Wyoming governor endorses Obama

(CNN) – Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal is backing Barack Obama's White House bid, the Illinois senator's campaign said Wednesday.

"Senator Obama is the Democratic candidate with the openness, honesty and skill to end this vicious cycle of business as usual," Freudenthal said in a statement released by the campaign.

Obama won the Wyoming Democratic caucus on March 8 with 61 percent of the vote.

    Well Dave go ahead and tether yourself to the Obama titanic as well. I have just read about some new things Obama is involved in and it does not look pretty. We will see if Obama can keep this under raps for a while.

    Just a question, you don't have to post this, but how do you decide what you are going to post and what you don't? I have seen some folks post two or three things under the same name on the same blog, but I only get maybe one in 30 of my responses posted. Do you have a certain quota you have to meet for each candidate?

    How does Gov. Dave know that Obama has all these abilities that he talks about. Obama does not have any record of that. What ever happen making a decision based on logical thinking. Obama is not honest and has already shown business as usual.

    This endorsement shows that even the Super delegates aren't fooled by the Clintons fairy tales. Obama is our party's best chance to win the white house.

  19. Obama support in Iowa

    To Pennsylvania Voters:

    To those of you who plan to participate in Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos:

    This is a reminder that unless they have changed the 10 Commandments without my knowledge, lying is wrong. If you vote for a candidate that you do not support, that is lying. I would also like to remind you of the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you had a Candidate you believed in, would you appreciate an attempt to defeat that candidate with dishonest tactics? Isn’t that what we want to get rid of in our Government? I encourage you to support the candidate of your choice. I just hope you listen to your heart and do what is right.

    I am looking forward to the next stage of the Obama campaign, specifically focussing on the November election and making him the next President of the United States of America.

    God Bless the United States of America!
