The Phone Call (or: Bill who? I hardly know him)

Ring, ring.

Hello?

Hi there. May I speak to Barry please.

This is he. Who is this?

Hi Barack. This is Bill down the street, and I wanted to…

Excuse me, but who did you say you are?

Bill, your neighbor. Bill Ayers. You know, the house on the corner with all the rosebushes?

Oh, yeah. Do I know you? Have we met?

Well, no. But I waved at you the other day as you drove past. Remember?

Uh…yeah, so what can I do for you? What do you do?

Well, I used to be a domestic terrorist. Blowing up buildings and causing havoc. You know, “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at But that’s all in the past – heck, you were only 8 years old, right?. I wish I’d done more damage, but whatever. Anyway, now I have a respectable job. I’m a professor at the University, and…

Excuse me again, Phil...

Bill. That’s “Bill”.

Ok, sorry. Bill. Excuse me again, Bill, but can I help you with something?

Have you ever thought about running for public office, Barack?

Public office? You mean, like in being a politician?

Yeah. You know, running for office, representing the people, that kind of thing.

Well, not really, so why would you…?

I want to help you, Barry...you know... get your start and all. Gain supporters. I have a lot of friends just like me. How about letting me help you get started down your political path? We can have a fundraiser at my place. I’ll do all the legwork. You just show up and be charming.

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight, Ph..er…I mean Bill. You are an ex-terrorist, I don’t know you, but you want to feature a “meet the candidate” party at your house and help me get into politics? And I’m assuming there are no strings attached? I don’t have to agree with your ideas, get counsel from you, or even be your friend?

You’ve got it, Barry. Just speak the word. I know you probably need some time to think about it. I’ll give you a call back tomorrow.

Ok. Sounds interesting. Talk to you tomorrow. Goodbye…

Michelle….!





This is what the Obama camp wants us to believe.

Does anybody REALLY believe this?

"No one cares, get over it." This is what liberals, lefty's, and most independents are saying. This is a blip on the political radar screen for most disconnected voters. Only those of us that really care about the direction our nation is heading care about the Obama Eires, and Jeremiah Wright type issues. We social conservatives are out-numbered now. We best get use to that fact and concentrate on the last great harvest of lost souls. I am not convinced John McCain would even make that much difference in these last days before the Lord returns. I had hope for Sarah Palin, but she has been so severely savaged by the MSM press and far left loons that she will not be able to recover after the election. Now, having said all this, I still have the faith that God may still remove his wrath toward our nation and perhaps allow his people to attempt to turn our nation back to God. Remember that II Chron. 7-14 starts out with " If my people who are called by my name--". So lets all be on our knees and in agreement, praying for God's mercy and grace to fall upon our nation in these dark times. God bless, Herm

Herm,

You hit the nail on the head. Liberals don't care about facts. They never have. It's about their ideals and their feelings...that's what it's always been about. Reality isn't part of their agenda.

As for McCain, after last week's remark he made saying that an Obama presidency is nothing to be afraid of, I'm almost back to the decision not to vote at all. For him to make such a statement when our country's democracy is at stake tells me that he's not even CLOSE to the conservative principles I hold dear.

Yes Ms Green, I agree with you about McCain. I wasn't going to vote for him originally, but Sarah Palin changed my mind. I really believe she is a godly woman. God still may be willing to use her as an instrument to bring our nation back to Godly principles and belief. We won't know this of course until election time. We all need to be praying about this. My vote won't be for Mccain but for Sarah Palin. This battle is a spiritual battle in high places. Satan does not want a Godly leader of our nation. She certainly has brought her faith to Washington. Pray for her. Herm

I wouldn't make too much of Johnny Mac's statement. He's no statesman and his ability to clearly articulate, especially off the cuff, is poor, much like Dubya. At Perri Nelson's Website (Linked at my blog), Perri has a list of reasons why he's supporting McCain, even though he's not a big fan, either. It's a recent post of his and worth checking out. I couldn't add anything to it, myself, and some of them kinda changed my tune (his take on McCain/Feingold). The point is that Perri's perspective made me feel a little better about supporting McCain.

I'd also like to re-iterate my lesser of two evils perspective. Even if McCain was a bit worse than he is (and I don't think he's horrible, just not what I wanted), I believe that it would be unChristian to sit out the election thus making it easier to Obama to win. It falls under the heading of what happens when good men (& women) do nothing. So voting for one guy because he's not as bad as the other is a noble thing merely for lessening the harm that was possible.

I don't know, Marshall. McCain just doesn't seem to have any fight in him - which is suprising considering his POW background.

I feel a lot like the guy last week who stood up and told McCain, "I'm mad. I'm real mad. And we are expecting YOU (McCain and Palin) to go out and do something about it. This country is going to the socialist dogs and the only thing we have at the moment is McCain. He's not what most of us wanted, but he's all we've got. So get out there and fight! That's what I want to see.

Believe me when I say your point is not in the least lost on me. I, too, would like to see a bit more "Give 'em hell!" as did Truman. And indeed, such tepid emotion could be his downfall. But, he's promised to kick BO's butt in the next debate tomorrow (while I'm bowling and enjoying some brewskies),so I hope to find that he did so. He needs to.
