What’s wrong with Obama?

Let’s be honest McCain will not win on the economy. He wants to retain the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, can’t remember how many houses he and his wife own and is on the wrong side of the American public on the subject of what rich is.

Obama on the other hand will repeal the tax cuts for the wealthy, stop giving huge incentives to big oil and hopefully will finally catch America up to the rest of the civilised world with free and equal healthcare. This should be a Democratic year but there is still some poll problems for Obama – no doubt helped by ridiculous rumors about his faith – that discredited internet lie pushed by Fox News and other right wing media outlets.

Not to mention the constant re-occurrence of ‘Elitism’. Right because a son of a single mother with a distant dad, living in Indonesia and Hawaii as a child – near slums in Indonesia. That’s elitism alright! Owning Seven houses on the other hand? Well… that’s just a good investment? Real down to earth with working families.

What is Elitism?
1. practice of or belief in rule by an elite.
…and what is an Elite?
1. (often used with a plural verb) the choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons.
2. (used with a plural verb) persons of the highest class: Only the elite were there.

Awful isn’t it!

Oh! Did you hear!? Obama went to Harvard! Elitist! God forbid America has a smart President for the first time in 8 years. That would be disastrous. We remember what happened in 1992 when a smart President was elected. Record surpluses! Horrible thing that! Bush helped create half a trillion dollars of debt – what’s that about Republican’s and the Economy?

Lastly, what’s with the Media Loves Obama stories? The media can’t seem to bring up McCain without mentioning his war record. How’s that? Yes he was incredibly brave and honorable but what does that have to do with an affair with his wife, the economy or the War in Iraq? Nothing.

He may be a war hero – but his policies leave a lot to be desired for a country in the brink of self implosion.
