McCain v. Obama
« on: October 16, 2008, 07:53:23 PM »
Obama scares me.  He reminds me of FDR, LBJ and the Great Society gone wild.

The last thing we need right now is big government.  McCain will exercise government to reform our out of control society and big business.  Obama seems like he just wants to increase welfare and give it all away.

We can't afford a give-it-away Democrat President in conjunction with a Democratic Congress.  This country needs to tighten its belt and clean up our excesses.

McCain is our best hope, not Obama.

Why does Obama scare you?  Is it because he is a black man and well educated?  I am sick and tired of the hidden racism in this country.  Well, I have news for you.
Obama is leading the polls and will become the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  Sorry, it is time for a change so get used to it. Obama is about bringing all people together and to take this country into a positive direction.
Obama is for making life better for all people.  If that means reforming the welfare system, then that is what we should do.  It will only make this country better by helping the poor.

McCain issues are the same ones that we have been dealing with for the past eight years.

McCain scares me, not Obama.

If Marty is scared because Obama is black, then he has no reason to be scared.  Obama is NOT black, he is in fact only aprox. 6.75% black.  Check out his lineage and you will see that he has more white than black in him.  So he will not be the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, but then again this kind of knowledge does not win votes, so therefore he allows everyone to call him as such.  His true heritage lies within the roots of a rather militant and rebellious group of radical Islamics from Kenya. (or so I have been told)  ;D :D ;) :D ;D :)

No, not because he is black.  Because he wants to give away the store.  I appreciate your viewpoint, but see things differently, and not because I'm white and he is black.

Marty,

Obama is not trying to give away the store, he is trying to help everyone.  Especially the less fortunate.

We should always help the less fortunate.  I have no argument with you on that.  The question is how much.

It was because of trying to help the less fortunate (Democratic and Republican policies of the past) that we got into this mess we are in now.  In our current situtation, the less fortunate were those that wanted to own a home but couldn't afford one.  See where that landed us?

Sorry Marty.

That is incorrect. There were some COMPANIES in the mortgage business trying to profit which they did and that is where the problem started.  GREED!!!!!!

Duh I thought mortgage companies and banks were in business to make a profit. That why they charge interest.

Greed Sasha you should take a closer look at the role the democrats played in the mortgage collapse. The same democrats you have been blindly voting for.

Sasha,
Are you voting for him because he looks black or because you are collecting a welfare check?
Obama is more white than black. (This is a fact) People around here would call him "high yeller".
 I do agree that he is handsome and very smooth, but I am not going to be fooled by appearances.
I do believe in welfare, food stamps and medicaid.
I also know that while some people can't find a job, they have figured out how to file in several states and screw the government.
Why should the wealthy take a penalty for being successful?
 What do you think class wars will accomplish?
I know plenty of welfare scum that don't even try to better themselves. They just have more babies to up their check while their parents raise the kids.

Are you from Georgetown or Harlem?

That YouTube link is so telling.  People vote for personalities and rarely understand the issues. 

Regarding Democrats and Republicans and who allowed this train wreck to occur, both are to blame.  The Democrats encouraged home loans to people that couldn't afford them, and the Republicans pushed to remove the investment restrictions placed on banks during the Great Depression.  Combine that with a long period where interest rates essentially equaled zero (thanks to Alan Greenspan) and we have the worst of capitalism and greed.

This link is very interesting.  It reviews each of the presidential candidates and their views. You pick the statements which you most agree with, and at the end it tells you whose views are most like yours.

Who cares if you leave the country if OBAMA wins.....leave now.  I don't know where you have been, but OBAMA is leading the polls.  No matter who wins we
still have to work together towards a better country.  Can't we all just get along.
Moving away does not solve the issues.  Bye....Bye.  Hope that you have a better
life wherever you go.

well, folks, i am white, 62, not on welfare, with a pretty nice retirement, ad nauseam, and  i will be voting for obama.  i don't think mccain has much to worry about here in south carolina where i have lived for the past 59 years).  most south carolinians  (at least the white ones), will not wrassle with the decision to vote too much.  however, it really doesn't make a damn if they vote for mccain.  unfortunately for the sc repukes, there are enough folks in this country who have had enough with the past 8-years of the busheviks to even consider for a moment extending their run for another four years.   

so all you good ole boys better start gettin' used to having a mixed breed president who is a lot smarter than you are.  one who will surround himself with more folks who are smarter than you are.

afdip, no doubt Obama would put smart people into place.  What scares me is that he, and McCain, are both ignoring the looming crisis of the Baby Boomer Generation.  More social programs, not less, are on the horizon if Obama wins.  I would expect McCain to be more willing to give us the straight talk on the medicine we need, and be the stingy Uncle we need to pull away the punch bowl.  Obama appears to be more willing to take us to financial ruin, as if we weren't on that road already.

