The middle of the night New York Times bombshell reported about 2008 Presidential Candidate, Senator John McCain, and Vicki Iseman, has evoked shades of the former President Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky sex controversy during his term in office. I cannot help but recall a solemn-faced Bill wagging his finger in American's faces while he resolutely stated, "I did not have sex with that woman -- Miss Lewinsky."
And I guess my mind went blank and did not light up again until the picture appeared showing the two of them touching hands across an outdoor gathering of Clinton supporters, followed by the sound of "the other shoe dropping." After that, I stayed woke throughout the entire Congressional impeachment of then President William Jefferson Clinton. To this date, he and his wife and their surrogates have continued to deny there was any such impeachment.
Political news pundits are standing by McCain in the same way as they did Clinton. However, I keep hearing them add, "unless the New York Times . . . ." and "if the New York Times . . . ." followed by the words, "smear campaign." Who can we believe? It appears to me the New York Times reported and the radio and tv news pundits decided while, at the same time, decrying the nerve of the New York Times and their unnamed source(s) to allow their "scurrilous" report to get out after McCain has all but secured the Republican nomination, as expressed, in part, by Pat Buchanan in a tv interview on MSNBC (Thurs., February 21, 2008, 12:38 p.m. est.)
Could it be that the radio and tv news pundits must now actually become journalists and reporters that they hold themselves out to be? After all, their various national network news appearances are made under the guise of reporting the "news."
Come on New York Times, give us something. Go to video tape? Go to photos that haven't been photoshopped? Go to tape recordings? Go to named sources? How about telephone records? Eyewitness reports? Girlfriends? Guy friends? Anything to defend your own news report and reputation? Discerning skeptics want to know of which I am one. Meanwhile, the New York Times is standing by its story. We shall see.

Do not disparage, because you are not alone. A lot of people are expressing their discontent about the news media lovefest with Obama. My prayer is that the heart of Americans will catch up with the mind of the media to overcome their attempts to crown Obama as King of America by (their) divine right. If people think we have seen trouble before - wait until trouble really comes to the door via the White House turned Black (or feminine). Obama says he will link hands with Iran and Syria and terrorist nations. Hillary says she will rollback the advances made by Pres. Bush and that she will give up much of the authority of the Office. What??? McCain won't be much better. In the interest of patriotism, security, and the general welfare of this nation, we'd better thank God for President Bush and pray that Gov. Mike Huckabee will continue to pursue the Office. We know he exhibits genuine respect for the Office and reverence for God.
I cannot stand to look at Obama much less hear him. Can you say, "Jim Jones?" I agree with all the others whose comments have given us a look beyond Obama's facade. Christians wake up! Americans unite to return this nation to God. The candidates who run from that necessity need to keep running out of this country. Stay on the wall. God bless America!
Can you say, "Jim Jones?" Obama frightens me. He's too slick! Sound familiar?
What is it about the Christian community that they would accept from an all-talk,
no-action newcomer who has no tangible record of worth everything that is
anathema to our faith in the Lord Jesus? How is it they reject the Preacher,
Mike Huckabee, and don't want him to express his faith in the Lord, while
they run over themselves to heap glory and praise upon Obama? It was really
frightening when I heard one tv news pundit announce, "Obama has more money
than God." Imagine!
Democrats believe their choice is about race and gender/race (i.e., a black man
or a white woman). And they choose to take form over substance. Obama has yet to account for his missing "record." He scoffs at the idea that he needs, as he laughingly says, "seasoning." The truth is, he does! This is not a game or beauty pageant. It is
about this nation and our God, which makes people clamor to get here and to stay.
It's great that we have come this far through the blood and trials of so many
on the frontlines of "CHANGE," but we do not have to take anybody for the
highest position in America based on sentimentality and racial pride. If we had
racial pride and gender identification, it should spur us on to seek the very best
and accept nothing less. And that goes for the GOP candidates, also. McCain
has told us that "there is no perfect candidate." But we'd better be very sure
that candidate is striving by God's hand to become as close to perfection as is
possible in the eyes of God (and man, too). We were proved right about Romney
and we will be proved right about the remaining candidates, too. My prayer is
that Americans will wake up before it is too late and that all Christians will
come together in the true knowledge of our Lord to prayerfully consider how
our nation will be able to recover the true meanings of Godly values, morality,
mores, principles, and common courtesy and respect. And, return to worship
The writer of that article (below) makes a correct assessment. Pay particular
attention to that very last paragraph in Jim Brown's article entitled, "Obama a media darling says, conservative analyst." (source: OneNewsNow, 215/2008)
