Wesley Clark- Asshat or Brasshat?

Wesley Clark found it necessary to pronounce John McCain is "untried and untested" in an inteview on Face The Nation. This about as ignorant a statement as one could make about McCain in my opinion.

Surviving five years in a North Vietnamese prison and being tortured for most of that time is about as much testing as one could expect from a candidate for President of The USA.

Pretty Boy or Perfumed Prince, just a couple of his many nicknames, Clark wouldn't last 10 minutes under the torture that the Vietnamese inflicted on McCain yet he feels qualified to question McCain's metal. Clark is known as a prima dona who, when he was on active duty, had a super large staff catering to his outlandish demands.

Wesley Clark was fired from his post of Nato Supreme Commander because of character and intergrity issues. I take that to mean he is untrustworthy, arrogant and incompetent. British General Sir Mike Jackson refused to obey an order from Clark to send assault troops to prevent Russian troops from taking over the airfield of Kosovo's provincial capital stating" I am not going to start the third world war for you".

When Clark was running for President, General Shelton and General Schwartzkopf both commented on his lack of qualifications and stated they would not vote for him. I can certainly see why. Clark got to be a 4 star general through brown nosing and backstabbing. For his length of service and rank, he served a very short time in combat. He only served several months in a combat unit in Vietnam and was then assigned to staff jobs and to West Point.

Clark is probably the least liked or respected General in the uS Army since General McClellan in the Civil War. Yet he thinks he is qualified to judge John McCain. What a joke!

McCain Needs To Get On The Ball

I am beginning to get really concerned that Obama will get elected in November. He has everything going for him and unless something drastic and unexpected comes up I would say he has about a 95% chance of winning.

Obama has the Press in his pocket. They will do almost anything to help him get elected. They downplayed the Preacher and Priest mess and have said virtually nothing about Obamas connection to the Weatherman Bomber. Of course, the cable networks made some hay out of those issues but newspapers and the legacy networks barely mentioned them.

Another thing that is helping Obama is the price of Gas. It is incredible to me that the price of gas has sucessfuly been laid at President Bush's doorstep. The Democrats have blocked every attempt by the White House and the few remaining Republican Congresspersons to develop a realistic energy policy. What is so maddening about this is that the way it gets played by the media is that the Republicans are trying to line the pockets of their oil tycoon buddies. The Democrats come off looking like they stopped a looting and the Republicans just stand there with their faces hanging out.

George Bush needs to call press conferences and make use of his position to announce to the world that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are responsible for high gas prices. He needs to hammer away at it with the same determination the Democrats have shown in trying, and suceeding, to wreck his Presidency.

President Bush, Dick Cheney and every other Administration offical need to put on a full court press to hang the energy problem around the Democrats neck

Short of another 911 type attack on us, the energy mess is about the only thing that is going to pull McCain's fat out of the fire. He certainly isn't getting his message out on his own.

McCain needs to hammer the energy problem in tandem with the Administration. He needs to show some of the grit that got him through his stay at the Hanoi Hilton. So far, McCain has let Obama just say anything about him that pops into his head. McCain needs to show some of his famous temper. I think people would respect him if he did. Nobody respects someone who is big enough to stand up to a bully but won't. The only way to deal with a bully is to whip his ass.

McCain. if you read this, take it to heart. Otherwise you are going to lose.

Clinton and Obama

I find all the speculation about whether Obama will choose Hillary to be his running mate very amusing. In my opinion, that would be like French kissing a rattlesnake.

I don't give Obama much credit in the intelligence department but I don't think he is stupid enough to put Hillary and Bill in a position to ensure that he would be a one term president. From day one they would begin undermining him and there would be virtually nothing he could do about it. He couldn't fire her/them. They would be free to sabotage everything he tried to do. They have many more connections in the right places in Washington than he does and many of them wanted her for President in the first place.

Obama winning the nomination was a strategic mistake on Hillary's part. She let him get a head start just like the Rabboit did with the Hare. When you give up that much ground at the beginning, it is almost impossible th regain it at the end.

I hope Obama doesn't get elected, but if he does I hope he will do it without Hillary. We don't need the kind of skullduggery that the Clintons will do if she is Vice President.



Based on the amount of coverage it received yesterday, one would not know that one of the most important days in history happened on that day. The invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944 was an effort of epic proportions. The largest naval fleet ever assembled transported and landed the largest amphibious invasion of a hostile shore in history.

D-Day marked the beginning of the end of the Nazi stranglehold on Europe. It allowed the allied forces of the allies to virtually surround Germany. With the Russians advancing on Germany from the East and the US and it's allies advancing from the West there was no place for the Germans to go but back to Germany. The Normandy invasion set the stage for the freedom of all of western Europe and the ultimate collapse of the most heinous regime ever to exist on this Earth.

Most of the men and women involved in the Normandy invasion are dead not but those few who remain deserve a more fitting tribute than they received Friday. I, for one, revere them and thank them for the sacrifices they made for the generations that followed them. They were great people who saw a wrong and set it right.
