I just think it is laughable how everyone makes this guy out to be a great speaker. He is just very good at reading off a sheet. He going to get killed in the debates. Maybe he can just avoid the questions there by saying its all above his pay grade.

That was a pretty blatant case of him screwing up and losing his place/train of thought. However, I'm fairly certain that even during that instance, he could have immediately come up with the number of houses he owns. ;)

some of the McCain senior moments are well documented. you can easily find them.

and they have not been used by the Obama campaign.

I hate picking on candidates for slip ups. McCain or Obama. Think of the grueling schedule they've been on since (at the very least) January. And then you have a squadron of howling monkeys on YouTube recording all their speeches and if they mess up it's a "senior moment" or "the guy can't speak off the cuff".

Fair enough. I sometimes get the impression in here, though, of when Obama makes a mistake, people say "Leave him alone. He gives speeches everyday and is tired." But when McCain makes a mistake, it's "a senior moment" and we should question his ability to be president.

Check out these new voter registration numbers. A lot of this credit goes to the Obama ground game - I think they have the best one out there, and are probably benefiting from the long primary fight and all the offices they were forced to open then. Bad news for the GOP in a number of states, some of the numbers are particularly stark.

if true, it's likely that, given his access to quality healthcare, the cancer was detected early. its impact may be limited.

hopefully it's not true.

See, I can play this petty, meaningless game, too.

I love how everything has to stray from the issues now. People question why I support Obama, and cannot believe it's just because I think he has better stances than McCain. I hate politics.

I dont see how you can criticize emotion in the same way as an inability to put 8 words together in a sentence if your teleprompter dies.

At least he tried to blame it on being tired and not acid reflux do a jig and run to his limo!

U2Fanatic4ever 09-06-2008 01:48 PM

what's the big f**kin deal that he messed up on a speech who cares! I couldn't care less if it were Obama or McCain, Palin or Biden. Why are people making a mountain out of a mole hill.:huh:

someone said they are preparing the way in case Obama is down by 5 points with 10 -14 days to go.


Would a new Dem. V P nominee shake up (boost) the Dem ticket,
like Palin did for the GOP?

U2Fanatic4ever 09-06-2008 02:11 PM

why hell are we speculating on something so far fetched as Biden having prostate cancer.. A friggin rumor for god's sake. That I haven't even heard of until I entered this thread..:shrug:


is there even a source/link to this possible rumor?

BVS 09-06-2008 02:13 PM

What?! Someone stumbled on their speech? Oh NOES!!!

People are reaching...

I can't wait till the debates.

Obama clock is back!

September 6, 2008


With less than 60 days left until Election Day, we're bringing back a Chicago Sun-Times Sunday feature that drew interest from around the country:



https://media1.suntimes.com/multimedi...0.imageContent
The Obama Clock.





Keep an eye on Obama this week and tell us where the hands should move for Sunday.

We're restarting the clock at 11:48. John McCain had a good but not great convention speech last week.

The credentials-challenged Sarah Palin knocked her speech out of the arena. A CBS news poll showed McCain and Barack Obama in a dead heat, with Obama down from an 8-point lead.

And a Rasmussen tracking poll showed Obama's lead shrinking from 5 points to 2.

How it works

At midnight, he's President Obama. At 11:45, he's a respectable senator. At 11:30, he's a has-been.
Obama clock is back! :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Barack Obama

U2Fanatic4ever 09-06-2008 02:15 PM

reaching... what a understatement that is.. I agree with ya... Is it so slow out there that the media has nothing else to talk about.. Oh wait, how about talking about the issues that the candidates are speaking of or should be talking about...

i consider myself pretty cynical, but i don't believe that either campaign would politicize a diagnosed case of cancer in that way. (when i said "its impact" in my previous post, i was referring to the cancer itself limiting biden's ability to perform his duties)

hopefully no one has cancer.

Where is this rumor posted?

If a similar rumor was floating about Palin and breast cancer, there would be people here outraged at how dare we spread such terrible rumors about her.

I looked into it

and concluded there's nothing to it

Just someone throwing little tidbits in

So some may think it's legit
