    Give it a good and honest read. It is extensive, easily verifiable if you wish and is indicative of a great leader in any political persuasion.

    I agree with many posters on this site, however, that Obama will probably not be elected POTUS but for different reasons than you might expect.

    There is no question that he is imminently more qualified than the present resident of the White House but I don't think that will matter in the campaign. The MSM has already begun trashing him, unfairly questioning his credentials, obsessing over his race/race mixture and telling the lies that are repeated so often even in this forum that he is somehow "inexperienced".

    Any fair examination of credentials and experience would indicate Obama to be head and shoulders above the bar as set by the neocons in their support of GWB for the past 7 years. I think there will be no real or fair or comprehensive examination of the credentials of Obama by the MSM or ultimately by the majority of Americans. It would be the American way as I have understood it at least until GWB. The widespread support of such a failure of a man as GWB in the past 2 Presidential election cycles indicates to me that the "money" will be the ultimate key regardless the propensities or not of the candidate to perform for the overall good of the nation. The US of A will pay dearly for decades to come as a result of the misguided actions and otherwise malfeasance of it's present occupant of the most powerful political position on Earth.

    It's time we again visit the ideology of electing our President based on qualifications, ethics and demonstrated propensities to operate with the best interests of the nation as a whole rather than whether or not we could sit and drink a beer with them.

    But that's just what I think.

    Well, I'm not a Neocon and believe Bush to be an inadequate leader, but that doesn't change when speaking of the other side of that aisle. We know that Edwards got basted with that same brush during his run for VP even... It's nice to know that it isn't a racial thing, but something that we ask of all the candidates.

    Bush, while running the first time, was constantly questioned about his experience. Pretending otherwise is just false remembering.

    Obama-schmama...WHO CARES??

    I'm a little more worried about other things going on these days...namely Iran. I'm just waiting on the edge of my seat for the huge, bloody, gory, fiery and perhaps nuclear terrorist attack that will go off somewhere in Europe and kill three times as many people as 9/11...then maybe those Frenchies will put down their Sauvignon and wake up. :eusa_doh:

    GWB is not just an inadequate leader. He is not a leader at all in my opinion and any leadership he has ever exhibited has been met with disastrous results. We could talk about Harkiin Oil, Sammy Sosa, Texas Air National Guard, DUI charges, War On Iraq, etc. the things he has actually done on his own. He certainly has his cover, I don't know of any rich brats that don't, but the reality is that his judgement is seriously flawed and his curiosity is seriously lacking. But, I'll give you that he has been sufficiently bailed out to the satisfaction of most.

    Actually, the one thing that John Edwards was accosted for time and again during his campaign was the fact that he was a "trial lawyer". Isn't it ironic that the very first refuge of the cookie jar robbing Republicans are courtrooms and trial lawyers, re: Bush v Gore 2000. Rich folk just don't want the little people to have access to the same legal considerations that they constantly enjoy. It's interesting that you would include your "racial" analogy.

    As a matter of fact, Bush was never seriously put to task during the election cycles concerning his lack of experience because frankly he had none and the MSM ignored that fact other than token mentions on mostly back pages. Even after having been President for several years he asked the Brazilian President, "Oh, do you have black people in Brazil?" So, who is remembering falsely on this issue?

    Big on the fear mongering I see, CaffeineKid. They say it, you repeat it and that makes it true must I presume?

    I glanced at your comment...I could have sworn you just used the phrase "fear-mongering." Prehaps that's what you would have also said to Bush if he would have warned us about 9/11...since he knew it was coming, right?? :rolleyes:
