A Subdued Reaction to Obama Speech

Vanity Fair Party
Vanity Fair/Google Party (Photo: Mary Ann Akers)

Here's a scene from the Google/Vanity Fair party around 8:15 p.m. MT, as Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech. As you can see, not everyone was aroused.

Too many martoonis!

Not to be stereotypical, but stereotypes exist for a reason whether we like them or not. This woman looks like the "typical republican," if I may, in a lavish environment, boozing off high-end alcohol (i.e., a martini, not a blue-collar beer), and wearing about what looks like an $11,000 outfit complete with the monster pearl neckless.

So yes, I'm sure she is very, very scared of her taxes and where her millions are going. In that sense she is probably not passed out from a lack of arousal during Obama's acceptance speach but rather a self-contrived depression of the inevitable: a democratic president.

The last comment is a joke I'm sure. Google and Vanity Fair have no Republican employees. The poor soul in the picture is simply responding vicerally to the exciting and innovative content of Obama's speech.

I think she might have either fainted from excitement, or disappointment that Barack gave a typical liberal speech (though he delivered it very well). I was thinking that except for a few lines, this could have been John Kerry's speech from 2004. More taxes, bigger government, move towards socialized health care. Oh and by the way we'll defend this country (right).

What was the purpose of this pic? You ALWAYS have some underlying snarky purpose, so this time is was what? That some people drink too much at conventions? what did that have to do with the speech? just wapo's way of jabbing at the speech in frustration, maybe? can't figure it out, but it's wapo, so now i'll stop.

Wow, Thank God that was not me...I must say that we only want our moral values to come back into the country for our children.

Photo journalists captured worthy news event. Soliciting public comment is meaningful if there is issue to be discussed. Why not introduce a comic instead of using a photo for humor at a person's expense.

Lets focus on the candidates and this election and applaud the volunteers for a job well done to host the convention. Lets not do woman bashing to reinforce the stereotype.

'McBush wish I can have a 3rd term can never achieve and hasn't acheived in 72 yrs of life what Senator Barrack Obama has achieved in just a few years. He is the REAL UNITER AND DIPLOMATIC GENIOUS. Michelle said it best 3 months ago, "Barrack is BRILLIANT'. McBush 3rd term never was and will never be brilliant...He is nothing more than a WARMONGERING ANGRY GRUMPY OLD WHITE MAN.

He is the PUPPETED MOUTHPIECE OF THE RNC. McShame has engaged OUR AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE WITH NOTHING MORE THAN LIES, FEAR, AND SMEARS'

He is INSULTING to our AMERICAN PROGRESS. He would hold us hostage in FEAR ADS....We're not buying it 'NOT 4 MORE YEARS 4 MORE MONTHS....8 IS ENOUGH McBush mcsame is COMMITTED AND WOULD COMMIT US YOUNG AMERICANS TO A MISTAKE!!!!

What is totally scary about this pick is the fact McCain has only really spoken to her for a couple of hours and then picks her for VP. This isn't his pick, it is the religious nut case pick. They didn't get their way from God, he didn't smite Obama's speech. He had to pick a Creationist.

LaRouche to Putin: Georgia Provocation Was British-Run, Through Cheney
Increase Decrease

August 28, 2008 (LPAC)--Lyndon LaRouche today responded to a CNN interview by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, in which he charged that the U.S. was behind the Georgian attack on Russian peacekeepers and the South Ossetian population, earlier this month. Putin claimed to have evidence that American military advisers were engaged with Georgian Special Forces units in combat against Russian peacekeepers, and that such actions had to be the result of orders from higher-ups.

While agreeing with the facts presented by Prime Minister Putin, LaRouche offered a crucial clarification: ``It is wrong to view this as an American operation,'' LaRouche explained. ``This came from the British, and the British operated principally through one of their key assets in the Bush White House, Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney is a documented asset of the faction in Britain that is out to provoke a World War III confrontation between Russia and the United States.''

LaRouche continued, ``Cheney is a British stooge, and that must be understood, for Prime Minister Putin and others, like Gen. Ivashov, to properly assess the strategic context of these provocations. Cheney is a British stooge, and this Georgia provocation is a British strategic operation, utilizing highlevel American assets. Prime Minister Putin has his facts correct, but his analysis is not correct, insofar as he leaves out the crucial British role.''

