Barack Obama may not want to measure the Oval Office drapes just yet or start prematurely or presumptively picking his Presidential Cabinet. Some very respectable polls are showing that the race is tightening and the Obama lead is shrinking. In an effort to pander to middle of the road Republican leaning voters, Obama states that his Cabinet would be bi-partisan. Does anyone really think that Obama plane to share is “Presidential wealth” with Republicans? A socialist does have their limits.
Obama … here is some change you can believe in, the polls they are a changin’. A recent Rasmussen daily tracking poll has the Presidential race down to an Obama 3 point lead.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Barack Obama attracting 50% of the vote nationwide while John McCain earns 47%. This is the first time McCain has been within three points of Obama in more than a month and the first time his support has topped 46% since September 24.
The IBD/TIPP Tracking Poll also has the race with an Obama 3 point lead with 6 days to go before the election. According to the Traditional Gallup Daily Tracking poll, Obama has a 3 point lead as well. Is it possible that McCain may make this a race after all and it will be a long election night before a candidate is declared a winner?
The John McCain campaign is asking the LA Times to release a video tape of a party for a prominent Palestinian activist that Barack Obama attended in 2003. So why won’t the LA Times release the tape … WHAT ARE THEY HIDING!!!
John McCain’s campaign is demanding that the Los Angeles Times release a video of a party for a prominent Palestinian activist that Barack Obama attended in 2003.
The Times described the going-away party for former University of Chicago professor, and Obama friend, Rashid Khalidi, in a story in April. The story reported that Palestinians thought they might have a friend in Obama because of his friendships in that community, despite the fact that his positions have never been particularly pro-Palestinian.
“A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb, citing Obama’s friendship with Khalidi, who is now a professor at Columbia University.
He said the video could, among other things, show how Obama responded to a poem recited at the party accusing Israel of “terrorism” and warning of consequences for U.S. support for Israel, which Goldfarb described as “hate speech.”
It is safe to that whether the liberal MSM had permission or not from the source if a video tape was damning to John McCain there would have been a world premier of it and all network programming would have been preempted. However, the LA Times who has already endorsed Barack Obama for President refuses to release a controversial tape of Obama, Rashid Khalidi and Ayers at a party. What are they afraid of and what are they hiding? Why are they holding back the tape? Its is obvious that they are once again carrying the water for Obama and do not want the Anerican public to see the truth of what Obama is really all about.
What Will America be Like with a Democratic President, House and Senate … Increase Taxes, Decrease Military and Socialism
Can America afford to have four years of a Democratic controlled House, Senate and Presidency? Tax and spend liberals in control with no checks and balances … the premise is frightening.
If anyone thinks that there will not be increases in taxes on all with a Democratically controlled House, Senate and Presidency then you have not been paying attention to politics for the past 50 years.
There are basically always two major issues during a Presidential campaign, the economy and national security. Of course there are many other issues that attack people’s attention like healthcare, illegal immigration, social security … However, when one goes to the polls this November they need to make their decision bases on the future of the US economy and the fate of our national security and who best can lead America with those two issues.
We have already heard that Democrat Barack Obama wants to institute socialism and a “spread the wealth” policy as a way to how America’s economy is to go forward. Maybe the actual phrase from Obama that people can better understand is “spread your income.” This is no gaffe on Obama’s part, he defends his economic socialism plan of spreading your income to others who have done nothing to deserve benefiting from it. Why would anyone think that the Government can take better care of individuals or businesses in reallocating the monies when they cannot even take care of their own house? Redistribution of wealth is not neighborly, it is socialism. People giving and providing others through charity, that is neighborly. The government forcing people to give to others is hardly what our Founding Fathers ever envisioned.
John McCain TV Ad
According to the PEW Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism the media has been in the tank for Barack Obama in a most decided way. Who would have ever thought. The MSM covering McCain in a more negative light than Obama, say it isn’t so. Why would the media ever try to take the side of one candidate over another, especially when that candidate agrees with their liberal agenda. Hmm? Sadly enough during this Presidential election campaign the media has finally shown its true colors and can never be trusted again to report anything honestly without their liberal slant and agenda. Any objective pretense is gone when one openly roots for one candidate over another. As Power Line states by their reaction to this study, No Surprise here. The media is supposed to protect us from government, not take sides with it. That would be called propaganda, not media.
The media coverage of the race for president has not so much cast Barack Obama in a favorable light as it has portrayed John McCain in a substantially negative one, according to a new study of the media since the two national political conventions ended.
Press treatment of Obama has been somewhat more positive than negative, but not markedly so.
But coverage of McCain has been heavily unfavorable—and has become more so over time. In the six weeks following the conventions through the final debate, unfavorable stories about McCain outweighed favorable ones by a factor of more than three to one—the most unfavorable of all four candidates—according to the study by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism.
Study: Media Portrays McCain in “Substantially Negative” Light Compared to Obama. The media would have “We the People” believe that Sarah Palin is a drag on the McCain ticket when every honest thinking person knows it is just the opposite. Many Republicans are engaged in the process only because of Sarah. Where is the media attention to Biden and his obvious gaffes that have affected Obama in a negative way?
