Barack Your Vote

Barack Obama and Joe Biden in Dublin OH

Ding. Ding. Ding. Well, folks. Round III is complete, and both Obama and McCain are sitting in their corners, awaiting the results of this bout. If this was a boxing match, I’d have to relate Obama to Muhammad Ali and McCain to that of Mike Tyson (the Mike Tyson towards the end of his career, that is).

Check it out. Like Ali, Obama was calm, cool, and collected. While McCain simply tried to throw haymakers and low blows (no, he didn’t try to bite his ear), Obama took everything in stride, and just floated ‘like a butterfly’, landing consistent jab after jab after jab, only to relinquish monstrous counter punches when McCain tried miserably to accuse Barack of having terrorist affiliations, etc.

Barack was pummeling McCain with…now brace yourselves….FACTS. Hmmm, that’s an interesting tactic, Mr. Obama. You mean you’re not just gonna sit there like a corpse and regurgitate nonsensical, conjured up lies about what your opponent is not doing, but rather tell us what your plan is? A novel concept, Barack. I dig it. I think the American people will be stunned by the honesty and willingness to be a man and tell it like it is instead of resorting to underhanded dirty trickery and mendacious accusations, but that’s just outlook. Maybe America isn’t ready for a truthful president, after all, we’ve been lied to by Bush for 8 years now.

Now, I hope that you have noted my sarcasm throughout this, but for those of you who didn’t get that, I’m willing to bet my collection of Celtics memorabilia that you’re voting for McCan’t and Mrs. Maverick. Am I the only one that saw McCan’t sitting in that chair as if his bottom half was in a casket. The potential (if elected) Mr. ‘One-heartbeat-away-from-Palin-as-President’ Republican sat there, trying his best to speak like a human as a opposed to a programmed robot. Instead, would scoff and breathe so ridiculously into the microphone, I had to check outdoors to see if it was just the wind. In a nutshell, Obama flattered, while MCan’t flustered.

OK – let’s talk health care. This is probably the only question McCan’t answered. His ‘plan’ is to give everyone a voucher for $5k so they can get whatever health care they need. That sounds reasonable, but considering most health care plans are more than that, that $5k would maybe only cover someone of relatively young age who is currently in good health. On the flip-side, my main man Barack (yeah, we’re on a first name basis now) is proposing a health care plan that would let you keep what you have now, but that you would..get this…PAY LESS; and in the event that you don’t have coverage, you’d get coverage by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Wow, what a concept. The government helping its people. The choice is clear, people – Obama. Obama. Obama.

The best part of the debate, however, was when the topic turned to the quality choices of their respective running mates. Obama spoke beautifully, eloquently, and articulately about Joe Biden, citing his stellar resume, his plans, etc. The shear beauty was that Barack never even mentioned Mrs. Maverick’s name – probably because comparing Biden and Mrs. Maverick is like comparing Michael Jordan to the captain of an adult men’s basketball league. No contest. If you saw this, you had to revel in its comedic genius, considering the fact that while McCan’t was praising Mrs. Maverick, he couldn’t help continually blink his eyes and make other facial twitches – classic cases of insincerity.

Now, I love a good saga, but enough is enough. Let’s finish this off, shall we? According to polls, Obama is ahead, but he still NEEDS YOUR HELP. So, make sure you’re registered, and get out there and VOTE OBAMA. You’ll be glad you did.

Need any more help? Not sure which way to go? Well, at least there’s one easy choice. Log on to 104Vote.com for related articles on the upcoming election, as well as simple and easy ways to accommodate all your needs!

Last Presidential Debate! Who hates joe plumber more?

Posted by 104Inc.com on October 16, 2008

Decisions, decisions….what to watch: the Dodgers/Phillies game or the final Presidential debate? 

Okay, I chose the debate.  If I can remember some of the talking points from the previous debates, why can’t the candidates?  Mainly it was McCain who didn’t seem to remember the talking points.  He got some points wrong about the Obama healthcare plan.  These were the same points he got wrong last week.  Then, he looked surprised when he was corrected by Obama for the second time.

