McCain Congratulates Obama in Call

By Shailagh Murray
NEW YORK -- Sen. John McCain called Sen. Barack Obama on Wednesday evening to congratulate him for becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Obama spokeswoman Linda Douglass described the conversation between the two general-election rivals as "short" and "cordial." McCain and Obama agreed they were looking forward to a "civil discussion" in the months ahead.

"Idiot Red-Neck"?

Soooooooo, O'Bombasamabots think people who work in the sun doing Agriculture, Construction, or other Out-Door labors, are "Idiots" huh?

Sounds like some Bloviation coming from some Punk-A College CHILD, who FAILS to realize, Farm-Boys graduate from little insignificant places like Texas A&M, and the University of TEXAS(Caps due to it being the Nation's LARGEST). That Construction ENGINEERS are also Graduates, even if they have Zero Humanities!

See Child, WORK means having to get in the Sun sometimes! Then FOOL, all those Un-Educated Laborers, well, THEY are the populous BASE Elitists NEED!

Hope that was not directed at THEM-Then Again-I'm SURE it was! ;~)

Dimocrats-Country, does not mean DUMB!

It just appears that way hearing their Music! ;~)

I have to laugh reading some comments especially these about "socialism" because it just shows how less people know about it.
Btw my bet is that nancysabet is not woman at all but some idiotic redneck who listens Rush Bimbo too much...

Frankly, the Dem party as I knew is past tense. So I don't care if it dies from its corruption now. It deserves to do so and could be best for the country, replacing it with a new party that might bring back those millions of voters who are, present tense, disgusted with the "new" Dems. There's nothing new about them to those of us who know Chicago politics.

Anything is better than McCain.

P.S. How was Rush's show today?

Does Hussein Obama really imagine he can wave his Magic Hopey Changey Wand and all white women, Latinos gays and lesbians, Garlic Noses, Catholics, Jews, Old People, and "Bitter Hicks" are going to get amnesia?
Does he not even know that he is still insulting us by continuing to pooh-pooh how much we really do not like him--by being an arrogant ass and assuming we will just fall into place?
Is there something wrong with this man? I mean I know he's a Narcissist but this is even well beyond that.
Does he not know we are serious?
Or are we just so insignificant to him that he just expects that we will actually just sit down and shut up? Half a vote, perhaps? Indeed.

Just what McCain needs -- ten opportunities to appear senile and incompetent compared to the young and vigorous Democrat.

I say ten isn't enough! Let's agree to fifteen!

While I commend both Candidates for trying to shake hands before the Fight, and "Keep it Clean", it is still going to be a Knock Down-Drag Out FIGHT.

As has already been shown, BOTH groups have "Independent" Hatchet Men(And Children).

Trying to tell George Soros and Tommy Daschle to behave, is A TOTAL WASTE OF BREATH!

However, allow me to mention FIRST TODAY, what will be Foremost by tonight.

"And the Vice Presidents are?" ;~)

That Folks, is what will make or break the campaigns of both Candidates. Veep selections and Team Members.

What is unfortunate, is the Dimocrat Socialists do not have much in the way of Bona Fide Executives(Including Barry and Billary),

And the American People are too STUPID to care if Non-Executives get the Executive Branch!

Government controlled and regulated by Legislating Lawyers, IS Socialism! :-(

During Sen. McCain's "stirring" speech the other night -- oh, yeah, the same night that Sen. Obama reached the necessary delegate level -- McCain said that Obama was repeating the theme of McCain being a repeat of Bush because it would take numerous attempts to persuade people to believe what is not true.

(Sorry for the involved setting, but I thought it would help set the stage for what follows.)

Just came across this quote of our current president from May 2005:

"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."

Thank you, Mr. President, for doing precisely that -- at the cost of thousands of dead and wounded soldiers.

Obviously even McCain knows something about manners. A bit late, but well. Where is Hillary's congratulations? Obama had to learn about her plans from the media!

This is why even I as an European bristle at the thought of her being your President.

Barrack Obama is A TROJAN HORSE! He claims to be a friend of America yet he's actually quite the opposite. Does anyone understand what he really is!?!? He Hates America more than Hitler Hated the Jews. His hate is unforgiving and everlasting! He is ACTING! Simply ACTING! Think about his church! He was there for over 20 Years, that's 20 years multiplied by 52 Sundays, which equals 1,040 Anti-American Sermons! He then, finally, signs an "official resignation" and we're all supposed think everything's alright?!? The KKK should have Sunday Church and we can all attend for 1,040 Sundays then just "resign", I'm sure noone would ever think we still shared the KKK's views... WAKE UP!!!!!! "IF" America has a 2nd Civil War it will be called "The War of the Free" I am ashamed of our country, just ashamed... We have become the United States of Retardica! If "we" fall the world will... We are a Benevolent Country, GOD BLESS AMERICA! Has far as the War in Iraq, I know we don't want to be in war... BUT! Do you really think that all those people in the WTC Towers wanted to Die!??!? NO! We are forced to go to war! Al Queda is in Iraq, we are in Iraq. We have to stop whining about gas prices, it will get better! This is not the Great Depression!

Very gracious. Now, will Barack HUSSEIN Obama accept the 10 joint townhall meetings across America? Will he agree to carpool? Will he select Hillary DIANE Clinton as VP nominee? Will he accept public financing for the general election?
