There's a difference between a typo and not being able to spell, space and punctuate correctly. The former is a slip of the fingers, the latter shows a lack of knowledge/education.
I thought you had nothing left to say?


Was your entire OP a typo?

Weird. You had a bunch of stuff to say before.

Excellent point. Rep points for you. With all the talk about the economy, the candidates should have turned those millions over to help wherever possible. I know--it would never happen. But it's nice to hope.

Maybe if we would all start to concentrate on the real issues instead of being dazzled with the smoking mirrors, we could really see hope for change.

It's just a reality - Obama bought this election with apparently ill-gotten contributions. When you purposely disable AVS and other safeguards on your donation website to encourage illegal donations, there can be no doubt that is just what they were hoping for.

With all those donations, he is then able to fund his massive advertising and ground game.

Of course, his willing accomplices in the media did their part and turned a blind eye.

Isn't it about time for you to stop lying. Nobody is buying it..

Obama outsmarted the Republican machine. Repubs always made Dems play by their rules but Obama changed the game and crushed them!

So keep hating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Somehow your analysis is not believable. Look your all your previous analysis.

A good read - especially for the Bots, who will need to understand why The One lost. This will help them to prepare.

McCain could very well win PA. That whole region, including parts of VA, IN, OH, MO, PA are going to come out for McCain/Palin. Go back and look at the primaries in these states, county by county - Obama lost in a landslide against Hillary.

Why is Obama going to Iowa this weekend? And Palin? Based on the polls, it should be a lock for Obama - it isn't. Both of their internal polls tell a different story - that's why they pay these private pollsters, who have a great deal of respect and credbility within that community, hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.

The media is trying to sell you a story - don't read it.

Three weeks ago, an AP-GfK survey found that Obama had surged to a seven-point lead over McCain, lifted by voters who thought the Democrat was better suited to lead the nation through its sudden economic crisis.

Striking - six points in a week.

I can practically guarantee you - it will change.

McCain can give him CO, NM, IA, VA while picking off MI &NH - McCain wins.

The kook-left and the blacks adore obama, as well as the media.

Thankfully, they are not enough to elect him.

If he loses either MI or PA, it will likely be over for him. Those are blue states. If McCain wins either picks off either MI or PA, he likely wins.

This scenario gives Obama CO,NM,IA,VA. McCain picks off PA. Everything else remains the same color as 2004.

And this scenario, I'd rather not see. McCain picks off MI instead of PA and we have tie. A VERY likely scenario. If he can pick up NH&MI, McCain wins.
