Sarah Palin is a Sexy Choice for the G O P

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

There is obviously some controversy concerning Senator McCains selection of Governor Sarah Palin as his V P running mate.

True, there are some negatives in her selection. She’s young. Almost 2 years younger than Senator Obama.

She’s only had 2 years as a chief executive . Oh yes, that’s 2 years more than Obama. Etc,Etc.

HOWEVER, She brings something to the table that is priceless .

We are excited about her.Good and Bad…She’s not just another Washington insider. She’s another very real part of the American Dream.She’s the old fashioned ,”girl next door” and people are talking about her, and watching the news, and talking to each other about the yeas and neas.

What her selection has accomplished is regeneration. The McCain campaign has been energized. There is actually a sense of excitement about the upcoming Republican convention.   

Yes,  I’ll say it….Her selection was sexy. No, not in a salatious way, although she will be the prettiest Vice President in  History. Sexy by  creating excitement anticipation and possibly a push back to moral America. The land that we seem to have misplaced.

Political Check mate

Friday, August 29th, 2008

John McCain , in my opinion, has made a very clever choice as his Vice Presidential running mate.

He has chosen a 44 year old woman, Governor Palin of Alaska. She is  spunky, attractive, a certified maverick, and a social conservative, with a strong anti abortion stance.

With this choice, McCain has successfully negated the  novelty surrounding Senator Obama as the first black man running for President. The young woman, balances the young black man, so now let the issues prevail .

Brilliant move. The facts prevail, the novelties cancel each other out , and the real issues and the substance of our future can be examined in real time

The Case of the missing Clintons

Friday, August 29th, 2008

I watched the Obama acceptance speech, and was impressed by his oratory skills.

When he thankeitedd Hillary for all She had done for women’s cause, I waited to see Hillary’s reaction. ..She wasn’t there.

When he thanked President Bill Clinton for his spirited speech the night before, I watched to see Bill’s reaction….He wasn’t there.

Very wierd. Why were the Clintons  absent?

If they were there, why weren’t they at least acknowledged?

Very strange.

The case of the absent Clinton family. Not even Chelsea.

Great Speech, Now where’s the Beef?

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Senator Obama is a great orator.  He can say something, believe it, and make it real, in his own mind.

That type of person is very powerful, and very dangerous. The reality that they see, and project, becomes true, because they will it and believe it.However, believing while very imspirational does not make it true.

To want something to be true. To trick your mind into seeing it as the truth, is very inspirational, but actually implimenting some action to make it true is a whole other function.

I believe in fairy tales, happy endings, and castles in the sky, but if I want to live in that castle, I better  begin to build a staircase, and a substance to my dreams, or get myseld a good parachute.

Dreams are vitally important, but G-d gave us free will , brains, and a movable thumb to implement those fantasies. It works. But needs some practical ,concrete planning in addition to the fluff and the visions.

Again I say to Senator Obama, YOUR WORDS ARE GREAT, AND VERY INSPIRATIONAL, BUT………” Where’s the beef?”

Show me how you are going to do what you say and you will have a convert.  So far I hear and read a lot of rhetoric, bot NO SUBSTANCE AT ALL.

The value of Biden as V P running mate

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

I have been listening to all the Democratic spin doctors, portray Biden as a great choice as a balance to Senator Obama.

He brings experience, Foreign Affairs expertise, fiscal experience, and general  practical knowledge to the Obama ticket.

WHAT!!!!

Stop me if I’m wrong. Isn’t that the biggest insult and condemnation of  Obama’s candidacy, possible? If he’s lacking all of those qualities, what the heck is he doing trying to be president. What a joke. If Biden has all those great attributes, why is he the Vice President, He should be at the top of the ticket.

This election is bad and worse. How messed up. At a critical life and death junction in the future of Western Civilization, we are dealing with such dysfunctional and weak options.  McCain is the big winner, but sadly, by lack of other options.

Big tax increases will strangle small business

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

When the economy is falling into a recession/ stagflation,  government becomes increasingly desperate for tax revenues.

This desperation comes at the worst possible time for small businesses, which suffer the same scarcity of funds.

Increased spending by the Ferderal Government in the wake of a change in  the party controlling the White House and the Congress, will spell a financial yoke that will drag down a great many small and medium businesses.

If Obama wins, he has promised billions in new spending on social welfare programs and universal health care. Where is this money going to come from ?

The State and Federal Governments are scrambling for money at this level. Add a few hundred billion in new programs, and the printing presses will be working overtime to print new money.

The inflation which this will engender , will be even more painful that the spreading recession, resulting in my recurring economic nightmare  scenario…Stagflation. The 2 ton Gorilla with the nasty attitude. 

Senator Biden could help in swing states

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Senator Joe Biden, a baptized Catholic from Scranton Pennsylvania, would appear to bring a potential swing state surge for Obama,  Or will he?

     A Catholic with pro abortion beliefs?, No, No, This is one stance that will hurt not help with middle America.

     If the Catholic middle of the road vote was the objective..didn’t and won’y work. Abortion is one of those key platforms that engenders passion, and  trumps other beliefs.

     By the way, choosing someone as your running mate who adds a great deal of experience and substance to your ticket is a greeat idea.. if you’re the top of the ticker.

     Choosing someone to balance you off is an admission that you are lacking in those very attributes. The Vice President doesn’t run the country, or even have any say at all. It is the top of the ticket, the President, who runs the show.

   Nice try, but you got it wrong. Unless you are looking as your V P as nothing more than an attack dog with a big mouth.

How many houses do you own?

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

You live in an apartment, have a second apartment in Washington D C 

You  own a variety of investment properties, plus a vacation get away.

 You are running for President of the United States, and have been campaigning almost non stop for well over a year.

Some one asks a loaded question concerning how many houses you own, and the exact number escapes you.

Rather than being a point of levity, it sure sounds like a badge of success , to me. Owning a number of different properties is part of the American dream, and is a badge of success. 

If I had to make a choice for President to lead my Country, I would certainly want to choose a successful accomplished person.

Don’t ridicule unless you have achieved something , other than handing out flyers. 

NBC News, not biased either?????

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Now NBC/WSJ Poll puts Obama up by 3 points, but  no mention of the Obama behind by 5 points poll, but they don’t miss a chance to list a litany of McCain faults and weaknesses, but Obama was on vacation, so McCainb had the media to himself…HORSEFEATHERS !! 

How about …I’d settle for a 70- 30 split in equality.

I feel the critical issues in this election are watershed. 

A move back to a world of good and evil. A world where it is O K to get chills when you hear the Star Spangled Banner..

A world where at T V reporter,Chris Collingsworth, would not DARE to try to embarass a huge star like Kobe Bryant, at the Olympics, for expressing a love of and pride in America    

I’m no right wing nut job.  in fact on most social issues I’m middle to slightly left, but on the life and death issues which are putting MY COUNTRY at serious risk.. No compromise. NONE !!!!       I love this country , I would be willing to die for my country,  I feel that this is the last greatest hope for Civilization for generations.      You/ want to comprfomise Her,  I will line up in front of you.