LaRouche further warned that both of the presumed U.S. Presidential candidates, Senator John McCain and Senator Barack Obama, will likely fall in line with this British-steered World War III provocation. In Obama's case, he implicitly is a British agent, through his close ties and allegiance to a known asset of the British Foreign Office, George Soros. In the case of John McCain, he is ideologically susceptible to precisely such a British-orchestrated provocation.

LaRouche concluded: ``The British intent is to bring the world to the edge of a new Cuba Missile Crisis-type confrontation, and they are running this policy through U.S. operations that they control, centered around our Vice President, Dick Cheney.''

Obama the empty suit can’t win this election. He's a disaster.

He should have taken advantage of the Clinton’s popularity and the love still felt for them throughout the world.

Obama never won the primary. Obama stole it from Hillary.The world watched the DNC hand the nomination to Obama by silencing voters.

Obama has destroyed the Democratic Party because of his own self centered narcissist personality.

The media can say what they want about Obama winning the primary but voters know the truth, especially Clinton supporters. Obama ignored voters. Florida and Michigan will never forget it.

Obama and Michelle were given a second chance to put Hillary on his ticket, but instead chose to hog the glory and embarrass the Democratic Party.

Obama could have won these women over.
Now McCain is winning the Hillary women with his VP pick.
Obama is risky, radical and not a great patriot.

Remember: Rezko, (the criminal), Reverend Wright (the anti Semitic racist) and William Ayers ( Obama’s coworker = domestic terrorist)

God is watching and the world is staring at our unfair voting process.

The Democratic Party is embarrassing.

