He has an excellent chance of winning.
I've never denied it.
I said he is out of touch with the political middle, and his views confirm it.
He has been able to gain lots of support by giving flowery speeches with little substance.
Obama speaks --
'I believe America is ready for change.
As President, I will usher in a new era.
The old way of doing things isn't good enough anymore.
We have to move forward.
Looking to the past will keep us there.
Things are going to be different from now on.
We aren't going to do things the same way we always have.
Change isn't easy but it is necessary.
I ask you to join me in bringing about change that will benefit our children and make us a strong nation.
This election is very important because it's the first opportunity many of you have ever had to vote for something other than the same ole same ole.
We cannot pass this opportunity by.
We must seize this chance to bring about positive change and build a better America.
America is a land of promise, and it's our duty to make sure those promises are fulfilled.
Are you with me?'
*crowd cheers wildly, women swoon, bodies push toward the podium hoping to shake hands with the one who has offered them this hope*
What did he say?
Lots of cool sound bites that will be played over and over by the pathetic American media.
Today's news consists of 10 second sound bites of the campaign sandwiched in between a 2 minute news feature on which car dealership in town is offering $2.99 gas guarantees and another 2 minute feature on 'How to Pack for your Vacation --- Unwrinkled'
Do the MSM examine the fact that Obama favors forcing women into any future military draft?
Do the MSM cover the fact that Obama's health care plan provides free health care for illegal aliens?
Do the MSM cover the relationship between Obama and terrorist/Pentagon bomber Bill Ayers?
Do the MSM report Obama's bald faced lies during the Jeremiah Wright controversy that 'Wright acknowledged his remarks were offensive' when no such had happened?
Do the MSM cover Obama's ultra thin resume , his disdain and ignorance of foreign affairs, his dodging of tough votes in the Illinois legislature?
Change, change , change. That's what they quote him saying.
You're in for change if he's elected alright. None of it good.
And he stands a very good chance of getting elected. I rated him in a previous thread as a 2-1 favorite and I'll stand by that as of now. He's still the most likely winner.
But it's not because he's a political centrist, or has any real qualifications.
But he sure talks purty, don't he?
