Ah, a Swiftboat Socialist.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

The bottom line about Obama is he really is bringing hope to allot of American Voters who other wise would not have seen it in other candidates running. I think allot of people feel like they are tired of the lies, rip offs and faulty people in power. Look at just the past 5 years alone. We have to live through this. So yeah, if he is selling hope, then I'll buy it. It could have been any candidate of any race which brings hope to the table. He just sells it better then others. The #'s don't lie, so just because he's African American people are hopping all over the race thing. My opinion is stop bullshiting and get off of it. Focus more so on the change our votes will bring rather then a front runner being an African American. I f he was of any other race and sold hope as well I would buy it.

We have a chance to change things, maybe salvage the economy, close the gap in international relations, do something about our shitty ass health care system, and retirement system. if elected he will not be the only one accountable for America's success in the next 5 years. Its truly gonna take all branches of Government and State to put the bullshit aside and fix what others couldn't.

If you really think that Obama is less corrupt than any other politician out there you are in for a huge surprise.

You are asking to be like all the Brizlians who thought that Lula was going to be different then were suddenly surprised it was more of the same.

Obama is doing a great job preaching to the masses of sheep in this country and they are eating it up. Just like lambs being taken to slaughter. Always smart to fatten them up and make them feel good prior to bleeding them dry.

Hope is for pussies. Fear is for brain dead zombies. Reality is for fun. Sleep is for morning masturbation. Questions?

I think we could easily get by with just a vice president, or maybe just a viceroy
