Comments on: McCain crew finds Obama’s big flaw: He’s way too popular http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/07/30/mccain-crew-finds-obamas-big-flaw-hes-way-too-popular/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Beenatthiswaytoolong http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/07/30/mccain-crew-finds-obamas-big-flaw-hes-way-too-popular/comment-page-1/#comment-367582 Fri, 01 Aug 2008 02:31:02 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2008/07/30/mccain-crew-finds-obamas-big-flaw-hes-way-too-popular/#comment-367582 I am sorry folks I believe this ad is great. Obama is appealing to that Britney Spears, Paris Hilton electorate and if your insulted that the Republicans are pointing it out I’m sorry. I feel it is probably the best and most accurate depiction of what and how Obama is handling this election I have seen to date. My hats off to the producer. They deserve a raise. He is in front of the media every opportunity he can get. He loves playing the Rock star. This ad pegged Obama to a tee and the Democrats are TICKED OFF about it! I love it!

By the way I don’t care what the rest of the world thinks of me. I am an American, not an European and I certainly don’t want MY President making decisions about AMERICA to win a popularity contest overseas.

I simply asked for help in validating or invalidating the email. And I got it. That, my squirrely friends, is the extent of my ‘research’ into it. As for despising Obama, that is my privelege, my right, just as it is your’s to kiss his ass. As an added note, I don’t really care for McCain, either. In all my years (quite a few), I’ve not had the utter sense of disdain for a presidential candidate as I have discovered with Obama. McCain, on the other hand, would not be my first choice, either. If truth be known, I am apolitical – I simply don’t care for Democrats or Republicans, only about the promises kept.

Dear John, I always did love that photo of you in your Navy pilot uniform suit holding your helmut. I remember that Navy pilots were quite admired during the years of the Vietnam war, especially by the gals. My niece snagged herself a Navy pilot who flew missions over Vietnam, and really cried when her Navy pilot didn’t hang around to get married to her. You made quite a career for yourself in the Senate as the Senator from Arizona. You certainly are still going strong. Well, anyway, please don’t let Barack Obama get underneath your skin. Everybody has their right to run for President of the United States and certainly so do you. You being a warrior figure and a Republican politician know, I guess, that in a fight, you have to go for the jugular.

On the issues, Obama wins hands down. We have a real chance to turn this country around now. Do everything in your power to get more voters registered and get them to the polls to elect Obama as our next President. If we don’t change course now, America will collapse in financial ruin.

Now imagine this person could be one of the greatest presidents of all time. A leader, somebody who will go down in history books as a legend. What kind of reception do you think the world will give him? What do you think the opposition in his way will say to try and win? I think we are witnessing history in the making.

It happened both times with Bush…maybe McCain should choose GW as his VP running mate, then appoint Cheney as his Sec. of Def., David Addington as his Sec. of State, Wolfowitz as NSA and John Yoo to the Supreme Court.

Obama ’08

Even John Kerry was performing better in polls 4 years ago. Americans are far smarter than what people think, people realize that this guy is an empty suit, a teleprompter reader, that this guy is nothing without his well rehearsed speeches. Is just matter of time for Barack to implode.
