Posts Tagged ‘John McCain’

I am aware of both the Berg lawsuit and Leo Donofrio’s lawsuit challenging the eligibility of Obama to hold the office of POTUS.  I have been trying not to put my hopes in these, but I do think the fact that the Supreme Court is holding a conference on the matter 12/5 says this one just might go somewhere.

The day after the election, I realized that no one is going to want to go after the “historic black POTUS”.  I thought I just have to accept that he is what we are stuck with now.  I go back and forth on it, but do still feel like he will get away with this, but get caught at something down the road.  Another part of me wants to believe that there are powers that be in the SCOTUS that will do their job and do the right thing.  I am torn about what to think and also know this is not up to me.  I also have no idea how to go forward and accept this phoney as our leader, given how I feel about him.

I also do not understand why others high up in government, such as Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin, and many more who must know about this issue would allow it to continue.  Is it because the gOP wants to run Schwartzeneggar next?  Is it really not important to them to uphold the constitution?  What is going on here?

Tell me your thoughts on the lawsuits and also the role of other politicians who likely know about the issue.  What the heck is going on in America?  Also, what the heck is up with Hillary and Bill Clinton?  Why all the overboard campaigning and why does Hillary want to be Secretary of State under a snake?  Does she have dirt on him, enough to be the controller?  Is she just being naive?  Will he want her so that he can then get rid of her?  Tell me your thoughts on this subject.  I am also interested in new theories and insights.

What Barack Obama represents to me

 

As a lifelong democrat, many people could not fathom how I rejected Barack Obama as the democratic nominee.  It’s time to clear that up for you.  I have tried to do so in discussions, but was often cut off.  The listener would cover their ears and say lalalalala, I can’t hear you, or hide their head in the sand.  That is why I have written this. My hope is  that over the next 4 years, you will be able to  understand  that I did not then, nor will I now or in the future support Community Organizer, Barack Hussein Obama, and why.

I vetted my candidates and when I vetted Obama, I thought he was a joke.  He is an empty box with pretty, shiny, sparkly wrapping and colorful ribbons.  When you open the box, there is nothing in it, except that it also doesn’t smell right.  When I compared resumes and platforms of Clinton, Edwards, and Obama, really the first thought in my head was, “ok, that guy’s a joke”.  He had no business running.  He had no record and was running Clinton’s platform with a few down grades.  To listen to pundits say their platforms are almost identical, that was not reassuring.  All that said to me is Obama could not come up with something clever on his own.  I could go on and on with other examples of plagiarism and his life and his record or lack thereof, but that would be a whole other essay.

So let’s get back to what Barack Obama represents to me and why I can’t support that.

 

1.       Barack Obama means racism.  What this represents to me is that misplaced idol worship equals that you do not have to accomplish anything of importance and you can be handed The Presidency of the United States of America just because of your skin color.  I do not support that and I never will.  For all of you who think that race relations are now greatly improved now that you have given this phoney something he never earned, there are people like me who say hold on a minute.  To give something this important away to someone who is black, just so you can feel good about yourself is RACIST.  Yes, it is racist to favor someone just because of their skin color.  If Barack Obama had been a white man running with that resume, with a plagiarized platform, he would have never made it past super Tuesday at his best.  The black candidate that I’ll vote for would respect himself enough that he wouldn’t dream of running prematurely.  That person would take pride in his/her accomplishments and experience and speak to me as a voter by saying, “I have done A, B, C, and D for my constituents and I will work hard for you.”  That person would earn my vote and it would not be because of his or her skin color.  I’ve often wondered with Obama, what’s you hurry?

 

2.      Barack Obama means sexism.  What he represents to me is that when a highly qualified woman and an extremely unqualified man apply for a job, the man should get the job-always.  I do not support this and I never will.  I will fight against this for myself and every woman.  For those of you Obama supporters who think this is ok, especially those of you who have daughters, let me know how it feels when you lose out on a job to a less qualified man or you have to watch it happen to your daughter.  I was fighting for you and your daughters and friends and family, too.  That is why I so strongly supported Hillary Clinton.  Let me add that if I had just supported her because she was a woman that would have been sexist and if the roles were reversed and she had Obama’s resume and he had her resume, I would have supported the more experienced candidate, Obama.  Period.  I would not have voted based solely on gender anymore than I could vote based strictly on race.

