    I like McCain a lot. But, some of the things he says make me wonder if he is still that sharp. Case in point, in an interview with ABC News on July 21, McCain said of Afghanistan, "We have a lot of work to do, and I'm afraid that it's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq-Pakistan border." In fact, Iraq doesn't border Pakistan.
    Seems to me this is a central area of the world for concern and the President (or contenders) ought to be pretty up on it. And, I know that he has traveled to that area several times.
    Thoughts? Jake

    Mark, You may be right. He may have meant Afghanistan and Iran. Seems as though the more important border is the one with Pakistan, the area where Bin Ladin is now ensconced.
    Don't misunderstand, I am not trying to catch a slip of the tongue. And, I have grave concerns about Obama.
    But McCain often seems a bit befuddled.

    Of course Obutole would be an expert on Afghanistan, if he had the time. It is his committee afterall.

    Befuddled? Maybe by not knowing what committees he is on.

    PS. He ain't on the Senate Banking Committee

    Here he is not befiddled, just more like a blithering idiot.

    Now remember folks, this guy is supposed to be sharp, articulate and with an Ivy League education.

    McCain may have forgot what countries border each other over in the camel dung corner of the world but I can guarantee you he has never forgotten he is an American. Obama? I don't even think he is one.

    The problem with Senator Obama is he can deliver a great speech, just can't speak off the cuff. He becomes VERY average.

    I think he is a typical con man and can't keep track of the con he is engaged in., This actually makes him a poor con man, not typical. Can't keep track of the current sentence because he is trying to think what kind of BS comes next. He is trying to pull the wool over everyones eyes and he has his own hidden agenda. Mike

    Well Sammie, at least your single digit approval rating congress is stepping right up with all of the solutions! They're doing a fantastic job with all of their work in lessening our dependence on foreign oil!



    I see that they have also come up with many wonderful solutions to the social security debacle!


    The ways that they want to hand welfare, social security, and health insurance over to illegals will certainly help the elderly stay warm this winter!


    YOU Sammie/deckart/2queer are the PROBLEM, not the solution!!!




    P.S.- Done any war protesting lately? you are a filthy, decrepit, piece of human garbage!!:):):):):)

    Hello again all, I've been away for a while. You know I have watched Bush mangle and butcher words when he gives speeches and act as if he has no clue what he is talking about. And I watch Obama doing the same thing in his campaign. You all know I am no fan of Bush or Obama and I think the one has been bad for this country and the other will just as bad or worse. The scariest thing is that there are some similarities between Bush and Obama,

    Both ivy league educated, and yet dumb as a box of rocks.
    Both had enormous amounts of money in their campaign coffers going into the election.
    Both supported by the extremists, one by the religious right wing idiots the other by the left wing liberal idiots.
    Both fail to give a good speech when they are not scripted.
    Both fail to speak with common sense or with any knowledge of the material on the issues that they discuss.
    Both have their own personal agendas.

    Granted, some people are not good at public speaking and never will be. However, when you have given as many speeches as both of these guys have, it seems that they should have improved on their public speaking skills to some degree. How many trapshooters do not improve with good solid practice? I personally believe that both have no common sense, have tunnel vision and have no sense of what is truly important to Americans. Further, to have as much money built up in their campaign coffers as they do or did, leads me to the conclussion that the money was funded from individuals or corporation with their own twisted motives or lobbying groups that pander to such individuals or corporations and they expect and will receive their payback. Quite frankly, I am sick of all of the special interest groups having so much control over Washington. And thats why Obama scares me, he is the left wing version of George W. Bush. Obama will pursue his own personal agenda at the expense of this country just like Bush pursued his own personal agenda, with no real benefit to middleclass America. And this country doesn't need 4 years of that.
