    I watched a couple of hours of CNN yesterday and came away with the following. Your "journalists" are stuck on reporting on how the campaign is being run and not on the substance of the campaign.

    You could help voters more by really examining the solutions they are proposing on fixing our problems and spend less time on what inane tactics they are using to throw dirt on each other.

    This truly is one of the most important elections in many many years and since I respect your network and your show, I think you should take a leadership role in informing the public. I thought that was what the fourth estate was supposed to do.

    McCain likes to act like a war hero, yet he won't release all of his naval records. Is it because he is hiding the fact that he crashed five planes. Or maybe it is because he started the Forsetal fire, killing over 150 of his fellow Americans. Doesn't sound like a war hero to me. But then again Republicans have a way of making things up don't they.

    I was looking at the piece displaying Senator McCain speaking with a
    group of people behind him. They looked like workers. They had no expression, some people were looking off, into space, paying no attention. Where was he speaking. The group looked totally
    uninterested. And I do understand ! He continued to blast Senator Obama about the air for tires. Obviously, he is not aware of all the information to support, exactly what Senator Obama stated.

    The speaker of the house shows me exactly what as been going on. The Democraticsand the speaker have done NOTHING since she became the speaker if you listened to her President Bush and the Republicans were put down and nothing accomplished.

    I believe that this whole situation with this congress recess was planned.....
    See they did this because Obama will come up with this energy bill some how he is trying and will get credit. for this energy bill. He is to choose his VP.
    Also, who is placing these adds on the internet for CNN I looks like it is a internet that belongs to Obama What is the deal.

    Will the American people wake up. People believe that this 2008 campaign started equally but, Obama started with 2 states. Do you want the American people believe this. This was a set up. Hilary was set up and she was trying to get everything settled before the end of the election Hilary was put on hold instead of taking care of it quickly. Money money money. If your watch Obama and Hilary together now on TV you see Obama Nerous and turned away from her just like in the congress Obama did not want to talk or shake her had..Actions speak louder the words. He thinks he can do anything and is constantly making up situation to turn toward miscommunications and away from him. Look at ll the miscommunications and when they show up.

    Would Ted Kennedy let this happen that papers were not filed for these two states?

    Albert Lee. If only this was a perfect America.

    Did hyou miss all the news reports and blogs on what the Big Oil comapnies have been doing with their profits. Exxon Mobil reinvested their profits into buying up their own stock (that had practically ht rock bottom). That's why we can't pass laws believing that they will do the right thing because if we allow John McCain and the Republicans to extend the Bush tax cuts and make them permanent, our country will be further up the creek without a paddle.

    We can't allow ourselves to be manipulated again. We have to think smart and hope that persons with Anderson's moral credentials will ask the right questions.

    I don't ususally discuss politics outside my family but I just can't take it anymore. It's time the American people took their heads out of the sand and paid attention to the facts. We need a President that is exceptionally intelligent, witty, worldly, and charismatic with an overabundance of leadership skills and the ability to speak without reading verbatum from his notes. Obama graduated from Punahou Academy with honors and is a Harvard Law grad. McCain finished fifth from the bottom at Annapolis. As much as I respect McCain's military service and sacrifice in Vietnam, that doesn't make him a great leader. Let's face it, imany of us have aging parents and when they reach 72, we usually start questioning their ability to manage their personal affiairs. Vote for the smart, young, wordly, charismatic guy.

  10. shelly taillieu from canada

    Hi I am from Canada and have followed all the primaries. I was and still am a Hillary Clinton supporter. I think she didn't get treated fairly throughout the primaries and belive she would have been the better choice. I do like Obama but do not think he is ready (he should have been her VP for a few years the ran for predident). With the polls for Democratics decreasing is there any chance at the convention she could still become the nominee? And do most democratics feel that they jumped to Obama because of the hype and now wished they had supported the best candidate?

    Regarding Billary/Hillary Clinton's ... why in the world would Obama or anyone who supports Obama and campain consider Clinton on the same ticket? HELLO!!! Why in the world would Obama or anyone who supports him think he should pay Billary/Hillary Clinton's campain debt? With respect to Mr. Barack Obama, you need to take care of NUMBER 1. Yourself Mr Obama, only your family and yourself. You are the HOPE and FUTURE of America. You are a diplomat. That is what has everyone up in arm's. Even those prejudice Democrats. My brother told me one day, he voted for Hillary, and he hates her guts, and for the first time in his life he will vote republican. His granddaughter is half african-american, shame on my big brother Larry. Prejudice is the only motive. Personally I believe in the words of our late great brother Bob Marley, "until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eye's, there will be war"! Listen America if Obama acts like he is already president, think of the self confidence that takes. The diplomacy! WAKE and see the light! Obama and whomever he choses for his running mate. If it were the Billary/Hillary Clinton's personally the secret service men would have their work cut out for them. Clinton's would just as soon see Obama out of their picture. TOO BAD!!! From Montana ... Go Obama Go!!!

    CNN needs a little balance on that panel. Each night the same thing three, four or five "correspondents" bashing McCain. Here are the key issues on the energy debate:

    1) Obama blames Congress (McCain) for lack of leadership on energy. The problem is that Obama does not understand that it is the market that makes energy choices. The markets opted for cheap energy while it was available. Obama continues to argue that he is smarter than the market...this is very dangerous.

