Cleveland mayor endorses Obama

Still no decision from Cincinnati's mayor, but Cleveland's mayor has endorsed Barack Obama:

From the Obama campaign:

Cleveland, OH -- Today, Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson announced his endorsement of Senator Barack Obama for President at a community gathering in Cleveland with Michelle Obama.

"As the Mayor of Cleveland I know first hand the struggles that working families face, and how desperately we need a new direction in Washington," said Mayor Jackson. "Sen. Obama provides the real change Americans so urgently need, and has spent his life fighting for working families. He is committed to revitalizing the urban core of America, fighting poverty, bringing good-paying jobs back to Ohio, and lowering health care costs. Senator Obama is committed to improving the lives of the least of us. He provides hope to those who need it most. He will fix what is wrong in America today. That's why I am endorsing Senator Obama to be the next President. He will bring change we can believe in."

And the beat goes on.

The beating Of HRC that is...

Clinton played too heavily on her "experience" and people were forced to remember what they didn't like about Pres Clinton. HRC embodies a lot of those negatives while Obama embodies much needed good Change in a lot of peoples minds.

That and HRC doesn't know how to spend campaign money effectively.

I think we dodged a bullet if that type of spending foreshadowed her economic policies!

OBAMA 2008!

If pie in the sky,cotton candy,and pitchers of Kool-Aid sound yummy to you,then yes,vote for Obama.
If you want substance like a filet mignon,creme brulee,and a glass of fine cabernet sauvignon,vote McCain.

If you like Charlie Keating, cozy lobbyists and insider politics as usual, McCain is the man ! He and Hillary are part of the problem, not the solution.

We will vote McCain should Obama be the Democratic nominee !

1.) He has the experience.

2.) He is willing to cross party lines.

3.) He is willing to keep a base in IRAQ (critical for oil supply security).

4.) He is old, may die and any VP would have slim to no chance of winning a Pres. election.

PATHETIC Phony King Imitator !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE CLINTON 2008 !

I AM SO SICK OF DEMOCRATS SAYING THEY WILL VOTE FOR MCCAIN IF OBABMA GETS THE NOMINATION. YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE NOT DONE ANY RESEARCH ON HIS POLICIES, BECAUSE IF YOU HAD, YOU WOULD KNOW TAHT HE AND HILLARY ARE NOT THAT FAR OFF ON A LOT THE ISSUES. THATS WHY I CRACK UP WHEN I HEAR/SEE/READ STUPID COMMENTS LIKE THE ONE POSTED ABOVE. I CAN NOT HELP TO WONDER WHY SOME HILLARY SUPPORTERS REALLY HATE OBAMA SO MUCH. OBAMA OR CLINTON WOULD BE A FAR BETTER CRY THAN GEORGE W. OLDER ILLEGITIMATE BROTHER MCCAIN!!!! ITS LIKE YOU ARE SAYING IF MY CANDIDATE DOES NOT WIN THEN TO HELL WITH THE COUNTRY...GROW UP PEOPLE AND REMEMBER WHAT SHOULD BE THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF ANY SELF RESPECTING DEMOCRAT...GET THE REPUBLICANS THE HELL OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. OBAMA 08'

"larry" is a Hillary bot.

Don't bother responding to it.

HRC has resorted to machines to run her campaign, because she cant pay real people and no one wants to volunteer for her.

Obama '08!

Every time I see Hillary Clinton campaign and have a debate, I am so proud to see her professional style and hear her well thought out solutions. She has demonstrated the depth of her knowledge on health care, foreign countries, new job development, and education. Keep it up all the way to the White House. Go Hillary and Ohio.

Clinton has plenty of volunteers-

Obama has worshippers- I'm waiting for them to start speaking in tongues at his rallies, they already fall prostrate on the ground

No Billary!! If you want to see your hard earned money taken from you and given to the unmotivated, then vote for Clinton.

At least Hillary is PROUD to be an American

REASONS WHY MANY DISLIKE OBAMA:

(1) good orator - nothing else
(2) socialistic business ideas right out of the Havana playbook
(3) has attended a racist church for over 15 years (even though his mother was white - how sick can one be??)
(4) wants to change America and the world. What FOOL falls for that?
(5) linked to crack cocain use and homosexual behavior (Obama is married). This may be true or false (just like the accusations of McCain). Stay tuned for more on this.

I want either Senator Obama or Senator Clinton to tell us how and when they plan to ask for their Attorney General or a special prosecutor invgestigate the Repugnicant party as a a corrupt organization. If so, do they believe a RICO prosecution is justified, given the illegal war and the ever-growing number of its officials at all levels coast to coast who have been convicted of various fraud and corruption crimes and sex offenses against children.

Soon there will be an opening in Havana for a new President. Obama for President (of Cuba). Your socialism fits in well there.

Senator Obama: When he falls from grace, you won't be able to pay people enough to say that they supported him...

The truth is that Hillary did supported NAFTA. She said it was a bad idea after the fact. Borack Obama was telling the American people nothing but the plain truth. In regards to her health plan she was the one who said that her health plan will be a mandate..when pressed on how she will do that she said by going after wages, garnsh wages. Barack Obama is being straight with the American people. I just dont understand why Hillary continues her lies one after another. She has proven something very disturbing that we Americans have seen in the last couple of weeks. She has been over dramatic and very defensive. Im sorry that is not presidential. I hope we all democrats united and support Borack Obama. In Ohio Nafta was responsible for closing over 50,000 JOBS. HOW can we as decent Americans over look this and vote for Hillary…No way…I have lots of family in OHIO and the last thing I want is for them to loose thier jobs..Shame on you Hillary. She said the samthing about the Iraq war..she voted for it and now she said maybe it was a bas idea, yet she refuses to come clean. Hillary and bill are nothing but scandalous people.
