    If Hillary would be President this country would be so much better right now.
    But do remember, Bush put this country in the position it is in now, for a man who
    said he loved America, how could he and his vice pres. destroy it. I worked for Hillary
    and watched her stand in the pouring rains of Pittsburgh while the men stood under
    roofs or what ever they could. She stood out in the rain with all of the men and women of Pittsburgh and never missed a beat with the rain just pouring down her face. That's the kind of leader I would like to see be President of the United States, a person who is just like all the other Americans..................
    From a proud American just lucky enough to have just know and helped Hillary!

    It is very unfortunate that Obama's campaign had to resort to illegal manipulation to try to obtain POWER at any price.
    Apparently, Obama thinks that THE MEANS JUSTIFIES THE END. Obama is a bright lawyer that knows to manipulate with rhetoric and twist the legal system to gain unfair advantage. Remember the case of O. J. , where legal manipulation helped keep him avoid execution. Similarly, Obama snatched from Hillary the Presidential nomination, because his humongous ambition could not wait 4 or 8 yrs.
    Obama connections were important at one time for him, now he pretends to buries them alive.
    WE NEED TO HAVE THEM PRESENTED BEFORE WE VOTE HIM INTO THE HIGHEST and POWERFUL POSITION ON EARTH. It is imperative that we serious scrutinize his past:
    1 Obama's friendship with the University of Illinois Professors Ayers is a convicted terrorist bomber. Obama had his first meeting to lunch his Illinois Senate career in the living room of Ayers. Obama worked with Ayers for many years as profesors at the University of Illinois.

    2. Obama's friendship with convicted Tony Rezko for was convicted in June of scheming to use his clout with the Blagojevich administration to squeeze $7 million in kickbacks out of a contractor and seven money management firms seeking to do business with the state of Illinois. Also, he sold a mansion to Obama for $1.4 million. Additionally, Tony Rezko's wife sold him more land to increase the size of his back yard. Rezco raised a very large sum of contributions for Obama's election.
    3. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who is a racist that openly dammed America, was like an uncle for Obama--being his mentor for 20 years.

    4. Obamas is the former lawyer of ACORN--The Association of Community Organizers in Illinois. The Obama Campaign contributed $380,000 to ACORN. Obama himself donated another big sum. [The filthy voter fraud scandal of ACORN in recent news is cause for yet even more suspicion of Obama's associations and his ideologies.]

    If Barrack Obama was a women would I consider him as a vital candidate, NO. - If McCain was a women running for president, Definitely NO!
    - But Hillary Clinton, Definitely YES! She is the only one of these guys that can talk about the issues the others aren't and fix these problems. Write in for Hillary the real candidate for the job not a media diva or a ex-war wager but a candidate for the people.

    Obama - identifies his nationality and allegience to AFRICA
    Obama - close connection with a religion - that is also associated with

    Obama - non-military man who wants to become-Commander in Chief
    Obama - also claims to be black - but is bi-racial
    Obama - no business expierence, but yet will be Chief over many US
    Federally owned corporations.
    Obama - inspires change of ONEness, but record proves separates by
    allegience to certain races & social status first, all others second.
    Obama - no substainal Washington DC experience
    Obama - no substainal foreign experience.
    Obama - claims to have learned “responsibility” from his grandparents,
    but as a leader, wants to “GIVE” to those who don’t asume
    responsibility for their own hopes, desires, dreams & decisions.
    Obama - dedicated leader in his community with black folks, and some-
    how believes that qualifies him to lead the majority of whites.
    Obama - is willing to have “TALKS” with Castro #2, simply because
    Castro #1 stepped down, and doesn’t notice nothings different.
    Obama - Welcome more minorities without education, be glad to foot
    your bill.
    Obama - Maybe some border fencing, but not really to keep anyone out,
    because we all know that partial fencing is merely a detour.

For those of us who are not from a business background, a “brand” is a promise that an entity (usually a company or corporation) makes to its consumers. In the case of Barack Obama, the promise was that he would be a stark anti-war agent of change, and would usher in a new breed of politician. This is a promise broken, no matter how you look at it, as Obama unapologetically changes the channel to Bush TV to invite people of a different political stripe to cast their views onto his blank screen. (Recall from his Audacity of Hope book, Obama writes "I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views").

