Weak Sauce About Nothing

Salsa débil sobre nada!

The Audacity of FUCK YEAH!!

As I’ve been saying for the last couple of weeks Clinton is just more of the same bullshit as Bush.  And thank God the people of Iowa saw right through that.  I’m down with Obama, especially as the first viable African American presidential canidate ever, and because he is “endorsed” by Kusinich.  My hope is that when Obama gets the nod from the democratic party that he will tap Kusinich or Richardson for VP (not likely it would probably be Edwards, Clinton in my opinion is unelectable). 

Anyways back on track, the best part of this is that Clinton came in a solid third place, only one point behind Edwards, but a good 6 behind Obama.  That means that other people are ssing through her bullshit too.  Her blatant poll following is what makes her the most disengenuous presidential canadate that I have seen in my life time and that is saying a lot. 

So with the Barak Obama win in Iowa what is next.  Probably a hard race in New Hampshire.  Clinton has a decent lead in the New Hampshire polls, but she had that in Iowa too, until about a week ago.  Does Obama have the time to gain the lead and win NH too?  At this point who knows, but I’m hoping he does.  What sucks is it is one of those things that I feel totally powerless over, and wish I could help him with (hence this post).

 Wake up New Hampshire!  Look through the smile and see that Clinton is more of the same, and not the right answer for our country, it’s time for real change!

My man backs Obama

Word on the street is that Kucinich is lending his support to Obama if he doesn’t have the needed 15% for a second tally in the caucus.  If Kucinich bows out, I throw my support behind Obama too.  I was already thinking that I would support him in the general election if he won the nomination but this honestly seals the deal for me.

Iowa Coming Down

So the caucus is about to start, in just a few hours the real nitty gritty of the 2008 election season will be under way.  I have always been really into politics, but for some reason this election season has me really excited.  It isn’t just how I feel about the issues, or what I think about the canidates, it is the potential for this to really change my life.

My wife and I decided that if Hilary Clinton wins, we move to Canada.  Not because she is a woman, not because her husband was dumb, but because it will be more of the same.  Clinton will change nothing if she is elected, other than the face that we have to look at.  And I’m not living thorough another 8 years of that.

So Iowa is the first look at what my future holds, and that excites me.

Nice one Hilary

Comments were closed on this blog that I lifted this story from, but once again, some evedince that Hilary would be the same thing as Bush but with a bush, savvy.  Hilary sent out pledge cards that said, “I, [blank], pledge to support Hilary Clinton at my precinct caucus on January 14th, 2008.”  Sucks that the caucus is on the 3rd.  What a dope!

Statistical Dead Heat

So Hilary Clinton, and Barak Obama are in a statistical dead heat in both Iowa and New Hampshire.  That makes me happy and nerveous all at the same time.  I just don’t think there will be any change if Clinton is elected.  As a matter of fact I would move somewhere else if she were to be elected.  My wife and I made a pact on moving to Canada, but in light of the recent weather here I think I would be forced to move some where warmer.  But I will move.

Her record indicates that she will provide more of the same.  Strong willed, narrow minded, partisan policies that will cater to her special intrests.  She is all for business, and she seemes to have no problem with war (after all declaring Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization reflects the exact same kind of rhetoric that pushed us into Iraq).  I just can’t get over the idea that she is exactly like the current administration with a slightly better health plan.  What are you going to do different Hilary?

WIth Obama, there are questions about his level of experianace, and the vague nature of his platform.  And I’m kind of agreeing.  It just doesn’t seem like he is solidified as a canadate.  The experiance part I could care less about.  I honestly think it would be a benifit to have someone come in and just be a human doing the job.  But I also wonder if he will fall to the kind of corruption that so many politicians fall into that much quicker because he would be placed in such a large position of power that much faster.  Freaks me out.

So I’m torn, and the one person worth voting for (Dennis Kucinich) is such a long shot that I just don’t think it is going to happen.
