Oh, what a feast to the senses of Greek proportions when Obama appeared Thursday at his Barackopolis at Rezko, uh, Invesco Field in Denver.
People are all over dial are reviewing the speech, but mainly, it was the same liberal democrat speech I have heard for the past 20 years. At the end, Obama punched it up, and the balloons dropped and the tears flowed.
I'll leave it to others to analyze the fine points, but the big picture is maddening as hell.
If I had a son or daughter, brother or sister in Iraq or Afghanistan, I would be coldly furious with Barack Obama. His posturing that he supported the troops all along, questioning John McCain's position, challenging him about the war, sickens me.
Barack Obama and the left-wing Democrats stood in the way of bringing our troops home - in victory. If we had done what Obama and the Democrats advocated, Iraq today would be run by Al-Qaeda instead of a democratically elected government.
The cut-and-run crowd blocked the the military appropriations bill over and over again, and called the surge a failure; when it is in fact a stunning success. Obama supporters called our troops murderers, rapists and thugs. Obama climbed a historical mountain Thursday with his party's presidential nomination. But Obama will go down in history as completely, shamefully wrong about Iraq, and the transcendant threat of radical Islam.
Barack Obama represents change I do not trust.
John McSame? Not so fast.
Governor Sarah Palin: McCain's VP?

If my information (and guess) is correct- Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska is McCain's VP pick. McCain is making his announcement tomorrow in Dayton, Ohio. Look who chartered a jet from Alaska to Ohio this evening... How many people do you know charter jets from Alaska (especially considering their population) to Ohio- the location of the Republican presidential nominee?
If she is his pick, he made an excellent choice. Governor Palin is an extraordinary woman and a very wise addition to his ticket. Who knows what will end up happening- but I am confident this is more than a coincidence... Time will tell....
