    Keep wasting time McSenile. While you're blowing money on stupid ads, Obama just registered 3,000 more people (which = more donations). Now you're trying to crash a football practice. Nobody will get off their butts to see you.

    Obama/Sebelius 2008/2012.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    This just out. As many of us thought and now is being told by a head member of PUMA who has just quit do to the lack of substance in the McCain camp. PUMA really stands for People Under the McCain Administration. They created it shortly after the Dem debates to fool the Clinton supports while there blood was still boiling to divide the party. Again no botttm to low but they do prove they are smarter enough to know people are gullable!!!!!!

    You've got to be kidding me.

    I supported Hillary but you don't see me running around in a jumpsuit. Typical cult-like behavior.

    McCain is a joke. The public is not stupid, we know when someone is of base. He can not even read his notes correctly, and for him to offer his wife for such a beauty contest. I am offended to think that they put someone this of base to run for president. McCain makes Bush seem look smart and that is not a compliment.

  9. bill for barack

    It makes sense that McLame is talking to a football team.
    America's sport is baseball.
    McLame is Panamanian.
    He doesn't understand about America.

    LOVE the picture. Was McLame trying to recruit these guys for the Navy to go fight his war? He is so out of touch with what people are thinking and feeling today. By the way, if he says "My Friends" one more time, I will scream!!! I am NOT your friend Sen. McCain!

  11. McShame On Him

    If the crowd won't go to him, then he'll go to the crowd. John is lame and can't pay people to listen to him, so he goes to wherever the people are, and bores them to tears.

    This guy is a zero, and he will not be the next POTUS.

    Don't accuse Obama of being too popular because YOU are not. What an idiot.

  12. The Jokester

    They should have continued playing ball, and let John just run on the field. Then they should have tackled him for stopping their practice.

    Next he'll be at my daughter's Girl Scout meeting. Give me a break–go away John. Jeesh.

  14. McLame Can't Pay Me To Listen

    LOL, these guys needed a break, and look at those faces. They are being polite because who would be interested in John McLame.

    Hussein Nobama the al qaeda candidate! Proven fact!

    The only people more disgusting are the treasonous scum who support him. Hussein Nobama and his supporters hate the US and want it to be destroyed. Proven fact!

  16. wake up

    Mccain...the bought candidate. Lowell Paxson bought McCain for $100,000.00 and in return McCain wrote 2 letters to the FCC recommending they let Paxson purchase a Pittsburgh TV station...funny, McCain was bought by the oil companies for $2,000,000.00, Paxson for $100,000.00, Keating got him on a discount only free trips (until John got caught, then he had to pay $13,000.00)...it would seem that John McCain is the auction block/swap meet candidate...a lot like Bush/Chaney...Haliburton two stooges McCain will complete the trio.
    who is really running the Mccain camp?

  17. John McShame, Obama Is Going to Tax You & Cindy, but Not Me & 95% Americans Making < $250,000/Yr

    here is McSame talking to a rented crowd. this old twig cannot even have all of his children from his multiple wives in one room to spout his IGNORANCE.

    I really feel sorry for those players. They came to practice and got stuck having to sit and listen to John McCain for probably over an hour. He probably spoke about winning in Iraq the right way by winning. Duh!!! I thought all Americans could speak english?

  22. Frank, Missouri

    Ha Ha! Have you heard about McCain's "$4-4-4 dollar -ah- bucks-bucks-ah 4 bucks gallon ah 4 bucks a gallon' statement yesterday? How about "We will win the war by winning!"

    You are all ranting and raving about the haircut in the picture which is Obamas logo. I don't know about any of you blind people but I want a LEADER who is proud of his country and FLAG and not some unknown changing what our fore fathers set up for this country and anyone wanting to be LEADER should be showing off his pride in our stars and stripes, Oh yeah but that what some of you believe as change. I don't know about you but I don't want to be thrown out in the deep by someone I don't know and who is ashamed to stand up for the American Way and what it stands for!!!!!!!!

  24. Franky

    Oooops! LOL!!! Hopefully the McCain camp didn't see it...

    By the way, I wanted to comment on the Muslim resignation...

    If you want, I can name a whole bunch of names in Senator McCain's campaign from his start to where he is now?? I mean, is easy!! LOL!!!!!!!!!
