JOHN MCCAIN CANNOT TIE HIS SHOWS OR EVEN COMB HIS HAIR MUCH LESS USE A KEYBOARD BECAUSE OF THE INJURIES HE SUSTAINED AS A POW!!! Seriously, he cannot raise his arms above his shoulders.
This is all pretty well known, which is what makes Obama's latest ad not just offensive, but cruel and heartless. How dare he mock this man who almost died in service to this country for not being able to do "hip" activities like use a keyboard when the man cannot even comb his hair!!! What the hell is the MATTER with Obama??? This is so reminiscent of Saxby Chambliss attacking Max Cleland as being unpatriotic, except that Chambliss was not running to be COMMANDER IN CHIEF!!! If this is how Obama treats this war hero, how can any of our returning wounded veterans expect him to take their issues, their physical limitations, seriously??
There are many who are writing on this issue, and better than I, so I refer you to my favorite haunt, No Quarter, to see some of those pieces. But I saw a piece on this ad today that just stymied me. The title is: "Obama Gets Tough, Shoots Self in Head." True that, but it was THIS sentence from that piece that really hit me:
"I've always thought that Barack Obama is unqualified for the office of President—he isn't qualified to be a Senator, either—but I've never thought he was particularly mean-spirited. Until now."
I'm sorry, WHAT? You never thought Obama was mean-spirited (though I applaud you for recognizing that he is not fit to hold elected office)? I have long thought he was, and he has shown it in any NUMBER of ways. Here are just a few: remember the "Harry and Louise" ads in which he completely misrepresented Hillary Clinton's Universal Health Care message, as well as NAFTA, and how he dismissed her when she spoke out about the ads? Here's a refresher:
ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: After two of Sen. Barack Obama's mailers, one on NAFTA and the other on health care, prompted Sen. Hillary Clinton to say, "Shame on you, Barack Obama," Obama told reporters Clinton got “exercised this morning,” and that the notion that “somehow we are engaging in nefarious tactics, I think, is hard to swallow.”
Uh, no, no it isn't.
Okay, that was mild, but still, shows his character. How about this one?
Or how about this:
Don't you just LOVE his mealy mouth attempts to claim this didn't happen?? Claire McCaskill's mouth does not look like she is saying a damn thing, Obama. And pictures don't lie.
How about the ever-growing number of people he has thrown under the bus whenever it was politically expedient to do so, INCLUDING HIS OWN GRANDMOTHER? That doesn't strike anyone as being mean-spirited?
Hell, I could go on and on and on, sadly. I just cannot believe that people are just NOW seeing how mean-spirited he IS. He has demonstrated it time and time again, but I guess since his minions were laughing, others thought maybe it was suppsoed to be funny.
Yeah, well, that freakin' offensive as all-get-out ad was SUPPOSED to be funny - if he wasn't making fun of someone for activities lost to him because of TORTURE!!!
Again, here is the one the DNC shoved down our throat. This mean-spirited, egotistical, arrogant, narcissistic, unqualified, inexperienced blowhard. Well done, DNC. You really know how to pick 'em.
