    How come they haven't printed up McCAIN/PALIN signs? I think that's a sign.

    Re Romney's sniping at Michelle Obama:
    I am an American who has NOT been proud of this country for the past eight years.
    I am not proud of a system which allows a nerd to toy with the electorate to see how far his schemes can go toward getting a
    cake-for-brains into the WH;
    I am not proud of a Supreme Court which rolls over and hands over the WH to an individual who didn't show up for military service; and
    I am not proud of an administration who lies its way into invading a sovereign country.
    "PUMA" should be changed HADMA ("Honor and Dignity," you finish the rest.)

    CNN-
    Re Republican convention "Facts" on TV screen, why, as opposed to the Democratic convention, are you not reporting the diversity/gender composition of the delegates over and over. I have yet to see the percentages of Caucasians, African Americans, women, Asians, Hispanics, etc.

    Hakim: "Obama a true American 2008 and 2012, Hillary 2016 and 2020."
    ———
    Really? If this is what the future holds, America will most likely cease to exist long before 2012. It's pathetic that so many are cheering on our demise. The rot from within will destroy this country. Hakim has outlined the path to promote such rot.

  9. Republicans run an exclusive cult like club

    Country first. Are the Republicans excluding everyone that doesn't wave the flag or support the war efforts? Are Republicans snubbing all the independents and undecided Democrats and Republicans with this cult like slogan and slamming of everyone that doesn't agree with them?

    I can't wait for the Democrats to use Karl Rove in an ad where he slams Tim Kaine for only having 3 years as Governor and being Mayor of Richmond, a city he said was only 105th in size in the USA. Where does that put Wasilla?

    I have yet to hear how they are going to put the country first. All I hear is attack Obama and Biden but don't say anything bad about McCain and Palin. What happened to the real issues?

  11. Independentandlovingit

    Well,
    If it's true, that really would me her and McCain are made for each other, since he and Cindy are ADULTERERS! They got together while he was married to his first wife! So much for Conservative Moral/Religious Values! And he has integrity...Please..! Help me and can't stop laughing at the hypocracy

    How about a sign that says, "Torture: The Republican Way"?

  15. Repugnants

    Okay, these posts have closed but I'll write my comments anyway.

    -Why should Joe be removed from the committees? I'm an Obama supporter, but we still have freedom of speech.

    -If Mitt Romney attacks Michelle, it will be war. What kind of a pansy man attacks a woman? Bring it on Robothead.

    -Don't know what's going on with the Enquirer, but it is none of our affair. I think the Dems should stay out of it. When the Repugs couldn't pin the baby's daddy story on Barack, they blamed the media. They have to blame somebody in order to get sympathy for a losing campaign.

    Romney taking a swipe at Michelle Obama when he should be taking a swipe at Palin. Mormons don't have the same family values as Palin, McCain, Giuiliani and most other non-Mormon Americans. Romney knows the reason why he wasn't selected for VP or Pres. so he takes the attention off of himself by going after Michelle, how low can you go. If Romney had been selected his family would have taken the worst negative publicity you have ever seen.

  19. Obama 2008

    So – based on picture – I guess you get a choice of which saying you want to put your butt on ... perhaps if you sit on the gap between the seats – you can put your butt on both of them

    It is enough to want to make you fart ... literally

    The youtube video is great! Check it out!

    Noonan and Murphy on Palin

    Country first? Republican party was the one that put this country down. Americans are so proud and religious, but look where they are at... pathetic.

    Here is what's on the flip side of the signs:

    Prosperity reads Obama-Biden 2008

    Country First reads Republicans for Obama-Biden
