You frame your reasoning in absurd terms (which is your prerogative). it's like me asking - defend if you know why Palin shouln't deserve her high approval ratings as Governor?

In other words, no, you can't defend her. Have you even listened to those interviews? I have yet to hear any defense of her anywhere and clearly with good reason -- she's indefensible.

You apply double standards to your own arguments which you fail to realise: for example - let's face it, Obama chose Biden because that increased his odds of winning too. And if you thought that disqualified McCain, then Obama too is disqualified (by your own "reasoning").

Well, that's a willful misrepresentation of an argument if ever I heard one. Real life is nuanced. There is more than one aspect to any given argument. Yes, Biden helps Obama get elected, but not as much as Clinton would have. You know this. You argued it yourself when Obama selected Biden. You're flying all over the map with scattershot attacks, much like the McCain campaign in recent weeks.

Changing positions in itself isn't particularly bad - but Obama changes position - "moving further and further to the right"

Heh. You claim Obama is moving to the right. McCain claims that Obama is a liberal. What a lovely dance, back and forth.


Well, I'll give you the last word and then bow out. It's lunch time and then back to work for me.

*laughs* You're all over the place, as I hope I have shown.

It's actually not mutually exclusive that obama is a liberal and has moved to the right. He was so far to the left in the first place, did you not know?

The onus is really on you, as you're promoting Obama. I take issue with your "reasons" that's all, and therefore feel they ought to be challenged.

By the way, I note you consistently mis-spell "Barack" - one "r" not two - see his web site. At least get your man's name right!
