O'Bama supporters a relying on a Cook County Democrat for "Change we can believer in".

If this isn't the definition of "dupes" I don't know what is.

Pursuit,
That observation is sound, given the history of the Chicago political machine. Can you also give us a nutshell summation of the Republican ticket's odds of implementing change?(without using the words "snowball" & "hell")

Sounds like Joe nailed it.

Sorry Tom, but I do question Obama's loyalty. Between comments like Michelle's "for the first time in my life I'm proud" to his associations with Jeremiah "God Damn America" Wright (Seriously Tom, do you really attend a Church for years and have no idea what message is being communicated?) to William "the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them" Ayers and Bernadine “Dig it! First they killed those pigs" Dohrn to smaller things like the lapel pin and the hand over the heart during the anthem flap etc, there are plenty of reasons to question Obama's loyalty to this country as a whole.

The US has had many swings of political climate. Both the left and the right have voiced their objections vehemently and violently. Ayers and the other SDS bombers share bragging rights with McVeigh and pro-life assasins. Why is it that only the Left is branded as disloyal and treasonous when they are railing against the prevailing currents?

Well, if you can name me a single right-wing bomber who went on to become a respected professor at a major University, maybe we can talk.

Also, you don't get to have it both ways. Either Obama is a left wing terrorist or he's a Chicago Machine hack but, believe me, you can't be both.

Meanwhile, you have your average Joe citizen (literally), who Obama just happened to stop and talk to. He wasn't an activist nor was he a candidate. He was a guy playing catch in his front yard. The left doesn't like the fact that he called Obama out on his tax policies, so they have done all they can to vilify him. Now to top it all off, you have an idiot in San Francisco issuing a death threat against Joe the Plumber.

If you need me, I'll be over here holding my breath, waiting for Obama to issue a denouncement.

I'm not defending Ayers. I can't understand why he's not in a federal prison. But then I can't understand why Dick Cheney isn't in prison either.