I am absolutely astounded by the outrage, and hostility against Barack Obama and his family. I get it! JEALOUSY DOES THAT TO A PERSON. IT MAKES THEM GREEN WITH ENVY. TO EVERYONE WHO WAS BULLIED IN ELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOL: STAND UP AND TAKE A BOW. WHAT WE HAVE ARE ADULTS ACTING LIKE JEALOUS CHILDREN. ADULTS (AND I USE THAT TERM LOOSELY) WHO ARE SO INSECURE AND IMMATURE; THAT THEY ATTACK PEOPLE BY CALLING THEM NAMES. BUT WHAT IS FUNNY IS THAT THEY USE TERMINOLOGY THAT THEY CAN NOT DEFINE. PEOPLE, WHO CALL BARACK ARROGANT; OBVIOUSLY DO NOT KNOW THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD. AN ARROGANT PERSON IS ALSO A NARCISSIST: INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT LIVE, OR PLAY BY THE RULES. Both GEORGE BUSH AND JOHN MCCAIN LIFE STORIES ARE PROOF OF THEIR UNBRIDLE RAGE ANGAINST THE RULES OF ORDER AND DECENCY. THEY ARE SO BAD...THEIR OWN PARTY MEMBERS TREAT THEM LIKE THEY ARE PARIAHS. WHY HAVE SO MANY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AVOIDING THEM. TWELVE OF THE REMAINING SENATE MEMBERS; ABSOLUTELY REFUSED TO ATTEND THE GOP CONVENTION...AND THAT WAS LONG BEFORE THE HURRICANE WAS PREDICTED.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY: ONE PARTY TRIED TO UPSTAGE ANOTHER PARTY'S CONVENTION. HISTORICALLY; BEFORE JOHN MCCAIN; THE OPPOSING PARTY HAS ALWAYS STAYED OUT OF THE MEDIA. THEY ALWAYS TREATED THE OTHER'S EVENT WITH RESPECT!!! JOHN MCCAIN DID NOT DO THAT!!! HE VIOLATED WHAT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN VIOLATED. AND NOW, HE IS PAYING FOR IT. PALIN IS GOING TO CAUSE HIM "GREAT PAIN". AS I UNDERSTAND IT; WHEN THE SECRETS START COMING OUT; THEY CAN DESTROY A PERSON'S OPPORTUNITY. WELL, THERE IS BONAFIDE EVIDENCE THAT GOV. SARAH PALIN IS A PATHALOGICAL LIAR. SHE IS ABOUT TO BE EXPOSED. THE PROBLEM WITH THE GOP...IS ARROGANCE...THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW. THEY DID NOT THINK THAT ANYONE WOULD LEARN HER SECRETS. THEY CAN BE GOOGLE. THE INFORMATION IS INDISPUTABLE. I FOUND SOME INFORMATION THAT BLOWS HER SO-CALLED WONDERFUL LIFE STORY - RIGHT OUT OF THE WATER. ALL OF YOU ARE IN FOR A RUDE AWAKENING. HAVEN'T YOU LEARNED ANYTHING FROM THE PAST EIGHT YEARS???!!! THE GOP HAS STOOPED TO A BRAND NEW LOW!!! THEY LIED TO GET US INTO THIS WAR!!! AND THEY ARE LYING ABOUT HER LIFE STORY...AND I CAN PROVE IT. JUST START WITH HER WIKIPEDIA PAGE. GO INTO THE VERY LONG LIST OF REFERENCE ITEMS. THE LIST IS UP TO ABOUT 120 ITEMS. LOOK VERY CAREFULLY. CHECK OUT WHAT HER HOME TOWN NEWSPAPERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE BIRTH OF "HER SON, TRIG". THE CONFERENCE THAT SHE SAID THAT SHE WAS AT IN TEXAS...THE REPUBLICAN'S CONFERENCE...DOES NOT EXIST...THERE IS NO RECORD OF IT - ANYWHERE. NOW, THERE WAS A GOVERNOR'S CONFERENCE AT YALE UNIVERSITY. GUESS WHAT!!! SHE WAS NOT THERE. SO, THAT THROWS A WRENCH INTO HER STORY. AND OH BOY!!! HER STORY IS A BIG GIANT WHOPPER!!! WHEN I HEARD IT; I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS ONE MORE MANIPULATION...TO GET PEOPLE TO FEEL SORRY FOR HER AND APPLAUD HER AT THE SAME TIME!!! SHE IS SUPERWOMAN!!! IS SHE???!!! CHECK IT OUT: 18 APRIL 2008, U.S. GOVERNORS TO GATHER AT YALE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE/REUTERS. GOV. ARNOLD SCHWAZENEGGER WAS THE KEY NOTE SPEAKER. LOOK IT UP. THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT, DATED: 16 APRIL 2008. ACCORDING TO GOV. SARAH PALIN, SHE WAS THE KEY NOTE SPEAKER AT A REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS CONFERENCE IN TEXAS...THAT WEEK. LIKE I SAID, "THE EVIDENCE IS INDISPUTABLE". SO FAR, I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT A GOVERNORS CONFERENCE...IN OR NEAR DALLAS...IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR.

