. Raila Odinga, was involved in Dr. Corsi’s arrest, she got irritated and simply told API not to dig [into] that which will support evil people who are out to stop her husband from getting the presidency,” the publication reported.
API also said the Democratic candidate’s wife had some clear instructions for the publication.
“Mrs. Obama asked API to write a good story about her husband and that will earn API an invitation to the inauguration ceremony when, as she put it, her husband will be installed as the next President of the United States of America next year,” the report said.

Obama wrote in High School
I saw an old forgotten man
On an old, forgotten road
staggering and numb
pulls out forgotten dignity from under his flaking coat,
And walks a straight line along the crooked world.
Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
In, sprinkled with ashes,
Pop switches channels, takes another
Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks
What to do with me, a green young man
Who fails to consider the
Flim and flam of the world, since
Things have been easy for me;
I stare hard at his face, a stare
That deflects off his brow;
I'm sure he's unaware of his
Dark, watery eyes, that
Glance in different directions,
And his slow, unwelcome twitches,
Fail to pass.
I listen, nod,
Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,
Beige T-shirt, yelling,
Yelling in his ears, that hang
With heavy lobes, but he's still telling
His joke, so I ask why
He's so unhappy, to which he replies...
But I don't care anymore, cause
He took too damn long, and from
Under my seat, I pull out the
Mirror I've been saving; I'm laughing,
Laughing loud, the blood rushing from his face
To mine, as he grows small,
A spot in my brain, something
That may be squeezed out, like a
Watermelon seed between
Pop takes another shot, neat,
Points out the same amber
Stain on his shorts that I've got on mine, and
Makes me smell his smell, coming
From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem
He wrote before his mother died,
Stands, shouts, and asks
For a hug, as I shrink, my
Arms barely reaching around
His thick, oily neck, and his broad back; 'cause
I see my face, framed within
Pop's black-framed glasses
And know he's laughing too.
Under water grottos, caverns
Filled with apes
That eat figs.
Stepping on the figs
That the apes
Eat, they crunch.
The apes howl, bare
Their fangs, dance,
Tumble in the
Musty, wet pelts
Glistening in the blue.

Implying that everyone was wrong but himself, Obama has built a platform on “Bring the troops home now!”
But what did Obama say to foriegn officials on his overseas world citizen tour?
The New York Post has revealed that Presidential candidate Barack Obama secretly asked Iraqi officials not to negotiate with the current United States Administration to draw down troops from Iraq.
According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.
"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview.
Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion."
Knowing that a Bush Administration success in Iraq would take away from his talking points, Obama chose to discuss 'keeping troops in Iraq' so he could continue attacks for his own political aspirations while delaying troop reductions until after the November elections.
Oh- and let's not forget that after conducting these shadowy discussions of keeping troops in Iraq until 'the One' could appear to be their saviour - Obama then went to confront General Patrieus to try to sell the idea that he still wanted a troop withdrawal - knowing full well the General didn't agree with Obama's withdrawal timetable plan. Ah- the sound bytes!
Havin your cake and eatin' it too?
Obama then came back home without his anti-war voting block aware of his two-faced position.
How dispicable a human being who uses troops on one hand with appearances of principle, while in back room deals Obama manouvers to keep involved these same troops with his hidden hand and his delayed 'timetable.'
Despite the Obama Media keeping the truth and facts from the American public this new revelation isn't such a surprise at all for those of us who have done our homework. It goes to Obama's character and the depths of his treachery and sleaze which appear to know no boundaries.
Obamas sleazy stragetry to get himself elected are beneath contempt and deciet. Obama's tactics approach Treason and violation of the Logan Act which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating or confering with foreign governments.
If Obama will do anything to get into Power - what will Obama do to stay in Power?
If the media lies and protects Obama to get him elected - how can we expect to ever be told the truth if he were to be elected?
This New York Post news has been out for 2 days- and again- I haven't seen it reported on the tube.
Hold it! Just in on CNN- Breaking News! Bird poop is plaguing a nieghborhood.

Stephanopoulus quickly converts Obama to Christian faith.
In a stunning slip on national TV, Obama refers to "my muslim faith"
STEPHANOPOULOS: You mention your Christian faith. Yesterday you took off after the Republicans for suggesting you have Muslim connections. Just a few minutes ago, Rick Davis, John McCain ’s campaign manager, said they’ve never done that. This is a false and cynical attempt to play victim.
OBAMA: You know what? I mean, these guys love to throw a rock and hide their hand. The…
STEPHANOPOULOS: The McCain campaign has never suggested you have Muslim connections.
OBAMA: No, no, no. But the — I don’t think that when you look at what is being promulgated on Fox News, let’s say, and Republican commentators who are closely allied to these folks…
STEPHANOPOULOS: But John McCain said that’s wrong.
OBAMA: Now, well, look. Listen. You and I both know that the minute that Governor Palin was forced to talk about her daughter, I immediately said that’s off limits. And…
STEPHANOPOULOS: But John McCain said the same thing about questioning your faith.
OBAMA: And what was the first thing the McCain’s campaign went out and did? They said, look, these liberal blogs that support Obama are out there attacking Governor Palin.
Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come…
STEPHANOPOULOS: Christian faith.
OBAMA: … my Christian faith. Well, what I’m saying is that he hasn’t suggested…
STEPHANOPOULOS: Has connections, right.
OBAMA: … that I’m a Muslim. And I think that his campaign’s upper echelons have not, either.
What I think is fair to say is that, coming out of the Republican camp, there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I’m not who I say I am when it comes to my faith — something which I find deeply offensive, and that has been going on for a pretty long time.
And-- you guessed it- not a peep out of the biased media today about Obama's Muslim affirmation as the lefty locusts swarm across Alaska trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin.
Meanwhile all we can do is sit back and wait for the Obama WORM...(What Obama Really Meant)

After the props have served their visual purpose, and Ceasars columns are hauled back to Hollywoodge, Obama-Democrats toss the American Flag in TRASH after DNC Coronation.
One rarely sees an American flag Hanging, waving or standing anywhere around Obama get togethers. He wouldn't wear one until his attitude buckled to his arrogant image being hurt. He removed the American Flag from the tail of his campaign plane to go greet America's critics abroad. Last month when I last checked there were ZERO American flags at his campaign web-site.
Do you see a pattern?
Perhaps if the Flags had an image of Obama on them then these greenie quacking patriots would have taken them home with them.
These 12,000 trashed flags, in 84 garbage bags, were rescued by Vendors & Boy Scouts and are being handed out by Vets at John McCain's events today.

Sarah Palin's Speech (44 minute) **** Video ****
You can also find the speech video, at the Country First forum , broken up into 4 smaller parts for those of us still using slooooow dial up.(thanks PRD)
Speech text (thanks Poppy)
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin
Mr. Chairman, delegates, and fellow citizens: I am honored to be considered for the nomination for Vice President of the United States…
I accept the call to help our nominee for president to serve and defend America.
I accept the challenge of a tough fight in this election… against confident opponents … at a crucial hour for our country.
And I accept the privilege of serving with a man who has come through much harder missions … and met far graver challenges … and knows how tough fights are won - the next president of the United States, John S. McCain.
It was just a year ago when all the experts in Washington counted out our nominee because he refused to hedge his commitment to the security of the country he loves.
With their usual certitude, they told us that all was lost - there was no hope for this candidate who said that he would rather lose an election than see his country lose a war.
But the pollsters and pundits overlooked just one thing when they wrote him off.
They overlooked the caliber of the man himself - the determination, resolve, and sheer guts of Senator John McCain. The voters knew better.
And maybe that’s because they realize there is a time for politics and a time for leadership … a time to campaign and a time to put our country first.
Our nominee for president is a true profile in courage, and people like that are hard to come by.
He’s a man who wore the uniform of this country for 22 years, and refused to break faith with those troops in Iraq who have now brought victory within sight.
