I'll be a son of a gun! I wanted to start this off with the passing of yesterday's GI Bill that Obama rightly voted for and McCain abstained from. I just searched 3 1/2 friggen hours and I couldn't find the Bill? I wanted to show that it should really turn off many of the Veterans Groups that have all along been one of the backbones of McCain's Campaign. I wonder what my sons think of McCain now? McCain and Bush's big opposition to the Bill is that they think too many Veterans will opt out of their Forever Wars and get out to go to College. I really do not see that as a problem because many will be drawn to the Military as a means to afford College especially as the entire economy races South. It drove us in the military in the early 70s. Also included in the Bill were substantial funds to improve our failing infrastructure and improve unemployment benefits. McCain not wanting to vote on that Bill that was very important to our military, Katrina victims, hurting Americans, and American Society as a whole should tell many how important they are to McCain and what his priorities are and it is not them, the troops, or our Country that is in trouble!
I was offended that McCain could justify being against the bill but very disturbed over his ignorant response to Obama when he mentioned McCain abstained knowing his friends Rove, Bush, and Cheney, either didn't serve at all or went AWOL. He is okay with the fact that His Bosses either didn't serve having dodged Vietnam or got in the Reserves and went AWOL. I will go to my death knowing Bush received special favors to keep him from serving in Vietnam. Anyway he jumped right on Obama: I listened to this exchange between Obama and McCain. Obama criticized McCain and rightly so for not voting in favor of giving the troops added benefits. McCain in his smart ass holier than thou tone said I do not need someone who has not served in the military telling me how to treat the troops and that was the end of that one. McCain shut him up and it made McCain look strong. That should have been the beginning and Obama should have shut him up. Obama should have responded saying I do not have to be a woman to know how to treat them.Thus shutting McCain up, taking no punches, shutting him up, and appearing wiser as he is and more presidential. He has to learn how to fight like theses idiots. Taking the higher ground is just going to be a quicker way out of town. Do I have to teach Obama how to debate on this level? If he does not learn we are already done!
OBAMA VS. MCCAIN: THE LOBBYIST WAR
McCain is dumping his lobbyists and as far as I am concerned anyone who has dealings with them should be fired and tried. Average Americans, we the people, must be put back in the process and we will under Obama. Now I am happy to say to top it off yesterdays big issue with straight talking McCain as you know was his Spiritual endorsements: Finally Mr. McCain repudiated the Rev. John C. Hagee, a televangelist, after a watchdog group released a recording of a sermon in which Mr. Hagee said Hitler and the Holocaust had been part of God’s plan to chase the Jews from Europe and drive them to Palestine.
Later in the day, he also rejected the endorsement of the Rev. Rod Parsley of the World Harvest Church of Columbus, Ohio, whose anti-Muslim sermons were broadcast on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday. Specifically on Hagee’s sermon on the Holocaust, McCain said, “Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible. I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee’s endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well.” A few hours later, after an ABC News report on Parsley started making the rounds, an AP reporter asked McCain about Parsley’s belief that the United States was created in order to destroy Islam. “I believe that even though he endorsed me, and I didn’t endorse him, the fact is that I repudiate such talk, and I reject his endorsement,” McCain said. It’s about time. Keep in mind, McCain was all-too pleased to not only seek out the support of these religious extremists, but to accept their endorsements, praise their “leadership,” and even campaign alongside them. McCain now claims he didn’t realize how crazy Hagee and Parsley really are. McCain slowly backs away from Hagee, Parsley — will there be consequences
You know he knew I am sick of the lying. McCain is finally being held account. He has been getting a buy up until now. he is now burning his bridges in an attempt to find new lies as he tries to reinvent himself. It is up to Obama to highlight these lies and uncover the living lie that is John McCain. Things are looking better for Obama every day as the soft underbelly of mealy mouthed McCain comes to light and I look forward to the one on ones between McCain and Obama. As long as Barack responds accordingly to McCain's smart ass dismissals we stand a beautiful chance of saluting President Obama. God Bless America!
