Obama is my man!

That's my new motto. I attended an organizational meeting on Tuesday night and I tell ya', the more I hear, the more excited I get about the possibility of having a strong leader again. I've said it before, it does not matter if you love him or hate him, he makes you think... if you listen. The problem I continue to see amongst Republicans is that they refuse to listen. I have deliberately sought out a Republican to support and in doing so have listened to parts of their speeches and read their opinions. There's nothing scary about using your head and imagining the possibilities. At each meeting the subject of Obama being a hope monger comes up. There is nothing wrong with hope. If you listen to him, it will not hurt. I promise.

The new ad running in Iowa is about hope and faith. I challenge you to watch it. When I ask my friends to come to the meetings I say "We won't make you drink the Kool-aid." Same applies here. I'm not asking you to buy what I am selling. I just want you to hear the message. We are the United States of America and we've been separated too damn long. We need healing and I happen to think Senator Obama can lead us to that end.

As for his wife, she recently explained that she really doesn't have time to put on a lot of makeup and oh, how I can relate to that! Most working moms don't make that a priority and I admire Michelle for continuing to keep her priorities in the right order. It would be so refreshing to have such down to earth people in the White House.

If you live in Iowa and haven't signed a support card yet and wish to, you can do so here. If you are in Decatur County or any county near me, please sign up so we can show that there is a lot of support for the Senator in southern Iowa. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to ask me. I plan to share a lot more about him and his policies here in the future and I really do welcome all reasonable debate.
