Barack Obama Covers Rolling Stone

Barack Obama Covers Rolling Stone

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama takes the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Here are some of the interview’s highlights:

Tell me your reaction when you first heard that he had picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. I didn’t know her, so it was a surprise decision. Look, you have to give them credit: It obviously energized the conservative wing of the party. And that’s worth something in politics.

Weren’t you shocked, at least a little, by the choice of someone with no real experience on the national stage? As I said, we didn’t know her, so we were surprised. It wasn’t anticipated.

Looking back over the past eight years, what’s the thing that Bush screwed up the worst? I think Iraq has to rank number one. Although the economy and his failure, utterly, to anticipate the dangers of such a highly leveraged Wall Street, combined with such a highly leveraged federal government, combined with such highly leveraged consumers, at a time when we knew that baby boomers are about to retire and we need to start storing the acorns for the winter — it’s breathtaking. The level of irresponsibility that’s taken place over the last eight years is breathtaking.

well that’s unflattering. he’s neva gona live that down with the young population. hehe

ugh i’m so sick of this man.
he’s not even a man. he’s a despicable example of a citizen of the u.s.
he’s friends with terrorists, wants to make congress bigger when it needs to downsize, wants to make us pay higher taxes, give poor people a good chunk of money that comes out of the wealthy/ middle class’s wallets, voted 4 times to KILL BABIES that survive abortion, ect.
this man is full of lies!! he won’t do anything for us. The only “change” he is proposing is the change he is gonna take out my parents wallets and give to some person who sits on their butt all day long.
my parents actually WORK for their money and don’t wait for it to be handed to them, or depend on welfare.
ladies and gentleman, Barack Obama ^

there you have it.
what an unattractive picture too. He shouldn’t be talking- he looks like the pig with lipstick now.
ignorant fool is all he is.

NOBAMA!

mccain/palin 08

and i’m glad we have SMART people like rebecca because we all know good looks make good presidents.

“I’m not George Bush..if you want to run against George Bush,
you should’ve run against him 4 yrs agp” YES!

McCain is a different man..I love him.
bottom line..Democrats ALWAYS raise taxes.

poor Joe the plumber who will be forced to “spread his hard
earned wealth”

McCain/Palin ’08 he is NOT Geirge Bush.

Stella you are saying that Obama has no experience, but does Pailin has a lot of experience?
