The better question is how much of the same Bush economic/foreign policies do we want for the next 4 years.

NOT ONE DROP.

Last thing we need is someone who thought Bush was right 90% of the time.

Obama explained his plans, and they sound better than McCain's. I'm happy with where my vote is going.

Are you?

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago :
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.
4) the DOW JONES hit a record high--14,000 +
5) American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, living large!...
But American 's wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes--we got 'CHANGE' all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing!;
3) Unemployment is up to 5.5%(a 10% increase);
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLAR S and prices still dropping;
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low~~$2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS, BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS INVESTMENT PORTFOLIOS!
YES, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE...AND WE SURE GOT IT!...
REMEMBER THE PRESIDENT HAS NO CONTROL OVER ANY OF THESE ISSUES, ONLY CONGRESS.
AND WHAT HAS CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, ABSOLUTELY 20 NOTHING.
NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE IS GOING TO REALLY GIVE US CHANGE ALONG WITH A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS!!!!
JUST HOW MUCH MORE 'CHANGE' DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?
Halloween is coming,Trick or Treat?
FYI, the rest of us 95% Americans have been feeling the pain since 2000. That;s why the change in CONgress happened in 2006,do you think Bush's 4 years in office could be un-done in 2 years?

Militia Barbie will be exposed for what she truly is: just another lying, power-hungry, hypocritical politician using simple-minded people to vote for her because "she seems so down-to-earth." Dumbya used the same tactic and millions of fools fell for it.

What really happened in 2006 was the Democrats won a slim majority. The Republicans had enough power, and the power-mad instincts, to paralyze congress. Between the president and the republicans any attempt at change was blocked. Now we're seeing the consequences. Spend a little time with CSPAN, you might learn something.

Heads back in the sand McCain/Palin supporters. You'd rather not deal with this bit of fact. Instead you'd rather spend time on your conspiracy theory that Obama is using a fake ID to obtain the highest office in the land, after being Senator.

My question is how do you reconcile your thoughts that Bush has made us safer, but now someone can be vetted by the Secret Service, FBI, and receive security clearances for Senators. How do you reconcile the two opposing theories?

To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal senator takes
some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in two short years. I wonder what
would happen to America if he had four years to work with.



There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating.
There is a reason the homosexual community supports him.
There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas, etc., love him.
There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme
Court.
There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill.
There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex
marriage.
There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion.
There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito.
These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial
birth abortion--the same practice Obama wanted to continue.



Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue.



The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedure



A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.
(Remember, this is a live baby.)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are
then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's
brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then
removed.

Sarah Palin makes history and headlines, her way:

Sarah Palin, who juggles being Alaska governor, an ex-beauty queen, moose hunter and mother of five, shot from obscurity to become the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket.

Planned Parenthood is an organization that helps women and families have access to family planning education, birth control, and reproductive choices -- including abortion. Good for Obama for having an excellent rating from Planned Parenthood!

As for "partial birth" abortion -- Obama has stated that he will vote to or sign a bill that bans this procedure if there is a provision for the health of the mother. All you "right to lifers" have to do is take the mother's health into consideration and you can have the ban you want.

As to the gay community endorsing him -- yeah, we Democrats tend to want to include ALL Americans in our adoption, marriage, family and all other laws and policies that are indeed for ALL Americans. What is your problem with that?

And yes, Obama will work with world leaders. It sure beats more war... no?

And no, he did NOT vote for infanticide. He abstained from voting since there was already a law on the books to protect infants who survive abortion, and the law that was proposed would have put abortion rights at risk without regard for the life and health of the mother.

Any other inflammatory lies you want to put out there? Or do you just want to let the McCain campaign do that for you?

Barbie is unqualified and just another lying politician.
"Represent the every day person" =$150,000 on clothes, traveling hair dresser, her make up person is the highest paid employee in the campaign.
"Honest hardworking" = abused her power as gov. Cheats on her taxes.
If you think Barbie represents anything other than herself, its no wonder you vote for the old worn out "agent of change"

Masingil,AK (AP)

The Special Investigator assigned to investigating Sarah Palin's abuse of power was found dead today.

The coroner has ruled the death a suicide.

The death was apparently caused when the investigator was reviewing Ms. Palin's answers. Unable to decipher the drivel that spewed from her mouth, he took the easy way out by stepping out of a 20th story window.

I remember investigations dogged Spiro Agnew, another friend of Liddy until he resigned and went to jail, like Liddy, who is McCain's good friend. With friends like Liddy who helped Nixon in his Dirty Tricks no wonder McCAin went for a running mate like Spiro Agnew. Palin will be dogged by investigations until she steps aside.

Planned Parenthood - does not give education on what the procedure does to the woman's mental, phyical and spiritual state of mind. They are devistated at the loss of the child.
Partial birth abortion - If the womans life is in danger, Dr's have the right to do what is necessary to protect live of both woman and child thru early delivery thru c-section. They don't need this law. This law is used by woman who are healthy with healthy babies. Since the baby does not take a breath they feel it does not contitute life? Are you kidding. Putting a stint in the back of a baby head and sucking the brains out.. What do you call it. I call it murder. I can understand someone feeling like they are not ready to have children, it's call adoption. Pregnacy is caused only one way, try abstenance (sp). Rape, I'm so sorry for what the woman endured, but did the child ask to be born? No, so don't kill the child. What God's knits in your womb is for a reason and it's not our right to kill one of His children. Once the heart is beating, it alive... We remember those killed in 9/11, lets remember the 50 million killed thru abortion... Love these little angels.

If you truly believe that the unborn should be protected, then you should be voting Democratic. Under Republican regime, the abortion rates tend to go up because there is less education that promotes safe contraception and more inappropriate education that is ineffective.

Barack Obama will work for there to be better healthcare options for both the unborn and the born, taking the cost of healthcare for a child as one of the reasons for abortion off the table.

Barack Obama will work for there to be better and more affordable childcare options for working women, taking childcare affordability as a reason for abortion off the table.

Barack Obama will work for there to be a more fair and equitable tax plan for working people, and for there to be more and better paying jobs for working class people, taking job security and financial considerations as a reason for abortion off the table.

With Barack Obama as president, you will have a leader working to make abortion more rare, less perceived as necessary for survival for women who face unwanted and unplanned for pregnancy.

If you truly believe that abortion should not happen, vote for the candidate who can and will work to make abortion less likely...
