STURGIS, S.D. - Thousands of motorcyclists greeted Republican presidential candidate John McCain with an approving roar Monday as he sought blue-collar and heartland support by visiting a giant motorcycle rally.
"As you may know, not long ago a couple hundred thousand Berliners made a lot of noise for my opponent. I'll take the roar of 50,000 Harleys any day," McCain said, referring to Democrat Barack Obama's recent visit to the German capital.
Billed as the largest event of its kind in the world, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has become something of an annual bikers' Woodstock during the past 70 years. It features nine nights of entertainment, with bands including Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyrd and REO Speedwagon.
McCain played to a crowd that paused for a veterans salute. He criticized Obama for supporting a timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq while opposing efforts to reduce record-high energy prices. "My opponent wants to set a date to come home. I want us to come home with victory and honor so we will never go back again," the Arizona senator said.Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

McCain is pulling all the right strings. Obama will counter when he shows up at a fag parade in San Fran or some other queer spot.:eek:

McCain at Sturgis PICS
This will be the McCain (MSM) counter to the Obama Berlin shot
His big line here was something like "I'll take the roar of 50,000 Harleys over 200,000 Berliners any day"book_worm Donating Member (1000+ posts)
5. Nice way to put down our allies--I think responsible journalists should really take him to task for
that. In effect he is saying the sound of 50,000 harleys is better than 200,000 Germans cheering a potential American president while many of them are holding American flags. I know if Obama had said this he would be raked over the coals by the media.
Better 50,000 that can VOTE for you than 200,000 beer swillers!

"McCain gets big welcome by drunk white trash"
- A more appropriate title. After all, isn't this the same sturgis with the fake orgasm contest, massive disorderly arrests, and 50 yr old topless women?**** Obama and **** you too.

McCain at Sturgess is no different than Obama attending the now defunct FREAKNIK
Black folks and Atlantans know what I'm talking about. Can you imagine if Obama went to Freaknik as a candidate? There would be hell to pay.
