    mcain told absolute falsehoods regarding romney's record and now that romney defends himself he is the sore sport.

    where were the journalists here? surely there can be no bias in the media.

    romney was the only republican running in the primaries and now we get mcian the democrat running as the most likely republican nominee

    the GOP is now officially dead

    McCain very successfully defended his statements in the CNN debate last night. Romney is the liar and very much the sore loser.

    Nah ... you're reading way too far into it. Just a general statement about it beginning, not who specifically tossed the first brick. If Romney's allegations are true, then McCain actually started it from a principle standpoint.

    What did he say? "Did not," followed by sticking out his lower lip? MCain can't even successfully see daylight, much less defend himself.

    I can tell you who tossed the first brick. It was McCain in the FL primary in an effort to garner all those military votes for himself. McCain falsely charged that Romney supported setting a timetable to get out of Iraq. You'd have to use a very long stretch of imagination to come to that conclusion, but "dirty politics" evidentally worked for McCain in FL.

    In this week's debate, McCain's personality come to the forefront: churlish, cantankerous, negative—obviously resentful of Romney’s financial success which has enabled him to contribute to his own campaign. Apparently to McCain’s mind, this is something that voters should find appalling and galling??????

    It would be interesting to know how much of McCain's personal funds--as well as each of the other candidates--have been expended on their own campaigns.

    Tsk tsk ... your assumptions would be silly. One, you assume I am a Republican, and two, you assume I will support whoever is the Republican nominee.

    Your assumptions in both cases would be incorrect.

    Once again, gunny, 'scuse me. We both know all about AssU and me, assume.


    I note you offer a condemnation yet you fail to offer any explanation. What have you, my friend, to explain your tendensies towards backward politics?
