I hope that with the margins greater than in '04, if this happens, that it's too late to make a difference.

This is criminal:

MCCAIN CAMP DEFENDS THE BEHAVIOR?

The McCain campaign is justifying the rage of the angry mobs that they've created with divisive & deceptive pandering. Inciting crowds is a crime, is it not? What kind of leadership is this? Honestly?

The real question, though, is this:

Are McCain & Palin breeding would-be Barack Obama assassins?

It's classic Rovian tactics. Let someone else say the really nasty things, and then feign surprise or indignation when your opponent comments on it.

How someone could honestly take Obama's comments as an attack on the supporters themselves is beyond me. Put 3 little letters in front of "honestly" and it becomes a lot clearer.

Obama's comments there were really a pointed questioning of the McCain campaign's intentions and actions in riling up the crowds, rather than an attack on the crowds themselves, were they not? Then why is the McCain campaign in hysterics about Obama attacking the crowd, McCain supporters?

I think McCain is a man completely devoid of character at this point.

People often said that Hillary Clinton is what you get when a person has ambition and nothing less in life. Perhaps that description has found a more apt individual.

I'm actually impressed how calm and collected Obama has been about some of the things that have happened in the last few weeks. McCain's camp just looks fucking desperate by first defending this kind of action and then twisting Obama's words into attack...They've completely lost it.

I really do think that there's actual danger in this. Sure, creating such hatred keeps us mired in the unproductive either-or, red-or-blue, elitist-or-uninformed divided country that Bush & Rove created for us.

But there's real, physical danger in this.

In some ignorant circles, Obama would already have a price on his head for becoming the first black President.

How wide those circles will become when a whole political party encourages its followers to consider the man a terrorist who doesn't care about the country or its people?

Look at that Ohio "mob" video from youtube---look at what that woman's child says: "You have to touch him with gloves."

Jesus Christ. That makes me so indescribably sad.

I'm sure all of those people in the mob are good God-fearing Christians.

I hope they get the judgment day they profess to believe in.

It could happen...it could always happen. But at the same time you'd have to have a pretty short memory to think these kinds of hysterical accusations about a Presidential candidate in the thick of election season are unprecedented.

I think there needs to be a strong, forceful rebuttal of what McCain's camp is trying to pull with this twisted logic here. Though I admire Obama's ability to stay calm and cool, I do agree that if this kind of tenor becomes the norm at McCain rallies, it could very well present a real and growing danger to Obama's well-being.

I think Obama should do precisely what we're seeing in these youtube videos and on the daily show, etc. Run ads showing McCain's pledges and promises to hold a respectful campaign, run those clips where he even comes out and says "when a candidate goes negative you know they've got nothing to say" and then run what he and his campaign are producing now. It's staggering.
