Should Some People Not Vote? Two Clear Examples Why.

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Is McCain the new Black?  Black voters questioned on the street:

What happens when you question people who say they’re going to vote for Obama and ask them how they support his policies when you swap Obama’s policies with McCain’s?

It’s the voters responsibility to understand where each candidate stands on the issues, but voting for someone just because they’re of a certain color is extremely wrong.

These people were not tricked by clever questioning. The interviewer made an effort to be straightforward in how he posed the questions. So the Obama camp cannot complain about these interviews.

As the video below indicates, a lot of dumb people are going to cast their votes but here’s the problem I have;  Are those folks dumb because they’re not capable of critical thought or is it because they’re not given the information they need to make an  informed decision?  I would assert that it’s the latter.

It starts with the public schools.  Civics classes are all but non existent.  The history taught is of the revisionist variety.  (Case in point;   My 11th grade social studies text asserted that 17th century sailors used their own urine to brush their teeth.  It was a falt out lie.   Columbus didn’t piss into a cup so he could put his Oral-B to good use.)  If we’re going to change things, we’ve got to start with the schools…

Kudos to No-Libs.com with their I See Dumb People post.

Hank Williams Jr. New Song Praises John McCain

Tags: , , , ,

Country star Hank Williams Jr. has penned a tune for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin called ”McCain-Palin Tradition.”

Williams managed to get in the McCain campaign’s talking points that Obama has ”terrorist friends .” He also squeezed into the lyrics another Republican message, that the Democrats caused the financial meltdown by pressuring bankers to give loans to helpless bankers.

That’s what you call some good old, down home poetic license.

McCain – Palin Tradition
By Hank Williams Jr.

The left wing liberal media have
Always been a real close knit family
But, most of the American People
Don’t believe em anyway ya see
Stop and think it over
Before you make your decision
If they smell something
They’re gonna come down strong
It’s a McCain – Palin tradition

Now this old Union’s got problems
That is plain to see
The Democrats bankrupted Fannie Mae N Freddie Mac
Just like 1, 2, 3
The bankers didn’t want to make all those bad loans,
But Bill Clinton said you got to
Now they want a bail out, what I’m talking about
Is a Democrat liberal who doo


John N Sarah tell ya
Just what they think
And they’re not gonna blink
They don’t have terrorist friends
To whom their careers are linked
Yes, John is his own man
And Sarah fixed Alaska’s broken condition
They’re gonna go just fine
We’re headed for better times
It’s a McCain – Palin tradition

I am very proud of our country’s name
But no society is perfect
And we have had our stains
If I’m down at the coffee shop and
Somebody starts to give our flag friction
We say please move on
Cause we’re standing strong
That’s an old John McCain tradition


John N Sarah tell ya
Just what they think
And they’re not gonna blink
And they’re gonna fix this country
Cause they’re just like you N ole Hank
Yes John is a maverick
And Sarah fixed Alaska’s broken condition
They’re gonna go just fine
We’re headed for better times
It’s a McCain – Palin tradition

Some are bound to tell you I’m
Preaching to the choir
And that is very true
And we are going even higher
Like a mama bear in Idaho
She’ll protect your family’s condition
If you mess with her cubs
She’s gonna take off the gloves
It’s an American female tradition


They all want to know Sarah
Why do you hunt
John why do you fish
How could she be so smart and savvy
Such a ‘hey good-lookin’ dish
Yes John is his own man
And Sarah fixed Alaska’s bad condition
They’re going to get it right
We’re going to see the light
It’s a McCain – Palin tradition

Liberal Outrage: A Pro-McCain March In Manhattan

Tags: , , , , , , ,

A group of McCain-Palin supporters dare to march through the Upper West Side – and are met with hatred and rage for being infidels in the heart of liberal Mecca. Republicans are as out of place there as elephants at a donkey show. Area intellectuals jeer them well – just as they had been taught to do. FACT: The number of middle fingers in the "progressive" crowd is directly proportional to the number of PhD degrees in the ten-block radius

These useful intellectuals turn out to be not as peaceful, inclusive, and open-minded as they claim to be. Take a peek into the glorious progressive world they want us to live in – they display zero tolerance to the opposing viewpoint, yet they want to impose their rule over our lives. Fugedaboudit! Republicans should be lucky New York doesn’t have a Colosseum with lions.

Some of the occasional cheering passers-by are either out-of-towners, or foreigners – or could they actually be local Republicans who managed to survive the uncompromising "liberal" bullying? Say, what is a compromise between an open hand and the middle finger?

