He is going by the law, now I would like to see the law changed so that every donation whether it's $2 or over $200 is reported. As they say sunshine is the best disinfectant for that is ill.

Re: obama informercial gameday thread

thats a pretty weak defense for obama going back on his word saden. his intent was to accept it until he thought he could actually win. just weak.

There's a difference between what people are accusing him of and what he said and did. Saying he's "going back on his promises/pledge/word" simply inaccurate. Do you at least agree that he left the door open to the possibility that he would decline public financing?

Thats why all those people can give made up names and adresses and still have their donation processed. When they try it with McCain its rejected. This comes from a man who claims he wants all this reform and this is probably the reason he went back on his word for public financing. If you cannot track donations what stops someone from just giving and giving sums of money under $200 under different names?The answer is nothing. On top of that a bunch of the donations are coming from those gift credit cards which make it even tougher to trace.

What's your point? That he is committing a crime? That he is cheating the system? He's playing by the standards and as I have said I don't like the standards.

Let's not even talk about McCain who has his own set of donation problems revealed inadvertently by the morons that work for him who botched a simple publicity stunt meant shame/force Obama into releasing his donor list.

Re: obama informercial gameday thread

Obama's recent comment regarding the kind of judges he wants also softened me up (What's your pet peeve?) a bit on him:

Quote:
"We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old. And that's the criteria by which I'm going to be selecting my judges."

-Obama

I thought you were off his bandwagon?

http://www.thewarpath.net/481751-post40.html (The Official Debate Thread (Round 1))

But I guess he's not the "wanker trying to get his" anymore?

http://www.thewarpath.net/455906-post1.html (FISA with Telecom Immunity Passed)

And it's interesting how you can stand McCain's policies now

http://www.thewarpath.net/453637-post15.html (Understanding The Issues: Subprime/Housing Crisis)

http://www.thewarpath.net/438209-post2.html (Understanding the Issues 2008: Energy)

I understand these are just two issues, but I think it illustrates that when it comes down to it, even the brightest minds care less about where they stand on issues than their general impression of the candidates.

Re: obama informercial gameday thread

SmootSmack, if you don't mind my asking, who will you be voting for?

I'm only curious because your responses on the political threads seem to be the most balanced, thoughtful viewpoints of any. For the life of me I still can't figure out where you're coming from, though I may have just missed an obvious post along the way.

Funny you'd pick that quote because that's precisely one of the reasons I won't vote for Obama.

I think the composition of the Supreme Court and the appointments a president gets to make is one of the most crucial factors come election time.

Someone who is going to base judge appointments on emotion and empathy scares the living daylights on me. I want experience, reason, rationale and the guts to make tough decisions, not someone who is going to vote based on some empathetic emotional whim.

There's a lot of factors that would go into making a good judge, empathy being one of many. For Obama to seemingly highlight that as the only one that's important scares me.

You kidding? I'm a Republican. Best believe I'm voting for...Obama

http://www.thewarpath.net/492503-post27.html (Colin Powell endorses Obama)

http://www.thewarpath.net/474168-post539.html (Update: McCain Selects Gov. Sarah Palin as Running Mate)

I don't know that I explicitly say Obama there but I explain my concerns with voting for McCain. I also think that even if McCain were to win now, he would likely be a one-term President.

My feeling is that 8 years ago, the Democrat party said "Just wait, in 4 years we'll get back what's rightfully ours after being robbed in the 2000 election" And then in 2004, they just embarassed themselves ("led" by John Kerry) when the opportunity to return to the White House was there for the taking. The Democratic party needs a win to restore some pride and positive reputation to the party.

Meanwhile, the Republican party I believe would actually be best served by a loss that will serve as a wake-up call that people are pissed and things need to change.

I will vote for Obama, and hope he does well. But I also hope it makes the Republican party stronger down the road.

Re: obama informercial gameday thread

saden, your defending him like a defense trial laywer.. i guess it depends on what your definition of "is" is.

I mean really, he agreed in spirit that he would, and then, once it came down to it, he jumped ship. And i mean, despite his speeches, his actual track record is to vote straight democratic 97% of the time. He's just about as far left as you can get.

I'm not a huge fan of mccain's pandering or his choice of palin (and i'm not voting for either btw), but his track record is 85% republican party line voting, which is at least a bit more moderate, and there is a chance he could go back to the guy from 2000 once in office.

not that it matters, since your bias has been insanely one sided since this whole thing began, but neither one of them is crapping roses, and there's a good chance once obama gets elected that a lot of people may end up disappointed after his term is done.

I still think he's still a wanker trying to get his but he does have the right ideas when it comes a lot of other issues I care about (Vice Presidential Debate Thread). Again, what is the problem?

LOL...what part of what I wrote offends sensibility? If McCain stands up today and says I plan to appoint Liberal justices who support liberal ideals to the Supreme Court I'll like the plan too.
