This is very much like 2000 or 2004.
We are going to reelect George Bush wearing bright red lipstick and will enjoy four more years of economic slowdown and more US soldiers being killed.

And so we get 8 years of George W. Bush, remember him? The only functioning democracy according to Thomas Jefferson is an informed democracy. We get the government we deserve… However, Obama is finally exposing the parade of lies, fear, and anger in St. Paul (holding “Service” signs while mocking Obama’s community service … that’s class). And no mention of issues, because as the article above states: too much information. Lying is cheaper anyway. Those who obtain power through such means have no allegiance to the People or the Constitution.

Phil Gramm and his wife’s Enron connection? How about the fact that McCain has changed campaign managers three times in the past 19 months. Or, that he changed his campaign’s theme from “Experience” to “Change” at the RNC.

That’s either a desperate “win at all cost” strategy, or he thinks the American voting public is simple and slow witted. Which one are you?

i vaguely remember this happening at something called ‘public schools’

SARAH PALIN IS NOT READY TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

The difference is —- only one of them is running for the job! GO JOHN McCAIN!

WHY IS OBAMA VETTING THE “VICE PRESIDENTIAL” CANDIDATE? IS HE NUTS?

I find it interesting that Obama NOW regrets not serving our country — NOW he wants to explain his “above my paygrade” remark at Saddleback. I guess he couldn’t think fast enough without his teleprompter and 300 advisors. What about his voting for infanticide? He will say and do anything to get what he wants — Sorry, but it’s too little — too late!

OBAMA HAS 30 LAWYERS IN ALASKA VETTING GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN. HE’S RUNNING AROUND LIKE A CHICKEN WITH HIS HEAD CUT OFF! WHY IS HE AFRAID OF THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR “VICE PRESIDENT”?

THE DNC AND BIASED MEDIA NEVER VETTED HIM — IF THEY HAD, HILLARY WOULD BE THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE. HE’S COMING ACROSS LIKE A BLUNDERING IDIOT!

Gov. Palin has more executive experience than Obama or Biden since she has been a councilwomen, a mayor and is now the governor of the State of Alaska along with being the head of the Alaska National Guard; whereas Obama has been a Community Organizer, got into the Illinois State Senate by disqualifying his democratic and republican opponents and thus ran alone for the seat. Then he became a Senator in Congress. Since that time, he has spent most of his time ‘running for president’! IF HE CAN’T DO HIS SENATE JOB — HE SURELY CAN’T LEAD OUR COUNTRY!

Governor Palin brings a lot to the table! Most of our Presidents in recent history have been governors and not senators so when you compare the Democratic ticket, all you have is Senators who never ran a business or a city or a state. At least McCain gained some of his experience while in the military. Remember Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush were all governors when they became president.

OBAMA’S PHILOSOPHY IS: “DENY AND DESTROY”. Don’t pay for your mistakes. Deny ever hearing or seeing anything. If you don’t want to pay for your mistakes, just get rid of them — or blame someone else!

WE ONLY HAVE A FEW MORE WEEKS TO LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA REALLY IS. HOW MUCH MORE “HIDDEN BAGGAGE” DOES HE COME WITH? HE IS TOO RISKY!

I’M VOTING FOR THE HONORABLE JOHN McCAIN IN NOVEMBER!
