Still Fighting For You
Last night John McCain let the people of this great nation know that he still intends to fight the good fight. He said he would defend America against the class warfare that Obama and the Democratic Party has embraced throughout this election cycle. McCain also reminded Barack Obama that he is not George Bush:
"Senator Obama, I am not President Bush," snapped Mr. McCain, the clear underdog in polls, in one of many lively volleys. "If you wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago. "I'm going to give a new direction to this economy in this country."
McCain also took the opportunity to bring up Obama's associations with characters and organizations that bring into question the Democrat candidates judgement:
From the Washington Times:
And the senator from Arizona raised many of the issues that have been simmering beneath the scenes: abortion and judicial nominations; Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez and Mr. Obama's pledge to meet with him; Mr. Obama's ties to William Ayers, a member of the Weather Underground group that bombed government buildings to protest the Vietnam War; and his ties to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), which is accused of voter registration fraud.
Mr. Obama brushed aside those attacks, denying that he is associated with Mr. Ayers or ACORN, and for the most part tried to keep the focus on his plans to revive the economy.
But "Joe the Plumber" sets the tone for the remaining three weeks of this campaign. Obama's pledge to "spread the wealth" reeks of socialism and marxism that his past relationships help to solidify. Now the choice is up to us------to embrace big government much like the Carter years when the welfare state nearly broke this nation economically and morally by our dependence or stand up and tell the liberals that this government will be returned to the people as a tool and not our nanny.
Update: From Beldar, a guest poster at Town Hall:
"John McCain did fine at the third debate, but he benefited mostly because Barack Obama's ordinariness became more obvious to more people. More people escaped the mass hypnosis tonight. They sat up suddenly, took a deep breath, and as they watched Barack Obama, do you know what they did next?
They patted their pants pockets, or looked around the room to see where they'd set down their purses. They checked their wallets. That's smart, and it's good for the McCain-Palin ticket. There's easily enough time left, friends and neighbors, for enough more people to awake and to do a wallet-check before they cast their votes on November 4th."
