Just yesterday, Obama's Media team released 'talking points' to the media, just 12 hours before the debate. The memo's content corresponds to what the media is already doing to portray McCain as "unstable" and "old" and Obama as a "leader on issues."
The Media Lapdogs-for-Obama were given their marching orders, and they're very busy doing their Master's Work.

While McCain clearly won the debate last night, I fear that most of the Obama-bots were unconvinced because they're voting for him because they've bought in to the slick package of fluff that IS Barack Hussein Obama. McCain brought up ACORN and for good reason. This group is a tax-free criminal organization that is busy registering tens of thousands of ghost voters.
And while we're discussing Obama's propaganda, let's take a peek at Obama's tax proposals. Basically Obama's plan will equate to bigger government and a tax increase for almost all of us.
The Tax Policy Group, a non-partisan group releases study showing Obama's tax cut is actually a tax increase. If you read the study, you'll notice that 50% of taxpayers won't pay ANY TAXES - that means if you make between $30-75,000 per year; you won't see any tax reduction.
|The Tax Policy Center estimates that Obama’s spending proposals will be so large that they effectively eliminate income taxes for 15 million households, increasing the percentage of households that pay no taxes from 37.8 percent to 48.1 percent.Obama’s biggest refund, and the one most likely to go to non-taxpayers, is his Making Work Pay credit, which would give $500-$1000 to everyone making under $200-250,000 a year. This proposal, which the Tax Policy Center says is “intended to offset the regressivity of payroll taxes,” would cost taxpayers $323.4 billion during Obama’s first term, if elected. When compared with current law, people earning $20,000-$50,000 a year will see their effective tax rates -- the amount of money the taxpayer actually ends up paying the government -- increase on average under Obama’s plan, according to Tax Policy Center figures.Most households making $30,000-$75,000 will not see a reduction in their taxes under Obama’s plan relative to current law, according to the Center. In fact, the only strata that will see a majority of its effective tax burden reduced under Obama are those making less than $30,000 per year and those making $75,000-$200,000 per year.|
Go read the whole article.
This is nothing more than a massive redistribution of wealth and is a grandiose welfare scheme. Obama and his minions love to blame the government and say that government is "broken". It's laughable that Obama's only solution to having a broken government is to CALL FOR MORE GOVERNMENT!
