The Pathetic Obama/Biden Gaffe Machine Regarding The Physically Handicapped

Published by at 9:03 pm under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

A lot of people gasped at Joe Biden’s honest mistake recently when, at a campaign event, he called out a local Democrat leader – asking him to stand. Sad thing was, the man was confined to a wheel chair.

Earlier in the week, in Columbia, Missouri, Biden urged a paraplegic state official to stand up to be recognized.

“Chuck, stand up, let the people see you,” Biden shouted to State Senator Chuck Graham, before realizing, to his horror, that Graham uses a wheelchair. “Oh, God love ya,” Biden said. “What am I talking about?”

It was gasp of empathy at making an honest mistake. But just today the Obama campaign launched an attack ad against John McCain about his “lack of computer skills“:

John McCain is mocked as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate in a television commercial out Friday from Barack Obama as the Democrat begins his sharpest barrage yet on McCain’s long Washington career.

Emphasis mine. “Sharp” is rapidly becoming a term no one would label the Obama campaign with. In fact, terms like klutzy, imbecilic, sophomoric and clueless come to mind. Anyone with half a brain would want to do some checking, like Jonah Goldberg did, before going out and making wild accusations against someone with a physical disability:

McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes.

“Six months ago, no one would have pegged McCain as the most cybersavvy of this year’s crop of candidates. At 63, he is the oldest of the bunch and because of his war injuries, he is limited in his ability to wield a keyboard.”

The nutroots are in disbelief that The Messiah, The Omnipotent One would be caught taunting someone with a physical handicap – but there you have it.

This is the judgement required to run a country? This is the type of ‘serious debate on serious issues’ the Obama campaign wants to have with the Americanm people? This is why God sent the Messiah to America – to taunt the less fortunate? 

Another day, another O-Bomb. Folks, this race IS over. And if Obama cannot muster the backbone and character to offer a very public apology and mea culpa (don’t go blaming your staff again) it will be a blow out instead of a close loss. Obama is responsible for his campaign – remember this is the grand experience he has earned that makes him more qualified than a sitting governor. Obama is responsible for his decisions – no copping a ‘present’ attitude on this one. Obama’s claim to being a serious contender is over.

Now we are just trying to sort out how big a loser he and his careless, heartless, power-blind followers are.

I look forward to this January when we swear in President John McCain and Vice President (soon to be President) Sarah Palin. We dodged another bullet with our election process, which truly can sift the amateurs from those ready to lead. God Bless America – and all her people, with all their imperfections.

Update: Here is the ad – and what irony there is for the O-Bomba campaign to say we cannot afford another President who is ‘out of touch’!

And as usual, the deranged left confuse ‘knowing how to use’ a computer with ‘able to use’ a computer. This is the Beavis and Butthead campaign – all crude crud, nothing serious.

Update: Is this kind of shoot from the lip disaster bring confidence that Obama is the right man to have his finger on the nuclear trigger? Again, if the campaign is Obama’s example of his readiness to lead this nation he just failed the test.

    Just wondering….with Ike coming ashore in Texas, what would it look like now if Bush had opened the SPRO last month to temporary lower the price of gas. I can say one thing for sure…..the Dems live in the moment!

  2. tarpon says:

    It doesn’t take too much to realize that neither slo Joe nor the Obama campaign as a whole, have much knowledge of people with special needs. They are proving to be not very in touch with real people.

    You wonder how they would have treated FDR.

    They are just juvenile.

    Hillaries special opps at work inside the 0B0mber campaign?

    Is it still too late for the She Dog to come to the rescue of the Dem party?

    This is the same outfit that brought us hangin chads in 2000 so don’t get too cocky be awake, aware and as the Boy Scouts say”Be Prepared”.

    Lots of ACORN dead folks registered out there could be record numbers of voters even exceeding residents in some counties.

  4. Mike M. says:

    dhunter, it’s WAY too late. If the DNC left a metaphorical revolver loaded with one round on Obama’s desk, and he quit, the Dems would lose a large chunk of the African-American vote. They can’t win without that voting bloc.

    Yes, I anticipate efforts to steal the election…but it’s hard to steal it much. I have the suspicion that this election is turning into a 1972-style blowout.

    Via Forbes on McCain

    H/T Powerline

    In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate’s savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. “She’s a whiz on the keyboard, and I’m so laborious,” McCain admits

  6. Neo says:

    “So, when American workers hear John McCain talking about putting ‘Country First,’” Obama said, “it’s fair to ask –- which country?”

    Breathless coming from “The One”

  7. Toes192 says:

    I think the major test of a Presidential candidate is the ability to speak well in front of a teleprompter… but that’s just me

  8. Neo says:

    I assume that this ad will be “exhibit A” when confronted again with the Max Cleland campaign.

  9. VA Voter says:

    McCain should have his response ad out Monday morning sticking it to la’Bama.

    Biden should get a pass on his gaff, since it was truly an innocent mistake and could have happened to anyone.

  10. Terrye says:


    Something weird is happening with your site. The margins are off and the page is wrong. I think someone has been messing with you. Or something.

  11. missy1 says:

    This latest ad by Obama shows how crass and small he is. It can’t possibly help him in any demographic other than his koolaid drinking youthful voters or the rabid base he already has.

    A commentor on another site said McCain should put out a response ad with just a simple ROTFL. Just a bit of humor.

    I’ve been reading at Gateway Pundit about the dems being in charge of the supoenas in the trooper/Wooton case.

    The dems are suicidal on this one. I am not going to say how but just this:
    bring it on.

    As we used to say in the sales business:

    *A desperate salesman is a dead salesman*.

    LOL!!! How that shoe fits the o!

    “The Rasmussen Reports Balance of Power Calculator shows McCain leading in states with 200 Electoral College votes while Obama has the edge in states with 193 votes.. When “leaners” are included, shows Obama leading 259-247”

    McCain finally pulling ahead in electoral votes. He is still behind with “leaners” but it is nice to see McCain finally making progress on the electoral vote category.

  14. […] wave of their hands the waters will recede. The arrogance is stunning even from the outside. Recall the Obama ad belittling McCain because he can’t use a keyboard (not because he doesn’t understand how to use email)? […]

  15. WWS says:

    Cross, I was playing with an interactive electoral map last night, and McCain is getting very close to having it locked up.

    Start with the states where McCain is solidly ahead today – add Ohio and Florida, which both look like they are breaking solidly for McCain now. McCain just needs Pennsylvania and Virginia to seal the deal. (Rasmussens 259 total for Obama gives Pennsylvania to him)

    And if McCain – Palin do well in the debates and pull in the less likely swing states – michigan, wisconsin, minnesota, new hampshire, washington – then this could turn into a 350 electoral vote blowout. But McCain could lose all of those and still win if the gets Pa. and Va. McCain has several ways to get to 270 – Obama is going to have to run the table of the remaining battleground states to make it.

    I think I know why Team Obama is getting desperate.

  16. […] DNC or some group of liberal power brokers. I think the fact the O-Bomba campaign stands by an ad mocking McCain’s physical injuries he incurred on behalf of this nation is a sign that the campaign is lost in anger and frustration. […]
