The thing that concerns me most is the "Joe the plumber" discussion. "Spread the wealth" sounds like socialism to me. Take from the rich and give to the poor. I am not rich, but I sure don't want the government taking your money and sending it to me, or sending it to anyone else as a matter of fact. Wonder what other socialist views that BHO has?

I have mixed feelings about the debate....I was hoping McCain would really come on stronger, be an undisputed "winner" of the debate. I am so afraid of what will happen if Obama is elected. It makes me sick the way the media is so biased in favor of him. I'm afraid a lot of people will be impressed by his speaking skills and all the little sound bites. I hope people will do some real research.
And I agree with what you are saying, slic.

I agree with you too, I am a McCain supporter, and my husband and I thought the same thing about the whole speaking thing with Obama. I guess we will just sit back and see what happens. I am really nervous right now.

I think it is time to be nervous. I'm not sure McCain was the best that party had to offer. And he sure is not a great debater. Obama stutters and stammers around a lot. Seems to me he is trying to think ahead of what he says, so he can be sure to say what the folks want to hear. And I sure didn't like that smirk he had on his face last night.

I think McCain did not press enough on the "spread the wealth issue" and "palling with terrorist" and other pals of his. Press him, show his lack of judgment in his association with the folks he has associated with. If McCain had associated with David Duke would it be a non issue? No way. JMHO

I too waited to see if McCain would come out of the corner. Since this was the last debate, I thought he’d display more energy and be quicker with his responses. He had a few zingers but Obama either had a comeback or moved on to something else and they were quickly forgotten.

Obama let a few things go by. McCain said,“I’m not President Bush.” after Obama tried to draw an association between the two. I would’ve said “Thank you, and I’m not Bill Ayers.”

McCain said Biden had a “cockamamie” idea of partitioning Iraq into 3 countries. Ok, but Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) has advocated for that, too.

McCain said that the last president to raise taxes in difficult times was Herbert Hoover. Why did he bring up Hebert Hoover? I guess he was counting on “Joe Six-Pack” to not remember Hoover was Republican (and hopefully also forget FDR was a Democrat).

And did anybody catch that McCain wants to leave abortion up to the states? Whoa. Where did that come from? I wonder what Dobson and Robertson thought about that?

What’s up with his interest in autism? He linked it with Sarah Palin’s family. Was he confusing Down Syndrome with Autism?

As far as being afraid of an Obama presidency, well for many of us the current president has been the nightmare we’ve been waiting to wake up from.

My kids will never get to live in the America I grew up in. They’ve never known an America that didn’t officially torture. They’ve never known an America that didn’t have secret prisons. Their America is where people have been held in prison indefinitely without trial or access to counsel. Their America calls the Geneva Convention “quaint.” In their America, the poor and powerless are the first people to get blamed for the mess created by Wall Street.

No, if you’ve slept soundly these last 8 years, you have nothing to be afraid of from Obama.

"He is a decent family man with whom I happen to have some disagreements.”– John S. McCain

Hopefully McCain is right on this one. I, for one, do not believe we know enough about Obama to draw an accurate assessment of his character. I see no way McCain will win this election. I see no passion in his soul for the job.

I would vote on a stinky rat before I would EVER stoop to voting on Barrack Hussein Obama!!! Do you people not understand how government works? Okay, first of all our Congress which is made up of democrats as well as republicans govern our country, NOT BUSH...I am so sick of people blaming Bush. Congress has the final say so on any and every bill or legislation that is put before them, not the President, therefore it is the fault of Congress which is made up of democrats and republicans that our country is in a the state it is in . IF we were a communist country or socialist country then you could blame Bush, but we are NOT. We are a democracy. IF, Obama, who recently said "We are no longer a Christian nation;we are now a nation of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists..." becomes our president then we are destined for danger here..It sickens me to think that any true blue American would even consider voting on that freak.

You just said the president has no power but congress does. Ok, elect Obama president so he won't be in Congress any longer where he has power.

While I would agree with you to a point, Bush is not without blame. He has made many blunders; I personally believe many of them due to those he chose as advisers. For example, look at Paulson, an estimated worth of 700 million dollars. No way he has the average citizen's interest in mind. All he wants to do is take care of his buddies. Does Bush not have veto power? We definitely need to clean Congress out. I'll do my part in that in voting against Cornyn. When Hutchison runs for office again, be it Senate or Governor, I'll remember her too. Gohmert stood up for East TX in the bail out, so I may give him a pass.

If what you say above is true,(the part I have left)....IF Obama is elected, nobody has anything to worry about.

If the president is just an 'accessory'- someone to warm the seat in the Oval Office; if he isn't accountable for the state of our country, good or bad, you should just chill out. If that's the case it really doesn't matter if Obama or the angry ol' white man wins....it's a win/win situation!

I definitely have much concern for our country if Obama becomes our president. There's just something about him that I don't trust. I know where McCain has been and where he comes from. He may not be much of a debater, or have the ability to charm people the way Obama does, but that doesn't mean anything. Obama is already playing the racist card. If he becomes president, are we going to have to spend the next 4 years have that "card" crammed down our throat? And besides, "President Obaba" just doesn't sound AMERICAN to me at all!!!!!

I agree totally! My point I was trying to get across to some of these idiots who support Obama was that I am tired of hearing that Bush and the Republicans are all to blame for what is going on in our country today. We need a man with CHRISTIAN values, not one that is MUSLIM (although he won't admit it, yet...), are you kidding me? Another point, he is racist! It would be a disgrace if this racist, muslim, anti-american person is the leader of our country....To those of you who disagree....too bad!

What a change. I've been getting "scary" stuff about 'THAT ONE' for months now. This morning I had this waiting for me. It's actually a real story from a magazine and not just a forward from who knows where.

It's long, but interesting....oh, and it's about the ol' white guy this time. I'm on page three, page two was pretty interesting. Wow!

Hey, I disagree about the 'race card' being played, but if it is....I say it could always be worse. Better to be crammed "down our throat" than "up our..." well, you get the picture!!!=)
