How Obama Could Get My Vote

Not really, of course. I prefer my Presidential Candidates to be principled.
But now, instead of doing this, what are they calling it now... a pivot?
(That's a nice way of saying flip-flop.)
So instead of "pivoting" on his position on Iraq, wouldn't you respect him more if he would just say, "My stand on 'the surge' was wrong, and I'm glad to admit it. Our brave heros in Iraq have been successful."

I certainly would.

You want a principled candidate?

Er, who are you voting for then? Certainly no mainstream candidates.

You must be new here Garrett.
I'm trying to decide whether to vote for Ronald Reagan, or "None of the Above".
What d'ya think?

couldn't find your email address and I know you monitor your comments and wanted to hear your thoughs on why the taxpayers are now paying for Obama's campaign:

Supposedly fact finding but I think the only fact he's looking for is how many votes he can get.

So I guess McCain can claim that the surge worked but Hussein will always be right about the Iraq war itself. Tactically our military can beat the crap out of anyone. It's our overall strategy that needs to change. Staying in Iraq indefinitely is a bad strategy. Especially when you got the leaders of that country telling us we've overstayed our welcome.

What I'd like to see if we actually leave is an agreement with the Iraqis that is favorable to us economically (OIL!).

What a shame to have gone there for nothing.

What a negative, sad life you must lead, pal.

Rodolfo said...

Lol. Sad indeed.

You couldn't help but respect him more. With the type of backers he has, he wouldn't be allowed to make such a move even if he wanted to.

**As far as Rodolfo goes, I think we all know what his problem is. He certainly does.

Ok, I gave Roldolfo his much needed "attention", so I've done my good deed for the day.

LOL. You guys crack me up. Keep the hits coming! This is how you know the conversation has degenerated. Oh well. Take care folks! May God bless your hearts!

Greybeard said...

Lol.
You're welcome.
