My decision was cast for McCain when I heard a black man on the news networks back in June or July say "It would be poetic justice for a black man to be in office."
It shows that America is in deep trouble still.
It's not so much the charactor of Obama that concerns me( and I have the right to be concerned)...it's his followers that have me fearful.
So your vote was decided by having the chance to spite a television commentator? I agree...this does show that America is in deep trouble.
What troubles you about Obama's character?
There will be more people vote for McCain because he's white than will vote for Obama because he's black.
Character is overrated, we need intelligence, vision and an ability to unite people in a comoon cause on that office.
Having said that, there are more than a few red flags on McCain in that regard on Mccain:
His judgement in picking Palin
His relentless negative ads
His feeding on the Arab/Hussein/Muslim/Un-American right wing loony attacks
His flip flopping to pander to the far right
His tie-ins to terrorist Oliver North, his staff's ties to Saddam Hussein
His notoriously bad temper, at one point he actually called his wife a c*** in public
His ties to Charles Keating
His unwillingness to decry those who would bomb an abortion clinic as domestic terrorists
I could go on and on on, but I won't.
"To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of s*** with bits of broken glass in it?”
To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked. "
