    CARROLL, Dick Chaney is in a safe secluded location just as he always has been since he was first elected. He is running the show from a back room.

    Just an observational question,

    As example the tire inflation issue which Obama is absolutely correct about and McCain is lying about. As Tom Foreman stated that all the DOT (You know the experts in our government who actually know about cars and mileage as averse to dept. of energy economists) studies showed Obama was correct, and then went on to use one single statement by a dept. of energy economist to cast doubt on Obamas credibility, even though every other expert in the country states Obama is correct, and that it would save about 268 million barrels of oila year, as much as four years of offshore drilling McCain proposes, and that savings would be every year...

    As a matter of factual reality almost everything coming out of the McCain campaign is rhetoric, innuendo, deception and false statements, trying to paint Obama as something he is not, and almost everything coming from the Obama campaign is factually correct, valid and either substantive, or response to false attacks by the McCain campaign, why is that not reported accurately every day as averse to furthering the McCain storyline of a referendum on Obama, which is a straw man distraction from what the media should be reporting, WHY?

    I am disgusted with the political analysts who aboslutely leave their backbone in the closet. When they omit the reason Obama is not faring as well in the polls is unrelated to race. Its the number one reason. Even when Anderson asks the role of race in this election the Best Political Team on tv stutters. And if CNN leads the way in keeping it honest and fails with its political commentators that the public cannot find the strength to vote for the best candidate–Obama.

    Obama is right about the oil drilling offshore. Approach that medhodically. AS a former Petroleum Engineer, I can assure you that there are enough capped wells in Oklahoma,Texas,Colorada, New Mexico,Kansas, Nebraska....to last 100 years. Open up those wells and allow those royalty owners to start making money againh. that will surely stimulate the economy. Then perhaps drill offshore.

    By thwe way...McCain blast OBAMA by calling him a celebrity huh? He also compared him to Paris Hilton..etc. Man, he must be pulling for straws. I guess he's such a maverick in his own Republican party and have never heard of one of the greatest Presidents ever...who was a celebrity and extraordinary actor...President RONALD WILSON REAGAN.

    I support Obama's tax increase because it's a sign of TRUE PATRIOTISM. I am appalled to hear that citizens who earn over $250,000 and beyond are not willing to accept this. Just think, McCain and those who earn such have the audacity to say Obama is not Patriotic. Unpatriotic is when you do not pitch in to help your country out of a crisis by paying a little bit more tax! Obama got it RIGHT like JFK..."AS NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT AS WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY!" That's the spirit for America. SAVE OUR COUNTRY...ALL OVER $250,000 pay the tax.
