    That's right Senator Obama keep your eye on the ball. Don't give in to the trash talk. As Harry Truman used to respond when his supporters would say "give 'em hell Harry" ; "I'm not given 'em hell I'm given 'em the truth and it sounds like hell".

    This will become a major discussion point for the next debate. McCain cannot run away from his voting record and will not be able to counter.

    Obama saying he has a rescue plan is like the writer who has barely finished a book's liner notes claiming he's just authored the great American novel. Just look at his non-record. That says it all.
    Just say Nobama!!

    americans are delusional if they don't think that either candidate wont raise taxes to fix this 8 year nightmare.

    i'm almost ready to crack open a monopoly game and start paying for bills and groceries with the money. it's worth the same as a US dollar.

    if more americans follow my lead, it will send a message to washington and wall street, that money has no power over us.

    GObama......

    It's good to see one candidate at least is still giving indepth policy statements about what he plans to do.

    From the McBush/Piggy camp all you get are generalisations and hateful rhetoric. I hope the 'angry mob' mentality that they are fostering doesn't result is anyone coming to harm.

    I suspect after this campaign is over (and hopefully Obama wins) John McCain will look back at what he has allowed to happen with a lot of regret. He has lost a good deal of the respect that members of either party (and independants) had for him and the longer he travels the road he is on the less self respect he will come out with at the end.

    I am glad make sure McCain can't take parts of your plan and use it for himself.

    I really feel that it is time for a major change in the direction of this country. It will be nice to have an intelligent person in the Whitehouse, surrounded by intelligent advisors.

    As Sarah "abuse of power" Palin says, there is a distinction between the good guys and the bad guys, and it is time for the bad guys to go. Vote for Obama.
