Keyes: President Obama? Not So Much!

“Have people gone mad in this country?” – Alan Keyes

I wrote here last year that fighting an educated campaign was the only way to go against Barack Obama. The photos of “silly” grandma, Muslim conspiracy chat, piling on Michelle’s verbiage, and thinly veiled racism coming in viral emails were not only over the top, but I feel in part helped Obama win. There was even testimony of Republicans and conservatives turned off by so much of these political hack jobs that they voted for Obama. For the most part, it was an embarrassing time to be a conservative.

Now, and even before, we have Alan Keyes, who often operates below the radar, consistently calling out Obama as only Keyes can. Keyes is such an intellectual (in a positive way), that I often wish he would simply come down to earth and talk with a little more humility. However, he is right on in most cases.

Above is a recent interview with Keyes. Here’s what the Los Angeles Times’ Andrew Malcolm, writes in his blog about the taped interview:

…Keyes, who lost to Obama in the 2004 U.S. Senate race in Illinois that launched the new president’s national political career, calls Obama a communist and usurper and says he refuses to acknowledge the validity of Obama’s inauguration over lingering questions in the minds of many conspiracists about the 44th president’s birthplace.

The video contains comments by Keyes that are alarming. However, closing our eyes and covering our ears, simply falling lock step with Obama Nation would be a mistake. My take? Pray, don’t take part in personal attacks, and wisely oppose that which is not right. Use words if you must!

After all, Obama said in his victory speech, “I especially welcome listening to those with opposing views.”

Let’s hold him to that.


Prop 8’s Pink Elephant in the Room

Let’s quit walking around the pink elephant in the room. If you don’t view homosexuality as sin (and doing so is not about hating homosexuals because we all sin), then more than likely, you are going to have the views of California’s “No on 8” supporters.

So, there you have it! The fundamental difference, one side believes homosexuality is acceptable for all of society, the other side – Yes on 8 – believes that homosexuality is a sin and should not be embraced by society.

Hate gays? No. Hate the sin. Now you can debate your view that homosexual behavior is not sin…and that is your choice, your understanding, and your belief. Hate those that believe that way? No.

Will the acceptance of gay marriage effect our society? Yes. Will all people understand that concept? No. It goes back to whether or not you believe homosexuality is a sin or not.

And even before that, whether you believe in the concept of sin or not. For if you don’t believe that sin exists, and you believe that truth is your own relevance, then this discussion is mute.

Do I fear gays, or gay marriage, or anyone siding with the normalization of homosexuality? No. In fact, your orientation has no basis on my desire to be friends with you or anyone.

I fear the Lord.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” – Proverbs 1:7

ADD: A quick sprint through CNN’s and the Los Angeles Times’ stories and blogs on Prop 8 Sunday morning showed that anyone wanting to leave a comment received this message or something similar: “Comments have been closed for this article.”

For so many people espousing tolerance, especially media types, where’s the dialogue about homosexuality? And for all you evolutionists out there…why haven’t we “evolved” beyond simply political campaign signs and streetside demonstrations?

Rogue CNN in the tank with anti-Palin crowd

CNN Headline: Palin’s ‘going rogue,’ McCain aide says

Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN that they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin “going rogue.”

Hmmmm… “several” McCain advisers have suggested? But only “one aide” described? How convenient!

McCain sources say Palin has gone off-message several times, and they privately wonder whether the incidents were deliberate. They cited an instance in which she labeled robocalls — recorded messages often used to attack a candidate’s opponent — “irritating” even as the campaign defended their use. Also, they pointed to her telling reporters she disagreed with the campaign’s decision to pull out of Michigan.

Off-message and deliberate? Robocalls are irritating and McCain pulling out of Michigan prematurely? Say, it ain’t so! My gosh, how “rogue”! It used to be saying something like that was factual (robocalls) and just a disagreement (Michigan)…now it’s rogue?!?

Hey CNN, I heard that Biden didn’t agree with what the DNC served him for breakfast this morning? I think he said it should have been eggs and pancakes instead of eggs and toast? Now THAT’S rogue!

CNN, you are a rogue media outlet, hell bent on breaking from journalistic integrity!


Joe Six-Packs Team with Hockey Moms

TheScroogeReport Blog Poll: Can Team Joe Six-Pack/Hockey Mom Defeat Obama Nation?

“It’s time that normal Joe Six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency,” Sarah Palin told radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt recently.

During the Vice Presidential debate, Palin said: “Let’s commit ourselves just every day American people, Joe Six-Pack, hockey moms across the nation, I think we need to band together and say never again.”

Several questions come to mind…

How big a voting block is the Joe Six-Pack/Hockey Mom contingent?

Are the JSHMs strong enough to help defeat Obama Nation?

How do Obama supporters counter the aggressive, appealing nature of Joe Six-Pack and Hockey Mom?

And finally…

What is your cringe factor (if you have one) at the mere mention of Sarah Palin, Joe Six-Pack, and Hockey Mom?

Note: I have no cringe factor on this one….only a big smile!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Michelle Malkin shines light on PBS anchor Gwen Ifill, who will moderate Thursday’s only vice presidential debate. Try as Ifill might to deflect questions about her impartiality, her biases — and her conflict of interest — are clear.

She’s so far in the tank for the Democrat presidential candidate, her oxygen delivery line is running out. – Michelle Malkin
