There He Goes Again

Why can't we just have a civilized debate about important issues, such as the war Islamic extremists continue to wage against us?

The Democrats just won't do it. During the 2004 presidential campaign, Kerry started the negative campaign. In 2008 Obama seems determined to stick with his liberal Chicago-style politics as usual, instead of his promised "new kind of politics"

As I posted before, Obama's new politics amounts to nothing more than "distortion to the point of rank falsehood" and "seriously misleading voter -- if not outright lying to them."

Last night, Obama's opening up act, liberal talk show host Ed Schultz, called Senator McCain a 'warmonger.' This just days after Senator McCain's remarkable speech on foreign affairs, during which he shared views on the depravity of war:

I detest war. It might not be the worst thing to befall human beings, but it is wretched beyond all description. When nations seek to resolve their differences by force of arms, a million tragedies ensue. The lives of a nation's finest patriots are sacrificed. Innocent people suffer and die. Commerce is disrupted; economies are damaged; strategic interests shielded by years of patient statecraft are endangered as the exigencies of war and diplomacy conflict. Not the valor with which it is fought nor the nobility of the cause it serves, can glorify war. Whatever gains are secured, it is loss the veteran remembers most keenly. Only a fool or a fraud sentimentalizes the merciless reality of war. However heady the appeal of a call to arms, however just the cause, we should still shed a tear for all that is lost when war claims its wages from us.

How did Obama and his new politics respond to the hateful language Schultz used to describe John McCain? Obama didn't renounce the name calling. No, Obama thanked Schultz and called him the “voice of progressive radio.”

When Bill Cunningham, made a personal attack on Obama, prior to McCain’s arrival at a town hall meeting,
After McCain learned about Cunningham’s comments, McCain condemned the remarks and dissociated himself with the talk show host. McCain continues to run a “respectful” race and campaign, why can't Obama?

Obama owes McCain and America an apology, more than one actually. One for Obama's misrepresentations about McCain's comments about residual troops remaining in Iraq, and one for Schultz's hate filled and inflammatory language.
