Obama Invokes Rush Limbaugh in New Spanish-Language Ads



By Ed O'Keefe
The Obama campaign has released new radio and TV ads in Spanish that seek to tie Sen. John McCain to anti-immigrant comments made by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. The ads also suggest the Republican has "dos caras" -- "two faces" -- when it comes to his relations with Latino voters. The new messages, airing in Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico, come in response to recent Spanish-language ads by the McCain campaign that suggest Obama is responsible for the collapse of last year's bipartisan immigration reform efforts.

"They want us to forget the insults we've put up with, the intolerance," the television ad's announcer says in Spanish as a picture of Rush Limbaugh appears onscreen with quotes of him saying, "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out."

"They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much," the ad continues. "John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families."

The companion radio ad uses the same script as above and then continues:

"Don't forget that John McCain abandoned us rather than confront the leaders of the Republican Party. Many of us were born here, and others came to work and achieve a better life for their families -- not to commit crimes or drain the system like many of John McCain's friends claim. Let's not be fooled by political tricks from John McCain and the Republicans. Vote so they respect us. Vote for a change."

This Spanish-language ad battle started Friday, when the McCain campaign started airing a TV spot in Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico that laid the failure of comprehensive immigration reform at the feet of Obama and his Democratic colleagues, even though he supported the bipartisan efforts to enact such reforms and voted for their final proposal last year. It continued Tuesday when the RNC bought time in Nevada for a radio ad expressing similar arguments. The Obama campaign and Hispanic and pro-immigration reform groups denounced the ads as distortions.

"I think they don't want us to pay attention to the fact that John McCain's message in English is different than his message in Spanish," said Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) during a conference call with reporters today. "If the Latino community can't count on John McCain in the heat of an election, how can we possibly count on him when the heat is really on in the White House?"

Both candidates have aired Spanish-language radio and TV ads primarily in the Southwest and Florida, where growing Hispanic populations have the potential to help turn previously red states blue for Obama. A July survey by the Pew Hispanic Center gave Obama a wide lead over McCain nationwide among Latino voters, and Democrats don't plan to let the lead slip.

"Whenever we get a punch from Senator McCain, we're going to counterpunch harder," former transportation secretary Federico Pena said on the conference call. "We're not going to take any vote for granted."

The Obama campaign also plans to start airing advertisements next week in Florida.

Being supplied with the incorrect information can have grave consequences, especially when it results in you making incorrect decisions based on that bad information. There is a battle going on right now on Capital Hill, between law makers who are pro payday loans and those who are anti payday loans. Some of these politicians, have already passed laws restricting payday loans, and are currently pushing to have them outlawed altogether. Some, such as Barack Obama, are seeking to outlaw the industry all together; such laws are put in place to protect the people from getting into financial ruin but in reality it is restricting the people who really need a payday loan from getting one. Now is the time to educate your friends and family to preserve your rights to financial independence.

It is easy to get into trouble if you take a chance on something without being informed, or take action based on faulty information or assumptions. Currently, the pros and cons of payday loans are being hotly contested, and just what is in the future for the industry. Some of our leaders, from both sides of the aisle, have even enacted legislation at the state and local levels that makes it difficult to get a payday loan if you need one, and some have banned them outright. Still others, such as Barack Obama, are looking to get rid of the industry altogether; which is based on the idea that payday loan lenders are nothing more than legalized loan sharks, which is just outright faulty logic. This is the time to educate yourself and your friends so all can preserve their right to financial independence.

Wow I just read a lot of ignorant comments from both sides. I also read thought out arguments. I will say this if you think what Obama did in this ad was okay, well you need to check your ethics at the door. I do not think playing games with people is good. For those who pretend like the 90's were a glory age grow up people had problems then too. theres a quote found in a book I have read "The poor you will always have with you" As I was in the middle class in the 90's and my familied struggled according to some it is Bill Clintons fault, your logic not mine. Forget that we made bad financial decisions and we made poor choices. Listen the economy and making money is not that complicated make more than you are spending. To anyone who has read this you can cut back on the internet that is a privelege not a neccesity hey those cell phones nice as they are really not needed. See a lot of our financial woes are our own. Bush did not make you poor, I know he is an easy blame but what are you going to do when you can not longer blame him for your problems. You think the factories will come back, you think the jobs that have been lost will return? Just ask Hillary about Buffalo it is a lot easier said then done. Neither party needs to insult my intellegence, nor do they need to assume I am rich because I support that guy who is conservative. If you saw what I saw every day you would wish that people would pull up there boot straps and work hard. I know that I am a McCain supporter it does not matter what I say there will be those who will assume something is wrong with me, that I have issues, that I am against choice.....ummm but you do not like my choice of canidates,,,no! for my really right friends, Obama will not destroy the country he is not some secret operative out to destroy the country, he is a socialist but if he can get it to work without power and corruption it would be nice but history always tells the tale of corruption in that system....so I will stay with captilism considering I do not have stocks and bonds...oh liberals there goes another one of your theories

Look, anyone that watched the primary and still thought Obama was a 'different' kind of politician is a stone cold fool.

If you like the democrats, and the democratic agenda (Which I do) then vote for Obama (I will), But don't vote for the guy because he is more honest or different cause that is just a farce. This ad is as dirty as any ad ever aired in American politics from Willie Horton on down to Bill Clinton = A racist. Its a joke.

"A president actually standing up to filthy racist war mongering fascist secretly hidden hideous NAZIS" -- I thought this was a joke until I read the rest of the post. You are doing more disservice to yourselves than you realize. In fact much of this garbage is sending civil rights back a generation instead of moving forward. Your lack of tact, decorum, and common courtesy and decency will only harm racial progress made in this great county, "I've always been proud of!"

Obama: "A president actually standing up to filthy racist war mongering fascist secretly hidden hideous NAZIS?" Which presidential candidate in history has had balls to attack these radio popular shock joks like rush hannity oreilly savage(shud be hung from a strip pole) other than obama? ANSWER: NOBODY. He is the true face of change, and attacking him on this ad is about as ludicrous as believing the slanderous ad mccain ran in SPANISH AS WELL. So 75% of repubs are riled up by my comments and 50% of those wanna kick my ass? Well I dare u. Put ur name and number in these comments, I'll do exactly the same in response and see who backs down. U punks think u are THE CHOSEN ONES deserving to be in this country, u'll also get ur ass anti semitized. (fill in the details) OBAMA HAS GUTS, IS BRAVE, CALLS IT FOR WUT IT IS AND RESPONDS WITH ACCURATE ADS THAT U STUPID REPUBERTYLICANS KNOW FOR A FACT AND STILL REFUSE TO BACK HIM. WELL, SINCE I KNOW BARAK WON'T ENDORSE THIS MESSAGE, I AM ON HIS SIDE AND MAKE SURE HE BECOMES THE PRESIDENT AND ATTACK U AT UR LOW LEVELS TO MAKE A POINT.

The problem with this ad was that OBAMA endorsed it implying it was MCCain thoughts about the Mexican people. Clearly MCCain would never think that way, perhaps Rush would but MCCain would not endorse such horrible language. Nobama is getting so desperate it is not funny, would say and do filthy things such as this, is uncalled for.....

That was an EXACT QUOTE of Limbaughs remarks. He said those exact words, while mocking Mexicans.

People claiming otherwise either haven't heard the clip or are simply lying.

I was wrong!!! Barak is not the change he has pontificated about. I was wrong and I am sorry. I am requesting my donation money back, because this guy is not good for America.

Obama has become a very divisive force that is tearing the country apart. First, obama divided my party, now obama is dividing my country.

OBAMA STOP BEING DIVISIVE AND STEP DOWN - FOR THE GOOD OF THE USA.

Posted by: Liberal for USA | September 19, 2008 5:08 PM

What the hell! This piece was horrendous. Even two minutes of background research on the web would have shown that the Limbaugh comments were taken grossly out of context. Limbaugh did NOT call Mexicans "stupid and unqualified" and his comment to "Shut your mouth or get out" was a clear and obvious reference to Mexican Immigration laws.

Ed O'Keefe is clearly either dishonest or incompetent, and Barak Obama is showing himself to be yet another dishonest, vile, do-whatever-it-takes-to-win politician.

So...we as Republicans can dish it but can't take it huh?

My fellow Republicans make me SICK.

I've been a Republican all my life; but now I have realized that the Republican's actions have distorted God's true message as we have succumbed to greed, gluttony and sin.

I'm a Christian and I take my religion very seriously...I hate those who are wicked to the poor and support the greedy pigs who associate with the filth in the White House today.

I am not a huge fan of Obama, but he is the only one who can restore this country to what GOD intended it to be!

You're an idiot if you think he is a Muslim by the way.

Obama's message of a new way in politics is becoming more and more evident that it is just a charade to get elected. This ad is so race-baitingly lie-loaded... I can't believe Sen. Menendez would endorse Sen. Obama's lying to get elected. McCain stuck his neck out for the immigrant community, that's a fact. and he should be commended for it, not lied about as if he was with those he opposed.

Posted by: Obamacrat for McCain | September 19, 2008 2:23 PM

Another Obama lie, this time on immigration.

Illegal immigration - First Obama opposed cracking down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants, now he supports it.

Obama has a long history of dirty politics in Chicago, in the Senate, with Hillary and now McCain. He is without a doubt the dirtiest, most corrupt politician in recent times.

WASHINGTON POST PROMOTES OBAMA "RACIST" ATTACK AD
WITHOUT ANY INFORMATION ABOUT HOW FALSE IT IS

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/the-trail/2008/09/17/obama_invokes_rush_limbaugh_in.html

THE POST PUSHES OBAMA'S RACIST FALSE ATTACK ADS AS IF TRUE

The Washington Post has put up and described Barack Obama's racist ad making blatant lies and false accusations about John McCain and immigration policies. The ad takes soundbites out of context from the Rush Limbaugh radio show, then puts them out there as if they were John McCain's words and as if John McCain supported Rush Limbaugh's anti-immigrant views.

FROM THE FACT CHECK DESK
Obama's New Spanish Language TV Ad Es Erróneo
by ABC News Political Punch

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has launched a new Spanish-language TV ad that seeks to paint Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., as anti-immigrant, even tying the Republican to his longtime conservative talk-radio nemesis Rush Limbaugh.

As first reported by the Washington Post, Obama's ad features a narrator saying: "They want us to forget the insults we’ve put up with…the intolerance…they made us feel marginalized in this country we love so much."

The screen then shows these two quotes from Limbaugh:

“…stupid and unskilled Mexicans”
—Rush Limbaugh

"You shut your mouth or you get out!”
—Rush Limbaugh

The narrator then says, “John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote…and another, even worse, that continues the policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families. John McCain…more of the same old Republican tricks.”

There are some real factual problems with this ad, which is titled “Dos Caras,” or two faces.

First of all, tying Sen. McCain – especially on the issue of immigration reform – to Limbaugh is unfair.

Limbaugh opposed McCain on that issue. Vociferously. And in a larger sense, it’s unfair to link McCain to Limbaugh on a host of issues since Limbaugh, as any even occasional listener of his knows, doesn’t particularly care for McCain.

Second, the quotes of Limbaugh’s are out of context.

Railing against NAFTA in 1993, Limbaugh said, "If you are unskilled and uneducated, your job is going south. Skilled workers, educated people are going to do fine 'cause those are the kinds of jobs NAFTA is going to create. If we are going to start rewarding no skills and stupid people, I'm serious, let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do -- let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work."

Not one of his most eloquent moments, to be sure, but his larger point was that NAFTA would mean that unskilled stupid Mexicans would be doing the jobs of unskilled stupid Americans.

The second quote is totally unfair. In 2006, Limbaugh was mocking MEXICAN LAW [not saying "shut your mouth or get out" himself], ...

[Mocking Mexican Laws:]

“And another thing: You don't have the right to protest. You're allowed no demonstrations, no foreign flag waving, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our President or his policies. You're a foreigner: shut your mouth or get out! And if you come here illegally, you're going to jail."

THE OBAMA AD THAT THE POST PUSHES MISREPRESENTS
THE COMMENT: "SHUT YOUR MOUTH OR GET OUT!"
AS IF IT WERE RUSH LIMBAUGH SPEAKING OUT THAT WAY TO
LATINO IMMIGRANTS ON THE AIR, & THAT LIMBAUGH WAS
SPEAKING FOR JOHN MCCAIN

Posted by: KRXAhal | September 18, 2008 11:12 PM

Wow, another non-critique of an Obama ad. Other than the Johnson "daisies" ad and the NAACP "Bird" ad, this is the most disgusting ad I've ever seen. Every fact was a lie...not just a bad opinion.

McCain was one of the Senators pushing comprehensive immigration reform (McCain/Kennedy), and Rush was very vocal against it. The quotes are completely out of context. They've been cover in prior comments, so I won't be specific.

Remember, Obama was going to change the tone....BS. Obama is a "community activist" trained by the likes of Saul Alinsky who wrote "Rules for Radicals." He believed in agitation as a method to their madness. Alinsky was a card carrying member of the communist party. So was Frank Davis, another mentor. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor of 20 years, is a leader of the Black Nationalist movement.

Obama now is deliberately trying to squelch free speech by overwhelming radio programs with a call to action against WGN (and probably other stations). Obama called to day for his supporters to "argue and get in their face."

So much to a new kind of politician. Welcome to the "Chicago Machine."

The press won't do their job, and they're in the tank for Obama. WaPO, like so many others, are without integrity....without professionalism.

Posted by: Mark | September 18, 2008 9:34 PM

husseins ad is based on lies...i'll give just one example as liberals hate the truth.

