McCain Grilled On

McCain Grilled On "The View": Sarah Palin, His Abortion Stance, His Obama Attack Ads, And More

Commented Sep 14, 2008 at 01:08:26 in Politics

“Let's make a deal -- if Democrats will refrain from demeaning Jesus by calling him a community organizer, then we Independents will refrain from pointing out that their candidate is comparable to being the disciple who took 30 silver pieces to point out the community organizer to the Temple Guards. Okay? Biblical parallellisms only go so far before they become mean, insulting, and small-minded.”

“How does Obama remind you of Judas? Give specifics. What's that? You can't? You just thought you'd lob some meaningless insult that doesn't actually make any sense at all? The only thing "independent" about that was the fact that your analogy was independent from reality.

Let's see: A community organizer-turned legislator for the people versus an ex-prisoner turned-corporate sponsored status quo puppet. Yeah, I know who looks like Judas it isn't Obama.”

I am not a Christian and I know the Bible frowns on not telling the truth, then JUSTIFYING it.

And Community Organizers, what do they do? Feed the hungry? Clothe the naked? Help the sick?
In the communities around South Chicago, those are among the things they do.

Is your Jesus against that?”

“Hmmmm. It seems like Sen. Obama is counting on getting out the max vote possible among the youth of America. Gee, too bad that his party was so busy promoting abortion under the euphemism of "choice" for the last 30 years. He'd be a lot farther ahead in the polls if all those aborted children had grown up to vote as Democrats! They never had a chance and he has a slim chance of being elected President, either. Ironic how our choices come back to haunt us...”

“Democrats do not promote abortion! I have been following the American presidential election and been struck by how most Americans don't exercise reason or logic. Such an important decision awaits your country and you come up with the asinine conclusion that Obama would be a lot farther ahead in the polls if babies had not been aborted. Your country is at a very important juncture: you either take the path that will allow you to continue as leader of the first world or you can opt for McCain, a man who met his vp candidate once before offering her the job. Has the USA morphed into some third world banana republic? Based on what's been happening so far in this election, the answer is a resounding `yes'!”

“Then, based on that line of thinking, you should be happy for all of the aborted potential dem voters, its let GOP rule hold sway, and look what THAT'S brought us.

So, it seems to me you guys would be all for aborting, it seems to be working in your favor...

“Is there a logical reason why we can't first focus on caring for all of the starving, ill, uneducated children that are currently living and breathing rather than making the unborn the focal point? I can understand that you have a strong opinion on the matter of abortion but, why does it trump all else? There are many evils plaguing our country and our world, war, poverty, disease etc. Why not work toward saving and bettering those lives before taking this on?”

“Abortion goes by another euphemism too, it's called THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY. It seems to me that the only time some people care about politics at all is when it's about a WEDGE ISSUE. What about human rights? What about civil liberties? If you're so willing to argue these rights for the unborn and don't understand the importance of these rights to the fully born and fully formed, then your argument is disingenuous. Keep your hand and legislation off the pleasure sensors, neuro responders and reproductive organs of others. Try free exchange and reasonable access to information about reproductive services and education, unwanted pregnancies and abortions will decrease. I myself am uncomfortable with telling someone what they should and should not do with their reproductive organs and what kind of life should be sustained by them.”

“Did you see how much M-c-c-ane has been lying?

Pathetic. People used to like him.”

“Now I know the meaning of the word "SNARKY" after reading the posts on this web page. Gee, why doesn't someone do a mashup of Sen Obama's flipflops and position clarifications? The whole snarky controversy about Anchorman Charlie's snotty "Bush Doctrine" question to Gov. Palin sounds very junior highish. "I know the Washington beltway in-words and phrases and you don't, Miss Congeniality!" This just reminds me of all the people Jay Leno interviews when he does his "Jay Walking" segment. He goes up and asks all these Obama supporters simple questions like, "What's the address for the White House?" and none of them can answer the question correctly. These are the same people who howl in laughter that Gov. Palin can answer Anchorman Charlie's question about the Bush Doctrine. For crying out loud, 90% of the people who support the Community Organizer couldn't answer "What is the Monroe Doctrine?" correctly, much less, "What is the Bush Doctrine?" Let's not mistake journalistic excellence with Beltway snarkiness!”

“If you're looking for some Obama bashing head over to Fox News or listen to McCain & Palin campaign.

There is a huge difference between Palin and an average citizen voting for President. Obviously, anyone running for Pres or V.P. SHOULD know the Bush Doctrine. Whereas a citizen need only know which party aligns with their beliefs.

I'm an Obama supporter and a lawyer. I know the Bush Doctrine. I have more education than Palin. I'm more travelled than Palin. AND - I know I'm not equiped to be Vice President.”

“I sincerely do not think Obama supporters could be as stupid and ignorant of the McCain Palin ones. Just listen to this woman's answers to Gibson's questions, for God's sake. Isn't that prove enough she is not ready for primetime? Gibson is not asking people on the street but a VP candidate who is one old man's herat beat away from the Presidency. BTW, I certainly know what the Bush Doctrine is and I'm not running for anything. Don't you think she should have a minimal idea about the conrnerstone of the Bush administration's misguided foreign policy for the last eight years? This is her president and her party. And she doesn't have a clue? She is not only clueless on this but so many other issues. It is truly a pathetically cynical, political decision. And only the biggest of morons will not see through the Palin surface to see the shallowness and narrowmindedness of this woman.”

“She's running for Vice President. It would be nice if she knew something about the most significant change is US foreign policy in 50 years.”
