    Woohoo!!! Welcome back, for sure.

    Not sure if anyone watched the Food Network, but I saw an advertisement today that Michelle Obama is going to be on Paula's Party this weekend! You might want to check your local listings for the time...I can't find anything definitive online. And I can't remember from the ad. It's either Friday or Saturday, but I THINK it's Saturday (the 20th). From the previews, it looks like it would be fun to watch! You can watch an Extra! promo for the show on Paula's website:

    And who said Michelle Obama couldn't cook for her family or whatever? (I think it was in the Sarah Palin thread...) Psh...

    The 1st Presidential Debate is scheduled for next Friday, September 26. I don't know the time yet, but it should be interesting given the state of the economy - which has never been McSame's strong point.

    Hehehehe! Such exciting statements. Thanks for sharing! I especially like the "Ultimate 'Bridge to Nowhere'". Tehe!

    And hmm...Maybe McCain should use the economic crisis as an opportunity to show his true knowledge on the matter. Oh, wait... :/

    Default A Conservative for Obama

    A Conservative for Obama
    My party has slipped its moorings. It’s time for a true pragmatist to lead the country.

    http://www.dmagazine.com/ME2/dirmod....A3EF81822D9F8E

    "THE MORE I LISTEN TO AND READ ABOUT “the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate,” the more I like him. Barack Obama strikes a chord with me like no political figure since Ronald Reagan. To explain why, I need to explain why I am a conservative and what it means to me.

    In 1964, at the age of 16, I organized the Dallas County Youth for Goldwater. My senior thesis at the University of Texas was on the conservative intellectual revival in America. Twenty years later, I was invited by William F. Buckley Jr. to join the board of National Review. I later became its publisher.
    <>
    Most important, Obama will be a realist. I doubt he will taunt Russia, as McCain has, at the very moment when our national interest requires it as an ally. The crucial distinction in my mind is that, unlike John McCain, I am convinced he will not impulsively take us into another war unless American national interests are directly threatened.

    “Every great cause,” Eric Hoffer wrote, “begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” As a cause, conservatism may be dead. But as a stance, as a way of making judgments in a complex and difficult world, I believe it is very much alive in the instincts and predispositions of a liberal named Barack Obama."

    Seems that Barack Obama DOES connect with women because he does understand their issues, and backs legislation to support them.

    (CNN) — Rep. Wayne Gilchrest, the Maryland Republican who lost a heated primary challenge earlier this year, said Friday he's endorsing Democrat Barack Obama's White House bid.

    Gilchrest, who has served in the House for close to two decades, told a Maryland radio station Obama and his running mate Sen. Joe Biden have the experience needed for the job.

    He also has a double-digit advantage on handling the current problems on Wall Street, and as a result, there has been a rise in his overall support. The poll found that, among likely voters, Obama now leads McCain by 52 percent to 43 percent.

    I was just watching CNN on my lunch break. McCain is calling on Obama to suspend the campaign and delay the debates due to the financial crisis. So after an entire year of market uncertainty, now, just before the debates on domestic issues he wants to return to Washington to work on the problem. What's that clucking I hear?

    They're awaiting Obama's statement. Apparently Obama called McCain and asked him if he wanted to issue a joint statement on the financial crisis this morning. I say they both return to Washington and still debate. The topic is more relevant now than ever and I really want to know where they stand. Don't hole up now.

    The bailout deal is dead in the water according to a Republican from Texas. They don't have the votes. Let's see what Congress can come up with now.

    I agree with you...I don't think they should delay the debates. I, more than ever, want to hear what each side (especially McSame) has to say (or not say) about the economy. AND OTHER ISSUES, too. And the sooner the better. With it being this close to election, I think it's in everyone's best interests to go ahead with the debates. But that's just my two little cents. Yes, we're at an economic crisis, but like you said...it's been building up for a long, long time. I don't see why they should hold everything up for this right now. What they have to say about the issues (including the economy!) is way more important to me at this minute. Why not even hold everything up AFTER the first debate? Perhaps I'm just impatient, but I really feel like I need to see this first debate to really get a clearer picture in my mind of what's really going on. (Especially with all of the crazy media stuff floating around.)

