I hope Sarah mops the floor with the plagiarist Joe Biden.

For those of us who are not “patriotic” enough to want to pay far higher taxes, Joe Biden and Barack Hussein must be defeated… Resoundingly.

Palin did better than expected but Biden's experience was quite evident.

No wonder Washington is so screwed up. Some of Biden's answers we so full of double talk and un confirmed rethoric, one could easily see how the substance gets lost and showmanship becomes the order of the moment. A loud voice scares people. Sort of like when Nicastro talks about himself, (which he does all the time!)

Save America...McCain Palin

Don't want anybody named Hussein with their finger on our nuc's, raising our taxes and destroying our economy any furthur then he, Dodd, Raines and a whole lot of other Hussein un-patriotic liberals have already done.

How blantant can it get...this un American democrat wants to make nice nice with the likes of that Iranian American hater who said IN the UN ON American soil that America' empire is at an end.

Just can't happen that way. As a democrat I am so discusted with where this party wants to take our city state and our country. I will be voting Republican all the way.

Biden cleaned her folksy, back-woods, full-of-crap clock! She was fumbling around like a blind person in the dark. If she winked into the camera one more time I was going to puke! She though this was some type of beauty contest or personality contest. It wasn't! Last night's debate was a contest to determine who will be second in command of the most powerful country in the world.

Palin in unqualified and she showed it last night. Biden is qualified and he clearly showed it.

McIdiot's gamble is a losing bet!

OBAMA/BIDEN will be in control come January '09. I only wish it could be sooner!!!!

It was evident in the debate that Biden had experience: 35 years to learn how to doublespeak with the best (worst) of them. Palin's answers were forthright and honest. Biden continually pointed his finger at Bush, as if he were running against him. Palin looked forward more often; into the camera and into our future.

Does Biden know more trivia about the last 35 years of foreign policy? God, I hope so. But Palin showed that she knows enough to do a great job. She is more trustworthy and has a can-do attitude. Her executive experience is a huge asset that Biden does not have.

Palin won.

How come it's not okay for Obama supporters to play the race card, but it is okay for Hillary supporters to play the gender card?

Interesting debate overall. I'm a McCain backer, and last night's events weren't going to change that, but I was curious to see how each VP candidate performed.

I thought the major theme of last night was going to be "do no harm." Both Biden and Palin have their drawbacks, and I figured that both would try to be careful in their words.

I thought both had their strong points - Palin was much better at the beginning of the debate, into the middle, and Biden picked it up quite a bit at the end (especially when discussing foreign policy, which is supposed to be his expertise).

One thing that struck me was the difference between the radio and television broadcasts. I watched for a short time at the law school, and then again when I got home; in between, I listened on the radio while driving home. I thought that both candidates came off much better on radio than they did on television, especially Palin.

All in all, I think it was a successful night for both. Palin exceeded expectations, and Biden was able to remain collected, and not fly off the handle, so to speak.

"Palin won."

Were you sober while watching the debate, 10:09AM? You had to be under the influence of something to draw that conclusion!

Even McTraitor himself has been forced to set the record straight on at least one of the misstatements Sarah "poor-excuse-for-a-spokesperson" Palin made last night. And I'm sure there will be more corrections to come.

She won the debate, you betcha! Wink! Wink! LOL!

The debate proved that Ms. Palin is ready to be our next VP. She was intelligent, straight forward and honest (a foreign concept to Joe "the plagiarist" Biden).

"McTraitor"? You're not drunk Mr/Ms. October 3, 2008 1:44 PM, you're warped. Are you a member of the Communist Party? Otherwise you're statement is ludicrous.

The irritaing thing about Biden is that every time he tried to make a point or when he made a statement, some part of it was a lie. He is a disingenuous liar and anyone who votes for "Baby-sitter Biden" and his little puppet Barak is a fool.

John McCain is a TRAITOR, Oct. 3 11:01PM!

Copy and paste the link below into your browser and see for yourself. I've also included some of the complete expose below in case you aren't smart enough to follow the link I've provided.


You can't make this stuff up, these are the facts as they exist.

