Obama Digs Another Hole with New Campaign Ad – PART II

Posted by Admin on September 12, 2008

Well, a few hours ago I posted information about an ad that Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama had begun to air in various places around the country.  The title of the ad is “1982”, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you can view it at this URL: “New Obama Campaign Ad: “1982”.

Let’s run down 2 of the charges that Obama leveled against McCain in this ad…

OBAMA SAID: “Things have changed in 26 years, but McCain hasn’t.”

MISLEADING…
Just this morning (9/12/08) one of Joy Behar’s chief complaints expressed to John McCain when he went on the TV show “The View” was that McCain used to be a “maverick”, but that he was no longer that way.  McCain responded by saying that he was still the exact same person he’s always been.  It would seem that McCain’s own opponent agrees – McCain hasn’t changed in some very important ways over the last 26 years, and that is a good thing.

OBAMA SAID: “Admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer” & “Can’t send an email”.

I hate to break it to Obama and his ad staff who are probably in the middle of congratulating themselves right now on their “new tone” attack ads, but I was right in the previous post where I postulated that perhaps John McCain did not use email, and did not type because I thought it may be difficult for him given his severe injuries in the crash of his fighter jet, and his 5+ subsequent years of torture and poor medical care in a POW camp in North Vietnam.

Following is an excerpt from an article that was posted on Forbes.com in which they reported – 0all the way back in 2000 – that McCain cannot type emails due to his injuries, and that his wife Cindy and he answer email together in the evenings – a daily ritual for the two.  It also shows that McCain is far from the computer illiterate, old and out of touch man Obama implied…

In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate’s savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. “She’s a whiz on the keyboard, and I’m so laborious,” McCain admits.

I’m rather sad that I am right about this.  I would prefer that John McCain not have been injured in the Vietnam War, and I know the vast majority of Americans agree that we completely respect his service and sacrifice to our country.  However, I would like to also point out that this makes John McCain particularly suited to addressing some of the most pressing issues facing our country.  He knows what sacrifice is, and he’s seen first hand the brutal nature of war.  That, IMHO, makes him much better suited than a Freshman Senator with no military experience to lead our country during a time of war.  Whether we like it or not, we are there, our enemies are STILL there, and we need someone who knows what works and doesn’t work when it comes to diplomacy, and heaven forbid, military actions if needed.

Right now I would like to share with Obama something that he should have, and probably would’ve learned had he attended a less racist church for the last 20+ years…

Proverbs 16:18 (King James Version):
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

For the Democrats who are becoming more and more disenchanted with Obama every day… Please try to look beyond your hatred for President Bush, and honestly look at your options here.  John McCain is NOT going to alter the Constitution, he is going to get the government back on track.  He recognizes that Bush was by no means perfect, and he wants to rectify that situation.  Please look with an open mind.  Visit his website, read his position on the issues, and don’t give in to knee-jerk reactions.

Barack Obama displays the hallmark traits of a Marxist.  His political campaign was launched in the home of an unrepentant known Communist “Revolutionary” Terrorist who bombed the Pentagon and the Capital building as the leader of the 60s terrorist organization the “Weather Underground” (sometimes referred to as “The Weatherman”).  He has accepted the endorsement of a very well-known, and rather radical socialist political group in Chicago throughout his career in the Daley Political Machine.  He has also spoken about attending socialist seminars in college at Columbia University.

Please also consider what socialism would indeed do to our country.  The first thing socialists do is take away the people’s rights, via “suspension” and it all goes down hill from there.  Consider this for a moment — let’s assume Obama is a righteous man, and “socialism would work if done the “right” way”.  What guarantee do we have that the next administration, or the one after that wouldn’t take advantage of the laws and plunge America into the hell that was the Soviet Union under the likes of Stalin, or Germany under Hitler, or China under Mao Tse-Tung?

Let’s join together and make our country strong, secure and prosperous.  We have the resources, and the know-how to make our country great again – as well as cleaning up Washington and getting rid of the special interests, and the “old boy network” and the corruption.  We can also work together to be responsible for our environment, and to tackle poverty and education issues by implementing all of our possible options in each area.  That American ingenuity, and ability to solve problems is one of the greatest things about our country.  Our freedom guarantees that we can pursue these things, and that ultimately we will be successful and not have to sacrifice any of our inalienable rights.

I know this may sound cheesy to some of you, but I’m really not bothered by that.  I have 4 children that I want to grow up in a peaceful world, and that demands that we take care of the threats facing our nation so that our enemies don’t have an opportunity to grow stronger, and to threaten us, and so our children are not the ones stuck with solving the problems.  That’s the hope I have for the future – a real hope built on solid, proven, successful ideals supported throughout the history of our country.  I honestly don’t know who can argue with that…

Well, thanks for listening to my somewhat rant! LOL  I do hope everyone has a great weekend – whether you agree with me or not! 😉

God bless,

Could it be a landslide?