Rush Limbaugh:

"Everybody's making immigration proposals these days, let me add mine to the mix. Call it the Limbaugh Laws. First, you emigrate to our country you have to speak the native language, you have to be a professional or an investor, no unskilled workers allowed. Also, there will be no special bilingual programs in the schools with the Limbaugh Laws, no special ballots for elections, no government business will be conducted in your language. Foreigners will not have the right to vote or hold political office. If you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled to welfare or food stamps or other government goodies. You can come if you invest here an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If not, stay home. But if you want to buy land, it will be restricted: no waterfront, for instance, and as a foreigner, you have to relinquish individual rights to the property. And another thing, you don't have the right to protest. You're allowed no demonstrations, no foreign flag waving, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. You're a foreigner. Shut your mouth or get out. If you come here illegally, you're going to jail. Now, you think the Limbaugh Laws are harsh? Well, every one of the laws I just mentioned are actual laws of Mexico today. That's how the Mexican government handles immigrants to their country. Yet Mexicans come here illegally and protest in our streets. How do you say, double standard in Spanish? How about, no mas?"

Posted by: gaelicism_1 | September 18, 2008 9:14 PM

HA HA HA!!!!!!!
FINALLY, LIMBAUGH IS GETTING WHAT HE DESERVES! AS A MEXICAN AMERICAN, I AM SO TIRED OF RUSH CONTINUALLY PUTTING DOWN HISPANICS. RUSH IS A REPUBLICAN, MCCAIN IS A REPUBLICAN. RUSH BEING TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT. OH NO!!!!

THE LATIN PEOPLE ARE VERY UPSET, IN FACT THEY HAVE BEEN VERY UPSET FOR A LONG TIME.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T SPEAK SPANISH, THIS AD IS SO BAD FOR RUSH/MCCAIN. WHEN YOU TRANSLATE RUSH'S WORDS INTO SPANISH, IT SOUNDS SO MUCH WORSE IN SPANISH THAN IN ENGLISH. ALL THE SPANISH PEOPLE IN MY COMMUNITY ARE TALKING ABOUT IT, AND THEY ARE NOT HAPPY. THIS COULD COST MCCAIN THE ELECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: gloriaza | September 18, 2008 7:55 PM

The ad is factual! Rush Limbaugh has been saying some awful things. I still remember his appearance on May 5 when he appeared on Fox News for five minutes to discuss the presidential race and managed to make an offensive comment. Limbaugh called Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D), who is Hispanic, a "shoe shine guy." Alex Nogales, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, blasted Limbaugh for uttering "the same kind of nasty, bigoted, racist type comment that has become so prevalent in today's society, as practiced by Lou Dobbs, as practiced by Hannity, O'Reilly..." Racial slurs, particularly fueled against Hispanics, has found a home on right-wing radio, which claims 91 percent of radio airwaves. The nation's leading Hispanic advocacy group, National Council of La Raza, launched a campaign earlier this year decrying right-wing radio for its "rhetoric that demonizes immigrants and Hispanic Americans."

Is it fair to link the GOP to hate radio? Well, they sure have profited from it. Does the GOP condone hate radio? That's a question I'd love to hear the GOP talk about. But don't hold your breath. I think hate radio radio is a convenient medium that has allowed them to have it both way and get away for it...until now. Enough!

Posted by: marniebowen | September 18, 2008 7:50 PM

I forgot to state that I don't feel that Rush or MCCain would speak to their dogs in that manner. It was really baddddd....
People read the writing on the wall, Obama would say and do whatever it takes to win. I come from a Hispanic background my family and I are disgusted and will not vote for OBama. We were but not now. Obama is saying very many negative things, and sounds desperate.

Posted by: cecimo1 | September 18, 2008 7:08 PM

What Obama endorsed was totally insulting and disgusting. I cannot even believe that Rush could say such a disgusting thing. Hocico, means pig snout.....I Know McCain would not say such a terrible thing. I am Hispanic, but Obama is beginning to frighten me....

Posted by: cecimo1 | September 18, 2008 7:00 PM

I think we should split North America in half. Those of us who believe in the values that made us great - self reliance, hard work, personal responsibility, the ability - the right to benefit from the fruits of ones labour, maximium personal choice and minimal regulation, personal property rights, a basic safety net for those truly unable to look after themselves through no fault of their own, and standing up for what we believe would move to one half. The leader wouldn't matter since success would be virtually assured no matter who led.

The others, those who suck their thumbs waiting for a handout, the entitled, the arrogant elitist philosophers of socialism, the lazy, the mediocre, and the passive acceptors of easy living, and who believe in a safety hammock for everybody, whether they need it or not, could move to the other where they would throw all of their earnings (if any) into a pot and share them equally while doing as little as possible, led by armies and armies of unionized civil servants, while all singing koom-by-ahhh. Barack Obama would certainly rule here. He has no real-world experience, but it wouldn't matter for this group of people, since there would be no hope for any sort of "success" in any case.

Everyone would be happy.

Posted by: slgam | September 18, 2008 6:37 PM

Rush said that in the context of MEXICO's immigration law. As in, immigrants there are not allowed to protest or wave foreign flags, so in MEXICO it's "You're a foreigner, either shut your mouth or get out." This was April 6th of 2006. Rush is again taken out of context to smear the right.

Posted by: Maxwell97 | September 18, 2008 6:31 PM

EVERYONE WHO HAS POSTED HERE OWES IT TO THEMSELVES TO FIND OUT JUST WHAT RUSH WAS ACTUALLY SAYING. HE STATING THE ATTITUDE OF THE MEXICAN GOVT TO IMMIGRANTS NOT HIS.
THIS IS A LITMUS TEST TO SEE JUST HOW DELUDED THE LIBS ARE. FIND THE TRUTH BEHIND THE STATEMENTS.

Posted by: dARREN | September 18, 2008 6:27 PM

As Obama has presided over a race war in Chicago that has pitted Black gangs against Hispanic gangs, and caused more white flight, it is appropriate that Obama's race baiting will lead to more disharmony in this country. Obama is truly a racist hate mongerer, something he learned at the heals of the ultimate bigots Reverend Jeremiah Wright. The chickens are coming home to roost in Obama's demented brain. I didn't think he could be so low. I wonder if the WaPo will find time to editorialize on this hate speech, lies and distortions.

What a tool SJ is. Where were the blacks and Latinos in the Clinton White House? Federico Pena (father of Denver Int'l Airport) was his transportation secretary. Henry Cisneros was his HUD secretary. Ron Brown was secretary of Commerce for a period of time. Bill Richardson was secretary of energy. And Colin Powell remained head of the joint chiefs of staff in the Clinton first term. Need I go on or does SJ need more history taught to him?

i suppose the lefties who believe that only republicans lie won't be honest and note that obama is lying thru his teeth in this ad and therefore, the lying leftie democrat from new jersey quoted in this article is also making political comments on lies. how can you lying lefties sleep at night, accusing conservatives and/or republicans of lying and then do the very same thing yourselves?? they call that hypocrisy, tho i know you really do not care.

Posted by: robert | September 18, 2008 5:27 PM

Do you think most Hispanics who are able to vote want lots of illegal Mexicans here? No, they don't. So the ad is not well-thought-out. It assumes Hispanics are a monolith and support illegal immigration.

I love the libs... the throw out the blanket statement that all republicans are racist... yet, where were the black and latino members of the Clinton administration? Where were the democrats when the republicans were pushing for civil rights?

It's sad how some folks will just parrot what they're told to say. Mindlessly repeating whatever the DNC spoon feeds them.

Heck, just two years ago, McCain was a great guy and Hillary was going to save us all.

Obviously, Rush's strong following is here in force. I listened today, and funny how he never mentioned that McCain did the first, misleading ad? He asked, "What kind of politician would do this?" McCain, that's what kind. It's too bad Obama had to stoop to his level, but Kerry didn't and he lost. McCain started these lies, going back weeks now, so stop whining.

Posted by: lazylou | September 18, 2008 4:30 PM

the two biggest people in the Republican party that wanted immigration reform were McCain and Bush. It was the American people that vetoed this bill by calling in mass to congress. Obama is not change, he's the same old politics as usually, lie to the people and hope they don't figure it out. I find this whole ad is slander and offensive.

Just because someone says enough is enough and we need to stop this never ending influx of illegal latinos comeing into America at a rate in the millions/year (the majority of which are from 1 country-mexico). 18 million illegals of one group is to much but forget that, 18 million illegal entries of everyone combined is to much. End of story - and especially end the benefits. If your illegal - you don't get benefits. And you should be deported. On one side, I do think that those who have been here for a set time and can prove it beyond copies of falsified documents (because as a citizen i cant go through the courts with falsied documents) perhaps something less than deportation but on teh other side NO Ammnesty and YES you will be fined and made accountable for every tax return, benefit or anything else that has been used or taken, going back for the entire amount of time here "illegally" just like, as a citizen I would be held accountable for.If teh IRS can audit me -you bet every illegal should be audited, fingerprinted and processed prior to any decission on if that person has acted in a way that they are a benefit to this country. And that benefit will not be descriminated against on handicap or sex or religion but on your actions.

Yup. Yup. It's true. See?

As a Democrat and Latino I was insulted by Obamas ad.
The fact that he feels he can lie to us and use us in such a manner is dishonorable.
Latinos were not amused by his pandering and will be thinking twice about whether we should vote Democrat or not.
This advertising is not being embraced by the Latino as expected. Most that I have spoken with find this ad and the association it impies disgusting.
Obama will be losing ground fast in our community especially since the trust level toward him is marginal even though our majority is Democrat.
The only Democrat that we trusted was Senator Clinton, and we were trying to embrace Obama but his latest ad was an insult to the intelligence of Latinos everywhere.

"I'd love to ask some of you, one of one, what Socialism is..what it stands for and why you are afraid of it. We have never been and will never be a Socialist state and right now, as the 'Free Market' shows it needs the government to help keep it honest is not the time to start going on about Socialists anyway."

The free market did not create this mess, the government did, and now the government's answer to the mess they made is more regulation. This started with an act created by Jimmy Carter that Clinton in 92 expanded. It essentially said that bank lending practices were discrimatory (based on a study that later proved to be wrongly interpreted) and sat laws in place that kept banks from lending to high risk applicants or face fines. That's were sub prime lending started. So a bunch of loans were given to people who couldn't possibly pay them back, thanks to the government. Then there is the fannie Mae Freddy mac fiasco, a pet project of the democrats, abusing their powers to make themselves rich, these people should be prosecuted, and Chris Dodd should be the first one. Instead the ex pres of one of those companies is at the head of the B.O.'s campaign to find a vice president. And isn't it funny that B.O. was the second biggest beneficiary for receiving campaing funds from these government run agencies, while Bush and McCain has tried to reform these agencies and the democrats put a stop to that. So that is why we are in the mess we are in now, government intervening where it shouldn't. Government messes things up, they don't fix the problems, they make them worse. If you want to know what is wrong with socialism go compare the economies of European countries with the U.S. You will find much higher taxes, unemployment, and inflation than you will find in the U.S. Capitalism keeps those socialist countries running. Which is why John McCain said the fundamentals of the economy are strong, they are, this is something that can be overcome, but most likely not with more government involvement. They need to get completely out of it since they caused the mess in the first place.

Actually, African-Americans were also among those opposed to immigration for precisely the reasons you gave. And weren't BOTH THEY and the WASPs right? And they didn't offer welfare benefits and social services to immigrants the way we do now, not to mention Affirmative Action benefits that many Third World immigrants are able to take advantage of. Think it's any accident that many Blacks in US Ivy League colleges these days aren't truly the sons and daughters of slavery but immigrants and foreign students, just as Obama's dad was? That the housing bubble in part was caused by mortgage lenders eager to go after new customers at the behest of a government that had a policy of expanding home ownership among "minority" borrowers, whether or not they meet prudent lending standards, including illegal aliens?

If they love this country so much, then why are the candidates speaking to them in Spanish and not English? After all, to vote they must be citizens, and to be a citizen, one generally needs to know English enough to carry on a basic conversation.

For that matter, one of the "special intersts" that George Bush has pandered to since his Presidency is HISPANICS. Now, if Obama were to CHANGE THAT, I might even vote for him.

Never mind the fact that Limbaugh was interpreting Mexican immigration laws, not his own opinion of Mexicans.

Some Government regulation might be fine, but the biggest problem in this country the last 60 years is we have regulated more and more and more. The country and the economy has always been strengthend when there is less regulation and government involvement, just look at history.
As far as socilaism, you have no idea what socialism means. It does not mean some regulations. It is a precursor towards true class division and communism. It always has been. They can call it being "progressive" or "liberlism" or "socialism" but it all leads down the same path. We are founded on the exact opposite ideals. We are for the individual and property rights and the right to life and the pursuit of happiness. The far left is for groups (blacks, latinos, women, gays, etc...) and class warfare. They have alot of you fooled. The more they segregate people into groups the more rights we lose.
WAKE UP.

I fail to understand why people just want to open our borders wide and let whomever wants to come into our country come in and vote and have all the rights of an American citizen. Things were just a little different when people came over on the Mayflower, folks. Later on, there was a good REASON why a citizenship process was developed. Make the citizens learn our national language. Make them learn the history of our country. Make them put out some effort to be called an American--then they'll love and appreciate the country. They won't be waving placards and banners around hollering about how much they hate it. BOOOOO Obama. Running those Spanish ads is just wrong. This is an English speaking country, and those who want to be here need to learn the language and have some American pride. If you don't have American pride, go back where you came from and dont let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

The 'invisible hand' of the market doesn't exist. There are very real hands, in powerful positions that don't want free, open and honest markets and yet many conservatives somehow think these people are going to police themselves? I think the proof is in the pudding...they won't.
The wealthy in this country have had a free ride the last 7 years while the country has been at war and run up trillions of dollars in debt, and now, unfortunately, they will have to pay up. Bush was like the one parent that says Yes to the kids and buys them a new bike and Obama is the one who will have to explain to them that we can't afford a new bike and return it to the store. It will be no different with McCain. He will have to raise taxes. Remember Bush 41 and his "Read My Lips" comment? Well, Reagan is remembered as the angle who cut taxes, but the country can only run for so long like that and the 'trickle-down' theory has, once again, proved it is just that: A Theory.

