OBAMA SAID OBAMICANS!!


By SandiLincoln - Posted on 12 February 2008

Tonight, Feb 12, during his speech in Madison, Wisconsin, Obama used the word Obamicans! YOU GUYS, we are an actual demographic and we need to be so proud of ourselves and our candidate, Senator Barack Obama, because we epidomize change. Changing party's, changing our mind set, and changing our world. YOU GUYS ROCK!

OBAMA 08~We are the ones we were waiting for!

I admire everyone on this website for putting our countries best interest ahead of party loyalty. We face a long list of issues that the current crop of Republican candidates (and Hillary) have either not addressed or don't consider a priority. 

Ronald Reagan had his "Reagan Democrats", now Barack Obama has his "Obamacans".

Thank you.

I have the pleasure of being both!  (Am I just a rebel at heart??lol)  I was a registered Democrat until Reagan, and made an 11th hour decision to vote for him.  Nearing the end of his first term, I was so happy with where he was taking our nation, and so tired of being called a "Reagan Democrat", that I switched my party affiliation.  I've voted Republican since then.  Until Now!!  If Obama wins the nomination, I will recharge the activist I was in my youth, and do all that I can to help him get elected!!!

I AM AN OBAMACAN!!!!

 

SUZI~HOW EXCITING! I love your story!!! I am in Iowa, so if you ever want to go get rebellious, you are just the chick I'd love to hang out with! Reagan (1984) was  my first election. I was hooked until 2004. OH that was a hard one. I ended up voting for Bush, but only because I gave my vote to a young man going to Iraq. I asked him who I should vote for and he said BUSH. SO, I guess I voted for JOSH. This year, I hope to get my VOTE BACK and vote for my BARACK! Oh yeah, I hope and pray and PAY!!! It will be him!!!

OBAMA O8~WON'T THAT BE GREAT????!!!!

Sandi, I hope Josh came back safely from Iraq. I voted for Bush the first time because I thought he was the best choice.  In 2004, my Bush vote was more of an "against Kerry" vote, and still giving B the benefit of the doubt.  But now, this time, it is SO EXCITING to have someone I can really believe in, even if I don't agree with every detail of his agenda.  Obama is authenic, he is energizing, and he brings hope back to our nation!!!   As he said tonight........"It is time to stand up and reach for what is possible!"  Doesn't that give you faith in the future?

I makes me say........Yes, we can!!!

Consider Independent that Democrat.  I'm on the slightly other end of the spectrum, Reagan solidified me (for 20 some years) as opposed to pulling me in.

I live in Louisiana, and we have a closed primary, in which Independents are not allowed to vote.  I have no compunction about crossing party lines when I feel it is the best thing for my city, state or nation.

Reagan solidified you as a Republican?  Are you now crossing over to vote for Obama???  Say yes.......please say yes!!

It is a very proud feeling, even though there are a lot of people who are so angry and feel we are being disloyal. I can't help how they feel, and bless them anyway, because it does transend so many things that we have to find somewhere, some common ground to begin the steps it takes to move us all forward! And I am proud to be following a wonderful leader~My Obama!!!

It scares me how excited people are becoming about one person, one "leader". How much they believe in words. Democracy has become one big show in this country.

We need Obamacan lapel pins. I'd wear it proudly. I wish I had had one on Sunday when Allan Keyes had an after church lunch in my restaraunt.
oops
browser spazzed here...

Yes, I'm an Obamaican.  Although I don't like being labeled.  And this is somewhat tough to say and admit, but I became a Republican because of Reagan.  I thought he could bring the Country together. (And He did!!!!!!)  I feel the same way about Obama.  It's not about race, it's not about gender, it's not about party, it's  about leadership.  I feel the Obama will allow us, U.S., to lead.

 I am inspired that he pushes me to do what is best for the whole.  When I hear him speak it's about the people and not the party (the Democratic Party).    It is up to us, the "Obamaicans and Independents" to make sure that he, Obama, hears us.  Please let him know that for him to win us, he must speak for all, and not just the party.  He's done a great job so far.  We need to keep him focused.

 

 

Ha! Aaron! That happens to me, too! And there's no delete!

I agree! I've been watching him now for months, and he continues to be authentic and really seems to have the big picture!

Thanks for your words and welcome to OBAMICAN LAND!

Greetings Obamicans!

I am, well, I guess you could call me an Obamocrat--a Democrat for Obama.  I'm a somewhat rarer species, a New York Obamocrat.  We tried very hard to get Obama votes on Long Island NY.  In my Congressional District, he won 2/5 delegates.   Not bad, considering. There are a number of Obamicans in the group  (see my post http://sciencesense-eyesopen.blogspot.com/2008/01/obama-trounces-clinton-in-new-york.html). 

 If you had told me a year ago that I'd be making friends with Republicans working to win Democratic primaries, I'd have said you were crazy.  So we have already started reaping the benefits of Barack's message of hope.  We are one nation, and we will disagree at times, but let us work to find common ground.

Yes We Can. 

Obamocrat~this is truly a wonderful time! I am very happy to work with you toward a common goal! This is what "THIS" is all about! Obama would be so proud of us right now!