And as the mother of one of those troops, that is exactly the kind of man I want as commander in chief. I’m just one of many moms who’ll say an extra prayer each night for our sons and daughters going into harm’s way.
Our son Track is 19.
And one week from tomorrow - September 11th - he’ll deploy to Iraq with the Army infantry in the service of his country.
My nephew Kasey also enlisted, and serves on a carrier in the Persian Gulf.
My family is proud of both of them and of all the fine men and women serving the country in uniform. Track is the eldest of our five children.
In our family, it’s two boys and three girls in between - my strong and kind-hearted daughters Bristol, Willow, and Piper.
And in April, my husband Todd and I welcomed our littlest one into the world, a perfectly beautiful baby boy named Trig. From the inside, no family ever seems typical.
That’s how it is with us.
Our family has the same ups and downs as any other … the same challenges and the same joys.
Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge.
And children with special needs inspire a special love.
To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters.
I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House. Todd is a story all by himself.
He’s a lifelong commercial fisherman … a production operator in the oil fields of Alaska’s North Slope … a proud member of the United Steel Workers’ Union … and world champion snow machine racer.
Throw in his Yup’ik Eskimo ancestry, and it all makes for quite a package.
We met in high school, and two decades and five children later he’s still my guy. My Mom and Dad both worked at the elementary school in our small town.
And among the many things I owe them is one simple lesson: that this is America, and every woman can walk through every door of opportunity.
My parents are here tonight, and I am so proud to be the daughter of Chuck and Sally Heath. Long ago, a young farmer and habber-dasher from Missouri followed an unlikely path to the vice presidency.
A writer observed: “We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty, sincerity, and dignity.” I know just the kind of people that writer had in mind when he praised Harry Truman.
I grew up with those people.
They are the ones who do some of the hardest work in America … who grow our food, run our factories, and fight our wars.
They love their country, in good times and bad, and they’re always proud of America. I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town.
I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids’ public education better.
When I ran for city council, I didn’t need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters, and knew their families, too.
Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown.
And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves.
I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we don’t quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren’t listening.
We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.
As for my running mate, you can be certain that wherever he goes, and whoever is listening, John McCain is the same man. I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment.< br>
And I’ve learned quickly, these past few days, that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone.
But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.
Politics isn’t just a game of clashing parties and competing interests.
The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it.
No one expects us to agree on everything.
But we are expected to govern with integrity, good will, clear convictions, and … a servant’s heart.
I pledge to all Americans that I will carry myself in this spirit as vice president of the United States. This was the spirit that brought me to the governor’s office, when I took on the old politics as usual in Juneau … when I stood up to the special interests, the lobbyists, big oil companies, and the good-ol’ boys network.
Sudden and relentless reform never sits well with entrenched interests and power brokers. That’s why true reform is so hard to achieve.
But with the support of the citizens of Alaska, we shook things up.
And in short order we put the government of our state back on the side of the people.
I came to office promising major ethics reform, to end the culture of self-dealing. And today, that ethics reform is the law.
While I was at it, I got rid of a few things in the governor’s office that I didn’t believe our citizens should have to pay for.
That luxury jet was over the top. I put it on eBay.
I also drive myself to work.
And I thought we could muddle through without the governor’s personal chef - although I’ve got to admit that sometimes my kids sure miss her. I came to office promising to control spending - by request if possible and by veto if necessary.
Senator McCain also promises to use the power of veto in defense of the public interest - and as a chief executive, I can assure you it works.
Our state budget is under control.
We have a surplus.
And I have protected the taxpayers by vetoing wasteful spending: nearly half a billion dollars in vetoes.
I suspended the state fuel tax, and championed reform to end the abuses of earmark spending by Congress.
I told the Congress “thanks, but no thanks,” for that Bridge to Nowhere.
If our state wanted a bridge, we’d build it ourselves. When oil and gas prices went up dramatically, and filled up the state treasury, I sent a large share of that revenue back where it belonged - directly to the people of Alaska.
And despite fierce opposition from oil company lobbyists, who kind of liked things the way they were, we broke their monopoly on power and resources.
As governor, I insisted on competition and basic fairness to end their control of our state and return it to the people.
I fought to bring about the largest private-sector infrastructure project in North American history.
And when that deal was struck, we began a nearly forty billion dollar natural gas pipeline to help lead America to energy independence.
That pipeline, when the last section is laid and its valves are opened, will lead America one step farther away from dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart.
The stakes for our nation could not be higher.
When a hurricane strikes in the Gulf of Mexico, this country should not be so dependent on imported oil that we are forced to draw from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
And families cannot throw away more and more of their paychecks on gas and heating oil.
With Russia wanting to control a vital pipeline in the Caucasus, and to divide and intimidate our European allies by using energy as a weapon, we cannot leave ourselves at the mercy of foreign suppliers.
To confront the threat that Iran might seek to cut off nearly a fifth of world energy supplies … or that terrorists might strike again at the Abqaiq facility in Saudi Arabia … or that Venezuela might shut off its oil deliveries … we Americans need to produce more of our own oil and gas.
And take it from a gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska: we’ve got lots of both.
Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America’s energy problems - as if we all didn’t know that already.
But the fact that drilling won’t solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all.
Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines … build more new-clear plants … create jobs with clean coal … and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources.
We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers. I’ve noticed a pattern with our opponent.
Maybe you have, too.
We’ve all heard his dramatic speeches before devoted followers.
And there is much to like and admire about our opponent.
But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word “victory” except when he’s talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.
Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit.
Terrorist states are seeking new-clear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions.
Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights? Government is too big … he wants to grow it.
Congress spends too much … he promises more.
Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific.
The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes … raise payroll taxes … raise investment income taxes … raise the death tax … raise business taxes … and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars. My sister Heather and her husband have just built a service station that’s now opened for business - like millions of others who run small businesses.
How are they going to be any better off if taxes go up? Or maybe you’re trying to keep your job at a plant in Michigan or Ohio … or create jobs with clean coal from Pennsylvania or West Virginia … or keep a small farm in the family right here in Minnesota.
How are you going to be better off if our opponent adds a massive tax burden to the American economy? Here’s how I look at the choice Americans face in this election.
In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers.
And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.
They’re the ones whose names appear on laws and landmark reforms, not just on buttons and banners, or on self-designed presidential seals.
Among politicians, there is the idealism of high-flown speechmaking, in which crowds are stirringly summoned to support great things.
And then there is the idealism of those leaders, like John McCain, who actually do great things. They’re the ones who are good for more than talk … the ones we have always been able to count on to serve and defend America. Senator McCain’s record of actual achievement and reform helps explain why so many special interests, lobbyists, and comfortable committee chairmen in Congress have fought the prospect of a McCain presidency - from the primary election of 2000 to this very day.
Our nominee doesn’t run with the Washington herd.
He’s a man who’s there to serve his country, and not just his party.
A leader who’s not looking for a fight, but is not afraid of one either. Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the current do-nothing Senate, not long ago summed up his feelings about our nominee.
He said, quote, “I can’t stand John McCain.” Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps no accolade we hear this week is better proof that we’ve chosen the right man. Clearly what the Majority Leader was driving at is that he can’t stand up to John McCain. That is only one more reason to take the maverick of the Senate and put him in the White House. My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.” This world of threats and dangers is not just a community, and it doesn’t just need an organizer.
And though both Senator Obama and Senator Biden have been going on lately about how they are always, quote, “fighting for you,” let us face the matter squarely.
There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you … in places where winning means survival and defeat means death … and that man is John McCain. In our day, politicians have readily shared much lesser tales of adversity than the nightmare world in which this man, and others equally brave, served and suffered for their country.
It’s a long way from the fear and pain and squalor of a six-by-four cell in Hanoi to the Oval Office.
But if Senator McCain is elected president, that is the journey he will have made.
It’s the journey of an upright and honorable man - the kind of fellow whose name you will find on war memorials in small towns across this country, only he was among those who came home.