Interesting that Obama's campaign feels the need to attack Rush Limbaugh, and run ads in Spanish.

Limbaugh is not a candidate in any election, and the majority of voters speak ENGLISH.

The same can be said of McCain's campaign...why run ads in Spanish ? The majority of voters speak ENGLISH.

In fact the majority of Americans speak ENGLISH, and to run ads in Spanish only irritates, and turns off, the voters.

If either side wants to attract immigrants to their campaign, then be honest and have ads in Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, etc.

After-all, he hates the US the way it is...all filled with "rich white folks" who hate the poor and blacks...that is why 94% of blacks will vote Obama. They certainly aren't racist are they? In fact, blacks are proving they are racist and they cannot deny it, they have the same opportunities to succeed as everyone, but choose to blame "whitey" if it gets too hard, or they fail...and they just can't stop wearing all the bling, dropping out of school, doing drugs, and listening to "their hip-hop", surely they are aiming high with their lives!?! For example, who is greater P-Diddy or George Washington Carver...most blacks wouldn't even know the later; so sad, they are their own worst enemy, and see their color as others don't.

Only that he was a community organizer. If he cannot boast of his past accomplishments its little wonder no one else is either, and certainly does not give one confidence in voting for him.

It's a strange thing, but all citizens (those who are allowed to vote) have to know some English. Is the Democratic Party targeting non-citizens who they know will be able to vote because no one checks at the DMV whether they are citizens when they register to vote? When they complain that showing ID when you vote is discriminatory, how did those people register? You used to actually prove you were a citizen!

Illegal immigrants, are, just that, Illegal!!! Criminals!! Now you have Obami the swammy asking them to perform even more illegal acts by voting for him.

Yes, I know .... they came here to work and make a better life for themselves. That is all well a good, when it is done LEGALLY!!! But, by doing so illegally, they are no better than the drug dealers that 'are trying to make their lives better', while poisoning our children. And where do most of those drugs come from? Same place(s)!

One of the biggest reason that we have an ILLEGAL immigration problem is the bleeding heart liberals who think that they can fix the woes of this world. They will do anything they can to fix everyone else's problems (including giving illegals a safe haven on the U.S. taxpayers' dime). I do not feel the need to teach my children spanish in the public schools (at the expense of the taxpayer's again) to make these illegals feel more at home or comfortable. First of all, they are not 'at home', and I want to see them so damnned un'comfortable' that they will want to learn the language and become legal citizens or to go back to their real homes in whatever country they come from (Mexico, Honduras, etc).

Illegal is just that .... Illegal, criminal, AGAINST THE LAW!!!! And now BHO wants them to vote (illegally) for him!!!! What message is he really sending?

Your paper has blased JM for his ads about OB providing sex ed to Kindergarteners and his comments about the lipstick. Well why don't you do your homework. It doesn't take too much effort to see that (1) the language of the state law OB supported does include sex education for K-12; and (2) the audience where OB made the lipstick statement sure seemed to think he was attacking Palin.

Why don't you guys get real and start doing your jobs and start asking OB the hard questions and expressing dismay when his ads certainly cross the line with outright distortions.

Instead of invoking Rush, Obama should invoke his Yellow Democratic Congressmen to stay in session and deal with the country's problems. Typical Libs when something gets tough they run and hide.

Obama's $60 Billion Iraq Negotiation Delay

A reader notes, it's rather disingenuous for Obama to complain that America is spending $10 billion a month in Iraq and then turn around and tell the Iraqi government to delay final negotiations on the Status of Force Agreement and the Strategic Framework Agreement with the U.S. government until January.

The time between Obama's meeting with Iraqi Foreign Minister on July 22 of this year and when the next president takes office on January 20 of next year is six months. Using Obama's own numbers, holding off the way he wishes will cost the United States an extra $60 billion.

I wasn't aware that Rush Limbaugh was running for POTUS. If Obama is going to campaign against McCain using guilt by association, bring it on! The Obama has long associated with and mentored by known terrorists and socialists. They are the very type of people many immigrants are coming here to avoid - legally and illegally. The worst thing is that the WashPost and the rest of media are aware of Obama's friends and mentors, but refuse to investigate the background of their influence on the medias favorite candidate.

Rush Limbaugh has already forgotten more than Obama will ever know in his life total. Rush is the most intelligent political person in the country and there are more than 20 million people that know it. That's why they listen to him everyday. Obama will lose this election by 15 points and hopefully that will shut up all of the liberals who want to destroy our great country.

Illegals are not just Hispanics, they are of all races (can I still use races or is that no longer politically correct?). We are seeing the invasion and take over of our country by Hispanics for now, but in silence we are actually being taken over by those of the muslim faith (especially those that will not stick up for this great country). Last night I came home and there was a man sitting on the sidewalk of my front yard. He was beating himself on his back with branches or a whip. Wow, what a beautiful sight that was. He probably bought his wife a new burka and it was the wrong shade of black.

--McCain is going to try to give all illegals amnesty once in office. How can it be possible that illeglas will not vote for McCain?--

It can be possible when the establishment illegal immigrants tell the newer arrivals that they should vote democrat if they want even bigger handouts, biggers freebies, bigger accommodations and acknowledgements at the expense of American culture, and less restrictions on illegal entry to this country with more lax enforcement of existing immigration laws for those already here. And that's just what they can look forward to before the democrats successfully "change" our immigration laws to make them more welcoming to illegals in the first place.

Viva la reconquista!

Charlie Rangel is a good example of what kind of control we have over Fannie Mae and the others. The democrat gentleman that put $90.000.00 in his freezer and is still working for the government taking our taxpayer dollars may also be a friend to the mortgage market. Chris Dodd and Obamy are the top two recipients of donations by Fannie. Obama's vp pick (I forget his name) is one of the prime suspects in the high interest rates and corruption in the credit card market.

This is DUMB. Yet another ad the Obama camp didn't think through. One of the hardest times I have supporting McCain is that he supports Amnesty. Now, I will vote for McCain because of both Palin and that he isn't a socialist like Obama- but this is just ridiculous. I called McCain's office many times last year during the Amnesty debates in Congress and was so mad at him- still kinda am. That's why he earned the name McAmnesty. What a stupid ad. Just like the no email ad.

'Bama's campaign is invoking the specter of racism into this campaign as an excuse when they loose. A month ago they were planning a coronation. But as the voters begin to realize he is an empty suit, their tone has changed.

Let's face it, if 'Bama had not entered into this race, he would have been a minor league back bencher in the Senate, not know for anything of substance. He has not worked on any bill in particular and voted "present" 130 times in the Illinois legislature. There is no there, there.

I am so sick of supporting illegal’s. They are one reason our country is in such bad shape. They use our educational system, hospitals and don't pay a dime in taxes. We need to either get them out of the country or put in a flat tax to make them pay into the system. If someone is in this country legally and is eligible to vote, then he would speak English. I'm sure the Obama Camp is setting up illegal’s to vote thus pandering to them. Rush is right, he can take care of himself and stand up to Obama. Obama is an elitist, a Marxist, a racist and an angry man who is supported by terriorist. And to the "person known as FINALLY" wow you are one angry fag.

its lame that Obama is making Rush LImbaghs politics the same as McCain's. Especially since i don't believe Rush was a McCain supporter to begin with...but i guess people would actually have to listen to him in order to really understand that.

Posted by: jetlidragonfighter19 | September 18, 2008 6:34 AM

In 2006, Limbaugh was mocking Mexican law, and he wrote:

The US Immigration: The Limbaugh Laws
by Rush Limbaugh

Everybody's making immigration proposals these days. Let me add mine to the mix. Call it The Limbaugh Laws:

First: If you immigrate to our country, you have to speak the native language. You have to be a professional or an investor; no unskilled workers allowed. Also, there will be no special bilingual programs in the schools with the Limbaugh Laws. No special ballots for elections. No government business will be conducted in your language. Foreigners will not have the right to vote or hold political office.

If you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled to welfare, food stamps, or other government goodies. You can come if you invest here: an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If not, stay home. But if you want to buy land, it'll be restricted. No waterfront, for instance. As a foreigner, you must relinquish individual rights to the property.

And another thing: You don't have the right to protest. You're allowed no demonstrations, no foreign flag waving, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our President or his policies. you're a foreigner: shut your mouth or get out! And if you come here illegally, you're going to jail.

You think the Limbaugh Laws are harsh? Well, every one of the laws I just mentioned are actual laws of Mexico today! That' how the Mexican government handles immigrants to their country. Yet Mexicans come here illegally and protest in our streets!

How do you say "double standard" in Spanish? How about: "No mas!"

Posted by: Paul Tramell | September 18, 2008 6:03 AM

Anyone that thinks there is not racism in our country is a fool. Non-Union contruction contractors pay their hispanic and black employees less than their white counterparts doing the same job. Fact of life. Pushing the venom against illegals only brings on more attacks against legal latinos. Fact of life. The Republicans always play the race card for votes, as in McCain's MLK vote. Hillary did the same come March and it cost her a spot on the ticket. The MLK dream is closer, but there is still a lot of work to do.

Posted by: Jimbo | September 18, 2008 5:02 AM

Why are there Spanish language ads to begin with?

The Obama folks are trying to interject racism into the election for a reason...

A convenient move by the American black man.

But people are not as concerned about Obama's race but about how he thinks. Are we a racist country? Yep. We only see red and blue.

If your black and a Dem: that's good.
If your black and a Republican: that's bad.
If your a woman and a Dem: that's good.
If your a woman and Republican: that's bad.

Never mind how you think...

I Have a Dream... One day we will not be judged by the color of our Party but by the content of our character.

Many of us cannot change the color of our party because we think a certain way and we have wrold views that dictate the philosophies in how we approach government.

As for now, 2008, breaking the double standard will have to wait for brighter day to reach equality.

Right now, the forces that prevail in the media are too strong. They tell what to think and how to think and when to think anyway. What color are you?

Posted by: David | September 18, 2008 1:38 AM

Obama took the 2nd most campaign money from Fannie Mae. Senator Dodd (Democrat) was number one. Obama also voted no to a Bill that McCain put forth in 2005, that would have stopped this mess. Obama has done nothing to stop this in the last 2 years as a US Senator, other than help make the mess.

No way I can trust Obama to fix anything. Omama will ruin America with his William Ayres, Sol Alinski, Acorn Group, and Tony Rezko corrupt Chicago style politics.

Can we drop the politically correct garbage and refer to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS as they are...ILLEGAL. And for those that continue to argue that they are simply doing jobs US citizens won't...enough already...there is more then ample evidence that many are working high paying jobs..over $50k/year using stolen SS numbers and identifications....and yes, I have first hand experience with this.

So we may look the other way on crossing the border, but it is time to clean up the trash and start prosecuting criminals for what they are.......

AND, by the way, time to pass a Constitutional Amendment that does NOT make children born to illegals in this Country automatic citizens. Then we don't have to worry about splitting up the illegal families that are deported...solve at least one problem.

The pandering of both Republicans and Democrats on this issue is nauseating. Perhaps a third party candidate running on this issue alone could help things...certainly help our economy.

Let's hope that during the debates Obama will clearly state his proposals to deal with undocumented immigration. His website is useless:

"Obama and Biden want to preserve the integrity of our borders. He supports additional personnel, infrastructure and technology on the border and at our ports of entry."

From this, you might think Obama supports the border fence and has promised to increase funding for the border patrol and border surveillance technology. You would be wrong.

"Obama and Biden will remove incentives to enter the country illegally by cracking down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants."

From this, you might think Obama supports requirements for employers to check social security numbers against federal databases and notify the feds of mismatches, providing names and addresses. You would be wrong.

"Obama and Biden support a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens."

From this, you might think Obama supports returning undocumented immigrants to their home countries to wait for their citizenship applications to be processed and approved. You would be wrong.

"Obama and Biden believe we must fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill."

From this, you might think that Obama is ignorant of the laws of supply and demand, and the effect on wages of importing Third World workers. You would be right.

Can't Rush sue for defamation or distortion or something? This was a packaged LIE! Shame on Obama. How offensive and ignorant he is - I will not vote for a stupid man. It has nothing to do with race. I also consider him callus - his born alive stance of - ok to murder the born alive baby now - and then try to mis-characterize his own vote. Had nothing to do with Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade was protected in the bill. Everybody gets a tax reduction. Who is paying and when. Socialism does not work. Lose your rights to everything. A community organizer that had zero results. Spent his entire senate career running for the presidency. Then he picks Biden - for his vast foreign policy experience - a man whom has never gotten a foreign policy stance right. Don't even get me started on his racist remarks. Oh - oh - that's just good ol' Joe - ha, ha. Yea - right. Proven Plagiarizer. Then there is their desire for the fairness doctrine, because they fear free speech. What about Obama's associates - Wright, Ayers and Rezko? There are a million reasons to not vote the dem ticket - a million reasons to vote McCain/Palin. Trooper was and is a criminal - what is the problem? None that a sane person can see. The guy admitted he tasered his 10 year old stepson. This alone qualifies for dismissal. Add drinking in his patrol car and death threats to Mr. Heath. These are just the things he was already admitted to and was convicted of - wonder how much we don't know about this guy. McCain has worked with dems and Republicans to make this a better country and continues to do so. People - get a clue. Lower taxes, more of our own oil, I live in Texas - the drilling is non-invasive - animals graze next to wells, clean and safe nuclear energy, no more Charlie Rangels getting away with cheating, maintaining national security, clean up Washington, preserving your individual freedoms.
Bush 43 had a higher grade point average than that of Kerry. Obama can't give a speech without a teleprompter. He is extremely inarticulate. Several of his "speeches" come directly from movie scripts - shocking! Plagiarism? Considering his connections to the Hollywood elite....
I am just a mail carrier and union member - but, I am also a thinker. I don't want to live in a socialist, communist, marxist country. I live in a Democratic and capitalist society where we have prospered for a couple of centuries. Let's keep it up and protect ourselves.

