    Since the repubs have no solutions, they put out a distraction "in lipstick".

    Worked, didn't it? That's all we see and hear. Makes me want to puke.

    This nation has problems, and they send us distractions.

    Please post this CNN

    Barack Obama is telling the truth and McCain/Palin can't hide from the truth. McCain and Palin should both be ashamed to show their faces.

    Sarah Palin likes to make a big show out of the fact that she is a hockey mom. Well, my mom is also a hockey mom; me and my two brothers both played hockey. And I will say this for certain: there’s no way in heck that my mom would force a woman to have a child that was the result of rape or incest. No way, no how. Not even the slightest of chances. And if you talk to hockey players, I’m sure most would say the same. We’re a rugged bunch, but, we’re also gentlemen who respect women. I ask any woman who is considering voting for Palin/McCain if she would have, and keep, the baby is she were a victim of rape or incest. Enough is enough (as my mom likes to say). It’s time for Americans to take back their country from the so-called Moral Majority, the infamous Conservative Base. It’s time for Palin to answer her own questions, instead of hiding behind John McCain’s pant leg, and the pants and skirts of the numerous, relentless Republican spin doctors.

    I've heard all my life about signs of the "end of the world." One sign I've always heard is that the Jews would return to their homeland. What did I miss or where is it stated that Alaska was going to be a refuge? what refuge is going to be required when the world ends.....?

    Barack: Keep blasting McCain and remind voters that Palin is the same. Don't waste time and energy letting her draw you away from message. Remember its Bush/McCain/Palin. They are the new lieing machine. They are Mavericks. A Maverick wants the freedom to bounce around and do what they want to do not what has to be done. Let Joe Biden and Hillery and the rest of your campaign staff blast Palin.

  13. Maverick - NO... Flip-Flopper - YES

    I was actually considering voting for John McCain – but that was before he reversed himself on every single important campaign issue.

    McCain is very much like a flag – he points the way the wind blows.

    Same for Sarah Palin. For the bridge / against the bridge, for pork barrel spending / against pork barrel spending.

    They are both doing exactly what the republican handlers tell them to. Pre-written speeches they just read, pre-set party platforms they just repeat, and so on.

    We cannot trust McCain/Palin to do what is right for the USA. They will do what's right for corporate interests.

    "Making stuff up"??!?!?! that's your big argument for why America should vote for you, Senator Obama? I think you'll have to do wildly better than that. I'm stunned that you didn't resort to the old "I'm rubber, you're glue" defense.

    McCain said he knows how to work with people who THINKS like he does, we NEED Obama because he is SMART enough to work with people who don't always agree with him.
