Views of a Veteran

Just another WordPress.com weblog

Is he ready?

I stole the following videos from Hot Air.

The video goes on to show how Obama has traveled more in his first year in the Senate then any other first year Senator, it also shows Obama admitting he doesn’t do much in Congress and that he is a nobody:

In fact, Obama spent almost $10,000 more than any other freshman Senator in the 109th Congress. He racked up over $28,000 in bills for his junkets, which included stops in Israel, Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan, Kenya, and South Africa. Obama’s office pointed to his membership on the Foreign Relations Committee, claiming that Obama did substantive work on those occasions, and that bringing his family on the trips did not make them taxpayer-funded vacations.

OK so the second video is the first general election ad for Obama, normally I wouldn’t put this on here, but it goes to show that you can’t believe everything a wannabe has to say:


Now the truth:

PolitiFact: Obama’s “third claim on veterans health benefits is less clear… Obama was not a sponsor of the bill, and without more detail we can’t confirm whether he contributed to the law…” (06/23/08)

FactCheck.org: “[F]or Obama to say that he ‘passed a law’ casts him as a legislative Lone Ranger, hogging credit that properly belongs to other parties as well.” (06/20/08)

Washington Post: “Obama sponsored or co-sponsored – but did not ‘pass’ – the welfare and tax measures but does not mention that these were in the Illinois legislature in 1997 and 2000. He sponsored congressional measures that helped hospitalized veterans, but in a relatively minor way: extending beyond 90 days the period in which they can receive free meals and free phone calls to family members. Obama may have turned down Wall Street jobs after graduating from Columbia University in 1983, but he spent a year working for Business International Corp. in New York before becoming a community organizer in Chicago, and he later joined a law firm there.” (06/20/08)

New York Times: “Mr. Obama refers to three bills that passed during his time in the Illinois Senate and in the United States Senate, and he did have a hand in passing all three. But he did not actually vote on the third bill, the National Defense Authorization Act, which passed overwhelmingly in January.” (06/20/08)

Chicago Tribune: “Obama ad cites bill he did not vote on… While the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee authored provisions that ultimately made it into the law, he did not vote for its passage on Jan. 22, when he was busy campaigning in advance of the South Carolina primary.” (06/20/08)

You know I don’t know if is the fact that I actually use my brain to make decisions or if there is just something about Obama that makes me cringe. I find it amazing that a Senator with only 2 years of experience, is the nominee for the democratic party! Ok I get the fact that he gives good speeches when scripted for him, I get the fact that he is young and new, and I get the fact that most college kids find him appealing, but does that qualify him for the job? But what I really love is when Obama has said on many many occasion that he would take public finances as long as the other candidate was willing to do it as well, he goes back on his word, but when you hear the left wing nut jobs talk about it, its like he never said he would do it, but that he would “think” about it. To prove this point I found an article by Joseph A Palermo slamming Jon Stewart of the Daily Show, Stewart made fun of Obama flip-flopping on the public financing decision, and this ass-hat got all mad about it and decided to take it out on Stewart. You can find the article here.

Here are some excerpts from the article:

So too was the case last night when Jon Stewart ran a bit about Barack Obama’s decision to eschew public financing. The Daily Show seized the issue as an opportunity to display “balance” and to poke fun at the Obama campaign. But not only did the bit fall flat it played right into the Republican line, which is full of half-truths and outright lies about Obama’s decision.

Let’s set the record straight. First, Obama did not “vow” to take public financing no matter what ensued in the campaign. There were all sorts of conditions and unpredictable variables that he said would affect his decision about public financing when (and if) the time came. He wisely gave himself wiggle room on the issue. That’s what politicians do. He didn’t paint himself into a corner because at the time he didn’t know if he’d be able to unseat Hillary Clinton or who his likely Republican opponent would be.

That last one was my favorite!!

Here is the video in question on the Daily Show, enjoy:

Just when I saw it all

Ok so my last post was about videos and well this will have a video in it.

I have heard the argument over and over again that Obama is not qualified for the job and that he does not know enough about foreign policy to be the next Commander in Chief,and I agree with that statement. There are also the statements coming from the left about how McCain is to old, or he is losing his mind, which I find to be false!

