to call for Barney Franks resignation?
McCain needs to explain to the American public, very simply, how much Franks protected Fannie and Freddie. Then he needs to explain that many people in his own party didn't like him saying that how would fire Chris Cox. Finally, he needs to ask Obama point blank -- will you call for Franks resignation?
I'm sure Obama will skirt the question. He skirts almost every question by answering them yes AND no. So then McCain needs to ask him how he will CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE (just like that) everything in Washington when he doesn't have the courage to CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE one of the most obvious things that needs CHANGING just because it involves someone in his own party?
But he shouldn't let up there. After Obama tries to weasel out of it, and you ALL know he will, McCain needs to press him some more. He needs to ask him, in Barney Franks position, does Obama think it was appropriate for him to have a relationship with a Fannie Mae executive? (It would make for great TV, but he'll have to skip the part about it being a relationship of crisco-spreading, rump-pumping, sausage-smoking, fudge-packing, good times LOL)
Then he needs to address Obama directly again and say, watch this: then he can talk directly to the people in the audience and say: I PROMISE to the American people that I will NOT retreat from Iraq and that I will bring our troops home on our conditions on our timeline -- with pride. See, THAT is how you make a promise to the American people!
Now, will you make a promise to the American people to call for the resignation of Barney Franks?
And watch the Obama worm-squriming fun begin!
There's another thing John McCain always says.... He always pauses for a second for effect then says: "I'm going to tell you something. I may have said some things here today that maybe you don't agree with, and I might have said some things you hopefully do agree with. But I will always. Tell you. The truth." This is McCain's closer, his last big reverb on the six-string, as it were. And the frenzied standing-O it always gets from his audience is something to see. But you have to wonder. Why do these crowds from Detroit to Charleston cheer so wildly at a simple promise not to lie?
Well, it's obvious why. When McCain says it, the people are cheering not for him so much as for how good it feels to believe him. They're cheering for the loosening of a weird sort of knot in the electoral tummy.... Because we've been lied to and lied to, and it hurts to be lied to. It's ultimately just about that complicated: it hurts. We learn that at age four.... that it diminishes you, denies your respect for yourself, for the liar, for the world. Especially if the lies are chronic, systemic, if experience seems to teach that everything you're supposed to believe in's really just a game based on lies.
Yes, he's half black, but if you ask him, he will conveniently forget to mention that he's half white
He could be purple - Who cares? Jeez move on - It's not Obama that sounds like a racist.
I guess since Palin is so anti woman rights she's desirable too.
Unfortunately, the blind democrats don't care about oblama's terrorist associations.
Unfortunately, the blind reublicanns are stupid enough to listen to this crap!
FEAR FEAR FEAR - That's the only message you have
Get a grip Conflux - I know you're whacked if you seriously want 4 more years of this crap!
You really think Palin is smarter than Barney Frank? - You need to be off shooting wolves from helicopters or something.
You were however right about POT - Much to my DISTRESS!
And you will get what you deserve"
yeah, I know George Bush will be a hard act to follow, with all of his glorious accomplishments...
Maybe Obama will be able to start 3 NEW WARS, and Borrow 10 trillion more $$$$ and add it to National debt.... and maybe have a televised event where he BURNS THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION..and then PISSES on the flames..
Then he will have OUTDONE George Bush.....
maybe you should be concerned about what you candidate and party have to offer - instead of always looking over the fence - take a look on you own side and you might notice the pile of crap you are standing in.
You might want to do the same. Do you have the fortitude to do it or do you NEED to believe that Obama is perfect?
I challenge any of the incessant Obama supporters here to tell me ONE THING they DON'T like about Obama. And I mean one real issue and not the typical Biden "answer" like "he once said something nice about George Bush".
