You cant deny this guy has run an awesome campaign.


That quote was from ''August 2007" Way before he took out the political dynasty known as the ''Clintons.'' Before he beat all odds and garnered 18million votes. Why hasnt the novelty worn off like everyone said it would. Obama has found his attack dog:



I cant wait to watch him debate.
First of all, McCain's housing issue is his wife's business.
She owns and manages their houses both their own and their investment properties.

McCain is too busy doing the people's business and leaves his personal financial business to his wife, attorneys, and accountants.

Besides, when is it a crime in the USA to have done well legally and own more than one home?

Obambi needs to concern himself about whom he associates himself and his family with when purchasing a home.

Cozying up to a convicted hustler, fraud and slumlord does not bode well for Obambi especially as a state senator he filtered $14 million to his slumlord pal as a quid pro quo.

As far as Plugs Biden goes, he ran for POTUS three times and has failed badly each time and only gathered 9,000 votes this time around.

Biden, a great campaigner, I think not.

He has a bad case of hoof and mouth disease and it will be on display regularly as this election moves forward.

The demonrats have done it again, nominating from the far Left of their party the party of Soros, Media Matters, MoveOn.Org, the ACLU, Amnesty International, Code Stink, Sierra Club, and every far Left organization that does not think that the USA is a great country and not founded on noble principles and want to change it into a socialist bastion such as Old Europe.

Not this time, not ever!

What was it that Obambi has done since Biden stated accurately that Obambi was not ready to be POTUS?

I'm waiting, still waiting, that's what I thought...Nothing.

^^Like you, apparently, I don't think either McCain or Obama is an ideal candidate. But repeatedly resorting to juvenille mis-spellings of the candidates' names undercuts any possibility that your posts may be taken seriously. Just sayin.

Ease up, Francis.

Nothing juvenile about questioning and being skeptical of those who seek to gain the power these people want.

These terms are meant to keep them in check as to the responsibility and accountability they owe the American people.

It is not important to me if these terms are not taken seriously, its more important to me that they are used symbolically to stress the point that these people are just human and should not think that given the privilage to lead that they are above being held accountable.

Obama Bi(n La)den 2008 is the last thing this country needs.

If MCcain chooses Condaleeza Rice as his VP I think he would take this election by alot.

Sometimes "Bush-League" but usually POTUS.

A little something I drew up. Pretty good play on words with the misspellings. Also note the URL with the domain CNN LOL.

^ A bit too on the nose. I think you need to leave it "OBAMA" and then have the "LAD" sort of being inserted into BIDEN with a "^" or something. Maybe use a different color for the "LAD".

But McCain has topped both candidates, missing a staggering 58 percent of his votes during the 110th Congress, according to the Washington Postís congressional votes database."

From a biased webiste but the offical count is here as of July 08:
In fact, in the 110th Congress, McCain is #1 in that category by far. He has missed 377 votes and only cast 231, that's means he's missed 62%. Number 2 on the list is Tim Johnson who spent several months recovering from a brain hemorrhage.

Obama is #3, not being present for 43.3% of the votes. However he has cast 114 more votes than the old warmonger. So, McCain can hardly use campaigning as an excuse. The question is....what has McCain been doing?

3. Good thing you don't get paid to think. If you do Sen Obama may increase your potential for welfare benefits.

4. Who you vote for is up to you. I am still waiting for the debates but do not encourage hyperbola from athsmatic blowhards.

My my quite an emotional response.

Winning the demonrat nomination is no big accomplishment these days with the likes of whom they have nominated for the past 48 years. (JFK being the exception, who is probably turning in his grave watching these socialists take over his party, especially his brother, Teddy).

McCain has been traveling to Iraq and other battle zones and visting the troops to get a more first hand view of the situation on the ground which is a pretty good reason to miss some votes.

Unlike his opposite number, Obambi, who last went there years ago before shooting off his fat face about how the USA is losing and the surge will not work and still denines the fact that it has to this day.

He finally goes after being embarassed enough to do so by McCain and while in Germany, among his fans, he refused to visit the wounded troops because he could not get the publicity of cameras and reporters to follow him around.

Obambi would prefer to vote present as he always did in the IL state senate if it were allowed in the U.S. Senate.

What a gutless punk.

Obambi, Commander in Chief?

No, no, no, more like "Pandered in Briefs"

Oh, and by the way sonny, how can you afford a 1er and be on food stamps at the same time?

I hope my taxes are not subsidizing your lifestyle.

I actually though of the "LAD" being a slightly different color, but I ran out of time to change it, then I forgot LOL, but I will change it, I agree.

As to leaving OBAMA with the correct spelling...I went round and round with that and finally decided to leave it OSAMA based on the gaf made by Senator Kennedy.

It is not what you are saying, more than the way you are saying it that is being juvenile. I have a hard time believing:

-Using bold-type font and witty mispellings to attract attention to the fact that you are speking, rather than what you are saying
-Personal attacks that have nothing to do with the course of conversation
-Stating opinion as fact and being condenscending towards those who disagree with you
-Blanket, usupported statements based, again, primarily on your opinion.

are anything BUT juvenile.

I belive argumentative and condenscending comments do nothing to promote a healthy discussion, especially over the internet where anonyminity readily promotes antagonism.

Just try to be a little more civil in your comments and less attention-seeking and maybe we can commence with a proper discussion here, not a middle-school argument.

Talk about condescending...

So if my comments and the way they are being presented according to you "are anything BUT juvenile", then they must NOT be juvenile.

My opinions are based on facts that have been in the news and verified.

A good, fact based discussion of this issue is what I look for and not complaints if the facts hit home.

I must be over the target because I am getting some flak.

Oh dang, caught me on that one. Worded that one poorly, I did.

Also I wasn't trying to be condescending, rather just stating a few things that I believe (read: in my opinion) would promote a healthy discussion.

Given your first post in this thread and the above revelation -- this is all starting to make perfect sense.

Fair enough.

I'm just having some fun with the Obambi fans.

A person that looks like and is only qualified to run for his Senior class presidency not as POTUS.

Fair and Balanced.

Try watching it before you judge.
