Thank You John McCain. Your Rovian Campaign Strategy is Working Wonders for Barack Obama


Strap yourselves in kids, for the final weeks of the presidential campaign promises to be the dirtiest, ugliest and most divisive in American history. And that's just fine with me, because the more Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin attack the character of Sen. Barack Obama with shameless, baseless, outrageous accusations, the faster and more decisively Obama is pulling away with the election.

Team-McCain is beyond desperate, and as they see the White House increasingly slipping away, they've been ratcheting up the intensity and outlandishness of the attacks. Judging from the electoral map and every major national and state-by-state poll, it's clearly not working, as voters, worried about their jobs, their homes and their savings amid the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, are screaming enough. They're sick of McPalin's brand of smear-politics. What they want is a plan to rescue the country from its chilling economic meltdown. What they want is some meaningful assurance that their financial world isn't coming to an end. What they want is leadership. What they don't want is a non-stop barrage of "Sen. Obama pals around with terrorists."

But again, I say "Bravo Sen. McCain, bravo Gov. Palin, keep up the fine work!" For you two have done more in the last three weeks to appreciably aid Obama's campaign than the candidate himself. Give us more, please. Lots more. We want more talk of 1960's radical and terrorist William Ayers, and his supposed "close" relationship with Obama. In fact, we'd actually like you to call Obama a terrorist. That's right, don't pull any punches. Just come right out with it and say he's on bin Laden's payroll.

And what happened to Rev. Jeremiah Wright? It's been so long since you guys harped on that "scandal." Bring him back, in all his "God damn America" glory! Re-connect him to Obama, and say they both hate white people. We also want more flag-pin talk. More Michelle Obama bashing. More "elitist' accusations. And let's not forget Obama's drug use twenty-five years ago. C'mon, Johnny, a president who smoked pot and did "blow?" Are you and the saucy stew gonna let him get away with that unchecked!? Don't forget that's he's also a lightweight. No, not in terms of political inexperience, I'm saying the dude is literally skinny! Way too thin to be president, no? Start calling him anorexic. It's time to get creative here. Who the hell wants a radical terrorist socialist elitist manorexic president? (btw, can you be both socialist and elitist?) Surely this'll resonate with voters...just as soon as they're done calculating that they'll have to work until they're 160 now that their savings are eroding faster than President Bush's approval ratings.

Yes, Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin, just keep talking. With unemployment, bankruptcies and home foreclosures soaring, and Americans' nest eggs hemorrhaging, and the collapse of global markets threatening our security, just please keep talking about everything that's so utterly of no interest to the vast majority of Democratic, Republican and Independent voters. It's music to our ears.

    Either way it's a shame that people are stuck in this left-right paradigm and actually believe that either of these puppets will bring any real change.

    That being said obviously Obama is this years lesser of two evils.
    Old man McInsane and the Hockey Mom are merely some sort of foul, gruesome, inside joke...seriously.

    This 2 party charade needs to be exposed as America really cant afford it anymore.

    Right on! My thoughts exactly, and all this as the Troopergate report is released with a 12-0 vote of the largely Republican council that has overseen it.
    And I agree to a degree with another comment that the two-party system we are entrenched in does not allow true democracy to occur, but considering that is what we have to work with, Obama, and what he can bring to the presidency, is a great deal considering what we have been through with Cheney, Bush, and Co.

    All the reasons listed in this blog are the reasons we should all be fearful of electing Obama who has lied about these radical relationships. Good to see it listed.

    However, even if these reasons listed are not true, that Obama has as his advisers a former Fannie Mae exec., as well as Clinton advisors, is reason enough to elect McCain. Clinton insisted that Fannie Mae grant loans to people who did qualify and Clinton started the rush to send out jobs overseas.

    No matter how you look at Obama -- he is not going to save us, but will cause real harm. However, Farakhan has said for all to see on a tape airing on TV, that young people will flock to Obama because they recognize him as the Messiah.

    franklin raines is not an obama advisor

    poor people are not the reason the economy tanked

    the dems as the minority party did not create the legislative agenda nor the deregulation that caused the economy to tank

    and no matter how many right wing blogs you racist fucks link to, you cannot change the facts

    bush and his crime family raped the treasury and created a war so that their buddies could get rich

    thems the facts...deal with it

    Just substitute the words "African-American" any time you see the words "radical" or "terrorist" in web postings attacking Sen. Obama. Then you'll understand the patently racist motivation of those who are so intent on focusing on his past "relationships." Racism is alive and well in the US, especially for those who are looking for any excuse not to vote for the Democrats.

