John McCain is a Liar

The McCain Campaign released an ad on their website and some small cable buys in order to convience voters (through the media helping the campaign by repeating the lies) that Barack Obama doesn’t understand world events. In his ad called “Tiny,” the McCain Campaign combines distorted Obama quotes with scary images of the middle east in order to isolate Jewish American voters.

ABC’s Jake Tapper does a nice job of showing the lies that the desperate McCain Campaign is looking to spread and the facts that what Obama said is actually practical, thoughful, pragmatic and rational.

First read the quote from Obama and then watch the ad.

Obama said:

“Strong countries and strong presidents talk to their adversaries. That’s what Kennedy did with Khrushchev. That’s what Reagan did with Gorbachev. That’s what Nixon did with Mao. I mean, think about it. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela — these countries are tiny, compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet, we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, ‘We’re going to wipe you off the planet.’

“And ultimately, that direct engagement led to a series of measures that helped prevent nuclear war, and over time, allowed the kind of opening that brought down the Berlin Wall,” Obama continued. “Now, that has to be the kind of approach that we take. You know, Iran, they spend one-one hundredth of what we spend on the military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance. And we should use that position of strength that we have, to be bold enough to go ahead and listen. That doesn’t mean we agree with them on everything. We might not compromise on any issues, but at least we should find out other areas of potential common interest, and we can reduce some of the tensions that has caused us so many problems around the world.”

    It does not matter to me all the lies that are listed about Sen. Obama. It just took one truth for me not to trust this man. He sat in a radical black theology church for 20 years and became like family to a so called reverend who hates America. Do not even try to tell me that he explained his relationship with Rev. Wright and his relationship with such a church-HE DID NOT! I would never vote for a radical black theology member not even if he was running for dogcatcher.

  2. Thanks for writing…here’s the problem, even if you still think that Rev. Wright and Barack Obama are still bedfellows, then you’ve got to come to terms that John McCain and Sarah Palin have some preacher issues. First, John McCain took the endorsement of Rev. John Hagee who railed against Jews and more. Then there’s Rod Parsley who called Islam a false religion and wishes it destroyed.

    Then there’s Sarah Palin’s pastor said God will destroy America: http://maxblumenthal.com/2008/09/palins-pastor-god-is-gonna-strike-out-his-hand-againstamerica/

    God destroy America? That’s anti-American, correct?

    Sarah Palin was also in church when a “Jew for Jesus” said terrorism in Israel was because Jews didn’t accept Jesus as their lord.

    So Koolmom, if you want to call Obama a radical “black theology member,” what do you say about the bigoted antics of the the Pastors who Palin/McCain support or support Palin/McCain?

    jasonrosenberg,
    There is one big difference-they do not feel like family. Sen. Obama does feel like Rev. Wright is like his own family. Rev. Wright was Sen. Obama’s spiritual adviser. I have a spiritual adviser and you pick someone who shares your same beliefs. His friends do matter. Birds of a feather flock together-or should I say tribes-I read his book so do not tell me we can not judge his own words. I would never vote for a radical black theology member just like I would never vote for a KKK member. Would you?

    If McCain is willing to lie his way into office, what is he going to do when he’s IN office? Electing John McCain would send a powerful message to Washington: “We don’t mind being lied to.” I’m not sure that that’s the best message to send.
