How about his friends??

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes

Submitted by Donna (United States), Aug 28, 2008 at 20:33

I most often judge people by their friends. If the person is a crackhead or alcoholic, their friends usually are also. Obama has friends of really questionable character. I will never get past him being a friends with his cursing, hateful pastor or Ayers. (I can remember when Ayers was thrilled about the bombings that he accomplished with I believe, it was the "Weathermen."

As for "Change"...I can only figure out that it means nothing but change left in your pocket if you work or my other idea of change is..."If it works, don't fix it" or change most often is not for the better if things are good enough and need just tweeked to improve them. I often have found that change is NOT always good...In the last few years, change to me is a health issue that was not anticipated, an auto accident with a change in driving a different car...change of going through a few hurricanes in one year and moving away from the water. CHANGE! CHANGE? CHANGE.

What a foolish campaign slogan...means absolutely nothing right now and could mean disaster unless Hussein can explain what kind of change and then I would still want nothing to do with him and surely would not want him as a possible acquaintance or be one of his friends such as Bill Ayers or that hateful pastor of white people.

Submitting....