With the said, I go and find this video of Obama not knowing about Hanford in WA state. Know I am going to admit I did not know about this, but then again I am an Army grunt who doesn’t need to know about this. But I damn sure know that if I were running for President it would be something I would know about. You can go here to find out more about Hanford. Basically Hanford is were most of the nuclear material that was produced since the Manhattan Project, for nuclear weapons. When it was shut down there was tons and tons of nuclear waste that still needs to be dealt with, so the govt each year pumps billions and billions into the cleaning of this site. So when asked about Hanford and what he would do to make sure the govt. keeps funding the clean up, Obama comes straight out and admits he doesn’t know about this place. Yet when McCain is asked he knows about it ans give a good response. Check out the video below:

Now don’t get me wrong admitting you don’t know about something is fine, if you aren’t running for President of the United States! You should be know about this! so you have this, plus Obama doesn’t know how many states are in the U.S (he says57, google says 50 who are you going to trust?, he does not know about history (he said his “uncle” help liberate Auschwitz, was he Russian b/c the U.S. didn’t go there!)and he doesn’t even know what a inhaler is for someone suffering with asthma verses a breathalyzer! 9hesaid a child using a breathalyzer instead of being put into a hospital bed when suffering an asthma attack!)

People need to make sure to look t both of these candidates, look at them good then make your decision! Because do we really want to go back to the Carter Admin polices of the 70’s?

Sorry

|For those of you that actually read this blog of mine, you might be wondering what is up with all of the videos. Well here lately I have been watching a lot of different videos and some are funny while some are crazy. But when I find a video that proves in my mind that Obama isn’t the right man for the job, or show that the Bush Admin didn’t lie about Iraq and WMD’s, I feel that I need to show it.

Hopefully if you watch the videos you will see what I am talking about!

Illegal war and the Clinton Admin

makes me wonder if Obama reads history? Watch this video of Bill Clinton after the attacks on the embassies in Africa in 1998.
Pay attention to the following times:
2:04-Law enforcement
2:31- Law enforcement may not be enough
2:43- Terrorism will not end
2:50- We will not yield
2:56- Will belong and ongoing battle
3:05- we will fight for as long as needed
3:30- we must stand against terrorism

Bill Clinton speech to the Joint Chiefs of Staff 2/17/98:
Watch for these times here:
1:00 Dealing with Saddam
1:15- Push back against Saddam when he pushes against us
2:13- We are prepared to act
3:12- Iraq is a rogue state with WMD’s to give to terrorists groups
3:44- Clear evidence of WMD’s

Al Gore 2/18/98 Speech to the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Watch for these times:
0:42- There is a serious challenge in the Gulf
0:54- the ability to produce and use WMD’s

Make me wonder what the Democrats and the liberal left are really thinking??

UPDATE

Found some more videos of the Clinton Admin telling lies like the Bush Admin supposedly did!

Some things to ponder

So I was looking at Hot Air and found the following stories:

Barack Obama & 9/11– nice editorial about the mind set of Obama when it comes to the war on terror!

Quotes of the day June 19th– very interesting to hear the Obama is going to go back on his word about sing public financing for the election, but then again does it surprise me? Nope not onebit, imagine 4 years of that!

Then I read this from Pajamas Media– McCain and Liberman could be the Just the ticket, story his here

More to come later

Let us not forget!

So I was stumbling (its an ad-on for Firefox or internet explorer very addictive, check it out here) here at work today and I came across a video of the attacks on the World Trade Center that I had not seen, and it got me thinking. All day today I have been reading things about Obama’s stance on the war on terror and his foreign polices he wants to put into place. Most of the stories reflect on how Obama wants to go back to the way it was on 9/10/01, and that scares the crap out of me!

Obama actually thinks that if there is another terrorist attack on this country like the one on 9/11 that law enforcement would be able to handle it just like it did in the 93 bombings of the WTC! Well obviously that didn’t work out! After the bombing of the WTC in 93, Al-Queada and other terrorists would do the following events prior to 9/11/01 all over the world to American citizens:

1.Nov. 13,1995- Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: car bomb exploded at U.S. military headquarters, killing 5 U.S. military servicemen.

