    A black american from Chicago would never be a serious contender for the republican nomination.:rofl:

    I support many of his pastor's views, by the way... but certainly not all of them. Same as Obama.

    and if I ever think I need "help" from you, I will let you know!

    Any black american is welcomed in the republican party btw. My party doesnt support handouts. We believe in hard work will get you success not more government programs.

    Which views you agree with? The HIV one? or the Crack one?

    I am sure you believe that. fact is... the republican party will not nominate a black man for president.

    Re Wright's views: I agree that HIllary has never been called a ******.

    I believe that America's support for Israel was one of the reasons we were attacked on 9/11.

    those are two right off the top of my head.

    As a conservative republican, I would have no problem if a black man was our canadate if he/she followed conservative principles. Race doesn't matter to me. It only matters to me when someone makes that a issue.

    Example: The term African American is offensive to me. We are Americans.

    No, Cpl Raven there is no hope for you.

    God could have written and spoken those words through Obama and you still would call it crap because it doesn't fit your partisan views.

    Shit after listening to Foot In Mouth for seven years, this guy was a great relief. And yet I bet you believe everything Bush says. All those gynocolgist not being able to love their patiens.

    He did disavow the comments that the pastor made. I guess in you view he should shot him. Has McCain denounces the CAtholic Whore Hayden?

    Also, unlike Kristol wrote, he was not in the church when those remarks were made.

    He won me over all the way.

    Well until he proves overwise I will view him in the company he keeps. The guy is no unqualifed for president, a huge liberal, and most likely a racist. This is exactly what this country does not need.

    How much you wanna bet that one of the first things Obama does as president is increase the funding to Africa?

    Parts of the speech were very good, even inspiring. But it is still to be seen if he can overcome the negatives that have dogged him since Wright became the issue.

    I guess that you and MM are discussing a tangent but I’m disappointed that you didn’t reply to my comment. Are you oblivious to a double standard that you might have with respect to Bush and Obama?

    Can you say that Obama lied concerning to what degree he agrees with his pastor and say that Bush did not lie concerning evidence of WMD and reasons for war with Iraq?

    You are such a hypocrite, and your very words support crpRaven's assertion that if it was a Republican saying the exact same thing, you'd have a completely different view and be screeching louder'n a banshee over it.

    You got some nerve calling ANYONE partisan.
