tough questions for Obama, my black friends are worried.

Tough questions for Barack Obama . Questions that I asked to my black friends but none of them wanted answer or to ask Barack on his website...nor were these questions brought up by the spin doctor question askers on any of his town hall meetings on TV and YouTube....

1. What exactly is your plan to do about our country's failing ability to secure and protect itself (airports, imaginary borders, etc...)

2. How do you plan to protect yourself from assasination attempts given the very real acts of racism and hate towards blacks still ever-present in America?

3. What exactly is your plan to bring our soldiers home?

4. Do you have a relationship(if any) with the current administration and it's participants that would allow for a smooth transition into office should you win the presidency?

there's lots more questions we sat around and pondered. I'll post more later.

these questions came up one night as we watched him speak but all he was doing was having a pep-rally and not addressing ANY of the issues that people brought up.

hello Barack, THIS IS NOT A GAME.

He's gotten this far playing dodgeball. You can't fault his strategy.

^^^^With those questions, they seem to have been formed by someone who is quite mature in age or for his age. Which is it?

As for what Obama will do with your questions probably ask one of Edwards people to give the answers once those 2 hoook up and go ahead to win this thing.........

Questions 1,3 & 4 are great ones that he will undoubtedly sidestep, as any good campaigning politician would do. However, question #2 should be an easy answer. He doesn't have to do a thing. That is entirely the responsibility of the Secret Service. There are going to be people/groups that want to assassinate a President for a myriad of reasons. Hate crimes would be one of them. The Secret Service has to protect against all of them.

Of course, the smart ass answer to #2 is "very simple, make Hillary Clinton my VP". Who would want to assassinate him then?

WTF you want from the guy, he is a politician, they all are. Exact answers lose votes, time has made that irrefutable. Your questions give your position away.

We are all above 26 yrs. old.


to Shane:


My position is to see ANY president with goals other than that of Bush. I don't drift to party lines. I follow the issues and whose got the nuts to get them taken care of..I just don't want the Black community to go into riot mode if this guy can't cover his ass if he is lucky enough to get in office..lucky is the key word here.

I don't think the "SS" is going to step up like they should. Remember they allowed Ronald Reagan to get hit up close and personal...almost ended his movie career early...lol

WTF makes you think they will go into riot mode? Is that all they know how to do in your estimation?

This is the dumbest statement I have seen in a long long time...

When has a president ever been able to cover his entire ass during his presidency???? The answer. NEVER -- IF he were to get into office it would be from the MAJORITY vote, and the Black American Community ISNT'T THE MAJORITY.
