in response to reader comment: Obama's popularity

I'll tell you why 50% of Americans and a huge part of Europe like him. First, America is so ready for change (which we will get regardless of who gets elected), his words sound good, they make sense to the blind eye, but when you start digging, you see things that werent originally presented. There are too many sketchy ties to Obama. I was undecided until about 2 weeks ago, around the 3rd debate, but Obama just doesnt sit well!

As far as Europe, they have nothing to do with this election. This isn't a popluarity contest, it is a race for the most important job in this world, so spare me the remarks about being popular. I would rather have a very disliked person doing things right than a popular person who wants more control, more spending, and soon enough, this coutry will be tested as Joe Biden so diligently pointed out. We will be tested,

Obama is weak, and not prepared to be taken on by these terrorists! There is more bad in this world than good, and for people to think that Obama is this almighty one who will fix everything, they have the wrong impression. People think that this War on Terror is over and it is far from over, they have been trying to get at America since the 60's and what makes people think they will stop now? They absolutely will not stop until they are defeated, PERIOD! I pray God will take this election over and make sure the right person gets put into office, one way or another!
