Wakey, Wakey!

September 21, 2012

Four years…

Four years ago, the American people were pondering whether to give their vote to a principled, Vietnam veteran, a man who put his country first or an inexperienced community organizer.

We all know how America voted in November 2012… John McCain and America lost. America and the Western world have been paying the price ever since. The incredibly disturbing events of the past week or so have moved me to fire off a few posts again in the hope that Americans do not make the same mistake again. A strong leader is required… Someone who will not let radicals get away with murder and someone who will resuscitate America’s economy.

John McCain was a good man who played by the rules of bygone politics… “Keeping it clean.” In doing so, he let Obama off the hook on numerous key issues: Obama was not vetted by the media as a result.

Mitt Romney must increase the pressure on Obama and force the issues that matter into the public eye. It will be no easy task as most of the media are batting for Obama.

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.

Obama Ridicules Joe The Plumber

October 17, 2008

Can Senator McCain make one of his trademark comebacks? Yes, if the Democratic spin and smoke and mirrors trickery are seen for what they really are by the American people. Maybe this is beginning to happen…

Obama is seen here ridiculing the now famous Joe the Plumber. What is more, the Democratic crowd joined in the mockery. They are out of touch with America.

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.
