    every part of the economy that the repubs have deregulated has failed. mortgage-banking-airlines-saving and loans-and the laws of usary to criminalize the corrupt rise in interest rates-all of it failed-to the ruin of the country.
    greed is good just is a trickle down myth -- ask any mother who has a child in diapers how full the diaper must be before it trickles down–

    McCain or Obama
    Don't matter, we're screwed either way.
    Why is it that the presidential race always comes down to the lesser of two evils?
    The evil you know is better than the evil you don't know.
    At least McCain has been in Washington and has actually co-sponsored bills with that other party,
    I have not agreed too often with McCain and that hasn't changed
    The lib media has not done their job. The people need to have Obama properly vetted.
    Obama claims credit for the bail out. He can have it because it will be his downfall.

    Obama reached a new low today. He described John McCain's response to the financial crisis as "Katrina-like".
    No doubt.....this man is an absolute jerk. He is unfairly harsh, and seem to want to say things that hurt and appeal to a crowd. I would like to think that there were some in that very crowd that disagrees with his middle-eastern like attidude of personal critizism of attacking, where personal attacks on family is acceptable.

    i could never vote for this strutting jerk, who feels that because he is favored by some in the senate, it gives him the right to say anything.

  5. McCain still suffers from PTSD

    The GOP in Washington told McGimmick:

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS! Take your Jive Time Turkey behind and go back on the campaign trail.
