Why bother voting if this election is already decided? I'm sure President Dewey would have agreed with me on this one.

and his running mate is one of the worst in history..

Roll Eyes Please.

McCain allowed fools to run his campaign.
Palin was a drag on the ticket because if the MSM is talking( as in bad press) about your VP pick 24hrs before the election then its not a good sign.
 He showed weakness during a time of cirsis.


Not really, he was pretty much doomed from September 15th onward.

According to McCain the economy was strong, until the Dow Jones hit -800 2 hrs later and wallstreet proceded to meltdown.

But the #1 rule in picking a VP is DO NO HARM!!



The fundamentals of the economy were and are still very strong.

Your the only republican who still makes that point.

Iam sure McCain feels the same way you do.

First off, I'm not a Republican and secondly, when you see massive inflation, bread lines, thousands upon thousands of homeless and a greater then 15% unemployment rate, then you can claim that the fundamentals of the economy are NOT strong. We're doing tons better then a lot of other countries would do faced with this situation.

Not only was McCain's campaign poorly run, but it suffered from the economic crash, an already anti-GOP enviroment, a perfectly run campaign by his opponent, and hurricane Palin, who in the end hurt Obama more than she helped.

The polls have proven that Palin didn't really hurt McCain, she actually helped him gain a few points.
