64. Funny, I'm not the only one making similar observations concerning Obama
From your link:

These two paragraphs fit in quite succinctly with the observations I made up thread.. Obama is in the throes of a crash course in running for the presidency. Why doesn't he have specific plans and represents "ZERO" principles on improving life for the Middle Class and the American dream? Simple, He will be Cheney's de facto puppet after the election. Obama doesn't have to think about anything and why he's pushing..."we'll get all different views of fixing a broken system.. bringing people together." That is the biggest line/lie of "Horse sh*t" in his stump speeches.

For my money, this is why BIG media is all PRO-Obama (naysayers silenced at once) because the outcome has been ordered by the Bush owned media. Looks like we've got to brace ourselves for another "STOLEN ELECTION" folks, unless you plan on rolling over and finding out we were right after the fact..

I can tell you right now, I'm not going that route!

"The cost of his soaring rhetoric is a disappointing lack of specific plans. It can be hard at times to tell exactly what Obama stands for, exactly how he plans to carry out his ambitious goals. His stump speeches are riddled with words like change and exhortations to a new approach to politics, but he doesn't talk much, for example, about how to address the gap between the rich and the poor, or how to tackle urban crime and poverty, or whether Israel should stop building settlements in the occupied territories."

"In fact, our biggest problem with Obama is that he talks as if all the nation needs to do is come together in some sort of grand coalition of Democrats and Republicans, of "blue states and red states." But some of us have no interest in making common cause with the religious right or Dick Cheney or Halliburton or Don Fisher. There are forces and interests in the United States that need to be opposed, defeated, consigned to the dustbin of history, and for all of Obama's talk of unity, we worry that he lacks the interest in or ability to take on a tough, bloody fight against an entrenched political foe."
