Video: Obama toasts McCain

posted at 9:40 pm on January 19, 2009 by Allahpundit

From one of three “bipartisan dinners” tonight honoring Maverick, Colin Powell, and Biden. Smart, classy — and totally surreal. Dude, I can practically smell the amnesty bill now.

It’s hard to see their facial expressions in the clip so make sure to click here when you’re done.

He should toast McCain. He was the person most responsible for Obama’s election success.

Tommy_G on January 19, 2009 at 9:43 PM

I prefer the Canadian version of amnesty; no terrorists or free loaders. If you just want to work, apply for a permit, pay your taxes and go home.

chunderroad on January 19, 2009 at 9:43 PM

Ick. What an image to leave us with, tonight of all nights.

Missy on January 19, 2009 at 9:43 PM

Tommy_G on January 19, 2009 at 9:43 PM

absolutely, the democrat helped Obama be president, this should be obvious to anyone who watches!/

wise_man on January 19, 2009 at 9:46 PM

The front page pic for this post makes it look like Obama has McCain’s head on his podium. What a symbolic shot.

aero on January 19, 2009 at 9:46 PM

McCain’s feeling the love and it’s just what he wants.

DerKrieger on January 19, 2009 at 9:47 PM

Remember now, Maverick isn’t going to live long enough for a full Presidency. Thats all I heard why he wasn’t getting votes was because he was too old and Palin was a heartbeat away bla bla bla.

johnnyU on January 19, 2009 at 9:47 PM

Did the Precedent-Elect rerun his “Dishonorable” ad about McCain? That was a cute on … just heated rhetoric, as he says now. Oh, okay.

progressoverpeace on January 19, 2009 at 9:47 PM

how dare McCain stand there and smile, like every good conservative, he’s supposed to grab the nearest, heaviest thing he can and throw it at his head, amirite?????/

McCain Toast. Obama, now his bread and butter.

For McCain the race was never really about beating the Left as much as it was about beating the Right.

Clink.

Bruno Strozek on January 19, 2009 at 9:48 PM

RINO

Somehow, either way, it wouldn’t have mattered who won.
We still would be going down the wrong road.
We’ll just get there sooner.

Kini on January 19, 2009 at 9:49 PM

I feel the same way about McCain that the Reagan supporters must have felt about Ford back in 1976. I can’t believe I defended this guy.

Go away, Maverick!

Jim62sch on January 19, 2009 at 9:53 PM

LOL NOW the Obamessiah admits that John McCain isn’t George Bush’s clone. Gee thanks Barry. Somehow I doubt you would have won the Nutroots support if you said upfront that you were going to retain Bush’s Defense Secretary.

Any way the GOP can get rid of this traitor. Give him to the Dems, put him out to pasture or bury him.

I will never–EVER–forgive McCain for losing the election and allowing the “keys to the country” to be given to a clueless, day-dreaming Marxist and confirmed America-hating Leftist who gets off to mass adoration like Nobama.

wise_man on January 19, 2009 at 10:00 PM

McCain is plenty conservative enough. More so than Bush, I’d say.

Senators do have to work together from time to time. Get over it.

Classy move by Obama.

Did you hear Canada barred Bill Ayres from entry? Wow, I guess that Harper didn’t get the message whatever the Messiah wants, the Messiah gets. By the way, any bet that Obama is going to hold a dinner for Sarah to celebrate her claim that ‘he was palling around with an unrepentant domstic terrorist.’

therightwinger on January 19, 2009 at 10:03 PM

not so. we need a 1976 to get a 1980. and we need to do this every single time until we get reagan. Any less than 100% conservative will not do and we need to harp on the negatives and hope to turn off as many voters so the democrat wins! that’s the true path to conservatism!!!

Bush wasn’t good enough, so it should have been Al Gore. How great would have that been with al gore’s response to 9/11 by going to the uN and asking forgiveness because we deserved to be attackes.

and Bush wasn’t good enough again and we needed John Kerry to get a better conservative again. And we would have removed all troops from Iraq and ban all harsh interrogation, and how would Iraq and the US look after 4 years of this?

but at least these good conservatives got their way and now we have obama to – by magic – we’ll get a 100% conservative in 4 short years, dont you get it man?/

(just channeling my inner moonbat conservative)

No one would expect that at all. He’s in his comfort zone now.

