They are right this election isn't about issues - it should be about how to re-educate the cleless and delusional Republicans that assume we are in Pollyannaville right now. I almost hope one more incompetent Republican idiot is elected who takes us into a Depression, another cold war, and perhaps WWIII, takes away all our freedoms so we can generally self-destruct, have a revolution and finally eliminate this party of complete fools that can't see the issues that face this country in the near future or seem to take care of the people who pay the bills for their ponzi scheme they have been running since Reagan.

As well he should, and stay on the GOP candidate McCain concerning not just the economy but the issues of his plan. Lay out the differences between the Obama plan and the McCain plan. Hammer it hard and drive it home, continue bashing them on the issues at hand. As far as bashing campaign manager Rick Davis, leave him alone, don't even acknowledge his presents, if it is not the issues stay clear of it,, you got a race to win. OBAMA/BIDEN 08

WAKE UP AMERICA, Last time I checked we have a Democratic congress that promised change a couple years ago, they have done nothing, and that include Obama. And gee Biden hated Obama not to long ago, basically said he sucked. My how things change. Hillary should have been the VP pick but she is much too strong for Obama to handle. Last I heard, she is voting for Palin.

It's so ironic. So many people who vote Republican are the first to be hurt by them. What have the Republicans ever done for working people? Accomplishments like minimum wage, social security, Medicare, unionizing, child labor laws, all came into being despite Republicans' efforts to quash them. Now they are resisting efforts to provide health care coverage to 47,000,000 of our citizens who have none, and to make it less costly for many struggling working people, while the drug and insurance companies are making obscenely high profits.

Why are the working people of America continually allowing themselves to be victimized by the Republican party, the party for the rich? The republicans cynically use the method of divide and conquer. They use lies to pit groups of people against one another, by race, ethnicity, gender, religion, making each group believe that anyone not like you is the enemy, that your gain is somehow my loss. And we've been letting it happen.

If we can recognize that our similarities far outweigh our differences, and that these differences can be enriching to one another, we can have the strength to defeat the dividers. The country belongs to us, not the politicians. What power we could have if we could band together! We could take back America.

What's the old saying? The devil's greatest achievement is that he convinced us he doesn't exist?

It's amazing that people don't realize that republican policies (trickle-down economics don't work) were what has put this economy on a down-hill slope.

But all the party has to do is say Jesus and talk about Gay Marriage and these idiots will vote them back in. Because of Jesus. Who wanted us to kill people in Iraq, we know because the republicans tell us so.

Jesus.

Obama is a do nothing know nothing lib. He sucks.

He wants to raise taxes on millions of people in several different ways.

What's the matter with you libs anyway? Don't you like to keep the money you earn?

Obama doesn't want to drill, he wants to raise taxes, the guys an idiot.

Harry Reid is another total idiot. He's nothing but a weasely little man. He'll regret insulting Palin.

I've been doing great the last 8 years, I'm sorry you haven't been. That doesn't mean I and others like me should get taxed to death for your benefit. If you'd quit worrying about being poor and waiting for the government to bail you out maybe you'd do better financially.

Do people have the opportunity to create wealth in this country? You bet! That's why people from all over the world want to move here. If everyone thought like you do this country would be a total loss.

This moron on CNN Paul is just a jerk. You have jerks like this guy try and attack Palin and defend Reid, and this Donna Brazile is foolish to agree with Reid's "shrill" remark. That will backfire on them big time. STUPID! Just wait and see what the back lash is. Journalism in this country is in the toilet and everyone knows it and it's about time they got hammered over it.

Listen to them all licking their wounds. Normally they're all so gleeful for Obama, especially morons like this Jeffrey Toobin.

You're right on, we "idiots" don't need or want Gay "Marriage", what a pathetic joke. Gay Marriage is a travesty of the word Marriage.

You say trickle down doesn't work? What does work, trickle up?

What's hurt our economy is numbskulls that don't understand what a fixed rate mortgage is, or how much they could really afford to purchase.

A Leading Hillary Supporter Defects to McCain
Tammy Haddad

Newsweek Exclusive: Top Clinton Supporter John Coale Endorses McCain

John Coale, a prominent Washington lawyer, husband of Fox TV host Greta Van Susteren and a supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton, announced today that he was supporting John McCain for president. Coale, who traveled with Sen. Clinton, President Clinton and her family through out the primary season, complained of sexism, and said the Democratic Party is "being taken over by the moveon.org types" in an exclusive interview with Newsweek.com 's Tammy Haddad. He said he tried to prevent Clinton's brother, Tony Rodham, from attending an August 18th meeting in Scranton, Pa. with McCain campaign surrogate Carly Fiorina. "I urged him not to go and told him it would embarrass his sister, but he has a mind of his own." Coale says Mr. Rodham asked Ms. Fiorina "about McCain's Supreme Court picks."

My sister who is a Demo surprised me. I assume she would be for Obama. But she said "she feels like she's in church and Obama is telling her how to live her life."
That's why Sarah Palin has her attention.

Last time I checked you have fiddled away America for the last 19 years - concerned in any at all now that the people you put in charge bunged it up so badly it will take awhile to fix? Hmmm ... blame the last two years. Typically delusional crap as always. More smears instead of issues. Only you wads will be voting for McHowdy-DooDee and Barbie the Alaskan Wonder Doll. Basically an intelligent person looking at the issues and past performance think your party is a non-issue this year. Losing the trust of the American people in your abilities is a terrible thing to waste.

McCain/Palin Washington Reform! Less government return the country back to the people!

Obama/Biden Narcissistic demeanor! Bigger government more government control!

Simple choice: McCain/Palin

Until there is reform in Washington it will continue as business as usual. Now is the time to put the brakes on corruption, wasteful spending, and the good old boys club. We need more free enterprise and less government in order to rebuild the ecomony. Enough of over 200 years of promises it time for reform, time to rid Washington of its cronies and lobbyist groups. We are the people its our money not the good old boys, its our country and not the good old boys. Its time to reclaim what is rightfully ours the United States of America.

Interesting your candidate is going on 200 lobbyists working for his campaign, is part of the political machine, will appoint lobbists as his cabinet, and will continue the good old boys club - his whole life has been the good old boys club. Way to change. Do you foloow reality at all?
