The Grand Old party is in NYC and partying like it is 1799. It is amazing when I hear some convention goers say that they don't agree with the Genghis Khanian platform but they stand by their man W. The man who is running on that same platform and all his lies. Shouldn't we be voting for a president who we can trust and support in all his endeavors? Read Michael Moore's article about the conventioneers.
The latest poll has the race dead even. Wow! As I say elsewhere, there are three distinct groups in this nation. Those that hate W, those that love him, and those who couldn't care less about anything. If W pulls this election out, this third group, who don't vote, will realize their mistake as their sons and daughters are sent to Iraq, Iran, Syria... They will realize that they made a mistake when they find themselves sitting in the unemployment office. They will know they were wrong when a knock comes on the door and a man in a dark suit wants to talk to them about the library books they have nbeen reading or the DVDes they rented from Blockbuster.
Speaking of Iran, I see that W says that war with Iran is not necessary since we are beginning negotiations with the Iranians. He cites that we had years of negotiations with Iraq before we took our action. Isn't that comforting? Or is it just convenient to talk about dimplomacy in an election year. But W, why are we rattling our sabres? Why is YOUR MEDIA painting Iran as the evil empire (they replaced Iraq as the New Darth Vader)? If you pull out a win, will diplomacy suddenly fall apart? Will we find out then that Iran has been backing al-Sadr and the Mahdi Army? Read this article.
Sir Walter Scott wrote: "Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive." I remember thinking about that quote during Nixon's regime. It is even more poignant today. Remember W, you can catch a lot of flies and life in your web, but webs are held together by several single strands. Clip one of those strands and the web loses its tension, flaps in the wind, loses it power, and the spider has to move to another area to try to rebuild. Get ready W to go somewhere else to build a new web. 4 more months for your current web to exist. For many, your web is flapping in the breeze and ready to come down.
