Oufffffffffff the republicans are using the same play book as M14. Addressing and commenting on everything except the issues at hand. Attacking the person and not the policy.

Another question is, will the so-called mainstream media find any of this worth reporting between now and Election Day?”


Of course not simply because its worthless and their are more pressing issue to discuss than peoples associates or individuals a candidate might have crossed path with 18 years ago.

the republicans are firing blanks and polls nationwide indicate that.

Who cares about the US Elections? There are more important issues to concentrate on.

How about we talk about Palin's abuse of power and how Obama slugged McCain for a home run during the second debate :D

The report did not fault Palin for firing her public safety commissioner Walter monegan. Period.
If you read the report, you will see that there was nothing unlawful or unethical about replacing a cabinet member.
The Democratic ( Obama supporter ) chairman of the state panel that released the report said “these findings may help people come to a conclusion on how they should vote.” Palin’s lawyers claim that panel members, not the governor, “have abused their government power.”
Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan said: She never directly asked me to fire him,"
“‘For the record, no one ever said fire Wooten (ex. Brother in law of Palin) Not the governor. Not Todd. Not any of the other staff,’ Monegan said Friday from Portland.
Governor Palin And Monegan Split Over The Budget As Palin Sought Cuts, And Monegan Pushed For Spending Increases.
In February 2008, Monegan Publicly Released A Letter Supporting A Budget Item The Governor Previously Had Vetoed.
Monegan Consistently Undermined Administration Procedures On Budget Matters, A Fact That Was Brought To His Attention.
“Palin spokeswoman Sharon Leighow said the governor is now at the halfway point of her term and it’s natural for her to make changes. Palin wanted the public safety department headed in a new direction, Leighow said.” Anchorage Daily News, 7/13/08) .
Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan was fired as part of a legitimate budget dispute.
As for the second debate I hope when the voters are tired of being force-fed a steady diet of pro-Obama rhetoric, will come to realize the truth about him. And in conclusion I will let BBC answer.
2200 BBC World News America anchor Matt Frei says McCain the older man seemed to have a glass half-full outlook and appealed to Americans' innate optimism, while Obama the younger man came across as more sombre.
p.s
Obama is ahead in the polls.

I am sure there was some fat lady at the Flyers/Rangers NHL game. So many boos for the hockey mum. Even when the organisers tuned up the volume on the music the crowd upped their tempo.

Latest polls:

Obama: 48% 234 electoral votes.

Too close to call states (125 electoral votes): New Hampshire (4), Pennsylvania (21), Ohio (20), Indiana (11), Virginia (13), North Carolina (15), Florida (27), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5).

good luck

Final nail in McCain's coffin


Colin Powell Backs Barack Obama

Former U.S. Secretary of State and military supremo Colin Powell endorsed Democrat Barack Obama's White House bid, in a stinging rebuff to Republican candidate John McCain.

Former secretary of state and military supremo Colin Powell Sunday endorsed Democrat Barack Obama's White House bid, in a stinging rebuff to Republican candidate John McCain.

The former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff expressed disquiet over the rightward shift the Republican Party has taken under McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin -- who he said was not ready to be president.

Powell, on NBC program "Meet the Press," said Obama had "met the standard" to lead "because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America."

"I think he would be a transformational president. For that reason I will be voting for Senator Barack Obama," said Powell, who was the first African-American to occupy the top US military post.

Should the mixed-race Obama win on November 4, "all Americans should be proud, not just African-Americans," he added.

"It would not just electrify our country, it would electrify the world."

Collin Powell is another useless general..., I never understood his stands on anything. If the US diplomacy has suffered under Bush it's because of him and not Bush nor Cheney If you go back in history, he's the reason for ending Iraq one war prematurely leaving Saddam inpower and setting up the stage for an Iraq 2 at much higher cost. He's indecisive and a poor leader. I guess he's supporting Hussein Osama for a promised position and to regain some credibility within the black community after everyone else washed their hands of him. I hope he gets it.

haroun wrote:(IMO) The right choice for the USA is John McCain - Hillary is in big trouble, and Hussein obama's record is very unpatriotic that makes him unelectable. This guy spent his youth with druggies and foreign lefties criticizing western civilization and colonialism. Americans refused to elect John Kerry a decorated Navy officier because because he protested Vietnam, do think they're going to elect the son of a Nigerian muslim national as their president?

Go McCain!

Anyone who voted for Obama will disillusioned And despised his vote. The newness of Obama is being praised by the biased national American and foreign press, and democrats will get their revenge for George Bush two victories. I think in the near future , Obama will be attacked by those who voted for him. They will see and feel his lack of experience as a leader, his radical push for higher taxes in a time already too taxing and witness his push for increased socialism. They will find out the facts of how Obama came out of nowhere , and put up the seed for this most liberal of senators to succeed over more qualified candidates. Obama’s rhetoric will be disclosed as just that, more hot air with no substance, no truth..
In the end, what matters most in life is not who was right but what is right. Sorry Haroun your guy and my favorite did not make it. Anyway, I found some names of Lebanese ancestries won in the elections do you have any name to add to it.

Senator elect Jeane Shaheen of State of New Hampshire a Democrat is the wife of Lebanese-American attorney and political operative Bill Shaheen,

Darrell Issa's mother is of Bohemian German descent and his father is of Lebanese descent. Darrell is an American politician and formerly a CEO of a Consumer electronics company. Since 2001, he has been a Republican member of the United states house of representatives , representing the 49th congressional district of California .

Charles William Boustany Jr (born February 21, 1956) Boustany is a heart surgeon, was born in Lafayette Louisiana to Madlyn M. Ackal and Charles W. Boustany, Sr., M.D.; his paternal grandparents were immigrants from Lebanon
represents Louisiana’s historically Democratic 7th congressional district as a Republican since 2004.

Nick Joe Rahall II (born May 20, 1949), American politician of lebanese descent, has been a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives , representing West Virginia’s 3rd congressional district since 1977 . He is the Dean of the West Virginia delegation in the House of Representatives. He is currently the chairman of the House Resources Committee .
