Senator Obama has become very tentative about courage and right and wrong. Rev. Jackson may have been correct about the man. Is it because he is going to be the first black President that he lacks the courage to do right instead of being expedient? Why has he taken such a sharp turn to the right and down Wall Street?

I don't believe this bill is constitutional, and I believe it will eventually be overturned. Only 9 percent of the electorate think Congress is doing their job, and it is about time we kicked all of them out, regardless of party, who voted for this bill. I think the public is ready to kick all of them out on general principles. Obama is going to have some serious problems with the Democratic base on this vote, and his position on immigration reform will hurt him with conservative voters on the right. Apparently Obama needs to take some courses on cultural sensitivity so he can deal with African-Americans as well as the white community. This is the craziest election in American History.
