Left And Right Politics

…plus the cream in the center. (New York’s Lower Hudson Valley):

The state Independence Party endorsed Republican John McCain on Saturday, the first time New York’s third-largest party has backed a major-party presidential candidate.

The group, organized around the principle that the major parties have a stranglehold on American politics, sees McCain as an independent thinker, Chairman Frank MacKay said.

“I believe he will not take the traditional input from the party bosses and the special interests that other presidents have. I believe he’s going to be his own man,” MacKay said, citing McCain’s work as co-author of a landmark 2002 law that restricted “soft money,” or indirect campaign donations.

MacKay said the party had long admired McCain, who has emphasized his reputation as a party-bucking maverick and striven to present himself as a reformer on the campaign trail.

    Any reasonable and ratanoil person who actually read or heard Saint Obama’s words when he addressed the Germans would conclude that substance was sorely lacking. He filled the air with platitudes. St. Obama is an attractive person with a wonderful speaking voice but he is, at best, a very superficial candidate. He tells us time and again he’s “against” this or that, but rarely does he explain how he would do it better.As for the lament among the glitterati who attend his apparitions that the world hates us and St. Obama will make them love us–I don’t give a tinker’s dam whether some backward Muslim or some haughty Frenchman loves us. We became an independent nation when we realized the Europeans were all hopelessly corrupt and oppressed their people. We didn’t want to be like them. Now our “educated” fellow Americans want us to be like the Germans and the French (who have been at each other’s throats since time immemorial). If you want to be loved by a bunch of arrogant and unwashed foreigners, by all means cast your vote for St. Obama. For my part, I don’t see any reason to suck up to any foreign nation.Tarheel Hawkeye
