It’s been reported that the translation was flawed and in fact, during an interview (Larry King) he said he never said that. So why is this still being pursued both by the administration and the press? Lost in translation is one of the biggest obstacles to peace.

I am irritated at seeing him. All the millions that have been given to him…could it be the main stream media is paid off? I really do not understand the bias and why things are not fair but they sure are not. I am so glad for FOX news. Even though they present Democratic liberal views (which I am sick of), they present Republican (conservative) views as well. At least there is that network. It is awful otherwise. I just disagree with the Democrats (Obama)on the issues important to me (brief ex: abortion & marriage). I do not like him misquoting the Bible. And all the snide, rude, and mocking comments by Democrats to & about Republicans I cannot stand. The topics they focus on and what they ignore. How they accuse Republicans of what they are most guilty of. It is difficult not to get upset. With George Soros, maybe nothing can be done…maybe it is in the bag.

He has no idea how to tell a joke. Steven Colbert’s candidacy should have been allowed.

Unfortunately in today’s world the media drives public opinion and voters fail to get the facts and use reasonable judgment in making their choices. As a senior I question Sen. McCain’s ability to fulfill the requirements of the oval office; and also feel the VP choice will require extreme scrutiny by the voters, as this person may well be President one day. I hope all the candidates come through this campaign in good health and gain much wisdom needed to lead the USA out of our current problems.

Oh the irony.

Re: the above comment, John McCains age is fair game for media pundits and comedians. If he does die during his first term then you are voting for someone whose ideas and principles will not be in affect, but those of whichever ‘Dan Quayle’ replaces him. I wish him the best of health and long life but the comedians are right to be concerned about electing another weak president.

Also, it is a shame that Senator McCain’s age is so ridiculed by so-called comedians — elderly folks are not respected in the USA, as they should be. Wise guys are mostly young — true wisdom, good judgement, character, decency and honor mainly evolve as one grows older in today’s “new” USA — Senator McCain is an example of wisdom, etc — all his attributes, and they are many, should be praised, not be made into stupid, immature jokes, and he should be fairly treated by the news media.

Obama has no judgement, nor is he qualified to be elected to the highest office is this land! Further,Obama is a lawyer and a socialist — lawyer and socialist says enough for me not to support his White House run!
