hes too liberal and he never shares any of his plans for the usa. he only says im the president of change. well.... what changes?
- Completely agree with you...
After seeing him and Hilary Clinton debating and acting like 2 10 year old kids I came to the conclusion that I want neither as my president. And from this, I realized that Edwards is a surprisingly good choice.
He keeps telling us he's going to get out of Iraq like everyone else does, but never explains how.
Of course, everyone thinks he's great because he's a nice guy, but I'm not fooled by his empty promises.
Well Obama hasn't really done anything. His record as a state legislator is mediocre at best and his record as a senator is not at all impressive. The other night there was a pollster asking questions to a bunch of Democrat supporters and most of them were for Obama - so they were asked "What has Obama done as a legislator - name a bill or piece of legislation or something he voted for" and none of them could think of one thing. They passed the mike to about ten people and they all got this blank look. This isn't a high school debate team contest where the best and most polished speaker won - there have been a lot of dictators who were very good speakers and a lot of great leaders who were not very good at "speechifying".
Another thing is something I have been reading around the internet - and it is whether or not he has told the truth about whether he is a Muslim.Obama's father was a Muslim (so was his stepfather, his mothers second husband) and in that faith, if your father is a Muslim, you are considered to be a Muslim. If he converted away from that religion, he would still be considered to be a Muslim by other religious Muslims, or he would be considered to be an apostate. He says that he is now the member of a Christian congregation, but in Islam you are allowed to lie - it is something called takia (maybe I'm spelling it wrong) - if it advances your cause you are allowed to lie and dissemble and take on another identity - which makes me wonder if he is lying about being a Muslim in order to gain the presidency. Because the fact is, whether or not you think it is fair, there are a lot of Americans who could not be easy voting for a Muslim so soon after 9-11.
And another thing - to base your whole platform on "change" isn't that sound. Change isn't always good. You can change from good to better or from bad to worse - and I want those changes - and programs - to be based on the Constitution, not on the latest feel-good polls. And I'm not hearing a whole lot on the stump from anybody about that - but imho Obama is the most vague.
I like Mike Huckabee. He is a normal person. Like a friend you'd work with. Clinton and Obama seem like the business owners that you hate but work for.
Plus Mike Huckabee would have an awesome catch phrase. "I Like Mike".
But if he doesnt win I'm hoping for Mccain.

He's the worst. He's very phony. He has no experience whatsover. 3 years in the senate? wow. And its embarrassing that he is even doing well.
- I wish we could vote "Do Over". I am unimpressed with all three of the current frontrunners, and I am not naive enough to vote for a third party candidate (not until there is a viable third party).
- i think u are saying things without knowin any thing. its not about whether you think he is a nice guy or not or how it would be wierd to say president barack its about his policies. McCain will just do the same thing as bush
