Obama's triple threat! Powell, next President faces a daunting task and McPaling is not up to it! Biden Guarantees a crisis in first 6 months!

Obama's triple threat!

Powell has open invitation to campaign for Obama!

I recommend an immediate request ! Make him feel beholden! It would pay huge dividends!

Powell, next President faces a daunting task and McPaling is not up to it!

Powell is right on and Renounced Fear mongering! In a moment that would have made Tim Russert proud, Secretary Powell firmly renounced the divisiveness that has been perpetuated by his own party. During his interview, Secretary Powell exhibited a gravitas that has been unmatched thus far by politicians and pundits alike when it comes to an honest discussion of the state of a presidential race that has increasingly gone negative. Since the beginning of this way-too-long presidential campaign Americans of conscience have longed for someone of such stature to repudiate the blatant bigotry towards Muslims. On Sunday Colin Powell lived up to his billing as senior American statesman.

I know I was not the only one moved to tears by the following remarks of Colin Powell: "I'm also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say, and it is permitted to be said. Such things as 'Well you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.' Well the correct answer is 'He is not a Muslim, he's a Christian, he's always been a Christian.' But the really right answer is 'What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?' The answer is 'No. That's not America.' Is there something wrong with some 7-year old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she can be president? Yet I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion he's a Muslim and he might be associated with terrorists. This is not the way we should be doing it in America. Powell rejects Islamophobia

Biden put our situation in real context! and told us the situation is more Dire than we know! Joe Biden told Democratic fundraisers Sunday night that there is no doubt in his mind a crisis will occur during Barack Obama's first six months in office that will test his mettle and force him to make unpopular decisions. "Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy," said Biden to a roomful of donors. "The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America." "Remember I said it standing here, if you don't remember anything else I said," Biden continued. "Watch, we're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.
"I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it's going happen. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate." The Delaware senator spoke at two Seattle fundraises Sunday night, expected to bring in $1 million for the campaign. Biden told the supporters that when Obama will need them to stand with the administration on the difficult calls — not financially, but by using their influence within their communities to convince others that the right decisions are being made.

"I promise you, you all are going to be sitting here a year from now going, 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls, why is the polling so down, why is this thing so tough?' We're going have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years," said Biden. "I'm asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you're going to have to reinforce us." Telling the crowd to "gird their loins" for a bumpy beginning to the next presidential term, Biden said it wouldn't be initially apparent that the correct decisions are being made because "they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound." Biden rightly predicts early crises for next President

I had multitudes of stories all pointing to increasingly troubled waters ahead and the election is a small part. This is all just starting and will get much worse. We will stay together and we will keep on keeping on. We have said for years Bush has yet to do his worst and the worst has yet to come. The many facets of this manufactured crisis is coming to a head perfectly at this time and it is no coincidence! You know damn well if Obama is lucky "or unlucky" enough to sneak through the Gauntlet set up to keep this mess going under the Right you have to wonder which of the many crises Bush has set in motion will Obama have to deal with in his first 6 months?

It won't be easy. We have hard times ahead. I don't want to hear promises that can't be kept. I appreciate honesty. Thanks, Joe Biden.

Colin Powell is such a statesman. I wish he would have denounced the Bush administration long ago. But his endorsement of Senator Obama has helped restore my faith in him.

The Neocons will not go down without a bloody fight. We must remain vigilant, committed, and strong. Anything less will bring true disaster.

You are welcome! Now that I am updated I will be stopping in as I do. I am just a bit busy preparing to move to our new house! Take care!

an average patriot said...

I really appreciate Obama and Biden and we need them if we are to deal with this terrible future Bush has purposely created for our America. McPaling is slated to continue Bush's and we wan't let that happen!

an average patriot said...

Karen, Powell was right on in his endorsement! I lost faith in him when he did not speak the truth about what Bush wasd doing but just ducked out. My faith has been restored.
It sickens me that Right wing Pundits are trying to divide and conquer calling his move Racist!

an average patriot said...

You got it! We have to stay together and continue fighting but as you know I fear this one too will be stolen as the right has gone too far and the President now has too much power to allow in Dem's hands!
Many are starting to wake up!Survivalist issues because of what is happening are my focus for tomorrow! As you know I have been one my entire life!

Biden is one smart cookie. Plus, we need politicians like him to tell it like it is. Do not think for a moment that when/if Obama gets elected, we can all fall back into a rosy bubble in the fight between good vs evil. Hell no! Americans of all creed and colour need to take ownership of their political arena, from the very local level to the federal level AND educate themselves on world affairs and global players who would create crisis like the one Biden is talking about.
I saw a bit of Alex Jones' end game (or another one of his vids) on our local cable tv and he was talking about the Bilderberg (yes yes, named after the place in the Netherlands where they met up first) and showing their meeting in Ottawa CA .. I'm telling you, I know some people are put off by his manner of speaking but he does his homework and anything he brings forward is referenced. It is hard to believe but there are people who have for a long time parceled off the world into areas of interest. I sometimes wonder and worry that Obama won't be another victim like Kennedy who was about to make an unpopular decision (bringing about peace) before he got assassinated.
Geez..what 'will' the history books show 100 yrs from now??

So thoughtful! I was reading your comment going from wanting to say one thing to another but you just cemented my input to you with your final thought!
I have done numerous posts on assassinations and Obama because if all else fails I firmly expect that but there are so many other methods. I still believe that emergency landing his plane had was no coincidence. The chute deploying in mid air does not happen and that was a last minute replacement!
Remember MLK, RFK, JFK they were all assassinated and the truth never found. I firmly believe it was the Right! JFK was assassinated right after saying he was going to tell us what our secret Government was doing. I have the document and it is very scary! Anyway you take care keep up the good work and stay in touch!

Here Ingrid check this out!
A scant percentage of Americans know that ten days before President Kennedy was assassinated, he made a speech at Columbia University, during which he made the following statement:

"The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of this plight."

wow. that quote gives me chills.

Hi Linda
It is chilling! Makes you more than wonder especially with what is going on today! There are many more reports proving the lie we are living today since 9/11. No coincidence that happened right after talks broke off with the Taliban to put an oil pipeline through Afghanistan. Bush threatened an attack if they refused the pipeline. They did then 9/11 and he attacked! check out the coveted trans Afghan route
