John Edwards is sooooo busted!

What's up with John Edwards, and why isn't the MSM covering it? The National Enquirer has been relentlessly investigating Edwards since last year, when they outed Edwards' baby momma (Rielle Hunter) and love child. Edwards was able to lie his way out of that one, with the help of his friends, but this time he was caught with his pants down. Well, not really, but probably not far from it.
Hey John, you scumbag, how's the wife doing with her battle against cancer.

This guy was being talked about as a possible vice presidential candidate just a few short weeks ago. And now that there is basically confirmation of his alleged philandering and the alleged resultant love child, the main stream media is covering for him by not covering the story! It's not terribly surprising though, because the story might make Dems look bad, so of course it must be buried. (Too bad guys, the word is getting out anyway)

Kudos to the National Enquirer for staying on the story.

Obama Goes Green - Using Recycled Speech

It appears that Obama's speech writers got a bit of inspiration from Bono. Rush Limbaugh has dug up audio of Bono that's eerily similar to the words Obama spoke in Berlin. The plagiarists are sooo busted.

And then Obama has the "audacity" to blow off a scheduled visit to our wounded soldiers at the Landstuhl Medical Center and Ramstein, Germany. It turns out that the media and their cameras are not allowed in military installations, so since he couldn't turn the visit into a photo op, it wasn't worth his time.
This guy is a real piece of work.

This is Obama's Moment? Really?

"This is the moment"? Is that the best BH Obama can do to shoot for a memorable line from his speech in Berlin today? Lame. What a load of hooey he was spewing, more like an Obama pep rally...good thing Germans can't vote. It sounded as if Mr "Citizen of the World" wants to be Mr President of the World. I want a citizen of the United States who wants to be President of the United States., not to turn it into some Euro-style socialist utopia.

And what's the deal with him "apologizing" for our country. Screw him...he doesn't speak for me. This country has done more good than ANY other and it's people are the most generous on the planet, even in challenging economic times.

Funny, ALLLL this attention he's getting, but no bump in the polls, still nearly even-steven, within the margin of error. The same way it has looked for some weeks now. If I were a bettin' man, I'd that bet BH Obama's honeymoon with America will be over by the time the polls open in November. People will get wise to his schtick, tired of his position-shifting, and resentful that he already presumes he is President, and then will pull the lever for McCain.

Fantasy Debate - Obama vs Miss South Carolina

A fantasy debate I'd like to see is Obama vs Miss South Carolina, Lauren Caitlin, because they seem so evenly matched with their off-the-cuff answers. Terry Moran of ABC is asking the questions:

MORAN: Mr Obama, if you had to do it over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?

OBAMA: No, because, I -- I -- I -- eh -- I -- Keep in mind that -- that --

MORAN: You wouldn't?

OBAMA: Uh, eh, um, well -- These kinds of hypotheticals are very difficult. You know, hindsight is 20/20. But I think that w-what I am absolutely convinced of is that, uh, at that time, we had to change the political debate because the view of the, uh (pause), Bush administration at that time was one that I disagreed with.

MORAN: "Lauren, same question..."

CAITLIN: "I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uhmm, some people out there in our nation don't have maps and uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uhhh, our education over here in the US should help the U.S., umh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us."

New York Times - not fit to wrap fish

Can the New York Times get any more blatant about their Obamabias? Obama submits an op-ed piece about his plans for Iraq & Afghanistan, and the NYT prints it. Fine.

A few days later, John McCain submits his rebuttal as well as a detail of his plans for the regions. And they reject it, and send it back with notes to rewrite it to be more like Obama's!

In the past, they have printed pieces from Yassir Arafat and Hamas, but they are rejecting the Republican presidential candidate's submission?! Unbelievable!

R.I.P. Tony Snow

Tony Snow Funeral Held in Washington

A great and wise man has been silenced way too early in life. Tony Snow excelled at everything he did, from being a political FOX NEWS TV and radio commentator, to a Presidential Press Secretary with a wry sense of humor, to being a multi-talented musician, to being a great Dad to his children. And he did it all with an amazing optimism, even while battling the disease that claimed his life all too early.

He died of colon cancer over the weekend and was buried today, in a ceremony that was attended by President Bush and many political luminaries and White House correspondents.

An Oilman with a Plan

It's refreshing to finally see an oilman coming forward with an energy plan, and it's not about oil...other than reducing our dependence on foreign oil. I don't know too much about Texas oilman T Boone Pickens, but I'm liking what I've seen from him over the last year. He just released My Plan to Escape the Grip of Foreign Oil, which seems like a sensible start to develop wind farms, but I'm wondering why he doesn't mention nuclear energy. I like the idea of wind energy, but we should still lift the obstacles to building nuclear power plants, developing coal sands technology, and drilling in ANWR and offshore.

Right now, our dependence on foreign oil is our Achille's Tendon, and you know what happens when that tendon is cut.

God Bless the USA!

Hello World.

And Happy Independence Day USA!

Way back on April 13, 2008, Bloomberg noted that "'Restless’ Independents, Not Parties, May Select U.S. President". That was almost 3 months ago, and the election is now exactly 4 months away, so I figured I better get busy.

This is a very important election to the future of the United States, made even more so because the leadership of both major political parties are moving in disturbing and sometimes even dangerous directions. This will be a place for this restless independent to put in my two cents on that, and whatever else comes to mind.

But now, I'm going down to the Sarasota waterfront to see the power boats in town for the Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix, eat some barbeque, listen to some music, drink some beer, watch the fireworks, be proud of our country, and think about what today means.

God Bless the USA!
