Scenes from the Trail: Palin and Obama cross paths

ALT TEXT

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (CNN) - As Sarah Palin's plane landed in Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, campaign staff and reporters caught a glimpse of Barack Obama's plane taxiing a nearby runway before taking off for Illinois. Obama had made four campaign stops in Philadelphia on Saturday, while Palin was scheduled to attend a local fundraiser and drop the puck at the Philadelphia Flyers season opener.

    BIG DEAL. OBAMA HAS SO MANY LIES ,BUT THE MEDIA DONT COME CLEAN WITH THE COUNTRY. HE LIES WHEN HE SAID HE WASN'T MUSLIM. HE WAS BORN IN KENYA AND WAS GOING TO MUSLIM SCHOOLS UNTIL HE MOVED TO THE STATES. HE WAS LEARNING MUSLIM. HE LIED SAYING HE DIDN'T KNOW BILL AYERS AS A FREIND. HE LIED ABOUT HIS PASTOR. HE LIED ABOUT REZCO .DO YOU WANT ME TO KEEP GOING ABOUT ALL HIS FLIP FLOPS AND LIES. OBAMA ISN'T TO BE TRUSTED ,BELIEVE ME THERE IS ALOT MORE CORRUPTIONS THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW. PALIN HAS THE RIGHT TO FIRE ANYONE SHE WANTS AS GOVENOR. OBAMA HAD THE DNC,MEDIA ETC. SWIFTBOAT HRC OUT OF THE RACE. THATS CUTTHROATING YOUR OWN PARTY ,LIKE HE DID IN CHICAGO. HE ALSO STATED ALL THESE NEGATIVE ADDS FROM THE BEGINING OF THIS RACE. YOU NAIVE MORONS ARE JUST PUPPETS TO YOUR MASTER OBAMA. THERE IS A SAYING THAT STANDS FOR HIM. WHAT YOU DONT KNOW WONT HURT YOU. ANOTHER WHAT GLITTERS IS NOT ALWAYS GOLD. THINK ABOUT IT.

    President Barack Obama will do an outstanding job for all Americans. The latest uproar of John McCain's continual negative campaigning is working against McCain.

    This time around the American voters want a uniter and a changer of the way things have been going under George W. Bush. the past eight years have been horrible for America and its people. That they will not forget.

    Our times ahead under an Obama presidency will be one the brings America's people together to address the problems that we have been dealing with the last several years.

    Thanks to Senator Barack Obama and Senator Joe Biden for giving all of us hopes and an inspiration to do good for this country and the world.
