Yes, and they should be at their jobs, not talking to the country about domestic and international affairs, which they know nothing about.

And yet, somehow you are qualified to post about the same stuff (anonymously) on a forum. Imagine that.

One thing you Obama people will never understand. EVERYONE in this country gets a voice. EVERYONE. And if it doesn't agree with your voice, then that's just too damn bad.

Pretty sad state of our politics when one party brings out these publicity gimmicks to make their case. Can't the McCain camp provide arguments of substance.

Exactly. On an anonymous forum. Not on a national news outlet. You can't see the difference?

Excellent point, and I agree 100%!

Again, you're the one who isn't getting it.

There is no difference.

Everyone is allowed to speak their mind in this country.
Everyone, whether you agree with the speaker, the forum, or anything else about it.

Your master has trained you very well.

I know you need to believe that everyone voting for Obama is in love with Obama. It's not the case. But I understand why you need to believe that; it allows you to disregard reasonable arguments.

And if you can't see the difference between speaking on a national news outlet and an anonymous forum, I can see why you are voting for McCain/Palin.

I've made hundreds of thousands of dollars working in the media. I've forgotten more about it than you will ever know, but then again I haven't forgotten much.

Who I am voting for is simply none of your business. It's not what this thread is about.

This thread is about the fact that the airwaves belong to everyone who wishes to use them. If you don't like the message, find another media outlet. There are many.

Not everyone in this life is going to agree with you. You'll start to see that when you get out into the world.

I love when Tito talks about the Obama campaign taking tips from the Chavez playbook. But in all seriousness, I just can't believe that a U.S. presidential campaign has come down to Joe the Plumber, Tito the Builder, and their interviews with major news organizations on behalf of the campaign.
The points these men represent are valid.

*L* For someone who worked in media, you sure have very little understanding of how media works. Not just anyone can walk into Fox news and get interviewed. McCain/Palin picked Tito and Joe to represent them and their campaign on a national news outlet. For that reason, what Tito and Joe say means more and reaches a larger audience than any post on this forum.

You are conflating what is being discussed on this thread with a free speech issue. No one said that Tito doesn't have a right to say what he is saying. The point is that if McCain/Palin can't find anyone more qualified to talk to journalists about Obama and the McCain/Palin platform, then that campaign is in serious trouble.

How much prepping did Palin need to face journalists and get up-to-date on policy issues? And yet, Tito and Joe are ready from the get-go to face journalists and represent the McCain camp not only to the nation but to the world?

Surely there are Republicans better suited to the task. And if not, you should think twice about whom you defend.
