Wow, Great Ad against Sen. John McCain

Saw this on Reddit.com. This was allegedly made by a private citizen and I have to say, it’s very good.

The best thing about it is that it uses Sen. McCain’s own words against him. As Sen. McCain himself said, he did everything he could to get GW Bush elected and re elected. He is hardly a “Maverick” in Washington,  but rather an experienced insider.

How on earth will he bring “Change” when he is part of the problem? He’ll “reform” Washington? What, by employing MORE even lobbyists? The very people he rails against?

I think not.

Shocking: GOP,erm, FOX News up to the same old tricks

Anyone really surprised by this?? I mean, GOP Fox News has been nothing but a Parrot of GOP talking points for years. It’s like a script that Fox “News” people follow every four years. I’m sure they will continue to do this and people will continue to fall for these lies and innuendo.

Related: I’m still wondering what Lie the McCain campaign will use next.

Sen. McCain lying yet again

The “Straight Talk Express” is continuing it’s downward spiral with yet another outright lieAgain. I suppose it’s true, Sen. McCain will say Anything to get elected. I wonder what he will lie about next?? Do we really need four more years of this??

Carly Fiorina:”Well, I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation.”

You just can’t make this up.  Carly Fiorina, one of Sen. McCain’s Economic advisor and apparent spokesperson thinks Gov. Palin AND Sen. McCain can’t run a Major corporation.

Huh? Carly Fiorina thinks Gov. Palin AND Sen. McCain can’t run a Major corporation but somehow CAN run the U.S. Government???

I’m thinking she’s done making public statements for the campaign for a while.

Sen. McCain: Reformed Maverick

Saw this on “The Daily Show“. Jon Stewart uses Video Clips to show us Sen. McCain’s Evolution. As usual, It’s very good…

Politically, a very interesting week

Let’s see:

  • The Democratic National Convention was this past week. I thought it was a good event and clearly laid out the direction the Democratic Party would like the nation to go towards.
  • Sen. Obama made history by accepting the nomination as the Presidential Candidate of the Democratic party.
  • Sen. McCain made history by nominating a woman, Gov. Sarah Palin, as his Vice Presidential running mate. NOTE: this is only history since this is the first time the GOP did it. Geraldine Ferraro was the first female Vice Presidential candidate representing a major American political party in 1984 (The Democratic Party that is). Maybe in 24 years, the GOP will have an African American Presidential candidate.

That last one has a lot of people in both parties going “Huh?“.

In her statement, Gov. Palin said:

“It was rightly noted … that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest hardest class ceiling in America. But it turns out that the women of America aren’t finished yet!”

Naturally, the McCain campaign is attempting to link Gov. Palin to Sen. Clinton’s historic attempt at becoming the next president. Ignoring the simple fact that Gov. Palin is Sen. Clinton’s opposite in nearly every way politically…

Apparently the GOP thinks experience is no longer an issue. After all, she has no experience on the National Stage and was only the Governor of Alaska for less than 2 years. Go Figure.

Prediction: Sen. McCain plays the “POW” card Every chance he gets, so I bet Gov. Palin  plays the “Glass Ceilling/Sexism” card every chance she gets. After the VP debate, the GOPwill declare victory by setting the Bar low and claiming, “She held her own!”…

Another point of Interest: Sadly (for the residents!), Hurricane Gustav might hit New Orleans during the Republican National Convention. So, instead of having the News concentrate on the GOP this week, the News will concentrate on New Orleans. This will undoubtedly bring focus on one of the greatest failures of the GW Bush administration (the handling of Hurricane Katrina) and bring comparison to that administration and Sen. McCain. Considering that Sen. McCain has voted with the GW Administration over 90% of the time, I think it’s a fair comparison. Does the United States really need 4 more years of Politics First instead of Country First?

To beat the point home (Politics First, that is), Sen. McCain is considering going to the affected area’s and deliver a speech there. “Country First”?? By dragging needed resources to guard the GOP Candidate? Can he attempt to leverage a potential disaster for political gain anymore than that???

Sen. Joe Biden is Sen. Barack Obama’s running mate

Sen. Obama has selected Sen. Joe Biden as his running mate.

I think he’s a good choice but I suspect the Sen. Clinton supporters are crying in their beer right about now. Me, I like Sen. Biden and I’m curious as to how he handles the many attacks from the GOP. I’m betting we see the Swift Boaters rise up and make up some more lies. I mean, why stop now?

How Sen. McCain’s campaign will react? Will they start painting Sen. Biden as the “2nd most Liberal” in the Senate? Will they go after his Son?

I’m betting they go for the BS “Elitest” label.  Sen. McCain can’t remember key facts about world affairs (Remember when Sen. Lieberman corrected him at a press conference?), has more houses than he can count, fought against the new G.I. Bill (And tried to claim credit), etc. and Sen. Obama is “Elitest”?


I know! A Tell all “Book” that tells the “truth” about Sen. Biden! Hopefully, America is tired of such BS nonsense.

Sen. Obama’s Campaign responds to Sen. McCain

[pageview src=”//services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/1185304443?videoId=1701198911&playerId=1185304443&viewerSecureGatewayURL=https://console.brightcove.com/services/amfgateway&servicesURL=http://services.brightcove.com/services&cdnURL=http://admin.brightcove.com&domain=embed&autoStart=false&” width=”100%” height=”412″]

Recently, the McCain campaign has released two attack advertisements and made statements that were outright false (And the media actually came out and caught it!). I was afraid that the Obama campaign would do a John Kerry and not respond in a meaningful time frame.

Wednesday night, the Obama campaign released a response advertisement appropriately entitled “The Low Road“. This is a good sign as too many people believe the nonsense put out by these McCain ads.

So much for Sen. McCain’s promise of a clean campaign.

Sen. McCain home in California is in Default??

Sometimes you just have to scratch your head and wonder. According to Newsweek:

When you’re poor, it can be hard to pay the bills. When you’re rich, it’s hard to keep track of all the bills that need paying. It’s a lesson Cindy McCain learned the hard way when NEWSWEEK raised questions about an overdue property-tax bill on a La Jolla, Calif., property owned by a trust that she oversees. Mrs. McCain is a beer heiress with an estimated $100 million fortune and, along with her husband, she owns at least seven properties, including condos in California and Arizona.

Mind you, I bet Sen and Mrs. McCain doesn’t run the day to day operations of the trust, but in an election year I’d imagine that their business would keep track of their bills better.

As per the GOP, if this happened to Mrs. Obama, they’d be all over it. We’d be hearing things like “How can you trust them to be in the White House?!?!” As it is, this is just Odd.

Obama must be doing something right! Hope he keeps it up!
