Yet another lie by Obama that most of you are willing to accept because he isn't a Republican:http://www.timesleader.com/news/breakingnews/Secret_Service_says_Kill_him_allegation_unfounded_.html
"The first story, written by reporter David Singleton, appeared with allegations that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett was addressing the crowd and mentioned Obama’s name a man in the audience shouted “kill him."
Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.
“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.
He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.
Slavoski said more than 20 non-security agents were interviewed Wednesday, from news media to ordinary citizens in attendance at the rally for the Republican vice presidential candidate held at the Riverfront Sports Complex. He said Singleton was the only one to say he heard someone yell “kill him.”
“We have yet to find someone to back up the story,” Slavoski said. “We had people all over and we have yet to find anyone who said they heard it.”
Hackett said he did not hear the remark."
Lies, lies, and more lies. Race baiting and lies. That's the campaign in a nutshell.
Obama hammers McCain and implies that McCain intends to cut taxes for the rich and raise taxes on the middle class. The fact is, that's an outright falsehood.
McCain wants to keep the taxes EXACTLY THE SAME on the middle class. His plan is to preserve the last round of tax cuts and keep the nation's tax code as it is until we get through the financial crisis. Of course, we all know Obama wants to RAISE taxes on those who make more than $250k and increase corportate taxes, which can only lead to one conclusion (and economists say this, not me)
-increase in the cost of goods (corporations include their tax costs in the price of their goods and services and always have)
-less job creation (with less money at their disposal, companies and individuals are less likely to hire than they are to fire)
-less growth (why grow your company to earn MORE than $250k a year if it means getting taxed to the point that it is advantageous to make less than $250k?)
-redistribution of wealth (Obama's plan is to take from the rich and give that money to the poor by issuing the poor checks paid for by the rich - just for being an American)
-More fraud (businesses are likely to splinter off multiple companies to avoid paying more taxes - one company sells the product, another installs it, and another supports it - 3 companies filing individually, each with less than $250k a year in income)
All is not lost, America. My unscientific method of putting a 'NObama' sticker in my window has resulted in 100% approval and zero negative reaction.... People are literally honking at me until I roll down my window to tell me they love my sticker.
