Is the Media Measuring the Drapes for Obama?

Oct 28, 2008 Full story: tunedin.blogs.time.com 225

God help me, I think I actually agree with Matt Drudge about something. In a banner headline this morning (since replaced) Drudge ran together the names of a bunch of news organizations (including TIME) and asked, "Can They All Be Wrong?" The question wasn't specific, but since it including pretty much everyone who's been polling the Presidential campaign, it seemed to refer to the increasingly voiced sentiment that the election is over and Barack Obama has won.

Republicans and Share The Wealth
Tax The Middle Class Bail out the Rich

Proposed by Nixon, signed by Ford, expanded by Regan and then BUSH, the Earned Income Tax Credit is the biggest share the tax money program ever.
If Republicans put into practice their campaign slogans, then the Republican policy should have eliminated the EITC. Thee EITC has gone up every year passed by Republicans supported by Republican Presidents Nixon, Ford, Regan and BUSH. The biggest "Redistributors" are the BUSHES and they puppet McCAin who supports the taxing of middle class workers to pay for tax programs to help the rich get richer. The Wall St CEOs get paid more in a year than the average worker makes in a life time. And now the rich corporations are moving jobs overseas to 'save money' translated to screw the workers in America.

The more you hear from the Republican campaign the more facts you see do not hold up in support of the trickle down on the workers. The big spend, spend, spend slogan is now defunt as we know who has spent the last 10 Trillion we had, BUSH and his Republican redistributors.

Let's go have a beer.

Let's get an idea or two in our minds, that we CAN save this country from the ravaging scum that support Bush et al...

A new company would help: Whitewater... to counterattack Blackwater...(no reference to any previous scandal, nor in any way racist)

Next time you use a DIEBOLD money machine, and ask for a paper receipt, ask yourself "why won't their voting machines cut me a small square of paper, saying I voted for GORE/KERRY/OBAMA?"

Snooze you can lose,

Of course they are! By the way, is Obama's grandma dead yet? It sounded like she was on her last leg?

Or, did Obama just need a get-away to a remote place to do some business...you know, millions of dollars of business.

Never in US history the liberal Marxist and pro radical Islamic media led by New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, Times Newsweek among others conspired to shove into the American throat a Trojan Horse the America constitution hater and Islamic world Messiah named Barack Hussein Obama.
The question for each and every American is why should he vote for Islamic African of the Luo tribe Barack Hussein Obama who broke multiple of US laws, collaborated with American enigmatic terrorists, anarchists, Islamic terrorists and Marxists?
Barack Hussein Obama is a major hazard to the national security of America, its economy and foundation as he breaking US laws and uses all means to become US ruler with the Pelosi &co anarchist Marxist and America hater Democrats.
Barack Hussein Obama is a fake phony fraud who broke US laws by hiding his identity as an African born, Indonesia Islamic Madrassa education and nationality with no American Birth certificate to present to US court that forbid him from becoming US president.
Barack Hussein Obama is a fake phony fraud who broke US laws by using the street gangs of Acorn to fabricate more than million fake votes in order to win the elections in the most fraudulent means.
Barack Hussein Obama is a fake phony fraud who broke US laws by using hundreds of million dollars to finance of his election campaign from Islamic terrorist organizations of the Middle East including Hamas of Gaza under the Iranian regime of Ahmadinajad, Moamar Khadafy the radical Islamic tyrant of Libya and Odinga Obama his cousin the leader of the radical Islamic party of the Kenyan Luo tribe who killed hundreds of Christians in cold blood in Kenya during 2008 says it all.
The tight connections during years between Barack Hussein Obama with the PLO Islamic terrorist leader Rashid Khalidi, the Black panthers Islamic leader Khalid al Mansour who financed his studies in Harvard Law School by donation of radical Islamic Saudi prince, means that Barack Hussein Obama present a major national security risk to our US troops as Commander in Chief who was called the Islamic Messiah by Louis Farrakhan of the Blacks’ nation of Islam.
Barack Hussein Obama relations with US worst enemies the Islamic terrorists which he was trying to hide by going to Christian Church of the Whites and America hater Jeremiah Wright means that he is dangerous to America.
It is wrong for the Hollywood Elites, ACLU lawyers, Marxist liberal Jews and anarchist Marxist and pro-Islamic media led by New York and LA Times to hide the tape of his connection with Rashid Khalid the Islamic terrorist that prove that Barack Hussein Obama is a true Muslim who hide his true identity as fake phony fraud African candidate.

Sounds to me that you saying, "See... the Republicans were all about sharing the wealth, so that just proves that Obama's plan to do the same is OK too"

Are you admitting that Obama's policy really is to 'spread the wealth' around?

Likewise, are you suggesting that the EITC isn't enough even though it has been in effect for 33 years and been increasing every year? Obama wants more on top of that? Is that it? It's not enough? So, more is better?

From the IRS Website:
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) sometimes called the Earned Income Credit (EIC), is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. Congress originally approved the tax credit legislation in 1975 in part to offset the burden of social security taxes and to provide an incentive to work. When the EITC exceeds the amount of taxes owed, it results in a tax refund to those who claim and qualify for the credit.

