My mother is reluctant about voting for Senator Obama because she is concerned that if he is elected something will happen to him. Mrs. Alma Powell talked General Colin Powell out of walking into the presidency from either party out of the same concern.
Thank you, Senator John McCain for honorably taking the high road today by telling the truth about Senator Obama. I have always said that this contest was between good and really good—a win, win race for a moderate like me. You proved me right.
I was also right in wishing that the African American community would support Republicans like Ray LaHood for what is now obvious reasons. (see the article below) As for as Georgia is concerned, I will support in this blog and publicly any congressional GOP candidate who wants to debate the issues rather than push fear. Remember that Dr. Condoleezza Rice knows too well where this ugliness might be heading.
LaHood: Palin Should Stop It
Steve Miller, WBBM NewsRadio 780 Reporting
CHICAGO — A seven-term Republican Congressman from Illinois is taking issue with fellow Republican Sarah Palin, saying some of the vice presidential candidate’s rallies “don’t befit the office she’s running for.”
Republican Congressman Ray LaHood represents the 18th District: central and western Illinois, including Peoria. He’s retiring in January.
LaHood supports the McCain ticket, but doesn’t like what he sees at some of the McCain-Palin rallies: When Barack Obama’s name has been mentioned by Sarah Palin, there are shouts of “terrorist,” and LaHood says Palin should put a stop to it.
“Look it. This doesn’t befit the office that she’s running for. And frankly, people don’t like it.”
Congressman LaHood says it could backfire on the Republican ticket.
He says the names that Obama is being called, “Certainly don’t reflect the character of the man.”
