Obama Staffers and Che Guevera

Published:

"In 1963, John F. Kennedy was murdered in Texas by a fervent
admirer of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. In 2008, a large Cuban flag
emblazoned with the image of Che Guevara, Castro's brutal henchman, is
prominently displayed in a Barack Obama campaign volunteer
office (http://PatriotPost.US/news/obamas_campaign_office.asp) in
Houston. Obama has been widely compared to JFK, most notably by the late
president's brother and daughter. President Kennedy, a stalwart anticommunist, despised Castro and his gang of totalitarian thugs. But when word broke last week that Obama's supporters in Houston work under a banner glorifying Che, the campaign's reaction was to brush it off as an issue involving volunteers,not the official campaign. After two days of controversy, the campaign issued a statement calling the flag 'inappropriate' and saying its display 'does notreflect Senator Obama's views.' Would JFK have reacted so mildly?...

That this sadistic thug's face also adorns the office of a U.S. presidential
candidate's supporters is appalling and disgraceful. That the candidate
couldn't bring himself to say so is even worse." ---Jeff

Coin Toss, this was not an official campaign office for Obama, was it?
This campaign is going to get very dirty, because the mudslinging hasn't even started. At least if Clinton gets in, they've already dug pretty deep into her personal & political life.

So far it's an isolated incident and the clowns in Houston are already saying, "Oh we thought he was just that cool dude on tee shirts", but for such a poster and flag to be in a presidential candidate's campaign office is the pits.

Well, maybe time*treat was right when he mentioned the intellectual sloth of the average voter. LOL

Looks like the "Thug's" gonna win., regardless of how many that I talk to feel. I prayed about it. That is the best thing I know to do for our country right now. If Obama is the best man for the job, then so be it. But he isn't my pick. I was originally for Hillary Clinton, because she has been there before and didn't do that much harm that I could tell. McCain just doesn't impress me one way or the other, but he has got to be better than Obama. (Because Obama stands for everything I am against.)

The media has run this campaign more than ever. If there's any doubt, just read this from January 2007, over a year ago. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/01/14/ftn/main2359098.shtml

*** Sen. John McCain supports President George Bush's planned troop surge in Iraq, while his fellow Senator, and likely opponent in the 2008 race for the White House, Barack Obama would rather see a "surge in diplomacy." ***

Obama is very impressive when he speaks and I see the effect he has on people...but is that enough? I hope his optimism is real and his inspiring speeches are filled with empty promises. He certainly knows how to fire up a crowd..I'll grant him that.
