Maybe the guys on Team McCain will photoshop eyeglasses on Obama and call him "the real Harry Potter". Makes as much sense as "the real maverick".

Wait...I'm STILL ROFLMHO!! Now THAT was FUNNY!!

"I have to vote for Barack"...never before have I bore witness to anyone who had to EAT THERE OWN WORDS as much as Barack Obama.

Obama is the epitomy of the phrase, "Words come back to bite you in the end."

If there was a new study of HOW MANY PEOPLE DO NOT LISTEN 9i.e. people who listen to the MUSIC rather than the WORDS of a song) I'm willing to bet my last dollar the results would show the majority of non-listeners were also Obama supporters.

Do O-bots even HEAR the words that are coming out this man's mouth?

"Citizen of the world"...

"I am unfamiliar"...

"Don't tell me words don't matter"...

Words DO MATTER, but ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS : )

Mc Cain has real- estate in his portfolio
...so what?

Obamas were both in their 40's with law degrees and couldn't put together a house down payment with 2 six figgure salaries.
Where did the down payments go..up their noses?


John McCain has suggested that the Draft be reinstituted after one of his constituents stated that in order to go after Osama Bin Laden we would need to restart the Draft, Mccain stated he agreed with everything she said. Do we really want a President who wants to send our children to war?

haha, are the republicans just stupid? This is a great ad... for Obama. It is in fact so effectively cute that it made me want to vote for him twice. The NO at the end was completely ignored in the good feeling and humor of the ad.

What a republican blunder lol.

I am sorry McCain, the fact that you do not know how many houses you have bodes very badly for you, and relays to the American public, you are really out of touch. For some it means

"If someone can't keep track of their personal finances -- for example, can't even say how many homes they own -- should they really be in charge of our whole nation's finances?" (Gordon Fischer)

Your confusion or Age is showing!

Wow Bob Fanning, Do you actually have a problem with the fact the Obama took very low paying community service gigs instead of high paying corporate law offers that were freely available to him after he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard law school? You do know that along with the huge student loans he still owed at the time is why he couldn't afford to buy a nice house, right? His very successful books finally gave him the needed cash.

I guess that is sooooo much worse than graduating in the lowest 1% of you class, and with only an undergraduate degree, then easily and immediately getting into a highly competitive flight school (jumping over the hundreds, if not thousands, of candidates who actually qualified) because of one's elite status as the son of an Admiral. Oh, yeah - then dumping your very loyal wife and the mother of your children to remarry into totally unearned wealth.

Yeah - you're right we need the elitist under achiever who got ahead entirely because of family connections. Oh wait - hasn't 8 years of that put us on the brink of economic collapse and driven us to a point where our reputation across the entire globe is in the toilet? McCain would be Bush except much, much more likely to go to war. He seems frighteningly eager and happy to start WWIII.

It looks like it's Biden, so I'm gonna be checking out of the blogs and just living my life--as it looks like we're gonna lose the presidency. I do think we'll take back the congress, however.
I hope we don't lose the presidency.
Angellight and the the other Obama campaign people (I assume she works for the campaign) need to stop bashing McSame on his age. People know he's old. But saying things to BASH his age is just really distasteful.

THEY HAD A CONDO YOU DUMMY!
ALSO TWO SMALL CHILDREN, STOP BEING STUCK ON
STUPID, TURN THE TUBE OFF AND READ AND PRAY!