To the most powerful office on earth, he would bring the compassion that comes from having once been powerless … the wisdom that comes even to the captives, by the grace of God … the special confidence of those who have seen evil, and seen how evil is overcome. A fellow prisoner of war, a man named Tom Moe of Lancaster, Ohio, recalls looking through a pin-hole in his cell door as Lieutenant Commander John McCain was led down the hallway, by the guards, day after day.
As the story is told, “When McCain shuffled back from torturous interrogations, he would turn toward Moe’s door and flash a grin and thumbs up” - as if to say, “We’re going to pull through this.” My fellow Americans, that is the kind of man America needs to see us through these next four years.
For a season, a gifted speaker can inspire with his words.
For a lifetime, John McCain has inspired with his deeds.

It becomes more and more clear that there are zero degrees of separation between Obama and his anti-american associations and marx mentors.
Once again the 'language' of the 'change' radicals pops up- this time from Mrs. O but I am proud of my country for the first timer.
In Michelle's DNC speech she said words that popped the Alinsky antenna into focus when she said of Barack's Chicago community organizing:
"Barack stood up that day, and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be..." and
"All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do – that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be."
Now let's check in with who "we" is in Alinsky's Rules for change Radicals:
"The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position"..."The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be."
Let's skip over the unethical part of this families penchant for not giving credit for words they take from others - 'cause redistribution of have-not words need to be spread and shared in their world.
Let's concentrate our focus on change words 'that matter' and our own fight against the Obama's real political position.
The Obama's Socalist World as it should be - will not be the world the Haves 'knew'...and that just won't do.

Obama Sued in Philadelphia Federal Court on Grounds he is Constitutionally Ineligible for the Presidency.
A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States.
Phillip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. According to Berg, he filed the suit--just days before the DNC is to hold its nominating convention in Denver--for the health of the Democratic Party.
"I filed this action at this time," Berg stated, "to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.".
Berg cited a number of unanswered questions regarding the Illinois senator's background, and in today's lawsuit maintained that Sen. Obama is not a natural born U.S. citizen or that, if he ever was, he lost his citizenship when he was adopted in Indonesia. Berg also cites what he calls "dual loyalties" due to his citizenship and ties with Kenya and Indonesia.
Even if Sen. Obama can prove his U.S. citizenship, Berg stated, citing the senator's use of a birth certificate from the state of Hawaii verified as a forgery by three independent document forensic experts, the issue of "multi-citizenship with responsibilities owed to and allegiance to other countries" remains on the table.
In the lawsuit, Berg states that Sen. Obama was born in Kenya, and not in Hawaii as the senator maintains. Before giving birth, according to the lawsuit, Obama's mother traveled to Kenya with his father but was prevented from flying back to Hawaii because of the late stage of her pregnancy, "apparently a normal restriction to avoid births during a flight." As Sen. Obama's own paternal grandmother, half-brother and half-sister have also claimed, Berg maintains that Stanley Ann Dunham--Obama's mother--gave birth to little Barack in Kenya and subsequently flew to Hawaii to register the birth.
Berg cites inconsistent accounts of Sen. Obama's birth, including reports that he was born at two separate hospitals--Kapiolani Hospital and Queens Hospital--in Honolulu, as well a profound lack of birthing records for Stanley Ann Dunham, though simple "registry of birth" records for Barack Obama are available in a Hawaiian public records office.
Should Sen. Obama truly have been born in Kenya, Berg writes, the laws on the books at the time of his birth hold that U.S. citizenship may only pass to a child born overseas to a U.S. citizen parent and non-citizen parent if the former was at least 19 years of age. Sen. Obama's mother was only 18 at the time. Therefore, because U.S. citizenship could not legally be passed on to him, Obama could not be registered as a "natural born" citizen and would therefore be ineligible to seek the presidency pursuant to Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution.
Moreover, even if Sen. Obama could have somehow been deemed "natural born," that citizenship was lost in or around 1967 when he and his mother took up residency in Indonesia, where Stanley Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian citizen. Berg also states that he possesses copies of Sen. Obama's registration to Fransiskus Assisi School In Jakarta, Indonesia which clearly show that he was registered under the name "Barry Soetoro" and his citizenship listed as Indonesian.
The Hawaiian birth certificate, Berg says, is a forgery. In the suit, the attorney states that the birth certificate on record is a forgery, has been identified as such by three independent document forensic experts, and actually belonged to Maya Kasandra Soetoro, Sen. Obama's half-sister.
"Voters donated money, goods and services to elect a nominee and were defrauded by Sen. Obama's lies and obfuscations," Berg stated. "If the DNC officers ... had performed one ounce of due diligence we would not find ourselves in this emergency predicament, one week away from making a person the nominee who has lost their citizenship as a child and failed to even perform the basic steps of regaining citizenship as prescribed by constitutional laws."
"It is unfair to the country," he continued, "for candidates of either party to become the nominee when there is any question of the ability to serve if elected."
Obama sued in Philadelphia court...google return Results 1 - 10 of about 103,000
...and you guessed it - the media hasn't reported this lawsuit at all. ZERO. Nada, Zip.

18 months ago: This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro into the Catholic school made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro. The document lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and shows his Muslim step-father listed the boy's religion as Islam.(AP Photo/ Tatan Syuflana)

In a closed door meeting Tuesday night Obama said, the
200,000 20,000 souls who thronged to his speech in Berlin came not just for him, he told the enthralled audience of congressional representatives. "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."
"Yes I AM !!!"
And here I thought they came for the free music and beer.
Somehow it is remenicent of a time in 2007 when he said, "I am confident that we can create a Kingdom right here on Earth."
At least the annoited One is slowly becoming more transparent.
Why is it "America" always has some "flawed" symbol, tradition, or history that Obama deems needs fixing?
He doesn't even want people staying home celebrating on the 4th of July. America's fourth of July is more than barbqueing and fireworks. To show that you Love America, you need to get out and do something for people. Do something to change it.
Of course he was flippin' burgers for Montana voters the day he said it.
Domestic issues are one thing to fix...but one of Obama's "possibility" issues seems to grow more and more in a direction of forming a more perfect One World...with a collective someone as it's central symbol.
Obama on Hope: America is the best Country in the world!...Now, let's change it.

In a few weeks the historic 2008 Democratic Party Presidential Primary between an Africazn American Man and a White Woman will end. The two candidates competed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam. At the end of these contests, neither candidate had earned enough pledged delegates to garner the necessary 2118 needed to win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Hillary Clinton earned 1640 pledged delegates while Barack Obama earned 1763 pledged delegates. A paltry 123 pledged separated the two candidates at the end of the primary season. Since there was no clear winner, the superdelegates would determine the Democratic nominee.
Approximately 800 superdelegates will make up around 20% of the 4000 delegates at the convention. These superdelegates are Democratic Party leaders, Democratic governors, and Democratic members of congress. They have the right to endorse either candidate without reason and can change their endorsement from one candidate to another at any time. The superdelegates are very powerful and highly sought after by candidates. One superdelegate is equal to one pledged delegate or 11,361 voters in California or 7,220 voters in New York. Many factors influence which candidate a superdelegate endorses but they usually vote the way their constituents vote. Some superdelegates have intense personal relationships with particular candidates that may influence their endorsement. Members of congress may also be influenced by money given or promised by party leaders, the DNC or the candidates themselves.
Politicians collect money for their campaigns but most American’s don’t realize that politicians collect a separate a pot of money called a Leadership Political Action Committee or PAC. These PACs are used to hire additional staff and pay for additional perks such as limos and first class flights. But one of the major reasons for these PAC’s is to donate to the campaigns of other candidates. Nancy Pelosi’s PAC is called PAC to the Future, Barack Obama’s PAC is called Hope Fund, and Hillary Clinton’s PAC is called Hillpac. Money was distributed by these PAC’s to the superdelegates to influence their voting. The Federal Elections Commission requires scrupulous reporting of how PAC money is obtained and how it is spent. This data can be retrieved at www.opensecrets.org.
