Congressional Elections

I had hoped that McCain's selection of Sarah Palin would put him ahead of Obama once and for all. Her selection was in my opinion one of the great political strategy moves of all time. It caught Obama flat footed, galvanized the conservative base, brought more women into Republican side and laid the groundwork for a new generation of Republican conservatives.

I wanted McCain to get ahead so we could put more emphasis on the congressional elections. Republicans really need to recapture congress now more than ever before. The financial mess that just exploded onto the scene demands a lot of attention and we can't trust Democrats to do what is needed.

What is just as important as the financial meltdown is the energy problem. Democrats have already demonstrated that they will no allow expanded exploration and drilling for oil in American waters or other likely areas onshore. What is just as important as drilling for new sources is to build new refineries in areas outside the hurricane zone. Ike proved that a hurricane in the Gulf has an immediate negative impact on oil prices and availability. We have all our eggs in ine basket and desperately need to start locating refineries in other regions.

Probably the biggest thing we need to do and what the Democrats will block if they stay in power is to capitalize on our abundant natural gas reserves. We not only need to drill for more natural gas, we need to build more pipelines to make natural gas available to over 90% of homes and to natural gas fueling stations for cars.

In my opinion, we desperately need to oust the democrats from their majorities in congress. If we don't, we are going to have energy shortages on a massive scale and we will be even more dependent on oil from the middle east. Democrats simply will not address those issues and they will put this country on a path to ruin.

Chuck, have you heard the rumor floating-around that just after the VP-candidates debate that Motormouth is going to feign some medical issue and bow-out so the HilldaBeast can be named running mate? [A "reply" to Sarah's selection]

I've heard that rumor but I don't believe it. The Hildabeast will watch with glee as Obama goes down in flames. She has nothing to gain by being the VP candidate of last resort.

In addition, Biden truly believes he is making a positive contribution to Obama's campaign. He is a legend in his own mind.

Palin was the one of the greatest political strategy moves of all time? She was more qualified to be VP than any of the other Republicans? If the goal was to bring more women, she failed big time. If McCain had stuck to his principles, he would have chosen Liebermann or Ridge. Or if he had wanted to go with a woman, he had Susan Collins or Kay Bailey Hutchensen to choose from. Those are a pair of women who wouldn't have made idiots of themselves when answering Katie Couric's basic, softball questions..

Hey Cracker - you're dumber than rocks! Sarah Palin is too dumb and lazy to be a successful politician.
