    Besides the fact that he's anti-American, educated at a Madrassa school... They know that he's inexperienced and a push over. They know that they can attack the U.S., take Iraq over again and all the other surrounding little countries and all Obama is going to do is sit down, have tea and crumpets with them and try to negotiate and play tittle winks with them. He's a terrorist's wet dream for a United States President.

    Well, that is a sweeping generalization... The truth is most enemies of this country usually come out and endorse whomever is trying to take the Presidency from the incumbent party... Castro does it every election. Now since Bush can not run for reelection, our enemies will say they support what ever the opposite party is. In this case the Dems, as the Reps have been in office for the last 8 years.... This is not a new phenomenon...

    Dear Carol, The KKK was founded by southern Democrats after they'd lost the war on slavery.

    CNN Headline News on 08November2006 ran an article reporting that both the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq and the President of Iran were commending the people of the U.S. for having voted in the Democrats. I could hardly believe it myself, so I had to stay long enough to see it repeated several more times just to make sure my eyes were not deceiving me. When last I check, Iran was and still is, sponsoring terrorist acts throughout the world AND al Qaeda is a terrorist organization.

    So my question to you Carol, is why do so many young and naive dmocrats refuse to study their own history and learn to accept facts?

    Source(s): Love the thumbs down on this response. So, the KKK was not founded by southern democrats after the war's end, CNN is not a viable news source or both? You guys are funny. It really scares me knowing that you have a right to vote.

    AT BEST, because they perceive Obama's naivite and weakness---like they viewed Jimmy Carter. In addition, they observe Obama's tenuous attachment to American culture and the American people, and his vulnerability as manifested in Obama's desire for international approval and.....money. Lots of Achilles heels Obama has.

    Because he is a weak leader and that is being generous!

    Edit: A note for Romare and other like thinkers with regard to this question:

    The Moral High ground does not work if you want to be a world leader! Carter tried that and failed miserable, Iran walked all over him. He too took nukes and first strike off the table and said we would not use them!

    Of course other nations want Obama, why not, it will make us weaker and therefore them stronger. Is that the legacy you want to leave future Americans? A weak run of the mill Socialist mud hole? That is the Direction Obama wants to take us! The big stick is still appropriate if we want to stay on top! Carrots don't work in the Middle east! Carter should have learned that but sadly he did not. Those folks only understand strength and scoff at the weak and the timid! If Obama is elected then Israel will have no choice but to attack Iran otherwise Iran will attack them as soon as Obama is sworn in! Hello World War III!

    Peace through strength! When is the last time any middle east country lived up to any agreement? Diplomacy for them is just a stall tactic to gain their own strength while weakening their opponent!

    He's their kind of people. Do you think these guys want a strong leader in the White House? No way. They would much rather have a weak, inexperienced, gullible young liberal like Obama in charge of our country.

    Because he has said repeatedly that nuclear weapons are off the table! He will not condone the use of nuclear weapons & wants us to disarm our supply. That should make Russia, China, Iran & Pakistan very happy! I hate the thought of using these weapons, but I don't want to be taken for an idiot either. Whenever the rest of the world really disarms themselves, then we just might to so also, until then, no way!

    Because there's so many similarities between the city he represents and the state of the Middle East.

    Because they know OBAMA will be a wishy washy very malleable and a pleaser type president and will bow to public and world opinion and not stand for what is right for America.

    Because he has a Middle Eastern name and they think he might treat them respectfully instead of just threatening to bomb and invade them whenever his poll numbers get low or they do something he doesn't like. Does that mean Obama will do anything for them? Hardly.

    Candidates have no control over who supports them. The KKK supports Obama, too--they think a black president will start the race war they've fantasized about for decades. Do you believe that? McCain is getting a lot of support from far-right Christian pastors who want the US to start a Holy War in the Middle East that will fulfill biblical prophecies to bring about Armageddon. Those people scare me just as much as Hamas.
