    BARACK 08

    GET OUT AND VOTE !

  • ellie

    Jennifer Hudson your still in my prayers. I pray to God your nephew comes home safely. OMG I can’t even imagine what your going through, but you and your family has lots of friends and a lot of support daily in our prayers!

    That was so nice of him to reach out to Jennifer Hudson and her family…

    Obama-Biden 08!

  • margaret

    Sarah Palin has more executive experience than Barack Obama. I am not scared of a Sarah Palin Presidency. She would be terrific. Unlike this freak who wants to take our hard-earned money and give it to welfare people to spend it on drugs, cigarettes and booze.

  • karissa

    Jared, are you going to start a post about how John McCain and Sarah Palin urge Americans to pray to satan that her newphew isn’t found?

  • jane

    You pick on John McCain, btw I saw the interview and he did not forget. Sorry to call you out on your lie. Lets talk about gafftastic Joe Biden who says there is going to be a international crisis if nobama is elected. Now that is a great VP. How about Joe Biden saying the word “jobs” is a 3 letter word. Or got the wrong President during the Great Depression and that there was TV back then when there was NOT. The man is a flake. He is almost as old as John McCain. Biden also said that nobama was not ready to be President. I wonder what wonderful thing obama could have done in the few short months since he said that. Oh yea it was picking him for VP.

  • Anon

    I feel more comfortable with a President who has lived in a neighborhood, worked with people in a community who aren’t rich and he can related when troubles and problems happen to people. Yes, Jennifer Hudson is a famous star. But it sounded like her mother and her family stayed right there in Chicago, in the ‘hood, and were dealing with everyday problems. Barack seems like he really understands that stuff. There’s everyday tragedies in every day people’s lives and he realizes that in a way somebody like McCain doesn’t. Plus McCain is just way too old to be president. He had cancer four different times. And that lady from Alaska is really not only too stupid, but I cannot stand the sound of her voice. It would be horrible to have to listen to her for four years.

  • joe

    This is nice and all but we already know to keep JH in our prayers. Using a tragedy isn’t a cool thing to do.

  • LOVE IT

    he has such a good heart god bless him and his family

  • Tiffani

    That’s so true people. Don’t forget to pray for Jennifer Hudson her ordeal is not over yet. That precious little boy needs to be returned safely. Please pray people.

  • Michell

    Prayers to the Hudson family

    Where’s Obama when another families mother/brother are murder, why just the Hudson family because she’s famous or because she’s from the Chicago area? He wants to talk about fair doesn’t seem to fair to me.

  • eddie jones

    pray? You should all get ready for this to come to your town. with chicagos gun control combined with it’s crime and the gun control agenda barack has, everyones going to be grabbing their ankles and surrendering to the criminals since they will be the only ones with guns in the country.

    wake up america, barack wants your guns, and he’s bringing chicago-style shootings to your town.

  • Ann

    My prayers go to Hudson’s Family. But whatever Obama. Your only saying this cause you are a candidate to be president. And if you weren’t you would not even care. I’m not voting for Obama cause he will run us dry. He’s a liar and he thinks he’s GOD. I’m sorry but my opinion.

  • dialectic

    they found a body of a seven yr old boy today in a vehicle matching the one in the Amber Alert.they havent confirmed it yet …… just so fucking sad….seven yrs old…how could someone be so cruel, so evil to kill a seven yr old..i dont understand…this world is a horribe place and i dont think its ever going to get better…

    as far as praying , what is that going to do?…if theres a god why are children being brutally murdered?

  • Mr. Smith

    I don’t care about that horrible singer Jennifer Hudson.

    She is fat and ugly with NO voice.

  • ew

    wow, nonfamous people deal with murder all the time. let’s pray for them too.

  • hailie

    wow– obama urging someone to be prayed for is really moving you people? how many people do you think are murdered/kidnapped in the us each yeah? he hasnt held a vigil for each one of them. here he is using a tragedy on someones family to seem compasionate and like a good christian man. yes, it is completly terrible what happened to j hudsons family, but has obama reached out to say, caylee anthonys grandparents as they are dealing with the loss of their grandaughter? has he reached out to every family who has ever lost any one in a terrible situation? NO, he goes after the one getting the most publicity…

    typing like that proves how ignorant an uneducated you are if you cant even form proper words. great to know the kind of people choosing who is in charge of our country? do you even know the issues? since you cant write im also sure you cant read, therefore, no you don’t.

    Barack the ‘wealth spreader”, telling a radio station in 2001 how the civic rights laws didn’t go for enough that it should have also included ‘ wealth redistribution’ , and that the courts are now not the place to get justice, that it will have to come from the legislature, if the ‘ middle class’ really believe the Obama is going to give then a “tax cut”, they are delusional, if they read his fine print which the main street media won’t do it’s all about giving to people who or a couple combined make lass then 35 thousand, McCain’s plan of more then doubling the child benefit to 7000 dollars per child is what will help the middle class, Obama giving a couple hundred bucks to to people over 35 thousand but less then a couple making combined 75 thousand (which is the real middle class) per year and giving thousands to people making less then 35 thousand , these policies is what will keep people in poverty so that democrats will always have a voting block for the next decade, because the minute a person goes over 40 thousand by either getting a better job, or a promotion, or over time their’ welfare checks” get cut substantially, so it pays to not go for that promotion, the less harder you work the more you get from the Barack the “wealth spreader” one of the reasons Obama say’s in Audacity of Hope that Clinton was a failure as President because he signed into law welfare reform, and that he didn’t push harder for liberal policies and he worked to much with the republican congress, that tells you what Obama real intentions will be with his ‘super majority democratic congress, if you you add up all of Obama’s programs and his adding to entitlements like medicare and Medicaid it is 4.3 trillion dollars, with America already going broke already 53 trillion in unfunded liabilities, not only will Obama not give a “tax cut ” to the middle class, but to even attempt to pay for his programs he will have to raise their taxes and that’s after he punished the rich, taxed as much as possible the upper middle class and destroyed the small business.

    Well, Obama is a presidential candidate, but how do you know that he did not hear about Hudson’s tragedy and feel really badly about it?
    Your word sound mightily stupid.

    You’d better not carry so much hatred, bc Obama may be your next president. Show some respect!!!

  • Algerian Girl

    Im still in shock with the death and the way of death of this 7 years old child, it’s beyond the horror ,so awful , may her mother, borther and this baby rip ,all my condolesence to her family .

    Hope that Obama wins,good luck to him .

  • obamaisracist

    Why didn’t Obama publically announce his condolences for Anne Pressley the anchor who was beaten and murdered. Is Obama a racist? Only offering condolences to blacks?

  • MissOlive

    you guys, you need to listen to me!!! I live in social countries and they suck!!! people adore america cuz it is not social; however, barack freak obama wants you all to give him yr powers to share what ya got! it is stupid and manipulative!wise up people, y’r smart i know that! he is a bad, bad choice! You go Sarah!!!

  • blah

    Miss Olive, Barack Obama is an American. Americans are smart. We don’t have to fear our leaders like you do. When they do much wrong, we get them ousted from office. Simple.

  • sickofit

    This is crazy. We have to pray for Hudson? What will we have to do next? Give my income to someone from ghetto because it is mandatory. While Hudson situation is sad, millions of people live with troubles. Why is she better? Ok, it was mentioned on a TV 1,2,3,4 times…but i AM GETTING SICK of it by the 1000th time around. Media is racing to call her Oscar winner, talented. Nowdays Oscars are not given for talents, but for political reasons. I am sorry but this girl is glammed up ghetto. And while privately politicians can pray or donate, they should not mention it publicly.
