ANDY MARTIN: I HAVE A QUEASY FEELING GEORGE BUSH HAS MADE A MAJOR BLUNDER, AND ELECTED BARACK OBAMA
DID SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN ACQUIESCE IN HIS OWN DEFEAT?
(NEW YORK)(September 25, 2008) There he was on the front page of every newspaper today: Senator Barack Obama, invited by President George Bush to help solve the “financial crisis” that is supposedly threatening America. I have a queasy feeling Bush and Senator John McCain may have made the biggest blunder in presidential politics since President Jerry Ford in 1976 said Poland was not in the Soviet sphere of influence.
I know, I know, “County First,” not politics. But are they really putting their country first if they elect Barack Obama and inflict Obama on the world for the next four years?
McCain’s biggest calling card has been Obama’s “stature gap.” Barry O could stage a rock festival in a Berlin park, but no one in Washington gave him any credibility. Obama has no experience, no record and no particular level of support among Washington Democrats except profuse “lip service.” Who the hell is Barack Obama?
He may have become the next president courtesy of George Bush, and a massive blunder by John McCain.
Wednesday night Obama was already claiming that the Bush White House had accepted “his policies” to solve the financial “crisis.” As this is being written there are reports a “deal” has been reached. Obama will have attained the last stop on his self-referential crusade by being accepted at the White House as a statesman and dealmaker. Good grief.
Bush and McCain have erased Obama’s stature gap. How is McCain going to say Obama lacks experience if Obama is being called to the White House to solve a (in my opinion nonexistent) “crisis?”
Bush and McCain just handled Obama a loaded gun. Watch Obama shoot Republicans with it, and claim that his “strong leadership” led to a “successful negotiation” which culminated in “rescuing America.” Who gave Obama this weapon? Why George Bush and John McCain, of course. When the president calls you in a “crisis,” Obama has a legitimate claim to stature.
I have to give a speech to a Republican dinner this evening. I am not a happy camper. On the other hand, the people who gave us the mess in Washington are also influential in the 2008 campaign, so what can we expect? Chopped liver?
Fasten your seat belts. It’s a mess.

URGENT APPEAL: The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama is raising money to fight Barack Obama. http://CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com. Please give generously up to the maximum of $100. Our ability to fight and defeat Barack Obama is directly dependent on the generosity of every American.”
The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama limits itself to $100 maximum contributions; there are no bundlers, fat cats or illegal contributions. Obama is opposed to everything America stands for,” says Executive Director Andy Martin. “But while Obama has raised more than a third of a BILLION dollars, his opponents have raised virtually nothing. We can’t just sit back and expect John McCain to do the job all alone. Americans can either contribute now, or pay later. If we do not succeed, Obama will.”
FULL DISCLOSURE: I have decided to oppose Barack Obama’s election and have become Executive Director of The Stop Obama Coalition, http://StopObamaCoalition.com and CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com. By default, I have become the national leader of the anti-Obama movement. I am not acting as either a Democrat or Republican. I have had no contact whatsoever with the McCain Campaign. The views expressed are entirely independent of McCain. I am not a member of any political organization. I am acting as an American citizen who sincerely believes Obama is not the man we need in the Oval Office. We are running a very dynamic and aggressive campaign against Obama. We know how. We are the recognized experts in the field. I will, however, continue to write my columns for ContrarianCommentary.com. /s/ Andy Martin
