Democratic Unity Event

Former Democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama came together in Unity New Hampshire for a Democratic unity event to promote Barack Obama for President. Both were effusive in their praise of each other, as the Democrats begin the process of healing after a bruising primary battle. It was a good start to this general election effort, and Obama continues to eclipse McCain in terms of coverage. And before you start crying media bias I ran into an interesting stat yesterday. Since becoming the presumptive nominee McCain has booked one (yes that is 1) campaign event on a weekend. (Statistic from Hardball show, Chris Matthews.) Maybe McCain figures that campaigning for President is a 40 hour job. Good for Obama, bad for Republicans!

    Now that we’re beyond Hillary, we can look forward to the first female VP, Sarah Palin, to become the first female President of the United States in 4 years!

    Your Honor,

    A couple of things;
    1. You get your statistic from a commentator who has chills run up his leg when he hears Barak (eye roll)? At least you are not embarrassed to admit it, although you should be).

    Before you jump on me, I will never quote Rush, et al.

    2. This campaigned, like a basket ball game, is most interesting in the last ten minutes. Long way to go. Some time too much talk is as bad as too little. Who knows what we will find out about your candidate as he continues to talk.

    Here’s what we know;

    A. His “friends” have a history of anti-semitism, corruption, hate for America.

    B. He will raise our taxes. He will claim to go after the wealthy and continue the Democratic class warfare, and their war on business. (Is that is a good way to secure jobs?).

    C. He will support socialistic agenda, beginning with the fairness doctrine. I wonder if he will support the nationalizing the oil companies as threatened by Hillary Clinton, and Maxine Waters and others?

    D. He is the most liberal of liberal senators.

    E. Worst of all he is of like mind with our Governor.

    F. He’s a consummate politician, promise means nothing (campaign finance jump), a constitutional lawyer (I support the 2nd amendment decision. When asked, in a TV interview, if he would support the DC gun ban is spite of the Supreme court decision, he said yes. Huh????).

    I wonder what makes Barak so different?

    One quick point in response. The Chris Matthews observation is either true or not true, regardless of his political views. If McCain has only campaigned on one weekend that is not really about ideology or political preference, but about doing what it takes to win.

    Your Honor,

    I repeat. Lot’s of time can further expose him as a political wank. So far he’s shown he’s no different than any politician. He’s an onion that needs more peeling.

    You do notice he’s avoided the direct town hall type meetings so far. Has Chris noted that?

    I repeat, no one cares except those that are committed until after labor day. By then John McCain can get plenty of rest for the final push.(after labor day.)
