Michelle Obama: Barack will FINALLY unveil his plan Friday!

The Obama campaign is all kinds of gung-ho about the debate Friday. They really, really want people to tune in. Why, I don't know. If, uh, you know, I, um, were, well, uh, you know, uh, Senator -- hold, hold, hold on a second -- um, you know, Senator Obama, I, uh, you know, um, wouldn't, uh, um, uh, want to be, uh, debilitating, I mean, debating, uh, you know, um, Senator McCain, uh, um, uh, on, uh, national Univision -- damn it!! -- national television, that's it!, uh, you know, without, um, a, uh, teleprompter, uh, that, um, you know, he could, uh, read his, you know, um, prepared, uh, lines off of.

But, apparently they still want everyone to watch. They must be pretty anxious about it, judging by the two e-mails they sent Michelle Malkin urging her not only to watch the debate, but to host debate watch parties. And, miracle of miracles, Michelle Obama is telling us that Barack is finally going to tell us what his plans are!


Hi everyone, this is Michelle Obama. The first presidential debate is coming up on Friday, the 26th. It's gonna focus on foreign policy. The candidates will debate their different views on how to keep America safe, strengthen our relationships with our allies, and restore our role in the world. Many Americans still don't know much about Barack or his plan to bring the change we need. They don't know about his timeline to bring troops home from Iraq responsibly, or his plans to rebuild our military and to achieve energy independence so that we can end our reliance on foreign oil once and for all. And they don't know his plan to restore the middle class, to cut taxes for 95% of American families, to provide healthcare for every American, and to improve our schools. They also don't know that John McCain shares many of George Bush's views. In fact, he's voted with George Bush more than 90% of the time, including not investigating the government response to Katrina, not supporting college benefits for returning veterans, and passing tax cuts for the rich at the expense of the middle class. So, this debate is a great opportunity to introduce Barack to your friends, family, and neighbors. That's why all across the country, people are coming together for debate watch parties. A debate watch party is a great opportunity to get together with other people who support Barack, and to reach out to folks who are undecided. That's what this movement's all about: people coming together to talk about the issues that matter to them. So, I hope you'll host a debate watch party in your home, or attend one in your community. Visit this website to get more information: my-dot-barackobama-dot-com-slash-debate. You know, there are just a few weeks left 'til election day, so now more than ever, we need to come together. Thank you.

The "no one knows about Barack's plans!" line was a little odd to me. Considering how vague and unspecific Obama has been throughout this entire campaign, you'd think they didn't want to go there. And lies and mischaracterizations about John McCain aside, the plans she speaks of are just plain odd. I'm really, really curious how Barack Obama will manage to "rebuild" the military, "give" healthcare to EVERY American, "improve" schools, and "restore" the middle class -- all without raising taxes. Either he believes in money fairies or Michelle is lying.

Oh, but wait! He's finally going to get specific about his plans this Friday! He's going to finally tell us exactly how he's going to raise taxes, enforce socialism, make the standard model for "big government" seem like a libertarian's dream, and ruin everything we've fought for in Iraq.

I'm so excited. I can't wait to hear all these great plans Obama has. It's going to be so awesome.

Hey, you guys laughing in the back -- can it. He's for real this time. I know he's said he's going to get specific for a long time, but this time, he means it.

I think.

Nothing will be "unveiled" on Friday. His plans have been on his web site for some time. If you're one of the ones who still doesn't know about them, go read them.

I'm sorry, Spider - but taking from the rich to give to the poor as a financial plan doesn't cut it for me. Instad, how about letting the rich keep more, so they can hire more people and pay them better - so everyone wins?

1)He's going to limit Wall Street exec's pay.
2)He's going to make Wall Street pay back the bailout out money (actually, that could be interesting; wonder if there is room under that bus for Raines, Gorelick and Johnson?)
3)He's going to throw Biden under the bus.
4)He's going to pardon computer hackers.
5)He's going to veto McCain Feingold (oops, I meant pardon those in violation)
6)He's going pardon AstroAxel.
7)He's going to raise taxes on Wall Street (after they pay back the bailout money).

It's a shame the media hasn't given Barack more coverage so that he'd have been able to get his message about his plan out. (/sarcasm)

His plan could be "I'm not nor have I ever been George W. Bush" and he'd still be a better, more popular candidate than John McCain. But as Brian mentioned, the specifics of his economic plan are on his website. You can go check it out; don't worry, you won't be forced to give your e-mail address or pledge your allegiance to Gay Liberal Satan just for having a look. Words won't hurt you.

For instance, his tax plan will only raise taxes on the 2% of Americans who earn more than $250,000 per year. That might seem unfair to some people here, but this crowd is way out of the mainstream so it doesn't matter.

Posted by Son of a Pig and a Monkey, What ever gave you the idea that anyone other than the taxpayers paid one cent on Hussein and the Ms's education cost? 100% on the taxpayer because I'm black program, even though Hussien is White/Arab, not black.

I can see the tax cuts for 95% of American families now. Last year you paid $3,000, under Hussein O you'll pay $5,000 +. Only To the feeble minded if that a tax cut.

