More Rhetoric: “One Key Issue Ignored”

September 3, 2008

The LA Times blog recently posted a story which is summed up by the following excerpt from their article:

Here’s what caught Obama’s attention, though (as well as that of others): “You did not hear a single word about the economy,” he told a small gathering of supporters at a college campus in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

While Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention was focused on the character, history and record of John McCain, the Economy was not ignored by the Republications. Sorry Obama, but you’re busted.

Here is a direct quote from Senator Fred Thompson from last night’s speech (from NPR.com):

We need a president who understands that you don’t make citizens prosperous by making Washington richer, and you don’t lift an economic downturn by imposing one of the largest tax increases in American history.

Now our opponents tell you not to worry about their tax increases. They tell you they are not going to tax your family.

No, they’re just going to tax “businesses”! So unless you buy something from a “business,” like groceries or clothes or gasoline … or unless you get a paycheck from a big or a small “business,” don’t worry … it’s not going to affect you.

Making citizens prosperous, buying groceries, clothing, gas… economic downturn. Apparently Obama is incapable of identifying an attack on his own economic policy, let alone being able to pick out the parts of a speech that relate to important issues like the economy.

Obama is not even remotely qualified to be the President of the United States, has some of the most liberal policies of any candidate in history, and he continues to try and disguise this with rhetoric and misinformation which immediately gets picked up by liberal media outlets such as the LA Times without so much as a fact check.
