"Where's the plan Obama"? "Nice speech but where are the details"? "You can talk but it's all empty of substance"?

Wouldn't you feel foolish if you had posted something like that and there were details just One click away?

I know I would. I'll be even more distrustful of the person who echos that theme tomorrow.

And yes, the website has been up for weeks. Especially fun for details is the smear campaign information.

And this discussion of abortion legislation and voting in Indiana offers some insight into how partially complete information can be used.

Anyway, on a website that promotes due diligence and all that, it seems that there is a severe lack of it on this subject.

I'd also be doubtful if someone says that Obama is the mother of Mccains black baby 3 weeks before the election.

I think i'm going to make a macro phrase and just paste it:

Winning elections is about marketing, sales, and to a certain extent mass-seduction, and almost nothing to do with policies.  If you can't see that, you are one of the people being blinded by the mass marketing that has made up your mind for you.  Obama is smart and knows this - which is why he doesn't talk about policies.  He is doing everything he can to charm the American public into voting for him - hondo and lordz ask "are obama supporters all this stupid?"

I would say yes, and so are all the mccain supporters.  The overwhelming majority of voters are totally stupid.  Many of them are closed-door racists and would not ever vote for a person of African descent.  On the other side, many abhor "tumorface" as mccain has been called by some people i know.

So get a life, stop blabbing about it, it's just a big ad campaign, someone will win, someone will lose, the sun will come up, the only difference is if obama wins, you buy infrastructure, tech, and biotech, and if mccain wins, you keep buying energy and oil/nat gas.

No.

If Bush wins you get war for oil in Iraq. If Gore wins you get renewable energy. Its more than just marketing.

There are differences beyond what stock you buy, as Devoish points out.

But I agree, there is a huge amount of marketing here. Many studies show that people vote based on how they feel about a candidate. Very, very few voters are interested in going through tax policy or budgeting for social programs with a fine-tooth comb. And that is a bi-partisan trait. Americans may be a lot of things, but policy wonks they are not.

Heck, less than half the population even votes,
