Palin was chosen by McCain via instant message? This is funny: http://www.mydamnchannel.com/Daily_Grace...

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

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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-

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.

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

"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.

"Has Obama ever actually played street basketball?
thats what I'm interested in knowing."

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.

"Nazarene, you can expect taxes to increase when your country is stupid enough to put its self into the largest deficit ever in the world."

God, you have no idea what your talking about.
1) You dont measure by debt you measure by public debt.
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?

"quick sand8, How do you expect Obama to get more experience if we don't give him a chance to earn it?"

We do give him a chance... as senator. Thats like Fancylad picking a Mod that joined a few weeks ago because he posted 1 or 2 really interesting links.

" 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.

"Anywho, am I the only one that thinks IAB is pretty biased towards the left side?"

I wouldnt say biased, I would say.. it gets more hits from that.

"Next she'll try to tell us he's Muslim."

You mean he's not??? (jk)

Obama, Reid, Pelosi...all socialists.

Socialized medicine will kill our economy.

Government needs to pay down our debt, then be cut to the bone. No more entitlements like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security...they're eating us.

I don't care who it's for or against.

All political stuff on IAB gets rated a 1 by me and that's only because there isn't anything lower.

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.

i can see how people in high school or college, still living at home with their parents, with little or no monthly bills would be drawn to obama.

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.
