Barack Obama to Visit Jacksonville Saturday

According to the Jacksonville Times Union, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama will visit the First Coast on Saturday.

A specific time and place have not been determined yet.

Obama's last trip to Jacksonville was in June for a fundraiser.

The event should be open to the public, much like John McCain's event today in Jacksonville.

Obama did not campaign in Florida during the presidential preference primary.

    Dr Jack, way to invoke slavery and insanity. Maybe you should make a pro-McCain commercial, Obama isnt from slaves so you shouldn't vote for him. Goodbud, you honestly know nothing about the electoral college or basic grammar and spelling. campane?? looser?? BTW california has no political ads from Obama or McCain, its not a swing state thus it would be inefficient for either to spend resources there.

    bho, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume,no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, nothing but abstract empty rhetoric devoid of real substance. He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave.Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white. Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

    This might be a little off message, but I was listening to the financial news today and got to thinking. How much could George Soros be manipulating the market and causing instability. He has been known to play with the markets in the past. This along with the banks giving out too many risky loans, causing the markets to take a hit. The president has no say in this but he gets blamed when things go wrong. This country is actually being run by the money men, and power brokers behind the scenes, and we are all getting screwed. George Soros is funneling millions of dollars into Obamas campaign, and why would he do this unless he had something to gain. Most people know nothing of this man because the MSM is in the tank for Obama. Soros is not only an Anti-American Socialist, but pure evil. The Democrats are playing with the “Devil”, and the American people will pay for it. George Soros is Obama’s TOP campaign donor. NOBAMA MOVEMENT SPREADS ACROSS THE NATION