    Here is a partial response:
    "I am calling on the president to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself," McCain told reporters in New York. "It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem." Video Watch McCain's announcement »

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued a statement saying the presidential debate should go on and that McCain's negotions should not be a "photo op."

    "It would not be helpful at this time to have them come back during these negotiations and risk injecting presidential politics into this process or distract important talks about the future of our nation's economy," the statement said. "We need leadership, not a campaign photo op."

    "If there were ever a time for both candidates to hold a debate before the American people about this serious challenge, it is now," he added."

    OMG! I think I 'get' it

    Let me correct myself. I believe the debates were originally to be on domestic issues, but the Obama campaign negotiated to have it changed to foreign policy because they didn't want race to become an issue in the debate in Oxford, Mississippi.

    I think Obama should have offered to have Biden debate Palin on Friday.

    Hilarious interview with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

    STEPHEN COLBERT: One of the things I love about my character is I can make vast declarations and it doesn't matter if I'm wrong. I love being wrong. So my character can tell you exactly what's going to happen: The Democrats are going to change everything. We're going to have gay parents marrying their own gay babies. Obama's gonna be sworn in on a gay baby. The oath is gonna end ''So help me, gay baby.''
    LOL

    The rest of it is just as hilarious.

    I like what Colbert said about the news...which is so true these days..

    STEPHEN COLBERT: There's not more news now than there was when we were kids. There's the same amount from when it was just Cronkite. And the easiest way to fill it is to have someone's opinion on it. Then you have an opposite opinion, and then you have a mishmash of fact and opinion, and you leave it the least informed you can possibly be.

    Thumbsup Debate surveys favor Obama

    CNN: Obama 67%, McCain 27% (!)

    MSNBC: Obama 52%, McCain 34%

    He held his own. I was somewhat dismayed at McCain's inability to look at Obama. As a result, I thought his performance was compromised.

    Good job, Barack.

    yeah McCain's language tried to appear more experienced and strong, but his body language didn't at all.

    Krista,
    He has been saying the SAME things for 27 years. I would hope his words appeared strong. He could repeat them from memory - er, mostly memory

    Okay, I felt the need to defend Obama regarding a couple things about the debate, seeing as how some people are getting worked up over things in other parts of the forum. And since the Nobama thread is off limits to Obama supporters now, I thought I'd share my thoughts here.

    Okay, so a few people complained that Obama seemed condescending in his discourse during the debate. They pointed out that he interrupted McCain, and that he called him by his first name rather than his title "Senator McCain". I felt his interruptions were merited, seeing as how McCain was spouting blatant lies. And, too, with the time crunch, I felt that's what they were SUPPOSED to do. And McCain did his share of talking over, too. And calling him on first name basis really only seems appropriate to me. That's like saying a teacher should call another teacher "Mr. So-and-So" rather than their first name when they are talking to them on a personal level. That's just stupid. AND CONDESCENDING? What about McCain not even looking at Obama during the debate!!! I felt McCain was being much more condescending than Obama.

    Another thing that is getting talked up a lot is when Obama said "I have a bracelet, too." And that he looked down at it before naming whose it was. Okay. I felt the way that Obama brought that in was COMPLETELY appropriate because when McCain mentioned his, he said it in a way that was being used for his own personal gain. It seemed like such the same emotional tear-jerker story that was being brought up for his own political gain. I thought that was tacky in itself. The way Obama talked about his was more respectful, bringing McCain back down to earth to say that just because you don't support the war doesn't mean you feel for the troops. AND, when Obama looked down at it, I don't think he was looking at it to remember the name. I think he was just looking at it in thought. If someone asks me the time, and I KNOW it's 10:00, I'll still look down at my watch before I say what time it is. It's just something I do, and I'm pretty sure that's what was going on in this instance.

    I'm just sick of McCain supporters finding stupid stuff to harp on. I'm tired of being referred to as a cult follower because I believe in the change Obama can bring to our country. However, they can call me whatever they want, because I don't care. I know that I make choices of who I support based on facts and deep thought. If that's what it means to be a cult follower, then I must be out of my mind.
