I am already done with the presidential race. Both camps are resorting to stupid TV advertising to cater to their stupid bases of ignoramuses while pointing fingers at each other for running a “negative campaign”. I was expecting, hoping for a better debate!
It is far too early for this junk to start and I am done already. YOU, people, will get the President YOU DESERVE! Not the best one or the one you voted for (for half of you) – just the one you deserve.
As far as I see it today, both candidates are incredibly neck to neck despite totally different agenda and media appeal. Think of it: while the “Kennedy to be” was attracting up to 250,000 Germans at a monument dedicated to Prussian military supremacy, the other one was visiting a German grocery store in the middle of nowhere, America. Still, Americans are still divided and undecided between the old guy that looks and feel like others we have had and a new guy with a noisy and well orchestrated media machine but little to offer beside radical “changes of heart.”
Again, I would have not closely followed the Democrat party’s primary, I could have liked OBObama (Or Best Offer Bama) for what he says he stands for – but I did follow the fight between his camp and the Clintonites, heard what he had to say and ran from his crazy liberal agenda – until he won and became more of a conservative (pro guns, death penalty, more gov power for Domestic spying, business exoneration for cooperating with gov, off shore drilling despite what his base and liberal congress says.
Who is OBObama? We still don’t know! No resume, a change of mind every two seconds (campaign funding, town hall meetings, support and dump his embarrassing friends and relations, supports and dump his ultra liberal base now that nomination is granted, support and dump anti-oil drilling concept and crowd), a messianic icon pushed down our throats by the enamored media, a guy largely financed by the same despicable good old businesses he criticizes.
Is he just one of these professional politicians, one of these guys blowing with the wind like the “wind cones” I mention so often on these blogs: colorful, empty, blowing with the wind?
How can he, with a straight face, go around and tell us today that offshore drilling is part of the solution to become energy independent within 10 years, when he had, along with his base and other Arnold and Pelosis, argued before that it was not even part of a solution? How can he gather a crowd of believers today and get incensed and applauded after saying he believes in “Red”, when a week ago he got the same results saying “Blue”?
He is just another of these cynical “Washingtonites” he denounces every day “as part of the problem”. After all, the successful politicians “a la senator Kennedy” all started young and had to do whatever it takes one day to get the long lasting position they have held for so long! That is why , maybe, they spend millions for a job that only pays a couple of $100k a year!
McCain kind of old kind of reassuring when listening to the crazy leftist agenda. Sure, he goes slow, fumbles around and looks and feels like the good old familiar establishment – he does not show any audacity but for now, for sure, he seems to carry the hope of 44% of the voters! Will he be elected to defeat arrogance and extreme audacity? Will he be elected by people frightened by a media made phenomenon?
Why is OBObama still dragging in the polls? Is it really because of Mc Cain’s “negative campaign” or just because he is too much, all over the place and full of himself?
Finally, I cannot even believe that the “race card” is also suddenly becoming an issue when I honestly think that nobody really cares about it. I mean, Mc Cain is often referred as our typical American old white politician, from the political establishment! Did you notice that he was white? In the meantime, the Clintons were the one who brought race in the race (http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/election2008/2008-01-24-sc-bill-clinton_N.htm), and Jackson the one saying OBObama was “acting White” (http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/09/19/jackson.jena6/index.html) or using the “n” word when referring to him ( http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/07/16/jackson.nword.ap/index.html ). His wife is the one who stated that the country had done nothing to make her proud of it, and in 2007, Sharpton said that “just because you”re our color doesn’t make you our kind.” (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2003566724_blacksummit11.html?referrer=digg).
Today, McCain is pointed out as the racist because he compared OBObama as a tabloidic celebrity loved by the media. Bringing the race card against Mc Cain, and us, white voters, is not a good idea for one simple reason: The Republican campaign has not (yet?) talked about race and only Democrats and black activists have so far been guilty of doing it. Would Mc Cain get a free pass for repeating Bill Clinton’s statements or calling OBObam a “N” or threatening to “cut his nuts” (Jackson again!)? I doubt it! That would be political suicide.
Tell you what, all of you the thin skinned professional victims and hypocrites: you don’t have to remind us! It has been more than a year that OBObama has been “groomed” for the job! We have noticed that he is black – don’t insult our intelligence and trust – and trust us when I say we don’t really care – and trust us when I say that if he makes it an issue and starts hinting that he might not get elected because we are racists, that will do it piss us off – and he won’t be elected!
He will be judged like McCain, the old white guy, for the force of his character, his agenda and his flip flopping, not for the color of his skin. Amen!
