Obama’s Speechwriter Jumps ship.

I have not heard a word about this on any news channel… I do hear the crickets chirpping.

Obama Speechwriter Switches to McCain; Ignored by MSM

Imagine if a speechwriter for John McCain had switched sides and announced she was going to vote for Barack Obama. Would she not be featured bigtime in the mainstream media complete with new thrills running up Chris Matthews leg?  Well, this did happen except that it was an Obama speechwriter, Wendy Button, who became disillusioned with The One and switched to supporting McCain. Here are the highlights of Wendy Button’s explanation of why she made the switch:

Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional.”

Young lady, only when the switch is made from Republican to Democrat will it be mentioned in the MSM. They search the country for “lifelong Republicans” who are going to vote for Obama but when an Obama speechwriter switches over to the “Dark Side,” all you will hear from the MSM is the sound of crickets chirping.

My favorite part of the article:

“..The final straw came the other week when Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (a.k.a Joe the Plumber) asked a question about higher taxes for small businesses. Instead of celebrating his aspirations, they were mocked. He wasn’t “a real plumber,” and “They’re fighting for Joe the Hedge-Fund manager,” and the patronizing, “I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber.”

Having worked in politics, I know that absolutely none of this is on the level. This back and forth is posturing, a charade, and a political game. These lines are what I refer to as “hooker lines”—a sure thing to get applause and the press to scribble as if they’re reporting meaningful news.”

I have been putting up with Obamatrons coming to my site and citing former soldiers, republicans, conservatives and even some rednecks that will be voting for Obama…

I have recently heard of several McCain supporters that I never knew supported him, folks in the military, VERY HIGH RANKING current and former Armed forces men and women, I am hearing of many folks jumping from the Obama camp because of his stances on Taxes, Guns, and the UNANSWERED Questions about his past.

One thing I’d like to know is, how Obama is going to make government “MORE TRANSPARENT” when Joe the plumber can’t ask a question?  I wonder what the approval rating for GWB would be if he subscribed to Barack Hussein Obama’s media policy? I would bet GWB would have a great approval rating if he was able to answer only the questions he liked…(Don’t get this line confused with Bush Bots, it is an observation and an opinion that the media has played a huge role in the approval ratings of our elected officials.)

Fascism coupled with Socialism is coming to America and it is coming on the wings of the Messiah Barack Hussein Obama. :hole:

I wonder why Powell Endorsed Obama? Race maybe?

Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama for president

WASHINGTON – Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president, describing the Illinois senator as a “transformational figure.”

Powell says both Obama and Republican John McCain are qualified to be commander in chief. But, in an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he said Obama is better suited to handle the nation’s economic problems as well as help improve it’s standing in the world.

Powell expressed disappointment in the negative tone of McCain’s campaign, as well as in his choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee. Powell says he does not believe Palin is ready to take over as president,

Funny as hell to me, the Bruddas are sticking together but if “Whitey” chooses not to follow the “Messiah” Whitey is RACIST!!!! :dancinghappy:

I love the way Powell says “Sarah Palin is not ready”, yet Obama has not stepped in an office of leadership other than leading a crew of thugs in ACORN, a Group of LAWYERS, or some “LIKE MINDED” Socialists. BUT Sarah Palin is not ready?

This is a typical race play, Obama is the BLACK Candidate, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Condi Rice came out to support him too…. This is a RACE about RACE now believe it, no matter what the media is trying to say.. IT is a racial power play, have at it my brothers.

John McCain and Barack HUSSEIN Obama and the ISSUES

John McCain and Barack HUSSEIN Obama and the ISSUES

Townhall did all the research, and a lot of us don’t go there very often so I thought I’d bring it to you here:

A look at where Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain stand on a selection of issues:


McCain: Opposes abortion rights. Has voted for abortion restrictions permissible under Roe v. Wade, and now says he would seek to overturn that guarantee of abortion rights. Would not seek constitutional amendment to ban abortion.

