OBAMA ------ " In his own words "
If you listen to a person carefully enough they will tell you who they are!!
>From Dreams of My Father: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'
From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'
And FINALLY the Most Damning one of ALL of them!!!

This is why I don't understand people backing him."The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal sharing of its blessings; the inherent vice of Socialism is the equal sharing of its miseries." -Winston Churchill

When taken out of context, any quote can appear inflammatory. http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/ownwords.asp

Thanks for the link. I agree that things out of context can change their entire meaning.
He still sucks though"The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal sharing of its blessings; the inherent vice of Socialism is the equal sharing of its miseries." -Winston Churchill

Again, I think when either side of the political fence reduces their point to personal attacks, then it shows desperation. The Obama camps has done it to McCain, and vice versa.
Before Bob posted the snopes link (thanks for saving me the trouble), I figured everything was taken out of context.
I think there's plenty enough reason to hate both candidates, regardless of their personal beliefs. That's why I think it's poor taste to try and "accuse" Obama of being Muslim. If a candidate can fix this country, I wouldn't care if they sacrificed chickens to the spirit of Col. Sanders.
If you can't find legitimate reasons to not vote for Obama, then you're not looking hard enough. Of course, i can say the same about McCain. Both are equally contemptable, IMO."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

Sorry I still don't like a future President who will not salute Our Flag. To many good men gave their lives defending the flag for him to disrespect it.
