Shit in one hand, "Hope" in the other; see which fills first.
Many here know my true feelings. I would just as soon see the ENTIRE SLATE of Democratic Candidates fall into an Antarctic Crevase as see even ONE of them get elected. We had "Curly" from the 3 Stooges in the person of Bush as President, AND THIS IS THE FUCKING BEST WE COULD DO????? This election will go down in HISTORY in the "OOOOH crap, we BLEW it," column, even if the party candidate wins.

They have all backtracked on Progressive Values. ALL OF THEM; but...there is ONE who stands out in his lack of TRUE Democratic Party Credentials, from Reagan kissing to Republican coddling...and his major theme??? Hope.

I am sick to death of hearing about "HOPE HOPE HOPE HOPE"

FUCK hope. I judge on ACTIONS, and Obama's "Actions" have been "la de da, I'm looking the other way, they're Christians, and I need the support, la de da." "OOPSY, they've done everything they can to DESTROY the Democratic Party but hey, them ol' Republicans ain't so bad...I wanna work WITH THEM, not against them!"

Obama has played his "Tee Shot" better than Arnold Palmer. You can't catch him in a DIRECT lie (with the exception of the REZKO issue, but that on another day). So has he REALLY LIED to us? Well......

Obama is not a liar, he is a man of "Half Lies," which, to me, is infinitely WORSE.
Attributed to Spencer Dryden, head of the "Arab Bureau" during WWI; one of the men responsible for the continued Imperialism in Arabia:

"A man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it."

He KNOWS the truth, because he is not an idiot, but he no longer remembers where he has put it.

I do not support him, and I revile him for his veiled support of bigotry; vile even if in attempting to obtain political support. His only use to me is, if he is the candidate and does take the election, is that his obvious incompetence and "Everybody LOVE me" including the Republicans will likely screw things up so badly that he will hasten MY Hope:

"Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out," and hasten the Political Change that MUST happen to finally bring PEACE, and the end to all BIGOTRY. Wake up, and smell the coffee.

NOW let the flames begin.

2. You and your support of someone who gives tacit support to Republicans and bigots..
DISGUSTS me.

If you don't want to read it, and your "OBAMAISM" is so total, then there are plenty of other threads. May I strongly suggest you go there?

8. You know, I should support ALL of your mediocre, naive candidates.
It will just hurry the revolution along. So I take it back: RAH, RAH, SIS BOOM BAH! BRING ON BARACK!!!!

Maybe, just maybe it might help bring about the REAL change in my lifetime through his incompetence and half lies.

5. I suggest you read something else as well.
The lack of awareness around here is becoming disgusting.

If you loved this guy as much as you all seem to, you would be SCREAMING at him to lose his veiled bigotry, and not to even CONSIDER working with the Party responsible for Scalia, Alito, Roberts, Gonzales, Watt, Thomas, Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeldt......