Illegal immigration is a very real problem in America. I think we should have exactly the same immigration policy that Mexico has. What's good for them should be good for us.
Obama has turned out to quit the divisive individual and NOT the uniter he claims. Typical Democratic campaign tactics. Race baiting, class warfare, economic envy, pie in the sky promises. They just never change. Obama's campaign and VP pick are typical. Biden has been in the Senate longer than McCain and therefore a huge part of the problem Obama says he wants to change. At least McCain picked a real D.C. outsider and at least has a chance to actually change and reform D.C. Democrats talk, and talk and talk, and...

Obama’s Spectacular Failure as an Executive: Documented

Senator Barack Obama’s spectacular failure during his only known executive experience is now documented. We can read it for ourselves, however it is in a pdf format and as I attempted to upload it to this post, I got a “file corrupted’ message.

I’ve transcribed some highlights below, and you can view Parts 1 and 2 of the pdf here.

Background: Barack Obama was appointed Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation designed to increase learning and personal achievement skills in chosen school programs. Weatherman terrorist, William Ayers, is thought to have had a major role in choosing the untried Obama for the COB position. Ayers was an ex-officio board member. Obama and Ayers presided over a very powerful political duo: the CAC headed by Obama and The Collaborative, co-chaired by Ayers. The Annenberg Foundation donated approximately $50 million and another $50-$60 million came from matching funds. Obama-Ayers spent all the funding before the Challenge was shut-down or morphed into another Foundation, without Obama. Here’s the documented failed results of about $110 million

Begin notes from the pdf:
Since we are talking about Barack Obama’s leadership skills as an executive, there is this statement in The Chicago Annenberg Report [Page 37 Part 1]:

Structurally and politically, the Challenge had difficulty developing a close and productive working relationship with the CPS central administration. The relationship was tenuous at best; for the most part it was strained and at times it was antagonistic. Top system administrators did not fully trust the Challenge’s leadership….

The following is from Part 1, unless otherwise noted.

Report Title: The Chicago Annenberg Challenge: Successes, Failures, and Lessons for the Future Final Technical Report of the Chicago Annenberg Research Project

Executive Summary:

The Challenge’s “bottom line”…the Challenge had little impact on student outcomes. [Page 14]

…There were no statistically significant differences between Annenberg schools and non-Annenberg schools in rates of achievement gain. [Page 15]

Classroom behavior, students’ sense of self-efficacy, and social competence were weaker in 2001 than before the Challenge. Like student academic achievement, there were no statistically significant differences in these outcomes between Annenberg schools and non-Annenberg schools. [Page 15]

…Any improvements were much like those occurring in demographically similar non-Annenberg schools. [Page 15]

…Although some measures of organizational capacity were slightly stronger or weaker in 2001 than at the beginning of the Challenge, there was little net change. In all, the organizational capacity of Annenberg schools at the end of the Challenge looked much like it did at the beginning. [Page 16]

In 1998-1999, the CAC reports [page 27]:

Students in grades three through eight scoring at or above national norms on the ITBS [Iowa Tests of Basic Skills:

Reading: CAC 36% as compared to Chicago schools citywide 35%
Mathematics: CAC 43% as compared to Chicago schools citywide 42%

1993 Eighth Grade Graduates who:
Graduated from Chicago Public High School: 40% for both Annenberg Schools and CPS
Dropped out: Annenberg Schools 35%, CPS 36%
Left Public School: Annenberg Schools 35%, CPS 24%

Although Annenberg schools appeared to outperform non-Annenberg schools in some years at particular grade levels, the reverse appeared to occur in other years. None of these differences were statistically significant. [Page 55]

See an interesting chart on Page 57

Student Classroom Behavior. …In 2001, students in Annenberg schools were somewhat less inclined than in 1994 to respect each other, work well together, and help each other learn. They were somewhat less likely to report that students who do well in school are not made fun of; that students work together to solve problems; and they they get along well, care about each other, and treat each other with respect….[Page 59]

Focus on Student Learning. …increased slightly between 1994 and 1999 but then declined by 2001 so it was only slightly stronger than in 1994. In both 1994 and 2001, teachers in Annenberg schools were likely to agree but not strongly agree that their schools maximized instructional time, set high standards for student academic performance, had well-defined learning expectations for students, and made decisions based on what was best for students….[Page 84]

Comment on Parent and Community Involvement Page 90

Summary echoing much of the above on Page 112

Echoing Obama’s campaign rhetoric: broad goals, no strategies.

The second part of this report says that the Chicago Annenberg Challenge had “Broad Goals, Vague Strategies and lists this among the reasons for failure. [Page 8 - Report 2].

Lest we think the Annenbergs did not interact with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge:

…research project staff formally interviewed and spoke regularly with the Challenge’s Executive Director [Barack Obama], Program Director and Grants Manager. [Page 45]

Thanks to Riehl World View: CAC Doc Drop: Obama has Mare than Ayers to Worry About Now for the path to the documents PLUS MORE. Reihl World has screen shots of a businessman and board member’s evaluation that is a MUST-SEE. Here’s a portion: “The proposals, by and large, were awful.”

Posted by: NOBAMA | September 18, 2008 12:22 AM

Hey Chris in Austin, We are not afraid. And we love you, and are happy you are here if you are a fellow citizen. If you wish good fortune for all then please consider yourself included in the following appeal

All US citizens who seek to regain our country from the increasing shadow of a government and intellectual class out of control, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle to keep our country sovereign and free? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the Liberal Dividers for the last thirty years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those socialist like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of compromise and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of division and class warfare; the last arguments to which fascists resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this politically malicious array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission and tax our very breath? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has the Democratic machine the interests of any American, to assail our senses with this accumulation of hatred and lies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the elitist intellectuals have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last thirty years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, free thinking citizens, deceive ourselves. You self reliant masses, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne of compromise, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the burgeoning bureaucracy and corrupt politic. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional verbal violence, insult and taxes; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of their ivory towers! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must speak up! I repeat it, all you who yearn for a smaller less intrusive government and bright future for your children, we must speak up, march in a show of support! An appeal that the media cannot ignore and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a Liberal guard shall be stationed outside every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have taxed and regulated all the we own? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, marching in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of handouts and economic slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty! We must plan in September for marches and protests that will be uncomfortable for most of us. It is far too easy to say that we speak with our vote and our wallet. We must march in our khakis, our suits, our jeans and t-shirts, our dresses, our skirts, and yes, even our pants suits. We are true inclusive party, the quiet majority that diligently does our part to move this country forward each day in spite of the weight of the increasing government involvement every aspect of our live. Call your friends, and with them call theirs to gather together in public to let them know we are here and we will not allow any more. Yes it may be uncomfortable, but also invigorating and inspiring to stand in the open to withstand their certain derision. We will not hate, but we will no longer be quiet. In direct reply to our adversaries cry, we shall respond, ENOUGH!

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence. According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July. "He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview.

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion." "However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open." Zebari says.

Though Obama claims the US presence is "illegal," he suddenly remembered that Americans troops were in Iraq within the legal framework of a UN mandate. His advice was that, rather than reach an accord with the "weakened Bush administration," Iraq should seek an extension of the UN mandate. While in Iraq, Obama also tried to persuade the US commanders, including Gen. David Petraeus, to suggest a "realistic withdrawal date." They declined.

Obama has made many contradictory statements with regard to Iraq. His latest position is that US combat troops should be out by 2010. Yet his effort to delay an agreement would make that withdrawal deadline impossible to meet. Supposing he wins, Obama's administration wouldn't be fully operational before February - and naming a new ambassador to Baghdad and forming a new negotiation team might take longer still.

By then, Iraq will be in the throes of its own campaign season. Judging by the past two elections, forming a new coalition government may then take three months. So the Iraqi negotiating team might not be in place until next June. Then, judging by how long the current talks have taken, restarting the process from scratch would leave the two sides needing at least six months to come up with a draft accord. That puts us at May 2010 for when the draft might be submitted to the Iraqi parliament - which might well need another six months to pass it into law.

Any of you folks who feel that we are going to get change from either guy are crazy. Why don't you all get a mind of your own, gather your own ideas, and help sell them to the American people. It will take guts to change this country and we need to be the voice of change. If we can make a compelling case, the smart elected officials will feel out numbered and start to reflect our ideas and opinions if they want our votes. Our concerns haven't been important, shouldn't we demand that they are? Just thinking out loud.

He may NOT be American, since nobody can find his birth certificate in the USA.

Obama has bigger problems than McCain.
Obama has lied about EVERYTHING! And, he still does.

This ad that Senator Obama is running in Spanish in New Mexico, Florida, Nevada and Colorado is despicable and if this is his swing state strategy, I hope he loses by a landslide. The ad is inflammatory, offensive and untrue in linking Senator McCain to words allegedly spoken by Rush Limbaugh -- "Mexicanos, estupidos y no calificados" (Mexicans, stupid and unqualified)and "Callate la boca o largate (shut your mouth or get out)." Whatever Limbaugh is or is not or whatever he said or didn't say, it is defamatory to link Senator McCain who has been a stalwart supporter of humane immigration reform to such words. I wonder whether Senator Kennedy, who worked with Senator McCain is aware of this garbage and approves of it. There is no place in our country for such race and ethnic-baiting and divisive language. It will make it even more difficulty to resolve the very difficult immigration issues facing our country. Please take a stand on this and ask Senator Obama to withdraw this ad.

The Washington Post should run an editorial condeming this offensive political ad.

Given that the Washington Post is a newspaper, shouldn't you report on the accuracy of Obama's ad? Jake Tapper of ABC has already done so, and found that this ad is, to put it kindly, full of it. The quotes from Limbaugh (ugh--to have to defend Limbaugh) are distorted, and McCain's association with Limbaugh are greatly exaggerated.

In other words, this ad lies.

Posted by: Steve | September 17, 2008 11:34 PM

Barack Obama is pandering to the Hispanics; saying what he knows they want to hear. I wonder how many illegals will manage somehow to vote for him??? You can't believe what he says and there is no sound from the gut when he gives a speech like his heart is really in what he's saying; sounds like just words; no meaning. There was a movie made about all the killings on the border between Mexico and Texas. It's called "Borders". He spends too much time criticizing everything McCain says instead of "telling" us his plans for the country.

Ive lived on the border my whole life. From my observation hispanics dont trust black people (negros). Check out the prison & jail's (i have) in california, Obama has to commit desperate acts for the hispanic vote. Not only is he trying to hide his dual allegence to the muslim world and the jewish/catholic/christian world, he is also starting to state he is a chicago politico and knows how to play hard ball. Yet if we dare ask about his chicago days he says it has nothing to do with him (who was the terrorist guy he started a board with???; Who did Michelle Obama throw to the streets with her hospital board???))
Obama needs to be investigate as much as Palin has been. Let the news media know that Obama is running for president and the American people know nothing about him except for his smooth talk!
I cant belive that this election has become a popularity contesta. I dont drull over mcpalin but i definatly am not drulling over Obama. I have no idea who he is and where he came from. (Kenya, Indonesia, Hawaii, Chicago, Yale.) Who the hell knows the truth. I only feel comfortable with mccain cause I know where he was born and that he only has one birth certifacate.

Truthseeker: I'm not making myself a victim. ME AND MY FAMILY have been victims of racism simply by the fact of having a different last name or because our skin is brown. (Que por supuesto yo le digo es canela!) The senseless attacks that people like Limbaugh, Dobbs, Senator Sessions and others have started together with the propaganda of a few nativist groups out there are starting to increase hate towards hispanics. This debate is making me and my family less safe and I do not intend to stay idle and see many hate-mongers out there argument their lies while my FAMILIA HISPANA suffers the consequences in their everyday lives. So truthseeker you might ask me to just forget about it, this is just about illegals, oh but my friend, IT isn't. That is just the excuse.

"Tell a lie repeatedly enough and the fools will believe it to be the truth."
Adolph Hitler. Democrats are responsible for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Not so!
Sorry to burst the bubble of the brainwashed but here are the facts:

The Civil Rights bill was brought before Congress in 1963 and in a speech on television on 11th June, Kennedy pointed out that: "The Negro baby born in America today, regardless of the section of the nation in which he is born, has about one-half as much chance of completing high school as a white baby born in the same place on the same day; one third as much chance of completing college; one third as much chance of becoming a professional man; twice as much chance of becoming unemployed; about one-seventh as much chance of earning $10,000 a year; a life expectancy which is seven years shorter; and the prospects of earning only half as much."

Kennedy's Civil Rights bill was still being debated by Congress when he was assassinated in November, 1963. The new president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, who had a poor record on civil rights issues, took up the cause. His main opponent was his long-time friend and mentor, Richard B. Russell, who told the Senate: "We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our (Southern) states." Russell organized 18 Southern Democratic senators in filibustering this bill.
The Republican Senators held their ground and prevailed over the Democratic leadership championed by Sen. Byrd of Virgina who was the Grand Sultan of The Clu
Clanx Clan at the time.Sen Byrd is still revered by his Democrtic collegues to this day.

