Our days of numbered

Fyt35's picture

I remember when the presidential elections gave you a sense of pride; how my parents and grandparents took this very seriously based on experience, real issues, and what was good for our great nation.

Unfortunately, America is in the brink of electing the most radical leftist candidate in the history of this country, a man with no experience balancing budgets, with no political experience other than being a rookie senator. With enough baggage in the closet that even some democrats are cringing.

Connection to terrorist William Ayers that are now being talked about after the liberal media had decided to hide the subject, because liberals have always done better by sticking their heads in the sand and prefer not to address these type of issues.
Race baiting rev Wright, you can’t tell me you attend a church for 25 years and have no idea your rev is a racist pig.
Obvious connections with dubious business dealings in his home state of Chicago that have been swept under the carpet by the liberals and the mainstream media. Have you ever heard of Penny Pritzker, Obama’s finance director? A big player in the sub prime mess along with two former Fannie Mae CEO’s that are part of “The Messiah’s” campaign staff. Do some research, you’ll be surprised.

But many continue to fall under the spell of teleprompter speeches; Obama has yet to offer a sound plan to fix the economic mess, and I wonder why. Could it be due to his inexperience? Could it be that just has no clue? Will his feel good speeches and catch slogans help our Nation get out of this hole?

How sad that what is important now according to the liberal bloggers on this site is the demeaning of Sarah Palin and John McCain; not the real issues. I for one am tired of reading the same garbage everyday, the liberals have turned this into the National Enquirer election; The American Idol election where we will elect a president based on what he sounds like instead of what he stands for. May God help us all!

Fyt35, you would do good if you stop deceiving yourself and open your eyes to the new reality of our nation. WE ARE BROKE and this is the consequence of the guys you seem to be so fond of.
I prefer a thousand times a guy like Obama, even with his limited experience, to the well-known experienced crooks who have taken all of of us into this mess.

The politics of fear that you intend to bring up do not work anymore. Only non-thinking Republicans and extreme right pundits remain in their stupidity. For the rest of us, independents, undecided and even for non-prejudiced Republicans, things are crystal-clear now. More so after the debate of tonight. Just look at the numbers.

So, I invite you to think for a moment and be rational. I know you will see it my way.

OOOHHH WEEEE! This is too funny, Fyt35. You sound more desperate than a broke college student at last call.

"I remember when the presidential elections gave you a sense of pride; how my parents and grandparents took this very seriously based on experience, real issues, and what was good for our great nation."

Really, Fyt35? REAL ISSUES (hence the LOL)? Sense of pride (hence ROTF)?

Real issues like guys that the candidates have met?

Did your parents have a "sense of pride" that forced them to call the other candidate names (Marxists and Communists and Socialists Oh MY!)

Yes. Bring back the pride-filled, issue-centered politics that Fyt35 has EXEMPLIFIED.

And I thought Richard Prior was funny!

We're fighting two wars, unemployment is skyrocketing, the financial system is melting down, we're in a recession, the Taliban is regrouping in Afghanistan and bin Laden hasn't been captured and McCain and Palin are trying to change the subject to the trivia of Obama's acquaintances and you're claiming that the liberals are trying to avoid the issues???

Submitted by jokerman on Tue, 10/07/2008 - 10:58am.

is certainly a good thing. This guy showed up on the scene from out of nowhere, and the masses began fainting. A healthy inquisition is called for, but the media hasn't helped much. People like Biden, Clinton, Dodd, et al, were known quantities when they ran. But Obama just appeared. We can learn much about this man by checking his associations, can we not? "Birds of a feather", etc, and "you are known by the company you keep" are time-honored adages with much truth in them.

They get on here and use their hate-filled rhetoric and spin and COMPLETELY ignore the truth about Obama. They have had their "blinders" on and absolutely refuse to see what a total disaster he will be to this country! They think we're in a financial "crisis" now? After four years of his socialist policies, we will have no hope. He will weaken our economy and our military to the point of no return. Homeland Security will be crippled. Our children will grow up in a country that our parents and grandparents would not recognize. And all that the blind libs, like Diva and Meanstream, want do is make ugly jokes on here. They deserve what is going to happen to them and more. Too bad their kids will suffer along with our own.

"Diva and Meanstream, want do is make ugly jokes on here."

fyi, John McCain turned the remaining weeks of this election into a joke by choosing a running mate who is a caricature, so what else would you expect from some of us SERIOUS voters? We've seized this opportunity, this gift we have been given, to show what a loser McCain is by NOT choosing a VP that he really wanted, like Lieberman, Romney or even Guiliani. His poor judgment, and lack of testosterone to stand up to the neocons, is proof that he would not be a strong leader for our country. Rove and the neocons would continue to pull his strings, even if he were to be elected, and that is a horrifying thought to most of us.

Sarah Palin IS a joke and has proven to be a drag on McCain's campaign. Hopefully, never again will a serious contender for President, listen to Karl Rove's strategy for success. I believe the majority of the country will be rejoicing when Rove and the neocons are OUT of our White House, hopefully, for good.

McCain has already attempted two "Hail Mary" passes to revitalize his sinking campaign: First when he picked the spectacularly unqualified Sarah Palin, who after an initial flash in the pan, has proven absolutely not ready for prime time.

Secondly was his garish "suspending mah campaign" stunt last week, which made him look foolish.

I shudder to think what the next cunning stunt from McCain will be.

So, Brat: Fyt35 calls me a bonehead. You call mainstream "meanstream." And WE have anger issues? Okay. Take a deep breath and let's talk like grown up people.

I'm not making jokes of these subjects, brat. I'm pointing out how angry people saying the end of the world cometh if my candidate doesn't win aren't making much sense. Angry people telling US we are angry. I'm not. I'm quite happy.

To address one point you made, however:

"They think we're in a financial "crisis" now? "

Ummmm...... YES!

ps. You worry about your kids. We'll worry about ours.

You protest my use of the term MeanStream (which is true, she has a meanness about her) and at the same time call me "brat"? And it is true, you guys are ANGRY and have been since the 2000 election. The majority of what you type is ugly, sarcastic and degrading. It isn't every so often you get a little nasty; it's just about every blog you enter. And, of course, we're in a financial crisis. Just NOTHING like it will be if Obama gets in there. And, sorry, but I can't help but worry about your kids, just like my own. There is too much at stake in this election.

"There is too much at stake in this election.

Then why in the world would McCain choose such a weak running mate???!!!! Maybe a VP who actually had an economics background, or strength in foreign policy matters would have been a smarter choice! Good gosh, you're right armybrat, there is too much at stake in this election and McCain chose a moose skinning hockey mom to help run our country?

(btw - i don't care who scrambles my name into something else, fine with me...there are more important things to get worked up about - we're all a bit mean right now, watching our country go down the tubes, so whatever makes ya happy, be my guest)

NObama has made a lot of promises to our union. I think his plan to tax American companies into oblivion will hurt America, but it looks like my personal paycheck will go up.

No matter who wins I think our country will survive.

I will still vote against him, for the sake of the country. We can't afford anymore democratic subprime loans.

Have a good day.

I'm angry that the Bush administration has screwed up this country so badly, in so many ways, and it will take another Democrat to clean up this mess. I'm angry that we have lost over 4,000 soldiers in an unnecessary war and that Bin Laden is still enjoying kabobs somewhere in a cave, that we spend 10 billion a month in Iraq while their country enjoys billions in oil revenue. I'm angry that families are literally SHOOTING THEMSELVES AND THEIR LOVED ONES because they are in such financial turmoil and cannot see a way out of their situation. I'm angry that our country continues to lose thousands and thousands of jobs each month and our President decides he is going on vacation. I'm angry that for eight years, Bush has failed to seriously attempt to broker a peace deal in the Middle East, or tried to help our Veterans, or strengthened opportunities for our children to go to college, or implemented alternative energy programs or even basic, fundamental research on new sources.

I'm angry that there is still 40-45% of this country who would vote for another Republican administration when our nation is in a global economic crisis, who would repay the Republicans with four more years of leadership, after eight dismal years of ineptitude.

Ayers, Rezko, ACORN and Wright aren't just "guys (barack) has met". barack launched his political career in Ayers living room. Wright was barack's spiritual mentor for over 20 years, married he and michelle, baptized their children. Rezko helped him with the purchase of the Chicago mansion. barack recently gave over $800,000 to the corrupt organization ACORN.

These aren't just mere acquaintences - these men are allies. barack chose to affiliate and align himself with these wretched men.

What about the Palin's association with the Alaskan Independence Party?

See this: It's from a 'liberal' publication. Shall we denounce the Palin's for their association with persons who encouraged Alaskan's to leave the United States?

As you HNN readers probably know, Sarah Palin has supported the idea of allowing Alaskans to vote on whether to leave the U.S. McCain’s flacks insist that she never really wanted Alaska to leave, but even they–extraordinary liars–refuse to say whether she supported a vote on the matter. No one can ask her about it because she won’t dare talk to the press, but obviously she has supported such a vote, else the McCain people would have said otherwise.

