    I have to agree. He is not a very good speaker.
    SEMrush

    I hope she wins too.. The lottery that is. Then she could invest some more money in undoing the ugly stick treatment she was afflicted with.

    Now that is comedy gold :)

    About this Clinton Lady though, when people say they will vote for her I don't think they quite understand the magnitude of the powers that will be claimed by the government if she wins.

    The problem for me, as a voter and US Citizen is that Hillary just seems too cold. She is very smug, has an arrogant look about her and in general seems out of touch with most voters.

    In order to win she is really going to have to put on a smile once and a while and stop smirking at other peoples opinions. She condescends to everyone that does not think like her. She thinks she knows best, and no one else's opinion matters. It shows in her face, and her attitude.

    Jesus H Christ we are getting virtual blanket OBAMA coverage here in the UK. [​IMG]

    Will the Illuminati choose this guy over Hillary I wonder?

    I would think highly unlikely as he is
    a) The wrong colour
    and
    b) His name sounds far too much like Osama.

    Are you in the US getting this blanket coverage of the man they call......................OBAMA! :D

    I'm not worried about Obama at all, he is no threat.

    A. The man has NO experience.
    B. His name sounds like Bin Laden's and his middle name is Hussein. Now, that may be a silly little detail, but there is no way he will be elected with a name like that.
    C. Has a Muslim background. Again, a small detail but considering we are at war with Muslims and all the terrorism going on right now, it's another huge hurdle for him to overcome.
    D. And last but not least, another little but important detail, he is indeed a black man.

    That's way too much for him to overcome. It gives the far left people someone to get excited about, but he doesn't have a chance in hell. Only way he will make it to the white house is if Hillary puts him on as VP. Unfortunately, I can't see ANYONE beating Hillary. All the republicans running are worthless. I'd like to see Savage run honestly, that would be cool. He can't win, but I'd love to see him crush people in debates.

    I hardly doubt the rightwing is scared of Obama...he has as much of a voting record as John Edwards, which is next to nothing...no one knows where he stands on the issues except the issue of bringing socialized health care and giving more to unions so they will vote for him...He's a socialist loving shrillary wanna be...I look for her to ask him to run for VP...

    SCW, we must think alike...and I see maybe Giuliani could beat shrillary....except hes really not a republican...

    Way to spew someone elses talking points

    Did you know that Obama as the same amount of experience as Lincoln?

    How much experience did George Bush have when he ran for office?

    These 3 are problems for retards/republicans who probably wouldn't voted for a democrat anyway.

    Remember back then that the ones that voted for Lincoln were all northern states...the south didn't vote for him....also, Obama has no experience, other than being someones "baby-daddy"...Bush was at least governor of texas for many years and comes from a political family...

    And he is right about the name stuff...remember most of the people that vote can't even figure out how to use a voting machine...if they did, would we have had the problems with Al (sniffle) Gore?


    doesn't mean he wasn't once a muslim...

    I don't know, the public memory of winners such as a (formerly) wastrel alcoholic, or a deeply pathetic womanizer, seems to be fairly short.

    But more, at the heart of it, the intimation "doesn't mean he wasn't once a muslim" leaves me confused.

    First of all, I don't believe he was ever a muslim. I could be wrong, but his own words - he

    -seem to indicate no. Of course, easy enough to call him a liar. I could not care less.

    More, though, I thought the very essence of Christianity was that the most base of people - even a former muslim - were reborn on accepting Christ into their lives; literally, a "new person." (sarcasm added).

    Are there now degrees of acceptance of another's conversion to Christianity, judged by others, based on a former life? In other words, something like hushed whispers in the early church:

    "pssst....well, you know, that Mary Magdalene - she used to be a whore."

    Was it not Christ himself who welcomed a thief into paradise, the day of his crucixion?

    Astounding.

    Would the man make a good president? This should be the sole question.

    you mean you highly doubt the republican american public will vote for him. That doesn't mean as much for the democrats.

    Still, i think he has very low chances of getting into office unless as Hillary's wingman. Than, with weak republican candidates, the general disdain for the republican party as of late and strong support from minorities. Hillary has pretty good chance of getting into office. If they get elected and have a good run, he might have a chance to run after her, he's still young.

    I don't think Kennedy will be voting for Osama - errr Oboma...

    (His words not mine. LOL)

    I bet there are people out there that stupid, like Kennedy, who think that it is the same name, and there are still people who won't vote for a black person for president - just look up the people who think that Rice and Powell are just puppets, etc - those racists may have a hard time voting for Obama.

    IF the color of a person's skin is your issue - you are an idiot...


    Someones past should be brought up when running for president, but the pressure sure be on those things that are still going on. Like if someone is still using drugs, etc... Not so much did they in there past. Obama has had things in his past and he is a man for admitting all those things, that tells me they probably won't be part of his future.

    As far as experience - no one has shown that he has any. He does have a likable personality and charisma, but that doesn't get the job done.

    What experience are you looking for?

    Does he need to run some failed oil ventures and manage a baseball team?

    What exactly is the experience you are talking about, because personally I don't think you have clue and you are jsut parroting what you heard on TV.

    obama was 7 years in state senate, now in the united states senate

    contitutional lawyer, magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School

    what type of experience is good for president, some quesionable arab friends?, to be part of some super rich family?
