1>>McCain says that Obama wants to "Share The Wealth" which Repubs take as meaning give to the poor in the form of WELFARE NOT TRUE
2>>Obama raised a lot MORE campaign money than McCain
3>>Joe the Plumber was supposed to be an on the fence voter who wanted to start his own business
He asked both McCain and Obama what their tax plans were about
Turns out Joe isn't even named Joe he isn't a Plumber and is related to one of McCain's Cohorts Charles Keating. Joe was a PLANT for McCain
4>>Palin spent 150k on the RNC'S dime she also charged back 21k to the Alaskan People as "Business Expenses" when they were to take her kids on trips to watch their dad in a Snowmobile race,
Her Pregnant daughter Bristol and her spent 7 days and 6 nights in New York and they all showed up at places they WERE NOT invited too
5>McCain says Obama is a Socialist because he wants to RAISE taxes on those who make 250k a year or more and give a TAX BREAK to the MIDDLE CLASS AMERICANS
Obama / BIden for the BETTERMENT of the NATION
The Alternative would be a DETERMENT to the NATION
