You Want Change?


George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.

A little over a year and a half ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2-1/2 year high;

2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;

3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

4) The DOW JONES hit a record high -- 14,000+

5) American's were buying new cars, taking cruises and vacations overseas, living large!

But American's wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress & yep -- we got 'CHANGE' all right!

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted;

2) Gasoline is now over $3.75 a gallon & climbing;

3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);

4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 trillion dollars & prices are still dropping;

5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

6) THE DOW is probing another low ~11,300 -- $2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS, BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS INVESTMENT PORTFOLIOS!

YEP, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE! AND WE GOT IT! A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS, NANCY PELOSI. HARRY REID.

Now the Democrats' candidate for president -- claims he's gonna really give us change! Just how much more 'change' do you think you can stand?

There's a silver lining edging the dark cloud of Countrywide, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, and the U.S. Congress bailout.

Our inept politicians are finally forced to do something to aid individual acccounts and small business.

They are talking about "raising the cap" on FDIC Insurance from
$100 M to $250,000. Everone benefits - How about that!

Greycrow sez,

Sorry, the only reason dubya is president is because of his father.
Nepotism!

Bailout/Rescue Bill, call it what you will; the Senate & House will pass it, and Prez Bush will sign it; Good.
>>
Now, which candidate has the courage to address this issue squarely, without the hot-air polemics?

a) SPECIFICALLY, How Do We Achieve Energy Independence from OPEC... Starting Now?

b) Specifically, Nuclear, Drill Now, Natural Gas (?) or, wait for wind, solar, bio-fuels, and Hydrogen Fuel Cells for 20 years?
>>
We Would All appreciate an answer
from Senators McCain & Obama to the above questions BEFORE NOV 4TH. reb

I truly believe the American public is "finally" fed up with the CLOWNS IN THE CONGRESS. I lost faith in these arrogant panjandrum years ago.

They created this mess (as they have others), and now, as usual, the American taxpayers must foot the bill for their recklessness.

Neither of these parties represents the American public any longer. We need a new party-one that has solutions.

IMPEACH THE CONGRESS

Can't you ever blame anything right of center? I would love to see it.

You betcha, Anon!

About those Iranian Nukes; I recall this George Bush quote: "Not On My Watch!" Well George, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is still enriching U-235 in well-marked underground labs, is still threatening to wipe 6 million Israeli "Off The Map". Or, should the next administration wait for "dirty bombs" to be smuggled across our wide-open borders, and into high-density cities?

Also, Dubya...why not sign a presidential pardon for your two
border guards falsely imprisoned in that federal lock-up!

Now, just a little courage from You, Mister Anonymous, with a first name & town ? reb

The Nation Breathlessly Waits for crusty old debate-master Joe Biden to give Alaska's Gov Sarah Palin a public thumping on national Tv...

Governor Sarah Palin must ask Senator Biden, the Democratic "Foreign Affairs Expert", to clearly identify our International Enemy as the Ancient Kill-culture that flies planes into buildings, straps bombs on their women & kids, buries young girls hip-deep and Stones Them To Death for perceived "sins", cuts off heads & hands in Saudi Arabia on "holy" fridays, sets off bombs in world capitals like Madrid, Bombay, London, and murders 3000 Americans in N.Y City on 9/11.

We beat Sen John Kerry & Sen John Edwards in 2004 with a 'swift-boat truth squad'. Remember those two clowns? Born-losers! Hot-Air Bags!
That campaign cost George Soros 27 million bucks, cry me a river.

Remember George Soros N.Y. Times full-page ad last Sept 10th, and signed MoveOnDotOrg? General BeTrayUs..."Cooking the books for the White House". (I have several copies).

Joe knows all about "International Affairs" and the nuke ambitions of Iran's Grand Ayatollah Khameinei, and his ugly little Nazi-Dwarf, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's threats to dominate MiddleEast Sunni/OPEC Oil (and why Sen. Biden will dare not mention it on television). So, You tell 'em, Sarah...Give 'em Hell!

Joe Biden will more likely stick with "Bush failed policy in Iraq, and "Bush Failed Policy in Economics" blah, blah, blah, and he dare not bring up the Failed Reid/Pelosi/Dodd/ or Barney Franks' Failed Two-Year Control of the Senate & House, and completely ignoring the Countrywide, Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Meltdown (where Senators Chris Dodd & Barach Obama accepted "contributions" from those crooked CEO's.

Ask Joe Biden why, he is not at the Top of the Ticket? Or, a real American like General Colin Powell is not his running mate, if we need a black president right now?
General Powell is a Real Man.

Or, Why George Soros dumped Hillary Clinton and chose to Endorse Chicago Junior Senator Obama as his unworthy candidate, and out-spends the GOP Four-to-One in the Key States? Money talks, so it's gonna be close.

These are questions that Joe Biden
cannot answer, will not answer.

Now's your chance, Sarah, Tell 'em!

The Only "Change" we need is a change in Democratic Leadership! We'll hold our noses...until the
Donkey party gets a Diaper Change!

Don't let that old fox out-slick you, the people are listening!

Joe Biden will not mention the 30 year Moratoriums on Not allowing "Our Big Oil" to Drill Now-Pay Less, Build Nuclear Power Generation Now, Build New Oil Refineries Now, and face the fact that we need a Bi-Partisan Effort to focus on ENERGY INDEPENDENCE NOW. Not later, for a 'magic pill' in your gas tank. That's more Hum-bug!

If T. Boone Pickens wants to build wind machines, fine (It's his money).

Biden won't bring it up, So, Sarah Palin Must! You go girl! Just be yourself, tell 'em the truth! Thus, you will set the stage for a real man to win this vital election on Nov 4th.

