We have got to get Obama to speak without the telepromter.

If Obama isn't going to debate McCain and take questions to from the people of this country. McCain and other Conservatives should make statements that force him to do inpromptu press conferences. Anytime someone ask a conversal question about Obama say "I think you really should ask Obama himself about that." Maybe we could get the press to ask, do you think Ginsberg and Stevens are the type of judges that you would want to nominate to the Supreme Court? McCain could say something like you know what kind of judges I would nominate to the court, what about Sen. Obama?

We must call Obama out on his failure to debate McCain even though Obama said he'd debate McCain anywhere anytime. "If John McCain wants to meet me anywhere, anytime, to have a debate about our respective policies in Iraq, in Iran, in the Middle East or around the world, that is a conversation I am happy to have," it appears however that Obama was just kidding about this too. Here's a video of him saying he'd debate McCain.

If Obama won't debate McCain by himself were going to have to find someway to get him on the stage without a script in front of him. He is not a great speaker when he doesn't have the words right there. Also it doesn't appear he remembers much of his speeches once he's finished with them, kinda like me with my German classes. That is the only explanation I can come up with on why Obama keeps contradicting himself.

I know for a fact that both sides want to see these townhall debates. Maybe the people themselves will be able to convince Obama to keep his word, but I doubt it.

Obama decides he was kidding about taking Public Financing.

Barack Obama despite saying he would take public financing if his opponet did has decided not to take Public Financing. Despite the fact John McCain has kept his word and taken the public money. Of course now Obama says the system is broken. Amazing how the system broke just when it was time for him to use it.

Good News for Iraq

At first I was going to write about all the good news that was going on in Iraq, but then I got a better idea. Anytime I hear any good news about Iraq I'm going to post it here. I'll update it as much as needed. I hope this will keep my readers informed of all the good we have done in Iraq and help balance out all the negative press. I'll most likely have something to report later tonight.

This article was written about a month ago, but I think it's a good one to get things started.

Cease fire in the Middle East.

A cease-fire between Hamas and Israel went into effect at 6am this morning. Of course Hamas did manage to spend all day yesterday firing as many rockets has possible into Isreal before the truce began. Isreal is suppose to eaze it's blockade of Gaza within three days, and a week later ease restrictions at cargo crossings.

Obama's September 10th mindset.

Barack Obama Apparently thinks there was nothing wrong with the way we handled terrorism before 9/11 and would go back to treating terrorist has common criminals if President. "Let’s take the example of Guantanamo. What we know is that in previous terrorist attacks, for example, the first attack against the World Trade Center, we were able to arrest those responsible, put them on trial. They are currently in U.S. prisons, incapacitated," Obama said in an interview on ABC's Nightline. However while the terrorist that were captured in the U.S. for the 93 WTC bombing had been "incapacitated." The truth is that we did not round up everyone responsible for the bombings there were many unindicted co-conspirators. During the trail of these men Al-Qaeda learned that we were listening in to phone calls of Osama Bin Laden and everything else the government knew about the organization, including the list of unindited co-conspirators during discovery. Former President Clinton and former chief of the CIA, George Tenet were not able to see evidence in the case that would've led capture of more terrorist because the evidence was placed under a grand jury seal. The evidence was under seal because the government did not want intelligence tainted in order to obtain a conviction. The evidence that was under seal included The cost of the trials that convicted seven people, $100 million dollars. Had we treated this attack has an act of war instead of a crime, 9/11 would probably have never happened.

Obama also agrees with the decision of the U.S. Supreme court to grant Habeus Corpus rghts to the detainees at Guantanamo Bay. He even wants to give Bin Laden Habeus Corpus Rights if he is captured. He said about capturing Bin Laden, "I think what would be important would be for us to do it in a way that allows the entire world to understand the murderous acts that he’s engaged in and not to make him into a martyr," and what way is that? The people that support Bin Laden will see him has a martyr if he is killed by American forces. In my opinion the sooner Bin Laden guy is a martyr the better. I understand that a President has to enforce the law, but I would feel better if he at least realized this decision puts Americans at risk.

