McCain Displays Credentials as Obama Relaxes


For the last several days, Obama has seemed to fade from the scene while on vacation as McCain
has seized nearly every opportunity to display his foreign policy credentials on the Georgia conflict. 
Only once, at the beginning of the week, did Obama discuss the fighting in public, when he emerged 
from his beachfront rental home to condemn Russia's escalation, in a way that seemed timed for the 
evening television news. He took no questions whose answers might demonstrate command of the issue.

McCain and his surrogates, however, have discussed the situation nearly every day on the campaign trail, 
often taking a hard line against Russia to the point of his declaring the other day, "We are all Georgians."
It is as if the candidates' images have been reversed within a matter of a few weeks. When Obama was 
overseas last month, McCain's foreign policy bona fides seemed diminished, if only because he could not 
attract the news media attention received by Obama. Now, Mr. Obama's voice seems muted at a time 
when much of the world has been worriedly watching the conflict.

I wish we could get Obama more involved in this campaign.
He seems to think the fight has already been either won or lost.

Swiftboater is Kiddie Porn Kingpin
 Jerome Corsi likes to molest little boys and horses!

"I don't hurt little boys - I love them.
  Hell, I just had two for lunch!"


Corgi has a PhD in Animal Husbandry, then he married a horse insemination specialist!

In early 2003 Corsi was indicted and convicted for the distribution of child pornography. 
The scandal mushroomed when Corsi was handed a lenient sentence that included no prison time. 
Conspiracy theories surrounding Judge "Murkie" filled Ohio newspaper for weeks.

Within a year, Corsi and friend John O'Neill published Unfit for Command, a fictional retelling 
of Kerry the Quitter's role in the Vietnam War. The American whore press, always in the pocket 
of the Republicans, told America those false charges were true and the Quitter lost the election.

Well, if you can't trust a child molester, a repeat horse rapist and 
convicted distributor of kiddie porn, who can you trust?

Catholic Budget Woes


The archdiocese's financial troubles began in large part with the clergy sexual abuse crisis
that erupted in 2002. According to the Church, they spent $136 million as of last summer
to settle claims by 1,015 victims abused by Boston priests.

They now faces about 70 remaining claims from people who say they were abused by priests,
down from about 130 outstanding claims a year ago.

The archdiocese said it cut the operating loss of its central administration to $2 million in 2007,
down from $9 million in fiscal 2006. But the archdiocese said it expects to lose $4 million in 2008
and $2 million in fiscal 2009 before balancing its budget in 2010.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to stop raping those kids?
I wonder what a "No rape victims" budget would look like?

Boo Hoo

 I missed that Saturday night "interview" with McCain and Obama, but caught some excerpts.
 In one, McCain talked about being tortured in Vietnam - saying the Vietnamese guards tied 
 his hands behind his back in a way that forced his head down between his knees and McCain 
 said he and his fellow POWS were left that way for hours.

 He called it "torture," but when WE do it to helpless Afghani goat herders,
 we call it "stress positions" and pretend it's just a minor inconvenience.

 Either stress positions are torture or they're not, but why is it torture when it's done 
 to our people but it's merely "enhanced interrogation" when we do it to others?

 If McCain was half a man, he'd admit Bush led America into torture
 and he'd demand an immediate halt to all American-led torture.

 We don't need four more years of 'American loves torture.'

 Subject: Monkeyboy and Georgia

Hey Bart,

Remember when the US spy plane had a mid-air with a Chinese fighter?
Bush was wetting himself 24-7 over that one until China decided not to whip his ass.

I remember - Bush's first reaction was, "Do our captured soldiers have Bibles?"

Bush apologized, then he GAVE them that spy plane - full of all our newest spy gadgets.
That's how he got the nickname, "President Weak and Stupid."

This time he's not as terrified so the speculation about Rove and company
setting it all up last month has a lot of credibility for me. (Like I believe anything
but the worst about those murdering assholes anyway).

Also, people who complain about your stance on the elections need to check your record.
As long as I've been reading Bartcop you've been right more often than everyone else.

But I find that people don't like accurate insight when it disagrees with their opinions.
Zealots hate doubters.

Why not pick Hillary?
 by Bill Press


Nobody else would bring what Hillary does to the ticket. So why is there so much opposition, even among 
Democrats, to her nomination? There are three reasons I hear, from my radio listeners and others: Hillary was 
mean to Obama during the primaries; Hillary still hasn't fully embraced Obama; and Hillary brings too much 
negative baggage, especially husband Bill. Come on, let's get real...

Isn't it obvious? 

Among Obama supporters, there's more than a touch of sour grapes in those arguments against Hillary. Even 
worse, they're all focused on yesterday, not tomorrow. To allow past differences or personal pique to dictate 
the strategy of the general election campaign would be a colossal mistake. Again, the only questions now are: 
How is Obama going to win in November? And who will best help Obama win?

Looking at it coldly in terms of winning -- based on her experience in the White House and Senate, 
her popularity, her skills as a campaigner, her proven vote-getting ability -- Hillary Clinton's the one.

