Townhall voter to McCain: “I’m mad! I’m really mad!”

posted at 3:50 pm on October 9, 2008 by Allahpundit

Fox cut away at the end right before the next questioner pressed McCain on Obama’s associations. Read Ben Smith to see how that went; the boss is underwhelmed. I watched a bit from earlier in the townhall while cutting the clip and what McCain says here is true — people were yelling about ACORN during every pause. He finally gratifies them with a little outrage near the end.

Note his preface to those comments, though: “We’ve got to act together because all of us are Americans first.” I get the sense Maverick’s not entirely thrilled with the tone these events have taken. As I write this, the Dow’s down 650 and counting.

74% of CEOs Believe Obama Would Be Disastrous for the Nation

Despite the answer, our supposedly impartial press seem totally disinterested in Chief Executive magazine’s just-released survey [1] which found some CEOs worried that if implemented “[Obama's] programs would bankrupt the country within three years” (emphasis added, h/t Jazz from Hell [2], photo courtesy Time.com):

Chief Executive magazine’s most recent polling of 751 CEOs shows that GOP presidential candidate John McCain is the preferred choice for CEOs. According to the poll, which is featured on the cover of Chief Executive’s most recent issue, by a four-to-one margin, CEOs support Senator John McCain over Senator Barack Obama. Moreover, 74 percent of the executives say they fear that an Obama presidency would be disastrous for the country.

“The stakes for this presidential election are higher than they’ve ever been in recent memory,” said Edward M. Kopko, CEO and Publisher of Chief Executive magazine. “We’ve been experiencing consecutive job losses for nine months now. There’s no doubt that reviving the job market will be a top priority for the incoming president. And job creating CEOs repeatedly tell us that McCain’s policies are far more conducive to a more positive employment environment than Obama’s.” [...]

“I’m not terribly excited about McCain being president, but I’m sure that Obama, if elected, will have a negative impact on business and the economy,” said one CEO voicing his lack of enthusiasm for either candidate, but particularly Obama.

In expressing their rejection of Senator Obama, some CEOs who responded to the survey went as far as to say that “some of his programs would bankrupt the country within three years, if implemented.” In fact, the poll highlights that Obama’s tax policies, which scored the lowest grade in the poll, are particularly unpopular among CEOs.

Despite the poll’s findings, from what I can tell, even though this study was disseminated by [3] PRNewswire, it has garnered very little mainstream media attention.

Think that would be the case if these business leaders were so negative about McCain’s economic policies?

No, I don’t either!

This guy represents the feelings of almost everyone I know. I’ve never seen people as angry as they are now. McCain needs to get it together. His “my friends” “reach across the aisle” Senate speak has worn thin.. We need him to go after the enemy and they are his friends on the other side of the aisle.

Socialism…like supporting the bailout and offering up a hollow government mortgage buyout plan? That kind of socialism?

cornfedbubba on October 9, 2008 at 3:58 PM

This is ridiculous. McCain has put himself in the position where he’s either got to jump in and criticize Obama for all of this himself, or risk being called out as a coward in the final debate. McCain’s biggest remaining major plus his courage and integrity, and both Obama and Biden are using this issue to claim, somewhat credibly, that he’s a two-faced chicken.

Meanwhile, Obama has Reid, Pelosi, Frank, and Dodd on his side.

This would be a good time for Hillary and Bill to come out and say that Hillary’s opposition research never had the time to unearth the detail on Ayers, Acorn, and the New Party and, as we all know, the media was no help. So, for the good of the country, they’re voting for McCain.

That could conceivably sent Obama to a political gulag…forever.

That is good! That means “We the People” are finally standing up and screaming at our leaders to do what is right.

McCain has 2 choices:

1. sit back and play “lets all get along”

or

2. Fight back against the Democrats. Which is the right way to go. As a Republican, I am tired of my party trying to play nice and not fighting back.

If you dont like it McCain, then tough crap. Being peacemaker comes only after you have obliterated the other side and beat them into submission. Do it or lose the election.

I’ll Believe McCain Is Serious When He Makes THIS Campaign Promise

Outside of the people who benefited from these sub-prime mortgages [including politicians] Americans are absolutely enraged over this latest trillion dollar hosing given them by Congress in the form of the Fannie/Freddie bailout.

McCain should immediately pledge to the American people if they will elect him President, his first order of business will be to implement a full and thorough investigation of the entire Fannie/Freddie fiasco – with names named, responsibility assigned, and letting the chips fall where they may.

…And if anybody is found to be criminally responsible, including criminal negligence, every such person will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law – no exceptions. Barney F. for example, in saying “we should “roll the dice” with Fannie because it’s doing such a fine job in giving homes to people who can’t afford them – that’s probably criminal negligence, especially since made after Fannie had to re-state its financials due to mind boggling misstatements. And Chris Dodd [Mario’s friend]? He has lots of potential criminal liability.

Pelosi and Reid? – They’ll both walk with insanity pleas. And who could challenge them?

And McCain says he will work with everybody who wants to clean the trash out of Washington, DC because it’s true. There are democrats out there who are horrified by Obama. Here’s proof:

If you can’t do the “Real Democrats” Ohio jaunt (but you still will want to donate to help our McCain Democrats make their Ohio campaign a success), you East Coasters can’t pass up joining Harriet Christian Saturday and every weekend until November. Harriet e-mailed me about a campaign blitz in Pennsylvania this Saturday. E-mail Harriet at hchristian@infnyc.com to CONFIRM, hopefully by mid-afternoon Thursday.

In fact, those people are much less likely to actually do something to help McCain/Palin win this election than the lot of you who want to sit here and bash the man.

Bah, much more likely to help him; much less likely to bash him

Dow Jones is going Down because the markets anticipate Obama as president. That is the only reason.

Please God, let there be a USA for Sarah to lead in 2012.
Vatican Watcher on October 9, 2008 at 4:13 PM

Oh friggin’ relax, of course there will be a USA in 2012.

It won’t resemble the USA of right now, it will be known by some other term (The Obama Co-Prosperity Sphere or something like that) and you will be imprisoned in a reeducation camp somewhere anyway.

So relax.

I’ll bring some tar but we’ll still need plenty of feathers and rails.

We’ll bring along Funky Chicken.

DRUDGE:

Obama purchases half hour of primetime on CBS, also in talks with FOX, NBC… DEVELOPING…

Get your hip boots and shovel ready, Barry didn’t know a thing about Ayers, Rezko, or Wright – we should be talking about how Republican deregulation caused the mortgage meltdown. :rolleyes:

I finally got the thing to work.

Lorien makes it on tv.

Dude, I’m not that old!

This sucked. Is this when McCain named names? The guy was pissed about democrats-socialists and McCain responds that he’ll work with them? WTF?

Please tell me there is a better clip somewhere. Please.

Maybe, but there are plenty of us who are mad.

I’m going to get a crack at it on Monday’s rally. I might just get a chant started along the lines of stand and fight.

He needs to, or we are all screwed.

Its about time we got mad at the socialist/Communist Democrats, they have been pushing a socialistic agenda for literally over a hundred years now.

He pretty much did that today. Same place, in answer to an actually cogent question from a woman real estate agent.

It’s a great exchange, as the questioner comes across strong (and not crazy) and so does McCain.

I would think pundits who want republicans to look good would highlight that clip.

funky chicken on October 9, 2008 at 4:19 PM

I haven’t watched this video yet, but my Mom did and said McCain was fired up today. He called out Dodd and Frank and said there would be more named later. I heard that myself. That doesn’t sound like he’s being dragged against his will.
