    AMERICANS WANT “ELECTED” — NOT “SELECTED”. WE NEED TO REPLACE THOSE DEMS IN CONGRESS WHO DID NOT LISTEN TO US.

    I do not understand why all the pundits are so certain that Clinton supporters will fall in line and support Obama. We have been told for months now that he would be the candidate and still not voted for him.

    You need to understand that a we have gotten to know him, we have found little to like and less to trust.

    In my opinion McCain has at least earned our trust, he also has been around long enough for us to know who he really is.

    Thus far we have heard from Obama that he didn’t know about the church, then that he did but that it was not representative of the church.

    Then he spoke out against Reverend Wright when Wright went public, but still supported the church.

    Finally a guest priest speaks to a rollicking crowd saying hateful racist comments and Obama finally quits the church.

    Still he claims to beleive that is what many churches are like.

    The guy does not have a clue OR he is still lying. A candidate with poor judgment does not belong in our white house.

    He is wrong on the church.

    His lies have set the Civil Rights Movement back in time. Martin Luther King marched and died for the equality of ALL people. Read Obama’s book! He is a racist, anti-American.

    He is wrong on foreign policy and he is also wrong on the war.

    I do not think we did the right thing by going into Iraq, but now that we have broken it, it is our job to help the people of that country get to where they can fix it and run it on their own.

    I do not agree with him on medical insurance, universal for kids, but once they are adults it is every man for himself.

    I will vote for the devil I know and not the one that is slowly being revealed to be the real racist in the room.

    OBAMA IS A DANGEROUS MAN — HIS ENTIRE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN BASED ON LIES! — DON’T FORGET 9/11.

    McCAIN 2008 — HILLARY 2012.