Obama: Favors abortion rights.


McCain: Favors unspecified boost in U.S. forces.

Obama: Would add about 7,000 troops to the U.S. force of 36,000, bringing the reinforcements from Iraq. Has threatened unilateral attack on high-value terrorist targets in Pakistan as they become exposed, “if Pakistan cannot or will not act” against them.

(I believe telegraphing what and where and who you are sending is a piss poor way to lead a military, and it’s NO CHANGE from what’s been going on in the Bush admin. and if you are unwilling to fight in Iraq, you better not start a war in Pakistan.)


McCain: The co-author of McCain-Feingold campaign finance law is running his general campaign with public money and within its spending limits. He urged Obama to do the same. He applied for federal matching funds for primaries but later turned them down so he could spend more than the limits. The Federal Election Commission belatedly approved his decision to bypass the primary funds, but rejected McCain’s claim that he needed no such approval. He raised more than $160 million before having to stop to accept the $84 million in public money for the fall. McCain accepted primary campaign contributions from lobbyists.

Obama: The presidential campaign’s fundraising champion has brought in more than $450 million. He is raising private money for his general election, despite his proposal last year to accept public financing and its spending limits if the Republican nominee does, too. Obama refuses to accept money from federal lobbyists and has instructed the Democratic National Committee to do the same for its joint victory fund, an account that would benefit the nominee. Obama does accept money from state lobbyists and from family members of federal lobbyists.


McCain: Ease restrictions on Cuba once U.S. is “confident that the transition to a free and open democracy is being made.”

Obama: Ease restrictions on family-related travel and on money Cuban-Americans want to send to their families in Cuba. Open to meeting new Cuban leader Raul Castro without preconditions. Ease trade embargo if Havana “begins opening Cuba to meaningful democratic change.”


McCain: Has supported expansion of the federal death penalty and limits on appeals.

Obama: Supports death penalty for crimes for which the “community is justified in expressing the full measure of its outrage.” As Illinois lawmaker, wrote bill mandating videotaping of interrogations and confessions in capital cases and sought other changes in system that had produced wrongful convictions.

(Don’t disagree with either of them here, well other than the time it takes to actually kill an offender, the time should be measured in minutes rather than years. IF there were video tapes and confessions, does that mean we can eliminate the 500 appeals???)


McCain: He is not proposing a federal voucher program that would provide public money for private school tuition, in contrast to his proposed $5 billion voucher plan in 2000. Only proposes expansion of District of Columbia’s voucher program. Sees No Child Left Behind law as vehicle for increasing opportunities for parents to choose schools. Proposes more money for community college education.

Obama: An $18 billion plan that would encourage, but not mandate, universal pre-kindergarten. Teacher pay raises tied to, although not based solely on, test scores. An overhaul of No Child Left Behind law to better measure student progress, make room for non-core subjects like music and art and be less punitive toward failing schools. A tax credit to pay up to $4,000 of college costs for students who perform 100 hours of community service a year. Obama would pay for part of his plan by ending corporate tax deductions for CEO pay. Has backed away from his proposal to save money by delaying NASA’s moon and Mars missions.

(No disagreement here either)


McCain: Favors increased offshore drilling and building 45 nuclear power reactors by 2030. Crystal Benton, speaking for McCain, said he proposes no federal spending to help in construction of the plants. McCain believes the goal can be achieved with loan guarantees in existing law, with resolution of the impasse over waste disposal and with financial advantages the industry would have as a zero-emissions power source under his cap and trade program, she said. McCain opposes drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Proposed suspending the 18-cent a gallon federal gasoline tax but idea got no traction. Global warming plan would increase energy costs.