I see nothing but a worse economy under Obama.  Either of them would have terrible challenges, but Obama's giveaways and re-establishment of a welfare state would make it even worse for us all.

no mention of your man's policy for dealing with economic reality.  sounds like he wants to ignore demographic and economics.  but he is of course in good company.  so have the rest of our so called political leaders.

That's funny stuff.  Thanks Rodney King.  And no, we will never all just get along.  We would have to work together to make America work, but I don't see it happening with the current form of government.  I'm actually leaving in a couple weeks (job related) no matter who wins.  My statement was made in jest.  Thanks again for the wishing me well.  At Church I would say "and also with you."

Of course, let's not forget that Obama agreed to accept public funding for his race, which would have limited his war chest.  He then decided against it.  Flipflop or lies, take your pick.  I'm still yearning for someone with real guts like Ron Paul.

the whole birth certificate thing is barking up the wrong tree.  for heavens sake, McCain was born in Panama, but of American parents.  Under the US Code, that makes him a native born American.  Obama had a mother that was a citizen, so he could have been born in Russia and still be considered eligible for the Presidency.

The race is over and OBAMA is now the first black president of the United States.
I knew this day would come to bring everyone together.  What are you going to

Was that God Bless or shall we God Damn the United States as Rev. Wright says?

I always stated that Obama scared me because of his policies.  He still does.  Lest you consider me a racist, I will tell you I voted for Jesse Jackson once in a Presidential primary in Georgia.

Obama has created a huge wellspring of hope in the people that voted for him.  I'm afraid the hopes of these people will be dashed against the hard rocks of economic reality as the crisis we are still in unfolds.

Or as the New York Times says today:

"As a result, the shift from campaign trail rhetoric to halls-of-governance reality could prove turbulent. And Mr. Obama’s soaring speeches have created such a well of anticipation that there is a deep danger of letdown."  Full article here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/05/us/politics/05ahead.html

God Bless him and the United States.  He and we will need it.  We don't need the politics of Rev. Wright.

Well Marty,
The race is over and OBAMA is now the first black president of the United States.
I knew this day would come to bring everyone together.  What are you going to
do now since you stated that he scares you?  God Bless America!!!!!!!!!!!!
I too, fear that America is in for a great surprise.  Obama's politics put us on the path to becoming The United Socialist Republic of America.
As for him being the "first black president", well.......Thomas Jefferson was almost as black as Obama is.  Obama is a lot more mix than he is black, it just seemed popular to be black in this election;  had the winds been blowing in a different direction, he (as well as the media) would have gone to great lengths to emphasize the whiter side of his heritage. 
Not since the Richard M. Nixon / John F. Kennedy televised debate, has the mainstream media gone to such great lengths to blindsidedly help elect a presidential candidate.
God Bless us all, and let us pray that we are not being forced to read the Koran and pray to the Dog Allah, before the next 4 years are over.

Afdip believe it or not southerns are not as closed minded as you make them out to be. The next step in this merry journey is the press that was in the bag for Obama in going to turn on him. Obama will play the race card, The democratic controlled congress will start to realize the great power they have and the lobbiest money will start to flow. The congress will overregulate and depress this econimy resulting in a great maliase.
AFDIP like all typical well off citizens will figure out how to put his money in a off shore account or tax shelters so he  can continue to enjoy his  lifestyle (Burmuda sure is expensive), and the middle class will pay out the nose so the disadvantage will not have to pay for there gas or mortgage.
This democrat cycle will not last as long as the last. I see republicans making gains in two years in the house and senate.

So AFDIP if a southern person or any person who does not drink the Koolaide of Obama like you have drank it ,will we all be labeled bigots. I guess you also believe in the Fairness Doctrine typical

i know not all southerners are not bigots.  i'm a southerner.  i'm also not particularly wealthy and have no 'offshore accounts.'  my statement was solely aimed at the fallacious argument made by justified.  if you, whatzzup, are incapable of following a thread like that, southern/northern/black/white/asian, you're in trouble.  i did like thomas friedman's comment in the ny times this morning that, the civil war finally ended last night when obama was declared the next president of the usa.  perhaps now the south can start inching toward the 20th century.

Thank you adfip, for stepping down from your throne and enlightening us with your great wisdom.  However, I think it is you who cannot follow the thread. 
I have no problem with the man's color or to be more accurate his mixed up montage of colours.
  I do have a problem with his stance on political and socio-economic issues.
 And I also have a problem with people like sasha who made his color the issue for voting for him.
Oh, and lest I forget, thou art the one full of shite.
On the brighter side, this country is in such a mess right now, that almost anything would have to be an improvement. 
And if things do get worse, the republicans get to say I told you so; and if things get better then the democrats get to say I told you so.
 Either way, somebody's happy, somebody's not, and you will still be a horse's arse attempting to belittle those you disagree with.

Where does all this passive aggressive anger come from.  62 years of age  and acting like an angry child.....so sad.  You're in the waning stage of life, you should take what little time you have left and try to be happy.
