His majesty has a ways to go to get on the throne. I am starting to realize that the undecided voters are unwilling to admit to a biased pollster on the phone that they do not trust Obama.Posted by: xppc at November 2, 2008 6:45 AM
The arrogance and elitism of the liberals is offensive, but I couldn't help but laugh at this one :)Posted by: Conservative Economics at November 2, 2008 8:05 AM

From the USA Today, 4/8/2008
My comments are in [brackets].
Madelyn Dunham's views on race came into play in a speech Obama gave March 18 in Philadelphia designed to both denounce and defend his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
In the speech, Obama linked Wright and his grandmother when he said, "I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her by on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."
[With 'typical' white racists there are some things you might say with family that you would never say in public, not even in the presence of trusted co-workers, in a career that spanned over ten years. This is the allegation the o’bama lays against his own grandmother. But the o’bama (pbuh)never heard his pastor and mentor, the irreveRANT Jeremiah Wright, utter a racist or anti-american sentiment, publicly or privately, in a close relationship that lasted more than 10 years.]
Obama's campaign declined to make Dunham available for interviews or to say whether the Illinois senator alerted her before delivering the speech.
Dunham has repeatedly declined to comment to reporters, and Soetoro-Ng [the o’bama’s sister] declined to comment on Obama's speech about Wright or their grandmother's attitudes on race.
After the war [WWII], she [Dunham] attended UC-Berkeley, worked various jobs, then came to the Islands, where she joined the Bank of Hawaii in 1960.
Others who know Dunham were caught off guard by that [racist] mention in Obama's speech.
"Was she ambitious? She had to be to become a vice president," said Clifford Y.J. Kong, 82, who was a senior credit officer at the bank at the time. "She was a top-notch executive to get appointed. It was a tough world.
"I was real surprised that he [the o'bama (pbuh)indicated that," said Dennis Ching, who was a 23-year-old management trainee under Dunham beginning in 1966. "I never heard her say anything like that. I never heard her say anything negative about anything. And she never swore."
"That's the way it was," [Sam] Slom said. "Did people talk about race? We had local jokes … like that 'pake' (Chinese) guy or the 'yobo' (Korean) who did this or that. I certainly got my share of haole jokes."
Sam Slom, a Bank of Hawaii economist then, who is now a Republican state senator in Hawaii, recalls that as a part of the white — or "haole" — minority in Hawaii, he would regularly see housing ads that made no effort to hide racial preferences. He says he remembers ads that read, "No haoles" or "AJAs (Americans of Japanese ancestry) Only" or "No Japanese."
"I never heard Madelyn say anything disparaging about people of African ancestry or Asian ancestry or anybody's ancestry," Slom said.
Most of Dunham's close friends who knew her best are dead, Soetoro-Ng said. Several current and former Bank of Hawaii executives remember her as a tough boss with a soft side for those willing to work hard. [Code words for typical white racist.]

The o’bama says that conservatives are selfish because they do not want to ‘share’ their wealth with others. He compares these ‘selfish’ conservatives to himself, when as a child he ‘shared’ his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with his peers.
The fundamental differences are that the o’bama (pbuh) probably did not earn the money to buy the bread, peanut butter and jelly, and he probably did not make the sandwiches himself. Someone else, probably his own family, worked to earn the money to buy the peanut butter, then chose to make the sandwiches and chose to give them to the o’bama (pbuh) free from coercion, motivated only by love.
What the o’bama (pbuh) proposes is the the government take from the 'wealthy' under the power and authority of federal law, with severe penalties for non-compliance, and re-distrtibute the wealth as the o’bama (pbuh) sees fit.
[Want to tongue tie the o’bama? Make him define ‘wealthy’ and ‘fair share’ in concrete terms. The wizard of uuuuhhzzzz will suddenly appear.]
Now let us examine the example of generosity set by the o’bama (pbuh) with his own family. There is one brother living in a hut in severe poverty in Kenya and an aunt living in poverty in the projects in Boston, Massachussetts. The annual income of the o’bama is in well in excess of 250k, not including the salary of his spouse.
What has the o'bama (pbuh) done to re-distribute his own wealth to assist his own family?
How is the o’bama (pbuh) not the selfish ‘one’, even by his own definition?
[Note to the o’bama (pbuh): see webster’s definition of selfishness.]

Ha! Jon, don't know why you said that, but it was funny.
Anyway, a three-foot rise in sea level would swamp quite a few cities, and a six-foot rise would put a good bit of Florida under water.Posted by: Doug at November 3, 2008 11:52 AM

Janet, we'll have had Republicans in the White House for 20 of the last 28 years when Obama gets in office, and the Supreme Court hasn't done that badly over that time. Let the Democrats have some appointees too.Posted by: Doug at November 5, 2008 4:50 PM
