    Cheryl, regardless of the facts you are claiming that exist about Obama, they are obviously not-as-important as you seem to think they are.

    Besides, whatever Obama has done, any sort of human error that may exist, doesn't compare to the human errors McCain has done in the last several weeks, months, years – no comparison whatsoever.

    This election is about what can be done to improve this country's future – not to rely on hopeless circumstances McCain has shown to have created in the past and present (his negative and scrambled views especially).

    Have a nice weekend.

    Obama does not have ties to ACORN. He never worked with them or trained their volunteers. Evern ACORN has admitted that. This is a smear from the republicans. If we want to talk about voter fraud, lets discuss how democratic voter registration is being purged in the battleground states. This needs to be investigated considering that republicans are known for stealing elections.

    I wager a guess that at her age, Sarah Palin has a higher net worth than Biden at 44. What a farce. PS. Why is she so worried about paying for college. Her oldest two children aren't even in college. Apparently education is not a big issue up in Alaska.

    Wow so you want everyone to forget about the debate now.
    Sarah I wonder how many educated people are there in Alaska.
    How can they elect some one like you as their governer.
    You don't have a clue about any issues in this country. What must be
    the appropriate question to ask you in an interview how about cooking moose stew.

    THEY DECIDED TO SPEND OUR 700 BILLION!!!

    Go to notrashforcash.org. Find out what jerks spent our money. IF IT'S YOUR REPRESENATIVE, THEN CALL AND TELL THEM YOU WONT VOTE FOR THEM. This was a giant rip off and we NEED new congress to fix the problem without throwing Taxpayers into the fire to feed the Cheating Investment Banks need for cash.

    Cheryl, in response to your question about ignoring the facts.......

    Maybe you need to open your eyes and check out the facts on McCain. It has become virtually impossible for the man to tell the truth. He keeps getting called out on his lies but you guys just keep following behind like sheep............so take a good long look in the mirror and then feel free to comment again on Democrats ignoring facts!

    How many of you that demand more from Gov. Palin have given anything to charity? Not just dropping a quarter in a homeless person's coffee cup, but regular, proportional giving. Thats what I thought. Now shut up!

    After Sarah Palin sold the Governor's jet ( not on E bay ) did she use her husband and his plane for Governor business and then use it as a tax write off. Is that why she will not release her tax records?

    She is great!

    She didn't give one cent to Rev Wright unlike some people.

    Mr Obama needs to tell the truth he is not going to give anybody no tax break and I'm a die hard democrat but I will not vote for him all he is doing is lying to American people so he can get elected, The news media is so bias always talking about Palin let me hear you say something about Rev Wright again talk about that. What about the time he slip out and said my muslism faith I didn't hear noone talking about that you people better wake up. Mr Biden has been in the senate as long as Mccain I don't hear them talking about his record.

    Cheryl:

    Facts Cheryl, not inuuendo. Facts. If you want to come on her a spew garbage you had better have some proof to back up your garbage. We are waiting. Where are the facts tying Obama to these bad people and these bad organizations. We'll be patient.

    2 years????? Not acceptable.

    Oh and Cheryl.... Obama's "ties" to all organizations including ACORN has been well documented and his insignaficate "ties" to these groups dont worry the American people. Because these groups are set up to help the American people. Look into McCains ties to lobbyists and huge oil. Look at where most of his donations come from. Obama's donation are a majority in small amounts from everyday American citizens!

  22. Hmmm....

    She filed her 2007 taxes after she'd been named as the VP choice... I'd think something was fishy if she didn't file through the walmart of taxes... H&R Block.

    How could Todd lose $20K in his 401K as Sarah stated but only be making $43K a year.

    The math doesn't add up. Something is missing...and it's not adding up.

    Two years of tax returns, that's great.

    Now let's see McCain's medical records.

    Why have they not been released yet, with a little over a month to go before America votes?

    What is McCain hiding?
