    Well was it to be a "Willy Horton" approach? Swift Boating? Nothing like a republican presidential candidate that can't win on the issues and falling behind in the polls. I remember in 1992 when the Bush machine tried about everything to beat up on Clinton, but the issues were with him...... and
    GH Bush didn't have much to offer except a bunch of personal attacks.

    He was defeated.


    And now we have "a couple of mavericks" who do things differently!
    I think we've seen how different these two are based on the past.

    OBama 08!

    Geeze, I'll be glad when this shit is over...
    I'm fed up with the ineptitude of both candidates - they're both out of touch.
    When might we gain two candidates that actually are in tune and prepared to lead and who can garner votes by ability and not mud-slinging. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Well let you stated in your post when you can't when on the issues and you are tanking in the polls you revert back to type!

    I was so disappointed in Senator McCain's blatant display of lack of respect not only for a fellow candidate but t for his colleague it's going to be very difficult to watch this debate if his manner is more of the same.

    His behavior has just been shameful, especially since he said he would not resort to this type of politics.

    Whose next Michelle? Oh he wouldn’t dare because they are loaded with amo with Gov. Palin she be the Maverick that she is!

    Good Post HndsmKasan.icon_biggrin.gif

    Calling Senator Obama out on character issues he's been running from the entire campaign is not nasty politics -- it's fair politics. I hope McCain nails Obama to the wall tonight in the debate and forces Obama to admit his association with a known terrorist, William Ayers...To force Obama to admit his association with a slick Chicago criminal named Tony Rezco. America needs to know the TRUTH about both candidates...warts and all. This idea that Obama has been playing nicey nicey during the whole campaign is nothing but a bunch of CROCK! You can bet that Senator McCain will also have to answer to his association with the Keating 5 scandal, and he will, and he has, and he, in fact, changed his entire focus as a politician after that scandal to clean up corruption in government. Obama doesn't want this campaign to turn nastier because he knows that America, enlightened, may stop swooning over him. All Obama and his people can say right now is that McCain is "running from the issues", also a CROCK, when anyone who has listened to a McCain speech (or a Palin speech) can see quite clearly that McCain/Palin have been talking and focusing on all the issues. The gloves are off, and it's about freaking time.

    I hope Obama nails McCain against the wall with his mudslinging and seals the election TONIGHT!

    Speaking of dubious associations (by Palin who's attacking Obama for some early acquaintances), here is a 10 minute exploration by Keith Olberman of some Palin associations:

    McCain/Palin started this with her already proved false allegation that Obama "pals around with terrorist" .. Yep they want to "turn the page" on economics so they can lie and smear. It just goes to show that that old keating 5 mentality is still the McSame ..



    Even now he uses his "connections" to keep Palin from answering subpoenas involving abuse of power firing people for personal vendettas .. Two peas in a pod .. I can see that the bush-like abuses of power will continue if he is elected.

    I am not sure what that has to do with being an effective politician, but that is beside the point.

    Senator McCain's biggest barrier to being elected is his predecessor, George W. Bush. I personally think he erred when he chose Sarah Palin, a social conservative, as his running mate. For independent voters I am sure it brought back memories of the past 8 years and the culture wars. He may have won kudos from the Christian right-wing voters, but he has undoubtedly alienated many others.

    The meltdown of the financial system in the US will also be a tremendous obstacle to overcome. Perhaps Senator McCain will win if he can convince undecided voters that Senator Obama is too inexperienced and risky, but continuing many of President Bush's policies must be a tough sell. If he had continued to be the "maverick" that he prides himself on he may have had a better shot right now at the White House.

    I know McCain is out of touch, but give me one example where Obama is out of touch.

    So this mudslinging is supposed to enlighten America? Did you ever think to check into the policies, worldview, and writings of these candidates?

    You are a pathetic excuse for a voter.

    So is Lance Armstrong. But I won't be voting for him either. I ignored John Kerry's heroism when I voted for him. It's about policy positions, world view, and intelligence. Do research.

    You criteria seems to be severly myopic and suggests irresponsibility as a voter.

    Here's a nice little article about the McCain/Palin KKK-style rallies going on. Nice people, those repugnicans. Anyone else read about the hanging from a tree of the effigy of Obama a week or so ago at whatever christian university that was? I'll scout it out unless someone knows off the top of his head where it was.

    McCain and Palin are racist, homophobic scum. Their supporters are rabid, drooling jackals.

    One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."

    Yah, here it is (from PamsHouseBlend.com)



    Obama effigy found in Oregon shows ugly side of Northwest

    Officials at George Fox University in Newberg, Ore., (a school founded more than a century ago by Quakers) said they found a life-size cardboard cutout of Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama "attached by fishing line to a tree." A sign, reading "Act Six reject," was taped to the effigy.
    The cutout was found Tuesday morning and immediately taken down. University President Robin Baker is set to address undergraduates at 11:15 a.m. today.

    "We will not tolerate such displays and condemn it in the strongest terms," Baker said in a press statement Wednesday. "George Fox University is committed to becoming a place that more broadly represents the Kingdom of God - a place where students from diverse backgrounds come together to live out the teachings of Jesus in our world."

    Still in the same press statement, George Fox University said:

    "University administrators do not know who put the cutout up or its intended meaning. The university requests that any information about the cutout be shared with the university's Office of Student Life."

    Administrators don't know what it means? Please.

    The school's Act Six program provides scholarships to student leaders from urban Portland. Many, but not all, are students of color, according the university's release.

    Exactly. He doesn't have the temperament to run this country. If he had turned back once he dropped the bomb from his plane (as you are supposed to do) he wouldn't have been captured. He wanted to stick around and witness the destruction instead.

    Too often he tried to cram an "I" in the word "team", and got in trouble for it.

    I used to feel sympathetic for McCain .. after all his flip-flopping on clean politics, not anymore .. I can see he is just another politician with one goal of power at all costs .. the video below just makes it clear to me what kind of person he is
