Re: Obama will lose by Jack Ward (August 11, 2008)

I am so upset with Mr. Ward because his article is completely ACCURATE when it comes to how an Obama supperter like me is currently feeling.  I am 28 and live in Madison, WI and I voted for Obama in Feburary during the Wisconsin Primary because I was really impressed with his words. 

But I must admit that in the past couple of months I am starting to think Obama is not as intelligent or qualified as I wished him to be.   But the truth is, Mr. Ward, most of us who supported (and still do support) Obama do so because we are desperate for a change from the last 8 years of the Bush administration.

This election is not really a vote for Obama as much as it as a vote against the type of conservative Republicans that have been in power the last two terms. I know there are probably more qualified candidates than Obama, but right or wrong he did not support the war from the beginning and he looks at the world differently - specifically because he does not think that everything America does is perfect and to hell with those who disagree. 

My complete frustration with Republicans today is that they have become cheerleaders to their party leaders.   Loyalty should stand with the Constitution and not to either party.  So if I do vote for Obama this November, I think you should realize that there is some level of hesitancy with which I do it, but at this point I would rather vote for hope without proof rather than this "stay the course" attitude which I feel will take this nation to ruin.

Sincerely,
RJ
