AMEN!!! Wonderful points made by BOTH of you! It's too bad that some people still have their blinders on and won't listen to any of those points! You can bet your butt that if it was their next door neighbor they would be concerned. But since it's for the presidency and he's "the GREAT one" that they simply don't care. Teresa, you are right on with this one!  ;)

Not undecided....30+ years of experience to 4 years...still voting McCain!
In an interesting video that has surfaced on Al-Jazeera, Libya's Moammar Gadhafi is shown giving a speech in which he describes Obama as someone with an "African and Islamic identity" running for president of the U.S. with Arab and Muslim backing. WorldNetDaily was the first national website to highlight these comments, which were monitored by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

"All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man [Obama] . . . [and] may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns" to his campaign, said Gadhafi. The Libyan dictator described Obama as "a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia."

Claim No. 1: Obama's campaign is funded by the rich, big corporations and foreigners.

"Barack Obama was the only major presidential candidate this year to completely reject contributions from The Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs that have dominated our politics for years," the Obama site says of the persistent online criticisms of its fundraising.

"Instead, this campaign has been owned by the more than 3.1 million everyday Americans who have donated in small amounts."

Not so, according to campaign finance records. Nearly half of the $600 million raised by Obama to date has come from wealthy donors and special interests. Obama's allies months ago dropped their ad linking Republican rival "Exxon John" McCain to Big Oil after it came to light that Obama had taken far more money from Exxon-Mobil than McCain.

But since you mentioned's an example of a woman living HIGH ON THE HOG...

It's amazing how Democrats shun Republicans when we bad mouth one of our own crossing party lines. You think that is soooo amusing. I find things amusing myself. For instance, DEMOCRAT presidential candidate AND vice presidential hopeful Senator Joe Lieberman backing John McCain, a REPUBLICAN. Where was all the concerns with him backing John McCain?  The same people that all voted for John Kerry to be president and Joe Lieberman for VP, now consider him to be a sorry SOB. --Mr. Hillbilly

to make people feel sorry for him.................. :police:

Barack Obama asserted during Wednesday night's presidential debate that someone shouted "kill him" when the Democrat's name was mentioned at a Sarah Palin rally.
But the head Secret Service agent at Tuesday's Palin rally in Scranton, Pa., said: Never happened.

The Scranton Times-Tribune first reported the alleged incident on Tuesday in a story written by reporter David Singleton, saying that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett was addressing the crowd and mentioned Obama's name, a man in the audience shouted "kill him."

Other media outlets picked up the story, including ABC News, MSNBC, and The Associated Press, with most attributing it to the Times-Tribune.

During the debate Obama mentioned to John McCain "some of the rallies that your running mate was holding, in which all the Republican reports indicated were shouting, when my name came up, things like 'terrorist' and 'kill him,' and that your running mate didn't mention, didn't stop, didn't say, 'Hold on a second, that's kind of out of line.'"

But Bill Slavoski, the agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton, was in the audience at the rally, along with an undisclosed number of other agents, and he said not one of them heard the comment.

"I was baffled," he told the Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Times Leader after reading the Times-Tribune report.

He said the Secret Service conducted an investigation and could not find a single person to corroborate Singleton's allegation.

"We have yet to find someone to back up the story," Slavoski said. "We had people all over and we have yet to find anyone who said they heard it."

Times-Tribune Metro Editor Jeff Sonderman said on Wednesday: "We stand by the story."

But Slavoski insisted that Singleton was the only one to say he heard someone yell "kill him."

I won't "slam" the MESSIAH. I have always been FOR John McCain. The man has more experience in his little finger than Mr. Obama has in his whole body. I don't understand your comment about anyone ever being 'for' anyone, just against Obama. Care to enlighten me? ???
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by an advocacy group that has been accused of election fraud in other states.

Charlene Davis, co-director of the election board in Jackson County, where Kansas City is, said the fraudulent registration forms came from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. She said they were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote.

"I don't even know the entire scope of it because registrations are coming in so heavy," Davis said. "We have identified about 100 duplicates, and probably 280 addresses that don't exist, people who have driver's license numbers that won't verify or Social Security numbers that won't verify. Some have no address at all."

The nonpartisan group works to recruit low-income voters, who tend to lean Democratic. Polls show Republican presidential candidate John McCain with an edge in bellwether Missouri, but Democrat Barack Obama continues to put up a strong fight.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said the agency has been in contact with elections officials about potential voter fraud and plans to investigate.

"It's a matter we take very seriously," Patton said. "It is against the law to register someone to vote who does not fall within the parameters to vote, or to put someone on there falsely."

On Tuesday, authorities in Nevada seized records from ACORN after finding fraudulent registration forms that included the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys.

In April, eight ACORN workers in St. Louis city and county pleaded guilty to federal election fraud for submitting false registration cards for the 2006 election. U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway said they submitted cards with false addresses and names, and forged signatures.

Ordower said Wednesday that ACORN registered about 53,500 people in Missouri this year. He believes his group is being targeted because some politicians don't want that many low-income people having a voice.

"It's par for the course," he said. "When you're doing more registrations than anyone else in the country, some don't want low-income people being empowered to vote. There are pretty targeted attacks on us, but we're proud to be out there doing the patriotic thing getting people registered to vote."

Republicans are among ACORN's loudest critics. At a campaign stop in Bethlehem, Pa., supporters of John McCain interrupted his remarks Wednesday by shouting, "No more ACORN."

According to its national Web site, the group has registered 1.3 million people nationwide for the Nov. 4 election. It also has encountered complaints of fraud stemming from registration efforts in Wisconsin, New Mexico, Nevada and battleground states like Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina, where new voter registrations have favored Democrats nearly 4 to 1 since the beginning of this year.

Missouri offers 11 electoral votes; the presidential candidates need at least 270 to win the election.
