>Why do you presume he is weak-minded and easily influenced by these people? Why not consider he is strong-minded and may influence them for the better?

There is no evidence that he has ever challenged the views of his venomous preacher or hateful Ayers.

If McCain sat on a Board for five years, with a former member of the KKK who brags that his ideology hasn't changed one bit, and McCain provided funding for his Educational Programs, I wouldn't vote for him, even if he denied that he knew him well or the relationship was characterized as tenuous. Only one association like that would be enough for me to disqualify him.

If you did any real research, you'd discover that our economic crisis was caused secondarily by the excesses of Wall Street, but that those excesses were instigated by the primary, the root cause, which was the foolish programs of Obama and his likes in Congress. Further empowering him and this group is going to bring all manner of ruin.

But never mind, what's important, after all, is pronunciation.

Would you choose your babysitter this way?

Know what? You 're such a really, really nice trusting guy.
