Obama speaks of unity; chides McCain
WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., says he wants to reassure voters the Democratic Party will be united in seeking to defeat Republicans in the general election.
"Obviously, people have been anxious about some of the sense of division in the party and I just wanted to assure them that whatever happens, we will be coming together," Obama said after he visited the U.S. House of Representatives chamber while it was in session.
He met privately with party leadership, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., when the two accidentally crossed paths at Democratic Party headquarters, The New York Times reported Friday. Besides the meeting, Obama spoke by phone with Pelosi, who has remained publicly neutral.
While leading in the number of primary and caucuses won and pledged delegates, Obama hasn't pressured party opponent Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., to drop out of the race, saying he considers her a formidable opponent.
Obama did criticize presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., for remarks that Palestinian militant organization Hamas would favor Obama's election.
"And so for him to toss out comments like that I think is an example of him losing his bearings as he pursues this nomination," Obama said, calling the comment offensive and a smear, the Times reported.

Re: Senator Obama’s Attack Today
First, let us be clear about the nature of Senator Obama’s attack today: He used the words ‘losing his bearings’ intentionally, a not particularly clever way of raising John McCain’s age as an issue. This is typical of the Obama style of campaigning.
We have all become familiar with Senator Obama’s new brand of politics. First, you demand civility from your opponent, then you attack him, distort his record and send out surrogates to question his integrity. It is called hypocrisy, and it is the oldest kind of politics there is.
It is important to focus on what Senator Obama is attempting to do here: He is trying desperately to delegitimize the discussion of issues that raise legitimate questions about his judgment and preparedness to be President of the United States.
Through their actions and words, Senator Obama and his supporters have made clear that ANY criticism on ANY issue — from his desire to raise taxes on millions of small investors to his radical plans to sit down face-to-face with Iranian President Ahmadinejad – constitute negative, personal attacks.
Senator Obama is hopeful that the media will continue to form a protective barrier around him, declaring serious limits to the questions, discussion and debate in this race.
Senator Obama has good reason to think this plan will succeed, as serious journalists have written of the need for ‘de-tox’ to cure ’swooning’ over Senator Obama, and others have admitted to losing their objectivity while with him on the campaign trail.
Today, Senator Obama is complaining about comments John McCain made about a senior Hamas advisor stating that Hamas would welcome Senator Obama’s election as president. Indeed, on April 13th, senior Hamas political advisor Ahmed Yousef said, ‘We don’t mind – actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance.’

- FRAUD AND FALSE STATEMENTS
Whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or
judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or
device a material fact;
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent
statement or representation; or
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same
to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement
THE BOTTOM LINE.....SENATOR OBAMA LIED AND PLANNED A WRITTEN SCHEME FOR THE PRESIDENCY. He lied and planned a scheme for Illinois Senator.
Practicing Law in the real world and Teaching Law in College is entirely different. Obama as a Law Professor, in college, reviewed the weekness and strength of past caseS. He never was a Constitutional Attorney. He label himself a Constitutional Attorney
Some of the best Attorneys are Prisoners, who have been wrongfully convicted and Represented Themselves... In my Opinion, if Obama felt that he could not win a Case, then, he didnot take it.
To make a long story short, I don't think Hillary would ever consider being your VP Running Mate. You better get that Peanut Farmer from Georgia. Jimmy Carter wouldnot know the different between a Slide Rule and A Calculator...... MORE POWER TO OBAMA and JIMMY CARTER in 2008, NOW YOU CAN LIVE OUT YOUR FANTASY. YOU GOT YOUR ENGINEER.
The Superdelegates better listen to The Superdelegate from ILLINOIS..... If by chance Obama win, then, he will be a weak president. Jimmy Carter was a weak president. That why Iran saw thru the American System And held AMERICAN HOSTAGES under the Jimmy Carter Presidency. America, due to George W. Bush, is almost last in Technology. But, on the otherhand,one of the first in Weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION.
SINCE YOU ARE NOW A QUOTA, I GUESS YOU WILL BRING BACK THE "QUOTA SYSTEM", PUTTING MORE MINORITIES IN POSITION. WHETHER THEY ARE QUALIFIED OR NOT.
