I had said to myself on numerous occasions, if Obama ever shows up in the proximity of my neighborhood, (take or leave a few hundred miles) I will go to see him in the flesh. Barack Obama, is like a dream come true for me and my fellow Democrats. He embodies for us, the reason we chose this party over the other big one and all of the smaller ones.

It's not easy being a Progressive, Populist Democrat, especially since the hypnotic propagandizing by Karl Rove, who mesmerized so many Americans with his hypocritical rhetoric that if you don't share his political neoconservative, ideology you are subhuman. He was a master at penetrating minds with nuances such as...

** If you are of low income, you have only yourself to blame.

** If you are uneducated, it's your own fault.

** If you think War is not an answer to a problem, you are un-American.

** If you dare to question the government's role in spying on the people or
arresting people without due process, you are anti-patriotic.

** If you believe TORTURE is wrong, you are siding with the terrorists.

** If you believe state and church should be separate, you are GODLESS AND EVIL.

** And dare to say a word against the McCain/Bush/Cheney practices of
deregulation, no-contract bids and the good ole boys agreement of YOU SCRATCH MY BACK AND I'LL SCRATCH YOURS, Karl Rove and his followers tell you to...' GET THE HELL OUT OF 'THEIR' COUNTRY!'

For eight long years we've had to endure this RAG from those under the Karl Rove influence. They took our flag and turned it into a symbol of bigotry, hatred, xenophobia and opinionated judgement. (I haven't flown my flag outside my home in almost 8 years and I want MY flag's pride back.)

I believe, Barack Obama, will bring back our flag, bring back America's honor, bring back our National Pride and restore OUR America to the country it was created for. ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. In other words, a return to common sense, and lead us out of the Neocon-Twilight Zone we've been living in for eight long, very long years.

Please watch the video from my Jacksonville Florida visit with Barack Obama and share the joy of having two politicians, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, in our midst who possess dignity, hope and integrity, leaders we can trust to bring us THE CHANGE WE HAVE SO LONGED FOR AND DESPERATELY NEEDED! Hope can and will conquer all. i have only one last thought... I HOPE IT'S NOT TOO LATE! thinkingblue



Obama rips McCain in Jacksonville

Returning to the city where John McCain said Monday that the "fundamentals of the economy
are strong," Barack Obama told 12,000 people (and up to 8,000 more outside the
fence) in Jacksonville this afternoon that he is best equipped to get the
country out of the economic meltdown.

-- "We can’t steer ourselves out of this crisis with a driver who wants to go
the same way -- into the ditch. And that’s what this election is all about."

-- "The events of this week have shown that the stakes of this election could
not be higher, they could not be clearer."

-- "I think it’s pretty clear Sen. McCain is a little panicked. At this point
he’s willing to say anything, do anything, change any position."

-- "Don’t believe those commercials. I'm a tax cutter. I'm going to put some
money in your pockets."

My father use to say that we may never know the extent of the damaged that the Regan administration did to our country, and that may indeed be
true. However, it is abundantly clear that we will not only know the
extent of damage the Bush Administration has done to our country, but also pay dearly for it.

His traitorous puppet masters walk with millions and billions, and leave the result of their irresponsible greed to our nation’s children and grandchildren to pay. For this first time in my adult life, I am truly ashamed of my country’s leadership, and I believe they and their puppet master should be tried for treason against
our nation and spend the rest of their dishonorable lives in prison.

May God have mercy on all of us. Posted by: September 20, 2008 at 04:28 PM

Democratic presidential contender Sen. Barack Obama returned to Florida, Friday, with a slate of non-public events, including a meeting with
reporters in downtown Jacksonville and later a private fundraiser. Obama talked to the media during a sun-scorched press conference -where he hammered Republican opponent Sen. John McCain on offshore oil drilling- at the Riverwalk
along the St. Johns River. Obama is scheduled to address a gathering of U.S. mayors in Miami, Saturday

If Obama Loses Racism is the only reason McCain might beat him.

Barack Obama

What with the Bush legacy of reckless war and economic mismanagement, 2008 is a
year that favors the generic Democratic candidate over the generic Republican
one. Yet Barack Obama, with every natural and structural advantage in the
presidential race, is running only neck-and-neck against John McCain, a sub-par
Republican nominee with a list of liabilities longer than a Joe Biden monologue.
Obama has built a crack political operation, raised record sums, and inspired
millions with his eloquence and vision. McCain has struggled with a fractious
campaign team, lacks clarity and discipline, and remains a stranger to charisma.
Yet at the moment, the two of them appear to be tied. What gives?

If it makes you feel better, you can rationalize Obama's
missing 10-point lead on the basis of Clintonite sulkiness, his slowness in
responding to attacks, or the concern that Obama may be too handsome, brilliant,
and cool to be elected. But let's be honest: If you break the numbers down, the
reason Obama isn't ahead right now is that he trails badly among one group,
older white voters. He does so for a simple reason: the color of his skin.

Much evidence points to racial prejudice as a factor that could be large enough
to cost Obama the election. That warning is written all over last month's
CBS/New York Times poll, which is worth examining in detail if you want a quick
grasp of white America's curious sense of racial grievance. In the poll, 26
percent of whites say they have been victims of discrimination. Twenty-seven
percent say too much has been made of the problems facing black people.
Twenty-four percent say the country isn't ready to elect a black president. Five
percent of white voters acknowledge that they, personally, would not vote for a
black candidate.
