    I like how he missed 1/4 of the votes since he's been in the Senate, and I bet that doesn't count all his "Present" votes.

    There is no right or wrong answer to when does a baby become a person. It is a personal value held by each individual.

    I thought he did a good job of trying to explain a very difficult situation.

    Raised a Catholic and having spent 6 years in seminary studying to be a priest, I was always against any abortion. Now, I think it is the choice of the woman involved.

    If you don't agree, you don't agree. Either way there is no answer that can be proved definitively by either side.

    Plan on the right bringing this up more and more since they don't have a real platform, party or candidate right now.

    That and McCain saying Obama wants US to lose in Irag but then stating that that is not calling him unpatriotic.

    McCain is over the river and through the woods to win at any cost.

    And now McCain has to embrace the very idea he has been railing Obama on now ... a timetable for withdrawing from Iraq ... a real Maverick would stick to his guns on this issue and call the POTUS out on this.

    ROFLMNAO... Hussein Obama has sponsored 122 bills which didn't make it to the floor; and he's allowed his name to put on another 630ish bills; which begs the question: SO WHAT?

    The poge here is better at these flaccid little assertions than responding with supporting argument, so for the purposes of berating her...

    Tell us Poge, specifically, what about advancing 130 bills (98% of which didn't make it out of committee) in the senate qualifies Hussein Obama, the Socialist Muslim, to be President of the US? Now we know that you're selling him your vote because he promises to give you more welfare via Vet Benefits... so that is not the issue; the issue is how advancing a bill in the senate represents sufficient experience to be the Commander in Chief of the US Military and the Chief Executive of the United States?
