In a little more than 24 hours we will all know how Hillary did in Indiana and in North Carolina. Most of the mainstream media continues with its anointing Obama narrative, fearful that Hillary will pull another rabbit out of her hat.
What the country is witnessing is the gold standard in campaigning . . . Hillary was wonderful on FOX with Bill O’Reilly and on Sunday’s, This Week with George Stephanopoulos. First husband, Bill, has hit his stride again as he talks to people in small towns all over North Carolina and Indiana . . . and the sound you hear in the background? It’s the sound of Hillary’s campaign machine as it hums along.
If your only source of news was MSNBC, you would never know that Hillary is poised to confound the pundits, her critics, and Obamakins, yet again. North Carolina voters could actually choose Hillary over Barak; and if that happens this game isn’t over. If that’s not a come from behind upset, I don’t know what is.
So what does this have to do with Obama’s Chickenhood?
Well, the truth is this, anything can happen in a campaign. Should the worst case scenario take place and Hillary were to lose the nomination to Obama after every option had been exhausted, I would have no choice but to support McCain.
The reason is, I believe that at this point in his life, Barack Obama lacks the type of courage this country needs. Obama’s message for change is spot on. We are all tired of Bush, the war, the antics of the many, and the accomplishments of the few. We may be looking at “right message . . . wrong man.”
No matter how hard I try, I can’t get over the fact that Obama has voted present over 100 times; not yes or no, but present! Come on, Barack, how much courage does it take to place a vote one way or another and make it part of the record? What is this, more situational ethics or another case of being too cute, once again? Some would even call this kind of behavior deceptive.
Now compare the courage of McCain when he was a prisoner of war! His captors offered McCain an opportunity to leave years early and he chose to stay with this men. That takes courage! How much courage does it take to cast a vote? My guess is, a lot less than spending 5 years as a prisoner of war in Viet Nam.
Hillary gets up every morning and fights to win this nomination in order to make this country the country it can be . . . all of this in the face of occasional ridicule and a national media that long ago wanted her out so they could continue their inane narrative about Barack.
Let’s not forget to mention the assorted “fast friends” who have chosen to jump ship while wrapping themselves with intellectual dishonesty about the rationale behind their switching. In the face of all of this, Hillary fights on for the heart and soul of this country . . . that takes courage!
