Obama expects GOP to attack his patriotism

Republicans’ only option is to paint Democrat as ‘very risky choice’

NEW YORK - A day after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama said Wednesday that he expected an organized Republican attack on his integrity and patriotism because “it’s very hard for them to talk about where they want to take the country.”

Obama, a first-term senator from Illinois, touched on a variety of issues in a wide-ranging interview with Brian Williams, anchor of “NBC Nightly News.” Among them were what roles his defeated rival for the nomination, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her husband, the former president, might play in his campaign, as well as how soon he expected to debate his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain.

The important thing, Obama said, is to find the best way to build a united Democratic fall campaign to answer what he expects to be a Republican assault on his devotion to America — “the attempt to paint me as a very risky choice.”

I question where Obama’s loyalties lie, but given his past history, I don’t think an “attack” is really necessary.

MSNBC should be boycotted. After this election is over, there may not be an MSNBC.

If we peons are distracted, we can no longer hear the eloquent, empty words coming forth from BHO’s silver tongue.

Not this peon, brother.

“What patriotism? eh, Barry?”

Exactly.

Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas”> concept of patriotism is to hate America and works 24/7 to weaken it and make it into a third world country.

I really don’t think working class whites who are registered Democrat will go for him as time goes on, neither will a significant share of the Jewish vote. It will be pointy headed academics, liberal elites, the Kos and Move On crowd, stupid students who are just gaga about this guy but know nothing of politics (can they find Afghanistan on a map?), and a lot of black folks who are just happy to see a black guy in there and really don’t care about his stand on issues. I am really praying for some hoof in mouth incidents (gaffes galore)-— also Sistah Michelle might entertain us some more.

An imprecise paraphrase. But I know what Obama is. A man who can recite the Islamic call to prayer and calls it one of the most beautiful sounds in this world. And that is from the New York Times.

Well, your mileage may vary, but I have posted the same sentiments about Hussein ever since I learned about his history, especially his Indonesian hiatus. They just had a study about how 9/11 type trauma affects the brain. I’d like to see a study about how learning Arabic, reciting the Koran and going to Friday prayers from age 6 to 12 affects the brain. I bet there’s a little gland, the “Patriot” gland, that shrinks down to a grain of sand.

You have to have "integrity and patriotism" to have it attacked ping. BO is a DUmb ***.

Attacking Barry H. Obama’s patriotism is like attacking his dinosaur.

No trace of either.

You better believe Obama remembers that Muslim crap. Children are very impressionable. That's why the Jesuits said

Who said: Give me a child before he is seven and he will be mine ...

"Who said: Give me a child before he is seven and he will be mine for life? ... Jesuit maxim obviously the early years of a child's life are the formative ...

Democrats are so pathetic, if the Republicans won’t attack his patriotism, HE will attack his own patriotism and say they did it.
