What the Huck?
At the risk of sounding "intolerant," what is wrong with the evangelicals? Do they really subscribe to Huckabee's populist class warfare crap? Are they really just not as conservative - in a true well-rounded more-than-social-issues sense - as we always thought they were? Are they really discounting Romney because he's "a rich guy" who's anti-abortion stance is too recent for their tastes?
A more cynical observer might conclude they just refuse to give any consideration to a Mormon...
Like I Said, A Couple Of Posts Down
The problem inherent in backing one political party over another is obvious. The Republicans had this problem in 2000. many of them, unhappy with their candidate, simply held their noses and voted for him anyway, because in their mind, the alternative was worse. And so, vote fraud notwithstanding, they elected what has come to be known as the worst presidency in the history of the US. Of course, some of them, following a false flag "terror" attack on our country, were sucked in and began defending his actions, no matter how morally wrong or unconstitutional. They had to because he was their man.
When I started blogging, they were all over the net, responding to any criticisms with out logic, with out reason, with out sanity. Slowly, they began to see we were right. They ran to the comfort of their like minded set, grumbling about the "wing-nuts", but less and less, defending the presidency they helped wrought on this country.
And now, history is repeating itself, only this time, it's the Democrats. many of them have said they wil hold their noses and vote for a candidate who refuses to commit to a pledge to renew the Constitution. A simple pledge:
"We are Americans, and in our America we do not torture, we do not imprison people without charge or legal remedy, we do not tap people's phones and emails without a court order, and above all we do not give any President unchecked power. I pledge to fight to protect and defend the Constitution from attack by any President."
Every other Democratic candidate has signed it, save one. Would you?
No - I wouldn't sign that and would call out any one who would as a demagogue... and a fool.
I also reject the notion that this has been the "worst presidency in history," or that there has been anything false about the terror threat that face even today.
I have many problems with the President's actions (and inactions) over the course of his two terms - but let me make this perfectly clear - I would happily vote for him a third time before voting for four of the remaining five major candidates.
Bush <> worst president. Just in our lifetimes - look at Carter.Post a Comment
Your characterization of "following a false flag "terror" attack on our country is...I don't know how else to say it....dumb. 9/11, embassies in Africa, USS Cole, first WTC bombing, etc, etc.
I wouldnn't sign that pledge. And ask any Democrat who signed it if they will defend the 2nd amendment.
