Excuse me if this has been posted prior. I did do two different searches and didn't see this title pop up. It was new to me so might be new to others, too.
It would have been better if she had noted the unemployment affects all people, instead of playing the race card and giving Obammy a pass.
Good for her.
What a disgusting Weiner he is.
instead of playing the race card and giving Obammy a pass.
She called Obama a dictator wanting the illegal vote. She didn’t give Obama a pass at all.
There are three huge frauds in DC. McCain the plane crasher and daddy’s boy, Kerry the two eyed puff jawed swimming purple people heart eater and obama the son of a Kenyan muslim who doesn’t even use his real name. And the American people, plus the world, is supposed to believe them.
What was McCain’s response?
Thanks for posting this, beaversmom! :)
At least she didn’t play the poker card!
She did pretty well.
Yes she did. She noted the skin color of people who look like Obama.
I would have liked to hear her noted that double-digit unemployment actually affects white people as well. And I’m sure others.
Most of what she said was good, but tacking on “skin color” puts me off of it. If it’s always special interest and not Americans as a whole.
hear her note - s/b
She got some great digs in at Obama! I didn’t like the racial stuff she employed, but after thinking about it, I think I understand why she did it. She wanted to speak to “her people”. The ones that are reachable and I’m sure there are some that are just not informed. Sometimes you have to do that by showing why things hurt/help them personally. Sometimes people, any people, aren’t reached if they are not shown how it impacts them directly. She was doing the leftist thing back at them (well him and he’s supposed to be on our side!) and I think she did an effective job.
She needed to start with Obama. And hitting McCain with it, and the rest of the idiots in D.C. including Harry Reid, etc.
If she would do that, and with a slight modification, I’d be all on board.
Ah thanks lp! Great to see you around! Was thinking about you recently as I hadn’t seen your posts in a long time. You’ve probably been around but just not me too much. I gotta keep better tabs on you. :)
I think she was pointing out that O-bomb-me has hurt blacks. I agree with you about separating everyone into groups.
Yeah I think so. I guess I am trying to say she should point out Obammy has hurt all of us without the tribal effect.
Otherwise she did great.
You make some excellent points. To reach most people, it must be presented on a personal level that they can associate with.
He giggled really awkwardly and made a lame joke. Not sure if he had more of a lame response as video cut off right there.
Only with the way he is sucking up to Duh-1, and finding ways to make Obama's policy initiatives more palatable to the masses (new! mint-flavored sh*t), I can't see that it would have made much difference outside of Sarah Palin holding his feet to the fire. At present, he isn't showing me much.
That was just my perception from listening to what she cares about passionately which is basically all of what we care about. She’s probably as frustrated with “her people” as much as we are...maybe more so.
I worked with a black man once and he was so disgusted with most blacks that he could hardly stand it.
Oh I know! I’ve “met” one or two on FR and seen posts by a few others.
She did good.
They are to be commended for coping so well. Can you imagine if 95% of whites were libs. That would be hell on earth. It’s terrible enough as it is.
This wo man is right.
Actually, she played the race card against Obama.
But she **only** noted unemployment in one particular group.
And I’m sick of hearing of special interest groups.
Watching her read her question from that clipboard, I would say she's not used to speaking truth to power on an everyday basis. But she did it. Ok, so, she didn't cover all bases. But I see the video already has 21,818 hits. So, not bad at all. Atta girl!
Yeah, she just needs a minor adjustment.
And she should be in Obama’s face, first.
Along with the gang of thieves at the House and Senate.
But she **only** noted unemployment in one particular group.
She was making a point. I agree with you but a black woman pointing out what Obama has done to blacks is a good thing.
She did well.
That’s an excellent point and one I had not considered before.
McCain was a RINO whimp when he ran for POTUS. But....he is much worse now!!! Needs to resign or be recalled by voters in Arizona!!!! Waste of an American and traitor to his country!!! Senile old man, IMHO, and I’m older then him!!! That Black woman did a good job.....overall. Our country needs many more folks like her, period!!!
If she can refer to illegal aliens, who have a different skin color, why not to people of her own color?
I think she did a great job. Obviously McCain was at a loss as to an answer.
That she might end up POTUS would not have fit with the GOPe plans to march toward a New World Order (as put forth by daddy Bush some time ago), and in fact would quite possibly have led to the whole applecart being upset by someone who was not afraid to call them out.
So McCain continues in his slot, but is ever more state-centric and globalist.
He told her she should have voted for him for president, and then giggled like Beavis and Butthead...he really did the best imitation of those caricatures, it was so natural.
He is a buffoon.
She did a great job in pointing out the Leftist agenda of the Obama administration and the purposeful damage that he and his minions are doing to our country.
Whatever his response, he looked ready to give a standard, pre-rehearsed time killer, designed to change the subject and confuse the crowd.
what a dick McCain is
“if only you would have voted for me for President”
For almost everyone who is Black, everything is about skin color.
The audience response should have been to throw him into the street.
Unfortunately, I fear that may be the only way to reach them with a conservative message. They have been so indoctrinated that anything other than racial/identity politics is white noise (oops, was that racial?) to them. You have to say something in a manner that resonates with them. Talk about the racial/identity aspect and show how negative it is. Show them how conservatism helps their group. Once they start questioning the liberal position and accepting conservatism the natural evolution of their thinking will come around to rejecting racial/identity politics all together
Your mileage may vary on the thought. I think it's the only way to reach someone that has gone so far down the path of racial/identity politics that they can see nothing else.
Was he playing video poker the whole time she was talking?
After watching that women make her statement it reminded that when someone talks as she did you DO NOT SEE COLOR... you HEAR AMERICA speaking.
McCain is such a twit.
