Skip to comments.Effective debate/rally talking points, & funny/sarcastic stories for McCain people to use
Posted on 10/14/2008 2:12:34 PM PDT by savvyguy
I know something about debates and considered myself pretty good at it! Already emailed to McCain people. I think some of these would make good ads, talking points with media, undecided friends too.
1. Obama's rhetoric on poor and innocent people
To listen to Sen. Obama talk, he makes you FEEL like he care for the little guys, but watch his action. There his half brother, poor George living on a $ a day in Kenya, and Desousa & many Republicans, Christians are raising funds to help him since Obama doesnt give a hoot.
Sen. Obama doesnt want you to know that he flew to Kenya on a fact-finding trip last year, only to drop by to visit George for a couple of minutes (Italian Vanity Fair) but spent hours, even days, campaigning with the powerful cousin, Raila Ordinga, a ruthless man for President. Type in George and hut, you see his picture! He TALKS about Being my brothers keeper, pulling up your own bootstraps, but he wont even buy a pair of boots for George.
Imagine if McCain or Palin has a poor distant cousin in Siberia, the liberal media will be on a plane the same night!
He talks about he cared for innocent victim, but he never condemned Raila Ordinga for his pro-violence instigation because he lost narrowly, having over 500 Christians killed cold-blooded, churches burnt ! Where is the media on this? And he is on the wrong side of that race, deplorable foreign policy at tax-payers expense! He has no business there, rooting for the bad guy!
2. Let's turn out the vote, dead or alive!
Did you hear that my opponents crony friends at ACORN, they even got Mickey Mouse to register to vote in Florida! Every day, more outrageous and ridiculous revelation of ANOTHER city investigating & finding 50% of registered voters are frauds! I guess the Obama camp wants to win so bad, its (change your voice) Dead or alive! Lets get them to vote!
3. Slick & Slippery!
Tonight, I am no longer going to let you get off the hook easily. Sorry, fact is you are slick & slippery! Every time you are caught doing something wrong or befriended another dangerous leftist, you would either hide behind, Racism! or I didnt work for ACORN , Gee. I didnt know he was a bomber and then your story changes
America needs a leader of integrity, not a chameleon in politics!
*making audience laugh is great way to make opponent perceived as losing a point
4. Obama is the most unqualified candidate in history Back in May, the Washington Post poll found that 44% said he was unqualified. now October, number is the same! Amazing ! That is the second-highest total in modern American history, exceeded only by Dukakis in 88! Looking at the poll question, "Regardless of who you may support, do you think Obama does or does not have the kind of experience it takes to serve effectively as president?" Right now it's 54 percent yes, 45 percent no.
5. A man is judged by the friends he keeps
His convicted sleazy buddy, Tony Rezko, was a heartless slumlord who refused to and couldnt afford to turn on the heat for his poor tenant for 4 straight winters, but Rezko had the money to support buddy Obama in his campaign!
The clear pattern is Sen. Obama care to hang out and latch onto famous celebrities Oprah & company , but he talks down on small towns, and people who cling to guns & religions!(smile)
6. To raise taxes and spending during such economic downturn is a SURE recipe for disaster, spelled with a D- even Depression! Beware of Obamanomics, smacks of SOCIALISM and Americans have always rejected socialism!
7. Two Obamas- which?
I like the public Obama, but I worry about the Private Obama, Dont take my word for this , google Obamas leftist friends and you will see William Ayers is just tip of iceberg, followed by a long string of socialists and Marxists buddies/allies! Dont you deny it! (look into his eyes)
Most of his adults like, he run around and form alliances with scores of most infamous radical leftists, who hate America, he is their darling! Its no surprise as you are to the left of John Kerry!
There can only be one conclusion, he must be hiding his radical, socialist past. One Big reason he is slightly ahead is hes got all Big papers, TV networks COVERING for him, New York Times & company whitewashing his problems like ACORN & William Ayer.
Let me look into the voters eyes and ask you this question, would you agree that if the Qaddafi of Libya, Hamas, Communist & socialists groups, racist Louis Farrakhan, out there are endorsing & cheering for a candidate, wouldnt you agree theres something seriously WRONG with this picture? The clear record is all the ABOVE are rooting for Obama!
Why? They perceive weakness in his foreign policy and most likely shared a low view of racist, evil, white America! I dare the media to investigate this, anyone can prove this online!
