independentprogressive
cherrychocolate

Barack Obama is completely inexperienced and lacks the REAL political backbone needed to run this country. Barack Obama On the Issues: -Does NOT support real Universal Healthcare. -Says he stood up against the war in Iraq before it was popular (even though that was already the mainstream opinion of the Democratic Party at the time). -Voted for the USAPATRIOT Act. -Is pro-Israel. -Voted for free trade with Guam. -Voted FOR a border fence between US and Mexico. Barack Obama has shown t...

Barack Obama is the best choice for '08 president

Barack is the best choice for president in the upcoming year. This can be easily illustrated by looking at his economic, foreign, and social policies. First off economic. In 2007 Obama stated that he supported "merit pay" for our teachers. For those of you unfamiliar with Merit Pay it is the concept of paying people at how effective they are at there job. This would encourage teachers to help their students that are having problems, dedicate themselves to the school, and ultimatly get rid of...

Hilary Clinton has more experience than Barack. Obama.

Hilary Clinton is readily afforded credit for being more experienced than Barack Obama, especially by the media. What leads them to this conclusion, her additional years of service in the Senate, in which she failed to lead or distinguish herself on anything of note? If time in the Senate is the metric of relevance then surely we should go with one of the lifers, Biden or Dodd. Is Hilary more experienced because she was first lady; the logic of which implies that Laura Bush has more recen...

Barack Obama is too inexperienced to be president

KingYosef

Hello potential debaters, I believe that Barack Obama is too inexperienced to be president. Here are my reasons: 1) He has only been a senator for just under 3 YEARS. That isn't enough time to become qualified. His fellow senators running have had a minimum of 6 years in office. The candidate that was in office for 6 years was John Edwards, who didn't run for relection since he was running for vice president. Also, Hilary has been in office for 7 years and most of the others , 11+ years....

I have had sevral discussions with Obama supporters, which my family is one! If you know anything about the anitchrist then you would know that Obama fits most if not all the fittings for this person! He is a man from the middle east, He was raised my Musslim radicals, he has been the only person not to "support" the United States by placing his hand over his heart durring the star spangle banner, he does not wear any patroitic atire on his person! Now how can a person running for the United...

Barack Obama will win the Iowa caucuses later today on the Democratic side.

Although I support Hillary, I actually think Obama will win the caucuses in Iowa, which start roughly 14 hours from now. I waited until now to make this prediction because it has been a very close race, but I think the latest indications are enough to predict a triumph for Obama. My best piece of evidence is the latest Des Moines Register poll, which has Obama leading 32 to 25 (Clinton) and 24 (Edwards). The Register poll strikes an air of respectability and historical accuracy, having corre...

Barack Obama would NOT be the first black president.

"Barack Obama would be the great black hope in the next presidential race -- if he were actually black." ~Debra J. Dickerson~ Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to Barack Obama, Sr. (born in Nyanza Province, Kenya)and Ann Dunham, a white American (born in Wichita, Kansas). Now, let me make it clear that I am not opposed to having an African-American president, but I will give credit when credit is due. Being of mixed ethnicity, white mother and black father, Barack Obama is...

Obama is the progressive agent of change, no John Edwards.

KingYosef

John Edwards is the change candidate of 2008. His positions on trade, on the American economy, and on the corruption and disconnect between Washington and the American people are right on the money. He is one of the few candidates who actually addresses the issue of poverty in the United States, and he does not address it like an abstract issue. To John Edwards, poverty is very real, and while the media and the GOP likes to poke at his house, his own personal success has not made him forget the...
