Well, if you live in PA, the local school boards confiscate your wealth every time the teachers want another raise....and you have nothing to say about it.

Either: he’s speaking about how they won’t have any after obama

or he’s striking out at the middle and lower classes and insulting them as to their earning power.

He’s right, the democrat supporters of obama are all wealthy. How else did he raise over 600 million bucks?

‘Fast Eddie’ rips his own state residents. He’s already called them racist, earlier this year.

Perhaps the “want” to get wealthy, and THAT’s why they support McCain, eh, Ed?....or is that not “allowed” in PA?.......

Palin panic srikes...her sneak attack behind enemy lines has em reeling in Pennsylvania. By the way do I not recall hearing over and over that if Obama was not 10 points ahead in polls with a week to go he is a goner. Well he ain’t 10 up and less than a week.

Big Fat Fast Eddie’s tax hike didn’t do much to add to my wealth.

A couple of the posters at HCF think he is a stealth PUMA. I think someone even called him the DNC equivalent of a “concern troll” lol

WHP 580 just reported that a Franklin & Marshall Poll puts Obama up 12 points in PA and said the lead is a result of Obama strength in central PA. (they must have polled only Harrisburg city residents).

Hmmm...and who is the Governor of all these people who have no wealth and what party does he belong too?

If “The One” is a shoe-in for election, then why all the panic and foaming at the mouth? Something has these guys rattled. That says a lot because they are usually just unhinged.

The Democrat Party is the party of the poor, and the Republican Party is the party of the rich. Or so that’s what they have been telling us for well over a century.

Well, “they” are right! Each is what it is and BOTH want to increase their member numbers..............The Dems want more people to be poor, and the Republican want more people to be rich.

And BOTH parties will do that which will increase those numbers..........

OK, PA voters are racist, rednecks, and now according to their governor, are just plain stupid. Why, they have no wealth to spread and we, out of our benevolence have just told these rubes that we intend to steal from the ones that do? What the hell is the matter with them? Yep, racist redneck retards.

Yes, all under the radar. a lot of 5 and 10 dollar donations.
This is so blatantly fraud and no wonder he decided not to accept public money after promising to do public funding. Harder to fraud.

Ah, so the truth is out. The Republican Party isn’t the party of the rich. Most Republicans don’t fit Obama’s definition of rich. We ... gasp ... are conservative because of our principles. We respect human life and happen to like capitalism and the U.S. Constitution.

I don’t watch much TV, but the ones I have seen are few and far between in comparison to Obama’s. The most prominent one I have seen recently is from the RNC and it’s the one with the ocean and the “stormy” times.

I see a ton of local House Rep ads — William Russell ads (Murtha’s opponent) and lots of ads regarding either Melissa Hart and Altmire.

Now just a minute here, I thought that all pubbies were rich and mean people. Now, Mr. Ed says it ain’t so? How can this be? Why the earth is shaking beneath my feet.

Man oh man, watching the left trying to sniff its own rear end is more fun than watching a demrat voter try to find the right lever to pull—or chad to punch—in the voting booth.

Life just does not get better than this.

E Rendell is a bag of wind, he knows quite well Penn will go for McCain, but he is blowing smoke up Obamas butt.

Rendell is a political hack who will do anything for some federal bucks.

Wealth encompasses more than money. We are wealthy if we have health, the love of our families, the freedom to associate with those we choose, to earn an honest living, to worship (or not) as we please, etc., etc., etc.

I’d venture a guess that the PA crowds at McCain/Palin rallies are wealthier than Gov. Rendell can even imagine. But his comments do show what his priorities are.

But most of the people at Sarah and John’s rallies want to own their own businesses and we don’t need high tax government to tell us to hand over our working capital to some goofball inside the beltway.

You can go pound sand, Eddie.

Fast Eddie's comments are directed toward voters in the Philly suburbs, who are worse than New Yorkers in terms of wanting to appear "upscale."

They loved him as Mayor, even though it continued to decline on his watch (Filthadelphia has been in decline since the Dems took over after WWII).

Agreed. It will be a sweet moment when the MSM is forced to put Pennsylvania in the McCain column (of course that probably won't happen until ... oh ... mid-December).