8. On Anger outrage
We now know the kill him outburst was not directed at Obama, but at terrorist William Ayers, who have killed people, thats still wrong.
Tell you why many of my supporters are upset, much die to the fact the you got all the Big media guns who are consistently giving much more favorable coverage for Democrats, nothing new! This is the most massive News blackout about Obamas troubling, shady radical past, with dozens of far leftists, extremists. If the table is turned, Obama supporters will be calling unfair or FOUL! Too
And its not in my personality to be too aggressive to go after my opponents numerous problems, thats why the anger. Tonight I too am frustrated at this liberal collusion to keep the truth from the American people!
9. On Obama being erratic
Obama just rolled out his rescue plan, part of it calls for a 90 day moratorium on foreclosures for many homeowners. something during primary he condemned Hillary for, you talk about being erratic, there's So much more, I lost count, 4 years ago, he said he wasnt going to run for President, because he admitted he LACKS experience. Thats erratic! After 4 years, its generally agreed he hasnt had ONE single accomplished in Senate! So what qualifies him now? He thought there were 52 States in America! Makes you wonder about Obamas America? (smile)
Sen. Obama is not too black to run for President of US but too GREEN!
We cant trust a WHOLE nation under severest crises to a man who has never experienced, let alone handle a crises. We cant afford socialist experimentation! My running mate got 3 times the executive experience than him, hes running for Prez, shes running for Veep!
10. Obama's Promise vs. Action
Obama would PROMISE you the moon to get more votes (smile) are you (look into camera) that naïve (or gullible) to believe he would actually, in THIS economic climate, actually give 95% of taxpayers a tax cut? when his record shows he in raised taxes 300 times in Illinois! Polls (verify whether still true) showed the people dont trust your tax plan!
11. Making up tax numbers to win
He waxed eloquent saying he would give 96% of American people a tax cut, then when confronted with the fact that 40% (verify number) of people dont pay federal income tax, oops! There he CHANGES again , Alright, tax cut for 95% of American taxpayers!
Bill Clinton promised a tax cut too, but did you have a poor memory, he ended up increasing largest tax increase! Its going to happen again, guaranteed! Theres a sucker born every hour!
Come on, you should know that the Liberal Democritus have never seen a tax they dont like! They want to tax you to your grave! His running mate boasted, Its the patriotic thing to do! I say its the DEPLORABLE thing to do!
12. WHO is WAY out of touch Obama tried to paint me as out of touch by number of homes I owned, my wife owned them. Do you know what he is trying to do, to avoid scrutiny that actually it is HIM who is so out of mainstreams!
If you want to know exactly how far left a candidate is just take a look at their ACLU scorecard. The ACLU scores are based on the issues they think most important. Obama has 82% Lifetime Score on ACLU Scorecard and his VP Biden has 91%!
13. Rebuttal if Obama claims he didnt know Ayers past
The big problem is Ayers' associations were frequently reported on, especially in Chicago where he and his wife had been active. During the 1990s, when Obama lived in Chicago, dozens of stories on Ayers and his wife ran in newspapers, including The New York Times, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times, a database search reveals.
Sen. Obama, if you are THAT incredibly naïve & have not paid attention to big local news for years, we are worried about how fit you really are to LEAD? You cant have it both ways! (Oct. 13, 2008 John Lott, Fox) Start with Obamas first statements on Ayers during a Democratic primary debate hosted by ABC in April. G. Stephanopoulos asked Obama to explain that relationship Obama responded by saying:
This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English in Chicago, who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He's not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.I was 8 years old
Obama's claims that I have not received some official endorsement from and not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis are both wrong. True, Ayers has not publicly endorsed Obama during the current presidential campaign, but Ayers opened his home to Obama very early in his first campaign for the Illinois state Senate and it was a fundraiser for him! Implied he already endorsed you!
The issue of not exchanging ideas regularly is clearly wrong, too. Ayers and Obama served on two boards together: the Chicago Annenberg Challenge from 1995 to 2001 and the Woods Foundation from 1993- 2002 Since they served together with a foundation that gave out over$100 million to groups that they both generally agreed with, there had to be some regular exchange of and agreement on ideas.
As to your were 8 years old why dont you focus on fact you were 40 years old when you worked with Ayers! - As to your lame excuse that you Assumed he was rehabilitated? Has it dawned upon you should ask him straight & what did he reply? Why did you still stay on board?
