SENATOR "SWEETIE" BARACK OBAMA REALIZED HE NEEDED SOMETHING MORE THAN "FAILED COMMUNITY ORGANIZER" TO OFFER SINCE AMERICA ISN'T IMPRESSED WITH HIS LACK OF EXPERIENCE. SO HE'S GOING TO BE EMPHASIZING HIS 'EDUCATION BACKGROUND.'
THAT WOULD BE THE WORK HE AND BILL AYERS DID.
THAT WOULD BE THE BILL AYERS HE PLANS NOT TO KNOW.
INTERESTINGLY, IN HIS FAILED DEBATE PERFORMANCE AGAINST HILLARY, HE TRIED TO ARGUE THAT HE BARELY KNEW BILL AYERS AND THAT THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND ACTIONS DIDN'T MATTER BECAUSE HE WAS ONLY 8 YEARS OLD (AS IF IT WAS A ONE YEAR OPERATION); HOWEVER, NO ONE NOTICED HE HAD HIS DISTRACTION READY, LYING THAT BILL CLINTON PARDONED TWO MEMBERS OF THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND.
NOW HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE HE KNEW THAT? HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE HE HAD THAT READY UNLESS HE KNEW BILL AYERS WAS A HUGE ISSUE DESPITE ALL OF HIS LIES TO THE CONTRARY.
Turning to the US presidential race. Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader can announce that the plan for the Nader-Gonzalez ticket to be on the ballot in 45 states by September 20th happened nine days early. Ralph and his running mate Matt Gonzalez (and their team of supporters) have already advanced the independent run further than in 2004 and have had to jump through obstacles of ballot access that no one should have to.
In addition to that news, Team Nader picked an endorsement, from Jaclyn E.'s "Ralph Nader for President" (Teen Ink):
Choosing between the Republican and Democratic candidate would mean choosing the lesser of two evils. Instead, I prefer to align myself with a candidate who shares my views on stabilizing the economy, preventing war, and downsizing the government. This candidate is Ralph Nader.
Nader is the only presidential candidate who has experience running his own business. He has applicable knowledge of the economy and strives to distribute wealth equally. He was quoted on "Meet The Press" as saying: "There is a two-tier economy where the top 10 percent is doing quite well, the top one percent spectacularly. But the top one percent of the richest people in this country have financial wealth equal to the combined 95 percent of the American people. That's a very unhealthy inequality." In order to fix this, Nader proposes to repeal the Bush administration tax cuts and adjust the federal income tax. This shows that he is driven to help the average American survive the current economic slump.Nader also wants to help America move past Congress's war-happy regime. He proposes a "draft from the top," meaning when an administration approves a war, the service-aged children of all members of that Congress and Cabinet will be the first to serve. This would ensure that elected officials think carefully before declaring war. Nader also supports pulling out of Iraq within six months and trying to negotiate with Iran. He wants to take our men and women in uniform out of Iraq and bring them home where they belong.
