Obama Evening Wrap UP...The race ads are a comin'!!!!

obama in las vegas, nevada


We are winding down, now the race stuff is emerging

McCain is losing, period. McCain/Palin have been found out as liars, Palin a bigger liar, McCain has lost his stature, McCain will do anything to win, the press have not been nice, the press have been REPORTING THE FACTUAL LIES of this campaign, Palin was ridiculous on ABC with Charlie Gibson, Palin's stances are extreme to Dick Cheney, in other words, the honeymoon is over.

Now, McCain's poll numbers are tumbling because he can not get a grip on the economy. He came out Monday, feebly and said this:

Now the McCain has an ad out trying to state that Obama is taking advice from former Fannie Mae head, Franklin Raines, 'on mortgage and housing policy.' Oh, and Raines is black.

But the thing is Raines has come out PUBLICLY and stated he has not worked for the Obama Campaign, nor has he advised the Obama Campaign on anything.

Raines said in the statement through the campaign, "I am not an advisor to Barack Obama, nor have I provided his campaign with advice on housing or economic matters."

Obama spokesman Bill Burton added an attack:

This is another flat-out lie from a dishonorable campaign that is increasingly incapable of telling the truth. Frank Raines has never advised Senator Obama about anything -- ever. And by the way, someone whose campaign manager and top adviser worked and lobbied for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shouldn't be throwing stones from his seven glass houses.

Remember, I have always said and written, McCain will NOT WIN ON THE ISSUES. He loses and it is in the polling numbers. This is why all the kerfuffle on bullshit about lipstick on a pig, the banter of he said/he said, to totally take the electorate off message of ISSUES.

The economy is smack dab in the middle. McCain must deal with it, along with his RECORD on voting against deregulation that got us in the mess we are in now. No one can tell me that you are 100% sure that your bank won't CRASH, or your 401K will not vanish overnight. Remember, Enron? Remember, how all those employees lost their retirement, their lives? Not again, no more.

Get ready for the last 7 weeks to be a roller coaster. The GOP will try to steal it by hook or crook. But there are too many of us, fed the fuck up, to let this one get by us, again.

Get busy and get activated. WORK THIS CAMPAIGN. All you need is under "About Barack Obama."

Republicans, NOT THIS TIME.

Voter TRICKS time, in Florida, Alert
A new pitch for John McCain's presidential campaign aimed at older Democratic voters is causing complaints by Democrats and concern by elections officials.

The piece, paid for by the Republican National Committee and authorized by McCain, tells voters it is seeking to double-check their "unconfirmed" party affiliations while asking for money. A letter signed by McCain tells the Democrats: "We have you registered as a Republican."

"I was a little bit shocked and a little bit surprised," said recipient Bill Smith, 81, of Tampa, who calls himself a lifelong Democrat and has been registered at his current address since 2000. The retired plant engineer is one of about a dozen senior citizens that Democratic Party leaders identified as recipients, all of them longtime Democrats.

The RNC declined to discuss the mailer, which Democrats said has landed in five counties: Duval, Hillsborough, Collier, Miami-Dade and Escambia. continue

John McCain and the Lying Game

Politics has always been lousy with blather and chicanery. But there are rules and traditions too. In the early weeks of the general-election campaign, a consensus has grown in the political community — a consensus that ranges from practitioners like Karl Rove to commentators like, well, me — that John McCain has allowed his campaign to slip the normal bounds of political propriety. The situation has gotten so intense that we in the media have slipped our normal rules as well. Usually when a candidate tells something less than the truth, we mince words. We use euphemisms like mendacity and inaccuracy ... or, as the Associated Press put it, "McCain's claims skirt facts." But increasing numbers of otherwise sober observers, even such august institutions as the New York Times editorial board, are calling John McCain a liar. You might well ask, What has McCain done to deserve this? What unwritten rules did he break? Are his transgressions of degree or of kind? continue
