McCain ad: Tiny


  1. Shades of Jimmy Carter! If this clown gets elected, it’s over for us.

  2. For the right-wing propaganda machine World Net Daily, this has been El Granto Tomas reporting live from his barcalounger.

    I love how “e-mails” are used as evidentiary support. What a crock.

  3. This is for Kathryn and anyone else willing to consider the fact that there are other forces at work in Georgia:

  4. Shawn, you are being blind about that one. It was a video of Obama saying in his own words that he will reduce the defense of our country. Unsaid is that will make us more vulnerable to his Muslim friends! Obama’s supporters have lost all their objectivity in their zeal for him. And one wonders how the Germans could have gone nuts for Hitler.

  5. Hell, Grant we don’t have to go back that far for a comparison.

    Would you believe that there are still some people who think Reagan was a good President despite the damage he did to the US? Talk about your Cult of Personality.

  6. Well, grumps, there you go again. (Wait for snicker…)

    You surprise us with the news that some people think Reagan was a good president. Then you claim he did damage to the U.S. Then you run away and hide.

    Care to elaborate, or is your specialty meaningless one-hit wonders?

  7. Here’s what Obama actually said:
    On May 18, in Pendelton, Ore., Obama said that “strong countries and strong presidents talk to their adversaries. That’s what Kennedy did with Khrushchev. That’s what Reagan did with Gorbachev. That’s what Nixon did with Mao. I mean, think about it. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela—these countries are tiny, compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet, we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, ‘We’re going to wipe you off the planet.’

    “And ultimately, that direct engagement led to a series of measures that helped prevent nuclear war, and over time, allowed the kind of opening that brought down the Berlin Wall,” Obama continued. “Now, that has to be the kind of approach that we take. You know, Iran, they spend one-one hundredth of what we spend on the military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance. And we should use that position of strength that we have, to be bold enough to go ahead and listen. That doesn’t mean we agree with them on everything. We might not compromise on any issues, but at least we should find out other areas of potential common interest, and we can reduce some of the tensions that has caused us so many problems around the world.”

    He does not actually suggest that Iran is not a problem or that Iran should be ignored. Rather, he says–and you can’t tell me this isn’t true–that if we talked to big threats like China or the Soviets, why shouldn’t we talk to smaller threats like Iran? The ad leaves a false impression. But I suppose we shouldn’t expect much more the way McCain’s campaign has been scraping the bottom of the barrel lately.

  8. What surprises me is how many Obama-loving liberals bother to come onto conservative’s blogs and squeak and holler. Why not go to a like-minded person’s blog and have a lovefest there? You all won’t change our minds and we won’t change your minds so why waste each others time? It’s rather confusing to me how the liberals haunt the conservative blogs and spew out their vile message of hate for Bush and ignore the Democratic Congress that has done absolutely nothing constructive for the last four years. During their twenty year rein of complete power prior to Reagan all they did was institute the Great Society and put us on the road to the welfare state. They certainly have nothing to boast about as far as I can tell other than making most Americans dependent on government rather than on themselves.

  9. Grant, I don’t kick the conservatives off of my blog.

    I also try not t0 post ads that are blatantly false.
