Well, in typical liberal, hypocrite fashion, Obama claims John McCain is attacking him…..while at the same time Obama accuses McCain of statements/tactics he has never invoked.
First, as I posted earlier, the ad highlighting Obama’s Messianic idea of himself is considered an “attack ad” by the Obama campaign and his supporters, the Main Stream Media (MSM).
But today, Obama invokes race with this “untruth” he spouted about the McCain campaign.
“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, ‘he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name,’ you know, ‘he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”
Well, I have to say that, for me personally, it won’t take a Republican candidate or sitting President to make me “scared” of Obama….his lack of experience, his anti-American attitude, and his Socialist/Marxist leanings take care of that one!
But to the point…..I have never once read or heard McCain (or Bush) say Obama is not patriotic, make fun of his name, nor degrade him because of his race. Come to think of it, I have never heard a leading Republican do so. On its face, this is an UNTRUTH and LIE in the first degree from Obama’s mouth.
For the guy who doesn’t want to invoke race into the debate, Obama is a master at it. Forget the unpatriotic or name accusations, Obama’s statement that “he doesn’t look like all of those other presidents on the dollar bills” is accusing McCain and others of out-and-out racism. Obama means to insinuate that he is black and no other President’s have been “persons of color”. (With the exception of Bill Clinton, our First Black President, of course, but let’s hope he never graces the front of our currency…:)
Of course, the Obama campaign claims Obama was not referring to race in that statement.
Well, hells bells, what was he referring to? Was Obama referring to the fact that he doesn’t wear a powder wig or wooden teeth? Or that he doesn’t have facial hair and wear a big tall hat? Come on, Obama….we are not all as stupid as your ego has convinced you that we are.
From FoxNews.com, a quote from Obama’s spokesperson:
“What Barack Obama was talking about was that he didn’t get here after spending decades in Washington……There is nothing more to this than the fact that he was describing that he was new to the political scene. He was referring to the fact that he didn’t come into the race with the history of others. It is not about race.”
It is quite the understatement that Obama didn’t come into this race with the history of others…..I would have refined it to say, that “he didn’t come into the race with even a fraction of the experience of any of those others.” But I am getting off point.
From HotAir.com, apparently Obama’s campaign had more to say to crawl out of another one of the holes that Obama’s gaffes has dug:
“This is a race about big challenges—a slumping economy, a broken foreign policy, and an energy crisis for everyone but the oil companies. Barack Obama in no way believes that the McCain campaign is using race as an issue, but he does believe they’re using the same old low-road politics to distract voters from the real issues in this campaign, and those are the issues he’ll continue to talk about.”
Aside from the fact that Obama accused McCain of being a racist and fear-monger and now they deny he did that, Obama has been the master at distracting voters from the issues. Obama’s World Tour was one of the best examples of his super-star ego persona overriding any substance that may exist…..
The McCain response was quick:
Obama “played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck,” McCain campaign manager Rick Davis said in a statement. He called Obama’s remarks “divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.”
That reply is worth a million bucks….you know the kind with white guys on them.
