    What are your thoughts on this.

    I see some subtle bias on the part of the reporter.
    However Senator Obama failed to answer her question.

    Not answering the question isn't too much of a problem in the hubbub of the moment. But, habitually calling women "sweetie" exposes at least a subconscious denigration of women, I would think. But then, I am not straight and don't know how str8 men reflexively react to women.

    A politician making promises he cannot keep, then trying to skirt the difficult questions. Gee that is a new one on me! icon_twisted.gif

    LOL... all you need to do is read where the clip CAME FROM
    You listed a NEWS MAX source???

    First of all
    If you're a journalist or if you've taken journalism 101
    or maybe even read a paper in your life
    you don't start a story with a statement like that
    ESPECIALLY if you're ambushing a person specifically to catch them when they CAN'T answer your question

    That's why he called her sweetie...
    because she was somewhere where she shouldn't have been
    putting a microphone in his face when it shouldn't have been there

    Just because you have a microphone in your hand does not mean you can ask a question 24 hrs a day

    And if you think that Barack Obama didn't answer that question more than once while he was there at that plant
    then you need to brush up on Barack Obama

    You're not going to get away with driveby republican tactics here my man

    not while I'm watchin'

    This is part and only PART of what he told the workers there

    Obama told more than 200 people at the meeting that he wants to invest billions to help the auto industry become more competitive.

    He proposed a $150-billion federal investment over 10 years in the green economy, including incentives for the auto industry to develop more fuel-efficient cars; $1 billion a year to provide manufacturers with grants to convert to cleaner technologies; double the amount of federal money going into the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, to implement plant conversions, and $100 million a year for the Advanced Manufacturing Fund, which would invest in research and development of technological advances.

    ask "sweetie" if that's enuf for her

    Using the word "Sweetie" isn't so awful - but months of empty rhetoric is alarming.

    "I'm gonna (sic) change America - brick by brick!"

    Right - sure you are pal. And are you going to hold your thumb and forefinger just like JFK every time you make one more empty speech?

    Mr. Obama, do you want to tell us again about how you didn't know your good reverend was making ugly racist remarks - for twenty some years.....while you were his benefactor?

    Mr. Obama, you claim your poor mother had trouble paying for her cancer treatments - and that is sad. What is pathetic is that you did not step up and pay your poor mother's medical bills yourself. How much money have you spent on your campaign to become president? Your poor mother deserved your support at her time of need. You spent more on one ad than her whole medical bill would have been - where are your priorities, sir?

    I know it is time for a black, hispanic, asian or other individual for high office - but come on, THIS character?

    Maybe because he actually thinks he's ready to be President and he's no where near ready.

    I suggest you check your timelines and then figure out how Mr. Obama gets the money to fund his election. Your accusation is easily refutable. Hit the internets and quit making yourself look foolish.

    I don't think it's a big deal. I think it's a term of endearment. If he called her Fatty or Ugly I'd have a problem with it!

    I don't give a crap what he calls some second rate reporter because I know I'm not voting for him anyways!

    But still, I think the reporter was being rude by slinging a question like that in his face when he's obviously busy. Plus, didn't he address the issues earlier?

    Sorry buddy but I doubt he'll get elected. And if he does I'm pretty sure he'll be assassinated in no time.

    Now he says "Lay Off my Wife!". I think she's fair game. He has to say that or Michelle will spank him.

    I don't want a first lady who has been ashamed of America all her life. Cindy is pickled but she'll do nicely.

    Auryn, you've got the unmmitigated gall to try to insult me? Come on - you're a bright guy. Further study will show you that Mr. Obama is and was a millionaire when he claimed his poor mother couldn't pay her medical bills. Instead of crying out for another government program to pay her bills, he should have just paid them himself - perhaps with just some of the money he gave his good reverend for over twenty years. You know this would have been the prudent course of action for him to take. Why don't you just admit your man is deeply flawed, a shallow man who does little more than continually bash the incumbent? Auryn, maybe you could offer Mr. Obama something positive or productive to contemplate should he ever become president. How unfortunate that all we hear every day from him is more mud slinging and empty rhetoric.

    How unfortunate that a brilliant, experienced black man or woman was not chosen to run for president. Opportunity lost!