    Why do the Obama-phites fail to take him at his word? He will host others' views just as easily as he hosts the views that his early supporters have eagerly cast upon him earlier in the primary season.

    We, his sweeties, know what it’s like to be slimed by Obama. Hillary supporters in general know what it’s like to have to listen to a fraud who you know is lying simply because his lips are moving. But *this* is sit-back-with-a-bowl-of-popcorn kind of stuff – the Obama die-hards are starting to freak out over the blatant lies and betrayals that their unquestioned hero Barack Obama that he has been dropping on them lately. Obama is now similar or more far to the right than McCain on many of the Democratic marquee issues.

    OBAMA ON TAXES

    Not Bashful About Raising Taxes
    According to OntheIssues.org the following exchange occurred at the Democratic Presidential Debate in Los Angeles California:

    Question: If either one of you become president, and let the Bush tax cuts lapse, there will be effectively tax increases on
    millions of Americans.

    OBAMA: On wealthy Americans.
    CLINTON: That's right.
    OBAMA: I'm not bashful about it.

    -2008 Democratic debate in Los Angeles, California; Jan 30, 2008

    The Bush Tax Cuts
    "And the Bush tax cuts--people didn't need them, and they weren't even asking for them, and that's why they need to be less, so that we can pay for universal health care and other initiatives."

    -Obama: 2007 Democratic Presidential Debate; Howard University, June 28, 2007

    Who Needs Tax Cuts?
    "We heard the President say he wants to make tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans permanent, when we know that at a time of war and economic hardship, the last thing we need is a permanent tax cut for Americans who don't need them and weren't even asking for them."

    -Obama's response to the 2008 State of the Union address; Jan 28, 2008

    OBAMA ON CRIME

    Time-Served Credit for Sex Predators
    In 1999, while in the Illinois State Legislature, Obama was the only vote AGAINST SB 485, a bill that would prohibit certain persons convicted of criminal sexual abuse from receiving credit for time served in the county jail.

    In 2002, Obama voted "NO" on HB 1812, a bill designed to toughen penalties for crimes committed in furtherance of gang activities.

    -HB 1812 May 12, 2001

    Yes, On Needle Exchanges for Drug Users
    In an interview conducted jointly by ABC and the Internet website Politico.com, Obama stated; "It means that we have to look at drastic measure, potentially like needle exchange in order to insure that drug users are not transmitting the disease to each other."

    -2008 Politico pre-Potomac Primary interview Feb 11, 2008

    OBAMA ON HEALTH CARE

    Universal Health Care
    "Well, look, I believe in universal health care, as does Sen. Clinton. And the point of the debate, is that Sen. Clinton
    repeatedly claims that I don't stand for universal health care. And, you know, for Sen. Clinton to say that, I think, is
    simply not accurate. Every expert has said that anybody who wants health care under my plan will be able to obtain it."

    -Obama: 2008 Democratic Presidential Debate, Cleveland Ohio Feb 26, 2008

    Human Services

    Obama Erases All Of His Previous Criticism Of Iraq Surge From His Campaign Website


    Speaking of Iraq and distractions, Obama’s been sending some inconvenient truth from his campaign website down the memory hole.

    The presumed Democratic nominee replaced his Iraq issue Web page, which had described the surge as a “problem” that had barely reduced violence.

    “The surge is not working,” Obama’s old plan stated, citing a lack of Iraqi political cooperation but crediting Sunni sheiks - not U.S. military muscle - for quelling violence in Anbar Province.

    The News reported Sunday that insurgent attacks have fallen to the fewest since March 2004.

    Obama’s campaign posted a new Iraq plan Sunday night, which cites an “improved security situation” paid for with the blood of U.S. troops since the surge began in February 2007. It praises G.I.s’ “hard work, improved counterinsurgency tactics and enormous sacrifice.”

    So the surge worked and Iraq, by Obama’s own admission, has an “improved security situation.” But do you think Obama will admit that he was wrong?

