Lynn-it's not a gas tax ad--it's a IT'S ALWAYS TIME TO KICK HILLARY IN THE BEHIND AD!
Hope the Jr Senator from Clean Coal, ADM, Ge/Nukes/MSNBC/NBC (formerly from Illinois via Hawaii) gets used to seeing her behind--as she's gonna win this race.
OBAMA'S WIFE/MAMA/DAUGHTER (that's the persona--the reality is she's the SNARKY SHARK behind this campaign's evil strategy) had the temerity to call him a GENTLEMAN!
This after browbeating both CNN's Susan Malveaux and MSNBC's (but formerly CBS 60 Minutes don't forget!) Meredith Viera yesterday into SHUTTING THE HELL UP ABOUT THE RACIST NATURE OF REV. WRIGHT AND HOW THEY WERE BETRAYED BY THIS GUY EXPLAINING WHAT THEIR 'RELIGION' IS ALL ABOUT.
Thanks for showing us this bogus candidate's latest bogus offering of a campaign.
I hope this guy will disappear into whatever Manchurian candidate nest he emerged from.

GREAT COMMERCIAL, TRUE TO THE BONE!
HILLARY STOP TRYING TO PUT A BAND-AID OVER A BULLET WOUND!
BARACK WILL STOP THE BLEEDING, FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL!
BARACK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT, BEFORE WE GET A PATCH JOB FROM HILLARY
AND MCCAIN!

This is Obama rising above the fray, I take it? Can anyone make an argument that this isn't a negative ad?

Give me a break.

I don't think that his plan is superior to Clinton's. She proposed (first) the windfall profits tax to offset the cost of cutting the gas tax. She supports investing in alternative energy sources, too. She also wants to investigate price gouging by oil companies. Obama is just (once again) "borrowing" what she's already proposed. He doesn't have any original ideas, from what I can tell. He just gets preachy about taking the so-called high road, even though he runs negative ads, too.

What good is handing out a $1000 tax cut to "working families"? Talk about pandering. I don't understand how handing out tax cuts goes toward any real solution of our energy woes or toward simplifying the tax code (which Obama claims he wants to do, although I'm sure that's just rhetoric on his part). And how is he defining "working families"? Interesting that he is so vague on this point.

Meanwhile Obama's poll numbers are going down, down, down.

Clinton has done a great service to Democrats by not dropping out when a bunch of guys hoping to get in good with Obama tried to pressure her to do it. Thank goodness we are really starting to see Obama's history, associations, and true nature before it's too late. He is a politician (not a deity) with big ambitions, little experience, and questionable associations and judgment.

I am so tired of Clinton getting attacked for staying in the race when it is so close and when Obama was being handled with kid gloves by the media throughout most of this election process. Clinton is a strong, solid, tenacious, articulate, insightful, and smart candidate. There's no question that she would be terrific representing our interests in the world. She can repair our relationships with other countries while standing tough for our interests. The Democrats are so fortunate to have someone like Clinton at the ready to represent us as our president.