    2) The crux of Obama's arguments on this and all issues is to say the positions McCain has taken are wrong and that McCain has changed policy. Well it is true McCain has changed policy as the risks have changed. As McCain has led the country though difficult times he has had to make difficult judgments in a changing environment. Obama on the other hand has chosen to vote "present" whenever an issue is too difficult and changes his position week-to-week, even thought the basic facts of the issues have not changed (on oil, on the war, on campaign financing). Obama has a very thin record, and as he continues to adopt each of McCain's positions, it is clear who is demonstrating leadership. Better if Obama spends a few more years in the Senate developing a record and fine tuning his political policies before we offer him the most powerful position in the world. How David Gergin or the panel turns this into racism requires twisted, or at least biased logic.

    I would like to make another observation on the coverage on the drilling issue, and McCain and Obama media hype. Obama stated that McCain had a very poor record on energy policy votes regarding everything he is talking about now, and voted against every piece of alternative energy legislation that has come up.

    Obama is correct and yet the media acts as if this is a gotcha game where both sides are just attacking each other (No Obama is correct and John McCain is telling half truths and stating deceptive misleading rhetoric), when it is substantive factual attacks Obama makes and Snide quips without factual support McCain makes. Somebody start actually reporting on the political news instead of entertaining it up for 7th grade average viewer IQs, according to the media!

    Who cares! What happened to the story about 16 police men killed in China? Nothing on CNN tonight! Who cares about 14 million $ baby pictures. Come on CNN, bring us the news not the "People Magazine" gossip!!

  16. Shane O'Sheeran Las Vegas, Nevada

    I am curious as to why CNN is not actually covering the substance of the major energy policy speech Obama gave today. Is was detailed, in-depth and all substantive and actually Obama laid down the same type of challenge to America today the JFK did in 1960. He stated his plan included making us 100% free of foreign oil in ten years! Now that is a major fact filled, substantive, major policy statement on one of the three major issues facing the country today, and not a single segment on that,

    At the same time the media is covering John McCain's speech, and letting him get away with making false, misleading and half truth statements about the Obama policy stand on multiple details. Then they run his statement about Obama's "air in the tires" statement that was simply a nasty condescending untruth, and they don't tell you the facts that state that Obama is correct, as the Bush administration experts, Charlie Christ and many others have stated and study's show filling your tires and getting the tune-ups Obama spoke about would reduce our annual oil consumption every year by 286 million barrels, which is as much as new offshore drilling would produce only every four years!!!

    Now why do you think that is I wonder...Hmmm a great story and facts to show one candidate outright lied, and completely misstated the other candidates positions and the media lets that candidate get away with it, and without informing the public of facts that controvert the incorrect candidate... NO BIAS, NO BULL HUH!

    I would like to make another observation on the coverage on the drilling issue, and McCain and Obama media hype. Obama stated that McCain had a very poor record on energy policy votes regarding everything he is talking about now, and voted against every piece of alternative energy legislation that has come up.

    Your story on finding human feet, Aug 4th, washed up on the shores in New York brought to mind the stories about feet showing up on the shores of Vancouver, B.C. Canada. What is going on? Are they some how related? Anderson, can you find out?

    August 4, 2008 at 11:01 pm |
  18. Henry Lukenge

    But who's really out of touch? The Bush Administration estimates that expanded offshore drilling could increase oil production by 200,000 bbl. per day by 2030. We use about 20 million bbl. per day, so that would meet about 1% of our demand two decades from now. Meanwhile, efficiency experts say that keeping tires inflated can improve gas mileage 3%, and regular maintenance can add another 4%. Many drivers already follow their advice, but if everyone did, we could immediately reduce demand several percentage points. In other words: Obama is right

    Dear Anderson,
    Please get some additional panel guests. Candy Crowley and David Gergen can respectfully see both sides of the McCain – Obama fence, but Roland Martin is extremely biased and tunnel-visioned. I have been a log time fan of 360, but I can't take much more of him. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE! I welcome an entire black panel as long as they discuss topics rationally and with an open mind. Thank you.

    Mcciain is lame!! He is a worser speaker than Hillary. He constantly looks at his paper and sounds like he barely believes what he is saying. I could not go and even listen to him because he speaks with no conviction. Why isn't the question being asked to Mccain more about the votes he constantly made against alternative energy.

    August 4, 2008 at 10:40 pm |
  22. Phil, georgia

    This is the last straw!! Here goes Bill again trying to derail the Obama campaign by bringing up the hot topic of race. Bill knows that if he is falsely accused of being racist, then their will be a big backlash from the white community to make Obama lose. Then Hillary can run again in four years. Clintons need to get on board or go away!!!

    I have watched your segment in Their Own Words several times. Everytime you have shown Obama first and in a clip that is much more flattering than McCain. In fact, once you showed the back of McCain's head for the entire clip. CNN is accused of being biased towards the Democrats, why play into this? Just be fair so I can make up my own mind!

    Comments on Senator Obama Barack's energy policy.

    First, if the oil compaines re-invest their profit into generation of renewable energies, they will not need to pay the windfall profit tax. Second, if the government will give tax credit to encourage companies to invest in generating renewable energies, the oil companies will continue to enjoy the tax credit that they are having it right now.

    This seems to be perfect for both sides. Big oil companies can keep their profit and use to invest in generation of renewable energies. This in turn creates new jobs and stimulates the economy.

    Obama has just as much experience as John F. Kennedy had. McCain says that he doesn't have experience because he doesn't look like the presidential candidates of the past.
