Barrack Obama may have the charisma and the look of a rock start but he has shattered my support. He literally has broken it into small pieces and left it by the side of the road. His praise of Ronald Reagan to the Reno Gazette has left me reeling...........
Obama told the Reno Gazette-Journal editorial board Monday that "Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not and in a way that Bill Clinton did not. He put us on a fundamentally different path because the country was ready for it," Obama said.
"I think it's fair to say that the Republicans were the party of ideas for a pretty long chunk of time there over the last 10 to 15 years in the sense that they were challenging conventional wisdom," Obama told the newspaper.
How dare a Democratic candidate praise the Republican Party or its "walk on water" god Reagan for anything? The Republican Party has sent this country into a tailspin that we may never recover from. It has dismissed the middle class as nothing more than worker bees and increased the distance between the extremely wealthy and the ones just getting by.
Hillary Clinton hit the mark.
"That's not the way I remember the last ten to fifteen years." She said she didn't consider it a better idea to privatize Social Security, eliminate the minimum wage, undercut health benefits, shut down the government or drive the country into debt. "I think we know what needs to be done in America. And I think we're ready to do it. I'm ready to lead on day one.
Edwards was also on the mark,
"Ronald Reagan, the man who busted unions, the man who did everything in his power to destroy the organized labor movement, the man who created a tax structure that favored the richest Americans against middle class and working families, ... we know that Ronald Reagan is not an example of change for a presidential candidate running in the Democratic Party," Edwards said.
Reagan also "was destructive to the environment by removing a lot of the regulation that existed," Edwards added in a later telephone interview with The Associated Press. "I would never use Ronald Reagan as an example of change."
From this day forward I will support Mr. John Edwards for the Presidency. He is the only one who has a disdain for big business, corporate corruption, and special interest that is similar to my own. He is, in fact, a man of the people.
I will support a Democratic candidate no matter who he or she might be. But I hope and pray that it will be a candidate that I can tell myself, my children, and my grandchildren was not BUSH LIGHT!!
