Vandals Attack McCain Supporters’ Homes in Northern VA

Just further proof that partisan politics has gotten way out of hand…  Redstate.com has posted some photos of a vandal attack on the homes of McCain supporters in Northern Virginia.  It’s a shame that one cannot express their political views without risk to their property or even personal safety.

The photos are marked copyrighted, so I’m only going to post the link.  Those who might take offense at foul language might not want to click, the vandals were obviously trying to be vile.  Pictures are here on flickr.

Palin Hanging by a Noose in Southern California

First we had Obama hanging by a noose.  Now someone thought it might be appropriate to hang Palin by a noose.  Either way it’s a symbol of outright hatred and total disrespect.  In my opinion, it is inappropriate either way.  When one cannot fight a political opponent with words and ideas, they resort to symbols such as this.  It only weakens your position and it makes you look foolish.

CNN wrote an article back in November of 2007, after the Jena, Louisiana noose incident.  They point out how such symbols are designed to incite hatred.  I don’t care if it is Halloween, it was wrong when it was done to Obama, and it is wrong in this situation as well.  What ever happened to decent political discourse?  Politics has devolved into insults and threats.  We really need to work on making America a better place, not ripping it apart.

Obama: Constitution Reflects Fundamental Flaw of America, Wealth Should be Redistributed

This is from a 2001 Chicago Public Radio interview.  Obama is saying outright that wealth should be redistributed.  Unfortunately, the more and more I hear from former interviews, the more I think he’s more of a Socialist than a Democrat (please realize that I’m saying that as a definition of his views, not an inflammatory slur statement).

I’m sorry, but redistribution of wealth should not be a function of a Capitalist country.  Obama’s demeanor in the interview is very matter-of-fact.  He has no doubt in his voice that redistribution of wealth should be done.  I must admit that this is even more frightening than his comments to Joe the Plumber.

On the plus side, he did say that such changes should be made legislatively and not through the courts.  Not very reassuring to me, but at least it’s something positive.

Tough Biden Interview Results in Blacklist by Obama Campaign

Barbara West of WFTV in Orlando gave a tough interview to Biden yesterday.  She brought up ACORN, Obama’s “spread the wealth” comment, and Biden’s promise that Obama would be challenged by a crisis that would be generated specifically to test Obama early in his Presidency.  West even went so far as to quote Karl Marx, getting a “Are you kidding?” response from Biden.

In response, an interview with Biden’s wife was pulled and the Obama camp sent a letter stating, “This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election.”  Guess they don’t like being asked the questions that many in the public are asking.  Biden certainly did not seem to have clear answers, giving canned answers and attempting to shift the blame to the Bush administration.

My deepest respect to Barbara West and WFTV for asking some real questions to Biden instead of tossing up the feel good softball questions most stations seem to think need to be asked.

Bush Trailed Gore by 11 in October 2000

Gateway Pundit posted up a reminder of the 2000 election.  In October 2000, Bush trailed Gore in the polls, 51-40.  With the polls being all over the place this year, reliability is in question anyhow.  Reagan even trailed Carter in the polls back in 1980.

McCain cannot be written off in this race, and Obama shouldn’t be picking out the curtains for the Oval Office just yet.
