After watching the superb speech Obama made before a huge crowd in Berlin I was thinking how different things are now. Can anyone imagine George Bush speaking before 100,000+ Germans? Instead of applause the police would be trying to keep the people from trying to kill Bush.

Bush has never been received well for many reasons. In-fact, Bush is hated as much as Obama is loved. What a remarkable turn of events. There is a God!

This is just my opinion only, but Obama is way over rated. McCain is no better. And I personally won't be voting for either just to pick the "lesser of two evils."

Obama is a slick operator. He tells people what they want to hear right now b/c most Americans are absolutely sick of all that the Bush Admin. stands for (and the boot stamp of the Bush Admin will be painfully felt for years to come unless their so-called bills that were passed into law without public debate or vote are reversed or overthrown.)

Both are puppets. Whoever gets into office will NOT be the President you hoped for and once again, you'll feel deceived.

The national election is rigged. Diebold runs the machines and b/c they own the copyright, people can't request proof that their votes mean anything or counted.

We all need to get our heads out of the sand and out of our rear ends and start taking our country back instead of following the status quo or being good little sheep and taking orders without question.

Sorry .. as unpopular as my view may be and as much as many people may disagree, it is, to me, the reality of our country. Too many of us are content in our little boxes and counting on our government, the military, or some sort of checks & balances or oversight committee to prevent things like this from happening. But it's not, it hasn't for a long time, and it will continue to be that way until more voices are heard across the country that rise up from a whisper to an overwhelming shout of protest.

In general, people like leaders more when they're doing a good job leading.

Which is why character slander is such a great tactic these days right? Because people really spend the time going over the issues. I mean, people don't sit in front of the idiot tube and sucker in all the claims and then emotionally conclude results based on what sally said about billy, and like billy is so cool, how could he be wrong? Like ya know?

I think it's a good thing that the US establish an atmosphere of trust with other countries, you dont think so? If Obama's not elected, it's great and historic that he had the opportunity to make that speech and the ideals he set forth are things I would hope the rest of the world will try to hold McCain to. Or at least remind him that they were articulated. And cheered.

Let me guess, it was a message of Hope! And change? We can't forget change, because we need to hope for change, because when we have change, it will be a change for good, a change that meets its change with such hope that will bring hopeful change and we can all join hands and hope we change towards something hopeful and be happy about our change for the hope of future change! Wow, I hope I wasn't too hopeful, I would hate to change the feelings of hope for others. We all need to hope that we change, because change is good for hope!

OBAMA 2008!

I hope you didnt take too much time out of your life to type all that because on your deathbed you'll wish you'd been doing something else. Romping with bunnies in a golden field, maybe, or nursing a family of sick squirrels back to health.

Do you disagree with the keynotes of that speech? What did he say that was contrary to US interests?
