Should Obama's Past be a Concern?

How do YOU feel about Barack Obama's past/current ties with people such as Bill Ayers and Rev Jeremiah Wright?
Do you feel that , in the past, he has shown questionable judgement with certain affiliations and associations, OR not? If you feel that he has, then should a history of questionable judgement send up a red flag, when considering that person as the next leader of our country? OR are you prepared to move on from his past history, and look forward to what he promises now? Perhaps you believe that the current controversy, concerning Obama's association with Ayers and Wright, should have little to no bearing on his ability to take charge of this country.

Re: Should Obama's Past be a Concern?

My problem with him is that he never openly answered what his ties with these folks really were. Everything is hush hush.

Re: Should Obama's Past be a Concern?

He's only running for the office of president of the U.S.A. Why should that concern anyone.

The past shows where they will go in the future.

Re: Should Obama's Past be a Concern?

It should be a concern if he isnt open and honest about it.

One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

Which he isnt......The man is an empty suit of only charisma and catch phrases. Frankly, the thought of him being elected frightens me.

Funny, I remember hearing him discuss it openly during the debate. If you really want to go that route you might want to think about Charles Keating. On the other hand, you could just think about the issues, and what each candidate wants to do. But I guess that would be just to darned difficult.

I'm going to have to disagree here. If you have a sex offender being open about his past and answers all questions, do you still let him open a day care?

Re: Should Obama's Past be a Concern?

Obama frightens me for many reasons. Look at how bad Illinois is doing all democrats!!

292 killed (murdered) in Chicago ;
221 killed in Iraq .
Chicago .... Who Runs it?….
Senators: Barack Obama & Dick Durbin

Rep: Jesse Jackson Jr.,

Illinois Gov: Rod Blogojevich,

Illinois House leader Mike Madigan,

Illinois Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike),

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J.
Daley)

.....our leadership in Illinois .....all DEMOCRATS.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .

Of course, they're all blaming each other!

Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

State pension fund: $44 Billion in debt… worst in country.

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax: 10.25%... highest in country.
(Look 'em up if you want).

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the
country.

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in
Illinois . And he's gonna 'fix' Washington politics for us?

and then look at what his views on gun ownership. a man is in jail for defending his home and family because he shot the intruder with a handgun and this is against the law in Illinois. He voted against a bill several times that would have made it legal.

His immigration policy is terrible, look it up, big issues. Being a border patrol agent i see the problem first hand. bad people and things come across the border, it needs to end. Not to mention middle easterners have been smuggled into the U.S.!!!!

now Iraq... I was there and in my opinion a fast withdraw would be the worst thing we could do now. thats enough of a rant from me

if she is a Ferrari when you meet her, don't be surprised when you find out she is still a Ferrari!

Re: Should Obama's Past be a Concern?

No, you just don't understand how your government works. Senators are not involved in the day to day management of a large city like Chicago. They are legislators, and make the laws for the nation. Cities are run by executive bodies, usually a mayor and some sort of city council.

Chicago is a mess, and you may feel free to put the responsibility right where it belongs, the residents of Chicago who elected a democrat named Daley, who has been mayor for years. Blaming Obama is like blaming McCain for the lack of water in Arizona.

I guess discussing issues and plans really was too hard.

Best yet. His latest commercial where he stands in the classroom and tells people what they need to do with their children.
