34. Hillary HAS SUPPORTED AND HELP PASS more bills for the poor and
the people of her state than Obama. I think the people with sense, the older people have looked at the fact that Obama misses most of the votes, is not passionate about anything but prancing on a stage. If he had a record to run on, if he had been passionate about the poor and needy instead of listening to Liberman, he might stand out as one who would help the poor. The fallacy here is just because he is black he would be more for the poor and needy than any one else, but Obama has shown he is more for special interest. That thing about those lobbyist in his campaign has thrown a lot of people. And his trying to say he was poor 7 years ago and then they find out he bought a 1.5 million dollar home less than a year later makes you wonder about the story.
