    According to FactCheck.org...one of the most reliable organizations around in keeping the candidates honest and their site shows that McCain/Palin have repeatedly lied or distorted the facts to fit their agenda:

    FactCheck.org: McCain-Palin Distorts Our Finding

    Off Base on Sex Ed
    September 10, 2008
    A McCain campaign ad claims Obama's "one accomplishment" was a bill to teach sex ed to kindergarten kids. Don't believe it.

    FactChecking McCain

    He made some flubs in accepting the nomination.

    Maverick Misleads
    September 4, 2008
    A McCain ad comparing Palin to Obama isn't all above board.

    FactCheck.org: Maverick Misleads

    and perhaps one of the most disgusting ones

    Obama and 'Infanticide'
    August 25, 2008
    The facts about Obama's votes against 'Born Alive' bills in Illinois.



    there are a whole host of instances where McCain distorts the facts. Do we want a liar in the white house, AGAIN?

    Obama voted for partial birth abortion. You can't really argue with that. It is infantacide. Pretty much everyone agrees except for a few loons.

    Maybe we can overcome the bias Corporate/Mainstream/Driveby media that is allowing McCain/Palin to lie without calling them on it.

    I think everyone now knows that Palin has lied repeatedly about saying Thanks, but no thanks.......

    Yet she continues to do it and continues to get loud cheers in her Republican pep rallies.

    Republicans are such sheep.

    Us democrats didn't elect Dean just because of one crazy scream.

    And Edwards is done nationally for cheating on his wife.

    The Republicans can look you right in the eye and lie, and you still vote for them.

    Don't say Clinton looked us in the eye and lied, because any of us would do the same thing. It was none of our business that he was boinking monica.

    Karl Rove won't even go testify, let alone lie under oath. LOL.

    No, people do not agree. People are under informed. If I have a severly retarded/mongoloid baby coming out, I want to have a late term abortion.

    Or, even if I would keep the baby, which I would, I don't want to force others.

    And Palin wants to FORCE you to keep the baby even if you were raped. And that everyone disagrees with. Bitch!!!:clap2::badgrin:

    Are you suggesting that such a thing is avoidable?

    Obama has been pretty straight forward. If you were honest yourself, you would know the difference.

    Just because the GOP admit that they are dishonest crooks, doesn't mean Democrats are.

    Are some democrats? Sure. But almost every GOP is wrong/bad for America.

    Here is one honest one.

    Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) 1/11/07 "the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam" “dangerously wrongheaded strategy that will drive America deeper into an unwinnable swamp at a great cost.” "To ask our young men and women to sacrifice their lives to be put in the middle of a civil war is wrong. It's, first of all, in my opinion, morally wrong. It's tactically, strategically, militarily wrong."

    You may say the surge worked, but that's only because you don't know what's going on in the middle east. What did the surge accomplish? When are we leaving? When do we stop spending $20K a month in Iraq? HOw are the Sunni's going to do in Iraq? What about political reconciliation? Are we going to have future problems in Iraq? Is Mook Tada El Sadr going to be the future leader of IRaq? Is it good that we made Iraq shiite when Iran is shiite?

    You guys haven't a clue.

    Well to quote that very famous democrat Bill Clinton, "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is, To you a lie is when someone does something You as a democrat don't approve of. To me a Republican, if she had said, "I've Never supported that Bridge to NoWhere, and told congress no thanks" thats a lie. However, because she said "Thanks but no Thanks" which in fact she did several times in Sept. 2007, you as a democrat want to see that as a lie. It would be like me saying, Joe Biden is a liar because didn't think Obama was qualified to be president now he does. I'm sure you don't think Joe is a liar do you?

    So what you're saying is: if factcheck.org finds a candidate has lied/misstated/misrepresented facts YOU PERSONALLY would NEVER vote for that candidate.

    Is this what you're saying?

    What a hack, bobo. You've lost all perception to hyper-partisanship.
