"Fundamentally Change America?" -Obama rally in MO (late night vanity)
Anderson Cooper 360

Posted on 10/30/2008 8:36:20 PM PDT by Retired Greyhound

I just caught a segment of tonight's Obama rally. He told those attending that "five days from now we will fundamentally change America".

Somebody pinch me and tell me this is all a bad dream. How can so many Americans not be listening to what this guy is really saying?

I refuse to believe that America will elect as POTUS this untested, unproven, unknown left-wing radical, who can't make it one week without another shady association being revealed. This is like the twilight zone.

Of course Obama is going to win the support of the far too many "Americans" who share his ideology, but I just can't figure out what has gotten into to the rest of the electorate? How can states like OH, PA and VA actually be so close, even in a bad GOP year?

I am fully confident that on November 4th, sober Americans will take their voting responsibility seriously and elect John McCain, a man who made great sacrifice for his country, over this guy who just showed up and wants to "change America".

But for this election to even be close is a sad commentary on the State of this Union.

"Wake up America!"

I fear a majority of this country is so blinded by hate for George W, that they would vote for anyone with a D by their name.

Keep your spirits up. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over. Just get out and vote and get other McCain supporters you know out to vote as well.

It's because the dumbed-down voters are at best uninformed or malinformed. They may also just be plain stupid. But also they are against GWB.

It is because MSM is giving Obama a pass on everything.

I also think that if GWB had pardoned those Border Patrol agents that the dislike for him would be lessened.

What the muzzie means is that he’s going to make it unsafe for parents to do and say certain things when their children are around.

Coming out of lurkdom to say I’ve spoken to 2 people who are voting for Obama and the only reason they’re voting for him is because they feel it’s time a black man is given the chance to be President, no other reason is given at all. How do you even talk to someone with that insane mindset?

Thats the truth. And the Bush Administration has not helped matters in the PR debt. I sometimes wonder if they enjoy getting their daily butt poundings from the Main Stream Media. That is why I thanked God when I found out that Sarah Palin was not going along with Tucker Eskew and Nicole Wallace.

My Rep. sister in law is voting for Obama because she “ hates Sarah”, can’t give a reason why she feels that way. My brother in law ( a Catholic priest) is voting for Obama.
Going to be a quiet holiday season for me, they both can KMA.

I know 2 people who are voting for him also, they say because he is for change...ask them what change and they don’t know, but change sounds good. It is mind blowing that they want all this “change”, be careful what you wish for!

I saw a post yesterday of a quote someone heard on NPR...”Rosa sat so Martin could stand, Martin stood so Obama could run, Obama is running so our children can fly”...all that went through my head was our children crash landing!

Your sister in law is thoroughly misguided, your brother in law is a disgrace. No offense to you of course but as a Catholic I’ve had it with pro abortion Catholics.

How could someone “hate Sarah”. I just dont get it. She seems like a very nice woman. She is a mother of 5. She is a popular governor. What is there to hate ?

My brother in law is a disgrace, my sister in law is an complete asshole. Her and her husband make way over 250,000 too. I'd like to say she is stupid, but she is highly educated and is the principal of a school.

Just because she is educated doesn’t mean she isn’t studid.

I’m around Ph.Ds on a regular basis and most of them are complete idiots.

No idea why you could “ hate” someone and not be able to come up with a single reason for feeling that way. She also had no reason for voting for Obama.
I have moonbats on both sides of the family ( they say I’m adopted )and live in Erie County, NY. Gets tough every 4 years.

The worst thing we can do is think we know the future.

The polling from the last several elections has been bad and they are over-reporting Dem and Indep %’s.

I live in Missouri and John McCain is ahead in polling here.
We have chosen the President since 1904 and are the Bellwether state. (1 exception in 1956 when Eisenhower lost in Missouri by 4,000 votes). 26-1 since 1904

I know being a teacher she should be a Dem. , but she is a registered Rep. has always voted Rep.
My youngest daughter is a rabid McCain/Palin supporter and drives the family nuts with her anti-Obama text messages. ;)

How can you have a brother in law that is a Catholic priest? Priests can’t marry.

The brother of your spouse is your brother-in-law. You’re married, he’s not.

I agree that the vanity posts are getting out of control. I am merely reporting Obama’s statement from his rally.

I'd like to say she is stupid, but she is highly educated

Education has little to do with having common sense-many times it gets in the way. I call those types the "hyper-educated".

And you have my sympathies--one of my hubby's brothers is a PhD in philosophy and "ethics" who actually gave up his citizenship and moved to Canada. His wife is getting her PhD in "womyn's studies". Every election season he sends emails about how he's concerned with the image "we" have in the eyes of the rest of the world. (I keep thinking, who's "we", buster?) He'll include a NYT editorial or two in hopes that he can "bring us to our senses".

My hubby's parents are Greenpeace donating, NPR listening, Save the Earth Fanatics who idolize their oldest son. The youngest is a history and economics teacher who will sheepishly vote for Obama even though he fully realizes he is a Marxist.

I can barely stand to look at these people who will sell their grandchildren down the river after having benefitted from all the blessings that America bestowed upon them.

All my in-laws of which they are a lot who are all Dems are all voting for McCain/Palin. Could have knocked me over with a feather. About half of them are in S. Florida and the other half in Upstate NY.

Has anyone seen the lady who won’t have to pay for gas or a mortgage once BHO is elected?

I can’t find the YouTube to post, but it’s on wizbangblog and schnittshow.com.

It’s mind boggling!!!

she is not much different than the lady in a focus group who said she didn’t know much about the terrorist group Obama was IN, but she is voting for him becuase she likes his health care plan better.
