New McCain Ad Uses Biden's Words Against Obama

By Ed O'Keefe in The Trail:

DENVER -- You knew this was coming.

The McCain campaign has released a new TV ad that features statements by Sen. Joe Biden criticizing Barack Obama's experience and praising the presumptive GOP nominee.

"Is he ready?" George Stephanopoulos asks Biden at an August 2007 debate. "You said, 'I think he can be ready but right now, I don't believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.'"

"I think that I stand by the statement," Biden says, seen standing directly next to Obama.

And of John McCain, Biden says: "I would be honored to run with or against John McCain, because I think the country would be better off."

They have such an easy answer to that. The comment about what he thinks of Mccain was taken out of context from I believe 2000. He counters that with he believes the Mccain of 2000 is not the Mccain of 2008 which. Mccai has sold out his convictions. It will make Mccain even look worse.

By the way, If Mccain picks Romney. Mccain called him a pig along with a lot of other stuff. It will be really funny those two running together.

Here's an idea. How about McCain putting out an ad that isn't about Obama? Could he maybe be specific on some policies? Maybe say some of his ideas or plans, besides this notion of 'victory' in Iraq? I mean seriously, is that how his whole campaign is going to be? Smears, but no context on what he plans on doing? When will McCain put out a McCain ad?

When he says that he approves these ads, who is John McCain looking up to with such satisfaction?

George W. Bush?

Do we want a president to lead the country or are we only interested in a president who knows how to start wars?

The American military can always deliver a victory. The question is, are the American people smart enough to give the military a smart leader?

McCain wants, terribly badly, to go out as a war-time president.

Barack wants to govern our country and its people toward to a more perfect union.

For the simple minded, these are your choices. Choose one, then shut up and live with.

Scape·goat·ism

The act or practice of assigning blame or failure to another,
as to deflect attention or responsibility away from oneself.
Also called scapegoating.

McCain and the Republican Party:
A party that pratices scapegoating!

McCain will pick billionaire NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his VP because Bloomberg is to be installed by international bankers and financiers to continue big profit$$$ from privatizing US government's programs, infrastructure and jobs.

Lyndon LaRouche predicts McCain will install billionaire NYC Mayor Bloomberg to be his VP tomorrow as per oligarghy made up of international bankers and financiers. He will fulfill their agenda of privatizing U.S. government's programs, infrastructure and jobs for big profit$$$ as the depressing economy threatens their wealth.

The country is going into a major economic depression with over 5000 banks are already bankrupt today with more day by day.

Hillary was rid of because she would fix the economy by bringing back President FDR's economic Bretton Woods policy to fix current economic collapse. This policy caters to the 80% of the forgotten people and threatens the oligarghy's wealth and whose ultimate goal is to rid of all governments, peoples' sovereingties and Constitutions and ultimately install fascism.

JOHN 'SYDNEY' MCSHAME ENGAGES THE AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE WITH 'SMEAR AND FEAR' ROVIAN POLITICS....

Not 4 more, NOT 4 MORE, NOT 4 MORE, EIGHT IS ENOUGH....

Enough of the politics of Fear and Smear and Lies and CRONISIM. McShame has INSULTED OUR AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE and ENGAGED OUR AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE WITH FEARS SMEARS AND LIES....

This is the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEES PLATFORM...'Smear FEAR and LIES" If this is what they have for their upcoming convention...I believe more REPUBLICANS WHO HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE AND UNDERSTANDING AND GUTS will cross party lines FOR REAL...And vote for Senator Barrack Obama The NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

How Dare the RNC insult our goodness and INTELLIGENCE with the POLITICS OF FEAR AND SMEAR. We are not CLUELESS....The RNC and John Sydney McBush McSame McShame are deserving of nothing more than the UNEQUIVICAL HANDING OF THEIR HEADS IN A LANDSLIDE DEFEAT...A defeat from the GOODNESS OF ALL AMERICANS, those that hold to HONOR TRUTH INTEGRITY AND CHARACTER AND VIRTUE.

They are insulting our American intelligence as our allies and enemies take note and WONDER AT THE silliness of our POLITICS...
