Why is "because he's bound to be better than George Bush" a sound reason to elect Obama as President? Last time I checked, Bush wasn't running for re-election.
Does it really matter that Obama has "rock-star"status in Europe? Didn't John Kerry wow them in Paris also?
The New Yorker shouldn't be ashamed of it's recent magazine cover mocking the opinions of the right. They should be ashamed of apologizing for it. I don't recall anyone screaming for an apology for all the times McCain, or any other conservative was mocked in a cartoon.
Aside from absolute hatred of all things George Bush, why would any American want to vote for Barack Obama?
Answer this honestly, what does "change" mean?
The media has been stating recently that Obama is "moving to the center" in order to appeal to the masses. Does that mean that by expressing his true beliefs, his appeal is unappealing to middle America?
At least when John McCain changes his mind, he doesn't change his core beliefs. Is THAT the kind of change we're supposed to believe in?
What is wrong with questioning what Michelle Obama says while campaigning for her husband? Should we give her a free pass because she might become the First Lady? Did anyone give Nancy Reagan a pass? I seem to remember a tremendous amount of vitrol aimed at Mrs. Reagan and all she said was "Just Say No." It seemed to work for Josh Hamilton.
If anyone asks me what the definition of agony is, I will show them this picture of Karnit Goldwasser, the widow of murdered IDF soldier Ehud Goldwasser, taken at the time of the exchange between Israel and Hezbollah.
If anyone asks me what the definition of evil is, I will show them this picture of child-killer Samir Kuntar, the monster who they traded the two dead soldiers for. Never has a contrast in pictures been so blatantly telling.
Did anyone else notice just how hypocritical Al Gore is? Did you see the limousines that were idling while he was telling the world to stop with the excess?
Did anyone else notice how much money Al Gore stands to make in his investments should the United States decide to follow his reckless advice?
It may well be that Al Gore is absolutely correct in all of his preachings (although 50,000 scientists now say he's not). But sometimes the right message is disregarded because of the wrong messenger.
How ironic is it that Nancy Pelosi can say that President Bush is the worst and most unpopular president in the history of our history? Hey Nancy, have you seen YOUR approval rating? Bush may be hovering around 30% (still higher than Nixon, although that is of little comfort). But Pelosi and company are at 9%. Even Ted Kaczynski was more popular than 9%.
Here is a brilliant video of a politician being owned by his rival (make sure to watch to the end):
