Obama camp connects the dots for Jews: McCain...Palin...Buchanan..."Nazis"

Barack Obama's campaign, perhaps miffed at all the Democrat-is-weak-on-Israel theme, started striking back at John McCain almost as soon as he tapped Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate. Where the Dems are trying to paint McCain as more financially out of touch with people, they're strongly suggesting that his Christian conservative running mate is no friend to the Jews.

"Palin was a supporter of [MSNBC analyst] Pat Buchanan, a right-winger or as many Jews call him: a Nazi sympathizer,'' Obama spokesman Mark Bubriski wrote in an email.

The campaign also alerted reporters to the fact that Palin supporters, when she ran for mayor of the little Alaska city of Wasilla, was hailed by a supporter as "the first Christian mayor," something that irked predecessor John Stein because he, too, is Christian.

Now comes this piece in Talking Points Memo connecting the Palin-Buchanan dots. It says Obama's pick of Joe Biden to be his vp "pretty much eliminated Obama's 'Jewish problem.'" Does that mean Obama had a problem in the first place?

And what should we make of the chumminess of Buchanan and liberal icons/mouthpieces Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann? Nazis all.

McCain-Palin spokes Michael Goldfarb responded in a statement: "Governor Palin has never worked for any effort to elect Pat Buchanan -- that assertion is completely false. As Mayor of Wasilla, Sarah Palin did attend an event with Mr. Buchanan in her home town where reports described her wearing a Buchanan for President button. She wore the button as a courtesy to Mr. Buchanan and in an effort to make him feel welcome during his visit, but immediately sent a letter to the editor of her local paper clarifying that the button should not have been interpreted as an endorsement of any kind."

Sarah Palins church invites the JEWs for JESUS, to speak to their parishoners....

Typical republican mindset, that all you lemmings can do no wrong. What are you going to do when your party finally takes your last shreds of freedom from you? Its gonna be hard to blame the democrats when they're not in power.

Jay Severin Has A Small Pen1s

Actually...the originator of the 'Palin was a Buchanon supporter' came from Pat Buchanon himself. He said it on MSNBC after she was selected by McCain. If you have anyone to blame, it would be dear old Pat. Take it up with him.

Palin (along with her husband), says former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, was a "brigader for me in 1996."

He was responding to a question on "Hardball" from Chris Matthews about whether she was a member of Buchanan's brigade "wielding the pitchforks," a reference to his conservative populist campaigns of the 1990s.

"They were at a fundraiser for me," Buchanan said of Palin and her husband. He called her a "terrific gal" and a "rebel reformer."

Reading some of your comments are more scary than Nazism itself... the venom just spews out of your mouths so freely and easily its really sad...

I suggest all of you who are "FEAR MONGERS" or "AGENTS OF HATE" get yourself some professional help before it is too late for you. I am no professional but I suspect some of you need a hug.

OBAMA = BETRAYAL
Obama supporters are foolish to think that he will never betray them.
Obama was a close friend of Pastor Wright for TWENTY YEARS.
Obama threw Wright under the bus for personal ambition.
McCain would not betray his country even after 5 years of torture.
You can put lipstick on a traitor, but he's still a traitor.

America is doomed. We have become a nation of hate and greed.Propaganda runs our television and radio shows disguised as "news".
A "journalist" who praises the holocaust and is friends with Sean Hannity(Andy Martin) is the "source" of the Obama/Ayres accusations.
Shame on us for allowing our nation to sink this low!

Very true. At this point it does indeed feel though America is doomed :/.

Folks are really reaching. Although I don't care for Obama, I find these comments absurd. Let's stick to the real issues and the real facts, and let the election sort itself.

Howard

Obama has been relentless in seducing America's youth, and controlling the media. What's next? ... teaching our children to turn their parents in to the Gestapo? These tactics have been used before ... and, they're right out of the Nazi and Islamic/madrassa play books. Wake up America ... the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

Mark Jones

I agree. You are totally on. Today is our last chance to spread the information to our less informed friends --especially youth. Don't give up. Why not organize info parties? Everyone will be camped in long voting lines. All you need to do is be organized. Carry a laptop. Share some choice links with the surrounding people. Show these nice strangers all that the media has been hiding. Explain what totalitarianism will look like in America.

Show people that Obama will set back even blacks hundreds of years --productive, successful blacks will lose everything and everyone will live like a Cuban --desperate, half-starved, lacking basic incentive, barely alive.

