  1. My peeve of the day.. It's too dang bright out. I am the Dragon of Darkness afterall, dammit.
  2. Wright, Pflegler, Rezko, and Ayers might be "issues" that you can't look past, but to democrats and anyone else with a halfway rational mind (ie, most moderates and independents), they're non-issues. If you hope to derail the Obama campaign, you'll have to come up with far more substantive issues than those. Those old dogs simply aint huntin' no more. If you wanna persist with issues pertaining to guilt by association, you'll have to find a way to explain away McCain's involvement in the Keating Five; his involvement with lobbyists who lobby for Iranian, Chinese, and Burmese Junta interests; and his involvement with lobbyists who lobbied for UBS. Google these McCain campaign associated names and see what you find: Charlie Black, Tom Loeffler, Peter Madigan, Doug Goodyear, Doug Davenport, and Phil Gramm. McCain lobbyist Connections McCain lobbyist connections to dictators When a UBS lobbyist wrote McCain’s housing policy The Lobbyist McCaim Won't Fire You'll also have to find a way to explain away McCain's role in covering up the Jack Abramoff scandal. You know who Jack Abramoff is, don't you? Yeah, thats right,.. he's a former lobbyist, now convicted felon serving time in federal prison. First of all, if you've been paying attention, you'd realize that Iran has been the primary beneficiary of George Bush's misguided invasion of Iraq. You do realize that, don't you? Secondly, McCain is not going to beat Obama in November, and certainly not based on some silly caricature of Obama like the one you've presented here. The majority of the American people are smarter than to buy into that drivel. I understand that you don't like Barack Obama, but can't you at least make reality-based points upon which to claim Obama is not a better candidate than McCain? With all due respect, Pb Derigable, I think Brent Scowcroft's assessment of Obama's diplomatic approach of dealing with America's enemies carries a bit more weight than your silly "willing to sit in the backseat of a car with rouge leaders and have a make out session" caricature. And btw,.. while you might think it was Barack Obama who said this about Iran: "We need to figure out a way to develop some leverage . . . and then sit down and talk with them. If there is going to be a discussion, then they need something, too. We can't go to a discussion and be completely the demander, with them not feeling that they need anything from us", you might be surprised to learn that it was in fact George Bush's current Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, who said it.. last month. [Washington Post, Thursday, May 15, 2008] As our allies pull out of Iraq ahead of us, they are acknowledging the reality that the Bush regime and John McCain (and their self-deluding supporters) are unwilling to acknowledge: John McCain is on the wrong side of every major issue in this political campaign. Barack Obama is on the right [ie, correct; winning] side of every major issue.
  3. Brands on the other side of the republican elephant: "Domestic Spying" "Habeus Corpus" "Extraordinary Rendition" "Tax Cuts for the Wealthy" "Outing CIA Agents" "Heckuva Job" "NeoCons" "Cronyism" "Indefinite Detentions" "Alberto" "Rove" "No Child Left Behind" "Creationism" "Imperialism" "Unilateral"
  4. ^^ It seems to me you oughta be worried about McCain's campaign. The guy can hardly go a day without putting his foot in his mouth or selling out what were, at one time, his principles. How anyone can support this guy and not be completely embarrassed about it is beyond me. Obama, on the other hand, is on a roll. He's captured the hearts and minds of our nation.. and the world. Hilary Clinton is already telling her supporters to back Obama and (no real surprise here) they are. Major Clinton Backers Rally Around Obama. Face it, 'my friend' (as McSame would say), Americans want change. Obama is fresh, inspiring, charismatic, and intelligent. He has everything it takes to lead America in a new direction. He's the new face of America. If you think Obama being Black is a negative for him, I'd say you're behind the times and/or you're simply expressing your own race-based biases. America is a progressive country at its roots, and America is ready for an African American POTUS. And Americans are entirely fed up with Bush politics and policies, and McSame is not only a bumbling embarrassment, he's stale, uninspiring, old (school), and represents nothing but a continuation of Bush politics and policies. Latest case in point: Adviser says McCain backs Bush wiretaps. If you want more of the same tired, failed Bush policies, then by all means vote for McSame. But the rest of us.. we recognize and embrace the fact that the times they are a changin'! Bob Dylan says Barack Obama is 'changin' America June 5, 2008 His 1964 track 'The Times They are a-Changin' became the anthem for his generation, symbolising the era-defining social struggle against the establishment. Now Bob Dylan - who could justifiably claim to be the architect of Barack Obama's 'change' catchphrase - has backed the Illinois senator to do for modern America what the generation before did in the 1960s. In an exclusive interview with The Times, published today, Dylan gives a ringing endorsement to Mr Obama, the first ever black presidential candidate, claiming he is "redefining the nature of politics from the ground up". Dylan, 67, made the comments when being interviewed in Denmark, where he stopped over in a hotel during a tour of Scandinavia. Asked about his views on American politics, he said: "Well, you know right now America is in a state of upheaval. Poverty is demoralising. You can't expect people to have the virtue of purity when they are poor. "But we've got this guy out there now who is redefining the nature of politics from the ground up...Barack Obama. "He's redefining what a politician is, so we'll have to see how things play out. Am I hopeful? Yes, I'm hopeful that things might change. Some things are going to have to." He added: “You should always take the best from the past, leave the worst back there and go forward into the future." Dylan's endorsement contains much symbolic significance. The legendary singer-songwriter, who has an art exhibition opening in London next week, became a focal point for young people worldwide when he released the album 'The times they are a-changin'," including the famous song of that name, in 1964. The track, which he wrote as the social liberation of the '60s astonished politicians and parents, included lines urging people to accept and embrace what was happening around them. Memorable lines included: "Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call. Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall," and: "Come mothers and fathers throughout the land, and don't criticise what you can't understand. Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command. Your old road is rapidly agin'." http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/worl...icle4076339.ece
  5. Oh, I get it. You mean 'in comparison to GW Bush', right?
  6. With all due respect, Gainsbarre, your assertion that John McCain is "brilliant" is a misstatement of epic proportions. Over the course of the election you will see that John McCain is no less a nitwitted warmongering embarrassment to America (and to the republican party) than George Bush has been. This election will expose McCain for the blundering nincompoop that he is. Mark my words, my friend. You're right though, this is going to be the best, most exciting, election the US has had in decades. Barack Obama is going break the race barrier and in doing so he's going to make Americans proud to be Americans again and, I hope, he's going to make our allies proud to be our allies again.
  7. the presumptive dem party nominee and next President of the United States just gave a great victory speech. Obama's speech was as fresh, uplifting and inspiring as John McSame's was dry, stale, and utterly boring. Congratulations to Barack Obama! On with the general election! :banana: :banana:
  8. I share your enthusiasm! And yes,.. I'd love some champagne, thank you! Obama still needs 9 more delegates, but what the heck.. let's do it!!
