Top Hillary Democrat Officially Endorses John McCain

We have a tale of two women – two powerful money women – in our latest news cycle.  Yesterday, Obama had a symbolic “gotcha” moment fall into his lap with McCain aide said, “I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation…”.  But John McCain had a major coup when a top “Hillraiser” officially announces her support of John McCain.

Obama is already talking Carly Fiorina’s remark up on the stump (albeit a stump with a teleprompter ever nearby), and running advertisements, and arguing that even McCain’s own advisers don’t think he’s ready to run the country.  In continuing his pattern of stripping away the surrounding context of his opponents’ words and engaging in a point solely based on rhetoric divorced from reality, Obama scored a point with some.

But here’s the full remark:

“Well, I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation, I don’t think Barack Obama could run a major corporation, I don’t think Joe Biden could run a major corporation,” Fiorina said.

“It is a fallacy to suggest that the country is like a company. So, of course, to run a business, you have to have a lifetime of experience in business, but that’s not what Sarah Palin, John McCain, Joe Biden or Barack Obama are doing.”

So as usual Obama is playing word games that mock the truth.

John McCain, on the other hand, doesn’t need to play any games to make headway with Former top Hillary Clinton supporter and fundraiser, Lynn Forester de Rothschild.  He doesn’t have to distort her words to make it appear as though she is saying something that supports him.  She actually IS supporting him:

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committees Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN. “I feel like he is an elitist,” said de Rothschild, the wife of international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild.

In an interview with CNN this summer, Forester did not hide her distaste for eventual Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don’t like him,– she said of Obama in an interview with CNNs Joe Johns. I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.

I’m with you, Lynn.  Frankly, I don’t like him either.  And, oh, do I ever feel he is an elitist with his telling pinky-in-the-air San Fransiscan snobs how bitterly Pennsylvanian heartlanders cling to their guns and their religion and hate people who aren’t just like them.  And only the farthest left has any reason to trust Barack Obama.

Barack Obama, while engaging in a psychologically disturbing brand of self-righteous anger over any hint that he’s being unfairly represented, unfairly represents virtually every word that comes out of his opponents’ mouths.  Deception and word-games appear to be at his very core.  And a top Democrat came out and said it as she supports John McCain because she’s come to believe that Barack Obama is a no-good lying weasel.  This woman – who built a multimillion-dollar telecommunications company prior to her marriage into the wealthy Rothschild family – says she trusts John McCain to steer us through a difficult economic stretch.

Here’s what Rothschild said in explaining why she was endorsing McCain-Palin:

“In an election as important at this, we must choose the candidate who has a proven record of bipartisanship and reforming government, and that’s John McCain,” Rothschild said.

“We can’t afford a president who lacks experience and judgment and has never crossed party lines to work for meaningful reform. Amid tough economic times and foreign policy concerns, we need someone who is ready to lead. Although I am a Democrat, I recognize that it’s more important to put country ahead of party and that’s why I support John McCain.”

Rothschild, an attorney and businesswoman, supported Sen. Clinton during the Democratic primaries. She will campaign for Sen. McCain through Election Day.

Good for you, Obama.  If you cut off Carly Fiorina’s honest assessment at just the right moment, you can make it appear as if she is criticizing John McCain.  Too bad you can’t distort Lynn Rothschild’s endorsement of your opponent just as easily.

    John McCain will not ‘steer us through a difficult econmic strech.’ His choice of VP is a clear indication that he does not make intelligent choices.
    I was a fervent Hillary supporter, and I was upset when she did not win the nomination. I took a good look at Obama, and I think he is a good guy. I now support Obama. I am faithful to the party.
    I thought Rothschild was an intelligent woman. She thinks McCain made a wise choice for his VP? I think she dislikes Obama for reasons she can’t say in public.

    Keep drinking that Democratic Kool Aid.

    354 lawmakers took contributions from Freddie and Fannie – which precipitated the economic disaster we are now seeing. Barack Obama was number 2 on the list of recipients in terms of dollars. He picked a Fannie CEO to head his VP selection committee. Two studies show the guy he ended up picking (Biden) was directly responsible for the collapses.

    Palin is so much more qualified than Obama to lead ANYTHING that its not even funny. And Rothschild knows it.

    She knows that her party chose the biggest turkey in the history of the nation. And she doesn’t want any part of the disaster that this guy is waiting to become.

    I have seen the interviews with Sara Palin and I think she is so dumb. This proves anyone can be a VP. She only has a BA; she is not very educated.
    Biden and Obama are both lawyers. They are both very educated. We need educated people at the tp and not peasants.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    Martina, I don’t know what to say, other than I think you are dumb for thinking she’s dumb. You are certainly being an ideologue who is completely incapable of seeing any good quality in someone on the other side of your ideology.

    There’s a joke: what do you call a million lawyers on the bottom of the ocean? A good start. Lawyers are THE least trusted, and most despised group of people in the country – and you want them to lead it.

    Nice elitist comment with the “peasant” thing, btw. Lest anyone think that liberals AREN’T arrogant beyond belief.

  5. Folbama Says:

    Please allow me to respond to Martina. She is a typical Obamabot crawling through the FoxNews columns all the time. They have no minds of their own and believe Obama to be their Savior Messiah Immaculate Conception Man just because He is perceived as a Black Person, which he is not but they don’t understand it. She is probably on dole with three illegitimate children and no husband. She can’t spell and will never learn because they will have paradise from Obama where they will drink the Kool-Aid all day long and never have to do a stitch of work. I know them; it is a waste of time talking any sense to them.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    I don’t know anything about Martina’s personal situation (and we really shouldn’t go “there”), but I agree with your last two sentences.

    Whenever I start hearing liberals speaking in slogans, I just walk away. There’s no point arguing with people who say, “Bush lied, people died.” We can only work to defeat them.

    She says that Obama-Biden should be elected because they have more education than Palin. Well, I have more education that Obama or Biden; by her logic, shouldn’t I be President instead? And, of course, there are people with more education than I; should we vote for the person who spent his entire life in academia, and knows absolutely nothing about the world outside the big white tower?

    Sorry, Martina, but this is an idea that comes from way too many sips of the Kool-Aid.