June 22, 2007 interview between Ret. Army Col. Earl Hopper and Interviewer Gerard "Jerry" Kiley of Veterans Against John McCain (http://www.vietnamveteransagainstjohnmccain.com)

Earl Hopper: I'm a US Army retired colonel. I spent 30 year in the Army. I was Airborne Special Forces, I fought in Europe, Korea, and Vietnam. My oldest son was also on active duty, He was in the Air Force and shot down over North Vietnam. He remains missing in action. Although the government has declared him dead, we have no body; no evidence of his death.

I first became familiar with the present senator from Arizona, John McCain (and I hate to say "from Arizona" because I'm a native of Arizona. I was born and raised there, and still live there) but, from the very beginning, in talking to the returned POWs, in the very beginning we began to hear some very bad things about John McCain and his activities while he was in the POW camps.

As an example (and I'll quote this because it can be checked out), he personally wrote an article in the magazine [US News & World Report] , wherein he stated that during the time he was in prison (in fact I think it was 5 or 7 days after he was captured) he asked the [North] Vietnamese to take him to the hospital, the Vietnamese hospital. And in so doing, he promised them that he would would give them classified military information.

They did. He did.

They took him to the hospital, questioned him, and he gave highly classified information. The most important of which was he gave the "package route", which was the route to bomb North Vietnam. He told in detail the altitude they were flying, the direction, if they made a turn, and how to get (into N. Vietnam ?) He also gave them where the targets were; of their primary entry. Whether it was a railroad; whether is was a bridge; whether it was an ammunition or fuel dump; or whatever it was, he gave them the primary targets the United States was interested in.

After he gave them that information, the Vietnamese naturally moved their anti- aircraft defenses into those areas and built them up and strengthened them. They also moved the rockets, aircraft weapons, into the "package route" of where the airplanes were flying in or egressing. The result of this, according to the information that came out later on, in intelligence, was that the Vietnamese started knocking down our aircraft in greater amounts than they had before. In fact, there was an estimate that we started losing 60% more aircraft and more men than we had previously. This went on for about a month, and it got so bad, that they finally called off the bombing of North Vietnam because of the information that McCain had given to them

McTraitor is a very appropriate moniker for this jerk! You're a communist if you vote for the repugnant republican ticket! Do you really want to turn the country over to a couple of frauds like Grandpa McBush and Failin' Palin?

Educate yourself!!!!

The next President of the United States will be Barack Hussein Obama. God bless him and Joe Biden, they're going to need all the help they can get to fix the mess caused by the worst President and Vice-President this country has ever known!

The term "repugnant Republicans" shows a lack of tolerance and a lack of intelligence. Anyone who might say "disgusting Democrats" would be guilty of the same. Blanket statements just don't fly. For example, you can't ignore the HUGE number of Democrats who will be voting for McCain/Palin in November. Why? Because they can't accept Obama's close affiliations with people of bad character, especially the anti-American preacher and the terrorist. Because they don't want higher taxes. Because they want to finish business in Iraq. Because they respect life. Because they want to preserve their right to own a gun. Because they want to drill for oil, as well as explore other options. Maybe it's one of these reasons, maybe two, or even all of them. But many of the die-hard Democrats that I know, the ones who ALWAYS vote the party line, cannot bring themselves to do it this time. They will be voting Republican.

Nicely composed comments, October 6, 2008 4:25 PM.

It's the nicest repetition of brainwashed "repugnant republican" bull poop I've read today.

Let's face it, what's left of the once powerful and proud republican party is an embarrassment to itself, and beyond repair. Desperate and out of ideas, talent, and direction. They're morally bankrupt after selling their souls to the evil empire!

My like-minded friends and I agree that any "repugnant republican" who crosses our path will neither be treated tolerantly nor assumed to be intelligent, not anymore! That day is gone.

It's unfortunate. Because most of us were naturally tolerant and intelligent Americans, but now we're taking our gloves off because we're pissed off at what has been done to the U.S.A.!

With a little self-education, you would be too! EDUCATE YOURSELF!

