Obama Defeats McCain

Hopefully tomorrow we will have a picture of McCain triumphantly holding up a newspaper with that as the headline…

As far as I can tell McCain had no campaign. When he debated you couldn’t understand half of his explanations. He didn’t pursue Obama on his weaknesses. He didn’t tell us clearly and concisely what his plan is and why it is better than Obama. He seemed out of touch with his 90% agreement with Bush and his statement about the fundamentals of the economy being strong. He didn’t explain how Obama misused and misquoted his policies to lead people to a false understanding of his plans. He didn’t separate himself from Bush very well. Saying maverick over and over again does not get the job done. He left the uninformed believing that a vote for him was a vote for a third Bush term.

Obama on the other hand campaigned brilliantly. While I don’t trust very much of what he has to say and I wholeheartedly disagree with him on his willingness to kill babies in the womb…he ran a marvelous campaign technically speaking. He has set the bar for a new age of running campaigns, mobilizing people, using technology, and giving people something to rally behind. He showed us that a society that is about image will vote image as well as issues. I hope the Republicans take a good look at how he ran this campaign to learn for the future how to be a winner rather than just having pseudo-conservative stances on important issues.

However this turns out, let’s pray that the man who wins seeks God out earnestly for guidance and does what is best for this country and not just for special interest groups.

    Ya know i disagree with that. He answered the questions in a way hat i could understand them, and apparently, a lot of people too. while you make a very good point on this issue, I disagree VERY much on the Obama campaigning BRILLIANTLY
    it was not that good of campaigning by his part, just more on Bruce springstein and Bill Aires, and the millions of dollars they gave him, and he spent that money, so his campaign would look BRILLIANT

    Campaigning aside, this is what is truly at stake. This radio show is about what is truly at stake in this election, and what we are TRULY voting for. This election can change the mindset of the entire country and could have an effect for years to come. Most people don’t think of it in this way. It’s very surprising. And either way you decide, you will at least be aware and understand the unspoken implications. If you like what you hear, please pass the link on to others who you may think might like it.

    My candidate won! He won by dying on a cross.

    Some trust in horses, some trust in chariots…

    Have a great day!

    Now that the American’s have spoken, I fear for the future of my first great-grandchild (now in its second month of gestation). In January09, the old constitution-destroyers on the Supreme Court can safely retire. They are now assured that their replacements will be equally if not more “activist.”
    our society. Here’s why: http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=9396 .

    Oh well, the people — NOT GOD — have spoken.

    I hope the Republicans take a good look at how left they have gone and get back to being conservative.

    Then they can answer questions well instead of trying to ride both sides of the fence. Then they can stand for something. Until then, I’ll probably vote Constitution Party.

    Now the followers of Jesus have to get on with their work . . . . I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. <> This is good and pleases God our Saviour, for he wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. (1 Tim 2)

    Now the followers of Jesus have to get on with their work . . . . I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Saviour, for he wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. (1 Tim 2) (Sorry about the previous broken note)
