    This Wednesday night at 8:00, Obama will put his millions of dollars to good use and take up half an hour of TV time.

    Honestly, I already know everything he's spoken about and what his issues are. I watched the debates, I watched both conventions... I think most Americans are informed.

    So the reason for doing this is to control the news cycle in newspapers, internet blogs and 24 hour cable TV shows. But I think this is irrelevant and he won't control it the next day and the weekend after unless he's going to pull an October surprise and announce something new and positive that will REALLY get people talking. This will also force the McCain campaign to react which will catch them off guard.

    So, if Obama reveals something new, what could he talk about?

    Its a brilliant move.

    Snl just said that because obama is so far ahead, they are going to do a half hour variety show.

    Michelle and barrack will sing solid as a rock but instead it will be solid, solid as barrack.

    About as "brilliant" as having a 24/7 Obama satellite TV station in my opinion. You whackos act like this guy is the Second Coming -even while admitting you don't believe in God! Since when does the fact that one politician went back on his word about public financing and as a result has far more money than the other guy -which means he can buy up a half hour prime time on all four networks while his opponent is sticking with public financing - amount to "brilliant" under our system of government? That makes McCain stupid to take a fellow American and Senator colleague at his word and you figure he just should have known better than to take this guy at his word or what? But who among you Obama supporters would admit that should also mean that Obama is no less trustworthy to FELLOW AMERICANS as Putin and even Ahmadinejad I wonder? Obama wasn't trying to deceive the leader of a hostile or semi-hostile nation, but a fellow American. And it isn't McCain with pages of questionable and outright fraudulent FOREIGN sourced donations either. Are we playing "he who takes in the most in illegal contributions gets to win", or is it "whichever semi-adversarial population or country can flood this guy's campaign gets to win" or what?

    Gee, do ya REALLY think ANY foreign country has our best interests at heart here? LOL

    This is a democratic republic that does not worship any politician above our own system of government. This isn't Nazi Germany where the leader meant more than their democratic system all because Hitler was a charismatic speaker too.

    Obama and his historically ignorant supporters give me the willies like no other political candidate in my life has -and it has nothing to do with his race, but his POLITICS. I wouldn't vote for this guy no matter what color he was! Are you people nuts? Whining like spoiled babies over 5.5 - 6.1% unemployment, historic lows on inflation and interest rates - only because you haven't lived long enough to see REALLY bad times? And NOW with the current uncertainty in the stock market and evidence we are headed for another cyclical recession, you actually are stupid enough to believe INCREASING taxes on those who create jobs is the answer to this? OMG. This is Jimmy Carter all over again EXACTLY -"those tax hikes are only going to hurt the rich!" ROFLMAO! Oh, I suggest you actually research how well that really worked out for this country before casting that vote!

    Get it through your STUPID heads -liberalism, while well intentioned and I am the first to say it is well intentioned -operates from a misinformed premise. Which is why every system of government based on the principles of liberalism FAILS. It is why the people most hurt by liberalism are the very people they wanted to help the most. What actually works best is counter-intuitive to the principles of liberalism but actually results in the greatest good. And history is replete with examples of BOTH and why it is true. Those who refuse to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. I'm not one of them -but I am outnumbered by those who sure are and will have to pay the price for that idiocy.

    Unbelievable ignorance among our youth -who should sue our public school system for what they have done.

    This guy is nowhere near ready to hold this position -while liberals stupidly whine about whether a governor is qualified to be VP or not. (Funny they never claimed it made Reagan, Carter, Clinton or Bush unqualified for PRESIDENT -just THIS governor for VP, who also happens to be FEMALE, huh?) Just as happened with Carter (governor, how odd?) -our President will be chosen by the most historically ignorant and politically stupid among us.

    Who is Obama targeting with this buy? The undecideds. If after all this time they haven't gone for Obama, there isn't anything he can possibly say that will sway them now.

    Obama will likely win. But just as happened in the Democrat primaries -he made no gains among the undecideds and won by the same percent he had while all the undecideds went for his opponent.

    I'm pretty curious as to what he'll talk about. Guess we'll wait and see. Kinda wish there were just more debates instead, though.
