Question: In Senator Barack Obama's own book, Audacity of Hope, he wrote (and I quote): "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." How many of you knew about this, and what do you think about it? Ok, so I didn't give the ENTIRE paragraph. Either way, what he said did not exclusively mean that if and only if they were being rounded up and put in camps. He meant if they were being singled out "unfairly". Well, does he think the extra screening at airports of people that appear Muslim is "unfair"?? Because I think it's a safety measure. Maybe he thinks that questioning Muslims more often than non-Muslims is unfair. Either way, it's not good for America that we may have a president who will stand up for those we're in war against.

That's NOT what he said. FULL QUOTE From Audacity of Hope: "Whenever I appear before immigrant audiences, I can count on some good-natured ribbing from my staff after my speech; according to them, my remarks always follow a three-part structure: "I am your friend," "[Fill in the home country] has been a cradle of civilization," and "You embody the American dream." They're right, my message is simple, for what I've come to understand is that my mere presence before these newly minted Americans serves notice that they matter, that they are voters critical to my success and full-fledged citizens deserving of respect. "Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Bekki Originally Answered: How do you feel about Obama's remark about redistributing wealth to be fair?
It's definitely socialism. Most small businesses will have extra taxes based on what he's said anyway based on what he's said. The taxes apply to every business and person who has an annual income of $250,00 or more. This doesn't factor how much it costs to maintain your business or etc. So, for example. I worked for a family owned operation that made about $500,00 their first year in business. The husband had a second job, and they were still struggling. They were making it, but it wasn't easy because they have to spend the money they make to purchase what they're selling and keep the shop up to standards. Based on Obama's plan they would still be paying more taxes at the end of the year because their yearly income was over $250,000 even though their profit was not. AND I also live in a home that runs a small business, and we make more than $250,00 a year, but there are times when we're struggling just to make it until the next month. The thing to keep in mind is that this tax is NOT based on how much money you have left after your expenses, but on how much you make throughout the entire year without including those expenses and such.

You forgot the glaring and suited answer, Barack Obama is president of the united states. Your question starts off from a defective premise, a Muslim does no longer be forcing me to do something. 2:256 and 50:40 5, no stress contained in the religion. And the prophecy isn't 30 anti-christs, yet 30 fake prophets. you would be a faux prophet devoid of being an anti-christ.

You really bought into the propaganda about all muslims being terrorists then? It's like a terrorist saying all Americans are responsible for US foreign policy... Stupid. Did you know that Churchill ordered Kriegsmarine hats and medals to be given back to their owners after they were taken by British sailors... ? And said that this was not the standard of behaviour he expected of our forces? ... it's called seizing the moral high ground.

If you are for McCain then just say that....but please do not try to distort and discredit someone or misrepresent things they say. You took what he said and deliberately misrepresented it. That is called lying by omission. You need to read the words of Elie Wiesel about how nobody stood up for those treated unfairly and because of it 6 million died in the concentration camps. During WW2, over 100,000 Japanese American citizens were rounded up and put into camps. What do you do when you become the object of suspicion and they come for you, and nobody stands up for you? We are not in a war with Muslims, we are in a war with radical terrorists that happen to be Muslim. Most of the people in Iraq or Afganistan don't like these radicals either. They often become the object of their attacks. Maybe you have not read about all the bombings and attacks with Muslims against Muslims in the Middle East. There is a huge difference. That is like saying all Baptists are bad or all people with blue eyes are bad. You cannot generalize about a group of people like you are trying to do. We should all stand up with any group that is treated unfairly and persecuted. How are children in Iraq hurting you? How are women in Afganistan causing you harm? Why should someone not stand up for them?

