"What you won't hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, patriotism as a bludgeon, that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize. Because we may call ourselves democrats and republicans, but we are Americans first. But we are always Americans first" Barack Obama June 3rd 08".MMhmmm. Yep democrats don't smear or demonize. WTF. I'm not drinking the kool-aid thanks anyway. My BS flag is waving hard and high.
This is politics folks. Why is it that so many on the Obama train can't get over us peeps disagreeing and making fun of Obama? Its what politico's do. OK so some intellectual types that can't handle a little sarcastic bashing will say that it isn't "right" or "let's get back to the issues". Snore. I am a concerned American like everyone else but this pussy-footing aroud candidates is so grade school. Americans should rise above and go BEYOND the smear and the negative politics. I say HORSE HOCKEY!...SMEAR JOCKEY POLITICS IS what makes America great. Dirty politics has been around for centuries why stop and hug each other now? This website is so lame. Sorry it is. I don't think Obama can take the heat. Imagine Bush putting up a website to stop the smearing of him. OOPS, sorry forgot they aren't smears they are all true. America is getting more and more babyish. Don't call me unpatriotic, don't label me, don't use Obama's middle name, don't say mean things about candidates, that's an attack ad, this campaign will not go negative, denounce this, denounce that, leave my wife alone, you hate Obama you are racist, don't say McCain is old, yadda yadda yadda! I say, say it all! Memo to: spouters of the mouth: say it and own it.
So when Obama called-out the lending industry, Countrywide specifically, and then hired a Fannimae guy who helped him get better loans than most hard working americans, is that a smear? Yep a hypocritical one at best.
Obama is a micro manager. He is so afraid of the smears that he is going to squash them before they get legs. Fine. He's a baby. Nobody cares whether or not he's a Muslim. Nobody cares whether or not Michelle called people "whitey", though her pastor did, it doesn't seem like a stretch. The people spreading these smear rumors aren't voting for Obama anyway...deal with it. Or is it because he thinks that Americans are swayed so easily by every wind of information that he can on one hand, sway them to his side, like he does with his speeches, and on the other they can be swayed yet again, away from him. This appears to be on the controlling side and applying the wishy washy label to most voters. maybe its true, but that's politics folks. Smear, defame, rip, tear, name call, spread rumors, gossip, dig for dirt and lie. Get nasty. Its the American way and all this "be nice" and "stick to the issues" sh** is under my skin. We know what the issues are, must we constantly re-hash and re-hash the obvious. Sometime a break from the constant battle of ideology is needed. So we smear. If it wasn't true there wouldn't be any National Enquirer magazines. People who can't stand to have bad things said about them shouldn't be President. Its a jungle out there folks. Fight the anti-smear crowd. They are taking away our blogging material. Now that is uncalled for!
