Comments: McCain Gives Michigan the Finger - UPDATED

Wait a minute... did you read that article? McCain didn't come out and say "I give up on Michigan". There are still tv ads running... he's just moved on to one of the other 49 states with only 30 days left until the election!

He *did* silently pull out; these people are spinning this; McCain's said nothing like that at all.

A vote not for McCain is a vote for the friend of terrorists, lawyer who sued Citibank on ACORN's behalf because they didn't want to make bad loans: Obama. If you can fence sit because your feelings are hurt... maybe you can explain it to me better because I don't get it.

I agree with Pam. He made no public announcement and he still has ads running there. He tried to silently move on and those who want it to be public have made it so. I also agree that a vote against McCain is a vote for Obama - anyway you slice it.

But seriously, McCain would not have won Michigan anyway because of all the bellyachers there that blame Michigan's economy on Prez. Bush instead of the dems who've been running Michigan all these years.

I'm voting for McCain, he can campaign here or thumb his nose at me, but there is no way I'm going to be part of handing the election to Obama.

Okay, I was surprised but there was no call for me to be up in your face about it, sorry!

I suck.

Considerin' what you've been goin' thru, I sorta' understand why you're pissed off. And you have the right to vote (or not) as you want. Just remember--if Obama wins, no fair complainin'. EVAR.

He has given up ...

Not one radio or TV ad since Thursday and he has cancelled campaign rallys that were suppose to be next week and they are saying they don't know when or if they will be rescheduled.

McCain has pulled out of Michigan.

I am a little shocked you are taking this sooo personally..

First off, are you or were you a McCain supporter?

If so, are you a volunteer for the campaign?

Because it is not "what the gov can and should do for you"...this is about

EACH of us protecting our country from a team of socialists.

I have never had the luxury of living in state that candidates really give a crap about.

4-5 votes? ehhhh...

Not a big deal to most candidates, deal with it.

Michigan is a tough place, lots of auto industry jobs etc.

With Obama's current marketing campaign of HOPE and the gov rescuing folks...and PEOPLE BELieving him.

Well, it is a tough race to win.

I am embarassed that I did not volunteer to help McCain sooner, but signed up a little over a month ago to volunteer...

You can make phonecalls, go door to door.

This is OUR election...and our responsibility.