One would only expect vile behavior from McCain when in the presence of conservatives.

Equal, I do not think so.

O Barak (Lawrence Tribe for SCOTUS, Biden for Veep).
O McCain (A Republican for SCOTUS, Palin for Veep).

There was definitely a difference.

Bullshiite. Mac is standing up there like a smiling dimwit after recently getting his butt handed to him by a guy who is now showering him with love.

If ol’ John had any self respect, he would have politely declined the offer to appear, but his ego got the better of him and he wants his old job of “Maverick!” back in the worst way. What better manner to accomplish that than to appear next to a guy who smeared him for months on end.

wise_man on January 19, 2009 at 10:14 PM

Not rewriting anything. I voted for McCain. I said he sucked, which he did, on everything from amnesty to CFR to global warming to all of the ways he “reached across the aisle”, like a good RINO should. I said Palin was great, which she was, but unfortunately not great enough to overcome his horrible bungling of the bailout situation.

McCain was the problem, and I was no part of it, except in giving my vote to him. No solution was going help that loser, and certainly not dismissing all his critics as Obama supporters, or insulting those who questioned him, echoing his own temper and sentiments to conservatives. McCain was the problem, and he remains a problem to this day. Your unending attacks on those who dislike his RINO ways are not part of any solution.

Bad try to re-write my history there. Try again.

Oh yes. Creating keystone bills of his career with Russ Feingold, Ted Kennedy, and chumming it up with Obama aren’t evidence of democratic leanings at all. Nor this, nor this.

Dude, I can practically smell the amnesty bill now.

Gringo, you had best finally believe me that it is indeed time for you to aprenda el espanol. In another year the McCain/Kennedy/Feingold Comprehensive Immigration and Fairness Doctrine bill will be signed by el Presidente Obama and Hotair will have to display in el espanol as well as english so you need to be prepared if you do not want to be sent to la carcel.

You remember that when the SCOTUS gets a few new judges in the mold of Ginsburg, helped along by malleable Republicans who didn’t want to jeopardize their pork barrels by appearing too intransigent against the DFL.

The GOP is caving on every effing front there is, what we need right now is someone to finally stand and bellow “No further!”

Just because you called me a liar didn’t make what I pointed out any more than questioning his politics, nor did it make what I linked and provided sources for lies.

However, the questions did drive you to the brink of foaming, insulting rage. I think it said a lot about what you yourself saw but refused to acknowledge. Hindsight makes a difference, I know, but the point stands.

You mean the guy who differed from Reagan in all the substantive, conservative ways, the guy who tried to deal with the issues by reaching across the aisle to forge bipartisan bonds of problem-solving fellowship with the DFL?

Just want to make sure you understand this isn’t 1980 anymore.

It’s your party now, have at it. I will find a home somewhere else. Hell if I am going to capitulate on some of my convictions since that is the “winning” strategy, maybe I should just sign up Libertarian and fire one up.

Loss of senate and house seats and the WH. Should have accepted the bill when it was in a reasonable form. The hyssterical reactions about the evil Hispanic hordes from the extremists that went unchecked by the more responsible GOP members has come home to roost.
But at least people held to their principles….

Why is it that no one ascribes some of the blame for the loss to Palin? I seem to remember the “She will drag his old ass across the finish line whether he wants it or not..”

Mr. Joe on January 19, 2009 at 10:11 PM

You assume too much. Do you really think McCain was ever going to to go toe to toe with the solid blue congress over SCOTUS? Hardly. His entire M.O. was bland “bipartisanship”.

The best we could have hoped for under McCain would be another Kennedy or a squishy O’Conner, though it’s not outside the realm of possibilities that, out of “respect” for his opposition (or as a trade to push through some kind of odious speech legislation), he’d give us a Ginsberg.

Lehosh on January 20, 2009 at 7:52 AM

This is all so depressing. Can’t turn the TV on, won’t open a newspaper, even Rush says he’ll run the inauguration- I wouldn’t mind hearing the speech for a historical perspective, but I’m for damn sure not going to listen to the adulation, (including McCain’s) and watch the adoring throngs as they push through for a glimpse of the man who’s more than likely going to destroy America.