In 2007, Obama distributed 299,000 from his PAC to superdelegates. He especially targeted the states of Iowa and New Hampshire. On July 25, 2007, the Hope Fund made $1000 donations to each of the following groups: Hillsborough County Democrats, Hudson, NH; Martha Fuller Clark for State Senate, Portsmouth, NH; Merrimack County Democrats, Chichester, NH; New Hampshire for John Lynch, Manchester, NH; Sgambati 4 NH Senate, Tilton, NH; Stafford County Democratic Committee, Durham, NH and Sullivan County Democrats, Claremont, NH. Obama also gave $5000 contributions to New Hampshire Democratic Party, Concord, New Hampshire, on July 26,2007; New Hampshire for John Lynch on July 25, 2007, and New Hampshire Democratic State Committee, Concord, New Hampshire on November 3, 2006. Obama did not announce his candidacy until May 2, 2007.
Obama also gave New Hampshire Democratic State Senator Jacalyn Cilley $1000 on July 25, 2007. She endorsed Obama on July 31, 2007, just six days after his contribution to her campaign. On July 26, 2007, first term New Hampshire Congressman Paul Hodes of New Hampshire endorsed Obama. The New Hampshire Primary was not until January 8, 2008 and Hillary won New Hampshire.
By March 28, 2008, Hope Fund donated $710,900 to superdelegates, more than three times as much as Hillpac. ($236,100). A study by the Center for Responsive Politics showed that presidential candidates who gave more money to a superdelegate received their endorsement 82% of the time. This is especially disturbing when the superdelegates endorse a candidate that is decidedly contrary to the will of the voters in their state and their districts.
After reviewing state and congressional voting records as well as PAC donations, members of congress were identified that fulfilled the following four criteria: 1. These members endorsed Barack Obama. 2. The constituents of their state preferred Hillary Clinton. 3. The constituents of their district preferred Hillary Clinton. 4. They got more PAC money from Hope Fund than from HillPac. These senators are Jeff Bingaman, Frank Lautenberg, and Jay Rockefeller. The members of the house are Jason Altmire, Dennis Cardoza, Jim Costa, Joe Donelly, Gabrielle Giffords, Baron Hill, Ron Klein, Patrick Murphy, Gerald Mc Nerney, Carol She-Porter, Zack Space, Niki Tsongas, and Charlie Wilson.
Charlie Wilson is the perfect example. He ran in Ohio’s District 6 in 2006. His seat was the seat of the former governor and is located in Southern Ohio. Wilson was a last minute candidate for his seat and because of this was a write-in candidate. The governor and the party worked hard to get Wilson elected. President Clinton made an audio recording endorsing Wilson that went out to 50,000 homes. The governor of Ohio is a big Clinton supporter, the voters of Ohio voted 54-44% percent in favor of Clinton, and District 6, Wilson’s District, voted for Clinton 70% - 27%. Yet Wilson endorsed Obama. It looks like there is no loyalty in politics to either your constituents or your friends. Wilson got $7,000 of PAC money from Barack Obama, but no money from Hillary Clinton. Was this a factor in his choice?
The following chart [here] summarizes the data culled from a variety of sources. The data raises obvious questions about the inherent power of superdelegates and their vulnerability to financial contributions. Contributions from other Pacs such as Pac to the Future need to be reviewed.

by David Cohen, Evening Standard
It is an extraordinary sight to walk into a basic two-room house under a mango tree in rural east Africa and discover what is essentially a shrine to Barack Obama.
The small brick house with no running water, a tin roof and roving chickens, goats and cows is owned by Sarah Obama,Barack's 86-year-old step-grandmother. Inside, the walls are decorated with a 2008 Obama election sticker, an old "Barack Obama for Senate" poster on which he has written "Mama Sarah Habai [how are you?]", a 2005 calendar that says "The Kenyan Wonder Boy in the US", and more than a dozen family photos.
But this bucolic scene in his father's village of Kogelo near the Equator in western Kenya conceals a troubling reality that, until now, has never been spoken about. Barack Obama, the Evening Standard can reveal, after we went to the village earlier this month, has failed to honour the pledges of assistance that he made to a school named in his honour when he visited here amid great fanfare two years ago.
At that historic homecoming in August 2006 Obama was greeted as a hero with thousands lining the dirt streets of Kogelo. He visited the Senator Obama Kogelo Secondary School built on land donated by his paternal grandfather.
After addressing the pupils, a third of whom are orphans, and dancing with them as they sang songs in his honour, he was shown a school with four dilapidated classrooms that lacked even basic resources such as water, sanitation and
He told the assembled press, local politicians (who included current Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga), and students: "Hopefully I can provide some assistance in the future to this school and all that it can be." He then turned to the school's principal, Yuanita Obiero, and assured her and her teachers: "I know you are working very hard and struggling to bring up this school, but I have said I will assist the school and I will do so."
Obiero says that although Obama did not explicitly use the word "financial" to qualify the nature of the assistance he was offering, "there was no doubt among us [teachers] that is what he meant. We interpreted his words as meaning
he would help fund the school, either personally or by raising sponsors or both, in order to give our school desperately-needed modern facilities and a facelift". She added that 10 of the school's 144 pupils are Obama's relatives. Obiero was not the only one to think that the US Senator from Illinois, who had recently acquired a $1.65 million house in Chicago, would cough up. Obama's own grandmother Sarah confidently told reporters before his visit:
"When he comes down here, he will change the face of the school and, believe me, our poverty in Kogelo will be a thing of the past."
But the Evening Standard has heard that the promises he made to help the school as well as a local orphanage appear to have been empty.
Seven months ago I travelled to Iowa to cover the start of the US primaries and was impressed by Obama's charisma and integrity as he kicked off a thrilling battle with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Presidential nomination.
Now, with only John McCain standing in the way of him making history as America's first black President, and amid the fanfare over his current world tour, nowhere is this possibility more eagerly awaited than in Kogelo, the place where his father and grandfather are buried. Yet there is disappointment and hurt here, too. Granting us access to the school and its records, Principal Obiero, 48, tells us: "Senator Obama has not honoured the promises he gave me when we met in 2006 and in his earlier letter to the school. He has not given us even one shilling. But we still have hope."
The letter Obiero refers to - dated 22 June 2005, signed by Obama and addressed to her - was written after his election to the US Senate in 2004 and hangs, framed, on the wall of her spartan office alongside photographs of Obama's visit to their school. It says: "I am honoured that you have decided to rename the Kogelo School in my name.The land that the school is built on was donated by my grandparents and I am proud to carry on the tradition of supporting the school."
Obiero and her board of governors followed up his letter offering " support" with a bald, formal request for funds in the form of a nine-page proposal, a copy of which has been provided to the Evening Standard, laying out their ambitions for the school. In it they ask for 8.2 million Kenyan shillings (approximately £65,000) to upgrade the school. The money would be used, they say, to bring water to the school by sinking a borehole and building a water
tank, erect a perimeter fence, complete the science laboratory and add muchneeded new classrooms, additional latrines, and a school dining hall.
Obiero recalls: "When the US Ambassador William Bellamy came to visit the school for the official renaming ceremony in February 2006, we gave him two copies of the proposal, one for the Embassy and one to give to Senator Obama. But we have not heard anything from either of them since."
Recently, she adds, she gave another copy of the proposal to Obama's Kenyan half-sister, Auma Obama, who recently returned to Nairobi after living in England and working in children's services in Reading. Auma had been married to a British man but they are now divorced. "Auma also promised to pass it on to her brother," says Obiero.
When we ask an Obama spokesperson in Kenya, who is also a family member, why no support has been forthcoming, he says: "We have no comment, the family are not doing any interviews at this time."
