After watching the first of three presidential debates between Barack Obama and John McCain, I realized just how razor thin the veneer was between my not supporting Obama, and my supporting Obama for President. After watching the debate a couple of times with argus-eyed fixation, I started sensing certain characteristics of Obama that I had benightedly disregarded. Being inquisitive about my new found inclination for Obama, I sought confirmation. Fortunately, I knew where there lay a treasure trove of unbiased dictum, intellectual confirmation, and an exceeding abundance of reality–The Huffington Post, and the Daily Kos. These two great pseudo gazettes, are an anomaly in the journalistic caste system. They are thriving with the left, despite the fact that the substance of their columnist’s product seems to suggest a GED rather than MBA, or PhD. But they had me at right wing radicals.
Today, another definitive difference of character and leadership aptitude emerged today between John McCain and Barack Obama. John McCain not only asked to postpone his debate with Barack Obama on Friday, but simultaneously suspended his presidential campaign. McCain, being consistent with his remarks about…”he would rather lose the presidential campaign, than lose a war”, chose to return to the Senate and participate in the negotiations with the Wall Street crisis–or do the job he was elected to do. McCain stated, “America this week faces a historic crisis in our financial system. If we do not act, every corner of our country will be impacted. We cannot allow this to happen.”
Why all the wild spikes in oil demand? Surely that is the only answer for the price of a barrel of oil to jump 45% yesterday.
Yesterday oil jumped from $90 per barrel to $130 per barrel, or 45%. That was the largest ever one day rise in a price of a barrel of oil.
The short answer: No. The long answer: No.
To correct a problem from the most diminutive dimensions to the magnitude of the problem haunting Wall Street, the banking industry, and the mortgage industry, one must comprehend three fundamental components: First, define the problem. Second, define what caused the problem. Third, have a comprehensive plan to correct the problem by addressing the fundamentals causing the problem, as you understand them. Obama does not understand fully the dynamics of the financial problem, and is wandering around in a stupor as to what caused the problem, and is most assuredly incapable of devising a plan to both correct the problem, and implement adequate measures to prevent it in the future.
Since John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate, the Democrats have reacted by flooring the accelerator and tossing the steering wheel out the window in their carriage of hate. The left has been in absolute chaos, disorganization, and panic–they have also become infected with a mob mentality. Adding more propulsion to the left’s misguided meanderings was a substantial drop in the polls for Obama, and a significant rise for McCain –with the coveted independents and women voters. They are leaving Obama en-mass. Obama still has time, with 55 days left, to recover. But can he, with the direction he has chosen, and the media that had propped him up being the primary catalyst in alienating of voters? Obama, et al, have accelerated, and increased the very cause of their recent demise–hatefulness.
On Wednesday, Sept. 3rd, I wrote an article titled, The Character Assassination of Susan Palin and John McCain. It was about an article that Susan Reimer published in the Baltimore Sun with malevolent intent towards Sarah Palin. The main stream media, left wing blogs, and any publication associated with the left, has attacked Sarah Palin with a primal and unimaginable barbarity that would rival Beelzebub’s imagination–this is the bevy to which Susan Reimer has hitched her wagon. Granted, Reimer’s article was less rancid than most, but nonetheless, it was still filled with hate and lies. Of the limitless repugnant articles to choose from, I chose Reimer’s because of the author’s sophomoric ignorance.
The most effective method of judging the impact of an action is to observe the reaction it generates. John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as his Vice-President has caused rampant hysteria for the Democrats. One would have thought John McCain, by picking a Vice President with unabashed morals, was clutching a wooden stake and the Democrats were susceptible to the same fate as Vlade the Impaler.
