Well at least he has a plan for them, even if it is stupid.

Obama would have just told the people they "need change" and done a little hip-hop dance move.




Because he's black.... I get it...... funny

If I had coffee to spew out of my mouth when I read this I would have.

These people disgust me... ebay as a solution to poverty indeed.

Do we need any more proof McCain is clueless?

They can sell the coal on ebay. Get school children to sculpt the lumps into a bust of John McCain and sell them on ebay. It will work because they are famous now and forever linked with McCain.

i don't think mccain thinks through what he says...and that is the scariest part for me...this is such a big verbal blunder that it's leading me to believe he is being deliberately set up to lose! ...nawww....wouldn't happen in this country ...right?...my cynicism has risen to a new level. the republicans knowing they have no chance of winning in 08' tossed mccain a bone, so he'll shut the hell up for the rest of his term in the senate after he loses. and after bushs treatment of the press, they will be loaded for bear against obama when he wins

McCain is a Bush Clone. The latest fad in Republican wannabe presidents
is to utter mindless drible and shock people.

Speaking of shock, its not just for Republicans anymore... I love Obamas new seal..he forgot to place A.C. someplace in there (anti-christ)!!!

I love these choices we have!! They're precious!!!

"Get rich quick with E-Bay"

Oh lord! Whats to become of us?

Raised white, possibly born to an Arab man.

He isn’t black.

No, I said that because he has no real message other "change" and does hip-hop dance moves during speeches.

People aren't raised a particular race. People are raised Catholic, Protestant, vegetarian and so on. Skin color and ethnic background are there when you're born. He was raised by an interracial family. His father was African. He is by definition, and African American.

You mean like this?


He does have plans for change, but that's meant for another thread. This one is about how McCain has no idea what poverty is, or means, or what its impact is on so much of the US population.

He does have plans? I wonder when he will share them with the rest of us.

One of the two is going to be POTUS, you will not be able to have a conversation about one without the other being brought up. Get used to it.

Christ.

Every time McCain opens his mouth, I cringe. It sucks for me, since I think he's very much the lesser of evils (though I still hate him). Obviously McCain didn't mean to be insincere - I think he was trying to show a small business opportunity or different ways to make an income independent of government aid.

But the media hates him and loves taking "sound-bites" out of context.
And McCain loves giving them.

That video was the saddest thing I have seen in a long, long while. Seriously.

Was that a video of a Saturday Night Live skit? Those can't be real administration officials right?
It is bad enough when suburban white teenagers try to look like gangstas, but this is something out of a really out of control acid trip. I want to see Karl Rove doing that dance in south central LA.

No, I wish that were true.


Unfortunately enough the video is quite real

He'd be a European African American... By definition. However, Obama's father was black African.

If McCain had been President Johnson's opponent, I suppose he would have said that the way out of poverty would have been to sell at swap meets


And then when Americans can no longer buy things on eBay, because they have to buy food and fuel, what then? Try porn sites?

I am reminded of a Saturday Night Live skit from the 70's.

It had Carter getting up on the podium and saying in a heavy southern drawl...

... "My fellow Americans... You're on your own. Good night."

I always thought that would have been more accurate if it had been Reagan... after all it is the Republican approach.

What a stupid idiot this McCain guy is.

I can't stand eBay. I am a Search Engine Marketer and I hate it so much. The first problem is that poor people don't generally have computers. I guess they could all go to the library. But they don't have packaging. I guess they could wait behind grocery stores for cardboard boxes and root through dumpsters for packing materials. But they don't have the money it costs to ship these packages out! PayPal takes money out of your checking account and doesn't add their funds for days.

I could go on, but i won't. The only way for poor people go improve in this economy is to go rob McCains houses.

The plan is this, when they get all the poor-ish people to use ebay they will start taxing them on it.

Any really poor people that are on benefits will get their benefits cut for selling the junk in the attic.


I'll bet that the UKs PM gordon brown will love that idea.

All politicians seem to be living on some other planet!

n Martin County, Kentucky this week, John McCain added another one his "Forgotten Places" to the growing list of places his campaign would now like to forget. With a straight face, McCain told the residents of the economically devastated region that eBay represents their economic future. And he did so by appropriating the words of Meg Whitman, who just happens to be not only McCain's national campaign co-chair, but the former CEO of eBay.

Whats wrong with this??? If you've got extra stuff then you should sell it, if your that hungry you would!!! MCcain is a true patriot like myself, we shouldn't depend on the government for everything- Free Market people - You can make a pretty penny selling all kinds of stuff on ebay - forks,dvds and couches...Us your imagination people- this is a real solution to a real problem-- all Obama wants to do is raise taxes! I mean Clinton should have killed Osama when he had the chance, which he did.

Keep our taxes low !!!