There are times when I wonder if he watched Blazing Saddles one too many times when he was experimenting with mind altering substances and thinks he can pull off a fast one on the crowd that wants to lynch him. Since the scene has too many politically incorrect phrases, I'll just end with:

He's Arabic, Scrapiron? (By the way, Arabic is the adjective, Arab is a noun. Write that down for future racial bomb throwing, mmmkay?) I think the unsubstantiated rumour you're trying to puke up is that he's Muslim. Muslims and Arabs are not the same thing.

Re-read the second paragraph of your post there, and then ask yourself: 'Should I really be huffing this much glue?' Unless you make more than $250,000/year (no offense, but that would come as a surprise), you would pay less taxes. Yes, the evil sorta-kinda-black-and-maybe-Muslim guy wants to lower your tax rate, while making your psychiatrist pay more.

You want to hear about an incredibly stupid and unrealistic plan for the economy? Find a single economist that could make any sense of McCain's plan to cut taxes while balancing the budget. Such horseshit, but go on, lap it up.

His plans are vague, point out problems he says he'll solve (usually by throwing large amounts of money and Federal bureaucracy at the problem, and we all know how successful that approach has been in the past) and panders to the voters he wants. BFD. No more substance to his plan. McCain's site looks about the same, but has at least specific information about his tax plan compared to the vague overall plan with a few anecdotal examples in the Obama site. Neither have a real handle on how to reform healthcare, but the Obama plan is REAL scary from what is listed. I doubt the debate will answer these details for either candidate.

HOWEVER, it will be interesting to see each one show his ability to project an image in the "debate" setting, which resembles a real debate about as much as a pig in lipstick resembles a hockey mom wielding an automatic weapon.

When michelle says he plans to "rebuild" our military, does that mean take 40% away like bill did? Just watching her talk about it makes me cringe. The only thing obama is less qualified for than running the political side of the white house would be the commander in chief part of the job.

Maggie, as for capital migrating to friendlier climates, so what? That's fine. It's called globalization, via capitalism. Welcome to the year 1980! Hire a Mandarin tutor for your kids, they'll thank you when they're rich by 2008.

I'm aware that reducing tax rates can sometimes increase total receipts. I also know that if John McCain's plan will give working class people $200 in annual tax savings, and Obama's plan will give them $800 (rough approximations of what I learned from Brian's link, which is based on the Tax Policy Center's research), that John McCain will lose the election. His wife doesn't need a tax cut. Do the American people agree?

By the way, I owe you an apology, Scrapiron. I asked an Israeli friend and Arab is indeed an adjective. Arabic is usually used to refer to the language. But the point stands: nobody that I'm aware of except you has ever asserted that Obama is part Arab. Muslims are of many ethnicities, including 'black', like Obama's father. (Arabs are not 'black', though some Afro-Arabs live in Africa, like the Janjaweed in Darfur.) Straighten out your religious and ethnic bigotry, please.

Feeding the masses, healing the maimed and

Jesus a community organizer. He was nomadic
all of His mission time, 3 years.
He did not form social clubs, organize mass
protests, and he did not command groups to
come together to work on making homes cleaner,
safer, and more modern. You are deliberately
twisting who He was, and what He did into
somthing it never was.
His mission on earth was to save souls.

Brian Richard Allen:

Arabic, "hyperbolist," is a noun.

And is neither a person nor a characteristic. It is a language.

While meanwhile, back here in America's Marxist mobbed-up-union stamping grounds - AKA "classrooms" - the also mobbed up Marxist murtadd Muslim Arab-African anti-American, B Milhous bin B Hussayn bin Hussayn Muhummud Ubama (whose entire life has been dedicated to the repudiation of both his "white" half and to throwing under buses the likes of his mother and his grandparents, to the hatred of everything American, to despising the Freedoms and the Capitalism that make us great, to the cultivation of his totalitarian financiers, the honing of his fasciSSocialistic ways and to becoming professionally "black") -- and wherever else he happens to be -- is still an Arab.

Brian Richard Allen:

You're spot on, burt, in suspecting this creepy Jim-Jonesesque B Milhous Ubambi thing seems cult-like and that it is begining to stink like Jonestown the day after the grape juice.

But you ain't seen nothing yet and won't until November 5, when, upon their realization of his ignominious defeat, the self-declared messiah's scores of thousands of terroristic totalitarians -- ACORNs and others -- will have begun to spread their hatred and their rage at his defeat throughout our beloved fraternal republic. And, worse, when, their massive electoral frauds having failed them, his extended Crime family's thousands of lawyers launch their long and carefully conspired-about attacks upon our electoral process.

Then the true nature of everything these truly evil people represent will be revealed for all of us to see.

Including that we see that not the mobbed up Marxist murtadd Muslim, B Milhous, nor his loathsome and fearsome spouse, MicHelda, nor yet a single one of those in thrall to them (a cult being defined by its adherents blindness to reality and inability to even see its failings, let alone to learn from them) see a damned thing but that America is rotten and has failed them, every one!

God save us.

God bless our beloved America.

Libs seem to think that BO's tax increase on those who earn more than $250K will solve the worlds ills. As a small business owner, I and thousands like me would be in that "out of the mainstream" group, and would likely be forced to shut down and lay off our employees. How will that help the economy?
What it will do is this: close down small businesses like mine and allow me to drop back under the $250K bracket and ultimately save me money. Is that how we plan to "rebuild America"? By destroying small and medium businesses? Tell me that won't hasten the switch to moving companies overseas.
