The Poor Obama-maniacs

Unless Hillary Clinton pulls off a miracle it looks like Obama will be the Democratic nominee for president. Don't count Hillary out yet, the Clintons always seem to have a trick or two up their sleeves. But things certainly look bad for them.

So we will have Obama. Just the mere mention of any of the following and white liberals under the age of 30 go wild: "Yes, We Can", "Hope", "Change."

Obama certainly is a brilliant speaker. Lots of folks have fallen head over heels for this guy (literally, notice the trend of supporters fainting at Obama rallies). Shouldn't I at least respect the fact that Obama is getting people interested in politics again?

No, I don't respect Obama. I think that the Democrats deserve better.

After 8 years of President Bush and the war in Iraq... Democrats deserve better. Democrats deserve a candidate that has both substance and experience. They deserve a candidate that actually has the ability to put his rhetoric to work to implement the party's ideas.

Sadly for them, Obama is just not that guy.

I live in DC. I go to law school. I have a lot of liberal friends. I would hate to see them crushed when Obama is shown to be a phony. These people really believe in him.

But come on folks. Do you really think the Republicans are not going to paint this man as a wacky liberal who is disconnected with the problems of this country?

Hell, the Republican machine was able to crush John Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran and someone who served in the senate ten times as long as Obama. What do you think the Republicans are going to do to a man who has served a few years in the senate and is as liberal as George McGovern?

On top of that Obama will be running against John McCain a man who is a war hero and respected across the board. In fact, I think that McCain was stuck as a POW longer than Obama was a senator.

So maybe, in what should be a slam dunk for Democrats... the 2008 presidential elections... the Dems will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In the process a few liberals are going to have their hopes shattered.

The Obama Movie

A movie about Obama's life. Yeah, I would be really pumped to see that flick.

But the Fresh Prince as Obama? That's kinda interesting.


Clinton Supporter Stabs Obama Supporter

I knew that the race between Obama and Clinton was tight... but this story is just ridiculous.

On top of that... the Clinton supporter is a registered Republican. What's happening here that I'm missing?


Peggy Noonan On William Buckley

Buckley said in effect, Well, there's something known as American conservatism, though it does not even call itself that. It's been calling itself "voting Republican" or "not liking the New Deal." But it is a very American approach to life, and it has to do with knowing that the government is not your master, that America is good, that freedom is good and must be defended, and communism is very, very bad.

The Wall Street Journal article can be found here.

Obama Fainting Ladies: Frauds?

Who knows? But it does sound a tad scripted. I wouldn't put it past him.

I live in DC and work in Maryland. Seems to me that the citizens of those two places should take a look at the video above.

Moment Of Truth

Have you folks seen the FOX show Moment of Truth? The show has contestants hooked up lie detectors with their family out in the audience. The contestants are asked 21 personal questions about their lives. With each truthful answer they win more money but if they lie then they take away nothing.

The show has been one of my new favorites. However, the last episode concerning a young couple was a little difficult to watch. During the episode the wife admitted all of the following: she was still attracted to past boyfriends, had multiple affairs, and would leave her current husband if given the chance.

After all of this was out she then lied on the last question losing all of her money.

A fascinating story concerning the couple can be found here.

Obama... A 2nd Coming of Reagan?

Well, at least when it comes to speaking ability as this Wall Street Journal article suggests.

I certainly believe that Obama has a fine gift for language as did Reagan. I also think it is unwise to underestimate Obama's appeal to the voters. A lot of his appeal is that he is the exact opposite to the image many people have of Bush--more articulate and more diverse for starters.

But I really think support for Obama is really a tragedy in the making. After 8 years of President Bush and Republican control the Democrats really deserve a better candidate. Democrats have suffered enough having their ideas ignored. They need a candidate who has years of experience in battling the Right-Wing attack machine. They need someone who has been battle tested. They need someone who can actually implement their ideas (someone who knows the proper political tactics).

Sadly I think that Obama is being set up for a gigantic fall. Its a shame that a great party has to rely on a man who has been a senator for less than 4 years to lead it forward.


Obama = A Repeat Of McGovern

Wow. If that video is true (and perhaps it might be a fake) McCain should spend millions in airing it all over the country without any changes at all!

The End Of Conservatism?

Sigh, another person in the media who thinks that the conservative movement is dead.

Obama On Obama: " I Would Not Be Prepared To Be President."


Terrorist Bunny Says "Don't Buy Danish"

The wacky and nutty terrorist bunny from Palestinian TV is at it again. This time he is threatening those who choose to buy Danish products.

Why is he jumping mad (ha ha!)? Did someone steal his carrots? Was he sick of being cruelly denied his favorite morning cereal? Nope, the anger comes from a simple drawing. Sigh.



I have been gone a whole year now.

Perhaps I should start this blog up again. I miss it.

Plus, with Obama-mania running wild there needs to be a voice under the age of 30 with some sanity.

Expect more in the near future!

Fred Thompson For President

From the Foxnews Interview today:

THOMPSON: I want to see how my colleagues who are on the campaign trail do now, what they say, what they emphasize, what they're addressing, and how successful they are in doing that, and whether or not they can carry the ball in next November, and mainly whether or not they can reach the American people, inspire the American people to do the tough things that we're going to need to do.
CHRIS WALLACE: And if you search your soul and if you listen to what they're all saying and it doesn't seem to you that they're catching on, making sense — whatever — then what?
THOMPSON: Well, I'm going to give it serious consideration.

That sounds like some political speak for... yes.

If Mr. Thompson were to run it would certainly shake the field up. There was talk on the Internets that Mr. Thompson wouldn't run because his buddy McCain was in the race already. Well, look at McCain's recent poll numbers. From the interview it looks like Fred Thompson is thinking that he has to step in and kick some butt.

I don't know if I am going to vote for him. But we haven't done too badly in the past with electing a conservative actor as president of the United States.

Rudy Giuliani

It looks like a lot of "Republicans" are falling in love with Rudy according to this poll.

Wow, I hope that poll is wrong. The only thing I can see that Rudy is good at is talking tough against Radical Muslims. I will give him that.

But the rest of his platform is terrible (from a conservative point of view).

If Rudy is the GOP choice I promise there is going to be a splinter of some kind in the party. I can't imagine that the regular people in the GOP will tolerate Mr. Giuliani's liberalism.

Disabled Veterans Get Screwed

Look, by now you folks know that I am not a big fan of the Bush administration. I think that it is wrong on spending, wrong on foreign policy, wrong on the shape of government.

But one thing I thought that Bush was doing a good job on was support for our fighting soldiers.

But I was wrong... dead wrong.

Today I read that soldiers who were paralyzed, suffered brain damage and lost limbs owe the government enlistment bonus money.

WHAT THE HELL? You mean the "Spender In Chief" couldn't cut these poor souls some slack?

This president is a joke.


Did Everyone Know

...that Hillary Clinton's fundraisers are called "Hillraisers"?

Damn, at least she is kinda creative.


The 2008 American Auto Show

We get a lot of magazines at the apartment. We have magazine piles stacked up throughout (and I must say they are easy to trip into!).

Every once in a while something good is actually written in them.

I found this short article in Time magazine detailing the candidates as one of the most entertaining I have read in months.

Which candidate is the most tech savvy of the bunch? Which fella or gal has the most friends on Which American has the most hits on his wikipedia page?

This website is keeping score.
