Hi dear American friends,

I am wondering about your non-thinking politics in the News, how you guys are without thinking you are jumping from 10 floors down to catch a fish!) by the way when you reach down to the water the Fish is gone.

Same thing about American Politics now!!!!!!! in the past(2004) without thinking voted for war President Bush and now about H. Clinton and B.Clinton that THey are blaming Obama for his Drug use (( so Obama never lied about that )) On that age We never know what H. and B. Clintons did ? Are you awear of that NEVER EVER and they never ever tell you guys. and more important that B.Clinton Sworn as a President of USA and He lied under the same oath and Sworn to his wife and family you and his country(( So We don't know about other Darks side of Hilary and Bill's personal life that they coverd long time ago and will never surface to you and any body else Make sure for that ok))) but Obama even in his personal life He told you guys in his book and in all hs speeches that you guys ask about it)). So for me I am a Canadian I don't get any advantage from booth side but i will tell you that ((( Don't trust, Don't blieve, Don't Jump for those lies and cries that you you will be suffring once again for mores years to come! Why ? Because you are paying with your life that pass with heart breaking suffer every day after to another day of your life not mine !

God Bless America and good luck all.

Obama has been "The Media Darling, Rock Star" amog some others, and I have found The Media to be almost 1005 behind him, I have found not even one negative story over these many months.
