    HOW IS THAT CHEAP? McCain just said Obama was irresponsible saying he would kill Osama in Pakistan if he had to.

    McCain makes invading another country a punch line. He SHOULD be called on such idiocy.

    No, that is not a cheap shot, it's a liability to have someone that obscene as our president. Please everyone, realize that McCain is not the expert you think he is.

    Schneider, it's neither cheap nor a shot. There is a fundamental need to make sure the president is serious about foreign war. McCain showed neither wit, nor his seriousness when he did that joke.

    so when Obama says something it is not a cheap shot but when McCain says the truth about Obama it's a cheap shot

    The truth hurt! McCain is playing a sudden game of we have to get the people of Pakistan on our side first...now that's a first!

    Bill - be fair – let's not forget that Senator McCain rudely said TWICE that Obama was voted "Miss Congeniality" in the Senate. Come on. If that's not a cheap shot, what is? Obama is diplomatic. That's what we need in a President.

    Almost as cheap as calling in the names of grief stricken families to arouse sympathy from the American public?

    Cheap shot? That was a in response to McCain saying that Obama should never say he will attack a country (Pakistan) When McCain was JOKING and SINGING about attacking Iran and also said that N Korea should be wiped out. That was NOT a cheap shot at all.

    NO cheaper than the hour long pug shots he's sent Obama's way! There's nothing like a good ole little American tit for tat is it?

    PLEASE! Obama would not have had anything to say if Mccain had not done it! How is that a cheap shot. A man running for POTUS does NOT do that! Shame on you Mr. Schneider!

    How is that a cheap shot? It is true. McCain said you have to be careful of your words as President. Obama merely pointed out that McCain was the one to sing songs about bombing Iran.

    HOW does McCain plan to "succeed in Afghanistan" if all the troops are in Iraq? The commanders in Afghanistan say they won't have enough troops to do what they need. HOW are you going to change that, McCain!!!

    Did he not sing the song?
