Blast24: 2008 Is Today

wow!!! this is gettin' ugly!! The gloves are coming off fast.
One year to go and this is where we are? This will be a knock down
drag out before it's all said and done. Hillary, you got them on the ropes now...
They calling you dirty names!!!



Well at least it was a woman, or I would have to go and slap somebody in your honor (if it was man). Ok, Bill would...but man.......and this has nothing to do with politics.
Respect...never lose sight of how far women have come. I'm shocked by the candor of that woman who made the statement.

That was just totally uncalled for. And then they want to turn right around and blame the hip hop community for using the word.

A bunch of hypocrites!

So very true Anita.

I don't like Hillary but that really turned me off right there. There was absolutely no call for that. Too bad for her there was a camera in that room.

I'm a bitch!

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs,
they call me a bitch.

When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.

When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts,
or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch entails raising my children to be strong people who have a solid sense of personal and social responsibility, who are
not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and who love andn respect themselves for the beautiful beings they are.

Being a bitch means that I am free to be the wonderful creature that am, with all my own intricacies, contradictions, quirks and beauty.

Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart. It means I live my life MY way.
It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak up against it, I am defined as a bitch.

The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.

I am proud to be a bitch! It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think I "should" be.

I am outspoken, opinionated, and determined. By Goddess, I want what I want, and there is nothing wrong with that!

So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me. You won't succeed.

And if that makes me a bitch, so be it. I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

Dragonfly..that's well said.

It's ashame that McCain just let that woman talk about Senator Clinton like that. McCain would never call her that yet had no problem with someone else speaking of his colleague in those terms.

By McCain condoning that speech, it really lowers the level of discourse.

Brent Crouch said...

Condoning? Mstearne what are you talking about? What should he of done?

I thought he handled it pretty well. He stated he respected Senator Clinton.

Maybe if he staged all the crowd questions like Hillary then he would have better control of what people say.

mstearne said...

He laughed at the comment. If someone called your mother a b*tch you wouldn't laugh at the comment and then give an answer. John McCain is a good person but he gave into a peer pressure and went along and laughed with the crowd. If he is trying to be President he should be above name calling or snickering at it. He should have said there is no place for language like that.

Talk about staging crowds? I am not even allowed in the same room as my President because I am a Democrat. That is staging crowds.

Brent Crouch said...

I'll go along with that. He did "snicker". I interpreted his actions as he was completely taken off guard and wasn't sure how to respond. I guess none of us really know.

Personally, I've been a conservative all of my voting history. That has lead me to vote Republican more times than not. But for this election cycle, I don't see anyone I am excited about voting for on either side.

I don't want to vote for Rudy G. What's the alternative? Is Hillary the best the Dems can do? Why not run a guy like Joe Liberman? I never thought I could get excited about Al Gore, but I would rather see him President than Hillary.

What qualifies her to be President anyway?

mstearne said...

http://www.barackobama.com/ is someone to check out.

I personally don't see how Hillary Clinton is much more qualified than Laura Bush besides a few years in the Senate.

Rudy G just seems a little slimy to me (and I live in NYC).

Ron Paul makes a lot of sense.

Brent Crouch said...

Obama is just as inexperienced as Hillary. He has no real accomplishments. I do view him as very articulate and an excellent speaker. With a few years under his belt, I could see him as a real contender.

One thing that really hurt him in my view was the recent statements made by his wife. I don't recall the exact quote, but in so many words she expressed her frustration with African-Americans for not getting behind him. Isn't that racist? Should blacks vote for him simply because he is black?

I'm shocked to see you mention Ron Paul. I've never sent any politician money until this year. I sent Ron Paul $100. I vote conservative and he seems to be the only conservative running. I think he makes a lot of sense and has a 20 year long record of voting for the things he believes in. What you see is what you get with him. I don't agree with him on everything, (legalizing drugs), but he stands for what he believes.

It is frustrating to see Hillary and Rudy G try to reinvent themselves and pretend they are something different than their history shows.

mstearne said...

Obama is more experienced than Hillary Clinton and many others. But as he puts it the leaders of this war(Rumsfeld, Cheney) have some of the best resumes in D.C. and that hasn't been the most helpful. Bill Richardson is the most experienced candidate on either side.

