But, does anyone else remember that Hamas is the one that declared the cease-fire over?
If I hear anything more about “pressure mounting on Israel to halt the offensive,” I’m really going to scream! How long would you tolerate non-action from our President if Mexico started randomly bombing San Diego, El Paso or Tuscon?
Hamas is like that short annoying guy in High School who talked smack all day long and then acted surprised when someone twice his size kicked his loud-mouth ass.
I mostly feel sorry for the poor civilians in Gaza. BUT, on the other hand, that’s kinda what you get when you vote for assholes who fire mortars from your child’s preschool.
Its true that many of them are squeezed on both sides and you can’t put it beyond Hamas to bully people into supporting them. I suppose its sort of akin to Democrats and Republicans each having their own set of armed thugs and there being very little to stop them from getting up close and personal with you on the way to the polling station. Amazing.
What’s equally amazing is that the World loved us for approximately a month and a half before everything started being Obama’s fault. The poor guy isn’t even in office yet, and already things are his fault.
There really is no pleasing these bastards. But, damn, that was fast…

Despite initially vowing to take public funds if McCain did, Obama is the first presidential candidate since the campaign finance reforms of the 1970s to accept private donations during the general election.
His tactic turned this election into the single most expensive presidential race ever, with over a billion dollars being spent. That’s a first for our country.
The AP reports that Mr. Obama spent nearly $720 million dollars of the $750 million he raised for his campaign. While McCain was limited to spending only $84 million from September on (because he accepted public funds), Obama spent $315 million during the same period. By the end of the race, he was outspending McCain at a rate of 4 to 1.
Lets put this into perspective a bit: the combined total of George W. Bush AND John Kerry’s bill for both the primary and general election back in 2004 was only $653 million, including federal public financing money.
Yes, that’s right, Obama spent more on this election than the combined total of the candidates for the last presidential election. And, of equal significance, his total spend was well over twice that of McCain’s reported $293 million.
I wonder what would have happened if Obama had done as he had vowed and taken the public funds? Never before in history has a presidential candidate outspent his opponent by such an overwhelming margin.
Amazing that most people continue to say that its “Fatcat Republicans” who have all the money. Overspending doesn’t stop at just the presidential election either. Over the last decade, the most expensive senate campaigns of each cycle, save one (Elizabeth Dole in 2002), have been waged by Democrats.
I think it is officially time the term Fatcat was changed to something more appropriate: FatCRAT.
Congratulations MTV Generation – you’ve got your man as President. One question though – don’t you think he should have kept his word and spent half as much money campaigning and used the other $325 million supporting some of those causes ya’ll care so much about? He STILL would have outspent McCain by nearly 10%.
Honestly though, I really would have thought that much cash would have bought more than an 8.5% margin in the results.
Oh well, at least France likes us again.

It used to be that people from all over the world would flock to the United States to seek a better life. Oh wait, its still that way! Even as screwed up as we are, people are still beating down our doors in search of what they couldn’t find in their own countries.
They left their country to come here. I don’t have time to research this, but I’d bet that the immigration phenomenon has been stronger to the US than in any other country in the world. Call it jingoism if you’d like, but its all the folks from the rest of the world that are voting with their feet and trying to move here.
87.4% of the World would vote Obama. Has there ever been a better reason to vote McCain?
People come here because it is (was) DIFFERENT than where they were. Some would say, BETTER. I’ll leave that question up to the large number of immigrants to our shores, as I’m unbelievably biased on the question.
If we continue to vote they way the rest of the world does, we will be just like them. We are headed there already. Obama will bring us that much closer. If the world thinks this way, chances are we should be going in the exact opposite direction. Being a citizen of the world sounds nice, but when you come down to it, I’d pick being an American any day.
Please: Remain American. Vote McCain!
