The choice is clear

  1. What if things were reversed....think about it. Would the
    country's collective point of view be different?
    Racism? You betcha !

    ► What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage,
    including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage

    ► What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?

    ► What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

    ► What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

    ► What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a
    severe disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his

    ► What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair
    while he was still married?

    ► What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became
    addicted to
    pain killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable

    ► What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

    ► What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
    (The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of
    corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the
    larger20Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

    ► What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

    ► What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?

    ► What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included
    discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?

    ► What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many
    occasions, a serious anger management problem?

    ► What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution?

    ► What if the Obamas had adopted a
    white child?

    ► You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected
    reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close
    as they are?

    This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
    positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities
    in another when there is a color difference.

    Educational Background:

    Barack Obama:
    Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in
    International Relations.
    Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

    Joseph Biden:
    University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
    Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)


    John McCain:
    United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

    Sarah Palin:
    Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semeste r
    North Idaho College - 2 sem esters - general study
    University of Idaho - 2 semesters -
    Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
    University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

    Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in
    the land as well as our standing in the world. You make the call.

    There has to be a reason that, in spite of the above, we are where we are today.

    Of course, there is a generous dosage of country-wide stupidity too.
  2. If educational credentials were the deciding factor, and intergity with experience meant nothing, I could see your point.
  3. What if Ross Perot had minded his own business back in '92? :cool:
  4. Excellent thread. Thanks Saxon
  5. Traber


    Great thread.
  6. What if obama's BA major is journalism and could not name a newspaper or magzine during an interview?
  7. The difference is Barack and Michelle claim to be "intellectuarls." Both are lightweight fluffs. If you're halfway well-read you can see right through them.

    Neither McCain or Palin have that snobby air about them..or claim to be intellectuals. But both have some real-world experience (military, business owners, etc.). The Obamas have never done anything outside of politics and academia. In other words, they've never done anything.

    All that said, I just see the Republicrats as the lesser of two evils. It's the equivalent of driving off a cliff 50 mph or 70 mph.

    Let O-Scam-A debate Ron Paul on monetary policy and let's see how smart he is. Of course, he's slicker and a better speaker, but a total fluff. The black Bill Clinton.
  8. So you mean he will balance the US budget?:D

    In these below cases, Barack Obama won't bid for the White House and have to wait until he gets 70s to accumulate enough experiences in order to do as McCain is doing.

  10. ipatent


    -What if McCain had associations with right-wing domestic terrorists? Would the press accuse Obama of racism for pointing it out?

    -Biden was dead last in his law school class.

    - Michelle Obama would not have been Ivy League material if she was white or Asian.