Camilo... you speak of xenophobia on the part of conservatives. Don't ignore the fact that some of us Latinos are also conservatives and got this way because of what has happened in our own countries; Cuba, Venezuela, etc. What most conservatives want regardless of our nationality is for people who come here to want to become part of the American society, not to come here and complain that the country won't change into what what they want it to be. Don't make yourself a victim. Live your life. Be a law abiding citizen. Contribute to the American cause. We are a nation of immigrants. But not a nation that puts up with the malcontent sector of immigrants that appear most vocal at the moment. Live your life brother. Success and happiness are here for the taking. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

How ironic that the Obama campaign would characterize John McCain as being anti-immigrant or in this case anti Spanish immigrant. Ironic considering that John McCain worked with Ted Kennedy on an immigration bill that was never passed. John McCain with Ted Kennedy the iconoclastic liberal in modern history. How McCain had to suffer through the early part of his campaign and still gets derided as “Juan McCain” or “Juan McAmenesty.”

Now, the Obama campaign is trying to create the false impression that McCain is anti-immigrant. A charge that by any other terms can only be described as preposterous. What the Obama camp has done is taken McCain’s stance on immigration (which was and still remains a huge political liability with the Republican base) 180 degrees into a fictionalized version to scare Spanish Americans in this election cycle.

Of course Obama has plenty of experience in the world of fiction.

Aquellos que crean que Limbaugh no es racista estan demasiado equivocados! QUIZA en este blog no pongan insultantes comentarios por el simple echo de yo estar poniendo mi comentario en Espa~ol. Quiza! Pero estoy seguro q aqui hay aquellos mosca muertas q se estan mordiendo los dedos por querer poner su racismo aqui y en todo lado q puedan.

LA FAMILIA HISPANA sabe que desgraciadamente hemos sido agarrados como pelota de tenis en la politiqueria de los EU. Democratas y Republicanos nos han fallado. Los Democratas el a~o pasado tuvieron la oportunidad de hacer pasar una reforma migratoria, pero como el presidente Bush (Republicano) era el q la apoyaba, pues no lo hicieron para hacerlo quedar mas mal de lo que el mismo se ha hecho quedar. SIN EMBARGO, los REPUBLICANOS han despiadados en sus ataques infundamentados contra no solo los inmigrantes, sino contra todo hispano. El problema de los republicanos es que su gran base de apoyo son aquellos conservadores que viven asustados de ver que una ciudad que antes era completamente de raza blanca, posiblemente con unas pocas personas de otras razas trabajando en mediocridades, ahora se convierten en ciudades mas multiculturales y con personas de todas las razas trabajando y viviendo hombro a hombro con ellos. Esta gente esconde su racismo argumentando que son unicamente los ilegales los q traen problemas a sus comunidades. Esto es tipica xenofobia, y miedo al imigrante. Como ejemplo se puede tomar a la Alemania Nazi de la segunda guerra mundial. Estos argumentaban, sin fundamento que eran los judios quienes habian traido el mal a su pais. Como todos sabemos, la leyes restrictivas empezaron poco a poco a afectar a algunos judios y posteriormente millones de judios fueron asesinados cruel y cobardemente. Este a~o, el plan del partido republicano no cuenta con ningun incentivo o apoyo para aquellos que han estado viviendo sus vidas aqui, que han trabajado duro, que han pagado impuestos, que han estudiado sin ninguna ayuda del gobierno. Muchos Democratas aunque politicamente manejados por su partido si cuentan con un plan que ofrece una manera justa y racional a este problema que le causa tanto dolor a nuestra familia hispana, y que de no ser resuelto pronto, simplemente generara mas odio y racismo basado en las mentiras que exponen muchos que se enaltecen en proclamarlas. Existen leyes injustas asi como existen hombres injustos. Este a~o los hispanos tienen la oportunidad de hacersen sentir en estas elecciones y dejarle saber a los todos los estados unidos que aunque nos maltraten, insulten, o inventen falsedades acerca de nosotros, no nos importa. Nosotros tenemos a Dios quien sabe que somos gente buena y trabajadora, que aunque hay unas pocas manzanas podridas (que si necesitan ser deportadas) la gran mayoria somos decentes, queremos hacer no solo del pais un lugar mejor, sino a todo el mundo. Que Dios nos ayude ahora y siempre.

May God bless America!

Another person in history used the I symbolize the change you are looking for ploy-----Fidel Castro. Like Fidel, Obama is a Marxist who panders to the mob. People wonder how individuals like Hugo Chavez are voted into power. I'm sure he put himself in the position of the typical ignorant sap he saw pushing and shoving in his mass of followers. Things like free food,shelter,and health care were most likely promised.The general public in the United States doesn't view their fellow citizens in this light,but they are wrong. There are millions out there who believe they have a right to free food, shelter,and a warm place to go to the bathroom. They own nothing,they produce nothing,or almost nothing.

No surprise here. Obama and his people don't care whether it's accurate or not, they just want to say what is necessary (and in this case, false) to get votes. Not principled in any way whatsoever. And, it is, unfortunately, not surprising either that he is playing the race card. This is insideous preaching of race struggle by implying that all [white] Republicans are racist. Beneath contempt.

Rush makes a good target but I'm not sure it's fair to compare McCain to Rush. Rush pretty much hews the Republican party line, regardless of how idiotic it is. At one point, he had an independent perspective, even if you didn't agree with it. Now he is just a Republican hack. At least McCain shows some independence, even if you don't agree with his policies. Is this ad unfair? Probably. But it's less absurd or dishonest than Obama's ads. While I prefer conservative policies, the Republican party has definitely dragged our campaigns and discourse into the mud. To complain about ads like this is like the neighborhood bully getting hit back and whining to his mother about how mean his schoolmates are to him.

I have been more offended by the things that Obama say's and his believes than anything Rush has ever said. Just the point that he (Obama) uses every aspect of what people say to make them look like racist offends me more, he must believe that all Hispanics are so ignorant that they can be swayed by that type of campaign tactic.

"Everybody's making immigration proposals these days. Let me add mine to the mix. Call it the Limbaugh Laws. First, if you emigrate to our country you have to speak the native language. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed. Also there will be no special bilingual programs in the schools with the Limbaugh Laws, no special ballots for elections, no government business will be conducted in your language, foreigners will not have the right to vote or hold political office. If you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to taxpayers. You are not entitled to welfare, food stamps, or other government goodies. You can come if you invest here an amount equal to $40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If not, stay home. But if you want to buy land it's going to be restricted. No waterfront, for instance. As a foreigner, you must relinquish individual rights to the property. And another thing, you don't have the right to protest. You're allowed no demonstrations, no foreign flag waving, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. You're a foreigner, either shut your mouth or get out. And if you come here illegally, you're going to jail. You think the Limbaugh Laws are harsh? Well, everyone one of these laws I just mentioned are actual laws of Mexico today. That's how the Mexican government handles immigrants in their country, yet Mexicans come here illegally and protest in our streets. How do you say double standard in Spanish? How about no mas?"

John McCain's top ten temper explosions ...

http://blog.case.edu/conservativemovement/2008/01/29/john_mccains_top_ten_temper_explosions

__________________________________________

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1024927/The-wife-John-McCain-callously-left-behind.html

"Ross Perot, who paid her medical bills all those years ago, now believes that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel – even by the standards of modern politics.

‘McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching for attention and glory,’ he said."
________________________________________

In her acceptance speech, Sarah Palin approvingly quoted Westbrook Pegler, who among other things was a racist, an anti-semite and a fascist who advocated killing Robert F. Kennedy.

In Spanish, there is a phrase, "To s/he who understands, few words are needed."

Palin's literary choice speaks volumes about why her ignorance does not portend bliss for the American people and their ideals.

In this time of economic turndown, a moment when the search for scapegoats may be just around the corner, it might be wise to remember the words of author Sinclair Lewis, which hopefully will not turn out to be prophetic:

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross.”
_________________________________________

Barack Obama has stood firm on employee free speech rights, fighting to make sure that those who dare commit the truth on behalf public integrity, the taxpayer and national security are protected.

John McCain refuses to commit to real whistleblower protections.

Even now, conservative free speech groups are furiously lobbying him to take a stand, in part to try to neutralize Obama's leadership on the issue.

I know how important this is, having won the U.S. Office of Special Counsel's "Public Servant Award"--the highest award given in the federal service to whistleblowers and, in my case, the first one given to a national security whistleblower. [www.osc.gov/documents/press/2001/pr01_16.htm]

MORE THAN A "MAVERICK" AND HIS POSSE, MCCAIN AND HIS LOBBYIST CREW APPEAR TO BE THE "LOAN ARRANGERS."

What are his people afraid of?

A little ethical dissent in government?

Hey, Barry, You can race bait all you want. we refuse to bite on the bait. Keep saying, by the way, they'll say He's black-They havent, pal. How many times are you going to play the race card before you learn. It wont work. You have some gall, sitting on a 93% vote from blacks. Is any of that based on race? If you running on the pigment platform, Watch out, Palin is tanning and she's kicking your butt already. But the slime machine is up and running, whats next on the Palin slime front from your minions? Breaking into her email? Hmm, sounds like a break in to me. Are you hiring nixon plumbers? Can you say I'm not a crook? Guy that helped you buy a house, Resko, cant. Difference between you and Nixon is he always looked down, you just have your nose in the air looking down on us. Are you afraid to debate the issues- like you ducked all but 2 debates? Oops, that's right, cant read someone elses words that are written on a teleprompter in a debate. Its hard spontaneously framing answers that conceal what you really believe. Commie Saul Alinsky would be proud. At least Ayers admits he doesnt regret what he did. Want to talk about race, hows Rev Wright lately? Oh, that's right, you didnt know the man was like that whose quote you named your book after, who baptised you, married you and you sat in his church 20 years as he was selling his racist rant tapes in the church lobby . Hey, only person I know who missed more than that was a lady who didnt know hubby was getting a Monica downstairs while she was upstairs asleep. (also an Alinsky student) Yup, you have no judgement or experience, so only want to talk about race. Be careful what you wish for, because you may just be ticking off latinos and whites who may follow the black lead voting pigment, giving McCain an easy victory. As for Rush being a racist, I resent the article saying Rushs words were racist. I have never heard him so and have listened to him since his first shows in Sacramento. How twisted or out of context are these? Kind of like Mccain wants to stay in iraq 100 years. You lied and your campaign died. My prediction is a McCain landslide a la Carter's 48 state debacle. Keep it up. We are seeing what you mean by change or is it change that is mean?

Elected officials that can't get it done and want even more of your money to get even less done. That's just a taste of what WILL happen if Obama is elected. He promised more taxes and more government to screw things up.

Enough is Enough..
please consider for a moment that you are arguing that you would rather your tax dollars continue to go to the filthy rich gas companies that are robbing this country blind. 7/8 of McCain's campaign advisors are big name lobbyists, even in the primary he admitted the economy wasn't his strong suit when asked a simple question about interest rates.

Even if you want to believe he is a maverick that will fight for you when he hasn't been doing it for the past 8 years, how's he going to do that when his advisors, administration, and party are almost all for continuing Bush's policies.

As far as the "socialism" BS you've been fed by these hacks McCain's campaign is citing as legitimate economists, please note Obama is returning tax rates to what they were under Clinton for the super wealthy, how is that socialism? I suppose you'd prefer to see a continuation of the destruction of the middle class while the rich get richer. McCain Palin is the threat to the future of this nation and our standing in the world. Obama Biden will turn the path of this country to what it was before Bush, and restore our image worldwide, and ability to spread democracy to developing nations.

I guess I can say without a doubt that Obama is in a panic. I am a Mexican American, my parents came from Mexico, became citizens, and I know the context in which Rush Limbaugh made those comments. It is nothing like what Obama's campaign is saying. In fact Rush was standing up for us. If Obama resorts to lies now, before he is elected. What will happen if he is our president and he goes under investigation for his policies. I'm sure we will get the truth. Pardon me while I barf....

Which party favors the defeat of American soldiers for political expediency and which party is pro-victory?

Question: Why are there even Spanish language ads in the first place?

In order to vote, one must first be a citizen. In order to become a citizen, one must first demonstrate proficiency in the English language.

So what's the point of pandering to people who don't speak English? They're not citizens, and therefore cannot vote.

Sen. Obama Says The ‘Prettiest Sound On Earth At Sunset’ Is The Muslim Call To Prayer

Obama aka Barry Soetoro attended Muslim school in the Indonesian language, which he still speaks.

“I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said in a wide-ranging interview in his office He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.

http://select.nytimes.com/2007/03/06/opinion/06kristof.html?_r=2&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated, Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

I am thrilled thrilled thrilled that Barack's ad went after Rush. The man who claimed that Michael J Fox was exaggerating his Parkinsons for sympathy. I have listened to all sides, read blogs from both points of view but the Palin nomination and all of the arguments I patiently listened to about Baracks inexperience were different with Palin. There is no reasoning with right wingers even while they send your youth to die so they can pay their country club fees. The wealthy who manipulate all of you who refuse to read and educate yourselves. Newsflash. Rush Limbaugh has been behind everything that has gone wrong in this country for the last eight years. He gets paid very well to stoke your anger, and despair. You all mistake Democrats frustration and call it anger, we cant believe how stupid you are to fall in line in like sheople while McCain would have put your 401ks in Lehman bros and other areas of stock market. Educate yourselves, think for yourselves. Stop being manipulated because you arent interested in intellectual pursuits. The people who run this country should be brilliant, the men who wrote the constitution were. It's nerds like Bill Gates who create jobs not wars. We're not angry we FRUSTRATED because conservatives allow themselves to be so easily manipulated. I am a pro life democrate. Pro life means to me that God gives life and God takes it away. Not war, the Pope was against it. So as a Catholic how do I reconcile hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and more than 3500 of our troops for what. So Putin can laugh while he invades and manipulates the oil markets. I am not angry this is our FUTURE. Please for the love of GOD AND COUNTRY. Ask yourself why you are voting why you are, listen to others, and pray to God that the best man win our election. God Bless America, each citizen, the World and reveal to all of us the TRUTH. Thanks.

Can you blame the 92%? This is the first time they have been able to vote for an African-American candidate and, if you think about it, the African-Americans that have voted in previous elections, voted 100% white.

