That's the sleazy spin factor from Roger Ailes to Lee Atwater to Karl Rove and so on..........

I'm hardly a freak, I post on City-Data all the time. I am not the only one that feels as I do. He will certainly not win the state of TN. Even Gore whose home is Nashville, lost his home state.
What makes you right and me wrong? Do a google search and you will see it has been questioned by many about his heritage. Now---I'm a freak for expressing my opinion. I thought we had Freedom of Speech in the US .

He's not?

Do YOU live in a 1.6 million dollar home?

Do you have a starving half-brother?

Do you tell other people who have less than you how you will "save" them b/c they aren't smart enough to save themselves?

No, not an elitist. Living in La-la land at best. Look what happened to Kirkpatrick...whom Obama supported tooth and nail. You probably have no clue until you google what I'm referring to.

Here's the thing...you can vote on a wing and a prayer. Heck you can post ridiculous opinions that have no foundation in fact OR fiction, which others here seem to do every day and all day long...do your due diligence. This POTUS race has nothing to do with the past, everything to do with the immediate and short-term future. If you vote for Obama b/c he's black and you're black, then you are nothing better than a sheep. Same in reverse.


Do your research. Others do not and it's eeeeping obvious.

I don't get the "born again of course" part.

Having lived in in other parts of the US, I've known many that have used that phrase when speaking of their spiritual beliefs. None bore any animus towards blacks.

Good God.

I'm not supporting him- I'm not sure yet but it pains me to hear another sheeple fall prey to the bogus culture war and the lame propaganda that goes with it.

Obama is mixed and was raised in a home w/o a Black parent so yes- I'm sure it's no problem. Oh please, can someone get a clue?

I think McCain is actually throwing the election. I have no idea why. His choice is just an obvious mistake. Too obvious. Why would anyone throw it away like that? Unless he is just a puppet with handlers pulling the strings.
That's what I used to think Obama was. I am now officially at a loss.

Sorry Doc - didn't mean to offend... what I meant was, it seems to be the ones who just found Jesus - Born Again Christians who sometimes tend to misunderstand or misinterpret the bible and use their translation to justify "hatred" for those who are different from them. Not all Christians are bad people
