    I have to say, I find this election to be very interesting. I`m a liberal republican, and right now, I`m leaning toward voting for Obama. Crazy as that might sound. Granted, Obama is a more conservative democrat than a lot of his party... and McCain is more liberal... but nonetheless. Obama shows a tremendous amount of character thus far in not launching into an attack ad on his opponents. He chooses to bring it back around to issues at hand, and wants to force the republicans to do the same. That wins a good many points with me, political tactic or not.

    So if he`s been called worse on the basketball court, then this shouldn`t bother him :/

    McCain and Palin may not have addressed issues for the middle class, but it`s no better than Obama and Biden addressing every special interest group out there and assuring each and every one of them deserves change (still undefined).

    Oh, and hope. Don`t forget hope!

    ..or maybe he hasn`t given any policies yet either!!! It`s seems you`re forgetting that. Obama said today that the surge in Iraq went better "than anyone could have imagined"...so really...that`s one more thing he changed his mind on. I`m glad he likes to play basketball...it maks him seem so cool!!*swoons*

    I like Obama. Sure, he doesn`t have as much experience as his opponent, but he focuses more on social issues I care about. And yes, this "Change" he`s been talking about is rather vague, but in the state of things these days, I think I`m willing to take a chance on change rather than what`s familiar. If he gets elected and doesn`t deliver, then I will be the first to admit that I`m wrong. Until then, I`m just going to sit back and watch these verbal smackdowns going back and forth.

    Palin is easily a political natural. Scandal pops up (which let`s face it, happens for every politician at one point or another) and she handles it well. At her speech at the convention she had her husband holding her young baby with Down`s Syndrome, I mean that`s not someone easy to hate.

    Palin rudely addressing Obama isn`t something the left hasn`t done, they just did it with more tact. "George McCain, freudian slip" The only reason McCain hasn`t been bashed like that is because he`s a guy who spent 5 years of his life being tortured by the Vietnamese for his country. It`s hard to come of respectable after bashing someone like that.

    Politics: Just a circus of bullsh*tters that want your votes and your money. No matter who you vote for, this country`s government will always be sh*t. A single person can`t change this country. It`s funny that these people running for President think they can. Well, in reality, they know they can`t, but are damn good at making the fool public believe they can. Once the voters start voting on candidates for the issues, and not what the media is biased towards, then there might actually be some good to come out of our government.

    "No matter who you vote for, this country`s government will always be sh*t. A single person can`t change this country."

    Your right, a single person can`t change this country... it takes a hell of a lot of people. Everyone complains about politics and the government, but forget that we citizens have been given the freedom to change things ourselves. If we didn`t then women and Africans Americans still wouldn`t be able to vote.

    So yes, people need to vote on the issues, but everyone needs to remember that if we don`t like what`s going on then we need to raise hell. For example, there`s no reason that we should have a president in office with a 30% approval rating. In a utopian America, we would all be the fourth branch of government.
    sigh... I know I having lofty ideals here...

Yep, 12 percent unemployment in some regions of the states along with the waves of undocumented workers taking money out of the country. Soldiers recovering from Iraq being stuck in rat invested rooms with feces and mold all over the beds and floors, what a great 8 years, give me 4 more because I believe that flag waving do nothings are more patriotic than people with ideals and morales.

    Not true, Obama has experience in Washington and in politics, plus is a great speaker with a clear agenda and his campaign was spent telling the truth and outlining his plan, rather than mostly trashing the other party. His only weak point, foreign policy is represented strongly by Biden, who is just as great a politician and speaker as he is. Now look at McCain and Palin. She has way less experience than Obama, has NEVER had any Washington experience, does not know how to control the military, and since McCain has a history of medical illnesses, she could end up his VP, should he get elected. I don`t want someone like that leading our country. Hillary was experienced and if she won over Obama, I would have voted for her. Palin on the other hand, is not ready to co-lead the country.

    "And he wants to send more troops to Afghanistan..
    I think we`ve already lost too many American Soldiers!"

    I know, I agree with you on the last part. We`ve lost too many troops in a war with another country we didn`t need to occupy in the first place!!

    There were never any Weapons of Mass Destruction. Bush lied, and thousands died.

    McCain will continue to occupy this country, and more troops (and some of my friends who are in the armed forces) will have their lives put in jeopardy for a pointless war that was started, and with McCain will continue to occur.

