Yesterday, Aaron Burr… Err, I mean Dick(head) Cheney endorsed John McCain for President. This is a very unfortunate endorsement for John McCain to receive from the worst Vice President since Aaron Burr.
There’s a lot of crap that Biden has been getting for his comment about terrorists testing America if Obama is elected. Was he referring to the Cuban Missile Crisis? Or was he referring to the attacks of September 11?
Let’s put things in perspective here, my friends (as John McCain would say). Bush, a politician with next to zero experience, gets elected and America is attacked. Were they planning the attacks before Bush was elected? Hell if I know. Would they have attacked if Gore was in office? Who knows.
Having a noob President who also happens to be a cowboy in office certainly would give the terrorists an additional incentive to attack us. It has been well documented that the terrorists are interested in bankrupting America. This is precisely the direction that Cowboy Bush and Congress have been taking us.
However, I’m willing to bet that a McCain presidency is far more likely to result in a terrorist attack on America than an Obama presidency. Why? Because John McCain has shown that he is willing to fight a “war on terror” by invading another country that had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks of September 11. McCain is willing to turn America into a communist country (ala voting for the communist bailout of failing banks in America) and send our soldiers into harms way with misguided and fabricated military intelligence.
Just think about it for a minute. Where was his 30 years of experience when he was sounding the war on Iraq trumpet? Where was all his wisdom when he cast his votes in Congress that put us into the situation we are in now? A lot of good that experience did for us over the last 8 years, right?
I love America! I’ll joke from time-to-time about how California is our own country, but I’m not secretly promoting an independent California. As much as I think politicians like Dick Cheney has tarnished the American dream for decades to come, I still love our country.
When we hear about nut jobs in Texas and Montana who are trying to secede from America, we usually chalk it up as a bunch of crazies in the middle of the desert. Then you have Sarah Palin, John McCain’s VP running mate, who happens to be running around with the Alaskan Independence Party. No, that’s not the Independent Party in Alaska. That is Alaskans who want to secede from the United States of America.
For someone who touts her patriotism not by the taxes she pays, I’m really looking hard for how the hell she is patriotic.
If someone wants out of America so bad, why are they running on a presidential ticket? How about she just gets the hell out of America. Russia is right in her backyard. She could just swim there and take the whole Alaskan Independence Party with her.
I got a good chuckle over the latest finding that <a href=”http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/10/palin.investigation/index.html”>Palin abused her powers as Alaskan governor</a>. Now, if we could just get someone to look into Dick Cheney. If there is any anti-Clintonian out there who votes for McPalin, the American people should collectively get to kick you in the crotch!
Anyone else notice something funny about Bush reasoning:
1. Just months ago, talk about how the economy is strong.
2. Witness the largest bank collapses in the history of the country
3. Tell America we need a $700 billion bailout
If Bush was so incredibly wrong about the economy several months back, why would we take his economic advice and push through an urgent $700 billion bailout?
Especially when he has taken no action in his administration to correct the issues. Like, perhaps firing the head of the SEC as John McCain suggested.
One more thing that is really giving me a good chuckle is everyone pointing fingers at Slick Willy for lowering the requirements for obtaining mortgages. That was over eight years ago. It doesn’t take more than a year (in any state in our entire union) for a bank to foreclose on a home. In most cases, it will be less than 6 months. If these people were so unworthy of being home owners, why were they able to own their homes for the last 7.5+ years?
I’ll give you a hint: It had something to do with the economy and an outhouse. According to RealtyTrac, foreclosures were up 121% over the 2nd quarter of last year and foreclosures are nearly double what they were for the 1st quarter of 2006.
This is about people losing their jobs and their businesses, not being unfit for a mortgage. While there are certainly examples of people unfit for a mortgage getting a home, the massive increase in foreclosures is not because people were unfit. It is because of failed economic policies and failed foreign policy that have sucked trillions of dollars out of the US economy.
One more thing for the W cronies that point the fingers at Slick W. How the hell can you blame people who spend more than they are making? Look at your own administration and the massive deficit this administration has been operating our entire country. The pot is truly calling the kettle black my two-faced friend!
I’m just saying…
Sure, he wants to clean up Wall Street, but the fundamentals of the economy are strong? Really?
That’s like saying the fundamentals of your small business is doing just fine right after your QuickBooks database got corrupt and you don’t have a backup since 2004.
John McCain, looking to gain support for his gas tax holiday, reached out to Hillary Clinton supporters in a stunning speech stimulating the lives of all the “bitter” voters of Pennsylvania. While most of the media focused on the bitter voter aspect of the McCain speech, I found it damning for the McCain campaign that his advisers believe his gas tax holiday is a winning argument. God help us if we have an administration that believes this idiotic economic policy will do anything more than severely damage the US economy.
Often cited as having a better grip on economic issues, Barrack Obama surprisingly proposed a $50 million subsidy for big oil on Monday. Where have you spent your tax rebate check? My guess is that you’ve spent it (will spend it) at the gas pump. Guess who is making the money on higher gas prices? It isn’t your local (independently owned and operated) gas station. Obama tears into McCain for offering up a gas tax holiday (yes, a stupid idea), but his proposal to expand the tax refunds is no different: a subsidy for big oil.
How about we get politicians offering up real economic solutions. Solutions that are going to create more jobs rather than get us to spend more money on gas and useless crap from Walmart. How about some financial incentives for anyone who wants to solar panel their house! How about some tax credits for small businesses and entrepreneurs who are the heart of the American economy! What about spending that $50 million on helping people start or grow their businesses! Give me some real fiscal stimulus, Obama, not some watered-down version of McCain’s gas tax holiday.
Hillary announced that she plans to help finance the national debt with her personal funds, much like she’s financed her successful Presidential campaign! I’m not sure this is really the best idea, but the more I think about it… This is sounding pretty good. If she cares about our country this much, let her spend the money. Hillary 2008!
I’ll keep it really brief:
- Bring more attention to the “gas tax holiday”
- Point out how both of your opponents support it even though it would just put more money into the already fat pockets of oil companies
- Remind people that both Clinton and McCain support this ridiculous economic gimmick, and ask the public to decide who we think Clinton and McCain are really supporting
- Ask America if we want more of the same flat economy over the last 8 years with failed fiscal policy after failed fiscal policy
- Win handedly, so you are officially running against John McCain and then keep bringing up the fact that McCain supported this very, VERY bad economic gimmick
