I rather have a President such as Obama who will consider every aspects and outcomes of a situation by putting the country first, than McCain who will say and do anything just to get a vote and then 3 hours later has to go back and do a flip-flop to change his told untruths.

With McLies/PaLies blinking before thinking is just putting self before the best interest of the country. These two will do whatever it takes to win at all cost even if it means putting country last. Such wreckless behavior could keep us in war much much longer than a 100 years and keep things in a mess, depression, etc. I can see why so many people are saying that these 2 are "scary." If they win, OMG things will get even worst!

NO WAY --- NO HOW --- NO McCAIN/PALIN!

With Obama thinking before blinking is just putting the country first, because he truly does care about ALL the people. He knows that the results of a decision and how it would effect ALL the people is more important than political points.

Obama/Biden 08 - because they understand and they get it!


Who shows better leadership and judgement: Obama who thinks before he blinks, or McCain who blinks before he thinks?

Funny when a person tries to consider all aspects of a situation, he is criticized for too much 'nuance' his answer.

Pushing old 'patriotic' buzz words and continually mentioning your POW experience as part of an answer to any question is, on the other hand, considered rational by weak members of the public.

No wonder we had 8 years of Bush. People have forgotten how to think.

I would think Palin who thinks on her feet. That is a necessary part of being a mother.

Great way to put it!

Obama, who thinks before he blinks.

Trouble is, Americans are motivated by buzzwords and images, as Goldengrain sez.

We're not voting for a mother. We're voting for a President and Vice President. And, preferably, someone who doesn't lie and hasn't been repeatedly involved in scandal.

Default McCain is up to more political illusions!

McLies is trying to fool the American people again! McCain is trying to get out of the debate because he is not ready for the American voters to know that he is not a leader.

What type of leader is McCain if he can only handle one thing at a time?

Although McCain can't think, he should at least try to focus.

Do the debate ALREADY McCAIN - American people have a right to the truth and to see that you are only 4 more years of Bush.


President Obama for '08 the real leader!

Obama is a marrionette manipulated by the far left. He cannot put two words together without a tele-prompter and has never had a genuine thought in his life as demonstrated by his lack of any initiatives since becoming a Senator. He is surrounded by thieves and charlatans who collectively have more skeletons in their closet than Arlington National Cemetary. He is of the Daley Chicago strong arm Democrats who have stolen elections since the 30's. An admitted product of Affirmative Action for his college acceptance he is wholly unqualified to run this country. Far less qualified than even the Republican Vice Presidential candidate. No one is going to tell you George Bush has been a great President, though to toss the Presidency to a neophite leftist is a bit extreme. If you think we have problems now go ahead and elect Obama.

She surely thought on her feet in that Katie Couric interview.

I'll say this - the lady has some courage to sit there and defend that whole I-can-see-Russia-from-my-house-so-I-have-foreign-policy-experience thing. I can admire that. Not enough to vote you into the White House, though.
