The test is biased against Obama. The questions require you to think about your positions.
Funny, but the conservatives on Wall Street are saying just the opposite.

It's very easy to produce whatever result one wishes on this test, provided one has paid a bit of attention to the campaign, and politics in general. Almost every quote on there has some give-away language; many of them have been elevated into catch-phrases by the media.

That said, Obama 8 to McCain 2.

That's what I was wondering about. I thought I could have figured who said what, but I tried to be "blind" in that analysis. I must declare that I am mostly "unpolluted" by television media (no cable). I get news from NPR, NYT, and WSJ. And Colbert (via Hulu.com)

You realize that the WSJ is now owned by the same guy who brought us Fox News - the most dishonest news source to be found anywhere beyond the grocery store checkout stand.

I don't get TV service of any kind, but I think internet access more than makes up for that when it comes to media exposure of this type...

7-mccain
6-obama


Still not a big fan of either though.

Yes, I am sadly aware of that and I am also keenly aware of FOX-like agenda-news. I had been reading WSJ for years to make sure I was getting the "other side" from the NYT.

As far as what they report, they say the same thing, and you have to read the editorials to get the feel for the attitude. I have to admit, I am uncomfortable reading any editorial.

I have not seen a change in the quality of the Journal's news, nor a shift in the tenor of the editorials since the takeover. I am vigilant, though.

McCain will at least be better than the insipid Bush, and if this calamity is truly visited upon us we must fervently pray for McCain's health and hope that he doesn't drag us into another stupid war.

McCain pulling out of debates and returning to Washington for bailout talks.

What a perfect excuse for Chicken Little.

I think its a tactic to give them more time to tutor Palin for Biden(He wants to delay her and Biden). It also allows McCain to try to brush up on his own skills.
