McCAIN-PALIN’S “OPERATION NEGATIVE”

I could not believe it when I heard Sarah Palin pound the point in her stump speech in Colorado, that Obama hung around with “terrorists.” Terrifying, if it were not for the fact that she and her husband have been so closely aligned with the Alaskan Independence Party. Aren’t these the folks who have no use for America and frankly advocate Alaska’s sucession from the Union? She cannot have it both ways. Isn’t it Sarah Palin who cannot figure out where she stands regarding her longtime associate, Senator Ted Stevens? I’ll betcha she is waiting to see how it all plays out, first. Sorry Ted, you just might get fed to the wolves. Governor Sarah Palin is an ambitious, cut-throat politician with a history of becoming friends with a mentor, learning what they know and then being a challenger for their jobs. Many people still think that she is “as dumb as a box of rocks.” But, I think that Senator McCain should probably watch his back.

Her response to the McCain campaign pulling out of Michigan seemed more like an attempt on her part to negotiate her way into a 2012 bid for Presidency, to me.  I did not know that a Vice Presidential nominee would openly question the judgement of the person on the top of the ticket in a matter as serious as this. Perhaps Senator McCain has grown blind from the many winks that Governor Palin drops while speaking. I guarantee you that Governor Palin is getting cozy with as many people in the energy arena as she can (and not for Senator McCain’s benefit.) She is going to get that gas pipeline by hook or by crook. You betcha! Worst case scenario for Governor Palin is that she and Senator McCain fail in their bid for the White House, she returns as governor, with new allies who will help her “energize” the lower forty-eight (via pipeline) while she helps herself become one of the most powerful women in the world.

How can Senator McCain go negative on Senator Obama without any of us remembering the KEATING scandal? I want to make sure that no one forgets his past “evil alliances” while he pounds away at Senator Obama.  Surely, he had to know that the Keating Five scandal is also a question of judgement, honesty, and guilt by association. The desperate McCain campaign will go negative for the remaing thirty-one days of this election cycle, while Rome burns and its citizens expire from smoke inhalation. What about his reckless behavior in the Navy which led to the loss of lives of his fellow military personel? I keep hearing whispers about this. Senator McCain will you put these rumors to rest?

Has Senator McCain been recently re-evaluated for  PTSD? He appears to have a pretty bad case of it from his POW days. What is this unwillingness or inability to look Senator Obama directly in the eye? Is this some behavior that he learned while in captivity, not to look into the eyes of the enemy?  I find it hard to believe; it is just flagrant disrespect. Note to John McCain: Obama is NOT your enemy. You are both fighting to make the SAME COUNTRY a better place, or at least this is what we have been led to believe.  Senator McCain, show Senator Obama the same respect that he shows you. He shakes your hand and looks you in the eye. He addresses you directly. Senator McCain, your manners are intolerable and it sends a very bad message about you…something about “grumpy old men.”

McCAIN: THE PROPHET OF GLOOM

No, this post is not about the Edwards affair. Anyone of character and sensitivity will let the throat-cutters have that one.  Although, I do sometimes wonder whatever happened to the pretty, blonde lobbyist that Senator John McCain has been linked with? I am posting to talk about these prophetic words from John McCain on August 4th, 2008, …”Russia is regressing…” Hey, wasn’t that just five days ago? Wasn’t the world made aware of a blow-up between Georgia and Russia less than two days ago?  Well, the answer is still oil!! In my last post, I said that it would not surprise me if the Republicans manipulated a war to put McCain over. And so it is… Georgia (backed by U.S. muscle -also is an exit way for oil by-passing Iran) is in the middle of fresh declaration of WAR!!!  Magic McCain swung into full military command- an immediate meeting of the U.N Security council, blah, blah, blah-is there anything more frightening to the elderly?  Did it ever occur to anyone that McCain had the heads up? I mean, he is in the tank for the administration, no matter what “Maverick” rumors are circulated.  I was wrong. I thought that it would be an a direct Iran affair, not an indirect Iran affair. John McCain is obtuse. In no way could he have  forseen anything but a few well deserved and well needed snoozes. This whole matter reeks of meddling. Georgia is crying for the U.S. to stand with them while Putin and Bush stroll side by side in Beijing? What’s wrong with this picture?
