Schneider: What to watch for tonight

Recent polls show Democrats are in the lead and Republicans have some catching up to do.

1. How rough will Republican speakers get with Barack Obama? If they try to insinuate that Obama is somehow foreign or unpatriotic, it could backfire badly. Or if speakers use Obama’s middle name.

2. Will the speakers try to link McCain with the Bush Administration’s record? Or will they try to define McCain as the real candidate of change?

    I just watched a video of a journalist getting arrested for trying to cover the rnc. This is an example of what is in store for us if the republicans win. Loss of rights more than we already have lost and the silencing of anyone who has a different opinion from the standard republican thought.

    As much as I try I just can't wrap my low level, left leaning sad excuse for a brain around why anyone believes anything Republicans say. After 8 years of astounding neglect and constitutional abuse by the right wing and Republican party it should be a no brainer that four more years would be catastrophic on so many levels.

    Drew,
    here's my answer to your question: "Why should ANYONE's middle name be considered derogatory?"

    It shouldn't be. Certain people have tried to MAKE it derogatory by insinuation. It's HOW they have been saying it and their purpose in doing so. That purpose is to mislead ignorant people (those who don't do their own homework ) into believing Sen. Obama is a Muslim. As opposed to the Christian that he is. To paint the man as foreign, unpatriotic, and "different".
