Seems like it has been going on forever! I just came across this interesting ad on You Tube and wondered if anyone else has seen it:


Talk about a puzzle! If I am a small business owner, am I considered "rich" at 250K (Obama) or 150K (Biden)? And do we really want to piece together the Jimmy Carter puzzle again (gas lines, weak foreign policy, 21% interest rates, 15% mortgages, etc.). Personally, Obama may look good on the outside, but when you look beyond the puzzle, it's scarier than a demon on Halloween.

Anyway, was curious to know others' thoughts.

Isn't it a little late to be campaigning?

I think its closer than the Obama camp likes to admit which is why the liberal media is calling it a landslide with the intention of making the reps think their vote doesnt matter and hoping they dont get out and vote on tuesday.

My state (pa) is looking to be somewhat of a major factor so i'll def be out giving my support for mccain netxt week.

I simply no longer care about the presidential race. I'm focusing on electing my Congressional candidate.

Quite the opposite, actually. People who fervently want Obama to win want everyone to believe the race is anyone's game, lest the little undergrads decide it's in the bag and stay home to smoke a bowl or something instead of going to the polls. Personally, I want to see an LBJ v. Goldwater or Reagan v. Mondale-style landslide, but with voter turnout at Western European levels.

I was dissappointed to see only 1 District attorney running (Dem) and only one party (Dem) running for all the county commissioner seats.

At least I got to vote for my favorite Labor Commissioner (they inspect the elevators in this state, and safe elevators are something we can all get behind
).

Mickey Mouse? I seem to recall something about his voter registration form being fraudulent. Definitely not the kind of man I'd want running the country.

How do I feel? Insulted by Fox and CNN who relentlessly spin everything to their respective parties and then claim to be the most fair, the most non partisan, and the most balanced news source.

In Tennessee, you cannot write-in a candidate (Mickey Mouse). It goes in the trash - like you never even voted...

thus I will be voting for Chuck Baldwin.
