Obama Mocks McCain in Ad that McCain does not use Email … Barack, Ever Wonder Why Barack You Classy Guy?

There you go Obama … who knew that the use of email was a prerequisite for being the President of the United States. Now Obama has two items listed on his resume to be Commander and Chief, community organizer and emailer. By the way Barack … um … the disco ball was a nice effect; however, disco was not around in 1982. Check it out, not a single disco song in the Top 100.

Barack Obama mocked McCain in one of his most recent political ads as a man who is out of touch and a computer illiterate. Making fun of someone because they are old. There’s a winning policy for a battleground state like Florida. Democrats … mean isn’t funny. As a matter of fact, mean is just plain mean.

“Today is the first day of the rest of the campaign,” Obama campaign manager David Plouffe says in a campaign strategy memo. “We will respond with speed and ferocity to John McCain’s attacks and we will take the fight to him, but we will do it on the big issues that matter to the American people.”

The newest ad showcasing their hard line includes unflattering footage of McCain at a hearing in the early ’80s, wearing giant glasses and an out-of-style suit, interspersed with shots of a disco ball, a clunky phone, an outdated computer and a Rubik’s Cube.

So much for that respectful campaign and change that Obama promised everyone. Obama mocks John McCain in the fact that he does not use email so therefore he is out of touch with America and cannot lead. Do you think for one minute that Obama or his people ever wondered or better yet cared why John McCain did not email? Obama is going to regret this intentional gaffe. However, did the Obama people care to find out the reason why McCain does not use email or does that not matter? Is the mocking of McCain sufficient enough for the low lifes at Team Obama. Barack, since you are so in touch with today’s society and the world wide web I guess then toy know about that invention called the search engine? Well if anyone cared to actually wonder why McCain does not use email, read Jonah Goldberg’s article at The Corner and “Wonder no more”.

Well, I guess it depends on what you mean by “extraordinary.” The reason he doesn’t send email is that he can’t use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000): McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan – Ted Williams is his hero – but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.

So let us understand this, Obama makes fun of McCain and calls him out of touch for not using email yet Obama obviously cannot use “google” or any search engines on the internet to find out why? Al Gore invented the internet, wouldn’t he have shown Obama what to do? I guess Barack Obama would call Bill Clinton an out of touch President for only sending 2 emails in 8 years?

The archives of the Bill Clinton presidential library will contain 39,999,998 e-mails by the former president’s staff and two by the man himself. “The only two he sent,” Skip Rutherford, president of the Clinton Presidential Foundation, which is raising money for the library, said on Monday.

So according to Obama because McCain does not email, he is therefore out of touch and not fit to be President. Barack … FDR could not walk, did that diminish is ability to be President in your eyes as well?

Goldberg even goes one better in finding a New York Times article that makes it sound as if McCain is web savvy and can use a mouse which then would make Obama’s ad false.

There is something terribly insidious about the entire Obama campaign lately. Is it any wonder that they are failing in the polls and heading south fast. The attacks on Palin have been beyond the pale. Attacking her and questioning Palin in a manner that no man would ever be. Now after praising McCain’s service to America, Obama mocks McCain for injuries received during that service. First we had lipsticking a pig and all of the Obama apologists claimed it was innocent and had nothing to do with Palin. I guess this is innocent too?
