Dems react to Palin’s speech

Posted by Cullin on September 4, 2008

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe sent out a quite funny, ineffective message to supporters in light of Governor Palin’s address she gave at the Republican National Convention.  Of course this message was posted on someone’s blog as just the message and nothing else, because like all good sheep, the obama-nation does as it’s told.  Let’s break this down and find his failings as well as the out-right lies he tells in support of his candidate.

First, he tries to act as though this message was spur of the moment, saying that he was just so outraged that he had to do something.  Are you buying it?  I’m not.

Then of course they say that “McCain’s attack squad” lied, without showing any proof.  Actually a lack of proof is a constant for the rest of his message.  In the same paragraph he tries to project the GOP’s criticism of Obama onto the rest of the campaign.  Now, obviously noting that a candidate doesn’t have the right qualifications to be president isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it just means that he shouldn’t be president.  I would believe that most people feel they shouldn’t be president.  I know I shouldn’t.

Now, my favorite line in the entire thing is “But worst of all — and this deserves to be noted — they insulted the very idea that ordinary people have a role to play in our political process.”  As if Obama is some sort of average Joe you’d go to work with everyday anyways.  Then the campaign manager tells readers what we know, because everyone is too dumb to think for themselves.  I mean, that is the whole party platform, “let us do unto you, because you can’t do for yourself.”

Then they ask for money.  See, projecting criticism to rile anger for a reason.  And, Jesus, their way of asking was great.  Basically, “give them the what-for by giving us some money”

Then they say that when Palin and Giuliani express that being a community organizer is not experience for being president, it’s somehow mocking community organizers as a whole.  He probably would be a little more convincing if he would get his head out of his ass every once in a while.

He tries to rally support of the huge  pro-community organizers lobby with, “community organizing is how ordinary people respond to out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies.” (That was in bold in the letter) Out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies?  I would say that reminds me of Obama, but he really doesn’t have any policies of his own, I guess I could just say the failed policies that he was told to support by his superiors.

Blah-blah, ordinary people, yadda yadda.  They try to make the fallacious equation of Bush and McCain.

And, they wrap up with this gem, absolutely bursting with irony, lies, and blatant hypocrisy, “It’s now clear that John McCain’s campaign has decided that desperate lies and personal attacks — on Barack Obama and on you — are the only way they can earn a third term for the Bush policies that McCain has supported more than 90 percent of the time.”

Desperate lies and personal attacks?  Hmm, were we just supposed to forget about everything from the last 5 days?  You want to talk about desperate lies and personal attacks, let’s look at what the Obama campaign has been doing to Gov. Palin.

Of course they add the “and you.”  They’re using this as a way to establish the opponent not as a contender in the presidential race, but rather someone who wants to kill your dog and eat your babies.  It’s nothing more than creating support by demonizing the opponent, one would hope that people could see through this.

Then, they once again try to equate Bush and McCain, saying that McCain supports 90 percent of Bush’s policies.  Of course, they tried to get this number based on votes in the senate, most of which are procedural votes and votes for the naming of post offices and a  bunch of other useless crap this democrat led congress has done.  They also don’t mention that Obama supports the dems 100 percent of the time.

That’s a 0% chance of real change.

Oh, and they ask for money again.
