Gingrich Can't Win
there's no way Gingrich is going to get elected even if he says all the right things. You see, he's shifty and sleazy and slickness is never forgiven in or accepted by republicans.Comment Posted By Sensible Mom On 9.03.2007 @ 12:38
Democrats Don't Support The Troops
They don't want to appear like they're willing to "abandon the troops in the field" so they've decided to work with anti-war (aka anti-military) groups to do just that by changing the rules for readiness. Not that they're concerned in the least ...Comment Posted By Sensible Mom On 14.02.2007 @ 18:22
Edwards Pulls A Warner
Candidates for office should read all the scriblings by bloggers before deciding to hire them. First Mark Warner hired a blogger and kooky astrologer, who was also under investigation by the SEC, and now Edwards is in hot water forComment Posted By Sensible Mom On 7.02.2007 @ 15:05
The Support The Troops... If They Lose
Nearly half of the democrats polled either want the US to lose in Iraq or don't know whether they want the US to succeed.
And yet they claim they support the troops.Comment Posted By Sensible Mom On 19.01.2007 @ 15:26
US Raids Iranian Consulate
Let's hope this isn't like the immigration raids that are a show of force for the cameras and mean nothing at all in the end when the trouble makers are released. The critical difference being that President Bush believes in our mission in IraqComment Posted By Sensible Mom On 11.01.2007 @ 14:28
Why does he seem like a star? Compare him to Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Al Gore and the reason is obvious. While he's just as liberal as they are, he doesn't condescend, sneer and, so far, operate by the politics of personal destruction. Compared to them he appears soft-spoken, flexible, telegenic and charismatic -- traits sorely missing in the other three.
Obama's obvious faults are his lack of experience and his far left voting habits. But while the media felt a lack of experience was Bush's major flaw, it won't be a concern for them in Obama's case because he believes in all the "right" things. The same can be said for his liberal views. Since the media, by and large, agree with him, there won't be long articles detailing their concerns with his agenda. In fact, Obama's liberal views won't become an issue until they're mentioned by a republican opponent, who will quickly be accused by the press of going negative.
Also important is the fact that his peers in the U.S. and Illinois Senate seem to genuinely like him. Can Hillary, Kerry and Gore say the same?
Some think he's a flash in the pan like Howard Dean, but he isn't. The media may have reported on Dean's ascendancy, albeit temporary, but they didn't understand it. Dean was clearly an oddball -- an oddball they wanted shoved out of the way. That isn't the case with Obama. This fevered lovefest will last unless Hillary has the FBI research his past. But then what could he have done that is worse then what she's already done?
He may or may not be an empty suit, but I'm convinced that that doesn't matter to the average American, who I believe votes for looks and personality first, gimmees second and long after that considers a candidate's depth.Comment Posted By Sensible Mom On 12.12.2006 @ 23:08
Geez Louise, must they select Trent Lott for a leadership position? That man screams sleaze with his slick hair and attitude. I just don't understand why anyone would elect him given his toxicity. There are politicians, as I've said before,Comment Posted By Sensible Mom On 15.11.2006 @ 22:32
No Apology Yet
Kerry's defense seems to be that we should all know better, the problem for him is that we do. It's his problem to fix and he's not interested in doing it - that's what you get for being an arrogant S.O.B., who thinks he can say whatever he wants ...Comment Posted By Sensible Mom On 1.11.2006 @ 09:57
Did Ray McGovern Write The WAPO's Editorial?
Is the WAPO delegating its editorial writing to member of VIPS, a group of former CIA employees who advocate the leaking of classified information for use against President Bush. This editorial reads just like Ray McGovern's interview on the NewsComment Posted By Sensible Mom On 26.04.2006 @ 11:50
