‘This Is Not The Man I Knew’ & I Had No Idea Of Friend’s Past..Obama, Your Pants Are Still On Fire!



This is from John McCain’s speech today in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Several have said it is one of the best speeches they’ve heard him give recently.  It’s Time McCain spoke out, many have called on him to do so from the beginning. You can’t count on the Media to bring it out. They did not even listen to Hillary during the primaries.. The Media did not investigate her claims of voter fraud. Why in the world would the GOP think they would do anything now? It is up to us to get it out..email it, blog it, tell it. Then if they do not listen and want to believe the Liberal Left..well, that’s what they will get and we will all suffer. We will know that we have done our best and that is all one can do.

FULL LINK Open Thread * It Matters How You Respond (or Don’t), Mr. Obama [Update]

Today, on CNN, Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod asserted that Obama didn’t even know about Ayers’ radical past as a founder of the Weathermen.

Didn’t even know? What are you on people? We have been talking about this for a year. Tell me, Were you on something then or now?  All together now let’s sing.. Memories… by Barbara Streisand and see if you can recall..

But bringing it up seems to be a tactical error. 


It seems defensive. It opens up a factual issue that will merit more journalism, and more attention — can anyone contradict Axelrod? When did Obama find out who Ayers was? Already, paper is flying out of the McCain camp:

Does Barack Obama truly expect the American people to believe that he had no idea about his friend’s past as the infamous founder of the domestic terror group ‘The Weather Underground’ or is he just lying? If Obama didn’t know in 1995 about the bombings Ayers was responsible for, when did he find out — because Obama was promoting Ayers’ book in 1997, serving on boards with him until 2002, and trading emails and phone calls with him as recently as 2005. If Obama really was unaware of Ayers’ radical past, learning the truth doesn’t seem to have had any effect on their friendship.” …

The Newsday blogger adds All the McCain camp wants is for people to talk about Obama-Ayers, and Axelrod has provided fuel for the discussion.

Dirty Chicago Politics by Obama

Anyone who has read this blog knows that I have had major objections with McCain. With that said, I do believe he is honest. For that reason he may very well lose this election. I am more ANTI-OBAMA than anything else. However I will be voting for McCain. With all his flaws it is still true he is the one who has fought for us in more ways than one..I just wish he would start hammering on these issues and stop talking about bi-partisanship, We know you are McCain..just drop the nice guy or we are going to have one dangerous man in the highest office in the land.

I have posted in the past many times on BHO and his methods that were less than admirable. Remember how he ran unopposed for his seat. Remember how he and his cronies made sure Alice Palmer the incumbent was ineligible so he could have a sure win..much easier to get elected running unopposed. eh?

He played dirty with Hillary, and the DNC turned a blind eye. When Hillary released evidence of fraud to the media..the media did not run it. Is this what we are coming to? Sheep led to the slaughter by a con artist?

If you want to know how The great one of change plays..read on and be sure to see the videos on ‘We will not be silenced. They are important for every individual that cares about democracy. Email them..let’s get viral. They are.

Hillary’s Night to Sock it to Em!


I heard Hillary’s speech tonight, and Yes, she blew them out of the water..or should I say she blew Obama’s selection of Joe Biden as his VP pick out of the water! Clearly, she had the full attention of all in the Center. Clearly many were thrilled that she called for all to unite and come together to win this election..Clearly she praised Michelle and Biden! Clearly she did her duty. Yet, there were tears from some of her delegates, as one said afterward in an interview for CNN. “Would you hire someone who just graduated from Harvard to be your CEO of a major company?” and ” It should be Hillary, Hillary is the one with the experience.” She said, she would not vote for McCain..but that clearly someone would now have to call her and remind her to vote and that she had never not voted, in fact, she called and reminded others to vote..but not this year!

I have said before and I will say it again..if Nobama or his campaign had paid HC’s debt, (as I understand that is the usual custom) if they had put her at least on the short list as to be considered for VP, things might be different now. The radicals that have taken over the party for quite awhile now have really blown it. Yes, he gave her Tuesday night, and Bill has Wednesday night, but let’s face it. He needed her and Bill to unite..Afraid the ball is in your court now Nobama. You gotta take care of the rest. Oh, Barack  might win..maybe..but there are going to be a few who will not forget. Talk about People Skills and he wants to use his skills in dealing with leaders of other countries and he can not handle an opponent? Change eh? 

I expect his lead will go up after his Hollywood production AND his Rock Star imageThursday night with 75,000 getting caught up in the Ordained One’s coveted teleprompter speech. But you know what? I don’t think his lead will last if people really know where he is taking us. This is about a lot of issues that are going to affect our lives! I also think Hillary outshone the great orator tonight just as Dick Morris predicted.  Read below:

The Better Hillary Does, the Worse for Obama

By Dick Morris

By not putting Hillary on his ticket and then giving her a prime-time speech at the convention on Tuesday, Obama has the worst of both possible worlds. The better Hillary does in her speech, the more people ask why she was passed over for vice president.

This is written before Mrs. Clinton spoke on Tuesday night, but she will not blow this opportunity to shine in front of a larger national audience than she has ever had. She will crisply articulate her programs and proposals, and will come across as forceful, committed and energetic. Women from coast to coast will watch her and wonder why she isn’t on the ticket.

It’s a little like a movie that opens with flat ticket sales and bad reviews. Then the star they rejected for the lead role auditions and everyone wonders why she wasn’t given the part.

