Hey JD:

Have not posted in awhile...glad to see you're still at it.

Ann can sum things up pretty well...though she can be a tad "mean." I agree with Ann (and you) who do you like in this race and why?


Your conscience :-)

Glad to hear from you, C. On Ann, though, if telling it like it is, is “mean”, I guess I have room in my heart for mean people. At least I don’t have to second guess where she’s coming from.

On whom I support: Sadly, I do not have a horse in this race. It’s an empty feeling to a lot of us; that we can’t get behind a candidate with any conviction.

What a pitiful field of contestants, don’t you think? On the Republican side conservatives can’t find a conservative.

Many will argue that Ron Paul is the most conservative, but is he a real conservative. He’s a Constitutionalist, no doubt, but with an alarmingly uncomfortable lack of foreign policy to offer. His pretense that we shouldn’t have sent our military abroad in the first place is empty rhetoric because the reality is we have two theatres engaged in the hot war on terror and fundamentalist Islam. He also wants to go back to the gold standard. It’s a bit late to put that genie back in the bottle. Not to mention his isolationist and protectionist bents.

Issues like these keep Paul at the bottom of the pack and absolutely unelectable. The balance of the Republican field is moderate to liberal. This will ultimately cause a Republican loss in November.

On the Democrat side, we have an African-American and a woman. That’s it! Not two qualified, upright and honest, well-intended citizens, just an African-American and a woman; a combination that makes the left feel all warm, fuzzy and righteous; but blinds them.

So what to do. Sit it out? I’m not capable. I will follow John McCain’s lovely mother’s advice, hold my nose and tender a vote against Hillary.


If anyone out there would like to comment on what's left of the candidate field, I would love to hear your opinions and post them as well. Just respond in the usual way and I'll post your comments prominently. JD.

I wanted to toss my cookies as I happened upon Fox News while channel surfing Sunday and caught them asking; “Is Barack Obama the heir apparent to Camelot?” What??!!??! The F@&#% did I just hear???!

Is BO the next JFK? They continued to ask people in the street hanging outside and peering into the studio windows for lack of a job…or a life?

Seems Carolyn Kennedy had just endorsed Obama with a statement comparing him to her father. It just doesn’t take much to get our lazy-ass press corps lathered up!

Which JFK is the press trying to compare Obama to? Is it the drug addicted, philandering, mob-affiliated, election fixing, string puppet-to-his-dad JFK, or is it the tax cutting, strong-foreign-policy-wielding, defense spending, Commie-fighting, war hero JFK?

I’m sure BO doesn’t want to be compared to the former, but he is the antithesis to the latter version.
