Obama Not True To Word; Liberals Value Some Lives

June 28, 2008

It was hardly surprising that Barack Obama flip-flopped on the issue of using public-funded financing for the Presidential campaign. Obama’s opinions change with the wind. Whatever seems to be the best thing to do at the time will be what Obama does. At this point, he knows he can escape almost scot-free when it comes to his political u-turns, as he is still the blue-eyed boy in the eyes of many in the media. The fact that he has broken his promise on this issue of campaign financing should have resulted in much media scrutiny of his character and integrity; one knows John McCain faces these character examinations should he so much as sneeze at the wrong time.

Sadly, it is also not unexpected that the liberals have continued to pump out negative, distorted attack ads even at this early stage in the campaign. They continue to use the misquoted “100 years” comment despite the fact that McCain was very clear about the circumstances of troop presence in the Middle East. One of the latest ads supporting Obama shows a woman and her baby; the woman angrily tells the viewers that her son will never be in the US military. To paraphrase, she states that McCain will not get her baby – alluding to the fact that McCain is prepared to send American troops to foreign countries to safeguard American values of freedom and democracy.

It is somewhat ironic that such liberals, who are against the notion that their offspring should have the freedom to choose to join the US military, are the same people in favour of abortion, which removes the right of a human being to live. It seems strange that they have no qualms about destroying life in its early stages, but are concerned to protect the lives of humans later on - even going as far as promising to try to prevent their offspring from exercising their right to lead their lives as they see fit.

These contradictions in values are part of the liberal package and, therefore, part of the Obama package.

 

Olbermann’s Self-inflated Ego…

May 6, 2008

Keith Olbermann’s ego, which he personally inflates every night with the aid of the usual cronies of the liberal elite media, must surely be in danger of bursting. Once a minor satirist, now a self-promoting apologist for all things anti-American, Olbermann’s show has survived for tworeasons. Firstly, it is on a cable news network that few care to watch. Secondly, he’s taken the easy option of being a Bush-basher, an anti-war, anti-American, and anti-Western Civilisation ‘journalist’ – something that is guaranteed to gain him good press in the wishy-washy world of the liberal media.

Tonight, once again, he took the opportunity to attack Senator McCain. The criticisms of McCain were exaggerations of the facts at best, or childish lies at worst. His partner in crime this evening was a certain Matt Taibii, dubious author of a deeply troubling book that supports the anti-American conspiracy ideas behind 9/11 among other disturbing notions. They took it in turns to take swipes at McCain, to back each other up and to mock America. At one point, Olbermann made light of the “post-9/11″ world – he is an offensive cretin if he does not believe most people’s lives in the western world were altered by 9/11. Our whole outlook on the world, our security, religious extremism had to change.

Olbermann and Taibii spoke in circles and contradictions; at one point, criticising McCain for changing his opinions, and then pseudo-praising him for not blindly sticking to certain conviction. One would hope a politician could modify his views on issues over the course of several decades – it would be very concerning if he held exactly the same views in 2008 as in 1988. The world is constantly changing.

Taibii guffawed when mentioning that McCain had voted against his own bills in the Senate. Neither he nor Olbermann bothered to mention that he voted against some of his own proposed bills owing to their final state and content when they were presented to senators for the vote.

I do not want to waste any more of your time with Olbermann quotations or comments. All I will add is the following… Olbermann has put his eggs in the Obama basket. Two peas in a pod… two leftist elitists, out of touch with the people and often offending middle America. Hopefully, 2008 will bring an end to their negative, anti-American tripe they both try to force down the throats of their audience.

McCain – Man of Compassion and Integrity

April 14, 2008

John McCain’s popularity across party lines has as much to do with his character as with his political views. The recent article, The Great John McCain Story You’ve Probably Forgotten by Michael Lewis at Slate.com, is a reminder of McCain’s genuine compassion for his fellow man regardless of party line.

Veterans For McCain

April 14, 2008

Despite the mainstream media’s attempts at painting a different picture, Mccain’s support among veterans remains strong.

The following site has some useful links and information about why veterans are backing McCain to be the next Commander-in-Chief… Mad Irish Man…

McCain on Tibet

March 20, 2008

It is encouraging to see John McCain releasing such a forceful statement on the atrocious actions of the Chinese government…

STATEMENT BY JOHN MCCAIN ON TIBET

For Immediate Release

Contact: Press Office

703-650-5550


ARLINGTON , VA — U.S. Senator John McCain today issued the following statement on the situation in Tibet :

“The unfolding tragedy in Tibet should draw the attention of the entire world.  I deplore the violent crackdown by Chinese authorities and the continuing oppression in Tibet of those merely wishing to practice their faith and preserve their culture and heritage.  I have listened carefully to the Dalai Lama and am convinced he is a man of peace who reflects the hopes and aspirations of Tibetans.  I urge the government of the People’s Republic of China to address the root causes of unrest in Tibet by opening a genuine dialogue with His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.  Reports of shutting down YouTube and confiscation of SIM cards are disturbing and reports of multiple deaths are far more so, especially in a year when China is preparing to host the Olympic Games.  I urge the Chinese authorities to ensure peaceful protest is not met with violence, to release monks and others detained for peacefully expressing their views and to allow full outside access to Tibet .”

Cheney: “So?” – Well said!

March 20, 2008

The media is up in arms at Vice-President Dick Cheney’s latest comments on the war in Iraq. The following dialogue took place during an interview with Martha Raddatz for ABC’s Good Morning America…

CHENEY: On the security front, I think there’s a general consensus that we’ve made major progress, that the surge has worked. That’s been a major success.

RADDATZ: Two-third of Americans say it’s not worth fighting.

CHENEY: So?

RADDATZ So? You don’t care what the American people think?

CHENEY: No. I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls.

The grand hoohaa has been over his use of the word “so?” in the sense of ‘so what?’ I do not see what the problem is. Great leaders the world over are not fussed by the views of the general public which change with the wind. I find it interesting that the left side with opinion polls and demand that the President act in way that would court popularity with the masses on the issue of war. The public are not in a position to make decisions about wartime tactics and strategies, and yet the media and the Democrats attack Bush and Cheney for not kowtowing to the whims of the people.

That is not how democracy works. We elect politicians to make those decisions. The media seem to want this war on terror to be waged based on quasi-referenda, that is opinion polls. If the democratic nations of Europe and North America were ruled based on the fluctuating views of the general population, most countries would have the death penalty, some form of repatriation for many minorities and civil rights for homosexuals would be non-existent.

Political leaders have to make decisions which are not necessarily popular. Considering most leaders are voted in with less than 50% of the vote (remember, many people do not even vote), it is hardly surprising that opinion polls consistently show low approval ratings for leaders in most countries in the free world.

Kudos to Cheney for once again saying what he thinks and sticking to his principles. In the upcoming Presidential election, the man of principle and integrity who will not back down just to curry favour with the electorate is the man America needs right now. That man is, of course, John McCain. Obama merely wants to be popular and wants everyone around the world to like Americans; he will achieve the latter with regard to the extremists by leading America in retreat waving the white flag of surrender. In doing so, many of America’s Allies will lose respect for this great nation.

McCain will stand tall and steadfast. McCain’s America will be very unpopular with terrorists, anti-Americans, undemocratic rogue states, and all those who are willing to let America (or its Allies) be attacked again (ie the non-interventionists). These people will not like what McCain will do in the face of threats to America or its allies. So what?
