In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.
"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said.
"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."
What is this? Does he really think he is some kind of messiah? He wants his disciples to go thee forth and "make his case" by.... lying? I remember the first time I started hearing about Obama, about January or February this year, I actually read in the newspaper his own quote that he will raise taxes by 12 percent for those making 97k a year or more. I kid you not. I wrote a blog about this on my myspace shortly after I read that quote. And the whole second amendment thing-- I do not have a direct quote but his actions speak louder than words as he repeatedly voted to keep guns banned in his own city of Chicago. (Which by the way is a real bummer that he represents Chicago because I love the Chicago Bears. Now they are tainted.)
It seems a little Hilterian to "talk to your friends and neighbors...talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican" as if he wants them to wear a big R or I to differentiate them from "us." (didn't the Jews wear the Star of David shortly before they were led into the big gas chambers?) His parallel of Hitler is frightening.
And I dare a liberal to get in the face of any member of my family. Between my parents, my brother and I, we own about nine rifles, one shotgun, and six handguns. Not to mention the knives and swords. Yeah, I dare you to get in my face and argue a case for Obama bin Biden.