Maddox Originally Answered: Are there any Barack Obama dems that can give a logical explanation to Obama's associations?
Yes we can and have done it about 100 times. No we are not concerned because the associations are bogus. No we can't answer the same bogus questions about Obama ad nauseam without bringing up McCain's actual membership in the Keating 5. You cons need to explain just once "how you can support someone with this shady background-please explain." You don't provide any sources or backup for your allegations, just lots of question marks and LOLs. That is immature and proves nothing. More on Keating 5: “Not everyone was satisfied with the Senate Ethics Committee conclusions. Fred Wertheimer, president of Common Cause, which had initially demanded the investigation, thought the treatment of the senators far too lenient, and said, "The U.S. Senate remains on the auction block to the Charles Keatings of the world."[25] Joan Claybrook, president of Public Citizen, called it a "whitewash".[25] Jonathan Alter of Newsweek said it was a classic case of the government trying to investigate itself, labelling the Senate Ethics Committee "shameless" for having "let four of the infamous Keating Five off with a wrist tap."[26] Margaret Carlson of Time suspected the committee had timed its first report to coincide with the run-up to the Gulf War, minimizing its news impact.[25]” “WASHINGTON - As William K. Black watches John McCain move toward the Republican presidential nomination, he thinks of a day 21 years ago that he considers one of the most troubling of his life. Black, a senior federal savings and loan regulator at the time, attended a meeting at which he felt McCain and four other senators pressured federal regulators to back off from investigating the troubled Lincoln Savings and Loan. "I remain very upset that what they did caused such damage," said Black, now a professor at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, recalling how Lincoln's bankruptcy cost the government $3 billion. Moreover, he said he believes McCain intervened partly because his wife had invested money with Lincoln chairman Charles Keating, a campaign contributor who let the McCains use his home in the Bahamas.” “McCain and Keating had become personal friends following their initial contacts in 1981.[8] Between 1982 and 1987, McCain had received $112,000 in political contributions from Keating and his associates.[14] In addition, McCain's wife Cindy McCain and her father Jim Hensley had invested $359,100 in a Keating shopping center in April 1986, a year before McCain met with the regulators. McCain, his family, and their baby-sitter had made nine trips at Keating's expense, sometimes aboard Keating's jet. Three of the trips were made during vacations to Keating's opulent Bahamas retreat at Cat Cay. McCain did not pay Keating (in the amount of $13,433) for some of the trips until years after they were taken, when he learned that Keating was in trouble over Lincoln.[6][15] The ultimate cost of the crisis is estimated to have totaled around $160.1 billion, about $124.6 billion of which was directly paid for by the U.S. taxpayer.[1]. The concomitant slowdown in the finance industry and the real estate market may have been a contributing cause of the 1990-1991 economic recession. Between 1986 and 1991, the number of new homes constructed per year dropped from 1.8 million to 1 million, the lowest rate since World War II.[2]” “McCain also has faced fresh criticism for pushing the Federal Communications Commission to make a decision in a 1999 case affecting another major campaign donor, Paxson Communications. Responding to recent coverage of that case, his campaign issued a statement last week saying the Arizona senator has "never done favors for special interests." That declaration appeared at odds with McCain's previous acknowledgment that he made errors in the Keating Five case, which he called in his 2002 autobiography the "worst mistake of my life." The McCain campaign was asked repeatedly over a weeklong period to reconcile the two statements, but declined to respond to that or other questions related to the Keating episode. McCain has also seemed to soften his earlier statements about being influenced by political donors and lobbyists. In 2000, McCain told the Globe: "People give money to buy access. We're all tainted by this system. . . . They have access, and therefore they have influence. It corrupts the system. And I'm a victim of it, too." And about Paxson: "McCain, TV chief stories contradict Paxson says senator met him, lobbyist over sale of WQEX Saturday, February 23, 2008 By James V. Grimaldi and Jeffrey H. Birnbaum, The Washington Post WASHINGTON -- Broadcaster Lowell "Bud" Paxson yesterday contradicted statements from Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign that the senator did not meet with Mr. Paxson or his lobbyist before sending two controversial letters to the Federal Communications Commission on Mr. Paxson's behalf. Mr. Paxson said he talked with Mr. McCain in his Washington office several weeks before the Arizona Republican wrote the letters in 1999 to the FCC urging a rapid decision on Mr. Paxson's quest to acquire a Pittsburgh television station in a controversial three-way deal involving WQED Pittsburgh. Mr. Paxson also recalled that his lobbyist, Vicki Iseman, likely attended the meeting in Mr. McCain's office, and that Ms. Iseman helped arrange the meeting. "Was Vicki there? Probably," Mr. Paxson said in an interview with The Washington Post yesterday. "The woman was a professional. She was good. She could get us meetings." The recollection of the now-retired Mr. Paxson conflicted with the account provided by the McCain campaign about the two letters at the center of a controversy about the senator's ties to Ms. Iseman, a partner at the lobbying firm of Alcalde & Fay. The McCain campaign said Thursday that the senator had not met with Mr. Paxson or Ms. Iseman on the matter. "No representative of Mr. Paxson or Alcalde and Fay personally asked Senator McCain to send a letter to the FCC regarding this proceeding," the campaign said in a statement. But Mr. Paxson said yesterday, "I remember going there to meet with him." He recalled that he told Mr. McCain: "You're head of the Commerce Committee. The FCC is not doing its job. I would love for you to write a letter." The Paxson deal, coming as Mr. McCain made his first run for the presidency, has posed a persistent problem for the senator. The deal raised embarrassing questions about his dealings with lobbyists at a time when he had assumed the role of an ethics champion and opponent of the influence of lobbyists. The two letters he wrote to the FCC in 1999, while he was chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, produced a rash of criticism and a written rebuke from the then-FCC chairman, who called Mr. McCain's intervention "highly unusual." Mr. McCain had repeatedly used Mr. Paxson's corporate jet for his campaign and accepted campaign contributions from the broadcaster and his law firm."
