McCain Builds a Winning Team



As all you parents out there can attest, you can tell a lot about a person by the people with whom they associate. This is becoming clear in the Presidential campaign.

Draw your own conclusions. Barrack Obama: Pastor Wright, who leads the church Obama has been a member of for twenty years. Hillary Clinton: Elliot Spitzer, (former?) DNC superdelegate and superJohn.

Meanwhile, while Obama and Clinton tear each other to shreds (I suspect the best is yet to come), John McCain is building his team and surrounding himself with proven leaders like John Chambers and now Meg Whitman.

Outgoing eBay chief executive Meg Whitman is joining Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign as national co-chairperson.

The McCain campaign said Friday that she will help raise money and policy development and travel the country on his behalf.

"All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they are — were recipients of the judgment of God for that. The newspaper carried the story in our local area that was not carried nationally that there was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came. And the promise of that parade was that it was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other Gay Pride parades. So I believe that the judgment of God is a very real thing."

Smithers!

It's on.

Yup, it's far more important that one candidate makes a ten minute speech or two before consituents of one controversial preacher than it is that a likely opponent spent 20 YEARS as a member of the church of a flat out racist preacher.

I would suspect that part of the reason for "thinking" like this is that for the past half century, logic has been taught as "critical thinking" (meaning "disagree with people I disagree with"), if at all.

I'll say it again. Thank goodness no republicans have ever associated with racists.

p.s. I'm stupid.

Bike Bubba said...

I'll say it again; there is a difference between associating with someone for 20 minutes, and being in close fellowship with someone for 20 years.

Good grief. Is this the best you can do, kruse & smithers? "Yes, Obama did this, but McCain did something that's about 0.01% as bad!"?

Sometimes someone has to flat out say "I screwed up royally, and I apologize" to regain credibility. Obama's at that point.

Smithers...everybody knows that Katrina was caused by Global Warming.

McCain had the opportunity to reject Hagee's endorsement yet he chose to embrace it.

Don't get me wrong, I could really care less about endorsements from the religious community.

What I find hilarious is that Republican candidates will meet with, and get endorsed by, those in the religious community who espouse hatred and intolerance and no one in the media cares.

Meanwhile CNN turns into the Obama's Pastor Network.

Liberal media indeed.

Bike Bubba said...

No one in the media cares, Smithers? Then exactly how did you learn about this? And exactly why do I remember an uproar when a GOP candidate or two spoke at BJU when they still prohibited interracial dating?

Yeesh. Can you at least admit a little bit of reality into your posts?

That's debatable!