    Keep in mind we were over in Afghanastan originally because we were looking for Bin Laden. The mastermind behind 9-11. He is the reason we were over there. That is a reason to send people THERE, not Iraq.

    Innocent American lives were lost that day. Bin Laden needs to be captured under the leadership of a president and vp with a logical agenda, that can see an end to that operation once the mission is accompl

    It`s amazing that people can be stupid enough to think putting their hand over their heart during the anthem actually MEANS anything. These same idiots turn a blind eye to the 2 wars we started (while the rest of us watched them become quagmires), ignore the rising unemployment, China owning our future, the frenzied borrowing banks have been doing in the last 10 months, the superstitious stem-cell prohibition and the rest of the idiotic mountain of monkey-moves by the conservative a$$holes ruining the country. They are pocketing the profits with one hand while they have their other over their heart during the National Anthem. Crooks leading feebs.

    I`m going to have to be rude this time... quick_sand8 is either a complete idiot, or has been tasked by someone to help spread disinformation.

    The question of the still photograph, (It wasn`t a video, so you`re LYING quick_sand8) that showed Obama without his hand over his heart was taken a split second before the Pledge of Allegiance began. (it wasn`t the National Anthem, sorry quicksand_8 you`re lying again)

    All subsequent photos show Obama WITH HIS HAND OVER HIS HEART.

    This "controversy" was cleared up by most major media outlets MONTHS ago, and hasn`t been mentioned since.

    Leave it to an obviously uneducated, ignorant person to post lies that have already been debunked.

    Next she`ll try to tell us he`s Muslim.

    Yeah, agreed, pizzabob18.

    So when we went to Afghanistan and Osama escaped to Pakistan we didn`t go follow him did we? No, no, no... Lets go to Iraq because that`s REALLY what they wanted to do all along.

    Also by doing that we became very goooood friends with Pakistan, they were an important ally in this "war on terror". So we were never going to be able to go into their tribal regions and go after who we started out after or they would be mad! They said, we`re taking care of it you don`t need to come in! Too bad their military would never be able to realistically do it.

    Oh but look now, Musharraf just resigned and the US is going into Pakistan now even though they said their main target is not Bin Laden. But they are in the area where he is hiding so, hmmmm. Right before this election who do you think is going to be found...

    Look it was our plan all along! The republicans did a great job and we caught Bin Laden!

    Why didn`t you do that 7 years ago?

    Just an observation. Every thing you know about either candidate comes from the media. The maverick,John McCain, is a title given to him by the `liberal` media. The last time this guy was a maverick was 2000. Since then he has voted with the administration more so that not. That mean agreement on policies, which by the way have been failures. One last point, 5 years in a POW camp doesnt mean you will be a better president, but 30 years in washingtion means you will be a worse one.

    Nice catch on those tax figures bliznik. I`m got caught up thinking the other ones were right. Should have known better.

    Nevertheless, those are proposals. And I think we have all learned to never to trust politicians as far as we can throw them. I don`t expect Obama to live up to his tax promises, not with what he wants the government to control.

    Dakkar, that is very true. Proposals are exactly that...PROPOSALS, and Congress implements taxes, not the president, so cooperation needs to be paramount in order for either President`s "change" to occur.

    One thing I`d like to see from BOTH candidates is a frank discussion on reigning in government spending. If Obama wants to balance the budget with his proposed tax plans, he`ll need to cut an improbable amount of government spending. If McCain wants to balance the budget with his proposed tax plans, he`ll need to cut an even greater amount of government spending. Talking about taxes w/o talking about spending gives us a viewpoint that`s highly attenuated from reality.

    You`re right bliz, it needs to be cut back. I haven`t listened to Obama much and I imagine he has said to cut back government spending. I know last night McCain said he would cut it back, but never said how.

    I think it evens out, McCain is calling for more tax breaks, meaning less revenue for the government. But I think Obama is planning on more government programs, and if those haven`t been included in his tax outlook then he`s got another thing to worry about.

    I think this is the most important issue. Reeling in the government and pulling tight the reigns. Doing so will help the economy. Then its up to other economic programs to complete the heal.

    " plus is a great speaker with a clear agenda"

    Great speak= Yes
    Clear Agenda= What????

    You mean his, im completely against drilling to im for drilling as one of the options
    He changes his mind every week. If I were Biden, I`d want my nomination in writing.
    "since McCain has a history of medical illnesses"
    His current bill of health is completely clean.

