Pulling the wool over the American electorate is easier than you think…
Don’t believe me?
McCain is sticking to his plans of not talking about issues and going after the man – OK, if that is how you want to run a race then I would have thought that the American voter would simply see McCain for what he is – an idiot, but no. People are beginning to believe his lies. One of those lies is about a group, who either supports Obama or not – who cares? – McCain cares. Why would he care? Because it means two things.
The first thing is that if he attacks ACORN he gets under the skin of those who have registered with them – making them feel like they have done something wrong and will investigated if they try to vote: this is called voter suppression. It is a matter that if McCain can seed doubt then less people will vote and mean that he has a better chance of victory – John McCain doesn’t believe in democracy.
The FBI are investigating any and all oddities with regard to ACORN’s activities, and the thing with that is ACORN is co-operating 100% with the FBI. For such a criminal group you would think that they wanted to hide something – but no, they are voluntarily giving the FBI anything and more to help them. Odd that, no?
Secondly – Now that this is being repeated so much and the American voter is beginning to actually listen to McCain – the Obama camp asks for a special prosecutor to be involved. Yippee, you would think – but alas no.
McCain is saying no – he doesn’t want a special prosecutor involved – now I wonder why?
The McCain campaign suggested that Obama and his campaign were engaging in partisan politics by requesting the special prosecutor’s involvement. In a statement issued Friday night, McCain-Palin spokesman Ben Porritt called Obama’s request “absurd” and said it was an attempt to “criminalize political discourse.”
“Rest assured that, despite these threats, the McCain-Palin campaign will continue to address the serious issue of voter registration fraud by ACORN and other partisan groups, and compliance by states with the Help America Vote Act’s requirement of matching new voter registrations with state data bases to prevent voter fraud,” Porritt added.
Hmmm – something is a bit odd here.
How do you criminalise political discourse? What that actually means is that McCain will have to stop lying – and if he does lie he will be liable. But McCain doesn’t want that, you see – what he wants to keep doing is saying that ACORN is a left-wing, underground movement who is going to overthrow the USA, which they aren’t – they are a group of people who are trying to get people registered to vote in an election. But the people they are trying to get registered are poor, working-class people, who, in the US funnily enough are mostly ethnic minorities – now why would John McCain want to stop minorities from voting, I wonder?
How is asking for a special prosecutor a threat? And, like John McCain’s Iraq policy – no matter what anyone says – he will keep going, and going – not that he does want the ‘truth’ – he even said that to your face in the presidential debate – he really doesn’t want the truth – he wants an attack line that keeps HIM OFF the real issues. If he wins, and a week later things go from worse to unbelievably bad/worse – people will start asking, “Who voted for this moron?”
Well – you did, because so many believe his lies.
If McCain had said, “OK – we have a special prosecutor getting involved and I commend my team for asking for it (they didn’t but he can claim the benefit) we will wait until they have investigated the alleged fraud”, – things would look a lot better for McCain. But he isn’t. He and his dope of a running mate are going to keep up the attack – because it is working for them – because THAT is how easy it is to pull the wool over the American voter’s eyes!
If John McCain had any honour left he would fire his team of incompetents – again, he won’t because more than anything John McCain wants to be president because then he can lay the burden of being useless on the floor and walk all over that – as well as the American flag.
Because John McCain doesn’t love America – he loves his push for power.
