I’m Going To Kill Her

with one comment

I’m locked out of editing Cougars for Clinton and there’s a new and ridiculous post urging people to vote for Obama.  What kind of daughter pulls this kind of garbage?   Her cow of a mom won’t put me on the phone, but tomorrow she is so dead.  I raised her so much better than this!!  I have no daughter.  This thing has been up for a few days.  I am going to make her do a book report on every single Bill O’Reilly book and if I’m not satisfied I’m moving onto Hannity and I don’t even approve of reading books.

South Carolina Governor Warns Obama Worse Than Clinton

with 2 comments

Today on This Week, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford warned today that Barack Obama could be “as bad for the middle class” as Bill clinton was.  Stating that like Obama, Clinton said he wanted tax cuts for the middle class, Sanford raised the dire warning the an Obama presidency could wreak the same havoc on the economy of middle class Americans that Bill Clinton did.  Sanford who is considered a potential Republican Presidential nominee in 2012 favors tax breaks for corporations which would then trickle down to the average American the way that they have under President Bush.  With mere hours left before the election, Obama will have to work furiously to separate himself from Clinton’s economic legacy.

Apology Over Flag Flap

with 14 comments

For anybody who read my article Obama Has His Own Flag – I Bet the Colors Run I wish to apologize if my article conflicted with your own view of reality.  As it turns out, the flag which myself and many other conservatives believed to be an Obama flag was actually the Ohio flag.  Likewise, the supposed Clinton flag was actually a Colorado flag.  I would urge everybody to stop calling Ohio State.  It makes perfect sense that they would form the Ohio state flag with their marching band and this was not an act of taxpayer funded politicing.  This was a simple mistake on my part and I do not believe many people knew that every state had their own flag.

Since I made this post I have been attacked by many well-known bastions of anti-American socialism like Daily KOS, The Opinion Mill, and Cookinglight.com.  My only regret is that my mistake gave these ideologues fodder for their rage against a country I love so well.

I hate to admit it, but mistakes will happen in the course of this blog.  Even President Bush has made a mistake or two in his 8 years in office.  I never claimed to be perfect.  However, when I have made an error I have always apologized.  When I posted the details of the Keating Five scandal mistakenly believing it was Obama and Rezko I quickly made amends. Likewise, when I accidentally printed Nazi propaganda while rallying against poor people having children I admitted it. I will continue to take full responsibility for anything I print that may contradict the perceptions of reality of my readers.

I take my share of responsibility for this error, but before people blame either myself or Bob Grant I ask you to remember that Grant has had a long career of journalistic excellence and a mistake was bound to happen at sometime. Furthermore, a politician has a responsibility to not only avoid impropriety, but also the appearance of impropriety. The fact that we all so easily believed this about Obama leaves the blame squarely on his doorstep. If he had avoided the appearance of being so vain, none of us would have so easily believed this. I call upon Mister Obama to apologize to people like myself and Bob Grant who had our credibility hurt by this flag fiasco.

Our Sister Site

with one comment

I am very proud of my daughter Emily.  Though I’ve mentioned that she needs to lose some weight, she really has some wonderful other talents.  Her politics are a bit different than mine, but together we have put together a new website that I think is great called Cougars for Clinton.  The site is for Hillary supporters like herself who believe that the best way to honor Hillary is to continue to fight for her no matter how many times she begs them to stop.  My daughter is quite the chip off the old block and her post needed very little editing.  The two of us have decided that the best way to carry on Hillary’s struggle is to support John McCain.

Courting the Hillary Vote

with 5 comments

Janet Reno's love child? OK I have to admit, that's pretty funny.

Every now and then I like to reach out to the Hillary Clinton supporters who still aren’t supporting Obama.  I know that we don’t agree on most of the issues, but don’t let that stop you from supporting McCain.  As Republicans we learned a long time ago that if we relied only on people who agreed with us to support us we would never get the educated voter and we’d be doomed to be a minority party.  We must reach out and expand our base and that is where you come in.

There are two organizations I want to tell you about.  One is called COUGAR (It stands for Cut Obama Up Get A Republican).  This is an organization of brave women who have united to say that punishing Obama for any slights we found in the mainstream media is far more important than who will govern this country for the next four years).  All I can say is, “Right on” sisters.  The other group is Women For McCain.  I can’t urge you enough to take a look at their fine website for a woman’s viewpoint on why you should support McCain for President.