A bumpkin from flyover country might think that New Yorkers were booing al-Qaeda that’s bent on destroying their city. FACT: Islamic radicals would be more welcome on the Upper West Side than American patriots. The "liberals" always extend their sympathy for being bullied and rejected – not to American patriots, but to this country’s enemies.

"Liberal" elites believe that all ideologies are morally equal, except the one that supports capitalism and individual liberties – the only ideology that makes their lavish lifestyles possible. And so they’re driving it out of town, tarred and feathered. Republicans in New York: less equal than others.

When leftist politicians are promising you to bridge the divide, they are "selling you a bridge."

The leftist idea of unity is, and always has been, THE ELIMINATION OF DISSENT.

John McCain Pushed for Reform

Latest John McCain Ad regarding the state of the Economy:

McCain says Obama policies will deepen recession

Tags: , , , ,

Lagging in the polls, Republican presidential candidate John McCain unleashed a blistering attack Monday on his Democratic rival, saying the race comes down to a simple question: “Country first or Obama first?”

In his first public appearance since Friday night’s debate, McCain said Democrat Barack Obama advocates tax-and-spend policies that “will deepen our recession,” and voted against funding for equipment needed by troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“That is not putting the men and women of our military first,” he said.

McCain stressed his own record of opposing Republicans on key issues, and said, “When it comes time to reach across the aisle and work with members of both parties to get things done for the American people – my opponent can’t name a single occasion in which he fought against his party’s leadership to get something done for the country. That is not putting the interests of the country first.”

The speech was McCain’s first outside Washington since he announced abruptly last week he was suspending his campaign to concentrate on helping Congress agree on a bailout for the troubled financial industry. He drew heated criticism from Democrats who accused him of nearly derailing negotiations that were headed for success, and even some Republicans conceded privately he appeared impetuous and had not helped his own cause.

Recent polls also suggest Obama has regained a lead he held in the race before the Republican National Convention, where McCain’s choice of Palin energized conservatives and led to a short-term surge in his poll ratings.

Obama gets “Schooled” in First Debate

Tags: , ,

Special thanks go to Alex Charyna of PAWaterCooler.com for the updates.

Right out of the chute, McCain looks and behaves quite collected, at ease. Obama looks uncomfortable and wooden.

McCain hits big on the first question, concerning the bail-out. Obama strings rhetoric as McCain gives facts and substance.

Obama is asked to direct a comment to McCain, he instead, speaks directly to the moderator.

Side note-Obama is wearing a flag pin-

“The truth is that right after 9/11 I had a pin,” Obama said. “Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security.
“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest,” he said in the interview. “Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism.”

(ht to Alex for pointing that out to me)

McCain laments the use of earmarks as “a gateway drug”. Says that earmarks are one of the big spending issues that are out of control in government. He promises to veto earmarks ad naseum when he becomes president. Points out Obama’s ludicrous amount of earmarks.

Barry tells that he stopped taking earmarks for his home state. Of course! He hasn’t been in the senate chambers long enough this year to ask for any!

Obama states that earmarks aren’t the only problem…his $932 million in earmarks since he became senator would seem to me to be a big part of it.

The next question concerns their respective economic recovery plans…

For the record, McCain has never taken a dollar in earmarks for his home state of Arizona.

John Mentioned Barry’s definition of “rich” as it concerns the tax code…Barry comes back to say there are too many loopholes for the rich…I’d like to see what he paid last year in taxes!

They fence back and forth on tax breaks with nothing substantial to say.

Barry is putting forth the idea of energy independence, hybrid technology, keeping students viable in the world market, renewable energy sources, etc. Same old rhetoric we’ve been hearing from him, nothing new.

McCain is suggesting fiscal discipline, cleaning the dead wood out of the government agencies, from top to bottom, bottom to top. To essentially “scrub every agency of government”. He’s on fire!

Gaffe #1-Barry called McCain “Tom”

John is suggesting a spending freeze on everything except defense, veterans affairs, where Obama is for continuing funding education, McCain suggests that we can create jobs by building more nuclear power plants.

Gaffe #2: The moderator suggests that the next president will “rule” the United States.

Health Care, Health Care, Health Care…Obama wants to pay for it through (obviously) welth distribution through higher taxes…McCain says that the U.S.,government needs to stay out of the medical insurance business.

Obama Gaffe #2: He calls John “Jim”!

Obama says that McCain will be “business as usual”, McCain says I’m a maverick, and so is my running mate (props to SARAH!).

The next Question concerns the Iraq wr maybe becoming another Viet Nam.

