    Give me a break with the cast on the wrist, you pansy. Try working for a living like the rest of us – people who get busted up and crippled working blue-collar jobs, and can't buy top healthcare like you can, or to fly around on a private jet like you lot.

    The McCains are complete elitists who have no idea what the real world is like.

    I have heard some pundits praise Mccain's sharp and confrontational (hawkish) disposition to very complicated questions/ issues as strength of character.
    I disagree. To me this shows how reckless this man will be as commander in chief. A leader should be very thoughtful and methodical in approach. Never brash.

    if macain was not in the building when the session with obama started then he could have received this information by cell phone from the church. we all know for a fact that he knew the guestions before hand or he could not have answered the question before it was asked. this was probably a plan all along to have him run late just for this reason. how low can this man sink to be elected. i am almost certain cindy mccain was sitting in the audiance earlier as the cameras were scoping out the crowd. i think this needs to be investigated because it goes to the integrity of both candidates.
    this is appearing to be a sham.

    I saw the Obama and mccain forum last might and overall that it was good none of the gotcha moments but I have been reading over the Internet that mccains story about the "cross in the sand" might have been a lie. One of the articles I read states that it came from a Russian prisoner in the gulag named Alexander Solzhenitsyn and also in a detailed report given to US news and world report after mccain came back from Vietnam he did not mentioned that story even though his report was about 12, 000 words long.
