    This is a letter from a Micheal Masters to Senator Obama. Its a little long, I apologize for that. However, factual and accurate. Time after time - dishonesty and misleading the American people. Maybe he'll start remembering the truth when he gets elected.:rolleyes:


    To Barack Hussein Obama,

    The New York Times carried a story on Saturday, October 4, 2008, that proved you had a significantly closer relationship with Bill Ayers than what you previously admitted. While the issue of your relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about it.

    The Chicago Sun reported on May 8, 2008, that FBI records showed that you had a significantly closer relationship with To ny Rezko than what you previously admitted. In the interview, you said that you only saw Mr. Rezko a couple of times a year. The FBI files showed that you saw him weekly. While the issue of your relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about it.

    Your speech in Philadelphia on March 18, 2008, about 'race' contradicted your statement to Anderson Cooper on March 14 when you said that you never heard Reverend Wright make his negative statements about white America . While your attendance at Trinity Church for 20 years is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America on March 14.

    In your 1st debate with John McCain, you said that you never said that you would meet with the leaders of Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, and North Korea without 'preparations' at lower levels ... Joe Biden repeated your words in his debate with Sarah Palin ... while the video tape from your debate last February clearly shows that you answered 'I would' to the question of meeting with those leaders within 12 months without 'any' preconditions. While your judgement about meeting with enemies of the USA without pre-conditions is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America in the debate with McCain.

    On July 14, 2008, you said that you always knew that the surge would work while the video tapes of you from more than a year ago show that you stated that the surge would not work. While your judgement about military strategy as a potential commander-in-chief is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America on July 14.

    You now claim that your reason for voting against funding for the troops was because the bill did not include a time line for withdrawal, while the video tapes of you from more than a year ago show that you voted against additional funding because you wanted our troops to be removed immediately ... not in 16 months after the 2008 election as you now claim. While your judgement about removing our troops unilaterally in 2007 is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about your previous position.

    You claim to have a record of working with Republicans while the record shows that the only bill that you sponsored with a Republican was with Chuck Lugar ... and it failed. The record shows that you vote 97% in concert with the Democrat party and that you have the most liberal voting record in th e Senate. You joined Republicans only 13% of the time in your votes and those 13% were only after agreement from the Democrat party. While it is of concern that you fail to include conservatives in your actions and that you are such a liberal, the greater concern is that you distorted the truth.

    In the primary debates of last Febru ary,
    2008, you claimed to have talked with a 'Captain' of a platoon in Afghanistan 'the other day' when in fact you had a discussion in 2003 with a Lieutenant who had just been deployed to Afghanistan . You lied in that debate.

    In your debates last spring, you claimed to have been a 'professor of Constitutional law' when in fact you have never been a professor of Constitutional law. In this last debate, you were careful to say that you 'taught a law class' and never mentioned being a 'professor of Constitutional law.' You lied last spring.

    You and Joe Biden both claimed that John McCain voted against additional funding for our troops when the actual records show the opposite. You distorted the truth.

    You and Joe Biden claim that John McCain voted against funding for alternate energy sources 20 times when the record shows that John McCain specifically voted against funding for bio fuels, especially corn ... and he was right .... corn is too expensive at producing ethanol, and using corn to make ethanol increased the price of corn from $2 a bushel to $6 a bushel for food. You distorted the truth.

    You and Joe Biden claim that John McCain voted like both of you for a tax increase on those making as little as $42,000 per year while the voting record clearly shows that John McCain did not vote as you and Joe Biden. You lied to America

    You and Joe Biden claim that John McCain voted with George W. Bush 90% of the time when you know that Democrats also vote 90% of the time with the President (including Joe Biden) because the vast majority of the votes are procedural. You are one of the few who has not voted 90% of the time with the president because you have been missing from the Senate since the day you got elected. While your absence from your job in the Senate is of concern, the greater concern is that you spin the facts.

    You forgot to mention that you personally represented Tony Rezko and Acorn.&n bsp; Tony Rezko, an Arab and close friend to you, was convicted of fraud in Chicago real estate transactions that bilked millions of tax dollars from the Illinois government for renovation projects that you sponsored as a state senator ... and Acorn has been convicted of voter fraud, real estate sub prime loan intimidation, and illegal campaign contributions. Tony Rezko has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to your political campaigns. You personally used your political positions to steer money to both Tony Rezko and Acorn and you used Acorn to register thousands of phony voters for Democrats and you. While your relationships with Rezko and Acorn are of concern, the greater concern is that you omitted important facts about your relationships with them to America .

    You claim that you will reduce taxes for 95% of America , but you forgot to tell America that those reductions are after you remove the Bush tax reductions. You have requested close to $1 billion in earmarks and several mill ion for Acorn. Your social programs will cost America $1 trillion per year and you claim that a reduction in military spending ($100 billion for Iraq ) can pay for it. While your economic plan of adding 30% to the size of our federal government is of concern, the greater concern is that you are deceiving America .

    The drain to America 's economy by foreign supplied oil is $700 billion per year (5% of GDP) while the war in Iraq is $100 billion (less than 1% of GDP). You voted against any increases to oil exploration for the last 3 years and any expansion of nuclear facilities. Yet today, you say that you have always been for more oil and more nuclear. You are lying to America .

