We just have over two weeks until the election and it seems like Obama only needs to take a couple of knees and run the clock down. One might argue that Obama isn’t taking a knee hut has his first string offense on the field scoring touchdowns with the endorsement of General Powell and his September fundraising haul of $150 million.
I have long thought that our enemies around the world would try to find a way to influence the election so that the next President is less of a lion and more like a lamb. The only thing that I couldn’t figure out is how they accomplish their goal. So sit back and enjoy your Monday Morning Krusty Konspiracy.
Obama’s monthly fundraising totals are outrageous. He has consistently raised more money per month than many candidates for president raise throughout their primary campaigns. Obama should disclose the name and address of every donor to the media to make sure foreign people or Mickey Mouse, or the Dallas Cowboys are not illegally donating to his campaign. We already see the mess that Acorn is in, and it is my beliefs that the Obama finance office is much worse.
It’s too bad the main stream media is so lazy, this is something they should be doing but have refused to do. While we are speaking of the media, I’m sick and tired of people telling me “Don’t count out John McCain.” Look, I’m rooting for the guy, but there is a big difference between his race between Obama and the race between his Republican colleagues.
During the summer and fall of 2007 McCain’s Republican opponents lacked the ability to finish him off. For all you Romney and Huckabee fans upset about McCain being our nominee you can look place blame directly on the shoulders of your candidate. In politics when someone’s down and you smell blood you kill them. Both Huckabee and Romney showed that they didn’t have the killer instinct, so they let McCain regain his footing which the media loved and the rest is history. The problem for McCain is the fact that Obama and the liberals are never going to let up, which you only need to turn on your TV to see proof of.
Other stuff worth mentioning:
Dems get Nasty and Personal
The tone of our state legislative campaigns have taken a turn for the worse. Proof of that is a new ad that Community Organizer, State Representative Elisha Gayman is running against her opponent, Ross Paustian in HD 84.
The add is a one of those positive/negative split adds that starts off positive about Gayman, then turns nasty about her opponent. The ad says, “a judge sentenced Paustian to jail for 60 days for refusing to pay child support. Even though Paustian is a partner in a million dollar farm operation, he refused to support his own family.”
Paustian said at a news conference Sunday, “There was never a time when I didn’t pay child support. I love my children. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them. For Elesha Gayman to suggest otherwise is shameful and an outright lie.”
I have a real problem when politicians feel the need to dredge up family issues to use in their own elections. Paustian’s daughter was at the press conference yesterday standing by her father. This type of politics has no place in Iowa. As for Gayman she attacked Paustian’s family because she had been attacked for voting for gardeners and flower pots at the governor’s mansion. Classy lady…
In an effort to be non-partisan…
Republican State Senator Jim Seymour was arrested in 2002 for soliciting a prostitute. When asked by the Des Moines Register about the incident he said "This happened quite a while ago, and I'm pretty foggy about the details.” While I’m sure I’d try to forget it, its probably something that would be etched into my memory.
Seymour is up for re-election, and is the perfect example of why you should always recruit the good candidates even in districts where you might think you don’t state a chance. Iowa Democrats didn’t recruit a candidate against him….
