Obama delighted Cheney delighted with McCain in new spot

| 3 Comments

SPRINGFIELD, MO.--While the Obama entourage--Barack and Michelle Obama, their daughters, campaign staff, travel press-- was awakening in the heart of the Ozark Mountain Country on Sunday, the ad team released a new spot jamming John McCain with Vice President Cheney's tout of the McCain Palin ticket on Saturday.

(This corner of Missouri is usually a GOP stronghold; Obama took the time to stump here to cut down on McCain's margins, making it easier to win this battleground state.)

"I'm delighted to support John McCain and... I'm pleased that he's chosen a running mate with executive talent, toughness and common sense, our next vice president Sarah Palin," Cheney said in Wyoming.

Obama on Saturday in Pueblo, Col. called this an endorsement as it Cheney was for the first time coming out for McCain; perhaps a better way is just to say Cheney was just reaffirming his backing for the GOP ticket.

DICK I HAVE BEEN IN HIDING CHENEY COMES OUT FROM
HIS UNDISCLOSED LOCATION TO SEND MCCAIN INTO
RETIREMENT!
HE NEEDED THIS ENDORSEMENT LIKE I NEED JOCK ITCH!
SO LONG MCCAIN, YOU AND CHENEY AND CONDI CAN GO
FISHING WITH PALIN AND THE FIRST DUDE!
ADIOS, YOU CAN STICK A FORK IN HIM, HE IS DONE!
OBAMA SMASHED HIM GOOD!
MCCAIN DESERVED TO LOSE, BECAUSE HE FOUGHT VERY
DIRTY, ALOT OF LOW BLOWS, NO PLAN AND HE WENT
DOWN HARD, HE IS A LOSER AND INSTEAD OF BEING THE
GUY WHO THE CONSERVATIVES DIDN'T LIKE, HE BECAME
ONE OF THEM AND LOST HIS DIGNITY IN THE PROCESS!

AFTER THE LANDSLIDE TOMORROW MCCAIN WILL GO DOWN
IN HISTORY AS THE BIGGEST LOSER IN HISTORY!
VOTE FOR THE SMARTER MAN, IT'S A NO BRAINER!
BARACK OBAMA THE MAN FROM HARVARD, NOT THE GUY
WHO SHOULD HAVE FLUNKED OUT OF THE NAVAL ACADEMY!
AMERICA, THINK ABOUT IT, YOU TELL YOUR CHILDREN
TO STUDY HARD, AND THEN YOU SAY WHEN THEY ACHIEVE
JOB WELL DONE, WE SHOULDN'T REWARD A MAN WHO HAS
BEEN SUBPAR ALL OF HIS LIFE!
THEY CAN PLAY ALL THE NEGATIVE ADS THEY WANT, BUT
AMERICANS ARE GREAT PEOPLE THEY DON'T FALL FOR
THE OKE DOKE!
BARACK OBAMA WON THE CAMPAIGN, HE IS THE BEST
AND YOU GUYS KNOW IT!


McCain is only for his party and what they represent. He doesn't have a pulse on real America.

That is why the smart money is on Obama.