I STAND CORRECTED: AFTER SEARCHING FOR THE PAST TWO DAYS; I DID FIND THAT THERE WAS A FORUM OF GOVERNORS THAT GOT TOGETHER IN TEXAS. ONLY 10 GOVERNORS ATTENDED THE FORUM. IT WAS HOSTED BY TEXAS GOV. RICK PERRY. TEXAS RAILROAD COMMISSIONER MICHAEL WILLIAMS WAS THE MODERATOR FOR THE PANEL. THEY WERE THERE TO DISCUSS ENERGY. THIS WAS A BRIEF ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS PAPER, DATED 16 APRIL 2008. BASED UPON THE VERY BRIEF ARTICLE THE GOVERNORS HELD A NEWS CONFERENCE THAT DAY TO DISCUSS THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE. THE EVENT WAS SCHEDULED FOR THE 17TH OF APRIL 2008.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM CORRECTING MYSELF. THAT BEING SAID; ACCORDING TO THE LOCAL NEWSPAPERS IN ALASKA (THE FAIRBANKS AND THE ANCHORAGE PAPERS); NO ONE BELIEVES HER STORY ABOUT THE WAY TRIG BEING HER SON. PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH HER EVERYDAY; SAID THAT THERE WERE NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF HER EVER BEING PREGNANT. SHE "ANNOUNCED" HER PREGNANCY AFTER SHE WAS SEVEN MONTHS. THERE IS A VIDEO ON VIMEO THAT PROMOTES TOURISM TO JUNEAU, ALASKA. AS OF YESTERDAY, THE POST DATE SAID, "5 MONTHS AGO". ACCORDING TO THE CONVERSATION, THE VIDEO WAS FILMED AFTER HER BIRTHDAY, 11 FEBRUARY 2008. HER SON WAS BORN ONE MONTH EARLY, AND WEIGHED MORE THAN 6 POUNDS. HE WAS BORN 18 APRIL 2008. SO, IN THE VIDEO, SHE SHOULD BE ABOUT 7 MONTHS PREGNANT. SHE DOES NOT LOOK PREGNANT...EVEN WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE A LITE-WEIGHT JACKET. HER "COURAGEOUS" 8-12 HOUR FLIGHT FROM DALLAS TO ALASKA; WHILE IN LABOR; AND NO ONE QUESTIONED HER...DID NOT MAKE ANY SINCE TO ME. SO I DID RESEARCH TO SEE IF I WAS OVER-REACTING. NO. I WAS NOT. PEOPLE WHO WORK AND SOCIALIZE WITH HER EVERY DAY...SAY THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE A CLUE. FRIENDS WHO HAVE FRIENDS; WHO HAVE BABIES...CAN USUALLY TELL AROUND THE SECOND TRIMESTER THAT THEIR FRIEND IS PREGNANT; ESPECIALLY, IF THEIR FRIEND IS SMALL OR PETITE...EVEN AVERAGE SIZED. SO HOW IS IT NOT ONE PERSON, WHO KNEW HER VERY WELL; AND SAW HER EVERY DAY...NEVER EVEN NOTICED OR SUSPECTED THAT SHE WAS PREGNANT??? EVERYONE WAS TAKEN BY SURPRISE. AND THEN ONE MONTH LATER; SHE SHOWS UP WITH A BABY??? THE ARTICLES GIVE MORE DETAIL. HER FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS HAVE ALL DRAWN THE SAME CONCLUSION; BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY ALL GOT TO WITNESS FIRST HAND. CHECK WIKIPEDIA!!! AND THEN FOLLOW THE TRAIL...IT IS ALL THERE. NOW, REPORTERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE IN ALASKA; DOING RESEARCH...EVERYTHING IS GOING TO COME OUT!!!

Why switch parties to not vote for Obama. Are these people true Democrats?

Picture this: You are on a football team. There are 2 quarterbacks. One runs the ball the other passes the ball. Both have the same objective in mind; make a touchdown. You like passing the ball, but the coach(voters) say we will run it. You are upset. You quite the team. Go to the other team. They welcome you; let you on the team. It makes them look good! BUT, they never let you in the game! Are you Happy?

I read in a magazine about senador obama activist muslim half brother..

His name is Obongo and he is a muslim
and he is trying to overcome the goverment in Kenya.
I read that Obongo and Obama support Odinga that wants to install a conservative Muslim rule in that country.

I would like to know more about this interesting topic,

Can anyone provide more info..

Barack Obama would not consider the most qualified woman as a vice-president...under any circumstances.

John McCain has selected a qualified governor as his vice-president.
Barack Obama played cutthroat politics to make sure he was elected in Chicago and made sure a female incumbent was not on the ticket. He did the same thing to Hillary with Florida and Michigan where two victories for Hillary were at stake.

He cuts the throats of women...to make sure he gets elected. Women...you need to see it for what it is....a pattern of dislike for women and cuthroat politics.

I am not an analyst, so I will not analyze why. Sounds like he picks women whom he sees as vulnerable and comes in for the kill...but actions speak louder than words. Right now.....John McCain has scored points with women! We will see where it goes.

Women our time has come...and we need to fight for it by looking at the actions, the patterns of behavior, the condescending attitude and the cutthroat politics against women.

WITHIN SECONDS OF MY 12:05PM POSTING: THE MCCAIN/PALIN CAMP HAS ANNOUNCED THAT GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN'S OLDEST DAUGHTER IS...GULP!!!...PREGNANT!!! THAT TRUMPS ME!!! IT WHAT SARAH'S FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS SAY IS TRUE; THIS WILL BE HER DAUGHTER'S SECOND BABY. THE BABY IS DUE IN DECEMBER.

