Comments on: No Republican tricks at polls: McCain camp http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/11/01/no-republican-tricks-at-polls-mccain-camp/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Denny Mack http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/11/01/no-republican-tricks-at-polls-mccain-camp/comment-page-1/#comment-384227 Mon, 03 Nov 2008 14:36:15 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/?p=13296#comment-384227 The biggest shot McCain has is that Democrats don’t bother to show up at the voting booth. They talk a good game, but the Republicans are the ones who actually pull the levers in an election. Therefore, McCain supporters should take some heart from that fact. I think Democrats are simply more apathetic. McCain has a real shot at winning. It all depends on who casts an actual ballot. Good luck, United States citizens!

Today I saw an Obama sign that had red paint spilled on it. And then I had my McCain signs taken out of my front yard.
Peace to all, we can get past this.

Signed,
Peaceful McCain Supporter

IT is as they believe only ignorant people vote.

We need a president with the guts and intelligence to live up to the oath. The idea that Americans have a choice with Obama and Mccain is absurd. Both Obama and Mccain represent traditional Washington economics much more than our Constitution.

I’d say the Pennsylvanians should be aware of this.

Any voter who reasonably suspects such tactics being used should be encouraged to contact an Obama polling representative (attorney).

What will they resort to next?
How can they say that “people of color” could be targeted, especially when he has a daughter that is a person “of color”???
Didn’t they agree that family was off limits? Couldn’t this be considered a possible shot at his daughter?
Will they next go after beauty queens??

The information is, of course, false. That is just one example — there are others. Not all Republicans will stoop to these dirty tricks, and some Democrats are just as bad. Stop automatically defending people who act badly just because they will vote for your candidate. If you see voters being blocked by either side, yell loudly!

Not one of these sleazy, neo-con Bush/W-Rove types. Give me Reagan, give me Bush Sr., or give me Obama.
