THere is a big difference between experienced and (too) old. There is a point of everyone's life when the age takes it over and no matter how experienced they are, they cannot function properly. THat is why very EXPERIENCED pilots have to retire at 60 (or so), that is why the top notch cardiologist has to retire at 60...

You want a huge and enthusiastic crowd? Go to a concert.
We are selecting a president here, not a rock star. Or a cult leader.

As for a CEO over 70 years old? How about the world's richest man?

Again, where do you get the idea that your and my taxes will go through the roof?
You assume too many things -- like you assumed that Iraq had the WMD and Al Qaeda ties and like you assumed that the Healthcare we have now is the greatest possible, and like you assumed that my 1st grader was receiving equally good education that a 1st grader in an Eastern European country is receiving... And like you and Ganeil for example assume that Europe and the US has seen same gas prices increases -- hidden by the dollar value....
We're sinking, they are NOT.

From BO camp, I (remaining middle class + low class) only see positive things in all aspects... It may all be a BS, but at least gives us some hope.

From McCain, unfortunately, I see a bunch of depressing things...with a few positives here and there.

Sure, go ahead and belittle the point that he IS the richest man....
Why dont you just admit that you are wrong on this point...

Or are you incapable of that?

Yep, I am wrong, you founf one out of 500 Fortune Companies
Let me trow you a bone...

Again, you ignored the logical stuff and completely missed the point of the age argument -- like why are pilots and cardiologists (among other critical professions) required to retire at the age that McCain was in the 80's???

Show me where I have assumed that. I contend that it is not the purvue of the federal government to do anything about it. The federal government needs to shrink to a manageable size and take care of it's constitutional obligations without usurping the rights of the states and the individual.

Where have I ever made that assumption? Our public school system is awful and needs to be abolished. Fortunately it is not much of the business of the federal government, even today. We need to shut down the Department of Education and get our own states to make better decisions.

I don't think I have commented on gas prices in other countries or the value of the dollar.

My hope is not in government, but could be enhanced by less government.

I may be able to agree with you on this statement, though most of the specific points were we to list them would likely be reversed.

Again with the extreme scenarios of doom and gloom. Your religious fundamentalist teachings based on scare tactics are reflected in many of your posts.

As a matter of fact, I haven't seen any of your or other Bushies posts where you criticize them...

It is amazing that they can shit on your head and all you have to say is: It's not their fault, and thanks for the hat.

I used to respect McCain, but recent double talking discredited him a great deal.

He is OLD for the job he's applying for. Too OLD.

Can't-stay-awake OLD, can't distinguish between Al Qaida and extremists OLD, can't have intern blow him OLD....
I've never voted for Bush. I've never even voted for a presidential election.

I know that it is used by Christian religion to scare people into believing.

It's existence comes from a man made bizarre book.

Heaven and hell, dumbed down extreme scenarios. Got it? Good.

Oh man that is funny shit gonna stir up some fun!.

To get to this Worst Person crap it needs to be changed from world to United States be more accurate also a line E needs to be added for D all of the above. To be honest most American politicians and pundits are full of crap, why do you think we are a falling empire.

The Republicans generally make people fear the world, and act like they are some type of cowboy savior protecting the world, all while giving tax breaks and less government, when all they are doing is reaching around you, and grabbing money from your wallets, and putting it into there self interests in corporations. But most that follow are to blinded by the fact that their politicians share the same religous belief. He says he is a good Christian so he is a brother of mine and I will follow is every word.

The Democrats generally are so far from making up there minds on what is right and wrong that they are to pussy footed to make an answer or take a stand on any issue.Democrats get some balls and stand up for what you believe don't say one thing and give up then give into corporate america. Most people follow the dems because "change", last time I checked we were in a shitty situation when Clinton left and are in a shittier situation now even though the Dems control congress.


But if I am going to really vote I would add the american people that reelected Bush and are now complaining. Gas prices are high why? The war? Economy? If you can't put two an two together I don't know what to tell you. Oh you must have been educated by the underfunded American Education system.

P.S. Democrats if you want the American people to follow sell them a war not a lie that you got fellatio in office, because by god killing is o.k. but adultery is not?
