It's politics. McCain's almost certainly doesn't really believe it, but as long as they can get some voters to believe it that's what counts. You can certainly find examples of this from both sides.

Fact is, and it's unfortunate, the issues play such a small role for many voters in deciding who they will vote for in November.

Yeah I know it's how it goes, I guess it's just one of many things that sours me on politics. Maybe I'm asking for too much, but it would be nice to see less smear campaigns, more focus on the real issues like the economy and education and not choice issues like abortion and gay marriage.

Don't know, but he choose those words after all the Sarah bashing so why not use his own words against him. He is slipping in the polls and McCain is up by around 4% maybe we will see Obama is feeling the preasure.
You gotta be kidding? Obama isn't dumb enough to make a sexist remark on purpose. It is a common phrase that he used and it is being blown way out of proportion. I'd feel actually sorry for him if he actually was living up to his mantra of change but he isn't. His campaign is politics as usual and it is disappointing honestly. McCain's is similarly disappointing but not all together unexpected. Our system sucks.

These clowns work like clockwork. When you think they can't get lower they'll surprise you with a kick to the balls.

Re: Lipstick On A Pig

it's all a gotcha game.

look, obama voted party lines 97% of the time, mccain 85% (at least, before the massive pandering, but both sides have been doing it).

neither one is going to fix america - we still have big problems with economic impacts of social programs (SS, medicare), insane nuclear laws (we could make energy and transportation almost free if we wanted), way too many inmates per capita (vocational training? relocation?) and no one's really touching those things.

pre college education can probably be improved too... i know newt had some decent ideas there - i haven't really looked into it personally. obama's plan is better than nothing, but i really don't see all these teacher's he wants magically appearing. he wants more teachers AND to hold them to higher standards which doesn't work. ask the army about it...

Yeah, but there are no racial remarks that are considered "common expressions"

Just because you don't hear it doesn't mean it isn't common. Hell, dmek's signature has it and it's been there forever.

Re: Lipstick On A Pig

If you listen to the entire speech from Obama, he also referenced a "old, dead fish" along with the "lipstick on a pig".

Let's see...OLD dead fish, LIPSTICK on a pig...who could be possible be referring to? If you listen to Obama's speeches, lately, he sounds like he's always trying to be a comedian instead of someone running for President. He could be a good one if he didn't stutter so much.

If you think this was an accident, you must believe THIS was also (towards Hillary Clinton):





He's looking REALLY immature in the moments where he lets his true thoughts slip on occasion. You know, when he's not using a teleprompter.

Let's say someone refers to "big ears" without saying a name...we'd all know who was being referred to and you can bet Obama would be fired up about it. Senator Obama is just bitter that he got caught. He PAUSED after he said lipstick to get the cheers and laughs from the crowd. It was blatantly intentional.

Oh well, keep it up Obama, this is how you are sinking your campaign daily.
