I have very slow dial up, it takes too long to view a video. So I am requesting a transcript where ever possible so I can enjoy the speeches too. :)

All I can say is WOW! Just when you think his stump may be getting a little jaded, he blows you away with a speech like this.

I removed Loki's comment due to hateful attacks not based on facts. I will not tolerate such commentary, regardless of whether it's aimed at Sen. Clinton or Sen. Obama.

Not Barack Obama, there is nothing wrong saying that, people like to hear what they want, How much more do you want to change facts.. deleting , does not change the truth,, nore does the Media Propaganda,, barack obama said that him self,, but remember it does go both way,, not just barack Obama,,can try to spin the media, when he does it, its ok but when Hilary does it, Oh no, Truth is still the truth, If Barack wins the primary all 2/3 thirds of Hilary Voter wil not vote, or vote for McCain, so say all you want media reported that also.. Remember this Barack Obama can run over person and leave the scene of the crimes just like Haley Berry ,, had half you guy will still Vote for him,,,

America Gave you OJ he free what more do you want, Now you want some kind of afirmative action situation to get Barack Obama in side the presidency,

Hi Cris:

I agree that you should delete a comment if and when it they are offensive or fabrications. I am not sure that Loki’s comment did that. However, that is a judgment call and this is your Blog.
I don’t think that Loki represent HRC’s supporters. She represents fringe elements that support any of the candidates based on their own personal bias not the issues.
I support BO not because HRC is not a good candidate based on the issues but because I think he has a better chance of accomplishing his goals. Another big issue for me is the fact he is truly trying to be the candidate of the people instead of multi-national corporations. However, if she becomes the candidate in a fair and transparent manner I would gladly support her. Any democrat, let alone HRC, will be a better candidate than any Republican.
Any so called HRC or BO supporters who claim that unless their candidate wins they will support JM are either idiots with whatever bias they have or are really not choosing a candidate based on the issues.

Blogging is to get the word out, its not to make it us and then, Like in Omama fancy speech you have to over come,your differences good words. To bad people in this chat room don't see it that way, This is a blog page on a websites being public, yet you want to Delete to hide who Obama is, if you believe in him, his merits stand on his own, Even now your blogs are being shared with other blogging pages including the deletion of Fact statements, yet Chris this is your blog, Does not mean you can Hide the fact of what Barack Obama does.
You call it hateful attack, when someone talks about the facts of what of Barack Obama does, if you need to see the fact or the videos Of Micheal Obama, will not change your mind, Yet again Chris, You claim you will not tolerate negative comments from Hilary or Obama yet there been over of Dozen False Negative comments on Hilary Clinton,
There for I will still state the truth,, go to CNN or Msnbc you can pull the files, Barack Obama supporter states if Barack Obama lose's the primary all barack Obama supporter will vote for McCain, this was live and on many news station, And in a interview with Micheal Obama , she did state, if her husband does not win she will not back the democratic party, Just like she said on TV she never been proud of this country, until her husband ran for election, I guess that is not fact also, millions also seen that, At the end of my name say PV that is my name,,
P Valenzuela, yes I am not white, at all, I am Hispanic, so think
blogs are for people giving there opinions, Remember this is America, not Cuba, then again your use telling you what you can say or not say, that is why you, think you have so much power on your little propaganda Page,, I am belittling it now because you lost all credability on your views, chris blog means people sharing there opinions, not forcing one, Your losing your credability Chris,
THINK before listening to your little followers ,

Hello everyone.

To Loki: Given your response to my deletion of your comment, I would like to state that the reason it was deleted was primarily because you referred to *Michelle* Obama as a "racist." Further, you went on to claim that Michelle Obama said she would leave the Democratic party if Sen. Obama did not win - this is false and unsubstantiated.

You may feel that these types of accusations are acceptable, but I do not. You are certainly welcome to continue posting - there are many criticisms you can make about Sen. Obama that *are* based on facts - but I cannot allow hateful language or unsubstantiated attacks on this message board.

Finally, if there are any news articles you can point to (please provide a link) that back up your claims (e.g. that Michelle Obama is a racist, or that she will leave the Dem. Party), I will gladly post them.

Thank you,
- Cris

Cris:

I don't believe Loki is who she says she is. The broken english does not go with some of the sayings etc.. that come from someone with a better understanding of english.

My guess is she is here to distract you from the good work you are doing. Ignore or delete her comments. Don't waste your precious time responding

Read what is said chris.. keep believing your bloggers like haili
That is your choice,,You know what is true and what is not true,
Listen to Haili, and believe Barack going to still win with a divided party, We both know your smart than that, Or not , you can keep blogging the truth,, To me sounds like alot of your blogger are afraid of the truth,
When they can see these videos for them self,
Everyone keep believing,, Republicans have full support, and the democrats are divided now more now less democratic party divided down the middle, , YOU People think Barack is still going to win,, with a split democratic party,, Education is what Haili needs,, like I said to you before,, the power is up to you, to view the facts that are there, yet know ones want to find out Videos don't lie, and yet still convince, I do believe Hilary was Or best shot, but now No one going to win,, except McCain, And I challenge anyone in her to prove other wise,
Hilary was are only shot she can win all the big states ,,, barack won more little states,, Barack obama never won a big state, or you going to say the new was wrong about that to.

Loki said...

Why are the blogger on here so afraid of fact, don't you know you all can find this out for you selfs,, with Micheal Obama and everything by watching it on CNN and going to Msnbc, Larry king, look at all the Videos interview,, No one in here want to do it, they like to love in there own little world, on what the truth is,, Or better yet or someone tell them,, How the world is who they should vote for,,

Cris said...

Hello again.

Loki, you are welcome to continue posting if you feel that is an effective use of your time. I do not have the time to personally rebut your each of your statements, so I hope the greater population out there understands when things are being distorted.

However, I stand firm in what I said earlier: that any comments containing attacks like "closet racists" will be deleted (as you can see above).

Thank you,
- Cris
