Bush/Clinton Dynasty… An oldie but a goodie!

May 9th, 2008 . by TexasFred

I posted this a while back but ya know, I think it’s worth repeating, and even though it appears that the Clinton part of this equation may be about to end, remember this, it ain’t over until it’s over, and the ‘fat lady’ hasn’t sung yet…

Let’s do a comprehensive run down and possibility prediction, shall we??

G.H.W. Bush was Ronald Reagan’s VP for 8 years and then POTUS for 4 years, giving him a total of 12 years in the White House, not as POTUS the entire time but there none the less, before he lost to Bill Clinton who infested the White House for a total of 8 years and was succeeded by G.W. Bush who has stumbled and stuttered his way through nearly 2 full terms and barring some tragic event will be a sitting POTUS for 8 years, that’s a total of 28 years so far where there’s been either a Bush or a Clinton in the White House in one capacity or another, stay with me now because here’s where it gets a bit more complicated…

If Hillary should win in ‘08, God forbid, but IF she did, and only served 1 term, that gives us a total of 32 years with either a Clinton or a Bush in the White House, and suppose she were to somehow be re-elected in 2012, and went on to serve another 4 years as POTUS, now we’re looking at 36 years with a Clinton or a Bush in the White House…

Fast forward a bit and use your imagination now, it’s 2016 and Jeb Bush is approaching ‘elder statesman’ status and he convinces enough people that HE needs a shot at the Oval Office and he gets himself elected, even if just for 1 term we’re looking at a total of 40 years of a Bush or a Clinton in the White House, and just suppose ol’ Jeb gets himself re-elected and serves another 4 years, OK, now we’re up to a total of 44 years that this nation has had either a Clinton or a Bush in the White House, but hold onto your hat’s, I’m not done yet, we’re up to the year 2020 now…

Chelsea Victoria Clinton (born February 27, 1980) will be 40 years old by that time, do you see the possibilities here??

We could conceivably have at least 52 years of uninterrupted Clinton/Bush in the White House, tell me there’s not some sort of ‘grand scheme’ for a Globalist America and a political domination campaign at work here…

McCain woos Hispanics and launches Spanish web site

May 6th, 2008 . by TexasFred

PHOENIX (Reuters) - John McCain reached out to Hispanic voters on Monday as he sought to win over a constituency that has moved away from his Republican Party but could prove key in swing states in a close U.S. presidential election in November.

The Arizona senator’s campaign launched a Spanish language Web site to mark the Mexican Cinco de Mayo festival and McCain told reporters that “everything about our Hispanic voters is tailor-made to the Republican message.”

“I am confident that I will do very well,” he said. “I know their patriotism, I know the respect for the family, the advocacy for pro-life, I know the small business aspect of our Hispanic voters.”
Hispanic support for the Republican Party has ebbed in recent months, following a bruising battle over illegal immigration.

Republican lawmakers sank a comprehensive immigration bill last June that would have created a path to citizenship for many of the 12 million mostly Hispanic illegal immigrants living in the shadows in the United States.

McCain’s support for a broad immigration overhaul that would also have put some illegal workers on a path toward U.S. citizenship angered many conservatives in his party. He later said Congress should focus on border security first.

McCain woos Hispanics and launches Spanish web site

Another little tidbit from the original story:

A report by the Pew Hispanic Center in December found that 57 percent of Hispanic registered voters called themselves Democrats, while just 23 percent considered themselves Republican.

That’s pretty funny actually, McCain calls himself a Republican and a conservative while nearly ALL true Conservatives call McCain a RINO, he’s a lot closer to the Dems than he is to the few REAL Republicans that are still out there, and he’s nowhere near being what I consider a Conservative, his near Dem status should make his slightly attractive to a few Dem voters, they’ll fall for McCain’s pandering lies as quickly as the McCainiacs did…

And to a certain McCainiac in Massachusetts: before you start blasting me in email again, read this very closely because the next time you come at me and accuse me of being a Clinton supporter I will consider your hostile accusations a declaration of war and will respond accordingly…

I do NOT support Hillary you illiterate wretch, if you were in possession of ANY reading comprehension at all, that would be glaringly apparent, I think she is evil incarnate, but I also feel that Obama is even worse, and McCain isn’t much better, he just happens to claim the names Republican and conservative, of which he is, in truth, neither…

I am a hard core supporter of None of the Above, but get this through your thick McCainiac skull, I am NOT sitting this election out, I will be voting, but here’s exactly how it’s going to play out for me…

If November comes down to a vote between McCain and Clinton, I will vote my conscience and vote for None of the Above, and I will write in MY choice, a Tancredo/Hunter ticket, and the chips can fall where they may simply because there is NO discernable difference between McCain and Clinton other than one is a Dem and the other is Dem Lite…

If it comes down to a choice between a real gun grabbing RINO, McCain, and that lying piece of shit, closet racist, stealth muzzie, asshole son of a bitch, Obama, I WILL hold my nose and vote for McCain, a vote that will be registered as done under protest, I absolutely abhor the idea of voting for the lesser of 2 evils, all you get is evil, and it appears that evil is all that’s being offered in this election cycle…

I do hope that this clears up exactly where I stand on the concept of None of the Above, I know that this is something that goes over a lot of heads, but most of those heads are pretty dense, and if you think that I am talking about YOU, then you just might be right…

McCain slated for N.R.A. meeting

May 6th, 2008 . by TexasFred
LOUISVILLE (AP) — The National Rifle Association says Republican presidential candidate John McCain is scheduled to give a speech during a forum at the N.R.A.’s annual meeting next week in Louisville.

