This is a serious Question.
I have heard so much nonsense spouted either for or against Obama and would like to get some concrete answers without the name calling and mudslinging.
I posed this question in another thread, to a faithful Obama supporter that is a member of this forum but have gotten no reply.
When I ran into a fella who had a "Vote for Change, Vote Obama" pin on his shirt I asked him why he was voting for Obama? His reply, "This country needs Change and Obama will do that." My reply was "what change? What is he going to change?" His reply was " What ? You want 4 more years of Bush?" I responded " Bush is not and cannot be a candidate for president." His response was (not kidding) " Bush lied to us about Iraq and Afghanistan, he flew tomahawk missiles into the Twin Towers so he could have a reason to get a war started with Iraq and finish what his father started."
Well I knew now was the time to quickly change the tone of the conversation so I simply asked him to tell me where Obama stands on the issues such as Abortion, Gun Control, Tort Reform, Taxes, Energy, Foreign Policy, with The Military and the War in Iraq. Iran, North Korea in particular.? His response was (no kidding again) **** off.
So I ask those of you who support Obama to state your reasons for your support as related to the Issues and where Obama stands on these Issues.
I don't care to know about McCains stand on the issues as I already know those, which is why I still undecided about who will get my vote as there are several Issues which I do not support McCains stand on.
Please keep comments specific to the question of Obamas stand on the issues and his qualifications that would make him qualified to lead this great nation.
I would also ask that Bitmasher summarily delete or edit any post that does not pertain to the spirit of the question being asked so as to not let the thread turn into a fiasco.
