McCain's Doing Better at the PollsWhat Are YOU Doing to Help Obama?

October 28, 2008

The race has tightened. An eight-point race has become a five-six point one.
Does that mean I think Obama will lose? Not at all.
But it does mean we should FEAR complacency. It’s our biggest enemy.
Now get out there and canvass for Obama and the Democrats!
And if anyone complains about “spreading the wealth,” first ask them if they’re making $250,000 or more. If they are, remind them that even McCain supports a progressive income tax which has been around since 1913, and that Obama would do nothing more than return them to (somewhat less than) the tax rates in the strong economy of the Clinton years, when the rich got substantially richer. Tell them our deficit is huge, and since they wanted the war in Iraq (as almost everyone who complains about Obama did), they should have to pay for it. Nothing in life is free.

    Couldn’t disagree more. Biden has made a gaffe or three. So has Obama. But I have a lot of respect for Biden. He’s occasionally wrong, but he’s a very intelligent man with a good heart.
    And Obama’s NOT running to “restore black awareness and power.” That’s ridiculous. He’s running to be President of the United States.

    The problem is not we democrats are going to do but what this dingbat leading the party is going to do. Biden can not get his story straight and is a complete moron. He is truely ruining our oppurtunity and his mouth is the one placing doubts in the voters. Unfortunately, Barack should have picked one of us rather than another white power driven man with no knowledge. Barack knows what he’s doing and I am sure he had some reasons but I know after he wins that we will restore black awareness and power.

    In answer to RG, who called into the show today, Biden chaired the House Judiciary Committee on the Clarence Thomas nomination. Biden voted AGAINST the confirmation of Clarence Thomas both on the Judiciary Committee and in the full Senate.

    If McCain wins this election–there will be no political catharsis for America–the sickness of historical spiritual dichotomy will remain within–the covert processes of its government–and the fearful hearts and minds of its national group karma–he who has ears–let him hear–it will be time to duck and cover when a wounded-POW jet-pilot with the persona of Mr. Maggoo takes over
