Up until now the greatest danger Obama Faces is Obama himself. If he chooses Hillary as his running mate he’ll also have to worry about his health and well being. At even the slightest sign of a cold we all know that Hillary would hand Barack a Kleenex, but try to assume Presidential power.

As an African-American, I’m proud to see someone who looks like me get as far as he has. His speech writing and oratory skills are brilliant and I can’t wait to hear how he plans to accomplish everything he promises…before the election.

As a sometime advertising copywriter myself, I know the power of words and how they can manipulate the perception of the masses. Even John McCain has changed the theme of his campaign from “Experience” to “Change” because the buzzword works. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!

I’d like Barack to go to Iraq, without McCain leading him by the hand, and come back with an honest report to the American people.

And as far as the recent rise of “Monkey Barellism” in politics goes, we all have skeletons in our closets and have had associations that can be considered dubious at best. It’s how quickly we resolve and distance ourselves from them that builds our character and credibility.

I haven’t made my mind up on who I want to vote for yet, but I do know I don’t want a President who’s either too fast or too slow on the nuclear trigger.

To See how MONKEY BARELLISM SCANDAL ROCKS CAPITOL HILL! https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2008/06/02/monkey-barrelism-rocks-capitol-hill/

When one monkey tries to make it out of a barrel full of other monkeys, there are always those monkeys who will try to pull him back down. That’s “Monkey Barrelism” !

Racism, Sexism, and Ageism are certainly issues in the race to the White House, but “Monkey Barrelism” is the most dangerous threat to our political system and to the American way of life.

Now that a delusional white priest who claims to be an Obama supporter has joined in the fray Obama’s ex-pastor, the not-so- Reverend Wright started, we all can talk openly about “Monkey Barrelism” without being considered racists.

These men have their own agendas and are basking in all the attention the media is giving them. Unfortunately there are many people out there who believe words that are repeated in the media over and over again are the undisputed truth.

The democratic primaries have gone on for so long, the candidates themselves are getting tired of their own bullshit, which is why they’re making so many gaffes in their speeches. They all speak without thinking and have to issue daily apologies. They should apologize to the public for their pandering rhetoric and endless sound bytes that are supposedly “taken out of context”…but are remembered far longer than any apology they might make.

I wonder if the October surprise is going to be the “outing” of Obama, finally putting the gay rumors to rest. Will it be the “Water boarding” of McCain to see if the guy can really take it, or could it possibly be Hillary announcing that she’s replacing Judge Judy on her TV Show, while Judy is offered the Vice-Presidential spot on both the Republican and Democratic ticket.

Before the general election we have time to stop “Monkey Barrelism” before it rears its ugly head again. In November I want to respect the candidate that I’ll back and not just wind up voting for the lesser of two assholes running.

One monkey don’t stop the show…but two or three can slow it down!
