Leadership we can believe in.

lorien1973 on September 30, 2008 at 10:22 PM

oh wait a sec…I thought he was “the healer and lightbringer”….

he just ceded the bi-partisan crown so he must think he’s been elected.

sven10077 on September 30, 2008 at 10:23 PM

He’s up in the polls. I need to buy some magic markers for my “The End Is Near” sign I’ll be making soon.

Isn’t that like the entire thing his campaign is built on?! How are we not destroying this idiot?

Kind of a commercial waiting to be made here.

tired of the bickering in washington?

Elect a leader who has a history of working with both republicans and democrats

or elect Obama, who admits he can’t work with republicans.

And lorien1973 writes yet another fantastic ad for McCain.

Wonder why the campaign never takes me up on my ideas. Very frustrating :P

lorien1973 on September 30, 2008 at 10:26 PM

Right Barry, and you wouldn’t helped with those 12 more of the Dems you needed?

But what about the bipartisanship!? Won’t someone pleeease think of the bipartisanship?!

jimmy the notable on September 30, 2008 at 10:28 PM

“I don’t think me calling House Republican members would have been that helpful, I tend not to be that persuasive on that side of the aisle.”

But calling a few Democrats and convincing them to go along for the ride would have been “helpful.”

Please somebody wake me up and tell me that it is all a bad dream that we actually have to choose between McCain and this guy!

That’s a CHANGE?

Palin is going to get blown out. McCain cannot win any debate on the economy. McCain refuses to run an ad that reveals Obama for who he is. We’re going to lose.

It’s time to shift emphasis to resisting Obamite socialism.

indythinker on September 30, 2008 at 10:30 PM

I guess he really can’t reach that far across the aisle…

That, and he is advertising here on hotair?

No, really. There is an Obama ad telling me to register so I can vote for him right above the hot links. Weird.

jdoubleu on September 30, 2008 at 10:33 PM

The “Uniter” is a divider, jerk, and coward. Of course the MSM will avoid that quote and not take it against Obama.

jencab on September 30, 2008 at 10:33 PM

Good grief, he is two seconds off of taking credit for the development of the wheel. And if his claiming to be thick as thieves with Sec. Paulson is suppose to make me jump on board he is sadly mistaken.

Cindy Munford on September 30, 2008 at 10:34 PM

Wow. This guy is an idiot. Does he even know who his opponent is? IF John McCain and his advisors have any clue what-so-ever they will be all over this comment blasting it across every TV channel. Accompany that with nice things Bill and Hill say about John McCain. Why do I suspect this is the last time I’m going to hear this sentence?

Zetterson on September 30, 2008 at 10:35 PM

I’d love for Obambi to ask a Conservative member of Congress to help him out with the bill…and then the Conservative member of Congress goes all Hannibal Lecter and Chuck Norris combined on his smarmy little haid!!!

AubieJon on September 30, 2008 at 10:36 PM

That was the only honest thing to come out of his mouth in this campaign.

Um, has OBAMA ever TRIED?

How would he know? McCain HAS been persuasive to the other side.

OBAMA. NOT READY TO LEAD

originalpechanga on September 30, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Teleprompter’s demands must not have been met! I thought he could heal the earth and make the seas go down? I thought he had all this experience that made him qualified to be on the Telle Tubbies and stuff! He cannot reach across an aisle? Oh, now he is a victim of the aisle!

Light worker we CANNOT believe in!

Man those little kiddies singing and their parents are going to need some counseling! LOL! Like serious counseling! Because he cannot change the world or rearrange those in the House. Well at least until January. They will be sold off the the gulags or shot by the little kiddies firing squad!

freeus on September 30, 2008 at 10:37 PM

I haven’t gone out of my way to try to take credit for this.

What a stinking liar. I watched him speak today, & all he did was take credit when it wasn’t due.
“I called for this, & I demanded that, & I made sure of this”, etc, when lots of people were saying the same things.

Why resist? We lost. Obviously it’s a better system. We can’t win. We’ll just get blown out. I was just as teary-eyed in 2004 when W. couldn’t win any debate on the war and the young trial attorney was going to crush the old guy.