 

3.      Barack Obama means a free ride.  What he represents to me is that when people work hard, they should not be rewarded.  There is no reason to work hard.  You will just get kicked in the face over the new, shiny, sparkly, well funded marketing campaign.  I do not support that and I never will.  In my opinion, both Hillary Clinton and John McCain have earned the job of President of the United States of America.  They have both served this country all their lives, have a record that shows a commitment to improve this country for the people who live here, and have proven their love for this country time and time again.  Obama, what has he done?  He has only served himself.  I have absolutely no confidence in his commitment to our military and their needs.  Why?  Because he has never served, nor does he have children he would have to see in harm’s way because they are serving.   For that reason alone he has zero real understanding of the needs of the military.  I realize that Hillary Clinton did not serve in the military either, but she served this country as first lady, one who was attacked and villified because she wanted to be actively involved in matters of the country instead of just practicing her parade wave.  She has the scars to prove it.  I’m sure I don’t have to go into all of John McCain’s scars and how he got them and why in my opinion of the three he has earned my vote and I respect him the most as a candidate.  He almost died for this country and could have come back and relaxed, he instead chose to serve this country more, scars and aches, and all did not stop him.  Yes, Clinton and McCain have earned the job as President in my eyes.  Obama hasn’t earned a damned thing and that bothers me tremendously.  I hope those who put Obama in office find that he was worth it because 2 very deserving decent people were trashed in order to get him there.  Let me change that to 3 because Sarah Palin was trashed as well and still is today even though, hello?  Your guy won.  Why is everyone still afraid of Sarah Palin?

 

4.      Barack Obama means selfishness.  What he represents to me is that we should not be grateful for the opportunities we have as free Americans.  I do not support that and I never will.  America, according to the Obamas is a place where you can never get ahead.  These are people who wanted a free pass to the top and got it and they’re still not happy.  In America if you have or can make up a poor me story, people will vote for you because “America is a downright mean country” (Michelle Obama 3/5/08).  Yes, Barack and Michelle, I feel so sorry for you both.  Gee, in America you got to go to Harvard, Columbia and Princeton, become lawyers (only to allow those licenses to expire since), make money off from books labeled as autobiographies (when in reality, much of it is fiction), live in a 1.65 million dollar mansion that you purchased with the help of a corrupt slumlord now convicted of 16 counts of money laundering, fraud, and bribery because you couldn’t afford that house and just had to have it, and been carried up the political ladder to the top by age 47, without having had any actual accomplishments to get there.  What a sad story.  Poor me, I could only get the shitty job of being President in America.  Boo hoo.  Barack Obama has never actually done any real work or held a full time job.  He was a community organizer, I guess, so I’ll give him that one, but otherwise he is a zero.  He was the first African American editor of the Harvard Law Review and never actually wrote anything.  He didn’t do his job there.  He was a lawyer who only tried a couple of cases in his whole career, his main client was ACORN.  He didn’t actually practice law.  He was a senator who voted present 130 times so he could claim both sides of an issue.  He didn’t pass any legislation until Emil Jones decided to make something of him and gave him bills that were the work of other senators so that he could claim credit for them to move up the ladder.  He had no problem claiming credit for other people’s work.  The man has never held a full time job, nor held a job very long, and I’m supposed to trust his commitment to this very important job?  That is blind faith.

 

5.      Barack Obama means our government will be made up of those who can buy it.  What he represents to me is that the Presidency of the United States of America is yours if you can raise and bribe people with the most money.  (sometime look up how much money each candidate donated to delegates and also how much money they received from Fannie and Freddie)  He raised almost a billion dollars, much of which came from illegal foreign donations (why?  Oh, that would be another essay, but I digress).  McCain stayed with Public Campaign financing as he had promised to and keeping his promise cost him the election.  Obama outspent Clinton 4 or 5 to 1 and just barely pulled off the nomination.  He supposedly out spent McCain 8-1.  People say McCain had no chance to win, but had McCain had as much money what would have happened?  We don’t know, but it would have been nice to know if Obama had used public financing as he had promised, if he would have actually won.

 

6.      Barack Obama means you don’t have to keep your promises.  What this represents to me is that you can promise everyone everything to get what you want and then say screw them when that isn’t working for you anymore.  I do not support this and I never will.  He made promises to his supporters on NAFTA, Public Financing, FISA, immediate withdrawal of troops in Iraq, and went back on every one of those promises to get elected.  Now one should trust his promises as President?  Well, that doesn’t help me trust him.

