    OBAMA IS FOOLING YOU.

    I am amazed how people can be fooled by obama. Obama would promise and do anything to get your vote. He believes you are stupid. If he stays in power america will never recover from his liberal policies, and mostly from incredible deficit. Prosperity will never reach middle class. He talks about middle class, but in reality he works against middle class. Don't you get it?

    • There are real screwballs in every religion. Jim Jones the Christian talked about Jesus as he slaughtered almost a thousand Christians in Guyana a few years ago. Muslim crackpots crashed planes into the world trade centers on 9/11/2003 killing almost 3000 innocents representing all religions. Now we have the nuts agitating for a world wide religious war in the hopes it would reaffirm their religious beliefs, without regard to the fact that if we allow it to happen it will consume the world. I have maintained, and continue to maintain, that the moderates have to fight against that idiocy with all we have. If There is a God in heaven, he must be shaking his head in disbelief at the brutality, and short sightedness that goes on in his name.

    • Poll Survey: Rasmussen, Pew Most Accurate in 2008

      By Martin Gould

      As the presidential election gets ever closer, new polls come out nearly every day, some suggesting that President Barack Obama is gaining an unassailable lead, others predicting challenger Mitt Romney is inching ahead.

      Both sides like to put their spin on the results, however bad they look. Each wants to take comfort from a little piece of data hidden inside.

      But how does the average voter find out which poll he or she should you believe and which polls are there merely as a distraction?

      Costas Panagopoulos of Fordham University, surveying 23 polling organizations, prepared a list showing which organizations were most accurate in their final poll before the 2008 election.

      Two — Rasmussen Reports and the Pew Research Center — got the result dead right, Panagopoulos says. Of the other 21, 17 over-estimated support for Barack Obama, while just four said John McCain would receive a larger percentage of the vote than he actually did.

      The big media organizations almost universally failed to give readers a final accurate prediction, with Newsweek coming in dead last, just behind polls for CBS/New York Times; Reuters/C-Span/Zogby and Gallup.

      Polls carried out for Fox, NBC, ABC, the Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal were also all in the bottom half of Panagopoulos’ study.

    • This is what is really fooling America !!!

      “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross,” wrote Sinclair Lewis in 1935.

      When Hitler’s hordes stole Germany, they stormed town-halls across the Fatherland carrying their sacred symbols of nationalism reinforced by a form of Christianity that lent moral credence to mob rule. In fact, Nazism could not have risen had it not been for German evangelicals and fundamentalists embedded within the various religious sects and denominations. German Christians were seduced by the allure of national pride, and in doing so, the flag, eagle, and swastika became select idols of that time – images so sacred anyone caught desecrating them were put to death.

      Twenty-first century America is encumbered by a mass cult which is stripping away the nation’s constitutional rights, civil liberties, and potential greatness. Ironically, it is also threatening the very religious freedom for which they claim to cherish dearly.

      Symbols mean more than substance today. Little flag pins arouse more adoration than real acts of valor. FOX’s America preferred to investigate (and lie about) John Kerry’s medals than George Bush’s AWOL, cocaine use, and draft-dodging. FOX’s America preferred to perpetrate the Obama birth certificate myth than investigate torture and treason. Barack without a tie in the Oval Office elicited more outrage than Blackwater’s murders. It is symbolism the right-wing is after, not reality. Surface outweighs substance.

      Not only the flag, but the cross and Bible are erected as idols. And sadly, the national idolatry cult has racial overtones – like the original fascist movement 80 years before. Nazis venerated the flag, the swastika, Mein Kampf, and the eagle. The American right-wing venerates the flag, the cross, the Bible and the eagle. The parallels can’t be more apparent.

      I'm still waiting for the 'Change' Obama promised. He only has 52 more days to prove it, or else I'm voting for Romney.

    • I am amazed how people can be fooled by romney. Romney would promise and do anything to get your vote. He believes you are stupid. If he stays in power america will never recover from his undisclosed policies, and mostly from incredible deficit. Prosperity will never reach middle class. He talks about middle class, but in reality he works against middle class. Don't you get it?

      Sentiment: Buy

    • If this man is re-elected the low income & middle class will be like the blacks have been in this first term.
      With fees & fines spending, billions in cuts. The candy checks will be going.
