When they do something for our country, please let me know.

But you will hear Micheal use the I was a poor black girl growing up and met a poor 1/2 black 1/2 white man who fell in love crap tonight when the "I hate America Queen" speaks.
Who's this Michael person you keep referring to?

That was not a McCain fundraiser - that was for the Aggie Clayton Williams who was running for Texas governor against Ann. That must have been 20 years ago.

What about David Vitar, Larry Craig, Rudy Giuliani or Newt Gingrich?
Honestly, regardless of political parties; politicians will philander.

In the long run the real question is:

Why was this question asked of McCain? It has nothing to do with the issues.
Just as the number of houses Obama has OR how he got it isn't the issue. What is the issue is how will these men run our great nation.

Leave the spouses out of it. Leave their gaffes (Michelle) and their money (Cindy) out of it. Leave their half brothers and half sisters and parents out of it.

Yes, we are all products of our upbringing and how we lived our lives and who we associated with in our pasts. BUT, the real issue is who we are right now, at this moment and where we go from here.

I'm not making $4 mil + a year while my younger brother lives in a hut on a dollar a day. . . I've also seen my younger brother more than 2x an adult.

But there's Hope. Hope that Obama will treat us better than his own flesh and blood. Yes he can.
