"If you can't say anything nasty, shut up!" Is this the way we feel about
Obama? I thought we were better than the Rethugs. I thought we wanted the truth unclouded by hype and innuendo. The world will be watching Mr. Obama as he represents the DEMOCRAT PARTY. I want him to shine like a bright star and help us regain our international respect and good will. I want America to embrace freedom of thought and expression without fear and smear. I want hope to reign not rain on hope. I want to show the world that we are, indeed, better than the opposition. I want Mr. Obama to supplement the statesmanship and intellect of our candidate, Kerry. I want us to say that we are proud that Kerry had the wisdom and courage to pick Mr. Obama to walk beside him. I want so much for all of us to shut the fuck up for once and LISTEN!!! Understand. Respect. Support. Care. Lead with more noble agendas and more balanced efforts. I want us to WIN!!!!!!!!

11. Oh my........ all morning
Obama made the national talk show rounds this morning and some here are very disappointed that he did not spout the DU party line. There are many threads, many disgusting comments, IMHO.

13. interesting. I want the truth unclouded, too
that's why I want people to start telling the truth.

Even if it makes people "uncomfortable".

I'm pretty "uncomfortable" that our country has been taken over by a bunch of white-collar gangsters.

I'm even more "uncomfortable" that there are so many people who are "uncomfortable" by anybody who wants our LEADERS to politely point this truth out.

But no, I'm a "racist", I'm "insane", "hysterical" and a "Karl Rove wet dream". Oh, and a "gop plant"

:eyes:

17. "He's a traitor and a piece of shit!"

Yes, this is what maggrwaggr called Obama. Although it seems he's loathe to admit now. Why, maggrwaggr?

Accountibility is important when you want people to start telling the truth. Oh my. Truth unclouded, indeed.

16. No such thing as the 'Democrat Party'
It's the Democratic Party. Where did you learn this phrase?
