Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Oh Please Let There Be Video or Pictures

Of this:

Albuquerque, NM- Today, the Democratic Party of New Mexico were joined by Patsy Trujillo, the Deputy Secretary of Aging and Long Term Care as well as Victor Raigoza, State Senate District 10 Candidate to attempt to sing Happy 73rd Birthday to Social Security outside the McCain headquarters office, only to have the birthday cake thrown in the trash by the campaign.

While McCain supporters screamed, “Obama sleeps with a Teddy Bear and a night light,” staffers approached the Democratic group, yelling, took the 20 inch sheet cake that said “Happy Birthday Social Security” and threw it away.

How stupid is the republican party to toss it in the trash, instead of giving to a shelter or some such thing? Perhaps they’re a little sensitive about birthday cakes:

McCakes

A perfect metaphor for McCain’s philosophy on Social Security.

  5. This shows the kind of low end supporters Obama is attracting.

    Yell Oh Blah Blah all you want.

    Britney is not fit for Office a failed 3 yr Jr. Senator bumbling and stumbling around does not qualify him for anything, except the gossip pages.

    Obama is now pretending he is a serious candidate, hopefully America can afford this nightmare senario of his failed socialist policies.

  6. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – nothing validates the success of Strategy ’08 like being infiltrated by GOP hacks!

    Amazing but to be expected.

  11. Well, they may be yelling silly invectives and throwing away cakes in New Mexico, but in front of McCain’s Arizona Senatorial Office, in Phoenix, there have been disabled veterans picketing for the PAST two years. They are out there every day (I know because I drive by and wave to them on my way to work every morning) and they are quietly protesting McCain’s lack of support on veteran’s issues and his position on the war. These are not just old folks, but young kids, missing arms and legs. There are a combination of Vietnam, Desert Storm and the current war veterans out there. Rain or shine/100+ degree heat and all. They refuse to abandon their hope of being heard and taken seriously. It is just gut wrenching. You’d think THAT would be news…. but evidently it isn’t. How sad are we? In the words of Robert Greenwald, “Psssst – do something/pass it on!”)

  15. There are real issues out there. Why are we wasting time on this? Oh yeah, symbolism…right. OK, so we know Repubs are mean and nasty and wasteful. This is news?!? Time to expose McCain for what he is: about as fit to lead this country as W is. Obama – or else!

    PS – Obama sleeps with his first wife. McCain and Mrs. #2 don’t even live together. Way to go with the Family Values….
