My wife and I have been watching television in the evening and we have both become sick of the political ads. Thank God the ads stop today, and now we have to deal with the scum that get elected to office. God Bless the USA

Some might not feel that their party is scum. Is it the election process you disdain or all politicians in general?

I agree with you. I am tired of it all too. Who wants to see that crap on tv 24 7 and who wants to get the flippen phone call ads either all the time.

While I may disdain certain politicians and many things politicans do, I must say that I am glad I live in a country, despite its flaws, that allows me to vote or to run for office.

I thank my Father, My Uncles, My Husband and all the soldiers who have fought and sacrificed to make sure this freedom was available to us.

I hope that you, Paramedic268, are at least grateful to those who sacrificed to allow us the freedom to turn off the TV or hang up the phone if the ads annoy us. I'm assuming you are so young that you can't remember that we might have been flying a swastika and saying "Heil Hitler" had it not been for heroes who preserved our freedoms.

I am going to miss the ad that made Alice Kryzan look like the grinch... I laughed every time. The only thing they could have done to make her look meaner would have been to photo shop her kicking a puppy...

Oh, heck, I thought the goose-stepping soldiers were chilling, with that bland face overlaying them, looking like a young nazi. That had to be the dirtiest campaign from both sides.

Great attitude! So did you vote for scum today? Or did you vote today to keep scum out of office? If you voted to keep the scum out of office, glad to see you are hopeful your vote will count. ;\)

Too bad the US Military mail system sucks so bad that most of the people fighting to maintain our freedom to vote can't vote themselves. CNN was reporting today that a lot of soldiers hadn't even received their absentee ballots yet. Shame...

No, because then we'll have to hear about the inaugeration. Decorations, how much everything costs, who's the entertainment, who got invited, what everyone's wearing, blah, blah, blah

Neither of the canidates can do what they promise, they have spent 100's of millions of dollars to get our vote.

Yes I did vote, and I am grateful for that right. Oh by the way I did serve 9 years USAF.

There is not one politician running today that gives a damn about the middle class citizen. Thank God it is over for another 3 years

If the campaigning starts as early as it did this election, it will only be about 27 months, before the next "primary feelers" start coming out in force. (obama announced he was running 21 months ago)

here's a simple solution to those who are sick of it:

change the channel or, better yet- TURN OFF THE TV AND DO SOMETHING ELSE-

works every time...

As Barack Obama noted, he will be your president, too.

Care to elaborate on your opinion on that instead of just sharing 1 negative sentence?

I personally do not believe Obama is the right choice for president. I do not agree with his economics, I am worried that the troops overseas are going to get hurt, and in typical style, he will ensure the social programs are funded to the maximum. JMHO...p.s. I really did not agree with Mccaine all the way either, we are really in trouble and there is no one that is a politician able to help us out right now...It will be a long four years

You are not the first the first I have talked to who does not like his economic plan... I don't understand.... Do you make over $250,000 per year? Are you planning to in the next 4 years? If not what is the problem? You will be taxed less? "social services" who cares... Unless it is just pig headed thinking thinking, if I work so should they, why do you care? You are going to be taxed less under Obama's plan, so why do you care if if more money goes to social services? God forbid you loose your job, Don't you feel comfortable knowing if that happens you can collect social services so you don't loose everything? It's not like decent jobs grow on trees in Upstate NY... Not saying I agree with everything in the economic plan, but I feel it is better for the average working American...
