    Brutus, how do you feel about the GOPs latest attack, suggesting that Obama's willingness to meet with Raul Castro is dishonorable. There have been similar allegations that a future President Obama's talking with Ahmedinejad would also be unforgiveable. Do you ascribe to the notion that a President must be isolated from overt communication with controversial foreign leaders? Do you believe in the isolation of the Executive from diplomatic "cooties"?

    You've really got that John Kerry / Al Gore look down your nose at the little people thing down to an art form hype. It's almost like you took a class in how to write like a snob.

    Serious people need to gently educate? You sound like a Nazi.

    Yes, it worked out so well for the aforementioned POTUS wannabes.

    15/19: "Serious people need to gently educate? You sound like a Nazi."

    When was the last time you listened to a Nazi? They pumped up and exploited the same kind of fears that I'm trying to poke holes in.

    If Obama had tried to assail the grossly-overblown al-Qaeda myth in Iraq during that debate, it would have meant sudden death to his candidacy, at the hands of the corporate-media mob. There are truer parallels with 1930s fascism than my disgust. If you open your eyes, you'll see that in our most public arenas, lies are consistently promoted over reason. Sincere politicians must watch their step very carefully, when a powerful mythology has been glorified by a warfare state, and the crowd is primed and ready to tear heretics apart.

    Senator says he's smoke-free

    Title: "Obama Says He's Quit Smoking", by Associated Press
    Date: February 28, 2008

    I must confess, I can't imagine quitting in the middle of a presidential campaign. Of course, if he had to "sneak" his cigarettes, that would help. I can't imagine it's easy to find the time. ("Barack? What are you doing in there?" Um ... nothing! I'll be right out!)

    Good show, Senator. I think something like this could actually have become an issue in the general. Given the rancid conservative ejaculations voters swallowed in 2004, it isn't hard to imagine someone saying, "Well, I don't want to vote for a smoker. It sets a bad example for the kids."

    Yes. It is better for a potential "POTUS wannabe" to speak to the public like they are stupid and treat them as such. Treat 'em dumb and for god's sake, DO NOT USE BIG WORDS! Speak to them like they're edumicated!

    A lot better than it worked out for the insecure little guys who took offense at what they saw (after being reminded a few dozen times, in loud and simple and slowly declaimed words, by the regular radio guys who tell them what to think ) as snobbery.

    They just lost an election. They didn't end up voting for W&Co because they thought he respected them.

    Honest to Pete, do you guys actually think the Fox News programmers respect the people they're stroking ?

    Obama's racist and marxist church. Obama is a proud member of Trinity United Church of Christ, a church whose membership swear by "black" ethics such as


    Commitment to the Black Community
    Commitment to the Black Family
    Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
    Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
    Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
    Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
    Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System
    Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System

    zarlok: "Obviously you've never been to college."

    That's been said before, but it doesn't make it true.

    "Obama is a proud member of Trinity United Church of Christ, a church whose membership swear by "black" ethics..."

    Oh NO!!! Black Ethics! Is that like black magic? Source, please.

    That is fundamentally unRepublican and, ipso facto, unAmerican!

    Barack Obama is a liar. No idea Rezko was damaged goods? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXAQ3BHTbjs


    He will probably also renege on his agreement with Mccain on public funds for the general election. Funny for a guy that claims that you should not be able to wave a tidal wave of cash into the white house when that is all he has done in the primaries, a bit of a hypocrite.

    I'm not sure what Obama originally said on using public financing for the general election, but he legitimately seems to have overlooked the loopholes. It would be pointless to use general financing and then allow the same thing to continue through independent groups and other methods.

    It might be "pointless", but otherwise Obama is just lieing again. on top of being a hypocrite.
