    This is Brandon

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that "John" isn't a fan of Obama. I wonder how many other blogs he posted his comment on?

  3. Hey Brandon

    I actually carefully crafted this post specifically for Jon Stone's blog. Don't you hate it when people just post these long angry rants all over the internet? :) I am proud to say though, that this is the only place where I have posted this response. After watching the video I was overcome with the lack of substantive issues in his speech. For me this was an exercise in finding all the issues where I substantially disagree with Barrack Obama. I love Jon and praise him for taking a stance on what he thinks is right. Of course I could not let this "rock star" video go unrequited. :) I am definitely not a fan of Obama. However, I credit our disagreement to what I see as his misguided viewpoint not to him being a "bad person".

    Peace, Love Respect
