What does he mean “back to”. This country has that spirit now, in the present. Americans have never lost that spirit. Some Polititions seem to have lost it, OBAMA AND HIS WIFE.

I am so tired of this “gotcha” type of editorial comment (It certainly isn’t reporting.)

It’s on the wires in Australia and New Zealand.

If Edwards was disqualified from running due to a sex scandal, then Hillary would have been disqualified or viewed hypocritically. The Media sat on the story until the last day it could be used as news to help the Clintons. The outrage of this scandal can be spun to help Hillary appear as a victim of a process. The Media took sides when it sat on the story by helping Hillary. She was not inevitable.

Sometimes the bias is much more subtle.

However, I’m tired of seeing Obama’s face flash before my eyes every three seconds while looking at the photos. Are you guys trying to have an influence? Who woulda thought. What’s amazing is that he’s hugging McCain and McCain’s face is not really noticable. What a face Obama has – it stands out like a sore thumb. Just a picture of him is like a campaign in itself. Will you please remove these flashing pictures of the presidential candidates? If I want to see them, I can click on the links of my own volition. Let me enjoy the pictures without feeling assulted by this ridiculous campaign.
