I read the story --- no where did Lingle say McCain is a "contender"

did the headline writer just make that up?

Looks like Lingle has given up on McCain in Hawaii.

I wonder if her speech in St. Paul will extol Bush as one of the greatest presidents ever.

What? McCain is far from a perfect person but between the two he will be a better president.

Yes, wrecking 5 planes wasn't enough. We don't need four more years of the last eight years. Lingle still needs to explain why she supports the regime in Israel that discriminates against people because of their race, ethnicity and religion. One is tempted to conclude she has dual loyalties. One loyalty to the U.S. and one to Israel. She is only allowed one. Otherwise you just cannot trust her to but your country first.

Thanks for the DNC talking points. Any idea why McCain will be just like Bush or do you just parrot what the DNC blogs tell you to?

I would not put my well-being into the hands of an inexperienced surgeon, lawyer, or pilot. Likewise, I will not put the well-being of my country into the hands of an inexperienced politician like Senator Obama.

Hillary's speech last night was a very nice political speech, but to paraphrase Hillary's and Biden's own words of just a number of months ago, Senator Obama lacks the necessary experience to be President.

Country first, not political party or career first!

That's interesting because most people take chances with their lives everyday. But it's so mundane you don't give it a second thought.

I guess you equate an old person with being smart.

You mean McCain's thinking is closer to Obama's than it is to Bush?

Whea's the honest discussions about Obama's politics and whateva policies he may have? I see disaster for us in Hawaii. Higher taxes, higher gas prices. Higher healthcare costs. Higher taxes everywhere and fewer tourists. More taxes on small businesses. Smaller military presence here = fewer jobs. You want change? That's what you end up with in your pocket! Only thing people see about Obama is that he went to Punahou. Wow! Anything else he done for Hawaii?+

khi, what you want is to get into a fight with someone. I really don't want to fall to your level, but you're an ignorant, bigot, and clear anti-semite. If you don't like someone for their beliefs and/or religion, leave the country or keep your venimous opinions to yourself please! It ain't the Hawaii way. It ain't the American way.

Not at all what I said. The DNC keeps saying it will be 4 more years of Bush, I want to know why. If you don't know then you are parroting talking points and noy using your brain for anything.

I don't like either of the candidates. But one thing is for sure. I'm not voting for a clown that just so happens to be where I'm from out some misguided pride thing.

Come on people, get over it already, this guy couldn't be more removed and out of touch with Hawaii than a sheep herder in the hills of Ireland.

McCain is the better of the two...Which isn't saying much, but its saying enough.

"If you would go by the coverage in our state, you would think that the race was a foregone conclusion for Senator Obama," Lingle said this week.

Lingle is just upset that after six years of a mass public relations campaign from the Governor's office, a vast majority of people in Hawaii refuse to buy the Republican message. She will probably have two (2) Republicans left in the state Senate after the November election, a handful of representatives in the State House, all four congressional delgates will continue to be democrats, and an overwhelming majority of Hawaii's voters will vote for Barack Obama over John McCain.

Sorry, Lingle, that's reality.

Since you use yours, why isn't he like Bush?

You keep talking but I'm not sure I'm getting what you're saying.

She is out of her mind. McCain has about a good chance here as Obama has in Alabama or Mississippi.

How about if it came from McCain himself?

“The fact is that I have agreed with President Bush far more than I have disagreed. And on the transcendent issues, the most important issues of our day, I’ve been totally in agreement and support of President Bush.”[Meet the Press, 6/19/05]

Or how about this?

"In recent days, Sen. John McCain has sought to distance himself rhetorically from President Bush’s foreign policy. But on right-wing radio talker Mike Gallagher’s show this past Friday, McCain struck a different tone, proudly declaring that “no one has supported President Bush... more than I have.” "

So why do you believe McCain won't follow his policies?
