    Things are pretty bad now that is for sure. Another thing that is for sure is that after a few years of Obamanation it will be even worse.

    Anyone who tries to make themselves heroes when they're not WILL NOT get my vote. I'm sorry, the democratic ticket with Biden is not an American ticket.

    Actually, where we're at is a function of policies set down and implemented by the Clinton administration and a Democrat Congress, establishing mandates for providing mortgages to people who were otherwise unqualified to secure them and unable to repay them and penalizing those who expressed reluctance to comply.

    As for Iraq ("Iraq didn't attack us!" seems to be the cry), the fact is that Saddam ran a heinous, genocidal government that murdered thousands of his own people, wholesale. Even your buddy Obama stated last night that he'd intercede where genocide was being practiced, while with his other face talking about how we have no business in Iraq. As for them not having attacked us portion of the argument, it's been widely distributed already: Germany didn't attack us in WWII - Japan did (Democrat President); Korea didn't attack us (Democrat President); Vietnam didn't attack us (Democrat President); Bosnia didn't attack us (Democrat President); Kosovo didn't attack us (Democrat President). There are probably others, but I'm tired...

    On the other hand, and not for nothin' (as we like to say in New Jersey), but IF Scriptures are to be believed, and IF Obama is the Antichrist, as some believe, then there's no way he CAN'T get elected!

    Fact is the person we need to run the country isn't running currently. I don't know who he or she is . . . I'd like to hear from Zell Miller for example . . . but they're not running. So while I think the Hell Fires will be a bit cooler under McCain than Obama ("I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."), I still wish there were another choice.

    One man's opinion...

    1. Forced Down by Terrorists?

    "If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where (Usama) bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me. Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are," Biden said at a campaign stop in Baltimore last week.

    Sen. John Kerry, however, set the record straight, telling the Associated Press that the helicopter was "forced down" by a snowstorm.

    "It went pretty blind, pretty fast and we were around some pretty dangerous ridges," Kerry said. "So the pilot exercised his judgment that we were better off putting down there, and we all agreed."

    2. FDR Did What?

    "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed," Biden told the CBS Evening News on Sept. 22.

    But Herbert Hoover was president in October 1929 when the stock market crashed. FDR wasn't elected until 1932, and television made its debut a decade later, in 1939.

    3. That's a Terrible Ad!

    When asked by CBS on Sept. 22 how he felt about an Obama campaign ad that made fun of John McCain's inability to use a computer, Biden replied that he thought it was "terrible."

    "I didn't know we did it," he said, adding that he wouldn't have approved the ad, but defended Obama's decision to approve it. "The answer is I don't think anything was intentional about that. They were trying to make another point," he said.

    4. Working in Coal Mine

    "Hope you won't hold it against me, but I am a hard coal miner -- anthracite coal, Scranton, Pennsylvania, that's where I was born and raised," Biden said to mine workers in Virginia on Sept. 20.

    While his great-grandfather was a mining engineer, his father ran a Delaware car dealership and worked in the oil business. His campaign tried to spin the comments as a joke.

    5. "No Coal Plants in America!"

    On Sept. 17 at a campaign stop in Maumee, Ohio, Biden told an environmentalist that the Democrats don't support clean coal. "We're not supporting clean coal," he said.

    But they do. Obama said his administration will "enter into public private partnerships to develop five 'first-of-a-kind' commercial scale coal-fired plants with clean carbon capture and sequestration technology."

    Biden had criticized China for building "two dirty coal plants" every week and polluting the United States. "No coal plants in America," he said. "If they're going to build them over there, make them clean, because they're killing you."

    6. He Should Have Picked Hillary

    At a campaign stop in Nashua, N.H., on Sept. 10, Biden said Obama may have been better off had he picked Hillary Clinton to be his running mate.

    "Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Let's get that straight," he said. "She's a truly close personal friend; she is qualified to be president of the United States of America. She's easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America and quite frankly it might have been a better pick than me, but she is first-rate."

    7. You in the Wheelchair, Get Up!

    On the campaign train in Columbia, Mo., on Sept. 9, Biden asked State Sen. Chuck Graham to stand up for the crowd. "Stand up Chuck let me see you," Biden said to Graham, who is in a wheelchair. "Oh, God love you, what I am talking about. You're making everybody else stand up though, aren't you pal." Biden then asked everyone in the room to stand up for Graham.

    8. Whose Campaign is it Anyway?

    On Aug. 23, after Obama announced that he had chosen the Delaware senator as his running mate, Biden slipped and called him "Barack America."

    On Sept. 3 at a campaign stop in Fort Myers, Fla., Biden referred to the future "Biden Administration," which he quickly corrected to an "Obama-Biden Administration."

    "Believe me, that wasn't a Freudian slip," Biden said. "Oh Lordy day, I tell ya."

    9. Shot at Seven Times in Iraq?

    Biden said in a CNN/YouTube debate on July 23, 2007, that he was shot at seven times inside Iraq's Green Zone.

    Two weeks later, however, he amended his story, telling The Hill newspaper, "I was near where a shot landed." He said a shot landed outside the building in the Green Zone where he and another senator spent the night in December 2005. While they were shaving in the morning, the building shook.

    "No one got up and ran from the room-it wasn't that kind of thing," Biden told the Hill. "It's not like I had someone holding a gun to my head."

    10. So Fresh and So Clean

    When talking about his eventual running mate when they were still competing for the Democratic presidential nomination in January 2007, Biden blundered when talking about Sen. Barack Obama to the New York Observer.

    "I mean, you got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."

    He quickly retracted the statement, explaining, "Barack Obama is probably the most exciting candidate that the Democratic or Republican Party has produced at least since I've been around," he said in a conference call a few days later. "And he's fresh. He's new. He's smart. He's insightful. And I really regret that some have taken totally out of context my use of the world 'clean.'"

    11. Biden on Race

    In June 2006, at the outset of a run for the presidency, Biden joked on camera, "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

    When the video hit YouTube the next month, Biden's office defended him, saying, "The point Senator Biden was making is that there has been a vibrant Indian-American community in Delaware for decades."

    12. Grandson of a Coal Miner?

    Bidents 1988 presidential bid imploded when it was revealed he was lifting parts of his stump speech -- and parts of his supposed family history -- from a speech given by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.

    Biden said he was the first in his family to go to college. He wasn't. He said he was the grandson of a coal miner who "would come up [from the mines] after 12 hours and play football."

    While Biden did attribute statements to Kinnock several times, in a Democratic debate at the Iowa State Fair on Aug. 23, 1987, he didn't give Kinnock credit when he plagiarized his speech. It was also revealed that Biden plagiarized a paper in law school. That tape kicked off the controversy that sunk his campaign.

  7. List

    The Obama camp keeps saying that Palin is not qualified to be the vice-president. How does Obama's 143 days as a junior senator from Illinois qualify him to be president? Can you go to work for McDonald's and 143 days later be the manager of the store or a regional manager? Can you sign on with the Arizona Diamondbacks and 143 days later be the General Manager of the team? Of course not! Obama's 143 days in the Senate, combined with his anti-gun stance, kill him in my book. McCain is the only one running who actually fought for this country, and Palin is very pro-gun. McCain/Palin in '08!!

    I'm not endorsing Obama here, but let's not forget that in addition to his time in the Senate, he has seven years of experience serving in the legislature of America's fifth largest state, as well as twelve years experience teaching constitutional law at one of America's elite law schools, the University of Chicago. On its face, that's a lot more impressive than Palin's experience as mayor of a town of 7,000 residents and as governor of a state with slightly more than 600,000.
