Patriotic voters continue to find themselves bedeviled by two opponents: The socialist MSM, and the Republican standard-bearer.
On Monday, CNN aired a campaign advertorial for the man who presently calls himself Barack Obama (Race-IL). The organization presented the advertorial as a news report, but I doubt they fooled anyone. After all, if you watch CNN, you’re likely a socialist or a communist, in which case you would vote for Dunham/Soetoro/Obama, even if he were filmed killing and devouring human babies raw. Alternatively, you’re opposed to him, and are watching for the entertainment value or because you’re a political junkie. (No Republican politician would ever sink to the level of depravity of eating human babies raw; a GOP pol would first cook the babies. Conversely, Gov. Sarah Palin (Pioneer Women-AK) wrestles grizzly bears to the death, and eats them raw.)
Wolf Blitzer was the host, with most or all of the out-of-studio commentary supplied by Democratic operative Dana Bash King, who is married to Democratic operative John King, who is also stationed at CNN. The ad bashed Sen. John McCain (Media-AZ) and Palin. It claimed that experts on the Right and Left alike had denounced McCain’s newest political ad as dishonest, and King emphasized of Palin, “And what she says is carefully scripted with teleprompter.”
What Sen. Barack "Obama" says is also carefully scripted with teleprompter, but Dana King forgot to mention that.
The “conservative” expert in question was Karl Rove. I wonder what angle Rove was working by attacking McCain?
Obama has rejected public financing, calling the system “broken” -- a decision that frees him to continue raising money for November.
McCain has accepted federal matching funds for his general election campaign, giving him $84 million to spend for November. The money comes with strict spending limits, but the Republican National Committee's victory fund can continue to raise and spend money on his behalf.”
Well, not exactly. The truth of the matter is that D/S/O supported public financing, until he opposed it. Public financing is a pillar of Democratic dogma, and D/S/O dutifully supported it, until he saw that he was getting more money in contributions than he would via public financing and, opportunist that he is, “evolved” beyond such “principles.”
But you won’t learn that from CNN, which also took pains to minimize the significance of McCain's acceptance of public financing. D/S/O’s media operatives have been so despicable in their twisting of reality on behalf of The One that recently I caught myself feeling sorry for McCain. That feeling lasted until I read a new series of blogs by VDARE writer, Patrick Cleburne, on McCain’s Hispandering and intention to pass an amnesty for the over 20 million illegal immigrants presently in the country, plus every “cousin” they can bring in through family reunification and chain migration. And since then, as VDARE’sBrenda Walker reports, on September 15 McCain pledged on Spanish-language, Mexican nationalist TV channel Univision that if elected, he will present an amnesty plan for illegal immigrants “in the first day.” (Univision host/Mexican nationalist Jorge Ramos refers to amnesty by the euphemism, “comprehensive immigration reform”; McCain uses the euphemism, “a path to citizenship.”)
Univision’s Jorge Ramos: Senator Barack Obama told us in an interview that he would present a comprehensive immigration reform to congress during the first year. Could you match that?
McCain: Sure, I would do it in the first day, but I was the one who led, I was the one who led with Senator (Ted) Kennedy, a great political risk to myself. Senator Obama tried to kill it, because he was doing what the unions wanted. The unions in America do not want a temporary worker program, so Senator Obama came to the floor and had an amendment that would have basically killed immigration reform, because it was a fragile coalition between republicans and democrats. So, don’t let Senator Obama get away with saying that he supports comprehensive reform, when he tried to kill it.
(Full disclosure: I am also a VDARE contributor.)
And so, I’m back to Square One, with the alternative of voting for a third party candidate, or making my undervote count.
Hey, Sen. McCain, I hope you’re enjoying the bitter fruits of all those years sucking up to the socialist MSM. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
