It is time for Obama to ask David Plouffe to step down.

David Plouffe is my new hero.

Actually, it is time for Obama & Biden to acknowledge the office of President and Vice President is FAR above their pay grade, competency, worthiness and character..

Both of the miscreants have already exceed the wildest boundaries of the Peter Principal....

The White House is no place for a corrupt Communist Black Racist Muslim like Obama or a corrupt dimwit like Biden..

As I understood it, Greenspan said McCain’s tax cuts wouldn’t work without spending reductions. Obama’s camp said, “See, even Greenspan doesn’t think McCain’s tax plan is a good idea.” To which McCain replied, “I have never suggested tax cuts without accompanying spending cuts so I am in full agreement.” End of story. Another blunder by Obama.

Did McCain really reply?

Democrats expecting different results from a same ideas for last 40 years. But look how well intentioned they are? They care so much? NOPE.

I’m glad were not watching a real meltdown in action from an surprise terrorist attack.

These guys couldn’t find their own bottoms with a map, flashlight, and gps.

Do you want to put in your 4th string guys? These people would make our Gov’t and Country as useless and inept as them.

No a GOOD leader would have plans. Just shows you where an lifetime of Liberalism will get you demoralized, no confidence in yourself or country, and can only asign blame.

Dependent on being told what to do and flushing tax dollars down the toilet. If you didn’t have a willing media and ability to give away our money no one would ever elect you.

And with the spread of early voting and absentee voting in so many states, many millions of votes will have been cast two or three weeks before election day, which makes it harder for dirty campaigns to do an “October surprise” and influence the outcome.

Sorry to disagree but the absentee ballot is the favorite of vote fraud artists everywhere. The Vote-by-Mail setup is ideal for activists who control large urban counties to do late ballot stuffing. And, they do!

After five years as a prisoner of war, John McCain returned home with physical injuries that would have a lasting impact. His broken arms make it painful to lift his hands above his shoulders or to use a keyboard.

Barack Obama thinks that’s funny. The guy can’t use a computer. He and his wife read e-mails together and she will key in his responses.

Barack Obama... Quick to mock...not ready to lead.

I quite agree. a most responsive reply. Would love this see this set forth in an ad

If I get close enough to Reynolds Wrap, I come up with an alternative theory on why Obama didn’t pick Hillary.

He couldn’t stand the thought of a woman in power, as it does go completely against Islamic teachings.

Yeah he was emailing (mole me) on a regular basis to update on the Obama campaign.

I wrote back last week to tell him I am voting for McCain Palin and he wrote back an auto letter thanking me for my responses and where to go to some other response site.

Maybe someone finally got a clue and read my email have not gotten any from him or Barack for a few days.

Right Obama Hussien had to 'work out' ... had to get that 37 bowling avergage up.

For a campaign that relies so much on celebrity, so much on being an 'untouchable' Obama Hussein certainly squandered (in the least) a photo-op opportunity.

Yes indeed many in the wishful thinking crowd did predict that. Which totally overlooked the fact that Rush's huge audience gains occurred during the GHWB Admin.

All of the left serves as his writing staff :)

“This is a question which should be used to ambush Obama.
Get him going with a set-up about Guantanamo, and the “inhuman” practices (har!) there.

Then ask why he is in favor of more rights for the terrorists than for his opponent as President — as proven by the fact that he used McCain's injuries from torture as a sign of stodginess, not heroism..

Then ask him about Ayers.”

Absolutely brilliant, I like the way you think.

It is good that McCain's camp has a rebuttal.
However, I doubt the truth of this rebuttal.
You can type on a computer without raising your arms above your head. You can operate a computer even without being able to tie your shoes.
My wife's cousin had Lou Gehrig's disease and was able to operate a computer. Special software is available for the handicapped. Various software packages are available for various stages of being handicapped. The disease of my wife's cousin progressed to the point that he used special software where all he had to do was wait until the right letter would stream by and he would nod his head to choose it. He is now dead, but he was able to operate a computer almost until his death.
If McCain doesn't operate a computer, I think it is more likely that he just doesn't want to. And if he doesn't want to, it is alright with me.
Sorry to be such a doubter.

Go easy with the “meltdown” stuff. This is a campaign with lots of money. IT HAS THE ENTIRE AMERICAN MEDIA IN ITS CORNER. It doesn’t have to campaign AT ALL for the Black vote (13 percent of total), which will go to him on the basis of racial solidarity alone. His supporters are preparing massive voter fraud in places like St Louis, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Madison, Wisconsin.This campaign is still very formidable. Overconfidence loses football games and elections.

If you did y our research, you would have read that McCain let's Cindy do the actual keyboard punching as his afflictions render him “too laborious” on the keyboard. (because of his injuries)

I think his time is better spent in other ways. I don't remember being able to easily use a keyboard listed as a prerequisite for being president. That's what secretaries are for....and in McC’s place, Cindy has been doing it for him. He dictates, she punches.

"0bama claims to spend a lot of money building voter organizations that will be ready by then. Yes, I’m aware they might include the dead people as well, but still, we need to work harder on that front."

Democrat campaigns have rather a history of throwing money around stupidly so that they spend a lot and get little in return. For one thing, they maintain bloated, expensive staffs of people who don't accomplish much. Those voter organizations may not consist of much, in reality. May it be the same this year as in the past.

Yes. Of course. It wouldn't surprise me if many CEOs of large corporations don’r use a computer. They could think they had more important things to do, and let others do that for them.
If the rebuttal works, fine. But I think it would be wise to check with McCain to see if that rebuttal is the one he wants others to use.

McCain’s inability to raise his arms is obviously not his only problem with his arms. Keyboarding is a complex activity which requires lots of coordination among all fingers hand muscles, and both forearms, plus the shoulders are important as well. It was McCain’s shoulders that got the worst injuries, I believe. He probably simply does not have the time to make use of the generally quite slow computer devices that would allow one to make use of email. The handicapped people I know who use computers with special aids have to work with excruciating slowness. Public figures do hot have that kind of time.

When things get bad enough, the press will turn on Obama and crush him like a bug. The reason? They don't want everybody saying Obama lost because the press ignited a backlash by trashing Sarah. The press will want to say...."...no, it's because Obama has no experience, screwed up CAC, hung around with extremists, and committed a thousand gaffes."

Unless Obama turns this around,this is going to be atotal collapse.

When the opposition gives you an opening, take it. Don’t hope there is another one!

We cannot risk that the syndicated talk show host “may” talk about this next week. This should be a call to arms by ALL Freepers to inundate ALL of the shows with calls and emails about this.

Include info about the Forbes and Boston Globe and NY Times 2000 articles about McCain’s injuries and his frequent monitoring of emails (with Cindy).

After this barrage of coverage, Uh...Bama will be forced to walk on eggshells for the rest of the campaign (or make more errors). Either way, this is THE opportunity to end this NOW. I will do my part early Monday morning. Will the rest of you assist?

I am waaay ahead of you. I have been posting the ad like mad on all the discusion forums I can find along with all the youtube rebuttals that show how dumb the ad was.

Mail the youtube links to everyone you know. Doug From Upland has an awesome one that goes into detail with quotes from interviews 5 or more years ago about why McCain can't type on a keyboard and how Cindy sits with him and does his emails.

If you got email addresses of reporters at the major newspapers please mail them the links to those youtube rebuttals.
