McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds fired back that Obamas retort was a hysterical diatribe in response to a speech in which his name wasnt even mentioned.

Oh YEAH?? how DARE he call me “FAT” ?!! I oughta...
Well-played, Senator McCain.
Just convince me that the gobaloney warming nonsense is just campaign bamboozlement of frailminded “moderates”, and I might be willing to get back on board.
Mike Huckabee on Fox & Friends this morning was making the point that the Democrats should have pretended that Bush’s remarks didn’t have anything to do with them. He said that if you throw a rock over the fence, it’s the dog that gets hit that lets out a howl.
McCain’s remark is blatantly racist...(or so we will hear on the evening news).
LOL. Thats a priceless response.
All you Jewish democrats out there ought to be wary of electing a self-professed appeaser to the White House. Never forget what that meant to Jews across Europe when appeasers governed democracies. What will it mean to Jews in Israel today?
There are 50 million people in Iraq and Afghanistan who differ with Obama...they are free to do so nowq because of Bush.
There has not been a major terror attack on our soil since 911, because of Bush and taking the fight to the enemy on their turf.
...and in the process, Iran, who is the chief sponsor of terror, is surrounded by our forces now, who are ready to attack should we need to.
Obama would have the world still living with Saddam Hussein, and an inabaility for us to respond to either him or Iran...and he calls that world safer.
I pray the American people will have the wisdom to see the difference.
“Appeaser?!!! Hey, he’s talking about ME! Hey, ME! OVER HERE, he’s talking about ME!!!”
Very true to life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The rats outsmarted again by the dumbest man to ever be a US president.
This guy as president has the very real possibility to be the worst disaster in the history of this nation.
love the response....me thinks Bush and McCain may have had shared a cigar recently.
The problem is that the average Joe voter cannot define appeasement much less care about who calls who one. This little quip is lost on most voters. Hussein needs to be attacked on his liberal domestic issues and lack of experience and character.
Tucker had best watch it before John tosses him out...
DOWN GOES OBAMA! DOWN GOES OBAMA!
Hey Barrack Hussein Obama: Shakespeare...”Me thinks thoust doth protest too much”! If the shoe fits, and it obviously does, wear it.
I agree , he can do much more harm then then the current holder of the worst president in history , Jimma Carrta and in a lot less time .
This is SOOOOO GOOD for McCain after the global warming disaster.
“hysterical” is sexist ... and as used in in this case accurate and hilarious.
from L. hystericus “of the womb,” from Gk. hysterikos “of the womb, suffering in the womb,” from hystera “womb” (see uterus). Originally defined as a neurotic condition peculiar to women and thought to be caused by a dysfunction of the uterus. Hysterics is 1727; hysteria, abstract noun, formed 1801. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=hysterical
McCain should never have said anything about the global warming disaster. But even if he does travel down that road, his take on global warming is still better than either of his rivals.
Weeell, maybe our Bulldog does have some teeth.
“Mike Huckabee on Fox & Friends this morning was making the point that the Democrats should have pretended that Bushs remarks didnt have anything to do with them.”
Exactly right. It was like Goldwater’s reaction to the daisy ad of 1964. Analysts later said it would have been better for Goldwater not to consider the ad an attack on him but rather to have said something like I join Mr Johnson in working to avoid the possibility of nuclear war.
Democrats: The Party of Sissies.
Palestinians in Gaza Are Phonebanking for Barack Obama
Phil Klein calls our attention to an al-Jazeera news report that sounds like a parody, but is genuine: A report on Palestinians in Gaza who are phonebanking in support of Barack Obamas campaign.
I transcribed the most jaw-dropping parts:
REPORTER: It may be hard to believe, but working in this tiny Internet cafe in Gaza City may just be one of Barack Obamas biggest fans.
Before every U.S. primary, 23-year-old Ibrahim Abu Jayyab gathers 17 of his friends to try and rally support for Obamas campaign in the U.S.
