Obama expects GOP to attack his patriotism
MSNBC.Com ^ | 6/4/2008 | NBC News and MSNBC

Republicans’ only option is to paint Democrat as ‘very risky choice’

NEW YORK - A day after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama said Wednesday that he expected an organized Republican attack on his integrity and patriotism because “it’s very hard for them to talk about where they want to take the country.”

Obama, a first-term senator from Illinois, touched on a variety of issues in a wide-ranging interview with Brian Williams, anchor of “NBC Nightly News.” Among them were what roles his defeated rival for the nomination, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her husband, the former president, might play in his campaign, as well as how soon he expected to debate his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain.

The important thing, Obama said, is to find the best way to build a united Democratic fall campaign to answer what he expects to be a Republican assault on his devotion to America — “the attempt to paint me as a very risky choice.”

No, Barry, we’ve actually got enough real stuff to attack you on without making up stuff that doesn’t exist.

We don’t attack the Easter Bunny. we don’t attack the Loch Ness Monster and we’re not going to attack your patriotism.

And why in the name of God shouldn't they??? I am so sick of the pc talking points like oh I am not questioning his patriotism. Well yes we are!! As we should!

A Patriot is one who Loves America, and fights for what's best for her NOT to incorporate socialism, one step away from communism or totalitarianism! One who put country before self, and certainly before money.

Obama cited Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman as presidents who met with enemies.

Does he know no history?

Neither Roosevelt nor Truman ever met with any leaders of the Axis powers

Barack's list of topics you can't talk about:

1. His patriotism(or lack thereof)
2. His middle name
3. His wife
4. His church. Oops! I meant his "former church of 20 years.
5. Reverend Wright
6. His white grandmother

Feel free to add to the list.

Just because his puppet master stood on an American flag in the 21st century doesn’t mean that he hates this country.

He hates this country because it is the greatest sin against God/Allah.

When Obama DEFENDS the 2nd Amendment right of the citizens to bear arms and respects the Constitution as a document that LIMITS the powers of government, I’ll start to believe he supports what this nation stands for.

Of course Obama would worry about such a tactic. It would “distract” the voters. If we peons are distracted, we can no longer hear the eloquent, empty words coming forth from BHO’s silver tongue.

I agree with you gidget7. He is campaigning for the most influential office in the world, so we deserve to know as much about the man as possible. He will have access to nukes for god sakes, not to mention our wallets. Besides, patriotism is kinda a requirement for the job. If he had proved it to us already, we wouldn't be making a big deal of it.

He didn’t even live in this country until he was 12 or 13. He had been chanting “Death to America” in Indonesian mosques for 6 years. His mom was a commie nut. He hates this country as it is; he wants power so he can remake it in the manner of Hugo Chavez. He hates the founders, he hates true Christians, he despises the whites who make up 65 percent of the country, he doesn’t care much for Mexicans. Why would anyone say anything about his patriotism?

What's all this brouhaha over Obama's patriotism, anyway? Are we talking to the Islamic cousins in Kenya? Maybe the Islamic stepfather in Indonesia? His cushy teenage years at Punahou in Honolulu and later at Harvard, all gratis, provided by his grandparents....typical Whites? It's obvious he's a new generation All American Boy (thanks to a bankroll and Affirmative Action (Insh'Allah)).

I awoke this morning to O's speech promising the defense of Israel, the hard diplomatic stand he'll take with Iran forcing them to relinquish their nuclear weapons programs and how the Bush policies in Israel and Palestine gave rise to Hamas. How he wants Jerusalem to remain the capital of Israel! How he'll meet the Iranian threat with all the power of his rhetorical nonsense available as POTUS.

It was stunning!


Does anyone have notes on the supportive responses by Louis Farrakhan or Rev. Wright or Sheikh Ahmed Yassin on this speech?
