QuoteSo, put it all together, and in the past week Obama has stayed steady or lost support in every party identification group, yet Gallup says his overall support went up four points. And McCain stayed steady or went up in every party identification group, yet we are supposed to accept the claim that his overall support went down by four points? Anyone have an answer for how that is even possible? Well, actually I do. There is one, and only one, possible way that such a thing can happen mathematically. And that way, is that Gallup made major changes to the political affiliation weighting from the last week to now. Gallup has significantly increased the proportional weight of Democrat response and reduced the weight of Republican response.How Liberal Trolls are Working to get McCain elected President

While McCain has contradicted himself again, tying himself in knots of nonsense, Obama has dithered and missed the opportunity to show real leadership. Obama is clearly afraid (with reason) of being jumped on opportunistically (with racist undertones) if he steps out of line. This is a lose-lose situation for all of us except those who want (capitalist extortion) business as usual.

once again biden has contradicted the head of the ticket !biden against clean coal in the USHussein was in favor of clean coal during the primaries, when he was grubbing for votes in places like kentucky.Either Biden isn't speaking for his ticket when he saysQuote"We’re not supporting clean coal"or hussein has done yet another flip-flop (or was simply lying to try to get votes, which didn't work: hillary won kentucky 65-30)Hussein needs to make a statement on this matter to clarify whether his position on clean coal is a) the position he laid out during the primaries (in favor of clean coal)orb) the position biden has laid out for the ticket (against clean coal)Clean coal clearly has a vital role to play in america's energy future, and by opposing it biden is playing into the hands of OPEC and screwing over mr and mrs america

Biden: The gift that has kept on givingQuoteBiden gaffes since the weekend: 1) "President Roosevelt went on television to announce the Depression"; 2) "my helicopter was forced down in Afghanistan"; 3) "Obama will never take my guns away"; 4) "That was a terrible ad Obama made against McCain"; 5) (two hours later) "That was a fine Obama ad; 6) "you better work on those pecs" (to a reporter Joe jabbed in the chest). Remind me which ones I missed.

fwiw, you can get fairly decent odds that biden will be replaced as hussein's mate by hillary.Biden's been a disaster since being named
