Last night on tv, someone was discussing doctors killing children during late term abortions. It was very horrible. To me, this certainly murder and child abuse. Obama has consistently supported late term abortions, as I understand what I have read. Do you think that someone who like supports murdering innocent children is qualified to be president?

I like how you've added a middle name, until now I didn't know he had a middle name. Now we can all associate him with a certain middle eastern dictator... I have no idea EXACTLY what Obama supports in terms of late term abortions; could you add some more information please? I'd like to make an informed decision and not one based on tabloid hate-mongering and ignorance.

Well on the basis of his views on late term abortions (which account for less than 1% of all abortions performed in the USA) I think he is quite reasonable. As for the rest of his campaign... one Democrat is the same as any other in my British eyes; they're all not Bush.

"And yes, Hussein is Obama's middle name." Seriously, what does that have to do with anything? Annie

Where did you get this information that Obama has "consistently supported late term abortion"? Under what circumstances? From all I've seen and read about Obama and any other Democrat for that matter what they support is a ban on late term abortions with an exception for cases when the life or health of the mother is at risk and also some very extreme cases where the baby will certainly be horribly deformed with no chance of any quality of life. I have to throw your question back at you with a slight change - do you think someone who supports allowing innocent women to die is qualified to be President? Annie

Why yes a person who is willing to look a problem and take a position is certainly qualified to be president. I would rather have this than a person as president who forgets for even one single minute that we are a SECULAR NATION guided by the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights rather than a theocracy guided by a ridiculous set of unproven and unfounded religous standards that do not apply to the entire population of this nation. This means that a born, living, breathing woman is of greater value than a unborn, not living, not breathing fetus. Less than 1% of all abortions performed are what you term as "late term abortions". Less than 1/10 of 1% are voluntary by the woman. They are performed to save the life of a already born, living, breathing woman. The only other time they are performed is if there is a medical reason that affects severely the quality of life of the unborn fetus. A unborn fetus is not a child! The stance of both Obama and Hillary are similar on this issue. The rights and life of the BORN Woman is greater than the rights of the unborn fetus.

Well said, Ivaldean. Though I'll say that a foetus IS living, it's simply dependant upon another living being to keep it alive.

I fear that the next 4 years are going to be really hard on everyone. Whomever makes it into office will, I predict, do some good things for awhile at least. And then the smoke-screen will be lifted and it's going to be hell on earth. I wish the law could be changed so that Arnold Swartzenager could run for office, even though he wasn't born here. I would vote for him because at this point I don't want any in office that are running right now. It made me sick to my stomach when I heard Obama himself advocate late term pregnancies. I didn't get the opinion from him that it was only to save the mother's life or other medical necessity. He made me think that he's okay with a late term abortion for any reason.

Obama makes me think that he thinks it is all right to crush the skull of a baby about to be born or tare the babies' legs and arms off to kill the baby. To me, this is murder and child abuse. These sort of actions should not be legal.

Arnie for President! We will be one step closer to the world of Demolition Man... wait, maybe that's not such a good thing. *ahem* Well, if someone believes, as some people do, that the soul is what makes a person more than an animal, and that a soul is gained with the first breath then killing something before it can breathe is not 'murdering' a human being. And before anyone gets all holier than thou on me, this idea is supported by scripture and was an early Jewish belief (still held by some, I think). Gen. 2:7 Job 33:4 Ezekial: 37:1-6 Not my beliefs, just throwing it out there. The definition of 'human being' is VERY, VERY subjective and quite difficult to 'prove' as different people believe different things about being human.

Obama is NOT qualified to be president for more reasons that just this one, but you are correct. He has supported this sort of thing. There are a lot more qualified people out there that should be president. Unfortunately, we are likely going to end up with Obama or Hilary, and NEITHER of them is going to be good for this country. At the same time, I don't think McCain would do very well either, but I know we are all screwed when Hilary or Obama takes office. The mess that "King Bush" has gotten us into is going to pale in comparison to where we are likely headed next...

Unfortunately, I am afraid that you are correct in everything that you have said here. we may be stuck with Obama for four years, unless we can impeach him.
