US Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-7th District) told NewsChannel 3 Friday night he will support presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama. McIntyre also said, "It’s time for the party to unify." McIntyre’s announcement comes a day before Obama will get his biggest endorsement yet. Former foe Hillary Clinton says she’ll give Obama her support when she speaks to supporters tomorrow. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) says Clinton and Obama met privately at her home Thursday night. Obama and Republican rival John McCain are both taking the weekend off. Obama will then kick off a two-week campaign tour Monday in Raleigh.

I have voted for McIntyre every time since his second election. I have appreciated his support for the military and the Second Amendment.

His recent rantings against oil companies made me start to wonder if he was jumping on the nutjob left-wing bandwagon, and his announced support for Obama leaves little doubt in my mind. He wants a committee chairmanship, and will not get it without towing Pelosi’s line.

Hopefully many others will send Mcintyre a goodbye message by NOT voting for him in November. It will take every one of us, because the entire Western half of District 7 is occupied by societal sponges with their hands out collecting TANF, food stamps, Medicaid, and every other program YOUR tax dollars fund.

Why does everyone on here care so much about who Mike endorsed? I’m a Republican, but will definitely be voting for Obama in this election….I don’t care who endorses who, and I’m trying to figure out why everyone here cares so much as well. I strongly disagree with giving tons of money to people who don’t work it, increasing funding for welfare programs, and many other “pork” type spending programs… all of those things, in my opinion, should NOT be supported by us tax payers; HOWEVER my family and I can’t take where our country is headed anymore. It is time for a balance of power, and dare I say it, we need a Democrat to help this country out (although I’ll probably vote for a Republican again in 2012).

My nephew is fighting in Iraq and is tired. He wants to come home, telling me he’s resigned to the fact that we won’t ever truly “win” a fight against religion. I’m all for the Red, White, and Blue first and foremost, but we can’t continue fighting there anymore, and that is what McCain will continue to do.

Bottom line for me is that I liked Bush and gave him a chance for the past 2 elections… I will not go through another Bush presidency and have my kids be left with no health insurance or help for college.

To those who think that voters for Obama are only asking for handouts…think again. I used to be middle class all my life, but when the middle class are now considered the lower middle class and my family, wife, and 2 sons can’t even make it, I can’t vote for McCain regardless of what he says. I also think us Republicans are in for a rude awakening come November.
