    I agree with the New York Times–McCain/Palin have waged the most untruthful, arrogant, misleading campaign in my lifetime and I have been around a while. Both of them in office would be worse even than Bush.

    It is also appalling to hear that Cindy McCain says Obama has conducted the worse campaign in history. NOT TRUE. He has led a very disciplined, down-to-earth, and people-oriented campaign and has only had to go negative at times to keep the evil swift-boaters from destroying his image. What would she know about the struggles of ordinary people. Sickening to think about.

    and the introductory speaker for them twice referred to "Barack Hussein Obama." These candidates are intentionally allowing demeaning and inflammatory references to Senator Obama, which speaks volumes about their lack of character or suitability for public office.

    John McCain will live for a long time. After the filthy campaign he's been throwing, I refuse to touch that man.

    As an Obama supporter I am appaled at the insults people use against McCain – just as I'm appalled about Republican insults. It's hard to argue the other side is ugly when you're spewing negativity.

    Please, please stop covering that rabble-rousing drivel being spouted by McPalin as newsworthy. We've heard it all before – about how Obama is un-American, how his pastor was un-American, how is middle name is un-American – and we didn't believe it then and we won't believe it now. Turn your cameras off, or send them somewhere where news is being made, like the boardrooms of the corporations of greed who are going to reap a harvest of bail-out money.

    CNN just covered a speech Obama gave, and now McCain is speaking in Pennsylvania, and it's nowhere to be found other than online. Why aren't you covering it? When the liberal biased media elects Obama, I hope someone will look back and say that McCain really wasn't treated fairly by the press throughout this election. You have an incredible power to influence voters by the way you cover the election, and if this afternoon is any indication, you are in Obama's camp. Meanwhile on Fox, McCain's speech and Obama's speech will have been broadcast this afternoon.

    Waste of time and money. All those who contributed to this party which is not in keeping with its mandate should have donated to charity.

    McCain reminds me of the spoiled little rich kid crying on the playground "everybody is picking on me".

    That expectant seventeen year old has been standing on her feet behind Palin for the last one hour all in the name of photo op. Not very healthy. Some get her a seat.

    Are republicans really that dumb? USA does not drill baby drill. Oil companies drill baby drill. Then oil companies sell baby sell. Can one republican tell me how allowing the oil companies to drill baby drill advances our energy independence as a country.

    A few days of solo campaigning in solidly red states and all of a sudden Palin is back on McCain's incredibly short leash...I don't think I've ever seen a Presidential candidate so afraid of letting their VP candidate do their job...Mrs. Palin, you can forget about an increased role in Congress if you're lucky enough to be VP, I seriously don't think McCain well even let you leave the White House without him...

  17. Too Late, Vote goes to Obama

    McCain and Sarah had played a dirty campaign from day one. How can we trust them to lead this country. McCain is just an old angry fart and Sarah is a racist Barracuda. What are these people teaching kids in this country, that it is ok to be disrespectul to other culture and races. They are not or will be a good role model to peole of this country.

    They should APPOLOGIZE to OBAMA for their disrespect and name calling, that goes to the POLICE OFFICER IN FLORIDA!
