    Both you and I come from a part of this country where a mis-speak is a mis-speak (and we apologize), a joke is a joke (and we laugh), and a lie is a lie (and we know it). St. Barack comes from a part of it that knows no difference (and they love it). The only way I know of to get rid of this bad idea is to cling to your gun and "hope" there's an opportunity to bring about real "change" with it. OR, continue leaving our Southern Border open and we'll soon be part of Mexico - not a bad alternative when the other choice is Obama. Si habla Espanol?

    They all have lobbyist money. Barack is no exception, labeling himself a "bridge builder" and a "different politician" what the hell does that mean?! He is incredibly polarizing in the senate, and who knows what god-awful thing he could say running v. mccain. or worse, what if he says that to the Russian envoy in the middle of a nuclear standoff.

    People compare him to Kennedy, but Kennedy saved us from disaster, obama sure won't.

    No. He was just caught lying like any other politician.

    OMG! Obama told a lie. I think I'm going to faint.

    Wait while I blow my nose.....applause please.

    He and Hillary fooled so many left wingers. I've never been more ashamed of my country in my adult life. Can half this country be that mentally challenged?

    Hmmm what will be his answer to this one, my guess is he will choose his standard answer every time he gets caught in one of his lies, "You just misunderstood what I was saying".

    Oh Obama is there anything in your campaign that you are actually telling the truth on? Too bad so many have been hypnotized by pretty words instead of actual facts.

    This question is about Obama only and it is a damn good question. No other candidate claimed they accepted not money from lobbyist only Obama... so please just answer the question.

    Well NO CANDIDATE is permitted to take money from oil companies directly, so in that sense he is TECHNICALLY correct. But he accepted money from Resko, who is in a sense a lobbyist. So he is a liar.
