C'mon Obama... call off your attack dogs and put an end to this unwinnable fight. Look like the president that you are! this is a battle you cannot win! So, instead of attacking Fox News, and those on that network with the cheap shots from Dunn, Axelrod and Emmanuel... schedule an interview with one of their journalists––sooner rather than later. This will demonstrate you are the man, and not afraid of their news...

Whoever advised President Barack Obama to go on a week's vacation in elite's-ville a/k/a Martha's Vineyard, especially in the midst of the worst economic times evah... must have really hated the president's guts.

America's size and some of its actions in the past have made her untrustworthy and hated by many around the globe. It's a brilliant move on President Obama's part to play the underdog until other nations, and their leaders, feel comfortable with the U.S. again and embrace us as the leading nation we are.

How in the world has Rush Limbaugh versus President Obama become such a huge story in this nation? With America on the 'edge of the abyss' and so many major catastrophes threatening to take America out the back door, how is Rush challenging Obama to a debate even relevant?
For most voters in middle America, the petty and foolish 'jaw jacking' between the Obama White House and the Rush Limbaugh daily radio show... is nuts.

While Jindal is currently no match for Obama, if the stimulus bill does not jump-start this country... style and great words will be 'moot', as Obama will be a footnote in history by 2012, and Jindal could be what the fickle American public will be looking for by then...
SHARE Monday, January 19, 2009 President Barack Obama: A New Day in the U.S.A.
Growing up in the racially charged 70's, where the mantras of the day were: "Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud"; "To Be Young, Gifted and Black", "Don't Want Nobody to Give Me Nothin'... Open the Door and I'll Get it Myself"... it is with deep pride that I, the great-great-great- graddaughter of slaves can see someone, who looks like me, actually in charge of the city where a 'free black man' named Benjamin Banneker built.

Wow... Zawahiri calls Obama the equivalent of a "house nigger".
Now, as a world leader, it would not be expedient for Obama to flip-the-bird to Zawahiri and al-Qaeda, as he did Clinton and McCain when they insulted him on the campaign trail. But he is going to have to say something in response to this verbal affront... lest he, and America likewise... becomes the global 'whipping boys' for the next few years.

Regardless of political persuasions, Republican or Democrat, the night of November 4, 2008 ushers in a new era of pride for people of color everywhere. Black Americans can stand tall, head held high, because once and for all the door to equality has been kicked opened, allowing Black men, women, boys and girls to take their rightful place at the table of prosperity and recognition.

The following "hush-hush"undercurrent is running rampant about Obama which will cost him the election: 1. He's lying about being a Muslim; 2. he needs to come clean on how long and how deep in-bed he is with former terrorist William Ayres; 3. he's the Oak Tree from which the ACORN organization was hatched and allowed to fester; 4. he's a Manchurian candidate; 5. he is a by-product of Rev. Jeremiah Wright...
SHARE Wednesday, October 1, 2008 Maverick McCain's Future Hangs in Balance With Bailout Bill
October 1st is clock-reset-day. It's reckoning day for Senator McCain, as he faces the most crucial vote of his entire 25-year political career. Many hard working Americans, fiscal conservatives who want to believe McCain is indeed one of them...along with many others who oppose this massive 700 billion dollar bailout, are waiting with bated breath to seenot how Obama or Biden will vote, but McCain.

Presidential candidates need to remember that one of them will eventually have to govern and lead all Americans after this election is over. Trying to lead angry folks will make for a steep hill to climb. McCain and Obama need to start acting like the world leaders they hope to be, and get back to debating issues!

Obama and McCain are supposedly toying with the idea of reaching across the aisle to choose a Veep. This being an unusual election year, and with a growing divide in the country at this time, the candidate with the chutzpah to couple with someone of a totally different political persuasion may be able to pull off such a feat... and also win points among those in the heartland of America.

The media's overblown coverage of those three have made their very names nauseating to the general public. People don't want to hear their names, see their faces or hear about any more of their previous or future escapades... let alone 'any' further information about them. Period! Truth be told, every time that 'ad' plays (and it is sure to play non-stop from now until November) Senator Obama will understand the art-of-that-ad
