So Close...
But why doesn't he just come out and say it?

Like many of you, I watched the Saddleback Forum last night. I gotta tell ya... I don't know what planet the Obamaniacs are on, but on what do they base their observations that The Obamanation was "concise", "eloquent" and "thoughtful"?

In the words of my dear old departed father; "you gotta be shittin' me". Barry stumbled, fumbled and mumbled his way through that particular interview. Did anyone else notice how he slowly but surely broke eye contact as the questions got tougher? And how about when he was asked "not to give your stump speech" on a certain topic, how physically irritated he got? Ol' Barry doesn't like to have the heat turned up, do he?

And how about when he was asked “At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?” His response: "answering that question with specificity is above my pay grade". How gutless.

McCain, on the other hand, gave answers that left little doubt that he meant what he said. Mostly...

He ducked the Embryonic Stem Cell Research question by tap dancing around it and saying that he is "wildly optimistic" that skin cell research "will make this debate an academic one."

Well, if you're so freakin' "wildly optimistic", then just come out and make this debate academic. Senator McCain, you need to clearly and unequivocally renounce ESCR. No nuancing... no tap dancing. Just damn say it.

That way you will no longer be in violation of one of the 5 Non-Negotiables, and then I (and thousands of others who take the protection of all innocent human life seriously) can support and vote for you.

One thing I will say; I believe the most telling moments were when they were asked what their most "gut-wrenching decision" ever was. The Obamination's bullshit answer how he "agonized" over being an favor of the war in Iraq. THAT is the most gut wrenching decision he's ever made!? Golly gee... he "agonized" that he might lose the election. What a vapid, lukewarm sorry excuse for a human being.

And I'll be honest, McCain's retelling how he turned down early release from a North Vietnamese POW camp because he had an obligation to abide by the Code of Conduct... that was real, touching and brought a lump to my throat. Especially when he said "But not only the toughest decision I ever made but I'm most happy about that decision than any decision I've ever made in my life."

But anyhow, the bottom line concerning last nights forum --- McCain administered an ass-whippin' of Biblical proportions. .

I read it about the "forum" in today's paper. And if we didn't already know how badly slanted the main stream (liberal) media is in favor of Obama, the article begins,
"Democrat Brack Obama and Republican John McCain..."
The next mention of the candidates begins,
"Obama, a senatoe from Illinois, and McCain, a senator from Arizona,..."
If you list the men in alphabetical order of the surname or their home states, by chronological age, or seniority inthe senate, McCain would be first every time. But not when a lib is writing the story.

Because you pointed out earlier on your blog Mr. Obama's habit of saying "Um". I could barely watch the Saddleback meeting without holding my fingers up at every "Obama Um". I gave up at 15 "Obama Ums" at every question, since having to go over my hands twice just seemed silly.

So you've now cursed me with counting "Obama Ums" for as long as he is in the Public Spotlight.

Not that I didn't before, but it was kinda obvious who would make the quicker decisions at "3 o'clock in the morninG".
