Seems nicer than reality, still

also discussed here

It had to have been this poll

The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain’s “Joe the plumber” analogy struck a chord.

What Obama really meant was

Today Obama told reporters his tax plan doesn’t “spread wealth” but “does involve spreading around opportunity.”

“That does mean people like myself making more than $250,000 pay a little bit more,” he said.

RNC responded

“Obama believes that raising taxes to ‘spread the wealth’ will create ‘opportunity.’ If Obama does not prescribe to socialism, then what economic theory does he follow? Obama apparently believes government creates jobs, which is why he wants to raise taxes on hard-working Joes.”

My question is: what about all the sycophants telling us “spreading the wealth” was a good thing? out of luck I guess. And does Joe the Plumber get his job back now? His reputation? or he still has to pay for …Misunderstanding”?

Those of you who missed, forgot the rules of W.O.R.M. – your chance to catch up

America’s fastest-growing quiz sensation is “What Obama Really Meant.” Here’s how W.O.R.M. is played…

So, who are you gonna believe, Obama or your lying eyes?

True Obama mocked Joe

and basically said he didn’t exist (just like us, PUMAs)

But he tells you now, this never happened. So, you better forget it and give him the voters he is entitled to, you racist rdnecks.

Update

I wonder if he also made a mistake in 2001 when he talked about redistribution of wealth as the unrealized civil right

So, the question is now, which time didn’t you mean “spreading around wealth”? When talking to joe or back in 2001?

Palin gave PUMAs a gracious nod – thank you

“When it came time for choosing, somehow Barack Obama just couldn’t bring himself to pick the woman who got 18 million votes in his primary, and that seems to be too familiar a story isn’t it?” Palin said at a rally in Henderson, NV yesterday. “How it is for so many American women that the qualifications are there, but for some reason the promotion never comes?

Wonderful words I was so longing to hear:

“You’ve got to ask yourself why was Senator Hillary Clinton not even vetted by the Obama campaign?” Palin continued. “Why did it take 24 years, an entire generation from the time Geraldine Ferraro made her pioneering bid until the next time that a woman was asked to join a national ticket?”

“In the long history of our country, 74 people have held the position of President or Vice-President, and why have the major parties given America only two chances to even consider a woman for either office?” Palin asked. “This glass ceiling, it is still there, but it’s about time that we shattered that glass ceiling once and for all.”

You go Sarah!

Palin and that other guy too!

The CBS write-up on this

contains also the direct challenve over what Obama pays his staff

Palin said that Obama “talks a good game” about equal pay for women, but his record does not match his rhetoric.

“According to the Senate pay roll records women on his own staff get just 83 cents for every dollar that the men get,” Palin said. “That’s $9,000 less every year that he pays the guys.
“Does he think that the women aren’t working as hard? Does he think that they are 17 percent less productive? And Barack Obama cant say that this is just the way that its always been done around the Capitol, because I know one senator who actually does pay equal wages for equal work, Sen. John McCain.”

and the best part is the non-answer from the campaign:

Obama senior advisor Anita Dunn issued the following response: “Senator Obama has fought for equal pay for an equal day’s work, while Senator McCain has suggested that women don’t get equal pay because they need more education and training. While Senator Obama has proposed a plan to help working women, the McCain-Palin campaign offers just more negative attacks and distortions.”

Besides the non-denial of the damning facts, I would like the time and place of those battles for equal pay Obama is supposed to have fought. So far, I am only aware of the women he abusively fought.

I enjoyed throroughly reading this entry


Mean while, back in PUMA land

Crystal the Democrat read Glenn Beck the riot act. I will paraphrase (with poetic license) as to the gist of her rant.

“What the hell is WRONG with you people? Is it just not IN you to say something positive about McCain? Obama scares the bejeasus out of me and you people are NOT helping. It’s like you WANT Obama elected rather than putting McCain in the Whitehouse for some balance to the government.”

after more details on what was said, the final sommation is priceless

Now. I do not know if Crystal is a PUMA, but I’m betting she is — because from what I’ve read on the PUMA sites these people take no prisoners and are full tilt scorched earthing McCain into office if it takes their last breath whether they like him or not.

My fellow Republicans — we are not worthy.

Now get off your asses and find positive things to say about McCain to anyone who will listen! This fight isn’t over and it’s a sad day indeed when there are Democrats fighting harder for our candidate than us.

The irony of that graphic doesn’t escape me

It used to be Cheney would tell us in 2004 that if we pick Kerry, terraists will gonna get us. Now, the same idiocy comes from Obama’s campaign, courtesy of gaffe prone Biden.This video is showing us what was said vs what media allowed people to know

Update

And now Obama agrees with Biden

Obama, for his part, has made the demonstrably dumb decision to back-up Biden’s comments. Incredibly, Obama himself agreed that he would face a national security crisis soon after taking office: “The next President is going to be tested no matter who it is,” Obama said today, after earlier noting that he expects the next President to be “severely tested.”

Albright also agrees that we vote Obama, we die

Responding to last weekend’s comments by Obama’s vice presidential running mate Joe Biden — who said Obama would be tested within the first six months of his administration — Albright told CNN’’s John Roberts, “It’s just a statement of fact.

All righty then.

And it seems there was even more in those remarks

The outakes of his Sunday remarks don’t begin to capture the magnitude of what he said. After warning the crowd that there would be some sort of international incident – Biden could think of four or five scenarios – he told the donors: “We’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”

and it won’t be any better on the economy:

“I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? . . . Why is this thing so tough? . . . I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point, because you’re going to have to reinforce us.

“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision.’ “

Interestingly enough, the media hid this from us – still is except got the lone column in the NY Post.