Frightening, Joe Biden Says: “It Will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama … it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right”
Inexperienced Obama Response to World Test on American National Security You Can Believe In …
Who do you want in charge when America is attacked, an inexperienced, naive, never been tested Obama or and experienced and tested John McCain? The national security and safety of its citizens is not a social experiment and should never be.
Mark my words. Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking … to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.” (Joe Biden)
Biden gaffe or complete honesty? Is Biden providing some real insight here and asking people to wake up an notice the obvious? Could Biden actually be putting country before politics? The national security of the United States is not something to take lightly. Terrorism is a real and present danger, yet Obama and his surrogates would lead you to believe a rank amature can handle it. Why, Obama’s own VP Joe Biden never thought so in the past and it appears he is still not convinced now.
The media and Obama campaign would lead “We the People” to believe that all new Presidents are tested by crisis. Really, not all. Harken back to when a supposed too old to be President Ronald Reagan first took office. The first thing that happened was that US hostages were freed from Iran as they wanted nothing to do with Reagan. The same can most likely be said regarding McCain. There is a reason why the military supports McCain while Obama draws world support from countries that are hardly friendly to the United States.
Democrat VP candidate Joe Biden is now predicting an attack by enemies of the United States within the first 6 months of an Obama presidency. See full transcript HERE. What might even be more frightening than an inexperienced and naive Obama at the wheel during such a crisis is the fact that Biden says that America is going to have to stand with Obama because after such an attack and I quote, “Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
Frightening! America will be attacked and Biden is predicting that Obama will not get it right!
“And here’s the point I want to make. Mark my words. Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he’s gonna have to make some really tough – I don’t know what the decision’s gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it’s gonna happen. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate. And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you, not financially to help him, we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
The Obama spin machine would lead you to believe that Biden meant the next president’s mettle will be tested no matter who was elected. BS!!! More Obama excuses to his lack of foreign policy credentials. Biden specifically stated, “The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year old senator president of the United States of America.” Last time we checked John McCain was a little older than 47 and tested. BTW, I do not remember the “Bay of Pigs” going to well for JFK.
Answering questions after a meeting with Biden and national security advisers, Obama insists that Joe Biden intended to say that the next president will be tested by foreign powers, regardless of who is elected.
“Joe sometimes engages in rhetorical flourishes, but i think his core point was that the next administration is going to be tested, regardless of who it is,” he said at the Richmond, Va., event.
So Obama is claiming that the political campaign is too negative and ugly, huh. I guess that is only true when one questions Obama’s policies. Maybe Obama should keep his own surrogates in line before throwing stones. Present US Democrat Senator of Massachusetts insulted Republican candidate for President and US Senator John McCain with “Depends” comment. Anything for a laugh I guess when its at the expense of a Republican. I would ask John Kerry two questions. One, does he think its a laughing matter to those seniors and those who are not seniors who have to use adult diapers? Two, Sir … you are not that much younger than John McCain, you just have the benefit of botox. Way to insult the AARP vote and those with urinary incontinence. Glad you find that funny John Kerry.
“I don’t know if any of you know what it’s like. I do, obviously,” he said. “I’ve been asked all of those brilliant questions that were repeated this year.”
“Barack got asked the famous boxers or briefs question,” Kerry went on. “I was tempted to say commando.”
The senator said Obama successfully parried that question but that John McCain, the GOP nominee, had some problems.
“Then they asked McCain and McCain said, ‘Depends,’” Kerry said to lots of laughter from the crowd.
More Niceties from the LEFT … Jon Stewart to Sarah Palin, “F#@& You” … No Negativity from the LEFT Colin Powell
Colin Powell best look up in the dictionary the definition of the word “inclusive.”
Sadly enough in the end to some one who was once respected by many, Colin Powell can only see hate and negativity on one side through his own rose colored glasses. Powell has said that his decision to back Obama is not about race, really? Who is Powell kidding that his decision is about the negative turn of McCain campaign, back in September Powell made the following comment … “Colin Powell, the first African-American Secretary of State, said this afternoon that electing an African-American US president would be “electrifying” for the world …”
Because this is average, play nice, non-negative coverage of politics from the Left … Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” tells Sarah Palin “F%#k You”. You a wit and vocabulary you have Jon Stewart. Sorry Mr. Stewart is you think that the pro-America part of the country does not include you. Do you have a guilty conscience? How ironic and ridiculous that an elitist like Stewart would become so offended that rural America is referred to as pro-America when Stewart makes a living trivializing small town America and the people who live there and referring to anyplace that is not where high browed city folk live as “the woods”.
Speaking to a college audience in Boston, Mass. Friday, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart used his stand-up routine to respond to Sarah Palin’s comments about “pro-America” parts of the country, shedding the profanity restrictions that govern his Comedy Central show.
“She said that small towns, that’s the part of the country she really likes going to because that’s the pro-America part of the country. You know, I just want to say to her, just very quickly: [expletive] you,” Stewart said to raucous applause.
