Obama criticises 'ugly' tactics
news.bbc.co.uk ^ | 10/25/08 | BBC

Posted on 10/25/2008 2:51:26 PM PDT by melt

US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has attacked his rival for negative campaigning in the final days before the election.

Mr Obama, appearing in Nevada, said the "ugly phone calls, the misleading mail and TV ads, the careless, outrageous comments" were preventing change.

Republican rival John McCain, aware of being behind in the polls as he spoke in New Mexico, said he was a "fighter".

He told supporters not to give up hope of a White House victory.

Both candidates were campaigning in western US states during the weekend.

Nevada, New Mexico and Colarado were all Republican at the last election but could prove crucial if the vote is tight on 4 November.

Mr Obama, returning to the campaign trail after two days off in which he flew to his ailing grandmother in Hawaii, said a negative campaign was not what the country needed.

Anything that is said about a democRat is ugly, racist, a smear or an attack. Tough Crap! I am so sick of all of this. The truth is the truth! It’s not negative.

I have two answers to that, Senator:

1. “If you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.”
2. “Sarah Palin is a c....”

McCain’s an idiot.

He’s being called a racist yet is holding off on the Wright nuke for fear of being called a racist.

Makes sense.

McCain’s ads are “preventing change”. Well, cry me a river. I hope none of our enemies try to prevent change or obama would break down and cry.

Quick, send in the media storm troopers, they will prevent the preventers of change from changing change!

Given the whirwind we've been through this past year, anybody still seeking change is a chucklehead.

The Democrats have spent the last 8 years dragging American politics into the gutter and the Republicans are the ones stooping to ugly tactics>

Barry, call the White House and ask GWB what its like on the receiving end of real abuse every single day for almost a decade.

Obama’s running totally false ads in Florida (every other commercial break) that are attempting to scare the old folks. Same old, same old...McCain will take away your Medicare, or your SS. The lies are so blatant that even the liberal papers have said they’re false.

Simply projection-—tried and tested Alinsky tactic.

Accuse your opponent of what you, in fact, are doing.

I thought this photo more appropriate so I uploaded it to my server naming it the same name as the other one, so it overrided the first baby photo.

Regarding switching photographs:

If you are using photobucket or similar, you’ll have to delete your original photo, because I don’t believe you can override. The new upload under the same name comes out with a (1) on it or similar I think.

I think I googled "bad-seed baby" and it came up. :)

But don't google that ... I'm only joking!

(And I do not know whose baby it is, but it seemed to fit the post.)
