    seems mccain and the gop are flooding swing states with automated phone calls...much in the fashion of what bush and the gop did to mccain in sc in 2000.

    Negative ads...are they gonna work for mccain or work against him?

    With 17 more days or so..how desperate will both candidates become?
    Obama has told his supporters not to get "cocky" and assume this is a win.

    I don't think this will work unless you are already against Obama.

    The independents may just be put off by this.

    This is an example of what the old John McCain wouldn't do.

    Since this is the first time the Dem has had more money than the Repub, he can out add him by 4 to1.

    I think the "moral majority" have proven in the past that they are willing to go to any legnth whatsoever, no matter how unscrupulous or how disgusting and immoral to win. They don't care if they cheat... they are so power hungry and corrupt.

    Won't work.

    Harsh reality is superceding all the lies that they can come up with, this time.

    On CNN a lady called in who's seven year old daughter answered the phone to one of these calls talking about bombing the pentagon. The little girl was I guess scared and confused. Did the McCain camp ever think about children answering the pphone? They are only doing this because this how Bush beat him in the southern states.

    I feel like mccain is just discovering technology of the nineties to run against a guy who is organizing with technology of today.

    McCain seems like he isn't using the most current tools available, somehow.
