Until recently I hadn't realized how much of a liar McCain is. You'd have to be a very silly person to fall for his lipstick on a pig lie and his lie about Obama's support of a bill to protect kids from sexual predators was the low of lows. I guess I'll still assume that McCain isn't pro-sex predator but one has to wonder after that commercial. I mean what kind of candidate criticizes another candidate for protecting kids from sex-predators. I have 3 kids and I find it disgusting of McCain.

The more he sharpens his tone, the more voters will slip through his fingers. Obama was a popular candidate because he was differant, and he claimed that it would not be politics as usual. The moment he's chalanged, he reverts to attack politics rather than trying to change things right now.

Face it libs, your boy is a one trick pony, and that trick is pretty lame and awfully old. The campaign is rotting from within, and the sinking numbers are only the first signs of self-defeat for the so-called 'Magic Negro' (credit the LA Times for the reference if you didn't already know that). A neo-Marxist who not only condones but encourages the murder of babies who manage to _survive_ the heinous act of infanticide disguised as late-term abortion, i.e. living, breathing babies who exit the birth canal _alive_ and _breathing_, yet are tossed aside to die for lack of post-natal care, B. Hussein Otero is failing miserably at his one grasp for the golden ring. The socialist, income-redistributing pariah that is Obama has miscalculated, big time. The Manchurian candidate, the puppet of the Daley Machine, of George Soros and the socialist underbelly that infests this great country is about to tip over. Thank God. Middle America (minus possibly WI, MI and most definitely the socialist republic of of MN) will once again decide this election, leaving the left and right coasts to go pound sand. God Bless America.

Not real change, mind you, just make-believe change.

Are you a Republican or are you an American? Lakedooty is quite clearly a Republican over an American.

If McCain is doing so well, why is he only up by 4.5 percentage point in Arizona while Obama is up by a double digit lead in Illinois? If you look at the recent numbers, McCain's RNC bounce has ended and his numbers are starting to go down. I guess the Palin effect didn't last as long as they had hoped - say two months. People may have been interested in her celebrity status but are now starting to have to balance the checkbook and look at the budget. Then when they remember that McCain has seven houses and his wife wears multiple $3000 outfits on the same day, they soon realize that he is out of touch with ordinary Americans and doesn't understand the economic pinch that people are feeling.

Here is where Obama takes over the game. Just like Michael Jordan in the fourth quarter. Like Tiger Woods in the final round. It will be inexorable, undeniable, unstoppable. And like President Clinton says, Barack will win handily come November. The packed Democratic caucuses were no illusion.

After months of having ideas for reform countered with b*tch slaps and character assasination, it'll be nice to see Obama cast McCain as the reform fraud he is.
I know. I voted for and donated hundreds to the maverick in 2000. He lost to the Rove-Bush machine. This McCain became the Rove-Bush machine in order to win his party's nomination. It's time America sends all these ideologs and their failed policies packing!
