    ferakkkan called him the messiah. he went to jerimiah kkk wrights church for 20 years. hes known ayers longer.

    I hope to god youre right.

    a lil quote:

    I hope I am wrong. I hope that Barack Obama is not just a prettified Chicago political hack with a smooth speech and calming manner who has never put principle over political opportunity. He had many opportunities as a state legislator in Illinois to speak out against the rampant political corruption in Chicago, but kept silent. He had twenty years to hear the rantings of Jeremiah Wright and could have challenged his anti-Semitic, anti-American rants, but did nothing until the real Reverend Wright was exposed thanks to video recordings of his many sermons. And even then Barack dissembled. He never heard a single discouraging word from Wright’s pulpit.
    Barack had no qualms about accepting the money and help of Tony Rezko, a convicted felon, even when Barack knew that Rezko was facing a Federal corruption investigation. In fact, we now have clear evidence that Barack lied about the purchase of his mansion in Chicago. He got the equivalent of a bribe from Tony Rezko and this case will dog him for the duration of his Presidency should he be elected.
    Barack had no problem seeking the help and support of Louis Farrakhan. I give Obama credit for being a smart politician who knew he had to pander to the likes of Farrakhan in order to win his first race in Chicago and take out one of Barack’s political mentors, Alice Palmer. But that is old-style, hardball politics, not a new vision that we want for the rest of America.
    Barack also made a conscious decision to befriend, cultivate, and fund some of the most radical groups in America. He has covered up and lied about his longstanding friendship and business association with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers. He has hidden his support for former PLO spokesman Rashid Khalidi and sat in gatherings with folks who talked wistfully about destroying Israel. We can point to no instance where Barack Obama stood up and challenged the hate and anti-Semitic rantings of these folks. Barack found a way to use them to get what he wanted. The end always justified the means it would seem in Barack’s utopian world.
    Some want to give Obama a pass for these past associations. They insist these events tell us nothing about his judgment. Nope. His disciples recite chapter and verse that he wants to rid our country of “politics” as usual. Except he participated without a word of condemnation as his campaign unleashed vile, misogynist attacks on Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. He said nothing to challenge the bullshit charge that Bill Clinton was a racist. He stayed silent while John McCain was equated with elements of the KKK.

    From whom did you cut and paste your meaningless and undocumented "lil quote".......It's not you because the quote contains CAPITALIZATION and punctuation.

    At the risk of getting booted.....It seems a little unbecoming of a moderator to take part in a "catfight" on this site...don't you think?

    Mods are regular users like you and I however they have a higher status. It's Industrialsize's choice as a member (and not as a moderator) to join any discussion.

    Biggin' stir the pot if you like but the stew's already done. John McCain and the GOP's a disastrous, slanderous campaign is over and they shall reap the hatred they have sown.

    a lil quote

    "Except John McCain participated without a word of condemnation as his campaign unleashed vile, attacks on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. He said nothing to challenge the bullshit. He and Sarah Palin stayed silent while elements of the KKK shouted terrorist, kill him and off with his <Obama's> head at GOP rallies."

    I absolutely agree!
    Moderating duties including deleting spam and other maintenance activities, as long as an opinion does not impair one's ability to "point and click", I don't see the issue.

    Wow...I thought this thread might be about the little voting present that I got when I voted...the "I voted" sticker. I was curious if other polling stations were giving out bigger and better presents...