    2) EU`s standard is 60%, we are at 70%. Japan is at 14 trillion and 180%.
    3) Largest Debt my ass.

    "WOW Nazarene, you really think those are correct tax statistics?!?!"

    Once again, people don`t understand the tax policies of both parties. Republicans hardly ever raise taxes. They are about the individual. Democrats raise taxes. They are about society. Those are factual. Democrats dont raise the rich`s tax, they raise EVERYONE`s tax.

    And those website you gave. Could they be more liberal bias... seriously, the Washington Post?

    "I think we`ve already lost too many American Soldiers!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Then doesn`t it seem logical for you to want to vote for Obama? McCain is the one who supports another "100 years" in Iraq.

    If he`s from Chi-town he might`ve. But i`ve never seen him on AND1

    "Then doesn`t it seem logical for you to want to vote for Obama? McCain is the one who supports another "100 years" in Iraq."

    He wants the 5 year plan. If you want to buy into the whole hundred years in Iraq than we have been over 60 years in Germany.

    "He wants the 5 year plan. If you want to buy into the whole hundred years in Iraq than we have been over 60 years in Germany."

    My statement was an intended overexaggeration, but my essential point is that McCain is a known warhawk. I don`t like the idea of a (Republican) warhawk controlling the country`s armed forces in a time where we need (more than anything else) diplomacy.

    More of the same is not what I want. As an independent, I can say I`m wary of Obama and his "let`s change America!" optimism. His rousing speeches and beautiful promises look 1) expensive or 2) empty to me.

    But I`d rather vote for him than McCain. McCain is just another dusty conservative and a carbon copy of the last 8 years. And frankly, Sarah Palin scares the Buhjesus out of me. I would never want her to be anywhere close to the Presidency.

    Primetimekin, glad to see that you`re able to pick and choose soundbytes from speeches, just like you`re picking and choosing facts.

    First, both Obama and McCain flipped on offshore drilling. We only hear about Obama`s flipping in the media b/c McCain has a few *cough* *cough* more negative attack ads out there than Obama does.

    Second, who measures by public debt? If you measure by public debt, even CHINA has an 18% public debt! Public debt is pretty natural and part of any fostering economy. I believe what MechBFP was trying to talk about is EXTERNAL debt, which causes money to flow OUT of the country.

    Third, saying that not raising taxes is about the individual while raising taxes is about society is a bit simplistic don`t you think? You`re also saying that "Democrats" raise everyone`s tax. Could you point to some factual statistic that states that Obama`s going to raise everyone`s taxes? I`ve never seen a traceable report, even from FoxNews, that reflects that

    Fourth, so since the Washington Post has a liberal bias, that makes its reported facts untrue? That`s a bit of a...stretch. Are you also saying that the Tax Policy Center also produces false data? I`m asking for actual data that contradicts the sources I cited, not some guy saying, "Because a liberal wrote the report, it must not be true!!!"

    I love it when people prove me wrong, b/c then I learn something new, but accusations without substance is a step above name-calling.

    I don`t really trust Obama, all his words are pretty vague. It`s just the same `hope/change` thing without any real back bone to it.

    Oh well, my opinion doesn`t really matter anyways because I live in CA where 90% of the people are Democrats (Thank you Berkeley and San Francisco), and I`m not old enough to vote anyways. -sigh-

    yes, let`s vote for the lady who has five kids (it is EXTREMELY disturbing to me to think that she has been, eh, doing it with her husband into her 40s), one of which is 17 and pregnant. jesus christ, she can`t even teach proper parenting.
    and adilicious, poor you! you have to live with all those terrible democrats...ugh, republicans are all rich high class people. i hope mccain does NOT get elected...
    he`s like, george bush but a bit older.

    Can people please support their claims that McCain is like Bush?

    Hell, going into preliminaries McCain was disliked by conservatives for being too moderate. He is a lot different than Bush because he`s smarter than Bush. And I`ll bet dollars to donuts he`ll prove it once he`s in the White House.

    I saw "The Jed Report" on the bottom left hand corner and thought it said "The Jedi Report." I`m pretty sure that makes me a geek...

    Exactly. Bush did this bad as a complete idiot, now imagine someone with the same ideals, but who can plan things intelligently.

    Yeah, we shouldn`t be afraid of him becoming president.

    Taxes have to be raised, regardless of who wins, because we`re in a poo load of debt.
