Obama Degenerates From Inexperienced To Flat-Out Childish

September 17, 2008

Barack Obama’s inexperience has been an issue since he began running for President.  But maybe voters should be looking into the issue of his childishness instead.

Obama has been running ads like this one:

“The dishonest smears that he repeats even after it has been exposed as a lie, truth be damned–a disgraceful, dishonorable campaign.

After voting with Bush 90 percent of the time, proposing the same disastrous economic policies. It seems that deception is all he has left.”

Now, that charge might be meaningful – and not merely the sniveling nonsense of a spoiled-rotten little brat – but he is simultaneously running ads like this one.

“John McCain has even said Social Security is a disgrace. I couldn’t disagree more. Our Social Security isn’t a disgrace. It’s a compact, a trust between generations of Americans. It’s a reflection of our values.”

Did John McCain really call Social Security a disgrace?  Not even close.  And its a horrible lie from horrible people to claim that he did.  Let me continue.

I found this from Media Matters, of all places:

ABC’s World News, NBC’s Nightly News, and the CBS Evening News have yet to cover the following statement Sen. John McCain made about Social Security during a July 7 town hall meeting in Denver: “Americans have got to understand that we are paying present-day retirees with the taxes paid by young workers in America today. And that’s a disgrace. It’s an absolute disgrace, and it’s got to be fixed.” According to a Washington Post article by reporters Jonathan Weisman and Michael D. Shear, McCain “sought to clarify his remarks” by saying young people are, in McCain’s words, “paying so much that they are paying into a system that they won’t receive benefits from on its present track that its on, that’s the point.”

Now, having read what McCain said was disgraceful, let me provide you with the definition of a Ponzi scheme:

A fraudulent investing scam that promises high rates of return at little risk to investors. The scheme generates returns for older investors by acquiring new investors. This scam actually yields the promised returns to earlier investors, as long as there are more new investors.

What John McCain actually said was a “disgrace” was the fact that Social Security has been allowed to degenerate into a massive Ponzi scheme, in which new investors are (forcibly!) bilked into paying off the older investors before the whole thing collapses.

Now, if Barack Obama wants to come out and say, “I intend to preserve Social Security as a doomed Ponzi scheme that will leave younger workers with nothing, and I will defy anyone who attempts to reform this broken system that would be illegal if anyone other than the government were perpetuating it,” fine.

Otherwise, Barack Obama is villifying John McCain – and claiming that “deception is all he has left” – when in reality HE is the slimy deceiver who ought to be pointed out as a villian by his own twisted standards.

Barack Obama is telling a shockingly perverted lie about John McCain even as he hypocritically calls McCain’s integrity into question.

According to an analysis by the TNS Media Intelligence Campaign Media Analysis Group (TNSMI/CMAG) and the University of Wisconsin Advertising Project, 77% of Barack Obama’s ads are negative, compared to only 56% of John McCain’s ads being negative.  And Obama is complaining about McCain going negative?

Barack Obama is the political equivalent of a five year old, who punches another kid, then cries like a an immature little baby when he gets punched back, and runs off to tell his teacher a pack lies to try to get the other kid punished.

Given this, and given what Democrats tried to do to Sarah Palin through vicious and hateful bogus attacks, I hope voters tell Obama what to go do with himself come November.

The one thing this country can do without is a lying Whiner-in-Chief.
