President Obama

Get used to hearing it, because next year (and tonight) we'll be talking about President Obama. Sure the Republicans are going to mount a scathing attack on Obama; they won't be concerned and obsessed with his style and speech-giving abilities as the Hillary campaign was - no, Republicans will constantly be labeling and branding Obama as:

- "The most liberal Senator in history; more liberal than Ted Kennedy, more liberal than Hillary Clinton."

- "He's inexperienced, he's had no real foreign policy experience."- "He's a weak Commander-In-Chief who wants to lose in Iraq."

- "He's going to make things worse by meeting with incorrigible dictators."

- "He's for sex education for kindergarteners."

- "A President Obama will raise your taxes." 

This is the kind of rhetoric you're going to be hearing NONSTOP out of the Republican Party and McCain campaign. Fortunately for Obama, Pee Wee Herman will become President before John McCain will ever become President.

The Republican Party and their party elders have screwed up so very bad for so long now, the American people have realized Republicans are NOT operating in their best interest.  Increasingly, Americans are beginning to realize the same is true for the Democratic Party.   

On Feb. 28th, 2008, John McCain "accidentally" (by Freudian slip) referred to himself as a "liberal" during one of his speeches.  The Republican Party was not amused.  McCain has a real problem with many old school Republicans who convulse and recoil at the reality of John McCain being the Republican nominee.   

Obama is 26 years younger than McCain and raises $50 million a month, no problemeskos.  McCain is simply incapable of defeating this movement a.k.a. "Obamania" and wise Republicans know it. Like I said, it's pronounced, "President Obama." 

What ever happened to Hillary Clinton?

I tell you what Hillary's problem was: She was married to the past, and the American people were hell-bent on moving forward, period. So much for the "popularity" of Bill Clinton.  The only chance Hillary had at defeating Barack Obama would have been if Hillary had divorced Bill Clinton and ran on the, "I'm free and moving forward" ticket.  No, Hillary remained shackled to the past, while America broke free and ran to Barack Obama.

Who In The Hell Is Barack Obama?

Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4th, 1961.  His father, Barack Obama Sr., was born and raised in a small village in Kenya, where he grew up herding goats with his own father, who was a domestic servant to the British. Barack's mother, Ann Dunham, grew up in small-town Kansas.  Her father worked on oil rigs during the Depression, and then signed up for World War II after Pearl Harbor, where he marched across Europe in Patton's army.  Her mother went to work on a bomber assembly line, and after the war, they studied on the G.I. Bill, bought a house through the Federal Housing Program, and moved west to Hawaii.

It was there, at the University of Hawaii, where Barack's parents met.  

His mother was a student there, and his father had won a scholarship that allowed him to leave Kenya and pursue his dreams in America. Barack's father eventually returned to Kenya, and Barack grew up with his mother in Hawaii, and for a few years in Indonesia.  Later, he moved to New York, where he graduated from Columbia University in 1983.
