Barack Obama Campaign Managers, Spin Masters and Handlers Considered As we watch the Barack Obama campaign make mistake after mistake in addressing the issues, we also see an attempt to compare him to Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and even Martin Luther King. Indeed, these are all very noble and wise men to compare Barack Obama to, but I would like to take this opportunity to compare Barack Obama to Ralph Nader. In fact, Ralph Nader and Barack Obama are both inline on many key issues, and it seems to me that you could pick either of these two candidates if you believed in certain things, as their rhetoric, politics and message is very much the same on most of the main issues. There are only a few real differences. First, Barack Obama clearly by observation is not nearly as smart as Ralph Nader, at least that is my opinion, and I'd have to wager probably Ralph Nader is a good 20-25 points higher than Barack Obama in IQ. Next, Barack Obama has a lot more money than Ralph Nader, as MoveOn.org has really assisted him, thus, he can outspend even Hilary Clinton's political Machine. One thing that might be nice is to see Ralph Nader as a running mate with Barack Obama, that would give a little intelligence to Barack Obama's message, rather than all this flowery rhetoric and rosy speeches read from clay tablets. So far, Barack Obama has tried to distance himself from Ralph Nader, but that will prove to be a mistake, as Ralph Nader's type of follower is very much part of Barack's voting base. If Barack gets the nomination, Ralph Nader will take significant votes from Barack and as the election process goes on it could cost Barack the general election. If Ralph Nader gets 2-4% of the vote, as Barack's followers get tired of all talk and no substance, then John McCain might easily walk away with it. Leaving Democrats holding the bag for falling once again for a candidate with no substance behind the words. This of course, is my opinion and Barack Obama's spin masters, campaign managers and handlers are getting a little cocky in my view, and its only a matter of time until Barack Obama buries himself. And if Ralph Nader ever debates with Barack Obama, then Barack does not stand a chance on his own. He'll need a special WiFi listening device in his ear to debate with Ralph Nader, who can probably hold his own against anyone. I write this from a non-biased opinion, I am voting NOA in this next election, cause I am just tired of all the BS anyway - what about you? "Lance Winslow" - Online Think Tank forum board.