14. Rebuttal to his no involvement with ACORN
Obama claims to have "no connection" with it, of course you as a lawyer know you could be implicated since you have been SO Close to them, a far left outfit. They are facing criminal investigations for voter registration fraud all across the country, You defended them in court! It was YOu, who TRAINED those thugs to get in bankers' face & shae them down for more loans to the poor! They must be working overtime to shred papers! Dont deny it! That dog wont HUNT!
ACORN has endorsed you for president and you promised ACORN members in 2007 that you would be calling all of you to help shape up the agenda after the election.
The bottom line, Senator Obama, is that you ALWAYS have to clarify what you say or do.
Why is that?
Is it because you’re frequently called to task for stretching the truth?
Is it because you can’t adequately explain your associations without subverting your campaign?
Or is it because you believe that Americans are just stupid and can’t grasp the nuances of community organization?
It would be a great idea if McCain and his team, even his ads, bring in 911 to remind people what it was like.
Ayers doesn’t do anything bc it’s not connected to anything.
If McCain can have the slogan of something in the line of “We just can’t afford another 911” after showing Ayers and others connections with Obama, that would help. It then gets visual. And if McCain gets the “it’s racist” craps, then he has to get tough and answer back. He can’t sit around and be afraid to be called “racist” or whatever. After all the accusations against O are all true.
My Friends, only one candidate has a history of reaching across the aisle to get things done in Washington. Democrats and Republicans working together. I’m not always voted Miss Congeniality by my own Party.
My opponent, who is a great man and would make a wonderful president, has never done that. Not that I would be afraid of voting for him.
They droned on about Sudan, Dufar, the Congo, etc. but what about the millions of lives we saved from the hands of Saddam, his boys and all his henchmen?
If it comes up again McCain needs to remind Obama of the atrocities committed by Saddam that were ended when we went into Iraq. Saddam was one weapon of mass destruction that we did find and destroy, including his two young lads!
I’m convinced the McCain campaign needs to DEMAND that a Special Prosecutor be immediately appointed to discover how this bail out problem began, who in Congress was involved and who profited from it and demand they be identified and punished. Most of the electorate, Republican and Democrat, would agree with this and it would legitimize McCain’s claim to be a reformer and maverick. OBama would most likely oppose since it would lead right back to his party and thus, would serve as a wedge issue to bring more voters over to our side.
I like that, reminding 911, yeah. Will pass on!
My opponent, who is a great man and would make a wonderful president, has never done that. Not that I would be afraid of voting for him.
I can see your first point, but you feel he is a “great man”? You are kidding, right?
I’m joshing. A little needle to Sen. McCain.
Don’t worry, though. I’m voting for Sarah, and that guy she’s running with.
I think McCain should just clearly define socialism/communism and explain why it failed. Tell them that Obama wants to “spread the wealth” and that the plumber was right in that it removes the incentive to work hard.
Ayers commercials must be working

for-q-clinton to Liberty Ship
Very good point. And that should be the standard comeback to any of this he was only 8 years old stuff.
I can see it now. Obama replies to McCain John, I was only 8 years old when he [Ayres] was doing that.
McCain: I was only 8 years old when we won WW2; however, I never associated with those that tried to exterminate the jewsI have better judgement than that
I believe the perfect way to associate Obama with ACORN would be to summarize the involvement of that organization in voter fraud and with the mortgage debacle, then say (sarcastically): “Well, at least we finally know what a community organizer does!”
If you only speak to one person at a time, those ideas only have a very small pay-out.
If you want to show millions of people that BHO isn’t qualified, help me push this plan:
Think up tough questions for BHO, and then encourage people to go read them to him at his appearances. Get his response on video, and upload it to Youtube. It’s really simply, highly effective, and something that no one else is interested in doing.
I like to put some message on U- tubes, do you know how to upload them? What do I do in equipment? costs?
if you know anyone willing to do that, I don’t mind paying someone to do it?
We have to HURRY!
Actually your idea is good & it could work.
Earlier I emailed a bunch of talk show shows & urge them to ask their listeners to all contribute money to a 521 group which is willing to air tough ads, thus bypassing MSM filters & the timid McCain camp.
Are the talk show hosts willing to unite behind a common project as some host because of their egos, want to own the idea! Solo project! Thanks
Good point. I also believe it will help him if he promised to do certain things within first 100 days. Better keep his word though
