I have friends who tell me the United States is not ready for a black man to be president. That's such a load of crap! I can't believe there are still people out there who can judge a man by his skin color and think that matters at all! Look where a good old white-boy has gotten us. If you're going to make judgements based on skin color, I'd say we should never have another white man as president, given the track record of the past two!
I know Barack's campaign is in trouble because of the Hillary fundraising juggernaut. Below is a message I got from the Obama campaign people. Everyone do what they can to help! Go Barack!
Message form Obama Campaign:
Last night each of the presidential campaigns reported their third-quarter fundraising numbers.
The results are clear. We continue to build the largest grassroots movement in history, but Washington lobbyists and special interests rallied to help Hillary Clinton out-raise us for the first time.
If we want real change in this country, then we need to prove that together we are stronger than the lobbyist-driven money machine that has dominated Washington for too long.
The situation here is simple. We are $2.1 million behind. We must close that gap right now. I need you to make a donation.
Hillary Clinton aggressively seeks money from Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs. She's even said that these lobbyists represent real Americans.
I think it's time to turn the page on that kind of politics, and that's why I have not accepted a dime from Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs in this race. We rely on a network of more than 350,000 ordinary people to make us competitive -- more supporters than all the other Democratic candidates combined.
Washington lobbyists have chosen their candidate and are determined to provide her with an overwhelming advantage. But you can even up this contest.
In the face of the most entrenched political machine in Democratic politics, I believe a movement of ordinary Americans can change our country. And you can prove that right now.
