There wasn't much on TV tonight so I tuned into the Democrat's debate. I came away from it thinking that both of the Democrat candidates! She said his health care plan was written by a Republican. He said she's a friend of health insurance companies. We found out that only the two of them can save us all. We are all too stupid to take care of ourselves and we need either Hillary or Barack to ride in on their white horses to save us.
I'm trying to go light on Hillary, because after watching her debate I would love nothing more than to have her be the Democrat's candidate. Come on, the woman is nuts. We should all lay off, so I'll keep it brief.
Hillary keeps talking about Upstate NY, where I live. Let me tell you that Hillary Clinton has not done one darn thing for Upstate, NY. (Although I can say that despite her, our housing market is doing very well, thank you very much!) But if AlGore were president, she would have created 200,000 jobs in Upstate NY. I'm still laughing about that one. That hypothetical is okay. But she doesn't like the hypothetical about what to do when Iraq erupts into complete chaos after she pulls our troops out of there.
When talking about NAFTA Senator Obama really needs to get his contintents straight. China is not part of the NORTH AMERICAN Free Trade Agreement. I'm sure he'll get a pass for that one due to his total inexperience, which according to some liberals is just what we need. They must have forgotten about Jimmy Carter.
BO thinks that we need more troops in Afghanistan but less in Iraq. But if all of our "friends" agree, if necessary he would re-invade Iraq after he pulls our troops out of there. That's so John Kerryesque of him.
BO also made some more lofty promises. He is the only person who cares about the American people. Certainly no living Republican cares about any of us. Barack will take care of us all. Your problems will end if Barack Obama is elected president. Don't worry. Have faith in the new Messiah.
There was a moment when I did a double take when BO said "Hope is not enough." Then he said something about change, so he got right back on track. Whew! What would we idiot Americans do without hope?
Barack said he has been a stalwart friend of Israel. There was no follow up question asking him when or in what capacity. This is the guy who will sit down with Ahmadinejad with no pre-conditions. You know, the guy that wants to wipe Israel off the map?
Obama was then asked about his liberal voting record. All I could think was "Thank God he is not running as the Straight Talk Express" because his answer had more loops than a roller coaster.
Finally, we heard from Hillary a lot of shoulda, woulda, coulda and Clintonesque triangulation when asked about taking back her vote on the Iraq war.
When Obama was asked if there ever was a vote he would change, I was hoping he would mention his vote as an Illinois state senator against having a doctor present when a partial birth abortion baby was born alive. But no, he won't change any vote. Just more shoulda, woulda, coulda.
