She definitely has the older teacher look but, she's the teacher that would kick your ass. Which might not be a bad thing

“It is the continuing decline in faith in the politicization of society that has, for well over a year, made the 2008 presidential race the preoccupation of the mainstream media. The media must continue to advertise the products and services of the establishment owners, just as it does for the sellers of prescription drugs and other nostrums.
Still, the outcome of the 2008 election will confirm the truth of the proposition that it really doesn't matter for whom you vote. Regardless of whether Obama or McCain prevails, the government will be re-elected, and will continue to increase its powers over you. Should you remain dissatisfied with the behavior of the system, the media will be right back to begin its campaign on behalf of "Election 2010," urging you, once again, to continue supporting the process that continues to frustrate your expectations. In the words of Emma Goldman, ‘if voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.’”

I'm a registered Democrat but this year I'll be voting McCain. Obama cares more about winning the race and being part of history than he cares about the welfare of this country. Plus his political experience is mostly as an 'event planner' & organizer.
Race and sex doesn't matter one bit to me, though one thing that's weird to me is all the hype about the 1st 'woman president', or the 1st 'black president' - even though Obama's technically not 'black'. Damn media propaganda.

"I'm not resuming my campaign until the crisis is over"-John McCain
Last time I checked, it's not over.
At the bipartisan White House meeting that Mr. McCain had called for a day earlier, he sat silently for more than 40 minutes, more observer than leader, and then offered only a vague sense of where he stood, said people in the meeting.
In subsequent television interviews, Mr. McCain suggested that he saw the bipartisan plan that came apart at the White House meeting as the proper basis for an eventual agreement, but he did not tip his hand as to whether he would give any support to the alternative put on the table by angry House Republicans, with whom he had met before going to the White House.
He said he was hopeful that a deal could be struck quickly and that he could then show up for his scheduled debate on Friday night against his Democratic rival in the presidential race, Senator Barack Obama. But there was no evidence that he was playing a major role in the frantic efforts on Capitol Hill to put a deal back together again.
Still, as a matter of political appearances, the day’s events succeeded most of all in raising questions about precisely why Mr. McCain had called for postponing the first debate and returned to Washington to focus on the bailout plan, and what his own views were about what should be done. Those political appearances are a key consideration for Mr. McCain less than six weeks from Election Day and at a time when some polls suggest he is losing ground against Mr. Obama, especially on handling the economy.
The substance of the financial crisis aside, it was already proving a tough stretch for Mr. McCain. Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, his running mate, struggled through questions about her foreign policy credentials during an interview with CBS News. Mr. McCain was lampooned on television by David Letterman.
For a moment, at least, it was Mr. Obama presenting himself as the old hand at consensus building, and as the real face of bipartisan politics.
“What I’ve found, and I think it was confirmed today, is that when you inject presidential politics into delicate negotiations, it’s not necessarily as helpful as it needs to be,” Mr. Obama told reporters Thursday evening. “Just because there is a lot of glare of the spotlight, there’s the potential for posturing or suspicions.”
“When you’re not worrying about who’s getting credit, or who’s getting blamed, then things tend to move forward a little more constructively,” he said.

What is your basis in stating this?
09-26-2008, 12:10 PM
Yeah, if she were the stupidest teacher on earth.
Couric actually looks shocked at her answers, or attempt at an answer. This interview proves once and for all why, despite being just 40 days away from asking voters to put her a heartbeat away from the presidency, the McCain campaign is keeping her locked away from reporters.

The statement he made a couple years ago in correlation and agreement to Malcom X, 'about wishing he could have the white blood expunged from his body' along with the fact that he denies it now that he's running for higher office says it all Arrogant, but there's really no need to feed the trolls. Unless you man up and decide to post under your regular s/n.

I dont know if anyone has been looking at the state by state polls, but there has been a very solid turn for Obama. Now he leads in Florida, Ohio, Nevada, Virginia, NC, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. On CNN, they were saying within a week we will know if this is a tipping point, and be similar to '80, where it was tight up until the last month, and then it exploded in one direction.

I think Obama is going to win. I also think when he is in office all the promises he made and all the "change" he talked about won't happen. 16 months to exit Iraq? We'll see. It is a lot easier running for office than actually being in office. Being white/brown if Obama wins does that mean I can blame the "man" for my problems?
10-04-2008, 06:22 PM
Definitely a possibility. It's funny how Obama changed his 'opinions' on so many different policies now that he's running for president. A great speaker he is, and a great politician he is. Unfortunately this country needs a change to be lead by a real person, not just another politician.

Here's my .02 via pictures
(btw I knew Paul didnt have a chance from the start. I'm not advocating a wasted write in vote on him.... unless you wish to make a statement rather than a vote (which i may do.)

Since most Americans don't even double check that sh*t or are even capable of critical thinking let alone doing simple math in their head, that MFer and his staff probably know that sh*t was false!
And lied about it because they could get away with it without the majority knowing about it and as you can see, all these "lies" moved people.....so they worked mostly for his benefit.

F**K EM!'**** 'em, they aren't the only ones who live here, this is my country too - and I say, **** THEM!'

I dont really think its a question who's going to win...
. I might as well vote for him. I live in utah. Mitt Romney will prob take the state as a damn write in.

McCain is such a tard. Obama is gonna crush him. The polls are showing Obama is taking the lead in states that have pretty much always gone to the conservative candidate. Even registered republican florida retirees are going for Obama.
10-19-2008, 10:20 AM
And if you really look at the polls, its stayed pretty static rather than changing, with Obama's lead mostly being inside margin of error. Sure a few of the real rah rah rah liberal supporting news outlets have all sorts of exciting things to say, but it amazingly doesn't seem to match reality of other polling groups.
