“I want everyone to be respectful. And let’s make sure we are, because that’s the way politics is done in America.”

Tells one supporter who says he’s scared of an Obama presidency: “I have to tell you, he is a decent person, a person that you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States.”

McCain was tougher on Romney in the primary than he is on Obama.

Sad and pathetic.

McCain lets the MSM intimidate him everytime.

We will have to win this in spite of him.

The media have trapped McCain. They send in stooges to yell epitaths against bho with cameras waiting to make it national. He has to put out these fires with grace or face the manufactured outrage.

I saw the report on Fox News a little while ago. I didn’t hear the part about the “Arab”, but I did see the part about him “making nice”.

Agreed. Any one who expects Yosemite McSam to be a Republican partisan is setting themselves up to be disappointed.

“I have to tell you, he is a decent person, a person that you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States.”

Obama: "So, you're saying I'm not risky, like your earlier ad of today said."

I was called "silly" and "absurd" by another poster today for saying that it looks like McCain would rather lose the nation than win the election. With every passing moment, I see it as more and more a realistic assessment.

McCain is an ass!

It's up to us to drag him kicking and screaming across the finish line.

Then it'll be up to us to keep him from screwing up, but Gov. Palin will help in that respect too.

McCain just can not believe that Obama is the kind of man Obama really is.

McCain can't believe that the US would make such a man its President.

So he soft peddles the enormity of Obama’s radical ties and allies, his corruption, his storm trooper tactics.

Many Americans can clearly see Obama for what he is. Tragically, the Republican candidate for President can not.
