You know, I'm going to try something crazy this election. Instead of basing my vote on some off-hand comment by the candidate's wife taken out of context, I'm going to look at issues like health care, the economy, the war, the mortgage crises, the environment and the deadlock in Congress.

When you start ranking issues of significance, a poorly worded phrase just doesn't seem that important to me.

I don't want to vote for the socialistic ideals the man has supported in the past. Heck, I've got ideas galore, but being idealistic while it leads us, must be supported by realistic which feeds us.

Nothing on the flier about that.
I'm guessing where getting hit hard with his propaganda is because we're close to Illinois.

All I know that with Hillary McBama we've got 3 very poor choices. It's a worst choices we've had since Carter and Ford.
Hey, I'm with you! Personally, I vote "NONE OF THE ABOVE!" I will probably vote third party this time!!

Whether or not you support him, that kind of thinking reflects very poorly on this state.
Why? arent you in Kentucky?

Just a warning. Try not to get too mad at them.....they have families to feed with their BS, I suppose....
Your statement was prophetic. They constantly made comments about how 75% of the state is uneducated whites and cited a very unscientific exit poll of 1000 people where roughly 21% admitted race was a factor in their voting decision. They even were talking about the contest on CNN and accidently said, "obama wins west virginia, er I mean Kentucky." So that shows what the media wants the country to think of these states. Did anyone watch Leno last night? I wonder what he said.

As far as Obama Its hard to even get to the color of his skin with the baggage he has dragged into the campaign, He sit 20 years and listened to hate spewing out of his pastor and never budged, do you really think none of this stuck in his brain of course it did and his wife was there with him so that makes it very simple to understand her statement about never being proud of her country until now (Because her husband is going to be in charge and now it will all be different for her people) thats all she has heard for 20 years and allowed this to be preached to their daughters...Obama and his pastor have an agenda and it isn't going to be nice. They are playing the game now but just wait!!!!!