(BUT I bet Sarah will change his mind)

Obama: Now would consider limited increase in offshore drilling. Opposes drilling in Arctic reserve. Proposes windfall-profits tax on largest oil companies to pay for energy rebate of up to $1,000. Opposed suspension of the gas tax. Proposed releasing 70 million barrels of oil from Strategic Petroleum Reserve to boost supplies. Global warming plan would increase energy costs.


McCain: Opposes constitutional amendment to ban it. Says same-sex couples should be allowed to enter into legal agreements for insurance and similar benefits, and states should decide about marriage. Supports the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which denies federal recognition of same-sex marriages and gives states the right to refuse to recognize such marriages.

Obama: Opposes constitutional amendment to ban it. Supports civil unions, says states should decide about marriage. Switched positions in 2004 and now supports repeal of Defense of Marriage Act, which denies federal recognition of same-sex marriages and gives states the right to refuse to recognize such marriages.


McCain: Broke with President Bush on global warming. Led Senate effort to cap greenhouse gas emissions. Favors plan that would see greenhouse gas emissions cut by 66 percent by 2050.

Obama: Ten-year, $150 billion program to produce “climate friendly” energy supplies that he’d pay for with a carbon auction requiring businesses to bid competitively for the right to pollute and aimed at cutting greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050. Joined McCain in sponsoring earlier legislation that would set mandatory caps on greenhouse gas emissions. Increase federal fuel economy requirements beyond 35 mpg.


McCain: Voted against ban on assault-type weapons but in favor of requiring background checks at gun shows. Voted to shield gun-makers and dealers from civil suits. “I believe the Second Amendment ought to be preserved _ which means no gun control.”

Obama: Voted to leave gun-makers and dealers open to suit. Also, as Illinois state lawmaker, supported ban on all forms of semiautomatic weapons and tighter state restrictions generally on firearms.


McCain: $2,500 refundable tax credit for individuals, $5,000 for families, to make health insurance more affordable. No mandate for universal coverage. In gaining the tax credit, workers could not deduct the portion of their workplace health insurance paid by their employers.

Obama: Mandatory coverage for children, no mandate for adults. Aim for universal coverage by requiring employers to share costs of insuring workers and by offering coverage similar to that in plan for federal employees. Says package would cost up to $65 billion a year after unspecified savings from making system more efficient. Raise taxes on wealthier families to pay the cost.


McCain: Open to helping homeowners facing foreclosure if they are “legitimate borrowers” and not speculators.

Obama: Tax credit covering 10 percent of annual mortgage-interest payments for “struggling homeowners,” scoring system for consumers to compare mortgages, a fund for mortgage-fraud victims, new penalties for mortgage fraud, aid to state and local governments stung by housing crisis, in $20 billion plan geared to “responsible homeowners.”


McCain: Sponsored 2006 bill that would have allowed illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S., work and apply to become legal residents after learning English, paying fines and back taxes and clearing a background check. Now says he would secure the border first. Supports border fence.

Obama: Voted for 2006 bill offering legal status to illegal immigrants subject to conditions, including English proficiency and payment of back taxes and fines. Voted for border fence.


McCain: Favors tougher sanctions, opposes direct high-level talks with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Obama: Initially said he would meet Ahmadinejad without preconditions, now says he’s not sure “Ahmadinejad is the right person to meet with right now.” But says direct diplomacy with Iranian leaders would give U.S. more credibility to press for tougher international sanctions. Says he would intensify diplomatic pressure on Tehran before Israel feels the need to take unilateral military action against Iranian nuclear facilities.


McCain: Opposes scheduling a troop withdrawal, saying latest strategy is succeeding. Supported decision to go to war, but was early critic of the manner in which administration prosecuted it. Was key backer of the troop increase. Willing to have permanent U.S. peacekeeping forces in Iraq.

(I dont like it, but it is a real possibility)

Obama: Spoke against war at start, opposed troop increase. Voted against one major military spending bill in May 2007; otherwise voted in favor of money to support the war. Says his plan would complete withdrawal of combat troops in 16 months. Initially had said a timetable for completing withdrawal would be irresponsible without knowing what facts he’d face in office.


