Just another example of McStain's "Brillyunce of Idiocy" approach to campaigning. Pick someone to put out in front of you as an embodiment of your policy proposals, whose hopes and dreams will be squashed by your opponent's policies. Never mind that most of your premises are not true, ie LIES. The Lie Component is essential to the strategy.
First off, just the process of uncovering the lies is labeled "intrusion." "Joe never asked for this." Did he ask for you to bring up his situation, Johnny Surge? Give permission to do so?
The fact that he owes back taxes, just shows that he's overwhelmed by the burden of an unfair system. Did he not fill out his forms correctly to take full advantage of those grand and glorious Bush tax cuts that "overwhelmingly helped the vast majority of Americans?" That would be calling him stupid; showing disrespect for working class, ordinary people.
The fact that he is indeed not a licensed plumber, just shows the impediments ordinary Americans face as they pursue their dreams. Licensing, regulation bad, Bad, BAD. Never mind the misrepresentation and the fact that the guy Is.... Not... a Plumber.
Never mind that the guy doesn't make anywhere near enough to qualify for a loan to buy the business has he supposedly desires. Now.... is that an example of the need for more deregulation? Do we need sub-prime small business loans now?
We are the bad ones: Pointing out facts is now, "dragging a good man's name through the mud." Has nothing to do with the fact that he was first put in that mud by the lying. In all of this, we -- liberals, Democrats, McSame opponents, the wicked evil press corps -- miss the over arching narrative of the American Dream and the "Good Old Days." Never mind that that's a crock of shit on several levels.
I made the mistake of voting for Reagan; twice, no less. When HW , Daddy Bush, came along with his Willie Horton adds and other negative shit, distorting facts and dividing the country, I thought I'd seen the worst. It was so obvious to me: You go negative, when you have no positives.
Then came W, Jr Bush, the "uniter not a divider," who was willing to "reach out to all those who embrace our vision." That's not uniting; that's circling the wagons. He proceeded to divide the country further than I ever imagined someone could. He did it through lying, but he lied with a bit of style. A lot of his lies were encoded within his butchered grammar and syntax. While we made fun of how he talked, he did what he said. He passes/signs the Clear Skies Initiative that dirties the skies. He declares National Parks Week when he cuts the national parks' budget. And it goes on and on.
Now we have Johnny Mac... McCain the Insane... Grampy... McSame... The lies are there once again, and this time they're blatant. Obama repeatedly talks of cutting taxes for 95% of Americans and McSurge repeatedly talks of his desire to raise taxes. Cock sucking Fucker's on MSNBC right now spewing more lies... bringing up his fake plumber again... promising more tax cuts for businesses... that already pay no taxes..? Keeping taxes low, creates jobs... like they have for the last 8 years?
Do the people who cheer him actually listen to what he says? ???
He's not George Bush. True.
He's way fucking worse.
I'm too pissed to write anymore. Damnit
