201. Anyone that says this is a great post is delusional...
This is nothing more than a hit piece from someone with way too much time on their act as though you can project individuals into situations in the past? Are you even sane? "Obama would have been wetting his bvds?" Are you serious? The Cuban Missle Crisis? Man, if this post can get almost 90 recs then something is seriously wrong.

You then proceed to chastise him for something he had no control over...If he was in the Senate at the time of the IWR, all signs indicate that at least he could have provided some helpful dialogue during the run-up to the war. Both of the other candidates voted to allow the war and also voted yes for all funding so I really don't see the point of this at all.

You state that he is better for Republicans that McCain? Again, this is completely irresponsible and ridiculous. Just because someone wants to bridge the political divide that has pushed our country away from meaningful debate???

Lastly, you're an expert at body language? Then you would most certainly know that body language interpretations vary depending upon the situation and the topic. The body language put forth by Obama is related to his oratory style. You cannot assess deceit from this simple basis at least not scientifically. Set up a methodology for me so that the application is applicable to all candidates, testable, and repeatable...oh wait, you can't as only one candidate gets elected and exposed to the political environment which influences decisions no matter who you are.

This post is utterly irresponsible and would almost be laughable if it weren't filled with such hatred and highly recommended.
