As The public digest the ABC Palin interview, the media and political strategist are already bringing to light things that contradict their message or reform. Til this day McCain blatenly lies and say Palin didnt get earmarks in Alaska when records show she did. Some of the earmarks Palin tried to get when she was mayor, McCain tried to fight. Palin is constantly contradicting her running mates view especially when it come to enter a country without their permission. She sounded unprofessional the way she spoke and you could tell her lack of experience based on the answers she gave. MSNBC tore her a part and basically said she is not ready. An undecided on MSNBC who is more conservative said after that interview there is no way she can vote for McCain. She didnt say she was voting for Obama but she not supporting McCain. I think these interviews are going to hurt McCain pretty badly, especially is they get looped and looped in the media.

I feel like McCain/Palin started sending the "change" "reform" message after they saw that it was working for Obama. I'm not fooled.

Good for you. Plenty of others not fooled either and these people are not reflected in polls obviously.

Plenty of anti-Obama folks here are completely fooled though. Shame.

90% of the time there are no records of reform with McCain. Based on Sarah Palin's answers in regards to foriegn policy, its more of the same. But this in not an ordinary year. The polls are off big time because they dont take in account the HUGE SURGE of Obama supporters and new registered democrats that will be voting in November. Remember this is still a democratic year.

Really...that McCain/Palin ad where they are presented as "mavericks" makes me laugh! I thought it was a satire at first...a parody of some crime-busting duo film due to come out. Really! At the end of the ad I figured out it was a legit one...which also made me laugh.

By all indications this should be a democratic year but as I'm sure you've seen Obama and McCain have been statistically tied for weeks now. And some polls now show a distinct possibility of the 2006 democratic wins in the House and Senate being reversed. Congress, the democratic Congress, has a lower approval rating than Bush. So really it's a toss up across the board at this point. But were I running the Obama campaign I'd be very worried that Obama hasn't been able to move at least some Independents to his column.

You obviously didnt read my last statement. THE POLLS ARE OFF BIG TIME BECAUSE THEY DONT TAKE ACCOUNT OF MILLIONS OF NEW REGISTERED OBAMA VOTERS AND THE SURGE OF OBAMA SUPPORTERS.
