Skip to comments.Obama Spinning Away For Those Bitter Rural Folks

You have GOT to be kidding me.
Thats Obama trying to make amends with those bitter, gun clinging, bible thumping, xenophobe rural voters in Watertown, South Dakota.
Apparently Obama chose to hold his rally in a "livestock arena" where, according to the Times, there were "wood chips and even cow chips scattered on the floor." I assume the Obama campaign chose the venue with the idea that these rustic visuals would enhance his populist credentials, but it would have been easy to find a more comfortable venue--Watertown Stadium, say, or the Watertown Civic Arena.
As for the speech itself Obama was spinning away:
Mr. Obama drew a distinction, saying his administration would start negotiations with Iran without preconditions and being directly involved himself. For that to occur, he added, Iran would have to meet benchmarks or conditions.
That reiterates remarks he has made numerous times in the past year, though not in a YouTube debate last July that the McCain campaign has repeatedly cited.
Agreeing to begin talks without preconditions does not mean we would not have preparations, Mr. Obama said.
Those preparations would involve starting with low-level diplomatic contacts like National Security Council or State Department emissaries, he said.
Oh, so you would still meet with them without preconditions BUT now you would "prepare" for the meeting? Prepare? What would those lower level emissaries do exactly to prepare the meeting? Extract preconditions? That can't be because your website says you will meet with them without those preconditions:

But it’s CCCCHHHAAAANNNGGEEE!
I do love how a conservative going to church is seen as their extremism, whereas a liberal going to church is seen as a qualification.

I presume the bull chips were from Obama’s speech.
"What's that, Mr. Burns?"
"I'll hold my next campaign rally right in the middle of a watermelon patch!"
"Brilliant, sir. Absolutely brilliant."
The fact that everything Obeyme says is cryptic and ill-defines should give EVERYONE cause for great alarm. He is a lying, racist, Marxist weasel provocateur, who will destroy the Republic if he gets the opportunity.
View this short video and tell me you want Obama for your president
When did he mention limited government?
I am going to take note from now on, on how often he wears that flag pin.
So far he has only worn it to red states. Last week he didn’t wear it in D.C yet had it on later that day in SD or WV.
He must think we are soooooo stupid.
Mr. Obama drew a distinction, saying his administration would start negotiations with Iran without preconditions
The next sentence is this:
...For that to occur, he added, Iran would have to meet benchmarks or conditions.
How does that work???
I have a strange feeling that John McCain will be president. It only keeps getting stronger and stronger.
Go home, city boy. Even Hillary with her shot-and-a-beer moment had more credibility than this, that is to say, none.
Ya know it would probably be fun drinking with a lit Hillary if ya could say or ask any questions or statement you may care to. BUT she would have had to start drinking long before I got there as too much would make me sick, of her that is.
