    Well, looks like the neocon spin machine is in high gear, hopefully people are smarter this time around.

    By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 56 minutes ago
    HONOLULU - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama hit back Thursday with a 40-page rebuttal to the best-selling book "The Obama Nation," arguing the author is a fringe bigot peddling rehashed lies.

    "Jerome Corsi is a discredited liar who is peddling another piece of garbage to continue the Bush-Cheney politics he helped perpetuate four years ago," said Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor. "His is just one of what will likely be many more lie-filled books rushed to print this election cycle, which are cobbled together from debunked Internet sources to make money and advance a partisan agenda. We will respond to these smears forcefully with all means at our disposal."

    Nothing brings people together better than a common enemy.



    "Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." Hermann Goering

    That might be because
    about Bush=TRUE
    about Obama=LIE
    A hard concept huh?
    If there was a book about Bush that was a lie, I'd be calling them out too.
    Why is you neocons find it so hard to decifer the difference between a lie and the truth, worse yet why is it you're all pathological liars and expect the world to believe them and get pissed when we don't.

    Ohh little things like NO evidence to prove any of the claims against Bush, yet the book sells based on those claims and you Liberal turds lap it up like candy. Obama comes from THE MOST corrupt political machine in this country and you want us to believe he is clean as driven snow.. Talk about delusional. :cuckoo:

    Wow, you sure are demonizing the guy. Not a socialist? Not an angry black muslim or radical christian? No different than the other sell out politicians or is he a far left wing liberal?

    Your whole opinion is based on lies. You may believe you are telling the truth or, so dead set against the Democrats or black people that you are purposely lying. Which is it?
