    When You Get to the Voting Booth

    This is not at all a racist thread, and in no way am I rascist I just don't like Obama for his political ideas.

    But what I am wondering is do you think when the people start going to the voting booth will the people standing on the fence (as in undecided) on Obama will they really contemplate the race issue.

    Don't be ignorant and rascist because I think this is a definite issue for the Democratic voters in the south.

    Given I was able to draw that arrow to Obama during the primaries, I think that I will be able to draw the arrow to Obama, or whatever little fun game they make us play for the general election, to Obama, in November.

    It could be an issue for other people, but not me. My father is kind of racist, but that has nothing to do with this thread. I will be voting Obama.

    I can't give an accurate representation of southern undecided voters. I really only know one southerner, my best friend, and she's been living in "Yankee territory" for the better part of a decade.

    She's generally a-political. But this cycle, she's fully supporting Obama. She's also motivated because she lost her little sister in Iraq to an IED. Her parents have stated they're not voting. They generally vote Republican, but they just don't want John McCain for his every changing policies.

    Race is not an issue for them, they just don't want to be a part of a process that they believed ultimately had an effect on their youngest daughter.

    As many people vote against him for the race issue, many people will vote with him because of his race.

    Same, I am not for entitlements or socialism for that matter. Those are my main reasons for not voting for him.

    I think more people will be voting against him because Obama Sounds Like Osama and His Middle Name Is Hussein. Its the same level of idiocy, but this way the racists have a justification that doesnt make them sound like racists.

    I completely agree. There are just as many people who want Obama to be president for what it would mean (first black president) as don't want him because he is black. In a perfect world, everyone would take the time to read up on both candidates and make an informed decision, but we all now that doesn't happen with everyone.

    Exactly what is wrong with this country today. If you don't agree with a mans politics, you have to precede your statement with a disclaimer of sorts.

    The man could be green for all i care. He's a tried and true Marxist. I don't vote for reds.

    Sucks to be you then. No place to go in the developed world. Entitlements are a fact of life. But there's always Zimbabwe.

    Aside from calling him names, do you have any proof to back that up?

    Its natural. Everyone will be biased with that. No one can deny it.

    When I go vote for him in November it won't have anything to do with him being Black. I believe his economic, health, and education policies will be better than McCain's. And that's what does it for me.

    Ironically, back in September 2007, if I had to rank the candidates in terms of their policies that I care about, it would have looked like this:

    1. Romney
    2. Dodd
    3. Edwards
    4. Richardson
    5. Obama
    6. McCain
    7. Clinton
    8. Biden


    After all the flip-flopping during the start of the primaries:
    1. Obama
    2. Dodd
    3. Edwards
    4. Romney -- still hoping he'd revert back to his Mass gov past.
    5. McCain

    But now that the third round of flip-flopping has arrived, it's pretty clear to me that John McCain wouldn't be able to do a lick of good for the economy, so there's really no question, Obama's the only candidate I could see myself voting for in November.
