Uplifting


Barack Obama is now officially the Democratic nominee for President of these United States. My wife and I watched his very uplifting speech. I can only imagine what all black Americans were feeling last night. 143 years after slavery was abolished a black man is one election away from being President. I'm just happy that after 8 years of Bush an intelligent human being is one election away from being President.

Now I'm sure the Republicans are ripping on Obama this morning, that's politics. But, they can't argue with the fact that this country is going in the wrong direction.

Republicans like to characterize Obama supporters as if we are running after Forrest Gump. Or that we think Obama is some type of Messiah. I know Obama cannot solve all this country's problems. And I don't think he said he would. Obama is at least recognizing that things need fixing. He is trying to instill the sense that "together" we as a country can "work together" to solve these problems.

Republicans during the last 8 years have tried to figure out how to stuff their pockets with more money. They are doing it on the backs and with the blood of real Americans.

I'm just glad to be alive in country where this is possible.

Obama HAS to win now because if McCain wins, then dies in office a "hockey mom" will be running our country.
What is this idiot thinking with this choice?

It's actually a very wise move on McCain's part. There are women out there who simply want a women in the White House. (And why not?) When Hillary didn't get the VP nod, McCain had to go this route to swing over some of those votes. Now history will be made no matter what party wins.
McCain is a poor Presidential choice, but calling him an "idiot" is wrong. He is the definition of a much over used word in this country. He is a Hero.
Bush is an idiot. Having a "hockey mom" in office couldn't be any worse than these last 8 years.....