If Obama chooses to run without Hillary, what will his future be if he loses? Hillary would win 
the 2012 nomination and the odds of her picking a former loser as her VP are slim-to-none.

Is Obama too young to go "all in" with his political career?

Or, he could win without her and "turn the page" on the Clintons.

Should Obama pick Hillary as his VP?

 Subject: Not again!!!

Hey BC,

Web gossip says that the repugnant Skull and Bones traitor 
John Kerry will be Obama's VP candidate. 

Kerry took a dive in 2004, and decent people ought to spit in his face, 
not hand him another chance to stick in his dirty little shiv.

Obama can't be that stupid - it's just not possible.
Kerry's reputation as a quitter and a loser has already been established.

Besides a bad reputation, what would Kerry bring to the ticket?

Edwards and Stupid Money Tricks


Fred Baron, Edwards' national finance chairman and a wealthy Dallas attorney,
admits he quietly began sending money to Rielle Hunter, Edwards' mistress.

Baron's payments could present legal problems, said attorney Cleta Mitchell. She said all
payments to anyone involved in Edwards' presidential campaigns - including Hunter and
Young - should have been fully disclosed under U.S. campaign finance laws.

"That would undermine the purpose of the payments, which was to avoid public disclosure
of the affair," Mitchell said. "The idea that Edwards' finance chairman can independently
hand over substantial sums of money to two campaign workers at a time when Edwards
is a candidate and to argue that that is not related to his campaign is a bit preposterous."

When's the last time you saw a Democrat bungle something this bad?

Just so we're clear: Barack Obama is in fact not the Anti-Christ, sent here to feed on the souls

 Subject: the military mind

Hey Bart,

I'm a huge fan with no funds, but I'm hoping that will change, and I promise you'll get a slice of the pie 
when the ship comes in, as you've been entertaining and assisting me for years in maintaining my sanity. 

I was a USASA (supposedly Army, but actually NSA, little did I know) dood from 1965 to 1969, 
and I can tell you this about the military "mind": the guys who wanted to stay in after their first enlistments 
(or draftments, if you will) were up were nothing but followers. They feared being discharged, because 
they couldn't imagine structuring their own lives. That's the problem with a "volunteer" army. 

If anyone were to ask me, I'd tell him or her it was simply time to do away with armies, but if we had 
to have one, there would have to be an impartial draft, without exemptions (see Prick Cheeny), period. 
How much money could we spend improving the quality of everyone's lives if we weren't in the business 
of making war?    What is our army's carbon footprint, for example? 

I'm not against our soldiers, duh, I was one of them when I was young, after all, 
but I really object to their being misused. OK, enough said. 
 Best wishes from Bob in Prague

I understand that "structuring their own lives" thing, but that's certainly not for me.
I went away to college at 17 and I was wild about the idea of nobody telling me what to do.

I don't think I would have made a good soldier.

Prosecutor Cliff Barnes indicting J.R. Ewing for murder without a body."

Subject: Obama and Grandpa tied?

Hey Bart greetings from Florida;

I do not know how Pew does their 'research' but most polling is done over the phone, and only on land lines.
That leaves out a bunch of people, mostly young people, who rely on their cell phones, and have no land lines.

I believe all of these polls are grossly underestimating the number of people who intend to vote for Obama.
This block of voters is also less likely to be racist than the older generations who tend to have land lines.

Is there a college dorm in this country that still has telephones in the rooms? 
Or a college student NOT relying on a cell?

Besides, such polls are meaningless and the 'undecideds'  have yet to decide...
McCain needs every one of those if he even wants to get close enough to steal it
(isn't this 'even in the polls' nonsense just to set us up for that 'close' victory? )
 Funky P

But if "all the polls" show them about even, the GOP could just steal it.
Seems like Obama should be 8-12 points ahead - that'd be steal-proof.

EVERY VOTE is sent thru the telephone/computer lines, so EVERY VOTE is hackable.

Subject: Hillary at the convention

I know you don't like hearing about we, who, may or may not vote for Obama
based on the Obama supporters' marginalization of us during the primary.
Until the primary, I had no idea that Dems were so misogynistic.

Now folks like me are left with the dilemma:
Vote for Obama or you are voting for McSame.

That's no dilemma - you vote for Obama.

But, I don't understand why I should vote for a guy who allowed misogyny and race-baiting to go
on during his campaign with a fellow Democrat . . . and now is crying how bad the Right Wing is to him
(yes, you warned and warned about this because you rightly saw Hillary as the best candidate).

Finally, we get to recognize Hillary's accomplishment at (gasp) the Democratic Convention.
Wow, what a concept! Recognizing a former first lady, who is now a Senator, and who almost
made it to the Dem nomination for president!

Where do these Hillary haters come from? What drives them?
How were they able to marginalize me and my ilk so effectively?

Bottom Line: They have themselves to blame, especially Donna Brazille, if Obama loses.

Bingo on Donna Brazile.
She screamed "Racism" louder than anybody.
She is a lying whore/.
Nobody screamed "Race war!" louder than that female Judas.
She's dead to me.

Bush is stealing $840,000,000 every day.
