If You Can't Take the Heat...


Barack Obama tells the Tennessee Republican Party to "lay off" Michelle Obama's unpatriotic comments-while he sends her out to publicly campaign for him. Mike Huckabee hints that he would take the GOP Vice Presidential nomination if offered.

Bob, the closet liberal, Corker, whom I knew better than to vote for, has taken the side of Michelle Obama.

Corker has finally gotten back in touch with his inner liberal. Interesting how he was able to fool enough people just to get elected.

If Obama becomes President you watch the voting record of this front running phony republican.
He will move to the left you can bet on it.

The Tennessee GOP has started its Fall campaign on Obama by attacking his wife Michelle for her “proud of America” remarks. They must figure that it’s easier to attack a candidate’s spouse rather than go for the main contender. It’s discourteous and one that is reminiscent of the 1828 attacks against Andy Jackson’s wife Rachel. The Republicans were soundly defeated in that campaign, partly due to Jackson’s immense popularity and the distasteful attacks against his wife.

It remains to be seen if history will repeat itself, but throughout the nomination process, trying to beat Obama with personal attacks instead of policy arguments has all but failed. GOP Tennesseans may feel they were being patriotic in singling out Michelle Obama for their initial attack ads, but this will only increase Obama’s popularity and make Tennessean Republicans look paltry.

If McCain has any spine, he will condemn these spurious attacks and call to make political spousal abuse off limits for both parties. Politics is an ugly business, but drive-by slurs only makes the perpetrators look even uglier in the eyes of voting citizens.

LMAO Stushie Beating Obama will be fun. We haven't even gotten started on him yet. There is so much the public doesn't know. There has been No personal attacks on Obama or his wife. If she chooses to open her trap then she has a right to be critiqued and if she cannot handle the pressure she needs to be quiet. Funny thing is when anyone questions Obama about anything his PR people spin it to either race or personal. He is a phony and solely a facade and he will be exposed.

Michelle's "unpatriotic" comments? More "idiotic" pigeonholing from folks who don't even know the true meaning of "patriotic".

If calling Michelle out, if calling out Obama's old minister out, If calling out anyone who might have rubbed shoulders with the man in the past is all the Republicans have, my decision to leave the party 28 years ago was the right decision.

You claim the Obamas need to toughen up. I say BS. If Barack had not responded, this little to do about nothing would have grown longer legs. As it stands, the GOP will beat this horse long after it's dead anyway. SO what Barack does is beside the point.

Mr. Macrum;
This is politics, period. The Obama's need to take it and develop their own political line, or walk away. That's the point. If you aren't ready to handle hits, you don't need to be involved.

Mr Oatney - A thick skin is required for sure. And I have no sympathy for any of the candidates. What I have a problem with is the political process has now become centered around non issues while real issues sit in the wings ignored and brushed to the side. WHo carss what Michelle said? Is she running for president? Who cares what ex gov Bush's daughter did in the way of drugs? It's not about issues anymore, but personalities.

I expect some of the crap I see, but not to the extent it is being used these last 5 or 6 election cycles.
