    More Hope and Change for Missouri...
    St. Louis and Missouri Democrat sheriffs and top prosecutors are planning to go after anyone who makes false statements against Obama during his campaign. This is so one sided I can't even begin to describe how wrong this agenda is.

    It's one thing if they want to keep the campaign fair for both sides, but they clearly only want to enforce the issue for the Obama Camp.

    Gateway Pundit: Missouri Sheriffs & Top Prosecutors Form Obama "Truth Squads" & Threaten Libel Charges Against Obama Critics


    I'll start first missouri...Obama is a socialist, racest tax hungry pig and he probably cheated on his wife.

    I don't see anything wrong with it, anything that helps prevent more mindless idiotic Americans from being hypnotized by the repubs SMEARS, LIES, and SPIN is a good thing.

    For example, threads like this that distract from the real issues by sidetracking with often erroneous, imbalanced stories.

    It's about time. Some of the lies people tell are simply salacious. Do you realize how many old people actually think Obama is a Muslim extremist? Or how many people have called him a terrorist?

    If people aren't going to be responsible, they should be put into check - and yes, it cuts BOTH ways.

    That's the beauty of it. We don't even have to resort to that, Mccain is fucking his campaign up so much that we don't have to bother resorting to the same pitiful ass tactics being used against Obama.

    check out the ideological slant of the posters who favor the tactic

    as I've been saying for years, the greatest threat to America, and American ideals is from the liberals

    Mayhaps you missed the fact that Obama's campaign has not made any untruthful statements about McCain or Palin?
    Whereas the republican campaign has been like a LIE factory?

    Compare liberals to conservatives...

    Which group has tried to ban more books?
    Which group has tried to influence government with their religious beliefs?
    Which group has tried to interfere with personal rights, from a woman's right for a medical procedure to a husband wanting to disconnect his wife from a feeding tube?
    Which group wants the right to legislate what goes on in your bedroom?
    Which group wants to legislate the Constitutional definition of marriage?
    etc
    etc

    Could any of us imagine what it would be like if Political Candidates/campaigns were forced to eliminate lies and fabrications from their advertising?

    If you live in a "swing state" right now you are being hit like a ship sitting in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. New Mexico has been beyond horrible and the smears are at all levels.

    To me holding a political campaign responsible for what is says would be so wonderful that it could bring about true political reform in this country.

    There is no circumstance where out and out lies and smears are acceptable against any candidate and it does not matter what political party or candidates campaign starts them.

    What this does is to completely cloud and or eliminate the issues we as voters need to hear about.

    This is of course the entire idea of the smear tactics to begin with.

    I watched a debate tonight.....What I saw offered no surprises. Both McCain and Obama did very well. There was no clear cut winner and no clear cut loser. They both made valid points for their own side. If I were to judge anything at all it would be that Obama's probably gained more than McCain did. Anyone who was undecided and thought that Obama had no experience did not see that. What they saw or at least were led to believe was that both were competent men. Personally, I wonder how the Palin / Biden debate is going to go.

    Biden is definitely very experienced in situations like this. I am wondering now if they are going to be able to coach Palin to not detonate or appear to be a "problem child".

    Remember guys, everybody knows what is going to be asked beforehand and they have plenty of time to have answers before they are ever seen on the television. If the candidates had absolutely zero idea of what was going to be asked, it could get more interesting.

    I think the most interesting thing was how both candidates cleverly glossed over the 700 billion dollar bail-out when those areas were covered. Both men did an excellent job of diverting questions back to questions where they had more control and more information.

    There are more debates. I hope that something more interesting emerges in the next one.

    Slander? Denigration? Lies? You be the judge. I can see why Obama peeps are getting a little fed up. Here's a snippet:

    The only crimes I see are the contributions made to the site. That quote is classic libel.

    outstanding idea!

    why not Obama?

    Stalin had his, as did Hitler, Mao Tse Tung, Fidel Castro, et al

    (and, of course, they tell what is truth, what is slander)

    I am really tired of the wrong wing hijacking words and twisting their meaning. The fact is if it weren't for "liberals" nothing would ever have gotten done in this country. Do you think the 13 colonies were set up by men who thought conservatively? The conservative thinkers stayed in Britain, quietly paying their taxes, bank rolling the monarchy.

    Why even bother with these knuckle draggers? The comment would be laughable if America wasn't literally coming apart at the seams thanks to years of mismanagement by the Republicans.

    CLEARY it's the LIBERALS who are destroying America. I suppose he thinks things have just been going swimmingly over the past 8 years. Clearly, just like all of the failed Republican policies, he is wrong because only 20% of people think the US is on the right track.

    NEW YORK, April 4: More than 80 per cent of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction, a CBS News-New York Times poll released on Friday revealed.

    The poll was first conducted in the early 1990s. Since then the Americans’ opinion regarding the nation’s situation hasn’t been as bad as it is now.

    Here in Washington state, the Supreme Court of Washington has ruled that it is ok to lie in a political ad.
