denrex | 4:48 p.m.,MY main problem with Obama & Biden is their
elitist attitude. So I guess we have the same problem.Which Obama
were you listening too? The same guy who described small town Americans as,
"Bitter, they cling to guns and religion"? He sounds like an elitist talking
DOWN to everyday Americans to me!That's YOUR GUY who speaks down to
everyday Americans? But you love him, and you always will.If you
can say Sarah Palin is an elitist and Obama isn't... You are drowning in the
coolaid. There isn't a more common person in this election that Sarah Palin (a
Republican), and you can't even see that or at least you won't admit it.
do we really need another puppet(McCain) in office? Obama was once again
refreshingly "real" last night on Letterman. he speaks to the "everyday
American" in a way that none of the elitist republicans who grew up with a
silver spoon in their mouths ever could. forget about the issues.
lets give someone with real personality, charisma, and intelligence a chance to
do something right for this country.
Bring on the civil war!Bring on the culture war!I'll put my money on
the Democrats anyday.The Democrats have always represented the little
people.Too many of them.Bring the neocons on!
"The state trooper used his taser on one of his kids. He should be fired."Please learn more before you start spouting. He was investigated
for this, repremanded, punished, and it should have been over. But, we need to
bring it up again and again, just like Palin did. That is why her director
would not fire him. He had ALREADY been adjudicated over this matter.
You spend way too much time hanging around the dailycos and huffingtonpost
blogs. Get some balance in your ideology.
The Republicans are losing their minds over the fact that the Democrats are
striking back.The Republicans name call, belittle, slander, deceive,
mislead, lie, and use any other dirty tactic to manipulate this country into
giving them, and their corporate friends, exactly what they want.But
now that the Democrats aren't lying down and taking it anymore, and fighting
back, the Republicans are taking their ball and running home crying to their
mothers.I am loving one aspect particularly of this election season:
the total hypocrisy and deceitful nature of the Republicans is being exposed on
a level never before achieved.Keep the heat turned up!
Four words..."He crashed 5 planes"Well maybe one more
example..."He MAY have caused the death of 300 sailors on the
Forrestal".Just a couple of examples proving the Democrats and their
attack dogs do the same thing (swift boating). Just in case you thought only
the evil repugs are the only ones.
Two words: Swift Boat
Her point about the bridge was that she wasn't using US taxpayers money. She
said "No Thanks!" but actually, she said, I'll take your money but not spend it
on a silly bridge. It wasn't the silly bridge that wasn't built that she is
bragging up, it is that she said, "No Thanks!" to the money. Not true.
Since about 90% of the comments here are full of unsubstantiated and pointless
attacks against Republicans, I'm guessing 90% of you are C-average freshmen
attending a community college somewhere.Why don't you get back to
playing hackie-sack and leave the important political issues to the objective
Been listening a lot to NBC, CNN, and MSNBC have you? No wonder you know so
much. The state trooper used his taser on one of his kids. He should be fired.
Where did she lie about the bridge? Congress sent the money to Alaska to be
used on whatever they wanted. She took it from the bridge where it was slated
to go by the former governor and used it on other needed projects. Show me
where she wants creationism taught in schools and I'll show you where Obama
wants sex education taught to five year olds. Her daughter getting pregnant
makes her a terrible parent just like Adam and Eve were terrilbe parents because
Cain killed Abel, Jacob had some bad sons, the point is every family has it ups
and downs. Who are you to judge?
"In the week that Palin has been on the ticket, she's received more vetting than
Obama has in the 4 years he has been running."And she's not
coming out very well, is she? She tried to get her ex brother-in-law fired from
the state troopers; when his boss wouldn't do it, she fired him; there is
evidence she has had an extra-marital affair; she lied about her history of
support for funding of the bridge to nowhere; she tried to censor the library
by getting books removed from it and trying to get the librarian who refused to
remove them fired; she wants Creationism taught in public schools; her
daughter's pregnancy demonstrates that she is either an incompetent or
hypocritical parent; she's ignorant of environmental science; she's ignorant of
all science. "We still don't know much about him and what we do
know is scary. Watch his interview on O'Reilly? What a complete conartist and
liar."We know a great deal about Obama! Well, maybe you don't but
that's because you have not made the effort to learn a danged thing about him.
You have to do some reading and listening and you clearly have not!
McCain's campaign manager Rick Davis admitted that this campaign is not about
issues but personalities. The Repub Elite don't care about you they care about
their base, the haves and the have mores, they want quiet obediant workers not
educated individuals who can ascertain how thoroughly the last 8 years have
Has the writer hear of Vince Foster. This was the guy conservatives accused the
Clinton's of murdering after he committed suicide? Did Rush ever tell you Ken
Star cleared the Clinton's? Ever read anything nice about Reid in
this conservative Newspaper? What's the new nasty name for Nancy? You name call liberal. You blame liberals for Bush's eight years of failure.
