It would truly be a terrible moment in our nation's history if McCain and Palin were to be elected on their platform of hate and lies. There was a time I had some respect for McCain. But he has completely lost my respect. In fact I must have been mistaken all along to think that he had any honor. If he becomes president I will still have no respect for him. But even worse if he becomes president it will show the world that the days of an inspiring America are over. If he becomes president the world will see that America is ruled by hate, fear and bigotry and that every other country had better be afraid because a hate filled, angry old man and his ill-informed religious fundamentalist vp will be in charge and they are erratic and filled with negativity. In fact negativity is their platform.

As much as I hate to agree with the above poster, i have to agree with him.

The GOP seems to have drawn the racist/bigot element to the forefront
of their campaign, and you can't blame the media, or Obama for it.

Can't see how you figure anything anti-Obama as being racists..he has a birth certificate sayig he is white same as any other kid born in America to a white woman..regardless of who his daddy might be! Even the blacks don't like high yellows or albino's..
As for racial problems in America try attending your local black church and hear the racists remarks spouted by most black ministers patterning themselves after Michael David King alias Martin Luther King Jr.. King was as much a communist as Obama is a Muslim. Only Kings FBI files are sealed for a couple more years hiding what some of us know for fact..!
You can scream racists if you like but you may want to consider what the US will turn into if the extremist Muslims do put a token of their beliefs in power over the US..Wake up America and I think McCain has tiptoed around telling America what he really thinks of Obama and it ain't racist,
it is Obama's hatred of America beliefs that McCain is dodging!
