The Electing of a President

with 17 comments

One of the latest liberal demands for voters in the upcoming political race is that we shouldn’t look at certain presidential contenders as female or black, but just as candidates. This would be an interesting suggestion, but the problem is that the very same people can’t stop promoting the gender differences, skin color or the social concerns related to each. So this means we shouldn’t consider the race or gender of a candidate, but should vote for a candidate based on the positive attributes of their race or gender? What you have just witnessed is the madness of thought in a PC world.

Another inconsistent trait of liberals is that they tend to mask their candidates so we don’t know who they really are. They have this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing going on by presenting themselves as something they are not. Before the election we are presented with the kind and caring Dr. Jekyll and once elected it’s back to the self-absorbed Mr. Hyde. They say anything to get elected, but afterwards it’s back to pedal-to-the-metal liberalism.

Next we have the moderate candidates that masquerade as being conservative. They talk like a conservative, but have the walk of a moderate. They water-down or redefine what conservatism is, so they can appear to fit the mold. You will usually find them on the Republican ticket, but recognizing them can be a challenge. It may help to know that President Bush is such a leader. He has taken conservative stances on a few issues, but his record indicates that he is a moderate. If he would have held fast to conservative principles he would have done fine, but he didn’t and we all know how that has turned out.

On your quest for wisdom you must understand that when selecting a candidate for president, promises are usually deceptive. You must look at their record in order to get a better picture of the person. If they have no record to speak of then walk away. In these dangerous times a rookie in charge is suicide. During a time of war we can choose a strong leader or we can choose weak leader, but however the majority rules we the people will get exactly what we deserve.

  1. Hi LC,

    Good points. Of course, according to news coverage of candidates, the technical term for changing one’s political ideology to suit a target audience is “shifting” combined with “left, right, or center.” My term for this is “lying.” This, in my view, is why the Republicans were such failures while in the majority, and why they are now in the back seat. It is also why I voted for Bush the second time around. He may not be as conservative as I would like, but at least he stick a wet finger into the political wind to make his decisions. I will take predictability over pandering any day.

  2. Hi Grit

    There’s no doubt that the Republican leadership committed a fatal error when they turned their backs on the people that sent them there. Perhaps they are a bit wiser for the experience.

    Yes, a wet finger attached to a politician is never a good sign. 🙂

  3. Hi LC,

    That, I would think, depends on their proximity to an electrical outlet.

  4. Hi guys,

    I agree that if the “progressive,liberal” camp laid out just exactly what they would do to recreate America in their own image, the screams of panic and fear would be heard in China.

    Politicians are, after all, deceitful creatures, hiding their true opinion and belief from at least half of the constituents.

    Whatever happened to STATESMAN in American politics as opposed to the weasels we now have? Well, they were slaughtered in the bloodbath wrought through the MSM and lazy, weakwilled voters.

    Agreed, we get what we deserve every damn time.

  5. Hi Hank

    Nope, no statesman in sight. So given the present lineup of unworthy candidates and taking into consideration football season is over, I’ve decided it may be great fun watching them rip into each other.

    Let the games begin.

  6. I have to admit, I also enjoy the process of politicians ripping each other to shreds before the primaries:) The DemonRats should be exceptionally fun, but I’d like to see Guiliani and McPain go at too.

    Other than that, NASCAR is already geared up to be a jolly time of entertainment.

  7. Hi wytammic – Welcome to the Realm

    McPain… I like that.

    The primaries are definitely the best of times when it comes to a good show.

    Speaking of shows, can you believe there is a cheating scandal in NASCAR already? Looks like they are looking to boost ratings even higher this year.

    Thanks for stopping by

  8. I certainly can believe the cheating has started:) Seems like a part of racing. On the other hand, poor Jeff Gordon (and that is not to be interpreted as sarcastic at all — because he’s my favorite) had to find out during a press conference that his car was almost an inch too low and he’s starting next to last! Dang — poor kid.

  9. Hi wytammic

    Yeah, I saw him blindsided on the news this morning. I’m not sure what they expected him to say but he handled it quite well. I expect his crew chief or whoever handles such matters will keep him better informed in the future.

  10. Hi LC, w,

    Don’t tell anyone I said this (I live in the South and could easily be lynched), but watching cars drive around in a circle doesn’t appeal to me. Now, Death Race 2000, that’s how it should be done!

  11. I’m with Grit,

    I not only fail to grasp the thrill of a car race, I’ve never even changed my own oil. I’m the guy that turns slowly into the shopping center, causing more agressive drivers to slam on their brakes. I’ve never been hit in the rear, indicating their great braking skills.

    Maybe another blog on car racing would be a good way to learn.

    Seems if you state your opinions matter of factly, with a little enthusiasm thrown in, folks come out of the woodwork to straighten you out and slam your evil thoughts and it’s effects on the planet.

    Jeff Gordon I know- he was the highest paid “athlete” in 2005.

  12. Hi Grit

    You underestimate the relaxing qualities of a NASCAR race. You can’t beat it for a Sunday afternoon snooze. Believe it or not it’s even better than baseball, must be all that zoom, zoom.

  13. Hi Hank

    So you’re that guy who checks my brakes at the shopping center. If you heard a horn blow it wasn’t me, it was the evil SUV.

    Yes, a strong opinion can lead to some pretty interesting exchanges. I’m amazed at the emotion that is generated about all this climate and planet stuff. Imagine if you were discussing something really important.

  14. Grit and Hank —

    You should really give racing a chance. Believe it or not, but it’s more fun than politics!

    My hubby and I are originally from SW KS and really love sprint car racing — World of Outlaws, but NASCAR is exciting too.

  15. Hi w,

    Perhaps it’s my short attention span, but after lap three I can’t take it anymore. Maybe if they got to drive different cars…

  16. Are you being serious when you refer to Bush as a moderate? Nah, you can’t be. Anybody can see that Bush is the religious right’s wetdream.

    And I don’t see anyone saying that you shouldn’t talk or think about Senator Clinton’s gender or Senator Obama’s race. What I have seen is op eds and quotes urging that we not judge them solely by their race or gender. Of course, we all know that people, especially conservatives will judge them for those very reasons. Oh, in public discussion or in polls they will declare that gender or race shouldn’t/doesn’t matter. But we know that they are not being truthful.

  17. Hi Bloggernista

    The cable news channels are filled with a wealth of information and would be much more reliable if they just reported facts without the spin or biased commentary. So yes, what I have stated is being said.

    Everything about a candidate should be considered from the color of their skin to the number of eggs they eat in the morning. Nothing is off the table. How else can we choose the best from what we are given?

    Many hoped that President Bush would have made more conservative decisions. He, like his father made the mistake of trying to appease the democrats and for his efforts they pulled a Brutus on him.
