    Obama: In his own words

    [INDENT]From [U]Dreams from My Father[/U]: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'

    From [U]Dreams from My Father[/U] : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'

    From [U]Dreams from My Father[/U]: 'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'

    From [U]Dreams from My Father[/U]: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'

    From [U]Dreams from My Father[/U]: 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attribute I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'

    And [B]FINALLY the Most Damming one of ALL of them[/B] comes from "[U]Audacity of Hope[/U]": [I]'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'[/I][/INDENT]

    this was debunked as lies, mis-quotes, quotes taken out of context, and quotes not even in his book.


    nice to see you forward chain letters though...

    but again, all lies

    Again I'm not voting for Obama but here's some more quotes from AOH. Can we stop with the BS America. Neither Obama nor Palin is the ****ing devil.

    1. "...if we don't change course soon, we may be the first generation in a very long time that leaves behind a weaker and more fractured America than the one we inherited."
    2. "I believe in the free market, competition, and entrepreneurship, and think no small number of government programs don't work as advertised."
    3. "I wish the country had fewer lawyers and more engineers."
    4. "I carry few illusions about our enemies, and revere the courage and competence of our military."
    5. "I reject a politics that is based solely on racial identity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or victimhood generally."
    6. "...I would partner up with even my most conservative colleagues to work on a piece of legislation, and over a poker game or a beer we might conclude that we had more in common than we publicly cared to admit."
    7, ..."What's troubling is the gap between the magnitude of our challenges and the smallness of our politics - the ease with which we are distracted by the petty and trivial, our chronic avoidance of tough decisions, our seeming inability to build a working consensus to tackle any big problem."
    8. "...We will need to remind ourselves, despite all our differences, just how much we share: common hopes, common dreams, a bond that will not break."

    You can't very well argue that Palin is being treated badly while you're propagating lies and quotes out of context.

    btw, there is nothing not to respect about a man who is being honest about the conflictions he felt as a, mixed race, child.

    I would love to see page numbers and context. If Obama really said the last quote, allMcCain would have to do is broadcast it in an add and the race is over.

    I don't like Obama but this sounds false.

    #3-Sounds kinda hypocritical since lawyers are his biggest contributers
    [QUOTE]At the same time that Obama is collecting heavily from academia, hes been bringing in money from other more corporate industries. Lawyers gave his campaign at least $3.2 million in June and July, or 65 percent of the money contributed to either Obama or McCain. [/QUOTE]

    #6-I'm sure he'd work with conservatives on various "no-brainer" stuff that often happens in Congress, but his record is that he voted with the 'rats 94.8% of the time in the 109th Congress and 96% in the current one.

    By contrast McC votes around an average of 80% with the 'pubs but interestingly the longer he's been in the Senate his voting has dropped from the middle 80s to the upper 70s, so he's not as much of a party ideologue as BO is!