    Rezko's singing to the feds. Ah gee, the feds are very interested in Obama and the bank owned by the family that gave him his mil dollar house loan. Man, there's so much on that one, can't keep up.

    Berg federal lawsuit hasn't been dropped. Papers filed to have it go to a jury trial and to compel Obama under court order to produce his so far non-exisistant COLB and US citizenship. Nope! It hasn't been tossed out of court...

    Polls are skewed to favor Obama.

    Ask yourself: What are the internal numbers for Obama????

    Obama's having to buy 30 minute ads - 30 minutes!!!! That's a ton of propaganda, plus if Obama was really making his point he wouldn't need to spend the money.

    Independents heading again towards McCain,

    Obama - Odinga connection has been made in 2004, 05, 06.

    Obama - ACORN connection has been made. Known that Obama spent over $800,000 to have ACORN engage in voter registration fraud. ELEVEN states are being investigated for ACORN fraud right now.

    Yeah, Obama is looking really presidential and like good leadership material, alright. The clouds are getting bigger and darker and full of thunder and lightening for Obama. Karma is truly a bitch.

    Its not hard to figure out.. desperate people act in desperate ways and so the wild charges and hateful lies from the Wasilla Wonder Woman and her ever morphing sidekick.. but for those serious truth seekers who may be confused by the charges from the McCain campaign just ask yourself.. "If the democrats and others were up to no good all this time, why didn't the Republicans stop it? After all they were in charge werent they? Or am I imagining things?
    And regarding the charges against Obama we all know its the old "throw enough shit against the wall and some will stick" strategy.
    These are the same people who got us into this mess and they are relatives of the same ones that cried "Dirty Jew" in Germany 1930s, and "N..Lover!" in the US in the 60s.. Ever eager to believe the worst and ever eager to spread lies.. all while singing "God Bless America!"
    But what about McCains connection with G GOrdon Liddy who advocated shooting Federal agents "in the head" and was convicted during the Watergate episode. Why he has his own talk show and Repubs love him.. Skin color is an amazing thing with these guys, isn't it?

    I hope people understand that there is one thing that wingers like to do as much as using cut and paste. They like to play like Fark and make up their own headlines.
    Example.
    Rezko spilling beans on Obama with a link to some media site. If you actually read the story it talks about Rezko but says nothing about anything being connected to Sen.Obama.
    They just hope people believe their phony headlines and don't read the story.

    The financial crisis started when Clinton/Acorn made Fannie Mae give loans to buyers who were not credit reliable. It continued with Barney Frank, Dowd (a big winner in this), Obama, Acorn, Schumer an others. The majority Dems defeated the Republican bill for regulation.

    But that's all moot. The only consideration should be ACORN is buying votes for Obama. Obama contributed money to them to enlist voters. Our democracy and very life of our country str neing threatened by a "fixed" election.

    my motivations?? your arguments are filled with half truths and downright lies

    if we are to believe anything you people write, its that the fact that repugs held congress for 14 out of 15 years, and the presidency for 7 meant nothing

    that the dems are so all powerful that it was they who pushed the agenda

    well guess what...no one is buying it

    not only will obama win on nov 4, but the congress will again be overwhelmingly democratic

    you will become a permanent minority again for 40 years

    so pack your bags you nit

    my motivation is this...that everyone in the bush crime family will swing from the highest yard arm come february 09

    that we "pissants" will be able to walk by and beat their lifeless crooked bodies with sticks

    so run scared...cuz you are next

    and if anyone killed democracy...it is the wingnut party...who trashed the constitution every chance you could get

    oh...and abortion will become sacrament...and we will dance around the bodies of all the millions of fetuses

    be horrified....now get out

    Barack Obama is a good, decent American - get it through your head - it's your own so-called candidate John McCain trying to tell you.

    John McCain cant make up his mind, whether he supports racists or not, he cant decide whether "regulation" is good or bad - none of you Conservatives can figure that out.

    What is so hard about deciding whether or not to be racist?

    Republicans have no issues to run on. They are running a very distasteful campaign using old rovian tactics. It's not working this time because the issues do not equate with their tacics.
    However, I fear something is going to happen teror wise to make folks scared and afraid. That is the only issue where McCain leads. Will it work? I don't know, but they have the white house to help them.
    As far as the issues that they keep using, repub posters here still don't get it. I knew lots of questionable folks during the
    1960s. Should I be judged by their actions? Of course not.
    But the last point is that we can not let the polls deter us. We must work hard and get out the vote. The Repubs are still up to their nasty tricks.
    Seeing those angry scary threatening white folks at the McCain/Palin rallies says it all. Those folks are so out of touch with the rest of the country. But take nothing for granted. They will never give up and plan on saying if Obama wins, that we cheated. Imagine that!