Fellow conservative douchebags? I’d go so far as to say you’re a douchebag, but don’t put me in there. McCain has deserved scorn since he started his vendetta on Bush and the party after losing the 2000 nomination. He should have been thrown out of the party after the amnesty bill.

wise_man on January 19, 2009 at 10:10 PM

Ok, let’s play like children. Let’s play ‘if’. If only conservatives had backed McCain, he would have won. Bullsh*t. Weren’t you one of the ‘stfu and vote McCain’ folks, whizzman? The ‘it’s our party now, we don’t need you anymore’ crowd? See, unlike you, I have a memory longer than 10 minutes. I remember the heady days after the primary where the McCain freaks couldn’t wait to throw the conservatives out the door. As summer went on, and McCain’s campaign started to resemble the great sponge migration of 1909, realization crept in. And then Palin was picked. And suddenly, it’s like we had a candidate. You want to play ‘if’ you fracking infant, why don’t you try this one? If only we had an older, more experienced candidate than Palin, who was conservative, think of the power of that campaign. Instead of bashing people who voted for McCain reluctantly, we should bashing people that nominated him in the first place. Take his history of backstabbing out of it: he’s a senator, elistist mumbling, uninspiring old man. He fit every parody the left had of Republicans, even though he had more in common with them. You guys fell for media hype; McCain could reach across the aisle and draw from both sides. No. He just bashed and turned on his own party on big issues and got applauded by the opposition. You nominated a bad candidate. Go back in time and suck on that.

you did more than just question him. and you know that

wise_man on January 19, 2009 at 10:21 PM

Dude, I didn’t vote for McCain, and I did tons more than question him. I wrote two humorous songs bashing him; I think I insulted him more creatively than anyone else on this board. Does that mean I can take credit for him cratering as badly as he did? Wow. What power I have. Remember, that’s 2 ‘l’s in Nelly, moron.
Seriously, as much as I would love the credit for McCAin’s fall, it belongs to nobody but him. He was a bad candidate, who ran an uninspiring bad campaign. You can froth and spit at people who question him, but you should remember one thing: campaigns are about persuasion, not kneejerk, lockstep, line up behind the jefe and show your support. Grow up, whizzman, or find another hobby. I’m sure there’s a 3rd world country looking for foam mouthed zealots to break into peoples houses and beat them death for not voting the right way.

that’s all you are capable of.

Shocker.

They were indistinguishable during the campaign. The ballot was thus:

Choose one:

O <- Six
O <- Half a dozen

and this is a lie. You present this as fact, and it’s not. It’s not even an opinion. If you said ‘I don’t like McCain’ then that would be an opinion, and you’re entitled to it. If you said ‘I wish that a more conservative wont he republican primary’ then that would also be an opinion, and it’s one that I share. But if you claim that McCain is the same as Obama, that is a lie. And even as an opinion, it is incorrect, when you use the facts to check this comment, the results are this:

For those who see no difference between McCain and the two Democrats, this serves as a reminder that while McCain drifts to the middle on some issues, a large chasm exists between the nominees that will face off in November.

He’s speaking to you.

If you havent ever read the page I linked here, maybe you should. It might enlighten you to the truth, and you wouldn’t lie as much as you do.

I understand why you did what you did these past months, pretty much for a solid year. Obama and his supporters would look at your comments and be delighted that someone from the inside of a conservative page argued against the person who won the republican nomination. And while the democrat PUMA’s failed to move their hurt feelings at Hillary’s loss to punish Obama and the democrat party, you and the others here succeeded. You succeeded in making sure that McCain was punished. You lied that he was exactly the same as Obama. You wanted a 1976 to get a 1980 – as if this would happen by magic! And you also advocated voting for the constitution party, as a protest vote against McCain. As well as claiming that Bob Barr would get at least 10% of the national vote on election day. Anything to give people a reason not to vote for McCain.

And you and the others here who share your mental illness will continue to poison the well here with your insanity, and acting like children. Thank God that there are a few adults here who aren’t swayed by your propaganda.

Good God, another McCain thread, another wise_man vs. the world argument. Give it a rest man. You know full well that most of the commenters here do not like McCain.

You are Exhibit A when I explain to others why they should avoid commenting on this site.

I am not asking them to love McCain. I never have. Just don’t lie about him. And don’t try to re-write history as to the actions that happened here that contributed to Obama being elected.