Posted by Admin on August 29, 2008

Check out the AOL straw poll for August 29, 2008…  Obama isn’t even leading in ONE state after the announcement of Sarah Palin for VP…

Obviously it’s too early to tell if this lead will last.  And, regardless it’ll be a hard fight – particularly as the smears, sexism, and other negative tactics against Palin are already starting in the MSM and in the Obama campaign.  (If you doubt it just look over on http://www.DemocraticUnderground.com – if you thought they really respected women?  You may change your mind after reading some of the threads discussing Mrs. Palin).  This is definitely not “over”, and we can’t rest on our laurels as it were.

However, the situation sure isn’t looking that good for Obama considering his acceptance speech from his “Temple-for-a-day” was less than 24 hours ago!  Coverage of his speech has been all but swept off the radar…  And, it looks like people are liking what they’ve seen of Sarah Palin so far.

Could it be true? Is Sarah “Barracuda” Palin McCain’s Pick?

Posted by Admin on August 29, 2008

I, like many have been following the rumors, on top of rumors floating around the internet and media last night and this morning speculating who will be McCain’s pick… (I really need some sleep so I apologize if this is a little hard to read! LOL)

It would appear that Romney is OUT.  Likewise, Pawlenty has said he is NOT McCain’s pick…

Who’s creating all the buzz this morning? Alaska Governor Sarah Heath “Barracuda” Palin, that’s who!  And, if this turn out to be an accurate “guess”, then this election might already be over.

As it is McCain has effectively pushed the news of Obama’s acceptance speech off the radar less than 12 hours after he finished it!  A masterful stroke of political genius by McCain’s campaign.  As for the rumors?  The media is going NUTS trying to figure this out.  They have tried to crack McCain’s campaign, but have been unsuccessful thus far…  I can’t even imagine the stress Obama’s strategists are going through at the moment – months of planning could be dashed within a matter of hours.

After spending quite some time last night reading about Governor Palin, I cannot express how happy I will be if indeed McCain has chosen her.  I was incredibly impressed.  For a quick review of Gov. Palin’s bio and such, please see the following profile on Wikipedia: Sarah Heath Palin.

Here’s what I wrote a little while ago on one of my favorite Conservative Message Boards about her:

An 80-90% approval rating??? How much better can you get? Fighting against corruption in her OWN PARTY – right on! A beautiful woman, a loving mother. A woman who knows how to work hard (was a commercial fisherman with her husband in ALASKA no less!!!), can hunt, fish and last, but definitely not least is a VERY intelligent, strong, take no bull, CONSERVATIVE woman!

I’m all for Palin! Praying and hoping here that McCain has chosen her!

(I wonder if they’ll play Barracuda at the convention if it’s her? That was the nickname her teammates gave her back in HS on their championship Basketball team! LOL Sounds like someone you’d LOVE to have in your corner!)

MORE TO COME VERY SOON!!!

PS — More and more reports are coming in that seem to confirm this pick for McCain…  Of course, nothing is for sure until she steps out on that stage!

Something to Ponder: Has Radical Feminism Paved the Way for Islam in America?

Posted by Admin on September 14, 2006

SOMETHING TO PONDER…
HAS RADICAL FEMINISM PAVED THE WAY
FOR ISLAM IN AMERICA?
Updated: 9/17/06 1:00 a.m. – Added several links under Current Events

Most often we only see and speak of the danger of Islam in terms of the radical, violent elements that plague our world. However, there is something even more sinister afoot within the world of Islam – the ability to trick a woman into thinking she is safer following the teachings of Mohammed, but instead leading her into a world of true slavery and abuse.

I have often pondered myself why the left and feminists in particular would insist on defending a society where the subjugation of women is astounding. It is far worse than anything the feminists in the 70s were fighting against while I was growing up. Islam itself is a culture in which for example, rape is prosecuted as adultery with the punishment against the woman being death by stoning. That is, unless a woman has four male witnesses that actually observed the act in question — including the act of penetration itself. (If the woman is Muslim, the witnesses must be Muslim men as well.)

Still, Islam finds among its “devout” some women in America as well as other “westernized” cultures. What is the attraction? Could it be that western men have become too feminized by their attempts to appease the “modern woman”? Could it be that some women yearn for the protection and classical family structure of the past?

I have a hunch that women are drawn to Islam because it appears to the outsider that these are more classical men. That Islamic males revere their women and believe in “protecting” them from harm – even that of a roving salacious eye. However, when one looks deeper it becomes frighteningly obvious that most of these men consider women as their possessions, indeed that is what they are taught by some of their clerical leaders – that women truly belong to their husbands in every sense of the word, and their very life is in his hands.
