1. John McCain voted against establishing a national holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Now he says his position has "evolved," yet he's continued to oppose key civil rights laws.

2. According to Bloomberg News, McCain is more hawkish than Bush on Iraq, Russia and China. Conservative columnist Pat Buchanan says McCain "will make Cheney look like Gandhi."

3. His reputation is built on his opposition to torture, but McCain voted against a bill to ban waterboarding, and then applauded President Bush for vetoing that ban.

4. McCain opposes a woman's right to choose. He said, "I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned."

5. The Children's Defense Fund rated McCain as the worst senator in Congress for children. He voted against the children's health care bill last year, then defended Bush's veto of the bill.

6. He's one of the richest people in a Senate filled with millionaires. The Associated Press reports he and his wife own at least eight homes! Yet McCain says the solution to the housing crisis is for people facing foreclosure to get a "second job" and skip their vacations.

7. Many of McCain's fellow Republican senators say he's too reckless to be commander in chief. One Republican senator said: "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He's erratic. He's hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."

8. McCain talks a lot about taking on special interests, but his campaign manager and top advisers are actually lobbyists. The government watchdog group Public Citizen says McCain has 59 lobbyists raising money for his campaign, more than any of the other presidential candidates.

9. McCain has sought closer ties to the extreme religious right in recent years. The pastor McCain calls his "spiritual guide," Rod Parsley, believes America's founding mission is to destroy Islam, which he calls a "false religion." McCain sought the political support of right-wing preacher John Hagee, who believes Hurricane Katrina was God's punishment for gay rights and called the Catholic Church "the Antichrist" and a "false cult."

10. He positions himself as pro-environment, but he scored a 0 yes, zero from the League of Conservation Voters last year.

1. I know John McCain will hold his hand over the pledge of allegiance.

2. I know John McCain will wear a U.S. Flag lapel pin.

3I know John McCain is without a doubt a veteran of the Armed Forces.

If you must vote for a black man vote for Alan Keyes. But at this point it would just be taking votes away from McCain. cut it anyway you want it and Barack Obama is not truly identifiablre withe black population that holds him in such high regard. In the muslim religion if your father is a muslim you are a Muslim. Simple as that. Its disrespectful not to follow your Fathers religious beliefs.

Your knowledge of Islam is obviously very extensive, so I will be very careful.

First off, the Pledge of Allegiance does not equal the star spangled banner. Secondly, wearing or not wearing a pin does not prove patriotism. And finally, the article did not challenge that McCain was not a veteran.

It's not about voting for a man based on his color, it's about voting for the best man for the job.

At least site your sources. Your post is a cut and paste from MoveOn.org. You should have cited it.

I got it in an email, not from the website. I googled it to verify it's origin to moveon a liberal website, it's not like you haven't posted right wingy crap before.

You really didn't answer him at all. First you just resorted to an ad hominem attack, then you just posted stuff against Obama, not refuting anything said about McCain.