However, the school's senior teacher Dalmas Raloo, 41, who is often used as a translator for Obama's grandmother who only speaks Luo, and is a friend of the family, says the family are mystified by what they are calling "Obama's lapse". "If you ask whether Obama's family think he should give something to the village and to the school, the answer is 'yes, definitely'. But they feel it should come from him spontaneously. They don't want to ask him for it."
During Obama's visit to the school, he opened their half-finished science laboratory (built with £4,900 raised by the community) and wrote in the visitor's book: "Congratulations on the new laboratory!" Today, the lab has been mothballed because they ran out of funds to equip it and because, critically, there is no running water. "We must pay the man with the donkey to fetch us water from the river four kilometres away," says Obiero. The situation in the school mirrors that of Kogelo village where the people live without water, electricity or access to proper
healthcare and on average incomes of less than $1 a day. Yet they remain diehard fans of the man who has put their rural community on the map and have even renamed the beer, called Senator, in his honour: locals now order "an Obama".
Obama's "lapse" is all the more difficult to understand given that he wrote in his 1995 autobiography, Dreams from My Father, that Kogelo occupies a special place in his heart as being where he reconciled the diverse parts of
himself - American and African, white mother and black father. Obama wrote how he fell to his knees, sobbing, between the graves of his father and grandfather at the family compound.
"When my tears were finally spent," he wrote, "I felt a calmness wash over me. I felt the circle finally close. I realised that who I was, what I cared about, was no longer just a matter of intellect or obligation, no longer a construct of words. I saw that my life in America - the black life, the white life, the sense of abandonment I'd felt as a boy, the frustration and hope I'd witnessed in Chicago - all of it was connected with this small plot of earth an ocean away."
Obama had visited Kogelo for the first time in the 1980s after attending Columbia University and then again in 1991 to research his memoirs after graduating from Harvard Law School. He would later become a civil rights lawyer and community organiser before going into politics and serving in the Illinois Senate in 1997 and then the US Senate in 2004.
On those two voyages of personal discovery to Kogelo, he learned that his grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, who lived to 105 according to his gravestone (1870-1975), had been a respected elder and witchdoctor. But it was the road travelled by his estranged father, Barack Hussein Obama, that inspired and intrigued him. His father had transcended his roots as a goat herder to get a PhD at Harvard and work for the Kenyan government before falling from grace and dying in a car accident in 1982 at just 46.
Barack's father, an economist, had split up with his white mother, Ann Dunham, from Kansas, when Barack was two. Apart from a month-long visit from his father when he was 10 years old, Obama would know him only through letters.
As an adult he learned there was a darker side to his father, reflecting in his book that he had apparently also been "a bitter drunk", "an abusive husband", and "a defeated, lonely bureaucrat". But during this process of soul-searching he came to know and adore the elderly woman who had raised his father, his step-grandmother Sarah Obama.
We had been told that Sarah's house, which is adjacent to the school, was patrolled by two armed security guards - who pays their wages is not clear - but when we visited the home, Sarah was away in Nairobi and we were shown in by one of Obama's young cousins.
The house is basic with a concrete floor, an outside kitchen, latrines and no running water. The only sign of modernity is the recently installed solar power unit that provides electricity for lights and a television set.
Chairs are neatly laid out around the sides of the living room, each with an embroidered cover and as you enter, there is a photograph of a young Barack Obama bent over under the weight of a sack of maize.
THE graves of Obama's father and grandfather are in the yard, and Obama's cousins and uncles, including Said Obama, 41, his father's younger brother, also live on the compound in smaller one-room houses. Behind the house there is a thriving maize plantation and a clump of banana trees in addition to the giant mango trees that dominate the property. Villagers say that despite her age, Sarah Obama still comes to market where she sells her homegrown fruit and vegetables.
The market is where we head next to speak to villagers about their hopes for an Obama victory in November and what it might do for their village. Mary Manasse, 40, who runs the Mama Siste Mini Shop selling staples such as bread and cow's milk (packaged in old Coke bottles) says she has a photograph of Obama shaking hands with her on his 2006 visit.
"Back then I was looking after 40 orphans at the orphan centre," she recalls. "We faced a desperate shortage of money and Obama told us that he especially liked special, dedicated projects like ours and wanted to help. We thought he would give funds to help our project but we got nothing. A few months later we were forced to shut down the orphan centre because of lack of funds. Just a million Kenyan shillings [£6,000] would have kept us going another year. I feel disappointed that he did not come through."
A few stalls away mango-seller Gladys Anyango, 60, does an impromptu Obama impression to the amusement of her fellow peddlers. She places her hands on her hips, gazes into the middle distance and, mimicking his deep voice, says: "How are you, people of Kogelo?" Her friends collapse with laughter. She also takes off Obama's wife, Michelle, who had accompanied him on his visit along with his two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
"Oh, but there will be a big party here when Obama wins," she adds. "We still have hope that he will bring electricity and build schools so the children have a good education. Maybe when he's President of America, he'll remember his roots and look after his community in Kenya."

Kenyan News Confused?? What do they know over yonder?
Sunday, June 27, 2004
Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.
Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans.
"It’s clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race," Ryan, 44, said in a statement. "What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign – the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play."
Although Ryan disputed the allegations, saying he and his wife went to one ‘avant-garde’ club in Paris and left because they felt uncomfortable, lashed out at the media and said it was "truly outrageous" that the Chicago Tribune got a judge to unseal the records.
The Republican choice will become an instant underdog in the campaign for the seat of retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald, since Obama held a wide lead even before the scandal broke.
"I feel for him actually," Obama told a Chicago TV station. "What he’s gone through over the last three days I think is something you wouldn’t wish on anybody."
The Republican state committee must now choose a replacement for Ryan, who had won in the primaries against seven contenders. Its task is complicated by the fact that Obama holds a comfortable lead in the polls and is widely regarded as a rising Democratic star.
The chairwoman of the Illinois Republican Party, Judy Topinka, said at a news conference, after Ryan withdrew, that Republicans would probably take several weeks to settle on a new candidate.
"Obviously, this is a bad week for our party and our state," she said.
As recently as Thursday, spokesmen for the Ryan campaign still insisted that Ryan would remain in the race. Ryan had defended himself saying, "There’s no breaking of any laws. There’s no breaking of any marriage laws. There’s no breaking of the Ten Commandments anywhere."
Poor Jack - you just can't compete with a connected guy who can pull records or make things disappear.
Bet 5 bucks Obama denies knowing where Kenya is...
Several Kenyan Newspapers write that OBama was born there.(refind)
On the other hand you can find a Commentator at same Kenyan Paper who writes in the same time period that Obama is NOT a son of the soil.
Without finding a sourced Obama quote or some legal Hawaiian or Kenyan documents we may never know.
"Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen - a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world." -Obama
I'm going to try to avoid my head shaking comments on Obama's grandiose moment in time speech or this could turn into a rather lengthy "I lowered the oceans" and re-invented the internet write-up.
Obama is a manipulating opportunist.
Obama first tells us he is going on a 'fact finding' mission, and NOT campaigning.
Meanwhile, he has a plane being painted, US flag removed from plane tail, campaign idoltry sticker embedded, and slogans down the length of this plane for his non-campaign trip.
Then when tax payers complain that he thinks we are fools, he sees again he is caught and splits the difference. The campaign will pay for part of the trip and the taxpayers can pay for the part where he is presumed to be an acting Senator while in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Meanwhile, previous to having ever left the states, the significance of the "gorbachev gate" speech which had already been written, becomes clear when Obama tells us all of the "walls" that have to be torn down. The 'tear down those walls' photo-op moment invoking Reagan.
But this wasn't a staged campaign trip.
Meanwhile back in Israel they are tearing down all of the Obama posters his staff have hung up on walls at sacred sites.
But this wasn't a campaign trip.
To empathize this non--campaign fact finding trip he tells
200,000 20,000 gathered germans (many of whom were waving the same size US flags in the crowd, apparently they brought these from their own homes) that:
"Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen - a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world."
