    The difference between McCain and Obama is that McCain was tortured by communist, unless you believe Jane the traitor Fonda who said the POWS were all liars, where as Obama was mentored by communists. We know how McCain will govern, but we don't how Obama will Rule.

    I do not quite understand what you are trying to get us to respond to. You made comparisons that do not quite align.

    What an asshole remark.

    I fear that Obama thinks like a communist. He said will not try to disarm the people, but I think he is lying. I remember Bill Clinton.

    I think Obama does lean toward socialism, I think Regulations are good and I also prefer Capitalism over Socialism. I Don't like how McCain wants to Deregulate healthcare. Both Candidates voted for the Bank Bailout and that was disappointing. I wish McCain had picked Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani as his VP, he said he would put Meg Whitman in his cabinet as treasury Secretary. Its just weird how he doesnt seem to choose anyone from politics to be in the leadership of politics with him. But Obama does seem to evade things, he has a great talk he is endearing, charming and eloquent, but his actions are he voted for the bank bailout (that is not change! its the same as every other politician). Also when Brokaw asked Obama who he would put in as treasury secretary he actually really didnt answer the question. here is the transcript excerpt.

    Brokaw: All right. Sen. McCain -- Sen. Obama, who do you have in mind for treasury secretary?
    Obama: Well, Warren would be a pretty good choice -- Warren Buffett, and I'm pleased to have his support. But there are other folks out there. The key is making sure that the next treasury secretary understands that it's not enough just to help those at the top.


    So who is Obama putting in as Treasury Secretary? Why doesn't anyone want to know since we are in a economic crisis. In this way the only person making "change" in Washington is McCain for the fact that he keeps choosing people who are not lifers in Washington, Palin, Whitman both of whom I don't really like that much as a choice. But Obama really has not supplied me with any information except for fantastic charming speeches. So I dont know who Im going to vote for.

    This is from the debate transcript.
    McCain:
    I like Meg Whitman [former CEO of eBay and current McCain campaign adviser], she knows what it's like to be out there in the marketplace. She knows how to create jobs. Meg Whitman was CEO of a company that started with 12 people and is now 1.3 million people in America make their living off eBay. Maybe somebody here has done a little business with them.

    Obama:
    Well, Warren would be a pretty good choice -- Warren Buffett, and I'm pleased to have his support. But there are other folks out there. The key is making sure that the next treasury secretary understands that it's not enough just to help those at the top.

    Not to be nitpicking here, but how is "Well, Warren would be a pretty good choice" any more non-committal than "I like Meg Whitman"? I think both made a suggestion, but may not have made a final decision or may not have yet asked those individuals to take up that role. In any case, I see them both as offering a possibility while neither gave a definitive answer.

    When McCain came back from Vietnam, he cheated repeatedly on his crippled wife, and then divorced her to marry Cindy Hensley. In the 1980's McCain lobbied for Charles Keating, the saving and loan felon who stole billions in pension money, and took numerous jet set vacations at Keating's expense. His campaigns for the Senate were all financed with his wife Cindy's mob money. In 1994 Cindy McCain forged prescriptions in the names of her employees and stole drugs from her own charity. McCain's campaign this year is getting huge amounts of oil company money. His pick for vice president abused her power as governor of Alaska by using the power of her office for a personal vendetta. McCain is 72 years old, has had cancer 5 times and is on 5 different medications. He is so out of it, that his staff does not want him talk to the press unscripted.

    Barak Obama graduated from Harvard Law School and went back to his community to help people who had lost their jobs when the plants shut down. He met his wife at the law firm where the worked together, and he has never cheated on his wife, and she has never forged prescriptions or stolen drugs. Obama has never lobbied for anyone that stole billions of dollars from pensioners. Obama's campaign is financed by 1.5 million contributors. Obama is taking no medications and is available to talk to the press unscripted. His three main priorities for America are getting out of Iraq, universal healthcare, and American energy independence.

    There is no question in my mind which one of these men will make a better president.

    All the Republican smear tactics in the world cannot change these facts.
