Nearly every admonishment of Obama these days includes some call for the candidate to cut to the chase. Simplify the speeches, they say. Chop down the answers into blurbs. But what all these freelance campaign managers miss is this: Barack doesn't think that way. He's not a refrigerator magnet guy.
"It's sad that 11 % of US voters wouldn't even consider voting for a woman but a majority would never vote for an atheist. Although 92% would vote for a Jew, the question of voting for a Muslim is not even asked!"
For the first time in two decades, the born-again vote (a key segment of the evangelical vote) is moving toward Democrats instead of Republicans. These Americans give Obama a 12-point lead, 43 percent to 31 percent.
Fact is, evangelical women make up one out of every five women having abortions. And the true number is certainly higher than that because many evangelicals aren't going to claim their faith on abortion clinic forms.
I favor libertarian stands on civil liberties and limited government, so I eagerly read the Libertarian Party emails. Yet I base my view of reality on logic and evidence. Sadly, I'm not seeing much of either from the Barr campaign.
