4. He joined the race for president as soon as it suited the Clinton team.
After all, if Al Sharpton wouldn't join

5. Same time Ferraro did, and Shaheen and Hugh Rodham, and Marc Rich
The rules are clear: It is fair to 'slime' your political opponent by associating his or her name with names that the public finds distasteful.

Obama supporters right here on DU do it hundreds of times a day.

In between their posts that complain about Hillary supporters doing the very same thing.

6. The inspiration for Obama's book title and the person who started Obama
on his path of Christianity. He was also the pastor that married the Obama's. So I guess he is a nobody. :crazy:

7. Another red herring. Obama was a Christian before he joined Wright's church in 1992.
The pastor of the church does baptisms for all members of the church. It's not like you shop around for folks to conduct a baptism. This is silly.

17. Those are Obamas talking points, if you have a problem with
that you should contact your candidate about it and not spew forth bullshit here.

16. You had better
admonish Obama because those are almost his words. I am just stating known facts. if your candidate causes you grief you need to take that up with him.

15. I never mentioned that
you Obama supporters are really challenged sometime. Look at what i wrote and find something false. Hmm? Yeah i did not think so. For better or worse those are facts and you have to wear them or deny them.
