Obama goes around talking about "change", but he voted the Democrat party line on every vote... at least the few that he didn't just mindlessly vote "present". His entire "Blueprint for Change" is nothing but one "throw money at the problem" solution after another. His domestic policies come straight out The Communist Manifesto. None of his ideas are anything new, they are the same old Class Warfare Rhetoric crap that the liberals have been halucinating over since the bong laden 60s. So the question is, does he have the ability to think for himself, or is he the same old crap sandwich with a new marketing plan and packaging?

Why are you slandering Obama? Are you a McCain supporter? Because McCain is a blatant liar. Really, does McCain think for himself? He asked Palin to join when he didn't know her, who set it up? And if he does, well he lies....so you're going to vote that into office instead?

Spoken like a true Obamabot. I asked a question but since you would rather not answer the question you just spewed on about other people. and btw, no I'm not a McCain supporter. But you don't really care do you.

I do care if you are or not actually. And it was the phrasing and the question you asked that delivered the response. Of course Obama can think for himself. He is a father, a husband, a Senator, a man. He obviously had to think to decide to run for president He obviously had to think (and feel) to ask Michelle to marry him... and to stay married to her... He obviously had to think when he decided to run for Senate, he had to think when he was going to school at Columbia and Harvard... He had to think when responding to questions at the debates... He doesn't resort to lies or mud slinging, instead he points out the facts and track records.... On another note, John McCain having his wife out on the campaign, talking about Obama being in her shoes and voting against the troops funds? McCain voted the same way. Your question shows what you think about Obama, and blinders would keep you from seeing the truth.

Obama merely had to memorize the party line to give his answers in debates. Nothing about his campaign shows any ability for original thought. All your other examples shows is that he has a brain. Of course he has a brain, but all mindless sheep have a brain. The ability to think for oneself is much more difficult.. and apparently too difficult for Obama.

Well the liberals don't care whether he is a slave to his party because they think their party is perfect. They are so blinded that they don't realize the FACT that our economy's downward spiral started immediately after democrats gained the majority in the house and senate. For the 6 years prior to that our gas prices were around $2.20 per gallon.

Yeah, remember Pelosi promising that gas would be below $2/gal if she got to be speaker of the house? I bet democrats conveniently forget that lol

LIAR!!! She had a common sense plan to lower gas prices! When you look back it was the most clever promise she made as all one needs do is look at her lack of common sense to understand why the plan was never implemented. FYI, the Liar accusation was just because I've been amused lately by a certain liberal who screams liar every time someone disagrees with him and his blog.

I'd say that he knows how to think, taste and smell the corrosion that has been going on in our government and wants to clean it up, Bravo, to him! On the other hand, McSane is dabbling around just like he did in 'Nam and trying to make everything "his doing" Par for the course! He did help create Americas biggest woes of the last 8 years!

If you check the time lines you'd see that our biggest woes, outside of the war, were in the last two years after eh democrats got the majority in the house and senate. That includes gas prices.

Clean it up? He has collected more money from lobbyists and special interests in his few years in the Senate than most have collected in a decade!!

It may not be possible for an independent thinker to rise to the top of the democratic party. At least not one as inexperienced as 0bama. So, no, 0bama has not learned to think for himself.

True, it doesn't seem like individual thought is encouraged by the DNC

Of course not. We've seen how they look at people like Joe Lieberman and Bill Clinton for exhibiting independent thought. It's actually frightening how much people on mylot hate Bill for not supporting Obama enough.
