Senator McCain says Washington is broken,he is a maverick,says he does not support George Bush!
so my question is....Why is Governor Palin reading from a hand written speech by Bush speech writers?....
Mavericks!..Reformers for change!..OR...PUPPETS of GEORGE BUSH?

Before,Doing and Now after the conventions one side is focusing onthe ISSUES affecting the Economy,Health,Country. While the other side only talk about their love for the country....How proud they are to be Americans.....(last i knew, i thought we all are and am proud americans)So how does this help those suffering?One side is saying its time for action not talk, ok so where is your plan of attack?

Pause for thought!

Campaign Finance Reform - Climate Change Reform - Immigration Reform - Treatment of War Criminals Reform. Obama worked on a bill allowing people in bankrupcy to give money to charity. WUWHO!!Obama has gotten millions of dollars in Pork in his short time in DC. McCain has not requested a single earmark in 24 years! Not once has Obama broken with his party. And he is change how? No. Besides that. We are to judge by the content of character, not the color of one's skin!

Palin claims that she will advocate for special needs children if she were to get in the white house. Why does she need to be in the white house to advocate for special needs children. Palin hid the fact that she was having a baby for nearly nine months or more. Seems like Palin was ashamed of her down syndrome baby. Palin is now using her own baby that she was so ashamed of to boost her career now that she thinks the baby will help. Palin is a shame on the republican party. McCain says that he knew all this stuff about Palin. I really don't believe he did but he is afarid to really say he did not know because he would really look dumb. He still looks dumb because he claims to be so conservative yet his vice president lives such a liberal life.

Palin was ashamed of her down syndrome baby and that is sick.

What's sick is your fantasy of knowing how anyone feels about their baby. Didn't know it was a law anyone should broadcast their feeling to make you happy. There's absoultly nothing that show shame on her part so grow up loser & go with the real issues & facts. Where's the posted news on your family & family issues, just where they should be, in the privacy of your family. Of course it's useless answering a dead brain like you, but it does show how stupid you are.

Palin was hired because she's an attractive older woman. The job was to gain votes for McCain from other women. They fucked up not doing their research. Turns out she's a poor parent, ashamed of her baby, and her daughter's a whore. McCain didn't have a chance before. Now he's really fucked.

Sure hope all that anger is not really aimed at your own family, it would be sad to think an idiot like you is calling their daughter & spouse those filthy names.
I doubt very much you will be voting for anyone, you are too full of your own stupid self. Obiviously you are a loney angry nasty person, probably can't stand yourself much less anyone else.
You definately can't think for yourself, as you repeat the gossip tabloids word for word, crap that most people laugh at because they know it's gossip strickly to get attention, & your dumb enough to print it & claim it as your own. People like you are dismissed as shallow & ignorant by anyone with any common sense.

Are you joking?

There's been a massive 20 pt swing to McCain among women voters. Giving him a dominating lead among women.
Yesterday's Gallup survey shockingly indicates Palin has helped McCain close the longstanding "enthusiasm gap" with Obama, part of why it now has McCain LEADING Obama 50 percent to 46 percent among all registered voters.

As a result, there's been a huge 12 point swing to McCain among Independent voters over the weekend. McCain now leads in almost all national polls.

Your statement couldn't be any more wrong.

The shame is on you for a deceitful statment like you've made regarding this little baby, this is the real truth, but it's not expected that you will believe it, seems you'd rather be negative & mean.
When the little Down's Syndrome baby of Todd and Sarah Palin was dedicated at their church a few months ago, their statement to the congregation was 'This little boy is my pro-life statement.
She stands by her conviction & loves her child. She knew about the downs syndrome many months before birth, instead of choosing what some consider the easy way out, she choose to give him all she could as his mother.
Just because your free to have an opinion, dosen't give you the right to say anything you choose to make up, where is your conscience?

Yeah, and I noticed how she paraded around stage with the baby (I think it was during the GOP convention) as if he were some kind of advertising tool for their campaign. I found that to be really SICK!

No, it was more like a mother holding her small child, not old enough to walk yet? Same as Obama sittting with his two daughters on a bench during a their family interviews. They kept interupting the interview with childish things to say, he calmly addressed them like a parent would. Obviously your aren't a hands on parent & don't understand, children don't get put off & on a shelf. They are all parents & their children are all part of that family picture. For the most part the baby was taken care of by other family members, nothing looked staged, just normal life, if she ignored the baby, you'd be saying see she is ashamed of him. Good thing the low life opinon of people like you that can't be pleased dosen't count. As for the normal people, we see it for what it is, parents running for office still being parents.
