Caption McCain & Obama at the Waldorf Astoria

Posted on 10/17/2008 10:09:42 AM PDT by Lucky9teen

US Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain (R) applauds as US Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama (L) speaks at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The pitched battle for the White House briefly made way for good humor and a good cause Thursday as Obama and John McCain traded jibes at a white-tie charity dinner in New York.


United States Presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain reacts after taking a sip of Cuban expresso during a campaign visit in Miami in January 2008. No longer is the struggle against communism in Cuba the main issue in Little Havana as Cuban Americans worry about the US economy slowing down, their retirement funds evaporating, and jobs being harder to come by.

Supporters of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., are dressed as Joe the Plumber as they stand outside the Roanoke Civic Center where a rally for Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., takes place in Roanoke, Va., Friday, Oct. 17, 2008.

Cardinal Egan, silently signaling to McCain:
John, don't shake that man's hand. He
attended an anti-Catholic Marxist Black
Liberation "church" for over twenty years.
Plus he not only supports partial birth abortion,
but also killing babies who somehow managed
to survive standard abortion procedures.

I have been very critical of McCain in all three debates. He blew Obama out of the water last night, he hammered him and was three times as gracious doing it.
Obama’s jokes about the economy were at best in very poor taste. I noticed he did not even touch Acorn, Wright or Ayers; what a chicken shi*. I’ll bet Chavez, Putin et al can’t wait for an Obama administration.

Off topic a little but I took a nap a little while ago and I dreamed about plungers! I dreamed that the toilet was running over and I was running from one bathroom to the next trying to find the plunger. I have got to stop worrying about politics!

Obama was ok...had a few funny lines...whereas John was brilliant! His timing and delivery was impeccable...the crowd thought so, too...the applause was twice as loud for John.

According to Page Six in today's NY Post:

"THOUGH he's battling GOP accusations that he's an Ivy League elitist, Barack Obama has a lifestyle of the rich and famous, like TV show host Robin Leach, who always signed off, "Champagne wishes and caviar dreams!" While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne, a tipster told Page Six."

And last night he stood in white tie dress, at a swanky affair, and had the audacity to speak about all the poor people in NY City.

After seeing her on stage the other night I'm inclined to believe she ate both lobsters & sucked up the jar of caviar herself. Sheesh.

Watch Obama’s body language while McCain is at the podium.
He is EXTREMELY self-conscious. A real poser that one is.

Geez you mean she ordered that dinner for herself while he was at the white-tie affair??? Holy cow I thought that was dinner for two. Who ate dinner with her that she ordered all that stuff and champagne? Maybe she didn’t like being left out of the white tie party. Or am I wrong on the day and date?

Hehe - a bit late for this comment but did anyone notice the old duffer behind McCain when he was giving his speech?

He wasn’t about to let the ceremony rush him through his dinner hahaha.... reminded me of a squirrel nibbling away and wiping his nose with the napkin.

Don’t mind me - I always look at the reactions from others...instead of paying proper attention.
