Response to Thinking about voting for Obama

Ellimem posted this BS rhetoric. I'd like to point out the flaws in his arguements.
1.) Selma Got Me Born - LIAR, your parents felt safe enough to have you in
1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965.
He was using "Selma" an example of the enitire civil rights movement. 

2.) Father Was A Goat Herder - LIAR, he was a privileged, well educated
youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.
Where his father ended up has nothing to do with where he started.

3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - L IAR, he was part of one of the
most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.
Freedom fighter and corrupt government official depends on what side you're standing on

4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - LIAR, your cousin Raila
Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate
election in 2007, in Kenya. It is the first widespread violence in
Same as No. 3

5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - LIAR, she does her daily
Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews. According to the
New York Times: "I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith," Ms. Obama,
85, said in a recent interview in Kenya.' Not to mention, Christianity
wouldn't allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man.
Barack like everyone else has 2 grandmothers. The one that raised him was christian

6.) My Name is African Swahili - LIAR, your name is Arabic and 'Baraka'
(from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein is also
Arabic and so is Obama.
"Obama" IS an African Swahili name. 

7.) I Never Practiced Islam - LIAR, you practiced it daily at school,
where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31
years,until your wife made you change, so you could run for office.
This is an outright fabrication. 

8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian - LIAR, you were registered as
Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check
your own book).
9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian - LIAR, not one teacher says you could
speak the language.
He can speak it now.

10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience - LIAR,
you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even spea k the
language. What did you learn, how to study the Koran and watch cartoons.
Living in Indonesia as a child opened him up to other worlds as a young child. You could say John McCains only foreign experience is how to get tortured by asians

11.) I Am Stronger On Foreign Affairs - LIAR, except for Africa (surprise)
and the Middle East (bigger surprise), you have never been anywhere else
on the planet and thus have NO experience with our closest allies. You
seek to disarm America while our avowed enemy, Iran, will not subject
itself to a nuclear ban. Top Hamas politica l adviser Ahmed Yousef said
the Hamas terrorist group 'supports Obama's foreign policy vision'.
Those are the two biggest problem areas in the world. 

12.) I Blame My Early Drug Use On Ethnic Confusion - LIAR, you were quite
content in high school to be Barry Obama, no mention of Kenya and no
mention of struggle to identify - your classmates said you were just fine.
Sopunds like ethnic confusion to me

13.) An Ebony Article Moved Me To Run For Office - LIAR, Ebony has yet to
find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did,

14.) A Life Magazine Article Changed My Outlook On Life - LIAR, Life has
yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never
did, exist.

15.) I Won't Run On A National Ticket In '08 - LIAR, here you are, despite
saying, live on TV, that you would not have enough experience by then, and
you are all about having experience first.
every politician says this

16.) Present Votes Are Common In Illinois - LIAR, they are common for YOU,
but not many others have 130 NO VOTES.
Present votes are common among all politicians. It means that you support the idea behind a bill but not the specific wording. It leaves open the posibility for debate

17.) Oops, I Misvoted - LIAR, only when caught by church groups and Democrats, did you beg to change your misvote.
Not sure what this is refering to

18.) I Was A Professor Of Law - LIAR, you were a senior lecturer ON LEAVE.
He had a university position teaching law, call it what you want.

19.) I Was A Constitutional Lawyer - LIAR, you were a senior lecturer ON
Obama study constitutional law and passed the bar. He was a constitutional lawyer

20.) Without Me, There Would Be No Ethics Bill - LIAR, you didn't write
it,introduce it, change it, or create it.
He was a strong advocate for ethics reform

21.) The Ethics Bill Was Hard To Pass - LIAR, it took just 14 days from
start to finish
I guess you played a part in the negotiations.
22.) I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill - LIAR, your bill was rejected by your
own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation - mainly because of
your Nuclear Donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.
I doubt you'll find a single democrat who will say that is the reason for rejection

23.) I Have Released My State Records - LIAR, as of March, 2008, state
bills you sponsored or voted for have yet to be released, exposing all the
special interests pork hidden within.
State sponsored bills are public to anyone that wants them from the moment they are introduced. He is not resonsible for gathering those state records 

24.) I Took On The Asbestos Altgeld Gardens Mess - LIAR, you were part of
a large group of people who remedied Altgeld Gardens. You failed to
mention anyone else but yourself, in your books.
Sounds like he was a part of it

25.) My Economics Bill Will Help America - LIAR, your 111 economic
policies were just combined into a proposal which lost 99-0, and even YOU
voted against your own bill.
He voted against it after it was changed in committee. Watch schoolhouse rock

26.) I Have Been A Bold Leader In Illinois - LIAR, even your own
supporters claim to have not seen BOLD action on your part.
Which supporters are these? Obama was a strong community organizer and popular state senator

27.) I Passed 26 Of My Own Bills In One Year - LIAR, they were not YOUR
bills, but rather handed to you, after their creation by a fellow Senator,
to assist you in a future bid for higher office.
Most bills are a collaboration of senators. usually to show bipartisan support

