Debating Democrats

I watched part of the Democrat debate tonight, and had a few observations. First, Hillary's image looks really, really bad to me. For all the talk about her being the first women president, he comes across as pretty masculine. It's like how drag queens managed to stop looking like men, while not really looking like women. Except the other way around.

John Edwards reminded me just why he comes across as a bit too slick. In addition, he made at least two fairly major and easily avoided factual errors. While complaigning that we aren't looking out for our children anymore, he tried a little compare and contrast with the "previous twenty generations." I assume that he means the previous twenty generations of Americans, but given that a generation is around twenty years, and the United States is only a little older than 200 years, something seems wrong with his math.

His second mistake wasn't really unique to him, but rather a liberal urban legend. He stated that the Founding Fathers created this country so that all the power wouldn't be in the hands of the rich, so that the poor would get any opprotunity. Which is fine, except a) the Founding Fathers rarely refered to America as land of financial opportunity, and b) many of the controversies surrounding the founding of our government revolved around the question of whether or not the people are too stupid to play a large role in government. (If Hillary is elected, I would be inclined to say yes, they are.)

I watched the last half of the debate and I am shocked that some of these people are our elected officials.

Dennis Kucinich blew me away with his UFO crap.

Between he and Ron Paul I dont know how these people became Congressman. And now want to be President?

And these loones question Bush's mental health?

Unreal.

Read the Constitution. Then, after you've done so, listen to what Ron Paul is saying not how he's saying it. You will find that he advocates for the very principles for which this country was founded. It's just we've gotten so completely far away from those principles that merely talking about them seems out of touch.

Additionally, I happen to think he's wrong on a couple of issues (namely foreign policy, and his want for a return to the gold standard rather than Milton Freidman's "floating currency" principle) which is why I wouldn't vote for him. But, when it comes to legitimate government functions, spending, and fiscal policy...believe it or not, he's got a better head on his shoulders than any other guy standing up there (save for probably Tom Tancredo).

I think that fact goes to show why he raked in $5 million in the 3rd quarter. I think a good number of people know sound fiscal policy when they hear it.

Marie's Two Cents points out something the Left never thinks about. They have the nerve to insult Bush, when they need to look at themselves in the mirror. That bunch is scary, Edwards, Obama, Clinton.