    Don’t bet on it. Obama will only admit to a limited amount of success in Iraq so that he doesn’t look like a completely disconnected from reality dunderhead, but ultimately what is actually going on in Iraq doesn’t matter at...

    Don’t bet on it. Obama will only admit to a limited amount of success in Iraq so that he doesn’t look like a completely disconnected from reality dunderhead, but ultimately what is actually going on in Iraq doesn’t matter at all to Obama. He decided long ago that the war was a failure, and no amount of success and victory is going to change his mind.

    Because at this point he can’t change his mind. The far-left pushed him to the Democrat candidacy. If he flip-flops completely on the war he’ll lose the far-left.

    All he can do now is tacitly acknowledge the success in so, again, he doesn’t look like a complete fool and then hope that Americans don’t notice how wrong he’s been about Iraq since the first day of his campaign.

    John Kerry, you're off the hook. John Edwards, we're giving you a well-deserved break. You guys were great flip-floppers in your day, but now you've been seriously upstaged. All hail the new King of Flip-Flop - Barack Obama.

    As a rookie flip-flopper, Obama first drew the attention of the environmental lobby about this time last year:

    Although summer hasn’t officially begun, flip-flop season is well underway and it appears Senator Obama has joined the club. Typically flip-floppers are criticized for their inability to stay firm on an issue, but in Obama’s case, his flop has many environmentalists flipping back his way.

    On Tuesday Obama, whose support for coal-to-liquid has been widely criticized by environmentalists, sent out a press release clarifying his position on liquid coal:

    Senator Obama supports research into all technologies to help solve our climate change and energy dependence problems, including shifting our energy use to renewable fuels and investing in technology that could make coal a clean-burning source of energy…However, unless and until this technology is perfected, Senator Obama will not support the development of any coal-to-liquid fuels unless they emit at least 20% less life-cycle carbon than conventional fuels.

    This “clarification” is an important step for the Obama campaign in trying to gain support from environmental organizations and voters.


    For the Candidate of Hope and Change, there were bigger and better flip-flops yet to come. As his campain began to toss Obama's positions on issue after issue under the bus, the Senate's most liberal member made quite an impression on the Washington Post. Back in February, WaPo cited these "Top Obama Flip-Flops":

    1. Special interests In January, the Obama campaign described union contributions to the campaigns of Clinton and John Edwards as "special interest" money. Obama changed his tune as he began gathering his own union endorsements. He now refers respectfully to unions as the representatives of "working people" and says he is "thrilled" by their support.

    2. Public financing Obama replied "yes" in September 2007 when asked if he would agree to public financing of the presidential election if his GOP opponent did the same. Obama has now attached several conditions to such an agreement, including regulating spending by outside groups. His spokesman says the candidate never committed himself on the matter.

    3. The Cuba embargo In January 2004, Obama said it was time "to end the embargo with Cuba" because it had "utterly failed in the effort to overthrow Castro." Speaking to a Cuban American audience in Miami in August 2007, he said he would not "take off the embargo" as president because it is "an important inducement for change."

    4. Illegal immigration In a March 2004 questionnaire, Obama was asked if the government should "crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants." He replied "Oppose." In a Jan. 31, 2008, televised debate, he said that "we do have to crack down on those employers that are taking advantage of the situation."

    5. Decriminalization of marijuana While running for the U.S. Senate in January 2004, Obama told Illinois college students that he supported eliminating criminal penalties for marijuana use. In the Oct. 30, 2007, presidential debate, he joined other Democratic candidates in opposing the decriminalization of marijuana.

    Top flip-flops? Pshaw, that was nearly four full months ago, and the man was just getting warmed up. And Obama's squirming on campaign finance hadn't even gotten off the ground. The New York Post recently ripped Obama for flipping on this and some other issues as well:

    This isn't the first time Obama has, um, "changed" political lanes:

    * He ripped Hillary Clinton for months for voting to list Iran's Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. Days after Clinton conceded, Obama flipped and said he supported the definition.

    * Obama repeatedly vowed to meet with various heads of terror states - most notably Ahmadinejad of Iran - "without preconditions." Then, with the nomination in sight, he zigzagged: "There's no reason why we would necessarily meet with Ahmadinejad. He's not the most powerful person in Iran."

