The Democrats have always been able to expose
scandal among Republican and Conservative
candidates for public office. .maybe that’s because
they have so much experience in it themselves.
Going back to "Boss Tweed", I don’t think that one
election has gone by, without the Dems letting loose
a barrage of claims, accusations and innuendo about
the opposing party candidates..... usually before
anybody can cite them.
We all saw their successful use, aided by the MSM,
of that technique, during the 2006 election cycle.
Because of several high-profile "scandals", and
the Democrat’s expertise at manipulating truth and
exaggerating relatively minor infractions, the
Republicans lost control of the Congress. Their
hype, gave the impression that all Republicans are
"dirty" and shouldn’t be trusted. The amazing part
of this is that all of the previouos Democratic scandals,
indictments, frauds, etc., etc., were responsible for the
Dems losing control in the first place.
Now we are left with a Congress, completely controlled
by Democrats.......... far from "pure as the driven snow",
and we are not seeing anything of what was promised
to the poor fools who voted them in. I for one, never
believed one word of their rhetoric, which is just
regurgitated from some previous election speeches, with
the date changed. I also, couldn’t in good conscience,
vote for any Democrat under the present circumstances.
They have much to prove to me, before earning my vote.
The party of my father is long gone............ and with it
we have the "party of Huffington, Moore and moveon.".
Once again, we are at a crossroads in this wonderful country.
Come November, we will have to decide on exactly who
is going to be steering our "Ship of State". I hope that God
keeps us all laughing long after that day...... because he sure
does seem to have a great sense of humor. The once-thought
shoe-in, Hillary Clinton.......... doesn’t seem to be the best
choice anymore; at least not to the democrats who have been
voting in the primaries and caucuses.
Albeit, the alternative doesn’t have it either. Barack Obama
has come out of nowhere, directly to the forefront of the
battle,...... and on what? Oprah's endorsement?
Change? Be very careful with that word, "change". Change
for what..... for the sake of change? Sorry, I don’t buy it!
He is a first-term Senator, who until seven months ago, was
known to only a handfull outside his home state. Now, with
a lot of fluff and flair, "eloquent speeches full of empty rhetoric",
he would have us believe that he is qualified to run the country.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my country run by a
president who has an acknowledged friendship with the organizer
of "the weather men".......... a known US terrorist organization.
Nor should our president even remotely associate with a church,
"Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago", that refers to
itself as, "Unashamedly black and unapologetically Christian"...
whose pastor had a close personal relationship with Louis
Farrahkan, of "The Nation of Islam".... whose theology teaches
that, "whites are devils". As if that weren’t enough, Obama’s
"spiritual advisor", Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr,.conferred a
special award on Farrahkan
Only after these stories broke, did we find out that
Farrahkan had endorsed Obama, who was very hesitant
during TV interviews, to reject that backing.
All of this came together for me today, when word of New
York Governor Elliot Spitzer’s involvement in an FBI sting
on a prostitution ring, was released. Only this time, Spitzer
was on the wrong side of the (bed) fence. This in addition to the
fact that he is already under investigation on several other
fronts, involving suspicious and possibly illegal activity.
In my opinion........... it couldn’t happen to a nicer man.
When he was running for his office, he was ruthless against
his opponents and used as many dirty tricks as he could legally get
away with. He made sure that every detail of their lives was exposed.
Now, I guess it’s his turn. Oh, and ironically, and somewhat
reminiscent of current platforms............he theme was CHANGE!
With him out of the Governor’s Mansion, and former
Lieutenant-Governor Paterson taking over, things might just
get a little rougher for Hillary’s bid for the White House. I
don’t want to be the one to raise the "race card", but sorry folks,
it’s already been raised and quite high. I am sure that Paterson
will do everything in his power to promote Obama for the job
of President of the US. What am I basing that on? Simple
logic my friends, ....................simple logic.
Mrs. Obama proud of her country for the "first time"........only
because her husband is in the running for the Democratic
nomination, is racist. Barack’s friendship with, and his
almost refusal to disavow Farrahkan’s support....... a known racist
and anti-semite, is racist. His church, by it’s own definition
is racist. Obama garnering about 85% of the black vote, in all
the primaries and caucuses, is racist.
Now, I don’t want to see Hillary Clinton as President, but I sure
as hell don’t want to see Obama as President either. She carries
too much baggage, and he has absolutely no basis on which
to make an intelligent and informed decision on the safety of
our country. His backing comes from the far left, the yuppie-
puppies, and unfortunately, a large percentage of blacks who
are still "getting even" for something that we Americans had
nothing to do with.

