I can understand why Sarah is pissed off at McCain and all of his former campaign staff!
They practically ruined her whole life; just think how different things would be for her now if McCain had chosen someone else...
NOTE: This article was written by Karl Rove, so take it however you will.
It looks like Obama spent about $250,000,000.00 more than McCain on this election. If this number is found to be accurate, it would be the biggest gap in spending between two candidates ever. Really, it's not terribly surprising that the winner of the election spent more money; we watch a lot of TV collectively as a country. McCain was right when he said that Obama was a celebrity. He worked the TV shows and the ads pretty well, I think.
Anyway, the real problem, according to Karl, is that Obama accepted donations from untraceable sources:
But that's not the entire story. It's been reported that the Obama campaign accepted donations from untraceable, pre-paid debit cards used by Daffy Duck, Bart Simpson, Family Guy, King Kong and other questionable characters. If the FEC follows up with a report on this, it should make for interesting reading.
Karl doesn't seem bitter at all though.
Things John McCain needs to know before 3rd debate starts:
- We did not invade Iraq to defeat the insurgency.
- We invaded to remove Saddam from power, because you and Bush incorreclty insisted he was developing WMD.
- Saddam is dead, Iraq has a new constitution and elected government, and there are no WMD. Bringing the troops home over the next two years isn't "defeat." It is sanity.
- Ahmadinejad never said he wanted to "wipe Israel off the map", let alone "start another holocaust".
- Government regulations that prevent corruption and discourage speculation can be a good thing.
- After your claims that Saddam had WMD, that we had to remove him from power before he used them to attack us, that the Iraq War would be easy, and that we would be greeted as liberators, calling Obama naive about foreign policy matters just makes you look like a giant douchebag.
- Offshore drilling won't put new oil on the market for at least 10 years, and the amount would be so small that it would only lower gas prices a few cents per gallon from whatever gas costs 10 years from now. (10 years ago, gas cost about $1.20/gallon)
