Do you believe Richardson, Biden or Obama. Why would Hussein start telling the truth now. Obama doesn't have a truthful bone is his body. I hope there is truth to the Bradley effect or we are screwed.

thats the point, 250,000 is not the figure. Keeps changing depending on who you ask. His running mate stated 150,000 was the number. You guys got sold a line of crap. Hopefully none of you libs will need surgery on a day the surgeon decided not to work because working overtime or extra hours would further tax him. Or your clogged toilet or lack of water can wait a few days because the small business owner plumber had to fire his employess and now is on his own. Oh well at least you guys will sleep better knowing the people who don't contribute to society will get handouts and will be able to buy Budweiser and Camels.

Biden was being consistent. Obama has said that those making under $150,000 would get a tax credit and nobody making under $250,000 would see their taxes go up. Both claims can be true if those making between $150,000 and $250,000 see no change in their taxes.

Wow, I don't even know where to start. First off, as was stated previously, you guys are getting the tax plan numbers mixed up. Obama's plan is to increase taxes for anyone making OVER 250k a year. I'm not exactly sure what you're using as your reference, other than Fox News, but 150k to 250k= same tax and <150k=lower tax. I'm going to trust what Obama says he's going to do over what Bill Richardson says Obama is going to do. As far as Palin goes, I am honestly frightened by the fact that people want this person as their VP. As far as I'm concerned, she is the single biggest reason McCain is struggling right now. It was a stupid pick by McCain, and I'm sure he realizes this by now. Why do you think they kept her from the media for as long as they could? As soon as they unleashed her, she crippled the campaign. She's a joke, they Republicans would have done far better with Lieberman.

There's such a huge difference in politics on each side of the water. Our liberals are socialists by the US definition and our conservatives liberal. I don't think we have an equivalent to your conservatives. It's all very confusing.....It did make me laugh seeing Biden and Obama described as 'liberal' though (as I consider myself Liberal, but by Western European standards).

Do you honestly believe Prez candidates hand pick their own VP candidates? :laughing:

I'm very pleased with Sarah Palin as the VP nominee. She's fairly young, vibrant, intelligent, isn't afraid to expose corrupt behavior within her own party, doesn't associate with unsavory characters and she represents Main Street America in a way that neither Obama or Biden ever could. She isn't perfect by any means, but the woman has balls and speaks her mind instead of reading from a script or cue cards - I respect her immensely for that. :thumbsup::applaudit:

John McCain's campaign is looking for a scapegoat. It is looking for someone to blame if McCain loses on Tuesday.

And it has decided on Sarah Palin.

In recent days, a McCain “adviser” told Dana Bash of CNN: “She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.”

Imagine not taking advice from the geniuses at the McCain campaign. What could Palin be thinking? :laughing:

Also, a “top McCain adviser” told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is “a whack job.”

these are mccains own people saying this. they had a script for her to closely follow which backfired in the debate and couric interviews. now that she has strayed, she is bein painted as the scapegoat.

Nothing backfired on Palin in the debate, oh dear hipcheese. Quite a few liberal pundits were taken by complete surprise at how well she handled herself and begrudingly agreed that she held her own with Biden. Sarah had no script or cue cards, nor did she know what questions Gwen Ifill was going to ask in advance. Considering Ms. Ifill is a big supporter of Obama and even authored a book about him due out close to or on election day, - dare I say it - I agree with the lib pundits (other than being surprised) on this issue. :applaudit:

Maybe religion shouldn't play a role, just like race but it does just like race. Fact is many vote for and against Obama for race just like many didn't support Romney for being a mormon. Thats the world we live in, not my rules. My point was about Obamas slip ups such as 57 states, and stating he was Muslim in an interview with Stephanopolis. His slip ups go unnoticed by the media where as Palins get pounced on.

Do you believe in seperation of church and state? Because I GUARENTEE you Obama doesn't.

It is and was the heart of everything he learned about Christianity for 20 years. So unless he rejects Completely the teaching of his church, there are a LOT of questions that should be asked of him.

