    -------------------
    I find it's an interesting presentation....
    I differ with it in as much of what it alludes to as 'similar' I find are points of flip-flop presentations and statements given by Obama to appeal to the demographics of his audience at the time. Perhaps, I might be more correct in saying instead of 'flip-flops', I have not seen him make such a firm statement on many of these issues as to be certain that he has a stand.... or intentionally wording his presentation design to leave us with the sub-liminal suggestion that we see agreement when there is no proving him.

    The only record that we have is the offices and positions he's held. The only proof we have, other than his word, is his life style and the footprint of his support in voting or failure to vote and legislation he's supported and passed, or prevented or avoided. The latter is more important to me than any other evidence and objectively........ I find no reason to support him.

    I agree completely. It is related to there not being much difference with McCain. Bush, McCain, Obama, and the Democrats shoved this 850 billion bailout down our throats. All of them are liberal, socialist engineers.

    Yep, it enforces the saying you can run but you can't hide.

    I don't know about buying stocks in banks, that sounds like government going too far.

    Ouch, that would look bad but not in the light of McCain's 95% agreement voting record. Then 20 doesn't sound so bad.

    Maybe there's hope for you, yet.
