McCain Can Pull It Off

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within . . . For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation . . . he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
— Cicero
So Obama says he will change the world? One of those myriad unanswered questions is, If so, will it be for the better or worse?
He vows to create a "civilian national security force" apparently funded to military levels. What is that about? Does he intend to create a new armed militia . . . kinda like Hitler did? Who will fill the ranks? Where will the money come from? What will be the chain of command? Does he intend it to supplement or complement the established military force structure?
He wants to redistribute the wealth by taking from the rich (and almost rich) and giving it to the “disadvantaged” masses. Who decides how much is too much? Who reaps the benefits of others innovation and hard work? Will there be an exodus of business talent, expertise, and jobs?
Polls say it is Obama in a blowout . . . and yet other polls say it is not. Obama leads by 10 points and/or McCain leads by one? Hey, the only poll that really counts is Tuesday Nov. 4.
Obama didn't know his aunt is an illegal alien scofflaw and was shocked and amazed that what his preacher was saying for 20 years is what he was saying for 20 years? He didn't really know Bill Ayers all that well. He was born in Hawaii despite all that Internet noise and annoying inability to silence those wack job critics by just showing them a for-real piece of paper.
Obama claims he did not know his aunt was living in the United States illegally for nearly four years prior to The Associated Press report. Reportedly, the man who would be king last heard from Zeituni Onyango, “who attended his swearing-in ceremony to the U.S. Senate in 2005 two years ago, when she called to say she was in Boston.”
The Associated Press confirmed Onyango's illegal status. It created an annoying diversion for the Obama campaign during the big final push to Election Day and stoked suspicions among supporters of a political motive behind the timing of the leak.
Obama chief strategist David Axelrod said, “I think they are pretty suspicious of things that are dumped in the marketplace 72 hours before a campaign, so I am not concerned about that.”
Asked if he was suggesting political motives from a Republican administration, Axelrod said, “I am not saying anything at this point.”
Wait a minute Dave! If you think the American people are “pretty suspicious of things that are dumped in the marketplace 72 hours before a campaign,” how do you think they will react to having had this kind of stuff kept from them (intentionally?) for two flipping years by co-conspiring political hacks aided and abetted by a complicit media machine?
The mainstream liberal media has enabled an under-vetted, smoke-and-mirrors cipher who has been able to gallop to the brink of the most powerful position in the world. Now that the house of cards trembles they remain diffident to admit that the stunningly attractive date they picked up at closing time may actually be a transvestite with a terminal STS.
There are consequences to what we do and don't do in life. No one is immune. Who would have thunk it that Hillary may actually have done less harm to the republic than Obama?
Sadly, because of the horrific malfeasance of the fourth estate, whatever does or does not happen Tuesday will inevitably result in the glass being half empty . . . not half full.
I still believe that notwithstanding all the postulating, extrapolating, and pontificating, McCain could still win in a squeaker. If I am right (and for sure I remain a minority contrarian) race relations will suffer a 40-year space-time continuum brain fart.
