Obama: Yes, we can – Sí se puede

This Obama video by Will.i.am of the Black-Eyed Peas is actually kinda cool.

Whatever one’s thoughts on immigration, it’s interesting that ‘Yes We Can’ is the English for the Spanish ‘Sí se puede,’ which was one of the mottoes of the illegal alien amnesty movement.

I won’t be voting for Obama for the reason he lays out on his website:

Bringing Our Troops Home

Obama will immediately begin to remove our troops from Iraq. He will remove one to two combat brigades each month, and have all of our combat brigades out of Iraq within 16 months. Obama will make it clear that we will not build any permanent bases in Iraq. He will keep some troops in Iraq to protect our embassy and diplomats; if al Qaeda attempts to build a base within Iraq, he will keep troops in Iraq or elsewhere in the region to carry out targeted strikes on al Qaeda.

That policy throws away everything that’s been gained in Iraq, and I won’t vote for that regardless of other issues on the table.
