    McCain picked Palin because of her ultra conservative views, and she has succeeded in energizing that wing of the party. At the same time, however, she has alienated many moderate Republicans who are not able to imagine merging the concepts of "Sarah Palin" and "President," should anything happen to McCain. The Republican stable is so devoid of potential presidential candidates that Palin may emerge as its nominee in 2012. If that happens and she retains her current view of the world, many Republicans would become Democrats.

    Its the anti-puppy kicking ideals of our fore-fathers that made this country great!
    If you want to advocate a pro-puppy kicking agenda, go ahead and vote for Obama..
    but I dont know how you can live with yourself..

    There is no such thing as "unbiased media." :P

    It's really quite simple. If someone disagrees with Obama or doesn't support Obama, they're racist, at least in the liberal viewpoint. If Obama loses the election, it will also be because of race/racism NOT because of his substance or positions.

    Many examples of this have come up, like from John Lewis: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...101102216.html

    And now most recently from a Kansas City Star article:
    http://voices.kansascity.com/node/2493

    Did you guys know that it's an old code word for black to call someone a socialist?

    The fact is Obama and Biden have made some startling comments, which they cannot hide from. The only way to defend themselves now is to pull out the race card.

    Just for the record, if there was a Black Republican running in the primaries last year, that had similar viewpoints to McCain, I would have picked him over McCain. I understand why loads of people are excited about Obama, from a historical perspective. I too would love to put a minority in the White house and make history, if their positions and views matched with mine. OBAMA DOES NOT FIT THE MOLD. It's not because he's only 50% Black. It's not because the 50% Black he is, comes from Kenya. It's because of his substance and his positions! It's because his beliefs of what is best for this country clash and are counter to my beliefs. That HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE REASON.

    Another thing I don't get about the race argument is if I'm some racist bigot, then why in 2004 did I vote for Bush over Kerry? Both are "White" correct? It's just nonsense. To be honest from my experience I have found racism coming from the other direction. I was in one of the main walkways of my Campus the other day for a bake sale and an Obama supporter (also the President of Student Organizations) was spouting the most ridiculous comments, (paraphrasing here): "I'd gather all the Christians into a room and drown them". "Those white people must be embarrassed of McCain after that debate".

    I'm seriously thinking about doing a documentary at my school on the craziness of Obama followers.

    Lastly I want to ask why is it that violence related to this Presidential contest stems from Obama supporters? There have been several stories on the news where people with McCain/Palin or NOBAMA bumper stickers/yard signs, have had their car or properties vandalized.

    I agree. Also, the puppy in question has not provided the AKC papers PROVING that she was born in America. Really, we should ignore all other issues and focus on whether the puppy has a legitimate right to be in this country.
    that makes no logic

According to McCain, that makes Obama a socialist. McCain doesn't tell us that in doing so Obama would merely be repealing the tax break for rich puppies. McCain forgets that he voted against this very tax break when it was originally proposed. Despite this contradiction, "Joe the puppy" becomes so popular that Palin introduces us to "Ed the kitty," who is from a pro-America section of the country and who. Palin says that the embarassingly cute "Ed the kitty" would become another victim of Obama's unpatriotic unAmerican terrorist socialist policies.

    Ahem,

    It's really quite simple. If someone disagrees with Obama or doesn't support Obama, they're racist, at least in the liberal viewpoint. If Obama loses the election, it will also be because of race/racism NOT because of his substance or positions.
    There is a big difference between blatant racism and simply disagreeing with someones ideas. The "Obama Bucks", is an obvious racist depiction. Putting a noose on a effigy of Obama with a star of David (I thought he was supposed to be muslim not a jew...but whatever). Those among other things are racist stereotypes if you know anything about the history of racism in America. I guess it is all rather "traditional". The Star of David on it did surprise me though.

    Did you guys know that it's an old code word for black to call someone a socialist?
    Did you know that calling him a socialist is also ignorant and shows the person using the term doesn't know what socialism really is? Or at the very least the person is trying to scare you? Read a few books on general political philosophy before you swallow anybody's lines like that. A politicians "definition" is especially perilous to trust in. If you read some books you can decide for yourself whether they're BSing you or not. McCain himself actually advocated the same higher taxes for the rich back in 2000 at a town hall type Q & A at a high school. When a girl asked why her dad, a doctor has to pay more in taxes than poor kids parents. He said the words "Well, I think the rich can afford to pay a little more." Now 8 years later when Obama's saying the same thing, it's "socialist".

    Just for the record, if there was a Black Republican running in the primaries last year, that had similar viewpoints to McCain, I would have picked him over McCain.
    Why would a black man have similar viewpoints to McCain? I don't know any blacks who think civil rights or the later observance of MLK day is a "waste of time and money" until it became politically inconvenient to believe that. Let me tell you, black people I work with don't forget who voted against MLK day.

    I understand why loads of people are excited about Obama, from a historical perspective. I too would love to put a minority in the White house and make history, if their positions and views matched with mine. OBAMA DOES NOT FIT THE MOLD.
    He doesn't fit YOUR mold, apparently about half of the people feel differently than you. What does that tell you about the people who think differently than you? Are we commies, just stupid and can't see the "truth" or are we just plain unamerican? Do I have to move because I don't have the same views as you? (sorry rattler I just couldn't help myself)

    Another thing I don't get about the race argument is if I'm some racist bigot, then why in 2004 did I vote for Bush over Kerry? Both are "White" correct? It's just nonsense.
    What race are you that you could find in yourself the courage to vote for either of those rich white guys?

    To be honest from my experience I have found racism coming from the other direction. I was in one of the main walkways of my Campus the other day for a bake sale and an Obama supporter (also the President of Student Organizations) was spouting the most ridiculous comments, (paraphrasing here): "I'd gather all the Christians into a room and drown them". "Those white people must be embarrassed of McCain after that debate".
    Sounds to me like you overheard a conversation between some people and not really a soap box announcement from the student body. Racism comes in many forms and it's definitely a regrettable sentiment from anyone but when the things are going on like I mentioned at the top and coming out of the conservatives without any sort of official denouncement to put an end to that sort of nonsense, what sort of reaction do you seriously expect from the people on the receiving end of it? "Did you see that stuffed monkey with the Obama sticker on it? it was soooo cute!" If that's what you're expecting you're going to have to wait a long time...

    Lastly I want to ask why is it that violence related to this Presidential contest stems from Obama supporters? There have been several stories on the news where people with McCain/Palin or NOBAMA bumper stickers/yard signs, have had their car or properties vandalized.
    I haven't put an Obama sticker in my rear window of my car for the same reason, there's so many rednecks around here I'd expect to find a burnt cross on the hood when I come out to go to work. This is what happens when people let political and religious ideologies take hold of their consciousness, they get "crazy" and do things they probably would never do if they weren't getting some sort of psychological reward from their peers.