    California has to ask us, the tax payers, to bail it out because of a lack of funds. Last year ELEVEN BILLION DOLLARS went for medical care and education for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. That means, we, the taxpayers, are again subsidizing BIG BUSINESS by supporting illegals who work for less money than Americans, and thus enlarge business profit.

    Obama wants to extend andend and increase priveleges and money for Illegals. Obama will be supporting Big Business at our expense.

    I want to know why Oprah spent millions of dollars building a school for black girls who live in African and not helping children in America first? Where is her loyalty. Althought she defended it by saying Americans were too materialistic and African girls really wanted to learn.

    My point in mentioning Oprah is the fear that OBama, who attended the same church Oprah did, might consider helping other countires before America. Even now under Bush, Iraq society is being financed while our own schools fail.

    Didn't you hear Obama's response to the plumber yesterday? When the plumber asked about Obama raising his (the plumber's) taxes, Obama took a page right out of the socialist handbook.

    Yes. He would raise taxes to "spread the wealth". He would make sure that everyone got money. Remember 40% of americans don't pay taxes.

    That's socialism, folks. State run welfare of the communist kind. Depress the moneymakers to give to the commune. It didn't work in the USSR and so why would you, as a voter, want to support a failed economic model in America? That's what you're going to get with Obama.

    Please. Pay ATTENTION!!

    Obama is the most liberal senator. That means he agrees with the most left wing ideology of the DEM party which is - SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM. It's been that way since the 1920's!!!

    Obama is supporting socialism with his "programs" and "promises". It is not democracy!!!

    Obama's rogues' gallery of associates are not America friendly. His associates list reads like a guest list at the Kremlin or the palaces in Iran!!!

    Please! Think about the ramifications of losing the freedoms of a democracy.

    Do you want your sisters or daughters to have to register for the draft? Obama thinks they should - just like the socialist countries.

    Do you want your choices of how to make a living compromised?

    All America ever asks is that you make yourself the best you can be. That includes being an unbiased and informed voter!!!

    The Populist is a Progressive site and the quote inside is:

    "New Party members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, including an at-large race for the Little Rock, Ark., City Council, a seat on the county board for Little Rock and the school board for Prince George's County, Md. Chicago is sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85% victory. New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago."

    "The Obama campaign is now distancing itself from Acorn, claiming Mr. Obama never organized with it and has nothing to do with illegal voter registration. Yet it's disingenuous to channel cash into an operation with a history of fraud and then claim you're shocked to discover reports of fraud. As with Rev.

    Only 21 more days until Senator Obama becomes President-elect of the United States....

    What will the loonies on the far Right say then?

    Face it: No Republican could have won this year. All of the historical and demographic trends pointed toward a Democratic victory. Take solace, my Republican friends, in the fact that your Party never stood a chance in light of their abject failures of these last 8 years. Just as Johnson, Vietnam, Watergate, Carter exhausted this nation and led to Reagan, so has Bush, Iraq, the turning of surpluses into massive deficits, and so on, exhausted the denizens of this once great nation and directly led to an Obama victory. A decade or so in the wilderness will do the Republican party some good so long as it does not become a strictly Christianist party. Republicans would do well to mirror the British Tories under Cameron.

    The financial crisis will likely mean that much of the spending Obama would prefer will be out the window. Health care reform, however, will probably remain on the agenda due to the long term savings that would result. Middle class tax cuts are likely out the window, however (much as Clinton had to ditch the same electoral promise.)

    Get this: ACORN says it's the victim. It can't help it if it hired crooks who broke the law. Those crooks cheated ACORN too by padding their work hours. Let the electoral boards handle it, says ACORN. We are victims of people we hired.

    So, it seems Obama and everybody he associates with are victims:

    1. Obama is a victim of racism.
    2. Obama is a victim of Wright who preached things behind Obama's back that he didn't know about.
    3. Obama is a victim of Ayers slander He couldn't help it if Ayers lived in his neighborhood.
    4. Obama is a victim of poverty. His mother had to use food stamps.
    5. THe TRINITY CHURCH and Wright are victims of whites enslaving them and then muistreating them after freeing them.
    6. Obama didn't know Rizko was a crook. Don't blame him for that association. He is innocent.
    7. McCain and Palin are saying mean things about him.
    8. and ACORN misused his $800,000 donation by hiring crooks to get votes for him.

