McCain/Palin are trying to distort what Obama said in an interview seven years ago. They are spreading the lie that Obama specifically said he regretted that the Supreme Court did not pursue wealth distribution.
And (in reference to my blog post OBAMA: SPREADING HIS REAL ECONOMIC PLANS AROUND) do Republicans really want to present themselves as being AGAINST TAX CUTS BEING SPREAD AROUND AMONG AVERAGE AMERICANS, AGAINST BUSINESS INCENTIVES AND RELIEFS FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, etc.?
"...Obama's campaign stepped up their pushback to Fox News: in response to McCain's latest lie about "spreading the wealth," spokesman Bill Burton called out the biased messenger right along with the dishonest message:
The Brennan Center for Justice Report at NYU (10/16/08):"...Ten states received the worst rankings ("needs improvement" or "inadequate") in three of four categories: Colorado, Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, SOUTH CAROLINA, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia...
...nine states (Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, New Jersey, SOUTH CAROLINA, Texas, Utah and Virginia) have requirements that FALL FAR SHORT of our recommended best practices, and are therefore rated "needs improvement."
Check out the links below to learn 1) What is TRUTH and what is MYTH concerning your South Carolina vote, and 2) How to vote using the touch screens. There is a whole lot of misinformation going around deliberately designed to mislead, deceive and confuse voters.
Remember: EVERY SINGLE VOTE MATTERS - EVERY SINGLE VOTE COUNTS
"...It is Sen. Obama who truly promises fundamental change in Washington. You need look no further than the guilt-by-association lies and sound-bite distortions of the degenerating McCain campaign to see how readily he embraces the divisive, fear-mongering tactics of Karl Rove. And while Sen. McCain points to the fragile success of the troop surge in stabilizing conditions in Iraq, it is also plain that he was fundamentally wrong about the more crucial early decisions.
As I am prone to say after an episode of "24" or "Lost," this sets up the rest of the season nicely.
The results Friday (and Saturday, hence my "punting" a day late this weekend) set the stage for a number of Halloween night showdowns that will hold significant playoff implications for local teams. Most notably, region titles will be decided at Beaufort High School and Hilton Head Christian Academy, where the Eagles and the other Eagles play host to Summerville and Northwood Academy, respectively.
Well, my gosh-darn goodness, who knew it cost so much to put lipstick on a pitbull! Or that mavericks like to shop at Bloomie's? Or that makeup artists can make $22,000 for just two weeks' of stylist work?? Seriously, pass me some rouge and eyeliner already.
In an act of what can only be described as major fashion suicide, the GOP went and spent $150,000 (a little less than Joe Six-Pack's beer money) on clothing, makeup and hairstyle consultations for Sarah Palin and her family. But don't worry. They plan to donate the clothes to charity after the election, so it's OK. And truly, I can't think of a better way to say, "I love you, real Americans, and p.s. this isn't an FEC violation" than to offer the foreclosed-on working poor a chance to dress in a variety of size 2 boucle wool suits, accessorized with nifty elephant pins and earrings in the shape of Alaska. It's like an "I'm right there with you" wink - if an "I'm right there with you" wink were the prelude to a world-destructing evil spell by this year's Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.]
Readers, bloggers - In this climate of uncertainty, I want you to know that I stand for change.
Change from boring brides stressing about their over-the-top affairs. Change from old-fashioned ceremonies and women who take themselves too seriously. ... Change you can believe in from a wedding blog.
John McCain, who has harshly criticized the idea of sitting down with dictators without pre-conditions, appears to have done just that. In 1985, McCain traveled to Chile for a friendly meeting with Chile's military ruler, General Augusto Pinochet, one of the world's most notorious violators of human rights credited with killing more than 3,000 civilians and jailing tens of thousands of others.
The private meeting between McCain and dictator Pinochet has gone previously un-reported anywhere.
