The fact that the two presidential candidates have been in eastern North Carolina within a week of each other underscores how important a battleground our state has become. Newschannel 3’s Steve Rondinaro covered both the McCain and Obama events. There was in-depth coverage when John McCain visited Wilmington. Steve went to Fayetteville Sunday, wanting to get a similar first-hand look at Barack Obama in action. Barack Obama’s soaring oratory inspires a loyal and impassioned following. At times, he assumes a preachers rhythm, sweeping the willing crowd along with him "I think the winds of change are blowing. Not just here in North Carolina, but in Virginia…," said Obama. Barack wear is high fashion at the event in Fayetteville. From t-shirts to buttons all over. There is even a Barack Obama action figure. Retired school principal, Beverly Scott, was at the event wearing Obama earrings and an Obama watch. "It’s time for change," she said. Super star swooning aside, that is the Obama message that is resonating with his supporters; across racial lines and genders. Carrie Bradley of Hope Mills said, "I like with the older adults what he’s going to do about health care." "I like that he’s the father of young children and cares about the future. That’s what it’s all about, the future," said Eileen Donagh of Fayetteville. "I believe he’s a man of his word. I believe he’s going to do what he says he’s going to do," added Fayetteville resident, Herman Gordon. Obama’s early voting message is being heeded here in North Carolina and across the country. The last break-down we saw showed Democrats in the heavy majority of those who have already voted.

If there were any real doubt that Obama was a natural born U.S. citizen it would have been vetted long before now.

This says everything that needs to be said. If there were a real issue, we would be seeing it everywhere, not just in little back-water blogs that only fanatics bother to read.

Do you not think that McCain’s camp and Hillary’s would have found out the truth by now? More rumors still floating around the internet.

Phill Berg’s attempt was dismissed by a federal judge this month because they were found to be “frivolous and not worthy of discussion” also… Read more »

you could be opening a whole can of unpleasant worms for Barrack Hussein Obama, II.

He’s in Hawaii right now trying to suppress a court hearing. If the hearing is succesful, it will require entry of a British birth certificate for Barrach Hussein Obama, II issued by the way on his birthdate, for a child born in a hospital in the then British colony of Kenya.

Do you think Obama really wants that can of worms to open up?

Cause, if that birth certificate is his and is legal, he is not a US citizen. He is an illegal alien. … Read more »

No, he isn’t. That’s just what the liberal media wants you to beleive. Don’t be so quick to declare a winner yet. No matter who wins this election, we all will lose.
