Let`s just see how long it takes before the far-right conspiracy theorists claim Obama killed her to gain sympathy votes.

Oh wait nevermind. They already are.

> You can actually go to the church`s website and watch any of the sermons he`s given in the past

But let`s be real here, given the fuss, any past sermons which DID have content like that would have been quietly removed when the poo hit the fan for Obama. BUT the thing is, its the job of a church to preach - you can win lots of friends preaching "God loves you all no matter how bad you are", but you can`t win many people`s souls into Heaven that way. Jesus Himself said "I come not to bring peace but a sword". You can`t equate what Obama`s church preaches with what he believes, no-one in history went to a church that 100% agreed with them on everything. You go to one that you are comfortable with that GENERALLY feels right. If OBAMA really IS a black supremacist he won`t last long, if NOT then no problem.

What I find is funny is that people assume that one sermon (in which Rev. Wright was quoting an AMERICAN GENERAL) is what he preached all the time. You can actually go to the churches website and watch any of the sermons he`s given in the past. None of them that I`ve seen (and I`ve watched many) have any of the "black supremacy" comments that these detractors keep going on about. But that doesn`t really matter at this point. Just go out tomorrow and vote, then let things happen as they`re meant to.

quote: "he was like a father figure to me", then all of a sudden when black hitler rev pops in the media, "I didn`t know...." what a load of ever loving CRAP!!! Kills me to read peoples comments like they KNOW Obama personally, like the guy is gonna step foot in poor neighborhoods and make it all better, yeah right, and I`ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell ya`!! People who were staunch Bush supporters, you couldn`t tell them they were wrong for nothing, now look at this country. That moron gets elected, God help us all!! You who vote for this double talking BS artist, go complain with the Bush supporters, the rest of us will tell you "I told you so!!!!"......

Speaking from the Outside of the US, I sincerely HOPE that Obama will win... I actually don`t like the guy personally, I think he`s a pretender, but if its a choice of him or McCain (whom i see as a warmonger) then I will go the "peace" option.

Unfortunately, I DON`T see Obama as a shoe-in even though logically he should be, because I`m just not SURE yet that the US has outgrown racism to the extend of electing a black President. That`s partly why I call Obama a Pretender, of necessity he has had to "play down" his blackness and "act white" to have any chance at all. Or maybe I`M the racist for seeing it that way, I don`t know.

Sadly though, the fact is that only 50% of people vote at best, and they are predominantly white middle class Americans who will go with the familiar "grandfather" image of McCain. Can Obama convince lower-classes who don`t normally vote to get out and do it this time, and will that make a difference? We can`t predict.

how i looked at obama`s choice of church is that going to that church is obviously a socially expected thing from prominent black figures (oprah) and the issue that concerns me more is that he is just going to church out of formality and is probably a very secular man, which i think he has shown himself to be throughout this election.

The Church was radical from the beginning. They gave a lifetime acheivement award to Farrakahn, leader of the Nation of Islam, who calls Judaism a "gutter religion". The church urges its members to only support businesses of the black community. Could you imagine what it would be like if McCain went to a church that told its followers to support the white community? Obama chose his black supremacist church. He chose to listen to Reverend Wright`s hate speech ("No! NOT God bless America! God damn America!" "the US-KKK of A!") for twenty years.

Ok turtledude, let`s have a quick talk. I get where you`re coming from. I am anti-Obama myself. (I`m anti-McCain too, just so we`re clear). And I get what you mean about it being too big of a coincidence. But let`s be honest with ourselves.

(A) There are more than six billion people in this world. Coincidences, some extremely bizarre, are going to happen.

(B) How does a dead relative get someone more votes? People do not vote out of sympathy, and by this stage in the campaign nearly everyone has made up their mind.

(C) Can you possibly imagine the consequences of Obama killing anyone, let alone his grandmother? At such a coincidental time, there is bound to be scrutiny, and getting away with murder under the eyes of the entire world would be nearly impossible.

(D) She was 86.

(E) She had cancer.

If you have been paying ANY attention to how Obama has run his campaign you would absolutely know this isn`t "fishy." He is an honest, sincere, respectable guy that even when for the most part he could`ve taken unfair jabs at the McCain campaign he didn`t. He`s run an admirable, on track, respectable, organized campaign and people from all sides of the aisles can give him that.

Only a f*cking moron would think he would have to pull something like what you are suggesting at this point.

Oh FFS, no prizes for guessing where YOU stand on 9/11 and the Moon Landings. Isn`t it possible that the strain and tension of the approaching event was too much for an old lady to take any more? Or that she had to die SOMETIME? Or that she should have died a month ago but has been desperately pushing the envelope of every available drug and treatment jsut to hold on until the big day, but her body just couldn`t take it any more? Honestly Turtle, listen carefully - "The Government doesn`t want YOU to jump off a high bridge"

I`m not, but I am saying it makes it appear like that. The fact that we are arguing / discussing this is disrespectful to her image.