Come on, America. Today is our big day. We can get rid of this thug by voting for the better choice!

a few distasteful ntihgs, which laymen right-wing media folk (armed with their Associates degree) isolated on You-tube and Fox news to create a talking point. Rev. Wright is not a Minister Faarakan or Khalid Mohammad. He is a standard black preacher, who grew up, being told to sit on the back of the bus. I can understand some animosity. You can't empathize, I doubt you are black. Wrights statements sounded more Anti-American government than Anti-white anyway. Standard angry older black folk talk. The whole thing with the government creating HIV, people on the far right have stated as well. This is based on the FACT that the government experimented with Syphilis on minorities in the 60's. this is documented. If you put yourself in an older black man's shoes, you might understand where Rev. Wright was coming from. This does not mean Obama is Anti-white, racist, Anti-Jewish or anything else. Obama agree with Wright spiritually, I do not think it's appropriate for religious figures to get political. That is my problem with Wright. Pf1This election is simple. Americans understand Republicans are the party of the rich. It took 30 years for everyone to wake up and grasp it. Your party is going to have to change their ways. Race-baiting and scaring Jewish voters is not going to work this timefair, balanced and factual. My motto

Lets see, Sarah Palin was willing to tblswlehiow on her GOP State Party Chair for doing campaign work on the taxpayers dime and when Gov. Murkowski ignored it and pushed it under the rug, she took out the incumbent Governor in the primary. She fought corruption in her own state and in her own party and stood up to people more powerful than her in the best interests of Alaskans.Barack Obama has done nothing to stand up to corrupt powers in Illinois. Obama has failed to even speak out against the corruption. If Barack Obama is too much of a chicken with a weak will to stand up to the likes of Rod Blagojevich, George Ryan, Todd Stroger, Mayor Daley, Michael Madigan, Emil Jones Jr., Bill Lipinski, William Beavers, Tony Rezko, Joseph Cari Jr, Stuart Levine, etc. then Barack Obama can not be counted on the stand up to the likes of Iran, China, Venezuela, Cuba, etc. Barack Obama will look the other way while powerful people get away with looting us blind because it is not in the best interests of his political career. Sarah Palin stands up to people more powerful than her. Look at the experience and judgment they have actually shown while serving the public and its not even close. Barack Obama fails to look after our best interests. Sarah Palin does not.

Sarah

Cause anything goes for McCaint He is secrad he Caint win. He saw the Democratic campaign and went into a state of panic!He will use ANYTHING or ANYBODY to win.He felt 18,000,000 votes were his for the taking. All he needed was a bait.So he called Palin, because he thinks Hillary's supporters are so shallow and stupid that they would go to the McCain camp, led like dummies without careful consideration. It is highly insulting to All women.If he would panic just because of the democratic campaign, imagine how he would panic if he got the 3 am call and push the wrong button.

.I'm stuck wondering what it is, other than spnnesdiug the Constitution, that would cause all the Senate and Congress to have to be recalled.If it's the money then it's bigger than we know and closer to collapsing than is being said. If it's another piece of the pie that requires them all, what could it be?McCain looked scared when making the statement that he would suspend his campaign and Obama flip-flopped a little too fast and his tone changed. Bush looks like he hasn't slept in days. Something big is coming down the pipe and it ain't water.You almost have to wonder if a foreign country is going to add to the problem or already has.C-

Sarah Palin was willing to take the feedral taxpayer's money, taxmemore, until the heat got too hot by the other 49 states' taxpayers. Then she decided to try and get the money for the Bridge to Nowhere from the state taxpayers of Alaska. That didn't work either. That is when she decided to be against the Bridge to Nowhere. Do some research. It's all over the web. Please do not defend a woman you know nothing about. Once you know the facts of her, we may pay more attention. How does a woman that small conceal a preganancy until she is 7 month's pregnant? Oh, and then just a few short weeks after her public revelation', the baby is born premature, all the while her 16 yo daughter is stashed away with mono'. She ran for governor on a clean up' platform only after she lost her bid for Lt. Governor. The only way she could stay in office as Gov. was to try and clean up the corrupt GOP in Alaska. Now, she has used her power to fire people. She is under investigation by the Alaska legislature. Ooops guess you pro-McCain/Obamabashers don't want anyone bringing these things up. I use to wear blinders too, when I was a Republican.

Eh, normally I'd agree, but it doen't make alot of sense to eccnal Letterman and sit in with Katie Couric .Letterman's show is taped just around the corner at 5:30, which is basically the same time he was taping the interview with Katie Couric.I don't see any reason why he wouldn't have sent Palin in his place could have silenced alot of naysayers.If it makes you feel any better, I think Keith Olberman is no better than Bill O'Riley.

Anto

C.J. That's a strict, aaucrcte interpretation (I use interpretation loosely it's rather cut and dry). But the problem is not with her eligibilty. She's just not ready.I was aware of the rape situation in Alaska. In a study of each state and its crime rating by category, I believe Alaska came in first for rape. The dynamics weren't restricted to race (didn't have it in mind at the time, actually), but if you know anything about chaos theory, change any of those percentages or populations even slightly (within a measurable effect) and you end up with an entirely different set of circumstances. Surely you would agree there's a bit more to the 5th most populous state (IL) and the 47th (Alaska).11Bravo Who cares what others thing about Obama/Biden? They're not going to vote that way anyway.Seriously, it's important to look at these people and evaluate them. If she can't take a few obvious criticisms, she has no business in politics, let along the White House or Senate.Conrad Most reasonable voters don't base their decisions on bets.

Casandra

Lord, I ask that You'd pour out Your Spirit on Sarah. That she'd be a voice for the voiceless and stand irfmly for the issues that are on Your heart! God, I ask that You would open doors that no man can shut and close doors that no man can open in regards to her political pursuits. Lead her and use her according to Your perfect will.
