71. Neither can they, in some instances

There are people who "can't quite put their finger on it", but are uncomfortable with Obama.

The emotional reason why is not even apparent to them.

  - Wow.... eom  mscuedawg   Oct-08-08 12:11 PM   #1 
  - That's... disturbing.  PeaceNikki   Oct-08-08 12:16 PM   #2 
  - doesn't make the point any less true...  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:17 PM   #3 
     - I doubt it'll "convince" anyone either.  PeaceNikki   Oct-08-08 12:18 PM   #4 
        - Maybe not.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:19 PM   #5 
           - Or, rather, what kind of person *you* really are.  Occam Bandage   Oct-08-08 12:24 PM   #15 
              - I didn't say most people.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:34 PM   #33 
  - What a great way to drive away potential voters  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:19 PM   #6 
  - Agreed.  PeaceNikki   Oct-08-08 12:20 PM   #8 
  - It's neither. It's a truism.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:22 PM   #12 
     - No- I don't know that. Your premise is false- not true.  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:24 PM   #16 
     - No, my premise is absolutely true.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:26 PM   #18 
        - No, it's rather obvious that you're not.  Occam Bandage   Oct-08-08 12:28 PM   #23 
        - Well, that's how you see it.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:30 PM   #28 
        - Your baseless accusations of racism only hurt this campaign  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:30 PM   #26 
        - It's not baseless.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:30 PM   #29 
           - It is absolutely baseless unless the person has let you know they are voting on race  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:35 PM   #36 
           - All I can say is that I have...  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:40 PM   #44 
           - You cannot be sure that every particular undecided voter is racist.  Occam Bandage   Oct-08-08 12:36 PM   #37 
              - But I NEVER said or insinuated that.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:37 PM   #40 
              - Yes- you did insinuate that.  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:39 PM   #43 
              - NO... No I didn't.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:40 PM   #45 
                 - Your post and the picture with it clearly says that anyone unsure about Obama is a racist  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:46 PM   #52 
                    - It is open to interpretation. That is how you interpret it.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:48 PM   #59 
              - "There's something about him" is way, way too broad, and all those people  Occam Bandage   Oct-08-08 12:41 PM   #46 
                 - There, I took out the "send this to them" part.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:43 PM   #49 
              - Neither can they, in some instances  jberryhill   Oct-08-08 01:23 PM   #71 
                 - Thank You.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 01:28 PM   #72 
        - Dupe.  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:30 PM   #27 
     - Just because you BELIEVE it to be true does not make it true.  KitchenWitch   Oct-08-08 12:31 PM   #30 
        - I seem to remember a lot of people on here saying the same thing a month ago.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:35 PM   #35 
  - No, not all of them.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:21 PM   #9 
  - Calling people racists for not aving made a decision will certainly turn them from you  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:25 PM   #17 
  - Again, you missed the premise.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:27 PM   #20 
     - Again I will say, your picture would only harm our campaign  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:34 PM   #34 
        - Well then I guess it's a good think I'm not working for the Obama campaign.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:36 PM   #39 
           - No- the message is not true  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:45 PM   #51 
              - I have edited the text in the OP.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:47 PM   #53 
                 - I still say the same thing- You are entitled to your opinion  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:49 PM   #61 
                    - Yes, but as the creator it is MY opinion that determines meaning.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:51 PM   #63 
  - "There is just something about him"...  MonteLukast   Oct-08-08 12:27 PM   #22 
     - Well, then if that's the case, then those people are just pathetic.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:32 PM   #31 
  - Agreed.  patrice   Oct-08-08 12:22 PM   #10 
  - lighten up. the pic is hilarious!  Blu Dahlia   Oct-08-08 12:36 PM   #38 
  - As a to-the-choir joke, it's funny.  Occam Bandage   Oct-08-08 12:38 PM   #41 
  - So don't use it. Don't send it out.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:42 PM   #47 
  - Nope I won't lighten up- this sort of crap is racist in itself  Marrah_G   Oct-08-08 12:47 PM   #54 
     - Yes... White on White crime.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:49 PM   #60 
  - yes, insulting people... really a great last minute tactic... *sigh*  Essene   Oct-08-08 02:16 PM   #74

  - Man, that's creepy. Please don't send that to anyone unless  Occam Bandage   Oct-08-08 12:22 PM   #11

  - Yes I know it's not the best photoshop job in the world.  demdog78   Oct-08-08 12:24 PM   #14 
  - It's not what it looks like so much... and that's the point... it's the message  wowimthere   Oct-08-08 12:44 PM   #50
