Obama Lied, Credibility Died....

Yesterday, Barak Obama announced that he would forgo public funding for his presidential campaign, after vowing earlier on in the race that he would "aggressively pursue" an agreement with the Republican nominee to use public funds for his campaign, should he get the nomination. He even went so far as to affix his signature to said document. Of course, this was grandstanding on his part because at that time, Hillary was planning her inauguration and nobody thought Obama had a snowball's chance.

Is this what America really wants in a president? A guy who will say or do whatever is necessary to win? A man whose word and signature mean nothing? Sure, Obama can outraise McCain, but at what expense? I'm seeing a man who has no ethics, no morals, and does not back his grandiose words with actions, which can have far reaching consequences if this man is voted into the White House. We are still suffering the ill effects, to this day, of the spineless Carter administration's refusal to support the Shah of Iran....

This is a neophyte politician who expects us to take his word on where he stands, yet he doesn't appear to stand for anything that you can put your finger on. At least McCain has a record as a Senator, and whether you like him or not. Personally, I'm luke warm on him at best, but compared to Obama, he's downright stalwart! Evidently McCain's the closest thing we have to a statesman these days....and of course, I'm not all that happy about it, but I will vote for him anyway because I just can't stomach a man who promises everything to every one, then starts breaking his promises even before he can get elected! This kind of betrayal does not bode well for what he would do as president. As much as everybody hates George Bush, you gotta give the man credit for taking a stand on something and sticking to his guns, whether the feckless public likes it or not.

What is even more depressing is the comments I've been seeing on various websites and blogs(Washington Post and New York Times editorial comments) saying things like "I don't care that he changed his mind" or "I'm glad he did." To me, that's the equivalent of saying that you share Mr. Obama's lack of morals and ethics and that you support lying and subversion to accomplish your goals. In other words, you will lie or cheat to get what you want, so you don't understand why it's a big deal....after all everybody does it! Is this really a characteristic that the American people want in their President?

So much for hope and change. This is none other than politics as usual, and Obama is a willing tool for the left in the guise of a centrist. Puleeze.

Just like a republican...Don't post the facts when they are presented. It seems you wont post my original comment about the RP's lack of credibility....If you really want to have a debate post all comments..You can't win am argument when the facts are laid on the table...
I suppose there is a reason why you don't get many comments...You screen comments that are factual

Your comments, in all their foolish entirety will be posted for all the world to see what an Obamabot looks like.

Rock on, Darlin...

Obama changes his stands with the feckless wind of popular opinion and his candidacy will fade faster than Kerry :-)

I can't wait to here all of you howl when Obama turns on you...it will be delicious.

Your comments have all been posted. I'm not afraid of an Obamabot...your frothing at the mouth comments will serve to make YOU look silly, not me.

Rock on, Obamabot. Your method is the fastest way NOT to get your candidate elected. :)

You Republicans love calling people names..Shows how shallow and narrow minded you are

Lets try this again on the subject of credibility..What you did not post are my original comments...Just like FOX News...
See if you remember the following...said by the RP... There are weapons of mass destruction In Iraq...If the terrorist gain control of oil in Iraq gas will go to $4 a gallon...Guess the terrorist turned out to be the American government...Don't forget this one...If any one in my administration was involved with leaking information on CIA operative they will be dealt with severely... Bush only pardoned convicted felon Scooter Libby....I don't think that the RP can talk about credibility..but then again you count on people being uninformed and ignorant...

Look, I don't know where your original comments went and I'm under no obligation to allow them at all, but I will so that the world can see what sorts of lunatics Obama is attracting. Your first comment was probably eaten by Blogspot because you did something wrong posting it...in your fervor to out me as a horrid republican...wooooo!

If you are typical of the kind of supporter Obama has, then I'm even less inclined to vote for him, because I don't want to be in the same group with rabid partisans like you.

What about the facts dear??...Anything I said that was untrue point it out..You can't do that..Instead you call me a lunatic and completely ignore any of the facts I pointed to about the RP lack of credibility...You republicans live in a fairy tail. A true republican like yourself would never vote for a democrat..Go ahead and call him N*$%&..Its what all you right wing wackos call him behind closed doors anyway...Loser
