Until now, Obama has only sent out marching orders to his “digital brownshirts”, people who hide behind a computer screen. This is how it’s worked, as described by The Washington Times:
A message goes out over Barack Obama’s Web site with the names, phone numbers and e-mails of editors and producers foolish enough to host Obama critics. With Mr. Obama’s extensive digital following, and his extensive fund-raising and contact lists, shutting up the Democratic nominee’s critics with a fraction of Mr. Obama’s millions of supporters is relatively simple. The digital legions plug phone lines, crash servers and intimidate the advertisers of these media outlets. This must be another instance of the “new” politics that Mr. Obama frequently talks about.
The latest incident, reported in the Chicago Tribune, “orchestrated a massive stream of complaints on the phone lines of Tribune Co.-owned WGN-AM in Chicago. “The offense: The station hosted National Review’s David Freddoso, author of ‘The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate,’ a fair and rigorous but adversarial examination of Mr. Obama’s record. Surely, we can’t have any of that.
Now Obama is sounding a new call:
“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” he said.
“And if they tell you that, ‘Well, we’re not sure where he stands on guns.’ I want you to say, ‘He believes in the Second Amendment.‘ If they tell you, ‘Well, he’s going to raise your taxes,’ you say, ‘No, he’s not, he’s going lower them.’ You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case.”
Well, if the Obamabots are going to be armed with Obama’s dishonest spin, to wreak havoc across the country, like the flying monkeys in the The Wizard Of Oz, it’s only fair that we be armed with the facts to dispute their spin. Because with Obama…it’s ALL spin…always. He does not have the facts on his side.
What basis is there for voters to believe that Obama would protect the second amendment? He has obviously tried to project a moderate position on gun control during his presidential campaign. But as always, with Obama, you have to look at his record on gun control to find the truth.
Obama did endorse the Il handgun ban.
A 1996 questionnaire put out by a voting group offers better insight to Obama’s actual position:
Both versions of the 1996 questionnaires provide answers his presidential campaign disavows to questions about whether Obama supports capital punishment and state legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.”
He responded simply “No” and “Yes,” respectively, to those questions on both questionnaires.
Obama doesn’t say he changed his mind. He blames staffers for filling out the form for him with liberal views not his own, even though an amended version of the questionnaire contains Obama’s own handwritten notes added to one answer.
This is a dishonest man, people!
Obama tells his minions to parrot the spin that he’s going to lower taxes?
Seriously, he might want to inform his V.P. choice about his plan to lower taxes, because Biden is running around saying that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do:
Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
YEEHAW!!! Baseball, hot-dogs, apple pie, and higher taxes!
He proposes to lower some taxes while raising others. That’s what socialists do. It’s called redistribution of wealth, or as Biden says:
We want to take money (from those awful awful rich folks) and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.”
Here’s how progressive the tax law already is:
- According to data from the IRS, the bottom 50 percent of income earners pay approximately 4 percent of income taxes.
- The top 25 percent of income earners pay nearly 83 percent of the income tax burden, and the top 10 percent pay 65 percent.
- The top 1 percent of income earners pay almost 35 percent of all income taxes.
- The top 400 richest Americans paid 1.58 of total income taxes in 2000.
Socialists are liars, because to them, the end justifies the means. Can you say Saul Alinsky?
Intriguing thought: Ace wonders if the guy who hacked into Governor Palin’s email account is one of Obama’s loyal cultists, “inspired by the Obama Action Wire tactics to commit a crime on behalf of his God”.
Barack Obama has the unmitigated gall to mock McCain, in the wake of the Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac debacle, for bragging “about how as chairman of the Commerce Committee in the Senate, he had oversight of every part of the economy”, while at the same time, Obama himself took an outrageous amount of campaign contributions from them:
“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (were) started by the Clinton Administration. Two senators received more campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac than all others from 1989 – 2008. Number 1 – Senator Chris Dodd (D). . . .Number 2 – Senator John Kerry (D). . . . Number 3 – Senator Barack Obama (D) . . .How did Barack Obama do this after only four years as a senator?
McCain, on the other hand, tried to sound the alarm about these companies three years ago:
Which candidate foresaw the credit crisis and tried to do something about it? As it turns out, John McCain did — and partnered with three other Senate Republicans to reform the government’s involvement in lending three years ago, after an attempt by the Bush administration died in Congress two years earlier.
Do they really want to get into a discussion about Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac?
Get in my face, Obamonkeys….MAKE MY DAY!
