    Let's hope he can remember where he is without Lieberman's prompting.

    As a taxpayer, I am enraged over this trip. The Republican party set this trip up to spotlight McCain's diplomatic ability. The country questioned why McCain went with the group. The Republicans set this trip in order to give a boost to him and the party, without him having him tap into his campaign fund. I suppose they will still maintain that McCain will not use public money for his campaign. Right... A dishonest move by this administration and the candidate. McCain has proven in my eyes has proven his administration will be more of the same... This insults the intelligence of the American people. This party robs us any way they can, and continue to get away with it.

    McCain already making the round as if he were the president?
    Well, many of those countries he's trying to "woo" for a never-ending war don't support his vision.

    Cindy I have news for you, It is not very difficult to insult the intelligence of the American People, The following Obama has even after the revelations we have seen the last couple of days is proof of that.

    McCain will win in November because he is the most qualified person remaining and because he is a TRUE PATRIOT who has served his country for the past 40 years.

    He can pick Joe blow off the street and win in November.

    Everyone who still loves Duhbya should definitely vote for McCain. He'll continue all the failed policies of the last seven years.

    God bless you John Mc, we now see how the world would receive him as President, what do you think they would do if Barak H. Obama showed up, we have enough trouble without showcasing experiance in the President's office.

    McCain does not look or sound like a President. He is mentally and physically unfit to be President. Check it out.

    For everyone who is putting down Mccain and think he is ripping you off, you are wrong. McCain is merely continuing to do his job as a Senator and as the Head of his Senate Committe, the dinner he held was NOT paid for by tax payers money, he paid for that portion including hotel room and flight from his campaign. He happens to be able to use is Senate status to show how he is able to be a qualified president. If you think he is ripping off the country then every time Clinton or Obama has gone on any trip that they are going to use as an example of their qualifications should that be paid for by their campaign. No! McCain is continuing his present job because he locked up the nomination, if he wasnt doing anything everyone would be all over him for slacking dont come here and say he is getting special treatment for doing the job he was elected to do!

    What is the deal with McCain and Lieberman? They are really good friends, huh?

    Why did Lieberman change from Democrat to Independent?

    Can a Republican have an Independent Vice President?

    Will the Republican even allow an Independent on their ticket?

    Ever heard of reimbursement? His campaign said he would, so give him a chance. You can rely on the media arms of the Obama campaign, known as MSNBC and CNN to keep the heat on MCCain.

    I wonder if he and his staffers who lobbied for Airbus ensured them that the tanker contract would be wrapped up as soon as he became President.
