An Open Note To All Undecided Voters ...

As I've said in other posts, if you're unsure who to vote for, and don't want to learn the platforms of each candidate, just look at their comportment and let that be your guide as to who you want in the White House.

Put another way, if you were hiring someone to work on your house:

Would you want to hire someone who talked to you about your house's problem and then provided you with a thorough estimate for the work?


Would you want to hire someone who spent all his time tell you that you'd better hire him because the other guy would do a crappy job and make your house fall down?

Me? I'd go with the first guy.

I'd rather go with the guy who has had experience and not just talked about it.

Me too. Actions speak louder than just words. In the real world you won't get hired to an executive position solely based on promises. On a resume they look for proven executive experience and the like. Good judgment comes from experience.

Jeff, I gotta ask: If actions speak louder than words and good judgment comes from experience, what does McCain's campaign say about him? He's run the most despicable campaign in history. Even Karl Rove has said some of his tactics have gone too far. Where's the good judgment? Look who he's chosen to surround him with in this campaign.

George Bush's "experience" has surely done wonders for this country, hasn't it?

"Barack Obama does not have the experience to be President of the United States. He wasn't experienced enough to authorize the invasion of Iraq ... (And) it's clear Barack Obama doesn't have the experience to let the special interests run the government. You know, that's the kind of (in)experience I could get used to." - Robert De Niro.

And yeah, De Niro is not an political expert and he is one of those Hollywood types. But you know what else De Niro is? An American citizen, which gives him the right to say whatever we wants about the election. Same with me and Beth and Jeff and, yes, even cowards who don't use their real name, or any name, for that matter. But when you think about it, experience isn't always what it's cracked up to be, is it?

This campaign season has been the longest and most contested of any in our nations history. For anyone to say they do not "know" Barack Obama or do not feel he is up to the IMMENSE challenges we face as a country (and citizens of the world) is either lazy, close minded, or so rigid in their beliefs I would not trust them to tell the difference between black and white.

Barack has run the best political campaign from BOTTOM to top this country has ever seen. The Republicans are either jumping ship or cutting each other up. They know the end of the politics as usual is coming to an end.

Enough of the divisiveness and hate ... We are in TROUBLE people!!! Do you reallllllllllly think a 72 year old former POW with a 4x history of melanoma, a hair trigger temper, does not know how the "internets" and "the google" works, is still fighting the Vietnam War via Iraq (and possibly Russia and North Korea), who picked a VP he sat with for just over an hour ... is the leader to bring us into the 21st century?

The differences in their record AND rhetoric are stark ...

I do NOT trust Republicans with: Education, Health Care, Taxes on middle class, Women's issues, the war, the economy, disabled people, our veterans ... they have proved time and time again they pay only lip service to the concerns 91% of Americans have ... who ARE you 9% of Americans that believe the United States is on the "right track" ?????

The McCain crowd first lost the "experience" card with their cynical, pandering selection of Palin as their veep candidate. They lost it again with the pseudo-issue of executive versus legislative experience. Sure, they're two different branches of government, we get that. But we've been here before, and we've had both good and bad presidents come from each branch. Bush had five years of "executive" experience in Texas, and it didn't stop him from running one of the single most inept administrations in U.S. history.

Meanwhile, the woefully inadequate Palin shares with Bush a penchant for fear-mongering, a profound incuriosity and a stubborn disdain for all things intellectual. We've had nearly eight years of that. Enough.

Here is a 67 page academic research paper on:

Here is an exerpt:

“a light will shine down from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, ‘I have to vote for Barack’”

An example of Obama using both of these hypnotic hand gestures, hypnotic programming followed by hypnotic anchor back to back, in a way that can be nothing other than hypnosis: You can See the video of this speech excerpt:

Don't worry, Anon - the mothership will be back soon to take you back to your home planet, where you will again be among your own, the brainless simps of the galaxy.

I heard something the other day and am wondering if it's true. Has Obama released his medical records? I am leaning his way but am wondering if he is hiding something. I would venture to guess he is healthy but then why not hand over the records. Am I wrong here? Please help.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am David L. Scheiner, a board certified general internist licensed to practice in the State of Illinois. I am on staff at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Rush University Medical Center. I have been Senator Barack Obama's primary care physician since March 23, 1987. The following is a summary of his medical records for the past 21 years.

During that period of time, Senator Obama has been in excellent health. He has been seen regularly for medical checkups and various minor problems such as upper respiratory infections, skin rashes and minor injuries.

His family history is pertinent for his mother's death from ovarian cancer and grandfather who died of prostate cancer. His own history included intermittent cigarette smoking. He has quit this practice on several occasions and is currently using Nicorette gum with success.

Senator Obama's last medical checkup was on January 15, 2007; he had no complaints. He exercised regularly often jogging three miles. His diet was balanced with good intake of roughage and fluids. A complete review of systems was unremarkable. On physical examination, his blood pressure was 90/60 and pulse 60/minute. His build was lean and muscular with no excess body fat. His physical examination was completely normal.

Laboratory studies included triglycerides of 44(normal under 150), cholesterol 173 (normal under 200), HDL 68 (normal over 40), and LDL 96 (normal under 130). Chem 24, urinalysis and CBC were normal, PSA was 0.6, very good. An EKG was normal.

In short, his examination showed him to be in excellent health. Senator Barack Obama is in overall good physical and mental health needed to maintain the resiliency required in the Office of President.

That's it? Why all the fuss about his medical records? I am so frustrated with this election and I will be so happy to see it come to an end.

Well, I certainly can't say why Obama's camp hasn't released his full records, but it's worth noting that Sarah Palin hasn't released any medical records or any statement from a physician. And we're five days away from the election. I find that very curious.

The difference is that Palin is running for VP. It's like comparing Biden not giving his records to McCain withholding his. People (media) would be making a much bigger deal if this was the case. It doesn't really make a difference though. Obama has got it locked up. I can't see a way where McCain will be able to pull this one out. Thankfully.
