    Rove: McCain went 'too far' in ads

    (CNN) -- Former Bush adviser Karl Rove said Sunday that Sen. John McCain had gone "one step too far" in some of his recent ads attacking Sen. Barack Obama.

    ...

    "In case anyone was still wondering whether John McCain is running the sleaziest, most dishonest campaign in history, today Karl Rove -- the man who held the previous record -- said McCain's ads have gone too far," said campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor, in a statement sent to reporters minutes after Rove's on-air comments.

    Amazing that Rove said this considering some of the things he has done and said in past elections.

    I was going to point this out, I saw this in my office before 11AM service and he actually said both sides are going one step too far in exaggerating against their opponents. He being a conservative won't say McCain has out done his opponent with out right lies but we all see the ads... :laugh:

    What's worse, McCain believes the lies to the point he tells them live as if we don't know he's lying (not as Gov). I think that's called a baldfaced lie which doesn't make sense.

    So did CNN.

    "(CNN) -- Former Bush adviser Karl Rove said Sunday that Sen. John McCain had gone "one step too far" in some of his recent ads attacking Sen. Barack Obama.

    Rove has leveled similar criticism against Obama."




    But in characteristically biased fashion, CNN only mentioned McCain in their headline.

    You don't know how right you are, McCain is now promising to match Obama's tax proposal. Then another empty promise to cut taxes on "literally everybody". Who would believe this guy now that he's stolen Obama campaign of change and now stealing his positions on the issues...

    No one with any sense was buying Obama's "campaign of change". Just like they're not buying McCain's.

    It may be worth noting that McCain, at least, has a history of bucking the Republican establishment.

    OTOH Obama toes the liberal line, except when he tries to out liberal all the others.

    You tell truth here Brother...

    What does that mean and what will it do for the country? What legislation will he pass to improve this mess? He has no vision or plan that I can see, just a promise to fight.

    The problem I see is the conservative philosophy has put the economy in a huge rut. We've given all these tax cuts to big business with the hopes the profits would trickle down but instead the trickle never happened. Now people are loosing their homes, jobs and means to survive. I'm voting to take from the rich (in the form of taxes) and give to the poor (in the form of social programs and economy bail outs). Those greedy executives never let the crumbs from their table fall down to us beggars (think Lazarus) so I guess we'll have to get the government to take it by force.

    As I said, I think this is the line we need at this time... :thumbs:

    Government forced redistribution of wealth is the goal of every communist, marxist and socialist I have ever heard of.

    Are you openly joining their ranks?

    In reality, we wouldn't need the liberal philosophy if man wasn't inherently greedy. We have an attitude of self importance and worry little about our Brother. It takes a hardened heart to tell a man with no boots to pull himself up by his bootstraps. What's happening in this country today is just that, we take a man's boots then tell him to pull himself up by his bootstraps. What's worse is the man who takes his boots has so many pairs he can never wear them all. It is only going to get worse. Financial institutions failing, inflation on the rise. It will only get worse.

    Since the "liberal philosophy" ,as you call it, sanctions stealing from others, I want no part of it.

    I'm on sound Biblical grounds and you're building your house on sand.

    If you want to give your money to whoever, God will bless you for it. If you want to steal what's mine to give to others, God will judge you for it.

    Using government to do your stealing for you will not lessen your judgement.

    Theft is still theft.

    LeBuick, the economy cannot sustain the government 'helping' every person to get off the street. This is something that Obama supporters really seem to be missing. The only way to make up for the budget deficit that we(nationally) is to cut spending, not increase spending. By saying we need to help the poor(I assume you are advocating wealth distribution or a government funded welfare program) you are placing a burden on our fragile economy that it cannot bare.

    Of course you could say we could cut spending by withdrawing from Iraq, Germany, North Korea, etc, but that would be a different topic.

    Voting with Bush 90% of the time isn't much of a 'buck'.

    Through the years I have always respected McCain because he came across as an honest, straight talking fellow. The lies and misinformation that has come out of his campaign have, to me, made him appear as just another power hungry, ambitious at any cost, politician. I think this is quite sad.

    Making fun of McCains inability to use a computer is pretty low.