N.R.A. spokesman Andrew Arulanandam says the U.S. senator and presumptive GOP presidential nominee will take part in the group’s Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum on May 16, the first day of the three-day meeting. The meeting will be followed a few days later by Kentucky’s primary election.

Also scheduled to speak at the forum are former GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, former White House political director Karl Rove, Republican U.S. Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear.

Arulanandam says Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were not invited to this N.R.A. event.

McCain slated for N.R.A. meeting

That last line had me laughing out loud, for 1 thing, I believe Barack Obama would be very afraid to show up at a place that was filled with gun lovers and gun owners, although most are sane and normal people there is always that 0.001% that’s just plain ape-shit crazy and would hide a gun in a body cavity if they thought they would get even a remote opportunity at taking a shot at the Jr. Senator from the great state of Illinois…

Last week, Sen. Barack Obama claimed that many Midwestern voters “cling” to guns and religion to placate themselves for their loss of jobs and economic prosperity. SOURCE

Anyone can understand the NRA not wanting Obama there after the bum made such ridiculous statements but the didn’t invite Hillary?? She’s into guns ya know, she said so…

“You know, some people now continue to teach their children and their grandchildren. It’s part of culture. It’s part of a way of life. People enjoy hunting and shooting because it’s an important part of who they are. Not because they are bitter. … As I told you, my dad taught me how to shoot behind our cottage. I have gone hunting. I am not a hunter. But I have gone hunting.”  SOURCE 

Yeah, well, I’m not a pilot but I’ve been up in a lot of airplanes, does that instill a sense of confidence in you?? And if there is anyone out there that truly believes Hillary and her impassioned pandering of gun owners, I have some bridge properties you may be interested in owning…

Now, on to Sen. John McCain and guns, McCain, the apparent darling of the Republican party and the leader of a bunch of ankle biting little lapdogs affectionately called McCainiacs… 

Sen. McCain is basically a pandering politico and will say and/or do anything it takes to get elected to the presidency, including, but not limited to pandering to gun owners in an attempt to gain their support and the support of the Conservative voting base, a base that he all but turned his back on in 2000…

John McCain tried running for president in 2000 as an anti-gunner. This year it appears he is seeking to “come home” to the pro-gun community, but the wounds are deep and memories long. John McCain - GOA 2008

As if there wasn’t already plenty of evidence that Senator John McCain is the wrong choice for pro-gun Republicans in the Presidential primary, the Columbus Dispatch has added one more item to the list: Buckeye Firearms Association

Nowhere is McCain’s chicanery and duplicity more jeopardous than in the area of the right to keep and bear arms. On issues relating to the Second Amendment, John McCain is a disaster! For example, the highly respected Gun Owners of America (GOA) rates McCain with a grade of F-. McCain’s failing grade is well deserved. John McCain Is A Liberal Gun Grabber

I could go on and on but you get the idea, McCain is sucking up to the NRA and will turn his back on the gun owners of America as soon as he’s sworn in and any way this thing goes, gun owners will become the target…

McCain may be a bit better president than Hillary and Hillary would be infinitely better than Obama but let’s face the facts, if these 3 are the best that the parties have to offer and if we are so complacent that we’re willing to accept these candidates, then come November we’re going to get exactly what we deserve…

How well did Senator Clinton handle the tragedy?

February 23rd, 2008 . by TexasFred

Senator Clinton drew an enthusiastic crowd in Dallas this morning but the tone of her day quickly changed.

The Clinton campaign had to make several last minute changes to adjust to the news.

The theme of Senator Clinton’s campaign is: Ready to lead on day one.

Today, she reacted to events beyond her control and made a series of split decisions.

She started with an impromptu news conference after her rally in Oak Cliff.

“I just want to express my deepest condolences to the family and the Dallas police department and this tragic tragic loss,” she said.

From Dallas, Clinton’s motorcade drove to Fort Worth, as scheduled.

But, by the time she took the stage, she’d decided to cancel the rally.

“Because of this tragedy, I know you understand, we can’t have a rally. It would not be appropriate,” she told fans.

How well did Senator Clinton handle the tragedy?

Yesterday I saw something happen that gave me great pause concerning the way I look at Sen. Hillary Clinton…

Sen. Clinton exhibited more class than I have seen in a long time, which is a lot more than I can say for some of her supporters, her reaction to the death of Sr. Cpl. Victor Lozada was totally compassionate, and I don’t believe it was staged, it was too emotional to be staged, nor do I believe it was in any way a political ploy, Sen. Clinton was obviously quite moved by Lozado’s death and her reactions were, in my opinion, genuine and commendable…

Read the full story and I think you’ll agree, she may not be the best choice for POTUS, she’s surely not MY choice, I haven’t become a Clinton supporter over this one incident, but she truly is a compassionate and caring person, and yesterday, it showed…
