Default Barack Obama! WE BELIEVE!

But what do we believe in????

The Ridiculousness & Danger That Is Obama '08

We believe Barack can win again because Barack is all about winning! We are Barack and Barack is us! We are superior because we believe that we are the best! We can do nothing wrong because we are incredibly perfect in what we do! We believe!

Who needs experience and good answers on questions of issues? Not us, because WE BELIEVE! Hope is out there and tomorrow is a new day! And WE BELIEVE that we can have everything in the new day! We can rise up against those who say we can't have it all AND WE CAN HAVE IT ALL BECAUSE WE BELIEVE!

Can we have it all?

YES WE CAN!

Can we all flip houses and make a million dollars on each house?!

YES WE CAN! BECAUSE WE BELIEVE!

Can we all become concert pianists?!

YES WE CAN! BECAUSE WE BELIEVE!

Can we sell crystal meth in our neighborhoods and then get off with a rehab plan?

YES WE CAN! BECAUSE WE BELIEVE!

Can we buy houses that we can't afford and then let the government bail us out?

YES WE CAN! BECAUSE WE BELIEVE!

As illegal aliens, can we get driver's licenses?

YES WE CAN! BECAUSE WE BELIEVE!

Because we have the audacity to HOPE for CHANGE, WE can AFFECT CHANGE in our neighborhoods and TOWNS! WE ARE WE AND WE ARE ONE!

WOOHOO!!!

Lightbulb OK, I get it...

You're an Obama-basher.

For any of you who want an updated opinion from David sirota, the author of the editorial in UB50's link, you can find it here:

"Hillary Clinton thinks Iowans are stupid - very stupid. Here's what I'm talking about."

David Sirota: Hillary Clinton Thinks Iowans Are Stupid - Politics on The Huffington Post


Poor Hillary finished third in that stupid Iowa caucus.

You notice though, everytime she loses at something, she tweaks what she is doing. She's learning when she loses. This is actually a good thing. She can't win them all but she doesn't get disillusioned when she loses and she continues to try and make things better. I like that about her.

You should get a job writing info-mercials!!!!

I get your point.

My support for Barack Obama is because:

1. He is intelligent
2. He is a public servant
3. He is a great organizer/motivator
4. He proved the first three with his academic achievements and his decision to work as a community organizer for much less pay...for more than 3 years...and he got a lot done.
5. Yes, he inspires. For a president to get anything accomplished he has to be able to inspire and motivate...what is negative about that? He has also proven that he is good at finding common ground and enabling people to work together who might otherwise not be able to get over their "animosity."

Also- I am NOT pro-abortion, but I am 100% pro-choice, I am for more strict gun control laws, I am for strengthening our border and reforming immigration, I think illegal immigrants STINK (my husband went the legal route...lots of money and time and bullsh*t) but I also think deporting en masse is impractical - so I am for Obama's approach: crack down on employers to where it is devastating for them to hire illegals, have illegals pay a BIG FEE, have them learn English (as an aside...English should be made the OFFICIAL language of The United States), I think the middle class pays too much tax - the top % pays far too little, college must be made affordable (my husband is European - weird to him that almost all US students have to take out costly loans just to get a good-paying job), I support Obama's position that we should use diplomacy first...listening to what other country leaders have to say is NOT being a wimp or debasing the US presidency in any way, and Barack Obama had the wisdom and intelligence to realize from the beginning that the USA had NO business getting into a war in Iraq. I trust him to THINK before doing.

Very poor attempt at starting a flamewar with Obama supporters. Talk about "ridiculousness"!
