Mayer Endorses Obama For U.s. President

Rocker JOHN MAYER has become the latest Hollywood star to publicly endorse BARACK OBAMA for U.S. president, urging critics of the politician's message of "hope" to reconsider.
The 31-year-old singer has made a last minute bid in support of the Democratic candidate less than a week before the history-making election next month (04Nov08).
In a column for online blog The Huffington Post, Mayer writes: "Obama gives me the feeling that I could be alive to witness one of the most brilliant upturns in a country's history. What a concept. That's why hope is a worthwhile commodity. To those who question whether hope is a tangible product worth building a campaign around, I'd say take a look at despair and how powerful that has been in reshaping how people think and live.
"I believe the definition of the 'hope' that Barack Obama enthuses operates on the unspoken thesis that there has to be a polar opposite to the despair of 9/11. Because if we accept that there's not, the will to live becomes forever altered.
"To adults who will vote for him, Barack Obama represents a return to prosperity. To the youth, he represents an introduction to it."

I GUESS YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT AMERICA OR YOUR FANS.I can't imagine how you could be so naive to do thiswhen it's been right in everyone's face how dishonest he is. Out right liar that changes his plan all the time to appease the people. Plan on SPREADING YOUR WEALTH AROUND... Please keep my email info for this as I could use it...Anyone that has been associated with the people he has for all of these years should cause doubt in your mind. John McCain is an HONEST man with a background to prove it. I might just stay on your bandwagon so when YOU SPREAD YOUR WEALTH AROUND, I'll BE here.. And, don't think you won't be doing that....

Honest Huh...Fact 1: Keating 5Fact 2: lying cheat- how conveniently you forget about Mrs. McCain #1 and how he treated her.Who are we to JUDGE?There is nothing wrong with assuring that the middle class or working class thrives. My family will see its' taxes increase with Obama's plan ($250,000+) but if it means future generations will experience the prosperity that we have WONDERFUL. As a Christian & INDEPENDENT voter, I am disgusted at the direction the GOP has led our country. Have we become a nation of hateful, judgemental, intolerant people???? I hope not.
