Keno Fruit, no drill fruit and flip flop fruit. No change to be seen anywhere. We are still celebrating Obmama's and Teddy's birthday, too. I was hoping we could get past that and just check the air pressure in the tour bus tires.

Typical right wing talking points. Do you really think there will be any changes from the last 8 years of turmoil if McCain is elected. Think again. And just so you know, if they started drilling offshore will make no difference in gas prices at all. All of US refineries are at maximum capacity now. So even if they did find more oil, it would not increase gas availability at all. Try to educate yourself on facts, not what Bill O'Reilly tells you to say

This was probably one of Obama's best campaign stops. Small crowd, no Cameras, and he could be himself.

Whether or not folks agree or disagree with Obama, it's always a thrill for folks to meet and talk to famous folks.

Mebbe the nice ladies at the market should have told Obama that he needed to lose Teddyboy iff'n he want' to look good while travelin' through Ohio.

Orchids to the teachers for turning a cheap photo op into a focus on education. Onions to the politicos who packaged this cheap photo op. Peaches to the people, maybe even one to preacher wright.

Wow, the Messiah walked among the common folks with no camera's!

Maybe his energy policy (aside from inflating our tires) could utilize peaches somehow? Just a thought

Not to be outdone, John McCain took time off from his campaign tour to stop by and buy some agricultural products from a family farm bankrupted by cut-throat competition agribusinesses.

"I got some really nice deals on family heirlooms!", he said. "I want to thank my Con-Agra contributors for the tip on this opportunity."

"I even helped stimulate the economy,", he said, "by hiring a few of our local Hispanic-Mexican laborers to carry my purchases in the back of my campaign bus."

Next stop for McCain is a local Wal-Mart, representing the sole remaining business in Portage County.

"What a monument to the GOP ideals!", he said.

Why wouldn't Obama want to campaign with Ted and his 61% approval rating. You don't see McCain with Bush and his 13% rating. Think about it Betamax!

This is very true. Closing the refineries in CA. actually helped contribute to the high oil prices . if anyone thinks drilling off shore will bring the price of oil down, then they are very naive.When the Big Five Oil companies testified at the congressional hearings (it might havebeen the ceo from exxon)they made it very clear that the price that we're paying is what it is worth, so don't expect the price to go down. The oil companies currently have access to drill on 22 million acres in Alaska but they elect not to do so. they think the American people are stupid.

While it's true no NEW refineries have been built recently, the reality is that it is more economical to increase capacity at existing facilities. Over the past 15 years, the U.S. refining industry has added the equivalent of one new, state-of-the-art refinery a year, each with a capacity to refine 150,000 to 300,000 barrels per day.

To paraphrase... Try to educate yourself on facts, not just opinions that fit your personal bias.

Hope this helps.

He has to get elected before he can do something about the current laws. Funny, I thought he was a Senator.

did I get the distinct impression that this was a cheap, scripted article to get the votes from the NEA ?(I am not a republician, either.)

does Congress, like obilary and potatoes McCain have the lowest poll rating ever? Because they do not know how to negotiate and get something done. Why should they get paid to be in Congress but spend all their time looking for a new job. Would your current employer pay you to look for a second job and not do your first? Maybe we should have a law saying no standing member of congress can run for president without forfiture of thier salary?

Hey Numnuts!
YOU and your boy, Larry Sinclair, need to lay off the crack. Maybe it was YOU he was with in that so-called limousine. How was his mouth?
BTW, did you know he FAILED a polygraph test? He was offered $100,000 to pass a polygraph test. Is THAT why he is living with you and the both of you are smoking up your paycheck?
See you in the gutter.
