Obama Plays Sleazy Politics — Then Lies About It (Again) by American Elephant

For a man who so frequently claims he wants to rise above dirty politics, Barack Obama sure peddles an awful lot of sleaze and tells an awful lot of lies. For all his lofty rhetoric, it turns out he’s nothing more than a typical Chicago-style dirty, sleazy politician.

Obama’s sleaze du jour:

Yesterday in Missouri, Obama predicted McCain and the GOP would use racially-tinged attacks against him.

“What they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

An Obama spokesman denied that the line about “dollar bills” was related to the Democrat’s race.

Nor, is the first time he’s played the race card, and claimed “racist” Republicans were going to try to make people afraid of him because he is black. Of course, without any evidence whatsoever. Here he is from last month:

“We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid.

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?

But do any of the lemmings in his audience stop and ask for evidence of any racist attacks from Republicans? Of course not, they are brainwashed beyond repair. Indeed, the Obama camp has the audacity to lie, and say Obama was never referring to race:

“Barack Obama in no way believes that the McCain campaign is using race as an issue, but he does believe they’re using the same old low-road politics to distract voters from the real issues in this campaign, and those are the issues he’ll continue to talk about.”

Talk about projection!

The same way Obama said he couldn’t visit the troops in Germany because he didn’t think it was appropriate on a campaign trip, when the real reason is because the press wouldnt have been allowed to photograph him visiting the troops. And the same way he broke his promise to use public financing for his campaign and then blamed it on Republicans.

Its becoming quite clear that Obama is a compulsive liar.

Hot Air has the video and the latest pathetic lies from the Obama camp here.

And of course Obama and the Democrat party’s entire existence is based in creating fear… Republicans want to take away your social security! Republicans want to destroy the environment! Republicans are racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic bigots! Republicans are warmongers! Republicans want to reinstate the draft! Republicans want to deny veterans benefits! Republicans want to take your money and give it to the rich! If you don’t vote for Democrats the seas will rise, the Earth will boil, all the animals will die, and probably all the people too! and on and on and on… none of which has any basis in reality whatsoever, yet they pump out the propaganda like nobody’s business.

And when Republicans actually talk about real dangers, like, say, terrorists flying planes into buildings, Iran getting the nuclear bomb they are working tirelessly for, or increased taxation harming the economy as it always does, Obama and the Democrats have the gall to accuse Republicans of “playing on your fears.”

Perhaps so. I suppose all politics is based in fear to some degree —  but unlike Democrats, Mr. Chicagobama, Republicans address fears that are based in reality.

Great Post. Valid Points.

Unfortunately, the only people who agree with you already know he’s a slimeball. His followers will never see the light because they believe Obama’s marketing campaign.

Obama Goes to Washington

What hasn’t seen the light of day is a quote from Sen. Obama in February of 2007. When asked if his race would be an issue, he said that the people that wouldn’t vote for him because of his race…likely wouldn’t share his political views. Essentially, if you’re a racist, you must be a Republican. That was the moment I lost any respect for him.

When all else fails, play the good ol’ race card! Then he says “who me?” when McCain called him on it.

Hi Effalants. Has anyone ever thought that when Barack Obama first spoke at the Democratic Convention in 2004 that he didn’t have a marketing campaign?

And off-subject, has anyone ever told you that your blog falls into the category I call “unreadable blogs” and that you could probably increase your readership by putting black letters on a white (or at least, light) background? These progressive color schemes are bad for us all. Just call me a “conservative,” but I like to see what I read. 🙂 Check my blog for readability. This has nothing to do with content.

Thanks for the feedback Helen. You are absolutely right that light type on a dark background is harder to read, so you might be happy to learn I am already looking into several different options for changing to a light background. Here is one exxample.

Unfortunatley, they all involve learning how to do CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) in order to get the look and functionality that I want, as well as changing all of our graphics, since all the ones we currently have are made for our current dark back-ground. And those are both difficult and time consuming tasks — especially learning CSS — so I can’t promise it will happen anytime soon. In the meantime, we hope you will forgive our flaws and keep reading, however difficult that may be.

(As a “band-Aid” solution, if it really bothers you, you could highlight the text before reading it, that will invert the colors of the type and background)

As for Obama, with all due respect, the man has never been without a marketing campaign. When he was in the Illinois legislature, he was campaigning for Senate, as soon as he hit the Senate he began campaigning for president, and before he even gets the official nomination, let alone elected as president, he is already campaigning for the role of god. 🙂

Hi AE, The sample at “here” is extremely attractive. I think white on black is dramatic and artistic but unreadable. Good luck with the transition.

Gentle Cricket,

Thank you for that quote. I hadn’t even seen it before! How typical of the left, and how delusional.


Thanks much, but like I said, don’t hold your breath. learning CSS is gonna take a good while.
