Constructive gadfly

To the disappointment of the Obamacans, it is nevertheless just as well Barack has turned the page to Hillary’s southpaw centrism—and Bill’s for that matter. For had Obama continued the rhetoric in pandering to the non-pragmatic progressives, he would end up in the trash bin of McGovernites.

The country conceivably is ready for change and a Black American not of the color of Wright and Jackson, it is definitely not prepared for the color of Move-on Quixotism.

Actually Obama’s original rhetoric of “post-partisanship”—not unlike Reagan’s roping Democrats and Bush’s preaching “uniter not a divider”—should have been the caveat of adroit, political deception.that cut the nuts off liberal hopes.

The irony here is that though few want to see a Bush third term, many will chance the “change” of a Clinton third term.

Sorry to disappoint you, folks: Obama is not on the Islamic ticket.

To judge from his words, can't tell what planet he's on, let alone what ticket.

While you say Hussein is not on the Islamic ticket, he could possibly win the Iranian election with his "soft" on Terrorist" policies.

But they would not 8 years ago. Time heals all wounds (and wounds all heels). If Obama is elected and governs the way he campaigns extemporaneously, many will be looking back at Bush with nostalgic eyes.

IN the forums, you see a hand with the thumb up. You can give anyone (except yourself) karma by clicking it and then giving a reason.

Basically gold stars - for those who need them.

Are you in the forums, or the regular JU? IN the forums, it will not show up on your posts, but on all others - if you are using IE (that is what I am, I am not sure about Mozilla, FIrefox, Netscape, OPera or Safari).
