I am going to write a normal, Monday Monday – Race Report in a bit but first I just have to air a grievance.
The robo-call smear campaign that is coming out of the McCain camp is the most shameful political trick since Bush robo-called against McCain in 2000 saying he’d had a black child in an illicit affair (truth – he adopted a kid from Bangladesh). The McCain smears are lies of the same order. The country is in crises and this and an SNL appearance by Palin is the best the party can do? Not only is it morally bankrupt, it is pathetic and desperate.
Colin Powell has said it much better than I ever could. It takes about 7 minutes to listen to what he has to say. And please don’t belittle the man by saying he is supporting Obama because they are both black. How insulting. Powell has clearly thought this through and if you think he’s just supporting a brother you are absolutely obligated to listen to what he has to say.
send race report please! DYING FOR DETAILS!!!
Amazing stuff in the thought processes out here. I Conversed with a man today who told me all democrats are pro-abortion. It occurs to me that the middle of this country has been horribly misled. There is HUGE difference between pro-choice and pro-abortion. They are actually not the same thing… I was stunned, and I see, once again, how people will believe what is fed to them with out really thinking it through. The whole problem of 1 issue voters is that they aren’t looking at the big picture. What we really need to examine is the difference between the Democratic approach of putting people at the bottom to work so they can pay their bills, and the money can trickle up the line, vs the Republican approach of making it easier for the people at the top to make money and pay a smaller percentage of taxes so that maybe, just maybe they will create new jobs that some of those people at the bottom might get if they are lucky. One method works miracles for the wealthy and essentially does very little for the middle and lower classes, while the other gets the economy moving- a bit more slowly- but much more surely. Slow and steady will still win the race! It is just critical that we focus on the big picture and look at all the issues- not just the emotional ones.
