Obama's tax plan hits $200,000 and up
Obama plans "a tax increase for everyone earning more than $42,000 a year."
Sure, and blame Obama for bad tomatoes, too
"Who can you thank for rising prices at the pump? O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma!"
Not perfect with all the veterans
"I have a perfect voting record from organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion and all the other veterans service organizations."
Obama shifts emphasis on Iraq but not position
Barack Obama has "reversed" on his commitment "to begin withdrawing American troops from Iraq immediately."
McCain's argument tangential at best
"If you have an investment for your child's education or own a mutual fund or a stock in a retirement plan, (Obama) is going to raise your taxes."
No consensus on Iran's nuke program
"The Iranians continue – in the view of every objective observer – continue to pursue the acquisition of nuclear weapons."
No relief at pump here and now
"We must deal with the here and now and assure affordable fuel for America by increasing domestic production."
Two wrongs don't make a right
Sen. Obama wants to "enact the single largest tax increase since the Second World War."
McCain twists Obama's words
Iran "might not be a superpower, but the threat the government of Iran poses is anything but 'tiny,'" as Obama says.
They have. Yours, in fact
"They (Clinton and Obama) have never to my knowledge been involved in legislation nor hearings nor engagement on this issue (climate change)."
The budget resolution isn't that clear
Democrats' budget resolution would raise America's tax bill by "$500-billion."
Saying 'no experience' is no fair
Obama "has no experience or background at all in national security affairs."
Costumes, yes, but not Halloween
The Jewish holiday Purim is "their version of Halloween here."
Iran and al-Qaida don't agree on religion
It's "common knowledge" that al-Qaida is receiving training from Iran.
When first means second
"I won the majority of the Republican vote in both New Hampshire and South Carolina."
There are a few blips on the record
"I have never asked for nor received a single earmark or pork barrel project for my state."
McCain led the charge, but he wasn't alone
"I supported (the surge), I argued for it. I'm the only one on this stage that did."
McCain trips on word "everybody"
"Another one he should veto is the SCHIP program, which he should say 'Take the C out of, because now it's for everybody, like every other entitlement program.'"
"We spent $223-million on a bridge in Alaska to an island with 50 people on it."
