153. Thank you. I see little point in electing another Bush, Republican OR Democrat
And if Obama keeps taking Republican positions and flipflopping like McCain, what's the difference? How can we trust Obama's word on ANYthing if he doesn't stick to it consistently? I want to know what he really stands for and how really stands for it -- or not -- BEFORE I vote for him. I see no benefit to our party or our country to wearing blinders. It will hurt us in the long run.

To those who insist on getting Obama elected first, I think that is backwards. I want to make sure he is somebody I WANT to get elected first. Obama has positioned himself as a candidate of change, but too often when he is put to the test, he acts more like a weathervane who points backward as well as forward. At this point I don't trust him not to keep caving to Bush's interests even if he gets elected. Exactly WHY did he cave on FISA?

If the occupant of the White House is going to be somebody who is going to screw us over, and I really don't trust Obama at this point not to do that, since he already HAS, I'd just as soon it be a Republican whom I DIDN'T vote for.