To your weak point about democrats voting against OBAMA/BIDEN, democrats who vote against OBAMA/BIDEN are nothing more than rat finks who have stopped thinking for themselves, just like Leiberman the "cowardly connecticut convert."

Happily, there's much to be confident about. The latest polls are now showing droves of Independents who plan to vote for OBAMA/BIDEN, so we'll be just fine come election day, and don't underestimate the young first time voters who are demanding change.

The polls will be soaring higher after tomorrow night's debate. More reason to be happy. The momentum will build for OBAMA/BIDEN as the latest tactics by the McCain campaign of negative rhetoric backfires on him. He's toast!

Something to think about. A fact nobody seems to talk about publicly. McCain has an incurable form of skin cancer. The best expert actuarial estimates predict two, maybe four years before he succumbs to the fatal disease. Prominent Dermatologist and Oncologists agree.

What does this mean? The U.S. would be in for another four years of BUSHWHACKING, that's what it means.

And President Failing Palin (God forbid) would be nothing more than you see today: a wind up barbie doll being controlled by the "repugnant republican" underworld of crime and corruption. In other words, we'd have more of the same, but likely much worse.

We cannot let this happen. Enough is enough!!!

Vote for change we can believe in!
Vote OBAMA/BIDEN on November 4!!!

Before you go voting for Obama, you ought to take a peek at his wife's thesis paper. They tried to block it from being accessed, but the cat was already out of the bag. Here's a tiny sample of what's going on in the future first lady's mind (God forbid)...

America was a nation founded on 'crime and hatred'. Moreover, she stated that whites in America were 'ineradicably racist'. The
1985 thesis, titled 'Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community' was written under her maiden name, Michel le LaVaughn Robinson.

Michelle Obama stated in her thesis that to 'Whites at Princeton , it often seems as if, to them, she will always be Black first...' However, it was reported by a fellow black classmate, 'If those 'Whites at Princeton ' really saw Michelle as one who always would 'be Black first,' it seems that she gave them that impression'.

'There was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the black community, I am obligated to this community and will utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit the black community first and foremost.'

What is Michelle Obama planning to do with her future resources if she's first lady that will elevate black over white in America ?

Michelle Obama does not look into a crowd of Obama supporters and see Americans. She sees black people and white people eternally conflicted with one another.

The thesis provides a trove of Mrs. Obama's thoughts and world view seen through a race-based prism. This is a very divisive view for a potential first lady that would do untold damage to race relations in this country in a Barack Obama administration.

Michelle Obama's intellectually refined racism should give all Americans pause for deep concern.

Now maybe she's changed, but she sure sounds like someone with an axe to grind with America... and you actually want this woman as our first lady????

A democrat website disputes obamas' claim that he was born in the United States


There appears to be no question that Defendant Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was a U.S. citizen. It is also undisputed, however, that his father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a citizen of Kenya. Obama’s parents, according to divorce records, were married on or about February 2, 1961.

Defendant Obama claims he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961 and it is uncertain in which hospital he claims to have been born. Obama’s grandmother on his father’s side, his half-brother and half-sister all claim Obama was born not in Hawaii but in Kenya. Reports reflect that Obama’s mother traveled to Kenya during her pregnancy; however, she was prevented from boarding a flight from Kenya to Hawaii at her late stage of pregnancy (which, apparently, was a normal restriction, to avoid births during a flight). By these reports, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama gave birth to Obama in Kenya, after which she flew home and registered Obama’s birth. There are records of a “registry of birth” for Obama, on or about August 8, 1961 in the public records office in Hawaii.

We OBAMA/BIDEN supporters are simply enjoying the afterglow of our next President's undeniably superior performance at the Tuesday night debate.

I suppose we could taunt you "repugnant republicants" but you're already suffering enough. Frankly, I'm personally starting to feel a little sorry for all of you.

But don't worry, when Obama is President he will still make his decisions based on what is best for all American citizens, not just those who supported his campaign. The reason being that he is a much bigger man (in every conceivable way) than McBush.

One more reason why the polls are trending in OBAMA's favor. People trust he will do what is right by the American people. The same cannot be said for the republicant candidate, unfortunately. And you only have yourselves to blame for it.

