Skip to comments.Obama: McCain, Palin ‘Lying’ About Maverick Claims
Posted on 09/09/2008 3:55:27 AM PDT by Aussie Dasher
FLINT, Mich. Barack Obama broadly accused his Republican rivals of dishonesty Monday, citing former lobbyists working for John McCain, Sarah Palins shifting stance on the Bridge to Nowhere and their promise to change Washington.
With national polls finding the Democratic presidential nominee trailing or in a dead heat with McCain, Obama began the campaigns final eight-week push by criticizing McCains popular running mate as much as the Arizona senator himself.
He said Palin has an interesting biography Mother, governor, moose shooter. Thats cool, he said but the election should be about who can change peoples lives for the better. He said that wont come from a Republican ticket that almost always supports the same positions as President Bush even though they say they will bring reform.
I mean, you cant just make stuff up, Obama said of a new McCain ad that says Palin stopped the Bridge to Nowhere. You cant just recreate yourself. You cant just reinvent yourself. The American people arent stupid.
Obama wouldnt go so far as to say McCain and Palin are lying, even when the audience tried to goad him into it, but he began showing an ad Monday that did.
Politicians lying about their records? an announcer asks over a shot of McCain and Palin boarding a plane. You dont call that maverick. You call it more of the same.

Who is a desperate little 'Rat then?
Obama is lying about ‘change’ with all his recycling of Jimmy Carter’s policies.
When has Barack Obama ever opposed his own party? That needs to be repeated over and over again until that is the only thing thought in the voting booth...
Sarah is the best. Drawing fire from the democrat sappers in the obama media while Mcain scoops up Independent voters. GREAT STRATEGY>>>
Obama plays the angry black man card.
Let’s see how many votes that wins him.
“You cant just recreate yourself. You cant just reinvent yourself. The American people arent stupid.”
HA! HA!! - It works just FINE for you Commies, Barry! You and Hillary and... (name your favorite american socialist!)
YOU guys sure think the American people are stupid!
I am really disappointed that McCain seems to be going back to the “change” mantra. I thought he had left that silliness for Obama.
Let’s see the hands of everybody who thinks either one will really make a big change in Washington. OK, that’s one, two ... oh. sorry, you were just scratching your head?
Would it be okay with this bozo if we didn't change things much? I kinda like the United States of America the way it is.
“Obama plays the angry black man card.”
He does? Where?
IMO, the angry black man card would require he accuse McCain of doing or saying something solely because Obama is black.
Every time I think of Obama I think of a certain Andrew Dice Clay quote.
You do understand that McCain is using Rove’s strategy here. That is to use your opponent’s greatest strength against him. In this case, he has virtually stolen Obama’s biggest claim right out from under him.
thought this was funny so i'm posting it
He is not very articulate.
I can hear him now, across the bargaining table, saying, “That’s cool.”
No one will know what the heck he is talking about.
Attack the VP = Lower your stature
Mother, governor, moose shooter. Thats cool.
Yeah, she can do something besides talk about herself.
My word, now that things aren't all roses Mr. Hussein Obama is really getting snippy.
Come on, BHO! Your buddies in the media have been calling McCain a maverick for years, as many who disagreed with him know. In Alaska, they’ve known that about Palin, too. YOU seem to be the guy who won’t fight against his party when it is wrong or corrupt.
