Rovian lies

Ever since GW Bush started to be elected president, Karl Rove told him that lies work much better than truth and still they have small, tiny legs like “male” Velcro pieces, they seem to stick better in people’s mind. That’s how, to this day, many Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein war a card-carrying member of Al-Qaeda.

Today, lying as one breathes as become Mr. McCain “M.O.” For the attentive observer, it’s pretty clear that our self-professed “maverick” acts as a well trained “mouth-piece” of the Rovian conservative power base and just I hope that more folks will be able to see through his phoniness and his cute lies.

When I listen to the man, I don’t find it to be a maverick (if in fact he ever was one) but a fatigued, old and greedy professional politician who feels he has to be crowned president of the USA at all costs, including lying all the way to the White House.

Out of context

Yesterday, Joe Biden commented that increasing taxes on folks that made more than $250,000 a year was the right thing to do and downright "patriotic." Later on, Sarah Palin took that statement and "twisted it" to say that her counterpart thought that paying more taxes was the patriotic thing to do, thus deriding him in that manner.

This is an excellent example of how sentences can be taken out of context and twisted badly enough when a candidate and her party see that they're not moving ahead and are becoming desperate. Bottom line, the more ideas are manipulated out of their context, the more the electorate sees through that trick and lose confidence…

The greedy "old-guard"

There are many folks who don’t like the theocratic orientation of the Republican Party, but still eat-up the “low-tax” paradigm that remains the perceived hallmark of the GOP.

Thank God for Sarah “Scarecrow” Palin though, the bespectacled governor is spooking these independent and liberal electors, bringing them each day a bit closer to voting for Obama.

It will take some extra time and a few more gaffes from the Republican ticket to turn these folks around, but come November, they’ll finally see through that McCain is the continuation of the Bush-Cheney years and will see the light…

“Regulation” week for McCain

This week the winds are clearly blowing in the direction of regulation, and so is “weathervane” McCain, the usual champion of deregulation. This is a more comfortable position for our "maverick" to assume, as the Wall Street meltdown represents the epitome of capitalism gone wild with any semblance of regulations put aside.

So, at least, no one can blame the old man for not going with the flow and not trying to show that he understands economics. At least he’ll feel better today as he learns that we, the tax payers, will bail out AIG; perhaps this is a measure of Bush-McCain concept of capitalism!

John McCain’s eclipse

Right after the republican convention and over the past weeks, Sarah Palin was able to eclipse her running mate and re-frame the political debate between her and Barack Obama. How was that possible, given her background, lack of experience and extremist views?

Simply because McCain doesn’t measure up; before the convention he was backed into a corner, his campaign going nowhere and had to take a reckless (not maverick) chance by picking Palin at the very last minute.

If anything, Palin temporary “surge” simply demonstrates how poorly and low McCain stands with voters. All things are relative…

GOP lousy paradigm

According to the Republicans, Democrats are “Tax and Spend” folks. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. See what happened under George Bush and see how Wall Street is now caving in under the “Law of Markets” meaning that we’ll all have to pay for that wave of deregulation pushed by the Republican Agenda.

The new paradigm should be “vote Republican, wish you’ll save on taxes now, but be ready to be in total ruins very soon.” That brings me to some other idiotic and Republican mantras: “Drill, baby, drill” which echoes with that one: “Deregulate, John McCain, deregulate!”

Making sure McCain doesn’t win

The specter of a Republican victory at the upcoming presidential election is so frightening that we must do everything we possibly can to prevent it from happening. Obama has a good chance to win, but having him do so with just a thin margin, is not only scary, it’s just irresponsible.

We need to work now at widening the Obama-Biden margin of victory, so it can show our countrymen and the rest of the world that America is serious about change and that only a Democrat landslide will bring up the real change we need to see in order to turn things around…