McCain: “Nothing’s off the table” when it comes to saving Social Security.

Obama: Would raise payroll tax on wealthiest by applying it to portion of income over $250,000. Now, payroll tax is applied to income up to $102,000. Rules out raising the retirement age for benefits.


McCain: Supports relaxing federal restrictions on financing of embryonic stem cell research.

Obama: Supports relaxing federal restrictions on financing of embryonic stem cell research.


McCain: Pledged not to raise taxes, then equivocated, saying nothing can be ruled out in negotiating compromises to keep Social Security solvent. Twice opposed Bush’s tax cuts, at first because he said they were tilted to the wealthiest and again because of the unknown costs of Iraq war. Now says those tax cuts, expiring in 2010, should be permanent. Proposes cutting corporate tax rate to 25 percent. Promises balance budget in first term, says that is unlikely in his first year.

Obama: Raise income taxes on wealthiest (250k) and their capital gains and dividends taxes. Raise corporate taxes. $80 billion in tax breaks mainly for poor workers and elderly, including tripling Earned Income Tax Credit for minimum-wage workers and higher credit for larger families. Eliminate tax-filing requirement for older workers making under $50,000. A mortgage-interest credit could be used by lower-income homeowners who do not take the mortgage-interest deduction because they do not itemize their taxes.

(This is good for talking points but it is not practical, those 80 billion in tax breaks for the poor, 40% of Americans don’t pay taxes, so where do they get the 95% tax break? they get a check which is called WELFARE and coupled with his child tax credits, we get WELFARE Babies in the hood getting pregnant for the cash.)


McCain: Free trade advocate.

Obama: Seek to reopen North American Free Trade Agreement to strengthen enforcement of labor and environmental standards. In 2004 Senate campaign, called for “enforcing existing trade agreements,” not amending them.

ALL the BOLD areas are areas I DISAGREE WITH THE CANDIDATE and the RED Highlights are my reasons). As I said before the differences are only in a couple of areas, HOWEVER; those areas are HUGE to me.. Abortion, Gun Control, Taxes and Possible SCOTUS appointments… But the fact is there is not THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE between the two, and as my friend TexasFred says.. If this is the best we had to offer against Barack HUSSEIN Obama we deserve to have Obama as President….*HEAVY SIGH*

Barack Hussein Obama should carry Ohio’s state flag wherever he goes..

Do you think Ohio might go to Obama in the election?

Post Debate post, prior to the Debate.

Post Debate post, prior to the Debate.

Ok, I predict B. Hussein Obama said “Bush’s failed policies” 20 times, McCain said “My friends” at least as many times, and I don’t trust neither of them to cut my grass.

HOWEVER; One candidate did do something I admire, HE has done somethings that takes GUTS and Character, he has actually put his country and brothers in arms FIRST. IF someone can point me to a time which B. Hussein Obama has put his Country first, has put his fellow AMERICANS first, and HAS actually stood his ground against the flow in an unpopular CAREER limiting move, as in going against the grain of his political party… Anyone???? Didn’t think so.

Obama's Friend

I posted about a month ago that the economy would become the hot button issue, the sky is falling and only Obama can save it according to the Obamatrons. BUT I think this is a cycle and the economy will return after Nov 4th, you will be amazed at the quick turn if Obama wins, almost like a light switch, things will be better, the butterflies will fly and flowers will bloom… BULLSHIT!

if you can’t vote for McCain based on one issue, YOU can’t vote for Obama based on one issue. Walking away and not voting is NOT an option. IMO.

Who is better for the country? McCain by a landslide, and if folks are too damn stupid to see it then they deserve what they get. I have placed McCain/Palin signs everywhere, I am doing everything within my power to bring the media brainwashed crowd to see the truth. There are NO Obama lemmings here that can handle the truth, all they know is the mantra of “CHANGE”. They have not read the Obama plan, they do not know about his past relationships, and once those things come to light, and coupled with the knowledge of McCain’s character they are moving their votes toward McCain/Palin.

