“...that's above my pay grade”

That was Obambi's response to the question "at what point does a baby gets human rights” in last night's televised forum. McCain's response was a quick and calculated “at the moment of conception" …

Even the democRATS are saying McCain was the clear winner in the two hour forum.

I only read five reviews of it and none showed ANY clear winner.

Now the "at the moment of conception..." answer will work for the Evangelical Christians but will have the opposite effect on the Democratic women block that McCain was hoping to siphon away from Obama who had originally supported Hillary. It will set their opinion in concrete as two said at lunch today "great, another old white guy trying to tell me about MY body." That was from a confirmed Hillary supporter who was very much tossed up about Obama.

McCain threw political red meat to the Merkin Taliban and got the responses he wanted. Asked about the wisest people he knew and he listed General Petraeus--WTF? How much more political can you get with a question about your personal philosophical outlook. Any lingering respect I've been harboring for the man has officially left the building. What a tool

Drill! Drill!! Drill!!!

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

Obama deflects Swift Boat question
By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 56 minutes ago

RENO, Nev. - Democrat Barack Obama met Sunday with Texas oil baron and longtime conservative activist T. Boone Pickens to discuss strategies for developing alternative energy.

The presidential hopeful praised Pickens as a "legendary entrepreneur" and deflected a question about the billionaire's role in helping to fund a television ad campaign that undermined John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic nominee.

"You know, he's got a longer track record than that," Obama told reporters when asked about Pickens' association with the ads by a group called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. "One of the things I think we have to unify the country around is having an intelligent energy policy. ... That's what we're going to be talking about."

During the 2004 presidential campaign, Pickens spent $3 million to help bankroll the Swift Boat organization, a group tied to supporters of President Bush that ran television ads questioning Kerry's record as a swift boat commander during the Vietnam War. The ads were believed to have damaged Kerry in several battleground states, contributing to his narrow loss to Bush.

Today, Pickens is bankrolling a much different kind of campaign. A critic of U.S. dependence on oil and a champion of wind power and other alternative energy forms, he has vowed to spend $58 million to promote his "Pickens Plan," which calls for the U.S. to generate 22 percent of its electricity through wind and other sources.

The high cost of energy has emerged as a central campaign issue between Obama and his Republican rival John McCain. Pickens met with McCain in Colorado last week to discuss his plan and requested a similar meeting with Obama. The two men talked privately for about 45 minutes, campaign officials said Sunday.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

^ It's nice when a formerly mentally confused and morally conflicted right winger steps over to the other side, welcome to the Green Left, Mr. Pickens. Since you suffer from the same, perhaps there is hope for you.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Yeah, like justifying mass murder of children in Iraq.
