2012 Election Issues That Matter: Life

Political Issues Important, That Matter, 2012 ElectionAs this election draws to a close, and although many have already gone to the polls, I’d like to ponder some of the issues that matter in this election. Some matter more to the general population than others, and we will cover as many as we can between now and November 6. The intent is not so much to compel you to vote for a particular candidate, but to provide some food for thought about the issues and why they are important.  -Ed.

First Presidential Debate: Exercise In Futility, Part 2

This is Part 2 of the analysis of Friday night’s Presidential Debate.  Part 1 was posted on Saturday.

Iran

Lehrer asked for a “reading” of Iran by the candidates.  Are they a threat?  Both candidates made it very clear that nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran was not acceptable.

McCain did a good job of highlighting both the big risk against Israel, and the risk to the entire region if Iran has nuclear weapons.  McCain also pointed out again the need for thoughtfulness in diplomacy when dealing with countries whose leaders are as evil and wicked in their comments against America and her allies, specifically Israel.  He pointedly criticized Obama for making just such comments.  McCain also promoted his “League of Democracies” as a …


First Presidential Debate: Exercise In Futility, Part 1

All I can say is, I was wrong.  Jim Lehrer does want to be the next Tim Russert.

I will say, I did not sense any partisanship on Lehrer’s part, but he sure dug into follow up questions, including a lot quizzical looks in reaction to the answers.  Making matters a bit worse was his oafish attempts at turning the debate into a conversation, almost as if McCain and Obama were seeking marital counselling.  “Say that to Senator McCain”.  “Direct yourself to Senator Obama”.  “Do you agree with Senator Obama?”.  I don’t know if that was part of the original ground rules that was set prior to …


A serious lack of understanding of things military

John Hawkins over at Right Wing News has an interesting interview up with Will Breazeale, who is an Iraqi vet running for Congress. In the interview, Breazeale tells an interesting story regarding Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer;

“I was a protocol officer for a 3 star general on my second deployment to the Middle-East and sure enough, here comes Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid in the door for their briefing before they go to see soldiers. And they got so frustrated from their lack of knowledge of military operations, like the acronyms we use or even what an up armored Humvee was, between level 2 or 3 armor, that they got frustrated, got up in the middle of this briefing with Lt. General Whitcomb, commander

Obama Will Hang Us Out To Die

Those of you that are seriously considering voting for Obama because he’s “more conservative” than McCain, take a look at this and tell me this is what you think we need.  Obama will hand our interests over to foreign nations before protecting our land.

Man, that gives me the chills.
