    MORE ENDORSMENTS FROM MCCAIN:

    McCain passed his wireless microphone to one woman who said, "I can't trust Obama. I have read about him and he's not, he's not uh — he's an Arab. He's not — " before McCain retook the microphone and replied:

    "No, ma'am. He's a decent family man [and] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that's what this campaign's all about. He's not [an Arab]."

    McCain: Obama not an Arab, crowd boos - Jonathan Martin and Amie Parnes - Politico.com

    They planted this woman. Funny thing is, she almost flubbed her line. AND, she came off as crazy. Look at the back of her cranium!!! Why didn't they show her face? Come on! You want to talk shit about Arabs on national tv, then don't blur out your face coward!!!

    In addition to the man who said he feared Obama as president, another predicted the Democrat would “lead the country to socialism.”

    As if Bush hasn't led us to socialism. He grew the government

    Under the Bush Administration, the “shadow government” of private companies working under federal contract has exploded in size. Between 2000 and 2005, procurement spending increased by over $175 billion dollars, making federal contracts the fastest growing component of federal discretionary spending.

    This growth in federal procurement has enriched private contractors. But it has also come at a steep cost for federal taxpayers. Overcharging has been frequent, and billions of dollars of taxpayer money have been squandered.

    Dollars, Not Sense: Government Contracting Under the Bush Administration :: Committee on Oversight and Government Reform :: United States House of Representatives

    At McCain's rally, some guy said:

    “The time has come and the Bible tells us you speak the truth and that the truth sets you free,” the man added. (what a joke)

    Yet another voter implored McCain in plain terms: "The people here in Minnesota want to see a real fight."

    McCain promised the audience he wouldn’t back down — but again sought to tamp down emotions.

    "We want to fight, and I will fight," McCain said. "But I will be respectful. I admire Sen. Obama and his accomplishments, and I will respect him."

    At which point he was booed again.

    "I don't mean that has to reduce your ferocity," he added over the jeers. "I just mean to say you have to be respectful."

    The anger is plainly worrying McCain and his campaign. Already viewed with skepticism by the conservative base, they don’t want to throw a proverbial wet blanket over the enthusiasm of the worker bees of the party. But they also fear a backlash from less partisan — and still undecided — voters seeing clips of the angry activists on TV and online.