 

7.      Barack Obama thinks I am stupid.  What he represents to me is that he will try to fool me because he thinks I am dumb.  I do not support voting for someone who wants to fool me and I never will.  He tells me that I should vote for him because he represents change.  What kind of change?  No one really knows.  He tells me he is not George W. Bush.  Well, duh.  You are not George W. Bush, Barack.  Yes, I already knew that.  Clinton, McCain, Edwards, Huckabee, none of them are George W. Bush either.  Only George W. Bush is George w. Bush and no one else matches his fingerprints, so again, what kind of change?  Where are the specifics?  What I see, Mr. Obama is that you are the most like George W. Bush than any other candidate that ran in either party this year.  You are a narcissist, ego maniac, stuttering liar.  You have things to hide.  You like to play with corrupt buddies and you don’t like to be asked questions.  When you are caught in a lie, you immediately turn it on someone else and blame them and bring attention on them.  Example?  Joe the plumber.  When you can’t blame them or get the focus off of you, then you cry racism.  Yes, you are the third term of George Bush in my opinion because it is the person, personality and not the party who makes the biggest problems.  You seem to think you can do no wrong and are entitled to everything you want.  Sounds very GW to me.  The problem here is that we all knew Bush was the puppet and Cheney the puppetmaster.  I am not yet certain who your puppetmaster is.  I guess we’ll find out.  I know it’s not Biden.

 

8.      The fantasy that BHO is the new JFK.  I do not support that and I never will.  Why?  BHO is the new JFK?   HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….um, no.  Enough said.

 

 

9.      Barack means open season on attacking women.  What he represents to me is that the democratic party is now the party that excludes women, gays and hard working people.  My value in society is now slightly better than dog shit on the bottom of one’s shoe.  Women (and I think GLBTs) had to be moved down the ranks in order to build up the African American cause.  I don’t support this and I never will.  I see evidence that Barack Obama doesn’t think much of women.  He used his story of being raised by a single mother to gain sympathy votes, but yet in honor of his mother, what has he done?  He wrote a book called “Dreams of my Father”, which he wrote in honor of a father that abandoned him when he was just 2 years old.  The mother who raised him until he was 10?  No honor for her.  They both abandoned him, but Dad gets a book.  Why?  Deeper wounds from mother maybe because he remembers it more?  He also used his mother to get elected, but then admits he did not go see her when she died.  In a debate with McCain, he mentioned how he knew about the problems people have with health insurance because his mother really had to fight with hers on her deathbed.  My question is  did you help her Barack?  You, a constitutional lawyer?  Did you make one phone call or write a letter or file a motion on mother’s behalf?  What did you do about it?  Is this another made up story?  Well, we’ll never know because Obama doesn’t like tough questions and it’s against his rules for me to ask.  I have seen a lot of attacks against Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin this year and not once did I ever hear Obama or any democrat speak out against it.  Not once.  It was ok, it helped Obama, so why do the right thing?  I personally this year have been told that I was given boobs, but no brain and that is why women are so stupid.  I have heard that women cannot have an important job like president or vice president because they are emotional, unintelligent and in Obama’s own words “Sometimes when Hillary is periodically feeling down she goes on the attack”.  Nice one Barack.  Well, what I am trying to say is that when people call this historic election an advance of America, I say bullshit.  There is no advance when you build up one group to tramp down another group.  The day we have equal rights is when it is for all and this has not happened and has been set back probably for my entire lifetime.

 

10.  Barack Obama means a free pass.  What he represents to me is that he has been given the ultimate get out of jail free card.  Media bias and cover-up like never before.  I do not support that and I never will.  Barack Obama has so many skeletons in his closet that a closet wouldn’t be big enough to hold them all.  I guess we’d have to say that Obama has many skeletons in his cemetery because that makes more sense.  Somewhere along the way, the mainstream media decided that Obama could never win if we really knew about him, his associations and his background.  They decided to no longer report anything negative about Obama.  Then when they were forced to do so, they would make excuses for the one.  Wow.  This has scared me the absolute most of all.  What makes this man so special that he should not be held accountable?  How long is this going to continue?  Does he get a free pass for his entire presidency?  I suppose he will because the media created him and they don’t want us to know they were wrong, so now we have the don’t ask, don’t tell president.  We have a president that no one is going to hold accountable.  How is that different from the last administration?  At least with GW the press wasn’t afraid to go negative, but with Obama they refuse.  So America just elected a guy who has a huge ego and feels entitled and had to be propped up to get in, I call it the no Politician Left behind program, and we are expecting him to do a good job without any accountability?  Ok.  Good luck there.  GW-impeachments off the table (democratic congress 2006).  Barack Obama-do anything your dark heart desires you nice black man and we’ll never tell.  Just today, Chris Mancrush Matthews told Joe Scarborough on Mornin’ Joe “I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work” (Nov. 6, 2008) so I guess on MSNBC, at least, the media bias and cover-up continues.  We’ll find out somewhere around 2012 or god forbid, 2016, what really went on…maybe.

