What do you do when your Campaign is in trouble, and you have no real answers for the current crisis and topics:
KARL ROVE STYLE POLITICS:
PAINT THE OTHER GUY AS A TERRORIST OR UN-AMERICAN. A.ka. Make a Vietnam vet like Kerry look worse than a draft dodging puppet.
Typical Republican Smear Machine Bullshit. It Won't work this time though. Someone posted in these forums wrote about what good things came out of an Iraq War = People are Not easily scared into voting for what they suspect is wrong.
We saw it in the 1st Bank bailout attempt, when the Bush Admin. wanted a blank check with no oversight, everyone started writing in and saying: "wait a miinute, we don't trust you that much anymore" and made them have to revise it, before passing.
People are Opening their eyes to these type of Smear Politics, and Scare Tactics, you can see it in the Polls. Obama has made more points during this whole week of attacks by simply calling out the Campaign as being out of touch. The economy is going to shit and Obama is discussing it, while McCains Campaign is making smear attacks. McCain has let his cronies and the right media (Hanitty, Limbaugh) make it worse. It worked last time, but NOT THIS TIME.
Did you see that old lady the other night at a McCain Rally saying she didn't trust Obama cause she read he was Muslim. LOL. CLASSIC. McCain had to admit that some of the insinuations his Republican hitmen are making are not true. I liked that he finally admitted that.
Finally some straight talk again. keep it up.
