Yea, i'd like to know that it is ligit before I use a perfectly good "I told you so". Not that I really would, but It's to the point now I just want to see if he's actually going to be the Dem Candidit in Nov. I am sure alot of those so called super deligets are having nightmares. Plus we'll get to see how die-hard some of the die-hard Dems are.
Take care of Soldiers, Show em how its done and do it with em, Run to the Fight & and hold your ground! I die my men go home! If you're a NCO and this ain't you. GET OUT! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

It's a serious issue for you guys.  Lots of legitimate concerns for this character without the trumped up phony issues that only increase his sympathetic vote when they are exposed.  Things that look like smear campaigns usually backfire.

 Hey ... I don't like him at all .... believe me !  But I won't thump any man who does'nt deserve the mis-stated items . Next they'll be doing it to John McCain . I'm afraid it's going to be a real close fight to the last voter ... oh well another night of no sleep in November ....
Just think of all the black blowing off at the mouth about racism  if he loses .... won't be safe to ride inner city or 10 miles from a ghetto for a long time !

That's a scary thought - if he wins you lose, if he loses you may still lose depending on where you are!

Even though we don't really have a good conservative candidate, this is probably a "lifetime" election for many of us. At least with McCain, there is a "recovery" that can occur, near term. Obama and his ilk will cause enough damage to span a couple of decades, most likely. We live in sad times, when my children may not reach maturity in a "free" nation.
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

Those are my exact fears...... I fear that even if McCain wins there may well be some appointments and Bills that could doom the future of this Country, and Freedom.
