Everything thing will be in place tonite at the debates, except for maybe McCain. If that is the case, I think Obama should utilize the air time to do his portion of the debate. Let commentators ask questions and let him answer. They can then dig deeper into anything Obama says.
McCain wants to play political games with the voters?, go ahead, look like a complete ass. The right wants to hide Palin and her walnut sized cranium space?, go ahead.

Completely unprecedented behavior coming from the right. Which is in lockstep with the last 8 years of Republican control (which has drifted so far from a true conservative platform it is unreal)

ps. We held presidential debates while Sherman was marching on Georgia

pss. Will McCain actually have a point of view on this Wall Street bailout? I mean since he had to be there, shouldn't he have an opinion?

Are you F^@# ing kidding me?

This is the VP candidate? This?!??! ok, show of many of you after watching this clip would vote for Couric over Palin. She is stupid. Her debate with Biden should be on "Pay per View". It is going to be epic.

an internet forward that makes sense to me

This works for me!

It's crazy, but it just might work .....

I was doing some math and came up with similar results to this
85 Billion bail out. This e-mail is not mine but it does a good job of
matching the math. Billions, it's easy to say, harder to imagine.
Please take a minute and look at the math then think about one person
having the control of it all.

I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a
"We Deserve It Dividend".

To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000
bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man,
woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and

So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billon that equals

My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve
It Dividend.
Of course, it would NOT be tax free. So let's assume a tax rate
of 30%.

Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes. That
sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their
pocket. A husband and wife has $595,000.00.

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your
Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.
Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads
Put away money for college - it'll be there
Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
Buy a new car - create jobs
Invest in the market - capital drives growth
Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves
Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean - or else

Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the
folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company
that is cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed

If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do
it......instead of trickling out puny stimulus payments.

<> If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out
every adult U S Citizen 18+!

As for AIG - liquidate it. Sell off its parts. Let American
General go back to being American General. Sell off the real estate.
Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

Here's my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn't.

Sure it's a crazy idea that can "never work."

But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!

How do you spell Economic Boom?

I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85

We Deserve It more than the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC

And remember, The Family plan only really costs $59.5 Billion
because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

Economy so bad, Bush changes vacation plans to "console"

Bush has now 'Nationalized' more corporations than Hugo Chavez, and still can not give a speech.

McCain: We should deregulate health insurance like we deregulated Wall Street.


OK, a correspondent directs me to John McCain’s article, Better Health Care at Lower Cost for Every American, in the Sept./Oct. issue of Contingencies, the magazine of the American Academy of Actuaries. You might want to be seated before reading this.
Here’s what McCain has to say about the wonders of market-based health reform:

"Opening up the health insura More..nce market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation."

So McCain, who now poses as the scourge of Wall Street, was praising financial deregulation like 10 seconds ago — and promising that if we marketize health care, it will perform as well as the financial industry!

This clip is 7 minutes in length but well worth it.

Things I don't understand

The Republican party chose Palin to be the VP candidate. Does this mean that out of all of the prospective VP candidates she was the best option? She is the choice the Right made to be a heartbeat away from the single most powerful seat on the globe?

She embodies the best that they could find?
They believe that if the McCain/Palin ticket is elected and McCain, God forbid, is not able to serve Sarah Palin should be the President of the United States of America?

I am not surprised that the zealots instantly embraced her but I can not believe that the rank and file of party members with an IQ above room temp truly believe that this person is a proper choice.

I just don't understand.

My favorite is when Karl "Melonhead" Rove calls Obama arrogant.
13% of the population thinks Obama is a muslim.

Bless him and his team.

I saw this live and then posted at Lolifes blog. I had to add it. This should be required viewing for every US citizen.

The Bridge to nowhere

It is alwasy interesting when the truth is 'spun'. Maybe she has what it takes to be a republican VP

Palin doesn't tell the whole story, just the parts that make her sound good.

Apparently not everyone in Alaska thinks she is wonderful. I don't think she is a liar, just a republican candidate.

More on Palin and her bridge to nowhere

Fred Thompson: big bag of wind. Same old story. Horrible delivery.

Mitt Romney: Surprising weak start. Stiff and a bit confusing, and I have been impressed with his speaking skills in the past. This is not a well written speech.

Huck: I always like his common man delivery. I find him genuine. I don't agree with him very often but I do like the man

Rudy: Thought he was a dick pre-911...then I liked him post 911...then I thought he was a dick, wasn't a dick, was a dick.....tonite I thought his speech was not as witty nor as intelligent as he obviously is.... I did find him effective while talking about Palin.

I'm very tired of the " Democrats will expand government and increase taxes" line....what has happened to Government these past eight years??

I am also tired of the sound bite about Palin that they keep on hammering "...she has executive experience"

Sarah Palin: Love the kids names....I think she might have inhaled.....nice speech...very John Cougar Mellencamp-esque......pretty home-spun...Norman Rockwell...June cleaver...all wrapped into one speech. ....and she went on the attack.....this could be one scrappy VP.......she lost me on the "lets drill for oil" rhetoric...we have plenty of oil, just not enough refining.

She is going to build more nuclear plants. That is awesome. I'll eat this computer if one is built in the next 4 years.

Her content was impressive. Her vocal delivery and timbre will be comedian material for the next two months and if they win, for the next 4 years.....

Overall: Good off the blocks. She put some "smack" out now it is ok to give some 'smack" back...

Bravo!!, Republicans enjoy a win/win

Hurricane Gus caused a convention re-vamp. Republicans do not appear rude and unfeeling.
Bush does not appear in person. No one has to hug him or shake his hand. McCain able to put a bit of distance back in his campaign.

Gus does not pound the Big Easy and the admin is prepared this time.

Sarah speaks tonite.....I can't wait.

When you prop yourself up higher than others see you....

Excuses, excuses

Shouldn't political parties hold their 'own' to a higher standard than the public does?
Are you tired of excuses from the opposite party of where your beliefs lie?
Are you equally tired of your own parties excuses?

Websters says

Hypocrite: One who affects virtues or qualities he does not have.
