With the economy in the state it is in...HE can pay for a half hour of prime time? Hmmmmmmm... Oh that's right, he is for the Middle Class. You know, us couch potatoes....worrying about our retirement, etc. P.U. Mr. O!

To parents sending their kidz off to college (or for those parents with them returning from college), you must watch this Greg-alogue.

Why the heck is he spending this kind of money when he knows he will probably win anyway? What a big waste.

I think obama needs to get off the hypocrite bus and stop talking about the economy when he can spen so much money foolishly like that. If he were a true man focused on the economy he wouldn't spend that much money. Hopefully this gives the American people to see what a wasteful Senator he is and what a wasteful President he would be!!!!!!!!!!

Just because he's ahead in the polls doesn't mean he's going to win. A while back (70's/80's maybe?)a black man was running for Mayor of LA. The polls had him with a 65% lead, everyone was positive he was going to win. Well come election day....he lost. Nothings a sure thing till it's over.

Gee couldn't they take all the money that they are using in the campaigns and pay some of these debts that we ALL now owe? Let the news anchors do the interviews, do a few more debates and that would be no cost to them...

It's absolutely ridiculous that either one of them would be proud of spending that type of money on TV ads given the current state of the economy.

Much of it is from overseas donations that are totally illegal. Foreigners, arabs, millionaires from overseas. The whole campaign is dirty in my opinion. If you people listened to the alternative media instead of the liberals mainsteramers in love with obama, maybe you would be enligntened.

I think wall street is leery of him getting elected and it is showing it. After all, he wants to raise taxes on all those investors, capital gains, small business, anyone over 250k. See a job killer right there with that.

So is McCain gonna get a 1/2 hour of time. I doubt it. I thought broadcasters were suppose to give equal time to all candidates.

Not to mention as a Dish Network subscriber, I get the "Obama" channel that runs nonstop "Obama's Plan for America" in constant 24 hour rotation.

Now that is propaganda if I have ever heard of it.

You idiot libs will believe anything to get total control of this country. The Dems wrecked this economy with their radical policies! If you can find proof of one Republican that is personally responsible for this mortgage mess, NAME THEM! You won't. It all goes back to the radical dems and your boy obama. Before you mark this post nuts or clueless, PROVE IT! Prove anything that Obama has accomplished! You are so brainwashed in thinking that Bush is the sole problem and to narrow minded to think that McCain is just like Bush. What makes your case as to how Obama is so different from anyone? The fool has not run or managed anything! He can't think for himself. The media has created this hype and you are ignorant enough to fall for it. You Barack Hussein Obama supporters need to get with the program. Why do you want this country hurt any more? I don't care if you don't like my post. Somebody sane has to keep pounding the message home to you on what a mistake you are making.

It is the proof of outrage against Fascism of Bushies and republicans

outrage against abuse of capitalism

outrage against racism

Soviets worked towards the failure of communism! Republicans worked towards the failure of capitalism! Apparently both extremes are bad!

A half-hour of liberal garbage. Isn't that money supposed to be spent on the "middle class?" Glad I haven't donated any money to his "good" causes that include terrorism and deceit. Another question. Why does he need a half-hour when he already gets all the media exposure he needs at the expense of CNN-Obama? Also, why does a person who is supposedly "leading" in the polls need a half-hour in prime time. Makes no sense to me.... I won't be watching and won't be voting for this liberal criminal.
