A friend of mine, on an e-mail list in which I participate, asked us what we thought of the recent GOP presidential candidate debates. I made a snide comment: “There was a debate last night?”
She said that one of those men could be the next the President so I should care.
I don’t and here’s why:
I am not a member of any party so anything having to do with choosing any party ticket is not relevant to me.
My concern is from Labor Day weekend 2008 to November 2008 when the two people we are forced to choose from will be on my ballot and their final messages will be out.
I’m guessing that Hillary and Rudy will be the two evils I will have to choose from when I really want to vote for Obama since I can’t vote for Pete Stark since he is not running.
But, Doug, how do you know it is going to be Senator Clinton and Rudy Giuliani in 2008?
I’ve seen it before. The Democrats seem to let conservative “hit” men and their media lackeys pick their candidate. Back in the 2004 elections, the populist candidate was Howard Dean. He had the buzz and the money. The GOP was scared so they and their media flunkies destroyed him. They got the candidate they wanted in John Kerry.
Basically they want someone to run against who they can smear effectively. They had pretty much nothing on Dean but tons on Kerry.
In recent weeks there have been 3 or 4 books released by conservatives about Senator Clinton. All of them rehash falsehoods from the time her husband was President. The GOP HATE Senator Clinton and they know if she is the Dem nominee they can solidify their base like they did against Kerry in 2004.
Take a look at this article:
Wash. Post review misrepresents, conflates allegations in Clinton books
Until 2008 I really don’t care as it is out of my hands – right now it is all about filling time on the 24 hour news channels, in between stories about missing white women and out of control young Hollywood starlets. It seems they can’t deal with real issues that are happening in the world today that effect real people.
Like the Democrats caving to a President with an approval rating of 28% on the issue of a timetable to withdraw from Iraq.
