HARVARD
Did you notice how one lady said she wanted the next President to be like Hillary Clinton, and John McCain, because they knew the Pledge of Allegiance and could sing The Star-Spangled Banner?

Gee whiz, I had no idea that when Barack Obama, and Michele Obama graduated from HARVARD LAW SCHOOL, they were never taught the Pledge of Allegiance or the Star-Spangle Banner!!! ;o)

1) Calling people's opinions "euphemisms" is not really fair, that makes the assumption that every white person who chooses a candidate other than Obama is racist, reguarless of what they give as a reason.

2) Voting against Obama (as in democrats who will vote republican for the first time) is wrong for sure.

3) There is a HUGE underground smear campaign going on right now....trying to paint Obama as a radical black muslim who does not value the US....and a lot of what these people were saying, the Hussain comment and the Pledge of Allegience comment are directly from the untrue email that is circulating. And people are too stupid to check facts.....

4) number 3 proves that most people do not deserve the right to vote, they are just too easily duped.

Look at three versions of lie the snopes addresses

How sad that some are so desperate to keep a man from becoming President of the United States, because of the color of his skin!

Were those people alarmed because they believed it, or because of the lies?

I'm not suprised that people have that mindset, but sitting here and actually listening to people say it is still shocking.

If America elects McCain, America will deserve McCain. One might say that our country deserves better, but it deserves what it votes for.

I'll never understand how some people will be voting for McCain, when McCain represents every single thing Bush does.

Oh come now people... Get real
You are talking about West Virginia. You are also looking at a video that has been editred to show just what the maker wants to show. How many people white and black are going to vote for Obama in West Viorginia who were not in the final cut?

Those who were used did make some valid comments although not very well. Remember the middle of applachia is not the place to fine the most eloquent people. Most are from coal mining familys and education was barely enough to get them able to fill out an applivation to become a coal miner like their fathers and grand fathers.

The valid points they did make were, "WHO is Obama?"

He is good at reading speaches, but cannot think on his own. He said Bush or McCain could not compete in a debate on foreign policy, but he has refused to debate anyone on Foreigh Policy. There is a standing challenge from talk show host Michael Levin, to debate Obamma on the topic of foreign policy, and Levin will give $5000.00 to any charity that Obama wishes as long as its an American charity that does not support Islamo-fascism or terrorism in any way.

Why will Obama not tell the American Public what he believes? Why will he not tell us HOW he expects to make peace in Iraq and Afghanstan? How does he expect to provide healthcare without taxing me into poverty? How does he expect to push his own brand of socialism without destroying th eUSA in the Process? and WHY THE HELL is he pushing the Global Poverty Act (S.2433) and attack America's Sovereignty?

WHY the hell does he think that America has 57 states? He does have a degree form one of the most prestigious colleges in the US. Maybe he was thinking of the number of Islamic states which happen to number 57.

IF he wore that Flag pin on his lapel more often he might happen to see there are 50 stars on it not 57.

IF You wanna see just how fast a black and a woman can get into the White House, get Condi Rice to run. Her landslide victory would be massive!

Re: Oh come now people... Get real
Daddy, after watching that video, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that W Virginia is full of racists. The only person, who made sense and spoke well, was Brenda the black woman.

Of course Obama can think on his own, otherwise he wouldn't have graduated from Harvard Law Schools with top honors. And I'm sure he knows the Star Bangle Banner, to boot. Obama hasn't refused a debate on foreign policy with McCain, and in fact has invited not only him, but Bush to have one with him.

McCain is no Maverick; he's a Flip Flopper who still refuses to sign that Vet Bill, and I just can't get that favorite tune of his, "Bomb Bomb Iran" out of my head. Perhaps some don't know who Obama is, but I do, because of this 6th sense that I have, and I see a most befitting man who is best qualified to be our president. As for McCain, most of us see who he is; a Bush Clone. This country seriously can't withstand another 8 years of what it's had with Bush. This country is a Humpty Dumpty who fell off the wall, and frankly, I feel it will be an impossibility for Obama to put H.D. back together again, but then, if anybody can save our country, Obama is the man to do it. Besides, I want a president who is cool, calm and collected like Obama; unlike McCain who seems to have quite a little temper.

This country is falling apart Daddy, why can’t you see it, and why can’t you see Bush and his administration had everything to do with it? This little chicken feed $600 that in all actuality is our money, isn’t gonna save the day

Using a bunch of dumbass hillbillies to portray white people as racists is like using Rev. Wright to say all black people in America are paranoid, anti-white, anti-government radical hate mongers. It simply isn't fair, and as other comments here have pointed out, that video could easily have been edited to show the point its makers wanted to display. America may not be colorblind - perhaps sections of it never will be - but to base that idea on those people in that video is ridiculous, and a little insulting.

I have encountered that sentiment myself. A black man at my college accused me of being racist when I told him I did not feel Obama was up for the job. He was too ignorant to listen when I listed the political reasons for not voting for Obama. That is one tiny sliver of the other side of the coin, which is not presented in this obnoxious video: there are people looking to make race an issue among people like me who don't care. I have no problem with a black man, a white woman, or anyone else being President. But, as I have said many time, just not this black man (Obama) or this woman (Hillary).

Only an idiot would glean that all whites are racists after watching that video.