The lack of racial diversity at the Republican convention was overwhelming and obvious when the cameras scanned the crowd.

You are a product which is not set genetically between the Caucasian and Mongolian races. If in fact you are the 5th generation and your forefathers married only Caucasians, then you are totally Caucasians.

Don't believe me? Well look up genetics and see if I am right or the la raza is right.

we shall win in 2008. It shall be a Republican victory but it shall be close.

why, because not longer does the news media hold the sword of untruths over us. the Internet has set us free.

Go to school because each time you use race to describe you as something special, you are not

As a veteran independent political commentator I see a strange dynamic this year in the presidential race. We have Obama (Marxist) fighting the Republican ticket while also trying to fend off the Socialist assault of the Clintons who by all accounts do not really want Obama to win anyway because if he does he'll be in office for eight years and Hillary will be too old to run at her age by then. It's almost as if Hillary is playing the "Nader Card" by coyly keeping Obama at arms length while pretending to support him? I think I'll expand upon this theory in my next column.

Absolutely deplorable! The lengths to which the Left will go to try and destroy those they hate is breathtaking.
Can you imagine if these people had absolute power or authority? Were it so, I dare say that they'd be indistinguishable from the Communist party of the U.S.S.R. I mean my Lord, they think Bush and America are the bad guys and that the U.N. and Russia are good the good! It’s like the Twilight Zone!
If they can’t sway popular opinion, they go to the courts. If they can't sway the courts they go to the streets. If they can't succeed in the streets, they resort to illegal methods such as these. They spew lies and vitriol, anything for in their minds the means truly justices the end.
There's no stopping these people because they can’t be reasoned with.
Dare I say that if they had their way, everyone who disagrees with them put into reeducation camps.
They're tearing this country apart and the masses are following them straight down the road to a living hell.

Rush could easily hammer Obama in court because he is a private citizen and his statements were made as part of a private corporate broadcast.

Get your facts straight.

The first black judge on the Supreme Court was NOT Clarence Thomas, as quoted above. It was Thurgood Marshall, appointed by President Lyndon Johnson, Democrat, in 1967. Marshall was the attorney that won the Brown vs. the Board case desegregating public schools.

Since the Voting Rights Act and Civil Rights Acts of Lyndon Johnson, the Republican Party has consistently appealed to covert racism to win elections in the south. This is the year that gets cracked.

Even Southerners are realizing that following the right like lemmings over a cliff doesn't make sense. Oh, a few will remain loyal to an economy that loses jobs, spends outlandish sums chasing non-existent weapons of mass distraction, supports policies and actions that profit their friends in the oil economy, destroys American constitutional values, and the list goes on.

And it was Democrats who passed civil rights legislation to end segregation (which is why all those southern states that were once reliably democratic turned republican for generations).

I disagree with the Democrats notion that all African-Americans are automatically "on their side." What you fail to realize is that many of us prefer to make it on our own using our own intelligence, hard work, and common sense. While you may cater to those who wish to continue receiving handouts there are just as many who prefer to take personal responsibility and lead a life of virtue instead spending our whole lives complaining about how bad we're "getting screwed by the man." There are plenty of conservative African-Americans who vote republican but who wish to remain silent due the overwhelming disdain shown by our more militant brothers (Farahkaan, Obama, etc.)

So, let's see the history of racism and sexism for Republicans vs. Democrats.

It was a Republican who freed the slaves (Lincoln).

It was a Republican (Reagan) who put the first female Judge (Sandra Day O'Connor) on the Supreme Court.

It was a Republicans (Reagan) who gave amnesty to 2 million illegals in 1986.

It was a Republican (Bush I) who put the first black Judge (Clarence Thomas) on the Supreme Court.

It was a Republican (Bush) who has had the most diverse cabinet in the HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES (with female, black, Latino and even Asian administration officers in high positions!).

And it will be the Republicans who will have the first female V.P. in the HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES!!

And the REPUBLICANS are racist? Let me ask you females, blacks and Latinos: What have the DEMOCRATS ever done for YOU???

The bible clearly states that if you confess your sins and believe on Him (Jesus) you will be saved. Save from what? The consequences of your sins=DEATH.

Don't forget the loving relationship between mexicans and African-Americans in Los Angeles (I'm kidding folks -- the situation is dire). Basically, the mexicans couldn't care less about African-Americans or their issues. Obama is a nobody to them. He is wasting his money on the advertisements because the illegal mexicans can't vote anyway. So keep up the good the work Obama because McCain will outsmart you in the end -- he's a wise old owl and you will take his bait in the debates and thus be exposed as the corporate poser that you are. You are GRAY PINSTRIPE WALL STREET all the way and the American public views you as part of the problem -- not part of the solution.

They are the biggest hypocrites in the world and will have to give an account of their actions.

It is Democrats one again who are using the race card, if he looses they'll say Americans are racist, and even if he wins they'll say that the half of the country that didn't vote for him are racist.

I am a Mexican American woman and I'm just laughing at these claims. The add is ridiculous. John McCain has been a champion of Hispanic rights. He voted to have every illiegal alien become immediate citizens. Even I don't agree with that. Another example of John McCain going across partisan lines to stand up for what he believes in. I may not always agree with everything he does, but he is a man of principle and integrity. Look at the state of CA budget. It is being weighed down by the Democrat's out of control spending, which includes the burden of illegal aliens. While I believe that the undocumented aliens are by far more productive for the economy and hardworking versus the welfare receivers in CA I would like to see them paying into the tax system. A legal American citizen who is working hard but has no insurance does not make sense if we are paying for the education and healthcare of illegal aliens. Just doesn't make sense.

McCain actually leans towards the center/left on many issues and that's why the conservatives hate him. But as a moderate Democrat I am voting for him in November because Obama just doesn't have enough experience at the national level. Community experience has a nice "feel good" sound to it but unfortunately for Obama it is a "no pressure" job that doesn't really prove he has a solid decision making ability. Decisions at the community level are oftentimes made by consensus versus one person making a hard choice then living with the decision regardless of whether or not others agree with it.

No candidate has felt this tension so keenly, or written about it as movingly, as McCain. In his memoir "Worth the Fighting For," McCain describes the sickening sensation of renouncing his views about the Confederate flag to curry favor with South Carolina voters in 2000 -- "reading it as if I were making a hostage statement."

He wrote that his "theatrics" were designed to "telegraph reporters that . . . political imperatives required a little evasiveness on my part. I wanted them to think me still an honest man, who simply had to cut a corner a little here and there so that I could go on to be an honest president."

"Dos caras" is exemplified in kissing big labor's a$$es when forced to campaign hard in fly-over country and the rust belt and then talking to elitist supporters in San Francisco about how those mainstream Americans cling to guns and religion. Or in talking about being for those middle class voters while failing to offer one bill in three years to cut their taxes. Or in wanting to get the troops out of Iraq and then lobbying the Iraqi regime to not let President Bush remove any of them before the election. Or saying you're for the aforementioned troops but voting against funding their mission.

Change? No, just more of the old cynicism the American people have rejected time and time again, only sugar-coated this time in grandiose, self-absorbed messianic platitudes.

I am a college graduate, wife, mother and employee. I research the stats so that I can be an educated voter, and am getting seriously tired of people, who obviously only know how to spout off what they are told without ever questioning it, calling me an insensitive, uncaring, uneducated sheep because I vote conservative.

Conservatives care just as much about the environment, education, the economy, children and families, and so on as Democrats, they simply think that a free market not the government should run it. Think about it, if all the organizations and special interest groups simply hired someone to be their fundraiser and stopped asking for handouts, the gov't (meaning you and me) wouldn't have to spend as much, giving us more money in our pockets. With more money in our pockets, Americans as the most generous country in history, would donate and keep organizations going. Only with the benefit of creating of jobs, lowering taxes and keeping the inefficient gov't out of it.

Oh noes, did Rush Limbaugh and his merry band of extra-chromosome-carrying followers just get pwned?

And whats this? Wick Allison, the ex-publisher of THE premier Conservative magazine, The National Review, just endorsed Obama for President?

Wick Allison sez "[McCain's] kind of conservatism, which is not conservative at all, has produced financial mismanagement, the waste of human lives, the loss of moral authority, and the wreckage of our economy that McCain now threatens to make worse."

WAKE UP! Obama does this on purpose - he stokes the flames of racism, he makes you feel like life is rough and then tries to empower you by saying you need more respect. It's exactly what has made Oprah rich all these years. John McCain, in contrast, has been a long and vocal supporter of Hispanics. He has endorsements. Obama has more ugly lies. It's not McCain that has two faces - it's Obama telling you what he's really like. Wake up, America! Obama is a socialist - his father was not a dead beat, sure he did not live with his family but the man wrote to Obama throughout college and was influential in his socialist ideals. Be aware - read and educate yourself about the real Obama. Then vote John McCain, respectfully.

(AP) WASHINGTON - A top Hillary Rodham Clinton fundraiser threw her support behind Republican John McCain on Wednesday, saying he will lead the country in a centrist fashion and accusing the Democrats of becoming too extreme.

"I believe that Barack Obama, with MoveOn.org and Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean, has taken the Democratic Party — and they will continue to — too far to the left," Lynn Forester de Rothschild said. "I'm not comfortable there."

Rothschild is also a member of the Democratic National Committee's Platform Committee. She said she would be stepping down from her position on the committee but will not switch political parties.

She praised McCain for working with Democrats to pass legislation and for standing up to President Bush on the Iraq war.

"I just ask, who has Barack Obama ever stood up to? And that troubles me a lot," she said.

Keep everyone pissed-off at "the other half" and diverted from what's really going on. Useful idiots. Go team! You all sound like your suffering from hysteria and in dire need of anger management group therapy--even paranoid. Are Republican or Democrat Americans REALLY that bad? These are still Americans, remember? If it hits the fan you will help each other, you know this. You have worked yourselves up into a hysterical froth. The country isn't going to "change" that much regardless of the election outcome. We still need business and government and jobs and education, etc. Neither of these pols are going to upset that applecart--it ain't gonna happen! So, enjoy life now, get a way from the lying, cheating, deceiving, posturing politicians for a while. There is more to life than these borderline, god-complexed a-holes. Both side should fear a big government--governments always suck. So all you get is bigger suck! (That last sentence had absolutely nothing to do with Bill Clinton)

I just think it's funny that the Deocrats claim to be the party of the little guy when they raise more money from the wealthy than the Republicans do. Although both parties raise about the same amount, the GOP gets more money from small donors and Dems get more from big donors.
In 2004...
$200 to $999: GOP $68 mil; Dems $44 mil
$1,000 to $9,999: GOP $317 mil; Dems $307 mil
$10,000+: GOP $111 mil – Dems $140 mil $100,000+: GOP $34 mil - Dems $72 mil
1 Million +: GOP $3 mil - Dems $36 mil

To those who have trouble with simple math (e.g. Rush Limbaugh's ditto-heads):

Yes, Rush Limbaugh is the most listened to talk show on Radio.

No, that does not mean "most Americans" agree with him. It means most people that listen to talk radio (which is about 2% of the country's population) like to listen to Rush.

And of that 2%, probably about half of them are people listening to see when he says his next racist, bigoted, fear-mongering, factually-challenged remark so we can call him (and his republican followers) out on it.

So basically, Rush is a big, oxycontin abusing fish in a very, very small pond. A pond that is populated with pretty much nothing but hate mongers, at that.

Posted by: Ronald Reagan | September 17, 2008 5:22 PM

I read a few posts and saw two that were very interesting:

1. If your ideal is a guy who had his first political fundraiser at the home of an acknowledged terrorist; who bought his home at a discount from a criminal and then lied about their relationship, who cavorts with Pro-Palestinians like Gen McPeak and Samantha Powers - enemies of Israel and then winks and says "vote for me -I'm a friend of Israel," who wants to dismantle our military, who has a terrorist cousin in Africa and dedicates his book to his deadbeat black father who deserted him and then he disses his white mother and grandmother who stayed and raised him, who sat in church for 20 years listening to his mentor Wright preach hate of America, hate of white people and promulgate black power and racism and then claims he never heard the sermons ; the same preacher who had an adulterous relationship with a member of his congregation ; who chose as his wife a woman who dislikes white people, advocates black power and dislikes her country which is mean and nasty; who works for a Chicago hospital that kicks poor people to the curb, who belittles small town residents when he thinks they're out of earshot; who has been in the State and US senate but can't seem to make decisions on whether to vote yes or no; who has never in his life run anything; who says one thing then does another - campaign financing, Nafta , voting for the troops, voting for the Bridge to Nowhere, who smirks and then slides his middle finger across his face at the mention of Hillary Clinton and calls Sarah Palin a pig, who espouses socialist policies and programs which have failed in all Communist nations in the past; who plays the race and gender card and then tries to blame it on others; who criticizes America while he is roaming the globe as the Citizen of the World, who advocates big government, big spending, expanded entitlement programs,all paid for by huge tax increases.If that's your ideal, then you certainly should vote for Barack Hussein Obama.

And

2. I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....
If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic' and 'different.'
Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you're an American story.
If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, and you're a maverick.
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, then you're well-grounded.
If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, help register 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, 8 years as a State Senator of a district of 750,000 people, chair the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people, sponsor 131 bills, and serve on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works, and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
If your resume is: briefly, local sportscaster, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town of less than 7,000 people, 2 years as governor of a state of 650,000 people, you're qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and even applied for a marriage license to marry the rich heiress 9 months before you were divorced from your ill wife, finally divorced your ill wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
If you teach responsible, age-appropriate sex education, including the use of birth control, you erode the fiber of American society.
If you staunchly advocate abstinence-only education, while your teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're responsible.
If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, you don't represent America's family values.
If your husband is called 'First Dude', has a DWI conviction, didn't register to vote until 25, and was a member of a group that advocated secession of Alaska from the USA, yours is the quintessential American family.

