    If Bush was the worst President in history he would not have been re-elected. He is also more popular than congress is.

    What do they have to hide, American people are not that stupid they can see what is going on behind close doors. Mccain want to continue what bush started, but he does not want to be seen with bush america wake up.

    This isn't really a photo – it's a starting point for a caption contest! Like: "Did you leave the car running? We gotta get outta here quick – before one of Obama's people takes a picture..." Or "Dumb and Dumberer" Just a chuckle before the war crimes trials.

    Desperation creates haste; haste makes waste. Candidates should refrain from soothsayer predictions about whose going win or lose the the race for President.

    The three candidates should display their "LEADERSHIP" potential, no more-no less, and let the voters decide the "WINNER".

    As goofy as these two look, they still don't look as clueless as Obama does in the pic below it.

    Is everyone on drugs? Hillary is the best choice here.

    Just enough. By obviously trying to avoid being seen with Bush, McCain actually made us more keenly aware of the fact that they were together and realized that it would be a problem.

    Why are you ashamed of a Pres whose policies you support???

    Now that's a scary picture! The stuff nightmares are made of.

    All you fools who voted for Bush, both times, look where that got us. Seems like McSame is your kind of guy! God help us all!

    These two old fools are going to DESTROY the America they say they love. What a big joke.

  23. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

    For all you people disappointed that the Clintons have lost their bid to the White House and are threatening to vote for McCain instead of Obama, you'll have blood on your hands just like Scott McClellan does for not doing the right thing for our country.
