I’ll check in later. I think its to address the latest McCain ads. :-D
Obama Alters Drilling Stance
Obama opposes slavery reparations, apology
...ah ah ah ah ...um um um um
Take some questions...?
“Ah...er....ahhhh....hmmm well...you know... ahhhhh errrr.... ahhhhhh ....”

Obama, speaking to Democratic governors in Chicago, Illinois, hit McCain hard for his support of the gas tax “holiday” as well as drilling off the U.S. coasts.
Obama told the 16 governors attending an economic summit at the Chicago History Museum that McCain “has essentially embraced” President Bush’s energy policy.
“When I hear McCain say that he is now in favor of the same oil drilling off the coast that he was opposed to just a week ago, what he doesn’t tell you is that George Bush’s own energy department has said that this would have no impact on consumers until 2030,” he said, “no appreciable impact for the next 22 years. Something they’re not telling consumers.”
At an afternoon news conference in Jacksonville, Florida, Obama continued to lash out at McCain’s oil drilling policy.
“John McCain’s proposal, George Bush’s proposal to drill offshore here in Florida, and other places around the country, would not provide families with any relief, this year, next year, five years from now,” he said. “Believe me, if I thought there was any evidence at all that drilling could save people money who are struggling to fill up their gas tanks by this summer or the next few years, I would consider it, but it won’t.”
At 8:30 on a Saturday morning? His internal polling must be even better than we thought!
His moonbat base is gonna'go mental if he does. Once you win a primary on far left issues... to backtrack on your positions is the kiss-of-death to a campaign.
Way to go Obama!
McCain needed to be spanked for wanting to cut the cost of gasoline for consumers!
It will sound like this press conference:
Maybe they’re trying to get ahead of the President’s radio address for the 10 people who pay attention to it.
Following up on recent House passage of a bill to end the ban, the Senate on Tuesday approved a measure to allow oil and gas development in a portion of the Gulf of Mexico's coastal waters.
“This bill is welcome news for the consumers of the United States,” said Rep. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.), chairman of the Senate Energy Committee, just before the Senate approved the measure by a bipartisan 71-25 vote.
Obama voted against the bill and said the Republican leadership was being “dishonest” by believing the nation's energy problem could be solved with more drilling.
His moonbat base will know that Boma is only saying what he must in order to win. They will lay low, as Rev. Wright has done, after he warned us that Boma will have to say things to get elected. It is US who must know that he will revert back to wild-eyed socialism if elected.
Ah...er....ahhhh....hmmm well...you know... ahhhhh errrr.... ahhhhhh ....
"I.... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah...
Does that uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... answer your uuh... um... uh ... um.... ah... question.
Maybe he will point his finger and say “Shame on you John McCain”
His moonbat base is gonna'go mental if he does. Once you win a primary on far left issues... to backtrack on your positions is the kiss-of-death to a campaign.Oh, it gets better than that...
His explanation will be, that he still thinks it will do nothing short term, (keep those tires aired up) however, in the interest of getting along and working across the aisle I will go along with it to compromise.
(polls show I need to do this to have a chance)
Does anyone know if his stammering press conference will be streaming anywhere?
Tell me about Obama and reparations. I read in a speech the other day he said to black journalists reparations should be “deeds and not just words” but I haven’t heard any more about it. Has it been noticed in any media outlet?
Obama must be “Living on Tulsa Time.”
A key strategist for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., says the candidate’s reference to faces on the dollar bill was indeed an acknowledgement of race and its role in the presidential campaign.
Reason why I suspect Obama has Attention deificit, with DSM-IV criteria for ADHD(symptoms) from;
1. Often forgetful in daily activities.
Example: Obama doesnt pay much attention to McCains campaign adds, yet he knows what isnt in them,
2. Often has trouble keeping attention on tasks or play activities.
Example: Joe Bidens observations;
Biden wasnt always defending Obama...
On Aug. 1, 2007, when Obama unveiled his counterterrorism agenda, the Biden camp fired off a snarky email congratulating him for his Johnny-come-lately position on Afghanistan, noting that during two Foreign Relations Committee hearings on Afghanistan and other subjects, Obama didnt ask questions about the Taliban, Al Qaeda, or Afghanistan.
3. Often forgetful in daily activities.
Example: Obama says ahhhhh all the time
4. Often avoids, dislikes, or doesnt want to do things that take a lot of mental effort for a long period of time (such as schoolwork or homework).
Example: Obama only need to spend 1 day in Iraq to study for a conclusion
“Hello blah,blah,blah kill Whitey. Blah blah,blah,blah,change, blah blah. White devils. blah blah.
Love me, blah blah,blah,blah. I am kind, blah, it's the White crackers fault, blah.....
He’s going to use one of those words in each sentence at least once and each word will be used at least three times.
Obama.....”There’s no doubt that when it comes to our treatment of Native Americans as well as other persons of color in this country, we’ve got some very sad and difficult things to account for,” Obama told the convention.
“I personally would want to see our tragic history, or the tragic elements of our history, acknowledged,” he told conventioneers.
“I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it’s Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds,” he said.
Let’s see Saturday morning at 8:30 am Eastern. Hmmmmm he must be going to say someting or make a big Flip-Flop that will upset his nutroot base. The nutroots will not be awake to watch live in any time zone!
You can bet the questions to be asked are all pre scripted as will be his answers.
IN THE HEADLINES
Obama calls for $1,000 energy rebates to be paid with windfall profits tax on the oil industry ... McCain says Obama opposes education policies that would help underprivileged students ... McCain and Obama campaigns trade barbs on who brought race, negative tone to campaign ...
Republicans should rejoice. Be confident! He's imploding. Polls show the growing backlash against him. He's being defined as an empty suit, an arrogant demagogue, the vain presumptuousness, the media's celebrity choice.
Lord Obama is letting us all know today what makes him vulnerable. He's on the defensive. This press conference is the behavior of an inexperienced rookie. It will show in his answers (so pay attention).
I cannot wait to know what else bothers him, and add more to his tally of gaffes.
I know these people and reversals such as these would totally deflate their passion for the boy-king. It is blind passion that motivates these idiots to the polls on election day... not values, issues or common sense.
As mine, every time they insult McCain for his age, I will counter with Obama’s Attention Deficit.
Does anyone believe he’ll be asked a questions that hasn’t been previewed already?
That's so nice of him. Then the consumer can use the $1,000 energy rebate to pay the cost of the tax that the oil companies will pass onto the consumer. And round, and round we go. What a complete and total moron.
No matter, the news media will play clips of it every day next week...Oh how great it was, he was perfect, he slapped McCain on race issue, tingle tingle tingle.
Maybe he has not finished eating his waffles..........
Barry's gonna make Carter look like a piker.
