If I was not an Obama supporter which I am, I would be after the interviewers threw the kitchen sink at Obama in the debate tonight. It was so obvious from the way Hillary answered, that she knew the questions that Obama was going to be asked. It was an out and out conspiracy. Shame on you ...ABC7 Your score is F- PLUS for the debate…Please do not host another debate; stick to the soaps…For a minute, I thought that I had mistakenly tuned in to Fox News…

What a sad waste of space Johan Goldberg is. A trust fund baby chicken hawk, he owes his entire career to having the good judgement to be born to wealthy, powerful parents. Mumsy and Dadsy have provided every job he's ever had.

It's bad enough that Goldberg steals material from others but the fact that he's a really bad writer just makes me shake my head at what passes for journalism these days.

Sen. Obama remained poise, courteous, stayed above Hillary's "pettiness" and glibe lies! Also, he remained poise under attack from Ch. 7 newsmen. They want to catch a word in Obama's speech and "pound it to death." Obama shouldn't have to answer for other people's faults! And, I don't understand why some of them are picking up where Billary left off. It's ridiculous and makes these so-called smart people - sad people. We need to talk about the issues as Obama has repeatedly stated throughout this campaign. Hillary can never talk about anybody's record!!! Her lies, slander, gutter politics will go down in history as hysterical! The divisive politics shows a country that is still immature and really not let the past be the past. Progress will never happen. Shame on you who fit into this category!

Goldberg says that the Reagan revolution put the nail in the coffin for democrats, but really it was the republicans. That was the beginning of the end of the GOP as a conservative party, despite the rhetoric that Reagan spouted to keep government off our backs. Now they're run by corporate shills and religious fanatics, and any bit of conservativism is buried under the weight of political cronyism.

signed sealed and delivered! a rigged election of someone who stutters without notes or rehearsed speeches.
Angela Merkel is going to devour him and our $ is going to be worth .50€ if that.
People! we are merely voting for who is going to run the Congress! and we know who they are already-Obama'sentourage-. With his inexperience incoherent sentences,(hum,uh the things, the stuff), they will notlet him get near a pen. "sign here, sign there President Obama!So don't worry about a thing. No one will allow him to rewrite our Constitution. Too young to be a Maverick and too inexperienced to be a Clinton polititian.Thank Goodness our forefathers thought of everyting

What can we expect from an anti-liberal fascist
(i.e., Jonah Goldberg who pretends to tell us in his book that
Democrats are fascists)?
Exactly this kind of predictable "criticism".
We can deliver his lines.

I doubt there is a column I've read so full of gaffes and misstatements. Obama refers, occasionally, to Ronald Reagan because Reagan changed the ideology of public debate in this country - just as Obama intends to do. That's it. Sometimes the nature of discourse changes on its own, sometyimes it needs an agent or agency at work to change it. The media fear Obama because they believe they are that agency, but in fact the agency for discouse control has been the Republican Party for 25 years. Now it is Obama. The change remains real change, and there is no going back to the past. As for Goldberg's effort to deny voters are bitter over the economy - what a joke! The pain over lost jobs, lowered wages, mounting debt is palpable. Mr. Goldberg desparately needs psychotherapy.

Gawd...you Obamaniacs are sooooo brainwashed.

"Don't go into corporate America," she exhorted low-income working mothers in Ohio in February, even though she is a highly compensated hospital executive.

Yeah...stay on the dole, don't try to better yourselves...WE'LL (taxpayers) will take care of you.

Goldberg's got him and his Jackie-wannabe wife pegged.

among the many laughable assertions made in this lousy excuse for journalism, is the notion that the current politics of this country are even remotely centrist. yeah ok, i'm sure you're looking forward to having neocon mccain as your next centrist president.

Obama supporters are full of hypocrisy. Asking Chelsea questions regarding Monica is fair and anything question that embarrassed this inexperienced senstor is unfair. This is typical spoiled kid syndrome. I forgot, many of his supporters are "educated" young people from the failed america education system. Sadly, America will have another inexperienced prez after Bush and will get ourselves into deeper hole. Thanks to the TV-brainwashed generation who only cares which candidate has a better smile. Many think Hillary is not trustworthy and trust Obama completely. This is total lack of sophistication and analytical skill in the public. Any politician is not 100% trustworthy (heck, no human is). The key is who is more qualified and who put the interest of the country ahead of his/her own.
