Stupidity and Incompetence

Why John Edwards is dangerous
"War on Terror" is a bumper sticker slogan

Democratic Presidential hopeful John Edwards repudiated the notion that there is a "global war on terror," calling it an ideological doctrine advanced by the Bush administration. He also called the war on terror a "bumper sticker" slogan Bush had used to justify everything from abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison to the invasion of Iraq.

This is not the first time the former North Carolina Senator disputed the idea the United States is at war with Islamic fundamentalists. Let me take you back to South Carolina last month at the Democratic debate when Edwards, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich and former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel— said they did not believe there was a global war on terror.

After 9/11, London, Madrid, Bali, Baghdad, Beirut, Israel, Kabul, Istanbul and recent arrests in New Jersey, anyone who doesn't believe that western civilization is not under attack by Islamic fundamentalists, needs to put down the crack pipe.

Edwards and the majority of Democrats running for President have become a threat to the safety and security of our country. With the exception of Kucinich, I have no doubt they love this country. However, they don't reside in the real world and their inability to see the danger that threatens our very existence means that putting them in the Oval office would be a reincarnation of Jimmy Carter ten fold.

Last week I was driving to work and I heard an interview with former Alaska senator Mike Gravel who as mentioned above is a candidate for President. This incompetent had the ignorance to say that the Israel/Arab situation is "easy" to solve. "Everyone knows that you just have to go back to the 1967 borders," he stated. After hearing these words coming out of a man who was once a United States Senator, I temporarily lost control of my minivan, barely missing a tree.

Any world leader who believes that any past or present Palestinian Authority, especially one controlled by Hamas, is interested in a two state solution, is either an idiot or has a death wish for Jews. For Gravel to even use the word "easy" in relation to the Middle East shows how badly this guy doesn't get it.

Paulies Point has been angry with the GOP regarding their lack of fiscal discipline, increasing the size of government, mishandling Iraq and giving up on social security and school choice. However, the global war on terror is very real and is the most important issue facing our country if not the free world. I am very happy to see that the Republican Party and their Presidential candidates (except Paul) get it when it comes to the war on terror. To their credit, Clinton and Obama at least admit their is a war going on, but the rest of the Democratic field and most serving in the House and Senate, just don't get it.

Thank you John Edwards for reminding us that you and your colleagues are ignorant on the issue that matters most.

Feds subpoena Blagojevich records
Can you say Governor Quinn

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Federal prosecutors have subpoenaed records from Gov. Rod Blagojevich's campaign fund as part of a sweeping corruption investigation into whether top aides and advisers exchanged state business and jobs for political support.

The recent move is the first public indication that political financial records belonging to the governor are being sought. Sources describe the subpoena as the latest step in an ongoing investigation that has focused on major players in the record-breaking fundraising effort that propelled Blagojevich to consecutive terms.

Besides being an interesting story in Illinois, this investigation could have national implications. In a parallel investigation, Blagojevich top fundraiser and confidant Antoin "Tony" Rezko was charged with soliciting 1.5 million in political contributions as part of a kickback scheme at a state pension board. Rezko has direct ties with Illinois Senator and Presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

In 2005 Obama purchased land from Rezko that was adjacent to property he was was also buying. Their deals both closed on the same day. Obama eventually purchased a strip of Rezko's property to increase the size of his yard. Obama has already expressed "regret" for dealing with Rezko. Only time will tell if any wrongdoing occurred, but expect Mrs. Clinton and her team of investigators to uncover any illegal activity that Obama may be associated with.

Meanwhile, the Blagojevich camp is remaining quiet and even refused to answer why he has paid the prominent law firm of Winston & Strawn nearly 1 million dollars since 2003. Lt. Governor Patrick Quinn has recently been seen salivating at the mouth.

Mazel Tov Mary Cheney
Dick and Mary have their 6Th grandchild

Congratulations goes to the family of Vice President Dick Cheney, who's daughter Mary gave birth today to a baby boy. Samuel David Cheney was born at 9:46 a.m., weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces, at Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C.

I'm sure everyone recalls the controversy that erupted when it was learned that Mary and her homosexual partner for 15 years Heather Poe, announced Mary was pregnant. Religious conservatives have high regard for the Vice President, so the fact he had Lesbian daughter was conveniently forgotten. When it was announced she would bear a child, the religious right was extremely critical of the situation.

During this whole incident, the V.P. and his wife did the only thing a parent could supportive to their daughter.

This was a situation that was a loose, loose, win for grandpa and grandma Cheney. The far right wanted to see Mary publicly damned by her parents. The far left as well as the gay rights movement wanted the same, but their thinking was to have Cheney look like a mean old inhumane Republican who hated gays more than he loved his daughter.

It's no secret that your brilliant blogger is pro-gay rights, but as a heterosexual, I am saddened to see that most gays are pawns of the Democratic Party. They want to believe Cheney and President Bush are homophobes, but the truth is that they are far from it.

Mary Cheney would be "a loving soul to her child," President Bush told People magazine. "I believe children can receive love from gay couples but the ideal is – and studies have shown that the ideal is where a child is raised in a married family with a man and a woman."

The vice president is pleased to be a grandfather for the sixth time," spokeswoman Megan McGinn said.

Sorry homosexuals, these are not gay haters. Stop sitting in judgement my Christian friends. Let me remind you that is a sin. That reminds me, why was this also a win for the Vice President and his wife? They have another grandchild and that is a win that trumps all loses.
