You have all taken apart all candidates that are running for the GOP nomination. You have educated us as to why Cain is a poor choice...why Bachmann is a hypocrite.....Newt is not worthy....Rommey.....and I can go on and on. Fine...thank you. What you have done is reviewed their years in politics, or thier years in business, their years as a privatye citizen, the actions when they were younger, the actions of their spouses...etc..etc...etc... So now lets go back to 2008..... Obama had a mere 2 years as a state senator and less than 18 months as a US senator. He had a very spotty voting record in Illinois...voted present quite often and voted party lines pretty much the rest of the time...so it was difficxult to see what his thought process was As a US senator, he voted against the surge...something that was successful and he doubled down on when he was President....so that vote was the wrong vote at the time. The rest of his votes were either present or along party lines....so again, one can not evaluate his thought process. So what did we want to know about him...... His acadedmic successes....but we were told no...none of our business. His writings with the law review...we were told none of our business His relationships with other people...we were told it is irrelevant and that we should not judge him by the actions of his mentors and supporters.....and we are racists if we try to We asked who his friends are...we were told none of our business (anyone know of ANY friends that he has?) SO I must ask all of you....you have dug deep to knock and find fault in the GOP runners... So what of Obama did you evaluate when you opted to vote for him?
