Hmm, GW and Cheney weren't mentioned on this list and they are the clear terrorists! Seems to me though that McCain has been seen a time or two with these delightful tyrants.

Greetings .....Perhaps....However the consequences could be catastrophic should the closet be opened and all the skeletons are aired...Starting with Acorn,Freddie Mac and a cast of supporters that try to stay out of the sunlight...If the McCain campaighn would rid themselves of this cowardly,politically correct posture and start naming names they could win this election...

Hannity and Limbaugh are not news, the are entertainment commentators, FOX news is completely different then commentation. Learn the difference.

They're running a smear campaign against Barack Obama. They're trying to paint him as a terrorist with radicalist ties. This is nothing but propaganda made up by Rupord Murdoch to support the GOP.

If you're watching TV do not watch Fox News.

They are putting out the same kind of bs again and again.

Don't let fox brainwash you. Don't just watch fox news for fun. DO NOT WATCH IT AT ALL.


Get real. Look at all the cool aid "tingle up my leg" liberal news networks who mislead the American people every day About John McCain. Foxnews is telling the true life story about the anti-American, socialist, biggoted Barack Hussein Obama.

Of course, she was picked by design for this very purpose of remaining untouchable. She can "put on her heels and take off her gloves" all day long and remain fairly invulnerable.


I believe that the Obama campaign will address Palin once she says something worthy of being acknowledged. So far, that hasn't happened. I feel that Biden even acknowledging her presence at the debate was nothing more than a polite formality.

All of the corporate media outlets are biased, but FOX is by far the worst...

Oh come on. Have you ever watched MSNBC. They dont even try to disguise it. So if you think Fox is biased to you at least agree that MSNBC is biased?

He's not personally a terrorist but he DOES have radicallist ties. Barak Obama needs to be smeared. He is dangerous to the health of our nation.

You're making me WANT to watch Fox News! (Now all's I needs is a TV.) It would be great to see some news coverage that doesn't totally kiss Obama's ass.

No, more correctly it is those who take every word of theirs as "gospel" which need to learn the difference (and trust me, millions do!). I certainly know the difference, but like I said, this stuff is like "mother's milk" to those with weak minds. BTW, most of Fox is nothing more than commentation disguised as news.

Smear Campaign against Obama?? Hogwash!! THE TRUTH HURTS. Obama has a shady past and strong links to radical organizations. It is all on the public record. He is a SOCIALIST in sheep's clothing. All of the major news/media streams have been trashing all things republican and McCain since the primary elections. Additionally, you have the "political experts/actors" in Hollywood chiming in against McCain and Bush during awards shows and during their media junkets. Most of these whizzbangs have never achieved an education higher than a high school curriculum taught to them by a private tutor on a movie lot. Long gone are the days of mutual respect, modesty and civility. We have Hollywood, MTV and main stream media to thank for that. Fox News is the only outlet that truly represents both sides of the picture in this terribly skewed world that we now live in. I truly worry about this bizarre world that my young children are growing up in and main stream media is to blame. I now have to explain to my kids what EDS is thanks to Viagra and prime time commercials on the Family Channel. I could ramble for hours but I can only hope for the best that society will reach a spilling point and put and end to this junk in the media.

I agree, the unfortunate quagmire we all faced with is to make a choice between two bad candidates.....It will take six years to clean out that bunch of lying tricksters in DC....This is the only plan that could work...A state senator has an election every 6 year,within that period there are three house elections 2 years and one presidential election 4 years....If for a period of six years the american people (majority) voted with this slogan "Whoever is in is out"we will have been able to give Washington an enima...

the brainwashing is perpetrated by the MSM that chooses to ignore obamas close associations.

why have the MSM ignored all the very real and questionable alliances obama has?

that is propaganda, obama and bill ayers worked very closely.

doesnt obama associate with anyone but dangerous radicals?

this is the guy we want in charge?



Obama Pal Bill Ayers Stomps on Old Glory

Here's a shot of Obama's friend Bill Ayers, the guy at whose house his political career was launched:



You might recognize the flag under his feet: it's ours. The picture is from 2001, when Ayers was serving on the board of the Woods Fund with Obama. He gave $200 to Obama's State Senate campaign fund that year, and in the September 11 New York Times announced,

I don't regret setting bombs; I feel we didn't do enough.

Ayers was extensively involved in terrorist activity directed against the USA, but got off on a technicality and is now a revered figure in the education establishment. His views do not seem to have changed.