    The only thing that seems to have worked for him are his socialist party associates, if it's true he is a socialist. Or this accusation could be just another victimization of Obama.

    Thank goodness he never was a prisoner of war and had to suffer that victimization.

At a time when this nation is in incredibly dire straits on multiple fronts, Americans care not a whit about the likes of Ayers, Wright, or Rezko. We want basic competence in our President. We want a President with a cool, even temperament (which Obama demonstrates and McCain does not). We want a President who will appoint competent, intelligent underlings (as Obama did with Biden and McCain comically-or is it, tragically-failed to do with Palin).

    This is not 1988. The Willie Hortons of the world will not prove pivotal. Sorry, bub, but your tactics do not fit the times and, as such, McCain and Republicans across this nation will go down in a historic defeat.

    If America wants Obama, why does Obama's ACORN need to commit voter fraud?

     
  • At 1:32 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Bingo!!!

    That's what is wrong with the Obama picture.

    Why commit fraud via ACORN in order to be elected? Why buy 30 minute ad time for propaganda purposes if America is so in love with the thought of Obama as president? Why continue to refuse to release pertinent information, such as, a birth certificate, college transcripts and the myriad of other documents?

    Why elect someone who is so shady, that he's been investigated in Chicago for corruption. Rezko could be a real game changer. Are americans that lazy that they would elect a thug as president just to be novel? Didn't america do that with Bush Jr already?

    11:58 Thank you for pointing out that character really matters in this election Who wants a cool, passive victim?

    You did, however, forget to point out that Obama's mother suffered use of food stamps while attending Harvard. What a hardship.

    And, Obama has reminded us that his grandmother who was a a bank president, couldn't buy all the things she wanted to because she was paying for his expensive tuition at a private school.

    I guess we might think of rewarding Obama for what he's endured by electing him President. And we will get one who "shares our pain."

    Don't forget there are members of numerous special interest groups that want Obama at all costs -= never mind how the country might suffer.

    They are women who insist on having abortions;
    They are almost all the blacks in the country;
    There are those who support illegal immigration;
    There are those who demand gay marrigage;
    There are those who believe socialism should be the way we're governeed;
    And, those who just simply hate Bush, Evangelicals, and Republicans.

    Oh, I forgot those Democrats who have prospered during this time: Rangel, Dowd, Polosi's husband, and "their kind".

    The solitary wing-nut continues to hijack the board.

    ACORN has not committed voter fraud. Voter fraud is when someone actuall votes multiple times or a dead person "votes" or people who aren't qualified to vote have their votes counted.

    At worst, in some isolated cases, ACORN may be guilty of voter REGISTRATION fraud. Since there are plenty of barriers preventing "Mickey Mouse" from actually voting, it's intellectually dishonest to call it "voter fraud" as it's not as if there's been actual fraudulent voting, such as double voting.

    But again, why do you insist on posting every few minutes? Do you enjoy having a conversation with yourself? Obama will win. Go get some therapy so as to be able to accept that fact.

     
  • At 2:18 PM, Blogger Sidney Condorcet said…

    Let's go down 1:42pm's list of these nefarious groups that support and who would try to influence Obama:

    1) women who are pro-choice; (GASP! The horror...Be afraid America!)
    2) Blacks (Why would Americans be afraid of an Obama Presidency merely because most blacks support him? Oh yeah, you're a fucking bigot who believes that we should live in fear of black people and keep them in an inferior position).
    3)Supporters of amnesty for illegal immigration (sorry, bub, but your own candidate introduced a bill in the Senate doing just that...so it's a push, at best)
    4)supporters of gay marriage...(With all the problems beseting America, do you really think gay marriage is going to get anyone up in a lather?)
    5)Socialism? A red herring that conservatives have used against just about any Democrat. Sorry, buddy, but the Red Menace is long gone. You can hate on liberals all you wish, but there's a big differece between liberals (of which Obama clearly is a proud member) and socialists and communists. Your anachronistic mode of thinking is laughable.
    6) People supporting Obama hate Bush? Bush has a 20% approval rating. 4/5 of Americans believe he's been a failure, so clearly your outnumbered by the vast majority of your own countrymen.

    Keep on ragin' against the dying of the light. America will be just fine with Obama behind the wheel. Then again, after these last eight years, anyone would be an improvement.