    * In October, he supported NAFTA expansion. In March, campaigning in the Ohio primary, he called for a "reopening" of the trade pact's terms. This week, he called his own primary rhetoric "overheated" and said NAFTA has had a positive effect on the US economy.

    * Yesterday, after signaling opposition to nuclear power, he told Democratic governors he's open to expanding it.

    That Obama is now the King of Flip-Flop will come as a surprise only to his devoted followers who have been too busy swooning over him to notice. Those of us not so easily smitten could have predicted this turn of events. In fact, some did. Consider this blogger who - in a post from August of 2007 titled "Obama The Anti-War Candidate NOW Says He’ll Invade Another Country!" - predicted:

    I guarantee this guy is going to turn into the flip-flopping candidate just like his buddy Kerry did in 2003, 2004.

    Obama's flip-flop on campaign finance was one that did manage to capture the attention of Mark Shields, a liberal columnist who, unlike most of his peers, still has some integrity.

    Barack Obama made history this week. He became the first presidential nominee since Richard Nixon in 1972 to state that his campaign will be funded totally by private donations with no limits on spending.

    It was a flip-flop of epic proportions. It was one that he could not rationalize or justify. His video was unconvincing. He looked like someone who was being kept as a hostage somewhere he was so absolutely unconvincing in it. It could not have passed a polygraph test.

    I mean, coming up with this bogus argument the Republicans have so much more money -- the Republicans don't have so much more money. He's raised three times as much as John McCain has.

    He has every possible committee, except Republican National Committee, Democrats at the Senate level, congressional level have this lopsided edge over Republicans. They spent three times as much, did Democratic leaning 527s, in the last election as did Republicans.

    So what Obama didn't admit was, up until February of this year, when he told Tim Russert that not only would he aggressively seek an agreement on public financing, that he personally would sit down with John McCain and work it out, then, all of a sudden, they realized that all these small contributions were coming in and he was going to have a financial advantage in the fall against the Republican, and they grabbed it.

    Hat Tip: NewsBusters' Noel Sheppard

    Name an issue. Chances are, Obama has flipped on it. Jerusalem?

    Within 24 hours of expressing his firm support for a united Jerusalem in a speech to a pro-Israel lobby organization, US Senator Barack Obama found himself forced to backtrack in the face of Arab anger on Thursday.

    Debates with John McCain? Here's Obama before McCain challenged him to a series of town hall debates:

    If John McCain wants to meet me anywhere, anytime, to have a debate about our respective policies in Iraq, Iran, the Middle East or around the world, that is a conversation I am happy to have.

    Here's an Obama spokesperson after:

    Mr. Plouffe called the McCain campaign’s offer “appealing,” but said they would prefer a format that is “less structured and lengthier than the McCain campaign suggests, one that more closely resembles the historic debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas.”

    Oh, well. So much for "anywhere, anytime." Obama fears going mano a mano with McCain on McCain's terms. No one would blame Obama for holding out for a more favorable deal, if only he had not said, "Anywhere, anytime."

    If campaign finance was the most opportunistic of Obama's flip-flops, this one has to be the most disingenuous:

    In 2007, his campaign told the Chicago Tribune he believed the Washington, D.C. gun ban was constitutional. Now they say that was an "inartful" explanation. Now, the public is supposed to be believe the message of the day from the Obama campaign, which is that of course he knew the gun ban was unconstitutional.

    Obama seems to be working hard to make John Kerry look like a straight-shooter.

    Now plenty of people oppose gun rights (I am not one of them), and if Obama really is one of these, why play politics with such a fundamental issue?

    Oh wait, playing politics with issues is what Barack Obama does.

    -snip-

    -- Obama wants to reimpose a federal gun ban.
    -- Obama voted against the sale of almost all ammunition used regularly for sport shooting and hunting.
    -- Obama opposes Right to Carry laws.
    -- Obama supports a complete ban on hand-gun ownership.

    So now the King of Flip-Flop seems to want to run up the score. That worked so well for John Kerry in 2004, don't you think?
