From www.answers.com/topic/geraldine-ferraro

"Ferraro was re-elected for a second term in 1983, and a year later was propelled to the forefront of the national political stage when Walter Mondale chose her to be his vice-presidential running mate (the first woman to be so selected)." So sorry Gov. Palin did not make history, but Sen. Obama did.

I don't hate anybody. I don't want her for vice president because it would come with McCain as president. Does not mean I hate her though. I simply don't think he chose her because she is a good choice, it is all about the Hillary votes.

It all started going downhill for Obama when he could not stand up as a man and remove himself and his family from the presence of his preacher and mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a man who habitually butt-spewed anti-American racist filth over his entire church congregation.
Obama had 20 years to stand up and leave such a demented environment but only when Rev. Wright became a liability for Obama's bid for president did Barack Obama separate himself...That's 20 years too late, that's self-serving and that's not a man fit to be president.
President GW Bush stood as a man and confronted alcohol that was destroying him and his family. John McCain stood as a man and confronted war and captivity. Obama never stood for anything and that's why he’s content to lay The United States Of America at the feet of his euro-socialist contributors and their ideology.
Once again Barack Obama’s demons are holding him down, he does not possess the integrity to fight back; integrity comes from the one’s soul not from Harvard, Barry.
The United States of America fought wars even on its own soil to defeat the demented racist anti-American sentiments of those along the lines of Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Bill Ayers and Father Phleger. If left up to people like Obama who could not and would not stand there would be no United States Of America.
Electing someone president who could not and would not politely stand up as a man and confront Rev. Jeremiah Wright simply by removing himself and his family from such obvious filth is as silly as it sounds.
Allowing a community organizer and junior senator with no military experience whatsoever and who voted against the mission the in Iraq and later voted against the surge to be placed in charge of The United States Military in Iraq and Afghanistan is also as silly as it sounds.
The mission in Iraq was a poor attempt to pull the wool over the american publics eyes. The mission just in case everyone has forgotten, was Osama not Saddam. Saddam did not participate in the murder of all those innocent people in the world trade center. But no one has gone broke under estimating the intelligence of the american public. You sit and parrot either intentionally or thru ignorence this criminal administration. thats right criminal. They are responsible for over 4 thousand men and women who volenteered to serve on behalf of this great country. Because of a fabricated tale of weapons of mass distruction. As a Viet Nam Vet. I am personally appaled that someone who spent their youth when they were able to go and defend this country dodged serving his country and answering his call to duty. Called for an unjust war so they could pocket money with Haliburton. So sir or Ms whoever you are, if you want to continue to B>S yourself go ahead but the majority of Americans are not going for those B.S. LIES And as far as Obama and his ministor pastor or who ever the hell he is. Tell me one untruth he spoke and I will apologize for him.

So YOU consider providing comprehensive healthcare to all CHILDREN as "socialized medicine" and welfare. I call it common sense for America. 401Ks that are paid for by your OWN money is welfare.

As a "taxpayer," the government gives me NOTHING. I pay into the system and in return the system SHOULD reciprocate for the people that pay into it. It's the TEAMWORK approach that I mentioned earlier. Does that concept escape you?

I'm sure Obama will gladly accept any of the moderates religious extremist kook Palin just delivered. Thank you Sarah!

What a standup gal.
As expected the obama ass kissers are already lying about the more qualified Governor Palin.
But of course the obama groupies are racists, sexists, amd misguided white losers with a unfounded guilt complex for something they never had any part in. So of course these kind of people would never vote for an intelligent independent and ethical politician like Governor Palin.
But with Palin on the McCain ticket, the McCain/Palin ticket is now the platform of change you can believe in, where as with obama you get nothing but the same old politics of corruption.

You forgot to include Social Security and Medicare.

While you accuse Obama of promising 1 Trillion in spending, how is that better than 1 Trillion in debt to the Chinese that Bush/McCain supported? You really think McLame is going to not continue the insane borrow-and-spend ways of typical republicraps?

So, yeah, spend 1 trillion on Americans rather than borrow another trillion from the Chinese for useless wars and corporate welfare.

I believe that you want to believe this. If you're a young voter, Obama is counting on you to believe America can be more -- whatever 'more' really means. As you age, you become more of a 'Realist,' hope for the best, while realizing that people make choices in their own best intersts. The only thing another person who is seeking to persuade them to take some action can do is to appeal to those interests.
I am an older realist and I am voting for Obama. I meet many of them, even older and more seasoned than I, who are active in his campaign.

I don't know Wright to be a racist, but I do know Jerry Farwell, and Billy Graham to be racist and serve as unoffical clergy of the White House for the last 20 years.

The entire idea of the economic number aren't just reported in the Media, you can feel free to review the Governments' economic data that is used to help business and corporations forecast.

7% decrease in imcome is a result of inflation.

In you own pocketbook, is your income exceeding the inflationary increases across the board, for 90% of American their income aren't.

That's not media induced numbers that is a result of raw data. Available on the Federal Website.

I did find it odd that Hanity reported the imcome growth of Corporation without reporting the conditions of Working Americans, don't you?

I ran across this, If this is not true then please direct me to website that disputes this.

Proposed changes in taxes after 2008 General election:

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

MCCAIN
0% on home sales up to $500,000
per home (couples) McCain does not
propose any change in existing
home sales income tax.

OBAMA

28% on profit from ALL home sales

How does this affect you?
If you sell your home and make a profit, you
will pay 28% of your gain on taxes.

If you are heading toward retirement
and would like to down-size your
home or move into a retirement
community, 28% of the money you
make from your home will go to taxes. This
proposal will adversely affect the
elderly who are counting on the income
from their homes as part of their retirement income.

DIVIDEND TAX

MCCAIN 15%(no change)

OBAMA 39.6%

How will this affect you?
If you have any money invested in stock
market, IRA, mutual funds,
college funds, life insurance, retirement
accounts, or anything that pays
or reinvests dividends, you will now
be paying nearly 40% of the money
earned on taxes if Obama become president.

The experts predict that 'higher
tax rates on dividends and capital gains
would crash the stock market yet
do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.

INHERITANCE TAX

MCCAIN 0%(No change, Bush repealed this tax)

OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax
How does this affect you? Many families
have lost businesses,
farms and ranches, and homes
that have
been in their families
for generations because they could not
afford the inheritance tax.
Those willing their assets to loved
ones will not only lose them to
these taxes.

NEW TAXES BEING PROPOSED BY OBAMA

* New government taxes proposed on
homes that are more than
2400 square feet

* New gasoline taxes (as if
gas weren't high enough already)

* New taxes on natural resources
consumption (heating
gas, water, electricity)

* New taxes on retirement accounts
and last but not least....

* New taxes to pay for socialized medicine
so we can receive the same
level of medical care as other
third-world countries

Obama says he favors drilling-for gas, not oil, even thouigh they both come out of the samewell-brilliant. Obama also claims that he favors the 40 Billion gas pipeline through Alaska and Canada. Did you listen to Obama in Denver? Have you studied his campaign talking points? He is not against drilling, just stupid about it.

I'm not sure who you mean by young voter.
This guy I work with is 35 and he is voting Obama no matter what.

He says it's time to have a democrat in office.

Later he said, if Obama wins and he screws up, I'm going to feel stupid.

Obama, 143 days in the Senate before he decides to run for the Presidency, most of his Senate career spent running for President, Commander in Chief, leader of the Free World? Scary?

Oh, I did forget to list some of his experience. He also sat in the pews of a racist black liberation theology church for 20 years, and considered its racist pastor to be his "mentor and spiritual adviser." Sorry for the omission.
