What if you reversed information about McBush and Obama???



What If You Reversed Information about Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin--Something to Contemplate

What if....

Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were switched around?.....think about it.

Would the country's collective point of view be different?

Ponder the following:

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage, including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?

What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?

What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to pain killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?

What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
(The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?

What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes? And was never given a command position.

What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many occasions, a serious anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution?

What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in another when there is a color difference.

Educational Background:

Barack Obama:
Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in International Relations.
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Joseph Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)

vs.

John McCain:
United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

Sarah Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in the land as well as our standing in the world. You make the call.

Hey now. A journalism degree isn't anything to scoff at! Ha but im sure a degree in journalism fro CSU is a little more esteemed than that of a U of Idaho one. I hope...

What is even going on...

Is the title supposed to say "McBush?"

Life should be more like the commercials for top-shelf spirits.

yea, i am very pro business when it comes to economics (which is by far the most important issue), but liberal in social issues, i will be voting for )bama for several reasons
1) AMAZED at how he handled bailout, related policies are amazing (except some bankruptcy ones)
2) Supreme court justices are getting old, and all they really do is social issues so i want a democrat to appoint them
3) I am really happy that warren buffet is his economic adviser
4) Republicans are just retarded right now (should have chosen Romney)
5) Even if i dont agree with all of his policies he is an exceptional leader, which is what we need right now
6) i dont support small government (am republican because probusiness is more important), but in times of crisis strong federal government is necessary

But i want you to also know i am a disgruntled hilary supporter

hmmm....personally i seriously dislike BOTH candidates, though for very different reasons. Obama is completely the opposite stand from me on most of the issues i am most concerned with, so i don't really like him as a president, but although i agree with McCain on a lot more issues, i just know he'd f up, and don't really like his as a PERSON.

I also don't like that so many people i know want to vote for Obama because he is black. That's just stupid, though i can't say it hasn't happened the other way around too...

yea, i am disappointed with the candidates too, i wanted either hilary or romney, but didnt get either. Also about people voting for him b/c he is black, i dont care who a candidate is, unless he is openly racist more than 3% of an ethnicity should vote for him (http://www.gallup.com/poll/108040/Candidate-Support-Race.aspx), i mainly hate how people vote for obama b/c he is hip, hilary was a much better candidate, but she couldnt get youth being "uncool"

I'm not a republican but that was seriously one of the most biased things I've ever seen in my life.

I am what I am and what I am is who I am.
