A few minutes ago Rush Limbaugh made a passionate argument for Hillary to stay in the race. He said, “an enemy divided is weak” and suggested that she should attack Barack, gather as many superdelegates as she can, work hard to get the FL and MI delegates seated despite a low turnout in FL and Barack not being on the ballot in MI, and have a huge fight on the convention floor. My fear is that she would do such a thing despite losing 11 straight contests. Are you listening Hillary? Democrats want to go into the general election strong. It’s people like Rush Limbaugh that’s pushing for you to fight. Here’s my advice to you Hillary. If you can’t at least tie Barack in the delegate count by March 5th then bow out gracefully so we can happily support you in 2016.
There are some crazy emails out there saying insane things about Senator Obama such as the title of this post. I’ve even seen a video of Senator Obama not putting his hand over his heart during the national anthem. Well, I know there are a few occasions where I’ve forgotten to do it. Apparently one occasion for Senator Obama was caught on video and this video is being used as “evidence” he never does it.
On Thursday night we saw a great debate between Senator Obama and Senator Clinton. I put up a poll and asked during the debate who was winning and overwhelmingly you voted for Senator Obama. During the debate Hillary continued to accuse Barack of plagiarism and she was booed and rightfully so.
money, monEY, MONEY! It takes money to run for president. So how are the candidates doing with money? Well, on Courant.com there’s an article about John McCain called “McCain Facing Finance Complications”. It says in part:
Ross Per…..who? Ross Perot was a businessman who ran for President in ’92 and he railed against the government’s fiscal insanity that created the large national debt which was $4 trillion at the time. He demonstrated the debt was mostly due to the Reagan and Bush years; the 12 years before 1992. When Reagan took office the national debt was only $934 billion. Now our debt is over $9 trillion and it’s mostly due to Reagan/Bush/Bush. We can’t let the Credit Card Republicans continue to bankrupt our country.
