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

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.

Gas Prices to Plummet

August 30, 2008

Billy Crystal, the editor of the Weekly Standard said on Fox News back in June that if McCain named Sarah Palin as his Vice-Presidential nominee the cost of gas would immediately plummet.  I am anxiously looking forward to getting up in the morning to fill up on cheap gas.

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.
