^ Thank you. And isn't it interesting, with Palin reading every news media publication in existence ("all of them"), that she hasn't gotten this message yet?

It is just more evident that the media in this country is the fifth column.
All of those were covered, both in the press and by McCain advertising.

By the way, regarding #1, were you referring to Obama or McCain and his CURRENT Campaign Manager who made millions lobbying for F/F to insure regulations were not imposed?

Regarding #2, do you consider G. Gordan Liddy repentant? He did conspire at the highest levels to bring down the Republic with fixed elections.

Regarding #3, were you referring to much of the Christian Right who still believe that White, Anglo-Saxton Protestant is the only true American?

Regarding #4, learn economics before typing.

Regarding #5, Is there a point to that comment?

Regarding #6, He is, unfortunately correct.

Regarding #7, any proof there skippy or just that swirl of swiftboat rumors again?

just "lapse into the mists" will do fine. Adding yellow to mists seems redundant at this point.

Ties to several thousand individuals in those organizations who contributed to his campaign in small "doses" that have identified that they work in the two corporations. Vs. having a lobbyist who was still drawing compensation from his former lobbying company for successfully representing the view that Freddie and Fannie don't need to be regulated to the Hill when the financial crisis broke, as a major decision maker in McCain's campaign. Obama has elected to make the campaign about issues not innuendos. McCain, and you, have not.

Another pointless discussion. Please explain the ties, in your own words and how they represent a meaningful point to be considered in evaluating Obama's character and integrity. Be sure to include the facts surrounding the present day role the man plays in society, and that he has never been convicted of a crime, and is free to walk the streets of the country, free to vote, and also free to participate on a board that he was selected for by other wealthy people that included wealthy Republicans, to serve with Obama. How does any of this have any bearing on anything to do with the election today? It doesn't. But, McCain has a very tight relationship with several convicted criminals, even ones convicted of felonies, not the least of which is the Watergate plumber who McCain praised for having such outstanding values (like burglarizing the Watergate offices of the DNC, or advising the Waco whacko's to shoot ATF agents in the head so as to not waste shots at areas protected by bulletproof vests and body armor) and again, Obama has elected to try to make this a campaign about issues and honest differences of opinion between the two candidates. Not McCain, and not you.

More bullshit. And McCain doesn't bring this up because he has surrounded himself with the white nutjob equivalents and doesn't want to start the discussion of how the mavericky part of him has been compromised by his pandering to Christofacists. But, notice Obama does not threaten to bring up such vaudeville side show faux issues. But you do, and so does McCain.

I suppose you think taxing the wealthy to pay for the cost of the system that favors them is somehow Marxist. The tax structure of the nation we have all grown up under does exactly that. And, since some of us are not dirt poor on this board we all know how the tax structure really works, so closing loopholes and breaks that were granted under Bush's regime is not "Marxist" unless you are just looking to make noise. Which McCain apparently is and so are you.

Again, other than trying to stir up some kind of argument supported by making this statement sound like an affront to something as pointless as political correctness, what is your point? The man was raised by white people. I am white. I take no offense by that remark in the context of his use of the phrase. Why do you? Is it bringing up some history of personal pain from persecution by the majority of the population or something? More vaudeville grade showmanship to distract from the issues.

There are a lot of bitter people out there. Different things make them bitter, and different things offer them some kind of consolation. You for instance are one bitter fuck clinging to your thinning argument that Obama is a bad person and not qualified to be President, but getting a free ride by the press. You may even be clinging to your gun and some religion of Obama hating because he is black, as that seems to be something you take on faith and hope by reading your list of bullshit that we will also take it on faith.

Again, point out where and how he refused this. I have seen his birth certificate image on the internet, released by his campaign. No government agency that has asked to see it has been refused. Anyone with the need to know in the government can go to the hospital and ask for specific records. You whining about some asshole whining about this being an issue that the press ignores is more clinging to a sick and weak argument. Find a real issue.

The only evidence I see is that you are a bitter, sore loser. Your issues are all fluff, which could be what you have been trained to respond to by growing up being manipulated by Karl Rove's tactics and methods of campaigning. But that is your short coming, and it is the short coming you share with John McCain. He has run a shitty campaign, which is the only real test any of us have to get a good idea of how he will run the White House if elected. He was the GOP candidate in May or so of 2008, so he had several months head start. He did nothing with the head start. He squandered every opportunity to demonstrate real leadership in those nearly 4 months and, as soon as his convention "bump" got displaced by the economic crisis he took a swan dive off a 10 meter platform into a pool with no water. His VP selection was no use to him, and commandeered resources to train her and teach her and dress her, all at McCain's expense when could have used those resources to stop looking like a flustered old man. Poor real time decisions by the score, poor response to opportunities to shine, and completely leaderless campaign operation (ok, he had lots of leaders, but in the end that is the same or worse than no leaders, and he, most of all, failed to lead his own campaign). The evidence to condemn McCain was provided by McCain. The press did not make any of this up. They merely reported it and you don't like that. Well you have that in common with McCain, the bitter little old shit.

The McCain campaign has had unbelievable easy treatment by the press. It is only now that the outcome seems more certain that the press is less concerned they will be on McCain's bad side as POTUS and is telling it like it is when it comes to McCain's blundering and blustering. Which McCain reacts to by banning members from the press he doesn't like from his "straight talk express" bus and plane. What a pair of chumps you and he are.

Be my guest. I would say I would be flattered if you plagiarized me, but that sounds like something that will be misconstrued by the lower life forms here as some kind of come on to you.

While we don't have the same dedicated crowd of hatemongers that seem to love that place, we have a few corkers here. Jaybaugh is one - reminds me of VAdude, with the mindless retorts of talking point propaganda, but with zero personal investment in time to offer his opinions.

Maybe it just means that McCain does 2.034 times as many negative things to report on as Obama does?
