Amazing. The guy lies three times in a row through his smiling teeth, and everybody goes, "Aw-w-w.."

Slick Willy's got nothing on Beguiling Barack.

Remember all the wonderful things he said about his father?

In his autobiographical book "Dreams from My Father," Obama paints a heroic picture of his father as having emerged from a poor Kenyan village, where he was nothing more than a simple goat herder, to become a Harvard-educated economist, destined to return to Africa to fulfill his promise.

In reality, Obama's father, was a polygamist who had already abandoned one wife and child in Africa when he met Obama's mother in Hawaii. After being educated at Harvard, he returned to Africa, abandoning Obama and his mother, to live the life of a chronic alcoholic who ultimately killed himself in his second drink-induced car accident, while driving drunk on the streets of Nairobi.

I heard Obama say on TV that he wants to "talk with everyone in the Muslim world...and give them more money." now i know how he wants to do it.

Obama wants the US to give $62 billion dollars a year to a "Global Poverty Program," aka, third-world welfare. You can bet the farm that African Muslim countries and Middle Eastern NGO's (like Hamas) will be first on the list.

Meanwhile, he's telling us how he's going to save all this money by ending the Iraq War, but he will simply redirect it to countries -- many of which hate us.

No thanks! I don't trust Obama, and those who do are just not listening at all to what he's actually saying beneath all those flowery phrases.

Given his penchant for twisting the truth, I do not, for a moment, believe one, single word that comes out of Obama's mouth.

Yes, I'd take McCain over Obama any day of the week..and, NO, he did NOT say that he wants to keep troops in Iraq for a hundred years. That was hyperbole. He said he wants a "Military presence" like that in S. Korea, and, in doing so, we won't have to have one in Saudi Arabia. The less we have to do with the Saudis, the better.