That's my opinion, what's yours? reb

The Big Debate, Who Scored BigTime?

Well, it was a 3 Set, 30 minute (each set) Match. Biden, the grey fox versus the Lady Governor from the wild north.

Sen Biden performed fairly well, as expected, and Sarah Palin looked relaxed, and in full command of relevant issues at home and abroad...Surprise!

Sarah Palin kept hammering Energy Independence and our future in all three sets. Biden looked backward at our mistakes.

Not enough time spent of Oil Producing Exporting Companies OPEC,
and the Insane Leadership that is responsible for bombed embassies and capital cities around the world, and the suicidal nature of a good portion of that muslim culture. On that culture, Dead Silence. Biden spoke briefly of Bosnia & Hamas! Nothing about 9/11.

Conclusion: Game, Set, Match...
Sarah Palin, without a doubt.

One more month; watch the polls.

What's with the anti-islamic ranting Reb? Have you ever met a moslem? I have met many from all over Europe as well as the Mddle East, Asia and Africa. ALL OF THEM were polite, decent people. Sectarian.

Winfred Mann said...

Palin shocked Biden; you could tell that from the dumb expressions Slow Joe put on his face from time to time. He smiles well though.

I think she won. But I am biased. At worst, she held her own against a long time DC insider.

I find it outrageous that a person like Sarah Palin, who has 5 children, made her CHOICE of LIFE for her Down Syndrome child, has faith, and made it in a "man's world" (I know, I once lived there.), is called extremist by the "wild-eyed" wonders at now et al.

SNAKE HUNTERS said...

Mr Graycrow, I have little doubt that you have 'met many muslims' in Europe, the Middle East, Asia & Africa, in brief social encounters, and I have no doubt that many were polite & decent.

You must convince me that you have met with the Grand Ayatollahs, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, or any of the Saudi Royals, and that's where you'll find the murderous hearts and suicidal mania that is in evidence around the world.

To suggest that I am intolerant of
"muslims" is a gross over-simplification. I am merely a student of Religious History, and the Evolution of Written Law.

At various times I've been called
a "racist" a "bigot" and worse. I choose to ignore them, and to forgive their Ignor-ance.

I would offer some tantalizing suggestions if you are willing to explore them with me. Cordially,

reb

My blogger friend Winfred Mann sez
"Impeach The Congress!" He's spittin' mad, and so am I.

I would add that we should BEGIN with the people that took money (contributions) from Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, like Sen Chris Dodd & Congressman Barney Frank, then go after ANY Republicans that accepted
dirty money from these crooks!

Nov 4th Is House-Cleaning Day! We must then Go West to Nevada, and scalp that little twit Sen Harry Reid! I Recall his "The War In Iraq Is Lost!" Next, we move on to California where we can dethrone that toothy, worthless House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. She recently said "Failed Bush Economic Policy"...blah, blah, blah. (Same tired old Party-line)
Blame Bush for the 700 Billion-Dollar Taxpayer Bailout Plan. Yeah.
She's been reading MoveOn Trash & The New York Times again, and watching Olbermann on MSNBC.

There are plenty of sleazy lizards out there in both parties, and any that are up for re-election this November, our investigative journalists must expose them now...so voters can boot 'em out, and give the next fellow a chance to serve this nation with honor!

CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN, DAMN IT! reb

I just saw a picture of Barach Obama smoking a cigarette. I didn't know he smokes. But the comment was hilarious!

DEMOCRATS FAILED POLICY...

Once Our Congress Approves A Military Committment Of Troops To A Battle Zone, It Defies All Logic To Insist That Washington D.C. Remain In Control Of Any War Zone.

We Made That Mistake in VIETNAM!

Pres Lyndon Baines Johnson Allowed
Robert S. McNamara To Usurp Our Field General Decisions In That Ten-Year "No-Win War", And 58,000 Fine Troops Died Needlessly! A Bloody Quagmire.

Now, Sen Joseph Biden & OBAMA want to establish "Time-Lines" and "Redeploy" Our Forces In Iraq & In Afganistan!

Gov Sarah Palin Is Correct. It's a
White Flag Of Surrender, Joe! Let General David Petraeus Make Those
Critical Command Decisions, And Keep Hot-Air Partisan Politics Off Of The Battlefields! reb

Winfred Mann said...

The Democrats' position on, and understanding of the GWOT is greatly flawed. Either they do not understand the issue, or they are using it for political expediency.

If it's the first, shame on them.

If it's the second, they do not belong in office.

Tom the Redhunter said...

Ralph said "At various times I've been called a "racist" a "bigot" and worse."

Get used to it. If Obama loses we'll be told it's because of racism, and if he wins much of the opposition to him will be said to be "lingering racism" or some such."

graycrow said "What's with the anti-islamic ranting Reb? Have you ever met a moslem? I have met many from all over Europe as well as the Mddle East, Asia and Africa. ALL OF THEM were polite, decent people. Sectarian."

I believe you, but you're missing the point. Islamic thought is dominated by Salafists and other branches of Islamic radicalism. Moderates and/or reformers dare not raise their heads, and they usually lose in the debates. Ibn Taymiya's takfiri thinking is dominant among the Islamic scholars who control the discussions.

See various dispatches at MEMRI among other places. See Melainie Phillips "Londonistan" or Bruce Bawer's "While Europe Slept" or about a dozen other works.

Lastly, did you question them on their feelings toward Fatah or Hamas or Sharia? Surveys of Muslims, especially in Europe, show that once you get beneath the surface you see some disturbing opinions.

Tom - I am sure moderate muslins feel the same about christain fundamentalists, and I am writing as a committed christian.
