We as voters play along with a strange reality. First I ask: How long has Barack Obama been in the Senate? In all that time, has something as strong as wanted to take Israel off the map ever came up? Now here is the real irony: After know what we know about Obama, why would we let attack after attack, rent space in our heads?
It does not make any sense to have go through this dance of character assassination throughout the whole campaign. What is even more baffling is sometimes it works. Yes, John Kerry would be the first to tell you it worked. Yet,in a surreal fashion after the election, everything returned to prior status. Almost like we were playing a childs game to "throw a lick and make it stick," and when it was over, we went back to our seats and sat down.
Even now, John McCain is still playing the "make it stick game" and not having much luck with it. As a result, the McCain camp is flirting with the most hostile emotion of them all: Hatred. Yes, the number one displaced emotion is the most workable one used by politicians like the Republican brand running for office this year. Talk about shaking hands with the devil, the McCain and Palin team is all up in the devil's house.
So, taking a growing leap forward for the next election, lets check this shit at the very beginning of the campaign so we can deal with issues and how candidates will handle them. The Republicans can be made to be responsible for their statements as well as their actions. You should not be able to lie and rationalize you way out of the lie with the claim you are exercising your freedom of speech. It is time to grow-up and move pass this ugly practice.

Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran: Not. I could care less what Iran does right now. With all that this country has on its plate right now, why should we be worrying about Iran?
That this should come up right now speaks to denial about the financial crisis we are in. “We are not hurting so bad that we forgot about our problem country Iran.” Its like the United States insist they maintain this superior world police role. It is really silly to give the impression that no matter what we still reserve the right to kick Iran in the ass for not doing what we told them to do.
If I were the leader of Iran, I would be dancing in front of Bushes white house with a mock nuclear plant prop singing: “I got my power; you can’t stop me; I got my power, you can’t stop me.”
How far is Bush willing to take this country down dark roads? Do you think he would risk military strikes on Iran, so gasoline can go through the roof? With amazement, I wonder what have we allowed this man to do to our country. Will we sit by and let him raid our treasury as he walks out of the White House?
There is one more assignment Barack Obama should take on. He needs to stop any further abuse by this president as he walks out of the White House. Someone has got to step up to the plate and read and explain what stunts this president may be carrying out on the American people. Someone has got to look this bastard in the face and say: “I got your number; put that money back and go sit your ass down until it is time for you to go.”