Soooo, for some reason every stagecrafted effort is made to make this egomanic's moment, at the center of his own royal universe, look like a campaign while in 'words', every effort is made too deny it.
This wasn't a campaign trip.
Ok , we all know it was - and it is- but it's not - and it's NOT - but it is - and
Team Obama persisted with the preposterous contention that the Berlin speech was not a campaign event, Susan Rice, another Obama foreign policy aide, was also accused of hubris.
"It is not going to be a political speech,' she said. "When the President of the United States goes and gives a speech, it is not a political speech or a political rally." A reporter reminded her: "But he is not President of the United States."
So ok. So it's not a campaign speech.
So here is the kicker. Why is it a proud citizen of the United States, not on a campaign tour, immediately does two things.
1. Uses his speech to start sending out emails for those Campaign contributions.
2. States that plans to go and visit wounded warriors at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, a military hospital in Germany, and the Ramstein Air Base, had been cancled because Obama felt it would appear to be "inappropriate" for a candidate to do so while campaigning.
Nothing else he has done is inappropriate - but seeing our wounded troops is?
He is campaigning - he's not campaigning - he is- he's not -he is ... One of us is dizzy.
“The senator decided out of respect for these servicemen and women that it would be inappropriate to make a stop to visit troops at a U.S. military facility as part of a trip funded by the campaign,” Gibbs said.
OUT of "respect for"?
Yeah, out of respect for your service and sacrafice I am going to diss you all- because after all the denials- this is the campaign leg of my trip - so long.
Because of Obama's 'dual' stance and rhetoric on everything he can't make proper choices or do the right things.
The audacity of this guy grows and grows. But his decission process is just as bad.
How to avoid an appearnce of "inappropriate" candidate photo-op moments? Or accusations of pandering to the voters via the troops as backdrop?
Well, doh-ing- you go see and talk privately to the troops who have sacraficed for this country, as a world citizen or as A US Senator, and you leave your press mob behind.
I mean after all Obama worked out a way to meet 2 months ago /privately/ with Imam Qazwini, who supports Palestinian homicide bombings, HAMAS, and Hezbollah.
Now that's appropreate respect?
Apparently if Obama, who had time to shoot some hoops, can't get some photos and make a speech then he just doesn't have time for the wounded warriors; or the guy just can't make appropreate decissions.
BTW, have you ever seen Obama pass out US flags here at home? I've only seen them once in his crowds.
Setting aside his speech for redistribution of global wealth, shared sacrafice, barely resisting denigrating imperfect America as usual, and openly running for president of a marxist world...
Obama's non-campaign pandering for approval of most Europeans who want a European Socialist President, and dislike the United States immensely, and then disrespecting our troops by saying he didn't want the appearance of 'pandering' while campaigning is utter nonsense.
So in the entire trip the one moment in time that a clear Obama picture of what part of it was actual "campaigning" was defined at last in not visiting America's wounded troops.
Obama has no business being their Commander in Chief.
Now we are hearing 2 days later (On CNN no less!!) that when Obama heard there would be NO CAMERAS allowed, nor his CAMPAIGN STAFF, it is Then that he decided to call off the trip to see the troops even though he was approved to go as A U.S. Senator, with any Senatorial staff.
The Pentagon did not deny Obama access to the troops as Obama's third or fourth bumbling excuse has tried to portray.
In addition letters from soldiers are drifting in claiming that Obama made no efforts to talk with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan either - one such letter here: Victory comes from winning, not from "change."
So there you go. Now the dizzy back and forth - is campaigning- is not campaigning - makes perfect sense now. He didn't go to the scheduled trip to visit the wounded troops because the cameras wouldn't be on him.
This Obama is dispicable.

Obama: “There is no military solution to Iraq
No military solution to Iraq- but there is a military solution in Afghanistan?
Politicians, I swear.
You know, only 36 hours InCountry and this guy is already a military expert!
Obama: "The same factors that led me to oppose the surge still hold true."
We'll never know what would have happened if they had followed my plan of no surge...
Yeah, and if only I would have drove the truck, instead walking, I might have had the card with I-18 on it in last weeks BINGO game! I'm gettin' rid of my legs.
This is the guy who says Iran is just some insignificant puny non dangerous piss-ant insect of a country.
But hold on cause you knew it was coming. Then sometime between Perrier and waffels he 'changes' his Iran rhetoric to:
"the danger from Iran is grave...and my goal will be to eliminate this threat."
The Iran change-up must have been driven by some "are you kidding me?" poll that came out that hadn't been stuffed by Obama phone banks.
It's not hard to tell if he is for something before he is against it, or vice versa.
But the Media let's him slide.
He simply has to come out with, "I never said that...what I said is..."
Generaly there is such a blatant contrast between what he had said, and -re-said, that you have to sit there with your jaw on the floor sayin', HUH?
Of course then all these redactions gets buried by the Media's Harry meets Sally tingle running up their legs, and people don't get to see the three sides of Obama before we are off to something new. Or revised.
It's impossible to keep up with the 'changes'... just yesterday he was a member of the Senate Banking Committee ...Nooooooooooope.
nOW Here's the Obama surge irony:
Obama will still tell you that the military surge didn't work in Iraq, even though violence is down, but at the same time he is telling you that what Afghanistan needs is more military because violence is up.
Of course Obama knows what would happen if they follow a plan of implementing a 'surge' in Afghanistan by using Iraq's military progress as the model.
Therefore, the "surge" must have worked, or else he is touting sending troops to Afghanistan for what reason?
From what I have read Obama does not make decisions from facts on the ground, and therefore does not allow for choices in the best interest of the United States.
He's made statements that he must take into account what is politicaly best suited on a global basis. (refind exact words)
My feelings about the corrupt and useless United Nations and what they think is best for Our Country is another whole EF-few write-up.
Obama doesn't give a rats behind what the facts on the ground are in Iraq or what the military experts tell him. Iraq is unpopular politicaly, Afghanistan is supported, so he plays on that base to get himself votes.
The facts that should concern Obama:
Whatever it takes to make Iraq safer makes the U.S. safer.
A successful non-chaotic Iraq is in the best interest of the United States.
Preserve freedom that allowed for those that held up those Purple Fingers.
Acknowlege the honorable troops on the ground as the providers of success & safety.
The facts that actually concern Obama:
Making decisions on what is in the best successful self-interests of Obama.
He has even Removed his previous "surge" won't work comments from his website.
This is still on the surge page though -"Judgment You Can Trust."-
The one thing you can count on is Obama's character.
Should Afghanistan, Israel, or even puppies become unpopular he'll abandon it like a hot potato(e).
Hopefully, we'll never know what would have happened in our own country if Obama had been voted in as Commander and Chief.

So lets touch on a little bit o' Barry history as an Obama patriotic-pattern still being ignored.
Obama voted against "The Flag Protection Amendment". An Amendment protecting our Nations Flag from being desecrated.
Barack Obama calls flag pins “a substitute for true patriotism.”
Obama says, "I don’t mind people wearing pins or putting stickers on their cars as a show of support for their country or their cause" states Obama. "I am, however, irritated by the notion that so doing makes them somehow superior to those who don’t."
..."or their cause...?
It's so nice of Obama to not mind people actually showing support for their country...and the country's causes. But what irritates me, is the notion that Senator Obama doesn't seem to understand that The symbol of the USA, it's pins, stickers and Flag, does not make people feel superior.
Mr. Obama --- it makes them feel "PROUD!"
This is something this Obama doesn't seem to understand.
He sure set his notion of "clingin' to" stubborn principles aside and began sticking that ole flag pin on when it became beyond clear that not wearing a flag pin was hurting his image though, didn't he.
This, "I don't have too, you can't make me!" stubborn childish attitude is a learning curve we just don't need.
You won't find an American Flag anywhere around Obama in most of his appearances.
Oh, I don't mean in his speech's when he's getting himself cleaned up from some unAmerican episodic bama-gaff.
