Exactly. We have to turn it back over to them as soon as possible. Like Obama said in one of his speeches the past couple of days....I want to invest the money we've been spending on this war in our own country, with our own problems. <br><br>

I recall one particular statement by one of the candidates in a presidential election campaign ( I believe it was Clinton in his first bid) that should convince the voters: "Are you better off today than you were four years ago?"<br><br>What would the answer of the voters be today, I wonder?<br><br>[color:red]" The unemployment rate took its biggest jump in more than two decades in May as employers once again cut jobs from U.S. payrolls, according to a government report Friday, showing a job market weaker than expected.<br>The unemployment rate soared to 5.5% from only 5% in April. Economists surveyed by Briefing.com had only forecast the closely watched rate would rise to 5.1% in the month.

i have to agree with Rupert Murdoch when he claims that Obama will win this one. i think Obama wins by what is politically called, "a landslide." McCain is just a horrible, horrible candidate. this one is over before it started.<br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
No doubt about McCain's terrible campaign skills. But then my local newspaper had this AP story this morning. Stuff like that is going to be hard for Obama to explain, IMHO.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

Obama sat down with the conservative Chicago Tribune editorial board a few months ago and answered every question they asked about Rezko and other topics. i don't think he needs to explain anything more and i think America is in a much different place than we were when Kerry was swiftboated. it's not going to work this time around. if the Wright stuff couldn't bring him down already then those issues are out and he's still full steam ahead.<br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Stuff like that is going to be hard for Obama to explain, IMHO.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Nah. One of the good things about the interminable Democratic primary process is that Obama has already addressed these relationships. If the Republican machine is going to try and rehash them in the general (I mean, are they really going to play the Wright card *again*??) I think they really do risk a backlash from voters who are tired of hearing about them and would rather concentrate on things like the economy and the war and whatnot ...<br><br>At least, I hope that's the case and we're not doomed to enduring the next five months full of this crap =P<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
He has addressed them, and people who've been paying attention have heard it. But this is a whole 'nother ball game, with the Reps aiming lots of high fast balls straight at the head. I hope you're right that we won't get a reprise of the swiftboating, but I'm not entirely sanguine about it.<br><br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>
