The simple fact is that Senator Obama cannot, based on opinions expressed by HIM in his own book, just simply distance himself from Jeremiah Wright because in many, many ways the two men really do think alike.
Barack Hussein Obama is an atrocious human being and completely unfit for the office of the President of the United States of America. And his opponent for the nomination is no more qualified than is Obama.
Which leaves us with John McCain who at least would protect the territorial United States reasonably well.
Sad, isn't it, that our options are so pitiful?Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 30.04.2008 @ 11:15
To me, nobody can state the case better than does the incredible Dr. K.! The man is a true national treasure.Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 25.04.2008 @ 14:53
Think about the obvious - the more they batter each other, the less effort McCain will have to make to keep them where they belong - at the bottom of the tallies. And with all the money Hillary and Obama are spending - how much is going to be reasonably available to spend on the general election? They are busy as little bees slitting the Democratic Party's throat and neither of them seems to give a rat's eardrum!Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 24.04.2008 @ 11:46
It is a fact that the Emperor is truly naked! And Barack Obama is the emptiest suit in a party full of uninhabited suits!
Bill Clinton was the last of the pre-Internet candidates. It's a different world out there. Gaffes and misspeaking did spread quite so thoroughly as they do now and baseless calumnies (like the one being talked up about McCain at this moment) can be addressed and defused much more quickly. The problem both Obama and Hillary have is that their lies, evasions and exaggerations - not to mention their poor choices of friends and/or mentors - are coming back to bite them big time and seriously. And they so deserve it!
John McCain is not my dream candidate by any stretch of the imagination. BUT I am confident that he will protect and defend the United States of America and that is what matters in this post 9/11 world. While the Dems prefer to forget it ever happened, the grownups in the room both know that it did and intend it never happen again if we can help it.Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 23.04.2008 @ 14:07
Then too, "I survived Catholic school" from those of us who actually did so, and in some ways that may be the case. However, my non-Catholic father was the one who insisted that I be educated in Catholic schools, not because he had agreed to do so when he married my mother but because he felt that it was the most effective mode of education - particularly for rebellious little old me. As in so many other areas, my father was absolutely correct. I was educated by the nuns of the Holy Humility of Mary in high school and with only 2 exceptions, was taught entirely by nuns who possessed PhDs in their specific disciplines. And speaking of discipline, mental discipline was instilled in us on an hourly basis, and that has served me well all my (long) life. At age 65, I still benefit from the education I received in Cleveland, Ohio at Lourdes Academy all those many years ago.
As I have stated quite clearly on my own site, I have little patience with non-Catholics who feel compelled to tell us how to run our church and how to change our doctrines. My response is "stick it in your ear" and that response is pretty much always going to be the same.
Dennis Miller said it best last week (and I'm paraphrasing) when he said that it was okay to attack Catholics precisely because Catholics wouldn't take to the streets in riot mode or kill those who had "insulted" them. When someone like Bill Maher runs his ignorant mouth, I just "offer it up" as I was taught to do by the good nuns!Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 21.04.2008 @ 13:22
I must say that the offender's dental hygiene needs to be taken up a notch.
I am also going to hazard the opinion (to which I am constitutionally entitled) that we are entirely too hypersensitive about words.
Like most, I believe the "n" word - and even the reference to "boy" ought to disappear from our speech but,to make the kind of unwarranted fuss that has been made is also the outer limits of stupidity. It may not be speech that we like. But the bottom line is, I will defend that doofus' right to be just that - a doofus!Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 15.04.2008 @ 16:15
Don't liberals regard third-work people as gormless children? Do they not regard ANYONE who dares vote Republican as some sort of clueless hick? Of course they do. And at the same time, they regard those who do vote for them as rubes also!
While I grew up believing that the biggest difference between the two parties was that the Dems' mantra was: We'll do FOR you and that the Republican mantra was: we'll teach you to do for YOURSELF. The only change is that now the Republicans are starting to sound just like the Dems I encountered as I was growing up in Cleveland (then and now a Dem stronghold) in the 40s and 50s. The voters were always promised that the factory jobs would ALWAYS be there and there was no curiosity or willingness to look beyond the narrow confines of their own lives - both a good and bad thing in many cases. Their voters always believed them. I didn't, but then we were that rarest of birds - an entirely conservative Republican family who believed in doing for ourselves.
The "dependency" mindset is not just limited to third-generation welfare families, you know. It's endemic and exists on both sides of the political spectrum and in all ethnic and religious groups, although I'll admit to a lesser extent in the Republican Party overall. The big sin (to me anyway) of the Republican Party is that our politicians have lost their cojones altogether and act grateful when Dems spit on them! And that to me is just the most appalling behavior!Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 14.04.2008 @ 09:12
Well at least they are consistent: nobody has EVER accused the left of having good manners, have they? My point exactly.
Here's another interesting contradiction: in 1996 when unemployment was around 5.4% there were kudos aplenty being showered on WJC! Now GWB is in office, unemployment is around 5.1% and we're in a recession? What a bunch of gormless losers they (the "useful idiot" mainstream media) must think we are!
Unfortunately - it's true of far too many Americans.Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 11.04.2008 @ 12:52
Michael - I absolutely respect Senator John McCain. Barack Hussein Obama? He's the village idiot and has earned no respect from me. Notice what I said EARNED no respect.
John McCain wasn't my first, or even second, choice for the Republican nomination. However, when measuring him against either of his two opponents, he fares very well. They are both pinheads, both cowards, both dangerous to this country's future and welfare.Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 10.04.2008 @ 09:32
It's time to finally say it, loud and clear, Barack Hussein Obama is a dangerous and demented fool with the IQ of a houseplant!Comment Posted By Gayle Miller On 9.04.2008 @ 13:33
