    I used to like John McCain. Was a huge fan actually. He was my Bob Dole in this election--an across the aisle joke-cracking Republican that you could respect, admire and possibly vote for without worry of a book blaze taking place in front of the White House on inauguration day.

    Three months ago, McCain was my first choice.

    Man, kiss that good bye.

    I won't stand atop a dead horse and whack him too much more, but the constant barrage of negativity by McCain is where he lost my respect. And his insolence in the debate with the Obama-Ayers connection was the pipe bomb that broke the camel's back.

    Of course, McCainanites will shout, "But we have the right to know the truth! What was the extent of the Obama-Ayers relationship?"

    I have no argument with that. I would like to know as well. Were they drafting socialist manifestos? Were they giving each other oil-rubs in the sauna? Whatever. All is fair game in the unfair game of becoming the Prez.

    But McCain is not in pursuit of the truth. His primary intent is to place the word "terrorist" next to a man whose middle name is Hussein and whose last name sounds a lot like you-know-who.

    Luckily his tactic (or 'strategy?' You have to help me with that Johnny, which is it?) has not helped him at all. Americans have made it clear in polling that they find the negativity napalm that McCain is carpet bombing the airwaves with is getting a bit (read 'very') tiresome.

    We see this now as McCain has changed gears (again) and decided that Joe the Plumber is a better ploy than William the terrorist.

    It is sad to see a man in the mid-December of his years go out like this. How ironic that all of that experience he loves to rave about has apparently taught him little in the ways of civil debate.

    At any rate, all that I have written above really masks the TRUE reason why I have lost respect for McCain: He didn't wear a flag lapel pin during the debate. Obviously, this makes him a terrorist shrouded in mystery.

    McCain can't run on his record, because his record is one of failure.

    He voted with the worst president in American history 90% of the time.

    You think Obama has not run negative ads? They are both guilty of that one.

    Has Obama EVER stood up to his own party that would be a no 0%. McCain is fighting W over extended wages for people who are laid off. McCain is fighting W over the housing decisions right now. I think McCain's record speaks loud and clear. Let's take a look at Obama's record oh wait he does not have one.

    If you tell me you are going to vote for Obama now, I will tell you your full of shit and WERE never for McCain. One can not Logically go from McCain to Obama or the other.

    As far as him wanting the word terrorist next to Obama. Maybe it should be. Not that Obama is a terrorist, but he is not being honest about his relationship with one, and that bothers me.

    However to me it is a side issue. What I think will be the devastating effects of Obama policies is the issue I care about.

    Has Obama stood up to his party?

    Yes, he has.

    He defeated Hillary Clinton.

    If you make less than $250,000 a year, Obama's policies will help you.