You want nice? Rush, Savage, Hannity and others started this fight.
And this is the nastiest I've seen division in America. You wanted culture wars.
You may get them.
" they've launched attacks that misrepresent and, sometimes, smear Obama,It's time to force McCain and his associates to talk about issues and
stop the smear campaign against Obama. Enough is enough."Not if
you're a Karl Rove fan! That's the only thing they have in their armamentarium.
What do you mean Obama won't debate? There are debates scheduled now (the first
Oct 2). Can't wait to see who shines there. Should decide the presidency.
oh to parrot what some conservative said on another post about a "liberal"
complaining about repubs lying. Again we have a person who complains but doesn't
present one single example. what Dirt? don't you know that pigs with lipstick
are cleaner than pitbulls?
Do you remember that one president who got elected without drawing any attention
to the shortcomings, misdeeds, and flaws of their opponent?Me
That's the way it's been as long as I've been watching politics. And both sides
have been guilty of it. When they get envious or angry at the President, they
go after a scandal and try to take him down.I do think it has gotten
worse with every Congress since Nixon (that's as far back as I can remember).
And this Congress is ABSOLUTLY the worst I've experienced in my lifetime. And
it's not only me. Their appoval rating is 9% and dropping fast. That's too low
to just be a partisan disaproval. Almost all Americans are very unhappy with
Congress today.Problem is, I don't see anything that can make it
getting better anytime soon. McCain promises he will (he can't). Obama
promises he will (he can't).If Republicans win the the election the
Democrat tricks in Congress will only get worse (exponentially). If the
Democrats win the election, Republicans will be all over payback for the
"investigation-a-day" joke of a circus the Democrats have been running for the
past few years and continue the current status-quo of doing everything they can
to take the President down, or at least making him look badEvil.
doesn't want to debate mccain because he doesn't want to embarrass him. McCain
is too elderly to be able to answer questions quickly the way Obama can. He's
actually trying to be humane and compassionate to his elderly opponent.
Can somebody tell me why Obama won't debate McCain? Oh, I forgot, he can't
think and talk at the same time. Don't even think of giving some gum to chew,
that would be disastrous...
Typical Republican thinking to mistake truth for dirt.
America as we once knew it is gone forever.
Please take the lead of the candidates that you claim to hold in such high
regard and for one day but aside your vicious poison keyboards out of respect
for those that died on this day. You have all decided how you are going to vote
for and seem to just be looking to score points, just for one day but aside your
petty differences and come to together to remember those that died on this day.
To Charles..Making the statement that the "Dems on this page speak no truth and
add nothing to the debate give us a complete portrait of you and your "Hannity,
Limbaugh and O'Reilly" type thinking! You are possibly correct in saying Palin
has been vetted this past couple of weeks. Problem is that she was not vetted
properly by the one individual who should have vetter her. Had he done so we
wouldn't even know who she is! If you think Carville and Begala are so bad, then
I can only assume that you think Rove and Richards are next to diety. Like the
previous poster" WOULDN'T IT BE NICE" I too am Rep. but will be voting Dem for
the first time since JFK. Obama on Letterman last eve. gave out more info. on
the issues than the McCain camp has issued in the whole Campaign. If the Dems
look like an episode of Sienfeld, the Repubs can only be likened to a side show
at the Carnnie with McCain as the Organ grinder as he tows Palin around from
town to town playing the same old tune with the locals all giddy with her time
Please name the Republican leader who said Obama was Muslim. You can't because
it didn't happen.
Conservative amnesia is really starting to creep me out. It's like, straight out
of Orwell. "we have always been at war with Eurasia".
STill the Deseret News prints this dribble. Its actually embarrassing if other
people read this.
Sounds like another blind Limbaugh-Hannity-Fox News adherent to me. Wake up America!!! If you really believe the Dems are the only ones who "dig
up dirt" and focus only on slandering their opponents, you're completely lost to
reality. Period. This is why American politics is in the doldrums
and our government and its policies are spiraling out of control. It's become
Interesting: "Wouldn't it be nice if the Democrats would present a positive plan
of what they would do if they get elected instead of digging up dirt (or
manufacturing it) to damage the character of their opponents?"It
must be nice to live in an alternate reality where facts don't matter.Let's go over what we have heard about Obama from Republicans:Obama is a muslim.Obama's minister, remember him???Obama is a socialist, the words "Obama and Acorn, Google it" were posted here
yesterday.Obama is friends with a terrorist. Obama got a
deal from a corrupt real estate guy.We have heard all these and had
them debunked.Now that Palin is in the spotlight, the Republicans
cry foul.The question I had last week was: Who is Sarah Palin and
what are her qualifications to be President (the measure as to whether she is
qualified to be VP). It is not the Democrats digging up dirt, it is the press
doing their job.If it is digging up dirt to find out who she is, I
sure hope the press continues because we only have 8 weeks left to find out her
The Parties sling dirt because it works. We are more interested in dirt than
those complex issues.
