And so it begins...Republicans on Obama

It should come as no surprise, but this statement was released by the Republican Party this morning:
WASHINGTON, June 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Robert M. "Mike" Duncan released the following statement tonight:

"As Barack Obama wheezes over the finish line to his Party's nomination, he has failed to convince voters that he has the experience and judgment to serve as Commander in Chief. Just as many members of his own Party refused to support his misguided policies, the majority of Americans will reject Obama's plans to meet with hostile leaders instead of America's military commanders, and raise taxes on families and small businesses. The Republican Party is united behind John McCain, and we look forward to his debates with Barack Obama on how best to create new jobs at home and win the war against radical Islamic extremism."

Of course, not all Republicans are united behind John McCain, I met a few on my trip out west that would have preferred Clinton who were cleary not part of the whole Rush "Operation Chaos" plan. However, the division within the Democratic Party and the Clinton base will be a huge problem for Obama depending on what happens.

Very few expect him to pick Clinton as his vice president, even if he did, would that be enough to attract the Clinton base is an interesting question to ponder.

A little off ctopic comment first; welcome back home Lisa. Glad you had a fun time and I hope that you got everything you needed from your break. Hope that Emily has a great time with her new job and new home.

So, Barack is the Dem's man. Now we can see super mud slinging from both parties and the stuff each will get on the other candidate. Chaos at it's worst. With Clinton waiting for the last moment to bow out will really hurt Obama's chances to win. If he chooses her for VP, McCain wins hands down.

I know that this country has come a long way in equality, but there are still many good old boy thinkers in the South and most of middle America isn't really to vote in a black man and women to the White House.

A sad comment with this country, since the Democrats should have won this election hands down the way the Republicans have meesed this country up for the last eight years. But since they can't stop the infighting, the Republicans get the White House once again.

I just wish that I could vote for someone I could believe in for once, instead of voting for the person who I think will mess up the least.
