McCain Obama Scuffle
One of the things always common in past elections was the ability to launch out with full attacks on your political opponent. George Bush and Karl Rove toasted John McCain’s ass in the 2000 election so bad that it left John McCain with a bad taste in his mouth. So bad a taste that he morphed into George Bush to be his political parties candidate???
It’s ironic that John McCain who was the champion of change back then is now the stay the course candidate for the Republican Party. Is it me or has the Straight Talk Express run off the road and slammed into the out house? There isn’t enough toilet paper to clean up this mess that McCain has re-invented himself into. One thing is certain is that the Maverick is apologizing for the simple fact that someone used the Christian middle name of Barack Hussein Obama over and over before John McCaine took the stage.
This isn’t a shameless fact or reasonable excuse to apologize for giving a man’s Christian middle name or is it? Politics is all about the bait and switch and with the internet being a non stop twenty four hour feed of news then this was a classic we have this great car for you hear and we have this nice self destructing Ford Pinto for you in your mental price range. The end result of the talking points is to be afraid of a man Christened with an Arab middle name. If that isn’t more Bush II politics I don’t know what is?
Throw that mud up against the wall and the low retention level voters buy it. “I saw it on the Internet that Obama is an Arab Muslim” so it must be true. For the record, emails do not count as the internet and sites like this one that actually point out facts. Next line of thought after the middle name drop is that Arab’s attacked America and we are at war with fundamentalist Muslims who are also Arabs. Follow the trail of domino’s and that is the Republican war machine come the general election. Telling you who to be afraid of and why you should vote for keeping America closed up with our own version of the Great Wall of China.
One of the talk radio stations I listen to for Imus in the Morning every single day along with Eagan and Braude at lunch time also has Jay Severin on for the drive home that is a political mind provoking talk radio station. 96.9 FM WTKK in Boston has a good mix of opinion in a very Liberal state but does not connect well with Liberal opinions for the most part. With the loss of Air America in the local Boston market there is no other broadcast available for good talk radio. That being said they have an excellent orator in Jay Severin who is also a national political radio talking point go to guy that has some clear points from a Conservative but Independent side of the aisle political theology. You don’t know how many times I screamed at him for being an idiot on the drive home and in the same respect agreed with his points on other issues. That is what politics is all about, getting you moved enough or angry enough to demand change and Jay points that out daily.
Jay backed Mitt Romney like I backed Joe Biden. They both dropped out and broke our hearts in doing so. All of our heart went into promoting our individual candidate. They both busted us but the future is bright. America has a better future ahead of us if we all continue the debate of all the issues that matter to us as Americans.
Tomorrow he will either enlighten me or be the cause for an accident on interstate 190 South. Jay Severin is a political guru that sees the mistakes of many of the candidates on both sides and his dislike of Juan McCain as he coined the phrase works for me right now and that is what I like to hear. I’m a blogger, I point the obvious out and this is one pissed off Republican sympathizer against McCain. That I can agree with him on.