Clinton did not object to the DNC stripping the states of their delegates when the decision was made last year. Some of her backers were on the committee that made the decision to do so and actively supported it.
"Now, when they believe it serves their political interests, they're trying to rewrite the rules," Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said in a call with reporters.—The Associated Press
The Sunday news shows were all a blazed with the prospect that Democrats would destroy Party unity over a fight for delegates who “don’t count for anything.”
That after all is how Sen. Clinton described Florida’s and Michigan’s delegates when she was campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire according to Sen. Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe. But now that there’s a very real possibility that Democrats are headed toward a brokered Convention meaning that neither Sen. Hillary Clinton nor Sen. Barack Obama will have the 2,025 delegates needed to secure the Democrat nomination before the convention we have a rare opportunity to see the open and exposed machinations of Democrat operatives without Democrats being able to blame Republicans for Democrat’s usual dirty play because this is purely a Democrat fight.
Democrat primary rules were established and agree to by all Democrat officials that no state could hold their Democratic primaries prior to February 5 without being granted a special waiver.
But in complete defiance of those rules Democrats in the states of Florida and Michigan decided to flout the Democratic National Committees rules and hold their primaries before the February 5 date.
As a result the DNC, both Clinton’s and Obama’s campaigns and Democrat elders all agreed that Florida and Michigan would be stripped of their delegates and neither Florida or Michigan’s delegates would be seated at the Democratic convention. That was the rule. Senator Clinton had people on the rules committee that made this decision.
But now that it seem to benefit Senator Clinton’s campaign to have Florida and Michigan’s delegates counted the Clinton campaign has threaten to sue to have the delegates seated in addition the Clinton campaign is working behind the scenes to break the rules that they supported without prejudice just months before.
"The Clinton campaign just said they have two options for trying to win the nomination - attempt to have superdelegates overturn the will of the Democratic voters or change the rules they agreed to at the 11th hour in order to seat nonexistent delegates from Florida and Michigan," said Obama campaign manager David Plouffe.(See here)
"The Clinton campaign should focus on winning pledged delegates as a result of elections, not these say-or-do-anything-to-win tactics that could undermine Democrats' ability to win the general election."
Again Sen. Clinton’s backers were on the DNC rule committee that made the decision to strip Florida and Michigan of their delegates and her backers actively supported the decision. Nevertheless, here’s Senator Clinton denying that she ever agreed to strip the two states of their delegates. (See below)
What happened to the rules? Change happened to the rules, the same kind of change that Democrats are promising to bring to America. It’s the very change that Democrats are invoking with intent to the rules in the United States if they are ever elected to the Presidency.
Though Sen. Clinton claims that she never agreed to strip Florida and Michigan of their delegate, she only agreed not to campaign in either state. Yet she did go to Florida and she did campaign.
As reported by Mike Glover of the associated press. Only Senator Clinton believes that she agree not to openly campaign in Florida so she held a closed rally/fundraiser instead. Some are suggesting that she winked or skated close the edge of the agreement not to campaign in Florida, on the other hand I see this as yet again a Democrat’s refusal to keep their word and abide by rules.
That‘s what the Democrat message of change is all about. Regardless of what the rules are and regardless of if they are beneficial to the greater public weal rules can and will be changed at the whelm of an oligarchy of Fascist Liberal Democrats if they are elected in November.
You may not find that terribly troubling because you believe in change but there is still the other half of the country that believes that rules are rules, heritage is heritage and American culture is American culture and these things should be honored and preserved not dismantled and destroyed for the sake of the Socialist idealists who make up the Democrat Party.
Furthermore, it’s Sen. Hillary Clinton behind this sudden confuse about the rules and whether or not the rules should be changed at the last minute. Reminiscent of Al Gore’s 2000 decision to withdraw his concession to then former Governor George Bush consequently Gore’s actions threw this country into the partisan war which we find ourselves today.
The DNC rules stipulate that states that have not been granted a special waiver must schedule presidential nominating contests after Feb. 5. Florida and Michigan Democrats chose to violate and openly defy DNC rules.
"While we may not like the rules, if we don't respect the rules, then we are going to have chaos," said committee member Yvonne Gates of Nevada.
It is reported that Sen. Obama said that he played by the rules, and the rules should be honored.
A look at how Democrats deal with this issue will give one a sense of how Democrats would run the Country. And it’s not looking so good for America.