2.June 25,1996- Dhahran, Saudi Arabia: truck bomb exploded outside Khobar Towers military complex, killing 19 American servicemen and injuring hundreds of others. 13 Saudis and a Lebanese, all alleged members of Islamic militant group Hezbollah, were indicted on charges relating to the attack in June 2001.

3.Aug. 7,1998- Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania: truck bombs exploded almost simultaneously near 2 U.S. embassies, killing 224 (213 in Kenya and 11 in Tanzania) and injuring about 4,500. 4 men connected with al-Qaeda 2 of whom had received training at al-Qaeda camps inside Afghanistan, were convicted of the killings in May 2001 and later sentenced to life in prison. A federal grand jury had indicted 22 men in connection with the attacks, including Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden, who remained at large.

4.Oct. 12,2000-Aden, Yemen: U.S. Navy destroyer USS Cole heavily damaged when a small boat loaded with explosives blew up alongside it. 17 sailors killed. Linked to Osama bin Laden, or members of al-Qaeda terrorist network.

(information for these items were taken from Terrorists Attacks at infoplease.com)

Now there ahve been some attacks on Americans since 9/11 but nothing to the scale of the 4 above. But to keep a balanced view here are the rest after 9/11:

1.May 12,2003- Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: suicide bombers killed 34, including 8 Americans, at housing compounds for Westerners. Al-Qaeda suspected.

2.May 29–312004-, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: terrorists attack the offices of a Saudi oil company in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, take foreign oil workers hostage in a nearby residential compound, leaving 22 people dead including one American.

3.June 11–19,2004- Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: terrorists kidnap and execute Paul Johnson Jr., an American, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 2 other Americans and BBC cameraman killed by gun attacks.

4.Dec. 6,2004- Jeddah, Saudi Arabia: terrorists storm the U.S. consulate, killing 5 consulate employees. 4 terrorists were killed by Saudi security.

5.Nov. 9,2005- Amman, Jordan: Suicide bombers hit 3 American hotels, Radisson, Grand Hyatt, and Days Inn, in Amman, Jordan, killing 57. Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility.

6.Jan. 12,2006- Athens, Greece: the U.S. embassy was fired on by an anti-tank missile causing damage but no injuries.

Now these last 6 were all done in Muslim countries against U.S. targets, but not done on American soil. So what does that mean? Well in my mind that means the Bush Admin’s approach to the terrorists over the last 7 years has worked. We have been able to keep the American people safe with in our own borders! Now that is not to say that the terrorists didn’t try, but when the government comes out and says they have stopped an attack from happening is a lot better then them coming on TV saying we will get those responsible for this attack.

Now imagine if you will, the Bush Admin decides to what Clinton has done the 8 years prior to the 9/11 attack and decided to allow law enforcement try to capture those responsible and send a few dozen cruise missiles at the Taliban! Do you honestly think that would have stopped them from coming here again and attacking us? Do you think that by going into a defensive position against terrorists would have stopped them? I would have to say HELL NO!!! If anything it would have made them stronger! They would have seen this as a success and the U.S. are to big of pussies to come after them, so they would have free rain on us! So instead of having 66 Americans killed by terrorists attacks since 9/11, that number could have easily been double, tripled or more!

Now some of you out there will scream and holler ” We didn’t get Osama!”, “Bush lied people died!”,”Iraq is an illegal war!”. Well before you stress out your vocal cords and get my combat boot up your ass, I am not listening to that crap! We could get Osama if the Pakistani govt would help us and allow us to look in their country, but that isn’t going to happentoday nor will it happen if Obama is President! As far as the Iraq war being illegal, well I think that ship has sailed! First off go read this story here about the “illegal” war. Also read this here about Saddam’s connections to Al-Queda, and while you are at it read this here about Saddam’s other connections to terrorism. Or read how Obama thinks all of the terrorists from the93 bombing are in jail here
Or the fact that Obama has aides saying stupid shit like Winnie the Pooh should shape foreign policy, read it here

Well the main purpose of this post is to remind all you folks out there of why we are fighting, why it is important to vote McCain into office, and why we have to keep the terrorists on the run no matter how long it takes us to rid this world of them:
