The Beginning of the End of McCain

I just saw that McCain has conceded Michigan to Obama.  Is that cutting and running?  Is that pulling out the troops before victory can be achieved?  Is it waving the white flag of surrender (in the words of Sarah Palin)?  I don’t know.  🙂 

But I would be pissed if I were a Republican living in Michigan.  And this is the beginning of the end for McCain.  He is behind in the polls, primarily because he is Bush II (or would that be Bush III?).  The economy is so awful and I can’t believe that people would even think about voting Republican this time around.  McCain lost the debate.  Palin lost the debate.  These people can’t lead.  The American people can now see that.  And if you didn’t see it, look at the poll numbers that CNN took:

Only 26 percent of those surveyed said that Palin was more intelligent in the debate, compared with 57 percent who chose Biden, according to the poll of 611 adult Americans who tuned in to watch it.

Overall, 51 percent of the debate watchers said that Biden did the best job in the debate, but 36 percent gave the nod to Palin

However, the Alaska governor, who repeatedly sought to emphasize the maverick credentials of the McCain-Palin ticket, overcame expectations, as 84 percent of the debate watchers said she did better than expected.

On this point, Biden, a 35-year veteran of the Senate, was more successful in selling this message. Fifty-three percent of debate watchers said Biden seemed more likely to bring change; 42 percent chose Palin.

Another troubling number for Palin is that only 46 percent of the debate watchers said she was qualified to be president, compared with 87 percent who picked Biden.

(I wonder if that last number is correct–the 87%)

 

And speaking of the economy–I just cannot believe that people had the guts to attach earmarks to the bailout package!  Jesus–couldn’t they at least have the decency (democrats and republicans) to deal with the major issue instead of what they did?  I can’t help but hear the words of McCain when he said that he will stop earmarks when he becomes president and he will make sure we know the name of the person who wants those earmarks.  McCain voted for the bailout package, along with the earmarks.  Will the so-called ‘maverick’ now make sure all of us know who really voted for earmarks?

    Quite frankly I did not see either candidate as winning or losing in this debate, I saw "We The People" as the losers.  The polls are all over the board depending on whos poll or which news agency you look at.  Polls are not a reliable source to base any thing on.  666 people do not a Nation make.  Ooops did I just use 666? 🙂
     
    I wouldn\’t look at the Michigan thing as the beginning of the end of McCain at this point.  While I realize what I am about to say leans to a conspiricay theory notion and I do not fall for to many of these, something has happened that smells to high heaven and has a Karl Rove conservative conspiracy finger prints all over it.  I find the following senario just a little to convienent.
     
    In 2004 terrorisim was the driving political factor.  Instilling people with the fear of another attack was the mantra of the day.  It was rather convienent that just at the time Bush was falling in the polls Ben Laden showed up on our television sets nation wide to re-enforce that fear.
     
    It is odd that just at the time when John McCain started falling in the polls the biggest economic crisis in American history appeared on the scene.  We have just had the biggest redistribution of wealth ever in the history of this country into the hands of one man.  Henery Paulson, we are supposed to be satisfied with the aspect that controls of oversight have been put on it.  The truth is that the Federal Reserve and ceartain Wall Street and Banking interest have made sure that the provision is unenforcable.  I have heard several politicians admit to this fact and saying well after the election it will be corrected. Dont you think after the election is a bit to late? There is something really wrong with this whole deal. This whole thing was rushed by Paulson and Bush and Bush rushed to sign the bill to get the monies moved into Paulson\’s grimy little hands. 
     
    Now to really play conspiracy theorist try this one.  The Federal Reserve has been selling financial institutions that are failing like the largest Bank in the U.S. Washington Mutual to none other than J.P.Morgan-Chase National Bank.  What is the connection to McCain you ask?  Well just read the following quote and you will be able to connect the dots for yourself.
     
    "Every Republican President since 1936 has been nominated by the Chase National Bank."
     
    The Federal Reserve is headed up by a Bush appointee, Chase National Bank is now J.P. Morgan-Chase National Bank.  More than just a coincedence do you not think?
     
    ROFL:  Now you have to admit that is one he_ _ of a conspiracy.  Never let it be said that a good Texan would ever let the facts get in the way of a good story.
     
    Challenge to Cass:
    Who made the following quote? What Country were they speaking of ? And in what year was it said?  Answer correctly and Kevin will win full years supply of Dust Bunnies for his space. No cheating now.
     
    "The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest (country) become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

    Well I finally has to address the subject of Sara Palin on my blog. Didn\’t want to but I didn\’t have much choice—and ten of my live spaces friends dropped me right after the blog went up. Guess they must have been Republicans 🙂
