On election eve, another anti-Obama call -- from Hillary

Our friends at the McClatchy Washington bureau report that the Republican Party on Sunday launched robocalls to millions of voters in battleground states -- including Florida -- playing audio of Hillary Clinton in the primary election portraying her then-opponent Barack Obama as too inexperienced to run against John McCain.

The robocall by the Republican National Committee, approved by the McCain campaign, plays audio of Clinton minimizing Obama's experience and the significance of a 2002 speech he gave opposing the invasion of Iraq. Since the summer, however, she has campaigned on behalf of Obama across the country.

"In the White House, there is no time for speeches and on-the-job training,'' Clinton said then. ``Sen. McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, and Sen. Obama will bring a speech that he gave in 2002.''

Clinton spokeswoman Kathleen Strand issued a statement in response to the robocall:``Senator Hillary Clinton does not approve this message, and as she crisscrosses the country, she has said time and again that the choice in this election could not be more clear. The McCain/Palin ticket offers only more of the same failed policies while the Obama/Biden ticket offers the vision, leadership and positive solutions we need. I wonder why the Republicans aren't using those words?''

That 5 million dollars for Barrack Obama’s 30 minute commercial is corrupt money from companies on wall street that have purposely ruined American citizens lives by creating financial turmoil. This is all by design to sway votes toward Obama. Wake up people, the wall street meltdown just so happened right before this election? Regardless our votes don’t count. The U.S. election is as corrupt as many third world countries.

Listen up people! in Clinton's Minneapolis speech, he said America is in the ditch and Barrack is here to pull us out of the ditch because were in the ditch as a result of being in the ditch.
If Clinton said it, it must be true.

captain cucamonga

And Barrack went down to the depths of the ditch to set the captives free, that him and Wall Street threw there to begin with. Cucamonga chapter 1:666


captain cucamonga:

You, sir, are an idiot. Firstly, the senator's name is Barack. Second, how could any rational American lump Barack Obama in with the greedy Wall Street CEO's that irresponsibly led us into the proverbial "ditch"? Obama believes in MORE regulation and he believes in MORE equality. The pigs that brought us this far, people that John McCain might say are "American heroes", only believe in themselves. They worship the market yet, at the same time rig the system to their advantage. To imply that Sen. Obama, our next president, was complicit with the Wall Street establishment in provoking the financial crisis is like saying that John McCain is a leading supporter of NAMBLA.

my fellow americans from florida, you folks tilted the election the last two times (well maybe one...) in favor of bush, and we all know how that went, right? how about we try something truly different in giving the other side a shot at it? i'm thinking y'all got slapped in the head twice by the bushies (and we did too, up north here) and maybe it's time for some paybacks? remember "mission accomplished" or how about "nope, no WMD's under here (looking under his podium while giving a speech)", or that hooey about Bin Laden's terrorists being in Iraq? remember all that?

we love florida. we really do. there are so many of us whose families have resettled there that we consider you almost part of the north. but we're definitely all part of the same country,one great country. so come on, try something different. show these cynical rovians that you're not forgetting these past 8 years. we need you...

captain cucamonga

Dear Kevin you are right I spelled Barry's name wrong. thanks

captain cucamonga... You are a MORON! Barack Obama has raised so much money because he is "real". He, knows that the middle class has been hurting in this country for a very long time now. A President should put the People of this Great Nation ahead of the Special Interests. When Sen. Obama speaks... he moves people with his words. That is why I myself have given him small donations of between $25.00 and $50.00 several times over. As have most of his donars.

GET A CLUE... THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION HAS RUINED THIS COUNTY. And they have also ruined the Republican Party (in case you haven't noticed.) Wait till Wednesday morning... your wake up call will hit you over the head like a frying pan.

captain cucamonga

Gee it just so happened when McCains ratings were up because of Palin then McCain was in the lead. Boom! the Wall Street meltdown happened, ooh lets be scared and vote for Barrack. PS: I spell his name different on purpose.

captain cucamonga

And Barrack went down to the depths of the ditch to set the captives free, that him and Wall Street threw there to begin with. Cucamonga chapter 1:666

Hahahahahahahaha, Palin is a TOTAL WHACKO! Even the McCain Senior advisors have specifically called her "AN IGNORAMUS" and "A WHACK JOB". Several former Bush and Reagan officials have come out in the last few weeks and said that Palin was the worst choice that McCain could have made.

Sarah Palin, a hearbeat away from the Presidency. NOW THAT IS A SCARY THOUGHT!

Did anyone hear the tape where she got punked by two canadian comidians... who pretended to be the President of France? Too Funny, she sounded like a smitten 15 year old. She was all giggles.

captain cucamonga

You and many other people could be right about Palin but the fact remains the wall street meltdown happened in a timely manner. Let us be scared people, of the Wall Street meltdown and follow aimlessly and vote for the man who will pull us from the ditch.

Obama has more foreign policy experience than Ronald Reagan had, more than George W Bush had and more than Bill Clinton had. His running mate is chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which Obama is a member of. Obama also chairs a sub committee on Afghanastan.

Obama is the only presidential candidate in living memory who got most of his campaign contributions from everyday people, with the average donation at about $86.
That's how democracy is supposed to work.
For once, the big corporate lobbys aren't dictating who wins. Complaints about how much money his campaign raised are just sour grapes.

Reaganomics has been a failure for 80% of Americans who only received 11% of the growth in wealth during the entire 25 years or more of these failed Republican economic policies, which didn't change under Clinton. The top 15 got 33% of the growth.

I also challenge the assertion that Reaganomics spurred a period of huge economic growth. What spurred it was the revolution in technology, computers, internet, telecommunications etc.

Richard Mercer

Error correction:
The top 1% got 33% of the growth is how it should read. The next 4% got over 24% of the growth in wealth.

The Wall Street Meltdown!!!!!!!!!!!! Be scared, Be real scared. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!!!!!!


God help the world if McCain and palin wins. It will be the same unilateral policies which would put America at more risk.Anti American sentiments have never been stronger. The American economy sucks. Can you imagine the countries that have loaned The USA money to cover your deficits suddenly decides it is time to collect? Alot of countries around the world are holding US government Bonds so that you can finance your war in Iraq. Can you imagine what will happen if these people just decides to cash these bonds in? All hell will break lose! America needs to come back into the fold of nations, to work with its allies and to use diplomacy with its enemies. Barack represents that change that is so important unlike the republicans who in our image in asia are just very angry white men and women who are bigots and wackos!
