The Democratic Convention was quite the event this week. It is hard to see how the Republicans can top what the Democrats have done. But I am sure they will resort to their negative tactics and fear-mongering to try and reverse all the excitement and inspiration from this week.
Obama amazed me last night. He said everything he needed to say and told John McCain “If you want to debate on temperament and judgement, that is a debate I will show up for.” It was what people who doubted him needed to hear. Anyone who doesn’t think he is ready to lead needs to look at the past 8 years and see... (more)
...his own political death. I didn’t do a thing, if that’s what you’re getting at. He is still breathing you know. And his wife, well, that wasn’t me either.
AM: Yes of course, I’m sorry I wasn’t clear. I meant what about John McCain and Barack Obama? Who do you think will be chosen as their running mates?
Death: Funny, they ought to just team up together: the mortals. One is a hot-head, one is cool-Joe. That balance has worked well for Satan and me. Look at him now in this incredible heat, hooves all over that black asphalt!... (more)
...the peacekeepers, not that we are much of ones ourselves.
John McCain said this week, and I am recalling from memory, that one country should never take force over another country. WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING IN IRAQ? The hypocrisy seems to pain me, if I were McCain, and if I were Obama, I would never even touch this issue unless it was asked. Becoming the next President of the United States with a target on your head from Russia, is not a great thing.
I seemingly don’t understand how some Americans can go around with their heads up there asses, and not... (more)
...asked if He (or She, so cryptically I couldn't discern the difference) had a female running mate would I vote for the combined ticket. I responded " If the politics matched my own I would have no problem". These are not unlike the responses that are repeated all across America daily. Barack Obama seems to have had a comfortable 2-6 point lead against his AARP qualified opponent every day for the last 45 of national tracking.
Yet, there is a difference. Everyone cares about projecting political correctness during a survey. We love to speak passionately about saving the evironment ... (more)
The article raised serious questions about Obama’s judgment and truthfulness, and his less then impressive record within the Senate.
There’s no doubt that Obama is an incredible orator and showman and not since President John F. Kennedy’s impassioned “Ask not what your country can do for you” speech, have I witnessed such an outpouring of devotion for a politician, and perhaps that’s the dilemma Obama finds himself in.
While his core base of black and predominately young liberal and affluent white voters are solidly behind Obama’s candidacy.... (more)
Last week Barack Obama said that Americans could lower their demand for gas and oil if they would “get regular tune ups and inflate their tires.”
When America stopped laughing itself stupid over Obama’s brilliant energy plan, people began ridiculing him – not because properly inflated tires are a legitimate fuel conservation tactic, but because Obama thinks Americans are that stupid. All he did was prove how much of a moron he is.
First of all, half of his recommendation does not apply to the majority of cars on the road today. How long has it been since you thought... (more)
Now let me get this straight. Kathy Hilton, the mother of Hotel Heiress Paris Hilton is offended by John McCain's use of her daughter's likeness in a campaign ad comparing her daughter and Brittney Spears to Barack Obama in terms of over-the-top popularity and outlandish public display.
Yet when the Paris Hilton sex tape made its way to the Internet, Kathy said nothing. Yet when Paris was first picked up for DUI, Kathy said nothing. Yet when Paris was again picked up for DUI, Kathy said nothing. Yet when Paris was dragged off to jail by LA County Sheriff's deputies, Kathy... (more)
...Chicago, Daley Democrat who wasn't worth the effort. It's amazing what can happen in fifteen short months.
The day Hillary Clinton realized that not only had the Clinton Political Machine been derailed, but dismantled was a day that had come too late. She had not only been passed by the Obama train, but she was suddenly and inexplicably cast out from the Democratic fold. She hadn't bothered to research Obama like she needed to. The liberal media had not bothered with him either. He was too unlikely a foe to worry about.
The day of reckoning has arrived.
America is at a ... (more)
...an ice cream? .... The soldiers in Vietnam died in vain, and the soldiers today in Iraq are dying in vain. And the only thing worse than a soldier dying in vain is more soldiers dying in vain." Gravel was immediately cut off without being able to continue, and the moderator turned to Barack Obama, who simultaneously said Iraq was a pointless war and that the soldiers were not dying in vain. Back to Gravel, however. If more people knew his opinions, he would far and away have won the Democratic nomination. Granted, Gravel wasn't able to raise a lot of money, and be able to appear on TV,... (more)
... now be able to collect personal information without court orders, civilian knowledge, or permission. The ACLU has declared this a “blatant assault on civil liberties and the right to privacy.”
Surprisingly, the presidential “candidate for change” Barack Obama voted for the bill. He said that while he found it imperfect, it was still a good compromise. Even though, “It grants retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies that may have violated the law by cooperating with the Bush Administration’s program of warrantless... (more)
