Anyone catch the Sara Palin interview, by that "fair & balanced" Sean Hannity?
What a useless pile of stinking journalism! Every question was clothed in (poor little Sara)and all her responses were, "I didn't do it, I didn't say that, it never happened, and I didn't have my ex-brother-in-law fired". Pathetic. But, she sure is cute and looks great on People/Times mag's cover. That's all that really matters.

dargent77, I couldn't agree with you more, the FIX News team is anything but 'fair and balanced'. I find it absolutely amazing that any decent and intelligent human being can believe the ridulous crap that the McCsame campaign is hammering into thier heads. just baffling, simply baffling.

Dargent and Expat, you are so right! But, it was a little stronger than the interview of Osama and Michelle on the View. "We think you are so sexy" and "How are you related to Brad Pitt". Real tough interview. Then there was Michelle explaining that the fist bump is now her trademark.

Why are you left zingers watching FOX News anyway? You seem to dislike it so much, you should stick to MSNBC. But then again, by watching FOX, you get better information and keep their ratings at #1.

I have a suggestion: Why don't all Democrats start wearing brown shirts with red arm bands and all Republicans wear some type of sign on their outer clothing so those jack booted Dems can slap them when they meet. Just remember that your arm bands can't have the swastika because that represents fascism. You need the sickle and hammer to represent socialism.

It's astonished that any American would support the McCain/Palin ticket. This country cannot afford four more years of Bush policies. The Bush lobbyists and cronies are those who the Republican National Committee wants in the White House and who McCain is falling over for and hiring left and right. These are the same people who smeared his wife and daughter are running his campaign. I don't call that a maverick; I call that a desperate sellout.

If Bush had been president in 1941 his "doctrine" would have resulted in declaring war on Japan after Pearl Harbor and then attacking Venezuela.

Exactly what does that have to do with what I said? BUT since you bring in the "if" game...

If Clinton had been President on 9/11, he would have fired a missile, called for another female intern and let it drop there.

John read the article (biased news source) and you will see that the new policy was put into effect last July for states to provide ice and have a system in place for ice. When or if that failed to meet the need, then FEMA would step in and help. It was because of the millions of dollars spent in unused ice that eventually had to be melted and wasted. That was the ONLY thing criticized by the people when rating FEMA adn their responsed in light of Katrina. why is it when there is devastation in other areas of the country, there is no cry out for those people and the devastation caused. (by flooding or fires) One would have to look at the local gov't and get a better picture of their state's response to emergencies adn such. I know Libs love to blame Bush for everything, so it was only some time before someone came beating the old drum. I wonder if you all will hold your messiah responsible if he gets elected....not.

The same can be said by us with Obama supporters. It is just a matter of opinions, but gets a little offensive when you seem to talk down to people who support a person that best represents what they want. Questioning why as if your guy has all the answers (without his teleprompter to prompt him) and the people who support him are smarter is outrageous. That is the way your post comes across. Not nearly as vile as dargent's usual posts to non supporters of his team, but the message is still the same: we are smart and you are stupidain is not like Bush! The Libs will keep reporting and repeating this to draw on your guy's hate of this man to get people to vote for Obama and it is plain sad and so untrue.

BTW, THERE IS NO BUSH DOCTRINE!! Just another made up thing by the media. It is an opinion to each person when asked what is the Bush Doctrine. For each time asked, you will get a different answer. This is yet another way for the Libs to try and sell something that is not there.

Informed, there is actually a Bush Doctrine. Unfortunately, it has changed so often, I don't think Bush himself even knows what it is now. Don't jump to conclusions, I AM NOT A LIBERAL.

So you're say that Obama has members on his campaign that have previously made implications that he has an illegitimate kid from a prostitute?

A Freudian slip indeed.
He voted with Bush 90% of the time so
that makes him (McSame) a maverick!

Bush isn't great, but he isn't the enemy either. Obama is the closest thing I've seen to an enemy, a muslim named after our enemie's leader, hates America, his family and associates are active against America, and guilt-ridden hippies and the young can't wait to vote him into office. It's like they would have preferred Hitler instead of Truman in WWII.

To Mr kai

What change will bring according to Saint Obama is higher taxes for everybody!

Remember he is for letting the current Bush Tax cuts will expire and EVERY TAX PAYER will pay up to $3000 more in 2009 and Saint Obama lies about his so called tax cut for 95% of all tax payers....45% of the work force pay NO INCOME TAX so they will get a check so is thata a TAX CUT??

SAINT OBAMA IS A SOCIALIST IN AMERICAN CLOTHING...

GO AHEAD AND VOTE FOR HIS CHANGE AND YOU'LL NEVER SEEN TOURIST AGAIN, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFORD IT...

SO WAKE UP HAWAII AND VOTE FOR MCCAIN IF FOR NOTHING ELSE BUT TO SAVE YOUR OWN MONEY....AS LITTLE AS IT MIGHT BE

Dargent, I couldn't disagree with you more. I think Gov. Palin's interview was honest, professional, and smart. Did she say anything that would sway firmly implanted Obama supporters? No, but she gave a very confident and strong interview that revealed more of who she is and what she stands for (whether you agree with her positions or not).

By the by, FOXNEWS has a national viewership greater than MSNBC and CNN combined, and about 33% of their viewership consider themselves Democrats (39% Republicans). Apparently, you were interested enough to "tune in" which I believe it's always a good thing to listen to both sides. So, good on you for tuning in.

Both Obama and McCain have been floundering so far on the current credit crisis.

Obama is not on the right track when he talks tax increases, especially now and at least for the next 2-3 years. Tax increases now will not be helpful for the economy.

It seems from an electoral map basis, McCain is making inroads in Minnesota, Michigan, and Penn, and even leading. Iowa and Colorado are now almost even between the two. These were states that Obama had in his camp earlier. What happened?

To win, Obama has got to be more specific about "change". Exactly what will he "change"?

If he can't articulate the specifics, the "old guy" will win.
