    Acorn investigation is not the focus really it's smear Obama week and let McCain off the hook in hopes of getting Palin to come in. Let these so called illegal voter registrants come in and try to actually vote then you'll have something to call fraud.

    Chris in Toronto,
    It does matter to us who the rest of the world prefers for President! We are a global economy!

    Erica almost looked as silly as she did in that mohawk 6th grade picture she showed us a while back.

    In the words of a McCain/Palin supporter today, "I'm mad, I'm really mad." But the reason I am mad is at the disgustingly negative, viscious, hateful attacks on Obama. They wouldn't be doing this hatefullness if they were ahead. This is just despicable on both McCain and Palin. I have never seen such outrageousness in a campaign in my 58 years. It has to stop!!!

    Ed Rollings is spot on Erica. What we are seeing is the Republican party grasping for daylight in desperation. All that is left is to now see how low they will stoop in the negative and far-fetched politicking. This one is Game Over.

    I would like to ask a question. Why is it assumed that those registrations are supposed to be for padding votes for the democrats? WHY is it assumed? Why can't it be someone who just doing dirt. Why does it have to targeted toward the democratic party.

    Question: Is Drew Griifin of the CNN special investigations unit edver going to investigate the validity of charges that the Obama Campaiugn makes against McCain/ Palin. His last two reports seemed tinged with innnuendo. A mole in the unit?

    Indiana has a strict voter law, as of this year with 4 criteria. The registration alone doesn;t cut it. You can't vote simply by registering. You need a photo ID and matching address to the registration. ANYONE can fill out the application, and fraudently, but it has to be approved.

    AC clone I can tolerate... any others... I'm not so sure. Good night.

    ACORN controversy is just "More of the Same". Next phase in "Operation Chaos".

    What? Is it going to be 2 or 3 months now before you decide who the 44th President is? Decide it in the Courts?

    UNBELIEVABLE! The Right Wing will go to any lengths to steal the Election. Disenfranchise the voters.

    What a 'Laughing Stock'.

    Acorn is funded by Obama. Like he needs to cheat. Why would he do that? I have to agree with the ladies earlier, I've never been polled. I will vote for McCain if we find out that Obama is trying to cheat.

    I agree in part with Andy's first two culprits: Alan Greenspan absolutely refused to allow any regulation of derivatives , and W went merrily along. The NY Times has an excellent article today on Greenspan's "Legacy" and includes several other cohorts.

    Here in Chile EVERYONE (at least everyone i've talked to about this) belives that Barack Obama should be president. As Chris in Toronto said... who would be the best man when it comes to international relations.
