Don’t Judge Obama

Posted in 2008 Election on October 30th, 2008

Dont judge Obama by his actions. Dont judge Obama by the friends he keeps. Dont judge Obama by his what he says. Dont judge Obama because if you do, youre a racist

Don’t judge Obama by his actions. Don’t judge Obama by the friends he keeps. Don’t judge Obama by his what he says. Don’t judge Obama because if you do, you’re a racist.

Of course if we can’t judge him by his actions, his friends, or his words then all we would have left is his race. Nice trick that! Remove all legitimate methods of judgment and then call – or let your surrogates call – your detractors racists.

Michelle Speaks Truth

Posted in 2008 Election on October 29th, 2008

Michelle Obama, wife of presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama has drawn a lot of flak for various of her comments during the campaign. She’s a hard-hitting woman of no uncertain opinion and this has caused her to be occasionally reviled for her heartfelt but ill-advised rants and declarations. She does speak truth as she sees it though.

If you cant run your own house, then you cant run the White House.

— Michelle Obama

I think that is a very wise observation. If a candidate cannot properly manage and nurture that which is close to them, how can anyone expect them to properly manage and nurture the nation?

Sadly, like all truths Michelle’s wisdom is a two-edged sword that twist in the the hands of its wielder.

If Michelle’s husband can not successfully look after his constituents in Chicago how can anyone trust him to be President of the whole nation? If Barack Obama was willing to sacrifice the most vulnerable of his own constituents to the greed and corruption of his campaign supporters and business partners, how can trust him to be President of the whole nation?

Sen. Obama, talk to your wife; she may well be wiser than you.

Hillary’s DNC 08 Speech

Posted in 2008 Election on August 27th, 2008

On Tuesday night, the second night of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, Sen. Hillary Clinton stood up in front of the crowd of Democrats and delivered a speech. It has generally been hailed as a very good speech.

It was a concession speech!

Clinton never used the word “concede,” but that is what the speech was all about – Hillary giving up the race and supporting Obama as the Democratic Nominee.

Now the Democrats will have to wait and see if Clinton can manage to sway her supporters. So far the response has been mixed, with some some Clinton supporters seeming willing to support Obama and others somehow seeing this as another example of mysogyny in America.

Any thoughts?
