    If you are so fair why haven't you picked up the story about the plumber in Ohio being told we "want to spread the wealth around". "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too." Isn't that socialism?

    Isn't it ironic that McCain/Palin is always making up false statements or lies on Obama, but when people tell McCain that he and his followers are preaching/supporting hate and racism, McCain gets very offended and feels people are lying on him. But my opinion is his supporters are mostly racist and individuals filled with hate. I can tell by the supporters language they are filled with hate, and probably think of Obama as the "N" word.

    Any list of the "culprits of the collapse" would be bogus without the name of Angelo Mozillo, former CEO of Countrywide. A year ago this guy was cashing out his stock options for more than $100 million. At the same time he was telling the public that Countrywide was safe.

    A woman during McCain's campaign said that Obama is an Arab. MacCain responds" No mam, he is a descent man...." Your guests seem to think that he did a good job stopping the woman. What an offense to all Arab-American like me!! Being an Arab is never a shameful thing. We are Americans like everyone else serving our country wherever we can.

    The VP pick. My 82 year old mother told us that, although she doesn't especially like Obama, she will vote for him (In Pennsylvania) because Sarah Palin reminds her of Hitler. She was referring to her speaking style, and the behavior of people at her rallies.

    The great thing about being an American is we have the freedom to express different religious beliefs. Does that mean that my neighbor who's possibly Muslim is evil or less of an American? I feel that the campaign has gone too far. At the end of the day we're still the UNITED STATES of America. I wish everyone would just understand that.

    Hi Anderson...

    The Republicans seem to say "Sen Obama will lose if he pulls troops out of Iraq". On the other hand they say "The Surge has worked in Iraq"

    Well, if the Surge has worked then hasn't America already won and it will be fine to pull out?

    When the election is over, who will the blame fall on for the losing campaign; the VP picks, the economy, the candidate?