Despite being a member of Barack Obama's circle, Ayers actually has something nice to say about America:

Guilty as sin, free as a bird, it's a great country.

If the MSM is able to install his colleague Obama in the White House, it will soon be an even greater country for those who hate it, though significantly less great for the rest of us.


Artice:

Bill Ayers

Leader of the 1960s and 70s domestic terrorist group Weatherman

“Kill all the rich people. ... Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”

Participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972

Currently a professor of education at the University of Illinois

Sarah Palin has the courage of her convictions....and once the cowardly politically correct campaign managers step aside we will see and hear an airing of truth with respect to exactly who Mr.Obama really is and who his freinds are..and after that if he still prevails then the will of people has spoken and hail to the chief....Lets Look at Acorn,Freddie Mac,Fannie Mae and all the democratic influence since the end of the Clinton Admin with respect to Government intervention with respect to pressure to write mortgages to people whose only qualification was they were a minority and while we are at it lets look at Mr. Raines tenure at Freddie Mac and his style of management....

In my world, there is a very big difference between fact and opinion, but in this world, the two are often blurred, and this thread is a prime example of such.

To wit: We do know that there is a relationship between Obama and Ayers. We do not know the full extent of that relationship. We know that Obama worked with Ayers. We know that Ayers hosted at least one fundraiser for Obama, and has personally donated to Obama's campaign. We know Obama and Ayers live in the same neighborhood, and that their children attend the same schools. This is fact. How we characterize their relationship is opinion.

Likewise, we know that Obama is associated with a few other people whose characters we might question; including Rev. Wright, Jodie Evans, Tony Rezko, Rahid Khalidi, Raila Odinga, Khalid al-Monsour. Obama's associations with these people is fact. How we characterize the relationship is opinion.

Many people feel not enough has been done by either the media or the DNC to get out the facts about Obama, empowering us to make a decision based on the facts and just the facts. In fact, the media has neglected to cover many disturbing stories about Obama at all.

For example:

1. The Phil Berg lawsuit, challenging Obama's status as a natural born citizen, eligible to run for President.

2. Charges made by Larry Sinclair, and the subsequent abuse and bullying endured (including his arrest by the DA in Delaware, who just happens to be Joe Biden's son).

3. Obama's full medical records, including any and all health risks from smoking cigarettes, as well as the illicit drugs he has consumed.

4. Anti-Obama websites being taken down via cyber-attacks by Obama supporters.

We, the people, are not being served well by our Fourth Estate. Neither are we serving ourselves well when we accept such drivel, and we do not demand the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

This is not denying ignorance, but feeding ignorance. We can do better. If not, and we lose our democracy, it will be our own fault.

Well, why the hell would anybody turn on Fox News ?

I haven 't watched TV ( except in bars and airports ) since the mid eighties.

However, the only radio station I get out here in the boondocks has Alan Weiner ( Michael Savage ) and others for excellent coverage of world and national events.

Ahhh... come to think of it- I don 't listen to radio these days, either.

Does this make me smarter or more sane than anyone else ? No.

Man.... I was going to post something clever and adroit until all I saw in the earlier posts was "yes I did". "no you didn't", "yes they did", "no they didn't".

Lets try some intelligent (sorry my own personal bias rears its head) discussion ( note: I'm sorry again, I'm not talking about you posters that actually made a point, just the back and forth banter between a few that sounded like something heard on a playground ).

IMHO, when I want the news, I don't go to any single source. I use the internet more than TV most of the time. When I REALLY want a "third" opinion I turn on the BBC or even Canadian TV ( I live in northern NY). And with all the talk about why does PBS get taxpayer dollars, at least they're not owned by a single person or corporation that try to spin their version of events. Can ANY news source be biased, sure, either intentionally or subconsciously. Everybody has an opinion, even newscasters and there are times when their own personal views leak through. Its just a matter of if that "leak" is a dribble or a torrent.

I had a most unpleasant experience that I will NOT repeat after the first Presidential debate. I caught myself switching back and forth between cousin Keith and Uncle Bill until I found myself curled up in the fetal position with a pillow over my head, drooling like a fool and with a few tears slowly trickling down my cheek, muttering "Please make stop, please make it stop".

I get so fed up with negative ads, nationally and locally (they can really get nasty) that I am actually looking forward to Miss Blossom's prediction for the 14th.
