Sen.Obama spent 4 million dollars to run one of the most
expensive political ads in tv history. Yes, he ran a one-half
hour prime time infomercial on networks across the country
on 10/29 including NBC, CBS, Fox, MSNBC, BET, Univision
and TVOne. This is not counting the millions he has spend on his campaign. I wonder why Obama and his crew didn't use that money as an example of "spreading the wealth" and donate it to the failing economy?
"Republicans John McCain and Sarah Palin summon antidemocratic images of a communist state to attack Democrat Barack Obama's tax plan and his comment about spreading the wealth around. But in her home state, Palin embraces Alaska's own version of doing just that."
"Much as Obama explains his tax hike on the rich as a way to help people who are struggling, Palin's statement talked about the energy costs burdening Alaskans:
Voters in some states are getting strange, misleading phone calls about early voting. Some of these calls are computerized and claim to be from Michelle Obama, and deceptively trick voters into thinking they can "vote by phone." Other calls are live and target Spanish speaking households

No one needs a 2,000-pound pumpkin. No one. Such massive pumpkins are absurd and unnatural and freaky-looking, and good news only if you're part of the powerful international lobby Big Pie.
"In this disturbing video, the potential problems voting machines could cause on Election Day is seen in stark light."
"While the Republicans had the distracted media searching for links between Obama and ACORN, RNC operatives were busily completing one of the most massive voter suppression and purging efforts in American history, stealing hundreds of thousands of Democratic votes across the embattled swing states and striving to arrange chaos and endless lines at the voting booths next week...
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."
