  1. Various Endorsements

    Scott McClellan Republican former press secretary to Bush

    “From the very beginning I’ve said I’m going to support the candidate who has the best chance of changing the way Washington works and getting things done. I will be voting for Barack Obama. ”

    William Weld, Former Republican Governor of Massachusetts

    “Sen. Obama is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate who will transform our politics and restore America’s standing in the world.”

    Ken Adelman, Famous Republican Advisor to Reagan

    "When the economic crisis broke, I found John McCain bouncing all over the place. In those first few crisis days, he was impetuous, inconsistent, and imprudent; ending up just plain weird,"

    Colin Powell, Secretary of State under Bush 43

    "...he has met the standard of being a sucessful president, being an exceptional president. I think he is a transformational figure. He is a new generation coming into the world-- onto the world state, onto the American stage, and for that reason I'll be voting for Senator Barack Obama."

    Douglas Kmiec, Head of the Office of Legal Counsel under Reagan & Bush 41

    "I was first attracted to government by Ronald Reagan, who lives in our national memory as a great leader and an inspiring communicator. Senator Obama has these gifts as well, but of course, more rhetorical flourish without substance would be worth little. Is there more to Senator Obama? I believe there is."

    Jackson M. Andrews, Republican Counsel to the U.S. Senate

    "Barack Obama is a thoughtful visionary leader who as President will end the decline of American law, liberty, and fiscal responsibility that are the hallmarks of the extremist policies of the current Administration, now adopted by John McCain."

    Susan Eisenhower, Granddaughter of President Eisenhower & President of the Eisenhower Group

    "Given Obama's support among young people, I believe that he will be most invested in defending the interests of these rising generations and, therefore, the long-term interests of this nation as a whole."

    Francis Fukuyama, Advisor to President Reagan

    "...Obama probably has the greatest promise of delivering a different kind of politics."

    Rita Hauser, Former White House intelligence advisor under George W. Bush

    "McCain will continue the wrong-headed foreign policy decisions of Bush, while Obama will take us in a new direction."

    Larry Hunter, Former President Reagan Policy Advisor

    "I suspect Obama is more free-market friendly than he lets on. He taught at the University of Chicago, a hotbed of right-of-center thought. His economic advisers, notably Austan Goolsbee, recognize that ordinary citizens stand to gain more from open markets than from government meddling."

    Bill Ruckelshaus, served in the Nixon and Reagan administrations

    "I'm not against McCain, I'm for Obama."

    Ken Adelman, served in the Ford administration

    "The most important decision John McCain made in his long campaign was deciding on a running mate. That decision showed appalling lack of judgment... that selection contradicted McCain's main two, and best two, themes for his campaign-- Country First, and experience counts. Neither can he credibly claim, post-Palin pick."

    Lilibet Hagel, Wife of Republican Senator Chuck Hagel

    "This election is not about fighting phantom issues churned out by a top-notch slander machine. Most important, it is not about distracting the public-- you and me-- with whatever slurs someone thinks will stick."
  2. All puppet insiders......SCARY.....I have NEVER seen insiders so begging to see a certain person elected.....this is fricken getting REAL SCARY!!!

    The typical two party LEFT/RIGHT paradigm crowd will continue to drag our country off the cliff......the blood will continue to be ALL ON YOUR HANDS!!!

    *** WOW....additional reasons why I will be writing in Ron Paul for my vote!!! ***

    BTW, more disgusting news on how obama will be tested in some international crisis right away......the grand "set up" of all times is at hand..............

    Albright Agrees: Terrorists Will Test Obama

    Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, one of the most prominent Hillary Clinton supporters now in support of Barack Obama, admits it is a “statement of fact” that the election of the Democratic senator from Illinois as president will result in him being tested by a generated international crisis by America’s enemies.

    Responding to last weekend’s comments by Obama’s vice presidential running mate Joe Biden — who said Obama would be tested within the first six months of his administration — Albright told CNN’’s John Roberts, “It’s just a statement of fact. In my book [“Memo to the President Elect: How We Can Restore America’s Reputation and Leadership”], I talk about the fact that there are a lot of big issues out there, but also something unexpected. You always have to be prepared for that.”

    Albright, an informal advisor to the Obama campaign and Secretary of State under former President Bill Clinton, has gone on record as saying Biden is one of the most respected figures in American foreign policy and should know about these matters.

    “As Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee he has involved himself in every conceivable subject,” she told Bloomberg News. “I’ve testified in front of him many times and he is incredibly knowledgeable, very oriented to making a difference for America, and very well-known by foreign leaders.”


  3. Me too. Can't even vote Libertarian anymore, with that prohibitionist scumbag now leading the Libertarian party (how the fuck did THAT happen, btw???).

    Capitalism is on the ropes; Greenspan getting a public ass-reaming from congress, and conceeding that free-market economics is "flawed" (of course its flawed... it's just that every other system is even <b>more</b> flawed), and the nation just begging for more government interference in our lives... it looks like they're about to get the government they deserve. :eek:
  4. Bush: Out of control government expansion while shitting upon the Bill of Rights and lowering taxes.

    Obama: Out of control government expansion while shitting upon the Bill of Rights and <i>raising</i> taxes.

    I don't mind change, but I'd really prefer improvement.
  5. Yes, Yes!! Just because Bush has been a shit doesn't mean NOBama is going to be any better... somewhat different, but still LOUSY... maybe even more lousy...

  7. "1. Neither candidate nor neither party represents anything I value.

    2. The Government lies to me and all of us constantly, and I'm sick and tired of it.

    3. Neither party shows any fiscal responsibility.

    Therefore, I'm not voting for president in 2008" -- Jesse [The Body] Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota
