    I’m something of a centrist, but it seems to me that the way to our hearts is through common sense and fiscal frugality, this can work for McCain.

    Obama has a great history of wasting tons of other people’s money on stuff that fails to accomplish the goals of the vast majority of voters (Chicago Annenberg Challenge).

    McCain says he wants to freeze spending until we figure out just where all the money is going and how much of it is being wasted.

    Obama claims that McCain wants to tax insurance benefits, that sounds scary and regressive the way Obama puts it, if it gives ME pause, I’d say it’s an effective attack.

    McCain says that he will conduct a full investigation into what exactly happened to make it necessary for us to part with $700 Billion, that is very VERY good!

    Many of the American voters will not necessarily care so much if the Chicago Annenberg Challenge is attacked as liberal tripe. They will care deeply, however, that $100 Million dollars were spent on idealogical propaganda at the expense of academic educational programs when we rank near the bottom of the civilized world academically. Many busy women can become very passionate indeed when the time and attention of entire families is wasted by a ton of resource draining propaganda! Especially if you bring home the fact that said resource draining propaganda is coming to your kid’s school and out of your paystub! You gotta make it personal!

    That line of reasoning tends to be attacked by true believers, but it’s going to take more than idealism to get McCain elected. It will take a return to the principals of Ronald Reagan. Those two things, contrary to popular belief, are NOT one in the same!

  • Obama denies protection for infants of botched abortions [Jill Stanek rebuts Obama obfuscations]

    I would like to propose a bit of insurrection, if I may. The Pro-Abortion bunch are both male and female, the ladies are the only ones who get the attention from the opposition, but the male portion of this constituency is far and away the nastier of the two. The guys who support abortion on demand do so because they don’t want to give up their lifestyle of uncommitted sex with no responsibilities. The women look at it more as being denied the chance to earn a livelihood, by and large it’s a self defense issue and most hate it and look for alternatives even as they fervently support the issue. I’m certain that Obama himself belongs to the former group, and most female feminists belong to the latter group. Obama addressed his father’s day speech to the issue of male responsibility (in an attempt to kiss up to the Clinton supporters, I believe). Even the little bit of male responsibility he advocated, laced with monetary rewards from the government, stirred up an uproar among the guys! This wedge issue can be, and as a moral matter should be, exploited! So many female Clinton supporters have up close and personal experience with the “yuck” factor of Barack Obama. Whether they will act upon their convictions remains to be seen, but one thing is sure, a sizeable portion of center and right oriented voters would take to the streets if saw what these women have seen of that campaign. There are a LOT of very distasteful male Obama supporters out there, how can we introduce them to the American public?

    If this goes the way I think it will, he’ll offer up a mealy-mouthed defense designed to offer a shadow of a doubt regarding his stand on abortion (why he keeps thinking that he can use a standard of proof more suited to a murder trial than a race for the highest office in the land is beyond me). Then surrogates (probably connected with his campaign) will start sliming McCain on issues deemed to be a deal breaker for evangelicals. Personally, I don’t think evangelicals will fall for it because as a group they hate liars and they despise equivication, to say nothing of being, well, um, conservative. He’s not going to try to do this legitimately, that’s for sure!

    I can’t help but noticing that the Obama campaign appears to be trying to make our guy angry, presumably so that they can crow triumphantly from now until kingdom come about what a danger it is to have a president with a temper. Clark’s argument was a strawman, trying to put words in McCains mouth and then arguing against his own (Clark’s) bogus argument. That’s irritating, no-one likes to be misrepresented. To my mind, all of the idiotic BS has a primary purpose of trying to make McCain lose it (yes, avoiding talking about Obama is the secondary purpose). A way out is to realize that Obama is VERY thin-skinned, it doesn’t take a lot to make him angry, he seems to have an exaggerated sense of his own importance and dignity and doesn’t “do unto others as he would have done to him”. All you have to do is to point out Obama’s failures (from his days at ACORN) as well as his short-sightedness (The surge is working, and no, alienating the Clinton ladies was NOT a good idea) and lack of ethics (Two words, Nevada caucus). There’s a ton of good stuff out there, the Clintonites have been busy ;-)

    Well the move to merge the DNC with his campaign was eerily similar to what Hitler did to the German government.

    Now certainly Obama is a bit more normal of a person simply because he did marry and he did father children, Hitler married Eva Braun at the last minute. Now it is true that in the church, much is being made of fatherhood in the black community. To be married, a father, and reasonably stable is a much lauded ideal, Hitler stayed single for political purposes, he would have married Braun earlier otherwise, so who knows.

    We have a certain weakening of our constitutional rights by the Bush administration in response to the events of 911. Not the same as what was done to the German constitution by Heinrich Brüning but a weakening just the same that is expoitable.

    We have the doctrine of hate in the form of Black Liberation theology resulting in African-American adherants feeling as though they have been wronged and exploited and that their present situation is entirely the fault of white people. Compare that to the way in which German people felt as though they had been wronged and exploited and that their situation was entirely the fault of the Jewish people.

    Obama has left a mess on his way up the ladder, his housing initiatives were an unmitigated disaster according to the Boston Globe. Rather than paying any attention to cleaning up his messes though, he just comes up with bigger and more outlandish plans, ever more detached from fiscal reality. At least Hitler made the trains run on time, some of what he accomplished was nothing short of a miracle, but at such an unimaginably unacceptable price. Obama has some organizational skills, but I don’t think that will translate into any public good. I think the only real result will be a short term gain by his doners taking advantage of cracks in his health care plan and public school initiatives before the wheels come off the wagon, as it were.

    I don’t know if Obama is as egotistical as Hitler, that is the question. Now he has certainly lied about a bunch of biographical stuff to achieve the “correct” image. He lied about his parents meeting at Selma, he lied about his grandfather enlisting the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, he lied about his uncle helping to liberate Auschwitz. All of these lies turned details of family members lives into symbols crafted by Obama. What do we make of this?

    I do think the parallels are too similar to ignore, certainly the speeches are a dead giveaway. I really hope he loses and loses big! The more I see, the worse it gets.
