Campaign Integrity: Obama-Style

Obama doesn't seem to mind attacking McCain for accurately describing Obama's economic ideology.
Barack Obama accused Republican rival John McCain on Wednesday of stooping to low tactics by labeling the Democrat a socialist. "I don't know what's next," Obama, the presidential candidate, said at an outdoor rally in North Carolina. "By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."
Someone explain to me just how calling someone something, when they clearly are, is wrong?

The people that are eating up this guy's rhetoric are unable or unwilling to believe this guy has ideas and policies closer to Marxism, than any other candidate ever. The entire foundation of his campaign has been built around people that espouse socialism, and actively desire it to become the predominant way of life, here in the USA.

It is what it is, it's nothing else.
Just like the 95% that will supposedly be getting tax cuts.

The percentage of people that pay no taxes cannot receive tax cuts. The word "cuts' implies a decrease. You cannot cut nothing, you cannot decrease nothing. If you cut them a check, you give them something. This is not rocket science here.

But back to the word socialist, it implies taking from rich people that have a monetary stake in the economy, punishing them because they are rich, and then giving it to someone that has no stake in anything but their own little world and didn't do a damned thing to earn it. The people who have that vested interest are in the best position to help people, by using their money to make more. As a by-product of their desire to make more money, it is they who create jobs for those less fortunate.

Make no mistake here, tax them more and it will cost jobs, it will not create them.
Jobs will always pay taxes.

But go ahead, just try and take more of his money. It will not be long before he will cut jobs, eliminating the taxes those jobs paid out and the revenue generated in the private sector. Then, there will be more people clamoring for jobs, who were not clamoring for one, before it was decided to teach the rich people the lesson. No taxes, no durable good being sold, this is not the route to take. This, too, is not rocket science.

Obama is not being truthful with the American people. He describes his plans as Euro-socialism. But when pressed on the proper nomenclature, he ridicules and tries to silence those that call it what it is.

But this isn't the first time, Obama has lied to the American people. He said he would take public funding if John McCain would. But when it became apparent he could raise an enormous amount of cash, he reneged. This was the first sign that he was the same old tired politician, he said he wasn't.

Unfortunately, he has been raking in billions of dollars and there's a good chance much of it has been accepted illegally, with much of it untraceable.

Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity, campaign officials confirmed.

Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged. Instead, the campaign is scrutinizing its books for improper donations after the money has been deposited.

The Obama organization said its extensive review has ensured that the campaign has refunded any improper contributions, and noted that Federal Election Commission rules do not require front-end screening of donations.

In recent weeks, questionable contributions have created headaches for Obama's accounting team as it has tried to explain why campaign finance filings have included itemized donations from individuals using fake names, such as Es Esh or Doodad Pro. Those revelations prompted conservative bloggers to further test Obama's finance vetting by giving money using the kind of prepaid cards that can be bought at a drugstore and cannot be traced to a donor.

I wish that were all. Mustang has posted about this Obamanation that the MSM will be guaranteed to ignore. But just because they ignore it, does not mean it isn't happening.

A young Palestinian in a Gaza refugee camp is doing his part to get out the vote for Barack Obama. With a little help from the Internet, 24-year-old Ibrahim Abu Jayab is cold calling random American families from his parent's home imploring them to vote Obama.

Sounds like every street drug dealer, every major urban gang, and a multitude of Gaza benefactors are willing to buy this election for Obama. Is it any wonder, he rejected public funding?

Please tell me where there is any integrity with this man? I would desperately love to see it, but I cannot find any evidence it ever existed. He lies about his ideology, campaign funding, and accepts donations from anyone whether they are legal or not.

This tells us that he is not a man to be trusted in such a high position. His deceits will follow him into every aspect of his administration.

Interesting but will it hold?

Nothing has stuck yet, why would Sarkozy's opinion matter to a bunch of idiot Americans that think he is the messiah.

0bama, it's not that you would share your peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it's that you would cut mine in half ad give it to someone else. Get your dirty hands off my lunch, a-hole!

Greg said...

This may reveal my real name, but I wanted to share this video someone I do not know sent me from Interesting.

I have to say, this video is probably the sender's worst nightmare, but it is my biggest fantasy. I should thank her!

Greg said...

okay, actually, I found out who it is and I do know the person. She's a friend of mine, who like many of my friends, has no idea I'm anti-obama. We're actually going to be at a party this weekend where I will be the only non-0bama voter. Should be interesting!

Honestly, I wouldn't trust Barack Obama as a city dog catcher. The man is thoroughly untrustworthy.

Greg: LA tells me that you don't need any lessons from me about behaving obnoxiously, but I still want to remind you of the infinite possibilities at the party this weekend. One example of a rhetorical question is, if we pretended for a moment that Ayers had a law degree, what law firm in their right mind would hire him?

Honestly, though ... Obama's nomination takes my grandmother's reminder to a completely different level. She once said, "Any one can achieve the presidency in this great country." Now, of course, it's possible even without achievement.

Semper Fi

Why waste your time!

Well, these are my friends. They are good people, I think. And where I live, if you decide you only want to hang out with conservatives, you will be pretty lonely. We don't discuss politics too much when we hang out, and when we do, I'm careful about what I say.

Actually, I think I've developed some good techniques for dealing with liberals. Don't bother trying to convert them. Instead, point out things that will cause them to question their own beliefs. For example, I like telling lefties I decided against Obama when I found out he opposed same-sex marriage; or when he violated his written pledge to take public financing; or when I found out about all the dirty money he's got (eg., his house bought with money from convicted felon, Tony Rezko). No need to say that I'm getting more conservative by the day, or that I'm voting for McCain b/c (1) I've always admired the man and (2) Obama might destroy our county with his plans for dismantling the capitalist economy and weakening American power abroad. Baby steps, baby steps.
