It appears that in Sen. John "F--- You" McCain's attempt to be a "civil" Republican presidential nominee, a supporter can not speak the truth about what potentially electing St. Barack Obama, er Sen. Barack Obama, would mean.
Ask Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa).
He told a local newspaper http://www.spencerdailyreporter.com/story/1316727.html that a win by St. Barack would lead to "dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they (radical Islamics) did on September 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror."
There is not one thing wrong with that statement.
One can argue that the Socialists won the 2004 Spanish national elections due to terrorism committed by al-Queda on the Spanish commuter rail system in Madrid that killed 191 people. The election then was very close and the terror act send Spaniards into the hands of the party that said it wanted to leave Iraq.
Oh, maybe it was the fact that Rep. King might have strayed into that middle name of St. Barack's. You know, the one respectable people do not say. HUSSEIN! Yes, it is St. Barack's middle name. Too bad it is a very popular Islamic name, sometimes first but mostly a last name. And, St. Barack was named as a junior as his father, a real paragon of virtue, was Barack Hussein Obama.
But, what Rep. King said was that St. Barack's middle name does matter "because they (radical Islamics) read a meaning into that.
Now, we all know that St. Barack is a committed and practicing Christian. Not my kind of Christian, but a Christian none the less.
But, Rep. King is right. The radical Islamics do read a lot into the name and the fact that St. Barack has said throughout his campaign that he will withdraw all United States forces in the Iraq theatre in the War Against Islamofacsist Terror. He has not backed down.
But, leave to the allies of Sen. "F--- You" McCain to say "F--- You" to a supporter, Rep. King, who states the obvious.
Sen. "F--- You" McCain's travelling press secretary, Brooke Buchanan, said that Rep. King had no affiliation with the McCain campaign. Nice to deny that an actual supporter have nothing to do with the campaign?!?!?! http://FoxNews.com. But, Brookie baby continues:
The senator has been clear that he intends to keep this campaign about the issues. He has condemned similar comments by (radio talk show host) Bill Cunningham. He doesn't agree with (Rep) King's comments. He (McCain) intends to run a respectful race and keep it about the issues.
What Rep. King brought up is a legitimate issue. How the world could perceive the American people electing St. Barack Obama. The middle name thing is that it is an issue. And, in some defense of St. Barack, he could have changed his middle name long ago. He did not. So, he is stuck with it, warts and all. And, he will get some serious commentary about what the name really means to him. And, if he were smart, he would meet it head on and stop whining about it.
Since I believe that Sen. "F--- You" McCain wants to be president, if St. Barack is in fact the Democrat nominee for president, the erstwhile senator will have to find a way to work all of this as part of his campaign. Like it or not, it is an issue.
For the record, Rep. King said that he meant no disrespect about St. Barack's middle name. And, I believe that. Because Rep. King said the obvious, chalk up another supporter run under the Straight Poop Express.
Sen. "F--- You" McCain better get this through his noggin.
This is the big time. Whoever the Democrat nominee is, either St. Barack or Hillary Clinton, they are going to come on you like a ton of bricks and about that much in anvil weight. The Democrats smell total domination of government, the White House and both houses of congress. They will not play by the Marquis of Queensbury rules. They will, if they have to, stoop to the depths of the gutter to take you out.
When that time comes, if you keep throwing your supporters who speak the truth under the Straight Poop Express, there will be few if any left to defend you. It is a two-way street.
For a supporter of Rep. King's stature to be thrown off because he may have, and I stress may have, been a wee bit hyper in the rhetoric department, it shows one of the weaknesses of Sen. "F--- You" McCain's campaign. How they will or will not take on St. Barack Obama.
