Video: Michelle vs. KP on McCain vs. Obama

posted at 7:00 pm on February 27, 2008 by Allahpundit

Totally weak here by KP to suggest that McCain doesn’t think Obama knows Al Qaeda’s in Iraq — it’s called sarcasm — but I wuv her so we’ll let it slide. Also, where’s she getting the idea that Iraq is the preeminent issue in the GOP primaries? The economy’s been the number one concern in every last Republican primary this year.

Don’t forget, though, Petraeus is due to testify again before Congress next month and Sadr’s ceasefire is due to expire in August. Iraq and the Second Amendment are going to matter, no matter how much both sides may wish it was otherwise.

And the guy who won was the one who said he knows nothing about economy. Figures.

But the Dem who’s winning thinks that you can tax and spend your way out of a recession.

Hollowpoint on February 27, 2008 at 7:10 PM

I dont think McCain OR Obama have much of a grip on reality when it comes to the Economy.

Which is why I belive McCain needs a strong economics Conservative in his VP slot.

William Amos on February 27, 2008 at 7:15 PM

The debate on economy is ridiculous on both sides. “Let’s cut taxes” can’t be the answer to every question. Neither is “we’ll pay for it by rolling back taxcuts for teh rich”.

Both parties essentially reinforce this mentality that a bold solution may require no sacrifice.

The GOP wanted McCain, and they got McCain. They were openly stumping for him here in Cali, and you think those last-minute gubernatorial endorsements that helped put him over the top just flew out of the woodwork? Possible, but IMHO unlikely.

ErikTheRed on February 27, 2008 at 7:19 PM

Michelle M. for VP! She has more juevos than most of the Republican men put together. John McHale better play to win or he will get crushed like a Dole grape. How did we get stuck with such a lemon?????

surfergod, you said a mouth full we are stuck. Stuck so bad I can’t see a way out. The only chance we got is a brokered convention, with an eye on getting a Reagan conservative instead. I can dream, there’s no penalty for that. Yet!

jainphx on February 27, 2008 at 7:35 PM

How does Michelle get so many different city-scapes behind her? Is that on purpose, or does she travel that much?

Personally I’d rather he reminded people that the President does not run the economy. Private enterprise does, even if certain policies (taxes and regulation) can have an effect.

Aristotle on February 27, 2008 at 7:02 PM

Now, now – you know that’s not what he said. He said he doesn’t know as much about economics as he does about foreign policy. You’d prefer he pretended to be Greenspan? Kind of like some other candidates maybe on some other topics?

Besides, if you ask ten different legitimate economics experts the same question about an economic issue or forecast, you’ll likely get ten different mutually contradictory replies. The issue is what premises a candidate or party is working from.

CK MacLeod on February 27, 2008 at 7:54 PM

KP needs to spend some time on military KP (she’d fill out a white apron rather nicely) saying McCain distorted Barry O Belafonte’s position on Al Qaeda is analogous to Bubba Clintons I did not have sex line, these libs are a totally shameless arrogant bunch!

dmann on February 27, 2008 at 7:57 PM

What KP should have said was that Obama saying that he is reserving the right to ‘go back into Iraq’ is to set up for what his administration would actually end up doing, which is staying in Iraq. It’s a baby step towards Obama’s plan to win in Iraq.

And Ron Paul supporters think there is a secret message in KP

wearing red.
Iraq is the preeminent issue in the GOP primaries?

I think that is the assumption because McCain won. His return coincided with the success of the surge, that’s a lot better than saying, well Fred was a paper tiger, Romney petered out, and Huck is crazy so that leaves the old crank.

Spirit of 1776 on February 27, 2008 at 8:02 PM

uh, blockquote error there.

Spirit of 1776 on February 27, 2008 at 8:02 PM

He will reserve the option to go back to Iraq if their is a reason to go back

KP

Please KP can’t be that stupid can she?

Kinda reminds me of WW1 and WW2, just so KP is aware we still have troops in Germany/Japan.

Lets cut and run now from Iraq (and let things fester) and if needed we can send them back in later to correct what we screwed up by pulling out early.

Makes sense to me KP.

F15Mech on February 27, 2008 at 8:06 PM

It is no wonder why AOL is on it’s last legs. EX-AOL VP’s like KP giving advice on how to proceed is a good example.

F15Mech on February 27, 2008 at 8:09 PM

Obama Wrong on the War, he said at the debate the other night that democracy in Kosovo was a good thing, yet democracy in Iraq…?(I guess not so good.. ?)

Chakra Hammer on February 27, 2008 at 8:18 PM

National Security still is highest on my list.

Second is the economy.

Obama and KP still don’t explain why we would ever need to go back to Iraq unless we make the dumb decision of leaving too soon.

desertdweller on February 27, 2008 at 8:21 PM

Obama and KP still don’t explain why we would ever need to go back to Iraq unless we make the dumb decision of leaving too soon.