So why does a young Palestinian living in Gaza spend so much of his time and money on an election thousands of miles away?
ABU JAYYAB: [translated] It all started at the time of the U.S. primaries. After studying Obamas electoral campaign manifesto, I thought, this is a man that is capable of change inside America. As for potential change in the Middle East, he can also do that. I think he can bring peace to the area, or at least this is what we hope.
REPORTER: And the game plan? Ibrahim and his friends call random numbers in the U.S. before every primary to deliver one simple message:
ABU JAYYAB: [in English] Elect Senator Obama. I will change. I will achieve... the justice in the Middle East.
The rest of the report is about Bush failing to achieve peace in the Middle East, the U.S. unwillingness to apply pressure on Israel over illegal settlements, a professor who says his students are following the election but
A potttery maker says, unless you support Israel, you wont get in the White House.
The report concludes by showing graffiti in Gaza depicting a monstrous Bush, lips dripping with blood, clutching the world and drinking blood through a straw from a pile of skulls. The caption is, Good bye Mr. Bush, we wont miss you.
The reporters voice over of the graffiti: There does to be one thing people here agree on.

Fantastic edit. I can’t wait to send it to my lib son who voted for the empty suit.
From the article:
“Thats the Bush-McCain record on protecting this country. Those are the failed policies that John McCain wants to double down on, because he still hasnt spelled out one substantial way hed be different from George Bush when it comes to foreign policy.”
REALLY,Barry Hussein? If so, please enlighten us on how many attacks on U.S. soil have happened since 9/11. What an idiot. Unfit to hold ANY office.
The average Joe voter doesn’t know what an appeaser is because our public education system sucks.
This being an erudite crowd, I’m sure you all remember the Monty Python skit “The Funniest Joke in the World” where the comedian wrote a joke so funny it was lethal. The Brits translated it into German and unleashed “joke warfare” on the Germans. The FUNNIEST part of the skit was the quip that the new joke was “20 times deadlier that Britain’s pre-war joke.” Cut to clip of Chamberlain waiving his scrap of paper around. Now, THAT was hilarious! I got it. Today, how many high school seniors would?
This will keep happening again and again throughout the campaign season if Fauxbama does get the D nomination. He’s beyond a beneath bush league shrub who is completely in over his head.
McCain will be making him look like the childish schoolboy he is repeatatively.
I for one can’t wait for the debates, if you thought Cheney b$tchsl@pped Breck Girl, just wait until McCain gets a hold of Fauxbama.
Fauxbama has absolutely ZERO chance of winning a national general election... and if he’s the nominee, I think he’ll be lucky if he even gets 40% of the popular vote.
Appeasement, literally: calming, reconciling, acquiring peace by way of concessions or gifts (the verb ‘to pay’ also goes back to the Latin ‘pax’ = peace). Most commonly, appeasement is used for the policy of accepting the imposed conditions of an aggressor in lieu of armed resistance, usually at the sacrifice of principles. Usually it means giving in to demands of an aggressor in order to avoid war
Appeasment... them’s fightin words
Muslims certainly take offense over the most innocent slight. Thank God Bush didn’t use any cartoons to illustrate his speech.
Not only has Obama revealed himself as an appeaser he has clearly demonstrated his total inability to win an argument with his adversaries in this exercise.
What a LOSER!
Is this Obama-lama-ding-dong’s “Jump The Shark” moment?
Voting Democrat is a profession of faith.
I think Obama made a major league horse's ass of himself on this one.
Keep baiting that Jimmy Carter clone.
I think that the president hit the nail on the head yesterday in Jerusalem. And today, the nails started to complain, said former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton.
Infidel. It’s a great cell phone ring tone. I have it on my phone and I still laugh at it when it rings.
Some sources might spell it Infedel.
He has said all along that he would let hitlery and obamama fight each other and keep out of their way - and then engage the one left standing =
I think that's a good strategy...
