The problem is, whenever anybody says anything in the slightest bit negative about Obama's political positions, he cries "racism"; so McCain is reduced to this.

When has Obama cried "racism?" Dates and quotes, please.

McCain's sour attitude is very reminiscent of Nixon's temper-tantrums after the first televised debates in the U.S. where JFK made him look old, haggard and bitter. Seem familiar? McCain is only showing his true colors in these ridiculous, slanderous ads. Is this really the kind of behavior we want in a leader?? Go away McCain. It's time for a leader whose visions aren't guided by anger,fear or resentment.

You and Dayton should ask Bill Clinton. I guess he dreamt up the sutle allegation also.

And how long was the Kennedy president? How much did he accomplish in that period. People were star struck then and now are with Obama!

The only people I've heard use the racism card are priviledged white men. Obama's tried really hard to keep race out of the discussion and keep the focus on America's problems: war, the economy, gas prices, the credit problem, etc.

McCain's Straight Talk Express is running off the rails.

Then why has Nobama refused to debate McCain?

This editorial piece is just a slam piece against McCain's ad. Why talk about race when you should be asking the morning call why they are printing a piece penned from the heart of corrupt chicago (where Pawlowski earned his stripes, fyi). Also, I bet the Hilton parents are so offended by McCain's ad--much more than when they saw the video of their daughter in the hotel room...One night in Paris?!?! Gross.

So McCain is "reduced to this" because of Obama?

Don, do you ever post a comment where the people you support actually take responsibility for their actions?

Good grief, you're pathetic.

The reason McCain is running these stupid ads is because he is trying to get attention off the real issues (it worked!). The fact is that he 90% agrees with the policies of the failed Bush Administration. He hired people who worked with Karl Rove and they advised him to go dirty and to dumb it down. Treat the American people like idiots, get them talking about anything but the real issues. So much for the "straight talk express."

Unfortunatly Obama most likely wont go negative... but he could, or people who support him could. First he traded up" his first wife (who was crippled in a car accident) for his current wife, married her a month after his divorce was final. That shows a lot about McCain's character, he is going to do what he feels is right for John McCain, not what is right. He has a long history in the Senate with all kinds of votes that would anger both Democrats and Republicans.

Unfortunately, its just going to get uglier. By this time in the Kerry/Bush election, they basically had painted Kerry into being some sort of war criminal. So Obama should be prepared... its so sad. I hope Americans see that they are being manipulated.

The only thing odd about this add is that Obama maintains his arrogant Messiah complex. And this complex is reinforced by Clarence, the Obama groupie.What else would you expect an Obama supporter to say.

There is nothing wrong with that ad. I Think it was a neat idea to relate the celebrity statis of starlets to the Nobama messiah complex.

Even nobama at one time made the correlation of Paris Hilton celebrity statis to himself.

As usual another leftwing zealot in Obama's camp ranting about nothing.

Sore losers all.

Comrade Dayton,

Ah shut up already about your "dates and quote, please".

Go, stuff it. Who the hell are you to dictate how anyone can respond to you when you lie and decieve all the time.

The fact is Don was correct. Nobama did inject racism in this debate. Ive heard it reported numerous times. It is he who refused to leave it alone.

McCain has never brought up race in this thing except maybe to respond to an accustion by NObama or other leftwing zealot like yourself.

Get lost whiner!

In Donnie-World, there is no such concept as "personal responsibility." One just blames everything on liberals, gays and non-Catholics.

Comrade Bigmouth:

Where have you "heard it reported numerous times"? What news organization? What newspaper? What radio program? Show some proof of your claims! Otherwise, you will continue to be an empty clanging vessel: lots of noise, but no substance.

Wouldn't it be great if when all the smoke clears from this election all of the candidates helped the newly chosen leader work to steer things in a new, more enlightened direction? A pooling of ideas for the common good. This is where partisan politics becomes the disabling factor in bringing about change and growth.
