Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Great post, That Guy! Neither are saviors and I doubt either one would wreck the country or lead us into a Golden Age. I can't stand the "since I'm pro X candidate I have to bash the Y candidate" mentality. Support you're candidate because of your belief in them. If they're strong enough they'll likely win the election. Obama actually started out a year ago with this type of anti-mud slinging message. Unfortunately, his supporters came out in full force and ignored him. There are definitely ad campaigns on both sides that are piling it on pretty thick but as far as water cooler talk goes the anti-McCain/Palin is just as strong if not stronger than the pro-Obama.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Nice post TG.
I think you are more of what I am looking for in a candidate than the others! Had you mentioned immigration reform (you may have noticed, nobody else did), you'd be perfect!
The biggest shocker to me..........are these people the best we can do???
HOW can that be?

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

I think Saden gets a bad wrap around here. I think he makes no more sweeping generalizations for the liberals than jsarno (sorry Js. No hard feelings. Just judging from past posts you've made that many people have tried to shoot down. I've got nothing against you or your republicanism no matter how much it makes me crazy. ) for the conservatives.

It seems like people are just getting frustrated over the youtube clips, which if that's the case, seems rather petty. I'm sure Saden could back his clips up or his opinions if someone actually bothered asking instead of just patronizing him and other wise saying how far he's fallen from intelligent to lemming status.

I think there are certainly people on both sides of the fence who make ignorant, sweeping generalizations. There are people here who I generally agree with, but I find their manner in presenting their opinion to be completely embarrassing. By the same token, there are people that I don't agree with but I think they present their case admirably.

And I don't think it's petty to get frustrated over the youtube clips. I would have much preferred saden came on this post and said "here was my take on the VP debate. I think Biden solidified his case and this is why" or whatever the case may be, rather than "here's a misleading youtube clip...you decide." That's...well that's just patronizing to the rest of us.

Of course saden can back his opinions up. He's done it before, I'm not sure why it's incumbent upon us to ask him to do it again.

Well, I don't take offense to it at all, cause there is no point in leading a horse to water if they have no intentions of drinking. There has NEVER been anyone here that has changed their mind on a presidential candidate. So why waste your time? Although, comparing me to Saden (in politics) is not all fair, he is everywhere around here, and my posts have been sparse.

ps- I think you forget that I am an independant even though I certainly do not like what the left is doing.

All in all, no hard feelings at all.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Thought this was interesting. Maybe there is not such a gap between Biden and Palin after all.

I'll save some people here the time..."Well it's Fox News, what do you expect. They're so one-sided you can't trust anything they say. Why not a more balanced, reputable source like MSNBC...blah, blah, blah, blah, blah"
