He is a very articulate speaker. He is eloquent. He is mesmerizing-- even hypnotic. Yes, he even sounds presidential, but is he really saying anything? People are so desperate especially in these economic times that they are willing to buy anything that sounds and looks good, but not really thoroughly examine what they're supporting. I dont know if its because they have no access to the information or just dont care about the information. Barack Obama's affiliations (that hasnt been fully pursued by main stream media) from Ayers, to Acorn, to Wright, to Retzko, to Rashidi and his modified family history.

Is this starting to paint a picture here? He makes it sound like his family was destitute and was on welfare. His grandmother was a VP at a bank and his mother a PhD in Anthropology...hardly poor. Yeah, she was on welfare, when she was a grad student. His upbringing as a Muslim boy growing up in Indonesia is a serious issue. Don't minimize his childhood, it plays a significant role and helped shaped his ideologies. Islam is Anti-American, Anti- Jew, Anti -Democracy. His affiliations support these idealogies.

If John McCain or any other candidate had these relationships or was seen talking to someone who was a member of the KKK, they would not be running for president right now. So why did Barack get a pass? If other candidates running especially for the highest office in the land who got registered as Muslim, practiced Islam and was raised in a Muslim society and raised by a Muslim step father why would you want to consider him or her as president?
