I love the Clinton vs. Obama Democratic race

With the victimization mentality of the Democratic party, this should prove to be an interesting campaign. All the political commentary on the MSM is a frequent source of entertainment. There have been discussions about how the fact that Obama is black might influence his campaign in one way or the other - either from people voting FOR him because he is black or from people voting AGAINST him because he is black. There have been some wonderfully revealing soundbites on that particular topic that show just how racist many in the wonderfully “progressive” Democratic party are.

I don’t recall any discussions in the news about how a person’s being white might affect their chances in an election.

The commentary after the New Hampshire primary was particularly humorous. First they had to decide if Hillary’s “human” side (i.e. her “I don’t want us to fall back” stage act) made more people vote for her - or was it because when it came right down to it, some people just couldn’t vote for a black person. Then they ponder whether America is ready for a female president.

Depending on who wins the Democratic nomination, there will be serious charges of either racism or sexism. It’s a lose-lose situation for the dems, and I think it’s hilarious. If Hillary is the nominee, the Obama crowd will claim that America is too racist to elect a black president. If Obama is nominated, the Hillary crowd will claim that America is too sexist to elect a woman president. And if John Edwards is elected, Obama’s and Hillary’s folks will claim that the nation is both sexist and racist.

I know absolutely no one who gives a rat’s ass whether our president is black, white, male or female. What people DO care about is what that person will do as president. Will he/she secure our borders? Will he/she handle the millions of illegal immigrants fairly but without compromise? Will he/she fight the war against Islamic extremism with courage and honor? Will he/she work to minimize people’s dependence on government?

So give it up, folks. If you lose a primary, or the Democratic nomination, or the presidential election, it will be because your beliefs and actions don’t mesh with the beliefs and actions of the majority of Americans. Period. Quit the blame and victim game.

Madeline Albright is not very bright when it comes to global conflict

I just saw this story over at Hot Air. It’s hilarious. Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright makes no sense at all.

Albright’s message centered on the need for equality – not just domestically, but also on a global scale.

“If we were all rich, that would be very nice,” Albright said. “If we were all poor, it would be too bad, but we would be the same. What the problem is now is the poor know what the rich have as a result of information technology and the spread, generally, of knowledge. And, it creates a whole new host of problems in terms of disquiet and anger.”

It’s sad when a supposedly intelligent person can’t put together a coherent few sentences.

Barack Hussein Obama and Abortion

There are many reasons - ethical and well thought-out reasons - that I could never in good conscience vote for any of the Democrats who are currently running for office. Here is just one of the reasons I could never vote for Barack Hussein Obama. From CNSNews:

Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever.

He is so pro-abortion that he refused as an Illinois state senator to support legislation to protect babies who survived late-term abortions because he did not want to concede — as he explained in a cold-blooded speech on the Illinois Senate floor — that these babies, fully outside their mothers’ wombs, with their hearts beating and lungs heaving, were in fact “persons.”

“Persons,” of course, are guaranteed equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment.

I’m as much for equal rights for everyone as anybody could be. In deciding to have an abortion, however, the pregnant woman denies the basic rights of her unborn child. Yes a pregnancy can be quite devastating at times. However, it IS a human being that is killed during an abortion.

I’ve never understood how anyone could deny the person-ness of babies before birth. They have beating hearts when they’re just a few weeks old. I once exercised at a gym where an abortion survivor worked out - preparing for a marathon. Her name is Gianna Jessen, and I wrote about her over two years ago. Read about her experience. Gianna puts a real face to abortion.

If it is wrong to kill a baby after birth, then it is wrong to kill a baby before birth. The Democrats just don’t get it.

"Intensive Purposes" or "Intents and Purposes"

I always get tickled when I hear people say “For all intensive purposes” instead of “for all intents and purposes.” I was reading another blog this morning (I won’t embarrass the writer by telling which one) that used the phrase “intensive purposes.” I’m sorry, but when someone uses language so incorrectly, it’s difficult to pay much attention to the rest of what they’re saying or writing. “Intensive purposes” really doesn’t make sense in that context. Do people even THINK about the meaning of what they’re saying or writing? I dated a guy once who sent out a group email with the phrase “intensive purposes” in it. Although it made me cringe, I never pointed it out.

For what it’s worth, folks, the phrase is “FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES.”
