    It is ironic that Senator Obama will be airing a Ginsu Knife-like Infomercial tonight. Why?

    You realy don't know a lot about them and you didn't go out looking for them but if they can get you to watch their super slick marketing, flashy showmanship and multi-million dollar advertising campaign for a half an hour, they may con America into buying a substandard chinese knife that's going to cost you ten times what it's worth.


    Operators are standing by.

    No, Obama is a Gerber LMF II.

    Why don't you watch it and tell me what you think? You're an intelligent guy, I'd love to hear your viewpoint.

    All we heard during the Bush administration is how we Republicans were sold a bill of goods by a slick group of salesmen. We'd been duped!
    Yet Obama enters the scene and what happens? The Dems get sold a bill of goods by a slick group of salesmen. You gotta' laugh! :D

    Sham wow! Elect one Obama and he'll throw in his wife and absolutely ADORABLE little girls in for free.

    Have you seen his little girls?

    You know, I've heard when you have your first baby, and you look that baby in the eyes and you see so much hope, so much opportunity for that baby... you want to change the entire world for her to protect her.

    I truly believe that Obama wants to change this world so his children have a better world to grow up in. He knows every decision he makes will turn this world either for better or for worse for his children. I have to believe that the decisions he makes based upon this desire to keep his children safe will automatically keep us safe and help us become more prosperous.

    We will be a greater country because of Obama.

    I'm DavidS and I approved this message.

    I'm just a regular guy. In a smarts contest you have me licked by a country mile.

    Barack Obama lost my vote a long time ago over the the "clinging to guns and religion" not as much because of the quote itself but because he was speaking to the liberal elite in California about 'the rubes in Pennsylvania' when he thought no one was listening.

    I know he is just a politician and I shouldn't expect him to be anything but two faced, but that was more than I could abide.

    A man can say anything to your face in the light of day, but it's what he says behind your back in the shadows that tells the tale.

    i suppose that's one way to look at it. another might be that he knew the palin/mccain campaign would spend the last week befpre the election smearing him (along with all their little rovian minions), and perhaps he knew he'd need the time to respond to the nutters who decided he's a communist, anti-american, arab, anti-christ. ;o)

    have to watch it to find out.