    Mr. Obama, you claimed that you 'changed' your mind about public financing for your campaign because of the money spent by Republican PACs in 2004. The truth is that the Democrat PACs in 2004, 2006, and 2008 spent twice as much as the Republican PACs (especially George Soros and MoveOn.org). You are lying to America

    Mr. Obama, you have done nothing to stop the actions of the teachers union and college professors in the USA . They eliminated religion from our history. They teach pro gay agendas and discuss sex with students as young as first grade. They bring their personal politics into the classrooms. They disparage conservatives. They brainwash our children. They are in it for themselves ..... not America . Are you reluctant to condemn their actions because teachers/professors and the NEA contribute 25% of all money donated to Democrats and none to Republicans? You are deceiving America

    Oh, Mr. Obama, Teddy Roosevelt said about a hundred years ago that we Americans should first look at the character of our leaders before anything else.

    Your character looks horrible. While you make good speeches, motivating speeches, your character does not match your rhetoric. You talk the talk, but do not walk the walk.

    1. You lied to America . You lied many times. You distorted facts. You parsed your answers like a lawyer.

    2. You distorted the record of John McCain in your words and in your advertisements.

    3. You had associations with some very bad people for your personal political gains and then lied about those associations.

    4. You divide America about race and about class.

    Now let me compare your record of lies, distortions, race baiting, and associations to John McCain: War hero. Annapolis graduate with 'Country first.' Operational leadership experience like all 43 previously elected presidents of the USA as a Navy officer for
    22 years. 26 years in the Senate. Straight talk. Maverick. 54% of the time participated on bills with Democrats. Never asked for an earmark. The only blemish on his record is his part in the Keating 5 debacle about 25 years ago.
    Mr. Obama, you are dishonest. Anyone who votes for you is enabling dishonesty.

    Mr. Obama , America cannot trust that you will put America first in your decisions about the future.

    Mr. Obama, you are not the 'change' that America deserves. We cannot trust you.

    Mr. Obama, You are not ready and not fit to be commander-in-chief.

    Mr. Obama, in a democracy, we get what we deserve. And God help America if we deserve you.

    Not when it's a random letter from any random individual. Who knows if this person is as deluded about Obama than, shall we say, yourself?

    Poor grammar in the first paragraph, asking for 'God's' help in the last.

    Enough for me.

    Also, Obama is a terrible public speaker.

    I'm not religious, and I'm hoping for God to help us, too.

    VB and IS, instead of taking Obama's cue and attacking Micheal Masters and Joe the plumber, please instead respond to the facts.

    Dear fellow LPSG-ers:

    Now, to be fair just imagine how sad and narrow starinvestor's life must be for him to spend so much time and energy ranting and raving against Obama; especially on a large penis support group site? He resorts to any and all means to deride liberals, libertarians, and possibly librarians if one is not a conservative or a neo con. It's a mark of mental illness. We should take his diatribes in stride with the understanding that he is sick man most likely suffering a brain chemical imbalance.

    Have you checked out his gallery photos? He doesn't even have a large penis.

    But with the right treatment and compassionate care, it may be possible for starinvestor to overcome his shortcomings and live a reasonably productive, happy, and healthy life. Emphasis on the may.

    Remember: be kind and rewind.

    People like starinvestor and Mr. M. Master only have a few days left to expect their slanted views and narrowed observations to be noticed. It's too bad the media is playing into it also, but that's what they do I guess.

    Anybody voting early? I am.

    Nice redirect Wonder Woman/midlife whoever you are. The consistency of the liberal mantra - attack anything and everything that walks, talks or breaths, but avoid confronting the facts at all costs.

    Yup and you betcha. I just arrived back in the good ol' U S of Ayyy and am happily ensconced in my ranch house north of Wells, Nevada. Unfortunately, early voting does not begin until October 18th. But I'll be at the Elko County Court House early, waiting in line and chatting up my long-time neighbors; the majority of whom are old-time Republicans and have indicated in private and public that they will not be voting the GOP ticket this election. We've even got Caribou Barbi and McCain in state today trying to save Nevada from turning blue. I like blue. The sky is blue. My husband's eyes are blue. And Vegas and Reno are two places on the map that a Republican shouldn't try to change the minds of the "undecided." The "heartland carbine carrying gun patriots" are out in places like Panaca, Pioche, Austin, Eureka, Fallon, Ely, Caliente and Pahrump. And they often miss voting Republican because it interferes with mule deer and elk hunting seasons. One does have one's priorities. :biggrin1:

    BTW Starinvestor: With the right medication your ability to spell -- in English -- might also improve. You're so rabid that you can't breathe and you're all out of "breaths." LOL!

    It's not a shock that he's lied, backpeddling, contradicted. Pretty much all politicians do it, en route to being all things and all issues to all ppl.

    What is a shock is how safe and friendly the mainstream media has been to Obama. They are protecting him at all costs... there's more on the Keating Five, Bristol Palin, and so on, ... then bringing any of his past to light under the guise of "we won't get into swiftboating again". I expected them to treat Obama with kid gloves, but this is frighteningly astounding... and thusly why the election is over. The McCain campaign needed to the mainstream media's job... and waited too late, and even then came out with a whimper.

    For example, the "redistribution of wealth" was buried. We spent more time on who Joe Plumber was, vs what Obama said to Joe Plumber.
