    Edwards gives long-awaited endorsement to Obama

    By CHUCK BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer 31 minutes ago

    Wonder why he waited so long? To make sure he endorsed a winner?

    You are probably right. I really liked Edwards and at the risk of coming across as a bigot I am gonna throw in my two cents. That man did not stand a chance the media all but ignored Edwards because of the publicity over the First viable female and black canididates they would bring ratings and Edwards not so much...

    I've always said, we are controlled by the sponsors of the Mass Media propaganda machine.

    And I've always said, it doesn't matter who is elected next,
    they are all puppets of the elite and corporations.

    It's been a long time since we had a real president. Maybe just because I was a kid, but it seems to me that real presidents were the roservelts and trumans and eisenhowers and jeffersons and people like that. I kind of lost it ever since nixon lied to us with a straight face and got caught, and from then on I can't see any president that can hold a candle to any of the real ones I mentioned above? Every election I find myself voting for the lesser of the evils. It's just not supposed to be that way. I like obama, but he makes a lot of promises we all know he will not be able to keep.
    I really do think they are mere puppets for the elite and the bankers and corporations. Big money controls who runs a successful campaign.
    sad.
