Mccain doesn't have the experience to be president. He has bullied his way through the Senate. He is erratic, and sometimes demented. He and his successionist speaker vp nominee should be shown the way back to their homestate. By the way, why is he always copying Obama. Doesn't he have any ideas of his own?

Aside from the obvious hypocrisy concerning Palin's even lesser experience level, the Republicans seem to miss a very important quality of a leader. Someone who can mobilize support, create enthusiasm, and instill a sense of calm would also qualifiy as a leader. Someone who knows their own limitations, or for that matter that they even have them, and defer to someone with more expertise.

Who hasn't gone to their own Doctor, only to be"referred" to someone with more experience in a particular field of medicine?

History has given us countless freshmen, rookies, privates, and apprentices whom their teachers, coaches, captains, and bosses new immediately were a cut above, unfazed, who carried themselves with a maturity and confidence usually found in more "experienced" leaders.

Barack Obama is THAT type of leader.

Having worked for an "older doctor" in the past, his advice to me was "go with the younger and more recently graduated doctors". He said they were more up-to-date with everything and not stuck in the year they graduated from med school such as he was. He also said the older doctors never seemed to have the time to stay current with advances in science and medicine.

Seems this old dinosaur is still stuck in the 1960's. His thinking has been marred and damaged from his stay at the Hanoi Hilton. He is unable to put together a simple sentence without fumbling with names, places and dates.

This is not the person we want to run this country.

Well, that just blows McCanes reasoning out the window!

Question: Does anyone know where there's a cache of all these vile mailers on the net? They're terrible one at a time and I would imagine laying them all out in front of someone or getting a package of all of them to some of the traditional media would be high impact.

Or a witch doctor?

Well, yeah, of course I wouldn't want Obama as my doctor, seeing as how he's not a doctor, he's a politician and anyway will be busy getting America back on track.

I wouldn't want my doctor as President, either. Nor would I ask my dentist to put up siding on my house, or go to a Jiffy Lube when I get a toothache.

Silly RNC, making apples-to-oranges comparisons like that. :)

Nobody has actual experience to be president except an incumbent president running for a second term. So this argument has always been invalid. But the line about "if he was your doctor..." etc., is just plain stupid.

In theory only :) W had all that experience ......

Thanks SFD for stating the obvious to intelligence, but that which seems to eludes some.

I made that argument for weeks during the primary, when Hills made the claim. HA HA HA, She was actually saying to America, "She had more Presidential" experience than O. I kept asking this Huff-crowd, how is that possible without also admitting to "ANTI-NEPOTISM", as either running or a part of Bill's presidency. Of course I was shot-down for that argument.

This is not even an intelligent argument nor RNC Mailer for Hills or Mac.

Than again, they were/are looking for the low-info voter at this point.

The people in the Republican Party continue to believe that voters are as stupid as they are, and will believe this nonsense. The ONLY people who would be influenced by this trash are the people who weren't going to vote for Obama anyway - for the obvious but unverbalized reason:race; and this gives them an ideological fig leaf to do what they are going to do and not have to face their own biases.

In making volunteer calls for Obama, I am struck by the number of people who are actually embarrassed to admit they plan to vote for McCain. I try to be polite and tell them it's really OK; that choice is what makes America great. I can sense their embarrassment, because I am being reasonable and they KNOW why they are voting for McCain. It hurts to know the truth about yourself.

Great comment!

McCane is only catering to a certain type of person. As you said - that person will not vote for Obama anyway, and Obama knows this. He reached out to 100,000 people out of a town of 6 million yesterday (plus 50k more after that)...I'd say that is pretty significant.

Perhaps if these people are embarrassed enough, when they hit the actual polls they will change their mind - I dunno - wishful thinking, but hey, i've got hope...:)

A town of 6 million? Are you referring to Denver? As of the 2000 census the entire state of Colorado only had 4.5 million people, and although I'm sure it's grown in the ensuing 8 years I doubt it's added a third again as many people in that time. And that's the whole state, not the city. My quick check shows that the entirety of Denver county had less than 600,000 population in 2000. (Which, after all, makes Obama's crowd even more impressive.)

I had an oral surgeon in training take out my wisdom teeth and he did a fine job. And for my g.p. I switched from an older doctor to somebody younger after the old dude missed a diagnosis and I got seriously ill.

all the republicans have left is the usual fear and smear that they always use. They have zero ideas or vision and no answers for the problems facing this country.
All they know is fear and smear.
The good news is that it is not working. people are sick of this and sick of the republicans constant negativity and trying to scare everyone into voting for them.
They tuned the republicans attacks out.
Funny how the republicans just don't seemed to get it.

If Obama was applying for the Secret Service he couldn't pass the background check. No problem for President, apparently.

Do you think Palin would pass having a husband who is a member of a secessionist group whose leader was killed making bombs?

Do ya? Do ya?

Obama is a very smart guy with a lot of wisdom and common sense, and he knows how to surround himself with smart people. I'd say that counts for a whole hell of a lot more than what McCain offers.
