The only thing I'd have an issue with is the whole "John McCain is the bush 3rd term." McCain and Bush have clashed many times, McCain has been called a betrayer of the Republicans because he's been so bipartisan, and the two don't even like each other.

Still, I'd prefer President Obama over President McCain.

And am I the only one who feels like Bob Dole deja vu with McCain?

I was thinking something very similar, except I thought it was pretty cool that he could read my thoughts. But then I considered the idea and wondered how much else he knows. ;)

Until recently, when McCain started sucking up. This is why it was presented as, "McCain (who is inexplicably running for Bush's third term)."

I can hardly believe it either, but the fact is, he's pretty-much pledged to stay the Bush course.

Good goin' Wil. If that's sexist, I don't wanna be a feminist.

I've heard her called "America's Ex-Wife". See, her bitterness and hate goes much deeper than that of a scorned girlfriend.

Still not as bitter as Michelle Obama... but it's the "hate" that pushes Hil over the top.
 
2008-05-07 11:33:16 PM  
Fair analogy considering her conduct the last few months...

Well done, Wil!

I must agree that the creation of superdelegates was a terrible idea. I'm not really a big fan of the electoral college, either, but I can live with it for now. It's simply outdated, where the superdelgates are a recent creation. Someone here referred to it as a "modern version of the old-school smoke-filled rooms of power brokers". When Clinton put this into the forefront, and then called Obama an elitist, she lost all of my respect. Absolute hypocracy.

Hopefully she will exit gracefully, not destroy the goodwill of the party (who will work with her as a Senator after this if she blows this election for the Democrats?), and learn something from it. She overreached as a First Lady, and now she is doing it again. Ambition is awesome, but it needs to be tempered with a bit of humility and introspection.

Holy shiat, Wil is in my head. Get him out! I'm sorry for making fun of Wesley!

In all seriousness, your view very strongly parallels mine Wil. 6 months ago, I sort of assumed, like most other people, that Hillary was going to be the nominee, and I had no problem with that. About a month before Iowa, I became convinced that Obama was the better candidate, but I would have still accepted Hillary if that was the majority view. At this point in time, I cannot even fathom supporting Hillary on anything, I will not ever vote for her for anything again, and if Dean lets her steal the nomination, I will write in Barack Obama on my ballot and I will probably refuse to vote Democratic for quite some time. I, and many others, will not vote for that woman who has done nothing but damage since Super Tuesday.
 
2008-05-08 12:34:29 AM  
Yeah, you're not sexist, Wil. A straw what now?

I thought I saw the future in February, but I only scratched the surface... (new window)
 
2008-05-08 12:44:52 AM  
simsite9: Yeah, you're not sexist, Wil.

You can't call everyone a sexist who isn't voting for Hillary. Most people I know would happily vote for a female candidate if she happened to be the best candidate running. Hillary is not the best candidate running in my opinion. That fact does not make me a sexist, it just means Hillary is not the best candidate in my mind and many others.

Calling everyone a who doesn't like her a sexist only reflects much more about you, than the people you call a sexist.

There is nothing in that blog post that hasn't already been said a million times.

I voted yesterday (Obama) and I really do hope things change. I am just already over all the bullshiat. The same things are being reported and being reported and being reported and nothing new is being discussed.

The only thing I'm interested in is when things DO change (not just lip-service) and we somehow get out of this clusterfark of the last eight years.

Have you never heard of a photo-op? You just smile and pretend you REALLY like the person your shaking hands with, *click* and done. You can go on hating each other and everyone else is none-the-wiser.

I watched Captain McCain on "The Daily Show" this evening and though what a nice guy, not someone I'd ever vote for but a charming person. I see Doctor Clinton and all I can think of is, well I won't say it but have you ever cleaned up after a baby with diarrhea?

Perhaps at the shaking hands level. The whole hugging and head-on-Bush's-shoulder seems a bit beyond that.

The number of American presidential candidates varies with the sunspot cycle and the phases of the moon. Being a Republican, I'm backing Hillary Clinton. Because she could lose. The reason is not that she's a woman. The reason is that she's the particular woman who taught the 4th grade class that every man in America wished he were dead in. Hillary Clinton is Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown. Hillary Clinton is "America's ex-wife."

A man can be a Democrat to the core, going into the voting booth to pull the lever with the donkey label no matter what. Then he sees Hillary's name on the ballot. And it all comes back to him ... the first marriage ... the time he came home a little late, it wasn't even midnight, and he'd only had four or five beers, and she threw his bowling ball down the storm sewer.

The Republicans will have a hard time coming up with someone who can't beat Hillary Clinton. But I don't put it past them. You may remember Senator Bob Dole in 1996.

I realize that talking about personalities has a history in political discussions, but I'm still pretty frustrated with the tenor of the discussions surrounding this election. (And yes, I know I should lighten up a bit, but still...)

All due respect to Wheaton (or anybody who puts their opinion out there in the public domain with their own name attached to it - this does take some courage), but my frustration stems from what I see as a tendency to substitute trash talk about the individuals for reasoned discussion of the issues.

Now, I know that the presidential election process can be boiled down to a year-long job interview, but I'd prefer to see the issues be the entry point for learning about the candidates, rather than what they say at the lectern (or what they say while making themselves breakfast).

My two cents.

I still love hearing Democrats saying the same things about the Clintons that Republicans have been saying for years.

Actually, it's quite different what Dems are saying about the Clinton's nowadays.

What Dems say has some substance.

Good one. I can take the hit. I supported her in the beginning.

Do you like hearing that I switched because she campaigns like a low life scum sucking republican?

Here's a story that tells you all you need to know about McCain:

McCain, to this day, is referred to as "breaking with Bush on torture". His break with Bush consisted of making self-serving, grandstanding anti-torture speeches, worked with the Bush Administration to pass a toothless anti-torture law and then shutting up when Bush issued a signing statement claiming he didn't need to obey that law.

http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/01/04/bush_could_bypass_new_to rt ure_ban/


McCain's office did not return calls seeking comment yesterday.

...

The White House tried hard to kill the McCain amendment. Cheney lobbied Congress to exempt the CIA from any interrogation limits, and Bush threatened to veto the bill, arguing that the executive branch has exclusive authority over war policy.

But after veto-proof majorities in both houses of Congress approved it, Bush called a press conference with McCain, praised the measure, and said he would accept it.

Legal specialists said the president's signing statement called into question his comments at the press conference.

''The whole point of the McCain Amendment was to close every loophole," said Marty Lederman, a Georgetown University law professor who served in the Justice Department from 1997 to 2002. ''The president has re-opened the loophole by asserting the constitutional authority to act in violation of the statute where it would assist in the war on terrorism."

Elisa Massimino, Washington director for Human Rights Watch, called Bush's signing statement an ''in-your-face affront" to both McCain and to Congress.


"Keating" McCain does what he needs to do to maintain his image, while actually changing nothing. He's a maverick, alright -- just think of how often a ventriloquist's act consists of chastising and acting unnerved by the dummy's recalcitrance and "maverick" nature.

I haven't voted for a (R) for pres. since Bush I. I simply stated that the same tone of comments about the Clintons are now coming from both sides.