Critics of McCain are going to try and distract you from the issues.  They’ll point out the way he cheated on his first wife in order to marry the current Mrs. McCain, but let’s be honest after her car accident she got fat.  Would you really expect your husband to stay with you if you became a fattie and a wealthy heiress was interested in him?  It seems to me Carol McCain had a lot more to worry about with her debilitating pain than pleasing her man and that is more the pity.

Then there are the comments like offering up his wife in an X Rated beauty contest, or joking about women who get raped by gorillas, or calling his wife a cunt, or laughing when a questioner at a town hall meeting called Hillary a bitch, or joking about beating his wife, or voting against equal pay for women with the excuse that women should get jobs in coal mines, or said Chelsea Clinton was ugly because her father was Janet Reno, but remember John McCain was a POW.  These attacks only exist to distract you from the real issues.  McCain’s stand on the three issues most important to women and to Hillary supporters should supercede any disagreements with McCain on social policy or the economy or the Supreme Court.

1. You don’t like Obama and neither does John McCain.  This is the ultimate sympatico.  Together, we can show Obama not to take women for granted.

2. Inheritance Tax – Let’s face it women live more than men.  They face a much heavier burden from the inheritance tax.  McCain wants to drop it to 15%.   Odds are you’re going to outlive your husband you might as well enjoy it.

3. Jobs – Yeah McCain isn’t big on equal pay for women, but with his robust foreign policy and openness to bringing back the draft who do you think gains?  Contrary to popular opinion the most liberating times in this country for women in the workforce weren’t the 70s and 80s, they were World War I and World War II.  When the men are overseas those jobs still need to get done and that means better jobs and better pay for women.  If we’re in Iran next year and Russia 2 years after that, McCain will completely shatter the glass ceiling once and for all.

Let’s not allow the Democrats to distract us from what’s really important.  A McCain White House will be the best thing that’s every happenned to women in this country.

Is It Time for Obama to Concede?

leave a comment »

Following a disastrous showing in Puerto Rico (Why are foreigners voting in the Democratic primary again?) the pressure is once again on Barrack Obama to drop out of the Democratic primary before he does permanent harm to party unity.

The Clinton camp has clearly shown that if you eliminate the caucus states and count Florida and Michigan where Obama’s name isn’t on the ballot, she definitely has a slight edge in the popular vote.  By dragging this thing on Obama risks party unity as well as making it more difficult for Clinton to take on McCain in the Fall. 

On Saturday Obama made a serious miscalculation in giving Clinton a 69-59 split in the delegates even though he had enough votes for a 64-64 split.  This gesture just increases Clinton’s lead.   You must admire Obama’s tenacity, but I see little hope of him catching Clinton with only 2 primaries remaining unless you go simply by the delegate count.

If Obama does not concede he will forever be remembered as the man who was too stubborn to quit and that will pretty much end his future in politics.  He also stands in the way of the first female Presidential candidate and I don’t think it is right for him to stand in the way of history.  Perhaps with more experience, there could be a job for him somewhere down the road in Clinton’s cabinet.

Clinton’s Surprising Michigan Collapse

with one comment

In the Michigan primary, Hillary Clinton devestated Barrack Obama by taking 55% of the votes on January 15th.  Obama did so poorly that his name wasn’t even included on the ballot.  Today the Democrat Rules Committee will be meeting to decide how many of Michigan’s delegates should be seated and how many should go to each candidate.

What is astoninishing is Clinton’s recent Michigan collapse.  It is possible that as her name was the only one on the ballot she took Michigan’s support for granted, but the newest numbers show that Obama’s support has grown by over 40%.  According to the latest Rasmussen Poll shows McCain beating Obama in the state 43-42 and with a 45-42 lead over Clinton.   Obama is viewed favorably by 50% of the state’s voters compared to 47% for Clinton.  48% of Michigan votes believe Obama is the stronger candidate while 41% believe Clinton in.

So the big question remains what happenned?  Senator Clinton’s collapse from the primary where she so thoroughly demolished undeclared led myself and many others to believe she was untouchable in Michigan.