The Democrats backers on these pages contribute no truth and nothing to the
debate. Obama has been talking about the issues? Did you listen to his speech?
Then go listen to McCain and the details of his speech and the issues. Night and
day.In the week that Palin has been on the ticket, she's received
more vetting than Obama has in the 4 years he has been running. We still don't
know much about him and what we do know is scary. Watch his interview on
O'Reilly? What a complete conartist and liar.The Clintons perfected
the art of "destruction of personal politics" with Carville and Begala and the
"War Room". The Dems have just continued on in that vein.The Dems
are like an episode of Seinfeld, much ado about NOTHING. Just words...Change,
hope. No details except more taxes...There isn't one Dem supporter
on here who has made any sense and has no true foundation about their own
Is this for real? the GOP does the exact same thing, except with their blinders
on. If people want REAL change, voting a third party candidate WILL
get the message across.
You already know who you are going to vote for. So don't sweat it. Nothing the
democrats do or say is going to change it. Most voters are like that, one side
or the other. So the circus is in town. Eventually it will go away.
Again, substitute repub for dem in this letter and it is just as true.It amazes me how blind people are. The dems think they are God's gift to the
world and that repubs are satan, and vice versa.I say they are all
evil. None of them have concrete plans for anything and almost every election
is won on slander and libel.Remember "I knew Jack Kennedy...you
senator are no Jack Kennedy" or "I will not exploit the youth or inexperience of
my opponent"...how is that a plan? (by the way, in case you are under a rock,
like most dems and repubs, the first was a dem, the 2nd a repub.)Even worse, today they are not so polite or polished in their mud-slinging.
Today it is quantity over quality. I yearn for the days when at least some
modicum of intelligence was exibited in the slander, instead of today's
school-yard spats that amount to no more than "oh yeah, well so is your
mother".Oust the 2-party system and take our country back.
Can the Republicans Smear Obama? Nope, Obama does it very well himself. "Give
a man enough rope and he'll hang himself..."
Democrats talk issues? As long as there is a teleprompter present, as long a
THEY talk about what THEY want, as long as THEY control the discussion, as long
a THEY talk about themselves, as long as THEY can raise taxes, destroy the
military, control our schools.... yep, THEY should talk about the issues, it
really makes the Republicans look that much better. Oh wait, if THEY talk about
them selves then the Republicans look even better, still... Oh, what is a
Democrat to do these days?
Oh my gosh - I just spit coffee out my nose! Where has this guy been for the
last 15 or 20 years? Or is it just convenient for him to ignore the favorite
past-time of the Republican party? I needed a good laugh this morning - thanks!
If the GOP held themselves to the same standards that they pretend to hold?
Please? I'm a GOP, but will not be voting for the McCain ticket. Dirt? Both
sides sling it. sometimes the GOP slings more. Who has not heard about Obama
being a 'muslim'? GOP has a lot of double standards. McCain cheats on frist
wife with second wife. Palin has affair with husbands business partner, kids are
only for photo ops. We've got Craig getting caught in a public restroom... the
list goes on and on and on. And yet... We GOP feel hurt when it comes back at
us? I think we actually deserve exactly what were now getting - in spades.
We're not perfect, but we tell everyone that we are, and like to pretend that
this party is the party of 'God'.I just want Obama to win so we GOP
can start reassessing our ways and means of getting things done. 4 years of
wandering will do a party good. It's not punishment, it's a realignment.
Neither party has a lock on clean politics. The sad reality is that too many
people think that only one party (the other one) is bad and theirs is perfectly
clean. Talk about clouded thinking.
I don't think poor Ralph has been paying attention.The POA of change the
Democrats has been clearly laid out.Trouble is, he won't be hearing
the plans on The Rush Limbaugh Show.
You've got it wrong. The Democrats are TRYING to talk about issues. The
Republicans have been playing personalities. In fact, McCain's campaign advisor
Rick Davis admits that their campaign is not about issues. To further their
program, they've launched attacks that misrepresent and, sometimes, smear
Obama,It's time to force McCain and his associates to talk about
issues and stop the smear campaign against Obama. Enough is enough.
You're right, they should follow the example of the republicans, who don't do
that at all. I really liked their convention, where they were 100% positive, not
condescending or insulting at all, gave LOTS of concrete plans for the future,
spoke respectfully and nicely about their opponent, Barack Obama.. oh wait that
I would say the "dirt" pile is sooooo deep, ya gotta dig it out to find the
Are you kidding me? McCain runs slanderous attack ad after attack ad based on
completely fallacious arguments, and consistently avoids discussing genuine
issues, while Obama continues to show his high class and professionalism, and
it's the Democrats that dig up dirt?Methinks the Republicans just
can't stand the fact that at no other point in history has their moral hypocrisy
shone through more than it has during this campaign.
