    That's not a cheap shot. It's true. McCain is the guy who jokes it's funny for Iranians to die from smoking...

    Obama sinking back down to his ussually tricks. This resurgent Taliban is coming out of Pakistan not in Afganistan.

    It's not cheap if it is true and paints a picture of who the candidate truly is

    How is it a cheap shot? McCain has been very vocal about how he would attack Iran and Korea yet criticized Obama for the same. McCain deserved to be called out on that one.

    You're wrong. McCain is the one that said presidents should be careful what they say. It was brilliant of O to remind us how imprudent and ridiculous McCain is.

    Did he sing songs about bombing Iran? Yes. Therefore it isn't a cheap shot. He's insane.

    Did he not talk about bombing Iran?

    Obama has done nothing but take cheap shots since he started running.

    What's cheap about talking about what McCain actually said? He was recorded!

    Why won't McCain look at Obama when he is making statements about him that are supposed to be "matter of fact"??????

    Schneider, you're coming off as very biased. How was that a low blow? McCain made the choice to sing "bomb, bomb, bomb Iran." If anything, I think Obama needs to be more aggressive.

    How is that cheap, it is a fact complete with video! But more importantly, it is a testament to his erratic judgment
