I have noticed that in their desperation the Obama camp has come up with a new slogan, the other side tell lies! Brilliant
Barack Obama and his senior advisers are under fire for ignoring the advice of Democratic senators and governors who are concerned that they do not know how to beat John McCain.
Barack Obama under fire for ignoring advice on how to beat John McCain
Mr Obama has never won an electoral contest against a strong Republican candidate.
The Democratic presidential candidate's slump in the polls has sparked pointed private criticism that he is squandering a once-in-a-generation chance to win back the White House.
Party elders also believe the Obama camp is in denial about warnings from Democratic pollsters that his true standing is four to six points lower than that in published polls because of hidden racism from voters - something that would put him a long way behind Mr McCain.
The Sunday Telegraph has learned that senators, governors and union leaders who have experience of winning hard-fought races in swing states have been bombarding Obamas campaign headquarters with telephone calls offering advice. But many of those calls have not been returned.
A senior Democratic strategist, who has played a prominent role in two presidential campaigns, told The Sunday Telegraph: "These guys are on the verge of blowing the greatest gimme in the history of American politics. They're the most arrogant bunch Ive ever seen. They won't accept that they are losing and they won't listen."Web Link
mccain gaining...obama imploding like kerry did...rasmussen dailies...
'New state polling from Missouri has helped move that state from from “Leans Republican” to “Likely Republican” in the Rasmussen Reports Balance of Power Calculator. With this change, McCain now leads in states with 200 Electoral College votes while Obama is ahead in states with 193 Electoral College votes. When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 259, McCain 247."
Wow...definitely a sign of desperation that this is the best they can come up with..and continuing to imply that it is a dubious claim that she said "no" to the Bridge is hilarious.. has Alaska taken any funds for said bridge? Are there any plans to take any funds for a Bridge? Are there any plans in her office or in any Alaskan govt office for a bridge?
Ok..sounds like a "no" to me. What more do you want?
I have to repeat what I did last election..I really regret that this election is going to be lost by the Dems on the basis of stupid stuff like this, not as a sound referendum against the modern Democrat Party platform...
Let's just hope that the next time the Dems come up with a good candidate, so we can have an election based on ideas, history, facts, and policy proposals..
If you check the record, Palin KEPT the money earmarked for "the bridge to nowhere" while governor but did not build that bridge when it became a hot potato. Good political theater but wrong on the facts.
Do you want to elect someone who can tell a good story or someone who actual does what they say they do? Do you care if your politician have any integrity?

let's see...biden practically writes most onerous bankruptcy bill ever...friend of the middle class and poor?...let's see...obama votes up more war appropriations bills than hillary?....hmmmm, obama votes up fisa amendment....oops! there goes 4th amendment....integrity?
Not gonna do your work for you, anonymous..check again about how much she "kept" and what it is for.
good try, but fortunately we live in a truly free press where we can each be responsible for finding out the truth for ourselves.
Pam, I agree with you 100% about Obama and Biden.
I was not excited about McCain..he has betrayed me and my beliefs and principles far too often in the last 10 years...becoming in essence a RINO. But, I was going to hold my nose and vote for him as less onerous for our country than Obama.
His choice of Palin gives me hope that he has figured out where he went wrong. I still have to hear her ideas on Border control and social Security, freedom of campaign speech etc. But, in any case, even if they don't agree on something, I find it refreshing that she is so open about where they disagree. Confirming once again which party is the "big tent" party.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