McCain states that the war, ans subsequent surge is and has worked, and we will, under Petraeus, succeed, and come home winners, successful.

Obama states he was “brave enough” to stand up in the senate and oppose the war…busting chops about the cost of freedom and safety. He forgets that we need to be safe. States that we haven’t used our military resources wisely in Iraq. What war is he watching?

McCain just busted Obama’s chops over his support of  the troops, not visiting for over 900 days, never meeting with Petraeus…Barry’s face is priceless on the split screen.

McCain quips that Obama doesn’t know the difference between a tactic and a strategy! Priceless. Barry is reduces to interrupting and stuttering. He looks bad!

Now Barry is backpedaling on his previous stand on the war…he stated that he was for funding a war with a foreseeable end…I thought he was against funding the war?

Obama is constantly interrupting McCain…bad move, Barry!

McCain stated that Obama’s plan would “snatch defeat from the jaws of victory”…Great line!

On to Afghanistan…Barry is all for additional troops in Afghanistan, but that we also should tie the two together. So now he’s an expert on military ops?

He says we have to press the Afgan government, that they need to keep their people in line. (side note: he’s pronouncing Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc. like he’s lived there..oops, he has)

McCain is not ready to commit troops to Pakistan-he says the tribe mentality is very hard for us to be able to align ourselves with…true that. says that as we do need to work on Pakistan, we need to leave the decisions to General Petraeus.  Obama had stated that we need to invade Pakistan, McCain says :you don’t say that out loud!”. (Obama pronounces it “Pock-ee-stahn”)

(this ain’t easy…I now know how Alex felt when he live blogged the convention)

McCain’s record on national security issues, especially committing troops to combat, is stellar. McCain told the story of the mother of a service man killed in combat-she gave him her son’s bracelet and asked him to make sure that we win, that her son’s life wasn’t lost in vain. John rattled off the soldier’s name like it was his own…Barry looked at his wrist and said “I have a bracelet, too” (He had to look at his wrist to see the soldier’s name)

New question about the threat from Iran

McCain states that Iran having nukes will be a direct threat to Israel, and worries that there will be another Holocaust with a nuclear Iran.

He wants other countries to join with us to impose serious sanctions on Iran and can control the situation that way, if we work together. He goes on about the fact that Iran is supplying terrorists in Iraq with IED’s and such.

Obama says that the republican guard being a terrorist agency. Says that Iran’s strength has come from the war in Iraq. He claims that the policy (read war) of the last 8 years has been directly responsible for strengthening Iran.

Barry says sanctions will not work. By not talking to them, we’re not really punishing them, but strengthening them.

McCain says we should not have open dialogue with Iran, legitimizing their behavior. Reminds Barry that it worked when Reagan did it with the former USSR…and it worked. We don’t need no stinkin’ preconditions! Booyah!

Barry says: ‘but, but, but, but…” Claims he doesn’t necessarily not want preconditions…but it’s all Bush’s fault! Claims we need to sit down with our enemies and have a tea and crumpet party.

McCain says that he’s “not going to set the White House visitor’s schedule before he’s president…I don’t even have a seal yet”. Priceless jab!

Obama says preconditions mean preparation.


Obama sees them as a potential ally, although now they are perceived as a threat. Says we need to be tough with Russia, while allowing our “friends” to join NATO, if they meet the requirements. Claims that some of their nukes could find their way into the hands of al Qaeda…

McCain calls Obama naive for thinking that Russia and Georgia should both “back down from aggression” (I thought Georgia was defending their sovereign nation, not to mention the pipeline that runs through their land)

McCain supports allowing Georgia and Ukraine to join NATO…claims that the situation is difficult, but Russia should respect the borders of the other countries involved.

Obama just said that we should “forcefully object” to Russia’s resurgency…he copped that line from Demi Moore in “A Few Good Men”.

Alternative energy and economic recovery…McCain speaks, Obama interrupts…sheesh, what an amateur.

McCain upstages Barry on alternative energy, Barry gets flustered, interrupts, and says “let’s move on”. The sheer arrogance of this guy scares the bejeezus out of me (that he’s so close to maybe becoming president).

Are we going to be attacked again.

McCain states that we need to beef up security, especially along our borders.

Barry is reading from the democrat playbook, pointing our the Bush administrations foibles, no clear solution to offer.Quotes Ronald Reagan by saying that we need to once again become that “shining beacon on the hill”…this guy has never had an original thought, has he?

Barry equates Al Qaeda with borrowing money from China…whiskey-tango-foxtrot?