And since your brought it up.... where was Obama in 1975? With whom was he palling around? Do you have any records for his activities for 1975?

The more people learn about Obama, the more questions they have.

If she really is in such dire straits, why didn't the whole family go visit her?
Obama's only living relative in the US, and Obama's going to visit her already, so why not take Michelle and the kids?

btw, Michelle was out campaigning for him while he was gone. Did the media cover that? Where was she and what did she say?

And other than Letterman and Oprah, where's the
account of her speeches? She's been known to drop some Biden-esque comments, so why the secrecy?

What matters is, Obama's campaign and the candidate do not consider this election over.

They have not come close in two years to making so big a blunder. They won't make that mistake in the final week.

No matter how hard Matt Drudge wishes.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH T O P I X*** Are you on the GOP payroll AGAIN? You naughty site.

TOPIX
TOPIX
TOPIX.

This must be the "GOP SMEAR CAMPAIGN TACTIC OF THE DAY" in which you post DAUNTING PICTURES of OBAMA to the right of the screen and warm and fuzzy picture of McCain/Palin at the top of the screen.

What's the new hot topic?
OBAMA alredy measuring the drapes thread?

Really TOPIX? Not even going to try to hide your transparency?

TOPIX attempts to sway voters to the right sure goes hand in hand with Palins "Obama Corenation" speech. "He's acting like the President and You fine Americans haven't even voted." I guess she thinks this latest LAME attempt to woo voters will work because she just ASSumes they are as dumb as she.

God, does that women do ANYTHING besides WHINE and complain and criticize and folk up everything she touches?

1) When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi.


2) Obama raised $1 million in funds for Odinga’s campaign
http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php...

3) Raila identified Barack Obama as his cousin.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7176683.stm

4) Before the Election, Odinga made a deal with Kenyan Muslim Leaders.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
http://raila2007.org/1109.html

5) Muslim Leaders in Kenya deny that this deal had anything to do with implementing Sharia Law.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7115387.stm

6) When Raila lost the election, the ODM incited violence and hatred towards the Kikuyu minority.
http://www.worldpicturenews.com/web/IndexPage...

7) After the Elections, supporters of Raila Odinga chased Kikuyu men, women and children into a Church in Eldoret - and burned them alive.

http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599...

8) When asked about the massacre, Odinga did not denounce the actions carried out in his name - he could only say that "they did not know that in the church were children which were being kept there as refugees so in the process of cause they set the church on fire"

http://kenyangenocide.blogspot.com/2008/01/ra...

9) Human Rights Watch reports that there is evidence that Raila and his officials were behind the ethnic Genocide. The BBC Reports: "Officials from Kenya's opposition party were behind attacks on members of the president's ethnic group and are planning more, Human Rights watch says..."

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7206658.stm

10) Obama helped Odinga with the skills of " community organizer". Obama knew all the time and gave all the support to Odinga. PROOF:

A 7-year-old radio interview in which Barack Obama discussed the failure of the Supreme Court to rule on redistributing wealth in its civil rights rulings has given fresh ammunition to critics who say the Democratic presidential candidate has a socialist agenda.

The interview -- conducted by Chicago Public Radio in 2001, while Obama was an Illinois state senator and a law professor at the University of Chicago -- delves into whether the civil rights movement should have gone further than it did, so that when "dispossessed peoples" appealed to the high court on the right to sit at the lunch counter, they should have also appealed for the right to have someone else pay for the meal.

"Reagan was the right conservative for the 1980's. His policies were right for 1980, but not for 2008. Conservative principles did not serve us well the last 8 years as we see the economy tanking. The spend, spend, spend, thinking of the Republicans has led us to economic ruin and the same policy of trickle down will not work with 10 Trillion in debt that needs to be repaid to banks and foreign lands. Putting the money into a war and wasting billions in taxes that does not come back to the American worker is failure. Regan would never have done that but now BUSH has done so much damage it will take an all out support of the American public rich and poor to get us out of this Republican made mess."

In 1975 like most 47 year old Americans Obama was in school getting an education, something you must have missed out on. Socialism as a nasty word was created by McCain and his Plumber Campaign of Nasty. Take a word and throw it on the wall to see if it can replace terrorist. A campaign of trying any word to see if it sounds nasty and will stick to Obama. Socialism is here, has been here since the 1930's but uninformed people seem to think Muslim, Black, Terror, Socialism, Ayres, are words that should scare but we find words like bailing out rich banks, 10 Trillion in Debt, Billions to Iraq, unemployment, foreclosure, stock market crash, and Palin from Alaska more scarey then anything made up to throw around at nasty campaign rallies.

His first contact to marxism was with

Obama and FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS

Every election the same silly stuff comes up again and again ad infinitum.

1. Some cry it is the end of the world because either candidate will enslave Americans.

2. Some tell bigger and bigger lies thinking if little lies didn't work, bigger will.

3. Some whine and throw tantrums about how the election is rigged and blame the media.

Oh, c'mon, what the hell are they reading? Every single thing I've read on it always prefaces it with "if the election were held TODAY"... which it isn't. Not one person has said, it's a done deal, it's over.

I love how they make up stories and then claim their true because it's been printed. Yes, it has.... BY YOU!!!
