    How much did Todd donate to the AIP? Scary that anything that Michele Obama, a graduate from one of the most prestigious universities in this country gets scrutinized for everything she's ever said or done, and this clown, Todd, was a member of s SECESSIONIST group and no one blinks an eye.
    p.s. McCain in Denver today sounded like a dirty old man with his "how 'bout Sarah Palin last night, heh?" with that old man growl in his voice...scary, the both of them.

    Thank God the election is just a few days away. Palin is a joke that't not funny. How could anyone in their right mind elect this person to any office of any kind?

    There is someting that seems to stand out to me, and I am wondering why no one else is picking up on this.

    Ya know, some years back, there was a governor from a very large, oil producing state running for one of the top spots in our government. The person said that he knew oil and would secure the future of our economy and bring down oil prices.

    Hmmm who was that person again?

    I think this is a very simple and easy link to make. I know i'm not the only one thinking this right? An inexperienced governor... oil rich state... bordering other countries...

    Anyway it's just a point i hope people start to pick up upon.

    Who cares! No one wants this insensative woman becoming vice president. I hope she and McCain lose BIG! I think her performance at last night's debate was horrifying. Why? Because she memorized her talking points and she was smiling when Mr. Biden was getting "choked up" over the loss of his wife & daughter and she had the most annoying "wink"! I'm going to say what others want to say but won't "I JUST DON'T LIKE HER!"

    Palin did not save her face last night, and today she has exposed the southern cheeks as she opened her mouth to say someone was not fit to be president "In her mind in her WORLD" what ever or where ever that might be. Anyone that thinks that her performance last night shows she is qualified to be VP REALLY NEEDS TO GET A GRIP.

    Just thinnk of her trying to talk to a real worl leader on serious matters, something deeper than their childs name. can you think how her flirting will be thought of by some that have VERY LOW REGARD FOR WOMEN in the first place. The Saudies do not allow women to drive cars they would not think her cute winks and flirtations to be propper actins and work consider her to be the lowest type of woman. But then maybe. . .

    I love that old release of the tax returns on a Friday afternoon in hopes that all eyes and minds will be focused on the $700 Billion Bailout that just went thru the Senate.

    McCain, gosh darn it, your's such a Maverick.

    CNN~Can you please investigate the voter fraud going on in Ohio from the group, ACORN, and what involvement Obama may have/has. He has ties to that group. Please be FAIR and BALANCED and give people what they need which is UNBIASED reporting!
    Thank you….hope this gets posted

    How can you Obama people keep ignoring the facts about your candidate....one after the other, questionable people and organizations he's tied to! Please, wake up and seriously check out his affiliations before it's too late..one day you'll wake up and the GREAT United States will be something totally differnent and not in a good way!
