Did The Old Man Play the Race Card????

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News, Quote of The Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

Some mainstream media outlets are debating whether a recent attack ad on your boy Barack played the race card. Time Magazine sees McCain being slick here and dangling race out there for white folks to bite on:

When politicians interject race into a campaign, they seldom do it directly. Consider McCain’s new ad, which the campaign says it will be airing nationally …

This is hardly subtle: Sinister images of two black men, followed by one of a vulnerable-looking elderly white woman.

Let me stipulate: Obama’s Fannie Mae connections are completely fair game. But this ad doesn’t even mention a far more significant tie–that of Jim Johnson, the former Fannie Mae chairman who had to resign as head of Obama’s vice presidential search team after it was revealed he got a sweetheart deal on a mortgage from Countrywide Financial. Instead, it relies on a fleeting and tenuous reference in a Washington Post Style section story to suggest that Obama’s principal economic adviser is former Fannie Mae Chairman Frank Raines. Why? One reason might be that Johnson is white; Raines is black.

McCain’s camp already knew Raines wasn’t an Obama’s advisor.

    All McCain needs to do is throw in a half naked white woman telling Barack to call her sometime, and he can win. They think using the same kind of ad that the Repubs used against Harold Ford Jr. will work, and it won’t!

    As ususal the video won’t play for me. And what the hell is up with Countrywide? They also gave Kwame Kilpatrick a sweetheart deal on a mortgage in Florida. Are they under investigation?

    That mess that went down in Tennessee worked partially because Ford was single. Michelle won’t b having ANY of it!

    I can’t get that daggone ghetto link 2 work either. If this McSame ad is anything like their “Obama and Kwame Kilpatrick r alike because they’re black” ads, then I really don’t want 2 c it.

    I mean, it’s not like Barack voted with Kwame Kilpatrick 90% of the time or anything…

    Jurassic John has 1 foot in the grave and another on a banana peel, and instead of getting himself right, he’s down here telling lies.

    Win at ANY cost… right McBush?

    Y’all need to get out of Obama’s ass. He and his fellow Dems are all up in bed with Freddie and Fannie. That’s why you haven’t heard them say much about it this week. He and Biden even voted against the McCain bill a few years ago that would have averted the current crisis with F & F. You guys really need to open your eyes about this man. According to the Iraqi foreign minister, on Obama’s trip to Iraq in July, he asked the leaders there to delay signing a new troop withdrawal agreement until he gets into office, just so he can take all the credit. F**king hypocrite! Obama is just as sleazy and dirty as Clinton was. I’m not voting for McCain, but nor will I vote for Obama. For a man who had such promise earlier this year, Obama has turned into just another dirty politician.

    Now I know we aint surprised by this subliminal ish. The Republicans also (probably) “hacked” Sarah Palin’s yahoo account and “publically” posted the entries as another stunt–as if to show how benign and trustworthy she is. These are Willy Horton tactics of old (google him under the first prez Bush)

    It won’t fly this time. If McCain does win, I am taking my 30,000 cash out of Bank of America and putting under the mattress before the bottom falls totally out…

    If you live in the Charlotte or metro area, Obama will be here on the 21st of September campaigning.

    John McCain will continue to do this until election time. But, that’s what desperate people do. Smart people know better. Barack has been the one candidate in our life who has been real with all his issues. November will be here soon, folks. Let your voice be heard. Please vote.

    The Obama campaign did respond-they said Raines was never an Obama adviser-and McCain knew it because an email was sent to the top adviser of the McCain team-who never responded to the Obama campaign. McCain is the liar, and the racist coward. Don’t get your facts twisted.

  • http://www.fightthesmears.com Black.Woman.N.Memphis

    Obama and Biden would rather talk about the ISSUES THAT AMERICA ARE SUFFERING WITH than to attack John McCain and Sarah Palin with stupid lies unlike John McCain and Sarah Palin. Barack and Joe cares about the people-not playing tit for tat. Once again, get the facts straight.

    The ad Is racist-why couldn’t they have picked a black lady? The people who make these ads know what they are doing, and so does McLiar….