ACCORDING TO THE VERY RELIGIOUS RIGHT: TEEN AGERS HAVE SEX AND GET PREGNANT BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO FILL A NEED. THEY NEED THE LOVE AND SUPPORT OF THEIR PARENTS. ALSO, ACCORDING TO THE VERY RELIGIOUS RIGHT: TEEN GIRLS ARE GETTING PREGNANT BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE A HEALTHY HOME. THEY DO NOT HAVE A MOM OR A DAD THEIR TO TEACH AND TO MODEL "GOOD CHRISTIAN MORALS!!!" GO AND DIG UP THE TAPES AND BOOKS OF JAMES DOBSON; RUSH LIMBAUGH; BILL BENNETT; AND SO MANY OTHERS, WHO BLAME TEEN PREGNANCY ON THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

BARACK WAS CORRECT: THE ISSUE IS NOT ABORTION! THE ISSUE IS "WHY" DO WE HAVE SO MANY ABORTIONS! WE HAVE THEM BECAUSE SO MANY TEENAGERS, AND WOMEN WHO ARE NOT READY TO BECOME MOTHERS ARE GETTING PREGNANT. THEY REGRET IT; AND THEN CHOOSE TO UNDO THE PREGNANCY! THE BETTER CHOICE WOULD HAVE BEEN; NOT TO GET PREGNANT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

THE OTHER ISSUE IS THIS: GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN'S AMBITIONS COME BEFORE HER FAMILY!!!
SHE IS TOO BUSY TO TAKE CARE OF HER FAMILY!!! IF TRIG IS INDEED SARAH'S SON; THEN WHY DIDN'T SHE GET A NANNY TO COME ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. INSTEAD, HER DAUGHTER IS SEEN IN ALL OF THE PHOTOS - HOLDING BABY TRIG. IT SEEMS TO ME: DAD WORKS FOR BIG OIL (BP); PART OF THE YEAR. THE OTHER PART OF THE YEAR; HE IS OFF ON A FISHING BOAT. ACCORDING TO THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL AND THE OTHER WILDLIFE CHANNELS; THOSE BOATS ARE OUT TO SEA FOR WEEKS AT A TIME. THE REST OF THE YEAR...FOUR YEARS IN A ROW; DAD HAS WON THE SNOWMOBILE - 2000 MILE RACE!!! WOW!!! DAD SURE IS BUSY!!!

SO IF DAD IS GONE WEEKS AT A TIME...AND MOM IS BUSY TRAVELING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY...WHO IS AT HOME TO TAKE CARE OF THE CHILDREN. APPARENTLY, ACCORDING TO THE PHOTOS: GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN'S OLDEST DAUGHTER HAS HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCE BEING A MOM TO HER TWO YOUNGER SISTERS!!! LOOK AT THE STAGE PHOTOS FROM FRIDAY; HER DAUGHTERS DO NOT LOOK HAPPY OR THRILLED ABOUT THEIR MOM BEING ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. AND LISTEN TO WHAT GOV. PALIN SAID WHEN SHE MADE HER SPEECH; THAT GOT BOOOOOSSS; FROM REBPUBLICANS!!! SHE SAID THAT HER CHILDREN WERE ALL ON THE BUS!!! AND THAT HER OLDEST DAUGHTER WAS TAKING CARE OF THE CHILDREN!!!

