    What makes me feel worse is this : “”After consulting with Barack Obama, Democratic leaders are likely to call Congress back to work after the election in hopes of passing legislation that would include extended jobless benefits, money for food stamps and possibly a tax rebate, officials said Saturday. The bill’s total cost could reach $150 billion, these officials said.””

    I might be eligible for some of those benefits actually! Maybe i should vote for the donkey this year. Or maybe i’ll just abstain cuz they are all corrupt, scary, and out of touch.

    Is it a soy based loaf because I don’t eat red meat – High Cholesterol. So as i was saying – you don’t think it’s off base for a presidential candidate to negotiate with other foreign leaders before an election?

  3. “Both Obama and the Iraqi official with whom he had the conversation, Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, deny Obama ever pushed for a delay.”

    Mr. Obama’s conversations with the Iraqi leaders, confirmed to The Washington Times by his campaign aides, began just two weeks after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in June and stirred controversy over the appropriateness of a White House candidate’s contacts with foreign governments while the sitting president is conducting a war.

    Some of the specifics of the conversations remain the subject of dispute. Iraqi leaders purported to The Times that Mr. Obama urged Baghdad to delay an agreement with Mr. Bush until next year when a new president will be in office – a charge the Democratic campaign denies.


  5. You just made my point. “Conversations” and “Negotiations” are two different things.

    I don’t think it is odd that a sitting senator who is running for president talk with Iraqi leaders, and this was reported when it happened. Not news, desperation tactics.

    Well i think i just had my selfish vote swayed – Reading McCain’s website and he plans on wiping out unemployment benefit income taxes.

    I think i just became a one issue voter! I’m collecting unemployment so i’m voting for whomever gives me more!

    Or maybe i’l just write in Navir R. Johnson.
