My Dad Will Kill Me, But Obama is Hope

November 2, 2008

My dad will kill me for saying this, but Obama right now is the closest thing we have in this country to hope.  I wanted Hillary.  I wanted to see a President that looked like me.  Obama doesn’t.  He thinks like me though and I think that’s more important.

This whole election, probably like all other elections before it is about crap.  On PBS tonight John McLaughlin wanted to talk about reporters having to ride in John Biden’s plane instead of the Obama plane.  A lot of blogs are talking about Obama’s aunt living here illegally.  I don’t know why my dad hasn’t touched that one yet.  You know what? It doesn’t matter.  None of this crap changes anything about our country anymore than me talking about John McCain’s brother calling 911 to complain about the traffic or Cindy McCain’s half sister being disowned by Cindy matters.

Throughout this election, Barack Obama has given a message of hope.  It may be false hope, but its positive and tangible and it seems like the future might actually change for the better under him.  John McCain has given a message of fear and cleaning up some overspending in Washington.  The overspending in Washington is nothing compared to what we are letting huge corporations do to this country on a daily basis.  They say Obama is a wealth redistributer, but aren’t all politicians?  The rich had their share of the wealth increase under Bush, the middle class had their share shrink.  How is that not wealth redistribution?

Joe the Plumber’s main quality seems to be that he’s too stupid to understand policy so the McCain campaign keeps rolling him out with the message that stupid people like McCain and you should too. Is that really the message we should be sending.  George Bush may not be the worst President we ever had, but he’s got to be the dumbest.  Isn’t it time we elected somebody intelligent?

I like to believe that John McCain was once an honorable man.  I remember how much my dad used to hate him.  I’ve read a lot about his 2000 campaign and if I’m right, the John McCain of 2000 would have punched the John McCain of 2008 in the jaw.  He’s sold out every principle that made him a maverick in the first place.

So I am pulling hard for Obama.  I can’t vote myself and it won’t really matter because he’s going to kick butt on Tuesday.  It is funny because this election is going to effect me as much as anybody, but I have absolutely no say in it.  I guess this is my way of having a say.  Tuesday is coming.  For those of us that this will effect, but that have no voice of our own get out there and support Barack Obama.  Hope is a good thing.  Fear is not.

There are a few things I know:

1. I am dead when my dad reads this

2. I love my dad, but he’s an idiot when it comes to politics

3. 125 pounds is not obese

4. Obama is going to win Tuesday

5. It feels good to actually be the one posting in my blog

Attacks on Palin Show Hidden Mysoginy

August 31, 2008

I get a kick out of the Obamabots who think that we will vote for the two men on the Democrat ticket because they happen to agree with us on 95%+ of all issues.   Nothing could be further from the truth.  She may believe in teaching creationism and not in global warming, but the point remains she is a woman.

Sexists say that Palin has no foreign policy experience, but remember Alaska is the closest state to Russia and while Russia and the US have had a neutral relationship and Russia has allowed the US to use its airspace for missions into Afghanistan, it is clear that McCain doesn’t intend to keep it that way.  Palin successfully defended the people of Alaska from reindeer, polar bear, and Russian attack for nearly two years and that is critical to the conversation of foreign policy experience.

How did she manage to do it?  She kept a tight ship.  When the chief of the state Public Safety Commissioner wouldn’t fire her brother in law, he was fired.  When she was mayor of Wasilla, she fired the chief of police and the library director for supporting her opponent.  The Russians can spot disunity and Mayor Palin couldn’t afford to be seen as weak.  She was sued by the police chief for breech of contract, but won because in Alaska police officers serve at the behest of the mayor.  Don’t mess with a woman who knows her law.

How Obama Stole the Primary Part 1 – His Birth

August 30, 2008

I wanted to take a chance to go through the way that Obama stole the primary from Hillary.  I thought I’d start at the very beginning–Obam’s Birth.  It is a fairly well-known fact that Obama is not a United States citizen and thus is not eligible to run for President.

This is one of the most troubling parts of Obama stealing the election.  Simply put, he would have been able to pull this off without a considerable conspiracy.  There is no way that Obama could have pulled this off on his own.  In his lawsuit, Phillip Berg, maintains that Obama changes his birth certificate.  However, surely, he couldn’t have just photoshopped his birth certificate and been done with it.  People would have to be paid off for their silence.

I believe that several people wisely reallized that the easiest way to succeed in public life in this country is by being a black male.  You look at people like 50 Cent and Michael Jordan and you know that black men are given instant access to institutions that the rest of us can only dream of.  Obama was picked by these people simply because he was a black man.  The rest was easy.  Simply run a national election and win it.  The key was fixing it so Obama could meet the requirements.

While this isn’t conclusive evidence, look how Obama holds the baseball bat.   His stance is all open, not closed like an American child’s would be.  He holds the bat like a foreign kid.

McCain Makes a Girl His VP!

August 29, 2008

When Barack Obama named Joe Biden as his vice-president it signaled that Obama did not have much confidence in his own experience or judgement and needed a more seasoned politician to help him out.  By choosing a woman with less experience than Barack Obama, McCain has shown that he is totally confident in his own experience and judgement to lead.  I am too.

At first, it might seem kind of strange to think of a girl in such a high political office, but really being a Vice-President is a lot like being a wife.  Your job mostly is to make excuses for the President, go to functions he doesn’t want to go to, run the senate even though they don’t let you vote, and make sure the President takes his medication.  These are all jobs that are well-suited for a woman.

