    come on obama, show some balls and clearly state your positions. joking about it when it is a very important topic to many people is just stupid.

    i think most americans would love honesty from their politicians

    Honest? I think he tried. He said legally, abortion and gay rights should be ok. Your relgion says those two things are bad? That's your right. But keep your religion away from the rest of us. You are like the taliban. Trying to make this a Christian nation. Not if I have anything to say about it. I think the worst people on earth are the religion people. I don't mind.

    He was saying what MOST people believe unless they're spouting religious dogma, which is it isn't there place to say when a fetus becomes a child.... which is why the issue should be left up to the individual.

    And for those pathetic souls who will now say: "and if you belived it was morally ok to [insert heinous act here], pretty pathetic....

    just keep your religious determinations away from my body....

    im not very religious, and i am pro choice. my problem is that he made a joke about an issue which many people find very important. is that really what a president should do? for me, obama has been a major disappointment.

    the taliban? youre reaching, bobo.

    How about McCain's bomb bomb bomb Iran joke? How about his joke that we export cigarettes to Iran and that's how we are killing them?

    Not very presidential at all.

    And how Bush's antics for 8 years? Presidential? I think not.

    So for you to suggest Obama is the one acting unpresidential? You are reaching SARA.

    Abortion an important issue to "many people" :rofl:

    Good one!

    The people to whom this issue is "important," no matter how many or on which side, already made up their mind about which party they'll be voting for even before the nominees were known. There are absolutely no votes to be won or lost on this one.

    Dudley's disenchantment with the GOP isn't unique among young, devoutly Christian voters. According to a September 2007 survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, 15 percent of white evangelicals between 18 and 29, a group traditionally a shoo-in for the GOP, say they no longer identify with the Republican Party. Older evangelicals are also questioning their traditional allegiance, but not at the same rate.

    Politics | Young, evangelical ... for Obama? | Seattle Times Newspaper

    WRONG! This is another demographic that is up for grabs. Same with the military vote. The GOP should not think that any group/state is a shoe in for them this year. Not after the last 8 years. No way.
