Looking at the forum here I have seen a lot of if Obama is elected, then the world will end and generally a lot of venom spat out at a generally mild mannered normal guy. From some of these posts you would think he is the Anti-Christ incarnate come to bring hell to earth. Hes not Hes just a Politician so calm down. Sure, I support Obama now but I was sure I would vote for McCain until he picked Palin as a running mate. I still think that if you are voting on the economy McCain is probably the way to go as I think he will (regardless of what he says in public) increase taxes on upper income individuals and cut spending wisely. I also know Obama wont ruin the economy and I will receive some tax benefit if he is elected so its not a deal breaker for me. Maybe I can relate better to Obama and I realy dont like how republicans are attempting to vilify him. I mean its a guy that served on the board of the Annenberg Project so he is a radical communist? That organization sponsors NOVA on PBS so give me a break. The whole ACORN thing, he worked with a group to increase participation of underrepresented voters. I could have done that, and now that there are aligations of potential voter fraud Obama is a crook and a liar, come on. On the Rev Wright thing, why do the Republicans want to bring up Obamas spiritual life, I would think they would be in favor of the fact that he attends regular services. Regardless of ones stance on the statements made by Wright, should all the parisioners who listen to a sermon be considered to agree with all of the speakers views? I really dont think Republicans want to go there either. All this screaming that Obama is the devil has just pushed me farther and farther away from McCain and as a swing voter that shows. Did it ever occur to the Republicans that swing voters may not care about Ayers, I dont. I figure the past is the past and he has become a productive member of society so more power to him. Now if you are a true partisan you will read the above statement and think, I am glad that son of a bitch isnt voting with me And thats exactly why McCain will lose in November.
