Why an Obama victory is what’s best for America!!!!

Republicans who are mostly conservative on the views of government are at their best when they detest government. This leads to calls for lower taxes, less government regulation, and the rebirth of movements such as the NRA, Pro-Life Counsel, etc etc. When Republicans win the White House these voices must stand up for the establishment and the anti-government lobby is lost. If John McCain wins we can expect another 4 years of Conservative silence and maybe continued economic crisis.

If Obama wins, however, every conservative and his pet fish will be galvanized against the government as the Dems will own the white house, and both houses of Congress. Conservatives will again become the whistle blowers, and force government to be accountable again. Conservatives will no longer be the problem but challenging the problem.

Liberals have failed in the watch dog role the last 8 years. GWBush has somehow been able to enact every policy he wanted, even with staunch public opinion against most of his propositions. Im not letting Bush43 off the hook but seriously what have the Dems prevented Bush from doing ? anyone ?

So for the first time in this election season I think an Obama victory might be a good thing. I think im a realist or I could just be coming to grips with the fact that McCain is down almost 8% points after the debate.

McCain’s still got my vote, but an Obama victory may secretly bring a smile to the face of Conservative Nation.

  1. Obama is turning out to be The Big Let-Down of ’08.
    Obama kept insinuating that He is The Second Coming but every time we’ve held our breaths waiting for him to change water into wine, we’ve been disappointed. Obama kept telling us to ‘tune in next week!’ and he never delivers, the miracle never comes. There is nothing there.
    Obama’s has a problem with clarity. I have systematically studied both his autobiographies and I still don’t know what kind of man I’m dealing with. When he was first showcased on TV, my interest was aroused. I used to find Obama enigmatic, but now he just comes off as vacuous, empty.
    Obama’s two books address the questions of “Journey of Discovery to Where?” and “Who Am I?” We can all relate to such pondering. But Obama does not give us an answer. If he has found the answer since publishing those two books two years ago then he hasn’t told us yet.
    McCain has been on a longer and harder personal journey. There can be nothing more extreme than surviving daily torture for five years. Can you imagine that? To be beaten day-in and day-out, starved, your hands and legs bound by chains? McCain already knows what he can take, and humbly knows where he breaks. Every man and woman has a breaking point. It is very human. McCain already knows his, even though he held out as long as he could.
    What trials or stories of human devastation has Obama endured? I can’t imagine being Black in America is an easy thing. But Obama was raised in Polynesia by white grandparents and then went on to Harvard, community service, the Senate, and now the presidency. Obama’s journey seems to have been very easy. His skin color opened all the right doors for him instead of slamming them shut. Obama didn’t march against segregation. Obama didn’t fight for affirmative action. He planted no tree. He carried no water for that tree. Obama has just come along and picked the fruits. That is easy street. This is not a great American story. This is not a triumph of will over adversity. This is a story of baby-boomer entitlement. This is the story of the yuppy next door. These stories are a dime a dozen on aisle 3 at Whole Foods.
    You may agree or disagree with McCain but at least you know where he stands. He has a long track record to judge him by. McCain has a long list of hits and misses. He has made mistakes (like us all) but that is because he had been trying to do things and change things all his life. Obama markets himself as the candidate with an unblemished record, but that is only because he doesn’t have a record. We have nothing to judge Obama by. All he gives us is his word and we are supposed to put all our trust in his future promises. But these promises keep changing: Obama has produced two contradictory promises on Iraq, two contradictory promises on NAFTA, and two contradictory promises on taxes. Are we supposed to judge him by the original promise he made, or by his most recent one? The candidate who flows with the changing winds of polls is the lightweight. That much we know.
    I feel very embarrassed for buying into the Obama phenomena. Maybe now that the weather is changing I see things in a new light. I feel sheepish for falling for the marketing pitch. Where do I go to get a refund?
    I think that many voters like me are looking for clarity in our next president. I feel I know what kind of man McCain is, and that I can trust him. McCain gets my vote.

    The fact is, mike, what you have said is not only racially charged, but frankly false, and unjustified. Who are you to suggest that Obama does not know what it is like to be black. There is one thing you cant hide, the color of your skin, and im sorry to say, mike, but in this country, black americans are disadvantaged. You would be a fool to suggest otherwise. I have news for you. John McCain is the freerider. Not Barack Obama. Talk about hits and misses. He has really had an affect on us policy. How many of the issues that john mccain “went against the bush administration” do you think he had any effect on? YOU ARE DREAMING. At the beginning of all of this, Barack Obama and his wife Michelle owned a total of 1.5 million dollars. I repeat. go ahead ant factcheck this. 1.5 million dollars. He has not had it easy. Common political knowledge says that you have to have money to win elections. John McCain is worth something like 100 million dollars or more. Im sure that he made that money honestly and not through his connections as a senator (see “Keating 5″).

    ” Obama markets himself as the candidate with an unblemished record, but that is only because he doesn’t have a record.”

    – almost Correct

    “we have nothing to judge Obama by”

    -not correct

    While it is true that he has a very short record, this does not mean he has no record. One major issue that comes to mind is the economy. That thing that has lost 35 percent of its value and is completely burning alive right now. I have news for you. This fire is only about 5 % contained and the flames are about to jump over the hill and run out of control. Do you understand how business works in this country? Businessess pay their employess off olf LOANS. Loans that they can not recieve money from. Loans that they have to pay back but are not able to spend. Loans that should be backed with, I dont know, money!?? This false economy is breaking and thanks to the last 30 years of conservative economic policy which has produced a false economy, you and I are about to pay. Mark my words you will pay for electing John McCain. Not with anything but money. You will pay with your money. We need to go back to the same economic policy that grew out of the last great recession of our counrty. This involved what now is called socialized programs (See: “Fox News”) and cuts in spending. By the government, and by like, us dude.

    I feel embarrased to know that racist judgemental people like you find it necessary to literally bash Barack Obama because he is black. Do you not understand your own claim?