And, finally, if you're famous for your quick temper, you're the one to have your finger on the red nuclear button.
OK, much clearer now.

And I still ask myself "Self, why are there so few Ralph Nader supporters?"

Posted by: Nader Raider | September 17, 2008 5:21 PM

Hey Will in Georgia, you're such a peach. Tell me this, how is the South gonna survive a split with the North when it is the tax money generated in the North that subsidizes the South? Seriously. Look it up. Per capita, southerners use up about 300% of the U.S. tax dollars that people living in the North do, even though the North generates about 70% of that tax revenue.

In other words, be careful what you wish for.

The criminal class in Washington, Wall St. The Fed and at various banks around the country with the Treasury's help and the complacency of a corrupt on the take Congress in the hands of the democraps and repulsives since time started, has effectivly destroyed the greatest accumulation of wealth in World History. The Federal Reserve has been embezzling the American people's wealth since 1913 and it put the final touches for the final solution, in place this last few days.
The final solution is the complete enslavement of This Country and it's on their knees people.
Unless "We the People" get outraged RIGHT NOW, we will have a continuation of this RICO and entrenched consortium for many more years to come. There is a solution, and that is to un-elect every single person running for re-election and all those who are running for election under the socialist party system, known as the Republicans and Democrats, and NOT vote for any of them. There are several third party candidates that would make a significant change if given the chance and they would not be just more of the same criminals that we have now.
Who do you think ahs been in control of Washington over the last 100 years? It has been the friendly, hands in your pocket, Democrats and Republicans. They have destroyed this country and they need to be destroyed at the voting booth in November.
No! voting for McCain or Obama is a fraud and an excuse to enslave your fellow Americans further.
Failure to un-elect and not elect them will bring us that much closer to the Bullet Box or chains rather than the ballot box.
I can assure you there is nowhere to hide.
A vote for Obama = Ignorance
A vote for McCain = Stupidity

But such is the way of the Stepfords, I mean THE STEPFORDS! Judging by the spelling of most of you, you're poor ass republicans, the worst kind. You befriend those with money to make yourselves look rich, but you're just as poor as the rest of the 95% of America.

Easy there, Herbert Hoover, I know you can't wait to see what my second term is going to look like.

But at least you'll have a president who can shoot a mean three-pointer and has an iPod.

Hold on folks!!!

I'm a proud red blooded mouth breathin' "dittohead" who has recorded every Oxycontin induced slurred speech monologue that Rush Limbaugh has ever produced.

I have them for 20 years. I play them daily so that I can come up with fresh material for my many posts on internet forums. That way I appear intelligent far beyond my 81.5 IQ.

I hear Ms Sarah Palin does the very same thing.

Rush knows lots and he is a very smart man.

And I'm sure all of Rush's drug-addled, brain-deficient listeners are outraged at this blatant telling of the truth!

Is Obama telling us he wants open borders and amnesty for 30 million illegal immigrants? Be a man and tell us so in English so the real American people can decide if they agree or not. Don't target your ads to the illegal immigrants.

Mr Pill Pooper Limbaugh says the comments are taken out of context, yet he can't remember how they were taken out of context? What a moron!!! Take some more prescription pills to get you high, Rush!!

And then he says Obama is "stoking racism". SERIOUSLY? This from the hillbilly-heroin junkie who plays his racist tune "Barack the magic Negro" on his show all the time?!?!

Well, at least we know only Rush's brain-dead listeners are dub enough to buy this load of crap.

This just in: Sarah Palin jaywalked across the street ten years ago -- yet another example of how this woman is completely unfit to serve as vice president.

In other news, Barack [middle name omitted] Obama proudly announced that he complied with federal law and signed up for the selective service when he turned 18. He also "thought" about joining the military. What a true American hero -- we are fortunate to be blessed with his presence.

Does anyone else get more than a little pissed when They say republicans/conservatives are anti-immigrant? The vast majority think it's great. Just do it legally or get the !@#$ out. We could let 2-3 times the number of immigrants into our country from all over the world if it weren't for all of the illegial immigration that goes on unpunished. I know several Legal immigrants that went through the process and they get more than a little upset by illegal immigration.

Just too funny. You idiots couldn't possibly lose this election but I'll be damned if you're not going to, bigtime. That's when the real fun begins. Then we get to watch you all sputter and froth at the mouth for four more years. har har har.

I like how Democrats all say the same thing, according to them Republicans are all either uneducated hicks or big corporate tycoons. I won't even comment on how little sense that makes. But if you thought for youself and did a little research you'd find out that the staements in this ad are taken way out of context, they don't even apply to the United States' immigrants, it applies to Mexico's policy on immigrants. Mexico if you didn't know has very strick immigration laws, stating that immigrants are not allowed to complain or protest, they can't wave flags other than the Mexican flag, and if they don't like it they can shut up and leave. There is nowhere in the U.S. that has that policy, maybe there should be then we wouldn't be in the mess were in with all of our illegal aliens. The same illegal aliens who work and send their money back to Mexico, they don't pay taxes and they collect social services, they are bringing in illnesses that were long ago wiped out in the U.S. like polio, they drive around with no insurance, they go to U.S. hospitals and recieve care but have no way to pay and on and on and on. No not all illegals do these things, but enough are that they are causing a lot of strain on our hospitals, our social programs and our economy.

Posted by: GOP08_DOA | September 17, 2008 4:51 PM

OK Jack Boy, let's do the analysis on this brilliant piece that you wandered across between visits to porn sites:

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....
If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic' and 'different.'
Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you're an American story.
If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. (he attended a madras in Indonesian. He is radical and unpatriotic - just look at his friends - Rev. Wright and William Ayers. Are they mainstream pro-US types? Not.)
Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, and you're a maverick. (Gov. Palin is a maverick for reforming government in Alaska, by eliminating good ole boy business as usual. Not so with Barry O.)
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable. (Obama was sponsored in Harvard by Khalid Al-Mansour. U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee of California entered an official statement of appreciation of Warden and his Black Panther colleagues in the African-American Association in the Congressional Record on April 23, 2007.
“Among the founding members (of the Association) were community leaders such as Khalid Al-Mansour (known then as Don Warden); future Judges Henry Ramsey and Thelton Henderson; future Congressman and Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums, and future Black Panthers Huey Newton and Bobby Seale,” the Democratic representative’s statement said. Al-Mansour’s more recent videotaped speeches focus on Muslim themes, and abound with anti-Semitic theories and anti-Israel vitriol. “Today, the Palestinians are being brutalized like savages,” he told an audience in South Africa. “If you protest you will go to jail, and you may be killed. And they say they are the only democratic country in the Middle East. ... They are lying on God.” ----- Obama may be a little radical and unpatriotic, ya dink?)

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, then you're well-grounded.
If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review (According to his Campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt, Obama was the first person President of the Harvard Law Review who never ever published any of his own work. LaBolt said Obama didn't write any articles for the Review, though his two semesters at the helm did produce a wide range of edited case analyses and unsigned "notes" from Harvard students.)

, help register 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, 8 years as a State Senator of a district of 750,000 people, chair the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people, sponsor 131 bills, and serve on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works, and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience. (No executive experience whatsoever and no major accomplishments of CHANGE WE NEED OR BELIEVE IN OR CAN WHATEVER.)
If your resume is: briefly, local sportscaster, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town of less than 7,000 people, 2 years as governor of a state of 650,000 people, you're qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. (Much more executive experience than Obama and documented major accomplishments)
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and even applied for a marriage license to marry the rich heiress 9 months before you were divorced from your ill wife, finally divorced your ill wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
If you teach responsible, age-appropriate sex education, including the use of birth control, you erode the fiber of American society. (Kindergarten sex education)
If you staunchly advocate abstinence-only education, while your teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're responsible. (Abortion on-demand, and kills a bill so that he can make sure that babies born after botched abortions suffer and die mercilessly.)
If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, you don't represent America's family values.
If your husband is called 'First Dude', has a DWI conviction, didn't register to vote until 25, and was a member of a group that advocated secession of Alaska from the USA, yours is the quintessential American family.
(Oh, and a few golden quotes from Michelle Obama, : "our souls are broken in this nation"; "blacks must join in solidarity to combat a white oppressor"; "we're a country that is just downright mean."; "We're a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents.")

And, finally, if you're famous for your quick temper, you're the one to have your finger on the red nuclear button.
OK, much clearer now.
(Nonsense, McCain on The View proved he had the patience of a saint. Of Obama would have sued them all and filed criminal charges for assault.)

I listen to Rush, and his show has been slamming McCain for his weak stance on illegal immigration for years. There was no bigger critic of McCain than Rush, which makes this incredibly laughable. I'm sure they'd both be surprised to find out they're now friends. As for the comments themselves, people love to take Rush out of context or take parody statements and present them as truth. They've got 3 hours a day to find their little soundbites. If we're going to take tv or radio personalities' and attribute them to a candidate, I'm sure McCain can find plenty of fodder on MSNBC, AirAmerica, or the Daily Kos.

Posted by: virg | September 17, 2008 4:34 PM

Notice how the leftist WashPost simply reports the contents of this slander on Limbaugh as if it is objectively true. Rush categorically denied today that he eve made those comments. Obama needs to either prove that Rush made the comments or be held accountable for blatantly lying and smearing Rush Limbaugh. But I won't expect the media to follow up on this lie any more than they did Obama trying to convince the Iraqi government not to agree to any troop withdraw until Bush leave office. The media are nothing more than the propaganda division of the Obama campaign.

Posted by: kenfalk | September 17, 2008 4:32 PM

Even though it won't make any difference the commercial is severely misquoting Rush Limbaugh. The lines were taken from a parody where Limbaugh was likening what immigration rules would sound like if the US had Mexican immigration policies. But, I don't expect any of these silly folks pay any attention to any truth that gets in the way of their hate.

Sex Ed for Kindergarteners 'Right Thing to Do,' Says Obama
Email
Share

July 18, 2007 1:13 PM

ABC News' Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is "age-appropriate," is "the right thing to do."

"I remember Alan Keyes . . . I remember him using this in his campaign against me," Obama said in reference to the conservative firebrand who ran against him for the U.S. Senate in 2004. Sex education for kindergarteners had become an issue in his race against Keyes because of Obama’s work on the issue as chairman of the health committee in the Illinois state Senate.

"'Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergarteners,'" said Obama mimicking Keyes' distinctive style of speech. "Which -- I didn’t know what to tell him (laughter)."

"But it’s the right thing to do," Obama continued,

Posted by: Larry | September 17, 2008 4:26 PM

It's so ironic that the Obama Camp has the gall to make a negative campaign ad in span ish. An earlier of speech of Obama caught him saying "make sure your child can speak spanish" and talking about when Americans go abroad, "all we can say is merci beaucoup": Here is my point: How long has this man KNOWN he was being groomed for this campaign? And he has not taken the initiative to learn Spanish himself, take an audio course on the road with him, like Rosetta Stone, hire someone to teach him, or put his girls in Spanish classes,even if the school doesn't offer them. come on if its so damn important, he had the money to do it. It's the same old Democratic crap, do as I say not as I do. He can't lead by example! Not to mention, if you made Obama take EVERY reference to McCain, Palin and Bush, out of his ads and his speeches, he would have nothing to say. Just a blank teleprompter!

If your ideal is a guy who had his first political fundraiser at the home of an acknowledged terrorist; who bought his home at a discount from a criminal and then lied about their relationship, who cavorts with Pro-Palestinians like Gen McPeak and Samantha Powers - enemies of Israel and then winks and says "vote for me -I'm a friend of Israel," who wants to dismantle our military, who has a terrorist cousin in Africa and dedicates his book to his deadbeat black father who deserted him and then he disses his white mother and grandmother who stayed and raised him, who sat in church for 20 years listening to his mentor Wright preach hate of America, hate of white people and promulgate black power and racism and then claims he never heard the sermons ; the same preacher who had an adulterous relationship with a member of his congregation ; who chose as his wife a woman who dislikes white people, advocates black power and dislikes her country which is mean and nasty; who works for a Chicago hospital that kicks poor people to the curb, who belittles small town residents when he thinks they're out of earshot; who has been in the State and US senate but can't seem to make decisions on whether to vote yes or no; who has never in his life run anything; who says one thing then does another - campaign financing, Nafta , voting for the troops, voting for the Bridge to Nowhere, who smirks and then slides his middle finger across his face at the mention of Hillary Clinton and calls Sarah Palin a pig, who espouses socialist policies and programs which have failed in all Communist nations in the past; who plays the race and gender card and then tries to blame it on others; who criticizes America while he is roaming the globe as the Citizen of the World, who advocates big government, big spending, expanded entitlement programs,all paid for by huge tax increases.If that's your ideal, then you certainly should vote for Barack Hussein Obama.

It really makes me sick every time I hear some know-nothing political hack say that the U.S. is the root of all of the world's problems because it removed Sadam Hussein and is attempting to leave Iraq with a stable democracy. All of this McCrap talk is false and detrimental to logical discussion. What do these people think we should do? Maybe Obama should go around the world and deliver the following message as President of the United States and leader of the free world. The United States will immediately:
1. End all oil drilling and increase taxes by the trillions to convert all energy sources to wind power, bio-fuels, and solar panels.
2. Cease manufacturing gas vehicles and mandate all US car manufacturers to make wind, bio-fuels, and solar powered vehicles.
3. Unilaterally disarm itself of all nuclear weapons.
4. Pull its entire military out of all foreign countries.
5. Eliminate the CIA.
6. Cut the U.S. military by 90% and only allow its use for humanitarian purposes only.
7. Nationalize its Health Care based on the systems of Europe and Canada.
8. End free trade. High tariffs will be placed on all imports.
9. Open its borders and immigration.
10. Replace the US Dollar with the Euro or a new North American universal currency.
11. Move to rewrite its constitution based on European and Sharia law.
12. Mandate new laws for the government-standardized education curriculum and medication of U.S. children.
13 Allow killing of any infant less than 3 days old.
14 Begin human cloning.
15. Radio and Television Opinion will be regulated by the government and Government-sponsored media outlets will replace some private popular stations in the name of “fairness”.
16 Ban the practice of Christianity and Judaism outside of state-sponsored churches and synagogues.
17. Refuse to comment on any world conflict outside of the United Nations.
18. Place the U.S. military under the command of the U.N.
19. And finally, sit down with the leaders of Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Sudan, North Korea, Hezbollah and Hamas to negotiate a lasting world peace. All impediments to “peace” will be removed, including Israel, ex-Soviet democracies, Taiwan, and small fledgling democracies that share borders with the “peace brokers” or possess natural resources that will be confiscated in the spirit of eminent domain.

