Thanks Dave. Sometimes I have to walk back to get my lunch. Even though I sat it next to my purse to take with me. I don't know where my mind be at.

Bella - There are many days that I feel if I wasn't already at home, I'd never find where I live...

Everyone forgets sometimes. I swear I put something somewhere in the house. I get so frustrated and I find it later on when I return home. And then I think, did I look there - as grandpa always said "If it was a snake it would have bit me"

That is fine that you like McCain's position on the abortion issue, but it doesn't change the fact that many women have the wrong idea about where McCain actually stands on the matter. 50% is a huge number!McCain hasn't been fully vetted, and hopefully the media starts looking at his policies and staff a little more closely.

Stephley, I already said I'm pro-choice. I don't believe, however, in oversimplifying decisions. And I *do* believe in being fully informed. If Rosa Parks had decided later in life that her youthful actions and tactics were inappropriate and ill-advised, that would be worth knowing. It would not necessarily change my mind about the social changes that resulted.

I knew Norma McCorvey's history and it doesn't change my pro-choice view - that's a bit like suggesting your support of civil rights rests on your belief in Rosa Parks.

Nice comment, KJerabek! I wanted to re-check my memory of his stance, so I popped over to his web site. Here's how that section reads: "Human Dignity and the Sanctity of Life "Overturning Roe v. Wade" John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned, and as president he will nominate judges who understand that courts should not be in the business of legislating from the bench. "Constitutional balance would be restored by the reversal of Roe v. Wade, returning the abortion question to the individual states. The difficult issue of abortion should not be decided by judicial fiat." And then it goes on about how a compassionate society should support the needs of pregnant mothers and their children, and the promotion of adoption. I've said elsewhere that I'm pro-choice but not pro-abortion. I wonder how many people realize that Norma McCorvey lied to get that abortion in 1973. And that she sued in 2003 to have the decision overturned.

"For example, a recent survey showed that 50% of females that support McCain though (mistakenly) that he was pro-choice" He is for abortion in cases of rape, incest, or chances of harm for the mother. I am happen to like this about him. I consider myself a feminist, but Susan B Anthony feminist. The first woman's movement was against abortion, because they were for equal rights of all people. Susan B Anthony called it "child murder" but personally I think Stanton wrote it best... "When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading for women to treat their children as property, to be disposed of as they see fit."

I think that most people just know the titles given to McCain, "Maverick" and "moderate", and that is about it. For example, a recent survey showed that 50% of females that support McCain though (mistakenly) that he was pro-choice. Many of the people in his staff have very questionable backgrounds. He has people that started groups to encourage war with Iraq back in 2002 on his foreign policy staff (Committee for the Liberation of Iraq), lobbiests and staffers that worked for Saudi Arabia, China, and Iran, etc. (Which contradicts McCain's proposal for divestment from Iran). In fact, Charlie Black, McCain's chief strategist, was paid $60,000 to lobby the US government on behalf of the Chinese oil conglomerate CNOOC. That same company has a $16 BILLION dollar deal with Iranian government. Black's firm also represented a man named Ahmad Chalabi, who was an Iraqi dissident and pushed for the invasion of Iraq with key Pentagon and Administration officials before the war began. Since then he has supposedly passed on US information about Iraq to Iran. Obama's distant acquaintances have been gone over with a fine toothed comb. McCain's STAFF hasn't been given as much disection, much less his policy ideas. And I am sorry, but if you think that a magazine cover alone indicates support you are wrong. Not all news stories about him are positive. Fox News is clearly biased against Obama in a way that very heavy handed and very obvious. I once saw them entertain a guest who was a preacher, saying that Obama "wasn't pure" because his "jezzabelle" mother violated his "pure" father. Does that sound like bias in Obama's favor??? Obama has given LOADS of details in his speeches over the past 6 months about his policy ideas...but for some reason that media that supposedly bias in his favor fails to mention it. The media is bias for drama, not for factual information about EITHER candidate.

From the current American Journalism Review:But each claim about "the media" isn't really clear-cut. Were they too tough on Hillary? Maybe at times. But didn't Clinton's campaign benefit enormously from its early press clippings, too? Her coverage during much of 2007 made her nomination sound inevitable, which helped her attract contributions, endorsements and key advisers. Didn't she also lose 11 straight primaries to Obama, a track record that would have made another candidate a media laughingstock? In love with Obama? Maybe, but only if you don't count relatively early stories about his past drug use (New York Times), reports about false rumors of his "secret" Muslim upbringing (Washington Post) and unflattering stories about his association with a shadowy Chicago fundraiser named Tony Rezko (Chicago Tribune). All of these appeared before the cable-fed eruption over Obama's ties to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his "bitter" comments before the Pennsylvania primary and the flap about his brief association with '60s radicals William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Too easy on McCain? Surely in some instances, but the claim ignores several major caveats, such as the widespread reporting on the disarray and near-bankruptcy of his campaign last summer, when his candidacy was virtually declared dead; the stories about his gaffes (confusing Sunni and Shiite factions in Iraq, for example); and the fact that McCain's long presence on the national scene has made him one of the best-known and most-covered figures in politics. It also fails to recognize the effect of timing on campaign coverage. McCain clinched his party's nomination in early March, which shifted the media spotlight from the GOP race to the Democratic battle. In other words, there's still time. As Newsweek's Evan Thomas wrote in early March, "Right now, Obama and John McCain are popular with reporters. But if the usual laws of press physics apply, the media will turn on both men before Election Day."

*Jillness, McCain has been around so long, I highly doubt much ew information can be dug up on him. But I mean who knows anything about this Obama guy, the most junior member of the senate.The media IS backing Obama. Which makes sense since more than 5 times more reporters and broadcasters describe them self as liberal than conservative.How many magazine covers has Obama been on the cover of in the last 6 months? Now how about McCain?

What about that Google article? I think Google is amazing. But it has had a huge impact on the way students do research. The article points out that many do not read a full article or book, but rather "skip around" from source to source.

McCain's handlers are gonna be all over him, and yet I think the mistakes will keep on coming.

Obama had the heat turned up because he was in a battle for the nomination. The republican candidates fell in line behind McCain so quickly no one had the chance to turn up the heat. IMO, the next month will see an all out blitz on McCain and Obama will get a bit of a pass (unless he makes a huge blunder).

I hope the heat turns up on McCain. The heat was turned up on Obama long before he even had the nomination, when he was only one of 2 candidates. McCain has had the nomination for months now, and no digging has been done.
UnDave35 UnDave35 8 years
He hasn't been scrutinied yet, because it would do no good. They didn't have anyone to compare him to. Now that Obama is the presumptive DNC nominee, I see the heat being turned up on McCain.

If Obama had lobbiests on his team that had been employed by Chinese companies to broker agreements with Iran, I think that Obama would be treated MUCH differently. You don't hear tons of positive things about McCain, but the lack of scrutiny of him is sooooo apparent.
