This is my first post to this site, after holding it in for the last few months...and I am finally saying it. I have never seen such hypocrisy from a political party in my life. The lies and half-truths and distortions...it is amazing. If Obama and his family had 1/4 the incidents that the McCain campaign has had, the assault from the GOP would be massive. * Imagine if it was found out that the DNC had spent $150,000 on clothes for Michelle Obama? Instead, we get a hug *shoulder-shrug* and they say they are donating it to charity, so it doesn't count. * Imagine if Obama had a 17 year-old, unwed, pregnant daughter up on stage and was shaking hands with an 18-year old black "gansta" who is dropping out of high school? Imagine the assualt from the GOP! Instead we get praise about how Christian those "darn" kids are since they plan to get married! You Betcha! * Imagine if Obama's wife was a secessionist, such as Palin's husband is? Say she wanted Illinois to seceed from the union... Can you imagine FOX with THAT headline? Instead, we barely hear a thing about it. I could go on, but you get the point. Like I said, I very rarely post political comments like this, but these last few weeks have just been mind-blowing to me. I had to say something. Oh, one more thing...why is it that Obama is getting hit by Palin on his "re-distribution of wealth" comment, when she herself created a large tax on oil companies in Alaska, then with that money sent every Alaskan citizen a $2300 check? Isn't THAT "re-distribution of wealth--also known as socialism"? Any neo-con(men) want to answer that one?