McCain delivers the coup de grace…says Obama lacks the experience in foreign affairs to the point that he still claims that the surge didn’t work, says he’ll take care of those who gave so much to keep the country safe, our veterans.

Obama says “my father came from Kenya” in the ’60’s…he came here for the American dream? he came here, got a free education and left his wife and son to pursue a career in Africa…some role model.

McCain gives a final statement that basically he’s the most qualified. I agree.

McCain-1, Barry-0

McCain Suspends Campaign; Working on Economy w/o Obama

Tags: , ,

Country First

MCCAIN: America this week faces an historic crisis in our financial system. We must pass legislation to address this crisis. If we do not, credit will dry up, with devastating consequences for our economy. People will no longer be able to buy homes and their life savings will be at stake. Businesses will not have enough money to pay their employees. If we do not act, ever corner of our country will be impacted. We cannot allow this to happen.

Last Friday, I laid out my proposal and I have since discussed my priorities and concerns with the bill the Administration has put forward. Senator Obama has expressed his priorities and concerns.This morning, I met with a group of economic advisers to talk about the proposal on the table and the steps that we should take going forward.I have also spoken with members of Congress to hear their perspective.

It has become clear that no consensus has developed to support the Administration’ proposal. I do not believe that the plan on the table will pass as it currently stands, and we are running out of time.

Tomorrow morning, I will suspend my campaign and return to Washington after speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative. I have spoken to Senator Obama and informed him of my decision and have asked him to join me.

I am calling on the President to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself. It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem.

We must meet as Americans, not as Democrats or Republicans, and we must meet until this crisis is resolved.I am directing my campaign to work with the Obama campaign and the commission on presidential debates to delay Friday night’s debate until we have taken action to address this crisis.

I am confident that before the markets open on Monday we can achieve consensus on legislation that will stabilize our financial markets, protect taxpayers and homeowners, and earn the confidence of the American people. All we must do to achieve this is temporarily set politics aside, and I am committed to doing so.

Following September 11th, our national leaders came together at a time of crisis. We must show that kind of patriotism now. Americans across our country lament the fact that partisan divisions in Washington have prevented us from addressing our national challenges. Now is our chance to come together to prove that Washington is once again capable of leading this country.

Biden: Obama Ad Mocking McCain very ‘Terrible’

Tags: , , ,

Or maybe the Title should be: Bungling Biden will ruin Obama – Part 3 (See Part 1 and Part 2)

Barack Obama’s running mate is at it again and says a campaign ad that mocked Republican presidential candidate John McCain as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate was “terrible” and would not have been done had he known about it.

Obama, McCain’s Democratic rival, launched the ad earlier this month, part of an aggressive push to slow McCain’s rise in the polls after he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate. It included unflattering footage of Sen. McCain at a hearing in the early ’80s, wearing giant glasses and an out-of-style suit, interspersed with shots of a disco ball, a clunky phone, an outdated computer and a Rubik’s Cube.
“He admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send an e-mail, still doesn’t understand the economy, and favors $200 billion in new tax cuts for corporations, but almost nothing for the middle class,” the ad says.
Asked about the negative tone of the campaign, and this ad in particular, during an interview broadcast Monday by the “CBS Evening News,” Obama’s running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, said he disapproved of it.
“I thought that was terrible, by the way,” Biden said.

Asked why it was done, he said: “I didn’t know we did it, and if I had anything to do with it, we’d have never done it.”

UPDATE: The Biased View – Comparing Obama and McCain

Tags: , ,

This is an example of the liberal biased media, early talk shows and other public forums.  In this segment, specifically, ‘The View’ is comparing the recent appearances of Barack Obama and John McCain.  Watch the differences for yourself:

UPDATE:  Someone posted this for us to review here at MediaCircus.com:

Charlie Gibson asked Barack Obama with the questions asked of Sarah Palin:

OBAMA interview with Charlie Gibson, June 2008
How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?
How does it feel to “win”?
How does your family feel about your “winning” breaking a glass ceiling?
Who will be your VP?
Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
Will you accept public finance?
What issues is your campaign about?
Will you visit Iraq?
Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
What did you think of your competitor’s [Clinton] speech?

PALIN interview with Charlie Gibson, Sept. 2008
Do you have enough qualifications for the job you’re seeking? Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
Aren’t you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
Questions about foreign policy
-territorial integrity of Georgia
-allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO
-NATO treaty
-Iranian nuclear threat
-what to do if Israel attacks Iran
-Al Qaeda motivations
-the Bush Doctrine
-attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan
Is America fighting a holy war? [misquoted Palin]