John McCain Says that Obama’s Tax Policies are Socialist … Its not About Joe the Plumber, Its About Spreading Your Wealth
“Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.” So is Socialism. If it looks, smells and tastes like socialism … it is socialism. Sadly enough, the hideous actions by the Obama campaign and their minions to silence “free speach” look a lot like Communism and Totalitarianism.
Imagine, Joe the Plumber, that would be “John Q. Public” openly targeted for destruction by the main stream media and a political party all because a Presidential candidate Barack Obama is a socialist. What a dark day for America, worse than any credit market crisis could ever be.
Before the Democratic Machine, the LEFT-wing moonbat blogs and the liberal mainstream media decided to make every effort to destroy “Joe the Plumber,” Barack Obama made a simple comment to Joe the plumber that Obama regrets every saying in that he wanted to … “Spread the wealth around.” Because of that political blunder on Obama’s part … Joe the Plumber is public enemy #1 with the LEFT & MSM and is being scrutinized and vetted more than is Barack Obama. We actually now know more about Joe the Plumber and his personal life that we do Obama. Why is it that the MSM did not take such effort and zeal in to looking into Obama’s birth certificate? They certainly re-questioned John McCain’s birth status during this campaign, why not Obama’s? The answer is just like with “Joe the Plumber”, the MSM is in the tank for Barack Obama and will make every effort to deflect danger and protect their candidate. If that means destroying a private US citizen, i.e. “We the People”, then so be it.
In perfect and predictable lockstep the MSM and the Democratic machine look to muddy the water and deflect attention away from The Obamamessiahs actual socialist words of “spreading the wealth”, and instead try and destroy John Q. Public for having the audacity of asking a question of a Barack Obama policy.
Then we were witness to the 3rd and final Presidential debate (transcript) where “Joe the Plumbers” name was brought up numerous times. While watching the debate many must have thought to themselves, why doesn’t John McCain while having a captive audience and referencing “Joe the Plumber” just come out and say the obvious … Obama’s tax plans are SOCIALISM!!! This is just one of the many head scratching moments when so many Americans wondered why McCain did not call out Obama.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Saturday accused Democratic rival Barack Obama of favoring a socialistic economic approach by supporting tax cuts and tax credits McCain says would merely shuffle wealth rather than creating it.
“At least in Europe, the Socialist leaders who so admire my opponent are upfront about their objectives,” McCain said in a radio address. “They use real numbers and honest language. And we should demand equal candor from Sen. Obama. Raising taxes on some in order to give checks to others is not a tax cut; it’s just another government giveaway.”
John McCain now suggests that Barack Obama’s tax plan is socialist. Make no mistake out it, providing tax breaks to 95% of America when 90% of Americans do not pay taxes is redistribution of wealth, i.e. socialism.
Let McCain be McCain and let the Maverick win or lose on his own terms but please take the restrictions off and let him talk to the people as a person, not a politician. There should be nothing to hold back and at the end of the day one should never have any regrets.
It has become increasingly obvious in the poles that the John McCain campaign needs a jump start. Due to the drag of GWB, an economic crisis and a media that is forever in the tank for his opponent, McCain needs to do something to shake up his run for the Presidency. Why are they running a conventional campaign when “We the People” are crying out for leadership, accountability and character. Fire the campaign, so says Bill Kristol.
It’s time for John McCain to fire his campaign.
He has nothing to lose. His campaign is totally overmatched by Obama’s. The Obama team is well organized, flush with resources, and the candidate and the campaign are in sync. The McCain campaign, once merely problematic, is now close to being out-and-out dysfunctional. Its combination of strategic incoherence and operational incompetence has become toxic. If the race continues over the next three weeks to be a conventional one, McCain is doomed.
Many of the same assertions that Kristol puts forth in his NY Times Oped I have been wondering myself. Why has the campaign not made John McCain and Sarah Palin more accessible? There is media that McCain and Palin could get their message out to that does not include The View or David Letterman. At the end of McCain’s speech at the Republican National Convention he asked Americans to fight, to fight on with him. I might ask what happened to that person, that vigor and that fight. Is John McCain ready for a comeback?
Barack Obama Smelly Plane … Seeing How The Other Half Lives … “everything that goes around comes around”
Who knew that Phoebe from “Friends” should be the house band on the Barack Obama plane singing her never ending rendition of Smelly Cat? Seems that Dean Reynolds of CBS News has changed candidate coverage from Obama to McCain and as he states, The differences between the two are striking. Reynolds also makes a rather glaring comment in regards to the Obama campaign, “But in politics, everything that goes around comes around”
Smelly Plane, Smelly Plane,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Plane, Smelly Plane
It’s not your fault
They won’t take you to the vet
You’re obviously not their favorite pet
Smelly Plane, Smelly Plane,
It’s not your fault
You may not be a bed of roses
You’re not friend to those with noses
I’ll miss you before we’re done
Or the world will smell as one
Reynolds also makes a rather glaring comment in regards to the Obama campaign, “But in politics, everything that goes around comes around” It would appear that the press is treated better aboard McCain One vs. Air Obama. It would also seem that the McCain camp is more organized.