More evidence: as you also probably know, in 2006, Palin told members of the Alaskan Independence Party (as in independence from the U.S.) that they were “inspirational,” adding “God bless you and keep up the good work.” Their chairman called her “our candidate.” For seven years her husband, her “closest advisor,” was a member of the AIP (see the LA Times of September 3, 2008)

Are the Palin's traitors? It seems that some could make an argument here that they at one time were less than patriotic. Look, the American people are sick of this negative campaigning - and it's not helping McCain. Check the recent polls.

By that I mean you have to recognize that one of these less than perfect candidates with entirely different backgrounds is going to run the country beginning next January. Anyone with basic knowledge of government knows the President has minimal power personally, but derives his power from the effectiveness of those he appoints.

So a better question for us all is who will President Obama appoint as Secretary of State? Defense? Treasury?, etc.

What about President McCain? Who will he appoint?

Answer those questions and you'll learn something about who will actually be in charge of our country.

I've learned to base choices on past experiences. My past experience with political appointees? FDR: Generals and statesmen that brought us out of the depression - and cooperative relationships with our allies. Truman: Made a decision that ended WWII and our segregated military forces. Eisenhower: Respected, retired general. Expert on war. Kennedy: Filled us was hope. Johnson: Inherited an unpopular war, inherited a saddened, shocked nation, lost the south to the Republican Party when he signed the Voting Rights Act. Nixon: Corruption uncovered. Ford: Honest Carter: Honest Reagan: Honest, inherited some remnants of corruption, became ill in office and his appointees were not representative of his vision for America, Iran/Contra. HW Bush: He and his family wanted to tear down everything that was started by FDR - and let business run our country. Clinton: Brought inclusiveness to government, left a surplus in our budget, a feeling of pride in the actions of America abroad. W. Bush: What can I say? Cheney is the most disrespected VP in history, Rumsfeld thought he was a general, Rice has been ineffective - but a nice showpiece, and we're broke!! I shudder to think whom McCain will appoint. You're right, the presidents actions are influenced by those appointed to top positions. Well I say enough is enough of Republican leadership. Rove and Cheney are still running McCain's show. CHANGE!!

He was a member of a socialist hate-filled racist church, with his spiritual mentor of 20 years, the infamous "G-D America" Jeremiah Wright baptizing his children.

He grew to power in the corrupt Chicago political machine.

His wife called America "just down-right" mean. They both hate the U.S. and want to destroy it.

His political career was launched in the living room of an avowed terrorist that blew up bombs and killed people at our capital.

His buddy the slum-lord Rezko helped him get his mansion, while Obama steered over 10 million dollars his of taxpayer money his way.

barack obama is the most liberal, corrupt, lying politician to run for President.

His tax policies will wreck our economy. He will sit down with the crazed leader of Iran but doesn't have the guts to face Sean Hannity.

I weep for America if this man is elected. He has fooled the masses into thinking that he is someone that he isn't.

You have proved with the above comments that you have no brains. Our economy is ALREADY wrecked by the tax policies of George W and Mc Cain. In case you ignore it (and you obviously do) we are in a financial hole of about FIFTEEN BILLION DOLLARS (between the Federal deficit, the bailouts and the tax breaks). Do the math to find out how much you and your descendants owe and start getting your money out of the bank to pay (if, hopefully, that bank is still open for business).

These type of fear politics do not work anymore. Most Americans are beyond these pathetic attempts to move the vote away from the best candidate to help us out this Republican mess. Independents, undecided voters, even thinking Republicans are starting to see the real options and the polls speak for it. Only extremist right wing pundits like Hannity and brainless dudes insist with sticking to their stupidity.

He looked very presidential tonight. The early voting is encouraging - and I think the outstanding organization of the Obama campaign will get the results needed. To tell you the truth - I don't envy any leader who has to try to get this country back on track - but I think the people are willing to work with Obama and make the necessary sacrifices to regain our global leadership and respect. We're winning the election - but there is a lot of hard work ahead to strengthen our economy.

He better come up with that tax cut, pronto when he's elected- and I want my free health care, free private school and tuition for my kids and all of the other bells and whistles he has promised.

Hot air Fred. Read material beyond Republican talking points. . . and think. There is no way this country will rebound without jobs, cheaper energy, affordable health care, sound educational programs for our children, retraining programs for our adults in the new jobs, and a sincere effort of all Americans to get off a 'credit' budget! If you don't hear sacrifice in this effort - you're blind, deaf and dumb!! Have a great day - and stay dry!

It seems your candidate, Obama, will be elected. Like Fred, I will be awaiting all the perks from his administration, but just in case I don't get them, I'm dusting off my "I told you so" sign.
Of couse, any criticsm of his performance as president will be called racist.
