Fun in disctrict 22

Yes, I know the presidential race is wearing thin with all the back and forth, but I'm hooked! I'm just waiting for Hillary to call it a day and take a verrry long break. .

On the brighter side, Republicans can also attack their own as seen in

"You Can’t Trust What Shelley Sekula-Gibbs Says and
You Can’t Trust Her With Your Vote"

Are you seeing this Nick Lampson??

I'm a little envious...of war

President AWOL speaks:
President Bush spoke of his dream to work on the frontline in Afghanistan during a video conference with US military and civilian personnel in the war-torn country.

"I must say, I'm a little envious," Bush said.

"If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed.

"It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," President Bush said.

Hillary hits the high note

Ben Smith:
Obama communications director Robert Gibbs emails reporters with a picture of Clinton and Sheryl Crow from a 1996 trip to Kosovo Bosnia, linking a series of recent articles including this Chicago Tribune piece making the point that Clinton wasn't a central player on foreign policy in her husband's administration.

McCain/Clinton 08

Hillary more cheerleader than negotiator in Northern Ireland

Hillary Clinton mere "cheerleader" in Ireland.
Hillary Clinton had no direct role in bringing peace to Northern Ireland and is a "wee bit silly" for exaggerating the part she played, according to Lord Trimble of Lisnagarvey, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of the province.
"I don’t know there was much she did apart from accompanying Bill [Clinton] going around," he said. Her recent statements about being deeply involved were merely "the sort of thing people put in their canvassing leaflets" during elections. "She visited when things were happening, saw what was going on, she can certainly say it was part of her experience. I don’t want to rain on the thing for her but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player."
And for more world class international experience...
The "Belfast Telegraph" reported the next day that the café meeting was crammed with reporters, cameramen and Secret Service agents. Conversation "seemed a little bit stilted, a little prepared at times" and Mrs Clinton admired a stainless steel tea pot, which was duly given to her, for keeping the brew "so nice and hot".
Now that's what I call Experience!

Hillary praises Mcbush

Yes, it's possible, Hillary has now stooped to a new level where she is making it difficult for many Democrats to like her. if you like reading crap...see below.

“I think that since we now know Sen. McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that. And I think it’s imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold,” the New York senator told reporters crowded into an infant’s bedroom-sized hotel conference room in Washington.

“I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you’ll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy,” she said.

Calling McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee a good friend and a “distinguished man with a great history of service to our country,” Clinton said, “Both of us will be on that stage having crossed that threshold.”
What exactly is this commander-in-chief threshold? Does being the wife of a former president automatically qualify someone to be a cammander-in-chief? And why does she compare herself to our Republican counterpart? When will Hillary come out and explain in detail to the American people what exactly she has down that qualifies her above anyone else for this position? When will she quit hiding behind Bill Clinton and answer some of these questions?

HRC a party spoiler?

Will HRC Spoil the Party? Robert Reich thinks so...
The sad news is that whether the Clinton scorched-earth strategy ultimately succeeds or fails, it will have caused great harm. In the unlikely event it succeeds, the result will be a shame and not a little ironic. Barack Obama has breathed life into the Democratic Party, and into American politics, for the first time in forty years. Not since Robert Kennedy ran for president has America been so starkly summoned to its ideals; not since then has America -- including, especially, the nation’s youth -- been so inspired. The Clintons would prefer to write off “Obamania” as a passing fad, but the reality is that idealism and inspiration are necessary preconditions for positive social change. Nothing happens in Washington unless Americans are energized and mobilized to make it happen. HRC's tactics are the old politics the nation is recoiling from -- internal division and national fear. This only serves to deepen Americans' cynicism about politics, and makes social change all the harder to achieve.

McCain praises his twin

"I do not agree with your sentiment that there has been widespread corruption. I just don't accept that. And by the way my friends do you think it would be nice if the President of the United States got a little bit of credit for the fact that there has not been another attack on the United States of America since 9-11? I think he deserves some credit for that. I really do." - McCain
This is the man Hillary has been praising lately...eeehhh!

Now that's just plain wrong

Kos is reporting:

As you can see, the campaign ad has darkened Obama's skin tone, while stretching the video horizontally to give Obama a wider nose
Clinton campaign has denied it's their ad but then why was it on the official Hillary website?

Now that's just plain wrong!

Bill Richardson: disagrees with Hillary regarding Barack

What we have here is Richardson calling BS on Hillary's 3am ad. Are we seeing the making of a possible endorsement of Obama?
He was outspoken in his criticism of Clinton's new "ringing phone" ad, which suggests that Obama is not ready to become commander in chief.

"I happen to disagree with that ad that says that Senator Obama is not ready," he said. "He is ready. He has great judgment, an internationalist background."

Rio Grande Valley - a party divided

A generational rift defines the presidential race among Latinos in Texas's Rio Grande Valley, where Barack Obama has generated enough momentum with young voters to threaten Hillary Clinton's Latino support base.In the Rio Grande Valley...a party divided.
A generational rift defines the Democratic race among Latinos in the Rio Grande Valley, where Clinton once enjoyed almost complete support. Obama introduced himself here two weeks ago, and he has since generated enough momentum with young voters to threaten Clinton's Latino support base. Polls indicate that Clinton's lead has evaporated in Texas, a state that her husband has said she must win Tuesday.

An argument that began two months ago in the Lucio household now echoes along the Texas border. Whose voice is louder: that of loyal Latinos who credit Clinton for her history of paying attention to an impoverished region that so many other politicians forget? Or that of younger, better-educated Latinos who identify with Obama as a minority who emerged from nothing?
