Obama Republicans

There seems to be a gowing phenomenon of disaffected Republicans joining the Obama camp. There are two types of Obama Republicans that are emerging in the wake of the inevidable nomination of John McCain.

The first group of Obama Republicans are the right-wing talk show crowd who can't stomach McCain's legislative resume. These are people who want to send the GOP out into the wilderness for 2-4 years so that it can do some soul searching. These people seem to be taking on Obama as their "lesser of evils" candidate. These people hate John McCain, but they despise the Clintons. I think they can even bring themselves to find something inspiring about Obama, despite the fact that he is slightly to the left of Hillary Clinton.

The second group of Obama Republicans are the people of the party who feel disenfranchised by GOP policy for the past 15 years. These are the "post-partisan" group, who aren't looking for ideological discipline, but rather pragmatic solutions to our problems. What these people see in Obama is what many Democrats see, a fresh face with new ideas.

OBAMA IS THE MOST ELECTABLE CANDIDATE.
The War can not be won militarily, it takes diplomacy.Obama has the ability and desire to settle differences by diplomacy. He will take such avenues when dealing with Middle East situations. When appropriate.

I don't believe anyone can consider Hillary Clinton, anything close to diplomatic. Not One Arab leader will listen, or take part In negotiations with her.

Bush, McCain, and Clinton will only make demands, and take unecessary military action, as has been witnessed by the Iraq War, and our losses of life, treasures, and reputation in the world. Regrettably, all three led us into the Quagmire in Iraq, and have no idea of how to end it.

Neither cared about an exit plan at the time, which now adds to their dilema.

Our economy has been poured down the drain with this leadership. All other issues have been off the table. A 10 trillion dollar debt left behind for the next several generations.The responsibility for such is shared by all three.BUT no one admits any mistake.

We need change, and new leadership. Vote Obama, support change. Take back our COUNTRY.

Thank you for considering Obama. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

THE BOOK PROMOTES OBAMA, I VOLUNTEER MY TIME.

AFTER 35 YEARS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, I SEE THIS AS A CHANCE TO CHANGE THE CORRUPTION OF THE INSIDERS AND END THE SPECIAL INTEREST MONEY INFLUENCES.

The educated, informed, and employed vote for
Obama, according to all exit polls.
They also show that the uneducated, uninformed,
unemployed vote for Clinton.

The Obama Republicans have a website up: http://www.republicansforobama.org/

The web site looks nice, and it includes a blog. There also is a map for Obama Republicans to find like minded Republicans in their geogrpahical location. I would also suggest going to meetup.com and starting some sort of a group for fellow Obama Republicans. Through meetup.com you can organize and build support for Barack Obama.
