Voters respond to Obama on Abortion Reduction

posted by Mara Vanderslice

In tonight’s Presidential debate, Senator Obama emphasized his commitment to finding common ground by seeking to reduce the need and numbers of abortions.
 

What was amazing to watch was the incredibly favorable response from Uncommitted Ohio Voters on CNN.  Watch the voters positive response when Senator Obama emphasizes his approach on this difficult issue.

What’s interesting was the reaction of Republican viewers during that same period. Amazingly they disapproved of the proposals Obama made.
They know that if abortions are reduced abortion may no longer be an issue in electoral politics. If it is not an issue, it cannot be used by the GOP to motivate their base.
The GOP needs dead fetuses in order to get out their vote. Anything that makes for fewer dead fetuses harms the GOP GOTV efforts.

Obama was good last night. His attention he spoke about for the American people was mention a whole lot.The focus was talked about from Obama point of view is the Education for public schools and college for these loans. I am concerned for my college education for applying for some funding and it is difficult for me right now. There do need to be a change with these loans. I applaud him for bringing that up.These public schools for children he spoke about these charter schools in Washington DC.Something has to change.
I like that when he spoke about a higher salary for teachers.Teachers work in the classrooms for at least over 8 hrs and a stressful job.Dealing with these kids.They do deserved a higher salary. I know a lady who is a teacher and she agree of what Obama feel that teachers need to get paid a higher salary.
I really hope he wins. I don’t care about his passed.That is left behind. McCain campaign, saying Obama is a terrorist and saying kill him. That is a serious and hurting and people are sending out hateful racial notes against him. McCain campaign is negative and he could of said something like don’t say that to the people and they would of stop. They kept shouting it. That makes his campaign looks really bad.
McCain was sarcastic with his words kept interrupting Obama and would not let Obama finished.He was very offended every time and he kept looking down so he did not look at Obama in the face a lot.He did looked at Obama in the face.McCain was terrible last night.I was going to vote for him way in the beginning but I am voting for Obama.Health care he kept mentioning.I really hope Obama wins.I am so tired of these republicans winning these election.It’s time for a Democratic turned to win.I voted for Bush and I did not feel pleased for him of the things he did.

The abortion to me I am against it and I can’t speak for everybody.The abortion needs to be banned.Some women on their circumstance is different.Some women were raped by one of their family member and they rather aborted the child.I can’t speak for them.Unborn babies are murder everyday. Over 1,000 everyday and that is wrong.They are God given babies and precious.I may not agree with some things Obama said about that.He speaks about education,health care,for closures,retired a lot and I will vote for him.I hope he do wins and I will pray for his protection.

All this attention to the abortion issue misses the bigest story of the night–a story that too many watching the debate apparently failed to observe. Those who have eyes to see, take heed!
My friends, the big thing about last night’s debate is found in the following. Senators McCain was unusually friendly with Senator Obama. They eagerly shook hands at the beginning of the debate. McCain was so anxious to shake Obama’s hand he even skipped over shaking the hand of the moderator. Then they frequently expressly agreed with each other during the debate. Sure, they disagreed on a few “in house” issues. They looked at each other and smiled. They spoke directly to each other. Then at the conclusion of the debate they almost hugged each other and effusively expressed congratulations to each other on how well they had done.
They have been seen together a number of times in recent weeks, working together to try to help solve the problems confronting our country. They have been hanging out together more and more lately.
Now we all know that Senator Obama has been “paling around with terrorists.” Now, Senator McCain is paling around with Senator Obama. Thus, it follows that Senator McCain must be a terrorist too–just like Senator Obama is.
So which ever one wins the election in November, our next President will be a terrorist.
In other words, THE TERRORISTS HAVE WON!!!
And you thought the economy or abortion was our biggest problem.
