Republican hate - Florida style
Thanks to Pensito Review for this.
Pompano Beach, Florida. The McCain campaign office.
Hanging on the wall is a poster, titled "Barack Hussein Obama." Underneath that title, these words: "This is the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Join with me as we change it." -- Barack Obama.
McCain says his people should not denigrate Senator Obama. Then McCain does just that. As does Sarah Palin. Wonder why his people around the country have evidently not gotten the word?
You'll notice the post equates Obama with Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Fidel Castro.
Isn't that funny?
The "official" Republican response was predictable. Chip LaMarca, chairman of the Broward [County] Republican Party said the poster "disgusted" him and that he would hightail it up to Pompano Beach and take it down!
We don't "condone" such things, said LaMarca. Right.
Do you really think that LaMarca had not seen or heard of this poster before it was "brought" to his attention?
No. As we have seen, this expression hate-filled bile, this character-assassination is typical of too many local Republican units all over the United States; the result, as we suggested, of the type of campaigning engaged in by both John and Sarah.
And isn't it interesting that the Obama camp does NOT respond in kind, either nationally or locally.
