    These are the depths to which the Democrats have fallen to. They can't
    legitimately attack Governor Palin's character or record, so they resort
    to a bunch of stupid jokes!

    I totally agree. The other thing I found offensive was the scroll on the bottom text in your vote who won the debate. I thought OMG is this a popularity contest. The media turns it into a circus all for the sake of ratings shame shame on the media.

    Maybe if she actually answered the questions asked instead of spouting her preprepaired answers to the questions they Thought Ifil would ask then I could have some respect for her.

    Where exactly does the McCain campaign differ from Bush policies anyway?

    The media will always work for ratings, they don't care about facts unless it gets them ratings. From what I saw, all Palin kept doing was deflecting the questions or using scripted answers. Nothing more. At least Biden answered with some thought most of the time, even if he did sidetrack sometimes. Either way, still not voting either McCain or Obama.

    Yes I wonder how much thought Biden put into ALL the lies he told. But the masses like lies so he did well.

    *shrugs* Whether lies or not, campaign promises cannot be lies and those are the important ones. Even then, we never know what either will do until they are in office anyhow.

    I don't get the bolded part above. Seems to me that if he promises something and doesn't deliver then absent a full explanation of "why", it was a lie. Also, to state as a fact when you know you cannot deliver it is a lie. Maybe I am missing something.

    Example: Obama says that he will only increase taxes above the 250K mark.

    It's a lie because Obama knows that he personally cannot increase taxes, he can only approve or veto tax legislation.

    Since the "buck will stop ~there~" and he will have to decide to approve or disapprove by a veto or not, then the responsibility will be on him, he will own it, and he will certainly garner the blame. By accepting the responsibility, he will own the deed.

    Now, if, through participation in the legislative process he sends to some Congressperson or another, a bill that he wants passed, as was done -for example- with THE PATRIOT ACT, and it gets through congress in roughly its original form, and then he signs the bill into law, then he will, despite no longer be part of the Congress, in actual fact have "raised taxes" or done whatever it is.

    If he vetoes a bill that would raise taxes for the under $250,000s then it would, by an override, be Congress, not him who does it.

    So, no LIE.
