Burnout Happens!

February 26th, 2008 . by TexasFred
What the hell, there’s really nothing outstanding to blog about, Bush is still in the White House, we’re still wasting BILLIONS of U.S. tax dollars in Iraq, Darfur is still a debacle, the U.N. is still useless, Hillary and Obama are still going at each other, McCain is still a shit for brains and I am tired of blogging about it, I am taking the day off, screw it, every blogger in the nation is ranting and raving about the same things, over and over and over and quite frankly, I refuse to sound like some shrill bitch that’s got a lot of Hot Air and little else…

Maybe tomorrow I’ll feel more like getting back into the fray but if not, to hell with it, LIFE, real LIFE, does go on and right now it’s calling loudly…

McCain Says He Could Lose Over War Issue

February 25th, 2008 . by TexasFred

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (AP) – John McCain said Monday that to win the White House he must convince a war-weary country that U.S. policy in Iraq is succeeding. If he can’t, “then I lose. I lose,” the Republican said. He quickly backed off that remark.

“Let me not put it that stark,” the likely GOP nominee told reporters on his campaign bus. “Let me just put it this way: Americans will judge my candidacy first and foremost on how they believe I can lead the county both from our economy and for national security. Obviously, Iraq will play a role in their judgment of my ability to handle national security.”

“If I may, I’d like to retract ‘I’ll lose.’ But I don’t think there’s any doubt that how they judge Iraq will have a direct relation to their judgment of me, my support of the surge,” McCain added. “Clearly, I am tied to it to a large degree.”

The five-year-old Iraq conflict already is emerging as a fault line in the general election, with the Arizona senator calling for the U.S. military to continue its mission while his Democratic opponents urge speedy withdrawal.

McCain Says He Could Lose Over War Issue

Convince a ‘war weary’ America that U.S. policy in Iraq is succeeding?? Gonna be a tough sale on that one Mr. McCain…

The American people ARE ‘war weary’ Mr. McCain, and if the reasons WHY aren’t obvious to you, then you have no more business being POTUS than Clinton or Obama do…

We have been involved in the fighting in Iraq for a longer period of time than we were directly involved in all of WWII, and yes, I DO realize that we’ve had troops in Korea for 50 some odd years, but since the peace agreement in Korea was signed, and the nation divided, our troops have been on a peacekeeping mission, not a combat mission, and that, a combat mission, is exactly what we are still engaged in with Iraq, regardless of how many ‘Mission Accomplished’ banners fly over the decks of carriers…

We spent years in Vietnam and when we left Vietnam, or, should I say, were pulled out of Vietnam by American politicians, the communists did take over, after all the lost lives, over 54,000 American troops dead and only God knows how many South Vietnamese and North Vietnamese killed, after all the time and money that was wasted, we got our asses kicked out of Vietnam and the communist regime of North Vietnam took over, and look at the complexion of the Vietnam debacle today, Vietnam is one of our stronger trading partners…

As a Vietnam veteran, you should know this, you should know what a protracted engagement like Vietnam does to our nation, and that is exactly what Iraq is, Vietnam without the greenery, and other than oil, very little to make them any kind of strong trading partner…

You Mr. McCain, are a lot closer to the Democrats than you are to REAL Republicans and Conservatives, your stance on immigration and amnesty more than prove that accusation, and your views of Iraq and the idea that we may keep troops there for many years into the future are all the reasons I need to tell you to go to hell, right along with Clinton and Obama, your Senatorial buddies…

I simply can’t believe that the American people have allowed themselves to be placed in this position once again, a vote for the lesser of 2 evils is STILL a vote for evil, and while McCain may be a better choice than Clinton or Obama, let me ask you this, what’s worse, to burn to death or drown??

Either way, you’re dead…

Barack Hussein Obama, WRONG for America…

February 25th, 2008 . by TexasFred

Look at Obama, he won’t put his hand over his heart during the playing of the National Anthem or during a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance…

When he is making public appearances, when he is doing political advertisements or when he is involved in a debate, he WILL NOT wear an American flag pin on his lapel…

Obama claims he loves America, Obama claims he is the one that can and will bring ‘change’ to America but he can’t tell you what that ‘change’ will be, he claims to be ready to lead from Day 1 but he’s not even done with a 1st term in the Senate, what prepares him to lead anything??

This individual is a disgrace to America, the flag and the people of the United States of America and anyone that can support this ‘empty suit’ is as hollow as he is, to the American Dems, ask yourselves, is that the guy you really want in the White House?? A guy that won’t even make a half-hearted attempt at patriotism??

Barack Hussein Obama, WRONG for America…
