Obama Likes Rule Breaking Florida And Michigan Now

Barack Obama has decided, now that it doesn’t matter, to fully seat the Florida and Michigan delegates. In March Hillary Clinton won both of those states and counting their delegates might have turned the election the other way just before super Tuesday. Obama hired his lawyers to work behind the scenes to make sure the delegates from these two states would not count. On Sunday he wrote a letter to the co-chairs of the Democratic National Convention’s Credentials Committee asking them to give Florida and Michigan them a “full vote” at the Democratic convention this month. In the letter Obama said, “I believe party unity calls for the delegates from Florida and Michigan to be able to participate fully alongside the delegates from the other states and territories.” Last spring it was all about breaking some rules, but now it is all about a perceived party unity. Obama has asked the committee to pass a resolution when they meet on August 24th to give each delegate a full vote instead of the half vote that was agreed on in May.

    You obviously do NOT like Obama. Who are you going to vote for in the November general election?

    I am having a hard time with this decision actually. I supported Obama at first, and even voted for him on Prez Idol all the time, but the longer I see him the less I like him. I also have a hard time with McCain, but he is a republican democrat. and he is really old… I will not be able to make that decision until Nov. maybe I will just write in my name. I did that for a Senate position once and got three votes, (thanks mom)…

    Thank you for responding. It’s nice to actually have some dialog in here for a change.
    Why don’t you let people post new messages in here (as opposed to just “comments” on what you post)? I think as long as it is kept civil and respectful with no profanity then why not?
