    Cheryl, the list for "questionable people and organizations" that mccain is tied to far outways obamas. It's pretty disgusting that your campaign manager was receiving a 15k a month salary from fannie mae and freddy mac for the last 5 years with the sole job of defending AGAINST regulation. They paid this mccain aide specifically to prevent the governement from regulating them!!!

    This is just last ditch efforts by mccain/supporters to smear the winning ticket. It reeks of despiration

    Hey Cheryl.

    Believe it or not, the GREAT United States is already in the toilet because of McSame and his cronies in Washington. We need Obama to get us out of this mess. But you can ask Palin how she feels about the country. She'll give you a wink, say gosh darn it and tell you some crap about being a hockey mom. When she finishes sputtering her lack of credible information, 4 years will have gone by and we would be back to normal (under an Obama leadership). McCain would be somewhere in a POW camp in his mind.

    And Biden, who is probably has a net worth at least ten times the Palins gave just under $4000 to charities during the last 3 yearsl

    Say it ain't so Joe!!

    Cheryl,

    Please make me aware of these facts about Obama. If you can provide me with the factual accounts of Obama's affiliations I would love to check them. I keep hearing about this, but no one is providing any concrete information. Any websites, articles, financial disclosure forms, anything. I just want to know the facts I am ignoring, and where to find them.

    The link you have posted is damaged when it gets to Adobe. For somereason the amount shown just doesn't sit right, not enough for the both of them. Also when are they going to release medical records? Some one should demand a psychiatric evaluation for mccain and palin.

    Cheryl you need to hush. How about we investigate the Republicans. They have created this mess. Woman like you are the reason America is in the shape it is in today.

  9. I said Thanks, but No Thanks to another 4 years of g.o.p. corruption, arrogance and incompetence

    Cheryl: How can you people keep ignoring the facts about your candidate . . . one after the other, questionable people and organizations he's tied to: george bush – karl rove – dick cheney
    Please, wake up and seriously check out his affliations before it's too late . . .one day you'll wake up and thank God that the GREAT United States will be something totally different (note the use of spell check) – rid of eight years of the stink that is bush and company.

    And she claims they are anxious about college tuition costs in the debate.....? Not likely. Stop trying to pretend you're an average American. You're not fooling anyone.

    Cheryl dear, you would think you guys would have realized by now that your line of argument isn't working. Try something new. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the very definition of insanity.

    Too bad Obama and Biden don't give much to charity. Of course, thats the way liberals are: charitable with other peoples money but using their own for their favorite charity – themselves.

    This woman is beyond belief! Two years? Why not 10 like Joe Biden?
    What's she hiding? Why does she have to wait until days after an interview to come up with an answer? Her folksy attitude at the debate last night was unprofessional and unstateswoman-like. I found it offensive. These are serious times and we deserve candidates that are serious about leading us through them. Sarah Palin is not one of them.

    It was strategically stupid of them to release this today. Now they’ve changed the subject and the already short shelf life of her expectation exceeding performance yesterday (since didn’t fall off stage) is shoret – who hired these people?

    Hey, no financial dealings with convicted felons like Tony Rezko? Turns out there are honest people in this race! BO needs to be investigated now and they shouldn't stop until him and Tony are sharing a cell.

    LOL!!!

    She will only talk to FauxNews now...
    that's okay...

    Palin exceeded expectations only because the bar for her was set inside the rut of a wagon wheel. Biden absolutely dominated on issues and leadership. I encourage everybody to watch the debate again. Clearly, if something were to happen to McCain, Palin would need yet another script to proceed – and as with the last eight years and continuing through the McCain Campaign, it will be written by GOP lobbyists.

    Bottom Line: Our own “Six-pack Joe” moved more uncommitted voters to Obama than Palin did for McCain. Score 2 out of 2.

    I can't wait for the next Presidential debate!!!!!

    Cheryl, really, "You Obama people" ? I think you need to wake up and realize that the GREAT United States is already something totally different, and not in a good way. ...Who remembered to check Bush's affiliations before he was "elected" into office (Halliburton) I'm ready for a fresh face...fresh ideas...and someone that can pivot their head from side to side...

    Cheryl,
    These are desperate lies by desperate people. They see that McCain has been exposed for the Bush-ite he is and are trying to find any excuse they can to explain the rapid descent of McCain followers.
    If you really want to talk about voter fraud, go back 8 years, check out Florida.
