    I wonder if McCain gets nervous in Japanese restaurants and shouts "GOOKS!".

    Man, if John McCain was a democrat and made this mistake there would be a swift boat parked up his ass. Perhaps he will beat this tomorrow by closing with "Good night and Satan bless!".

    The double standard is astounding .....

    If Obama - or any democrat did ANYTHING NEAR this looney they'd be drummed out of the campaign

    I mean, to a certain extent, we are 'prisoners' of the Bush years, of the Republican economy, of Christian conservatives and their bonkers outlook on life and how it ought to be lived...

    He's just not a 'fellow prisoner.' After all, he and his party have been holding the keys.

    There was a moment in this week's debate when McCain said something like, "... and Senator Obama's plan to ... it's ... but we really ..."

    I can't quote it exactly because no one has been replaying it, or even commented on it afterward. But it was strange and disconnected. Not disastrous, but not impressive.

    But this "prisoners" substitution is one of the weirder slips I've heard in any speech.

    Yeah because no one is giving him a hard time as a republican...... I will be so glad when this lame ass election is over and I pray that Obama wins so we don't hear the bitching here about how he should have won.

    This economic crisis started when the Clinton administration allowed the banks to give loans to people with bad credit, no credit, or just flat out not qualified. High intrest loans to high risk people that at first was a subprime loan. You can blame Bush for not fixing it but you can't rightfully blame him for starting it when it was started some time around 1995 to 1999. It was only a matter of time that the greedy government and greedy banks got what they deserved.

    Fannie Mae! Started in 1968 as basically a government "bank". 1999 The Clinton Admin. made it so that low income and high risk groups could buy outside their means at subprime rates only to increase property ownership and get this....... PROFITS! Fannie Mae granted these loans then sold most of them to other banks for profit at which the banks wouls earn more by increasing the intrest rates on those mortgages. Hummm what happened? Those people that got the loans at subprime rates were now paying well over prime due to the shady business and chose not to pay for their homes. I do not support Bush at all but Americans need to realize this all started when things were "in the black" under a President that everyone thought was perfect..... sorry to tell you he was not.

    That's why you want him to win?

    Well, that's the strangest reason ever to support a candidate for president. As if our prattle here matters at all!!!


    That is my reason because neither is better than the other. Gays want Obama to win simply because they think he is going to fix America and give more gay rights, aint gonna happen so put him in there because he is just as good as McCain would be. Presidents don't have the power that everyone makes them out to have. All the crying, bitching, and moaning here about this election is just old already.

    May I refer you to the election fatigue thread?

    Actually, the problem precedes Clinton and goes back to Reagan. It was under Reagan that the country began the unstoppable push to deregulate everything. Certainly, Clinton bears some of the blame for continuing the trend, but Bush gets the majority of it. When the Chairman of the S.E.C. that was a Bush appointee admits that his agency simply didn't do their job-- and regulate securities and exchanges -- then it's quite clear: there's blame to go around but the last eight years of short-sighted and free-market ideological policies have brought the fundamentally unsound American economy completely to its knees.

    Regulation: we may not like it, but it is absolutely necessary in order to preserve stability.

    Oh so the years before that hold no responsibility I guess. Also I hate to inform you but it was during the Clinton Admin that this started and there is enough information out there to back that up. Just saying Bush did not start this mess and if Clinton were still in office then he would have to admit they screwed up as well. Fact is a lot of follow up presidents face this when taking over anothers mistakes, just like our next one will face too but I guess if Obama falls flat on his face everyone can still blame Bush.
