What Is Up With This?
I have two observations about this picture. First, what is up with this podium sign? The Office of the President Elect? You’re kidding me, right? I don’t recall ever seeing a President-Elect of the United States of America with a podium sign meant to make him look Presidential. But what else can we expect of someone who had his own Presidential-style seal made to be | Read More »
Thank You, John McCain!
The 2008 Presidential election is behind us, but the repercussions of the vote are yet to begin. Whether you supported Barack Obama, John McCain, or one of the many third party candidates (or no one at all — and shame on you if that’s the case), we all have to live with the repercussions of this week’s election.
My Predictions for the Next Four Years
Should Barack Obama fulfill four years as President of the United States, I believe we’re going to see some interesting and some very troubling things throughout his Presidency. These are my predictions:
Vote With Your Mind…
Indiana polls opened at 6:00 this morning, and I headed out the door at 6:10 to go cast my ballot. I arrived at the polling location just three minutes later (it’s just around the corner), and had to park at the Doctor’s office across the street because the school parking lot was full and cars were already lined up along the street. I crossed the | Read More »
Faith of My Fathers by Senator John McCain
It has become commonplace for Presidential (and, yes, Vice Presidential) candidates to have a published book in the bookstores at some point in the campaign for the Oval Office. Barack Obama has two memoirs published, Senator McCain has three books out, Joe Biden has his book out, and even Governor Palin has at least two books out about her (though, admittedly, not written by her). | Read More »
The Crumbling of An American General
As a United States Army veteran who served during the first Gulf War, when General Colin Powell served as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I find myself today extremely disappointed not only with his endorsement of Barack Obama for President of the United States, but mostly with many of the comments the former Secretary of State and life-long Republican made while announcing | Read More »
America Needs A Hero
Throughout this campaign, we see people on television every day defending the character of the Democrat candidate. No one has had to stand up in defense of Senator McCain’s character, because Senator McCain’s character defends itself! This man is one of the greatest heroes in our country today. I can’t imagine a person more qualified — in every way — to lead this country into | Read More »
Senator McCain’s Homeownership Resurgence Plan
Senator McCain sent an email out to supporters describing in more detail the Homeownership Resurgence Plan he alluded to during this week’s Presidential debate. The plan sounds reasonable. As I understand it, rather than taxpayers footing the bill for failed mortgages, the government would purchase failing, bloated mortgages that are about to be foreclosed. The mortgages would then be rewritten on more affordable terms, and | Read More »
Vice Presidential Debate — In Case You Missed It
The following comments were recorded as I watched the Vice Presidential debate live on Fox News. My comments on the debate as a whole follow at the end.
A Call To Arms
I think it goes without saying that Senator McCain took Barack Obama to school last week in the first Presidential debate. I don’t know how anyone who watched the debate could say otherwise. Obama spent more time stammering, interrupting, and turning red than he did actually providing any useful information to the voters. Senator McCain was very articulate and amazingly prepared for someone who was | Read More »
