Well, there's been a couple of developments on the old campaign trail today. A McCain supporter at a McCain rally said she was scared of Obama because she's read that he's an Arab. Which goes to prove my point that uneducated people reading uneducated, hateful, and/or ignorant radical right wing blogs that promulgate lies and spread fear is rampant and far-reaching. See an interview with the same woman after the rally here. Another man at the rally said he was scared of an Obama presidency. My guess is he has been reading the same extreme right wing blogs. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! Look at the erratic and unpredictable behavior of your candidate. See my previous post for a few examples. It has been said that the way a candidate runs his campaign is indicative of the way he will run his presidency. If you think the economy is bad now, wait till you have a McCain presidency, whose flailing and floundering ideas and policies will cause our economic problems to be magnified to no end. His latest bright idea is for taxpayers to buy up all the bad mortgages out there, which will reward the banks who have caused all these problems in the housing market, cause all the taxpayers to lose, and will not solve the problem. Even the best fiscal conservatives are scratching their heads and denouncing this plan. Well, nevertheless, John McCain actually did right today, after all his nasty, negative ads, his allegations in his stump speeches this week, Palin's attacks on Obama, and the despicable behavior and outbursts of his supporters at those speeches. McCain actually did defend Obama today. I guess the polls have shown that all his negativity has proven detrimental and now his conscience is catching up with him. Oh, but of course, that was only after he released an ad earlier in the day saying Obama lied about his relationship with Bill Ayers. Still negative with the ads and trying to be positive in front of the people.
The other thing today, was of course, the bipartisan legislative council released a report in Alaska that Sarah Palin did indeed abuse the power of her office and broke ethics laws by trying to have her ex-brother-in-law fired. But she did not break any state laws because it was within her right to fire Walt Monegan for any or no reason. The McCain campaign responded by saying, in effect, "See, we told you she didn't break any laws and this whole thing was Obama supporters stirring up trouble." Wo, hold on here. As I recall, the council consisted of 10 Republicans and only 4 Democrats. This investigation was in the works well before Sarah Palin was announced as McCain's running mate, and the council voted UNANIMOUSLY to release the results of their investigation. It seems like the only ones pushing their weight around were Sarah and Todd Palin and not Barack Obama's supporters. It's funny that Palin and McCain continue to say Obama is a liar. Looks like Palin and McCain haven't been exactly forthcoming, have they??