Senator John Kerry critizes John McCain for how he wants to prosecute the war, " He has fully embraced willfully, openly, fully embraced the failed, tragic policy of the Bush administration over the last seven and a half years. … He’s really defending a policy that is indefensible. He’s proving every day that he doesn’t understand Iraq, or the Middle East or the War on Terrorism." WOW! Does Senator Kerry really believe that a Freshman Senator with almost no foreign policy experience knows more about the Middle East than a Senator with several years of foreign policy experience? I think it's Senator Kerry and the Democrats that don't understand the Middle East, especially Iraq.

Why won't Obama debate McCain?

So why is Obama afraid to debate John McCain? Is it because he feels McCain experience in foreign policy will make him look weak? Is it that Obama doesn't want to discuss tax policies with John McCain? Is it because Obama is not has quick on his feet has he great at giving speeches? Is he worried that he can't know the answers beforehand if he doesn't know the questions beforehand? Does he fear being showed up by Senator McCain on a national stage? Or is it just that he doesn't want those bitter bible thumping, gun toting, regular people asking him questions he does not want to answer? Yes.

At these town halls there will probably be someone there asking about the Rev. Wright controversay, or about Bill Ayers, or another major problem Obama has had in this campaign. Obama doesn't want to talk about these issues because they remind people of his negatives, and he has any politican only wants people thinking about his positives. Obama will have to duck and dodge these questions making him look like the typical slippery politican who can't give a straight answer. That's not good when your with someone who rode in on the "Straight Talk Express."

Another reason would be Obama's lack on Foreign Policy experience. Obama doesn't wnat to talk about Foreign policy, no matter how much he says he does. Obama has no idea what to do when it comes to forgien policy. I don't think he's read a paper for information on Iraq in two years, if he had he would realize that the surge has been successful and that the Iraqi's on getting closer to being able to defend themselves every day. However an early withdrawl will allow that progress to collapse and probably force the U.S. to go back in just a few years. McCain would say Except this time will be facing an entrenched Al-Qaeda and possibly a nuclear Iran. Right now we have Al-Qaeda in Iraq on the ropes and Iran under international pressure to cease it's nuclear weapons program. At a town hall event this subject is most likely going to be bought up. Then Obama will have to explain why people should listen to him instead of a war hero with over thirty years of experience in the Senate, and many years of experience handling forgien policy, I wish the Freshman Senator luck with that.

Obama's plans to raise taxes on Americans is probably not going to go over well. Especially when put next to McCain's plan to lower taxes. Plain and simple most people believe lower taxes are better for them than high taxes. The more money the government takes away from you the less you have to spend. Of course Obama thinks the government should provide for you, and knows better than you what you need. They want to take your paycheck and spend it on universal healthcare, more money for welfare and unemployment, and other special projects which Obama will tell us about if he gets elected. Meanwhile we will still keep spending money on lawmakers pork barrel projects, most of which do nothing to help the country. McCain will keep taxes low and veto any bill containing these pork-barrel projects. That always goes over better with people than raising taxes and spending money on pork-barrel projects.

On top of everything else I've stated Obama only wants one town hall event, on July 4th because he doesn't come off has well at them has he does when giving speeches. If you don't believe me you can find some examples on my website. Obama doesn't think has well on his feet has many in the media would like us to believe. However McCain does. This is the reason he wants the one townhall on July 4th when everyone is out at a BBQ. At a town hall the American people would see a McCain that is just has vigorous has Obama. Obama on the otherhand would not come off has well has he does in his speeches because there would be follow up questions and people would ask for details of his plans. In my opinion the crowd at the townhall, and at home won't like the plans Obama has for the country. The townhalls would also take away the age factor. The events will make people forget about how old he is.

McCain could probably win the election on the strength of these events alone if Obama accepted the challenge. McCain is just better than Obama in townhall settings. However, if Obama refuses to debate McCain at these townhall events, as he has so far, McCain will beat him over the head with the issue. McCain will and is already asking Obama why he doesn't want to American people to see them debate. He's also showing the American people that he's ready to debate the younger Obama and by asking for ten debates is telling them he's in great shape. The truth is this is a win-win for McCain.
