    Poor Biden thought he was going to get softball questions about the Phillies and the last debate.

    If they win they'll be controlling the media like the communists.

    After the Fairness Doctrine, narrowly targeted at talk radio and the internet (yep. betcha didn't know that internet bit was circulating in Congress!), comes FCC license revocations for any others who "step out of line". That and the IRS auditing and/or investigating sponsors...how many, one or two, would it take before it scared all business off from sponsoring anything that might tick off Big Brother?

    It won't be long until we'll be told how many children we can have, what books we can read, can only watch government controlled tv stations.. ie MSNBC or CNN and go in for gps implants

    if they lied about what they were going to ask him, then i can see where "ambush" is appropriate, but he sure didn't handle it very well.

    and in the end, they're quick to "hush" people up if they don't play their way.

    isn't that trying to stop "freedom of speech"? i don't want anyone to answer that but think about it in a generic sense, not a defensive or offensive one.

    I haven't found anything yet to dispute this claim. If it's true Biden's just given a serious black eye to a what looked like a slamdunk end to the Dem Prez campaign from where I sit.

    The only problem is - I've seen a whole lotta Rightwing claims blown right outta the water under the light of closer scrutiny.

    But I WILL be following this story closely over the next few days... thanks for the heads-up.

    It gets worse if you start adding them up:

    Two requests to the Justice Dept to file criminal charges against the guy who ran the "Obama and Ayers" ad. A request to the Justice Dept to pursue civil rights action against any who speak ill of ACORN. And the organization of a legal "posse" in MO to pursue criminal charges against anybody running an ad the Obama campaign found to be misleading. This last one they backed off of, and started "restating their position" especially after the governer slammed them for engaging in "police state tactics" as he put it. Now just think...if Bush had been so inclined...how many Autzwitz's would we have had to build to house all the "BUSH LIED PEOPLE DIED!" crowd? And I'd suspect you'd probably be among them. And as much as I disagree with you politically on many issues, I find that prospect chilling to the core. You may go today while "my guy" is in office. What if "your guy" wins tomorrow?

    Apparently this story broke 10/15/2008 and was such a political "hot button" that other pol's make virtually no mention of it. Which leads me to believe it's not a singularly uncommon practice among politicians to throw work the way of their family members. And apparently not a legal issue provided the family members are paid for actual work done.

    Joe's sis has apparently been working on his campaigns for about three decades... or longer.



    Still, Biden admits he’ll need a mistake-free campaign to stand a shot. Much of that onus will fall on his sister, Valerie Biden Owens, who has managed each of Joe’s campaigns since he ran for president of his eighth-grade class. The strategy so far, according to Biden Owens, has been to test the waters in so-called red states such as Kentucky and South Carolina, to see if his message of diplomacy rings clear. So far, she says, “We are overwhelmingly satisfied with the response we’ve had.”

    Joe's son, R. Hunter Biden, is a bit more problematic... paid by (name corporate concern here - Big Pharm, credit card industry, etc.) to lobby... err... his dad, Joe Biden?


    Joe McCain recently resigned from brother John's campaign subsequent to a heated 911 call... I can't find any reference to what Joe drew - but it would hafta be less than Palin's makeup artist (no relation to the candidate).

    It won't affect my vote - I cast that ballot over the weekend (not that it'll do Obama/Biden a bit of good - I live in Texas, the crimson-est of red states).

    I thought I was watching Fox News, seriously.

    They ask Biden if Obama is a Socialist for wanting to "spread the wealth"???

    How bout then asking if McCain is a socialist for voting against the Bush tax cuts and said they benefited the wealthy too much.

    McCain believed from 2000-2006 that the Bush tax cuts favored the wealthy and he wanted the tax rates to stay the same as under Clinton, and Obama is now saying he wants to revert tax rates back to Clinton, then how is Obama a Socialist and McCain is not?

    They both have the exact same position on taxes from 2000-2006, but Obama is called a Socialist for this view and McCain is not???

    Now some may say that McCain changed his mind due to bad economic conditions, but the economy was pretty dam good back in 2006 compared to today.

    Even if that was the case, McCain is not saying he supports the tax cuts for economic purposes, he is saying that he supports the tax cuts BASED ON IDEOLOGY...........that increasing tax rates is Socialism.

    But he supported this view from 2000-2006, only when he started running for President (in 2006 of course) did he change his position.

    Thus his ideology on taxes from 2000-2006 is totally different from his ideology on taxes from 2006-2008......His Presidential campaign started in 2006......coincidence maybe???

    So his ideology changed when he decided to run for President if you take statements made by McCain from 2000-2008 as being truthful. Could the fact that he wanted to win the Republican primary and thus, he had to be in favor of the tax cuts in order to get votes from the base have anything to do with this change in IDEOLOGY...............I think it did, personally.
