McCain seems really flustered. He keeps fumbling his words.

You're right. If it benefits your guy, who the  cares! Let everyone and their dog vote!

If this was a Republican leaning group doing it, you'd all be claiming we were stealing yet another election.

Whoa... aren't you the guy who opposes government handouts, unless you're about to lose your trust fund?

Talk about hypocrisy.

What on earth does voter fraud have to do with the bailout? You're really grasping at straws. It's kind of sad.

Earlier in this thread, you were bitching about wealth redistribution.

Apparently the only people who don't need to take responsibility for their financial well-being are the people who are already rich.

And until you can explain this discrepancy, I won't stop bringing it up.

P.S. Dumbass rapist.

Wow. Character attacks? You're really pathetic. Does it turn you on to beat up on someone on an online forum? What a sad individual you are. I really expected you'd have a bit more class than BRTD. Oh well.

In response to your question, the bailout was essential unless you wanted our economy to come to a complete halt, in which everyone, not just the wealthy, would be hit hard. Small businesses wouldn't function, much less any other large corporation. Of course, I'm sure you'd want this country to collapse just so your guy will cruise to victory.

But keep it up, Ebowed. Let's see if you can give BRTD a run for head of the trolls! Keep the person attacks coming! It really shows you have an argument.

the birth of modern america & onward election Former Vice President Blanche Bruce defeats incumbent President Grover Cleveland in 1904. In an age of unpredictable election outcomes Bruce finds himself reelected in 1908 against an opponent whose name escapes me at the moment. Blanche Bruce served as Vice President under Frederick Douglas whom Cleveland defeated in 1900. His Vice President runs to replace Bruce in 1912.

What's wrong with Venezuelan oil?

Well, America only accepts oil from liberal democracies.
Pretty much. Being friends with authoritarian, human rights-abusing governments is fine. BUT IF THEY DON'T TREAT THEIR WORKING CLASS CITIZENS LIKE CRAP, then they're of no use to America.

everyone here is partisan and thinks their candidate won.

prescient.  But the "who won?" polls are still fun.  Don't you think?

And we get some good soundbites from these debates, such as when Obama said, "Nothing is more important than us no longer borrowing seven hundred billion dollars from China and sending it to Saudi Arabia."  That was a pretty good summation, imho.

And, "I'd like to thank Hoffa."  That was one of the first utterances of McCain tonight, and it was precious.  Hoffa?  Why would McCain want to thank Hoffa?!  Isn't he living on that deserted tropical island with Elvis? 

But, yeah, no one really wins or loses these debates.  Folks know who they like going in.  The conversation just gives the Sean Hannities and the Keith Olbermans of the world more hot air to blow.

Character attacks?

Sorry, I just have some moral qualms with rape.  Shouldn't let that get the better of me, eh?

In response to your question, the bailout was essential unless you wanted our economy to come to a complete halt, in which everyone, not just the wealthy, would be hit hard. Small businesses wouldn't function, much less any other large corporation. Of course, I'm sure you'd want this country to collapse just so your guy will cruise to victory.

Actually, I'm on record as supporting the bailout.  Try again.

It's pretty funny how every time McCain mentions "Joe" the CNN thing goes way up for men and way down for women....maybe he should talk about "Jane the Homemaker" to promote equality.

John McCain's health care "plan" is possibly the best reason to vote against his joke candidacy.