Obama has a huge problem with female voters. A Democratic candidate should be running 10 to 15 points better among women than among men. But Obama is losing men by 1 and carrying women by 1. While he’s doing about as well as she should among women under 40, he is actually losing those who are older, a group a Democrat usually sweeps.

He didn’t help himself with these women by not choosing Hillary. Now, when Hillary spends all of Tuesday night showing what a grievous omission leaving her off the ticket really was, the electoral consequences for Obama are likely to be horrific.

It is so odd to find a situation where the economy seems to work to the advantage of the incumbent party, even though we are mired in a quasi-recession. But the current misery most people feel is nothing compared to our fear of what might be in store for us.

We wonder if our banking system and our economy can weather the shocks that seem to loom on the horizon. It is no comfort to us to find in the Democratic candidate an ingenue who wants sharp increases in taxes. Polls show that middle-class voters do not believe that the taxes won’t apply to them and worry, in any event, that they could tip the economy into a full-fledged depression.

The Russian invasion of Georgia, and Obama’s uncertain and hesitant reaction to it as he was body surfing in Hawaii, did nothing to reassure us that he can handle the threats we face to our national security, either. Terrorism is never far from our minds, and the world suddenly seems like a dangerous place with Russia sending in tanks and rattling nuclear weapons. The combination of fears of depression and fear of war seems tailor made for McCain.

But Obama is still the favorite to win. The nation so aches for a Democrat and so wants to turn away from George Bush and the Republicans that it is hard to see how McCain can win. But when one considers the issues, it’s hard to see how he can lose.

This election can be summarized as follows: A party that is absolutely certain to win has a candidate who has great difficulty getting elected, while the other party is doomed to defeat but has nominated a candidate who just might win.

I thought this was interesting..Chaos..if they cannot manage a convention How in the world do they think they can manage a country? I know, it was just not the organization crew he knew. LOL!  Can’t help but wonder how in the world the celebrities put up with it. Read on:

Chaos on the Convention Floor

By Paul Kane Washington Post.com
DENVER — The convention floor has turned into an overstuffed pinata, as staff have told delegates the floor is essentially shut down.

Staff are informing delegates no one else is allowed on the floor, meaning no one will leave the floor and risk losing their place.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) had to beg to be allowed to cut across the floor to find the Maryland delegation. “Jesus Christ,” Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) just yelled, denied access to finding the delegates from the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

Police yelled at delegates behind the New York section to move in one direction, only to have security on the other end send them back the way they came.

Hundreds of delegates are cordoned off under the stands, denied entry into the hall.

The confusion comes on the heels of a day’s worth of complaints from delegates and party insiders about a credentialing process run amok.

And this is another opinion on Hill’s speech. read on:

Hillary Does Her Duty

Hillary hit almost all the right notes tonight, and she hit them with authority. Obama supporters should be more than happy with Clinton’s speech, and by the reaction of the crowd in the hall, they were. If there is one thing the Obama folks could take issue with, however, it’s the one Michael Crowley pointed out as soon as we were handed a copy of her prepared text: she did not say Obama was ready to be Commander in Chief.

The McCain campaign noticed this omission as well, and they wasted no time pointing it out with an email blast from spokesman Tucker Bounds directly following Clinton’s speech:

Senator Clinton ran her presidential campaign making clear that Barack Obama is not prepared to lead as commander in chief. Nowhere tonight did she alter that assessment. Nowhere tonight did she say that Barack Obama is ready to lead. Millions of Hillary Clinton supporters and millions of Americans remain concerned about whether Barack Obama is ready to be President.

It is strange that Clinton would leave that avenue of attack open to Republicans by not forcefully addressing it tonight – especially given the ad they launched just this morning.

One other aspect of Clinton’s performance tonight felt slightly off kilter, at least from where I was sitting inside the hall. The crowd was absolutely primed to get involved in the speech, offering applause and trying to start up the kind of repetitive chants that are part and parcel of political orations these days.

Yet Clinton rushed right through those opportunities. She didn’t pause and revel in the applause, and she didn’t engage the crowd nearly as much as she could have. Instead she just plowed through the text. At one point during the speech (again, this is from where I was sitting, it may have sounded differently on television) two entire sentences were lost under the applause.

Despite these two oddities, Clinton did her duty tonight, and she did it well. She got huge ovations for her opening statement declaring she was a “proud supporter of Barack Obama” and saying “the time is now to unite as a single party with a single purpose.”

Another big line, which will no doubt be the sound byte that gets the most repitition, was when Clinton told the crowd “No way. No how. No McCain.”

Clinton received a massive ovation for her comment about President Clinton’s administration and she brought the crowd to its feet again by saying she “can’t wait to watch Barack Obama sign a health care plan into law that covers every single American.”

Lastly, Clinton brought down the house with her jab that, “with an agenda like that, it makes sense that George Bush and John McCain will be together next week in the Twin Cities. Because these days they’re awfully hard to tell apart.” Touche.

Will Clinton’s speech tonight finally put an end to the drama that’s surrounded the convention thus far? Somehow I doubt it.

Well, I doubt it too. If Obama were really a leader or at least had advisors with any experience, someone would have advised him ‘enough already’ Praise the Clinton years..Praise former Pres Clinton for his contributions to our country. Suck it up Obama, that is if you put healing and uniting over your wounds during the primaries..You are playing with the big guns now..Get over it..Of course, a real leader would know that.

Note to all my blogging buddies, gotta go away for about a week, see ya when I get back..Still trying to get caught up..but betcha I do..see you over at your sites when I am back and thank you so much for your support and visits. 🙂 Lots of big ole blog hugs!