Well, eyesopen, my new friend, that is what Obama's message is all about.  Ending the divisivion that is destroying our nation.  I have said for several years that partisanship would be the ruination of our country.  With each passing day, the chasm deepens.  Dems vs. Repubs, black vs white vs hispanic, rich vs poor, Judeo/Christian vs any other faith. The list goes on.  Obama is the only person in a long long time that seems to really see the problem, and be able to bridge all of the things that divide our nation.  He gives us hope of being the UNITED States of America again.  He speaks of things in Washington that need change without the vitrol that peppers others speeches.  No matter what his opinion, he shows respect for the office of president. He calls on all of us to be a part of the change, not to sit back and let big brother take care of us.  He calls us to arms for our country.......not on some foreign battlefield, but here, where we all need to fight together for a better government, to forge for ourselves a better way of life.  He does not use the politics of fear to let us know that he will do what is needed, if necessary, to protect us from foreign or terrorist agression.  I could go on and on, but you get my drift.  As he has said often, "We are the change we have been waiting for".   I feel he is the answer to a prayer, and he fills me with hope and anticipation.  I would support him no matter what party label he wore.  So just get used to having Republican friends working for a common cause. :)  It is becoming a movement that you will not believe!!!

Well, said...sister, Obamacan.!   We can!

Hey guys.

 I just want to say this to you all, because this is quite special. I'm from the UK, and so I've pretty much no say in your election. But there are a lot of people over here who are watching your election with very very keen eyes. Over here partisan politics is far stronger than in the US, and the focus is much more on the party than on the individual (most people only vote for the party, not knowing anything about the politician they are voting for, which is sad) - My point is that it is SO inspiring to see Republicans and Democrats working together to elect a man, a man who I strongly believe can damage the US's tattered reputation abroad (and I'm very pro-US, not one of these european US haters) - Whilst I don't think McCain or Clinton would be a bad choice, I don't think they could possibly send the impact around the world that electing Obama could. Now I'm not here to slam Bush, or to say that Obama will solve every problem. He won't. But he'll definitely make a good start.

 I just want you to know that as a Brit, I'm proud of you guys. Proud of you for looking beyond politics, for looking beyond party, for looking to the future. Go get em. 

Thank you, Matt for sharing that! I have a friend from the UK, Nottingham, and he and I met on MYSPACE because we are both HOCKEY NUTS! He even sent me Nottingham Panther Jersey's and I sent him one from IOWA. He was sharing in my excitement for the caucus's and even said our Iowa Caucus was on your news there. He said he watched a caucus in Des Moines and was looking for me. He also said he thought I'd be for the girl. Ha! I was so interested in the things he shared with me about the UK and your politics. Here is what Iain wrote...

Iowa is all over our 24 hr news here at the moment with your election thingy..

We are not political beasts over here in the UK as you all seem to be in the States,..all our politicians seem merge into one self serving mass,.. the definition of policy by party has avery blurred edge here. No one really gives a rats ass to be honest.

Same with church,.. most churches here are empty and you probarbly go three times in your life ,.. birth , marriage ,.. death,.. LOL

.....and I got married in a civil ceremony so missed the second one,.. and will probarbly miss the third !!
 Britain is a very secular society,.. the only real religious people over here are Muslim and Hindu.

Actually,..many churches have been deconsicrated and changed roles to mosques...

Have fun,. I'll look for you waving a flag at a rally  (thought you'd be supporting the girlie tho ,..)

Iain

SO, welcome Matt from the UK and thank you so much for your words. It helps so much to have other's voices say he will make a difference as we believe he will! You give that argument MUCH NEEDED CREDIBILITY. No one believes anything without proof. Thank you for the proof!

Then, from menu bar select Media > BarackTV then, scroll down the list of videos (on your right) to find the speech you want.

 Go, us!  Go, Barack Obama!  Hawaii and Wisconsin today!

YES WE CAN!! (sure wish Hillary would stop using that, although I believe it was first used to further the Farm Workers Movement, Barack has furthered it's power in his campaign) It was never meant to support the Status Quo as Hillary has used it. She is just misinformed.

Obama’s efforts to connect to the Republican Party, specifically Bush, and Dick Chaney, of the Halliburton Company, dates back to the Presidents Grandfather, Prescott Bush, and indeed Chaney was once an executive officer of Halliburton.

The American military pounds Iraq with Artillary, bombs, and the like, destroying large sections of cities, and infra-structures, then Halliburton comes in to rebuild. Halliburton and Halliburton associated companies have raked in ten’s of billions.

Obama is just like the BIG HALIBURTAN. Haliburton has contracted to build detention centers in the U.S. similiar to the one in Quantanammo Bay, Cuba. Halliburton does nothing to earn the Two Dollars for each meal an American Serviceman in Iraq eats.

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/08/17/eveningnews/main636644.shtml

Halliburton was scheduled to take control of the Dubai Ports in The United Arab Emiirate. The deal was canceled when Bush was unable to affect the transfer of the American Ports.

Now we see what some might suspect as similiar financial escapading from the Democrats.

Two years ago, Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity gave a $50 million contract to a start-up security company - Companion- owned by now-indicted businessman (TONY REZKO) Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley, to train Iraqi power-plant guards in the United States. An Iraqi leadership change left the deal in limbo. Now the company, Companion Security, is working to revive its contract.
Involved along with Antoin “Tony” Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here.

Obama should be vetted and disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides, his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming tax fraud charges — Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM and stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It’s time to shove an introduction to this fake rip-off Obama and invite the thief pipsqueke to meet the Waukesheake Police Department.

Thank you, Ms. Reno, for such a passionate post.

When you have time, please let me know where  Quantanammo Bay is, and what in the world Haliburton has to do with Obama.

In my neighborhood we call that defamation of character.

LOL Kathryn....in my neighborhood (loosly speaking:)  we call it pseudo-intellectual
