Skip to comments.Obama's lowball attacks
Posted on 09/28/2008 5:29:14 AM PDT by Kid Shelleen
What exactly is the change we're supposed to believe in this election year? That Barack Obama represents a new kind of politics? Or is change tied to hope, as in we hope he re-morphs from typical negative-ad-slinging pol back to magical new Obamassiah once he's safely elected president?
Does Obama even know?
In his ad "Plan for Change," Obama decries the "petty attacks and distractions" of the campaign. "Bitter partisan fights" won't solve our problems, he says. What will?
"A new spirit of unity and shared responsibility."
That ad is in English.
In Spanish, he has a very different message, one much closer to sleazy race-baiting than the spirit of la unidad.

A Really good article. Surprising coming from and Inquirer columnist.
Smerconish isn’t a conservative. He pretended to be for a while to get his career started, but now even he admits he isn’t one. With his ties to Liberals like Spector and others, I was always suspious. Now he is quite out in the open about it. And he’s one of the biggest opportunists, with one of the biggest egos, there is.
I said you mean it posted the truth so you think that is leaning right?"
Conservatives, who are so accustomed to being lied about, sometimes make the same mistake. : )
I think he’s at about the 40% line myself, I mean a little more likely to side with conservatives. But I think he’s got a crush on Obama and love is blind.
I’ve been saying it for years, long before Obama. Smerconish, who once bragged on his talk radio show about having an after dinner cigar with Castro while on a trip there with Arlen Specter, and who supported Michael Schiavo and is pro-choice, is no conservative.
not defending him, but elements giving him some conservative cred, pro-military, war on terror vs. police work (I know that makes him no more conservative than Obama), non-p/c stance on profiling, and at least some even-handedness with guests, which is more than you get out of a true leftist. Plus, doesn’t dissociate from his roots with Rizzo, to whatever degree that makes him conservative.
You can put me on it but the list has to kind of grow on its own, I think.
Furthermore, he's the most narcissistic, superficial, unintellectual, talk show host on radio. It is difficult to understand how anyone can stand listening to him. He lost me a long time ago, and yet almost every time there is a sound bite of him on 1210, throughout the day, it's all about Michael.
I don't mean to belabor the point, and no disrespect to you intended, people should understand, he's no conservative and shouldn't be mistaken for one, and that further he used conservatives and conservatism to launch his radio career.
You can put me on it also. : ) You might post to others on this thread and see if they would like to be on it, as well, which would give you a start. : )
Hi all I am going to start a ping list for news of Metro Philly/Delaware Valley area; if anybody would like to be on it just e-mail or respond to this post ...
There ya go! : ) Thanks KS!
We’re no longer there, but I still care about the area so sure, add me to the list. I’m on Trib’s list as well
