    This is my first post to this site, after holding it in for the last few months...and I am finally saying it. I have never seen such hypocrisy from a political party in my life. The lies and half-truths and distortions...it is amazing.

    If Obama and his family had 1/4 the incidents that the McCain campaign has had, the assault from the GOP would be massive.

    * Imagine if it was found out that the DNC had spent $150,000 on clothes for Michelle Obama? Instead, we get a hug *shoulder-shrug* and they say they are donating it to charity, so it doesn't count.

    * Imagine if Obama had a 17 year-old, unwed, pregnant daughter up on stage and was shaking hands with an 18-year old black "gansta" who is dropping out of high school? Imagine the assualt from the GOP! Instead we get praise about how Christian those "darn" kids are since they plan to get married! You Betcha!

    * Imagine if Obama's wife was a secessionist, such as Palin's husband is? Say she wanted Illinois to seceed from the union... Can you imagine FOX with THAT headline? Instead, we barely hear a thing about it.

    I could go on, but you get the point. Like I said, I very rarely post political comments like this, but these last few weeks have just been mind-blowing to me. I had to say something.

    Oh, one more thing...why is it that Obama is getting hit by Palin on his "re-distribution of wealth" comment, when she herself created a large tax on oil companies in Alaska, then with that money sent every Alaskan citizen a $2300 check? Isn't THAT "re-distribution of wealth--also known as socialism"? Any neo-con(men) want to answer that one?

    Imagine if McCain had sat under David Duke's teaching for 20 years, like Obama did under Wright. The left would leave that alone?

    Imagine if Obama had a 17 year old, pregnant, unwed daughter and NBC caught her sneaking out the backdoor of an abortion clinic.......

    * Imagine if it was found out that the McCain had gotten a home for $300,000 under market value with the help of a convicted felon.

    * Imagine if McCain had a wife whose salary had doubled when he became a Senator and who had requested an earmark of one million dollars for her employer.

    * Imagine if McCain had been married by and had his children baptized by a priest who blamed the government for the AIDs epidemic, had said "Goddamn America" and blamed America for 9-11.

    * Imagine if McCain had a running mate who predicted an international crisis if McCain were elected.

    * Imagine if McCain had launched his political carrer from the home of an unrepentant racist?

    I could go on, but you get the point.

    Oh, one more thing...why is it that McCain is getting hit by Biden on his "Obama is too inexperienced" comment, when Obama himself stated Obama was not experienced enough to be President, that the Presidency does not lend itself to on the job training and that Biden would be proud to serve with McCain as President?

    :D

    A) Yes they would indeed.

    B) They wouldn't report it.

    He wasn't a "convicted felon" at the time, first of all. Also, Bloomberg News reported that "the couple who sold Barack Obama his Chicago home said the Illinois senator's $1.65 million bid 'was the best offer' and they didn't cut their asking price because a campaign donor bought their adjacent land." At least Obama only owns one home, not seven. At least Michelle Obama didn't show up in an outfit costing $300,000. Real "small-town 'merica", right?

    I could answer the rest of your comments, but I didn't post the comment for that purpose. What I am getting at is that every politician gets favors from people, I don't know one that hasn't. Republicans trying to smear Obama are just opening a can of worms, because their own guys are just as crooked.

    And, with my running commentary

    Imagine if it was found out that the McCain had gotten a home for $300,000 under market value with the help of a convicted felon.

    What? Well if it makes you feel better with the burst of the housing bubble the $300,000 discount has probably disappeared.

    Imagine if McCain had a wife whose salary had doubled when he became a Senator and who had requested an earmark of one million dollars for her employer.

    Is that McCain’s original wife? What is her salary? What does she do but look pissed all the time?

    Imagine if McCain had been married by and had his children baptized by a priest who blamed the government for the AIDs epidemic, had said "Goddamn America" and blamed America for 9-11.

    I don’t think McCain would be the Republican Candidate in that case.

    Imagine if McCain had a running mate who predicted an international crisis if McCain were elected.

    Either one will face an international crisis, I think Barry will do a better job of keeping a level head.

    Imagine if McCain had launched his political career from the home of an unrepentant racist?

    Is Ayers a racist now too? I thought he was just a Commie Terrorist?

    I could go on, but you get the point.

    Oh, one more thing...why is it that McCain is getting hit by Biden on his "Obama is too inexperienced" comment, when Obama himself stated Obama was not experienced enough to be President, that the Presidency does not lend itself to on the job training and that Biden would be proud to serve with McCain as President?


    Because McCain would have been a great president in 2000, why didn’t you guys nominate him back then. Oh I remember, that “the worst threat to Democracy in America is the religious right” comment was still too fresh.

    But I like Rev. Wright, does this mean you are a big David Duke supporter?

    Jdylan, your profile says you are in Iraq - Soldier?

    If that's the case, how do your comrades feel about the republicans? How about Bush?
