It’s bleak Friday for McCain campaign

  1. This campaign does not fully realize the size and ferocity of the fire they’re playing with. Race, religion, politics all balled into one big atomic bomb of emotion…

    This campaign is leading America backward and the destination will be devastating.
    It’s irresponsible and frightening for them to pander to the basest, ugliest emotions in America. I really worry about the McCain campaign’s figurative “red meat” becoming literal.

  2. Some people are born to be president. It’s not easy to change the tide of fate, though I do feel bad for those who try. Poor McCain (and Al Gore).
    Even as far back as the beginning of the primaries, I doubted the Republicans would have a candidate strong enough to win this year. Maybe Bloomberg could have, if he had decided to jump into the race.

  3. If Obama wanted to emulate McCain’s attack ads, we would hear robocalls in the Heartland informing America’s patriots that McCain:

    a) was in the pocket of former Lincoln Savings & Loan president and convicted criminal Charles Keating;

    b) was buddies with fellow criminal Republicans Ted Stevens, Tom Delay, Scooter Libby, Trent Lott, Jack Abramoff, Don Young, Larry Craig, Tom Feeney, Alberto Gonzoles, Mark Foley…etc;

    c) accepted political donations from the Watergate convicted criminal G. Gordon Liddy;

    d) picked a runningmate mired in scandal (Troopergate) and has acted “unethical” according to her own people – – and doctored expense reports to bilk her taxpayers;

    e) gave up information to his communist captors in North Vietnam, whereas other American prisoners did NOT;

    McCain has a lot to answer for, but Obama hasn’t stooped to that level. You can’t call yourself patriot while voting for criminals.
    Yep, if Obama had decided to “go there,” this campaign would have been totally different — and I’ve had more than enough ugliness as it is.

... and that's my two cents
