He said he wouldn’t touch the Rev. Wright card. Why? Because both he and his running mate have pastor-problems of their own. But in a move of sheer desperation, McCain’s campaign has indeed pulled the Rev. Wright card.
This, in my eyes, made clear the fact that the McCain campaign is through. It has NOTHING of substance to offer, so in the most crucial time leading up to the election, it cannot garner votes or sway voters based on policy matters…so it turns to smear tactics.
Obama has taken the high road throughout the campaign. He hasn’t taken the bait that he so easily could have throughout this election season regarding McCain and Palin’s personal issues. He hasn’t allowed Palin’s family matters to become a staple of his speeches or his ads. He hasn’t harped on McCain’s personal lack of family values. Joe Biden took the high road, even in the debate last week by not correcting Sarah Palin when she butchered the name of the commanding officer in Afghanistan (calling him McClellan). But the McCain camp continues to be snarky and immature…when Sarah Palin corrected Joe Biden by sarcastically saying “The phrase is DRILL-BABY-DRILL” I literally wanted to throw up at how middle-school she was.
I am so sick of this immaturity, this below-the-belt crap that the McCain campaign is willing to dish out. It’s sick, it’s unpresidential, and you and I deserve more. Every day that goes by makes me more and more proud to be an Obama supporter.