‘Cause the invasion went so well we can do it anytime. They (D’s) just bail out of the hard stuff.

Spirit of 1776 on February 27, 2008 at 8:29 PM

Iraq and the Second Amendment are going to matter, no matter how much both sides may wish it was otherwise.

Yes, exactly. It would be nice if we could mount Sadr’s head on the Oval Office wall right around October. And when our constitutional rights are threatened, the NRA can gather the votes from both parties. These things would help that open borders idiot quite a bit. Nevertheless, we need to make gains in the House and the Senate to protect us from whichever liberal is elected. That’s for sure.

Zorro on February 27, 2008 at 8:36 PM

And well done Michelle. It’s always good to see you on the tube!

Zorro on February 27, 2008 at 8:37 PM

McCain did not distort what Obama said.

Obama has said that as POTUS he will pull out of Iraq immediately.

Last night Obama said if it was necessary he would send troops back into Iraq to engage Al Queda. But then again, if President, it should’nt be necessary because everyone will love America… at least during Obama’s administration.

Hog Wild on February 27, 2008 at 9:17 PM

Zorro on February 27, 2008 at 8:37 PM

yup, sure was and sure is…for sure.
BUT it sure went by quick.
I was hoping you were to be
allowed a comeback to KP’s ‘stretching the truth’.
She wouldn’t have done that a year ago (way back when AP was really in love), & I dont know if the Clinton’s spanked her a bit after all the HA & MM appearances…or she moved left just because its election time and she wants a job in the White House. ( or both)
.
But I am getting tired of Dems saying any damn thing they want with impunity. ( and its only February)

How will MDS shape the election?

Speakup on February 27, 2008 at 9:41 PM

Michelle should have hammered KP. McCain wasn’t being dishonest. BO said he reserves the right to go back if AQ sets up a base in Iraq. But BO is calling for withdrawal dispite the fact that AQ is in Iraq. It was a dumb thing for him to say and McCain was right to call him on it. Also… Zarqawi was in Iraq before the invasion, setting up his terror netowrk. It’s why we acted preemptively.

I didn’t like McCain much, but a few more comments like that from BO will sway me into supporting Mac. It’s disturbing how the Dems just don’t get it.

Spolitics on February 27, 2008 at 9:54 PM

Michelle rocks! Can’t see enough of her on TV. The campaign is young but McCain isn’t. It’s a long way to Nov. Now the NYT is questioning Mav’s right to run for prez because of his birth place!

wepeople on February 27, 2008 at 10:11 PM

KP doesn’t look like a happy camper. Maybe because her girl hillary is going down in flames or maybe she’s conflicted and she’s just tired of supporting people who go against who she really is.

peacenprosperity on February 27, 2008 at 10:27 PM

It’s going to be hard, too, to pin Obama down in this election on Iraq. He can claim with some credibility that he said before the war “Dont go there”, and many people still agree with him, although in my opinion he was wrong then and is wrong now.

That will be a tough row to hoe.

Jaibones on February 27, 2008 at 11:06 PM

KP: He’s pro-Israel. He said that last night…

Yeah, Jimmy Carter says that he’s pro-Israel, too.

Does Obama declare himself to be pro Israel when he speaks to predominantly Arab and Muslim groups?

aunursa on February 27, 2008 at 11:19 PM

You tell em Michale.

MSGTAS on February 28, 2008 at 12:10 AM

Who coined calling him Messiah? I’m starting to see this a lot on Fox. BTW, the Irony of Obama being edorsed by an antisemite and using the word Messiah is, well it just is, whatever it is.

MirCat on February 28, 2008 at 1:45 AM

Obama is anti-Israel and anti-jew. He does not have the jewish vote(they split between mccain and clinton) and in israel please raise an eyebrow…

sko17 on February 28, 2008 at 7:40 AM

Obama squirms just as much as Hillery when caught doing or saying something stupid. When caught saying something stupid implying that Al Qaeda wasn’t in Iraq he wants to deflect the criticism by saying it’s not his fault they’re there.

TooTall on February 28, 2008 at 11:02 AM

I don’t get why Michelle gives KP a pass on some of the really inane things that KP puts out. Michelle needs to take some Bill O lessons. I think KP has been taking some lessons from Paula Abdul. You kind of know what is coming no matter the subject.

8straight on February 28, 2008 at 11:40 AM

I couldn’t help but notice that McCain’s comments about Al queda in Iraq were off the cuff but Obama had to read his.

dalec on February 28, 2008 at 12:03 PM

Ah… more MM and KP. This is the stuff that made Hot Air great from the very beginning.

I just wish KP wasn’t such a spin-meister on the tough issues the Democrat positions. For example; Obama supports Israel a little bit more than Farrakhan, but that’s not really saying much now is it?

Michele doesn’t try to spin the dumb stuff that Republicans say, and it would be refreshing if KP would follow that example with regard to Democrats.