So to Obama supporters who will have trouble understanding why I despise this guy, read this and see what he means to me.  No I don’t like him at all.  I haven’t come up with one good thing I can say about the man.  He will not be my President.  You bought him and you own him.  For me, he was just shoved down my throat.  I was able to spit him out.

I wish all America well with this Administration of change.  I will be fascinated watching what happens now that there aren’t so many pretty speeches or greek columns or whirlwind world tours and fireworks.  Now we have to pay attention to the actions more than the words because now it isn’t a game anymore.  I started watching the actions back in March and nothing I saw earned my respect or trust or loyalty to Obama.  We’ll see if there really is a change in him or not because if not this is just an arrogant, self centered, egomaniacal, creepy person and I am afraid for my Country and my life.

This election year sucks!  The love of my life is an Obama supporter.  He has never been strong for Obama.  He was happy with whoever became the nominee, Clinton or Obama.  Earlier this year he thought that Clinton could not win because she was known to be a bitch and had made a lot of enemies.  He thought Obama would win easily due to his popularity.

For reasons I won’t go into here, we had been apart for a few months early in the year and reunited in March.  It was after our state caucus and so we knew we were not on the same side politically, but did not know how bad it would get after Hillary was out.  I wish we had been together in January and February.  I think I could have told him all I knew about Obama and why I’ll never vote for him.  I did not say much because our caucus was passed and there was nothing to be done, I thought.  Plus, I could not see that I would get my man to write letters and emails, etc.  Anyway, now we are at this horrible place of non understanding.  When I speak to him, I do not try to change his vote, as much as I’d like to.  I am just trying to get him to understand my discomfort with many things Obama.  He cannot understand it.  I listen to him and why he thinks  has to win.  I do not try to change his vote.  I just agree with him on what I can, disagree on what I disagree with, and hold my breath until November.  The problem with his reasons to vote for Obama is that blind faith and false image that I know is not there.  He has trouble imagining how I would vote for a republican after the past 8 years and why, even if I hate Obama, I wouldn’t choose the democrat VP just in case something happened to Obama.  I have trouble understanding how he cannot see the con being played.  He cannot see that he is being lied to and he cannot see that Obama is a phoney!

The question of the last legs of this election is, how do we talk to Obots?  What is the best way?  Early on I didn’t say much because I was learning what Obama was all about and couldn’t prove too much and really thought it would all come out in the media.  Well, we all know how that went!  So what to do now?  Just continue to disagree and hope enough people vote McCain so that it is a landslide victory?  That could happen because I know very few people who are voting for Obama.  Most are voting McCain and a few are staying home.  Do I give him the onslaught of newspaper and magazine articles and make him mad?  Do we still wait for the media?  will October make it all clear?  Should I just wait until November 5th and then see what happens?  We have seriously almost broken up over this election!  That is just retarded, I know, and so we keep going while at odds.  I truly do not know how to proceed!

What I do know is that come November 5th, one of us is going to be very unhappy.  I have already promised myself that if it is the worst case scenario (I can’t even bring myself to write it, but you know) that I will not blame him for a McCain loss.  I have informed him that I will only accept blame from him if Obama loses by one vote!

What helps is that a few weeks ago my boyfriend informed me that I was right and that Hillary was the more electable candidate.  He doesn’t now think Obama can win.  Phew!  At least he is preparing himself!  I do feel bad though for all the obots who are just following that fantasy image they see and who think the dems are unbeatable after Bush.  I do hope that somehow, someway, someday everyone will find out the truth about Obama.  Then I hope my relationship can quickly get back to normal after this horrible election year!

