You guys are forgetting, Obama economic policy in higher
taxes for those who makes 250,000 or above. High taxes for
oil company. But no higher taxes on anyone makes lesser than
250,000. Mccain support Bush taxes cut.

You're wrong on Obama's Iraq position too. He wants full
withdrawal by March 2008? He wasn't even the nominee yet!
It's more like a minimum of 18 months, so that puts
withdrawal in 2010-2011.
This is so obvious!

The list is not factually accurate.
Their positions on immigrants apparently has been switched.

People are disagreeing due to the fact that on the issue of
Immigration, Barack Obama does NOT support a fence along the
Mexican border. As this is one of the major issues,
especially in the Hispanic community, this represents
dis-information and as such, people disagree.
