Bocephus

This has made a few headlines in the last few days, but I hadn't heard the full song until today. So, for those who have yet to hear Hank Williams Jr.'s "McCain-Palin Tradition", enjoy.

Great song. We love Country Music out here!

Obama behaved as his typical metrosexual self (ralph!), but McCain did VERY well in tonight's debate. He brought up many excellent points against Obama's positions, and was assertive without being too aggressive.

Many people in Frank Luntz's focus group of independents said they felt Obama might have been more eloquent and thus he technically "won" the debate----but they planned to vote for McCain, anyway! FANTASTIC!

Bottom line: McCain did so well that there was NO knock-out by Obama. Thus, WE CAN STILL WIN THIS ELECTION! Pray, talk with coworkers, friends, and loved ones, and help get out the vote!

Cool.

Let's all share this song with others.

someone posted this here on their blog and i hope they don't mind me borrowing Lincoln's words



On April 30, 1863, with a nation in the midst of the tragic Civil War, President Lincoln at the request of the Senate issued a proclamation calling this nation to prayer. Excerpts from that proclamation are as follows:

…it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God; to confess their sins…and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord…

…We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many, years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown, but we have forgotten God.

…We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined in the deceitfulness of our own hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God who made us;

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Scott, those are great words from Lincoln. Let's pray that our country will remember God's provisions and blessings and turn from our selfish and evil ways.
As for the debate, I thought the highlight was when McCain said that if Obama wanted to run against George Bush, he should have run 4 years ago. I liked that they brought up abortion, but as Fred Barnes said on Fox's post-debate coverage, McCain should have brought up the "Freedom of Choice Act" that Obama supports. I thought this debate was at least more interesting than the last one.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I think McCain needs a new campaign ad after tonight,

"Who will you vote for: Sen. McCain, or Sen. Government?"

BTW, is too late to put Plumber Joe on the campaign team?:)

Thank you Scott for posting that quote. I have already passed it on to others.

Joe the Plumber IS/WAS the "game changer"...so it now does look like Gov Palin will indeed become our Vice President on January 20, 2009 after all.

Thank you Joe, and thank you God for bringing us Joe in the nick of time, or, as the "October surprise".

And of course, thanks again to Adam Brickley!

Agreed, Sarah Palin is well on her way to becoming the next VP. For a more thorough analysis of her leadership ability, read Joe Hilley's new book, "Sarah Palin: A New Kind of Leader." Just pubished by Zondervan. Available online and at lots of local bookstores, too.

"Mr. Obama, I'm not President Bush, If you wanted to run against President Bush you should have run 4 years ago."




i can't tell you how long i've waited to hear just that!

I've been around too many salesmen. I don't trust Obama's "smoothness". Joe the Plumber represents many of us small business owners - many of whom don’t like Obama's Robin Hood plan. He told Joe that he's sorry but he's going to spread the wealth around. Then he says he's only going to increase taxes on 5% of the people and cut the rest. He can't cut taxes to 95% of the population and yet still fund all the different programs he claims he'll fund. He's making empty campaign promises.

10 recent statements that give me hope that John and Sarah will prevail: 1) John Murtha: my constituents (in PA) are racists; 2)Barack Obama: I'd be further ahead if it wasn't for Fox News; 3)Steve Corbett, radio talk show host in PA, leaked an Obama internal poll that shows Obama only 2 points up in PA; 4)Barack Obama to Joe the Plumber: you have to be prepared to 'share the wealth'; 5) John McCain: we're down only about 6 points; 6)Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: John McCain should not have picked a woman so unqualified to be VP (after the VP debate); 7)PUMA pundit: we are instructing our members to lie to pollsters and say they are voting for Obama; 8)John Zogby and Karl Rove: "This is not over yet; Obama has not closed the deal." 9)John Lewis comparing John and Sarah to church bombers during the segregation era; 10)Barack Obama: I thought he (Bill Ayres) was rehabilitated.
