Conservative Christopher Buckley Endorses Obama

Christopher Buckley, the son of the late conservative icon William F. Buckley, said Friday he's decided to back Barack Obama's White House bid, the first time in his life he will vote Democrat. Earlier this year Buckley praised McCain in a New York Times Op-ed piece, however he now says that McCain is no longer the “real” and “unconventional” man he once admired.
CNN reports, "This campaign has changed John McCain," Buckley wrote. "It has made him inauthentic. A once-first class temperament has become irascible and snarly; his positions change, and lack coherence; he makes unrealistic promises, such as balancing the federal budget 'by the end of my first term.' Who, really, believes that?
"Then there was the self-dramatizing and feckless suspension of his campaign over the financial crisis," Buckley added. "His ninth-inning attack ads are mean-spirited and pointless. And finally, not to belabor it, there was the Palin nomination. What on earth can he have been thinking?"
Buckley just isn't turning to Obama because he's the last resort and there is no other way for him to vote, he believes in Senator Barack Obama. "Obama has in him—I think, despite his sometimes airy-fairy 'We are the people we have been waiting for' silly rhetoric—the potential to be a good, perhaps even great leader. He is, it seems clear enough, what the historical moment seems to be calling for," Buckley wrote.

13 years to the day after OJ Simpson was acquitted of the charges in killing his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman, he was back in court with some serious charges.  I don't know about you, but if I ever got out of what he got out of, whether I was guilty or not, you can bet your bottom dollar that I would never be caught looking at someone wrong.  Simpson was found guilty on all 12 charges, including armed robbery and kidnapping.  The case involved a confrontation at a Las Vegas, Nevada hotel over sports memorabilia.  Simpson said the items were stolen from him.  My prayers are with OJ Simpson, he needs them!

House sends $700 bailout plan to Bush. He signs it. Now, what will be done for the people?

The House and Senate both pass $700 bailout bill. President Bush signs it. The bill is suppose to fix this nations ailing financial system. Ok, now that this bill is passed, please show me the bill that will fix the lives of the American people. Why is the needy bailing out the greedy? I do not quite understand all of this. I really want someone to tell the American people what all of this really means. How is it that Wall Street is being saved, but the American people are still in a very unhealthy situation. Where is our bailout. This $700 bailout plan is straight disrespect. People all around me are loosing their jobs, homes, cars...this is just ridiculous. Hogwash, as Rev. Al Sharpton so eloquently puts it. So $700 billion goes to Wall Street, and not to mention the billions spent in Iraq, $25 billion to airlines, and the billions given to AIG, and all for what? Please tell me what all of this money is for when not one dime will help the citizens of this country. This is not a white or black issue, this is an American issue, and to be quite honest, this government could care less about the American people. What are the minority companies and small businesses receiving? Just a question.

Nothing surprises me anymore, but maybe this will be a shocker to you. On display at the Values Voters Summit, which was hosted by a conservative Christian group, were "Obama Waffles." And, yes I did say "Christian" group.
This picture to the left is not political satire, it is unacceptable racism. The phrasing and the imaging is reminiscent of the hatred and animosity towards African-Americans during the days of slavery and the civil rights movement.
While this product reminds you of the Jim Crow racist images that we saw back in the day, there is one problem. This is not back in the day, it is 2008 and we are still seeing things such as this in the United States of America. I guess some things will never change.