CP on September 30, 2008 at 10:46 PM

Maybe instead of trying to pick up some stock on the cheap, MM might ought to be focusing her ire on the state of Ohio allowing people to start voting now. I mean come on. That’s ridiculous. Where are the conservatives with a spine to stop this? Some much can happen to change opinions between now and election day. 14 out, okay but 36 days out? That’s insane. McCain’s going to lose because of tricks like this. OH is a huge swing state and all this early voting can only help democrats as it’s less possibility of being rained out. 36 days less. Get back to the politics that matter MM!

pc on September 30, 2008 at 10:46 PM

I was under the impression that Obiffy was good at getting people with different views together in a room and finding common cause?

I can’t remember where I heard that.

lorien1973 on September 30, 2008 at 10:26 PM

Well, Obama is admitting that he can’t cross the aisle and get Republicans to agree with liberal policies. Keep in mind though that when McCain crosses the aisle, he usually ends up bringing Republicans along to agree with the Democrats’ liberal policies.

Do either McCain or Obama have any track record of getting the opposing Party to agree with their polices? I don’t believe either of them do. Has McCain ever gotten liberal Democrats to agree to any conservative Republican legislation? McCain has had some success working with Democrats on liberal Democrat policy, but, like Obama, I don’t think he has had any persuasive effect on getting any Democrats to agree to conservative Republican policy.

However, if someone can provide an example of McCain doing so, I’ll admit my error here.

Yeah I agree, that’s not really the point though. If McCain is elected, that’s a bridge we can cross later.

Obama, in the debate said: I only have a liberal voting record becuase I oppose Bush’s policies.

Here he says he cannot work with republicans.

Which is it? People want the bickering in washington to stop. Which can deliver? It’s a great McCain ad.

McCain could do very well if he made a bunch of ads saying something like:

If the financial crisis taught us anything, it’s that Washington does not function.

As a senator, I’ve worked with republicans and democrats to get important bills passed that help all americans.

Obama says he cannot work with republicans.

Want the senseless bickering to end in Washington? Vote for McCain.

I don’t want to work with democrats either. But the average person is more moderate than I am, and I accept that.

lorien1973 on September 30, 2008 at 10:52 PM

Well, I don’t care about the bickering in Washington, so long as they don’t decide to work together to pass bad policy. I don’t want bipartisanship and I don’t want compromise and I don’t want ‘crossing the aisle’ if it means passing bad policy. I want people who stand up for what they believe in. I want the Democrats to stand up for their socialist policies and try to convince the opposing side and the American people why they are right and I want the Republicans to stand up for their mostly conservative policies and try to convince the opposing side and the American people why they are right.

What I do *not* want is people sacrificing their principles for the sake of “bipartisanship” and passing crappy policy. There is nothing wrong with gridlock in Washington if it is stopping Congress from putting forth more crappy legislation on the nation.

Bipartisanship does not impress me in the least. It usually means that one is sacrificing their principles. Show me someone who will fight to the end for what is right, and then I will be impressed.

But, like most everything else, I am pretty much in the small minority in this way of thinking.

for better or worse CFR, McCain’s done it at least once…bambi nonce.

sven10077 on September 30, 2008 at 10:52 PM

I don’t believe many Republican-voters or conservatives consider CFR to be a good thing. I’m looking for something McCain has done where he got Democrats on board with a clearly conservative piece of legislation. Did he bring Democrats on board with any legislation related to the “surge” or the war supplemental bills? That would be a success if he did. How about that G.I. Bill? Did he work with them to amend theirs to be more like his alternative? That would be another success if he did so.

Michael in MI on September 30, 2008 at 11:01 PM

lorien1973 on September 30, 2008 at 11:02 PM

Well, the average person believed the war was lost, the surge was not a success, Bush Lied! and that global warming is a threat. Does this mean we should have passed legislation to affect change for these issues? I don’t think so. I want my elected leaders to pander to the facts and the truth and work on getting the average person to understand the facts and the truth. What I do not want is my elected leaders pandering for votes.

But, again, I understand I am in the minorty with this way of thinking about government.

