    Clinton supporters need to be awakened to the reality that voting for McCain is another 4 yr love affair with the WRONG MAN!

    McSame, McLame, McShame,McBush,McNevergepresident, McSameAsBush is why this guy should not be president. All of you that are going to vote for him if Hillary doesn't get the nomination just look at this picture as a reminder of what you are voting for. McSame is a joke. He goes where the wind blows. Too old to hold is own in more ways than one. How sad to see him go down like that.
    NAVY Vet. for Obama NoMcSame PLEASE PEOPLE WAKE UP

    A picture is worth a thousand words...America will not stand for a THIRD term of Bush's policies.

    This pic is nauseating...

    Two great Americans.

    Sad to read the excruciating mung from the overwhelming amount of dems responding to these blogs. I'm beginning to think it's the prison community. The working public couldn't have this much time to pen such filth.

    After what this great nation has suffered(and is still suffering) under the Bush administration, I cannot begin to understand how the electorate could seriously consider voting for another four to eight years of the same. In my personal view Mr. Bush has to be the number one worst citizen in the history of the United States with the rest of his administration taking up the subsequent numbers. This country my be in a recession. Be warned that by going in the same direction we will be in a depression.

    Obama challenged these two to a public debate on foreign policies.
    All he got back was 'let's go to Iraq together!?"
    What's up with that big strong military man?
    McCain, and Bush, stop sniping in the press and get on stage in front of cameras with Obama.
    (If you say former presidents don't debate, do they campaign? We hope so! lol)

    NAMES SUCH AS Mac-SAME, MacBush, MacSane, MacLame is quite fitting especially when you have a picture like the one above where they are jtruly joined at the hip. The so call Maverick has become a trickstar.

    McCain has his own bill and it is better than Webb's bill!!!! By the way, I am a hardcore Clinton supporter who will be voting for McCain this fall if Clinton is not the nominee. How about you ignorant Obama supporters do your research.
