    Obama to kick off economic tour in Raleigh :: WRAL.com

    Invitation only. Why is that? Wonder who gets the invitations? Think po black folks are on that invite list? Tried to get into the sales seminar yet and found out you're not welcome because your net worth doesn't cut it? Oh, yeah, this is "change." Sure it is.:rolleyes:

    I like the marketing department's work: the "Changes That Work for You Tour"
    sounds about as sincere as the "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit" catchphrase that Cadillac is selling this week. Is there any obvious bullshit Obama fans WON'T buy?

    Wow... I see you're from the South... is this just pure racism... or are you seriously incapable of comprehending that political campaigns must raise money because Americans only respond to advertising and that is expensive?

    Can't comprehend that EVERY candidate holds fundraisers and charges for dinners and the like?

    Unable to discern that the economic facts of modern politics has no bearing whatsoever on the platform on which candidates run?


    Your comment is pointless and ignorant.
    If you have an actual argument, put it forth...

    Ok, anyone with half a brain can see the train wreck that is about to happen. Come on people, give your head a shake, A BLACK PRESIDENT? NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. He will get into office, but it wont be long till one of the close minded bigots of the united states picks him off.
    You want more proof, ok, george w, yes the ahole that is now in office doesnt not reconize gay married because he is to small minded, you think he will let a black man replace him? not going to happen.

    You think Bush has any goddamn say in who replaces him as President? If the current had a chance of barring the upcoming, do you think Bill Clinton would have allowed himself to be replaced by the son of the man he replaced eight years prior?

    Newspapers and reporters spin things based on their personal preference, posting what one politician said at the podium against what an opponent's supporters said on their myspace blogs. If you want to get the facts about what the candidates have said, you have to either attend the speeches or find a video (or transcript) of it online.

    The sheer stupidity of many people posting on these topics continues to astound me.

    OMG... all of this because Obama decided to do an invite only function that wasn't open to the public? Has the stupid really affected our brains this much?

    recriminations probably won't happen

    to be liberal means to be so disengaged from reality, reason and facts, that they float blithely about, like the Laputians in Gullivers Travels, so that up can be down, down can be up

    To be liberal means to be open-minded, generous, candid,unprejudiced and favorable to democratic reforms.

    I think this stuff is tip of the iceberg. People are going to work very hard to come up with reasons to hate Obama, simply because they don't want to admit that they really don't like him because of his ethnicity. When wearing a flag pin can dominate a discussion about the patriotism of a person running for the presidency of the country, all logic and common sense has gone out the window.

    Last time I checked, all of that applies to George Bush, who most definitely is not a liberal. Your house is made of glass, watch what you throw.

    Yeah this "change" crap catchphrase is so generic and weak. Gee, a presidential candidate who wants "change". Wow what an original idea! I was reading my local Portland paper this morning about Obama's candidacy and how he is viewed by some local groups. The arcticle STARTS OFF....STARTS OFF by saying how handsome he is and how "impressed" they are with Michelle,,,how his candidacy will be "historic"..etc...Mentioning nothing about what he stands for politically or what he might do for them as president. People have no substantive reasons as to why they support him,,just that he looks good and offers his change bullcrap message.
