Voting, Obama and failing economy

I have a few comments and thoughts that I would like to share with readers.

One, I have Hispanic friends. They are great people! However, I resent the fact that voter information is sent out in any language other than English. Citizens are supposed to know our language, culture and history.

Two, I believe it was the London Daily Mail that exposed Obama for lying in his two books about family background and history. What is he ashamed of? We are all immigrants and none of us have "snow-white" unblemished family histories.

Three, I would promise to prosecute the folks that "Enron-ed" our mortgage banking system, drill for oil; convert 85 percent of U.S. automobiles to run on natural gas; and not pick on capable women!

And lastly, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Chris Dodd the recipient of the highest contributions from both failed outfits, Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae? And, wasn't Barack Hussein Obama the No. 2 recipient, in spite of the few years he has been in the Senate? What is that horrible smell?

    The sooner you realize that Obama is the front person for the Daley Machine the sooner you'll realize McCain is the better person for the job.

    Bob, Ones perspective of the candidates is determined by what one considers to be the most accurate assessment of the candidates. The alphabet channels have skirted many qustionablethings about Obama that they would never skirt about McCain. If you really took the time to analyzethe candidates, Obama's charisma is his driving force and McCain's substance is his driving force. It doesn't take rocket science to figure this out.

    Brian, it would be cool to sit down with you, a couple pies, and a case of our favorite coldies and watch the debate.

It will be quite clear tonite who has a fundamental understanding of the issues. And it's not Barry.

    My first advice to pres. Obama would be to steer clear of any plans to re-implement the "Fairness Doctrine". This would only add more salt to the wound.He needs to do everything he can to cross the aisle and unify the parties.Limiting the free speech of conservative radio would only empower the new media and bloggers even more.Maybe, on the other hand, this form of political suicide is what the left needs to realize most Americns tend to be conservative in nature.

    Larry, Yes Obama was the no. 2 recipient. That smell you are referring to? It's the Chicago Daley Machine, of course. The liberal media is doing everything it can to keep Barack's skeletons well secured in the closet.Barack is trying to distance himselffrom Daley. But he knows if it wasn't for Daley and his influence he would be nowhere near where he is now in politics. Oh how Barrack wishes he had not taken the path with unsavory characters. Conservative talk radio is making sure those skeletons work their way out of the closet. It's going to make for an interesting 4 years if he gets elected. I'm sure Rush is licking his chops. Perhaps he'll call it "America Held Hostage II". :)

    I'm afraid the "horrible smell" is your own breath blowing back in your face.
