About as much as Al Gore and the rest of the $$$$ politicians.....seriously... Oil is relatively down right now but skyrocketing prices are around the corner....I predict between December 10 and January 23. Buy now. (However, I pray I'm wrong)
I still don't buy into the Obama thing. If he wins I pray he'll be a good President and lives up to whatever he says. If McCain wins I pray he'll be a good President and lives up to whatever he says.
I really don't buy into the McCain = 4 more years of Bush. Personally every time I hear or read it...I chuckle. I believe that about as much as Obama is Muslim.
Some people get so easily offended when others use his middle initial...B"H"O. Why? Why get offended??? This is a free world, why can't Obama use that initial proudly and why do people get offended when others use it?
Yet...others are not allowed to be offended when people out right criticize and make a mockery out of McCain's age. I guess the old saying "What's good for the goose is good for the gander" applies here. If someone gets offended by the H in BO's name they should watch what they say about the current President and the current Republican Presidential Candidate. Really...age discrimination is just as ugly as racial discrimination which is just as ugly as religious discrimination...don't ya think? So if remarks about old age is used to try to discredit someone shouldn't others be allowed to voice their opinion about not wanting certain races rule our country without someone calling that person a racist? Then on the other hand youth and inexperience can lead to poor judgment and unwise decisions just as much as old age....hmmm....interesting thought....maybe it is the youth and inexperience that makes Obama a poor orator when the teleprompter is not in front of him?
I believe that Obama is an active Christian...I may be wrong but it is my opinion...at least he was an active member of a church who believes in Christ...personally, I would think that faith and belief would push non-believers (atheists) away. Then again, another one of my opinions is that he isn't a very good Christian so maybe that is why he is so attractive to non-believers.
Overall...I know Obama will be our next President...sit back and watch...stop worrying. (If this prediction is wrong, I'll recant my skyrocketing oil prices prediction.)
What I do see here in this forum is a lot of people that won't be helping him win the Presidency...myself included. My vote will be going to McCain.
McCain is not 4 more years of Bush
By the way....It is the "Figurative" that scares people
