    what do you think they'd camp in? I've been thinking about this one a lot lately.

    Obama - he's an Airstream guy. I can just picture him coming out the door early in the morning with a steaming cup of coffee, waving like he's getting off a campaign bus. He just wouldn't know how to dress for camping - probably wearing snazzy pants with a crease and Italian shoes and a sweater around his shoulders like some yuppy.

    McCain - he would have an old pop up, like an old Coleman. This guy could dress the part - plaid shirt, blue jeans, but Lugz boots, not Crocs like Pete would wear. The kicker - in the next site would be the Prevost he and his wife really sleep in.

    Nader - the perpetual Green Party candidate. He would be in an old tent, but it would have to be made of hemp. He would arrive in an old Chevy station wagon, or maybe a Corvair (not!). Ralph doesn't have to worry about what to wear - his normal, unkempt look fits in anywhere in the woods.

    To be sure,,,none of them would camp in my Itasca or your Kiwi. Why??? Cause we're both smart enough not to invite any of them in!!:lmao:

    Where is Richard Nixon when you need him???

    can't we take all of them, shove them into a popup, close the popup, and send them to siberia?

    that would work for me...

    Obama would have to have someone there to hook up and drive for him. I met the guy while I was working, shook his hand and all. The guy's hand was so limp and soft. I did not detect a muscle anywhere in it. I know the guy shakes hands all the time so he wouldnt be lookin to give a firm shake but come on at least let me know your a man!!! :rolleyes:
    Just by shaking his hand I would say he has never worked a day in his life. I felt all icky after it too. :sick:

    Not only are there no muscles in his handshake, there's no backbone in his spine.

    You're right...I'm sorry I couldn't help myself...and by the way, I own an Airstream and resemble ftwildernessguy's description too much, except I have a firm handshake and I'm a died in the wool Republican with a picture of Ronald Regan over my bed. But I guess you could tell.:rolleyes:

    I say we put all in an over-formaldehyded fema trailer, lock the door from the outside and board the windows(Yeah, right...a fema trailer with windows??) and push it down a steep hill, pump a couple of .22s into the tires as it rolls away and take bets on who's the first to talk his way out of it before it rams into a gas station pump filled with $4/gal gas and bursts into flames.

    I like that one Rog!!! Very creative, very well thought out. :lmao::lmao:

    My questions is, are these 2 jokers the best this country has to offer? Come on people, give me someone I want to vote for, not just "have" to vote for, because I like the other less!

    I think Oprah,,I mean Obama,,would have a camper that would resemble a sardine can,,but it wouldn't be made in America,,and it wouldn't have any labels on it at all. And it certainly wouldn't be sport'n an American flag.





    Still work'n on a camper for the old guy.

    Sadly this is how I feel too. I see bumper stickers every day that say "Anyone but ....." and yet very very few "Vote for ....." Sad sad

    It's going to be a long 8 years. I give McCain a little pass, he was kept in a cage for 5 years or whatever. Frankly, I don't see why being a Senator gives you the right to run for President. It's not like you actually run anything as a Senator, you sit and vote.

    Maybe after India and Vietnam take all our IT jobs, they'll outsource the President there.

    And it's only my opinion, but I think people should certainly have more senate experience than just 143 days to run for pres.

    Personally, I like someone that isn't mucked in Washington. Not that I necessarily would vote for Obama (still undecided), but haven't people for years been complaining about how "inside Washington" most politicians are now a days? I have to admit it's kind of nice to see someone from "outside" Washington get the chance.

    Then again, most Presidents don't make decisions anyways, their advisors do. The question isn't how much experience Obama has, it's how much his advisors would have ;)