I FEEL SORRY FOR GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN'S CHILDREN. IT SEEMS LIKE THEY NEED ADULTS TAKE THE TIME OUT OF THEIR NARCISSTIC LIVES AND PUT THEM FIRST!!! ISN'T JOHN MCCAIN'S "NEW" CAMPAIGN SLOGAN: COUNTRY FIRST!!!??? I THOUGHT THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS ALL ABOUT: "FAMILY FIRST"; "FAMILY VALUES"; "BLAH - BLAH - BLAH" BUT NO ONE IS SUPPOSED TO BRING ANY OF THAT UP!!! WHY? BECAUSE OF NO ONE IS SUPPOSED TO DISCUSS WHAT JOHN MCCAIN DID TO HIS FIRST WIFE AND FAMILY. ALSO, NO ONE IS SUPPOSED TO MENTION THE FACT THAT THE DAUGHTER THAT JOHN AND CINDY MCCAIN ADOPTED FROM INDIA WILL NOT INHERIT AS MUCH AS THEIR OTHER CHILDREN. APPARENTLY, IN THEIR EYES...SHE IS NOT VALUED AS MUCH AS THEIR OTHER CHILDREN!! PLEASE NOTE: EVEN JOHN MCCAIN'S STEP-SON IS GOING TO INHERIT MORE THAN THE DAUGHTER THAT THEY ADOPTED!!! THE MCCAIN AND THE PALIN CHILDREN ARE GOING TO NEED SOME SERIOUS THERAPY WHEN THEY GROW UP!

ALSO, NO ONE IS SUPPOSED TO MENTION THAT SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN HAS SAID SOME PRETTY HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT CINDY MCCAIN...IN PUBLIC. APPARENTLY, HE CALLED HER A C*** AND A B****; WHILE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL...WHICH YEAR; I DO NOT KNOW. BUT, WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN A BOOK THAT IS SUPPOSED TO COME OUT SOON...OR IS ALREADY OUT. MOST RECENTLY, JOHN MCCAIN OFFERED CINDY MCCAIN UP FOR THE STURGIS, CHIP QUEEN CONTEST!!! THIS WAS TELEVISED!!! IT IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET!!! THIS WAS DONE AT THE BIKERS CONVENTION...RALLY...EVENT THIS PAST SUMMER.

IT SEEMS THAT BOTH JOHN MCCAIN AND SARAH PALIN HAVE A PROBLEM WITH USING POOR JUDGEMENT IN THEIR FAMILIES. ARE THESE THE PEOPLE THAT WE WANT TO TRUST WITH OUR FAMILIES.

PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT A DELEGATE FOR BARACK OBAMA!!! I AM A 45 YEAR OLD WIFE; MOTHER; AND VETERAN; WHO IS TIRED OF BEING LIED TO BY THE "VERY RIGHT REPUBLICAN GOP"!!! I AM A MODERATE. I AM A FULL-GOSPEL CHRISTIAN, WHO LOVES MY GOD AND MY COUNTRY!!! I AM A WHOLE-HEARTED PATRIOT!!!

I AM SICK AND TIRED OF WATCHING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WHO HAS BEEN IN CONTROL FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS (THE DEMOCRATS HAVE ONLY BEEN IN CHARGE LESS THAN TWO YEARS.) THEY CAN NOT GET ANYTHING DONE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH VOTES TO OVERRIDE PRESIDENT BUSH'S VETO AUTHORITY!!! ALSO, WE HAVE THE FILIBUSTER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BLOCKING PROGRESS. ACCORDING TO THE GOP: "PROGESS IS BAD". THAT IS WHY THEY CALL DEMOCRATS: "THE PROGRESSIVE LIBERALS".
THEY SAY IT LIKE IT IS "HORRIBLE TO BE PROGRESSIVE". IF THEY ARE CORRECT IN THEIR ASSESSMENT: THEN THEY ACTUALLY HATE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. WHAT THEY DID WAS PROGRESSIVE. WHAT ABRAHAM LINCOLN DID WAS PROGRESSIVE. WHAT THOMAS EDISON DID WAS PROGRESSIVE. GET MY POINT!!! SCIENTIST; ABOLISHIONISTS; THE GREAT PHILOSOPHERS; THE GREAT ARTISTS; AND SO MANY OTHERS...LIKE ARCHITECTS...ETC.: HISTORICALLY - WERE AND ARE PROGRESSIVE. EVEN MOTHER THERESA (WHOM CINDY MCCAIN HAS NEVER MET...JOHN MCCAIN LIED DUTING THE RICK WARREN FORUM...WHEN HE CLAIMED THAT MOTHER THERESA ENCOURAGED HIS WIFE TO TAKE THE LITTLE GIRL HOME. MOTHER THERESA WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD, HAVING SURGERY; WHEN CINDY MCCAIN WAS IN INDIA. CHECK THE RECORD. ALL OF IT IS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE. THE MCCAIN'S VERSION OF THAT STORY HAS CHANGE MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS.) WAS A PROGRESSIVE!!!

