How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts
'Republican Attack Machine'
What the liberal whiners say:
'I am so sick and tired of this vicious Republican attack machine, engaged once again, in dirty politics rather than the issues'
'Oh and what about all of McCain's surrogates, like YOU and all the rest of the haters in talk radio! Constantly yapping about Barack Obama, viscously calling him "Barry" or a "Marxist".
'The Republicans only have the same old failed policies of the past 30 years, that's why they can't talk about the REAL issues...instead, they're talking about Obama's birth certificate!'
'Oh, it's OK to attack Barack and Michelle Obama's patriotism every day, but we can't bring up whether McCain supports American car companies?'
'You just have to keep avoiding the real issues with McCain, don't you? He's completely out of touch with the American people. Not only is he so rich he can't relate to the disappearing middle class, but he's so OLD, he doesn't even access the Internet!'
Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments
1. Actually, according to a new study our from the TNS Media Intelligence Campaign Media Analysis Group and the University of Wisconsin Advertising Project, 77% of Barack Obama's ads have been negative, compared to 56% of McCain's.
2. First, I don't think I've ever called him "Barry". But as far as calling him "Marxist", that's all about his ideology and what he's proposed for America. That's not an attack...that's a fact...and a real issue. If you want to talk about "viscous" attacks by surrogates, how about Saturday Night Live asserting that Sarah Palin's husband is having an incestuous relationship with his daughters? Or Charlie Rangel calling Sarah Palin "disabled"?
3. No legitimate conservatives are talking his birth certificate. Meanwhile, democrats are still talking about how many homes John McCain owns, as if success is evil. Now, they're even attacking him for owning 13 CARS! And are making a big deal out of some of them being foreign cars.
4.We've already talked about all the reasons the Obama's have raised concerns over their patriotism. John McCain has made HIS patriotism crystal clear fighting for this country, and giving up over 5 years of his life in a Vietnamese prison.
5. Which brings us to yet ANOTHER ugly democrat attack on McCain. Because of the injuries he received in Vietnam, he can't raise his arms over his head; AND...it's too painful for him to use a computer keyboard. That's why he has his staff send emails for him. Would you like to make fun of his war wounds some more?
