Oxymoron For The Ages

The banner for the blog The American Prospect gave me one of the best laughs I have had in a long time. (It's all in the fine print.)

McCain...Hero Or Survivor?

While one must admire Senator John McCain (R-AZ) for his service to the United States, I don't believe that being captured and spending time as a P.O.W. makes him a hero. It does indeed make him a survivor, but that does not make him a heroic figure. It is certainly not much of a recommendation when it is his only qualification for President.

The fact remains that McKennedy McCain is not a conservative. You can count on one finger the areas where he has been a supporter of any conservative values. He has usually just given the finger to conservatives to show his disdain for conservative values.

I will give you that McCain has supported the war against terrorism, but only minimally. Remember he still would let al Qaeda blow us to kingdom come if they were captured and had any information about terrorists attacks in the works. He wouldn't lay a glove on them. I want someone with the stomach for the fight and McCain is not that man.

Democrats Lose Best Candidate

Bill Richardson has dropped out of the race for President of the United States. This is a very sad turn of events because he was the most qualified candidate running for office in either party.

After majoring in French and political science at Tufts University, Richardson earned a master's degree in international affairs from Tufts' Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 1971. From there he went on to serve for over 14 years in the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat from New Mexico. He then served as the Secretary of Energy and Ambassador to the United Nations in the Clinton administration and is currently the Governor of New Mexico.

That is a resume unrivaled by any of the candidates. Hillary’s experience came to her through osmosis in the rarefied air of the First Lady’s offices in the White House and Barack Hussein Obama is an empty suit, having accomplished virtually nothing during his days as an Illinois legislator and his two years as a U.S. senator. Obama's two years in the U.S. Senate were really more like one year since he normally worked about three days a week in that post.

Unfortunately, the Democrats are blinded by their burning desire to install a woman or an African-American in the White House and gave little support to the one man in either party who was truly qualified to be President.

John McCain - Too Cute By Half

I have noticed that whenever the subject of immigration comes up, the distinguished senator from Arizona, John McCain, says that we must secure the border first. Unfortunately, he then moves on to the next subject and no one wants to ask him - What would you do with all the illegals after we secure the border?

I believe that McCain still believes that they should all be given amnesty and citizenship. Break the law and the benevolent President McCain would reward the law breakers by giving them all a pass.

If you think America should be the dumping ground every uneducated, unskilled Mexican that can climb, tunnel or sneak into the United States, vote for McCain, but I won't. I can mow my own lawn.

McCain - Heartless

I had to laugh when I was the latest ad John McCain ran attacking Mitt Romney. He showed radical Muslims burning and blowing stuff up in an effort to say that Romney wouldn't know how to deal with the situation. Unfortunately, McCain wouldn't deal with the situation.

If tough guy McCain were President he has indicated over, and over and over that, should the United States capture even one of the Jihadists, he wouldn't hurt a hair on the scum bag's head in an effort to gain information that might stop further attacks no matter how many Americans, Brits, Aussies, or Spaniards might be in harms way. John McCain would let 9/11 happen again, and again, and again before he would lay a glove on an a prisoner of war.

John McCain would let them blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago. John McCain would let them blow up the Empire State Building. John McCain would let them fly a plane into a stadium during the Super Bowl. John McCain would let them behead you, your wife, your children and your dog. John McCain would let us all die rather than waterboard even one enemy combatant.

Give me anybody but John McCain. He just doesn't have the heart.
