Re: Is this really what he reads?

Interesting Snopes link, thanks.

So Obama is reading a book by a well-respected author that talks about current world politics and how the global power base is changing, but still gives hope that America can stay strong in the new millennium? And this man wants to help develop America's foreign policy for the next 4-8 years?

What was he thinking? You don't need all that learning and understanding nonsense when you can just bomb folks into submission. I mean, just look how well that's worked out so far.

Re: Is this really what he reads?

Read my .sig line, guys. In case it's not totally clear, McBush is disastrous, and Obama is unpalatable. I'm still voting for Shealey.

I thought Grif could be his VP. Or maybe Secretary of Transportation.

Good point! If you're gonna play war, you might as well play to win. Vietnam, again?
