    Perhaps it should be deleted and then it would stop doing the rounds!

    It's called a double standard and the Republicans fail to see their own hypocrisy.

    I can see it with every issue Republicans are trying to take the high ground on. I think your post pointed out the obvious.

    That's because we don't have as much experience with that as Libtards do. Oh, and BTW, what happened to "diversity" and the favorite tag line of the "Secular Progressive" crowd, relativism? After all, according to y'all, any perspective is just as valid as any other.

    I have never heard being born in Hawaii made Lord Obama exotic. What on earth would make that exotic?

    No one but maybe Ann Coulter makes fun of his name, she calls him B. Hussein Obama. Rush calls him Berry but I don’t think its meant to be an insult. The only person making an issue out of Obama’s name is Lord Obama himself. In at least 6 different speeches that I have heard, he has told the crowd “they are going to try and scare you, tell you that I have a funny name, I don’t look like the men on the dollar bill and did I mention he is black” The ONLY person making issue out of Obama’s race, religion, and name is Lord Obama himself.

    No one has said Lord Obama is unstable because he went to Harvard. That is just stupid.

    Lacking leadership yes, people have been critical about that. I don’t see why it’s unfair to be critical of his leadership experience. Much of what is posted is inflated and exaggerated and there is much to pick at.

    I have never heard anyone say he is not a real Christian. I am the only person that I know of who doesn’t believe he is a Christian. I hear libs tell me rumors that people think he is a Muslim but no one I know of thinks that, I just hear libs saying people think that. I think he is an atheist and he will claim what ever faith that will further him in politics. Christiany just happened to be what would take him the furthest so that is the one he picked. Many people are critical that he spent 20 years in a racist church but I am the only person I know of who doesn’t believe he is a Christian.

    Yes people have been critical on his sex education thing for kids. I think it’s a fair argument to be critical on. I hope this topic comes up in the debates.

    If your wife works for a hospital you don’t represent America? That whole statement was weird. Michelle Obama has said some weird things though that did not represent America. We have to give up some of our pie, America is a down right mean nation in 2008, for the first time in my adult life I am proud to be an American. Those statements don’t set well with some. I think the wife working issue though is more about the fact that she made 50k a year then her husband used our tax dollars to give her work ear marks while she was on the pay roll, then her salary went to 150k a year and her husband lied and said she was not on payroll when he gave the earmark and IRS said she was.

    I love this email and I am going to forward it to as many as I can with my added words of course.

    See the few libs that posted on this no one noticed that all the times they talked about Obama and his wife it was all the fluff stuff they want people to think. Some of it is true and fact but most of it is as inflated as his ego and his resume.

    Every thing said about Sarah Palin and John McCain were negatives, mud dirt exc. Some of it true and fact but all of it exaggerated to its worst. No real comparison, no real honesty no real integrity. You know, typical democrat politics.

    So this is your excuse for why Republicans have a double standard ? Lack of experience?
    So calling someone who doesn't agree with you a libtard is an example of diversity? Sort of sounds like you aren't in favor of diversity to me.
    What do you mean "according to y'all" ? I don't recall mentioning I had a party affiliation.

    At last. Someone actually addressed the content of that email.

    I got a copy, posted it on another forum with a comment to the McCain supporters to go ahead and refute its content. No one did. They did exactly what FF did: called the perpetrators names and talked in generalities.


    I have to agree with this part, but change one of the words:

    Not that Repbulicans do it too refutes the statement, but it is so: Both parties engage in the same kind of (insert favorite expletive here).

    There were emails of the same ilk circulating at one time saying that Obama was a Muslim, went to a madrassa, and intimating that he was a Muslim terrorist. That, of course, is the source of the "if your name is Obama, you're a Muslim" statement.

    While all of this (insert explitive again) is going on, the budget is still out of whack, we're still in Iraq, illegals are still streaming across the border, we're still not even close to being safe from terrorists, the banks are tanking, and people are losing their jobs.:mad:

    You know what really sucks. No matter who wins, the illegal people will keep on coming illegally. That is the only thing that is for sure to stay the same. No matter who wins we lose on that issue.

    I don't make "excuses", that's another Liberal trait, I was merely acknowledging that a possible reason that they fail to see it is from a lack of experience.

    Of course it is, just like "Bushbot" and "Repugnican" and "Neo-Con" and all of the other terms of endearment that you Libtards use to describe Republicans/Conservatives are.

    You didn't have to monkey, you're obviously a Libtard because you haven't shown the slightest propensity for utilizing logic or reason. You're all about "emotions" and how people "feel". Typical Libtard tripe.

    No matter who wins, we'll still be in Iraq for the forseeable future, we'll still be adding to the deficit, and no one is going to seriously address the illegal alien problem.

    Obama has opposed the war, but is now on board with the reality that there is no easy way out. Both candidates have proposed spending/tax cuts that will add to the deficit.

    Maybe if McCain wins we will increase drilling for oil, and maybe slow the increase in price a little. Maybe he can get the locals to accept nuclear plants in their backyards, and maybe not. Maybe there might be some small progress in energy independence. There, that's as optimistic as I'm likely to get.

    Either way, we're screwed.

    Of all of the above terms, the only one that has an actual meaning is the term "neo con", or "neoconservative."

    It doesn't describe actual conservatives, of course, any more than the term "neo liberal" describes liberals.

    And, your use of the term "Libtard" is getting a little old, so I'll give the definition I've gleaned from your posts:

    Libtard: n,

    1. Anyone who disagrees with Federal Farmer's somewhat narrow view of politics.
    2. Any Democrat

    I do tend to agree with you on that and it is depressing.

    oh about the muslim part. I do remember way back in early 2007 that email that went around saying he swore on a quran when he went to the US Senate. The person who made the email either knowingly or unknowingly confused him with another person in congress who did swear on a quran. But after the Rev. Write church stuff came out, I think pretty much everyone agreed he is christian. The only one who is still talking about it is Obama himself and his "followers"
