Bush's Third Term... * la Obambi



We're beginning to understand why Barack Obama keeps protesting so vigorously against the prospect of "George Bush's third term." Maybe he's worried that someone will notice that he's the candidate who's running for it.

Most Presidential candidates adapt their message after they win their party nomination, but Mr. Obama isn't merely "running to the center." He's fleeing from many of his primary positions so markedly and so rapidly that he's embracing a sizable chunk of President Bush's policy. Who would have thought that a Democrat would rehabilitate the much-maligned Bush agenda?

Hell. By November he will have moved to the Right of John McCain...

He is getting closer to earning my vote...

There are just a couple minor things standing in the way, like his inexperience and what appear to me to be his racist attitudes. But hey, if he keeps moving in the Right direction you never know... The inexperience thing, however, will be hard to overcome. That and the fact I suspect he is lying through his teeth just to get my vote!

Well yeah, there is that.... But hell, Bush did the same thing with his promises of no nation building and an adherence to the tenets of conservatism.

But what the hey! He is, after all, a typical politician... We have to give a little room for exaggeration don't we?
