Obama's real only strength in this campaign is that he opposed the Iraq war?

June 20, 2019 / By Amanda Question:
Since he and Hillary have voting records that are 95% similar, isnt it highly probable that Barack himself would have voted for the Iraq war also had he been a senator at the time, and privy to the intel that congress had??
Obama spoke out against the war back in 2002, but also made several statements saying he is really unsure how he would have voted on it, and that he found it hard to disagree with George Bush's position at that time
Isnt it completely obvious by now that Obama is a smooth con man who is deftly playing both sides of the fence to fit his political needs and get votes?
Zimbabwe O-Bot: He also said that his positions was the same as GW Bush's at the time! You just have selective hearing I think..
Alien: Here you go Mr drooling O-bot
Obama in July 2004: 'There’s not much of a difference between my position and George Bush’s position [on Iraq] at this stage.' In a meeting with Chicago Tribune reporters at the Democratic National Convention, Obama said, “On Iraq, on paper, there's not as much difference, I think, between the Bush administration and a Kerry administration as there would have been a year ago. […] There's not much of a difference between my position and George Bush's position at this stage. The difference, in my mind, is who's in a position to execute.” [Chicago Tribune, 07/27/04]
Obama on 2002 Iraq resolution vote: 'What would I have done? I don't know:' "When asked about Senators Kerry and Edwards' votes on the Iraq war, Obama said, "I'm not privy to Senate intelligence reports," Mr. Obama said. "What would I have done? I don't know. What I know is that from my vantage point the case was not made." [New York Times, 07/26/04]
Sen. Obama Promised To Oppose Ira
But until he ran for president, Sen. Obama supported every funding bill for Iraq. [2005 Vote # 117, HR1268, 5/10/05; 2005 Vote # 326, S1042, 11/15/05; 2006 Vote # 112, HR4939, 5/4/06; 2006 Vote # 239; 2006 Vote # 186, S2766, 6/22/06, HR5631, 9/7/06]

His real strength is his ability to pull a 21st century Elmer Gentry on so many people. They have decided to ignore the fact that he is an America hating racist ex-crackhead Marxist.

voting present is not opposing something. if someone asks you: are you pro-choice or pro-life and you say present what does this mean are you for or against it. he took the cowards way out so that he could see which way the wind blew if for some reason the war had worked he would have said he wasn't against it and if it didn't like hes doing now then he could have said he didn't agree. where was obama when the anti-war protesters came out as soon as bush declared war there were marches and tons of groups but u see then it wasn't going to be politically beneficial to critize the war. really he did not vote against it so he should just shut up now and admit he was a coward

One strength is that he's intelligent. McCain barely graduated from college, can't keep Sunni and Shite straight, puts Pakistan next to Iraq, etc.
Another is that Obama doesn't want to continue the failed Bush policies, but has new ideas, McCain's voting record is 95+% with Bush. If you want four more years of Bush, vote for McCain.

It doesnt' matter what he might have done, we know what he did do, and that is speak out against it when it was very politically risky to do so, when he was running for office. His opposition could easily have cost him his election. He had the foresight to know the war was wrong when most Democrats rolled over.

His strength is it won't be business as usual...the white house needs a good cleaning and not back to a Clinton...they were as bad as The Worst President ever.

What a delusional post. He spoke out against the war before it happened, back when one was branded unpatriotic for doing so. Talk about putting your nuts on the line.
Your post is hollow.

It would be in the best interest of the country, to view this "action" with a high
degree of "suspicion". 3 YEARS and only now Obama becomes concerned,
about enforcing Laws he signed off on ? And Bernanke being in attendance,
could be an ominous sign as well. Worst case scenario of course, would be the
devaluation of the Dollar ( after all, the Fed Reserve has been printing 85 BILLION
a month in worthless paper, with 40% of it for INTEREST only ).
