    It seems when you lie and steal the American people embrace you with open arms. Trillons spent on a war that does not make American safer and billions spent to "bail out" corporate cronies. When will the lynching of the American stop? Don't reward this behavior with 4 more years. Our children will have to cash the checks our government is currently writing.

    Honestly speaking, for the sick of America's safety, please pleaseee American, please elect the Obama-Biden ticket for president. I'm a female, and respect Mrs. Palin for reaching this far. I apploy her for that.However, after watching "Sarah Palin Reveal"....hmmmmmmm i just can't see why any rational been will want her to be their VP? She is just not ready for it...

    How low does McCain need to sink into Rovian tactics before America starts seeing these people for what they are?

    #1 McCain: destroying what reputation he had left for power...he wouldn't need to lie if he had any ideas of his own.

    #2 Cindy...her View response was a sign of a true entitled elitist thinking they can control the media. You may have been able to pull it off with your drug addiction Cindy, but not this time.

    #3 Palin...what rational American wants a creationism teaching, tongue speaking, power hungry incompetent a heartbeat away from the white house?

    The Democratic fury is rising...Obama/Biden '08

    That is the most ignorant thing a person can say, Marci. Try to base your future opinions on facts. Learn about the issues before you open your mouth... you will appear less foolish. Think about the hard truths here... what new ideas does Obama bring to the table? None. What has accomplished as a US Senator? Nothing. Who knows what he even stands for? Do you? If so, please give me one specific example of something Obama has ever actually accomplished, or an original idea or his, and I will be very impressed. McCain has proven himself time and again through the legislation he has authored and the wisdom and judgement he has shown in forming policies (i.e. the troop surge, killing the bridge to nowhere, McCain/Feingold, McCain/Kennedy, just to name a few). He is not George Bush. He is not even a conservative Republican. He is an honest man who will do great things for this country.
