Obama refuses debate

The North Carolina debate scheduled for later this month has been canceled. Senator Hillary Clinton’s staff had agreed to the parameters, but Senator Barack Obama’s finally declined to set the date.

    I disagree Dan. He has made some silly mistakes that have cost him, but for the most part his campaign has out worked Clinton’s.

    He will win North Carolina and then she will say it doesn’t matter. Indiana is where we will see how they do in a state that either one could win.

  2. I’m hoping that Obama Hussein is the Democratic candidate. When the going really gets tough and the really right wing starts attacking him, we’re going to see that he’s not the guy he pretends to be. I believe he actually believes in what his pastor was spewing, and I think he’s sympathetic to his daddy’s Muslim people. I don’t think elderly white folks are going to trust him with the keys to the White House. No, I’m not PC, but I’m entitled to my opinion and I can assure you that if a nice middle-class black family moved next door to me I wouldn’t mind. When they invite the First and Keefe Boys over for a barbeque, I’m loading my guns. If I want to live with black thugs, I’d move to Milwaukee. You think I’m the only one that feels that way? Ha!

  3. “Sympathetic”– there’s a powerful indictment.

    Just a little ribbing, Gato–all in fun.
