    Politics of Fear

    Now that Obama has begun his foreign tour, the pictures that follow don't look much like previous Dem pictures. Obama in the helicopter doesn't suggest the mental image of Dukakis in the tank. The pictures are of a man ready to lead. And by the way, He can make a hoop at the perimeter.

    While the election cycle hasn't ramped up yet, I know the worst is yet to come for McCain. When the election kicks-off in the fall, Obama will eat McCains lunch in the debates, in the editorial interviews, and in the evening news cycle. McCain gave up his honor to become a Republican Party hack and the public knows it.

    Now the public knows that four more years of GW Bush can not happen. It is time for a thoughtful and US focused foreign policy. It is time for a national energy policy that will end the foreign oil addiction. It is time for a health policy that will insure that every American will get equal care. It is time to end the "tyranny of the rich" which has brought about the gradual destruction of the middle class. It is time to return the control of the federal government to the broad constituency of citizens rather than big corps and the ultra-rich.

    And, more than ever we will attack the enemies of our nation that murdered more than 3000 of our friends. We will pursue them wherever they are, and we will bring them or their carcasses to justice. We will put the world on notice, for real, that they are with us or against us in the war against Islamic terror groups. And we will stand along side the world's oppressed, making sure that the criminal element that rules them will not stand-even if Chevron has a "deal" with their oppressors.

    TIME FOR CHANGE!

      in your system and diet,
      better cut back.

    • Hope springs eternal from the misguided breast.

      Yours was a hackneyed regurgitation of a lib political speech.

      Founded on misconceptions and deceptions, verbiage with no substance, lots of implied promises that you and your candidates continue to use to get votes from the unthinking, uncaring, and uninformed.

      If libs were given the sole lead, we would become serial surrenderers. They would pursue no one who could not get them a vote or give them a dollar.

      You are an unhumorous joke.

      • Actually Fibs.. Your response was pretty much all verbiage and no substance.

        Fact of the matter is OBL who actually planned financed and attacked the US remains at large. You and yours have spent 600 billion to a trillion bucks tearing down and now rebuilding Iraq. In the meantime the dollar has nearly halved, the price of a barrel of oil quadrupled, and gasoline about tripled. Of course those least in need received the largest tax breaks many of whom were the same bankers, brokers and CEOs that seem to be lobbying for a public bailout.

        AGain where is the 'visionary' program for energy independence after nearly 8 year of Bush. Are you going to just yell "drill, drill, drill" like the rest of the Cons that seem to have forgotten that conservation and conservative have a common root.

        Methinks you and yours have so mishandled the War on Terror, the Iraq Misadventure, our oil addiction and our economy that even Rove and his empty rhetoric and posturing cannot save you from another well deserved political beating.

    • regard - The pictures are of a man ready to lead. And by the way, He can make a hoop at the perimeter.

      response - lead us to where? change is fine as long as its in the nations best interest. so he can play basketball what other qualifications does he have?

      regard - It is time for a national energy policy that will end the foreign oil addiction.

      response - obama's policy is for everyone to ride a bike. no drilling off shore or anwar, and no nuclear energy. perfect policy for the demise of our economic future.

      regard - It is time for a health policy that will insure that every American will get equal care.

      response - will obama, gore, and kennedy and their friends have the same equal care that everyone else gets? or better?

      regard - It is time to return the control of the federal government to the broad constituency of citizens.

      response - sure, like that will happen. will the special interest groups just disapear? you mean the money that democrats count on for their campaign funding will be rejected?

      regard - It is time to end the "tyranny of the rich" which has brought about the gradual destruction of the middle class.

      response - democrats have been in charge for over 2 years in the senate and house. what have they done so far to "end the tyranny of the rich"? they've embraced the rich and kiss their asses like they've always done.

      regard - And we will stand along side the world's oppressed, making sure that the criminal element that rules them will not stand.

      response - will obama close our southern border from illeagal aliens, drug smugglers, and criminal element that oppresses our own citizens? or will he welcome them with open arms?

      • As for response - lead us to where? change is fine as long as its in the nations best interest. so he can play basketball what other qualifications does he have?

        ANS- How about a brilliant mind, an excellent vocabulary, good people skills, and the ability to see the common sense mid ground on important matters?

        As for response - obama's policy is for everyone to ride a bike. no drilling off shore or anwar, and no nuclear energy. perfect policy for the demise of our economic future.

        ANS- This is just plain silly. Even the oil companies say that we cannot domestically drill our way out of this mess. Exxon has sat since 1977 on the largest identified oil patch in Alaska since 1977 "warehousing it". This idiot proposal that at one time even Bush opposed was dragged out of the dustbin as a desperation ploy. Do you actually believe this will help, or is this just something to throw back?

        As for response - will obama, gore, and kennedy and their friends have the same equal care that everyone else gets? or better?

        ANS- Probably the same basic care and if they want elective beyond that, then they will (and can) pay for it.

        As for response - sure, like that will happen. will the special interest groups just disapear? you mean the money that democrats count on for their campaign funding will be rejected?

        ANS- What you perhaps deliberately neglect to point out is that the preponderance of the funding that Obama has is from Joe Lunchbox. Many thousands of small donations. Sure, some special interest groups perhaps, but likely put to shame in percentile when compared to any Republican campaign.

        As for response - democrats have been in charge for over 2 years in the senate and house. what have they done so far to "end the tyranny of the rich"? they've embraced the rich and kiss their asses like they've always done.

        ANS- How could the Democrats get anything done with the stonewall Republicans that vote as a block, and GWB vetoing everything useful? Clean that bunch out, and some progress will be made.

        response - will obama close our southern border from illeagal aliens, drug smugglers, and criminal element that oppresses our own citizens? or will he welcome them with open arms?

        ANS - One thing is sure, he could not possibly be less effective than the Republican Congress has been. They had the Senate, the House, and the Presidency and did nothing, other than to virtually bankrupt the country. And your still cheerleading? What does it take to make you wake up?

      • Mrsip,

        Even those in your own state are seeing through the types of lies and distorted reality that you offer. Mississippi will go for Obama.

        Sit on the side and potshot with your stupid rhetoric if you wish.

      • word up , yo
        and he says things like
        don't be
        in the house "
