Some Silly Sentences / Seven Days Out

It is mind boggling to think back and recall how it all began with Iowa and how long this journey has been. I have tried to imagine how Barack feels, including all of you who have organised, volunteered, donated, and dedicated yourselves to the cause. Everyone who has been involved in this campaign should feel very proud. It has been an amazing effort and an historic contest. Now in only seven days, the fruits of your labour will be known. This final drive could make all the difference

The Man Who Never Was

The impulsive warmonger John McCain rushes to judgement, Barack Obama does not. People are beginning to understand, that unlike McCain, Obama weighs things carefully, he consults with experts, he asks quality questions, and then as his record shows, he usually makes a good decision. He acts like a modern leader.This builds confidence.

In A League of His Own

In correctly assessing the public mood and the issue upon which to construct his campaign for “Change” in Washington, Barack Obama displayed an uncanny sense of being at one with the people. Such a connectivity is the liveblood of every successful politican. Contrary to the McCain campaign, the Obama juggernaut has been brilliantly managed in every respect.

Obama All Sense Vs McCain Nonsense

John McCain keeps saying, “I know how to deal with Bin Laden, I know how to”get” him. I’ve got the experience”. This is crazy stuff from McCain, and unfortunately Barack let this claim go unchallenged. Maybe he believes that most people can see through this McCain nonsense. Think about it. If McCain knows how to”get” Bin Laden as he puts it, why hasn’t he let his Commander in chief and good friend President Bush or anyone else into the secret. Bush and the American military top brass need to hear “McCain’s” strategy for nailing Osama Bin Laden. Somehow I think they’ll be waiting a long time.

A Touch of Class

From the starting gun, the gentleman from Delaware, unflinchingly absorbed Sarah Palin’s verbal swipes, her untruths, her brashness, her habit of winking at the audience, her having a dig at Gwen Ifill, and her reading lines throughout the entire ninety minutes. To his credit Senator Biden was measured, appeared at ease, showed polite forbearance, good humour and an appreciation that all his opponent really had, was mostly repetitious hot air, a lot of cheek, and memorised lines.

Sarah from the Second Grade

Wow,Sarah,that is impressive.That’s really early career planning. Even then you were considering a life of beauty contests, sports broadcasting or with luck and one of your stock standard smiles, charging through the bearpit of politics. Winning in politics is like fighting with a bear, Sarah. You know a lot about bears, you’ve killed so many. However in politics, there’s no prize for second place and guns aren’t allowed. Right, Ms Barracuda?

Wall Street Robbers & Washington Friends

Unlike Bill Clinton’s legacy, President Franklin Delanor Rooseveldt, affectionately known as FDR, is especially remembered for his remarks following the signing into law of the financial regulations contained in the Glass Steagall Act of 1933. Also known as the Banking Act of 1933 (48 Stat. 162). Rooseveldt saw the Depression as a matter of confidence, people had stopped spending, investing and employing labor because they were afraid. As he stated in his inaugural address “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

Cometh the Hour / Cometh the Man

Just the kind of safe hands America needs over the next eight years to right the ship of state after eight years of the worst Presidency in living memory. The kind of safe hands and clear thinking Obama will employ to chart a new course to restore confidence in the economy via workable policy injections requiring targeted and limited regulation within segments of America’s financial markets. Measures specifically designed to kickstart and rebuild a vibrant and improved economic model from the entrails of a wrecked and crooked financial system.

My Holiday with McCain

Needless to say I was irritated at his large ego, and his rude behavior towards his wife and other women, but decided he must have some redeeming qualities as he had adopted a handicapped child from Bangladesh. I asked him about this one day and his response was shocking -“Oh, that was Cindy’s idea – I didn’t have anything to do with it. She just went and adopted this thing without even asking me. You can’t imagine how people stare when I wheel this ugly, black thing around in a shopping cart in Arizona. No, it wasn’t my idea at all.”

Lipstick On His Collar!

In just fifty three days, on November 4th 2008, America risks witnessing the prospect of seeing an unqualified, academically challenged, age challenged, knowledge challenged, work ethic challenged, temperament challenged, ego inflated, disingenuous, warmongering and always reckless John McCain, elected as the Republican President of the United States of America.