Ron Paul is the only Republican speaking the will of the 70% of Americans that don't support the war. I also don't agree with him on everything like ending the Department of Education but he is a libertarian after all.

Michelle Obama's comments were wishful thinking at best and her opinion at worst. Considering there have been only 5 African-American senators in the U.S. history and 0 African-American Presidents it's clear that African-Americans do not vote according to racial lines.

Brent Crouch said...

"But as he puts it the leaders of this war(Rumsfeld, Cheney) have some of the best resumes in D.C. and that hasn't been the most helpful."

I can't argue with you on this one.

I believe our system of government was setup so that ordinary people would be able to go to Washington, serve a term and then return home to previous careers. Our process has been hijacked by career politicians that serve their own interest and not the interest of the people.

I find it interesting that you who are in support of Obama would share some interest in Ron Paul. Ron Paul is not going to walk away from this thing. He is going to run as a third party canidate and siphon away the Republican vote.

There has been speculation that there are a lot of disenfranchised democrats that will vote for him as well. I didn't think this was the case, but your comments have me rethinking that.


I realize Ron Paul has no chance, but I really like him for demonstrating his true beliefs. I'm also in support of his doing away with the Department of Education and other federal institutions. These issues can be taken care of by the states. The federal government should only handle the issues that states can't or shouldn't like the military.

Michelle Obama's comments may have been wishful and untrue, but according to the standard that is required of others they are also racist. If Sean Hannity announced all white people should vote for Rudy G because he is white, there'd be a public outcry. It's funny how we don't hold everyone to the same standard.

For God's sake, Trent Lott was nearly kicked out of Senate for trying to make an old man, who was a lifelong Democrat, feel good on his birthday.

Power to the people.

"I find it interesting that you who are in support of Obama would share some interest in Ron Paul."

Not really, they are both honest and speak their mind (Ron Paul maybe more so). I (and most people, I would think) are interested in people first, policy second. That's why so many people would "like to have a beer" with President Bush. Not to say I would vote for Ron Paul but Ross Perot had good points also.

"Ron Paul is not going to walk away from this thing. He is going to run as a third party canidate and siphon away the Republican vote."

That's great for Democrats! The evangelicals are talking about splitting away also because of religious reasons. I doubt Ron Paul's views on religion would get the evangelicals behind him. :-)

"There has been speculation that there are a lot of disenfranchised democrats that will vote for him as well. I didn't think this was the case, but your comments have me rethinking that."

I'm not a disenfranchised Democrat so I don't know. I am just frustrated by the testicle size of many Democrats :-).

"I realize Ron Paul has no chance, but I really like him for demonstrating his true beliefs."

Everyone does. Obama does the same and maybe you see such a difference because you believe Obama would create a larger government or something, but I might remind you that government has always gotten bigger under Republicans. The current Republican creating the largest government so far.

"If Sean Hannity announced all white people should vote for Rudy G because he is white, there'd be a public outcry. It's funny how we don't hold everyone to the same standard."

Mrs. Obama didn't say Black people must vote for Obama, she said she hopes they do. The RNC Chairmen have said the same things, "GOP Plans More Outreach to Blacks, Mehlman Says" ( http://tinyurl.com/yrfjgn ). Maybe because Mrs. Obama is Black she's not allow to say that but if Rudy said, "I think the evangelicals will wake up and vote for the Republican candidate." I don't think there would be a controversy. If Mrs. Obama was really basing her strategy on race she would say, "I hope no Black people vote for Barack and ALL the White people do." That would work out better.

Furthermore, I might point out the Republican's Southern Strategy (http://tinyurl.com/5bcvq) which made it the policy of the Republican party to get Whites to vote on their side and force Blacks to the Democrats.

"For God's sake, Trent Lott was nearly kicked out of Senate for trying to make an old man, who was a lifelong Democrat, feel good on his birthday."

That "old man" ( http://tinyurl.com/yazsj4 ) was a Democrat for 10 years and a Republican for 39 years. It's funny you bring up Strom Thurmond when talking about racial politics. The reason why Lott's comments were so controversial is because Thurmond ran as a Dixiecrat which was a party BASED on a pro-segregation platform which by definition asked White people to vote for the White candidate.

