What the hell is Obama trying to hide?
You don't dare ask Obama to explain his past statements. You don't dare seek accountability from him for his past actions, or inactions. You'll be branded as negative, mean, vindictive. Now, this doesn't mean the other candidates don't get put under the microscope - that's all well and fine - every word scrutinized. But not for Obama. He is to be above accountability. Above questioning. But why this strategy? Think. Obama's camp doesn't want questions about the past, that's what they try to kill with this, questions. But is all the faux outrage (reminiscent of the cheney's reaction to Kerry mentioning that their daughter is gay) just a smoke screen, a diversion? Why would Obama, when faced with questions, divert and deflect and make the issue "negative" campaigning? Obviously, there are questions he doesn't want to answer. That would be the only logical reason for the self-righteous dismissal of anything that is not glowing praise for Obama. Which leads me to wonder, what the hell is he trying to hide?

1. What in the world are you talking about?
When has he ducked a question about his past?

3. Don't worry, I've figured this sneaky character out. I know exacty what he's hiding.
He's worse than McCain. Apparently he has not one but TWO black children from a long-standing love affair with a known litagator.

4. Isn't obvious?
In the 1970s, Obama was smokin' crack with a ho when he got violent, smacked her around and then accidently killed her. If anyone can't see that, they're obviously blind.

11. No body and I mean no body
has ever asked him why he misses so darn many votes. I can't understand that, don't you think it would be an issue. He is forever harping on Clinton because she voted for the IWR and the Kyl-Liberman resolution. And damned if he didn't miss the Kyl-Liberman -- as usual.

12. It is strange that Obama has gotten so little scrutiny....
but Hillary has and Edwards has. He was attacked non-stop for his house and haircuts.
Obama gets a pass because the powers that be want to stick us with a loser candidate (Obama).

15. You're asking him to prove a negative.
How do you suggest one goes about doing that to your satisfaction?

Yeah, I was on the debate team, too.

19. Exactly! And that's precisely what Sen. Clinton meant when she said that
she had been attacked by Obama and Edwards for months, without them having to account for themselves or answer questions about themselves.
