Senator Obama Gains Support From Kentucky Congressman

Barack Obama can add another super-delegate to his totals.

Kentucky Congressman Ben Chandler announced Tuesday morning he's supporting Obama for the presidential nomination.

The announcement comes just weeks before the Kentucky primary race. Obama is leading democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the delegate count, though Clinton has more super-delegates.

    Wonder how old Ben feels now that Obama's pastor is back in the news and making it all come up again...wonder how he feels about Obama denouncing his pastor now that it is hurting his campaign...My guess is been thought he was jumping on the gravy train and now it doesn't look so good...LOL!!

    Well Finally, Obama has done something he should have done months ago...He denounced the rantings of Wright...It's about time, but I would say it is a day late and a dollar short...

    I honestly can not believe that Kentucky delegates will go to a man who apparently can not be trusted. He stated today that Pastor Wright has not been his spiritual advisor, however, in his second book he stated that Pastor Wright was his spiritual advisor.......HMMMMMMMMMM....To me that is a lie.........If he will lie about his church, what else will he lie about?

    All Chandler wants to do is be in the history book as backing Obama the first black man to maybe be President.

    TO YOU IN KENTUCKY, OBAMA IS THE BEST PERSON TO HAVE IN THE WHITE HOUSE. ALL THE WHITE TRASH THAT HAS BEEN IN THERE ALL THESE YEARS HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING THAT IS WHY THIS COUNTRY IS IN THE SHAPE IT IS IN. ALL YOU REDNECKS IS THE MAIN REASON THIS COUNTRY IS THE WAY IT IS. YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MIND SET, YOUR WAY OF THINKING. IT IS YOU WHO THIS COUNTRY IS DAMED, BECAUSE OF THE WAY YOU ACT AND THINK. HILLARY IS A REPUBLICAN, SHE IS A OLD WOMAN THAT CAN'T THINK STRAIGHT. IF SHE LIE ABOUT ONE THING, SHE WILL LIE ABOUT A WHOLE LOT MORE. I GUESS YOU ALL LIKE PEOPLE LYING TO YOU. VOTE OBAMA, VOTE OBAMA, OBAMA OBAMA.

    So many narrow minded thinkers. Love that status quo don't ya. Well if you like so much go on paying your ridiculous prices for healthcare, prescriptions and insurance. Go on paying the high price at the pump and losing money that could be for food, fun, or luxuries. And finally go on paying for your childrens education and let them get themselves in debt to pay for more education. Change is needed in the direst way and so far Obama is the only light of hope for change. The slick words of Hillary and McCain are like the charm of a snake.

    I would like to ask where, the thought process of Kentucky Congressman Ben Chandler. Has the congressman lost his mind? Or maybe the congressman should be out of his seat if he backs this man.

    If Obama gets in there we are all doomed. I would perfer Clinton but if it came down to Obama or McCain I would have to vote for McCain. We don't need another republican in there cause look at what the one that is in there have done for us already but we sure don't need Obama. So, I sure hope that Hilary does beat Obama for everybodys sake.
