We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's thin for a guy his age, compared to most people I know. It is not apparent that he ever had a real job in the real world - but neither did Bill Clinton: WaPo. Narcissists hate to compete in the real world, because they might not win.
On the other hand, few people who really do things go into politics. They seem to be the exceptions.
Hey, you referring to the junior Senator from Illinois, a state that has proudly produced more hacks than any other. You can also credit the junior Senator from New York with having Illinois roots--her former family residence is not far from my home as a matter of fact.
We know that Senator Obama has achieved a stellar reputation for his outstanding absenteeism--making him less prone to vote for yet another bill that will lead us further along the road to totally infantilizing every adult in the U.S. So, please, give credit where credit is due!
A mulatto* who calls himself black. A CV tissue thin. A constitutencies so vacuous as to care not a whit for asking the details of this ultra liberal (ADA rating 98%+) "change.
Internationally naive at a time when that one flaw could prove fatal to our entire nation.
Obama can be summed up in one word. It's his only observable known attribute. He is glib . Now glib is good if you're a used car salesman or a stockbroker but the leader of the free world needs rectitude and bedrock guiding principles, not a cocaine usage background, perhaps one where he dealt cocaine or crack thus supporting the known terrorist world. Face it we know nothing of this guy or his proposed "changes" He refuses to define them.
We don't need Obama in the WH.
*mulatto. Currently unacceptable definition of a half white , half black person. PC intolerant. Linguistically accurate but a no no if one wants to remain PC.
