Don't go changing the question because you realized you failed. You asked why no one has renounced Wright in here. Although almost everyone has, your memory is weak my friend.

Yet you posted another preacher with delight that he was attacking Obama. When are you going to renounce the video you posted?

And let's not forget that Obama has renounced Wright...

but let's forget about that and stick to the real important issues like crackpot theories on birth certificates...

Republicans are desperate, so they will cling on to anything right now...
So my ex-husband, because his father was stationed in the military, could not run for President because he was born in Germany? Or is the military base on foreign soil considered American soil?

A U.S. military base on foreign soil is considered American soil, so he's still safe

Oh, that's good to know. I didn't understand what the big deal was, but I guess I can kind of get it now.


PolitiFact | Obama's birth certificate: Final chapter

Quote:
And there’s the rub. It is possible that Obama conspired his way to the precipice of the world’s biggest job, involving a vast network of people and government agencies over decades of lies. Anything’s possible.

But step back and look at the overwhelming evidence to the contrary and your sense of what’s reasonable has to take over.

There is not one shred of evidence to disprove PolitiFact’s conclusion that the candidate’s name is Barack Hussein Obama, or to support allegations that the birth certificate he released isn’t authentic.

And that’s true no matter how many people cling to some hint of doubt and use the Internet to fuel their innate sense of distrust.

Do we agree that the candidates should be voted for on policy then?

Her silence on that topic is deafening.

Perhaps Obama's visit was not only to visit her but tie down a few loose ends-who knows.

How come Obama's maternal grandmother stated he was born in Kenya?

and yet, questions about Sarah's mysterious pregnancy is the province of far left looney tunes ... oh, the irony.

Probably just to give you fodder so you could yammer on about idiotic stuff like this.

She must really dig you.

There's an e-mail being passed around that a Pennsylvanian judge ordered Obama to show his birth certificate to prove he was born in the U.S.

The fear of Obama becoming president has reached hysteria.

Did you notice that Sting disappears when his guys are losing? For example, McCain took a turn and boom....no Sting.

Go back to the Iraq war....when all the looting and screw ups were happening....no Sting.

Hmmmmm......

Just an observation.

I was in a bar last night with a friend having a couple of beers. There was a guy sitting next to us, in a suit, having a drink, mumbling to himself, and shaking visibly. I wondered what was so terribly wrong that this guy was in this condition.
Then I heard him yelling to the bartender that he can't believe this country is going to elect a muslim, arab, n-word to the white house.
I waited to see if the bartender, an Irish guy, would say anything. He just nodded and said "I hear ya".


Racism. It's everywhere.

Empathy and compassion are EVIL. I think they might even be Communist beliefs. Obama like the gay And the disabled too. Run for your lives!


CBS News

(CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO.) - Taking the stage as one of the pre-program speakers at a Sarah Palin rally here in Rush Limbaugh’s hometown, Sen. Kit Bond, R-Missouri, fired up the crowd by warning them about Barack Obama’s judicial philosophy.

“Just this past week, we saw what Barack Obama said about judges,” Bond said. “He said, ‘I’m tired of these judges who want to follow what the Founding Fathers said and the Constitution. I want judges who have a heart, have an empathy for the teenage mom, the minority, the gay, the disabled. We want them to show empathy. We want them to show compassion.’”

Bond then seized on Obama’s comments to Joe The Plumber, saying the Democrat wants to redistribute wealth.

“He thinks this country should be a government—not a government of laws, but a government of compassion and empathy, not of laws,” Bond said.

Bond was referring to Obama's answer to "Joe the Plumber's" question earlier this month "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?"

"It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too," Obama said on Oct. 12 in Holland, Ohio. "My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

Palin is scheduled to take the stage in just a few minutes, but there are still thousands of people in line outside waiting the Show-Me Center.

After this event, Palin heads to Erie, Pennsylvania, for a closed national security roundtable and a rally. She’ll end her day with a rally in Williamsport, home of the Little League World Series.
