I got a secret crush … on Obama!

The struggle continues. As most right-wing people, I feel a disgust for Hillery. She burned her bridges long ago. But what is not to like about Obama? He is a self-made man, eloquent, sincere, compassionate and reasoned; in other words not your average politician. And even though you do not support his ideological standpoints, one cannot help to get touched by his flaming speeches and his charisma. If he can make Mrs. Clinton cry one more time, I’m all in favor.
But despite all the current interest in Obama, does he stand a chance in the Real election? Frankly, no. And it has nothing with his political inexperience. He can easily make up for that with his intelligence and his insight. But I think what it will come down to is color and name. Americans wouldn’t be willing to consider a mocha-colored candidate like Colin Powell for the presidency, or a witty black female like Condoleza Rice – how much chance does a black man named Barack Hussein Obama then really have? I doubt it. Sadly, nevermind if you’re a Rep like Colin and Condoleza Rice or a Dem like Obama – the matter or skin color is still plaguing the world.

Shame on us all!

    You’re totally wrong with this. Even though I don’t entirely follow polls, they have him winning in a general election. Also, I know a lot of Americans who are “white” that will vote for Obama. Those that will not vote for him are people voting Republican and those that follow Clinton’s agenda.

    There are many people in Illinois that will not vote for this man, not because of his skin colour but because he is a political non-entity. According to many Democrats and Republicans, this man shows up but never votes on anything. I haven’t researched his voting record yet, but these people consider him to be a political idiot base on what he has done so far – nothing. Listen to what he says and you do get a small insight about him; he has no substance.

    I believe it is the media that perpetrates this myth more than anything. Yes, there are people that will never vote for him because of his colour – their loss. It is not as many as you think.

    What are the differences in Obama’s agenda and Clinton’s agenda anyways? Feels like it is pretty much same thing …

    Hillary has a plan and in my opinion it has been tweaked for the last 12+ years. Her healthcare plan is designed to punish us with taxation in order that us Americans can have a crappy healthcare just so people can say everyone is taken care of when in reality it is not. She also has her socialistic ideas which have been fermenting for the past 12+ years.

    Obama just says things. He is using his Charisma and teenage slogan to gain support. Clinton’s popularity is a nice helper too. This man lacks substance. When encountering tough decisions he chooses not to make one. Not the type of President I would want. From what I’ve found so far he has done this approximately 130 times. This man has no agenda; he only follows the party line.

    I am beginning to think I’ve given this man more intelligence than he really has. I can give Hillary, I really detest her, respect with making decisions and going in a direction, but this man is like a ship in the ocean without power.

    As much as I am not a McCain man, I prefer him over Obama and that woman.

    GOD AMERICA!! Give us candidates that are worthy of our vote!

    So, Bill, anyways…what kind of candidate DO you advocate for?

  5. Bill says:

    Someone that wants what I want.

    I can write a nice long article for the true answer. There will always be issues that I disagree with but who the person is tells much about them.