Also, I think there is a big difference between stopping all the stupid dirty politics and smear campaigns and focusing on fiercly debating differences in policy and political ideology and… just deciding to play nice for the sake of playing nice and completely capitulating on one’s principles and going along with the opposing party’s crappy legislation.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with fierce debate of policy and political ideology. What is wrong with Washington is all the petty crap and smear campaigns and lies and mistruths and misinformation, trying to take advantage of the emotion and ignorance of the American public. *That* needs to stop. But the fierce debate and gridlock, carry on.

Michael in MI on September 30, 2008 at 11:09 PM

I would suggest that there hasn’t been real debate in Washington for decades. Real debate is a good thing as is standing on principles rising out of a political ideology. Unfortunately, we don’t do any of that stuff anymore. It’s all about partisanship including Pelosi telling Democrats in close races that they could vote against the bail out scheme so that they could get re-elected.

Of course, you can find this kind of partisanship back to the first term of George Washington. The difference in the past times was that in situations like the collapsing economy or war- both parties spoke with one voice to do what was right for the nation. These days we have Democrats begrudging troops in combat funding for basic equipment because the Dems constituents are anti-war. That’s more than wrong. It violates the Congressional oath of office and there should be a mass impeachment to get rid of all the traitors. Failing that this is the election to throw all the bums out of office and start from scratch.

This is a classic example of McCain’s debate line, “Senator Obama is the most liberal Senator in the Senate. It’s pretty hard to work w/the other side when you are that far left.” Or something like that. Juxtapose that w/this comment and he is owned!

I still have no idea why the McCain campaign would agree to debate with moderators from PBS and NBC…hello, NBC. To be fair, I thought Lehrer was quite good. Ifill will not be able to contain herself I assure you. It may be the gift McCain-Palin needs…and most assuredly will get.

John McCain, American hero and patriot, has a long record of working across the aisle to put country first. He has nothing to prove.

Oslime-a, radical white hating terrorist sympathizer, has no real record of bi-partisan cooperation. He has everything to prove. Especially when he has voted the most liberal line of any senator.

Gosh, you’re smart.
Do you know how smart you are?

Ifill will not be able to contain herself I assure you. It may be the gift McCain-Palin needs…and most assuredly will get.

I agree. Michelle Malkin and Drudge both have Ifill as their leads, and comments are 100 percent hostile. I think if Ifill is fair, no harm no foul, but if she is obviously biased against Palin it could mean a massive backlash.

Palin is going to get blown out. McCain cannot win any debate on the economy. McCain refuses to run an ad that reveals Obama for who he is. We’re going to lose.

It’s time to shift emphasis to resisting Obamite socialism.

Indy, give AP’s rose colored glasses back and nobody gets hurt.

Yeah. It was total clinton hate. Nothing more. He loves Palin and is in the tank for McCain.

He linked that creepy Obama kids video perfectly.

Indy is right though. Until McCain starts kicking Obama in the nuts and attacks Congress; he won’t win.

And since he won’t – because he loves that bipartisan stuff – he won’t win.

Yikes. The transcript of that interview sure made Obama look good. I wish I was being snarky saying that, but I’m not. His responses for the most part were right on target, the only misstep being the pandering to the state he happened to be in (Nevada).

McCain needs to at least match Obama in resonating with the people on this thing. Obama is late getting to the party, so there’s some capital to be gained, but we sure can’t afford to lose any.

Where is the video?

I wanna see video of this one..

BHO isn’t persuasive on any side of the aisle. He only appeals to those who hate the US, as it has until now, and no persuading is needed for them to recognize that he dislikes the idea of the United States as much as they do.

As to anything that requires intelligence, BHO is just unarmed for those battles.

ROFLMFAO! You made hot chocolate come out of my nose!

Quite a trick, considering they were drinking a beer at the time.

“Sen. Obama has the most liberal voting record in the US Senate,” McCain said at the first debate. “It is hard to reach across the aisle from that far to the left.”

Luckily for Obama, all the Senate Obamacans — Chuck Hagel — sit close to him in the RINO section.

Terrie on September 30, 2008 at 11:58 PM

Even a RINO would stampede a Jack*ss in a Che t-shirt along with the bull Elephants! >:D

Was that a reference to the funny sound a dud kernel makes when it tries to pop but doesn’t?

No, but a little butterscotch schnapps in hot chocolate is heavenly!
