Yeah, that's just what we need in a president. Someone who calls people up saying the other candidate is a terrorist. Yep, that's just what we need.

Alert! My aunt just called me and told me because of the misleading robo call she is voting for Obama. And since she knows someone at ACORN she will be voting eight times!

Yeah, these calls are effective alright, and McCain should know - he was on the receiving end of such calls in 2000.

I guess McCain learned a great deal from how Bush/Rove ran a campaign, and it says a LOT about his character and judgment when he chooses to use the same dishonest tactics, doesn't it?

Does anyone else find it ironic that McCain (who was the victim of such calling that claimed that he was the father of a bi-racial child) is using this tactic against his opponent with his permission? Doesn't it worry you that your candidate slammed the practice of robocalling when it was used against him but now uses it in his last ditch efforts to win the election?

You know what happened the last time the other candidate used this mess? We got George W. Bush the worst president in this country's history.

It would be a shame to have another qualified candidate smeared with innuendo and false claims.

But I guess it's only wrong when it's against McCain.

Anyone who is swayed by a robocall is an idiot two ways:

1. They actually listened to a robocall.
2. They let it make up their mind.

At this point in his life, McCain will do anything to get elected. I think the campaign will turn more nasty in the next few days.

I agree with you. I just hope that the American people see this for what it truly is.
