Obama Spirals Into the Gutter

As Barack Obama continues to fall in all polling, he still doesn't get it. He is vowing to continue his spiral into the mud slinging gutter using personal attacks on John McCain further verfiying that he is an empty suit with nothing but a good speech to offer voters.

Barack Obama has now brought the teleprompter on the road with him so that he can sound as though he was educated in the Ivy Leagues, not just another affirmative action student. Without a written speech he flounders. Ah, ah, um, ... Then added to the gaffe machine that is windbag Joe Biden, it is no wonder the voters are stepping back and taking a hard, second look.

As Joe Biden tells an audience that the country should elect Obama for the fact alone that he is black - hey Joe, what about the white relatives? - I guess this is his stamp of approval for affirmative action in presidential candidates.

"On Monday's "Anderson Cooper 360," after CNN senior political analyst David Gergen said "what happened over the weekend with the economy and the bottom falling out of the financial markets...is the opportunity for Obama to seize the momentum back on his side," Crowley actually said "Just as foreclosures were showing up on B17, or n the real estate section, along comes this horrific headline out of Wall Street...I mean, this is what they wanted." That a quote from News Busters. The Chosen One wants Wall Street woes to continue on with his lies about the history of how Wall Street got there in the first place.

For someone who is bashing John McCain for being out of touch, Obama goes to Hollywood and sets records in fundraising with the celebrities desperate to support him. The fundraiser with Barbra Streisand alone was ticketed at $30,000 per guest. Just a man of the people.

He blames the Bush policies that have kept the economy moving, and slowly now as cycles go, on the Wall Street and financial crisis developing. He knows, if he is the financial genius he claims to be, that this is a lie. It is easily traced back to the Clinton financial team demanding easy loans to low income people for home mortgages. Clinton ramped up the Community Redevelopment Act that encourages minority homeownership. Though the program was developed under the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter, it was another well-intentioned program using government dollars as a social experiment. Clinton pals Franklin Raines who lead Fannie Mae and enriched himself to the tune of $100 million dollars by the time he left in 2005, and Jamie Gorelick who enjoyed $75 million in profits. You may remember Gorelick for her direct role in skewing the legal divisions between intelligence agencies which contributed heavily to the events of 9/11.

The ads circulating are at a new low. Who would have thought it possible. Deliberately mocking his physical disability when it comes to operating a keyboard is despicable. If he didn't know of the disability, and who would believe the Chosen One is ignorant of anything?, then it is just pure south side Chicago punk politics. He's a school yard bully when his thin skin is punctured with some truth telling.

Obama says McCain doesn't know how to use a computer yet in 2000 Forbes magazine hailed McCain as the most technologically savvy member among his fellow Senators. And, as the chair of the Commerce committee in the senate, the largest committee, he had oversight of all business matters in the country. He has been a strong proponent of technological research and development for years. His wife Cindy was the only member of a political campaign in 2000 to use her electronics as they are all commonly used today. And, for Obama's education - Presidents are not e-mailers. Clinton only produced 2 e-mails in office and when Bush came into office the policy was long established that a President doesn't use that form of communication - for legal purposes mostly. Can you imagine the escalated witch hunts that would produce?

McCain does read web sites, Barry. And, Cindy pitches in if necessary if computer communications are needed. Grow up, Barry.

The Obama team mocks Sarah Palin as though she is the top of the ticket. Her popularity grows. She's accused by team Obama and his cheering squad that is the media, for speaking in tongues, for banning books, for firing a State Trooper for personal reasons, all proven untruths. I thought a big promise of the Obama candidacy was that he is the one promising the change of tone in politics. He shows nothing but arrogant nastiness.

"The more the elite media wish to aid Obama, the more their bias and invective seem to turn off voters and help McCain -- and the more they in turn re-double their anger, as if more smears and furor, not fewer, are the answer. Strange to say, they don't seem to get it that they are, well, not liked or respected." That from Victor Davis Hanson's recent column at Pajamas Media.

As has been said before, Obama wears thin. His campaign is in complete chaos about the growing popularity of the McCain/Palin ticket and the cruder and shriller they get, the more the public cringes and turns away from Obama and company.

