ROCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) – Shortly before John McCain set to lay out his new stump speech Monday morning, Joe Biden said it looked like the address would be “attack, attack, attack, attack” in contrast with Barack Obama’s plans to lay out his vision for the economy later in the day.
Watch: What is McCain really offering?
“Barack is going to make a major speech on economic policy, going to further outline what he’s going to do and how he’s going to deal with it,” said the Democratic vice presidential nominee. “It looks like John McCain’s entire speech is going to be attack, attack, attack, attack.”
“It couldn’t be clearer to me what’s going on here. John McCain wants to attack Barack Obama, and Barack Obama wants to [attack] the problems that face America today,” he said.
The McCain campaign shot back, calling Obama’s economic plan "plagiarism" of President Herbert Hoover’s during the Great Depression and championing their own “bold” proposal.
"The Obama-Biden ticket’s call for higher taxes on American businesses and isolationist trade policies mirrors the proposals that President Hoover implemented at the onset of the Great Depression, spurring a complete economic collapse," McCain spokesman Ben Porritt wrote in an e-mail. "It's plagiarism of the very worst economic policies in American history."
The Delaware senator said McCain had an advantage in the campaign has a war hero and people assumed that as a result, he would have “certain hands” in a crisis.
“We need more than a war hero, we need more than a great soldier, we need a wise leader,” said Biden. “John's hands have been anything but certain in the last year. They've been uncertain. And the McCain administration would be uncertain, clinging to the past, lurching from one bad idea to another.”
GO JOE!!!! Get ready, though, because those nasty "Obama is an Arab" emails etc are going to start swirling around even more. Remember that little old lady talking to McSame on the news? She finally said she can't 'trust" Obama because "he's.....Arab". See, all those "Barack Hussein Obama" comments are paying off. I sure didn't hear McCain say no ma'am, that isn't true!!! So as long as he allows people to spread The fearmongering is going to get worse in the next 3 weeks. GO O, AND JOE!!
Is it unrealistic to imagine McCain/Palin conceding the election just before the bell tolls? Thereby promoting unity and at the same time buffering them, somewhat, from the disastrous consequences of their actions. The angry conservatives can feel good about saying that McCain never actually lost the vote, and McCain could truly be considered a maverick who put country first. He has no need to apologize for losing the election, he can openly state that Obama has a vision for America that is undeniable.
Go Obama and Biden!!!!!!
Joe Biden is right – all McCain and Palin have are hate filled attacks against Senator Obama. And those hate filled speeches are going to get somebody hurt.
Sure do paint a purty picture don't he Ma?
We might as well start takin' down the fences now cuz these guys are gonna sell off whats left of America and we won't have a home no more.
IF YOUR A HUMAN YOU SHOULD BE VOTING FOR OBAMA!!!! McCain has no real solutions. His 1st and foremost concerns are apeasing the lobbyists who donated millions to his campaign. I would want a return on my investment... wouldn't you????
MCCain and Palin are exciting the crowds! By pandering and not telling
the American people the truth.
On healthcare, McCain wants to give your employer an escape from
paying for your healthcare. It will be optional for your employer! Should
they choose to oblige, you pay taxes on your healthcare, which will take a chunk of your little check! The $5,000 credit you would receive
is only money that you have earned!!!!! You just don't have to pay taxes
on it. My friends, you still won't be able to afford healthcare! And your family will not be covered.!!!!! on that!Think
about that one, my friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama Biden 2008
And I'll tell you something else:
The republican party has reached it's low by allowing McCain and Palin to incite hate and terrorism and treason on their campaign trail. They will lose millions of votes....and any honor they had left.
To Mello in New Mexico,
You, my friend, and your family and your loved ones are about to get
screwed. You better wake up and listen up!!!!!
Sen. Biden is a great VP choice. He's a man of substance, heart and common sense.
To all my fellow Americans of all colors. Racism will make this race way closer than it should be, this is the 2 ton elephant everyone is reluctant to let in the room. There is no logical explanation as to why anyone but die hard repugs could even consider voting for McCain and Palin, considering how they have conducted their campaign this past month. Obama's lead should be at least 3 times what it is. To all white, Latino, and even some African Americans who can't get past the man's skin color or his name remember this, voting for the white guy out of spite for the black guy is as dumb as cutting your nose off to spite your face. And if you idiots succeed, we'll all suffer from your ignorance.
i cant believe we can have a lying demo like obama/ biden