This is not far-fetched. This is actually a real representation of the agenda of the left in the U.S.
And this may, indeed, all become reality in the near future.

Did you know that the slick pelosi and democrats in the House are now stopping off-shore drilling with this new stealth bill before the 9/30/2008 expiration on the off-shore drilling ban? Osalama, Pelosi and Reid are really messing up this country to satisfy their mafia lobbyist kick-back friends. They should be hung for treason. I can't believe that people are falling for these saboteurs!

http://thomas.loc.gov/home/thomas.html

Do a search on House Bill HR 6899. You'll get to read the full text of the bill that's been pushed by Speaker Peolosi. Please note the Subtitle A area... and also note the fact that 'no leases' will be authorized if they are not in affect as of July 2008. SO in essense no new drilling in the Gulf.

Certainly other aspects to include how States will not be collecting any revenues for new drilling offshore (so what's the incentive to authorize anything)...

Certainly a last minute sham to attempt to preserve the House and Senate majority of a group that went on 'recess'... and now are afraid they may lose the gavel. Gee a 9% and 12% approval rating for the House and Senate ... might tell you something about how were NOT being governed.

Typical. Only read the parts you like. It says Sarah Palin's husband didn't register not her. Maybe you were just too excited since it's in CAPS with lots of exclamation points. Probably the same people that mistook her for being a member of a political party seeking for Alaska to secede (again her husband). Or wait maybe you believed that her daughter secretly had a baby and then she pretended it was hers. Read something, read again, read again, then process. You might have fewer hair trigger reactions that way. Though it's doubtful. How else would you achieve orgasm?

Well, anybody who listens to Limbaugh knows that this is a complete fraud, a lie.

Wonder if it is true that the actual candidate that bumps off mutual opponent will win in November regardless of issues and poll numbers?

Apparently the mutual opponent is wealthy and exposed corruption within both parties and is presently targeted.

The question is how?

Will the GOP use Guiliani-like mob ties such as used by his protege, ex-NYPD commissioner and may be doing up to 140 years of jail time? Or Gotti, Jr. who is currently on trial for conspiracy and murder?

Will Dem use an OJ Simpson-like black convict with jail time? Coincidentally, OJ's trial with robbery and kidnapping is today too.

Will both political parties use the popular law enforcement practice of 'sweetheart exchange deals' where convicts commit crime/murder in exchange for less jail time, conveniently covered up and real culprits not publicly suspected?

Having shared this information, do we too have to worry about our personal safety? For example, does my husband have to worry about his life when he is doing his daily jog after work in the Hackensack/Bogota/Teaneck, NJ areas? Do we have to worry about the tampering of our food, water and air inside our home since our habits and plans are known in advanced due to bugging devices in private and public?

What do you think?

I didn't write this. I saw it on another blog and thought it was brilliant. I think I'm going to copy it and send it to my email list...

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....
If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic' and 'different.'
Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you're an American story.
If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, and you're a maverick.
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, then you're well-grounded.
If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, help register 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, 8 years as a State Senator of a district of 750,000 people, chair the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people, sponsor 131 bills, and serve on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works, and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
If your resume is: briefly, local sportscaster, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town of less than 7,000 people, 2 years as governor of a state of 650,000 people, you're qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and even applied for a marriage license to marry the rich heiress 9 months before you were divorced from your ill wife, finally divorced your ill wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
If you teach responsible, age-appropriate sex education, including the use of birth control, you erode the fiber of American society.
If you staunchly advocate abstinence-only education, while your teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're responsible.
If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, you don't represent America's family values.
If your husband is called 'First Dude', has a DWI conviction, didn't register to vote until 25, and was a member of a group that advocated secession of Alaska from the USA, yours is the quintessential American family.

And, finally, if you're famous for your quick temper, you're the one to have your finger on the red nuclear button.
OK, much clearer now.

Hey Andrew,

Glad to hear that your Obama-media has subsided and you have him demoted to a Kerry. It's a good start. But keep watching and listening to this man and his thugs and you will see him for what he is: a socialist. Socialism moves to communism to genocide. Read a couple of history books and research on this man-child and his nefarious background, tactics in politics.
Google these guys: Tony Rezko, William Ayres, Rev. Jeremiah "G.D." America Wright, Louis Farrakan. Obama studied the community organizer tenets of radical Saul Olinsky.

McCain-Palin is for reform- reform of the problems that DEMOCRATS have created in this country from years ago (Carter and Clinton admins) and a Democratic House and Senate.
It breaks my heart to know that the young people, college students and others have fallen for the misinformation and scary politics of this empty suit who is evil.
His fingerprints are ALL over the Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae debacle. So are his "advisors" who are economic advisors. They ALL made millions! Franklin Raines, Christopher Dodd- Obama's "kitchen cabinet" and Obama are up to their EARS in this.

"The Republicans have destroyed the American Economy"

But it was Clinton who repealed the Glass-Steagel act that allowed investment banks to mix themselves up with bad mortgages. It was democrats who encouraged Fannie May and Freddie Mac to extend mortgages to so many people back when interests rates were low who now can't pay them back when they're high. A big part of it is also simply banks having given out loans of their own volition back when rates were low, but that again isn't the bush administration, that banking de-regulation happened during Clinton's years.

The problem here is simply too much de-regulation in some areas (such as investment banks) and too much in others (regulating Fannie May and Freddie Mac to direct them to give out so many mortgages). It was a perfect storm. But until Democrats and Republicans really address these issues, and stop treating them as political cards, we're going to continue only getting one side of the problem being addressed.

Posted by: Andrew | September 17, 2008 3:02 PM

The Republicans have destroyed the American Economy, America's moral standing in the world, and have blindly supported the failed ideology of No Taxes, No Government. They must be stopped.

Maybe Tyrone, but Obama caved on FISA and Democrats like Chris Dodd repeatedly try to slip wording into popular bills which would basically catalog all of our business actions online. The Democratic convention was paid for by AT&T, the whole party is the pocket of the telecoms.

If you're really worried about a slow erosion of or rights and privacy, then you need to support either Ron Paul or Bob Barr. The Democrats are not your party. Back in late 2007 I would have agreed with you, but Obama has become just another democrat since then. Too bad.

In recent weeks, John McCain and the Republican Party have blatantly and without any shame adopted the Democratic campaign theme of “change”. It should be evident to an objective observer that Bush 43 and now McCain and Pailin are mere puppets to the true Republican national party leaders who control their strings. Cheney is one of the few of that inner cabal that have been calling the shots since the Nixon administration. They are in fact a continuation of the Nixon and Ford presidencies with only a disruption during the Carter and Clinton years. Bush 41( Head of the RNC during Nixon, former head of the CIA,VP to Reagan, and president is probably the real leader of this political Cosa Nostra if not a equal partner of this power sharing musical chairs game. His right and left hands have been Dick Cheney(former Sec.of Defense of Bush 41, former White House Chief of staff for Ford) and the other is Donald Rumsfeld(former Sec. of Defense for Ford and Bush 43,former special envoy to the Middle East during Reagan). Another member of this group, more likely a captain if not a full blown boss himself is James Baker (former C.O.S of Reagan, former Under Sec. of Commerce for Ford, former C.O.S and Sec of State for Bush 41, former Sec. of Treasury for Reagan, former chief legal advisor to Bush 43). Another captain or free lance enforcer is Karl Rove a college drop out and campaign manager for both Bush 41 and 43, also for Phil Gram who is McCain’s economic advisor.
Lets look at McCain’s staff of change.
On July 2, 2008, Steve Schmidt was given "full operational control" of McCain's campaign. Steve Schmidt prior to this was a top aide to Dick Cheney and a protégé to Karl Rove. Another advisor is Charles R. Black worked for Ronald Reagan's two Presidential campaigns in 1976 and 1980 and he was a senior political adviser to the 1992 re-election campaign of George H.W. Bush. Another advisor is Randy Scheunemann. He was project director for the Project for the New American Century. A neo-conservative think tank founded by non other than Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Bill Kristol and others in 1996. Other signatories to this group reads like a who’s who of the last 8 years of the republican administration.
These people have never cared about small town america or “values” All they care about is war profiteering. Many of the signatories have never served in the military. Cheney and Rove both dodged the draft. Look at the statement of principles by the PNAC. Rumsfeld was a good friend of Saddam Huessin in the 80’s Cheney didn’t want Nelson Mandela free. These are the real puppet masters, they throw out the talking points about the left of being elitist and not caring about middle america and these same guys other than Rove have advanced degrees and are worth no less than 10 million dollars. People who support them need to extricate their heads out of Limbaugh and Hannity’s asses and see what is really happening to them. McCain is not his own man he confuses stories of his real life with a book he read “The Gulag Archipelago", in which a fellow prisoner - not a guard - silently drew a cross in the dirt with a stick.” An ironic twist to all this is Eliot A. Cohen, a signatory to the PNAC "Statement of Principles", responded in The Washington Post: "There is no evidence that generals as a class make wiser national security policymakers than civilians. George C. Marshall, our greatest soldier statesman after George Washington, opposed shipping arms to Britain in 1940. His boss, Franklin D. Roosevelt, with nary a day in uniform, thought otherwise. Whose judgment looks better?"
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/uselection2008/johnmccain/2581086/John-McCain-accused-of-plagiarising-Wikipedia-for-speeches.html. Even if you don’t like Obama there is no-way a sane person can want this continued blatant fleecing of our Nation.
Thes are all verifiable facts and can be found just with a google searches.
Other than the ultra affluent, how can anyone support the Republican Party? When will small town America realize that they are being duped into supporting the ultra-affluent agenda? The talking points of the right are so hypocritical that it becomes laughable. The red meat of the right is the so called Main stream Media as if Limbaugh, Hannity, et al. are not part of it. They demean celebrity status, however they tout one of their greatest presidents(Reagan) was an actor. They say they are the party of patriotism, yet many of the upper echelon of the party have never served, i.e. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Baker, Reagan. They say that they care about "Main Street" USA but only bail out the Whales of Wall Street. Yet small town America eat this tripe every year. They don't care about religion unless it can be used to stir up the base, nor science or technology unless there is a buck to be made. Small town America takes pride on its freedom but yet don't realize that over time we are becoming less free, ie wire tapping and other forms of domestic surveillance. They demean people of intelligence because they know many people of small town America don't have degrees and use it at a fake issue and call people who spent time in academia as elitist when many on the right serve on university boards and have part-time professorships. They say they are against affirmitive action but yet celebrate mediocrity, Bush43 and McCain graduating at the bottom of their classes. Who both came from already well established families and had all the opportunities and connections to excel. Why does small town America believes this is the party for them? Christian conservatives seem to the be the first ones who want to go to war and bomb someone before any diplomacy is tried. Why can't small town America and Christian conservatives realize they are being used as pawns just as much the Islamic fundamentalist are. Islamic fundamentalist come from small town Middle East and given the same kind of talking points as the evangelicals. They want prayer in school, no choice available to women, and believe to the core that their ideas about worship and country are the best. Wake up small town America you are being duped.
Talking about who is more patriotic, symbols, lipstick and wearing pins are nothing more than distractions to the real issue of how a few select group of people have held power almost continuously for over 30 years. Yes the left has their own political power groups but none have been so effective at pushing forward an agenda that is fundamentally bad for the U.S. and in a larger view the entire world. I stress again the now defunct PNAC and the AIPAC have been slowly pushing us closer to another World War. Bush41 and et al have been doing this and no one calls them on it. Every Republican administration has basically the same people recycled since Nixon. Just do a little research and you will see that these people are just pushing this agenda of some kind of Pax Americana and not taking into account that maybe other nations of the world might not like that and if not bomb them.
Many people who support the Republican party, really need to read "1984" by George Orwell and see how we as nation have been inching closer to that type of society. People think this story is about a communist society, but it is more about how a society is kept in a constant state of fear in order for the ruling class to stay in control. Doublespeak, patriotism to the point of frenzy, censorship, erosion of civil liberties (not respecting the Constitution) is happening right in front of us. The consolidation of government (the executive branch has never been more powerful than ever, gridlocked legislature with only two parties for representation, a judiciary that just kowtows to the executive branch). No real independent journalism. Cameras placed on every street corner. This may sound like delusional conspiracy stuff, but I implore people to research for themselves to really see what is happening to them. People think this could never happen here in the U.S. but it is already happening, slowly, incrementally all under the guise of "keeping America safe"

This is embarrassing. I've totally lost my inspiration about Obama, I'll still vote for him, but I'm no longer excited about him.

Just search Google "Shut up or get out" + Limbaugh, sure, he said that. It's on his site! Same with "Mexicans are stupid and lazy." Sadly for whoever wrote this absurd add, in both cases he was quoting other people for the purpose of criticizing those people and showing the hypocrisy of their positions.

You know, Obama said "The fundamentals of the economy are strong" - sure, he was quoting McCain, but he still said it. Same deal.

This add is essentially lie by omission. For a while there I really thought Obama was different, now he just feels like another Kerry. Oh well, I'll still vote for him.
