    I would never even consider voting for Obama. No action is better than bad action. But the way Mccain is using this bailout for political reasons is disgusting. Leave Congress out of this mess and let it fix itself. I never liked Mccain but I was ready to hold my nose and vote for him but he is losing me again. Some of you may have to convince me.

    If you vote for Obama you vote for continuing murder in our nation. Both political parties are using the present financial crisis for their campaigns. Yet McCain's comment yesterday was perfect, "We need to stop trying to fix blame, and start fixing the problem."

    However, right after that sentence he blamed the Democrats.

    I'm glad several media stations picked up on it because it stood out to me like a fly in the ointment.

    Here is the link in case anyone wants to see.

    If you vote for a third party candidate it wil be a vote against Obama and McCain.
    I tried to come up with a reason to vote for McCain but quite honestly I just don't know who he is anymore. I can't vote for someone I can't trust.
    My choices have been narrowed down to either Bob Barr or Chuck Baldwin.
    Both Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr are anti-abortion. So there really are other choices than the same ol,same ol Democrats and Republicans

    Who has a better chance of getting elected? Barr or Baldwin? Where are sitting in the polls?

    And exactly how is it that McCain is using this situation as you say "for political reasons" and Obama isn't. If anybody is guilty of politicizing this crisis it is the Speaker of the House and the little speech she gave just before the vote blaming it all on the Republicans.

    Double Post. What causes a message to not appear when first posted on to magically appear a few minutes later after taking the time to rewrite and re-post?

    No one said Obama isn't using the crises for political reasons. In fact, that is why he honored the request to stay off the Hill. He didn't want to bring politics to this critical legislative session.

    As for her speech, that is normal goings on. Most of those republican's have come clean and admitted they were not going to vote for the bill even before her speech. Her speech gave them a good excuse and was something they could exploit.

    They learned their constituents preferred to hear they didn't vote on the bill because it was against their principles of gov staying out of the way.

    My question is how can McCain be villafied while Obama isn't? In mho both sides are as guilty as sin. Our government has let us down and contiunes to do so. I'm still on the fence as to whether I will cast a vote for the President. I may leave that lever unpulled. Both will be lame excuses for a President in that both represent the same old same old that has got us into the supposed mess to begin with.

    My problem with Mccain is that he tries too much to act like a democrat. All this "reaching across the aisle" nonsense just means that he is the one giving up his principles to compromise with them. He seems ashamed of conservatism and is trying to woo liberals over to him by acting like them. As a conservative he should be against this bail-out in principle. So should KenH if he is a true libertarian, which he aint.

    exactly. I noticed it too.

    I don't like McCain, and neither do I trust him.

    Doesn't make any difference how they stand in the polls . Unless Christians truthfully vote according to Christan Values we will remain in the same old rut as usual. We limit ourselves when we believe we only have two choices and most of all we limit God if we do not belive it is possible for a real person with real Christian values to win. It starts with you and I being commited to voting for truly principaled candidates. If only we had the faith the size of a mustard seed we could accomplish much more and put this Nation back on the right track.

    Then that would eliminate Barr, IMO. Leaves Baldwin.

    Yeah Baldwin will probably be my pick in November.
    He may not stand much of a chance but at least I will feel good about casting my vote for a candidate that is more deserving.
