did he say sugar tits? No. So obviously if you take issues with "sweetie', then sweetie, those were your issues to begin with. It seems our election of trivialities has not improved one bit. Obama is a Muslim. Obama is a black militant. Now he looks down on women. This is where we are taking where we are going with our country.

As a country we have come to fear Muslims; vicious elements have tried to peg (oops almost typed president) Barack Obama as being one. First of all religion should never play a part in anything to do with our government. Although we do have " In God We Trust" imprinted on our currency, we are not a religious nation. The Obama went to a madrassa story got coverage it was an essential false misleading statement.( I won't waste time trying to prove or disprove it). The implication is that being a Muslim is bad. I denegrates the small minority in this country. It discriminates against Americans who have the right to worship as they please. This was acknowledged in our bill of rights. It lessens who we are.

The story sank further during the Reverend Wright Scandal. For weeks on end every person I encountered was going off on 12 seconds worth of sound bytes. "Did he really say Goddamn?" That was the only thing major news organizations covered. "e shouldn't be elected because of this". This was said to me on numerous occasions. ( Iam vocal about my support.)This story played while the economy sank into the abyss.

So now when asked a question about the Auto-Industry while in the motor city. He says "Hold on Sweetie we will do a press avail". This becomes mysogny. He vigorously supported pro-choice platforms. Yet, he does respect women. Where has our sense gone?

Using a term of endearment of familiarity or any other phrase to personalize, does not make a the problems we face better. The problems this country is faced with is greater than anyones religious beliefs. The church someone attends does not influence their decision making process. Ask George W Bush.
Find better reasons to include or exclude your candidate. Be bigger than the smallness of your passions. The more often we make that choice the better the choice we will have to make.
