    Ah, dear, so good to see you. Since you refused to even listen or review the facts I presented to you last time we met, I won't bother to give you the facts this time around. Search your questions if you want to know.

    <<very informed.

    Obama/Biden

    A lot more than the typical McCain supporter.

    The one thing Senator Obama has done, that a lot of recent presidents and vice presidents haven't, is he has prepared himself with an excellent education. I am tired of seeing second-rate fools being head of the executive branch.

    Reagan was a grade B actor and a sports broadcaster. George Bush was a failed CEO, was a C student who dodged going to Vietnam, and he had a DUI and a drunk in public on his record. Cheney barely made it out college, was a draft dodger, and he had two DUIs on his record. McCain finished second to last in his class. Palin ran a fishing business, was a sportscaster, and majored in journalism at a little Midwest college.

    Obama has a B.A. from Columbia in Political Science with an emphasis on international relations. (imagine that, a politician studying political science instead of acting, business or journalism.) He then earned a doctorate law degree from Harvard, where he graduated with high honors and was president of Harvard Law Review, the most prestigious law publication in America. He taught constitutional law for 12 years at the University of Chicago, which has one of the best law schools in the U.S.

    It is high time we had someone be president who is scholastically qualified for the job. Another good thing about Obama is that, when dealing with problems, he has round tables with experts on whatever subject is at hand, and actually listens to what they all have to say.

    He educates himself and gets excellent counsel. That is the type of person we need in the White House now.

    How is anyone every qualified to be president. John McSame is qualified because he was tortured? Is he qualified because he agreed with a president who is a massive failure? You have a vision for this country, you educate yourself with the laws of this country and you have the countries best interest at heart. Obama is the only candidate who has the education, vision and interest of this country at heart. Palin is a journalist, after going to 5 different colleges. McCain's college ranking is embarrassing. This man is going to represent this country around the world and he was in the bottom 1% McCain knows he is not equipped to handle the problems of this country. He just decided to give 2008 his all, because it may be his last chance.

    The Obama supporters must be very informed. They spend their time sitting around discussing the issues over brandy, and then congratulate each other on their collective brilliance. Trouble is, the only thing they use for source information is www.obama.com. They are constantly quoting it, linking to it and supporting it. All we hear is "he brings change" and "hope for the future" and "Obama is the one."

    I want to tell you a bit about conservatives now, but first let me put the libbies back to sleep: Hope, change, hope, change, hope, change hope, change, hope, change, hope, change, hope, change, hope, change, ...

    There, that should do it.

    Conservatives are also informed, but they generally have no time to sit around sipping brandy. Conservatives learn about problems and issues through reliable sources and immediately go to work on them. No time like today to get things done! Besides, we have to work hard anyway to pay for all the liberal programs that have been started in the past, like Woodrow Wilson's IRS, or the myriad things FDR dumped on us. By the way, absolutely none of these liberal programs are working. Sigh... If you want socialism, move to Europe please, and leave our Republic alone!

    I think they need to investigate Obamas secret plans before swallow his words.

    Check out a proposal that is being called The Global Poverty Act S.2433 that is coming up for a vote in the senate. If this is signed into law then it would mandate our nation to send billions of our tax dollars to bail-out other countries.This is free money that would be giving to other countries.So i guess Obama thinks that our nations economy

    isn't in trouble. Also about him being a community organizer so was my parents the only different is they actually did the work instead

    getting people to work for him on the grassroots level. So i guess anyone who is a community organizer can run for president HuH.

    ok i read his page and this is as far as i got before the bragging made me nauseous.

    As an adult Obama admitted that during high school he used marijuana, cocaine, and alcohol, which he described at the 2008 Civil Forum on the Presidency as his greatest moral failure.[8][9]

    Following high school, Obama moved to Los Angeles, where he studied at Occidental College for two years.[10] He then transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science with a specialization in international relations.[11] Obama graduated with a B.A. from Columbia in 1983, then worked for a year at the Business International Corporation[12] and then at the New York Public Interest Research Group.[13][14]

    Not very informed at all and among the most misguided people I have ever met.

    Harvard is far to over-rated for those who think that makes Obama so much better than McCain. 2/3 of the students get A's and something tells me that Bammy's admission had something to do with that great liberal program known as Affirmative Action."

    Want to bet that a few Asian and white kids got bumped from being admitted to make room for Bam-Bam?

    Intelligence is innate. Values and character are built through life. Some are more successful than others. We will leave it at that.

    much more informed than GOP pundits, running after a senile grandpa, and a bigoted, unworldly, uneducated self-described pitbull who doesn't dare talk unprepared to any people or journalists, for fear of screwing up.

    Obama went to Columbia and then Harvard, America's best university from very humble backgrounds without affirmative action. He helped thousands of poor people in the Chicago area. he was an Illinois senator for 8 years before becoming a US senator.

    This county will go to total economic debt and ruin under McCain. He will borrow money from china to give Exxon a 4 billion dollar tax cut. This country is already bankrupt under bush, it will fall apart under mccain.

    We are informed enough to know that we need something different in the White House than the Republican messing everything up. We know enough that this economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression. We know enough that almost every foreign country hates us. I think that's enough said. How about this, Republicans always talk about how Obama was to make this a socialized government, but yet the Republicans are the ones for buying up all these major corporations? Why is this? I think the Republicans are the ones that need informed

    Completely UN informed. While pretending to be a United States Senator representing (if you can call it that) the state of Illinois, he successfully won the demoncrap nomination for president...so I guess that's a qualification.

    Sponsored Ethics reform in U.S. Senate. No trips or gifts for Senators paid for by lobbyists anymore.

    To speak for myself, v-e-r-y informed, and in general I think that Obama voters and Democrats are far more informed than Bush/McCain voters.
