I'm not saying that Obama did not run negative ads. We've had our fair share of them in PA. But an ad that points out the weaknesses in a policy is not on the same planet really as an ad that says your opponent is a liar. And I've seen McCain ads a-plenty that make that kind of charge.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

[color:blue]But an ad that points out the weaknesses in a policy</font color=blue> <-- Obama only been in Government what 3 years now he would know - what is a weakness ? ? What dropped in his lap is this current crises otherwise he would be yapping the same shiit at every election before this as all the others before him<br><br>
It's the job of a politician to study up on these things, to think about them, and to express his or her opinion, backed up as much as possible by facts. Your point, really that Obama lacks experience, is not entirely on the mark. If understanding policy issues is reserved only for people who've been in office for donkey's years (or maybe that should be elephant's years?), then there are a whole lot of people in think tanks, conservative and liberal both, who need to find another job.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

MrO has run more ads, call 'em attack or not, because he's raised more money. The only reason Mr. Scheiffer didn't LOL and point this out to McWhineyNuts is because Mr. Schieffer is a class act. 'Course, he's from down here, so that's a given. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it. Really.</font color=blue><br><br>

The split screen killed McCain's remote chance to attract undecideds ... McCain seemed over-caffeinated, severely over botoxed and angry as all get-out. <br><br>Besides Carp's made-up poll numbers and the DrudgeReport poll, all others show Obama winning by 20 - 30 points with undecideds.<br><br><br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>McCain was an angry chimp throwing his sh!t.<p><hr></blockquote><p>caught in the act. <br><br><br><br><br>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Obama ads has been attacking McCain as other 4 years of Bush - thats attacking McCains character<p><hr></blockquote><p>It appears you believe that president Bush and the current administration represent those of low character. Otherwise it wouldn't be an attack, would it? Understand? Four years of Bush equals something nasty? Aligning McCain with Bush and the current administration is something that makes McCain look bad?<br><br>Hmmm...<br><br>So it's not feeling too good being a Republican supporter at this moment, huh? What's that? You say you're not a Republican. Gosh, based on all the posts I've been catching up on, you sure could've fooled me.<br><br>Just accept the fact that the only people who felt McCain won that debate are the dyed in the wool GOP adherants. (followers, supporters etc if adherants is unfamiliar to you).<br><br>Feel free to wallow in denial though. <br><br>
honestly, i am just now back in the USA so i've seen only a few ads that were on youtube. so generally speaking, i think there's a difference between character assassination type ads (e.g., guilt by association) and attacking the policies of another politician as being dangerous. both are attack ads and both are negative campaigning. however, i think a responsible politician will promote their own ideas while also showing the problems with the opponents proposals. on the other hand, the politician who is being the most mean spirited will try and lump everything together and drag the other politician down with him/her -- at least, if they're smart they'd do this. from what i've read in polls, the public seems to believe that McCain has been the most guilty of the bad kind of negative campaigning. folks in swing states probably know the real deal. i've read that my swing state of Michigan is no longer a swing state so perhaps i'll make it the last few weeks without seeing the ads. <br><br>shucks! <br><br>EDIT: i just found <a href="http://ta-nehisicoates.theatlantic.com/archives/2008/10/presidents_to_represent_me.php">this</a>, which gets at the point i was trying to make: <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>You just heard why John McCain will lose. He pivoted from an attack on ACORN and Ayers to his campaign getting the economy back on track. Worst segue ever. The two don't line up. Ayers and ACORN don't take you to a larger campaign theme. This isn't "Swiftboating" which took you to the War on Terror. This isn't Willie Horton, which took you to crime. This isn't "States Rights" which takes you to busing and the Voting Rights Act. It's just empty demagoguery. It doesn't say anything about what is foremost in the electorate's minds.<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by FSM on 10/16/08 03:34 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
