It's Not Too Late....

I implore all of you who have made up their minds to rethink their position and look at the reality of what is really happening to our country.  Let's look at the situation with a little clarity and bit more logic then we have been doing, let's take the emotion out of the equation and move toward rational thought and action.

Of the three candidates, not one is without serious issues.  Not one has a clear mandate to lead our country.  Beyond the simple Democrat or Republican issue, which of the three is really situated to be a true leader?  Is McCain the man of the hour, the person ready to take the reigns and guide us in a new direction?  Is Hillary the woman that we should be clamoring to support?  Or is Obama the great hope for America?  The answer is NO.  Not one of these self proclaimed saviors fits the bill of even a lack luster leader.  Why are we so anxious to elect the most mediocre and the least prepared?

A true leader brings the people together and creates common ground while caressing the differences toward his or hers ideals and goals.  The three we have to choose from are all reactionary in their approaches and offer nothing in the way of leadership.  There is no vision, there is no honesty and there is no integrity.  The blame for this falls directly on our shoulders and our inability to stand up for what is best for us.  We would rather associate with the average perhaps it makes us feel superior.  But with the average comes the mediocre and with the mediocre comes the inability to move beyond with creative and effective solutions.  

We need to be searching and promoting a LEADER not just someone who wants the Job.  Hell I want the Job, but that does not qualify me to lead.  I'm so tired of the excuses of so many that promote Hillary or Obama or McCain with the empty platitudes of change.  Nothing will change with these three; nothing will be accomplished but a continuation of the same.  Perhaps it is time for a third party option but then again only if that option contains a "real" leader, someone who most Americans can support.

Obama only needs 283 more delegates to win the nomination.  Hillary needs 400 or more.  Who is the loser now???

Re: It's Not Too Late....

and so you stick to the mantra of Obama, Obama, regardless of what and who he is?  Think Man, get up and do something for yourself, think of the country and your family....

I did rethink it

Do you really expect black America to be happy about White America rejecting Obama because of his association with Black America. You better look past the polls and start thinking about how pissed black people gonna be. Oh yeah your a Hillary supporter you dont care about the black vote since your not getting most of it.

I guess this whole campaign black people were not getting any respect since they did not vote for the white person. It was nice to have black pundits for the special occasion. Funny I wonder where they will go if Obama loses. Back to the whites i guess.

The black church is the enemy now, it used to be apart of the Democratic get out the vote machine. Apparently blacks are leading a afrocentric seperatist movment they up until now have been unaware of. I guess black people are too anti-American, loud, angry, suspicious and ungrateful.

Obama is trying to please the white mainstream lets see where it gets him. If no where then black people who have been biting there tongue (except Wright) dont really have much stake in this process, we are just spectators not true participants since we are not wanted anyway.

Re: It's Not Too Late....

I would like to see a discussion on what "leadership" really means - a visionary?, a team builder?, someone who can get things done?, a peacemaker? - or will we just "know one when we see one"?
