What’s worse…Godless or God-believing Dems?

October 31, 2008

On the one hand, there’s a furore surrounding allegations of connections between Democrat Kay Hagen and a group of atheists – hence, the “Godless” charge.

On the other hand, we have the Barack Obama camp seeing nothing wrong in the rants of the allegedly Christian and God-believing Jeremiah Wright.

Obama’s Not (W)Right For America

October 31, 2008

While John McCain has been a man of principle all his life, putting his love of country before himself, Barack Obama has used relationships with numerous people, regardless of their clear and explicit disdain and, in some cases, hatred for America, to further his own political career bearing little regard to any principles or morals.

Only one of these candidates seems suitable for the job of President. John McCain.

Catch another glimpse of Obama’s mentor and pastor of twenty years, Jeremiah Wright. Obama’s judgment is very poor and it is clear that his choice of mentor/pastor/family friend means he cannot be the man to lead America in these troubling times.

McCain Holding Back; Obama Hanging on

September 27, 2008

The first Presidential Debate, which took place last night in Mississippi, offered no real surprises. John McCain gave solid answers to everything thrown at him and did not seem to perturbed by any particular issue. This should be expected. After all, he has been following his principles for years and he can draw upon genuine experience. Barack Obama, well-known for his speeches but not so renowned for his debating skills (Hillary Clinton generally out-debated him during the primaries), deflected most questions well without having to commit himself to any particular view point that might cause problems later. He was slick and well-practised but not terribly authentic.

Report Card: McCain put in a fair performance but needs to up the ante in future debates. Obama knew his answers but did not connect with the people. Both can do better.

McCain v Obama: Round 1 – No KO

September 27, 2008

Last night’s debate did not offer up any major gaffes by either of the candidates. Barack Obama had clearly learned his lines very well, while John McCain gave his usual solid debating performance. Unlike Obama, McCain’s answers were natural and authentic as he drew upon his years of experience in the fields of foreign policy and protecting the American taxpayer. It was pleasing to see Obama have the decency to actually admit on numerous occasions that McCain was right about a variety of issues.

McCain seemed to be the overall winner by virtue of his attacking style in the debate, as compared to Obama’s rather defensive answers. Obama was on the back foot for much of the foreign policy part of the night owing to his lack of experience.

After this first debate, it seems unlikely either candidate will make a disastrous mistake in the debates to come, although Obama will have to be careful that his smug smirks and guffaws when McCain is speaking are not repeated.

Obama’s Playing Politics

September 26, 2008

Barack Obama, forced into participating in the ‘bailout’ talks in Washington when, in his own words, he would have preferred to have been elsewhere unless contacted by ‘phone, continues to play party politics by blaming Republicans for scuppering the bailout deal. Let’s not forget, he did not feel the issue was significant enough to want to involve himself actively in any decision-making. No doubt, Obama wanted to avoid having to make a clear decision on such a contentious issue; why spoil his reputation for being a fence-sitter?

By comparison, John McCain took action rather than carrying on with his political campaign as if nothing was happening. He has taken a risk in suspending his efforts to be President but, in doing so, he has demonstrated again to the American people, the American taxpayers, that he will put their interests first ahead of Wall Street “Greed is Good” companies, ahead of Washington politics, and ahead of his own interests.

The American people will remember this come 4th November. If they want a man of action, they will vote for John McCain.

McCain: Historic Postponement… Country First

September 24, 2008

John McCain puts the health of the American economy at the top of his agenda ratherthan selfishly thinking of his own Presidential campaign… The debate on Friday will be about foreign policy, McCain’s strength and the Democratic Party’s nightmare, and yet the Senator is prepared to put everything on hold to try to battle the economic slowdown.
