Obama Goes on Gun Control

6/28/2008 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack ObamaBarack Obama is gearing up for the fight of his life -- by hitting the gym!

The candidate for change was spotted at a DC sports club on Friday morning in a baseball cap, t-shirt and running pants, working his triceps and hoisting 65 lb dumbbells, according to the National Journal. Barack also got his cardio on while reading the paper and listening to his iPod on the treadmill. Arnold ain't the only bodybuilder in the political ring!

As if the three-car motorcade and Secret Service agents didn't give his identity away, Barack had to be looked up in the gym's system because he forgot his membership card.

Running for President ain't what it used to be!

Ooooo Noooo!    

Anyone from Chicago will tell you he's just another hack pol in bed with all the wrong people. Check it out: When he had the chance to endorse and work for the election of a reformer for the Cook County Board, (Forest Claypool) Obama endorced the machine tool's son Todd Stroger, who is now under FBI investigation for corruption. Obama is no reformer. It's all smoke screen.

Barack Obama is going to be one of the greatest Presidents ever, after eight years. Right up there with Washington, Lincoln, and FDR.

I would have a hard time voting for someone who was a member of such a racist and america-hating church, for 20 years no less, like obama was. He doesn't fool me.

Wake up America. Stop with the fear of what you don't understand. Stop embracing chain emails spouting hatred, ignorance and intolerance. WAKE UP AMERICA. We are a people divided by race, class, sex, religion and so many other preconceived notions our so-called friends and families have pushed on us our whole lives and we are weaker as a nation.

For once stop and think for yourself and don't follow along blindly because of your upbringing. I don't care who you vote for but show some common sense and basic intelligence rather then blindly reciting fear and propaganda and using it as the basis for reasoning.

I wonder how the dumb bells liked his flip flops?

I still don't know how Obama feels about gun control. He changes his opinion more frequently than he changes his stance on the Fourth Amendment.

Yes, FISA, I'm talking about you!

Obama says you are a racist if you don't vote for him. That's good enough for me!!!

This guy has screwed everything up. He has no business challenging Hillary Clinton for the office that was rightly hers, which she would have waltzed into in a landslide election and presided over eights successful years of righting the ship of state of the United States. And the reason he has SQUEAKED past her is two-fold: ONE: the element of surprise (like all skilled interlopers employ), and, TWO: such a deep well of anger toward the worst president in history, our current president, just one of the mani-fold residual catastrophes that Bush has left for us to deal with as his legacy of failure, arrogance, mendacity and foolishness. But make no mistake: Obama is not a uniter. He is an angry man and he will be greeted with anger by the Congress and by the people. He is a member of an angry and disenfranchised minority group and as such is not a legitimate leader of this country.
