I’ve got a feeling I know this guy – or someone like him.
Here’s a link to NYP. They have the video for now.
Some memorable lines from the debate:
1. After the 43rd time of Obama saying he’s going to defeat George Bush, John McCain said, “I know George Bush. And Senator, I’m no George Bush.”
2. After the 43rd time of eloquent speech, John McCain said, “He talks purty, don’t he?”
3. When the subject of Ayers came up, John McCain said, “I don’t care if he hangs around terrorists, but, Joe Plumber does.”
All right, already. You caught me. McCain didn’t say those things.
He did say, “If you wanted to run against George Bush, you should have run 4 years ago.”
McCain did talk about Obama’s Eloquence and what a load of dung it is. Read between the lines.
McCain did try to draw lines to Obama’s associations with Ayers and Acorn. I don’t know why he didn’t say that character matters. He could have opened with, “20 years ago, I made a mistake. Since then, I’ve worked hard to combat corruption in government, I’ve earned the scars that go with being a maverick. And character matters to Joe Plumber. Senator Obama launched his career in the living room of a known terrorist, he sat on a board and collaborated with him. He benefited from a $300M Home Purchase deal with Tony Rezko in the background. And now, we are finding out about his associations with ACORN which has done more to earn the distrust of Joe Plumber than any organization regarding the validity of elections.”
He didn’t drive the wedge as forcefully as he should have regarding Abortion and the Supreme Court. This could have been the knock out punch and McCain didn’t deliver it. He approached with Obama voted present 130 times in the Illinois senate. A passionate description of Nurse Stanek’s experience holding a born alive aborted baby while he died could have sealed the deal.
This election may be about the missed opportunities to send this ultra liberal candidate back to the senate to while away the years like Ted Kennedy has, continuing to stuff the pork away.
You Catholics out there should be ashamed of supporting Barack Obama. There are other qualified candidates that don’t support On Demand destruction of human life. If you need some recommendations, ask.
