Get a piece of cardboard like you find on a notebook or folder and cut out a stencil.

Then just hold it up and shoot....that's what I did around here.

They look really good.

I'm just sick of him.
I hear people talk at cafes about how they can't believe the polls, they can't believe his popularity, etc. I also hear horrible things about how they have pools at work on how long he'll last before some boogar munching moron makes an attempt on his life.
It's scary. I don't want him in office as much as anybody, and it sickens me how low the Democrats are willing to stoop to steal an election, but to think that people are willing to place bets on how long he would last? :( What have we come to?

as far as the assasintation factor i think that would be VERY bad for us. Think about it, Obama(very bad) goes then we have Biden(very very bad) then if he goes we have...........................Pelosi(Hell)

It would be awful difficult to assasinate a president nowadays. Hinkley was very lucky on his attempt on Reagan, but the SS has learned to be a lot more vigilant and keep crowds at a greater distance.

It was a long time between Lincoln and Kennedy and a long till Regan. The world and most all the US was different then. Today, with the wackos and sickos out there, an assasination attempt or completion I think is possible. I'm sure extra measures are all ready in place. I know I wouldn't want to be on his protection team right now.

Just for a reality check, if he were president and were killed, you would (a) end up with President Biden or President Pelosi, depending on their status, and (b) Statues of the guy would grow faster than crab grass.

You think this guy has weird followers NOW? Imagine them worshipping a dead messiah. No thanks, I'd wish him health if he were elected. We don't need the consiquences of a martyred socialist. His face is already on flags and t-shirts, if he's elected let him run a term, damage the nation, and vote him out 4 years later.

My .02.

I agree...and believe me, if he wins, my first phone call is going to be to the RNC and tell them the hell with waiting, lets start campaigning now for 2012.

But as to the original topic, those ads drive me nuts too :)

I'm with ya mickey. If McCain has proven anything, it's that the heart and soul of the rep party is/was the conservative base. If he McCain wins, great, if not, get someone on the ticket who can galvanize voters.

Obama Ads Invade Video Games
Tuesday , October 14, 2008



ADVERTISEMENT
The Barack Obama presidential campaign is EVERYWHERE.

Drivers of high-performance racing cars were a bit surprised over the weekend to spot roadside billboards with the Illinois senator's familiar face on them and the message "Early Voting Has Begun. VoteForChange.com."

Not unusual, you say? Well, these were virtual billboards, on imaginary roads, driven by Xbox 360 players in an online version of the popular racing video game "Burnout Paradise."

Game maker Electronic Arts confirmed Monday that the Obama campaign ads were the real deal.

"Like most television, radio and print outlets, we accept advertising from credible political candidates," EA spokeswoman Holly Rockwood told the tech blog GigaOm. "Like political spots on the television networks, these ads do not reflect the political policies of EA or the opinions of its development teams."

Comments from gamers were mixed.

"The McCain campaign will respond by buying ads at Pong consoles nationwide," joked one on the car blog Jalopnik.

"You can't even PAY for a video game without being pummeled with ads," complained another.

"Wait ... can't you drive through the billboards in Burnout?" asked a third.

I was driving around fresno today and saw a storefront with a huge bamanation banner. But My blood pressure went down a bit when I saw a dealership with a McCain Palin 12' x 40' billboard about a block away.

Paying to see Obama ads? I am not buying a computer game until long after the election! I would be mad as hell! If they allowed returns I would return it, if not - its target practice.
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

The college kids are enthralled with Obama's smooth talk. They look at him as though he's a prophet from God. I don't get it. :wall:

They have no clue about how he's going to take this country far, far down the road of socialism and state control.

The one good thing about a Democratic WH and Congress is that they will be fully accountable for the crap they cause (they won't be able to point fingers at anyone but themselves). That being said, my fear is that there are too many voters who will be too stupid to see all of the carnage...or that the Democrats caused the carnage.

When the inevitable crap hits the fan...whether it's another terrorist attack, a Russian invasion of the Ukraine, or Israel bombing Iran...it will be interesting to see how the youngster Obama reacts. I mean, there's nothing we can do...but watch and get some perverse pleasure out of watching Obama under a blistering, white-hot spotlight.

Oh yeah man...like Obama. He's so kewl. He's like for change man. He wants to change everything man. He's into Hope and Change and Hope and..stuff. Yeah man. Obama's the man. He's the dood, man.
What does he stand for though?
Change, man. And Hope.
Change for what? Hope for what?
Well, you know. Change. Hope.
Change from what? Hope for what?
Well, you know. Change. From...what is. Hope. For a better...is. You know man.
No. I don't. I mean, can you tell me EXACTLY what it is Obama wants to CHANGE?
No.
Then why would you support him?
B'cuz he ain't Bush man.
Bush isn't running again. He can't. He's already served 8 years. Otherwise, I'd vote for his old wrinkled ass again. So, tell me, if you can, why would you vote for Obama? He wants to raise taxes, upset stability in the middle east and allow the terrorist regime to take over Iraq allowing them to get a foothold in a fledgling democracy and turn it into a theocracy, he's already claimed in his book that if that happened, he would side with the Muslims, he wants to initiate a universal healthcare system and bankrupt our economy which he already did his part in destabilizing, he wants to initiate a new tax system that taxes corporations which will in turn pass these taxes on to YOU by increasing the price on goods and services that you have to purchase, he wants to limit the amount of domestic oil that we can produce thereby driving UP the price of oil and gas even higher than it already is thereby causing the price of ALL goods and services to go up even more, and yet you SUPPORT him? Is THAT the CHANGE you're talking about??

Ummm....yeah? I think so. What was the question?
Do you even go to this college?
Yeah. I live in that dorm right there.
Let me guess. Liberal arts major.
Yeah. How'd you guess?
Just lucky. Must be your first class of the day. It's almost noon...
