Maybe he's having a pissed of patriotic moment, although I would think JJ is being stereotypical as chaosfish pointed out. Personally, Im having a laugh, but yeah, go Obama!

You're all wrong. He's using sarcasm to parody how his views are percieved by hippy, niger loving, dumbass liberals like me.

Bottom line is: Obama will most likely win from the looks of things. Most people are tired of Bush's methodology and republican rule in the white house. People want something new to blame all their problems on. It's just a cycle of elephants and donkeys trading places.

Can someone explain to me how Obama is going to be better than Bush?
After all, I do find it hard to believe Bush actually likes war and death. That's just stupid comedy.

Also, someone explain why people like to put "" around the word Terrorist. Terrorists are terrorists, what's wrong with calling them terrorists?

Because some people are cool like that. Romanticizing murder ftw!

PS I like bloodshed as long as they are my enemy.

Whatever happened to free, equal, direct and secret elections, the four principles of voting?
1) This is a public poll.
2) The "direct" didn't reach America yet.
3) The electorate consists of US citizens and voting computers.

The Iraq war is a dilemma, which definitely isn't solved by either "yes" or "no". I don't think that Obama will bring peace to Iraq by simply leaving them alone with their business.

Remove the second line, and you're the same as most voters.

(I mean for anyone, not related to Obama)

Just saying, most people (wherever) don't really vote for who they're voting for the right reasons.

1) Well, all Obama has to do is not be an uneducated hillbilly from Texas, and he'll already have a head start over Bush!
Also, you're right, bush doesn't like war, he went to war because he cares about the wellbeing of the iraqi people, he had no motives of self-interest in going to that war

2)One man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter?

I don't see why someone should say "terrorist" instead of terrorist, in the end it's a person that causes terror to some group, not much to argue there.

Well guys, anyone who kills in any different manner then self-defense, or kills innocent people, has no moral right to call himself a freedom fighter. Which means the tool he uses to fight is terror, and thus he is a terrorist. It doesn't matter if his cause is just or not, the fact remains that innocent deaths on his hands make him just a big of a murder as the people he fights.

My problem with the Bush administration (face it, mr. "nulcear" is too dumb to doctor it all himself...) is their lies about their motives. If they said "hey, there's some bad motherfuckers in there, holding hands on oil and keeping it away from a normal market, and we need stability here so we're going in to bust their assess" I'd be more ok with it, then when they said they're going to give freedom to those ppl. If so, then they should go liberate Chechnya next, and a whole lot of other opressed countries/peoples.

I hope we have a President who can say "nuclear," and then will use it as part of a speech where he just declared war and we dropped the bomb on someone. Preferably Iraq. I doubt that Obama would want to lob a supermicrowave on top of his international homeboys, so I've voting for McCain. I bet he can say nuclear.

Oh, joy!

Granted, I'm not really an expert in all this politics thing. But I find this VERY hard to believe Bush is actually stupid. Separate comedy from reality. And did they go to Iraq because of the oil? REALLY? That just seems unlikely, maybe even stupid to think that.

What Len and Jase said. Someone who spreads fear by butchering random people in order to get what he wants is a terrorist. Not a "terrorist".
