Obama...

Have you seen anything where he actually states a view he has? Everything I have ever seen of the guy involves him rambling on, but never making a point.

I think the popular view of him is that he is a smart guy... but I'm not so convinced he isn't just a great speaker.

His whole package is basically that he's a slick-talking new face that's so new that he can claim not to have been involved in past sins (i.e. can't hang anything on him because he hasn't done anything).

He's a sad example of what our screwed-up, media-controlled, celebrity-worshipping process delivers - all packaging and no content.

x2. I'd like to think he's a nice guy, but all I can find is hype.

Isn't that all of them? It seems that every debate I've sat through is them tip-toeing around the issues and unless they are making a jab at another based on how they've voted.

It's amazing to me the amount of money they've spent over the past year to essentially say nothing.

Well, besides Hillary plans to have us all riding flatulence-powered smile cycles if she's elected.

I appreciate the thought, but it wouldn't be worth it to me. I held office once (local school board), and it was a thoroughly angering and disappointing experience. However, that does make nearly as qualified as Obama.

Besides, I'm not "electable" (overweight, bald, middle-aged white guy with strong opinions, integrity, and principles).

That's a huge problem, all the people who would make good representatives don't wanna deal with other people's bull.
