Who Best To Beat McCain?

With Mitt Romney announcing the end of his presidential bid, it looks like John McCain, the 71 year old senator from Arizona, will be the likely Republican presidential nominee. (Sure, Huckabee or Ron Paul could surge ahead, but it’s not probable that either will unseat McCain from his frontrunner status at this point in the race.)

More than 20 states still have primaries to hold, and for Democrats the focus must now shift to who can best beat McCain- Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Yes We Can

In the world of post 9/11 we have lived in the shadow of fear and the never ending threat of possible future terrorist attacks. As a parent of five daughters I am fearful of the future they will have to live in if this mindset continues. Our world has changed but the possibilitie s that they should have as American’s should never be less than what I have had.

America has never been about what we should be afraid of as much as it is has always been about what we can all do together. We as a people will not prosper if we are forever looking ahead of us with a sense of dread and danger with every step. Our world has never been perfect and yet the future is only bright if we look at the future as a new adventure with unknown surprises that together we can all overcome. We can not overcome our fears of the probabilitie s if the messengers of our government are burning the olive branches offered as kindling to heat the cold halls of our government. Our nation was not built on fear but on determinatio n to secure a brighter and better future for the next generation to come.

Politics in the Primaries

There is some confusion in many of the political blogs that we all read when it comes to the brutality that elections and primaries end up being all about. This is an election for President of the United States and no matter who you think you are as a candidate the questions need to be answered more so now during the primaries than when or if they sit behind the desk of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in our nations capitol. It is simply part of the process and I find myself guilty by a long shot of slamming some of the candidates I simply do not care for with one iota. Republican or Democrat makes no difference to me simply because I do not have an editor over my head telling me what I can or can not write. It’s called blogging. God I do love America! I could be shot for less in some countries.

Republican Retirement or Abandon Ship?

With the new addition of Davis from Virginia dropping out or resigning from Congress the list of Republican s fleeing public service is alarming. In some respects I’m glad that they are jumping ship but while they are jumping off, the seats they leave vacant may just be filled with Democrats. That leads me to the thought that this just might be the greatest political set up in history if you look at the economy.

Moments of Clarity and Clinton

While on a recent road trip Hillary Clinton is talking about the economy and now is the time to talk about the economy and how we all got into this horrible mess. The near future is not as positive as some people would like to think and a clear path through it is needed. With the latest reports coming in from all of the world stock exchanges, the “Maybe Recession” is a world wide concern when you are talking about the United States of America. World economics is the key to saving not only our own economy but the worlds.

Obama Really Wins Nevada

Popular vote aside, Obama won Nevada by one delegate to the Democrat convention. Popular vote aside, the message of Obama and hope lives on in Nevada. Hillary will get all the headlines but the truth of the matter is that the real decision of the voters is based on the delegates to the convention so Hillary Clinton’s win is not really a win. Somebody call Bill Clinton and tell him that he is about to get slapped upside the head again by the wife.

Kucinich Wants a Recount in N.H.

Please don’t think for a minute that I am a large conspiracy enthusiast but something really smelled funny about the Democrat primary Results in New Hampshire. I have many friends in the Granite State and they were all going for the “Babe Magnet” Kucinich. If you have ever seen his wife Elizabeth Kucinich, then you would understand our New England flannel wearing appreciation of any beautiful woman not wearing Long John’s under the flannels at this time of year.There is no way Kucinich only received less than two percent of the vote. I’m thinking that his wife alone received more votes than that!

N.H. Primary Democratic Re-Count Under Way

CONCORD, N.H. (WBZ) ― Secretary of State William Gardner says his office is ready for Wednesday’s re-count of New Hampshire’s Democratic presidential primary.

Democrat Dennis Kucinich has paid $27,000 to Gardner’s office to start the re-count. Election officials tell WBZ-TV that the recount could take up to a month.

Kucinich, who received less than 2 percent of the vote, says he is suspicious of the results, although he doesn’t expect a re-count to change his vote count much. Kucinich alluded to online reports alleging disparities around the state between hand-counted ballots, which tended to favor Sen. Barack Obama, and machine-coun ted ones that tended to favor Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. He also noted the difference between pre-election polls, which indicated Obama would win, and Clinton’s triumph by a 39 percent to 37 percent margin. - WBZ TV

Politics and Hillary

When it comes to politics and your name is on the ballot there is no female or male distinction on the actual ballot. Democrat, Republican, or Independent, those are the top three initials that will appear next to the candidates name. In politics your life, your history, and your entire past is luggage that you bring to the ballot whether you think it is fair or not. No topic in your public life is out of bounds. No political candidate for President should ever be immune from this process.

Two Contrasting Videos For Today

We already knew that there are three types of lies: Lies, damn lies, and then statistics. Penn and Teller actually catch a couple of fraud related items perpetrated by…well, you guessed it Fox News. Have a look:

Let’s contrast this with some of the genuine article - some one with some high quality speaking skills who does not have to rest on misleading numbers and hiring actors to demonstrate believabilit y. Barak Obama’s Iowa victory speech. He’s got some great speech writers to be sure, but the delivery is amazing as well. Enjoy:

Funny, in thinking about the differences between these two videos aside from the obvious, it may be that it points to the contrast between the ethical values that under gird the people that comprise the republican and democratic parties. Which one has the most ethically challenge value set? Perhaps it is time to dredge up the “culture of corruption” slogan one more time as it appears to apply to the GOP modus operandi.

Hillary Sob Fest in New Hampshire

I’m reminded of the scene from League of Their Own starring Tom Hanks, Maddona and Rosie O’Donnell where one of the woman players starts crying. Tom Hanks as the crusty has been coach in charge of the all woman baseball team goes on a rant. “There is no crying in baseball!” Same thought process goes for politics.

Baseball is just a game that the next day you could win the game. Politics is life and our nations actions and reactions to national crisis and world events. There is no time to go see your shrink to get in touch with your inner child and feelings as President of the United States of America. As it stands in the Bush world of happy never ending bungles and oops, only 28% of Americans think the King is doing a good job. Did I say King? I meant Emperor… No that isn’t right either? Might I suggest new and improved founding son? Founding fathers is just to antique and so yesterday for the new and improved Republican Party courtesy of W.
