LAKE FOREST, California (CNN) - Here is what's interesting about this forum: within minutes, Warren goes from asking about taxes to asking what to do with the 148-million orphans in the world to asking whether evil exists. It keeps up the energy.
My sense is this will be one of those times when we will learn a lot about how a candidate thinks - without any breaking news.
Whoa - stop the presses - a rarity: Obama praises Bush for increased U.S. efforts to battle AIDS around the world.
this is not unusual for Obama he credits his opponents when credit is due
Obama spoke from a personal faith base level and from his heart. John McWar did nothing but campaign and spoke of war and every answer.
This was a better question for McCain. He and Cindy did adopt an orphan.
McCain certainly has the depth and life experience Obama lacks!
McCain 08! :)
Candy, I don't know why you'd be surprised that Obama would praise Bush for his humanitarian efforts? Obama is a giant for anyone who helps the "least of these". i.e. I think you missed the verse in Matt. It says to treat all people like you'd treat Jesus". Obama is a Christ-like person, so has the right to call himself a Christ-one. Walking in His footsteps.
I t is not necessary to bash other's who do good. That is the example of UNITY that our country needs. Only Obama is stressing this wonderful goal for our country and the world. SEE THE GOOD AND PRAISE IT.
One of the few things GWB has done that is actually noble and doesn't benefit his campaign supporters or Big Oil.
And then GWB turns around and wants to gut the Endangered Species Act. Is it any wonder why GWB gets so little praise from Obama and the rest of us?
OBAMA LOOKS VERY PRESDENTSAL . HE LOOKS COOL .
BO OBAMA 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually, Candy, this is old news.
Barack Obama praised George Bush's AIDS program much earlier this year at a faith forum with Hillary Clinton. John McCain didn't attend that one.
Obama giving credit where credit is due.This is the sign of an intelligent and impartial president to me.
My sense is this is a planted question that feeds into an opportunity for McCain to tell about the adoption of his daughter. That was, of course, a nice thing of the McCains to do, but this question was plainly asked to give him an advantage.
Did he ask about infidelity? No, and that would have given Obama an advantage.
Let's see, was there an agenda?
whether anybody realizes it or not OBAMA is bush III.
count on it. he's not getting out of iraq, will soften his tone on taxes. staet a bigger war in afghanistand, expand the bush spending program even more.
what do the disagree on? JUDGES only!
