Take 45 minutes to better know Obama


A good biography about Obama if you don't know much about his basic past, and path into politics. The end of the video is pretty interesting and foreboding, seeing that it completed after 04.

Re: Take 45 minutes to better know Obama

Lets add this of him sueing banks to make bad loans. We now know how these turned out.

Guilty! "Obama Sued Citibank to Force it to Make Bad Loans"

No I have seen two Biography shows on Obama and I admitt I'm impressed with his life and what he has accomplished. That does not mean I agree with him politically.

Re: Take 45 minutes to better know Obama

Only reason I really posted this is because a lot of critics say they don't know Obama, so this is a basic summary about his past. It also goes into details of his "community organizing", personally I didn't know specifics of his past(like how he lived overseas) so it was more of an education tool for me.

I didn't post the video to throw my support behind him, it just seems the public knows less about him than McCain.

Re: Take 45 minutes to better know Obama

I dont know, he seems very reckless to me, but his story is interesting.

Just admitt you started the thread to support Obama. If people do not know Obama or McCain at this point its because they do not care to know what going on in this election. I have seen countless news shows and/or biographes on both Mcain and Obama you would almost have to try and avoid watching these programs. Using the word reckless about McCain has become very popular among the left so your choice of words seems to in line with who your really supporting. I could be wrong but when you hear the same words that the left is using to describe McCain its hard to believe in a conincidence.

That's not exactly an objective or fair article. It's so one-sided it sounds like it was written by a college student.

Actually I thought it was pretty well researched, and there is some pretty damning commentary from some of McCains formerly biggest supporters, and alot is from his own book. Did you read the entire article?

I stopped reading after the 6th page. It took every opportunity to bash him (e.g., making a big deal out of the fact that he succumbed to torture, that he crashed planes as a pilot, etc.). It was well-researched, but so one-sided that I couldn't finish it. For example, it bashed him for his ambition. What politician who aspires to high office isn't ambitious? I think McCain isn't the right man for the job, but I don't think he's satan (which the article would have you believe).

Re: Take 45 minutes to better know Obama

In terms of succumbing to torture, I think most of the POWs did in his war camp, right?