Lies of Obama

Especially the Hispanics;The very folks Obama is counting on in this state are flocking off the Obama wagon, the reason is ECONOMICS, when informed of Obama’s tax and spend plans, his liberal leanings on abotion and his lack of experience, Hispanics here say “No Mas Obama”. Moct Hispanics are Catholic and Abortion is a NO-NO… So I think this election is going to be interesting but McCain still has a chance as long as the medias love for Obama is countered with truth.

The economy is tied to the Republicans because the MEDIA refuses to shine the light on the DEMOCRAT controlled congress. IF there were a DEMOCRAT in the Whitehouse and a REPUBLICAN controlled congress, the light would be on Congress….Media bias is so rampant that even they can’t deny it anymore.

The economy tanked because a robust economy HELPS the Democrats PERIOD, and the Media helps fuel the “Despair” that Democrats live in.

The Sky is falling the Sky is falling, we are doomed, surrender now, run away, hide…Those are all DEMORAT opinions, and I for one am damn sick of the whining bastards.

Stolen from Grouchy Old Cripple

John McCain and Tom Metzger.. Who knew?

John McCain and Tom Metzger.. Who knew?

A recent story was leaked that John McCain attended several functions over the past 10 years funded by Tom Metzger, John McCain denies these charges but there is photographic evidence showing John McCain and Tom Metzger sharing drinks, laughing and attending large galas together. There are documents that suggest John McCain and Tom Metzger have been hanging out at least one day a week for over 20 years.

It was also revealed in an exclusive MSM article that David Duke contributed large sums of cash to John McCain’s campaign. Recently, documents were obtained that show David Duke and White Aryan Resistance donated many thousands of dollars to help propel Mr McCain to a position of power in order to repair the damage done by the African American citizens.

Also FOX news is reporting that Mrs John McCain is very angry that her country is keeping a white man down, she is not proud of her country and feels she is being castigated by the media and all Blacks are against her husband because of the color of his skin.

Of course the above is false about McCain, but it is basically true about B. Hussein Obama. Switch Metzger for Wright, and David Duke for Ayers, and switch the wife’s statements…. How about that? Does that sound like B. Hussein Obama should be in elected office?


HELL NO, but that is exactly what we have now, and the lemmings keep piling on with the so-called “Facts” they are facts as they see them, but they are nothing more than fluff, There is only one man in the race that has put his life on the line for others, He is John McCain and if nothing else that shows far greater character than B. Hussein Obama.

Elitest Obama

Oh And then there is this from the New York Post

CLEVELAND – Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked.

The huge effort by a pro-Obama group, Vote Today Ohio, takes advantage of a quirk in the state’s elections laws that allows people to register and cast ballots at the same time without having to prove residency.

Republicans have argued that the window could lead to widespread voter fraud because officials wouldn’t have an opportunity to verify registration information before ballots were cast.

Among the volunteers were Yori Stadlin and Vivian Lehrer of the Upper West Side, who got married last week and decided to spend their honeymoon shepherding voters to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

Early today, Stadlin’s van picked up William Woods, 59, at the soup kitchen of the Bishop Cosgrove Center.

“I never voted before,” Woods said, because of a felony conviction that previously barred him from the polls. “Without this service, I would have had no way to get here.”

I really do miss America and very soon the world will too. The “loophole” in voting laws in Ohio is part of the problem, if Obama was an honorable man, he would not sit back and watch a travesty occur in his name. This is voter fraud of the highest order, and it’s only a matter of time before the Democrats start going through death certificates to pad the ballot box more.

Kerry Obama

McCain and Palin’s court is what we need.

McCain and Palin’s court is what we need.

