CINCINNATI -- In a possible foreshadowing of a potentially bruising general election campaign, a speaker who introduced presidential candidate John McCain at a rally here today accused Barack Obama of sympathizing with "world leaders who want to kill us" and invoked Obama's middle name -- three times calling him "Barack Hussein Obama."
Local conservative radio talk show host Bill Cunningham described Obama as "a hack Chicago Daley-style politician who is picturing himself as change. When he gets done with you -- all you're going to have in your pocket is change," he said.
McCain quickly distanced himself from the remarks, which he did not hear, saying that using Obama's middle name in repetition like that was inappropriate. "I absolutely repudiate such comments and again, I will take responsibility," he said, calling the use of Obama's middle name inappropriate. "It will never happen again. It will never happen again."
Cunningham, warming up a crowd of about 400 people in the ornate green and gold Hamilton County Memorial Hall before McCain's arrival, accused the "stooges from the New York Times" and "sycophants in the media" of conspiring to elect Obama.

And his money used to buy his House has Middle East Connections....
Shi*. Its his NAME. Its not like the guy used a four letter word to refer to him. NAME.
This is mind boggling.
About time ho-hum McCain had a little spice in his ho-hum campaign. That said, I’ll vote for him.
McCain. Not to be trusted.
"I absolutely repudiate such comments and again, I will take responsibility," [McCain] said, calling the use of Obama's middle name inappropriate. "It will never happen again. It will never happen again."

Erm, that would be McCain.
Someone needs to whisper in McInsane’s ear that he needs the conservative vote. He’s not doing well so far. I guess ego-maniacs who are power hungry don’t listen to anyone anyway.
McPain nees to hire Bob Dole to stir up the crowds!
They picked McCain as the weakest in the Republican camp to run against him....

This review is from: Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left (Hardcover)I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.
It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.
Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.
This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air.
You said it well.
So Buraq (Mohammed’s horse) was against invading Iraq for the same reasons as the French and the Russians. They were paid off.
Before the campaign ends, I can see McPain frequently admonishing his own “excessive” supporters while he gives passes to “My friend Senator Obama”. Jack French Kemp did that with “My friend Al Gore, and I sincerely, sincerely mean that.”
If McCain thinks he’s going to win the election based on who has the more likeable persona, then he should drop out now and release all his delegates.
McCain is still reaching across aisle! What an idiot.
