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.