The CNN coverage featured a split screen showing each candidate and that just wasn’t good for McCain.  Maybe he suffers from the same curse as George W. Bush….kind of a superior look on his face.  Obama generally looked like he was either paying attention to McCain as he spoke or he was taking notes.  McCain’s look seemed to say “this guy doesn’t know anything”.  Which may be true, but the look didn’t serve him well.

McCain seemed to start off well, but then went downhill.  He seemed to fall into trap that Obama set and ended up looking whiney about the campaign ads and talking about Bill Ayers. 

McCain’s biggest problem seems to be the economy.  Probably doesn’t matter who the Republicans ran as their candidate for president.  If the economy was in decent shape, McCain might have a chance.  His poll numbers have done nothing but trend down since the debates began. Part of the problem is his performance, but the party that is in power gets to take credit for a good economy or the blame for a bad economy.  It might not be right, but that is the way it is.

At least you can count on 104inc.com to give you unbiased information.

So You Still Don’t Know Who to Vote For, Huh?

Posted by 104Inc.com on October 9, 2008

US Senator Barack Obama campaigning in New Ham...

Image via Wikipedia

Webster’s dictionary defines debate as “a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints.”

Now, either Mr. Webster was hallucinating when he defined that word, or Sarah “Pail In Comparison” Palin and John “I-have-no-substance-so-let-me-just-talk-smack-on-Obama” McCain have taken the liberty of redefining the word before our very eyes.

It’s a funny thing, really. After watching the Vice Presidential and Presidential debates, I saw one thing that got me thinking. McCain and Palin do belong together, but they’re on the wrong network, and on the wrong platform. Considering that neither of them could answer a question with a real answer to save their lives, and considering all the ‘dancing’ they do around each question, they’d be better served on Dancing With the Stars. However, I must admit that McCain has impressed me greatly – for a man with his physical ailments, barely able to raise his hands and walk fluidly, he sure can groove – who said white men can’t dance, huh?

On the flip-side, you have the stellar, stoic, and confident Obama who looks in the eye of the camera, in the eye of the American people, and instills confidence in us, instead of instilling further fear that we will all one day have to flee to neighboring countries and watch the USA crumble into oblivion. Obama will make a change, people!

So, you still don’t know who to vote for, huh? Well, let me ease this burden for you. We spend, and have been spending $10,000,000,000 a month in Iraq for the past several years. Did you get that? Not $10,000, not $10,000,000, but TEN BILLION DOLLARS A MONTH IN IRAQ. Now, don’t you think that TEN BILLION DOLLARS would be better suited coming back into our economy? I thought so.Where is Bin Laden? Where is Al-Qaida? They sure as hell aren’t in Iraq. They’re in Afghanistan, parts of Pakistan, and God knows where, yet we’re still up in Iraq’s kool-aid. What gives? Basically, the Republicans have taken each and every consumer, bent them over, handled their business, and didn’t even have the common courtesy to give a reach-around.

Finally, I’ll leave you with this. McCain will give a huge tax break to those who make over $200,000/year, while the rest of us John. Q.Taxpayers (not Joe Six-Packs: a retarded euphemism) have to tighten our wallets. On the other hand, Obama will raise taxes only for those who make the $200,000/year, while the remaining 95% of the population won’t see any increase. Now, I know it’s odd to see a politician display common sense and present an actual plan to benefit this country, but I tell you, it’s either Obama or nothing.

Bottom line:

McCain = The rich get richer, we stay in Iraq fighting a meaningless war, spending billions monthly while the country continues in its worst recession since 1929.

Obama = The country is assisted. Taxpayers get a break. The economy gets boosted, and we’re on our way to the international supremacy we once possessed.