     Just a quick note to say thank you to all others who, like me, are bad democrats.  For me this election year is just too important at this time in history to trust to an unqualified, inexperienced president.  I am certain that this has been as hard for all democrat PUMAs as it was for me.  Many tears have been shed this year for my country, for my party, for Hillary clinton and the divisive nature of election year 2008 (which I am pretty sure if made into a movie, will be a horror flick).  I so much appreciate all of you for being strong and not willing to fall in line.  I am seriously worried about the state of my country and became terrified of the thought of Barack Obama as our leader.  We must not allow that to happen.  Thank you for crossing party lines to vote for John McCain or if you just can’t quite go there, for sitting this one out and rejecting the nominee.  Of course please know that my blog name of baddemocrat is really just for fun.  I know that we are the real patriots, putting country before party, to be the greatest democrats that exist!

    How I looked forward to election year 2008!  Friends have referred to me as a “political geek”, which I love!  I love a good political debate and I also usually have a really great handle on what is going on in the world of American politics.  It ain’t pretty, that’s for sure!  This year is pretty damn ugly!  I hope we never have another one like it!

     I was so ready for that democrat being in the white house!  Slam dunk, right?  No brainer?  Dems in a landslide.  Well, that old saying is true about when you assume: ass=u+me.  It shows how fitting the donkey is for the democratic party to have as their symbol!  Do you think maybe if we got a new symbol, the dems could actually win the White House?  No.  It is not the donkey’s fault.  It is the fault of those leaders who can’t lead!

     So my 2008 story went like this.  Sometime during summer of 2007, I saw Barack Obama on Larry King.  I have to admit I was somewhat impressed.  He seemed so charming and like a breath of fresh air.  I was kind of for Hillary Clinton and had campaigned for Kerry/Edwards, but started entertaining helping Barack Obama.  As time went by, I was really torn about who I would vote for in my Caucus.  I just could not decide between Hillary clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama.  My Caucus was February 5th, 2008 so about 3 weeks before I decided that I really had to methodically figure out the best person for the job.  What did I do?  I looked at each candidate’s website.  I looked at each one’s voting record.  I compared where they stood on the issues.  Immediately I realized that basically I am hiring someone for a job and I should choose who is most qualified and who I turst the most to do the job.  I compared resumes.  I threw Obama’s out right away.  That was a joke, right?  That was how I saw it.  I wasn’t sure what was going on, but to me it was a joke that the guy was even running!  Not to mention that it seemed to me he had a down graded version of Clinton’s platform.  Between Edwards and Clinton, I decided that Hillary was more qualified, would secure universal health care for the country, had a record of getting things done, and I trusted her the most.  Hillary it was!  Still would be if it was up to me!!!  For length purposes, I won’t go into my caucus horror story, except to say I believe there was fraud here and Obama won my state.  I was shocked.  I decided that I must be missing something in this Obama character.  I mean really, everyone talks about him like he is a Saint!  I kept digging for evidence that Obama was this great guy, but I could never find it.  Anywhere.  I only found evidence that something wasn’t right about this guy!  Well, we all know what happened as time went by.  No vetting, no MSM pieces on Obama that aren’t fluff pieces, sexism, racism, and DNC disenfranchisement and corruption.  I am so stunned.  I feel so knowlegable on Obama that I could write a book!  I tell friends and family, some of whom think I am nuts because “Why wouldn’t that be on the news?  Can’t be true.”  I am now at the point where I cannot listen to or watch Barack Obama and I make up little nicknames every single day on the guy! 

     It has been a costly year for me personally.  I have had to give up a couple of friends who have attacked me personally as a woman and I will not tolerate that.  I have never personally attacked them for who they are!  I am struggling to maintain a relationship with my boyfriend of 3 years, who is not a strong Obama, but will vote for him because he is a loyal democrat.  He just cannot understand why I can’t get on board and why I would vote for the prolife, SCOTUS appointments of McCain.  I try to explain it to him, but I seem to lose him when I start naming all the terrorist ties!  I also lost the party I have loved for my whole life!  I am not sure if I will return to that party ever either!  I hope I can after there is a massive housecleaning (with bleach)!  Time will tell.  In the meantime I have some to terms with voting for John McCain.  He is a man I trust and respect and the alternative is unthinkable to me.  I absolutely will not accept Barack Obama into the white house! 

     I have gained some things, too, though.  I am now forever a PUMA.  I will always vet my candidate myself and I have learned that it is always a good idea to pay attention to what the other side is doing and who they are!  I do hope to recover soon from this case of demcratic diarrhea from the DNC, you know, that shit is really running, so I can finally feel better!