Go on and read that speech, Obama, while you try to convince the voters you have what it takes, you know, just like ordinary folks.

Yep. Me too.

Nothing like getting back up and at 'em. You should wait till the keyboard dries out.

Q: But do you go on line for yourself?

Mr. McCain: They go on for me. I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself. I don’t expect to be a great communicator...but I am becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need -

Q: Do you use a blackberry or email?

Mr. McCain: I use the Blackberry, but I don’t e-mail, I’ve never felt the particular need to e-mail. I read e-mails all the time, but the communications that I have with my friends and staff are oral and done with my cell phone. I have the luxury of being in contact with them literally all the time. We now have a phone on the plane that is usable on the plane, so I just never really felt a need to do it.


It's getting nasty out there, to be sure.

Great Post Karen! I have been gone and it is nice to get back at it with an informative post like this one! I guess the end of "politics as usual" guy has gone political at last...or at least is showing his true colors. Nice job! :)N

Great post, Karen.

And look who's playing the race card again...he's not quit since Berlin..you notice?
Biden too, huh? perfect. Such hypocrites.

Now they're accusing Reps of telling people who're foreclosed on in Michigan that they can't VOTE (I swear!)...And "that it affectes mostly African Americans".

In Virginia, the Dems are saying "republicans here won't vote for a Black candidate"

You can't make this stuff up.

I wish I were......it's the ugliest campaign I've seen, I think. And people support a man with SO little experience and so many questions unanswered while they GRILL Palen to an inch of her life.

disgusting......we should have known Obama's makeup when he picked Biden. It doesn't get meaner than that.

So glad to hear that your property survived the storm. It was soooo huge. We had the small eye of Hanna go over us and the winds were just minimal, still a few tree tops broke off out in the preserve behind the house. Hanna gave the middle of the state quite a lot of rain, but not us.

Anyway, do you think the Clintons are REALLY behind Obama... all the way? Or are they attempting to do enough to look involved but not enough to make a difference... could they be hoping that McCain wins, thus giving her another chance in four years? Hmm....

In fact, the current Wall Street crisis - especially as it relates to Fannie & Freddie - had a plan for avoidance introduced by - President George W. Bush. He could see today's nightmare coming several years ago and requested new regulation on the mortgage monoliths.

Congress refused to entertain the notion of regulation, basically telling people "there's nothing to see here, move along".

But The One doesn't deal in truth and facts. He's delusional and desperate. Which shows in his ads and speeches.

I say - let him talk all he wants. He continues to dig himself a nice big ole hole; I only hope the evil triumverate of Murtha, Reid and Pelosi join him there soon.

The whole thing about McCain and the use of computers and e-mail is so egregious - the man has physical disabilities that make it painful if not impossible to use a keyboard for long periods of time. It's disgusting that Obama's camp knew about that, yet went ahead with their slimey attack ad anyway.

How is this not ample fodder (one of many) for the latenight comedians who say they can't seem to find anything to poke fun of, in regards to Obama?

It's interesting that Clinton's and Carter's people made their money and bailed. Interesting indeed.

heidianne jackson said...

hey karen! great, great post! clinton, made a deal with his wall street buddies and repealed the glass-stengall act - it was the repeal of that legislature that opened up the pathway to the kinder gentler mortgage requirements that have put us in this predicament. additionally, the more the federal government gets involved to "right the ship" the worse it will be.

the markets will correct themselves if the government would simply get out of the way and let them do it. maybe take a page from reagan and follow what he did in the 80's.

nah - never happen at this point. everyone's falling over themselves to give/support the bailouts with no understanding of economics and no care for our enduring economy.

btw, the polls show obama up today because people are buying that bush is to blame for this mess. sheesh, sheeples.

Chuck said...

Good post Karen. Two points.
-Does anyone else wonder if this Clinton refusing to appear with Palin is a chance to emarass Obama/

-I wonder if Obama has gotten his telemprompter clean after the rodeo in Colorado?

Well, debate, bashing and voicing criticisms are all features of elections. Who doesn't want to win ? But it's the way it is won or lost that's important. Is the election more about demolishing the opponent's character with controversial accusations to win at all costs or is it instead about attacking the opposing points of view and articulating better solutions to problems that the nation faces. You choose.