Anyone who votes for McCain might as well jump on the first ship, plane, train, helicopter, pigeon, or anything else that moves out of the country

Well, ladies and gentleman, the magic number is now 35. 35 days until election day. Where do you stand? Where should you stand? Well, I’ll tell you one thing. Anyone who votes for McCain might as well jump on the first ship, plane, train, helicopter, pigeon, or anything else that moves out of the country. Now, don’t get me wrong. Bush III, err…McCain is a solid guy. A war veteran, former POW – we all know his resume; but the shear fact that his running mate is a nonsensical, Oprah-watching, I-can’t-answer-one-question-with-an-intelligent-answer soccer mom scares the ever-loving crap out of me. Can you imagine if, God forbid, something happened to McCain (72 years old and not in the best condition), then  our Commander in-chief would be….gulp…Sarah Palin. Wow. I just started convulsing at the thought of the Lifetime Channel taking over the television airwaves. OK, now I’m just terrified – and I think I just threw up a little. That woman has no business in office, and McCain would be wise to change his running mate (if that’s possible). Now, for all you reading this that are currently flipping through a thesaurus to come up with every synonym of chauvinist, let me make this perfectly clear. I voted for Hilary Clinton in the primaries because of her experience, intellect, and proven past of the Clinton family. This is not a ‘I am man, hear me roar’ rant. I don’t care if there’s a woman in office, as long as it’s the right one.

Okay, I better change course a bit, because I’m getting fired up. I suppose it’s obvious that I am a democrat and a strong Obama supporter. Now, who reading this saw the debate? And of you who did, who was for McCain, but after seing the debate, feels like Obama may be the better man? I thought so. McCain was flustered, not confident, and was caught multiple times spewing false statistics, to which Sen. Obama called him out ever time.

So, I ask you, Mr. John McCain, what is your master plan? This ‘plan’ we have heard about, but yet know nothing about.  McCain/Palin are in short, a deadly combo… and I don’t mean that as a compliment. He can’t back up anything, she can’t answer a question, and all they do is waste their time bashing Obama and his crew, in hopes that the retarded voters who elected Bush not once, but twice, will vote for them. They hope that the bon-bon popping Oprah fanatics will ‘relate’ to the stultifying nature that is Sarah Palin. I mean, if McCain must use Palin, perhaps he could consider swapping her out with Tina Fey (comedienne from Saturday Night Live); with the uncanny ability to do a spot-on impersonation of Palin, Tina Fey has more substance and actually has the ability to answer questions.

The choice is simple. The choice is ours…and yours. But as for this man, I say the answer is clear….OBAMA or bust.

I’m getting Virgin Atlantic on standby in case McCain/Palin win – I’ll be on the first flight to Prague.

Country First and Change Second Say Republicans

Posted by 104Inc.com on September 4, 2008

You little whippersnapper!Image by sloomis08 via Flickr

Another week, another political convention. This week kicks off the Republican National Convention that will see the nomination of John McCain for President and Sarah Palin for Vice-President, though the schedule is in flux with Hurricane Gustav that has landed in Louisiana.

McCain named Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska, as his running mate on August 29th. She was more or less a surprise pick. She is not well known on the national scene, at least from a media perspective.

The first day of the convention was greatly abbreviated. The only real speakers were Laura Bush and Cindy McCain putting out a call for help for the areas affected by Gustav. They also made announcements of some projects that the Republicans will be undertaking to help victims of Gustav. This fit with the theme for the day: Service.

The theme for Tuesday is Reform. The keynote speech is supposed to be given by Rudy Guiliani. Also, Mike Huckabee, one of McCain’s opponents, and five other current and former Governors will be speaking. There will be several other governors speaking over the remaining days.

Wednesday the theme will be Prosperity. Palin will be speaking that night and it will give her a chance to let America know her. Also speaking will be Mitt Romney, Meg Whitman, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, and possibly Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. It is kind of odd though that the Republican website for the convention hasn’t been updated with Palin’s name.

Thursday will be John McCain’s day. The theme for the final day of the convention is Peace. The day is supposed to showcase McCain’s idea of American goodwill and our pursuit of peace in the world. McCain tops off the evening with his acceptance speech. Then the campaign can begin with 60 days until Election Day.

The convention schedule will be very flexible and may change on any day in response to the events of Gustav. One of the places you can keep up with the ever changing world is 104inc.com.
