  • Darrell J. Sparks

    I like how you make it seem like he’s the only liar to walk the face of the earth, and I’m sure that the lies he told, are far less of a deal then the Presidents before him.

  • laughing out loud

    all presidents are liars as all humans are liars

    deal with it and stop crying

    Dude, I’m 26. My comment was directed at your rambling, incoherent rant. I can tell you that you are not the future of the country, the future of the country can construct an English sentence. Were you implying that Obama’s tax policy is rooted in trickle down economics?? Really? Do you know what that is? It sounded to me like your two reasons for opposing Obama are the trickle down thing and making everyone have “Medicaid.” One is the complete opposite of the truth, the other is a silly oversimplification of a very progressive health care plan.

    What exactly do you like about McCain?

    I hate to make an example of you, Kaila, but you are a perfect example of why we need to invest more in our primary and secondary education systems.

    from a young person’s stand point (17 turning 18 3 months after the election) i never really cared about politics before until this year OBAMA IS A MISTAKE WAITING TO HAPPEN i think that he’s just a elebrity politic that why all the other young people just vote for him they don’t know anything about him is he trying to do the trickle down theory becuz newsflash it has been done in history before and it never worked i’ve heard from both sides and some of the things that i’m not sure about obama but from what i heard is that he’s trying to make everyone have medicade …that means less doctors in the U.S. because nobody is want to go to school for 5-8 years just to get payed $3.00 a patient. and he’s making everything federal? i’m pretty sure that means they can own all our things and take them away from us because we don’t own them. And doesn’t he want to go into Alaska? because if he does that must be the worst thing for our world that ice reflects the sun rays and when that melts not only will it raise water levels our earth is going to get warmer. and he wants to take the troops away ??? isn’t it good that we have troops there so that maybe the world can see that the U.S. is trying to help and make peace (even though they don’t want us there) maybe these people won’t think that Americans are bad and it’s unrealistic too just take the troops out and bring them back home and it’s not like we’re gaining any money from the war at all.DID EVERYONE FORGET WHAT HAPPENED SEPTEMBER 11??? i mean im not for the war but i’m not against it i have family in the war and i miss them terribly but there out there for us for our country this is what i was informed i’m not really sure but i’m not liking what i’m hearing haha but if obama does get elected i think that he might get assassinated just because he’s trying to do drastic reform when alot of the people in the u.s. is composed of conservative older people i don’t think their going to like this “change” because abe lincoln and that other president that i can’t remembered got assassinated for making drastic change but i don’t know you never know. but MCCAIN O8 ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!!!!!!!
    and ohhh why does everyone pick on palin !! i love her!!! people need to stop because she’s trying !! her family..with her daughter and all ….thats not relevent at all that’s personal just like bill clinton and his affair thats his life that had nothing to do with presidency!! and when they asked palin which newspaper does she read maybe she didn’t want to advertise one type of news paper company so she said all of them i don’t care what anyone says i think palin is strong for still being in the running when the whole world thinks nothing of her !! STOP HATING ON PALIN EVERYONE!!!!! BECAUSE SHES HOTTT AND I LOVE HER!!! okay thats alll

      Wow, this is why you have to be 18 to vote.

      • kaila

        are you an idiot honestly? i said it’s my view on things why do you have to be an asshole . seriously i think some older people need to grow up!!! just because i can’t vote i’m the youth of america and it’s a shame that not all the youth is educated in politics i’m the future of america and all of you, well ..all of you are just going to be crusty and old!

  • Joe

    This video is nonsense. Snopes.com refutes just about every claim. Even the U of Chicago had to post a message on their website about Obama’s work there to clear his name. Look, if you like McCain’s tax policy, energy policy, and health care plan, vote for him. But don’t make this very important election about urban legends, falsehoods, and guilt by association. Your vote is too important.

    “Read his book, he lays out his values and explains why he holds those values in a very reasonable way.”

    I have – and to quote Barack Obama in “Dreams of My Father”:

    “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed necolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated. But this strategy alone couldn’t provide the distance I wanted, from Joyce or my past. After all, there were thousands of so-called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerated. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”

    At worst, this exudes militant racism; at best this exudes cultural confusion…

    Whichever, this cannot be the desired quality of any U.S. President…

    ummmm you should make one of these for Palin and her “bridge to no where”
    or about every lie McCain has said about Obama and how he will “raise your taxes”
    haha ohhh ..wow talk talk talk about liars. since half of the shit said here isnt true, I wonder does any one have any actual facts to back up what there saying?
    probably not.

    I am one of the aforementioned “well educated Obama supporters.” Most of my friends and family are too, so I was curious to find out why some people don’t like him. I googled the phrase “why people don’t like Obama” and this came up. I’ve gotta say that after reading hundreds of comments it was disappointed; almost none are based in any kind of fact. Comments like “he has no core values” have little or no meaning. He has very simply laid out his values. Read his book, he lays out his values and explains why he holds those values in a very reasonable way. He has laid out detailed proposals on education to healthcare to tax policy. And all of these proposals are a function of his values. He has led an upstanding campaign thus far in stark contrast to McCain’s low road, misleading tactics. I would encourage anyone to go out to factcheck.org. Read the misrepresentations of both candidates, Obama’s truth stretching is a far cry from McCain’s complete falsehoods. Anyone see the “sex ed” ad? Absolutely deplorable. How can anyone support a candidate that has that little respect for voters’ intellegence.

    To those who question what Obama stands for, tell me this: what does McCain stand for? What is his stance on education? Does he have a stance? He never mentions it. Obama has innovative ideas like expanding the charter school system, which he’s already done in the state senate, giving money to kids to go to college in exchange for community service. Even if you don’t agree with his ideas, at least he has some. McCain only mentions healthcare in vague generalities (“I’ll make healthcare more affordable”) or when he is misrepresenting Obama’s healthcare proposal (“It’ll force small business to cut jobs and put a bureaucrat between you and your doctor”). Both are untrue – Obama’s plan calls for an exemption for small businesses from the plan and also allows you to keep your current plan. I’m sure to the current uninsureds, they would rather have a bureaucrat between them and their doctor rather than have no doctor at all. McCain says that he’s for renewables but has proposed no funds for research. Obama is proposing $150B in research. This needs to be a priority and yet McCain doesn’t take seriously in terms of actually doing something.

    This rarely gets brought up, but McCain finished in the bottom 5 in his class at the Naval Academy. Granted, it’s a difficult school, but so is Harvard Law where Obama finished summa cum laude. While graduating at the top of your class certainly doesn’t qualify you to be president, graduating in the bottom five should eliminate you from the running. Think back to school about the people who finished at the bottom of your class. Could you imagine them running anything let alone your country?

    The bottom line is, it seems to me that people are looking for reasons not to like Obama. It is very sad.

      WHY DOESN’T BARACK MAKE AVAILABLE HIS TRANSCRIPTS?

  • Michelle

    I never heard so many haters in my life. Some Democrates would rather vote for McCain than vote for a black man, everybody wanna say its not about race but the thought of havin a black president just pisses white people off. I hope he win so i can rub it in every white persons face for the next 4 years
