McCain

Tick tock junior, you are running out of time.

Mr. President,

You have seven days to get this Iraq deal closed, seven days to give the Republican party any kind of hope of retaining some kind of obstructionist presence in the Senate, seven days to try and salvage any kind of a positive legacy.

Withholding the NIE report on Afghanistan has blunted some of the bad news from the Mid East but a successful agreement with the Iraqi government could be a considerable help and handcuff the next president's hands as well.

You bypassed Congress as the Constitution's power to legally approve all international treaties by arguing that the power of your war-time presidency trumps the legislature normal responsibility to pass international treaties.

Iraq is calling for a fixed time line for the elimination of combat troops and contractors associated with security. They also want American troops and contractors to be subject to Iraqi laws and courts.

The last reiteration of the treaty dated October 13 was not clear on these two key points.

Nationalist cleric
Muqtada al-Sadr recently mobilized hundreds of thousands of demonstrators in protest against the pact, and calling for its defeat.


They think they have you over a barrel.

But you responded last week that if they don't agree to a new agreement governing American forces in Iraq, they would lose $6.3 billion in aid for construction, security forces and economic activity and another $10 billion a year in foreign military sales.

This treaty is not working out to be a cakewalk or a slam dunk is it junior?

How odd. There were no flowers for our soldiers or for your divisive treaty.

Despite these disasters, McCain is desperately trying to be that next president.

Unfortunately, his election is limited to peddling fear, racism and the age-old political staple of, "If you can't win enough votes eliminate the other guy's votes."

Republicans in Ohio had hoped to dump over 200,000 likely democratic voters by forcing the state to match up each new voter against multiple state databases to ferret out illegally registered voters.

On the surface that may sound fair except that a misplaced comma, a mistyped initial on any of the state's databases, is reason enough to force these new voters to use provisional ballots.

The mortgage crisis would also impact on a person's ability to vote because many home owners have changed addressees, so forms used to verify their address would not be returned if they were sent to their last address.

The Ohio State Supreme Court shot down the Republican's argument. So
you ordered Attorney General Mucassey to investigate whether hundreds of thousands of voters would have to verify the information on their voter registration forms before their vote counts, despite the U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

The state's databases are not set up to cross match this information and the time available will not allow that to happen.

If Mucassey interferes with the voting process now, up to 200,000 voters will be asked to submit provisional ballots. In past elections, provisional ballots have been the easiest to trash.

This is completely unprecedented this close to a presidential election. But hey, in for a dollar in for a dime. You have overreached and violated the Constitution so often that this comparable to jay walking after committing murder.


All in all, your party is toast junior.

After trying to follow McCain's election campaign for a while, it seems like his handlers are taking their cues from right-wing lunatics like Rush Lumbaugh and Sean Hannity.

Following such a skewed right-wing agenda has been of immeasurable help to the Obama campaign.

The more they push hate, racism and the ridiculous connections to Ayers, the higher the polls go up for Obama.

McCain's failure to reach the people of America is indicative of how you and many people in your party have been so blinded to the extent of the negative results of your disastrous policies over the last eight years.

People are losing their homes and their jobs out there ,and it has nothing to do with Obama crossing paths with a one-time radical from the 60’s.

It does have everything to do with how the consequences of the Republican platform for the last two decades have finally hit home. The GOP myth of trickle down economics has been laid to rest forever.

Racist rhetoric has been a preferred means of communications to reach simple people who prefer simple solutions. The problem is that America as a whole is becoming more tolerant of race and the economy is pressing the point that "green" trumps "black."

People are willing more than ever to have someone, anyone who is NOT a Republican to help them keep their jobs their homes and their children’s futures even if they are black.

Although McCain's campaign is hurting, pitchforks are selling well.

Mr. President,
Your buddy, John McCain’s campaign is falling apart but pitch forks are selling well.

He has been using your advisors to manage his campaign and it is not working out real well with independents but it is sure the best thing a lynch mob could hope for.

Outrageous lies and dirty tricks have always worked wonders for you, but this Republican staple, is not making a dent with most voters. They have however made a difference to racists who have yearned for a high-ranking public official to sanction their hatred of blacks.

It is ashamed McCain does not have a decent economic plan which deals with the large number of for sale signs across the American landscape.

It took a while but Wall Street finally got the message as the American people's pain trickled up and allowed your free market policies to decimate the Stock Market until the world's economies were brought to their knees.

As the president who waged an un-ending war against a sovereign nation, legalized torture, created a law-free Guantanimo, supported Abu Gharib, ignored Katrina, shredded our Constitution, ran up huge deficits and wrecked the American economy, you have left McCain with precious little to run on.

Sean Hannity, Fox News and various right-wing talk hosts have been foaming at the mouth with anti-Obama propaganda for months. They have been adamant that McCain should amp up the long-desredited Ayers connection and call Obama a terrorist.

Using this line of raw hatred is frightening many Republicans and Democrats alike.

I wonder if Hannity and Limbaugh would be satisfied if McCain walked into the last debate dressed as a klansman.

The fissures which grew in McCain’s campaign over the last few months are being patching up with anger as fast as McCain's surrogates including Palin, could trowel it on.

After McCain headed down this road, the pre-selected crowds of the faithful have taken those words as license to erupt with seething anger towards Obama. The fringe element attracted by this level of hatred doesn’t need very much to push them into actual violence.

Once Palin lit the fire the Fox network kept the furnace stoked.

The Republican party’s fear of loosing it all has increased shouts of "traitor," "terrorist," "treason," "liar," and even "off with his head."

A black camera man at one event received several racial epitaphs from the white crowds at a McCain/Palin event.

The pitch fork wavers are taking over.

I wondered how far the vitriol would go before McCain had to make a declaration one way or another.

On Friday, before a Minnesota crowd, he was backed into a corner by a couple of members of the audience. One man said he was fearful of an Obama presidency and a woman in the crowd, Gayle Quinnell, said she read about Sen. Barack Obama and "that he was an Arab,"

McCain did the right thing and told the crowd that Obama was NOT an arab and Obama is a "decent person, a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States." Although the crowd booed he made his point.

How does it feel to know the GOP is toast after you put all that effort into politicizing every decision you made to help establishing a Republican dynasty?

Not only did you fail miserably, you put your potential Republican replacement in quite a pickle.

I am not sure what McCain will do now but regardless of which McCain shows up at the debate, your legacy will guide him to failure.
