Should Style Trump Substance?
Tuesday, February 5, 2008 at 10:59PM
We had eight years of Bill Clinton with style and no substance. We had eight years of George W. Bush with neither style nor substance. He mumbled and stumbled every time he needed to speak. He never got better. He did Dad’s bidding and finished the job Dad left undone in Iraq. That’s it. No more. He hadn’t insulted us enough, so he tried to lease key ports to Dubai then fired Rumsfield the day after he turned the house and senate over to the Democrats. He increased the size of government raised the deficit and destroyed the dollar. Wow George, that’s quite a job. Wait, on the way out let’s wreck the economy.

Now we have a love affair with Obama. Is it no wonder? The man can speak, he can answer questions,and he can look smooth in the process. This is another credit we can give W. We are so desperate as a county to have someone we can be proud of as president, we don’t even care about experience, credibility, platform, or anything else that pertains to substance. We are willing to put a socialist in as president if he makes good speeches.

Thanks to George, today I believe style does trump substance. We will elect Obama, then try to survive four years while government grows, taxes increase, health care is socialized, business is taxed for the good of illegal aliens, and all those wonderful dreams we had while intoxicated by Obama’s charm are shattered as we see how really ill prepared he is for the job.

I was part of an organization where style trumped substance. It’s gone. A $40 Billion dollar company, gone. All senior people were clones of the main man. None had ever gotten results, just looked good trying. Diversity was more important than meeting profit goals. Excuses were well explained. It’s what happens when glib is God. Better strap it down, the USA may be headed for another four years of not getting anything done.

The second was written August 6,2008 expressing concern regarding Obama’s true penchant for bringing socialism to this country.

Obama and Chairman Mao Think Alike
Wednesday, August 6, 2008 at 03:03PM
Do we want to try the old ideas of Chairman Mao in America? Look how well it worked for Mao in China. We are being passed as the world’s economic leader by a China with a version of capitalism.

Obama wants to run this country under the old Chinese model. One example, he wants to tax Big Oil and give the money to needy Americans. Each needy American(by his definition) will receive $1,000 to help with high gasoline prices. He wants to raise taxes on the upper income Americans, again by his definition, and give that to the less fortunate. He wants national health care run by the government. He wants higher capital gains taxes. He wants bigger government. He wants the cap and trade tax, the biggest tax increase in the history of man. He wants more regulation to control big business.

Senator Obama has a long history of learning at the knees of avowed Marxist and Socialist experts. He is beyond a closet socialist.

If elected, Senator Obama will destroy America. He is ill prepared for the job. He is like a wind-up toy, give him a script and he will produce a brilliant presentation. He is totally void of common sense and real-world experience. He is devoted to income redistribution and rampant socialism for America.

He will have a Democratic congress at his disposal with a Speaker of the House and Senate Majority leader to do his bidding. He can move us down the road very quickly to his version of socialism. He believes the American system is broken. His wife did not have a slip of the lip when she made the statement about the for the first time she was proud of her country. This is long-term pillow talk.

We are on the brink of electing the most dangerous man we could ever elect president in a very perilous time.

Step out and do whatever you can to keep this from happening. At each passing day we see more and more of the real Obama. Living in his version of communist China is not my idea of a good idea. I’m not giving you the chicken little crap, I rarely agree with the Reverend Jesse Jackson, but I do think he was on to something with this guy.

It is sad how much of this has come true. We can’t give this man another four years to do his damage. Do your part to get him fired.
