    Colorado is one of the red states....please do something to change that.

    You are too young to be giving money to organizations, but maybe you can call and do something....or a yard sign ...or a bumper sticker ....or hand out literature ...or prostitute yourself for votes....that should turn Colorado blue!!! ... icon_lol.gif

    Well the country may be reminded of the negligence of this administration during the RNC in a way we may not all expect.....depending on what happens in the Gulf.

    McCain is in the lead?

    Three weeks ago Obama was beating the pants of McCain in the electoral collage, which is the only metric that matters. Now they are just about tied. We still have two full months of campaigning to go and the polls could go anywhere.
    And speaking of the South, Obama has made Virginia and North Carolina competitive. The South isn't the old Dixie it once was.

    What's most disheartening to me is that Obama has to work hard at all to get votes. With the pathetic failure that has been Republican leadership for the past eight years, both domestically and internationally, the American people should be clamoring for a new direction, a new vision and a new leadership style for our Country. The fact that this race might be close is, in my view, a very sad revelation about the sheepishness and foolishness of the majority of Americans. The masses may control elections but that doesn't indicate that they are intelligent, free thinking or understand the scope of the issues. If Obama looses it will be a dismal reflection of the psyche and character of the American people. If he wins, than I hope the years to come will improve our standing in the world and all of the desperate conditions here at home. What is so hard to see about the fact that all Bush/ McCain policies have been skewed to the ultra wealthy, big oil and loss of constitutional rights?. They offer nothing but fear driven devisive politics that tear American people apart and do nothing to confront the enormous issues of our time! Please look at the issue, look at your own life and the state of affairs in the world. And when you use that awesome power of democracy on Nov. 11th use it to improve our lives, our country and our world. Choose Wisely! Choose Obama!!!!

    What is Sad is that if Obama gets elected that hard earned money I make is going to go to people who don't want to work...I wish there was a Fiscal Conservative Democrat who is also pro-Gay, because Obama is a peice of Taxing crap to me...SO I wil vote Libertarian this time...When will you gays like me realize that One issue voting(ie the Gay issues) is the only way to vote...as a successful business man who also hapens to be gay, I miss Bil Clinton who not only Kept Taxes low for us but also suppoted Gays...I will not vote for the Tax Man Obama...Wake up people!

    So gay rights is a bad single issue but social support is a good single issue?

    Yet another example of the utter arrogance of you liberal-minded dems. Blame, blame, blame, blah, blah blah, it's ALL the Republicans fault, and everyone who voted Republican, and will continue to vote Republican, are all idiot sheep, with absolutely NO clue about the issues. It makes me crazy! Just because a majority may disagree or not share YOUR view, or Obama's view, of the way things are, or how we want our government to be handled, does NOT mean anything other than we simply do not happen to share your opinion -- period.

    I suppose everyone is just going to let this go. I'm a little bothered by the grammar in this posting. In the title, I'm assuming he means "I have a feeling McCain is going to win. In the body of this message, Republicans is spelled incorrectly, and America is not capitalized, nor is November.

    Were you drunk while writing this? I thought the schools in Colorado were really top notch?

    Whether you admit it or not, the world judges all of us everyday by how we speak and how we write. Few things are hotter than a man who writes and speaks well.

    No Threepeats!

    No way! No how! No McCain!!

    He can't even pick a VP on when he says he will. I guess Rove and Cheney told him he can't have who he wanted, so back to the drawing board. It's so sad that he went from Maverick to Sidekick.

    He said a week ago he would announce the VP on August 29th (tomorrow) and I have no doubt that is exactly what he will do.

    I hope he does. Obama's choice of Biden gives us a look into how he is going to frame his argument for the Presidency. McCain's choice will do the same and it will be real interesting to see how the next few months are planned to go.

    McCain will choose a running mate soon. From everything I've read, it appears the choices will be Mitt Romney and Kay Bailey Hutchison......both excellent people.

    For anyone wanting to learn more about KBH, check out her web site - and discover what a great senator she is - how much she's done for Texas and our country. This woman is amazing when you consider her accomplishments, not the least of which is her grasp of oil and energy.

    What struck me about the last two nights of the Democratic convention is that it is the Clintons who are (still) doing the rhetorical heavy-lifting. It was Hillary and Bill who made the solid, partisan Democrtaic argument against a McCain presidency-- the argument Obama should've been making for about three months now. This post-partisan unity schtick is feckless and unconvincing to the electorate; the tight polling reflects that.

    Obama better start making that case tonight because after watching Biden bumble through his speech last night like some sort of used car salesman, it's clear that Biden is fairly irrelevant and not a very good Democratic attack dog at all. It's not good when you announce your running mate and then drop further into the margin of error in the polls.

    The masses wanted Al Gore in 2000. We got GWB instead. And that has been part of the problem, in my view. Suddenly, what the people wanted didn't matter. The people didn't want the President, but we got him.


    Not exactly true -- get over it already!



    NNJfitandbi saidIt is true that the people apparently wanted him in 2004, but by that time he felt no obligation to be truthful to us. Would he have been reelected if he admitted that he lied about the intelligence supporting Saddam's supposed WMD buildup? Or if his most trusted members admitted to outing Plame?


    Bush did not lie, he was given wrong intelligence info -- same info everyone else who voted for the war including Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden were given...again, GET OVER IT! Remember that Saddam Hussein himself was a WMD.

    As for the whole outing of Plame affair, truth be told, I would venture to guess that most Americans don't give a flying fig if, when, how, or by whom the woman was outed.




    NNJfitandbi saidThe bottom line in 2008 is: we'll get whom we deserve.


    THAT we agree on and whom ever it ends up being, we all as Americans need to accept the ultimate result of the election and unite so that the President feels the support of the American people and, hopefully, he can do the very best job possible for the good of a "united" America and a better world.

    Cutting it close to not have made up his mind yet.

    "I haven't decided yet so I can't tell you," he [McCain] told KDKA NewsRadio in Pittsburgh early Thursday. (that's today folks.)

    I wanna know so this match can really get going. (So I'm impatient, spank me.)

    Damn you Media Matters for pointing out the source of the news that said McCain would spill the beans today on his VP pick was got it's info from Fox News!!! I was duped and Rick-Rolled by the Murdock/O'Reilly Broadcast Network.

    Bring on the spankings.

    (A spanking! A spanking!)

    So true, Biden's speech last night was truly the lowest point of the convention. Amazing how these Dems have "selective memory" and how they like to take credit for all that is good, and point fingers at all that is bad. The kicker was how he tried to paint McCain as on "the wrong side" of this or that, and Obama on "the right side" using nothing but exaggerations, half-truths, and even complete distortion of the facts. This from a man who just months ago didn't feel that Obama had the experience to be President.

    As I mentioned above, after the last 7 years we don't need selective memory... but I agree it does seem that way with the republicans, but worse... NO MEMORY..

    Example.. the old "tax and spend" threat about democrats

    Republican reality: spend, deficit spend, tax and spend more
    I'm so glad the republicans are the "red" group.
