Eddie Haskell charm

Early this year I predicted an Obama/Clinton ticket competing with a McCain/? ticket. I also predicted that as a losing proposition for John McCain because overall he isn’t that far removed from his Democrat rivals, with a noticeable exception being his stance on defense.

My how things have changed, and the outlook for a Republican president, albeit not a die-hard conservative Republican president, is looking better and better each day. I have learned a lot more about Sen. McCain and like most of it. He is more gutsy than I thought, less prone to be swayed on Iraq than I suspected, more of a pro-traditional family candidate and especially in the pro-life guy.

Somewhat on the sideline during our nation’s ObamaNation fascination tour, has been Hillary Clinton. Did Mrs. NoPersonality really think she had a fair shot against Mr. Obama? Or was she, and is she still, just staying in the game either hoping for or planning for a big Obama campaign crash? She claims to be done campaigning, but I don’t count her out of the running yet. Heck she may have just decided it would be smart to let the well financed Mr. Obama pay her bills before dropping the sand bag on his head. I don’t recall anyone ever referring to her as dumb, conniving, manipulative and scary? Yes. But dumb? No.

EHWhich leaves me with the presumptuous presumptive Democratic Party nominee. Like with Senator McCain, I have learned more and more about Senator Obama over the last few months. Unlike Sen. McCain though, my opinion of Barack Obama has transitioned from a somewhat harmless but charismatic unknown, to a well connected and very dangerous person. Very dangerous with respect to his passion for the socialist/communist model and very dangerous from his apparent hatred of traditional American views. I’m not saying we should be afraid of Mr. Obama personally, but we should fear for our nation’s future when we look at the laundry list of his friends, aquintences, partners and those who are cheering him on towards victory. The sad part of this story is how so much of our nation is being duped with his Eddie Haskell charm.

Today, I was happy to find that the RNC is actively working to call Senator Barack “Eddie Haskell” Obama on all his bologna. MeetBarackObama.com is a site they have launched to introduce America to both the man and his agenda behind the smile. Here is a little sampler.

No qualified presidential candidate should ask you to take a leap of faith.

Look before you leap. Look before you donate. Look before you vote.

Barack Obama is not right for our nation.

In fact, Barack Obama is so so so not right for our nation, that I would rather vote a McCain/Clinton ticket than an Obama/anyone ticket.

John McCain, apparently not moderate

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Yesterday I referred to John McCain as a moderate, but upon reading at the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) website, I find that I might be mistaken. They have opened my eyes. In an endorsement of their pro-abortion candidate Barrack Obama, they made this eye opening claim.

Too many voters think that McCain is a moderate. Can someone who’s voted anti-choice 125 times out of 130 opportunities on abortion and other reproductive-rights issues be a moderate?

Wowser! Out of 130 opportunities, John McCain made 125 choices to protect the life of a child. By God, he has right wing whacko written all over him. I mean, putting the life of a helpless child over self centered endeavors; what the hell is up with that?

Oops, did I write hell? Oh yes, I did and it was because I meant hell, as in the place you don’t want to hang out in after you die so you should make better choices while here on Earth. Choose life.

Senator McCain more trusted than Democrat contenders

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

0530 rasRasmussen Reports ended April ’08 with Voters Trust McCain More than Either Democratic Candidate on Key Issues, highlighting how he is more trusted by Americans on the Economy, the War in Iraq, National Security, and Taxes.

Fast forward to the end of May ’08, as in a few days ago, and we find Senator Obama’s glow fading as Rasmussen reports McCain Trusted More Than Obama on Economy, Iraq, National Security.

And they aren’t reporting little squeaker leads. How about the issue of National Security where John McCain bests Barrack Obama 53% to 31%, or the War in Iraq where again Senator McCain dominates Senator Obama 49% to 37%. And the Economy? Again Senator McCain clearly leads Senator Obama 47% to 41%.

As a moderate, John McCain better represents America than either of his socialist leaning potential contenders. President McCain Has a nice ring to it.

Conservative leanings

mccain and ellen I might fault Senator McCain for being a bit too moderate on some issues, but there will be no faulting him for being wimpy on all the conservative issues. 

How many candidates would sit down with Ellen DeGenres and reiterate their position against same sex marriage, especially on national TV. 

DeGeneres tried to sway McCain’s opinion by explaining to the senator that she views the issue in the same way as when blacks and women didn’t have the right to vote.

“Women just got the right to vote in 1920, and blacks didn’t have the right to vote until 1870,” she noted, adding, “It just feels like there’s this old way of thinking that we are not all the same. We are all the same . . . You’re no different than I am.”

“I’ve heard you articulate that position in a very eloquent fashion,” McCain countered. “I just believe in the unique status of marriage between man and woman, and I know that we have a respectful disagreement on that issue; and I along with many, many others wish you every happiness.”

No appeasement there, just strong, respectful, conservative and right.  John McCain will make a fine president.
