Finally a memorable phrase from this convention - Bob Casey calling McCain not a maverick but a sidekick. That's what the Democrats need, something simple and easy to remember.
The choice this election season is a ZERO or a HERO. Obama's hero is Teddy Kennedy, a man who covered up the death of his mistress to protect his career. Democratic heroes read like a circus sideshow: Barney Frank with his male prostitution business, JFK and Bill Clinton with their womanizing, and now Obama with a wife who is ashamed of America, a long time mentor and pastor who hates white people and the good senator had no clue.....sure. Obama is an amateur and a lighweight compared to McCain.
real talk . A sidekick is the word for McFries
Here's a question for you. Why are the Hillary supporters now supporting McCain overlooking his avowed "pro-life" stance? Here's another question. If McCain has at any time stated in his political career that he supports Roe vs. Wade or thinks overturning Roe vs. Wade would be a mistake, why isn't the Obama campaign making political hay out of this obvious flip flop?
How would you know if it was the only one...you have been talking through allof the speeches...denying your audience complete access to all of the speakers.
Yup! Very Republican-like. I liked Casey and Warner. Short speeches with simple catchy phrases.
4 MORE MONTHS!
Oooooh how original!
CNN – Obama can do without all the press, mostly negative he's been receiving.
I'm not on nobody's side but its just amazes me how much excitement and drama is going on. AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP PERIOD!!! BE TRUE TO YOUR SELF AT ALL TIMES. DON'T LET NOBODY INFLUENCE YOU IN A BAD WAY LET IT BE THE GOOD WAY PERIOD!
Memorable phrase indeed! I believe we have a new definition of John McCain.
Way to go Dennis Kucinich!!
GREAT JOB!! Come on Democrats!! Get mad!!
Go after McBush!! This country CANNOT tolerate any more of this!!
Laughing Republican, never mind come November you will be the crying repugnican.
I would rather have a sidekick then a tallywagger
not only a sidekick, but also hypocrite and mean
4 more months!!!!! love it!!!!
DEMS ATTACK for God's sake! ATTACK! ATTACK!!!!!!!
Honestly, I am so sick of this contrived divisiveness re: the Clintons. Who cares? Bill has a lot of nerve whining about his "legacy" – I've got news for you Bill, your legacy is Monica and a certain blue dress. Get over yourself. Obama is the future of this country and the Clintons are not even in the mix – the choices are McBush or Obama. As Dennis Kucinich said "Wake UP, America"!
Why discuss policy when you can create a sound bite.
My other favorite catchphrase: the McCain/Bush policies amount to "Country Club Economics". Brilliant and far too true.
And to LR, you kind of missed the point (not surprisingly)–GWB doesn't need to run when his punchy little, everyone-look-at-me-because-I-was-a-POW-sidekick will run the Bush/Cheney policies for him...
No, actually what the Democrats need is an experienced candidate
instead of an unvetted poseur like Obama.
Am I alone in recognizing that throughout this process, since Hillary was a contender for the Democratic Nomination, that there were no recorded statements from Obama supporters that they would rather vote for 4 more years of Bush ideology from McCain than vote for Obama.... I appreciated former Pres. Bill Clinton and all that he did while Pres. But Hillary did not win the nomination, and though it took her a while to withdraw and accept defeat...She has plugged in and recognizes the need for Democratic Unity....Is supporting Obama and I am sure there is room for her in his Cabinet....What are YOU waiting on... GET REAL
CNN: If you are seriously interested what your viewers think of your coverage of the convention, do you beieve you have to continue as you have? Don't you read the blogs? You are not the only media outlet and people do have the choice of freedom to go somewhere else, which should give you pause. The word "change" comes to mind. Given the discontent expressed, you will continue to loose more viewers not counting the ones which already have left. HERE is your chance .. take it!
