3. He did not do enough to distance himself from Bush policy. Even most republicans would admit to the fact that the Bush reign of power was a disaster for their party not only from Bush himself but much of his cabinet.

4. The vast majority of people are tired of sinking money into a War in Iraq that either a. shouldn’t have started in the first place or b. should have been completed a long time ago. Over 2 trillion dollars has been spent their alone so far and this cost is still counting.

Obama hasn’t proven anything yet however people decided to give him the chance to change things that have happened. If he can do so it will be a victory but it is going to be a long tough road to dig out of what both the government as well as private business has done over the last 8 years.

After the last 8 years there is noplace to head but up even if its in small steps.

Republicans should blame the people that represent their beliefs for McCains loss this government had some of the widest and deepest spending in US history. This is not what Republican government is supposed to represent. One day they will get their chance again no doubt however they should take a long hard look at themselves as a party and their policys and get back to those basic principles.
i'll add one more He ditched the John McCain of 2000 in favor of a bizarro McCain, pandering to the religious right and showing poor judgment in his choice of VP.

A "McCain of 2000/Lieberman" ticket may have stood a chance.

Hang on a second.... you are accusing Obama supporters of being misinformed or clueless??? What about this excrement of a video then...

YouTube - The McCain-Palin Mob

or

YouTube - Patriotic drunk rednecks


And the video in the original post says "most informed obama voters we could find"... oh really? I'll bet the guy really tried hard to find informed voters!

Those clips, especially the 2nd one, made me a little sick to my stomach. I couldn't even finish the 2nd one.

As for those Deliverance clips, nice job of diverting the attention from the first video I posted of people who're not hillbillies but still are completely clueless!

It's so true isn't it?

That's why people come up with birth certificate theories, believe in shit polls, and ignore their own ignorance...

Thank you for admitting this, acceptance is the first step, next will be to take off the tin foil, and then maybe you can start educating yourself.

Good luck.

Well, the first video wasn't very compelling, exactly, but it got already dissected in another thread.

It boggles the mind that anyone would expect an obvious loaded question such as this to be taken seriously.

I mean, come on people.
