    "For we have a choice in this country. We can accept a politics that breeds division, and conflict, and cynicism. We can tackle race only as spectacle – as we did in the OJ trial – or in the wake of tragedy, as we did in the aftermath of Katrina - or as fodder for the nightly news. We can play Reverend Wright’s sermons on every channel, every day and talk about them from now until the election, and make the only question in this campaign whether or not the American people think that I somehow believe or sympathize with his most offensive words. We can pounce on some gaffe by a Hillary supporter as evidence that she’s playing the race card, or we can speculate on whether white men will all flock to John McCain in the general election regardless of his policies.

    We can do that.

    But if we do, I can tell you that in the next election, we’ll be talking about some other distraction. And then another one. And then another one. And nothing will change." Barack Obama

    Information from Publius Pundit:

    (1) Obama said during the primary season that he would vote to block blanket immunity for telecommunications companies in connection with post-Sept. 11 eavesdropping. Now that he got the nomination, he's announced he'll vote in favor of immunity.

    (2) During the primaries, Obama said he would insist on renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement to stop Mexico and Canada from abusing the system to harm the American economy. Now victorious, he supports the existing agreement.

    (3) While seeking left-wing votes for the nomination, he said he would meet with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions. The nomination sewn up, he no longer has any such intention.

    (4) Filled with primary fervor, he said he could "no more disown Jeremiah Wright than his own grandmother." A few months later, he disowned him.

    (5) Obama pledged unconditionally that he would accept public financing during the general election while he was talking to left-wing voters who despise the "fat cats." Now that he's been anointed, he's rejected public funding.

    (6) An editorial in the Post adds yet another: Obama promised during the primary season to participate in a series of inclusive town-hall meetings with his opponent John McCain. McCain is still ready to do it, but now as the front runner Obama is backing out like a cowardly and very common politician. Change you can believe in?

    As Krauthammer puts it: "By the time he's finished, Obama will have made the Clintons look scrupulous."

    Why didn't you post anything concerning Obama's mentors and role models?
    Why would you hide those factual details and only offer campaign rhetoric?
    Shouldn't Americans be knowledgeable about their candidates?

    The telecom immunity isn't the half of it. He voted to make it easier for the government to spy on Americans. Much easier. He's acted like a Progressive for the longest time but he certainly isn't acting like one now. Not that I'm a big fan of Progressives, but still.

    What really makes me laugh, and cry, is watching the lefties excuse him at every turn.

    The Democrat Congress has been doing the same thing for over 1 1/2 years now.

    4,000 dead, 30,000 wounded, and $700 billion dollars wasted on a hole in the desert.

    Largest increase in the national debt in history.

    No energy policy, no stem cell research, no response to Katrina.

    The worst administration in American history. Quickly turning us into a third world nation.

    Yea....I'm going to vote Republican. Right.
