McCain Versus Obama Supporters – Photos

We thought it would be enlightening to show how wire service photographers are portraying the two Presidential candidates’ supporters.

First, the lonely, angry and negative redneck backers of John McCain:

Shouts of “terrorist” and “treason” aimed at Barack Obama have echoed around Republican rallies, whipping up into alarming, hate-filled frenzies against the Democratic White House hopeful.

Versus, the multitudinous happy and uplifted diverse supporters of Barack Obama:

Addressing a sea of 100,000 supporters Saturday, Obama fired back against White House rival John McCain on taxes and toxic campaign messages 17 days out from election day.

The most amazing thing here is that a wire service photographer was able to find someone at an Obama rally who was carrying an American flag.

And speaking of our one party media’s bias:

Who can blame them?

    You wanna see a angry McCain supporter…..Wait and see if they steal away the election! They are doing it right under our noses and in plain sight!!

    The powers that be are helping them do it!!

    Big “0” lose his 14-points lead, remaining him only a 3-point advantage. The “race”, so to say, is neck-tied. But, in Brazil as in USA, MSM is left-winged to the bone, and of the worst sort. Obviously, they sell out the marvels of “0” by the highest price, and hide whatever can be hidden about good news for McCain.

    A sample: when I heard about the drop of “0” in the polls, it was reported that the error margin of the poll was 2.9%. “2.9%”??? it’s not an error margin, it’s so exact…

    surely the error margin was to be sacrificed, lest they had to say McCain still have a chance.

    The picture of Obama in a wide angle next to the St. Louis Arch versus McCain against a cloudy and gloomy sky says it all.

    Obama is a cool character, but a poker face can’t hide everything. He’s noticeably thinner than at the start of the campaign, and his hair is turning gray, both signs of stress. His defense is to keep up the cool facade, hence the reason McCain had so much trouble nailing him in the debate. The key is not to play poker with him but play chess. Nail him down on questions that require definite answers, make positive comparisons on things he is negative on, and above all never lose temper with him. I think regarding Obama as a flyweight who can’t pass the test makes him angrier than being yelled at for his terrorist “neighbor.”

    Ah. but the debates have passed already. I say counter the media, anyone who was at these rallies and has photos that show McCain supporters in a positive light to post them anywhere they can. even mail them in to the MSM and see if they might slip up and publish one.

    In Steve’s immortal words. “What media bias?”

    If they wanna see ugly wait until Obama wins or loses, Obama’s base will riot either way!
    Any bet takers out there?

  6. JohnMG says:

    …..”Any bet takers out there?….”

    A line from the movie “The Gambler”…….’That’s a fool’s bet, Mr. Stowbridge’.

  7. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

    “The “race”, so to say, is neck-tied”


    The correct term is “neck and neck” to describe a tight race. The Obama campaign is very touchy about anyone using the terms “race” and “neck-tied” together. (I’m kidding of course, even though it’s true.)

  8. dulcimergrl says:

    It looks like the people in the 5th Obama worshipper picture are seeing an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Compare their expressions to the children’s in “The Song of Bernadette”. Scary!

  9. nhavar says:

    Since when did hope become such a negative. Since when did being inspired by someone become a bad thing. The gentleman is not satan, nor is he Stalin/Marx, nor is he Hitler. He’s a Harvard educated, well liked, affluent, influential, United States Senator – something that many of us might have our children aspire to be.

    You are playing part in the very same negative types you are railing against. Which might mean that the supposed “MSM” is right. Maybe the McCain campaign supporters are desperate, angry, frustrated people. The only way to counter that view is to show that you are anything but angry or desperate.

    Instead of acting like twelve year olds making up names like “Oblahblah” and “Oblamo” or “O’Lamo” you should act like responsible adults and show the man the respect due a United States Senator and Presidential front runner. Maybe, just maybe, you should espouse the positive benefits of your chosen candidate with the same vigor and excitement and inspiration that Obama supporters do… or is it that your chosen candidate can only inspire hate and fear? The only way you can prove the “MSM” wrong is by acting differently.

    Don’t play the victim, complaining about how the MSM unfairly portrays you as racist, bigoted, angry rednecks, while at the same time spouting about the oppositions supporters rioting, promoting wild conspiracy theories, talking about stolen elections without proof, booing the media, repeating gossip as the gospel, or denigrating inspired supporters as “Obama worshippers”, That’s not helpful to your cause or your candidate.

    Be a help to your candidate and your cause.

    show the man the respect due a United States Senator and Presidential front runner. Uh, I would be happy to, if somehow he and his adoring minions would try to do the same. He is a senator in name only, and a front runner due to massive fraud and the media’s inability to be honest or fair.

    While you sit there and fret about name calling and disrespect, we sit here and watch this country and it’s society being rapidly eroded by people who’s ideas of utopia and nirvana dont match the realities of the world situation.

    Because of people like you, this country will become a sitting duck for those who hate our collective guts, meaning over 80 percent of the planet. If you think for one minute that showing this smooth talking charismatic yet totally unqualified to be president respect will somehow make everything all nicey nice, you are deluding yourself as much as his followers.

    No, he isnt Hitler, or Stalin. He just plays them on TV. His education means squat, his ability to rise to power out of nowhere with no experience is appalling. The fact that people fall for it so totally means its a damn good thing he doesnt possess the mesmerizing oratory of Hitler, or the iron fist totalitarianism of Stalin. They were men. They ruled with strength. Nobody groomed them, paid for them, or paid the media to paint them in a favorable light. Anyone who was critical, was in critical condition within the day. Try saying Hussein! It’s just shy of a crime. Try saying anything negative about him. You are an immediate bigot and racist. He has it made, and he knows it.

    The world has already seen the folly of electing people who are charismatic. It doesnt mean a damn thing when it gets down to the real deal. So yeah, you can condemn everyone here for what they say and how they say it. That’s your right. But you cannot put yourself in the shoes of real Americans who love their country enough to recognize the biggest danger to our subjugation in history.

    Obama is a figurehead. The real rulers are in congress…the leaders of both House and Senate. The billions of dollars poured into keeping the democrats in power arent coming from the people either, it is coming from overseas. Foreign nations have a huge stake in who wins this election. They will purchase this election no matter what the cost, because the reward is an America that is essentially neutered…and thus vulnerable to control from abroad.

    So say what you will about your hero….and scold us all you wish. You are one of the reasons Obama will win. Oh, and we could really give a sh*t what you think about the names we give him. He is still horribly ashamed of his own..Hussein…so what’s the big deal? Oh, yeah, Harvard, Senator, front runner…yeah, that’s a great reason to respect a hustler…..not.

  11. JohnMG says:

    nhavar; aka, Barack H. Obama

  12. GuppyNblue says:

    Very well put.
    “Oh, and we could really give a sh*t what you think about the names we give him.” That jumped out and hammered the point down. I was just going to mention how unworthy our senators are of respect but you brought the whole show.

  13. Lipstick on a PIAPS says:

    HOPE became a BIG NEGATIVE when you liberals hoped to get into MY WALLET!! He is not as well liked as you and the media believe except by losers who think that Barak Huessein NOBAMA really cares and is going to take care of you. It’s true he is not Marx but only a bumbling imitation in which we cannot even THINK about risking sending him to the White House. It’s Bad enough this anal opening is in the Senate of the United States but hell no for the White House! Hope this helps! ;-)
