  • Denese: Senator Obama you must win. The Republicans have been trying to silence the media by crying wolf. I hope the American public can see thru their hypocrisy, prejudice and lies. They are trying so hard to bully the media into silence, as Americans we should not allow this to happen. They should not be allowed to silence the voices of the people. I am a Christian and I am tired of watching these people hide behind Christianity to divide and foster hate among the people of this fine country. What kind of moral message is Sarah Palin sending to millions of teenagers across this Land when she parades her 17 year old pregnant daughter before the world?

As a Barack Obama supporter AND a christian, I am ashamed that you so-called "christians" put out all of this dis-information and spread lies and hate monger. Shame on YOU!

  • Michelle: Hi Barack & Michelle! I believe WE CAN! I know WE CAN & WE WILL Change the face of America to the world. PLEASE Keep speaking the truth. The powers that be will try to manipulate /brainwash people into thinking you are not the candidate for the People and they will do this through the media/creating negativity and by expressing the thoughts of ignorant people who view color/ethnicity/religion as a standard of choosing the candidate instead of one's intergrity and intelligence. Have you noticed how laid back McCain is, as if he already knew that he is going to be President? I find him strange and view him as another "puppet" just like Mr. Bush, who won the election by cheating- If...

  • Mike: Im getting trier of Republican attacks and smears and even more tired of Democrats taking it and not responding. McCain has no problem with smears and I fail to see why the Democrats dont ask him WHY the VC called McCain the songbird. Run a few ads like that and McCain's supposed hero status goes away. Ask him why he worked so hard to seal the records of his fellow POWS. He wants to bring up that he didn't have a kitchen table and all the other crap on Leno then by God bring up his VC nickname!!! Expose this fake hero for what he really was. Fifth from the bottom of his class. We don't need any more dumb Presidents. I swear if BO don't do this then he is going to lose against the rRp...

  • Howard S. Snowden: Senator, It was such an honor to meet you last night, my son and daughter were thrilled to meet you as well.

  • sheila: I have been looking for a candidate for over 40 years that brings this much promise to the table... and I'm not speaking of promises voiced, but of the promise he presents to the American people! I've never seen a candidate who motivates and inspires like Barack! He IS concerned about how government is led around by the nose by pacs and lobbyists. Barack will not take any contributions from either of them! He specifically states that, and you have to certify that you are neither to contribute to his campaign online! No matter what issue you support, without the help of government/Congress, all campaign speeches are without backing. Barack brings his backing... the American people who ar...

  • Dr. Susan Jacquin: I know that Barack Obama is a Christian, a man of tolereance and integrity. He is also very bright and will surround himself with the best people in an effort to guide America. I am a psychologist with a great deal of experience analyizing people. Trust me, I only want the best for America and I believe that at this crucial time, Barack Obama is the best choice. I pray that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead will continue to guide Barack and cover his family with peace and grace. Do not be deceived, this man is genuine, not perfect, but willing to give his best to a country that he loves. You will also note tnat he is respectful of the other canidate even though he differs wit...

  • Cervantes: Tuesday, July 15, 2008 Credit for Honesty Department As I was waiting for the subway this morning the following announcement came over the loudspeaker: Red Line train service is running normally. We apologize for the inconvenience. Apparently they meant to apologize for an earlier service disruption but it was just fine the way it came out. The point, for this blog, is that there's one policy decision the Obama administration and the new Congress can collaborate one, along with all of our Democratic governors and legislatures, that will make this nation better and stronger in a whole lot of ways at once, and that's to take a couple of hundred billion dollars a year out of th...

  • Eileen M. Ford: I voted for Obama in the primary but was very disappointed that he opted out of public financing. In my opinion, it's not a "flip-flop" - it's a character issue. I expected much more from him, but unfortunately, politicians do "whatever it takes" to win. Eileen...

