What They Should Say

I'm getting a bit upset with Hillary. Can't the woman just give a straight, unequivocal answer to a question? For instance:

Reporter: "Hillary, do you believe Obama is a Muslim?"

Hillary's answer: "Well, I will take his word that he is not."

Best answer: "Of course I don't believe he's a Muslim! What a silly question!"

Reporter: "Hillary, will you repudiate Geraldine Ferraro's racist comments?"

Hillary's answer: "I don't agree with what she said. Both campaigns have said things that are over the top. Hopefully, we can stop that in the future. But, no, I'm not going to fire Gerry. I can't. She's not a paid worker." (sly smile).

Best answer: "I was very surprised and saddened to hear her say those things. I had no idea she felt that way, and I have asked her to stop representing me in any way."

And, all this "I'm experienced" stuff. Instead of claiming to play large parts in foreign policy decisions while visiting other countries, why couldn't she say, "I have been in the unique position of being present during preparations for many foreign policy meetings and have been allowed to observe closely. While my husband and the other world leaders met, I have been able to go off on my own and speak with the citizens of many foreign countries. I feel these experiences have given me a first-hand education in foreign policy. This is what I mean when I say I am more experienced."

Gad, why didn't she make me her Campaign Manager??????


Obama does it right. Today's speech was great. His answers to questions from the media are always short and to the point.

I have a question for the Republicans and I don't expect them to give me an answer. Why don't you condemn John McCain for accepting support from the likes John Hagee and Pat Robertson, who have both made some pretty reprehensible comments on a variety of subjects? Why is McCain given a pass and Barack Obama is not?

I thought he did well, too. I was watching The View this morning (I can't believe I admit that, but there you go) and I liked what Joy said. Elizabeth was going off on how Obama needs to be held responsible because of this horrible preacher and Joy said that her parents are devout Catholics, and even though there has been a lot of problems with pedophiles and other things in the church, they haven't stopped going to church and being Catholic. It's an issue of faith.

And I am really tired of politicians constantly denouncing what their supporters have to say. It's a whole new side to political correctness.

Agreed and agreed. I though Obama's speech was right on it. Although I am sure some will find it uncomfortable. The truth is not always a welcome subject.

I also question why McCain is given a pass on Hagee and the likes. I wonder if this will continue through the general election.

On another note...
The blither that passes for news absolutely amazes me and I am continuously frustrated by the number of people who are satisfied to believe what they hear or see from these idiots, without taking the time to look a little further for some solid information.

Like most Brits I had never heard of John Hagee, so I watched a few clips of him on 'YouTube'.
Blimey ! McCain needs him like a hole in the head.

Like the elephant which is the mascot of their party being ethical or "right" isn't as important as falling in line and following the tail in front of you.

Towing the line and not making waves...
