I have never heard so many normally apolitical people express so much fear about the impending "socialism" and yet when asked about specifically what they are afraid of be so totally clueless. And this is in firmly blue state California, albeit in red-state-like-South-Orange-County.

I wish Barack would go on the offensive more........the scare tactics and bullshit rhetoric (combined with a sadly lacking and misinformed/badly educated general public) are definitely making inroads.

PALIN: Oh, I guess just people who think that they're better than anyone else. And-- John McCain and I are so committed to serving every American. Hard-working, middle-class Americans who are so desiring of this economy getting put back on the right track. And winning these wars. And America's starting to reach her potential. And that is opportunity and hope provided everyone equally. So anyone who thinks that they are-- I guess-- better than anyone else, that's-- that's my definition of elitism.
You know my definition of elitism?

From the old Palin thread (this really belongs here), purpleoscar posted this from McCain's spending plan:

Quote:
The McCain administration would reserve all savings from victory in the Iraq and Afghanistan operations in the fight against Islamic extremists for reducing the deficit. Since all their costs were financed with deficit spending, all their savings must go to deficit reduction.
Has anyone heard a load of shit like this before?

Savings from victory? What the hell does that mean?

Scott McClellan Endorses Obama

Quote:
Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan, who angered many Republicans earlier this year with a memoir criticizing President Bush, said today that he's voting for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

McClellan told CNN that Obama's message "is very similar to the one that Governor Bush ran on in 2000," apparently referring to the current president's early pitch as a reformer and a moderate.

"From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has the best chance for changing the way Washington works and getting things done and I will be voting for Barack Obama," McClellan said during the interview, which was taped for the Saturday broadcast of a new CNN show, "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News."

McClellan's endorsement marks the latest prominent Republican to defect to Obama. Former secretary of state Colin Powell last Sunday threw his endorsement behind the Illinois senator while sharply criticizing the campaign tactics of GOP candidate John McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

The funny thing about their ‘elite’ definition is that they’re the only ones actually talking down to and dismissing a massive part of the country by calling them not ‘real’ Americans. I’m yet to see Obama or Biden refer to McCain/Palin supporters at all (aside from addressing the tone of their rallies when asked about it), let alone in a negative way, nor have I heard or read of them claiming their supporters or base are better than McCain/Palins, yet McCain/Palin do it all the time. It’s seems to be about 30% of their total rallying cry. I think it’s hilarious that their supporters fall for that shit hook, line and sinker.

C'mon now. In all fairness, Cheney and Haliburton are already at step 3.
