Political Quote

I normally do not post in the "Politics" section.
My opinions are just that. Mine.
You can't change mine, and I can't change yours.
I don't care who you are voting for.
Nor do you care who I am voting for.
That being said, I did find this quote.
And I agree with it.

"It is not racist to question whether an untested, inexperienced Senator with no legislative or military record should be our President."

/My flamewar. Let me show you it.

Well I agree with that totally.
And I think everyone on this board will too. I don't think anyone here judges Obama on his skin colour, otherwise the many many discussions about his politics, promises, experience and background would not be happening.

Do I think there are some people in America who do judge him on his skin colour? Yes I do - I've seen evidence of it online.

I agree too, with both of you and the quote. Just seems like pissin into the wind to question anything about Obama here. McCain has plenty of faults too.

I think of it this way. Mozart didn't have experience when he started performing and composing when he was 4.
Einstein was working as a patent clerk when he wrote his theory of relativity.
Some people are born to do great things that can change the world for the better.

Why, because you get answers to your questions? You don't like the answers?

Absolutely. Nor is it affirmative action when, after examining all the relevant factors, I decide that Obama would be a better President than his opponent.

Damn you women and your sneaky 'logic'.
