Want a taste of the future if Barack Obama wins?

Check out what's going on in Missouri.

In an Obama administration who would he be asking that wasn't controlled by Obama?

Family Told Obama NOT To Wear Soldier Son's Bracelet... Where is Media?

Barack Obama played the "me too" game during the Friday debates on September 26 after Senator John McCain mentioned that he was wearing a bracelet with the name of Cpl. Matthew Stanley, a resident of New Hampshire and a soldier that lost his life in Iraq in 2006. Obama said that he too had a bracelet. After fumbling and straining to remember the name, he revealed that his had the name of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek of Merrill, Wisconsin.

Shockingly, however, Madison resident Brian Jopek, the father of Ryan Jopek, the young soldier who tragically lost his life to a roadside bomb in 2006, recently said on a Wisconsin Public Radio show that his family had asked Barack Obama to stop wearing the bracelet with his son's name on it. Yet Obama continues to do so despite the wishes of the family. (click link to read the rest of the story)

Obamatactics NOT working...

As this financial fiasco is unfolding Obama is looking more and more like a selfish little child who doesn't understand how the adults work on the big issues.

His bully-boy friends are going on television trying to stand up for their leader but it is failing.

Americans want decisive action and they want someone who's willing to stand up for us and fight. We want a leader.

Obama looks like a politician. He looks scared when he's talking about this issue and I think it's because he knows he took the wrong tact on it. He couldn't get his ego out of the way long enough to realize he would have looked stronger to follow on this issue and get his butt to Washington without having to be summoned.

I heard one of his bully-boy supporters whining yesterday that John McCain really hadn't suspended his campaign because some commercials were still running and that mean old Sarah Palin was still campaigning. John McCain lied he said.

McCain pulled all of his ads that could be pulled and I understand there were two, yes two whole ads in the entire country, that couldn't be pulled.

All of a sudden Sarah Palin going to an event is something the Obama campaign wants to acknowledge? Now she matters when they think they need her to prove a point.

News flash, Sarah Palin isn't a Senator and she's not John McCain. John McCain suspended his campaign not her campaign. Yes, she's part of his campaign, but she had events and interviews scheduled and she is not an integral part (yet!) of what's going on in Washington.

Wouldn't that be something if Sarah Palin flew to Washington and sweet talked everyone into an agreement? I'd love to hear her talk about what should be done. I bet she'd have some common sense thoughts on this debacle.

McCain is back up in the polls because he has shown true leadership and has shown that the American people are truly more important than even his own personal campaigning. He's willing to put it all on the line for us and despite the image Obamatactites are trying to promote, the American people know he's being sincere and real.

Obamatactics -50
John McCain +100

Joe Biden in Cincinnati on Afghanistan

Fox News aired Joe Biden's speech this morning in Cincinnati. I listened to part of it and would have listened to all of it, but I do have to work!

I'll see if I can find a transcript to share, but I imagine you'll go to sleep long before finishing it! It was way to long for anyone but a die-hard political wonk, probably because he's not the most entertaining speaker when he's "contained"!

While I listened he was talking about Afghanistan. He slammed John McCain and talked about how we should have been focusing on Afghanistan, etc., etc. Same old, same old, packaged in some new wrapping paper I haven't heard before.

In the past few days I've heard and read some rumblings from former CIA and others about an "October surprise" by terrorists. Probably because that possibility has been slithering around my mind, it seemed to me that Biden was setting the table for just such an action.

I'm NOT saying he was encouraging it by any means. What I mean is he was setting the table for Barack Obama to be able to say "I told you so" if it happened. Something along the lines of, "If we'd listened to Obama's in his great wisdom we would have been focusing on Afghanistan and the true culprits rather than wandering in the Iraq wilderness."

I certainly hope and pray we don't experience another attack. If we are attacked, God forbid, then I hope the American people have the intelligence to put someone like John McCain in office to handle the future. In this political war there's enough on both sides of the aisle which makes it easy in hind-sight to point a finger of blame.

I'd guess that if we'd focused on Afghanistan then Iraq would be where they were holed up. I also believe if it were possible to ferret out all the terrorists we'd be doing it full speed. We're doing pretty darn good considering how the President has been hampered by Democrats who simply don't want him to win at anything.

