Barack Obama Makes Unannounced Stop In Greensboro

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is making an unannounced stop in Greensboro.

The Illinois senator greeted voters this morning at a farmer's
market, where he spoke about their families and ate home-made
biscuits.

Obama held a town hall event in Raleigh yesterday. He told
supporters he will "need to win" in North Carolina in November to
beat Republican John McCain in their race for the White House.

There were no hints from Obama at either stop as to whom he
might pick as a running mate.

    Anonymous, after reading what you wrote this quote was the first thing that came to my mind: "Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

    EPILOGUE Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs. Hillary got $8 million for hers. That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight years, repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember anything. IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?

    Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to the little red hen, You must not be so greedy. But I earned the bread said the little red hen. Exactly, said Barack the farmer. That is what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle. And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, I am grateful, for now I truly understand. But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread because she joined the party and got her bread free. And all the Democrats smiled. Fairness had been established. Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed perhaps no one cared...so long as there was free bread that the rich were paying for. CONTINUED

    Tommy here is a very good example of what the dems can and will do....Once upon a time, on a farm in Virginia , there was a little red hen who scratched about the barnyard until she uncovered quite a few grains of wheat. She called all of her Democrat neighbors together and said, If we plant this wheat, we shall have bread to eat. Who will help me plant it? Not I said the cow Not I said the duck. Not I said the pig. Not I said the goose. Then I will do it by myself, said the little red hen, and so she did. The wheat grew very tall and ripened into golden grain. Who will help me reap my wheat? asked the little red hen. Not I, said the duck Out of my classification said the pig. I'd lose my seniority said the cow. I'd lose my unemployment compensation said the goose. Then I will do it by myself said the little red hen, and so she did. CONTINUED

    McCain was born in Panama Canal in a MILITARY HOSPITAL while his Father was on active duty in the Navy and when McCain was born the Panama Canal Zone was considered a United States territory, and therefore it was under the jurisdiction of the United States making him a natural born citizen. As far as I'm concerned they can get rid of the both of them and start fresh with new candidates. McCain is the lesser of the two evils.

    Hey Attention- Where exactly was McCain born?

    It's truly sad that most of these so-called McCain supporters really have no idea what they are talking about. They just regurgitate what they hear from Fox "News" and Limbaugh and the other sexually repressed conservative talking heads. These people DO NOT CARE about issues. So you think Obama is going to jack up everyone's taxes? Look what the conservatives have done to the country in the last 8 years. I'd gladly pay a few more tax dollars than have a housing crisis, thousands of hardworking Americans having their jobs outsourced overseas, and have a president who blindly supports a war in which we have only bred more terrorists, just to name a few! Basically the point is this administration of REPUBLICANS have had 8 YEARS (!) to show what kind of leaders they are and have finally been exposed as the liars and crooks they really are. It's time for a change. YES WE CAN and WE WILL.

    The media has hyped this guy up to be some kind of messiah that will save and enlighten us all. He is so far to the right I'm surprised that even the most die hard liberal would support him!

    'America's Right' stating Obama will be sued in Phil. court over his NOT being born in the United States. Let's see whether or not it will attract any attention. Seems he was born in Indonesia and his mother flew back to hawaii to register his birth there after the fact.--------Obama has been a citizen of multiple nations. And even if his citizenship outside the US was renounced, Article II of the U.S. Constitution prohibits him from being President, for the same reason that naturalized citizens are prohibited.........Divided Loyalties!!

    If America will take the time to look at how both McCain and Obama have served while in office, America will see who has the experience, knowledge and leadership needed to be president. Let their work speak for itself, not how much money they have or what color their skin is: if folks will do that then they will see that McCain is the one to lead our country.