  • jon holder: It's simple. If you pander to the stupid middle you will make the people who supported you over clinton regret the choice. Many already have doubts. Man, you got it, Do not blow it! I dispair, because as I see you compromise I am less inclined to vote for you. To Macain's credit, he comes across as honest. You less so the more you appear to appease. While I hope you win, I'm not sure I even care enough to vote. Don't be wishy-washy cause people will hate you. S/s a ambivalient supporter...

  • Betsy Jordan: Hey...will someone, anyone, give me the direct facts to answer the Illuminati video being circulated by people against Barack...my concerns are that I am not answering it with facts, merely with assumptions. I want the facts ... I know that they are there. Also, there was a certain movie circulated by Michael Moore which was a hard-hitting expose against Bush. Bush was elected, and much of what had been warned about the man, became the truth. We need to answer this video now. Anyone who can help me with this answer...I welcome it. Please email me. Thank you!...

  • Julia Smith, MBA: I would like to know why the office of the President does not uphold the policy of not discriminating based on race, ethnicity or religion. While I love Barack and voted for him in the primaries he is beginning to sound like a politician. This whole mockery of my intelligence is turning me off from the whole election. As for Rev. Wright, it is not like he is speaking untruths, America needs to wake up and smell the coffee. This country suffers from recurrent amnesia and anyone who brings up the past is some how evil. If this isn't the manifestation of the book of Revelations I don't know what is. I personally, would like the media to focus on the real issues, like interest rates across...

  • verita: I would like to say how proud I am of Senitor Barack Oboma and his family. It's ashame that there is still some people who would rather live under these same conditions, than to see someone who is obviously capable of running this country. I wouldn't have Hillary as a crossing guard. You Barack are more than a concorer. I there is no doubt in my mind that you will be the next president of the United States. Lots of Love to you and your family. By the way Mitchelle you and Barack make a good team, and you children are absolutely beautiful....

  • Patty Taggart RN, BSN: I have no doubt about Michelle or Barack's hearts. They bear the fruit of love & giving throughout their lives! New topic-regarding any association with a "Weatherman"..., I am a mother of 6 gorgeous children. My eldest daughter spend 13 months in Bagdad. As a Captain-she commanded 1,000 MPs. I am so proud of her leadership as a soldier. She is also a West Point graduate. In the 60's, I came very close to joining the "Weathermen". At that time in history, it was very important that people stood against the atrosities that were being committed. I am glad that ultimatly I chose peaceful protest, but did not know at the time how violent the protest could become. Thank God for thos...

  • Lear Riojas: Wow, suddenly a person's choice of religous practice is really important. Has anyone reviewed the right wing psycho's our current world leader is alleged to have associated with? However like most sensible voters we let the president speak on his religion for himself, not via some other pastor. Now all of a sudden since people cant find anything wrong with Obama himself, suddenly his church is under attack. It's time to grow up people, Obama denounced his pastor's statements, and the child like Republican machine continue to use it's immature buddies such as Shawn Hannity,and Rush Limbaugh and the Fox Republican network to try to push the Obama campaign into the race discussion. Yet h...

  • Joy in Missouri: When I was a child, our pastor and my own sweet, devout Baptist mother ranted about the evils and dangers of "Catholics!" She went ballistic when she heard that my grandparents voted for Kennedy: "He'll take orders from the Pope!" She told us why bother to play with the Catholic kids down the street, because "they won't be in heaven when you go there anyway." My mother is very loving and sweet, but was raised steeped in religious/cultural fears (including, of course fear and distrust of black people, as well as Catholics). Our minister was like a second father or grandpa to us all, kindly in all ways... and was in his mind trying to warn us of the ruthlessness and dangers of Catholics. ...

  • mary E. Scott: As a mentalhealth professional, Senator Obams sppears to be a man with a healthy ego. He appears to be well balanced an o not have a racst bone in his body. How cold he have hate for his white family who raised him? To do so means that he hates half of himself. As far as I am concerned this was the better half of who he is, after all, reportedly, his father left them when he was two years old. His role model was his white grandfather, who apparently did a great job. As a non-religious person who has studied the history of all of the major religions of the world, what diference does it make what religion he is?...