    Sidney many of us who blog here have prayed you would get a job so you didn't clog this blog with your ubiquity. Your most anoying attribute is that you constantly miss the point in your responses.

    This time the list of special interest supporters for Obama was only to point out, in response to 1:02, that there is a large number who DO want him without or without ACORNS' recruiting.

     
  • At 2:33 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Sidney, you're projecting. You are the one who appears as others with real names, and as Anonymous. You are not clever enough to change your style, or correct your misspelled words in the "differing" blogs. I remember one conversation you had with yourself as "Michael" and as "Sidney."

    It wouldn't be so tiresome if you weren't so boring.

     
  • At 2:36 PM, Blogger Sidney Condorcet said…

    Well, 2:27pm, I guess I could aways post anonymously like you (or the ACORN guy) and then I can achieve ubiquity without the accountability of being called out for multiple posts. Should I just do that? No, unlike you, Mr. ACORN, I have the stones to at least attach myself to a monicker. If I have to hear bitching like yours as a result, so be it. It's far more honorable than merely posting the same shit over and over (in this case, ACORN) while pretending to be multiple people.

    You say I miss the point, and then you clarify what the point is as follows:
    "This time the list of special interest supporters for Obama was only to point out, in response to 1:02, that there is a large number who DO want him without or without ACORNS' recruiting."

    So the list of supporters was meant to demonstrate that there are a large number of people who "DO want" Obama elected? Fascinating...Jaw-dropping revelation...There are people actually supporting the front-running candidate for President. Thanks for clarifying that profound point for me. Geesh, you must be an actor with professional training, because you play a the role of village idiot real well.

    Sidney points out that ACORN is not committing voter fraud until the illegal voter registrants that ACORN submitted actually vote.

    This is the same argument that a terrorist is not a terrorist until he flies a plane into building.

     
  • At 2:45 PM, Blogger Sidney Condorcet said…

    There are many mechanisms for ensuring that VOTER REGISTRATION FRAUD DOES NOT ACTUALLY AMOUNT TO VOTER FRAUD. In the few instances where there has been registration fraud, the perpetrators should be appropriately punished and the fraudelent registration cards should be rejected. That is what is in the process of occurring so that fraudulent voting does not occur.

    By the way, I love the people who say that I'm ubiquitous on these boards when: a) I have only had a few days of multiple postings since the end of the Democratic primaries and b) if you notice that i'm posting my remarks so much, then you yourself may need to get a job since you clearly spend nearly as much time (if not more lately) than I have on Andy's blog. Pot meet kettle.

    Obama's your next President guys and gals, deal with it.

    So, the Troopergate investigation was concluded over the weekend.

    Despite the fact that the Report expressly stated that Palin VIOLATED state ethics law, Palin in her finest Orwellian fashion said that the Report did the exact opposite of what it clearly said.

    Even her state's own major newspaper was incredulous at her outright LIES.

    The Anchorage Daily News had this to say:
    "Sarah Palin's reaction to the Legislature's Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation. She claims the report "vindicates" her. She said that the investigation found "no unlawful or unethical activity on my part." Her response is either astoundingly ignorant or downright Orwellian....
    Gov. Palin and her husband felt so passionately about Wooten because the case was so personal to them. Their passion blinded them to any other considerations. They had no sense that the power of the governor's office carries a special responsibility not to use it to settle family scores. They had no sense that legal restrictions might prevent the troopers from firing Wooten. They had no sense that persistent queries from the governor's office might be perceived as pressure to bend state personnel laws.

    Gov. Palin and her husband were obsessed with Wooten the way Capt. Ahab was obsessed with the Great White Whale. No Wooten, no peace. Has Gov. Palin committed an impeachable offense? Hardly. Is what she did indictable? No. But it wasn't appropriate, especially for someone elected as an ethical reformer. And her Orwellian claims of "vindication" make this blemish on her record look even worse.

    You asked us to hold you accountable, Gov. Palin. Did you mean it?"

    But I guess the ACORN poster trying to get us scared about Obama has no qualms with having a Vice President who is a brain-dead dilettante who refuses to acknowledge reality and invents an alternative reality to live in. She's a "denialist loony" but that's ok with Mr. Acorn.

    McCain accepts endorsements from people who FUND TERRORISM!! (By Andrew Sullivan):

    I think Obama's relatively weak but nonetheless real interactions with William Ayers are a legitimate campaign issue. But Obama's best response, after telling the facts of the relationship, is to point out who else supported him. Republican machers Walter and Leonora Annenberg gave the former terrorist $50 million. They also gave money to Rick Santorum, Strom Thurmond and Mitt Romney. Annenberg was Nixon's ambassador to Britain. If Obama is "palling around with terrorists," the Republican Annenbergs are funding them.

