McCain In NC Friday, Obama On Sunday

Both presidential candidates will North Carolina by the end of the weekend as the race to the White House continues.

Republican Sen. John McCain is visiting Charlotte Friday morning. Recent polls show Democrat Barack Obama has eliminated the GOP advantage in North Carolina, which hasn't been won by a Democrat since Jimmy Carter in 1976.

Obama is planning a rally in North Carolina on Sunday. It will be at the Crown Coliseum in Faytetteville and will begin at 1:30 p.m. Obama has visited North Carolina several times since the primary in May.

    I am thrilled that Obama comes out ahead, he will lead our country out of the mess it is in. The ignorant that support the GOP will be crying in November.

    Sorry Libs: Your candidate has reached a historic low - smearing a common citizen Obama walks into Joe's yard. Joe asks him question. Obama grants the lowly Joe the gift of his marvelous words..."spread the wealth" .....woops. So this "bad answer" by "the one" is Joe's fault???? Joe must now be smeared. Is this Messiah a candidate for the US President or is this Vladimir Putin or Chairman Mao? I cannot believe that the electorate will stand for this absolutely gestapo tactics of destroying an innocent citizen for asking a question.

    It is a shame we cant just turn the clock back 50 years to a time when America was strong and we didnt have to have such BS as this.

    Obama, what wealth are you going to spread around? Stock market down, no wealth there, housing down, no wealth there, gas and food up, no wealth in Americans pockets. We need someone to help create wealth like lowering taxes and encouraging new business. Vote McCain

    Liberals have ruined this country, moral values have ceased to exist amongst the people.

    The Democrat Liberals are on the run. I saw one today hiding under a rock. I saw another digging as deep hole in the sand. I think they are going underground. They must have gotten a copy of Barack Obama's life story. Maybe some really got the facts. I know Dems get crankey when they are confronted with the truth. I still think anybody who votes for Obama is an E.T.

    I think that momentum just swung right according to the polls....