The liberal nutbags are all in a twitter, they are worried about Sarah Palin’s impact on the McCain’s ticket. I stumbled across this at the Huffington (Too stupid for words) Post:

McCain’s Court: Change We Don’t Need

There has been much debate about whether Sen. John McCain is a candidate of change. But in one area, McCain is unquestionably a reformer. He would almost certainly make fundamental changes in the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court.

McCain has said that, should he be president, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito “would serve as the model for my own nominees.” He regularly attacks what he calls “activist judging,” and he described a recent ruling vindicating the right to habeas corpus as “one of the worst decisions in the history of this country.” McCain has repeatedly said that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be overruled.

If McCain is elected, change would clearly be coming to the U.S. Supreme Court. And in constitutional law, the Republican presidential nominee is anything but conservative. Once skeptical of the idea that the court should overrule Roe v. Wade, he now invokes the clichés and code words of the extreme right. His votes have matched his words, for he has been a proud and enthusiastic supporter of President George W. Bush’s most extreme appointees to the courts of appeals.

Recently McCain complained of “the common and systematic abuse of our federal courts by the people we entrust with judicial power. For decades now, some federal judges have taken it upon themselves to pronounce and rule on matters that were never intended to be heard in courts or decided by judges.”

In his view, the “system of checks and balances rarely disappoints,” but “there is one great exception in our day”: the Supreme Court. McCain aims to eliminate that exception. It is more than mere speculation to suggest that with judicial appointments, McCain may well follow the extreme right-wing of his party.

The court is already dominated by Republican appointees, and in the last 20 years, it has shifted dramatically to the right. The next president is expected to be able to appoint at least one — and possibly as many as three — new members. Even a single appointment would likely shift constitutional law in major ways.

The right to choose remains sharply contested within the Supreme Court — and the Republican Party and the pro-life movement have long sought to eliminate that right. The McCain-Palin ticket plans first to “return the abortion question to the individual states” and then “to end abortion at the state level.”

This is the real deal guys, the most idiotic liberal trash like Hufpo readers even see it. They know why this election is so important, it is truly a matter of life and death.

I want the next SCOTUS judges to be more to the RIGHT than the ones departing. The robe wearing elitists that will be leaving have RUINED our nation, they have been responsible for GENOCIDE, they have been responsible for the moral compass of our nation dropping below the gutter level.

IF the HUFPO Readers see the real issue why is it so hard for US on the right side of the aisle to see it? Vote McCain/Palin if for no other reason than to see if Ruth Bader Ginsberg can hang on another 4 years so her seat is filled by someone as liberal as she is.

We need a hard RIGHT turn from the SCOTUS, this court has left the reservation on several issues and it has made the “Thug life” easier, Enemies of America stronger, and killing the innocent seem normal.


There is no guarantee that McCain will pick a solid Conservative judge, but he sure as hell won’t pick a Ruth Bader Ginsberg type libtard.

McCain Speech, He did GOOD.

McCain Speech, He did GOOD.

McCain did what he had to do, he managed to get me a little pissed off at a couple of things he said; but overall he nailed his biggest speech ever. If half of his story is true, and half of his record as an elected official is true, this should be a landslide in McCain/Palin favor.

Unfortunately, the powers of the liberal belief structure has been in play for many years, such as removing religion from schools, frivolous law suits, removing words like honor, integrity, and responsibility from the vocabulary of our youth, and making excuses for the kids that misbehave. WE have successfully made the voters of today so stupid that Obama is actually being considered to lead the free world.

What worries me is this:
California has a “Maverick” so to speak in charge. A RINO by all measures. Arnold S. has tried to work across political lines to get things done in California, he has succumbed to certain laws, bills and other legislation or should I say compromised, and now HE needs some help from the very same Democrats he has been reaching out too… They are quickly stabbing him in the back for party and career sake, the whole time looking into the media’s camera and blaming the Republicans….

I am concerned that we are seeing a mini-DC preview in California.

