Exclamation Hamas, the terrorist group, OPENLY ENDORSED Obama!

Hamas, the terrorist group, OPENLY ENDORSED Obama!

Here is the article (McCain actually asks the same question):

McCain Takes Shot at Obama for Hamas Support - America’s Election HQ


My question is: WHY WOULD A TERRORIST GROUP WANT OBAMA AS PRESIDENT? WEAKNESS? SYMPATHY? IS THERE SOMETHING WE DON'T (YET) KNOW ABOUT MR. OBAMA??

Hamas is smart enough to know that such a thing would hurt Obama and help McCain so if they did it, it should be obvious as to why.

Well..that's some tortured logic you are dishing up there to come up with some plausible excuse why Obama is the terrorists' choice.

This should do him worlds of good.

Love, love, love it.

they have no reason to exist if they speak to Obama, but military action against McCrazy gives them reasons for existing

This is just a small tidbit of what is to come if Obama is nominated... the Republicans will destroy him in a NY minute... actually he has already been destroyed by his associations and his own words/actions. Obama is fast becoming an "untouchable".

why is this a issue? Hamas doesn't vote in America. I guess idiots are swayed by what terrorists groups endorse ala the Bin Laden message prior to the 2004 election.

Don't vote for Obama because some overseas terrorist group endorsed him! What do terrorists want? A non stop war against Islam from the US because it serves their purpose.

Hamas experienced wild success during the Bush administration, where they are now the official governing party in control of Palestine. Of course they'd like to see 4 more years of the policies that helped propel them to power.

They aren't stupid. Our broadcasts don't stop at the coasts. They know how our national dialogue goes, and how poorly they are perceived here. So of course, if they'd like to see the backwards policies that proved so vital to their success the past 7 years continued, they would have to endorse McCain's opponent in order to get McCain. And so it's not at all surprising that they choose right wing nutcase outlet WorldNetDaily to deliver this scoop. That would be like the KKK choosing The Nation to deliver its stirring endorsement of John McCain.

And McCain stepped on up and delivered, as stated in the article, "He called Obama’s foreign policy a “radical departure” from current standards of dealing with “rogue regimes.”

Let's think about the results from these 'current standards' of dealing with rogue regimes. North Korea gained nuclear weapons. Iraq is in civil war, but is controlled by a party aligned with Iran and fighting a sect aligned with Iran. Hamas won outright control of Palestine's government in 2006. The Taliban has regained significant power in Afghanistan, while McCain and Bush poured our resources into the disastrous Iraqi war.

Quite a list of success McCain promises to continue in 08, if you consider the spread of influence of fundamentalist Islamic states success.

4 more years. Hamas knows what's up.

He's right. It makes perfect sense and its rather simple so dont pretend you dont understand just because you dislike obama.
