    No flag pin again – wasn't he the one that made a big flap about the flag pin?

    Of course, he flaps (and flips and flops) on everything –

    No to war – No to McWarmonger

    AHA – McCain WAS NOT in the cone of silence – he could have heard questions and answers long before he got to the church in So. CA.

    He cheats and lies and people praise him – what a DORK !!!!!!!

    I've just lost all respect for Candy Crowley and Bill Schneider. The are in McCain's pocket – to say the very least.

    You can tell a lot by a picture. Now if you were to label one of these candidates 'elitist' and 'overprivileged', which one would you pick? The one with his sleeves rolled up extending a handshake to young supporters at a high school or the one with his wife whos wearing a full hand and wrist cast for a SPRAIN, carrying starbucks and each holding a cell phone?

    If you like abortions, you will love Obama. He would even have his daughter have one, I've heard. Under his leadership, you probably could go to the five and dime and pick up one.

    He is certainly risky and it would be a gamble for him to be in charge.

    Obama also likes the taxes. The more the merrier. He will tax you and spend your money. Probably on a vacation to Hawaii where he can body surf.

    McCain will protect your wallet, your values and your country. With Obama it would be a gamble. I don't want to gamble with my life and my country.

    "Pastor" Rick is a LIAR. McCain was not in a cone of silence. He didn't arrive until30 minutes later. He had complete access to the show before he came on stage. The whole thing was a lie set up to make McCain look good. America has been duped again by MSM.
    CNN, MSNBC, FOX, all should be ashamed to promote this farce. At lease Obama is HONEST. I wouldn't trust McCain with my cat....

    Good photos!
    Obama with the American people,
    and Cindy McCain with her latte and purple phone!
    And is that McCain holding his Iphone? The one he used to watch Paster Warren's questions and Obama's responses to the forum last night?

    Awww!! The McCains deserve some sympathy. That must be a horrible, horrible injury.

    I've had far more serious sprains than a handshake and never needed to sport a cast for attention.What a drama queen.

    Is that a Starbuck's latte in Cindy McCain's good hand? What's going on? Will she be driving a Volvo (or, even worse, a Prius) next? Well, I'm sure John McCain prefers Dunkin Donuts coffee, so that must mean he'd be a good president. After all, a politician's dietary choices are so much more important than his intelligence, integrity, and judgment....

    he could be adviced by his advicers by cell phone, prepairing all the answers to same questiobs ahead of time the all the top advicers! “he was in the cone of a Secret Service motorcade”.it is very possibleit is very possible
    this is how they estimate American people's intelligence ?. they insult millions American intelligences by comparing Obama to Hilton...they dismiss the power of people...a American people' leader (Brack Obama)of course popular than special interests ' leader(John McCain).

    What a fake. Have you noticed how HUMBLE he's trying to act. He's FAKIN' it til he makes it.

    So McCain did not violate "cone of silence" although he was 30 min. late to the forum; this is per Charlie Black hmmmmm you mean to say that in his motorcade he does not have satellite radio? While he may not had a TV all they would had to do would tune into CNN on XM...duh!!!!

    McCain 08! 🙂

    Obama is losing it because he doesn't get it!

    Looks like the McCains should stop shaking hands for fear of ending up paralyzed ...

    August 17, 2008 08:21 pm at 8:21 pm |

    McCain or should I say McCheat at the faith forum should be ashamed of stooping to such a low level to gain votes. It is obvious McCheat knew the questions before they were asked. Before Warren finished the question on Education, McCheat answered yes, yes, and kick the bad teachers out. How did he know that was a three part question. How could he possibly know about the supreme court topic. JOHN MCCAIN IS A LYING, CHEATING, PANDERING OLD MAN AND I HAVE NO RESPECT FOR HIM NOW.
