    This post is from the "Rush" thread:

    [​IMG] RE: Lies of Rush Limbaugh
    Not that it matters now, but I think the point in pointing out that he was "less-than black", was in response to the idea that Black Americans would vote for him simply BECAUSE he's black, and not because he's the better candidate.

    Considering how many of our Black Christian Brothers and Sisters did just that, its justified... Because as a Christian, they couldn't vote for him, right? But many did. (end of quote)

    *************

    But like I said, it doesn't matter now



    It could matter - in 2012. Will those who voted for Obama simply because he is black still vote for him for the same reason again in four years?

    I imagine it will matter then, but I hope the "novelty" will have worn off for every voter, and we'll be considering "whether we're better off" than we were four years ago. My guess is, looking at the ridiculous welfare state he's creating, a good many of us will think that answer is yes, but perhaps more of us will have come to our senses about the rest of his policies.

    I don't think it will be as much of an issue, but it will probably be in the background. 2008 made history. 2012 won't have the same level of significance.

    Just watch out in 2020 or '24, if Obama gets a second term... If Hillary can run two terms after her husband's stint, I betcha Michelle will consider giving it a go. :eek:

    Those who voted for Obama because he's black are JUST AS RACIST AND PREDJUDICED as those who didn't vote for him for the same reason.

    People voted for Obama because he was obviously the best candidate. After a few months under Obama it will become obvious how much more capable he is than GW.

    Not the people I talked to. And I talked to a lot of folks.
    Many of them were voting against GW. And they had no ideal what the issues were except they wanted the troop out of the combat zone.

    Thanks goodness Obama is withdrawing the troops out of Iraq and Afag!

    Bolding mine.

    This is a sad commentary on the travesty of American politics. And I really beg to differ with your following statement. After a few months under Obama, it will become obvious what a terrible mistake the majority of the nation made, and we'll be stuck for the following three and a half years trying to tread water.

    Was George W. Bush the greatest president? No, but I think it will be up to history to decide in the grand scheme how he will rate. But I predict that we as a body of Americans have made a great error in judgment, and will be forced to pay. I hope I'm wrong, for all our sakes, and certainly for the sake of my preborn son. But I fear the direction our country is headed in, and because of that fear, I will be watching every move Mr. Obama makes. EDIT: Not just Mr. Obama, but our Legislative and Judicial Branches as well. I believe I'm a big enough man to admit when I'm wrong, so if I turn out to be, check back in just under 4 years and I'll post my apology.

    There is nothing in the Bible that says you can't vote for Obama so I didn't think much of this post. Just more abortion rhetoric.

    You realize that the "quote" in my post was not mine - I was quoting Creyn from another thread.

    But I do find it very hard to respect somone who does not respect life himself.

    Abortion rhetoric.

    The sickness pervades. Jesus knows better the hearts of men who call themselves Christian, but vote for abortion. Jesus knows better.

    Who are you trying to fool?

    Edit - And don't tell me if you voted for Obama you didn't vote for abortion... its one of his central pillars, and very nearly the first thing he did in office was make abortions easier to get. A vote for Obama was a vote for abortion.
