Netanyahu's Line in the Sand

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu drew a line in the sand with his speech to the United Nations. He sted his desire for peace, while making it clear that Israel will see no peace without security. This man is sticking his neck out for his people. He is reviled and hated by a great many world leaders, however, he remains steadfast in his leadership of Israel. His people should be proud to have a leader such as this.

This also raises an interesting scenario for our own President. He must make a decision as to which sode of this line he will stand. Will he join with Europe in their march toward anti-semitism. Quadaffi and Ahmadenijad are waiting; they are confident that they have our President right where thery want him. They believe that they have him in a position of weakness, a position that he, in their eyes, does not have the courage to surmount. President Obama must prove them wrong and stand with Israel.

We as a country must also decide where we are to stand on this line in the sand. Israel has always had a bond with our nation. The Jewish financiers of the Amercian Revolution

Mr. Negativity

The Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds cannot seem to hold back his nastiness. First, he fails to effectively articulate a plan of his own. So what does he do? He criticizes McDonnell for his pro-life beliefs.

Then he still fails to articulate a message. So what does he do? He attacks a thesis that McDonnell wrote twenty years ago. Deeds has been, perhaps, one the the most negative candidates in Virginia's history. Now thats a record he can be proud of!

Back to the Keyboard

I have again found myself extremely strapped for time on this blog, but now I am back posting on the current state of affairs.

The Campaign for Disney's America in Virginia got a boost when Disney announced their aquisition of Marvel, followed by an announcement that future aquisitions were possible. However, it appears that a bidding war could be in the works.

We have also seen President Obama desperately trying to sell his healthcare package that nobody really wants. He basically called Sarah Palin a lair in his speech to Congress a few days ago, only to get his feathers ruffled by Congressman Joe Wilson calling him a liar. Although Joe Wilson did break decorum by outbursting during a Presidential speech, he later apologized to the President. The New Nobility just can't let go of their pride and insist that Joe now apologize to them.

Mike Huckabee is still rocking Fox News on Saturday nights. Whether you personally support him or not, Huckabee has used his platform to shift public opinion.

Lastly, the McDonnell, Bolling, Cuccinelli ticket is running strong here in Virginia. Conservative principles at work; it works folks.

Obama's Taliban Pow-Wow

Since September of 2001 the United States has been locked in mortal combat with Islamic Jihad. They have been locked in conflict with us since our founding. The war in Afghanistan has been a central front in that war. Afghanistan is a gateway of sorts. It is a gateway to Pakistan in the South, to the Islamic Republics to the North, and to Iran in the West. It has been known as the "graveyard of empires," because even great emporers like Alexander the Great could not control this region.

In September of 2001, the United States was plunged into combat against Islamic jihdists who decided to take their stand in this region. Fast forward to today, it is now 2009. President Obama has taken the reigns of power here in the United States, even as this critical battle continues. Although the Taliban has been driven from power, they have takent he opportunity to regroup and they have formed a formidable military force. Reports from the front, indicate that they have taken to more traditional military tactics, using formations and holding their own on the battlefield.

So the situation has gotten thornier for the United States. So what does our fearless new president do? He wants to come to the negotiating table with the Taliban! I am not saying that all dialogue against an enemy should be cut off. On the contrary, if the Taliban want to surrender, then by all means, let's talk. I am concerned, however, that they will not be the ones doing the surrendering.

This is not leadership on the part of President Obama.

McDonnell Scores Big Endorsement

Bob McDonnell has gained the endorsement of noted entrepeneur Sheila Johnson. Sheila Johnson is the co-founder of BET, a businesswoman, and philanthropist.

In the past Ms. Johnson has endorsed and given money to such notable figures as Barack Obama, Tim Kaine, and Mark Warner.

One thing that Mark Warner was often praised for was his ability to appeal to Republican voters. Bob McDonnell has that same appeal to Democrats. Conservative Democrats know that they can trust Bob McDonnell. They know that he has put forward the best solutions when it comes to addressing Virginia's problems.

Bob McDonnell seems poised to forge a bi-partisan coalition with people like Ms. Johnson, in order to take on Virginia's economic problems. Having a governor who can work across the isle to develop solutions will be a little refreshing.

Shannon Spouts Disdain for Tea Party Demonstrators

Democratic candidate Steve Shannon has just walked off the deep end. He has decided that Cuccinnelli is simply too dificult to face directly. So Shannon has decided to go after the thousands of Virginians who attended the Tea Parties.

This move is questionable due to the fact that many independent voters showed up at the Tea Parties. As someone who supported the concept for the movement; I personally am offended that Steve Shannon would take such a condecending tone towards American citizens who simply wanted their voice to be heard.

Shannon allowed his elitist manner to show through here. He simply cannot stand the common man getting out on the street to demand accountability from government.

Steve Shannon owes everyone who attended the Tea Party events an apology. I would not, however, expect the great Steve Shannon to hear the cries of the little people anyway. Then again, when has Deeds, Wagner, or Shannon ever really listened to the cries of the people of this Commonwealth?

McDonnell Generating Excitement

As I sat in my car in my local Wal-Mart parking lot today, I saw yet another vehicle with a McDonnell bumper sticker. Earlier I saw yet another McDonnell bumper sticker in the parking lot of my local post office.

While this alone does not cause me to make all conclusions about this election. I have seen many indications that Bob McDonnell clearly has the momentum on his side. He has a solid message, and it seems to be paying off.

Meanwhile, Creigh Deeds continues to use the same stale attacks against McDonnell, but alas, to no avail. Not only is Creigh Deeds using stale attacks, but the national Democratic establishment continues to spout this kind of junk.

Deeds and his allies can have their stale message. I am voting for a real leader.
