9/30/2008 - The Debates
Posted in Unspecified

I'm not going to write much if the debates remain the way they are, boring and talking points. So if anyone wondered why I didn't write anything, that's why.

Nancy Pelosi thought she was clever when she tried to trick the Republicans into the bailout bill that was going to be ultimately a failure.
The Republicans were on board until they saw that all these Democrats start voting No and they start to wonder what is the deal here? Pelosi designed this scheme with her friends in the house to try to pin this on the Republicans and it has worked!
Obama is going to probably win the election because of yesterday's disaster in the market. This bail out is going to only cause more Americans to pay for the banks failings. We have to be happy that this didn't pass yesterday. We need some kind of plan, of course.
But this bailout is going to cost us $1 Trillion Dollars. Who will pay for it? WE are going to.

I am convinced Obama is going to win because of this and that people are going to be more worried about their jobs now. McCain is finished.

David Letterman, who we all know is a far leftist in his political views took shots at McCain for canceling his appearance. Was that fair? I'd say yes to a degree...

But, when you attack someone the way he did it got overboard.

 "This is not the John McCain I know, by God," Letterman said. "It makes me believe something is going haywire with the campaign." 


"Are we suspending it because there's an economic crisis or because the poll numbers are sliding?" Letterman asked.  

We can get a laugh from some of the jokes, but this is purely a cheapshot at McCain.

I don't think I'll be getting any political advice from David Letterman if I ever ran for office.

Is this a joke? This is purely political, John McCain is trying to come off as not being political but he is being that. He is a patriot, no question.

He loves this country. This is also a good way to save some money when you might be in need of a lot of contributions. The economy is the #1 issue now and McCain is trying to look like some hero by not putting ads

If anyone thinks this isn't political, you're living on another planet.

I think Obama played his cards right by not accepting McCain's offer to stop putting ads out on both sides. Obama knows that McCain is stalling to buy time to address the Republican failure with the economy.

The real test here is going to be whether people will elect McCain now with his party taking the blame for their failure.

Congress and the Federal Reserve are going about this whole thing in the wrong way in my opinion.

Raising capital gains tax is the one thing they should be doing, but let's be honest here...they have a bunch of lobbyists who are going to benefit from this bail out and they will make money off it.

Congress is making the money off of our suffering as a free market. No wonder we're on a path to socialism in this country! This is the first step in that direction, what's next? We have to bail out GM and Ford? This is going to get messy as it keeps on going. 

 We can only sit back and watch the free market be taken away from us.

Expansion of Government in my mind is never a good thing. Look at how Europe and China are run. State owned healthcare (which has been proven to be a failure in Canada especially). and high income taxes on all the citizens. 

This takeover does nothing but allow them to control people more now, this is a radical leftwing person's dream. If any of you really believe that having the Government tell you how to live is a good thing, you're mistaken.

The CEO's will get their money regardless of this whole bail out, they are the winners here. We are paying for their failures and I have to say I don't know how Obama if he wins isn't going to tax everyone with this disaster. 1 trillion dollars is basically what it will be, you can't just tax the "rich" to get all of that money.

I hope this doesn't turn us into a communist state one day, we're in the first stage of that path.

Today I had a volunteer for Barrack Obama show up at my door. We talked about the election and the candidates and she was trying to get me to say who I was voting for, but I never really told her. 

I consider myself in the middle with this stuff and don't really want to say who I am voting for. I have made my mind up and I believe the candidate will be a good President. For them to be asking about undecided voters is a big deal. The Democrats seem pretty worried about Sarah Palin and white voters especially. They have good reason to be worried, most Hillary supporters I know are for McCain now so Hillary has another shot.

I know I haven't been writing daily as much, the truth is I have been busy and I have to keep up a life outside of writing on here like the rest of you. So for my subscribers I apologize.

Have any of you had people call or ask you about who you will vote for?

There has been a lot of speculation as to how much influence Todd Palin has in Alaska. The leader of the Republican side of the State Senate said this week that he was in meetings that she was having with Sarah Palin and found it odd.

What does one expect this guy to do? Sit and watch reruns of football games, go fish? I think that having a person to get an opinion from is important if they are your spouse and understand what's going on.

Hillary was a close advisor to Bill and praised for it. So is it unfair that Todd Palin is being accused of having too much power and influence?

I'll let you guys decide

Well the government is just putting itself into more debt that is going to cost us more tax money. 

In America, we tax everyone to keep our flow of money and hope that people buy new cars and clothes.

This is going to get us to a depression at some point in time, we can't tax everyone and assume it'll bail these banks out and spend $10 billion a month on 2 wars.

I don't know how McCain is going to counter this, Obama really has a winning issue in this election. Sure he can attack Obama's experience and say that he never managed federal money and etc. 

Obama better cash on this issue if he wants to win this election, this is really his only shot to victory. McCain has been beating him in most of the polls and Palin is identifying with white small town voters.

 We shall see what happens next.

“Let’s be clear,” Mr. Obama said sternly. “What we’ve seen the last few days is nothing less than the final verdict on an economic philosophy that has completely failed.”