You certainly won't find more than a couple at his website by a poster here or there.
Obama's newest irritating notion of respect for our country's flag symbol was to have Our Flag removed from his plane's tail section and replace it with his own Obamanism symbol before flying over to Europe and the Middle -East.
Why is it that Senator Obama doesn't understand that removing our Country's flag, with the notion that his own cause and symbol "sticker" is superior to our Homelands, is not a substitute for true patriotism, but an irritating Lack of support for our Country's ideals and causes. Especially when he is flying over to other country's in which he states he is going "as a US Senator" in an apparent campaign boosting guise of representing us.
The picture I get is:
I come to you not as a representative of the United States but as a Candidate who removed It's symbol to represent myself. Me before Country.
I have replaced Old Glory with the New Glory of "O".
My fellow bamboozeled tax paying American citizens are paying for this Circus for me as a Senator and Not as a campaigner - I tell you they'll fall for anything! Just look at my refurbished plane again in which my campaign info is plastered all over it if you don't believe me. I am not campaigning! Read my lips. This is not about me- it's about you!
I'm on a fact finding mission and had hoped to find some answers to world wide problems at the Brandenburg Gate.
Saturday, July 19, 2008
Senator Obama, who has stated he would meet anytime and anywhere in TownHall meetings with Senator John Mccain, has been ducking every TownHall meeting invitation.
Invitation, hell. He's been offered any date he has open and he runs away like he has a hot meeting with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who he's willing to meet anytime anywhere with no preconditions.
What is it Senator Obama is afraid that he may be asked in Fort Hood, by a military crowd, in an unstructured interview by ordinary folk instead of by his biased obama-luvin' media pals?
Apparently Obama just won't agree to meet with our Country's military patriots without preconditions.
He may be afraid that his cloaking device will be unplugged now that he has so many unanswered "issues" about his character and honesty and flipflopping to answer too.
I have a few ideas about what Military questions might be presented to Obama he is hiding from, but perhaps another platform of Townhall meetings Obama wants to avoid might go something like this: satire?
Questioner: Did you say in 2004 that you did not have the experience to run for President in 2008?
Obama: Well let me make it perfectly clear what I had been consistently consistent in saying back then - was I , um, what was the question? In which year?
Q: Senator, when asked if your intent was to serve out the six year senate term or make a run for the presidency you said it was a 'silly question" and that "I’ve never worked in Washington, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I’m the best possible senator on behalf of the people of Illinois."
Obama: Well I may have said, " Ah-ah-mumble-mumble, there's a presidential election in four years. I'm not running for president in four years." But, mumble-mumble, things on the ground have 'changed'. I am the one we have been waiting for. I am the Hope. I am Historical. But, listen, I have been consistent in saying that this election is not about me - it's about you! My wife would tell you, if you can't vote for me - then uh,um, you must be a ramumblecist.
Q: Well with little over one year as Senator, in which your voting record is pretty much non commital, and 2 years running a campaign, can you say your experience in having still never worked in Washington has changed?
Obama: I can unequivocally say this is a hard job. You see my hair turning gray? The people of Illinois understand I am doing this for them. It's been a long campaign with loads of experience. After Iowa it was on to the world! Don't you realize who you are talking too? "Generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment" -- when, among other wonders, "the rise of the oceans began to slow!!" The people of Illinois understand this.
Q: But you haven't even shown up for votes - you voted "present" 130 times when you were there - the people you represent
Obama: We don't need people - we just need the checks!
We have another question for Senator Obama from this nice lady from Georgia.
Obama: Hold on a minute, sweety! I'd like to go back and make it consistently clear that many times you don't vote Yes or No in Illinois. It's not the way it's done there.
Q:Isn't this a stradegy to avoid any future politically controversial yes or no votes that you can be held to answer to?
Obama: ? Where you been? I already consistently said that I would not be running for president during those votes. My motives were pure! You don't believe me? Read my follow up politics in my second Book, the Audacity of trying to cover up the racism in my first Book.
Now there was a time when I hadn't looked far enough ahead beyond local Chicago politics. I grimaced re-reading it and had it changed on re-editions.
Besides, read the News, I don't have to answer to anything or anyone. All I have to do is show up. Present! The important vote is your vote for me. Be present!
We want you children to grab an adult and drag them alive or dead into the voting booth. Paint them a picture. Write them a story.
Go to my website, where peoples of all religions, race, creed, nationality, group, old, young, Women, terrorist sympathizers and radical politics are divided up into a convienent welcome format for you to Unite into your own separate American sections.
The USA is the Greatest Country in the World!! The Time to change it is Now!
YES we Can! Yes we Can!
Well, I'm not sure you clarified why you have so many "present" votes with that, but let's get back to this questioner Senator.
Q: Why do you have a forged Birth Certificate on your website?
Obama: You see this is what I get. It's a certificate of Live Birth. C.O.L.B.
Michelle has told you - "America is ignorant".
But people insist on mislabeling it as a birth certificate. My staff has to send out millions of emails categoricaly denying any presence of a false Birth Certificate on my website. What I will refuse to do, is that, um, ah, that somehow, is to allow my words to be questioned. There is no such thing there.
Q: But, Senator aren't you just playing word games here? The question is -
Obama: Words matter!!
Q - weather you -
Obama: Don't tell me words don't matter! We are the change that we seek! You people must not be listening to me!
Q: - you have a forged state document on your web site?
Obama; It's a non-issue. You see me? I was born. I am here. I'm right here. Why am I getting all the tough questions? I no longer need to be vetted. I'm the nominee. Don't vote against me because of who I am -- and I know you won't. I lowered the oceans!
Q: You certainly have a gift for redirecting. Let me try this. There doesn't seem to be any Hospital records of your birth - why don't you produce a true Birth Certificate and quell all these questions about -
Obama: Well, you know, I've been in favor of that from the start but I won't be questioned on this. People should do their jobs and not spread mis-information. It doesn't matter what I said or did 10 years ago- what matters is what I can do for you for the next 10 years. I'm going to demand hard work from you all and -
Q: So you won't answer the question?
Obama: Well, as I've said all along, I've been quite consistent in answering your questions.
Q:ok, well, lets move on. In your Book "Dreams from My father" did you, or did you not, say in it that you made faces at the teacher while studying in your Koranic classes?
Obama: You know this has all been hashed and rehashed. I have instituted a Goon-squad to infiltrate the net to wipe out these lies by liars. My FighttheFears website unequivocally has straightened out the truth. People believe I was sworn in on a Koran - that wasn't me -talk to Keith!
Q: Did you, or did you not, say in your autobiography that you made faces at the teacher while studying in your Koranic classes?
Obama: What part of avoiding your question with a straight answer confused you?
I've been very clear that the American people want to stay on the issues...I'd like to ask Senator McCain a question...can someone pleeeeeeeeeease wake him up?
Q: But Senator, certainly it would be an 'issue' to the American people if you have been untruthful about...
Obama: You see this is why I have resisted these Town hall style of meetings. The internet has provided so much background on me that it's hard to keep up- I can be asked some of the most racist hateful things and expected to come up with an answer without a Teleprompter. Is this any way to run a clean campaign?
Q: You haven't answered the question - let me ask you another one- isn't "HUSSEIN" a Muslim name straight from the Koran?
Obama: We don't speak of my middle name- it's racist and divisive.
Q: The fact that you have an Arab name is racist?
Obama: And funny.
Q: Well what I am tryin to get to here is
Obama: I have repeatedly said that Hussein is Hebrew for 'blessed'...
Q: Well that's what you said to a jewish group - but then you told a black group that it was swahiili...Hussein actually comes out of the Koran as does Barack,...Obama is also Arabic.
Obama: semantics. anti-semantics. As my website states it is 'vile' to keep accussing me of being Muslim. There's nothing wrong with being a muslim unless you aren't one. What we need here is a health care system that will cover the world. I have a plan. No one will be left behind. Corporations can afford it. My Global Welfare Act will revolutionize! We are our brother's keeper. Individualism is selfish. Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.
