This Is Why I Am For Obama

This man's ability to bring clarity to a given issue that is sensible, non-polarizing and uncomplicated. When he states that the removal of troops will reduce the anymosity towards the US throughout the middle east, he pushes a button in me that noone else does. I have been listening to Bush and the "they hate freedom" argument for years and I just can't take it anymore.

Idiots like Bush and Lieberman who want to keep us in the mid-east to "protect our interests" are setting us up for a war with Iran. Why? Oil and Israel. I know it's unpopular to say but the creation Israel was the single most disastrous and short sighted project the world ever took on. The fact that we backed the creation of a religious state and continue to show unwavering support for it is absolutely un-American.

I guess that second part was a bit of an off topic rant but sometimes a thought gets in there and I have to get it out there.

Obama is well-spoken but continues to make blunders. He does not have the experience yet IMHO. When he had a chance to ask questions of the General, he used all his time to speak and listen to himself speak. A prez in training may not be what this country needs and we have nearly gone through 8 years of this already with King George.

I'm rather keen on O'Bama as well
-- just wish we could somehow bring this to an end by December. That way, my brother wouldn't have to go.

Bush and his supporters should be ashamed by this week's address... Did he honestly think we wouldn't figure out that this "troop reduction" really only brought the level back down to where it was before the "surge"?

Bush #43 didn't have presidential experience in '00 either,Bush #41 notwithstanding,which is why Cheney always secretly smiles when 'Hail to the Chief' is played.
