    ...getting out of hand! I'm turning my television off. but before I go – I don't think McCain should be throwing rocks. Who was supplying Cindy McCain in her numbing years.

    Palin asks Senator Biden during their debate, "...oh, Joe, you're still looking back."
    Recently Palin is looking back for trash on Obamas years as a child.

    How 'bout Palin talk about Troopergate, now that's current NEWS – with lipstick!

    McCain / Palin campaign is a disgusting love affair with themselves, case in point: complete lack of focus on the ISSUES! We don't want to here about Ayers, that was 40 years ago, Issue # 1 ECONOMY, we need leaders Obama / Biden to get the ECONOMY back on track.

    I am really dismayed by the fact that in the presidential debates that only certain questions can be asked. Are the candidates afraid of their record on abortion, gay marriages, or their associations with people that may credit or discredit them? How about an open forum that the candidates can ask each other unscripted questions. It is in my opinion this is the only way that we can truly know how each candidate stands on these and other important issues that face us and helps us make our choice as to who should be the next president.

    Is there a reason that the ACORN voter fraud in Nevada and is being looked at in other states is not being talked about on this site or news or shows?

    McCain and Mike Huckabee might have won the election, instead he chose Palin and decided to be vague...

    You just talked about Sarah Palin's Troopergate incidence, but I'm wondering why noone is reporting on the Bristol Bay ethics investigation? According to Bob Woodruff on the Discovery Green Channel, Palin "took off her Governor's hat" to publicly comment on her opinion where she thought that the mining industry should be allowed to negatively effect the Salmon run in Bristol Bay, that was supposed to be a protected environment, by blowing up and then opening gold mines in the area.
    The mining company used her picture and comments in their publicity to push for the rights to mine there and eventually they won. It seems that it was misleading in that the people thought that "the Govenor" supported it. I wish someone would look into this and report it to the general public, along with her belief that polar bears and wolves are not endangered!

    A couple of weeks ago, George Bush said that we need to get the credit card companies back on track so that Americans can pay their day to day expenses. That makes me believe that Pres Bush thinks it is okay for the average american to live on credit while the banks rake in the interest.
