Fearing the Campaign

June 6, 2008 | By | 4 Replies More

I was reading my daily dose of blood pressure spike (creationism news) when I found this tidbit on TheConservativeVoice.com:

It is my strongly held belief as a conservative, pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-family, pro-creationism vs Darwinian Evolution believer that there is no way in Gods green earth that that old white guy, who would make history as the oldest first term President if he proves me wrong, can beat the young, inexperienced, eloquent and charismatic black man named Barrack Obama if his life depended on it, and it may because 72 year olds drop dead everyday of much less rigorous stress than running for President.

I’ve said before on this forum that it seemed that the Republicans felt that they had a chance against Hillary, but feared to run against Obama.

He continues:

African Americans who do not care about his socialist, anti-baby, pro-Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender agenda will come out with great hope and pride for the first African American who has aspired to become the most powerful man in the world. And, if not for my social and religious convictions, I would not blame them one bit for voting for one of their own. America could withstand eight years of Bill Clinton and we can withstand four of Barrack Obama.

Personally, I think we could withstand a term or two of return to fiscal responsibility, getting the government back out of the bedroom, and removing White House obstruction to sciences.

Can We? Yes we can!

    So. . .Republicans might not vote for McCain because he might drop dead in office? Wow, he'd better choose his running mate very carefully! It'll have to be someone who can switch from the straight talk express to standing firm on the party platform just as he did, only younger, I guess.

    Then again, this guy doesn't seem to know much about Obama's "agenda", so it probably doesn't matter what McCain's VP's agenda is, either, as long as he's not on death's door.

  2. What such folks really fear is that a majority of the people in this country would approve someone like Obama—and that the right of right, flat-earth-type thinking they represent is a shrinking minority.

    Obviously, Mr Bold Evangelical (the author of the editorial) has been influenced by the exact mentality of which he accuses Obama's supports.

    Specifically, only searching for news and opinions that support what one already firmly believes in.

    Everyone shoul checkout the Senators websites

    and

    and decide for themselves

    Now that Obama is the heir apparent, I'm very curious to see where the equity & commodity markets will go in the next six months. On the one hand, Bush & the incumbents in Congress will try very, very hard to prevent the economy from imploding before the election — indeed, historically, the market tends to do very well in the six months before a major election. On the other hand, Obama's policy of ending the Iraq occupation will likely worsen the instability in the oil commodity market, which could cause serious negative ripples in equities. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
