Will Travis Childers back Obama?

June 11, 2008

Since Gene Taylor has stated that he won’t be backing Obama, will Travis Childers?

If our Taylor and Childers are so conservative that they refuse to back their own party’s Presidential nominee then why are they Democrats anyway?

Anyway, we like Gene Taylor though.

We have been getting a few reports about how Childers is faring up on the hill, post coming next week if we can confirm the story.

Just throwing that out there…

Obama’s Preacher is a serious liability for his campaign

March 17, 2008

Well we know that Michelle Obama hates America, now we know for sure that Barack Obama’s pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright hates America.  There is too much of a pattern here and we know too little about Obama to take a chance on this guy.

 Scary Stuff!

Michelle Obama on how much she hates to be an American

February 29, 2008

I Hope you crawl back under the rock that you came from.

I was unaware that she had said it twice and the Milwaukee quote was worse but the media just plays the second clip because they love love love the empty suit Obama.

In Election 2008 Don’t forget the Angry White Man

February 22, 2008

In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man

Aspen Times News
by Gary Hubbell, February 9, 2008

There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates — a woman and an African-American — while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.

Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians.

There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone — just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard.

The victimhood syndrome buzzwords — “disenfranchised,”

“marginalized” and “voiceless” — don’t resonate with him. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him.

He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding.

He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him.

The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American.

He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch.

Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir”

and “No, ma’am.”

He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race.

He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off.

When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is.

It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves.

There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush.

He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.

A crush on Obama???

Youtube has changed politics forever.  Personally I think Obama is a joke but that does not make this video any less funny.

Obama Rivals Clinton In Fundraising

April 4, 2007

Word is that Barack Hussein Obama will report $25 Million raised for the first quarter 2007, nearly equaling Hillary Clinton’s 26 Million dollar haul.  Fund-raising is an important indicator of support.  A virtual tie in fund-raising all but evaporates Clinton’s early front-runner status although a $10 million dollar transfer from her Senate campaign puts her total first quarter at $36 million.  

It is reported that Obama will file with donations from as many as 100,000 donors.

On the Republican side: Among the Republican candidates, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was the top money-raiser with $23 million, Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani raised $15 million for the quarter, while Arizona Sen. John McCain posted $12.5 million. Giuliani leads the GOP field in national popularity polls, followed by McCain -AP

Donors in Federal Elections are limited by law to contributions of $2,300 for the primary election, but Clinton, Obama and some other candidates also have been raising money for the general election. That allows them to take another $2,300 from each donor, but the money has to be returned if they don’t win the nomination.

Other Highlights:

Edwards: $14 million

Richardson: $6 million

Dodd: $4 million

Brownback: $1.3 million

Biden: $1-2 million

Huckabee: $500,000

McCain nearly left the GOP in 2001

March 29, 2007

Although it appears to be speculation, Rumors are swirling that John McCain nearly abandoned the GOP in 2001 in favor of becoming an Independent. 

“In interviews with The Hill this month, former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) and ex-Rep. Tom Downey (D-N.Y.) said there were nearly two months of talks with the maverick lawmaker following an approach by John Weaver, McCain’s chief political strategist.Democrats had contacted Jeffords and then-Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-R.I.) in the early months of 2001 about switching parties, but in McCain’s case, they said, it was McCain’s top strategist who came to them.At the end of their March 31, 2001 lunch at a Chinese restaurant in Bethesda, Md., Downey said Weaver asked why Democrats hadn’t asked McCain to switch parties.”From The Hill
