OHypocrite Alert: OBama Claims McCain Ads “Distract Voters from Real Issues.” Obama Opts out of 10 Townhall Debates on “Real Iissues.”
It doesn’t get any more ridiculous than this.
“The One” reaches for the high road by stating that McCain’s latest ads “distract voters from the real issues.” But then in the same press release (via AP) OGaffemeister opts out of 10 Town Hall debates on the “real issues.”
A perfect McCain ad in the making?
Who said Obama had no energy policy?
Viewing Tip: The Clueless One clearly loses train of thought at about 10 seconds (with some nonsense about “saving all the oil they’re, uh, uh, talking about getting off drilling”) and then questions his own “inflate tires” advice at 15 seconds.
Once again, no teleprompter, no clue.
Now we get the truth behind the snub. According to NBC News (of all places), Obama nixed the military base visit after being told that no cameras and no media would be permitted. With that, Senator GDamn went off to the gym and snubbed the very troops he wants to lead.
One word: Disgrace. Two Words: GOP ad.
This from NBC:
One military official who was working on the Obama visit said because political candidates are prohibited from using military installations as campaign backdrops, Obama’s representatives were told, “he could only bring two or three of his Senate staff member, no campaign officials or workers.”
In addition, “Obama could not bring any media. Only military photographers would be permitted to record Obama’s visit.”
The official said “We didn’t know why” the request to visit the wounded troops was withdrawn. “He (Obama) was more than welcome. We were all ready for him.”
It doesn’t get any more hypocritical than this. Just last week OKnow-it-All scolded Bush’s plan to attend.
This from USA Today:
Democrat Barack Obama took issue Monday with President Bush’s decision to attend the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games, saying he would go to Beijing only if he saw progress between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama.
Of course, giving money to NBC to propagandize his likeness throughout the entire China-hosted games is, I guess, not as harmful as Bush attending the Opening Ceremony. Yeah, right.
And we’re sure to hear some pretzel-like reasoning from Camp OExcuse.
This from Advertising Age:
It’s official. Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign will be among the TV sponsors of NBC Universal’s Olympics coverage. In the first significant network-TV buy of any presidential candidate in at least 16 years, the Obama campaign has taken a $5 million package of Olympics spots that includes network TV as well as cable ads.
My opinion: Why spend $5 million with NBC when they already give him billions in free advertorial every week via MSNBC, Nightly News, MTP, etc. Or is this a legit way to pay back NBC for all the past (and future) three-up-my-leg coverage?
Secondly, this is pretty scary stuff. First his decision to change venues in Denver (to the more dictator-like theatrics of a 75,000 outdoor arena). Then his Hitler-like speech in Berlin. And now sponsoring the friggin’ Olympics? Are you serious? I mean it seems almost Mussolini-like. The Olympics are brought to you by Coca-Cola, Exxon Mobil, Bank of America, and Obama.
This is just delicous. According to MichelleMalkin.com, a thug rapper named Nas, who walks around wearing a “nigger” shirt (and threatens a race war if Obama loses), has joined forces with MoveOn.org in condemning FOX News as racist.
Here’s some of Nas’ wholesme lyrics where he threatens a race war if whitey defeats Obama (note: “guns” is poetic for “votes,” and “KKK” is just your “typical white person” in the hood).
What’s the black pres’ thinkin on election night?
Is it, “How can I protect my life? Protect my wife? Protect my rights?”
Every other president was nuttin’ less than white
‘Cept Thomas Jefferson and mixed Indian blood and Calvin Coolidge
KKK is like, “What the fuck!”, loadin they guns up
Loadin up mines too, ready to ride
And the “fairy tale” continues… You can’t make this stuff up.
This is either: A.) A bold-faced lie on the world stage… or B.) He’s been so busy running for president (since the day he was elected in ’04) he doesn’t remember his committee assignments.
Viewing Tip: Note, he says “just this past week, we…” and then pausing realizing he’s been on his Magical Make Believe I’m President Tour “just this past week.”
Fact: Here’s the U.S. Senate’s Banking Committee roster.
Fact 2: Here’s Obama’s Committee assignments (no Banking).
UPDATE: CBS News’ Kevin Dunn attempts to provide cover for Obama’s latest gaffe (or verbal flub).
It’s true that Obama flubbed that sentence, but that’s all it was: a verbal flub. What he meant was that the Banking Committee had recently reported out a bill that included some provisions from a bill he cosponsored in 2007. So he should have said “my provisions,” or something like that, not “my committee.”
Got it? He meant to say that the Banking Committee passed a bill that included parts of another bill from another committee that he cosponsored in another year.
Yep. That works.
The speech in Berlin is not, repeat not, a “political event.” Because, as Team Ego says, “when the president of the United States goes and gives a speech, it is not a political speech of political rally.”
One problem – as even the ass-licking liberal press spoke up to – he is NOT the “president of the United States.”
This is pretty extraordinary. A candidate for the American Presidency is using flyers printed in German to turn people out for his campaign rally in Berlin on Thursday. This flyer can be found on a bilingual page on BarackObama.com advertising the event … The German flyers bear Obama’s campaign logo and say “Paid for by Obama for America.” …
So, this isn’t just some sober, high-minded foreign policy speech, part of a foreign trip occurring under the auspices of his official Senate office. It is a campaign rally occuring on foreign soil. They are using the same tactics to turn out Germans to an event as they would to any rally right here in America.
