The presidential campaign for Barack Obama is up and running in the area.

The campaign group “Firelands Folks for Obama” started meeting on Feb. 1.

A voter canvas of Norwalk’s northeast side is also planned for 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday. There will be more voter canvassing events planned in the area in Huron, Bellevue and other locations as the primary draws closer.

Shaving with Oc...

Sen. Obama sure does talk pretty.

If he’s chosen as the Dem nominee, hopefully for him he won’t peak too soon before the Nov. elections.

Pretty talk won’t take him all the way. He’s gonna have to put some meat on those bones he’s been throwing to the masses.

If elected in Nov., the man will either be popular like Pres. Kennedy or a one-term disaster like Pres. Carter.

When Sen. Obama’s fans come around, ask ‘em how the U.S. is gonna pay for the estimated $800 billion in new spending he’s planned for so far.

Taxing the rich a little more and ending the unfunded Iraq occupation (ya can’t spend the same money twice) ain’t gonna cover the costs.

If the U.S. is in serious debt currently, is spending $800 billion more gonna solve the problem?

Not gonna do it...

Not gonna vote for a guy with the middle name of HUSSEIN-- nope not gonna do it. All he knows how to do is dazzle his flock of sheep with a bunch of pretty speeches.

If I was voting democrat it sure would not be for Barack Hussein Obama....I would never vote for anyone with a Muslim name and a Muslim heritage to be president of the USA! ...If you don't think Obama has a Muslim family history you are sadly mistaken...he may belong to the Church of Christ now but his childhood, parents and grandparents involved Muslim teachings and faith...that in itself is enough for me to pray he doesn't win.

Obama is a good public speaker.....that is about all he is...no experience or any noteworthy accomplishments....also ask yourself who are enemies would like to see as our President...scary isn't it?

swiss family

true, Obama is a good speaker, but what does Hillary bring to us that is so special??

i can't help bet remember that when the Clintons were leaving the white house, i seem to recall all of the convicted criminals that were pardoned and released from prison, because they bought their way out by giving money to the Clintons... and i also remember that they removed all of the "w" keys from the keyboards in the whitehouse offices.. how childish was that?? supposedly, doing so , because they didn't want George"W" Bush to be able to type his name in... and if i recall properly.. they stole alot of things from the whitehouse and air force #1.. as they left

we have seen what the Clintons could do for us, and honestly, things weren't so bad with them, but the childish pranks at our expense, and the freeing of hardened criminals as they left.. wants me searching for something more.. and maybe that means it'd Obama time..

Realistically, when it comes down to it, we will be voting on two democratic parties. Obama and McCain. Hillary doesn't stand a chance. Personally, I don't like either one- like I said, McCain is a bigger democrat than Obama. He's really not a Republican-he just plays one on T.V.
