Obama

Obama girls

what a joke the same old song and dance is.

i stand for change!

this is more of a critique on the democratic platform than anything.

carter ran on a platofrm of ‘change’. mondale did too. then there was dukakis, who was the first time i really started paying attention to politics. i loved reagan.

he was the only time any politician promised change and delivered. he had the youth vote then. carter had runaway double digit inflation. double digit unemployment, and the soviet army was laughing at our poor excuse for a military. yeah. the world was running all over us. hostages in iran. carter gave away the panama canal.

we were a joke.

but reagan didn’t run on the lip service platform of ‘i stand for change’

clinton, (both of them) ran on a platform of, what is the republican stance? meee toooo! except i also stand for change!

pity ross perot ran then. he cut 18 percent of the vote out of the equation. mostly from bush sr. i say that because i voted for him. and slick willie just never stood a chance of getting my vote.

kerry ran on a platform of change.

how sad. the democraps are hoodwinking the american public. they get attention by decrying the war in iraq as vietnam (which we are now winning), and then equate that too ‘the public needs national health care’. because i want to change!

obama. the fresh new face. really? 6 years in the senate, and shit tons of time on his short life in the illinois legislature before that. he is old time politician. plain and simple.

he says change, but that battle cry is old hat….. and not a change.

in the near months. he’ll sound exaclty like kerry, or clinton, or any of the rest of the vote buyers.

i am enjoying the fact he is spanking shrillary though

oh, don’t think obama is actually old school politico? think he REALLY does stand for something different? he keeps voting to allow the troops to stay in iraq. and aside from voting tax money to energy bills for bailouts, what i find most interesting is the fact that he really does have the youth vote.

the youth like this guy? i mean, the young are the people who will have to pay the most for national health care. what with the north american union erasing borders, ALL mexicans will shortly be able to hop the border legally for free health care on their dime.

but even worse than that? he voted to allow banks and credit card companies to charge more than 30% interest on credit cards and loans.

yep. that’s right. students are supporting the guy who voted for raising the interest rate on STUDENT LOANS!

talk about a hard lesson in politics. obama is about to fuck the youth of this country like they have never had it before. really all up in there and shit.

change!

bullshit. same old song and dance. all three of them.

  1. The kids love Obama for the same reason we all loved Bill Clinton in the early 90s – because he was young like us, and not old like George Bush Sr. I remember being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed during the ’92 election and honestly – had not a clue what Clinton “stood for.”

    I always remember the boss from my first post-college job, who used to make fun of me because I was a Democrat at the time. He said, “Just you wait until you starting making a good amount of money. You’ll become a conservative because you won’t want to to give it all away to people who won’t have to work for it.” Very true words.

  2. Hes voted to keep the troops in Iraq? Thats a welcome surprise.

    While he is an excellent speaker – charismatic and articulate – he for the most part makes me crazy. He pulls the wool over the sheep’s eyes to secure the necessary votes. Thats exactly what his spewing of change is….nothing more. I would honestly vote for the crazy Hill before I would vote for this left wing nut. He claims to bring an opportunity for unification and change, but he has consistently shown an inability to do just that.

  3. It’s unquestionable that Obama truly will mainfest the Change he speaks of. After 8 years of Bush, how could he be otherwise? And even to some degree compared to Hillary (though many of their policies are the same, it would all seem too deja vu if she got in– the Age of Billary would be over, praise Jeezus, if it’s Obama instead).

    So, you may not LIKE the Change he proposes, but you won’t be able to deny that it is indeed Change! Trying to knock him for that concept is stoopid.

    Mlah: “he keeps voting to allow the troops to stay in iraq”
    Can you substantiate this? And if it is true, don’t you you agree with it?

    “voting tax money to energy bills for bailouts”
    Again, please source this. I’d really like to know what you’re referring to.

    “the youth like this guy? i mean, the young are the people who will have to pay the most for national health care. what with the north american union erasing borders, ALL mexicans will shortly be able to hop the border legally for free health care on their dime.”
    What is this “North American Union” you speak of? Please point me to the conspiracy website that explains it. 😉
    Where do you get your projections on what health care will cost under his plan?

    “but even worse than that? he voted to allow banks and credit card companies to charge more than 30% interest on credit cards and loans. yep. thats right. students are supporting the guy who voted for raising the interest rate on STUDENT LOANS!”
    Show me the roll call of this vote. How did McAngry vote on it?

  4. Yep, looks like McAngry voted the same as Obama on the 30% issue. In fact, NO Republicans voted for it. Douchebag.

  6. It’s very interesting how the election is being so closely watched. I was in a pub in Rome over the weekend and some Aussie wanted to engage me in a discussion of U.S. politics. I tried to talk about substantial issues like our support for the independence of Kosova (which really really pissed off Russia) and the political crisis in Kenya (which could destabilize the HOA and have severe repercussions in Southern Africa), and all he wanted to know was whether I liked Obama as president.

    Sheesh. Obama is a politician. His background is local politics, and he cannot treat national and international politics in the same manner. He needs to get himself some expert handlers to do the foreign policy, as he has shown some real gaffes on the campaign trail. He will not be able to deliver on all of his campaign promises — no presidential candidate can do so — and he will quickly learn that his comrades in the Senate and across the Hill in the House will not cooperate when he becomes President. Unless he really wants to destroy the Constitutional separation of powers and castrate the Presidency by handing all decision-making powers to the Congress.

    Yes, I do believe it’s looking like President Obama. I am excited by the possibility if only to prove to the American people — and the Europeans — that Jim Crow and the legacy of racism are more dead in the U.S. that any other place on the planet. I mean seriously, a black Commerce Secretary, a black National Security Advisor, and a black Secretary of State have not been enough to convince people that racism is not the major social issue that it once was. Will a black President do so, or will people continue to cling to their illusions?

    And even if Obama does not win, we are looking at a truly historical presidency, with the other two major candidates being a Womyn and a Prisoner-of-War. Will McCain be elected? Doubt it. He just doesn’t have the support base. Will Hillary be elected. God, I hope not. We don’t need another Clinton in the White House any time soon. But if she is, simply change the name and substitute Womyn for black in the above paragraph on Obama.

    This election is getting the young people interested, at least. My baggers at the Commissary were arguing about Ron Paul. They were supporters, and believe that he would be able to fulfill his promise of bringing the troops home from Iraq. As if. I really don’t believe any of the candidates could do so, without bringing them home from Kosova and Bosnia as well. Not to mention Korea, Afghanistan, Japan and Germany.

    As for nationalized healthcare, the American people have been convinced by the Democrats and a duplicitous MSM that they need the government to handle such parts of their lives. Look forward to Canadian- and British-style public health systems. Prepare to fly to India for commercial health care.

  7. Nationalized Health Care, courtesy the Liberal government:

  8. Yup: “Nationalized Health Care, courtesy the Liberal government:”
    For every one of those stories about other countries’ nat’l health care goof-ups, I can find one about our system. In this case:
    “L.A. launches probe into dumping of homeless
    Ambulances were seen leaving recently discharged patients on the streets”

    Mlah: “so you make my point gus. obama voted the same as mcangry. mcangry is business as usual, ergo, odamnya is as well.”
    Only because your “point” is so wide as to be completely meaningless. What is your fucking point? If it’s that Obama won’t really be Change, yes, he will be very different from Bush, so he’ll be Change by definition. Get over it. If your point is that young people shouldn’t vote for him because he didn’t support a cap on credit, well, I dunno the details of that, but he was in agreement w/ every Republican senator including McCain, so that doesn’t really help young people or anyone else decide between the 2 of them in November.
