    I don’t see this as a lie. How do you define the word “premise”? It is to set forth beforehand, or as introductory to the main subject; to offer previously, as something to explain or aid in understanding what follows; especially, to lay down premises or first propositions, on which rest the subsequent reasonings.

    Did Obama say that he was not going to make history? No. Everyone makes history. I ate caviar for the first time today. That is part of history. Of course he is going to make history. He might be the first Black president. That would be historic.

    Obama talks about change. If you want to know what changes he has in mind, simply look at his web site or go to

    Are you for real?

    McCain a CAREER politician?

    The man is a CAREER soldier, he gave his "all", and you disrespect him?

    Your the one, that needs an education on what is right, and what is wrong.

    Piss off..............:eusa_wall:

    Perhaps you want to talk to SE about disrespecting John McCain... disagreeing with him, or thinking he's like any other politician isn't that...

    calling him "mcpain" like SE does, and denying him his name... now THAT'S disrespect.

    McCain was in the military for 21 years.

    McCain was a politician for 28 years. Yeah I'd say hes been a career politician.

    I was supportive of Obama until I saw him buckle under the Pastor situation recently, trying to make everybody happy like a lousy leader. I would have had more respect for him had he either completely denounced his pastor or supported him, but the wishy-washy statements officially made him a typical DC politician.

    Is John Edwards still available to jump back in?

    McCain served in the military. He was even a POW. No one is denying that or criticizing him for his service. Having said that, I also say that 1982, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. After serving two terms, he was elected to the U.S. Senate from Arizona in 1986. He was re-elected Senator in 1992, 1998, and 2004. Based on that, I consider McCain to be a career politician. He was a career soldier. Now he is a career politician.

    and just to be correct...I am sure that John McCain would take issue with anyone calling him a career soldier. He was a career sailor. He was a career naval officer. He weren't no damn soldier. Soldiers go to West Point.:rofl:

    If you didn't have Hilary and Obamas name in here I would have sworn you were talking about George Bush. Actually what politician doesn't act like that? Please. Get a better argument then come back for more.
