These things are getting out of hand. From the local congress seats to judge elections to the president election. Im sick of hearing them. I want to see ads that tell me what they as a candidate want to do not things that their opponant may or may not have done that is bad. I think a lot of the attack ads are lies or stretches of the truth.

Dude, you can't go and bitch about the vicious attack ads while also calling anyone who supports Obama a Moron, and telling anyone who calls you out on it to "eat a dick."

Also in the last month McCain has been 100% negative, and Obama has been about 30% negative. This is a statistic I heard on NPR. If you care about who has been more negative, and want to vote for the person with more positive adds talking about policies rather than insulting thier opponent then vote for Obama!

Here is the dirtiest that I've ever seen:

The Republicans sponsored this one against a man that is running against the world famous Sheriff Joe Arpiao. The ad says that he mislead law enforcement on allegations of rape, exposed himself to a child and masturbated on county time. The irony is that his supposed misleading of rape allegations was when he was a victim of sexually abuse.

Definitely a new low for the Arizona Republican party.

I'm a Republican, but I think some of McCain's ads have definitely "crossed the line". Especially one that referred to Obama's "blind ambition" a few times. Critiques of the opponent's psychology are not fair game in political ads.

It's gotten so bad that McCain and his campaign have called Obama every name in the book over the past 2 weeks. Even though no sane American would believe a word of it....Calling Obama a "Racist, Marxist, Socialist, Muslim, Terrorist" just makes people say "Do they really expect anyone to believe this crap" and makes the McCain campaign look bad.

marcsmall, i completely agree with doing away with all the name calling. however, u added socialism into the category of crap when referring to obama. i have always considered myself liberal but after debating with myself for a long time i am voting for mccain in this election because the fact is, many of obama's policies certainly cross the line into socialism. looking at his economic reforms and drastic changes into universal healthcare. i don't see how you can ignore this. yes, there are far too many politicians, drug companies, lobbyists, etc. that have taken advantage of our current system for their own monetary gain, but there is a reason the U.S. has the best doctors in the world and why even those who come from countries with free universal healthcare come to the U.S. for medical care if they can afford it. Socialism, even to the smallest degree, lowers standards. please give me your opinion on how obama's tax plan, healthcare, or other economic policies are completely unsocialist.

obama has already won this election. no doubt about it. all we can do is see how the next four years pan out and start implementing real change by voting in Barr, Paul/Romney or even Nader 2012. these are men of actual integrity, who will run for the betterment of our nation. it really sickens me when people say, "vote for obama, we need change" because he will most certainly not. change needs to come from replacing all the men with special interests in congress, (probably 99%) with people who have a backbone about the issues. also there needs to be a president wants to take care of the people by ensuring safety and well-being instead of invading in our personal lives and taking away most of granted freedoms.
