Look at Obama's record to see the man

  • Follow Letters

Many of the following facts have been kept from the public regarding Sen. Barack Obama. It is important that they know of these facts, then decide what kind of person he really is:

- He voted against a bill to protect babies who survive abortion attempts.

- He voted against the Bush tax cuts, and against repealing the death tax.

- He wants to raise the amount of your Social Security benefits that can be taken.

- He voted against confirming Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito.

- He has vowed to force universal health care on us.

- He insists that his support for legalized abortion doesn't make him less Christian.

- His Chicago church describes its congregation as "Africans" who remain "true to our native land, the mother continent."

- He voted against banning partial-birth abortions.

- He voted against a bill that would have doled out harsher sentences to gang members who commit crimes.

And Obama's preacher -- who told his parishioners they should sing "God d--- America" instead of God Bless America. A preacher is supposed to preach love, as Jesus would. Instead, for 20 years Obama and his family have continued going to this church and listening to treasonous sermons against our country.

Do not trust Obama, and above all research his agenda. His wife even spoke ill of the United States.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The tree, in this case, is the rhetoric from the church he attends. Be wise.

Obama is also guilty of the

Obama is also guilty of the most undignified as well as unprofessional behavior of actually "flipping off" Clinton during the debates. Of course those who think this person is greater than God Himself will undoubtly challenge the video and or picture but it is unmistakable. Send this man back to his fellow racists and lets get on with intelligent debating and possible solutions to real issues instead of ignorant rantings we have thus far been inundated.

I sure would feel better if I

I sure would feel better if I knew what his plan consists of. He says he is concerned with the economy-Gas prices, grocery prices-yet, he spends no time in Washington working on a solution. Bills are presented and passed (or not) in the Senate/Congress, not out on the campaign trail. The next president won't take office for 9 more months. Even after that it will be months or years before bill can be passed. Why aren't they doing the job they were hired to do and at least making an effort now when it is needed. We all know that if any of the three are serious he/she would be working on it now, or would have during their tenure . McCain has proposed a bill in Congress to reduce the Federal taxes on gasoline to help us at the pumps./ I have heard of no other attempt being made. This is a sorry state of affairs and a sorry slate of candidates that we have no choice but to choose from.

This is the first I have

This is the first I have heard of the " Flipping off" part. What bill did they have to " Protect babies who survived an abortion attempt"? As far as the Supreme Court, so what if he voted against them, I am sure he was not the only one. Also, I believe that this man is a Democrat, I would expect that some of his voting practices would be different from a Republican. This letter is much to do about nothing. The problem I have with him, is his lack of experience. The rest is just a buch of distractions. IMHO.

Dear Dr,
There is an old saying...
"Kick a skunk, end up stinking."
Calling someone a cracker mf, whatever your true feelings and justification, only lowers you to that level. Regardless of Ms. Leon's true motivation (and you may well be absolutely right), she did not call hin a danmf. Your actions here put you right in with all the thinking you often decry.

Once again, an Obama hater is

Once again, an Obama hater is trying to tell us how to vote. Ms. Leon is ASSuming that we support the issues she raised, the way she supports them. You're so concerned with getting the baby here, then telling him the heck with you after birth. You're not going to have health coverage or any programs that may aid you, until you are financially able.Christain, you calling someone a racist, is a joke. If you were such a christain, you wouldn't judging someone else. Just say you want white president and move on. OBAMA 08!!!!!!!

Ronald Reagan said that every dollar the government spends must first be taken from someone else. RCR...I have health insurance, so the only way we can get it for those who don't is to take the money from me and from people like me. Franky I don't want to pay for other's health insurance.

RCR, black skin, cradle to grave social support, hard marxist leanings. BO may be a god to some. What do you think? By the bye, you're right about Ms.Leon assuming that everyone has the same concerns as she. She has much different standards then half of this nation. Hypo has it right. This LTE is effectively meaningless.

You can always tell a black

You can always tell a black democrat: 1. You're a racist 2. Give me, Give me, Give me 3. Government programs 4. Income redistibution (take from have's and give to have not's)

White Republican: 1. Work hard and make wise decisions and you'll most likely do well. 2. Keep government out of my business. 3. No grandmothers raising our children

The bottom line is, you guys

The bottom line is, you guys don't want black person in the White House. You spend so much time analysing Obama, that you don't really care what the others believe in, because they are white. You poor suckers are always talking about blacks want something from you and you don't have nothing yourselves. What about the millions of whites who are on some of these programs? What you need to do is tell our leaders, to stop spending billions per day in Iraq and use that money at home.Either way , I believe Obama can win without you. OBAMA 08!!!!

"you don't have nothing

"you don't have nothing yourselves." That would mean that we DO have something. And to answer your question.... most of the millions of whites on the programs you mentions are moochers as well. The difference is in percentages. A FAR smaller percentage of the white population is on the programs than the black population, but I still make no excuses for either.

RCR, see you can't help it

RCR, see you can't help it admit it, your voting for Obama just because he's black. Your just like most blacks when it comes to voting. Your one of those who would put Marion Berry, Ed Mcintyre, Charles Walker back in office because the WHITE MAN put him in jail. Has nothing to do with breaking the law, does it.

Bill...(D)esperate (A)ctions

Bill...(D)esperate (A)ctions of a (C)hristian (M)ilitaristic (F)ool. What is all this nonsense about kicking skunks...these folk want a theocracy right here in America. That is THE FURTHEST from what the founders intended...you Repubs need to kick them out of your party and let them start their theocrat party and you'll move toward the middle (not in the middle, but toward) where there is consensus and we can begin to champion our similarities and not our differences. You would probably get my vote on a lot of things, just your fringe scares me more than my fringe...

Wasted energy day after day on here. The same people beating the next person down. Take the energy and help a child read. Start a neighborhood association. Clean around your own back door. Someone will get in the White house, right or wrong. Now get to the polls and there your voice will be heard.

Obama is right, you poor suckers are bitter. Look in the mirror dude, blacks are not the reason you're loser. Admit it you are voting for McCain because he is white. Most of you can't stand John McCain, but at least he is white. You are not fooling no one, but yourselves.OBAMA 08!!!!!!

RichmondCountyResident, I'd

RichmondCountyResident, I'd vote for Alan Keyes, but please, ... Obama in the White House? There is a difference between candidates beside the color of their skin. It is their political views that make the candidate worthy or unworthy of our vote. When candidates such as Obama & Hillary espouse their plans for their administration a majority of voters are never going to elect such vermin to lead this "Great Nation." We enjoy the side show and rhetoric but in November when we enter the polling booth our common senses return and send a devastating loss to the Democrats' political leadership(pers).

My God! RCR. Let's examine

My God! RCR. Let's examine what you wrote. "blacks are not the reason you're loser." What does that mean anyway? Next-- "You are not fooling no one" That would mean that we are fooling EVERYONE. You need to brush up on the English language. You want people to admit that they are voting for McCain because he is white, yet you refuse to admit that the only reason you are voting for Obama is that he is black. Well let me tell you something. If Clinton wins the nomination, I'm still voting for McCain.....do you think it's becasue he's MORE white? Of course not.

Maybe the real reason RCR want's Obama as President is that he may nominate his terrorist buddy Bill Ayers to be Secretary of State.......nah...it's because he's black. He's too ill-informed to know about Ayers anyway.