Backtracking to the original thoughts that led me to write a blog, I had to wonder as I listened to Joe Biden whether he had access to some intelligence that indicated an attack was a strong probability. Call me paranoid, call me crazy, but the thought did keep surfacing as I took my break and listened to Biden.

I'm curious to see if John McCain is going to come out with some similar talking points.

I haven't found a transcript of Biden's speech yet, but here's a few stories about the talk:

Biden Links Future Terrorism to McCain’s Failures
By Ari Melber 9/24/08 11:43 AM
Sen. Barack Obama has only one event today, a rally in Dunedin, Florida, and the rest of his schedule is cleared for debate prep. His campaign, however, is not taking a day off from general election combat. Today Sen. Joe Biden is thrashing Republicans in a Cincinnati national security address.
With the first debate on foreign policy set for Friday, Biden is framing his side’s security argument. Leaning into the buzz saw of terror politics, Biden says another terror attack in the U.S. will be exported from a region where “Bush/McCain” security policy failed:

Biden says McCain often wrong on national security
By DAN SEWELL – 58 minutes ago
CINCINNATI (AP) — Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday questioned John McCain's judgment to be commander in chief, arguing that the Republican presidential candidate would keep digging the United States into a hole of isolation and insecurity.
"Our country is less secure and more isolated than it has been at any time in recent history," Biden said in a speech to supporters. "This administration has dug America into a very deep hole around the world at a time our leadership is needed to meet the challenges of the 21st century."

More on Obama ditching Biden for Hillary

JEM left a comment on my prior post and mentioned Obama's ego not being able to take having Hillary on the ticket. Great thought and probably right on the money. It struck me when thinking about it further that chances are Obama is scared to have her on the ticket, too. She would run circles around him and undermine him every chance she was given. He'd have an ulcer before he was officially sworn in! I've heard, and who knows how much of what we hear way down here on the outer rungs is accurate, that Obama's wife steams whenever she hears Hillary's name. Obama would be surrounded by strong women and his life would be miserable!!!

I find it funny on some level that so much of what Hillary said about Obama is TRUE! She put a lot of information out there and for whatever reason the Dems chose to follow Obama. It gives some credence to the theory that things are pre-ordained in the political arena by the movers and shakers behind the scene.

Our VP candidate has ten times the experience as their primary candidate!

It would shake things up if Obama got desperate enough to pull in Hillary and would say a lot about his strength (weakness) as a leader. I'd be all over him on his judgement! He had the opportunity to have Hillary on the ticket and he chose to ignore millions of votes for personal reasons and sensibilities, or maybe just because his wife was jealous of her pretty (gag) pant suits.

In the past many of our Presidents have chosen Vice Presidents they didn't like simply because it would help to get them elected. Either JEM is right and Obama has an ego that wouldn't allow him to give partial credit to someone else for his win or he is dumb. Or maybe both.

What do you think? Any possibility this is based on a glimmer of truth?

I rec'd the email below this morning. It's probably just one of those things that gets started with no basis in fact. A lot of times I've found that people speculate as if something were a fact just so they are able to say they knew it first if it ever happens. If it doesn't happen they can say their source was wrong (if anyone remembers they're the one who got it started).

I think there's a lot of Democrats who are hoping this one is at least partially true:

HEY YOU This is the whisper in the wind. This came from Faith in Iowa.

On or about October 5th, Biden will excuse himself from the ticket, citing health problems, and he will be replaced by Hillary. This is timed to
occur after the VP debate on 10/2.

There have been talks all weekend about how to proceed with this info.

Generally, the feeling is that we should all go ahead and get it out there to as many blog sites and personal email lists as is possible. I have already seen a few short blurbs about this - the 'health problem' cited in those articles was aneurysm.

Probably many of you have heard the same rumblings.

However, at this point, with this inside info from the DNC, it looks like this Obama strategy will be a go.

Therefore, it seems that the best strategy is to get out in front of this Obama maneuver, spell it out in detail, and thereby expose it for the grand manipulation that it is.

So, let's start mixing this one up and cut the Obamites off at the pass - send.
An aneurysm? That sounds rather dire to me and rather hard to predict or fake. I don't have time today to go out and read around about this and it does sound like another off-beat conspiracy theory type thing, which probably has some of you wondering why in the world I'm even putting it out here for discussion! This blog is about Obamatactics and it's a purported tactic no matter how wild!
