No End in Sight

No End in Sight
Chronological look at the fiasco in Iraq, especially decisions made in the spring of 2003 - and the backgrounds of those making decisions - immediately following the overthrow of Saddam: no occupation plan, an inadequate team to run the country, insufficient troops to keep order, and three edicts from the White House announced by Bremmer when he took over: no provisional Iraqi government, de-Ba'athification, and disbanding the Iraqi armed services. The film has chapters (from History to Consequences), and the talking heads are reporters, academics, soldiers, military brass, and former Bush-administration officials, including several who were in Baghdad in 2003

Sen. Barack Obama Pledges Space Advocacy

It came to my attention some people in FL are misinformed about this issue so I thought I would clear this up:

TITUSVILLE - Sen. Barack Obama promised not to cut NASA funding and said Saturday at a town hall meeting he will rely on Florida Sen. Bill Nelson and revered astronaut and former Sen. John Glenn to help form his space policy.
"Under my watch, NASA will inspire the world once again and is going to help grow the economy right here in Brevard County," said the presumptive Democratic nominee, speaking to a crowd of 1,400 at Brevard Community College's Titusville campus.

Can you pass the test?

Based on the past two elections and the lies people still believe about Obama. it's quite evident that the masses fail to educate themselves on the candidates' platform or their backgrounds before casting their vote. And it's really sad when the less fortunate blindly vote against who or what would truly represent their own needs. We've seen the results of that ignorance - 8 years of it - so what do you think about voters having to pass a test so we at least know voters are making a somewhat educated choice? Yes, an IQ test to vote. Or are you afraid like I am that it would be rigged, too?

The Rev. Warren Blunder

Well, it seems as if someone took my idea, or part of my idea for a new type forum, and ran with it. OK, I'm joking about credit, I know they don't read my blog because if they did, we'd had McCain center stage in a tested sound proof booth while Obama took his turn.

Unfortunately, it didn't go off without a hitch. As confirmed by the John McCain campaign staff he wasn't in the "cone of silence" as we were assured Saturday night by Rev. Warren. As you may recall "Warren told the audience that McCain was being held in "a cone of silence" so he wouldn't hear the questions, which were similar for both candidates."

And when Andrea '...Mitchell reported that some "Obama people" were suggesting "that McCain may not have been in the cone of silence and may have had some ability to overhear what the questions were to Obama. He seemed so well prepared." the McCain campaigned lashed out. What's interesting, by doing so they admitted that he wasn't in the "cone of silence",
'A McCain aide said that is not the case: "Senator McCain was in a motorcade led by the United States Secret Service and held in a green room with no broadcast feed."'

Well, duh. Thanks for the confirmation of Obama's people and Andrea Mitchell's report.

With radios, sling boxes, blackberries....oh my....are we to believe that nobody let McCain in on any of the questions or how Barack Obama was doing? John McCain was not in the cone of silence, but a motorcade and a green room, so I ask you, why did the McCain campaign complain about a reporter actually reporting the facts, but only to use it in the art of distraction?

If McCain had been where he was supposed to, and followed the rules this wouldn't be an issue would it? Of course the story instead would have been, and should be about his incompetency to answer any of the questions completely, about his sound bite answers, and the use of the quotes from the stump speeches Warren asked neither candidate to use, of which Obama did not, and about the stories McCain tells and apparently embellishes on. Without them I have a feeling John McCain would have been lost.

I pray that people are smart enough to realize they're being played. Sound bites are not what you should be using to make your choice for a President, but detailed answers that really tell you what the candidate believes in, like Barack Obama provided us.

But of course, about 1/2 the country allowed Bush to be in office....twice. I hope you noticed I didn't use the term vote -that's a whole other story that shouldn't have happened. Let's hope you all learned from your last mistakes.

As I say time and time again people, open your minds, pay attention, remember the state of our Nation and do your research before you make your choice this November.

God helps us all.

Straight Talk Express takes a major U-turn and loses their way

New York Times editorial: “Low Road Express”
“Well, that certainly didn’t take long…The candidate [John McCain] who started out talking about high-minded, civil debate has wholeheartedly adopted Mr. Rove’s low-minded and uncivil playbook.”

St. Petersburg Times Editorial: “From ‘Straight Talk’ to Smear Campaign”
“The Straight Talk Express has taken a nasty turn into the gutter. Sen. John McCain has resorted to lies and distortions in what sounds like an increasingly desperate attempt to slow down Sen. Barack Obama by raising questions about his patriotism.

Cincinnati Enquirer: McCain’s Ad, on A “Truthful” Scale From “0” to “10,” Gets A “0.”
“HOW TRUTHFUL? 0 on a scale from 0 (misleading) to 10 (truthful)…The McCain ad’s claim that Obama says ‘he’ll raise taxes on electricity’ is based on an interview Obama gave to a San Antonio newspaper in February in which he said ‘what we ought to tax is a dirty energy like coal, and, to a lesser extent, natural gas.’ According to the Obama campaign, what Obama was referring to in the interview was his proposal for a cap-and-trade mechanism that would set a limit on greenhouse gas emissions, allowing entities to buy and sell rights to emit. If that is the case, McCain is criticizing Obama for a proposal that he, too, supports.”

Annenberg Political Fact Check: McCain Attack That on $32,000 Tax Increase Is “Wrong” And “Not True.”
As noted, “The McCain campaign claims that Obama voted to raise income taxes on individuals who earn as little as $32,000 per year. That’s wrong…[and]…not true.” In fact, as also noted, Barack Obama’s “tax plan would provide a tax cut of $502 for a non-married taxpayer earning $35,000.”