BTW, I wonder, do you also think that Palin's Christianity and faith shouldn't be challenged? Because frankly, I was offended as a Christian by many in the media and even some on this board by the way she was put down for her Christian beliefs.

I do believe in sep. of church and state, very strongly. I could guarantee you that Obama does, too. He's stated over and over again how much he believes this. He's not winning anymore votes by doing so, so I think there must be some genuine belief on his part in it. Should the Wright issues have been talked about? Definitely. The guy is a nut. As far as challenging Palin on her beliefs. Her beliefs SCARE ME! Do I feel threatened by MOST Christian beliefs? No. But hers, most definitely. I'm with Matt Damon on this one. C'mon, dinosaurs 6,000 years ago? U.S. soldiers in Iraq on a "mission from God" ? Her stance on gay people? What about her comments about Alaska having to "be right with God" so she can do her job? If someone is Christian and gets into office, knows how to make decisions without it, that's totally fine with me. But mixing religious beliefs into political decisions is not only stupid, it's dangerous. (See Bush)

Let me simply focus on Obama here, as the rest of the answer is more about faith itself.

Obama is a disciple of black liberation theology. When people say he is a socialist, they are wrong. What they are picking up on is the liberation theology which has fused marxism with thomastic theology. He spent twenty years being discipled by his pastor in liberation theology, which teaches that the church MUST work to empower the (in this case, black) masses by shifting riches from the rich to the poor. To free them from the economic bondage (slavery or sin) is salvation.

That my friend, IS OBAMA'S 20 YEARS OF DISCIPLESHIP.

Now, go back and look at some of his statements about redistrubiting wealth, his wife's statement about being proud of America for the first time, etc. etc.

When Obama states that he is for the seperation of church and state, he has in mind the "Conservative Christianity." However, the heart of liberation theology is alive and well in Obama. My question, is why that wasn't challenged?

And by the way, how do you know God DOESN'T want us in iraq? Do you think God didn't want us in Germany in WWII? Are you insulted by the fact that FDR and Winston Churchill would lead in prayer, or that tbey even prayed together? I am not saying he does, but I am questioning your absolute belief that he doesn't.

Your confusing two distinct issues... religion with God. I did NOT say PALIN was right, I asked, SPECIFICALLY, how Steelcity knew GOD didn't want it, as he seemed ASSURED God didn't. That is all. Or do you think, once again, God didn't want us in Germany? I have a difficult time with anyone attributing whether God does OR DOES NOT want us in war. Simply put, none of us are in God's war council, nor does he consult us concerning the future. .

As to the issue of religion and war, I DO have a problem when the reason for war is to spread religion at the tip of a sword (or gun, or any other weapon), especially when racial connotations are invoked. By the way, those who want us "infidels" destroyed are far and few inbetween in the Arab world comparatively. The sad part is, they have a loud microphone which has been overly amped.

I can say with absolute certainty that I would have been against the Invasion of Iraq if my own grandma was president. I very vocally opposed the sanctions on Iraq during the Clinton administration. I only include myself as a Dem here because I registered as one so i could vote in the primary/caucus - I'm much more liberal than most Dems. Bipartisan hypocrasy does indeed suck.

I am not saying he does, but I am questioning your absolute belief that he doesn't.

I'm not questioning whether or not his church seemed a tad radical, it does. As I said, Rev. Wright is a nut. I held off on basing my opinion on the guy until his little "WHITE FOLKS CLAP LIKE THIS, BLACK FOLKS CLAP LIKE THIS" speech, followed by a dance. That is something that should be called into question, but I don't think we need to throw Obama under the bus for the comments Wright made. People very often can go to church and disagree with much that is said and preached. I'm sorry to say this, but I cannot respect those who believe everything they hear in their church. So to point and say "Obama must believe this, too!" is just a bit silly.

About his wife's comments, though. Perhaps it was just bad wording on her part about it being the first time she's proud of her country, or maybe she did mean it. But if she did, can you really blame the lady? She grew up in the Civil Rights era. You can love what your country stands for and can/will be again, but hate where it's at currently, I'm proof of this.