Tax payers can turn their air conditioners down. Ride a bike. You waste my time when you distract from the issues. Did I tell you that the Republicans will try to tell you that I am a scary guy with a funny name.
Q: Let's try to get back to...listen, You are running as America's first Black President but aren't you actually an Arab-American, or Kenyan-American?
Obama: Why do you people do this? My mother was white, my granfather fought in WW11, although a bit murky as to details and funny looking documents on my website, I was allegedly born sometime,somewhere, in Hawaii. I watched astronuats come ashore. I am American. There is No Black or white America. John Mccain is a good American, an honorable man, Hillary is likeable enough. Don't vote for either one because they aren't the one we've been waiting for. Arabs are good people but gasoline prices are up and my foriegn over-seas paypal donations are way down ...How could I not be black enough when 92% of blacks voted for me because of my race? I am historical!! Have I mentioned the Republicans will say I'm black?
Q: Senator, we'll get to that. But, by being born Muslim, of your fathers bloodline, and later becoming unapologicticaly christian aren't you now considered to be an apostate? A death sentence in the Arab islamic World? Couldn't this present a problem -
Obama: Look, I have consistently said my father was a non practicing Muslim goat herder who abandoned his family for another white woman and became a disallussioned drunken victim of European politics. The bloodline thing is a bit murky too, which is why I rethought my no preconditions statements after having my Christianity questioned - we'll have to come to some security understandings before I sit down to negotiate America's surrender.
Obama: Where are my spokespersons? They will clear this up tommorrow. ah, um, uh, Islam means 'surrender'- I was probably thinking about that out loud. Yeah, that will work. I misthought. Misssspoke. You know next week I will remind you that I never said that. Everytime you people do this I have to come up with a new speech. Anyone have a smoke??
Q: Senator. What the people care about is that you have LIED about your ties to Islam. Many of your asscoiates and donors are tied to Islam. Several of the Boards you sat on funded terrorist groups. Why have you stated consistently that you are not Muslim and have never been Muslim when you state in your autobiography that you went to a muslim school and studied your koranic verses?
Obama: Distractions. You think that if you keep repeating it then people will believe it. I can do that too! I have repeatedly said that I am unapologetically Christian. I have always been Christian. We need to reach across the asile and bring all of the religions together. We can demand a lot more entitlments that way when churchs find common ground and set aside minor differences. Power to the people! Have I told you lately that I'm Christian? I can give you a few versus from Sermon on the Mount if you are a disbeliever.
Q: So you are not going to admit that you wrote that you had Muslim schooling in your Book? That you wrote that Malcom-X offered the only path to black nationalism that was different? That your church gave a Man of the Year Award to anti-semite, Louis Farrakah, the Nation of Islam racist leader?
Obama: That's the type of politics we are trying to get away from. You can't judge a man by the characters around him. I'm around Republicans everyday. I'm even friendly with one or two. It doesn't mean I agree with them. Some of them are not even the Republicans I used to know. I'm Christian.
Q: Well I guess that brings us to a questioner who wants to know how you could deny knowing what was going on in this Black Liberation racist church that you attended for 20 years?
Obama: It wasn't racist on the days I attended.
Q: So, it was, basicaly, only racist on the days that you didn't attend?
Obama: I didn't say that.
Q: Well, how could you not know? You eventually had to quit the church and -
Obama: People were calling sick people...the church was being harrassed. I didn't disown the church I saved it from distraction.
Q: So it was important to you that this racist theology continue on it's merry way and stop being exposed and harrassed? Senator you took your children to this biggoted madrassa styled congregation. What does that say to your judgment? To your moral credentials? More generations of people, cheering and applauding, while being taught to hate doesn't sound Christian to me.
Obama: Blacks are understandably angry. I'm a Christian. Whites
are feel guilty. You sound bitter. I know a good pastor who will be available on November 5th you could talk to. I am Chrisitian.
Q: With a Funny name.
Obama: Have you mentioned that I'm Black?
Obama: That's racist.
Q: I'm racists?
Obama: You said it not me!
Q: Senator, senator, how can a church that believes in the destruction of the so called white enemy and the white mans god be considered christian?
Obama: It was not like that when I showed up. I repeatedly denied ever hearing such divisive talk from my pastor.
Q: Well actually didn't you confess just a few days later that you had lied about never hearing such -
Obama: I have consistently said that there might have been a few "controversial" things I might have heard. I never lie.
Q: Yes we have seen the type of controversial people you surround yourself with.
The list seems to grow daily.
Obama: Can we move on? People don't care about this. They want to know what they are going to do about gasoline in their SUV's and being able to cling to their 2nd amendment rights.
For the woman who wrote me and asked for a job because she couldn't afford to put her grandmother through High school any longer. These are the people who tell my stories- sing my songs.
Remind me to send her a raffel ticket for my Coronation in the Grand Coliseum.
I am the fierce urgency of now.
"Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet "
Ah, now that's just the prettiest sound on earth at sunset. Don't you think?
Where were we?
Oh, yes, I am the Dream!
Q: Ok, What is your position on Israel?
Obama: What day is it?
Obama: I'll have to have someone check my schedule. It depends on who I am addressing today. It could be that Israel is likable enough and will have Jerusalem as it's undivided Capital. I say so. That's it. No more questions!
On the other hand tommorrow after I think about it and if Palestinians and American Arabs object after hearing something like this, then the alternative is for the parties to get together and have disscussions.
Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.
I have been consistent in my stance that as president eveything will change. We will conversate. This moment in time is the world in which Hope will bring people together from all sides without conditions and greed. We can't have barbed wire running through Jerusalem and dividing it. That's what I meant! Yeah, that'll work.
Q:HUH? Senator, have discussions?
Isn't that what every administration has tried to have these two peoples do for decades -
Obama: and Change.
Q: Change? But, if neither side will
Obama: and Progress!
Q: Senator should Israel give up it's nukes?
Obama: I think Countries should lead by example. It's leaders should lead by example. That's why in my first term as president I will eliminate all US nukes, I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will slow our development of future combat systems, trim down the military, bring home billions of monthly Iraqi dollars needed for my entitlement programs. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept. I don't posture on defense policy and I don't take money from federal lobbyists for powerful defense contractors. As president, my sole priority for defense spending will be protecting the American people. I will institute a civilian national security force! I believe in a nuke free world in which, although we may be the only ones without them, it will make us safer in the long run.
Q: How so? What sort of deterents to agressiveness, and threats of annialation, will you have by making this Country's military and defense systems weaker?
Obama: The weak are victims. When we appear to be victims we can demand justice. If we appear not to be so arrogant and mighty we can kneel down and talk. The strong always negotiate to retain their power base. Make them feel guilty! The weak regain power from the bottom up. We must negotiate. Teach them empathy! That's Progress!
Q: Haven't we all been talking for 30-40 years? What good has talk done? Only sanctions and Time has forced small degress of --
Obama: The TIME is Now! We can to seize the moment! We will topple the conservative enemy's of Mohammeds peaceful religion by finding out what they want and help provide for a fair distribution of services, opportunities and employment.
Islam's suffering poverty and ignorance, and helplessness has caused these people to act out of despair! Religion has nothing to do with the Muslim violence!!
We must make Islam dependent upon us. Take away their will. Litigate! Overwhelm them with complaints. Demand compassion! Organize!
Q: But Senator these aren't reasonable nor logical people we are talking about. They want to annihilate Israel, to wipe out the Great Satan.
They want the entire world under Shirah law through a Caliphate conquest. They have been in a cultural war with each other, Sunni vs Shia, for 1400 years. What makes you think you can 'talk' to people like this that blow up bus loads of their own children and Love death more than we love life?
Obama: It's time for 'change'. People understand 'change'. And Hope.
We need to go to a commercial break...feel free to send in your questions and comments for Senator Obama...
