Swift-boating John Kerry worked so well in 2004 that the GOP is at it again against Barack Obama.
A new book purports to have the goods on the Chicago politician and here’s an example of the message they sent to my Inbox yesterday bwo of ‘Human Events’…thought you might want to *know the points covered in the book.
To me it sounds like Obama has engaged in…POLITICS! And has perhaps taken a leaf from the GOP playbook (how dare he succeed!)
Here are the goods they have against him so far but I’m sure they’ll dredge up more damning ‘evidence’ if the shine on his halo isn’t sufficiently dimmed by early November to make their vote tampering more believable:
“The corrupt Chicago Machine politician who “made a U.S. senator” out of Barack Obama — and how he did it.
Payback: How Obama intervened to keep the Chicago Machine in power while he was a US senator.
How he won his first election by having his lawyers knock his opponents off the ballot on technicalities.
His vocal support for a grotesque “infanticide bill” that was too extreme even for Nancy Pelosi.
How his wife’s salary tripled the year he became a senator and started earmarking funds to her employer.
How Obama has repeatedly steered legislation to pay off campaign donors.
“I’ve never done any favors for him,” says Obama about convicted developer Tony Rezko. Oh, but he has…
And much more!” #
Yep, sounds like Obama has an understanding of Chicago politics and Washington’s as well.
If they consider these tactics enough to make Obama unfit to be president, wonder how Bush’s Texas tactics fit their high standards for the Oval Office? Sounds to me like they want to diss Obama for knowing the game and how to play it.
Too bad so sad.
And one guesses the GOP might not have to slime their opponent if their guy had enough positive traits to emphasize! They’d do it anyway for fun and good measure, but might not have to.
Why, John McCain has y e a r s’ worth of actions and tactics to scrutinize and in my smidge of research, McSame usually comes out smelling – just not like a rose.
One thing about it- voting for John McCain is like inviting George Bush to stick around the White House for four more (interminable) years and what sane American would willingly do that?
* part of my attempt to keep up with the Rs is to read certain newsletters – and sometimes I even resort to listening to Rush. These things I do in hopes of a neocon-free America!
