Did McCain lose your vote....

96 posts in this topic

For me, the answer is: absolutely

I can't even fathom Palin and her family in Washington, let alone running the country if that should ever come to pass...

I vote Republican about 1/2 the time, Dem the other 1/2....I was set to vote for McCain, but was waiting to see how he would round out his ticket...NOT.

No one in my house is voting for McCain. Palin you say, well I'm from Texas, so I can smell White Trash a mile off, even if it is from Alaska.

McCain was already along the path to losing my vote before he picked Palin. Her inclusion sealed the deal for me.

Actually Palin and her fresh look on thing helped seal the deal for me and vote for McCain. McCain is to liberal for me as I am conservative and Palin shares many views I do.

I wouldn't have voted for McCain anyway. I usually always vote Democratic, I just can't bring myself to support the Republicans.

I didn't plan on voting for John McCain... once Palin first opened her mouth, I knew which way my vote was going.

Seriously, guys... imagine her as President after having alienated the party and the campaign...

McCain started faltering before Palin, but if he had picked a halfway competent VP I would have considered him at least. I don't think he was that bad of a guy, but he totally lost it the last month. I've already voted early for Obama, so yes his choice of VP sealed the deal for me.

No, I will be voting McCain/Palin for sure.

I put myself as a independant and look at each candidate equally. The more I hear about Obama, the less I want him in office. He is just too far left. Yeah, he's a good talker, too bad 80% of his promises, he will have no control over if elected. Congress makes the laws. Our economy was good until 2 years ago... Dems ruled congress starting in '06. Bush warned of the housing situation back in '03, was overturned by Dems. McCain again warned in '05 (both tried to do something about it and both were shot down). Regardless, overall it was fault of both parties. Also I cannot see any good out of a Obama/Pelosi/Reed/Frank tie in. That will not be good. And while Obama is a good talker, I have yet to see anything that proves he has more or better experience than Palin. Now with Biden, I don't trust him with anything. He has went from saying many things bad about Obama including that he is not experienced enough in the primaries to now saying the opposite of course since he is picked as VP.

Back to Palin, she is really getting the blunt end of the stick from the media. They are pulling out all stops on the most rediculous stories about Palin to bring her down, yet would they dare do what to the Obama campaign? I have never seen so much biasness before, it's insane.

McCain and Palin both have and believe in good values, and values I fully agree with. I know not everyone agree's with em, and that's the great thing about this nation, that we are able to pick and choose who we want.

I hope everyone will look through all the mumbo jumbo, read between the lines, do research about each candidate and make a honest non biased pick, then vote in that matter and of the better of the nation in the long run as a whole, and not on one's personal agendas.

Not to get into any type of pissing match, but why can you not bring yourself to do so??? I can't just always vote for one party, because that party does not always have the best candidate. That's the biggest problem with a 2 party system. It causes people to vote for a person despite differences of opinions.

Cheers! For something this important, I wish more people would be more open minded and put more focus and thought in their votes.... don't get me wrong, a lot do put effort into it, but there's still a lot out there that don't, or just don't care.

I just can't support the conservatives... they don't represent me or my reality. If the Republicans had a more moderate, centrist candidate, I could certainly consider them, but I can't support the far right social conservatives.

Until I hear her say anything either intelligent or non-scripted that gives the impression that she indeed COULD lead this country should the need arise, ....

No, he didn't lose my vote when he picked Governor Palin. And some of you can puzzle all day about why a guy like me would go this way, and all I have to say in response is... it's Country First. Not Ocn First.

I dislike them both to be honest. I wish for once, I could be enthused about the choices I have, but I'm not. In looking back, I think the choice of Palin will be seen as a big mistake but I think mainly McCain did himself in with the type of campaign he chose to run.

I'm including this link to an article about McCain that was in the October issue of Rolling Stone magazine. I take most everything I read about people with a grain of salt because I never know how much is true without embellishment by the writer but this all seems pretty legit to me and it's not a pretty picture. f you haven't read it, it's worth your time.

Could you imagine blacks in 1964 voting for Byrd?

Had the McCain of 2000 been running this would have been a difficult decision for me. The disrespectful, mudslinging, and incoherence McCain has run his campaign with not only cost him my potential vote but also the respect I had for the man. Pandering to the neo-con right wing with Palin when I KNOW he doesn't believe most of the thing she is spouting adds hypocrisy and dishonesty to the list.

He had his chance.... he blew it.

McCain lost my vote because he stopped being the McCain of 2000 and embraced the Bush tax cuts and the Iraq War. I wouldn't vote for him even if he had picked Tom Ridge as his running mate.

This is where I can say Obama's poor choices in the recent past aling with compulsive lies and accepting untracable donations, (I could go on) is where he blew it to me. Now on top of that he may not even have been born in the US.... one of the stipulations of being president of the US. A Dem even put a lawsuit out on the DNC about it and said he'd drop if it they just show the paperwork. Whether or not he really was born in the US, there is deffinatly something being hidden here.

Fact check first. Post second.
