McCain/Palin Continue To Kick The Hell Out Of Obama
Posted by Casey on August 31, 2008
Now that Obama has been getting his butt kicked the past couple of days … he’s decided to copy everything McCain does and says in order to save face.
This is just too much. You all know how Palin is generating the conservative base that McCain didn’t have before. The libs are scared to death, and it is blatantly clear given their personal attacks on Palin being a mother with special needs child. However, it has just gotten better.
John McCain tore up the script for his Republican National Convention on Sunday, canceling most opening-day activities and positioning himself as above mere politics as Hurricane Gustav churned toward New Orleans.
Ok, that’s good.
"This is a time when we have to do away with our party politics and we have to act as Americans," he said as fellow Republicans converged on their convention city to nominate him for the White House.
Oh, that’s just smooth.
McCain's aides chartered a jet to fly delegates back to their hurricane-threatened states along the Gulf Coast. Campaign manager Rick Davis said the first-night program was being cut from seven hours to two and one half.
McCain said in an interview with NBC that it was possible he would make his acceptance speech not from the convention podium but via satellite from the Gulf Coast region.
And the McCain campaign chartered planes for delegates so they could get home to deal with what Gustav leaves … wow. Plus he’ll likely give his acceptance speech from hurricane central rather than at the convention … again, wow.
So what is Obama doing to help the victims of Gustav?
Democratic rival Barack Obama got a briefing, too, by telephone from Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Obama heard about the status of the storm, the evacuation effort and coordination between federal, state and local authorities, according to Democratic campaign adviser Robert Gibbs.
Oh, not so good. The libs might even say that Obama’s actions are very Bush-esc.
No doubt the left will downplay the McCain move as a political stunt. So what. There are several delegates who get a free ride home as a result of this “political stunt” while Obama was too lazy to even attempt a political stunt of his own. Besides, this is exactly what the left has said they wanted in a leader. Someone who will make an appearance just for the sake of making one. To let victims know they aren’t forgotten … remember? Since the addition of Palin to the ticket … Obama has been virtually non-existent to the world. His team is no doubt trying to figure out how they are going keep this from being a landslide defeat. After all, he couldn’t defeat McCain when the conservative base wasn’t energized and supporting him. Now that they are energized … what to do Obama, what to do?
