Obama Responds to McCain's Name-Calling


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

thinkprogress.org — It’s a dangerous road, but we have no choice, ” a top McCain strategist told the Daily News. “If we keep talking about the economic crisis, we’re going to lose.” 10/6/08

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, for the past three weeks we have been subjected to a very dirty smear campaign against Obama by the McCain/Palin organization, even including a faked sexual attack by a "big black man"who was an Obama supporter!

As someone who supported Bobby Kennedy in 1968 and shook his hand the day before he won the California primary, then was murdered, I have waited 40 years for this and I will not sit idly by while the Republicans get away with the same kind of dirty politics that symbolizes the depths to which the Party has descended.


"
by the end of next week, he'll be calling me a secret Communist"


SEN. OBAMA: "Now, because he knows that his economic theories don't work, he's been spending these last few days calling me every name in the book. Lately he's called me a socialist for wanting to roll-back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans so we can finally give tax relief to the middle class. I don't know what's next. 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."

Why Was His Statement Necessary?

Listen to Sarah Palin:



Here's what John McCain's brother, Joe, had to say:

Joe McCain, speaking at an event in support of his brother, called two Democratic-leaning areas in Northern Virginia "communist country," according to a report on The Washington Post's Web site. "I've lived here for at least 10 years and before that, about every third duty I was in either Arlington or Alexandria, up in communist country," Joe McCain, a Navy veteran, said about his military postings. He spoke at an event in Loudon County, Va.

The Failure of Republicans on the Economy

When I was young, my dad told me something that has stuck with me for a lifetime:
"If you want to live like a Democrat, vote Republican.
If you want to live like a Republican, vote Democrat"

Many voters will be be young people who may not have lived through Republican administrations other than this one and may just believe that this is unique. IT IS NOT. Here is a history of how Republicans "manage" our money, or is it STEAL our money? Watch this 30-second historical video, and you be the Judge.




Please pass this on as Republicans lie so often they believe it, and are somehow able to convince many vulnerable Americans. NOT THIS TIME!
