Too bad our political system must rely so heavily on money. We the people have become, we the pocketbooks. The money that has been spent to get a person elected is ridiculious. I guess it helps the local economies when the media and all the people rent rooms and by food and fuel to follow this candidates around. We need solutions, not empty promises. I feel Hillary Clinton will do the best job to restore our economy and our health care system. I will write her name on my ballot in November, I have a gut feeling about Obama that I just can't shake and I'm am seldom wrong about my perception of people.
I should be able to make 3 million dollars just standing and waving.
They can run, but they can't hide. Sorry losers!
McCain, who's your daddy ?. This picture is worth a thousand words, but I don't know where to begin.
It is amazing what someone will do for money, isn't it?
Anyone see a Nixon resemblance?
Bush and McBush! Notice neither is wearing the required American flag on their lapel. Rove and LimpBaugh where are you when we need you, the psuedo patriotic policemen? Just goes to show how tight McBush is with Bush.
Birds of a feather
And now McCain want too have a Bush third term with same old and wrong politics. He dererve too loose, if he has health too manage too campaign too election day.
You can't trick all of us. We know you haven't broke up. You are still dating.
Some military man, he keeps giving his opposition ammo :)
Why can't we see Bush's right arm-hand? That is because he has it up McCain's back making him talk. This just proves that McCain has become Bush's puppet.
They make such a cute couple!
if anyone is stupid enough to vote for mcsenile, you should be sent to iraq for 100 years
WE DO NOT NEED THIS AGAIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE
VOTE DEMOCRAT IF YOU ARE A CONCERNED CITIZEN!!!!
Hmm.... This is McCain's support base.... What do you expect if McCain were President?...
4 more years of failed Bush policies, hypersecrecy and lies....
America, don't make the same mistakes again.... the country and the world can not afford it!
That is sickening. No more 4 years of this administration. This is coming from a Veteran from Iraq. I admire Mr. McCain but no thank you.
Worst President in American History + Worst Candidate In Recent History = Disgrace to our founding fathers. I feel sorry for anyone who clings to their party affiliation with the GOP. It's pathetic. A party that discounts the science of Global Warming. A party that is in constant denial regarding our economy. A party who would rather spend trillions on an illegal war than spend billions on healthcare in our own country. I feel sorry for anyone who considers themselves a Republican. "Dubya" has done everything in his power to tear down our country. I pray that McCain gets handed the November Election Beatdown of his 294 year life. That way, we'll have a leader who votes IN FAVOR of veterans benefits.
Best buds = same failed policies. McCain's 100 years in Iraq would be the demise of our great nation. Luckily Americans won't bite his hook in November.
John McSame. Or is is it McShame? 2 more supers for Obama today, 46 to go. That's the news!
anything for money
Please help me. I cannot tell whom is whom in the photo. Is that Bush or McBush on the right?
McCain can choose to hide under the table whenever Bush walks by we still know he's George Bush's third term. It's not about seeing both of them together but McCain's embrace of George W. Bush's policy. He dropped his middle position on issues in the senate to embrace the hard line position of George Bush now that he is running for president. It's only so he can win over the Republican base. He's not getting them and he's loosing his argument to the American people.
It's just like The Patty Duke Show!
The only way McCain can win is to appeal to Bush's base. If he just does everything Bush did, he will win. Just like we won in 2006!
