Barack Obama

History, The Sea Dog, The Big Dog and The Bull Dog

Yesterday history was made. The Democrats nominated, for the first time in our history, an African-American candidate for president of the United States.

Sen. John Kerry gave a speech that would have won him the election 4 years ago. From his Speech:

To those who still believe in the myth of a maverick instead of the reality of a politician: I say, let’s compare Senator McCain to candidate McCain.

Candidate McCain now supports the wartime tax cuts that Senator McCain once called irresponsible.

Candidate McCain criticizes Senator McCain’s own climate change bill.

Candidate McCain says he would now vote against the immigration bill that Senator McCain wrote.

Are you kidding? Talk about being for it before you’re against it!

John McCain stood on the deck of an aircraft carrier just three months after 9/11 and proclaimed: “Next up, Baghdad !”

Barack Obama had the judgment to see “an occupation of undetermined length, undetermined cost, and undetermined consequences” that would “only fan the flames of the Middle East .”

Well, guess what? Mission Accomplished!

So who can we trust to keep America safe?

When Barack Obama promised to honor the best traditions of both parties and talk to our enemies John McCain scoffed. George Bush called it: “The false comfort of appeasement.” But today, Bush’s diplomats are doing exactly what Obama said: talking with Iran .

So who can we trust to keep America safe?

When democracy rolled out of Russia and the tanks rolled into Georgia , we saw John McCain respond immediately with the outdated thinking of the cold war. Barack Obama responded like a true friend of Georgia and a statesman of the 21st Century.

So who can we trust to keep America safe?

When Democrats called for a timetable to make Iraqis stand up for Iraq and bring our heroes home, John McCain called it “Cut and Run.” But today, even President Bush has seen the light: He and Prime Minister Maliki agree on – guess what? – a timetable!

So who can we trust to keep America safe?

Next up was the Big Dog himself. Pres. Bill Clinton:

Finally…The Bull Dog! Soon to be Vice-President Joe Biden! Straight shooting and honest!
