<<I thought the speech was good, but the hypocrisy of the Republican party is pretty astounding. To run an entire campaign about Obama's experience, and then bring in Sarah Palin as VP>>

But you see no hypocracy in running on a platform of change and selecting Joe Biden as a running mate????

Hello...???!!!

Obama is THE most liberal memebr of the Senate and Biden is #3 - birds of a feather, I guess.

And, if this report is true, it's gonna suck being Obama:

Who do you feel can get the stock market and the housing market back on track?

Obama or Mccain?

How can they do it best?

McCain is clearly the choice for investors.

He owns numerous houses - he is an investor.

Obama plans to tax small business (that's you - real estate investor) to the tune of some 68% - you get to keep 32% of your transactions. - Talk about destroying the American Dream!

I'm really undecided. 

This isn't going to be politically correct, but if Obama wasn't Black I'd definitely vote for McCain.  Frankly, if Donald Duck was going to help me keep more of my money and had a chance to win I'd vote for him.  I could care less about the ideology.

I care about the money mostly.

However, I also care about Obama making history.  Some of my best friends are Black.

So it's a tough choice for me.

Obviously your right to vote for your desired candidate is purely your right to do as you see fit.  That being said, why would you vote for a candidate who, in your own stated opinion, is substandard as compared to the other major candidate just to make history?  He's already made history just by being nominated by his respective party.

Yeah, RetiredAt35, besides Palin would be the 1st female VP, and ladies should always go first!  :biggrin

McCain would also be the first President elected over the age of 70; so you get two history-makers for the price of one on the republican ticket!... lol

Hoosier sounds like he is watching too much driveby media programs. Pretty much all he does, is says what the media says, and what Obamas campaign says:

"McCain will be another 4 yrs of Bush"

"McCain wants more troops killed"

"McCain wants to spend the US into space"

And WAIT A MINUTE...

did I just read, "if Obama wasnt black I would vote for McCain"????????? What is this crap? What an idiot...you need to get out of America. Now.

#1 Mccain will be another Bush term.... do you look at his policies.  If anything hes more Socialist than Bush.

#2.  I dont believe I ever said anything about the war.

#3.  Never said anything about space either.

#4.  That wasnt me that said that.  But guess what.. people can vote for or not vote for somebody for any reason they want.  Who are you to tell somebody they cant vote for somebody because there black?  Im not a person that would not vote for Obama because hes black,  however.....  Obamas black bias' attitude toward minorities over white people is pretty absurd, so why cant I be racist like Obama?

For those who arent sure what Im talking about.. Look for "Obamas Typical White Woman" Quote on Youtube.

I may as well make my first post a good one...LOL

For me, it's like this:  Obama is an empty suit.  He's good at memorizing talking points and reading teleprompters.  His manner of speaking reminds me of a thrift store version of Jesse Jackson.  He's arrogant, effete and just seems to be way too in love with himself.  He's supported bills to murder infants (abortion survivors).  He wants to raise taxes on people making as little as $42K per year.  He wants to nearly double the capital gains tax rate.  He intends to meet and play slap-ass with terrorists and thug dictators (read "our enemies").  He has chosen a complete moron as a running mate and the only reason he's made it this far is because the media covers up all his undesirable details and carries his water in a very big way.  There is more (much more), but what's the point of enumerating every reason not to vote for this poser? 

Bottom line - Obama is dangerous for this country.  The damage he could do to our economy, national security and freedoms in the next four years literally frightens me

McCain isn't a conservative, not by a long shot, but he's nowhere near as radically liberal as Obama.  So once again, we're going for the lesser of two evils.

And as far as McCain or Bush being socialist...are you serious?  Obama wants the government to be the one-stop source of everything in our lives, from health care to home mortgages.  That is the very soul of socialism!  If you think McCain is socialist, why would you vote for Obama, whose policies are MUCH MORE socialist?

I apologize for not being more clear.  My belief is that any non-McCain vote is effectively a vote for Obama.  I understand that some people want to vote for Bob Barr or even Ron Paul, on principle.  However, neither of these men stands a chance of winning the election, so a vote for either of them is a wasted vote, one less for McCain and one vote closer to Comrade Obama getting the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and control over the armed forces, foreign policy and more for the next four years.

McCain isn't my guy.  Fred Thompson was my guy.  I could write Fred's name on my ballot, but I won't, because I value the safety and stability of the country over the principle of voting for a the candidate I think is best suited to the job.

Besides, Sarah Palin is, IMHO, very conservative, and a term as VP will groom her nicely for a Presidential run in 2012.

Hold it guys, I think both of these candidates deserve some respect. There's no need to mock them.
