McCain vs Obama

Real Estate Broker/Owner with T.U.P. Realty

I wanted to take a few minutes to voice my opinion on the presidential race. Please bear with me while I share my view.

Obama was the only Illinois congressman to vote against a measure that would have made it Illegal for Doctors to allow live born children to die after a botched abortion. This is not an issue of choice. We are talking about a fully born child that is living and breathing and Senator Obama believes it is ok to allow those children to die due to lack of attention given by the Doctor?

While John McCain was sitting in a POW camp in Vietnam Obama tells us in his book "Dreams from my father" that he was experimenting with marijuana and cocaine.

Did you realize that John McCain's own son is a soldier serving in Iraq? Wonder if he has the soldiers best interest at heart?

Barack Hussein Obama is not his birth given name. It is Barry. He changed his name to Barak Hussein Obama. Wonder what his motives were for that.

Obama kicked off his campaign at this mans home.

Thats Bill Ayers. Obama's personal friend who is a former member of the radical Weather Underground Organization that claimed responsibility for a dozen bombings between 1970 and 1974.

According to the Wasington Post "

Both Obama and Ayers were members of the board of an anti-poverty group, the Woods Fund of Chicago, between 1999 and 2002. In addition, Ayers contributed $200 to Obama's re-election fund to the Illinois State Senate in April 2001, as reported here. They lived within a few blocks of each other in the trendy Hyde Park section of Chicago, and moved in the same liberal-progressive circles."

I have heard some say that we should vote for Barack because his is Black and its time we had a Black president. I agree it is time for a change in America and is Colon Powell and Condelleza Rice were on the ticket I would be out campaigning for them but not Barack.

Obama said that drilling for our own oil is not a way to rid ourselves of foreign dependency on oil. His plan "everyone should inflate their tires.

I beg of you to think of one goverrnment program that works better than private industry? Can't think of one? Obama wants to nationalize healthcare and the oil industry.  Do you realize that the oil industry made 11B in profits on 100B in revenue last quarter? Thats sounds like alot of profit. On that same amount of revenue the government made 36B in tax revenue. Who's getting rich here?

When will we realize that government is the problem and not the answer?

So before you get caught up in the Obama whirlwind do your own research. This man is not right for America. Not now not ever.

I usually dont participate in political debates but I'm up late so what the hey.

Let me start out by saying that I respect your beliefs, although I do not share them. Honestly, who is right for America? Is any one person really the BEST? Should McCain be PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES because he was a Prisoner of War? Does that entitle him somehow? I certainly honor and respect the man for his service and bravery to the country - but does it mean that he will make a good President? I am not saying that he would or wouldnt be - but frankly am tired of hearing that reasoning. I was watching Sen. McCain on "The Tonight Show" last night and to be honest I was really enjoying his interview - until he used the first chance he could to remind the world that he was a POW for 5 years and by golly that made him President material. You were a POW, we get it.

And the Ayers guy? Who didn't get arrested in the 60's? Your parents and mine were probably doing some stuff that would shock us to know. Experimenting with drugs? Ok I dont think that too many of us should throw stones at that one, especially not those growing up in the 70's.  Sorry, but being in an anti-poverty group a decade ago that a person who was arrested 40 years ago is in is hardly a cause for concern.

People are certainly coming out of the woodworks with reasons why Obama is wrong for America - where were ya'll when Georgie was being re-elected?

Being a good soldier doesn't make you a good leader. While I respect McCain for what he endure and his ability to survive it I just don't think he is capable of leading our country. Me need someone who makes a good leader ... not a good follower. John McCain is a follower of the Bush dynasty and we can't afford to take a chance he will make the same kind of decisions and use the same poor judgement as Bush ... and his Daddy, too. Seems that with Bush the first our economy crashed and the Real Estate Market crashed and took 9 years to recover from that crash. History does repeat itself and we can't let that happen again.

All im hearing here is a spewing of the Liberal Talking points.

McCain is NOTHING like George Bush. I am also confident that History will be much more kind to Bush than the left wing media of today.

Give me a reason why Barack Obama is right for America?

What has he done? What will he do?

And no my parents did not get arrested in the 60s my mother was working for the phone company and father was fighting the vietnamese. Most normal americans were not snorting concaine and changing their name to some odd sounding name.

Jeff, William Ayers was arrested for detonating bombs on American soil.  And Obama chose to kick off his campaign in that guy's house?  Unbelievable!

I think your report is right on!

Latest news about McCain is more bi-partisan than Obama is notable.

If we don't want to keep getting stuck in political gridlock, it is important to reach across the aisle and get cooperation from both sides in order to move forward.

Visualize this: two wheels, one moves back, one moves forward. How do we get anywhere?

I was just told to look this up on Google so I did. Type in ACORN CRIMINAL OBAMA and read, I guess from the news Obama was the Attorney for this group who lives to screw up elections? Has criminal charges for tampering?..Makes me wonder if Obama was elected on the up and up to start with! This man frightens me.
