Talk is cheap, I had to laugh watched a little of Larry King and some baffoon from the republican party stated McCain will cut spending, downsize goverment and bring the country together. Wasn't that what Bush said 7 years ago. In reallity, Bush spend more than any other president in history, created more government jobs and isolated us from the world. I can't buy into McCain sorry. I prefer Hillary but whomever the democrats put in got my vote.

I have no idea where I'm heading yet. Not one of them has swayed me in any direction. Both Dems are coming across as demagogs to me.

Where was the flag of the United States of America. Obama rarely uses that as a backdrop during his speeches. I am becoming more and more suspcious of a man that is running for the President of the United States of America and won't salute our flag, or even wear a flag lapel pin. I question his patriotism. Among other things.

Hillary's proposal for student's is much better. She offers $10,000.00 for national service and she offers to forgive your debt if after you graduate and you go into public service your years will pay for your education.

I'd hate to see how high we'd be taxed to pay the $10,000 that each student will be getting.

When deciding who to vote for, I always look at the Caricature of the person running for that office. by doing so, give you a yea or nay to lesson to more of this persons views on the office they are running for. with Obama I crossed him off as soon as I learned he will not salute our flag or pledge his allegiance to this country. Sorry, if you can't be 110% American you don't belong running for office. When he speaks about AMERICA, he is talking about South AMERICA, Central AMERICA, Mexico, and Northern America As Canada all the way to the North pole. He makes no excuse in thinking this way. What the H**** is that?? This man stayed in a Church with a racist Minister who preached his trash for 20 years, but he did lesson? There no need to look any further, as this alone should turn off the thought of voting for him.

Hmmm, looks like Obama is using Hillary Clinton's speech writers. All of the points listed as "swaying" voters are exactly the same views as Hillary Clinton. I'm voting for her.

Yeah, a flag pin is what I need for a president. Don't listen to what they say, just as long as they wave the flag and wear a pin. That's smart.
McCain can drape himself in a flag, does that make him a better candidate? NO. He will be a third Bush term. Another disaster for middle America and our economics. Plus another 100 years in Iraq.
Good choice, real clear thinking.

That's not entirely correct. I don't know where the "$10,000 for national service" came from and your debt will be forgiven after 20 yrs of working in public service and paying it down while you're working, partially through hours worked. But she definitely does have a better plan overall for education, not only for college loans.

Is is necessary to insult others to get your point across? That in my view is not a "good choice" or "real clear thinking."

I'm voting for neither, as I am not a socialist and I have actually paid attention to their specific policies, wherever they can be gleaned apart from all of the speechmaking pap and blather. They can both talk all day. All of you useful idiots who are enamored by speeches but do little background homework can be satisfied in knowing you have fallen for words positioned just vaguely enought to enchant and appeal to you.

That is why you are called useful idiots.

Unfortunately for me it will be a vote for the lesser of all of the evils. I hope that they both destroy each other at the convention.

No disdain for white women here..just discriminatory taste (go look up the original meaning of the word minus all of the politically correct redefined bullschitte) that DOES NOT include Hillary Clinton. I concentrate on policy, you might try it...

Since I was nnot there I don't know where the flag was. It has certainly been at every other speech I've sen on t.v. so I don't know where you're getting that from. As for not salute the flag, that is an internet lie that you and many others choose to believe. The lapel pin, when did that become a mandatory accessory to anyone's attire? Don't vote for a person without a pin, that's an informed vote. Do some research, read real news or go to factcheck.com but don't just buy everything someones says to you and keep selling it.