PEACE OUT, for now...

If you think Obama won the debate, you're delusional.

12:01 I don't think 10:15 was trying to scare people with lies, the truth is enough. Obama did not feel it necessary to leave his anti-America preacher and he is friends with a terrorist. At the very least, those are not wise decisions. Our president should be some one who does make wise decisions. And if he actually shares these people's views, well, I don't even want to think about that...

In addition, his patriotism is questionable. Can you imagine, our Commander-in-Chief not loyal to the USA? It could wreak all kinds of havoc in the world, but especially here at home.

10:15 sounded genuinely afraid to me. I have the same fears, and there are many thousands of people who feel the same. It's real. It's no tactic.

A friendly open letter to all the Bristol Blog repugnant republicants:

My friends, it's sad that I even have to point this out again to folks of your ilk, but you just don't get it.

Every repugnant republicant who follows your lead and continues to regurgitate destructive rhetoric is just digging a deeper hole for McIdiot and Failin' Pailin. My friends, you are literally handing the Democrats control of the White House, Congress and Senate. If you don't want to take my word for it, simply take a look at the polling trends at Pollster.com (thanks, Steve for the website suggestion, it's great!).

Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden understand what's important to the American people, my friends. They are offering solutions as well as hope while listening to the people. They are demonstrating responsible leadership, unlike their opponents who are being dangerously irresponsible.

The McTraitor campaign has stopped listening. Some argue they have also stopped caring.
This is not what America needs.

My friends, empirical data shows the undecided voters, and the majority of the American voters, want more answers/solutions to the troubles we are facing and less destructive rhetoric. OBAMA/BIDEN are providing those answers/solutions daily. Their opponents are not.

Here's a prediction, my friends: soon after the landslide Democratic victory on November 4, you republicants will look back on this failed strategy with profound regret. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth due to your own folly, and most deservedly, I might add.

So, once again, from the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you to everyone who continues to repeat the destructive and vile republicant rhetoric while avoiding the substantive issues undecided voters (moderates and independents alike) care about. We OBAMA/BIDEN supporters will be continuously grateful to you all as election day draws nearer each day. :o)

Yours truly, and with best regards,

A Bristol Democrat and OBAMA/BIDEN supporter.

P.S. A special shout out to...

I choose being labeled a radical over being called a maverick! We need more radicals and fewer mavericks in this world. We need radical ideas to take us into the future. We need BARACK OBAMA and JOE BIDEN to restore this country back to the once glorious United States of America!

Can I get an AMEN! You betcha!

How would you know? You seem incapable of it. The truth about Barak Obama's anti-American stance, his radical ties, his wife's blatant racism and Biden's lies and deceit are facts that you seem totally oblivious to. You excuse and minimize Obama's radical past. You just ignore his wife's racist view and wave away Biden's lies and plagiarism, as if these FACTS were trivial. They are not. Yet, the obamians go on chanting - obaa-baa-bama...sheep in the midst of wolves, oblivious to the danger. If Obama wins the election, the entire country will learn a lesson, a very, very painful one...

We are in great danger. The terrorists are fanatic Muslims. They believe that it is okay, even their duty, to kill anyone who will not convert to Islam. It has been estimated that about one third or over three hundred million Muslims are sympathetic to the terrorists cause... Hitler and Tojo combined did not have nearly that many potential recruits. So... we either win it - or lose it - and you ain't gonna like losing.

America is not at war. The military is at war. America is at the mall, or watching the movie stars.

Remember Obama said in his book 'Audacity of Hope', 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction'.....what better place for the Muslins to control our country, than in the office of the President of USA .

It is widely known a persons' early childhood has a life-long effect on their future views and beliefs .

Consider where mr. obama spent these critical formative years . His early childhood was spent with his mother and step-father in Indonesia attending muslim schools .

Combine this with his 20+ year relationship with Rev. Wright and it becomes crystal clear the direction America would take should he ever be in possession of this nations' highest office.

Please consider these FACTS when you go to vote on November 4th.

Insight should also be gained from his recent tour of Europe where he held massive anit-America rallies .