28.) No One Contacted Canada About NAFTA - LIAR, the Candian Government
issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with
It is common in such a large organization to not be aware of rogue supporters who make promises the canidate doesn't agree with. It's happened to every presidential candidate this election
29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism - LIAR, you missed the Iran Resolution vote
on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction of
Israel. You state you will open friendly communication with the Leader
of Iran who is attempting to develop nuclear weapons to destroy us, but
refuse to speak to FOX news. You are against provisions of the Patriot
act which would all wiretapping of the phones of suspected terrorists in
the USA.
FOX news is not a legitimite news source. If you think it is than you're foolish. If you want to watch them for commentary go ahead if you watch it for news your just ignorant.

30.) I Am Not Acting As President Yet - LIAR, after the NAFTA Memo, a dead
terrorist in the FARC, in Colombia, was found with a letter stating how
you and he were working together on getting FARC recognized officially.
Sounds like a bunk conspiricy theory.

31.) I Didn't Run Ads In Florida - LIAR, you allowed national ads to run
8-12 times per day for two weeks - and you still lost.
I think the official statement is he didn't campaign in florida.

32.) I Won Michigan - LIAR, no you didn't.
I'm from Michigan. he's never made such claim his name wasn't even on the ballot. However, 44% of voters voted uncommited rather than vote for hillary.

33.) I won Nevada - LIAR, no you did not.
He won the delegate count

34.) I Want All Votes To Count - LIAR, you said let the delegates decide.
Delegates represent the voters

35.) I Want Americans To Decide - LIAR, you prefer caucuses that limit the
vote, confuse the voters, force a public vote, and only operate during
small windows of time.
Obama competed in primarys and caucuses and performed well in both although better in caucuses. He never stated any preference for caucuses. 
clintons big mistake was taking caucuses for granted. Obama is just a smart organizer

36.) I passed 900 Bills in the State Senate - LIAR, you passed 26, most of
which you didn't write yourself.
I think you have State and National Senates confused

37.) My Campaign Was Extorted By A Friend - LIAR, that friend is
threatening to sue if you do not stop saying this. Obama has stopped
saying this.
That friend is an extortionist
38.) I Believe In Fairness, Not Tactics - LIAR, you used tactics to
eliminate Alice Palmer from running against you.
Define Tactics. The tactics of fairness maybe.

39.) I Don't Take PAC Money - LIAR, you take loads of it.
Name one PAC he takes money from. You Can't. 

40.) I don't Have Lobbysists - LIAR, you have over 47 lobbyists, and
No lobbyist works for Obama's campaign and he has stated they will have no place in his cabnet. This is not the case for McCain

41.) My Campaign Had Nothing To Do With The 1984 Ad - LIAR, your own
campaign worker made the ad on his Apple in one afternoon.
See 28

42.) My Campaign Never Took Over MySpace - LIAR, Tom, who started MySpace
issued a warning about this advertising to MySpace clients.
Not directly linked to his campaign just Obama supporters

43.) I Inspire People With My Words - LIAR, you inspire people with other
people's words.
And his own. The charges of plagerism were taken from one of Obama's good friends who claims he has taken words from Obama himself
People who share the same ideals often share ideas.

44.) I Have Passed Bills In The U.S. Senate - LIAR, you have passed A BILL
in the U.S. Senate - for Africa, which shows YOUR priorities.
Don't forget ethics reform

45.) I Have Always Been Against Iraq - LIAR, you weren't in office to vote
against it AND you have voted to fund it every single time, unlike
Kucinich, who seems to be out gutting you Obama. You also seem to be
stepping back from your departure date - AGAIN.
He spoke out againt the war during the 04 convention
46.) I Have Always Supported Universal Health Care - LIAR, your plan
leaves us all to pay the 15,000,000 who don't have to buy it.
That's Universal HealthCare. You may not like it but it doesn't make it a lie.

47.) I Only Found Out About My Investment Conflicts Via Mail - LIAR, both
companies you site as having sent you letters about this conflict have no
record of any such letter ever being created or sent.
I'm sure the companies wouldn't send this notice. Comanies don't care about conflict they care about money t I'm sure someone else did. 

48.) I Am As Patriotic As Anyone - LIAR, you won't wear a flag pin and you
don't put your hand over your heart during the Anthem. There is a Cuban
Flag with Che Guevara Displayed at Barack Obama Campaign Office which you
allow to be displayed. You voted against making english the official
language of the United States. You voted to give illegal aliens social
security benefits, which would bankrupt the social security system for
Americans legally paying into it.

R, your
wife's words follow lock-step in the vain of Rev. Wright and Louis
Farrahkan, in relation to their contempt and hatred of America.
He has worn a flag pin he just doesn't buy into the BS that you have to wear one to be patriotic. Do yopu wear a flagpin everyday. If not you must hate america.
I could go on but theres no more room