Brent Crouch said...

mstearne,

I've really enjoyed talking to you. You deal in facts and have a logical point of view.

I spend a lot of time watching the talking head shows and listening to talk radio. When there are democrats that call the show, more times than not they are all emotion and can't provide any facts to support their point of view. If I had $1 for every Hillary supporter that called the Sean Hannity show and mentioned, "she is a woman" when asked what made Hillary uniquely qualified to be President, I'd buy that 14 million dollar house that Hammer built.

You've been a breath of fresh air and have given me some things to consider.

"The current Republican creating the largest government so far."

I can't argue with that. I've voted for GB twice. He hasn't been the conservative he has pretended to be. I believe in a country where the government only takes care of the least among us and offers them the tools to take care of themselves.

GB created more entitlements than Bill Clinton every thought of. This is becoming standard practice among all politicians and is only a legal way to buy votes.

Hillary wants to give us free healthcare, baby bonds, and contribute to our 401-K. Who is going to pay for that? Those of us that work for a living. The poor don't pay income taxes and the ultra super rich no legal ways to avoid them. When Ross Perot released his tax returns when running for President he made in the neighborhood of $200 million dollars and paid $14 million in taxes. That's not even 10%! That's pretty good considering the smallest tax rate was 15%.


"Mrs. Obama didn't say Black people must vote for Obama, she said she hopes they do. The RNC Chairmen have said the same things, "GOP Plans More Outreach to Blacks, Mehlman Says" ( http://tinyurl.com/yrfjgn ). Maybe because Mrs. Obama is Black she's not allow to say that"

Don't spin me on this one. I believe Mrs. Obama stated Hillary's support by blacks wouldn't hold and that blacks WOULD wake up and vote for her husband. http://tinyurl.com/3ye7k8 It sounds like the implication is she expects blacks will vote for him because he is black. I'd love to vote for Colin Powell or Dr. Rice for President. But if one of their spouse's made a statement like that, I'd still consider it a turn off and borderline racism.

There is a difference between the GOP looking around and asking why don't we have more people of color in the party and seeking to connect with them. It'd be an entirely different thing if they started running black candidates for the sole reason that they are black for the expected purpose of attracting the black vote. That would be sick as well.

"but if Rudy said, "I think the evangelicals will wake up and vote for the Republican candidate." I don't think there would be a controversy."

Probably not, but if he were running against Obama and stated "white people will wake up" you know there would be a public outcry and rightfully so. Surely we can agree what is good for one, is good for all.

"If Mrs. Obama was really basing her strategy on race she would say, "I hope no Black people vote for Barack and ALL the White people do." That would work out better."

I don't think she is basing her entire strategy on race, but it is clear she is basing a portion of it on race. Her comments are sick if you ask me.

"Furthermore, I might point out the Republican's Southern Strategy (http://tinyurl.com/5bcvq) which made it the policy of the Republican party to get Whites to vote on their side and force Blacks to the Democrats."

That interview with Nixon was in 1970. I wasn't even born then. Only a few years earlier, Hammer and me would have had separate water fountains.

I believe the strategy relied on racists democrats. The belief was if more blacks registered as Democrats, there'd be enough racists white democrats that would turn to the Republican party. Sick if you ask me.


"That "old man" ( http://tinyurl.com/yazsj4 ) was a Democrat for 10 years and a Republican for 39 years. It's funny you bring up Strom Thurmond when talking about racial politics. The reason why Lott's comments were so controversial is because Thurmond ran as a Dixiecrat which was a party BASED on a pro-segregation platform which by definition asked White people to vote for the White candidate."

Thanks for the correction on Strom Thurmond. My point on him has little to do with his history. He ran as a segregationist in 1948 and became a Democrat from 1956 - 1964. I stand corrected. These issues are not in dispute.

What is in dispute is the fact that one Senator tried to be nice to another and was relived of his job. He clearly meant nothing racist by his comment. But in your words, Republicans didn't have the testes to stand up for what is right and that was that. I got so sick of hearing about it on the news day in and day out.

Now you have Mrs. Obama making a statement that is least borderline racists and no one says a word. That is my point.

I love and respect people of all colors. I think Dr. King was one of the greatest people that ever lived. I just think we should do away with the double standard.
