McCain: "Change Is Coming"

Sen. John McCain has accepted the Republican Party's presidential nomination, culminating a long primary season fight and setting the stage for battle with Democrat Barack Obama.

McCain appeared on the stage and told the cheering throng what
an honor it was to say yes to the party's call and noted that it
had been a rough campaign so far.

He said that President Bush has kept the country safe since the
2001 terror attacks. McCain also promised the crowd: "I will not
let you down."

McCain asked undecided voters "for the opportunity to earn your
trust. I intend to earn it."

His remarks were briefly interrupted by a protester, who was
drowned out by shouts of "U.S.A." McCain responded that Americans
are tired of people yelling at each other.

    Ha Ha. Like of all the changes he's made over the last amost 30 years in Washington.

    There are 2 kinds of change. Both tickets are talking change. McCain has always bucked the system and along with Palin will rock the house in Washington. The kind of change you will get from Obama/Biden is what will be left of your paycheck after taxes, CHANGE.

    To Proud Republican; You are not a Republican, or you couldn't possibly say anything so asinine. I think you are actually some sort of fecal agitator. I am sure you will be ignored for such foolishness.

    CHANGE? You Liberals want Change? Vote for Obama. Then your white butts will be more of a minority than you are now! We will be sitting in the back of the bus.

    Jess; I am glad you watched. Even though I don't agree with you, at least you are looking at both sides.

    One more thing I don't understand. How can McCain get up there and talk about change and the Washington Do Nothing Crowd when he has been a part of that crowd for amost 30 or so years????? There will be no change with him. Vote Obama for change.

    Ok VBush - I watched - your rule. Same old stuff over and over and over again. Nothing new. Never told me what he was going to do......I'll never vote for him.

    Great speech and great canidates. Bob, the liberals will still pound this board with the same old "more of Bush, Bush lied, Palin has no experience, they hate both canidates, they hate anybody who doesn't think like them. The point is "there is a new sherriff in town". I am sure the liberals will regroup and give us some other useless canidates for the next election. Too bad they don't get it.

    Mr. Bob; I hope Obama loses, but I wouldn't be too quick to write him off. I have no doubt he would make a bad President, but he didn't get to where he is by being stupid. I watched the first part of his interview series with O'Reilly last night, He didn't come across as the left wing nut job he is. It makes one wonder what he actually believes. The closer we get to the election, the more he moves to the center. He has a very chameleon type personality. His rise was supported by the far left, now that he has secured the nomination, he sounds more centrist with every speech and interview. This of course is driving the far left nuts, but it is also causing the fence sitters to keep looking at him. I personally feel he would be a disaster to our economy, but that said....I would not say he is finished just yet. I think his centrist type rhetoric is only done to secure votes and he is actually a leftist, but we will see how this all plays out. I am sure Sara Palin is changing his game plan

    We know McBush is a man that tried to talk the talk BUT we are 1000% sure he can't walk the walk. VBush, I never had to actually watched it or listen to soundbites to know what McBush is about. We all know he has the same agenda that has come into play for the past eight years. So please don't tell US we need to watch him to know him, we know him from way back. I said many times I know he was a POW but "HE GOT TO COME HOME" there is nothing heroic about being a POW you are POW because you have no choice.
