Which Candidate Displays Class?

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.



Senator Obama, now the official nominee of the Democrat Party, made his aceptance speech in Denevr last night. Instead of a class act nominee with eloquent speech, he used the time for more of the tired rhetoric of bashing his opponent, Republicans and even traditional America.

Some excerpts from his acceptance speech,

Senator McCain likes to talk about judgment, but, really, what does it say about your judgment when you think George Bush has been right more than 90 percent of the time?
~~~~~~~~~~~
The truth is, on issue after issue that would make a difference in your lives — on health care, and education, and the economy — Senator McCain has been anything but independent.

He said that our economy has made great progress under this president. He said that the fundamentals of the economy are strong.

And when one of his chief advisers, the man who wrote his economic plan, was talking about the anxieties that Americans are feeling, he said that we were just suffering from a mental recession and that we’ve become, and I quote, “a nation of whiners.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I don’t believe that Senator McCain doesn’t care what’s going on in the lives of Americans; I just think he doesn’t know.

Why else would he define middle-class as someone making under $5 million a year? How else could he propose hundreds of billions in tax breaks for big corporations and oil companies, but not one penny of tax relief to more than 100 million Americans?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For over two decades — for over two decades, he’s subscribed to that old, discredited Republican philosophy: Give more and more to those with the most and hope that prosperity trickles down to everyone else.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You know, John McCain likes to say that he’ll follow bin Laden to the gates of Hell, but he won’t even follow him to the cave where he lives.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters.
If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.

In response, Senator McCain said the following,

I think it is obvious who has the class in this campaign.

  1. Awww, and Oilcan Lew goes boo hoo. I think Barack Obama did an outstanding job. Great speech. Hit is out of the park. Still, we all know you hate the black man–and all muslims, and liberals and everyone not 100% white, christian etc. You know, those that don’t share your phoney “traditional american” values. That you have been made clear on more than one occasion. In fact, I am a bit surprised that it took you this long to post your disdain of Senator Obama.

    The reality, everything Obama said is the truth. McSame doesn’t have any record to run on. And the record he does have is pathetic. In fact, I think I have read somewhere on here about McSame’s support of amnesty, his courting of La Raza, his promise to shut down gitmo and bring the terrorists to U.S. soil, his support of the failed campaign in Iraq where he wants to keep troop for 100 years. Even the GOP is running spanish language ads touting McSame’s support for amnesty.

    As for class, try and put lipstick on your wrinkly old pig next week. I suspect your repubicant convection is going to have a pretty fun time.

    P.S. Would you have some bloody respect. When you refer to Senator Barack Obama, you need to call him Obamasiah. That should be a new law for all Repubicants.

  2. I am not an Obama fan….but you got to say he can give a great speech, and that was one of his best. McCain has a tough act to follow.

  3. Victoria should pay attention to this one.
    Not that Lew is innocent of more often bashing the side he least agrees with than promoting the side he most agrees with.

  4. Me, try stringing together a rational and truthful sentence then come back and present your beliefs. So far, you’re striking out spectacularly.

    Honestly, Obama can give a good speech. But the reason that McCain now will have a tough time of it is that he picked a bad VP candidate. Not because she’s a woman but because with Americans concerned about pump prices and supporting oil drilling, she’s babbling the tired old “Big Oil” line and doing her best to make things tough on the oil companies that operate in Alaska. Conservatives were afraid of McCain pulling a stunt like this… and it appears that our concerns were entirely rational. Why couldn’t the idiot Republicans have chosen a candidate that isn’t odious (and oblivious) to the party’s base? -_-

  5. Do I scottiebill?

    Sometimes we are not the best critic of our own views.

    Can you give me some examples where I jumped to speaking negative of the opponent of a candidate I support?

  6. Governor Palin, McSame’s choice for Veep thinks Obama has class. At least on his energy plan. She endorsed it for Pete’s sake. I feel a Palin endorsing Obama coming on.

    Palin Pleased with Obama’s Energy Plan

    Includes Alaska’s Natural Gas Reserves

    August 4, 2008, Fairbanks, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin today responded to the energy plan put forward by the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
    “I am pleased to see Senator Obama acknowledge the huge potential Alaska’s natural gas reserves represent in terms of clean energy and sound jobs,” Governor Palin said. “The steps taken by the Alaska State Legislature this past week demonstrate that we are ready, willing and able to supply the energy our nation needs.”
    In a speech given in Lansing, Michigan, Senator Obama called for the completion of the Alaska natural gas pipeline, stating, “Over the next five years, we should also lease more of the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska for oil and gas production. And we should also tap more of our substantial natural gas reserves and work with the Canadian government to finally build the Alaska natural gas pipeline, delivering clean natural gas and creating good jobs in the process.”
    Governor Palin also acknowledged the Senator’s proposal to offer $1,000 rebates to those struggling with the high cost of energy.
    “We in Alaska feel that crunch and are taking steps to address it right here at home,” Governor Palin said. “This is a tool that must be on the table to buy us time until our long-term energy plans can be put into place. We have already enjoyed the support of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, and it is gratifying to see Senator Obama get on board.”
    The Governor did question the means to pay for Obama’s proposed rebate — a windfall profits tax on oil companies. In Alaska, the state’s resource valuation system, ACES, provides strong incentives for companies to re-invest their profits in new production.
    “Windfall profits taxes alone prevent additional investment in domestic production. Without new supplies from American reserves, our dependency and addiction to foreign sources of oil will continue,” Governor Palin said.

  7. yeah, the old guy that called his wife a CUn* is the one with the class. Nice try. McCain is ruining the Republican parties chances of lowering your taxes and protecting life.

  8. Me

    The reality, everything Obama said is the truth??

    He certainly told the truth about his associate and mentor, the Revenend Wright didn’t he?!!!

    ——————————

    “The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation.”

    Barrack Obama Huffington Post 3/14/2008

    “I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes.”

    Obama is just another aspiring old style demagogue, who will lie and say anything to get elected. This is the change he offers?

  9. Ch2 os Roger

    Interesting you would present only those aspects of the plan with which she agrees.

    In the same interview,

    The Governor did question the means to pay for Obama’s proposed rebate — a windfall profits tax on oil companies. In Alaska, the state’s resource valuation system, ACES, provides strong incentives for companies to re-invest their profits in new production.

    “Windfall profits taxes alone prevent additional investment in domestic production. Without new supplies from American reserves, our dependency and addiction to foreign sources of oil will continue,” Governor Palin said.

    ——————————-

    When interviewed by Maria Bartiromo of CNBC a few days ago she went out of her way to suggest she disagrees with the Obama/Biden view on oil drilling and that drill, drilll drill is a necessary component of any National Energy plan. She also states that the Obama/Biden views scare her and that the immdediate reliance on development of renewal energy sources, which are not proven or economically reliable, will not solve our dependence on foreign in the foreseeable future.

    Ch2,if you really feel she will endorse Obama, please hold your breath!
