What ELSE about Obama am I going to find out about?!

This was new to me, until today:

http://corner.nationalreview.com/pos...FjMDE4YzRjMjg=

And I found out about this when the guy in the article was a guest on the Michael Medved radio show today and told all about his theory. Michael believes the author/guest has credentials and is credible, and may be onto something about this. Michael talks like he would not have had him on the show as a guest if he thought he was just some kook (like 9-11 conspiracists), trying to drum up something on Obama to stop him from getting elected.

Maybe this has been discussed here already. If so, either rehash it or dump the thread.

To me, now there is yet one MORE thing that leaves me with doubts about Obama and his forthrightness. His patriotism/the flag lapel thing, his wife's attitude about America, pastors Wright and Flager, that house deal (Resko?), the books Obama seems to like to read regarding socialism, Obama's associations with less than patriotic people and terrorists like Ayers, who launched him toward the Presidency with such little experience and why? ....and now this: That maybe Ayers collaborated with Obama on his most successful book that helped make a multi-millionaire out of Obama?

I cannot see how the American public is willing to overlook ALL this stuff regarding Obama, and think his economic plan is the right one. And how the Amercian public seemingly does not realize or doesn't even seem to care, about how we might be electing someone in office who will lead us down the road of socialism, and who knows WHAT all else, based on his associations. Simply because they think Obama will be our economic savior? They think?

In my other newer thread in the Politics forum, someone tried to trap me by asking what is wrong with socialism. Well?...with socialism you are turning over many of your freedoms and choices to the gov't. Where will the incentive come from for the smart people capable of generating wealth, if they feel their wealth will be confiscated for the good of the general population?

How can the poor ever hope to get richer, if the rich get poorer?!!! Idiots!

And let's say once that by people not having guns, let's just say, really WOULD be beneficial to the general population in the long run. Even if that were true, which I bet it isn't, but let's just say it were true....do you want to live under some type of system that starts resembling a regime where the gov't can tell you what you can have, do, etc.????

You people better wise up fast as you only have a few more weeks to help determine your future.!!!!

We need to send Obama back to the SENATE for 4 more years instead, and buy 4 more precious years where we can try to figure out this man!!!!, rather than hastily rush him in to office. We have had what now?...maybe 25 or 35 years or so?, to figure out McCain andwho he really is? But Obama?...who IS this guy?!!!

Think people think. Time is running out!!!

Yes, we all figured out who McCain is. He's the loser.

Well I guess Medved has decided he doesn't really need that pesky credibility stuff. That garbage first was posted on the poorly named 'American Thinker' site. You aren't "finding out" anything about Obama by reading it. More about his detractors desperation.

Ya. Laugh it up. You'll be the next loser - gnashing your teeth after they make you give up guns, and make you stand in soup lines, and order you to work so many hours for your country in the WCC, military or something, for national pride and service. Heil, Obama!

What is YOUR explanation for the styles changes in Obamas writings?
*I* have done a lot of writing over the years. And when I go back and read stuff I wrote 30 some years ago, I still have the same style.

Giving up my guns?

And I'm not laughing at all since I initially supported a rep. Candidate.
But let's face it:

McCain lost the Hanoi-Campaign 1967
McCain lost the presidential Campaign 2000
McCain lost the presidential Campaign 2008

You've had NO growth as a writer over 30 YEARS of writing? And you'll admit to it?

It isn't Obama who needs an explanation...

Nyarl you overlooked one Iamme may have missed.

Hopefully that will spare him starting another thread to tell us that when he finds out.

Really? People like Medved and Hannity have always been this desperate in my eyes.

Edit: On that note, what has Rush been spewing lately?

You'll have to find a new #5. I heard Leonard Nimoy on the radio say that he saw one of the current presidential nominees in a hotel lobby and was greeted with the Vulcan salute. And it wasn't John McCain.

Here's an additional link:

LINK

He also has their endorsement

ETA: I'm guessing that it was that episode with the half black/half white race that destroyed their planet that hooked him. Clearly, he wants to do the same to earth. Or maybe, he's a secret Romulan like Tasha Yar.

Actually for the past 35 years its the flag wavers that have done the most damage to this country. I suggest anyone flying the flag to fly it upside down. Not out of disrespect but out of concern. Flying a national flag upside down is an internationally recgonized distress signal and god knows "we the people" have found ourselves in one hell of a distressing situation thanks to all those red blood lapel pin wearing god fearing Americans. Personally the only people I trust these days are the ones with the courage not to blindly or compulsively display the national colors. America in 2008 does not deserve to fly the colors. The constitution, and the flag that our fathers and grandfathers fought and died to preserve has been so raped and steamrolled as to be an insult to those who shed blood to uphold it. Its a pity that we have people in uniform dying not to uphold our flag and constituition but to uphold a lie spawned in Washington. A lie that Barack Obama did not endorse.

Good stuff.

If you expanded this to 100 or 50 things, you could write a chain email entitled "Things The LIberal Media Didn't Tell You About Barack Obama".

I'd help spread it.

Would McCain supporters know that it was parody?

In any event, worthy of its own thread.

Ah, but does Obama want to be a woman?

And if he does, will he keep the foetus in a box?

You don't know much about the rich do you? The rich are not interested in helping the poor get rich. The idea that making the rich richer will help the poor is delusional. It was disproved in the age of the Robber Barons, it was disproved under Regan and its been throughly trashed under Bush.

The poor we acquire a fair share when and only when a system is in place that allows a fair share. We were getting there until the right wing decided to dismantle The New Deal.

What is unbelievable is that the DNC would approve Obama's nomination without proof of US citizenship.

I must be dense because I only just realized that you are doing comedy here. As somebody who *does* deadpan humor, you'd think I would not be sucked in by somebody else doing it, but there you go.

Funny stuff, man!
