This is for all the naysayers who say there is no difference between McSame and Obama.
“I don’t know how much you know about my grandfather’s administration,” Eisenhower said. “But that administration stood for multilateral engagement, balancing the budget. They were the party of civil rights, they were the party of environmental progress. That was the Republican Party of the 1950s. I think you can make the case that doesn’t sound like the Republican Party we know today. If you look at the way Obama’s run his campaign, to how Hillary Clinton ran her campaign, or even how John McCain’s campaign is shaping up — you can definitely say that Obama’s running his campaign in a way an Eisenhower Republican would have run his campaign.
“He raises a lot of money,” Eisenhower, 56, said, by way of explaining the similarities she sees between her grandfather and the likely Democratic nominee. “He has very little debt. I just love it. Anybody who wants to make him out as this wide-eyed liberal — I just don’t see any evidence for that, not in the way he runs his campaign. And this tells you a lot about how he can administer things, how he manages things, how he deals with situations.
“This race is very similar to the 1952 campaign that brought my grandfather to power,” Eisenhower said, continuing the comparison. “He was an outsider who was nominated by the Republican Party — but it was not an easy process at all. He was an outsider who threatened to shake up the party itself.”
Or how about this one?
A group of prominent Republicans supporting Barack Obama took to a conference call Tuesday morning to tout their preferred candidate, make the case for other GOPers to cross party lines, and warn about the dangers of John McCain’s foreign policy.
Hoping to fill a void in news with Senator Obama on vacation, former Rep. Jim Leach, former Sen. Lincoln Chafee and Rita Hauser (a national intelligence expert who served in the Bush administration), offered at times sharp lines of criticism for the presumptive Republican nominee.
“I served with Sen. McCain, and he and I were the only two to vote against the Bush/Cheney tax cuts,” recalled Chafee. “During this campaign it is a different John McCain. He is saying he would make the tax cuts permanent. He is advocating more drilling whereas he voted against drilling in ANWR. It goes to his credibility. And that is such an important issue for this country… plus his foreign policy has been consistently with Bush/Cheney and I know from my perspective that is a huge issue for the United States.”
Here is a MAJOR DIFFERENCE between Obama & McCain…..Obama brings people together as demonstrated by these GOPers. McSame divides people with lies, hypocrisy, fear and hate.
And in my opinion, that’s a BIG difference!
Former Rep. Jim Leach of Iowa was among Republicans the Obama campaign said were crossing party lines to support Obama. The Illinois senator’s campaign said he was also being backed by the Republican mayor of Fairbanks North Star Borough, Alaska, Jim Whitaker. The campaign did not release the names of other GOP supporters or the size of the group.
“I’m convinced that the national interest demands a new approach to our interaction with the world,” Leach, a foreign service officer before being elected to Congress, said in a conference call with reporters.
Apparently there are some Republicans who think there is a Difference as well!
