It's too bad that a guy who is claiming he will financially help the middle class (by taking money from the rich...before he taxes the middle class, which is based on liberal precedents) yet takes hundreds of millions of dollars from them to make big, fancy infomercials. No matter which side you are on you have to agree it's a joke how much they spend.


I do agree with you...all told, the total price of this election for McCain and Obama will total nearly $5 billion.

Amazing.

I have to say this. His supporters that gave the money are more than happy with how he spent it. They really want change and want him to win. They gave him the money to help him do exactly that. WIN

Not the point. The point is do we really need that much money going to a guy (either side) spending it on lies and fear mongering to get himself elected to a job that is really done by a group of people and not really him. That money could be spent on much better things and nobody can deny that.

Would it be better if more bumper stickers were purchased? Where else is the money going to go, under campaign finance rules?

Barak Obama's paid 30 min. TV air time

Wow..there are videos all over. Confusing. I guess this is the one:
30 Minute Speach


My apologies for the mix up. The video titles were deceiving! Correct one above

I am 100% certain if Obama is elected, my country as I have known it growing up, will no longer exist.


I couldn't have said it better, I feel the same way.

"...It might be tempting to suppose that these partisan differences in income growth are a coincidence of timing, merely reflecting the fact that Republicans held the White House through most of the past three decades of slow, unequal growth. The partisan pattern, however, is remarkably consistent throughout the postwar period. Every Republican president since Dwight Eisenhower presided over increasing economic inequality, while only one Democrat — Jimmy Carter — did so. (I allow one year for each president’s economic policies to take effect, so the recession of 2001 is counted against Clinton, not Bush.)..."

The author of this blog assumes that Republican-held presidential years are fraught with economic turmoil for the poor and small gains for the middle class while the upper class flourishes. To some extent that's true. But he completely ignores the fact that in order to make a Democrat's tenure flourish the way they want it to, it requires substantial tax increases which economics 101 says you shouldn't do when your country is headed into a recession. So I have to disagree with the author's conclusions.

Oh and who is talking about another round of stimulus checks? And where do you think that money is ultimately going to come from? If you say the "rich", you might as well be saying "anyone who has a job".

Andrew, I'm also struggling to bite my tongue.

Open your eyes man. This country is ALREADY different than the one you and I experienced growing up. The nice tales of American democracy, integrity, and free-world leader is long gone.

We have shifted to a nationalistic, socialist economy...backed by a governemnt that has incrementally eroded our civil liberties since September 11. The powers afforded to the Executive Branch and now the Treasury Department directly violate those provided in the U.S. Constitution. Our government continues to violate us.

Now, how this country advances under Obama or McCain is not worth arguing. Be scared of Obama if you wish. But be scared of McCain. The Executive Branch is no longer the "checked and balanced" branch that we read in our little history books.

So enough with the "I fear Obama" crap. Fear our own present government, Congress, Treasury, President, and voting bloc that elects many of these idiots into office year-in-and-and-year-out.

Please, no personal disrespect to you. I respect your opinions. I'm just a very proud American, and very angry/disappointed at our current state of affairs.

This is not the America we used to know.


I mean no disrespect to y'all either. I just wish some of you (not necessarily all) would look on the other side of the fence and not whats being spoon fed.

You are right, our country isn't what it used to be. I don't blame this on any party as both contributed to it greatly.

My gears have finally been grinded, so forgive me for going off the wall. I still think Obama supporters are making a mistake, but unfortunately one man in a position as myself can't break down the barriers one is hiding behind.

I must also add, I have much more to gain of Obama's promises than McCains. I am a student ($4000) and currently my family is WAY below the poverty level (Increased aid and decreased taxes). I don't even understand how I manage to keep the power and internet bill paid. People tend to stereotype McCain supporters so I thought I should throw that out there.

OP: Sorry I took this off topic

and do you all think that by calling us all blind and ignorant, that you make your case better?

I feel like its bush telling me whats good for me all over again.


I am not blind nor ignorant because I support Barack Obama. I took the time, studied both sides, and came to an educated conclusion. I'm not some blind sheep. And I think many others went through the same process. Because we don't agree with you, doesn't mean we are blind, and you see the light. It means we disagree.

Obama's presidential campaign was one of the most professionally managed campaign I had ever witnessed. It has been consistent and broken new ground in exploring new mediums to get his message across. That should be a clue as to how his presidency will be conducted.

How about changing the rules, setting a limit, using the money for things that the candidates are fighting for. You know Obama could help people get out of foreclosure instead of spending it all on his campaign. Nah, that would actually make sense.

They should by law require all candidates to go through the Finance System, and allocate each of them the same amount of Money. That way, the best Candidate has a greater chance of winning, as opposed to the Wealthiest. This would also allow the other Parties (ie, Libertarian, Constitutional, etc), and even Independents, to have the same amount of Coverage opportunities as far as funding goes.

It amazes me how anyone be stupid enough to support spending hundreds of millions of dollars on ads to win a BS popularity contest to become a figure head who will accomplish little of what he promised.