And that is my point - it does nothing more than add sympathy to Obama, at the expense of her life. I don`t blame him, I blame new companies feeling a need to report this and us for talking about it.

I will "eff off" my good sir, and actually respect the woman`s loss instead of spewing garbage like "omg what will he feel?" and "Zomg even though I didn`t know her I should act like she was an important part of my life."

As a Conservative, I offer my condolences to Obama`s family. It doesn`t change my vote, but I really feel for the guy. If anyone does vote for him out of sympathy, they are moronic. It should be all about the issues. It is a very tough thing to deal with though, I mean death and all. I don`t think it is moral to question the motives of her death though turtle. If it did turn out the way you say, don`t think it won`t be in the news before tomorrow, but its just such a jackass thing to make comments like you did.

She has had cancer for a long time and obviously her body just couldn`t hold on for one more day. Why does everything that hapens have to be some kind of conspiracy. A sick woman died. That`s all.

One post does not a troll make. Rest assured, I`ll be keeping an eye on turtle for repeated and sustained douchebaggery over time, aka trolling, in which case a ban could be in order.

Turtle:

We never said it was. Just don`t bring his dead grandmother into it.

And Nerd, I agree. That`s for tomorrow.

Hmm...but I suppose its OK that Hussein Obama wants to take my money that I worked for and give it to people who didn`t earn it...

...and its OK he was a member of a racist, black-supremacist church for 20 years...

Turtle:

That was epicly tasteless. You should be ashamed.

There is a time and place for attacks, but to bring somebody`s newly dead grandmother into it is not the time.

And before you make the argument, we certainly would not do it to John Mccain(ok, some nutjob probably would, but I wouldn`t...)

Turtle, do yourself a favor and shut up.

You`ve got mods and Fancylad about ready to put a boot up your ass. I can understand you`re not a democrat, but that`s no excuse to be downright cruel about this. How would you like it if I made fun of your grandmother dying?

Next important questions:

Will hate-speech master Reverend Wright perform the funeral service?

And will domestic terrorist William Ayers be paying his respects?

I genuinely sat in my chair and went, "oh!" and sighed really... loudly.
that`s really, really sad, but Nidonemo`s right - my great gran went like that.
No better way.

yeah, turtledude, choose your battles a little more wisely.

when someone dies, that`s not the forum to be a jerk in--regulars (and non-regulars) don`t take kindly to that.

And again, my deepest respects to Barack...and the complete opposite of that to Turtledude.

all kidding aside (it`s not often i can squeeze an ed rooney reference in there), this has to suck for the guy.

so close, he can taste it and this happens. at least he was prepared and he knew it was a possibility.

plus, i`m sure his gran was already proud of him.

vv "also Turtle.. you`re a jackass and a troll, and I really hope you`re banned"

Much as I`d like to Lauraly, I`m wrestling with my Inner Mod, who must remain impartial at all times. Unfortunatley there`s no IAB rule against being a douchebag (sh*t, otherwise we`d never get done with banning...).

One post does not a troll make. Rest assured, I`ll be keeping an eye on turtle for repeated and sustained douchebaggery over time, aka trolling, in which case a ban could be in order.

Rooney: You just produce a corpse, and I`ll release Sloane. I wanna see this dead grandmother first hand.

Cameron: I`m sorry, Ed, did you say you wanted to see a body?

Rooney: Yeah, that`s right, just, uh, roll her old bones on over here, and I`ll dig up your daughter. You know that`s school policy.

It`s a darn shame. If anybody`s not watching the telly, I just watched Obama talk about it. You could tell at the end this guy was crying. I mean, tears down the face crying. I feel really bad that he had this happen, of all times, just before such a big event.

I have a hat and a half of respect for Obama. I hope he wins.

McCain would rather lose an election than loose a war.

Obama would rather loose a grandmother than loose an election.

Wow... that`s awful. Not so much that she passed, she was an old woman who I`m sure had a full life and when someone passes at that age you should celebrate their life more so that mourn their death, though of course it will always be heartbreaking to lose a loved one.... but more so that she passed before getting to see this election to it`s completion.

My heart goes out to Obama and his family.


(also Turtle.. you`re a jackass and a troll, and I really hope you`re banned)

Or DID she?? How convenient, the old "pull-at-the-heartstrings-aww" tactic so conveniently timed? Reminds me of Johnny Fairplay`s "dead mother" on Survivor... or am I just getting WAY too cynical with age... LOL

The sad thing is that the Republicans don`t believe it. They want a certificate. And I predict that YOUREWINNER will have something trollish to say about this...
