    But Hussein is going to win this election. By a lot. McCain has dug his own grave over the last few weeks.

    Coupled with the sheer idiocy and lemming nature of the American voting public, and socialism here we come. I honestly cannot believe that Americans are going to vote for Obama just to spite conservatives because they lack the inteligence to realize what he will do to this country.

    Shouldn't come as a surprise. Even the people on this board, at least the ones supporting Obama, don't even know how the legislative process works. I spent most of the day explaining that to some of them but they just post :rolleyes: & :lmao2: and such.

    Their capacity to grasp reality is amazing but not shocking.

    Though at the end of the day, I still think the American people will do the right thing for America and elect McCain.

    Don't put too much stock in the polling you see until about a week before the election then only pay attention to the ones using likely voters.

    One way to tell if McCain is losing on his internals will be if he changes his tact in the final 10 days. If he stays steady, he is going to win. If he changes he is toast.

    If the american people were smart they would have never voted W as the republican nominee years ago and we would not have went through 8 years of him on the premise that he is an average guy you could have a beer with.

    So I am with you when talking about the lemming nature and idiocy of the american voting public.

    However with all of that said.

    This race is far from over right now.

    For a guy as condescending as the OP who calls everyone else stupid that doesn't believe as he does, it is odd that he is too stupid to realize this.

    Murano is, quite frankly, a joke. She is nowhere near qualified and in way over her head. She got the positon because of her race (and no one has tried to hide this fact) and nothing more.

    From students all the way to alumni, no one particuarly likes her. Of course, Robert Gates was such a badarse that maybe we are all just spoiled.

    It depends. If the financial situation keeps hanging around, I think the election continues on its current trajectory. If that falls off the map, I think the lead will shrink and it'll be dead even again.

    Plus, if someone falls on their face in a debate, it's possible that could swing a few people.

    McCain will still be the caucasion guy on November 4th.;)

    See it when I believe it. Nobody wants to admit it, but race will play a huge factor.

    I am afraid that is not the case. They just said on one of the networks that the only candidate that has come from as far back in the polls as McCain is currently, with only 1 month from election day was Ronald Reagan in 1980 against Jimmy Carter.

    The difference was the debates, Reagan mopped the floor with Carter and surged past him in the polls and won the election.

    Considering only 1 presidential candidate in history has come back from being down as far as McCain is right now kinda kills your argument that the polls dont matter right now.

    They kinda do.

    One thing trumps race, the almighty dollar.

    Considering the 605,000 jobs have been lost this year, as of Aug 31st, it would be a miracle for the incumbent party to win.

    Has an incumbent party even won a presidential election during a recession? I dont think so, at least not in recent times.

    It will take a miracle for McCain to win in this economic atmosphere.

    You type "Hussein" like it's supposed to offend people.

    Interesting.

    Somebody with the guts to actually admit this will be a huge factor.

    At the time, he was the best of a bad bunch (which seems to be happening for much of my adult life, save Ronny).

    And Bush is an average guy you can sit down with and have a beer. No premise there. But hey, I know a lot of average guys that I can sit down with and have a beer.

    Like Bush, they love this counrty and try to do the right thing. But again, like Bush, somehow that doesn't always work out.

    But with politics the way it is these days, I'm not sure the best person for the job would want anything to do with being President.

    I don't know who will win but I do think this will be a very close election.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm not voting for the guy. But, I don't believe he's Muslim or a Terrorist because of a middle name.

    “In the absence of true leadership, people will follow any voice. In fact they’ll wander through the desert to a mirage and drink the sand. They don’t drink the sand because they are thirsty; they drink the sand because they don’t know the difference.”


    All too often I see this more and more. I don't know if it's fear, if it's a lack of understanding, if it's media bombardment or it's just the fact that people are too damned lazy to redefine what our leaders should be about because the job would take serious efforts. Whatever the case, it's happening more and more. We Americans are the Romans of our day. Great Nations, like Rome, are not conquered by enemies outside there own walls. The fall of a great nation, comes from within. I seriously fear that we are witnessing this up close and personal.

    Just like people like to say CHANGE.

    You know and everyone here who is honest damn well knows what he meant when he typed that.

    Here's what I say...

    FEAR!

    :rolleyes:

    There's nothing like someone starting a thread and calling people stupid right off the bat.

    It's so lovely and sparks honest debate from everyone.

    I used to work with this girl in the early 80's and she was a died-in-the-wool yellow-dog democrat...

    She knew I voted for Reagan and she promised me he would start the end of the world with WWIII. I asked her how she knew that for sure and this was one of her reasons.

    Take the Name "Ronald Wilson Reagan". The letters can be rearranged to say "Insane Anglo Warlord". This, of course, tickled me... but she was serious and said it was no coincidence and got very angry that I would laugh at that...

    Yes, it will. The last several elections have been very close, so there is no reason to think this one will be different.
