Addiction is a serious issue and thank god Cindy McCain is past it, but if we were talking about Michelle Obama, this would have been front and center on the news complete with round table discussions and public opinion polls.

{yawn} this old chestnut again?

OK, here's one with more relevance ---- Obama blew through $100 Million dollars on untested, unproven social programs when he was suppossed to help failing chicago inner city public schools. The program was deemed an utter and complete failure. Now, why should we give obama access to trillions of dollars?

The $100 million didn't benefit anyone actually living in the inner cities, so that is a moot point.
As is the Iraq war debt.....I didn't vote for it, but plenty of of democrats did At anyrate, W is a fool and I will be glad when he gone.
I know that their ideologies are completely different, but I wish that obama would consult ron paul on some economic policy....paul is one of the few actual fiscal conservatives left in DC.

Oh phew. Only drug addiction and embezzlement. As long as she didn't write an intelligent honors thesis for an Ivy League institution, she's a-ok by me!

Actually the moot point is trying to convince us that a young community organizer was solely responsible for 'blowing through' $100 Million.

That is factually incorrect.

EXACTLY.

That would have made Cindy McCain a Communist.

Intelligence=Bad.

Apparently Cindy McCain would be more knowledgable on that topic than either of the Obamas.
