Debate, and discuss, just dont Bore me.
Let The Candidates Decide
Published on September 16, 2008 By Dr Guy In Democrat

In any election, since media became a factor, political campaigns have had negative ads.  Some worse than others (the Daisy Ad), and some just funny.  Most are just designed to show the shortcomings of the opponent, figuring (rightly or wrongly) that voters will not see the shortcomings without being lead to them.

So who is the king of negative ads in this campaign?  If we ask the media, or the pundits, or the emotional "Wanna-bee" reporters, or even blogdom, I am sure we are going to get many answers.  But when it comes right down to it, who would know more about what ads their campaign is running?  The Candidates.

So let's allow one to speak for himself:

"If we're going to ask questions about, you know, who has been promulgating negative ads that are completely unrelated to the issues at hand, I think I win that contest pretty handily," Obama said.

I guess the messiah has spoken.  So for all the foreigners thinking that McCain is the bad guy, who are you going to believe?  Some biased media pundit?  A blog?  Or the candidate himself.

I wonder if Obama is going to run this ad in all 57 states?

Now we know why Obama is making more money for his campaign than McCain. He needs the extra doug to cover up his constant foul-ups. He needs money for an ad, then he needs money for an ad to expalin the previous ad that made it seem as if he was bashing himself.

If a guy who bashes Bush is called a Bush basher, what do you call Obama bashing on himself?

It actually is just a demonstration of why he should not be president.  A mistake like that, and Russia gets half of europe.  And he is worried about Bush (should be Clinton) selling the US to the Chinese?

Well, also the fact that I'm not sure if it's okay that the guy in charge of nuclear missles can't figure out the magic internet box.

The times are a-changing, though.  I like my leaders to know what's going on in the world.  

 teh interwebz and teh computerz are a major part of global society these days.  It's kind of like giving the telephone a pass and sticking with letters and carrier pigeons because they still work.

You dont have to be a letter carrier to mail a letter, and you sure dont need to know how to send an email to get one sent.  It is called delegation.  And we actually had a president that would not do that.  You may have heard of him.  Jimmy Carter?

They are a team, she is one heartbeat away and with McCains age it is VERY relavant to talk that way more so than with Obama.  Now I am not saying that McCain will not make it through his presidency he may live as long or longer than his mom, but I think it is a fair qestion.  Maybe she at least knows how to spell potato....lol