Look at California Politics to see what happens when you have a RINO in charge, dealing with a Liberal Congress. Think McCain, Pelosi and Reid… ugh. There is one bright spot though, Arnold doesn’t have Sara Palin in his corner, Arnold has a super liberal LT Governor John Raymond Garamendi (idiot)

Some might say, well if they were both LIBERAL it would be better… Uh HUM.. Been there done that.

Gray Davis and Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante. BOTH DEMS. Recalled because of poor performance (Just like every Governor in California faces a recall attempt by someone, Gray Davis was the only one unseated in Cali History and only the second one in US history)

So WHAT DO WE DO BUSHWACK?… I’m glad you asked:

The Solution is simple:

In this election we need to give McCain the tools he needs to accomplish, what he says he wants to accomplish, I have heard very little in his speeches that would lead me to believe that he would destroy our country, hell if Bush didn’t accomplish that, McCain sure the hell wont. I think McCain is RIGHT on in most instances and I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

In order to do that, WE need to make sure he has a WORKABLE Congress.

Going into this election, the Democrats are at an advantage because most of the seats (22) are held by Republicans. Thus, they have fewer seats (12) to defend.

Eight of the 33 are first-term Senators; only one of these is a Democrat. One, Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) was re-elected in 2002 after retiring in 2000.

There is one special election, in Wyoming (which will elect two Senators in November).

Five senators have announced retirement.

And 1-Tim Johnson (D-SD) is still recovering from brain surgery.

* Sen. Wayne Allard (R-CO, announced 1/15/2007)
* Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID, resignation announced then rescinded)
* Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM, announced 10/3/2007)
* Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE, announced 9/10/2007)
* Sen. John Warner (R-VA, announced 8/31/2007)

Here are some seats up for election and We need to turn the D’s to R’s and Keep the R’s.


I believe we need experience and wisdom at the top, we have some real problems in the world and sitting around a camp fire chanting koom-by-ya is not going to fix them.

Under an Obama White House, I am absolutely 100% positive he will be a party first president, so what we would have is; in essence the same thing we have in California. The Republicans would then go on the offensive/defensive mode, and Obama has a very shady record as it pertains to reaching across the aisle, which would produce another DO NOTHING CONGRESS.

McCain has put HIS party on notice that he is willing to go against them to get things done. Obama has NOT done anything like that, even though HIS party has been in charge of BOTH House and Senate for the past 2 YEARS, AND DONE NOTHING!

I think we as VOTERS can vote change as in Obama, which in my humble opinion will be more like California politics, only on a much larger scale. OR we can give McCain a shot at fixing whats broke, and IMO after his ordeal, his sacrifice, and his experience I think we are in good hands with John McCain. (Sarah Palin will be there too and that makes me very comfortable,)

Liberals are scared, what can we expect?

Liberals are scared, what can we expect?

Here is what I expect to happen over the next couple of days.

1. The economy in the media will be worse than it was during the recession. The stock market sell off will be equated to the sky falling and panic will be stoked by the Democrat leaders. NOTHING can  be seen as good until the Obamamessiah takes over the WH.

2. The Iraq conflict will see more and more BAD news being reported, the Insurgents/Terrorists will be more active, more explosions more dead Americans and civillians..all to benefit the Democrats platform which is endorsed by AQ and several other Islamic Jihadi’s.

3. Hurricane recovery after one of the hurricanes currently brewing will be criticized ruthlessly and Katrina will be brought up by Obama at every chance he gets. However; Barrack Hussein Obama will not mention Blanco or Naggin at all.

These are the expectations we all should be prepared for, The economy grew a little bit last month, but no mention, Iraq had good news lately No mention, and Gustav was handled well but little mention.

The Libtards in MSM and the Democrats as a whole are scared of the McCain/Palin platform, they know they can’t match the resume and they need their friends which are also AMERICA’S enemy’s to give them a hand. They will.
