Because Obama voted in favor of it.

McCain voted against it.

McCain is all for big business.

Where you put your money, you reward. Why should I be sponsoring the guys who are taking our jobs away? Why do we still subsidize big oil?
Obama's plan gives lower taxes to the middle class.
It is obvious that the Republicans care nothing for the middle class but to bilk them and only seem to care at election time, during which if they wag the flag enough and spout patriotic war stories it will wipe away the lowering living standard and the sub par education in schools and the tanking economy and the never ending war.

To quote Hillary -

No more.
No way.
No McCain!

OH YEAH, Obama is not for business, NO, he's for the common man.

Resume:

Following high school, Obama moved to Los Angeles, where he studied at Occidental College for two years.[9] He then transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science with a specialization in international relations.[10] Obama graduated with a B.A. from Columbia in 1983, then worked for a year at the

*******Business International Corporation
[11] ***********

and then at the New York Public Interest Research Group.[12][13]


Business International Corporation (BI) was a publishing and advisory firm dedicated to assisting American companies in operating abroad. In 1986, Business International was acquired by The Economist Group in London, and eventually merged with The Economist Intelligence Unit.


FACT versus SPEECHES.

Can someone please explain the thinking of such supporters of this McCain, because logically, it just doesn't make sense.

I'm in total agreement with you. I's mindboggling.. and republicans are in such denial about how horribly their party has run this country in the past 8 years!

I like THIS quote:

In the roughly three years since she quit as the state's chief regulator of the oil industry, Palin has crushed the Republican hierarchy (virtually all male) and nearly every other foe or critic. Political analysts in Alaska refer to the "body count" of Palin's rivals. "The landscape is littered with the bodies of those who crossed Sarah," says pollster Dave Dittman, who worked for her gubernatorial campaign. It includes Ruedrich, Renkes, Murkowski, gubernatorial contenders John Binkley and Andrew Halcro, the three big oil companies in Alaska, and a section of the
Daily News called "Voice of the Times," which was highly critical of Palin and is now defunct.

Beyond what the history of the Civil War teaches me about the Democratic Party, the decline in morals and international status during the 1960s, will cause me to readily vote GOP.

Oops! An unlucky selection of wording. The Party appears to have always been morally-deficient.

Default McCain's high morals

Just a few reasons I don't like McCain:

McCain is pro-choice for his own daughter - yes, he did say this
McCain lies in ads against Obama
McCain favors reinstating the draft - yes, he did say this
McCain relies on the economic advice of Phil Gramm, who is responsible for much of our economic downfall
McCain will get us into more unnecessary war

Where are his high morals and standards when they are needed most?
