More on Last Night’s Debate After a Night’s Sleep

I am, by nature, an aggressive political speaker much like Joe Biden. [This is Video of a speech after the Republican Convention.] In a debate I take my opposition by the ankles and use them for a golf club if the facts are so completely on my side. This serves well in Congressional elections or state offices. For a Presidential Debate it is counter productive. After a night’s sleep and listening to various analysis I believe that Obama did an acceptable job in all parts of the debate and he excelled in some. He corrected the domestic and foreign record record, reacting calmly and deliberately. Barrack Obama flatly won the foreign policy debate. On the ‘earmarks’ condemnation from McCain, his … Continue reading

I’m Not Happy With This Debate…But It Was Acceptable

This is going to be very short.  John McCain did better than I wanted. McCain was dismissive towards Obama. In several places McCain simply attacked Obama’s judgment and integrity. In the beginning Obama was tying McCain to Bush. Then he let him off the hook. Why? When McCain was simply talking nothing but lies why the hell didn’t Obama simply get into the microphone and start demanding the truth. It’s called getting aggressive.  He should have gotten in McCain’s face. While he looked presidential and strong I’m not sure Obama was in McCain’s face when he should have been. Interrupt the son of a bitch when he simply lies about your record. People like an aggressive person who’s willing to … Continue reading

Amazing Extended Video About McCain’s Health (short version banned)

The 60 second version of this video has been withdrawn by MSNBC and refused by Fox and CNN. Watch this longer video that goes into detail about the questions of his health. This video asks questions by doctors and in a very specific manner. This site is called The Real John McCain. There is a petition to support the demand for complete health information. While McCain’s campaign has released nearly 1200 pages of medical information. Reporters, even medical doctors, were limited to 3 hours to examine all nearly 1200 pages with no electronic devices, photos or cel phones allowed. That was an amazing tactic that effectively eliiminated the entire topic. This video has some specific medical information that was new … Continue reading

The Blood On The Floor Among McCain Advisors

H/T to Political Wire “It just proves his campaign is governed by tactics and not ideology. In the end, he blinked and Obama did not. The ‘steady hand in a storm’ argument looks now to more favor Obama, not McCain… My guess is that plasma units are rushing to the McCain campaign as we speak to replace the blood flowing there from the fights among the staff.” – Former McCain adviser Craig Shirley, quoted by the Huffington Post.

Seizing Control of the Financial Freefall

by Rosemary and Walter Brasch It was Monday evening and the phone rang—again. It was probably the fifth time in two hours. A pleasant voice said she was from the—oh that really doesn’t make any difference. Both presidential candidates have volunteer minions on the phones and Internet day after day, month after month, for what seems like years. A half-dozen or more e-mails a day from candidates, surrogates, and candidate support groups flood our in-boxes; letters and oversized postcards clog our mail boxes. They all give us information, or ask us to fill out a poll that has no value, and then beg for donations, every plea making it seem as if the fate of western civilization will be determined … Continue reading

Sometimes Photos Are Better Than Words

While these pics say as much as anything else, if you have watched the developments all day today you can only believe that both of these days are wandering in a daze. Bush sounded, as Chis Matthew said, unschooled and a little scary talking about panic etc. Before McCain arrived there was the framework of a bill that was affirmed by leaders of the Democratic party and ranking members of the Republicans. After he arrived, things quickly appeared to fall apart. The other possiblity is that the Republicans playing a political card by waiting to the last moment then making a bill available that was available earlier today. These is the weird set of scenario’s all of which are possible. … Continue reading