SO WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! STOP BELIEVING THE LIES!!! STOP DRINKING THE REPUBLICAN KOOL-AID!!!

A VERY CONCERNED, PATRIOTIC WOMEN, WHO IS OVER THE AGE OF 40.

P.S. THE STORY OF GOV. SARAH PALIN'S DAUGHTER WAS NOT LEAKED BY THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN. IF YOU CHECK WIKIPEDIA...THE LOCAL PAPERS IN ALASKA: THE FAIRBANKS AND ANCHORAGE PAPERS; THIS STORY BROKE WAY BACK IN APRIL 2008...LONG BEFORE THE REST OF US EVER HEARD OF SARAH PALIN!!! HAD SHE BEEN PROPERLY VETTED...THIS NEVER WOULD HAVE COME OUT THIS WAY. GOVERNOR PALIN'S DAUGHTER'S BUSINESS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN MADE WORLD WIDE NEWS...SOME MOM!!! IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LIMITED TO THE PEOPLE OF ALASKA!!!

THIS IS MORE ABOUT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S JUDGEMENT; THIS IS NOT ABOUT GOVERNOR PALIN'S DAUGHTER. PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE NOT USED HER DAUGHTER'S NAME; SHE IS NOT THE ISSUE...HER MOM AND THE GOP - GRAND OLD PARTY - ARE THE ISSUE!!!

Wonder if there is truth to Obama leaking Palin's pregnant daughter story to media, then publicly denounces it for political points? If so, is it because to distract the public of two of his personal issues that has been circulating all over the internet for 2 years... And they are:

1. His sex and drug rendevous with Larry Sinclar implicating closeted homosexuality - google "Obama's closeted homosexuality" and,

2. Has Obama's birth certificate been vetted? Is it legitimate? His citizenship is questioned because there are family members who witnessed his birth in Kenya? His mother married and divorced Indonesian man who adopted Obama? The actual birth certificate document confirms to be a forged copy. Apparently candidates have to be citizens to be eligible to run for President.....

To Sadie Rose;

How can a woman be 5 months pregnant within 5 months of giving birth? Most women are not fertle within the first 90 days of giving birth, and I am not a woman so I don't know, but I can not imagine a woman going out and having causal sex within days of giving birth.

This poor women probably fell asleep somewhere after the first 2 trillion worth of droning promises Barack! enumerated.

Good for her since Barack! was only half done that point.

I think she woke up later to rattle her pearls in lieu of applause.

That was my reaction, too.

No matter how hard the media has tried to pump up Obama, even with his boring liberal speech--described by a fawning liberal pundit "as a symphony"--the reality is that is he is a typical liberal politican with a flair for rhetoric. The fact that the media would go after Palin in the despicable way they have while defending Obama's "judgement" for the last 18 months when that judgement on Iraq and close associates has proven to be so wrong, just shows that the one-term senator has no clothes, despite all the the liberal media attempts to say otherwise.
I am disgusted by the double standands of the press. Where were they and Daily Kos during the Edwards affair?? Why hasn't the press taken Obama to task over his lying over his partial abortion vote. Why wasn't there outrage when access to the Annenberg files was denied to the public by the University of Illinois?
And why now all the talk about experience when the person on the top of the Demcoratic ticket has less executive experience than the VP on the Republican ticket?
The American people are fair, and as a former Clinton supporter, I will never, never cast a ballot for an empty suit supported by such a vicious, biased group of people. They have lost all credibility, in my view. Just look at the US magazine this week. The blatant misogny of the liberal press is breath-taking.

The posts by Shrill Voiced Shadie Rose beg one question: How do you know this to be true?

She didn't miss much, just BHO and his usual promises of fixing absolutely everything that is wrong with America.

This post shows some journalists have become absolutely unimaginative.

My goodness, a funny picture and a silly moment. Obviously this woman had an exhausting week and just conked out in a dark room with a TV on. Lighten up, people!