  • Antonius: Please !!!, From here on, use only VERIFIABLE facts... You may have 900.000 + donations, but maybe not from 900.000 + individuals.... I donated twice, for example. Regarding the last debate: When Hillary was talking quite emotionally about her meeting with an Iraq-vet who had half his face blown off, you could have reminded her that she voted for that war, but maybe that's a little harsh.... True, but harsh... Harsh doesn't work very well, unless you're Donald Trump in a TV programm. Regarding these flyers and Hillaries reaction to them: "Shame on you, Barack Obama..." 1. In debates, you said the same thing and she didn't react in the way she did on TV last night. 2. Maybe...

Charlie Rose - Rahm Emanuel

Barack Obama Muslim?

Is Barack Obama a Muslim?

Here’s a recent email exchange that might shed some light on the subject. First you’ll see the bogus email that is circulating the Net and then a response afterwards:

Obama mentioned his church during his appearance with Oprah. It’s the Trinity Church of Christ. I found this interesting.

Obama’s church:
Please read and go to this church’s website and read what is written there. It is very alarming.
Barack Obama is a member of this church and is running for President of the U.S. If you look at the first page of their website, you will learn that this congregation has a non-negotiable
commitment to Africa. No where is AMERICA even mentioned. Notice too, what color you will need to be if you should want to join Obama’s church… B-L-A-C-K!!! Doesn’t look like his choice of religion has improved much over his (former?) Muslim upbringing.
Are you aware that Obama’s middle name is Mohammed? Strip away his nice looks, the big smile and smooth talk and what do you get? Certainly a racist, as plainly defined by the stated position of his church! And possibly a covert worshiper of the Muslim faith, even today. This guy desires to rule over America while his loyalty is totally vested in a Black Africa!
I cannot believe this has not been all over the TV and newspapers.
This is why it is so important to pass this message along to all of our family & friends. To think that Obama has even the slightest chance in the run for the presidency, is really scary.
Click on the link below:
This is the web page for the church Barack Obama belongs to:

Bob -

Thanks for sending me this. Interesting stuff. I tend to wonder how many of my family and friends have received this but haven’t forwarded it to me for obvious reasons. ;-)

First off, I can tell you that all of these issues have come up several times and I can shed some light on these facts:

* The majority of the claims made in this email stem from a conservative radio host named Bill Cunningham. See this article: http://mediamatters.org/items/200801100003
* His middle name is Hussein, not Mohammed.
* This is the church that he belongs to - the Trinity United Church of Christ.
* Obama is obviously not a practicing Muslim nor is he a racist.

If/when the people that receive this email go to the link that is provided, they would see a video at the bottom of the page. At the end of the video a white woman says “. ..know matter who you are, you’re welcome here.”

To me, emails like this are more of a problem to us as a society than they are to Obama… It just shows you how Internet technology has unleashed the ability for untruths to be easily spread around the country - even the globe - without much fact-checking involved. And an even scarier thing is that most people well pass it along without any hesitation (I’m glad you didn’t).

I kinda think the small/trivial act of forwarding an email becomes much more critical when it contains political or religous content.

Just my .02.

Talk to ya soon,

Shawn

Barack on Monday Night Football

This is the commercial that aired just before a Monday Night Football game in December of 2006. At the time, many people across the country were wondering if Barack would run.

This 60-second spot left the public hanging and fueled the speculation that he would eventually throw his hat in the ring . . .


Barack Bio on Wikipedia

This is a very good and accurate biography if you are looking to learn more about Barack Obama from a neutral source.

“Since announcing his presidential campaign in February 2007, Obama has emphasized ending the Iraq War, increasing energy independence, and providing universal health care as major priorities.[7] He married in 1992 and has two daughters. He has written two bestselling books: a memoir of his youth titled Dreams from My Father, and The Audacity of Hope, a personal commentary on U.S. politics.[8]