    Yesterday, the McCain campain put out a press release boasting that Leonore Annenberg had just endorsed him for president. Why is McCain happy to accept the endorsement of a funder of terrorism?

    Sidney, This is difficult but please try to understand.

    A person doesn't have to come to this site more than once to see that you have posted seven times within a few hours and in some cases minutes. It doesn't take a great expenditure of time for that person tomake such an observation and still have a job. However, you must be unemployed to have so much time to type your rants.

    You might also consider how few, if any, people respond to your ridiculous observations. I feel guilty writing this and taking space for such nonesense on a seirous blog. would you did the same.

    When a man asked Obama about his tax increases for the wealthy Obama responded "We have to redistribute the wealth."

    We see how that worked in Russia.

    Actually, 6:24pm, seeing as how I'm not an insipid fool like yourself, it only takes me between (generally) between 30 seconds and a two minutes (for the rare, very lengthy posts).

    It is incredibly easy to stay employed while posting for (at the very most) 10 minutes or so during the course of the entire day and, mind you, most days I do not post at all.

    Jesse Jackson announced to the world that Obama will no longer put Israel first and be influenced by its needs. I don't think Jackson is "out to get" Obama. I think he was telling what he believes to be true, and probably what Jackson hopes is true.

    Although Obama has said over and over he would continue our policy toward Israel, I remember his rep. going to Canada and revealing that Obama said things that he would not necessarily do if elected.

    Wright said that Onama is a politician and a politician will say anything to get elected.

    Who knows what Obama will do?

    Credit Card Fraud for Obama

    "NORTH KANSAS CITY, MO. -- A North Kansas City couple has been left scratching their heads after they became the victims of a political scam.

    Steve and Rachel Larman say a strange credit card charge appeared on their statement this month -- a $2300 donation to Barack Obama's presidential campaign"

    Identity theft is a natural progression from false voter registration. We've become a nation of crooks from the top down, and the bottom up.

    And, never has there been so much scandal surrounding a candidate who will likely be elected anyway.

    One "Swiftboat", untrue ad did in Kerry, but OBama surivives proof of unacceptable concerns.

    Obama's tax plans will destroy innovation and the incentive to succeed

    " Conservatives yesterday ripped Obama after he was caught on video telling an Ohio plumber that he intends to take the profits of small-business owners and "spread the wealth around" to those with lesser incomes.

    The fracas over Obama's tax plan broke out Sunday outside Toledo when Joe Wurzelbacher approached the candidate.

    Wurzelbacher said he planned to become the owner of a small plumbing business that will take in more than the $250,000 amount at which Obama plans to begin raising tax rates.

    "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" the blue-collar worker asked.

    After Obama responded that it would, Wurzelbacher continued: 'I've worked hard . . . I work 10 to 12 hours a day and I'm buying this company and I'm going to continue working that way. I'm getting taxed more and more while fulfilling the American Dream.'"

    What's happened to the story that Obama is a member a Socilist Party? Even Palin didn't mention it in her speech on TV today.
    It must not be true If it were the news would spread and give the Presidency to McCain.

    Biden routes $2 Million campaign donations to his family members

    "Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. has paid more than $2 million in campaign cash to his family members, their businesses and employers over the years, a practice that watchdogs criticize as rife with potential conflicts of interest.

    Getty Images FAMILY: Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s son, Hunter Biden, was at a campaign stop with his father in December. The candidate's sister, Valerie Biden Owens, is his longtime campaign manager.

    The money largely flowed from the coffers of Mr. Biden's failed presidential campaign during the past two years to a company that employs his sister and longtime campaign manager, Valerie Biden Owens, according to campaign disclosure filings."

     
  • At 12:57 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Look past the breaking of the story to what Obama and Jackson Jr are saying now. The litany is pure socialism.

    The exchange with the Ohio plumber should be enough to scare anyone away from Obama. His tax plan would break the soul of America - the small business owner. Good-bye businesses and jobs!!!

    Google Obama and socialism. It's there. Go to youtube and view all the actual vid clips of Obama speaking in his own words the socialism agenda he wants to lead America to. Good-bye Democracy!!!

    And to the clown up thread who said it wasn't their job to get the information out, it was the media's.

    What if Paul Revere had said that?
