Yup, I just heard this piece of TRUTH, from McCain, and I gotta say. . . Thanks, John, for answering your own question as to "who is Barak Obama". . . . you got it right this time! I do have to wonder, however if you will say anything at all that you think is likely to help you get elected, without any boundaries of truth, fairness, or anything else that would make one think that you have any "moral charachter" to stand on. . . . seems to me that what you say is based not on belief, truth or even ideology, but on something a whole lot less respectable!

"I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don't have to be scared of as president of the United States," McCain said as the crowd booed and shouted "Come on, John!"

Wow booed by his own crowd... at least there won't be much of a wait at the polls.

I think the dressings down he has received in the press as well as from some high profile Americans have given him pause.

He can't seem to do anything right- it's a shame. He's had a long career serving his country. It's too bad it is ending like this.

He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't nowadays. When he started with all the "who is Barack Obama" stuff, he energized his base (who's vote he already had), but didn't help himself with independents. Now he's saying that Obama is a decent guy, and he's pissing off the base, while still daying nothing that will help sway independents his way. I'm seriously beginning to think his heart's not in the race any more.

I just watched that on MSNBC. I have to say I admire him for saying it, because I think he realized by crowd reaction that the campaign is whipping these people into a frenzy and it probably does not sit well with him. I'd even say it probably haunts him. It was a glimmer of the old McCain I used to respect very much.

Having said that, Palin will still continue to whip them into a frenzy and McCain will sanction it as she's doing that work for him.

And I don't want McCain as my president.

It was just a case of John McCain's super-ego fighting his id. For a brief moment is super-ego won out.
