    that he wanted his supporters to help him change the greatest nation in the world:

    www.snopes.com/politics/obama/change.asp

    Someone started a thread a while about this. I wish I had checked Snopes at that time. I guess I am too trusting of some of the posters in this forum that they check things out before they post them.

    Yes, he did, if you include the written word as "said" it.

    You just proved it. :laugh:

    Basically Snopes says he didn't mean it that way.

    It's apparent that Snopes will be an Obama apologist for the rest of their campaign together.

    The truth is that it was written by a non-U.S. correspondent to Mark Steyn - a conservative.

    Then he deserves credit for having Obama pegged.

    Snopes has a well-earned reputation for digging out the facts - regardless of whether they fit the views, in this case, of the radical right.

    Forget it Ken, these neo-cons will never admit they are wrong concerning Obama.

    The good news is that Obama will probably win despite these right-wing fanatics!

    Go Obama! :thumbs:

    They also have a well deserved reputation for a biased presentation of their "facts".

    Amen, brother! We've had over 7 years now of the radical right destroying America's reputation around the world. It is well past time that this came to an end.

    And now we are finally seeing the fruits of the radical right-corporatist agenda as our economy falls into recession. Their house of cards could last only so long. This, too, must come to an end.

    Go Senator Obama!!!!

    It is fun to watch the neocon pigs squeal when they may not be in charge of the pen anymore! :laugh:

    In '00, too. Fortunately, since then I have seen the light, politically speaking.

    Hopefully, this includes restoring American prestige around the world and restoring American economic might domestically. :thumbs:

    That's cool, just as long as when you are bashing the right for ruining this country, I hope you accept your share of the blame.

    If blame is what you are after.


    M.P., you like that word "pig", a lot, don't you ?
