Obama To NC Voters: 6 Days Away From Change

Back in the surprise swing state of North Carolina, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama says his campaign is "six days away from changing America."

The Illinois senator told thousands of supporters in downtown Raleigh that his campaign is less than a week away from turning the page on Republican policies, such as those held by rival candidate John McCain.

Obama's rally at Halifax Mall drew tens of thousands of supporters.

A new Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday shows Obama and McCain about even with a week before Election Day.

Both candidates are pressing hard to win the state's 15 electoral votes. Obama's visit Wednesday is his seventh visit to the state. His wife Michelle is campaigning in Rocky Mount and Fayetteville, where McCain held a rally Tuesday.

    Say, Obama 08 4 Prez: What about the scores of white people over the years that were murdered, in the very ways you described..by perpetrators that just happened to be black? Would'nt that, by your standards,automatically make those particular offenders racists ? Another point: What about the scores of liberals that SWORE they'd leave the U.S. if Bush were elected? They apparently stayed behind; why were'nt you cajoling THEM to "keep their word" ? Just wondering.

    If Obama wants to take my hard earned money in taxes. Maybe he could give some of it to his poor Brother in Africa, and his poor Aunt in Boston?

    In perusing the posts of obama supporters and obama haters, it appears that the obama supporters are quite a bit less intelligent than the obama haters. This observation is based upon the poor grammar, bad spelling, poor syntax, and improper use of negatives that obama supporters exhibit; whereas obama haters always spell words correctly, properly construct sentences and generally make their points in a more cognizant manner than do the semi-literate obama supporters. Does this tell you something?

    To all you...shaking in your boots republicans...black people aren't scared of Obama becoming president. Do you know why? Because we have had a terrorist group in "OUR SHARED AMERICA" since December 24, 1865. We already know what it's like to be hung, beheaded, raped, beat, shot, sold, murdered, tied, drug behind cars, ran over, tortured..etc. I am scared of nothing except Jesus. Everything of this Earth that the Lord made can die...therefore we are not afraid. I wish I could assure, and my white friends believe, that they will be OK. The others of you who threaten to leave the country if Obama is elected...please keep your word!

    I know that the Hussein Obama supporters are going to slam me on this, but has anyone noticed that when you see them with their "change" shirts on.....they always look angry. I was very offended recently when I was at a school function with my child and saw many of these shirts with "his" face stuck on the front. What offended me? His face is in the colors of the African flag. He wants to be the President of the United States of America. Red, White, and Blue! The only reason he is getting so many votes around here is because of his skin color, plain and simple. Recently, a friend of mine was in line for early voting. He witnessed a van pull up with SEVERELY disabled individuals inside. These people did not even seem to be aware of where they were, but they were voting. I am the parent of an autistic child and I support the rights of the disabled. This is going on all over the country. It is not right to use these people this way. We all know exactly who is getting those votes

    Now Obama's television ads have him proclaiming that he will cut taxes and reduce spending. He's trying to sound like a conservative to attract votes now that he knows he is going to lose the election. But we all know it won't work, his record clearly shows him to be the most liberal member of the Senate. Oh, and by the way, all you Obama supporters are brain-dead idiots!!

    Any Dems would like to say Muslim Prayers for Obama please go right ahead.

    If Obama is elected, the real change you are going to get for at least four long years is the "change" left over after your real estate and paycheck taxes.
