Tonight On The Randi Rhodes Show

In 2004 campaigning for his second term, Bush was interviewed by Matt Lauer.  Speaking about the “War on Terror” Bush said “I don’t think we can win IT”.
You can watch ALL of the empty campaign claims made by Bush and see that McCain is more of the Exact Same on the Economy and job creation as well as the War on Terror or you can fast forward to 5 and half minutes in and hear Bush opine about “The War on Terror”.  Bush – “I don’t think you can win IT”

WATCH

But that doesn’t stop McSame from saying he can “win it” and ONLY HE can “win it”.

In the process of making that empty campaign claim, he keeps accusing Obama of Treason, saying Obama “doesn’t care if America wins or loses” but dares to say he’s simply questioning Obama’s Judgment?  Really?  This is disgusting. WATCH

How do you fight a tactic anyway?  Isn’t it a CRIME when a person blows stuff up?  Shouldn’t this be a function of Law Enforcement and not the awesome American Military Machine?

Speaking of the Awesome Military Machine.  It’s broken.  Really over stretched and short on personnel.
Don’t believe me listen to General David Lute.

Conclusion: We will need a DRAFT!  Apparently McCain doesn’t disagree.

At a “Town Hall Meeting” an Air Force Mom told McCain we won’t be able “to follow Osama Bin Laden to the gates of hell without a draft” McCain said “I don’t disagree with anything you said”

Our military has granted 65% more “Moral Waivers” for people with criminal records, no high school diploma and certain disabilities to meet recruiting requirements.  Still we’re short because we are competing with PRIVATE CONTRACTORS who are looking to recruit from the SAME POOL as the US Military does.  Blackwater for example issued 125,000 “Moral Waivers”

Still the smear and fear seems to be working.  Obama’s lead has been cut in half with 13% still undecided. http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/ The “TV people” are now talking about Hillary being the “game changer” Obama needs.  What do you think?

And one last thing:

BOOKS BOUGHT IN BULK.  Mann Coulter’s got a new book and it is worth EXACTLY WHAT YOU PAY FOR IT.  Nothing!  Here’s just one place where her book was bought in bulk and given away for free.

The smear machine rolls on.   Let’s take her wheels off
Here’s the column

Here’s the debunk on Michelle Obama’s letter.  It doesn’t say Partial Birth Abortion is a constitutionally protected right.  It says MEDICAL RECORDS ARE PRIVATE and are protected.

Here’s Ann’s source!  The same wacko Jill Stanek who was FIRED from CHRIST Hospital for this stuff.

Ann also says we didn’t need a 13th Amendment banning SLAVERY because SLAVERY didn’t appear in the Constitution.
The Supreme Court RULED that Dred Scott was 3/5ths of a MAN.

HERE’S THE SAD HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES PRIOR TO THE 13TH AMENDMENT

  • Missouri Compromise (1820)
    In an effort to preserve the balance of power in Congress between slave and free states, The Missouri Compromise was passed in 1820 admitting Missouri as a slave state and Maine as a free state.
  • Compromise of 1850 (1850)
    The Compromise of 1850 consists of five laws passed in September of 1850 that dealt with the issue of slavery. In 1849 California requested permission to enter the Union as a free state, potentially upsetting the balance between the free and slave states in the U.S. Senate.
  • Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854)
    The Kansas-Nebraska Act repealed the Missouri Compromise, allowing slavery in the territory north of the 36° 30´ latitude. Introduced by Senator Stephen Douglas of Illinois, the Kansas-Nebraska Act stipulated that the issue of slavery would be decided by the residents’ of each territory, a concept known as popular sovereignty.
  • Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857)
    The Supreme Court decision Dred Scott v. Sandford was issued on March 6, 1857. Delivered by Chief Justice Roger Taney, this opinion declared that slaves were not citizens of the United States and could not sue in Federal courts. In addition, this decision declared that the Missouri Compromise was unconstitutional and that congress did not have the authority to prohibit slavery in the territories.
  • Emancipation Proclamation (1863)
    Issued by Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, the Emancipation Proclamation declared “all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” Although the Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery, it did change the basic character of the Civil War.
  • 13th Amendment to the Constitution (1865)
    The 13th Amendment to the Constitution declared that “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude…shall exist within the United States.” Formally abolishing slavery in the United States, the 13th Amendment was passed by the Congress on January 31, 1865, and ratified by the states on December 6, 1865.
  • 14th Amendment to the Constitution (1868)
    The 14th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified on July 28, 1868, and granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States,” which included former slaves recently freed. In addition, it forbids states from denying any person “life, liberty or property, without due process of law” or to “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of its laws.”
  • 15th Amendment to the Constitution (1870)
    The 15th Amendment to the Constitution granted African American men the right to vote by declaring that the “right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” Although ratified on February 3, 1870, the promise of the 15th Amendment would not be fully realized for almost a century.
