And these are the people who have run this country for 30 years.

Along with Hollywood and Academia.

We are doomed.

Gee, how reassuring.

Like Susan Saradon said months ago: “I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do!”

These people are such children.

If you don’t have a premium account I wouldn’t put it on Rapidshare. They have new rules; only 10 people will be able to download the MP3.

Los Angeles Times says the same:

"First Clinton, then John McCain made the argument that Obama is someone we don't really know. Obama's supporters counter that we have his record in the U.S. and Illinois senates, two memoirs that reveal his inner thinking and a vast trove of public speaking. Ironically, those of us who were sent out to take his measure in person can't offer much help in answering who he is, or if he is ready. The barriers set in place between us and him were just too great.

I put it in a premium collectors zone so it’s unlimited.

Thank you for the heads up.

Hopefully enough people will download it so you can extend your account for free. I had a premium account there once, but never could get enough points to get the free extension.

Even before Rush/Snerdly said it, it occurred to me while listening to Brokaw/Rose that they are simply covering their media a**es in case fauxbama “wins” and gee — shockingly — starts implementing all sorts of things that horrify and devastate voters, including those people who voted for him!

They can sit back and say, well remember when we revealed that we really didn’t know too much about Obama even before the election??? Yeah, some 5 days prior to election day these two clowns had this dialogue. DISGUSTING!!!!!

How interesting. I liked Rush’s responses. WE know Obama even if the Media doesn’t. LOL.

I just heard this on Rush’s show. The thought of doing some ‘investigating’ never occurred to these ‘journalists’ I suppose.

I just know he’s going to pay my mortgage, my car payment that is now upside down, and my kids’ college tuition too.

Right after we all get free health care.

Sure we do. Just look at what he has done in the past.

1)Vote for tax increases on individuals making only $42k.
2)Vote for infanticide on abortion survivors.
3)Pack as much pork as he can in to every bill.
4)Spread the wealth around (as long as it’s tax money and not his charitable donations).
5)...

Help me out with this list FRiends.

Can you imagine how long you’d keep your job if you answered that many questions, critically germaine to your job description, with “I don’t know”? And yet, they have no introspection, no sense of their failure, no sense of shame.

This was, frankly, one of the strangest things I have ever heard. They calmly admit that they know nothing about him, it’s impossible to find out anything about him, and they don’t know what he will do - and they’re still supporting him? Unbelievable.

While I agree that he has hidden his past, there is still a fair amount known about Obama, such as his attendance at Wright’s church, his dismal Senate record, his connections with every corrupt slimeball politician in Chicago, and even the fact that he has had every document about himself sealed and hidden away - but since this isn’t what they want to hear, their way of handling it is to proclaim that they really don’t know anything at all. And yet they’re still supporting him. These are supposed to be responsible adults? And opinion makers?

Gee. It’s too bad that none of the MSM organizations have people who can actually go and dig out the facts about Obama so that Americans would know something about him.

Maybe they could call them “reporters” or something. Oh well, nothing to be done, eh Tom?

Please tell your son: that I and my family are free because of his courage to defend our nation.

We thank him greatly.

May God Bless him and keep him safe.

They don’t know who is Obama? Sure they do. Are these guys ever honest about anything?

Like Susan Saradon said months ago: “I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do!”

Is that codespeak for "line up everyone who opposes us" up against a wall for summary execution?

Actually, I think they not only know who and what he is, they are starting to realize that they have backed the wrong horse.

They aren't the only ones to romanticize socialism--then when they get a tiny taste of it (surely they know how Obama is threatening local stations who ask hard questions) they start backing away from it like a three-day-old dead fish.

My advice to Tom and Charlie: it's not too late, just vote for McCain.
