Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

McCain Comes Out With Another Obama “Taxes” Ad

It’s high time for the Obama campaign to slap this down as the garbage this is. Obama actually provides a tax cut of $1,000 for a hardworking middle-class family of four. McCain only offers a measly $319 tax cut for a family of four. Obama only increases taxes for those making $250,000 and above. McCain gives those that make $200,000 an even bigger tax cut than he gives a hardworking middle-class family of four.

The response ad should show images of ordinary voters condemning John McCain’s false ad about Obama’s tax cut plan for working families.

“I was shocked when I found out McCain lied about Obama’s tax cuts.”

“I found out that Obama actually gives us a bigger tax cut of $1,000 than McCain does. He thinks his idea of a tax cut for a family of four is $319. Talk about being out of touch, and I guess that’s what happens when you can’t even remember how many houses you own!”

“It’s time for McCain to come clean about the lies he’s spreading about Obama’s tax cut plan.”

“I’m just frankly disgusted with John McCain. Is this the kind of politics he’s going to run in the White House? Talk about being another Bush third term.”

As dansac mentions in his comment below, the Obama campaign should turn this into a continued attack on McCain’s “out-of-touchness” with the American people. Here’s his excellent suggestion below:

I actually think the House-Gate issue has robbed these attacks of their teeth. I say instead of responding, just keep on attacking.

If you’re going to respond, say, “John McCain claims to know what it’s like to do a family budget. How can he if he doesn’t even know how many houses he owns?

Lying about Obama’s tax plans while being totally out of touch? There he goes again. If you liked George Bush, you’ll love John McCain”

  1. Slink, see my post below. I actually think the House-Gate issue has robbed these attacks of their teeth. I say instead of responding, just keep on attacking.

  3. John McCain doesn’t have to worry about a family budget when he has a $500,000 credit card balance.

    John’s McCain’s tax plan will benefit families like John McCain’s the most.

    After 30 years in Washington, John McCain and his lobbyist friends have no clue how to help families like yours.

  5. That’s interesting. I’m checking to see what others had to say on this when it happened.

  6. How about, “The only family budget Barack Obama’s plan will touch is one like John McCain’s. Barack Obama’s plan increases taxes on families that make more than $250,000. John McCain reported on his 2007 taxes that he spent $267,000 on household help alone. Is he worried that he and Cindy won’t be able to make ends meet on Obama’s plan? For truly middle class Americans, Obama’s plan decreases taxes significantly (show chart). Why is John McCain playing Karl Rove’s political games? It’s time to talk about the real issues and tell the truth.

  7. Obama,

    You are the first candidate the U.S. has had in a long time that has continued to spread false information from the first time you hit the campaign trail.

    I find your technique one of the most offensive I have ever experienced. I find your ethics are on the border of being unethical and your manipulation of the facts most disgusting.

    It is common knowledge that the media will always press United States citizens to vote for the candidate who offers them the biggest kick-backs, pay-backs, and over-all “favors”. That is you, Obama.

    Then look at your over all personas: Your stance, the way you hold your head, your gestures, the clothes you wear, the pronouns and adjectives you use. Everything about you is the personification of an individual, who does NOT, let me repeat DOES NOT, have the United States citizens interests’ at heart. You are an elitist and the persona I just described is living proof — your entire appearance is proof — FACT — of what I say.

    Okay – now let’s talk about education. You have a law degree but did not practice law. Why? Readers – look this one up and you will see why. And, the result is not a positive one.

    Then there is the community organizer work you undertook in the state of Illinois. That, too, has been overstated and turned into something “positive” that it in fact was NOT. Dear readers – check this one out yourself as there are many Illinois citizens who will tell you the “truth.”

    My education – NOBAMA – is equal to or greater than your education. I do have the same ability as you to influence U.S. Citizens: And I certainly am taking the opportunity to exploit you for what you truly are.

    You see I am an educator, who works for a famous “Research One” institution, who has the ability to write Journal Articles that all college students will use for research. The true facts about you will come out and in a place that will most definitely do the most good – to influence voters “young voters” on how to spot an individual who does not represent the United States in the capacity as he states he will. Make no mistake, Obama, people will definitely know the subject of the Journal Articles is referencing you and your 2008 Presidential campaign.

    See you in “honest” fact-finding print.

  8. Not only is Obama unable to demonstrate anything that he has positively accomplished honestly but he demonstrates the most liberal socialist and marxist philosophies that will be the downfall of all the freedoms and principles that this country was founded on. With the likelihood of a democratic House and Senate, it is frightening that this philosophy could also be in the Presidental position when a man of honor and courage is our other choice.
