    Marsha and Bill – The book club is designed to introduce people to Obama, his background, etc. nothing more. Feel free to contact a local library for a free copy.
    Pamela – Feel free to visit all the candidates website and compare the candidates issues side-by-side.
    Ann – Can you provide a link or reference to the pledge you speak of.
    Andrea – Feel free to dig up any bad news about Obama as you wish.
    Chris – 90% of Obama's contributions come from individual donations of $100 or less. No PAC or lobby money.

    Support the candidate of your choice, but make sure you do due diligence in researching all aspects of your candidate and other candidates before making judgements.

    Marsha from Oregon. You probably should read a book before you comment about the contents of the book. Obama's books are about him, his life and his family but thats not all its about. Its about the country, the situation we have on our hands and his proposals to remedy this situation and continue to give Americans the Auduacity to Hope for better things even when faced with adversities.

    Is it true that Obama went to a couple of muslim schools,does not salute the American flag (hand over heart for a civilian),attended a Catholic shcool for a couple of years and when elected to office he used the Koran to take his oath with instead of the traditional Bible? And one of the muslim schools that he attended was a jihadic extremist muslim school.... is that true as well? If that is true then I don't think Obama should be elected president of this country or any other democratic nation for that matter. Also,did he put aside the muslim faith to put on a "Christian" facade because it would be easier to get elected to office if he appeared to be of the "Christian" faith? These are some serious things to consider for a man who is running for seat in the highest office of the land. If,in fact he did attend a jihadic extremist school and took the oath of office using the Koran instead of the Bible,wouldn't that raise a red flag as being a potential Islamic Jihadist and therefore a threat to national security in this country? Just think.... the ultimate sleeper cell comes to life as the president of the USA...... hmmmmmm.
