Random Passing Thoughts, Iss. 10

Primary Voting Day Edition

If you are registerd to vote haven't already, please go vote today. Unless you're voting for Obama or McCain.

Speaking of Obama, who can name one actual accomplishment that might set him apart from other candidates?

Ohio will be giving you the option to vote with a paper ballot if you request one. After years of training everyone to watch television, surf the internet, etc. the state of Ohio decided to take a giant step BACKWARDS with this move.

Many politicians will tell you that our country is in a horrible state now after the last 7 years with President Bush in office. They'll say how much worse off we are. If that were really true, why is there a problem with immigration? Why would people want to come to such a horrible country?

Oh, and its not "Bush" as the media and others call him. It is "President Bush". If Clinton still gets to be President Clinton, the current President should get the same level of respect.

Don't think the national media is biased? What has Barak Obama done to deserve the Democrat nomination? Some may forget or not know that this guy just lost a run for a Congressional seat in 2000.

He won the Democrat Primary for Senate only after the front-runner, Blair Hull, was accused of alleged domestic abuse. That was convenient for Obama. He then had the backing of the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times (media) to help win the Dem. nomination.

He went onto face Republican Jack Ryan in the general election in 2004. However, less than five months before the election Ryan withdrew from the race following public disclosure of child custody divorce records containing sexual allegations by Ryan's ex-wife, actress Jeri Ryan. Again, convenient for Obama.

In August 2004, with less than three months to go before election day, Alan Keyes accepted the Illinois Republican Party's nomination to replace Ryan, but there wasn't enough time to get together enough of a campaign to stop the momentum that was handed to Obama.

To put in perspective, he's been a U.S. Senator since Jan. 2005, has been campaigning (officially) since Feb. 2007. So, he's actually only had two years of real work.

Hey, he's more like me than I even realized!

    I am right there with you Bob! I don't think that some people realize what a scary thing it would be to have Obama as our president!
    May God be with all the voters and guide them to make the right choice for our country and to not vote just on race or gender.
    Our country needs a leader that will do what is right for our country and not one that is saying everything we want to hear! Like the saying goes "If it sounds too good to be true it probably is".
