It's hard to think of the Obama campaign trying to use McCain's homes against him as anything but negative. You can't say that didn't happen. I didn't see the dems complaining about Kerry's wealth when he was running.

Semantics. Misinterpretation. It happens. So, now can we simply resume the responses to the OP's sincere thread?

You might want to read about his statements and videos he made for the enemy.

A lot of people served their country; a lot still do.
He's voted against them time and again.
Democrats don't need to run nasty campaigns, they got the media to do that FOR them.

Even in defeet he had nothing but great things to say about his opponent, and respectfully so. It shows miles about his characture. Obama's exceptance speach lacked the respect and didn't even compare to what Mccain had to say. It really reflects what lack of values American people have anymore that the average radar does not register this.

I hope all you who voted for Obama can fully experience what you voted for in office. In fact I hope the consequences completely consume all who voted for him and spare the ones who knew better.

All in all, may God bless our new president and we can only hope he makes wise descisions.

Before you get comments abt McCain's negative ads people need to realize that McCain attacked his POLICIES and PLANS, not Obama himself. Sure, he said he was inexperienced, but he never commented on his intelligence, his race, his gender, his clothing, his religion, etc.

He DID comment on the people he chooses to surround himself by, but usually the crowd you hang out with often gives an example of how you are. It's basic sociology. You can't blame people for raising questions.

Perhaps the speech wasn't broadcast in the language you speak. One of the first things Obama said was how much he respected John McCain and the crowed cheered. He even surprised me when he mentioned Palin (who had attacked his character, said he didn't love America, etc.) and said he would be looking to both of them for support in the coming years to heal the country.

the difference in the the gratitude of both candidates in both speeches ( you obviously did not watch both) were paramount

as far as both candidates attacking each other nancy, put your big girl pantys on and understand a word called mudslinging that has been apart of amercian elections since the beginning.

I think that underneath it all, he has always been a fairly decent guy.

I've ripped on some of his dalliances and foibles in the Navy, but, being ex military myself, I know how things are.

My biggest regret is that he let the rabid right saddle him.

What a HUGE mistake.

I didn't wait for Obama's speech. I turned off the TV because I didn't want to hear any of his BS anymore. I want action.

I want action from him as a senator for the rest of the year. I can only listen to enough BS.
