Obama Moves Up In The Polls, While McCain Ponders What To Do With Palin

The voters have finally turned their attention to the candidate. The Ole Miss Debate at Oxford, Missisippi  was a chance to see Obama and McCain, side by side in a debate setting. It probably did little for those voters who already made up their mind, but it gave the uncommitted voters a chance to see the differences between Obama and McCain.

Obama, clearly benefited from this more scruitinized  look by the voters. Now a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll gives Obama an edge in the debate and an edge in the weekly opinion poll by 8 percentage points. The stakes are rising in the presidential election and the candidate face more intense scrutinity from voters in the remining debates.  With Sarah Palin, facing intense scrutinity from conservatives who want her off the ticket, McCain will have some serious issues to deal with this week.

Palin’s popularity has dropped considerable over the weeks since her selection by John Mccain as his Vice-Presidential running mate. Since that time because of a series of interviews, Palin has proven to be  unknowledgeable and has looked terrible.

This is a crucial week for John McCain, who faces tough decisions on whether  he keep Palin or cave into conservative Republicans and move her off the ticket.  Look for the rhetoric in this area to increase this week and in the weeks to come.

Whats your Opinion On the McCain Obama Debates- Who Won?

Your honest Opinion. Who do you think won the debate? Did Obama have a grasp of the economy and foreign affairs? What was behind McCain’s seemingly inability to look Obama in the eyes? Did McCain have a better Grasp of the economy? Opinion polls say Obama won, but what do you think. Weigh in here.

McCain Made A Questionable Erratic Decision In Canceling Debate Appearance

Is John McCain the dysfunctional candidate? A couple of weeks ago he said the “Fundamentals of the Economy are strong”. Now his running mate, Sarah Palin, said today that the United States may be headed for a “Depression”. McCain’s campaign is in a word bizarre. Today he announced that he wanted to suspend his campaign and and cancel Friday Debate. At no time in history, has this ever happened.

Americans we need to question, John McCain’s equilibrium. Is he balanced enough to lead this country? Is his thinking rational? The answer is a resounding NO!. McCain has a motive; and as we have learned, he is a big fan of the shock move! Remember Sarah Palin? You know do something shocking that no one expects to take the spotlight away from Obama. It typical McCain. He calls himself a Maverick; but he has always been erratic and reckless throughout his life.

He finished in the botton 5% of his class at the Naval Academy. McCain admits this himself. He tried to live up to high expectations from his military family, but seemed to struggle with discipline, even when he studied to be a Naval Pilot. He would not read the pilot books on how to fly and operate a plane and he crashed at least two planes, not saying they were related to his reluctance to study, but one has to wonder about his hot head erratic behavior and where he could lead this country.

Do we really want McCain anywhere near a nuclear button at 3 AM in the morning? He would certainly push the button with out consulting anyone; perhaps only because he decided that is what he would do. McCain is erratic and perhaps more than a little unpredictable. A this point in time those qualities are not what we need in a leader of the most influential nation in the free world.

Obama Urges To Stop Greed and Irresponsibility- Urge Your Congressional Representatives and Senators To Vote No

Friend —

The era of greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street and in Washington has created a financial crisis as profound as any we have faced since the Great Depression.

Congress and the President are debating a bailout of our financial institutions with a price tag of $700 billion or more in taxpayer dollars. We cannot underestimate our responsibility in taking such an enormous step.

Whatever shape our recovery plan takes, it must be guided by core principles of fairness, balance, and responsibility to one another.

Please sign on to show your support for an economic recovery plan based on the following:

• No Golden Parachutes — Taxpayer dollars should not be used to reward the irresponsible Wall Street executives who helmed this disaster.

• Main Street, Not Just Wall Street — Any bailout plan must include a payback strategy for taxpayers who are footing the bill and aid to innocent homeowners who are facing foreclosure.

• Bipartisan Oversight — The staggering amount of taxpayer money involved demands a bipartisan board to ensure accountability and oversight.
Show your support and encourage your friends and family to join you:

http://my.barackobama.com/ourplan

The failed economic policies and the same corrupt culture that led us into this mess will not help get us out of it. We need to get to work immediately on reforming the broken government — and the broken politics — that allowed this crisis to happen in the first place.

And we have to understand that a recovery package is just the beginning. We have a plan that will guarantee our long-term prosperity — including tax cuts for 95 percent of families, an economic stimulus package that creates millions of new jobs and leads us towards energy independence, and health care that is affordable to every American.

It won’t be easy. The kind of change we’re looking for never is.

But if we work together and stand by these principles, we can get through this crisis and emerge a stronger nation.

Thank you,

Barack

Obama’s Consistent Message On The Economy Pays Off

The tide appears to be changing for Barack Obama. Throughout the primary campaign he has focused on key issues and specific campaign standards that have proved to be key that have placed him in a position to capitalize on possible game changing occurrences.

Obama has hammered home his stance on domestic issues from the start, even though domestic issues were not always the primary issues concerning voters. The primary issue of the month often changed concerning voters. Ranging from the war in Iraq, lipstick on a pig, the number of homes McCain has, to Sarah Palin and the first dude, Todd Palin.

But lurching behind the scene, ever presence was Obama’s view on the economy. Something that was not on the minds of many Americans. But last week out of no where with the onset of the bail out crises, Obama constant theme of tax cuts for 95% of Americans suddenly was thrust front and center.

Now Americans are taking notice to his constant message, because of fustration with the way Republicans have handled the bailout crises. Americans are looking for change and because of Obama’s consistent message he is seen as the candidate best able to handle the American economy.

Clinton Offers “Luke Warm” Support for Obama on David Letterman

Bill Clinton cannot bring himself to whole heartedly support Barack Obama. He danced around the question of would he support Obama on the David Letterman show. It appears his heart is not in the idea of supporting Obama. Although Clinton says he will campaign for Obama; given his lukewarm support, one wonders if Clinton would do Obama more harm than good.

It is obvious the Clintons have a huge grudge against Obama and it appears nothing will change that is the near future. Clinton plans to head out on the campaign trail for Obama, so we will see exactly what message he will leave with the potential voters that he will meet.
