As I saw it, she made a fool of herself and the McCain campaign with her inaccurate comments. Desperate is the only way to describe the republican ticket and pathetic is the word to describe Cindy McCain.

After he raises taxes on those who supply jobs. When they no longer invest in industry which produces jobs. As for honor, John McCain has more honor and character in his little finger than Obama has in his entire body. Wake up we need change yes but not that promised by Obama.

This is a disgusting statement against our men and women fighting for our country. I really hope you don’t live on US soil and are able to reap the benefits and freedom of a US citizen. I also hope that the divisive talk and anger shown by so many people will subside once this election is over. I’m voting for the man whose character I trust more – McCain. But I will give the benefit of the doubt and support Obama if he wins until his actions prevent me from doing so. (Made me laugh when someone said please dont call him Hussein. That request should go to Obama so he can take it off his birth notice.)

No weapon forged against you [ Barack Obama] will prevail, and you [ Barack Obama] will refute every tongue that accuses you [ Barack Obama] . This is the heritage of the servants [ Barack Obama] of the LORD, and this is their [ Barack Obama] vindication from me,” declares the LORD. – Isaiah 54:17

” I [ God ] will send my terror ahead of you [ Barack Obama] and throw into confusion every nation you [ Barack Obama] encounter. I [ God ] will make all your [ Barack Obama] enemies turn their backs and run.” – Exodus 23:27

The Lord will rescue me [ Barack Obama] from every evil attack and will bring me [ Barack Obama] safely to his heavenly kingdom. – 2 Timothy 4:18

11 For he will command his angels concerning you [ Barack Obama] to guard you [ Barack Obama ] in all your ways; 12 they will lift you [ Barack Obama ] up in their hands, so that you [ Barack Obama ] will not strike your [his] foot against a stone. 13 You [ Barack Obama ] will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you [ Barack Obama ] will trample the great lion and the serpent. – Psalm 91:11-13

I have given you [ Barack Obama ] authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you [ Barack Obama ]. – Luke 10:19

It’s time for the American people to get it right and NOT vote for McCain-Palin, instead vote for change. It’s time for this country to turn the page and seek a new and better future for ourselves and our children.It’s time for REAL change in Washington, it’s time to elect Barack Obama for president !

Obama-Biden are the wiser and stronger team to solve the crucial challenges we have in this nation and abroad !

Amen.

The worse being Sarah Palin’s pals–The ALaska Independence Party. This is an anti american organization that wants to severe all ties with the US. Palin cant deny that she pals around with its members–her husband was a member until 2002. I cant understand why the only media discussing Palin’s anti america pals are blogs and MSNBC Olbermand and Maddow. Yet, all of the media is discussing Ayers–which has been debunked over and over again.

Today, Robert Kennedy on Huffington Post discusses the Palin/Alaskan Independence connection and he asks the same question–why is the media ignoring this story.
Youtubes showing the members bragging how their candidate, Palin, was elected governor–and all they had to do was put a candidate on the republican ticket and have a win. This should be a huge concern to all Americans. McCain is aware of the connection and has shown horrible judgement in chosing Palin.

One thing for sure, McCain is not a Maverick–he nothing more than a typical politician and not very good at that.

When debates happen, each time they say… I voted for this and he voted against this… go view the website, http://votesmart.org/index.htm and you will see that usually both candidates are lying about what one another voted for…

They know talking about the issues hasn’t worked. Now they point fingers, make accusations and use their spouses. I had thought Cindy McCain had some class. She doesn’t.

They want the “truth” from Obama. How about the truth from Palin? Troopergate? Gifts for her and Todd? The millions of ear marked dollars she’s requested and spent? The bridge to no where? The pipeline to no where?

What people should really fear is Sarah Palin as vice president, and the real possibility that she could become president. She is just another Dick Chaney.

A person who promotes the killing of wolves from low flying planes.

She strikes Terror in my heart.

McCain. Have you ever been evaluated for, or treated for PTSD? If so..What was the result? If not..WHY NOT??? You my dear dear sir were locked in a cage for 5 years. You seem to live your life with rage and through the prism of Vietnam. Is it me, or do we all know deep down that this is a shattered man? Now this sad desparate war hero wants the presidency and with it the nuclear codes..THE HORROR!!!

Joe Biden likes to try and say McCain voted against funding the troops by voting against a timetable bill that also included a troop funding “earmark” or maybe we can call it a funding bill that also included a withdrawal timetable “earmark”. Biden lied according to the legislative record that I saw, as McCain did not vote. Joe Biden lies again. It is reported that McCain, however, did ask the president to veto the timetable bill but Biden lied and said McCain voted against the bill.
http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/ro ll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?con gress=110&session=1&vote=00147

McCain is quoted as saying, “The bill also appropriates $21 billion more than the President request, at a time when, given the budget deficit, we should be attempting to limit – not increase – government spending. The legislation contains earmarks for programs that are neither wanted nor needed, and whose only effect will be to increase the burden on U.S. taxpayers.” – John McCain

But aside from that a timetable bill is not a bill that is funding the troops, a timetable in this case was a stipulation upon troop funding that incites the mission of the troops to fail. Changing the mission is one thing but keeping the troops funded is a completely separate issue that effects the safety of the troops and civilians as well as the integrity of the mission which the United States has undertaken.

Troop funding is funding of the mission the troops were sent to undertake by their governmental leaders, leaders including Joe Biden.

A “timetable” was not funding for the troops but rather stipulations consisting of “if and only if” demands by manipulative congress-people who don’t have any alternative mission solutions and who don’t want to put the work in to sell an alternative mission plan to gain a majority of votes in congress to change the mission. People like Obama instead act out to hijack funding and convey “then if we don’t get what we say then we damn the U.S. troops to harm and death and the American mission to failure by refusing to fund the work they were sent to undertake by the president and U.S. congress”.

Of course Joe Biden also is the same man who said during the democratic primary that Obama was not qualified to be president and Biden also previously made statements saying John McCain was a good man and implied John McCain would make a great president. So I guess goes to show Biden will say a lot of contradictory things about people to get a promotion.

And it stinks.

Hillary Clinton’s exact endorsement of Palin, and the unseemly way McCain seems to have taken a leaf out of Hillary’s book, by smearing Obama, is far too obvious for any intelligent person not to notice.

I feel really angered for Obama by the way lies and mendacity are being used in what has become a race to the whitehouse strewn with dirty tricks and empty accusations.

I have faith that the great American people will see through the disrespectful behaviour of McCain, and through his vapid and superficial neo VP.
