    Or maybe McCain the next time someone asks him how many houses he owns.

    I think a lot of people are too willing to simplify the players in this election (every election?) into caricatures and stereotypes.

    McCain = Boring old Bush wanna-be.
    Obama = anti-American, potential socialist.
    Palin = radical Christian, inexperienced
    Biden = who?


    I think a lot of voters really do care about where the candidates stand on the issues, but we let ourselves get sidetracked by whatever new scandal or attack ad comes out every other day.

    McCain wasn't my first, second, or even third choice, and I'm still not really super-stoked about voting for him. He's got a demonstrated history of voting for or creating legislation that I find absolutely abhorrent. Since he's been running for President, he's been saying the right things, but is that enough to counter what he's actually done? I don't know yet.

    Obama, on the other hand, rarely says or does anything that I agree with. His big selling points seem to be "McCain is just like Bush!" and "tax cuts for the middle class". It might be enough to win, but I don't know if those tax cuts are really practical. My understanding is that the lower half of wage earners in the US only pay 3% or less of the total Income Tax revenue. How much higher can Obama shift the burden? At some point, increasing the taxes on the rich amounts to nothing more than punishing them for being successful. I don't want the government to play Robin Hood on my belhalf.

    Some of Palin's views I disagree with as well, but I think that she will achieve some degree of moderation throughout her stint as VP, and she could end up being a real positive force for the Republican Party.

    A lot of people have said they would vote for Ron Paul, and he was actually my first pick as well. But he has pretty much diisappeared from the race, and is focusing on getting more third-party candidates elected in local and state races, which is the wise way to do things.

    In the meantime, my realistic choices for President include Obama and McCain. As I said I'm not super excited about McCain, but I am fairly confident that his appointments to the SCOTUS won't be terrible, whereas Obama's almost certainly will. After recent rulings like Kelo and Heller, that's enough to push me over to McCain for now.

That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."

    If I don't know how many rental homes my wife's corporation owns, then I probably don't know her as well as I should.

    I will have to say if the best Obama can do is attack McCane on how many houses he has then he is in trouble. If that would be a reason for not being president the most of the buracrats on both sides of the isle should not be president.

    Obama was not the one who asked McCain how many homes he owns. When McCain couldn't answer, then naturally, Obama jumped on it. After all, anyone who isn't able to answer a question like that, to me, has something to hide. What does he have to be ashamed of?

    All that stuff aside, I seriously doubt that the house gaffe will do McCain any serious long term harm in the polls, nor will it help Obama. Yes, the rich tend to be demonized by the have nots and the liberal media, but the average voter does not consider how many houses the candidates own when deciding who to vote for.

    Obama used illicit substances

    Looks like Sen. Obama was a recreational drug user. The Blurry edges of Obama's memory: what the senator's pot smoking should have taught him about drug policy | Reason | Find Articles at BNET

    "Obama recalls smoking pot and snorting cocaine in high school and college; he says he even considered heroin before fear dissuaded him."

    I'm glad that he's able to openly admit it, unlike the guy who was President a couple terms before our current President.

    So what if he did drugs? I honestly don't see what the federal government has to gain by telling people what drugs they can or cannot take. As long as crackheads, alcoholics, or other drug users don't commit crimes to support their habits, what do I care. True, it's illegal, but society benefits none by locking up someone who uses these substances on their own without breaking the law to support the habit, and because it's illegal, anyone who admits to being a current or former user forever has a stigma attached to therm for it.