Palin, like McCain is a maverick.  She won’t even let lobbyists in her office which is probably why she didn’t reallize she was on McCain’s short bus.  Senator Ted Stevens has represented Alaska since the Kennedy administration.  He said of Palin and her running mate for governor, “We have a state that needs new management.  These two people represent a new generation and they represent a new vision, a new energy.  They represent the kind of people who should come along and take our places.”  That’s high praise indeed from Alaska’s senior statesman.

Let’s face it at 72, McCain is an extra order of bacon from having a fatal grabber.  If he does Palin will become the country’s first woman President.  Her nearly 2 years of experience as governor of a state with a population bigger than all, but 17 cities in this country.  As it was pointed out on Fox News today, Alaska is next to Russia and she has managed to avoid any kind of invasion or undo Russian influence unlike Georgia.  She has also brings her expertise at culling the reindeer population to the lower 48.

With McCain’s own daughters nearing the aging of serious romantic relationships, I’m sure that they would be happy to have Aunt Sarah in office to make sure that they never get their heart broken by a federal employee without consequences.

Let’s ride John McCain’s coat tails to history lady.  McCain/Palin ’08 and one bout of snow shoveling by John McCain could be our path to history.

Listen to What They’re Not Saying

August 29, 2008

Nobody has denied that Obama is a secret Muslim.

Speakers at the Democrat National Convention have been quick to deny that Obama isn’t ready to be President or that he doesn’t have the expertise on the economy or foreign policy, but what haven’t they been saying.   With all the speakers, nobody has denied that Obama is a secret Muslim.  I would think that this is something the Democratic party would really want to clear up…unless of course its true.

Nobody has denied that Obama is ineligible to run for President because he is a citizen of Indonesia and not of the United States.   How strange.  Isn’t the something that it would be a good idea for even one of the Democrat speakers to clear up?  Well of course unless its true.

If you were a Presidential candidate who had a big flag painted on the outside of your plane, wouldn’t you want one of your surogates to let the people of the United States know this?  So far nobody has gotten up in front of the convention to claim this which puts doubt on Obama’s denial of charges that there is no flag on his plane.

Sure its easy for Democrats like us to get wrapped up in the convention, but ask yourself not just what they are saying, but what aren’t they saying?  It seems to me when a false charge is made against you, denial is an important first step…unless of course its true.

Nobama Speaks Tonight

August 28, 2008

Much like the Greeks built their coliseum on the back of slave labor, the Obama forces have built a Greek themed platform for him to speak from tonight on the backs of Hillary and Bill Clinton.  Why is it that they stuck Hillary back on Tuesday so that they could give Obama Thursday night without her competition?  If they had been smart they would have given Bill and Hillary tonight to make boh their speeches.  If there are two things that Hillary Clinton has built her career on it is health care and cutting the capital gains rate.  I bet Nobama barely touches on the first part tonight and never even mentions the second.  Will he tout the supply side economics that the Clintons have championed or give us more of his Islamo-socialist rhetoric.  I’m guessing the latter.  Oh yes, I will be watching Nobama speak tonight, but it will mostly be to mock him and to make fun of what Michelle Obama is wearing.

Disgusting

August 28, 2008

The rioting crowd at the Democrat National Convention wouldn’t even let Bill Clinton speak tonight.  I guess they found a way to shut him up that didn’t play poorly for the television cameras.  The man was one of our Presidents and deserved to be heard not hooted and hollered so that he couldn’t even get a word out.  Clinton put on a brave face for Hillary, but you know he wants McCain to win.  I give Bill credit for going through with it, but you know when he did things like calling John McCain an extremist that his heart wasn’t in it.

The Democrat National Convention

August 27, 2008

Anybody who saw Hillary’s amazing speech on Tuesday of the Convention saw that she should have been our President.  She was classy, eloquqent, and displayed strength and empathy for the problems of real Americans.  She presented such a strong case for Obama as the candidate who can best carry forth the goals and ideals that mean so much to her.  She was truely at her best last night and gave all Americans something to aspire to.

What Hillary has started we must continue.  We need quality health care for all men and women in this country, we need to safeguard the rights of all women, we need to improve the economy, and we must build a strong foreign policy by rebuilding the coalitions that have been tarnished by the Bush administration over the past 8 years.

My friends, there is only one man who can do these things.  Only one man with the experience to lead and who will bring Hillary’s goals to fruition and that man is John McCain.    There are 3 majors issues important to C.O.U.G.A.R.s (Cut Up Obama Get A Republican) and McCain is on the right side of all of them:

1. You don’t like Obama and neither does John McCain.  This is the ultimate sympatico.  Together, we can show Obama not to take women for granted.

2. Inheritance Tax – Let’s face it women live more than men.  They face a much heavier burden from the inheritance tax.  McCain wants to drop it to 15%.   Odds are you’re going to outlive your husband you might as well enjoy it.

3. Jobs – Yeah McCain isn’t big on equal pay for women, but with his robust foreign policy and openness to bringing back the draft who do you think gains?  Contrary to popular opinion the most liberating times in this country for women in the workforce weren’t the 70s and 80s, they were World War I and World War II.  When the men are overseas those jobs still need to get done and that means better jobs and better pay for women.  If we’re in Iran next year and Russia 2 years after that, McCain will completely shatter the glass ceiling once and for all.
