Countdown to the Presidential Election

Edwards Can't Take a Pundit?

If John Edwards wants to play President he will need to learn how to handle the mountain of criticism that will come with the job.

Take for example Ann Coulter's remarks about John getting killed by terrorists. That remark really was low-ball and as I would say it doesn't advance the political dialogue in any meaningful way, but did it require a call from Mrs. Edwards to Hardball to ask her to stop?


Does John really think that all of this criticism will stop when he becomes President? As President you are going to be criticized 24/7 for at least 4 years straight. Think of all the bad press and commentary that Bush gets on a daily basis. Have you ever heard Laura Bush call up Hardball, Olbermann or Air America to ask them to be not so hard on her poor husband? Heck no.

John really needs to grow a couple and get on with the process of losing his second run for President.

P.S. Now that I have been hard on John does that mean Elizabeth is going to call me and ask me to stop?

Michael Moore Wants the Govt to be Even Bigger

Mr. Moore's latest movie lauds the positive qualities of state run health care. Yes, your health will now be in the hands of bureaucrats. Possibly the same ones who can't process U.S. Passports in a timely manner and who blew the Katrina recovery effort.

I always find it funny how we get compared to countries around the world. Cuba's stellar health care system cares for only 11 million people. The U.S. health care system serves just over 300 million people. The often noted Canadian system covers 33 million. The U.S. population and what we demand for quality health care would swamp any government system overnight.

What is worse is that this state system would be at the mercy of Washington. I can imagine that the gridlock and wasteful spending in D.C. will only complicate a monstrous and balky health care program. What would happen if a state run health care system got caught up in a D.C. style budgetary showdown and had to close due to lack of funding? That would be super as long as you don't get injured or sick. Also, would new medical treatments need Congressional approval before being approved for use?

As I see it the Federal government can barely operate as it is right now and I do not want a health care system to just, "barely operate," as well. We have a great system where almost any ailment can be treated to some extent if not cured outright. This feat has been accomplished through decades of progress and innovation and without government control.

Lets keep it that way.

Howard Dean, the Primary Defender or the Florida Hater

Howard Dean loves his primaries except for the one in Florida. If you don't know or care to know Florida has jumped their primary to Jan 29th of next year instead of holding the primary on Feb 5th.

Why wouldn't Florida want to hold it's primary on the 5th? Because there will be at least 22 other states holding primaries or caucuses on that same day. Why be lost in the crowd when you can be in the spotlight the week before the rest?

This move has apparently upset the Deanster and he has already blacklisted all democrats from campaigning in the Sunshine State. Now Howard has reduced Florida's primary to straw poll status (straw polls are meaningless and are only used to gauge opinion.) Now what law did Dean pass to accomplish this? None he just said so. For a party whose motto is, "count every vote," this seems a little two-faced, but remember we are talking about the leaders of the democratic party.

So the moral of this story is that it is OK to ignore votes, just as long you ignore the entire state while you are doing it.

Wi££iam J€₣₣€r$on is such a work of art, but so are his colleagues. How does a Congressman get a nickname of "Dollar Bill?" My guess is that ol' Will was a money whore, but I'm only guessing.

I would love to know why Jefferson requested a personal National Guard escort to his home while the rest of New Orleans was drowning in filth. Could it be he didn't want his cash to smell like rotten meat?

Perky Pelosi

Given the current attitude toward the U.S. military by the democratic led Congress i.e. "Your our bi**hes." This shouldn't come as big of a surprise.

House Majority Leader Pelosi now wants the military, "which is stretched thin," as described by her to tote around the kids of Congressmen/women free of charge.

That's not even the best part. If poor Pelosi feels like she can't make a trip due to a cold, one of her kids can go in her place "to fulfill the protocol needs of the official trip." Click here (end of 3rd paragraph)

This policy is just super. Now we will be paying for non-elected officials flying around the world and having them act as if they were elected.

Since Pelosi wants this to be reality she should also allow the member's kids to vote on the Floor of the House and also hold committee positions as well.

The Dems New Strategy for Iraq

Have you been asking yourself, what will the dems do next on Iraq? Well the short answer is place blame on U. S. generals. In a recent interview with liberal bloggers Sen. Harry Reid called Marine Gen. Peter Pace, "Incompetent." Click Here

Sen. Reid is really setting a great political tone in D.C. these days by saying such remarks. I'd like to know in what chapter of Tzun Zu's Art of War does it say to denigrate your military commanders when the mission is getting rough.

That being aside the next step to resolve the Iraq issue is to vote. Yes kids the Senate will start voting later this year on all sorts of Iraq related issues. These votes are not meant to solve anything, but only meant to be brought up in the next election cycle in some slick campaign ad.

I have to say when I think the dems just can not outdo themselves on Iraq they go and outdo themselves once more. The dems are weak on this war as the day is long and if they gain the White House next year expect to see a Somalia-like pullout by U.S. forces and an Al-Qaeda victory parade rolling down the streets of Baghdad soon after.

How Bad is This Immigration Bill?

A) It makes prohibition look like good idea.

B) It makes the last immigration bill look good.

C) It's gonna cost some politicians some of their jobs next year.

D) All of the above.

I have to say that this bill sucks, but why does it have to suck so bad. The words immigration and reform go together like peanut butter and jelly.

I can not explain to you why any politician wants to give amnesty out to millions of people who broke the law to be here in the first place.

I would like to ask the powers at be why are they pandering to all of the illegals instead of paying attention to the legal citizens who elected them in the first place.

Dem Candidates Debate Who is the Biggest Pansy

The crowded and convoluted field of democratic candidates sparred over the weekend in an effort to convince their base that he or she was the biggest pansy of them all.

Sen Clinton seemed to be the least pansy by voting for the Iraq war way back in 2003 and not apologizing for it.

Coming in at medium rare pansy is John Edwards. He like Clinton voted for the Iraq war when he was in the Senate, but he has since renounced his vote and now wants the troops out ASAP.

Winner of the stone cold uber pansy award is Barack Obama. He has never supported the Iraq war and would retreat from the war zone as soon as he becomes President.

How could one not just be in awe in front of such leadership?