With the Dow Jones dropping 500 points in one day, it brought back a lot of worry to a audience that was more focused on Sarah Palin and lipstick on pig remarks these past few weeks.

The harsh reality has set in again that one of these two guys will have to deal with a disaster of an economy in the next 4-8 years. We have finally gotten back to the real issues that we need to talk about.

Obama has been criticized that he doesn't get it by Rush Limbaugh and that he is surrounded by lobbyists who made millions of dollars with these failing banks.

Whether or not this is all true isn't the issue, we all know politicans are liars and they take our money and spend it like it theirs. There won't be any real change from either of these guys, lets be honest about it.

There seems to be a counter to the Palin joke she made that being a mayor is sort of like a community organizer,

except you actually get things done. The Democrats are saying that "Jesus was a community organizer" which has a unique identity behind it.

Who are they going after with that statement? Christians, why? Because they elected Bush when he defeated Kerry. They're a huge voting block.

Obama has failed to win over the "Red Neck" support he would need to pickup counties where Hillary Clinton won in the primaries. They're moving to Palin because she is pro-gun and she gives off this small town mom vibe that gives a lot of small town families a reason to look towards her. Biden is a Washington card carrier, a good man but flawed with being in the Senate for 30 years or so. 

He doesn't give small town people this connection towards identifying with their views and how they feel about family values and etc. He is just considered an old Senator who's been apart of the same old crowd.

McCain did until Palin came along, he was just from the same crowd and is a card carrier too. He isn't really the focus on the ticket which has helped these small town voters go to Palin in the polling.

If Obama and Biden want to win, they need to not only get some Christians, but they need to get white women and small town "Red Necks" if they want to beat McCain in the fall.

Sarah Palin is under investigation for firing a state trooper who was married to her sister and this story has become a focal point in the case being made against her and McCain.
For the people who think I have been too soft of her, you are wrong. It is not about her being a woman, I felt the news networks were being so aggressive that I'd say it about any female who ran if they were under assault.
She has hired an attorney after saying she would cooperate. A lot of people would percieve that as guilt already by getting a lawyer involved.
Palin is still the story as far as the election goes. Obama is making the right turn, but he isn't the dominant story in the campaign anymore.

We'll see what happens with this circus story later on, I doubt she'll get into any trouble.

It's about time Barrack Obama started to talk more about the issues again and attack McCain on the issues like he was doing before Palin.

This might help his chances of winning if he can keep the argument on the economy and keep the focus off Palin. 

It won't be easy, she's a woman and the networks are still attacking her (Minus FOX and CBS). She is pretty popular now, an overnight star. 

Obama has to get his support among whites higher if he wants to edge McCain out. A new poll came out giving McCain a small lead with whites to put him over the top.

9/12/2008 - Palin everywhere
Posted in Unspecified

Sarah Palin's fanatical coverage hasn't stopped. We keep hearing about her,and the more we do the better for her chances at winning. 

The televised news stations apparently don't get the idea that they need to stop attacking her so much.

They're clearly being sexist with their questions of her experience now, this is the third week we have to see her on CNN , FOX, etc.

I'm pretty tired of it, but I must say I do like her character. She is tough and doesn't let these people intimidate her.

They need to get over Sarah Palin and cover other stories now. We know who she is.

Barrack Obama has hit the lower point of his campaign this year. With Palin taking all the news headlines and women flocking to her, no wonder he is desperate to attack.

Being an attack dog is good only if you're being smart about it, clearly making remarks about lipstick a week after Palin made a joke in her speech was a very BAD idea.

Obama has to attack the economy, not Palin. These attacks only band women together because they want to unite against the "evil men" who dare say anything bad about a female candidate.

This clearly has been a bad month for Obama and I think if women keep flocking to Palin, he's toast.

The hard left feminist/man hating crowd will still vote for Obama for some of the issues with Palin's pro-life stance, but those "hockey moms" are where the swing vote is.

AMD has lowered the prices on the Phenom Triple Core's , for a regular user these are great deals, the low to mid $100-150 range if you round the prices.

If you're building a machine that's low end and you want to keep it for a while these might be a good choice, or a intel e8400 for $169.

It was only 2 weeks ago Barrack Obama became the first African American nominated to a major party. 

The historic speech and this almost invincible looking ticket emerging. Suddenly a woman who has a interesting accent when she speaks and a mom of 5 children stole the show.

She has changed this election. I think if this trend of McCain leading in the polls stays this way for the next 8 weeks, Obama will be finished.

He has to get back to attacking McCain and not Palin, he's going to get women mad when they see him doing that.

It's getting interesting now.

Barrack Obama is on Letterman  this week, this is clearly an attempt to get the character issue back into the race.

We all know David Letterman hates Bush and has a very bias way of talking about politics.

I am not a fan of his show because he isn't fair about his commentary, sure he's had McCain on the show. 

This is going to be interesting to watch, Obama is definetely a crowd draw. we'll see if this gets any votes for the ticket.
