    Nice rip!

    Yes, the media and white liberals (and nobody else) are gaga for Obama because he's a handsome halfsie with an interesting background and a Harvard Law degree. What substantive stands or policies he's for or has accomplished, nobody cares.

    I think a bigger truth is that we don't really want leaders who do policy details or even have set ideologies. We want figures we can... make figures of.

    Obama would be your worst nightmare. A half black guy with intelligence. You must be shitting yourself....

    Aye. And there is no greater example of the above than the current occupant of the White House..

    I'm not pooping myself, though I think the country cannot afford a leader lacking experience or a core set of beliefs:

    I'm sure he has a core set of beliefs...he just needs to start expressing them. I think the current occupant of the WH has proven you don't need experience to get the job, but you do need experience to do the job. BTW, I don't consider a couple of years as governor of Texas as experience. like the past six years, those around him have done all the work (IMO)...he's just the nodding head....

    Funny how none of the right complained that Bush knew nothing about foreign affairs. Unfortunately, in Bush's case, it wasn't just lack of experience, but true ignorance. That ignorance has had wide-ranging repercussions.

    Yep, same problem as Obama, though GW had MORE experience. Obama's record in IL was zippo, nada. I know, I'm here and I've checked. Neither major paper is enthused with him, they know him best. He's accomplished zippo so far in the Senate, other than speechifying. Is that REALLY what you care about right now?

    You're right of course. Going by what you see (living in his constituancy)...and if the Tribune etc don't rate him then that indeed is a problem. I'm just pointing out, it is not necessarily going to stop him 1) Running 2) Or winning...

    Yep. Still, I don't blame him for all of that. Those around him should have known better....probably did in fact, but didn't give a shit...
