Clintons vs. Obama

Thomas Sowell has some interesting comments on the sleazy tactics Hillary and Bill Clinton are employing against Senator Barack Obama.

The Clintons, says Sowell, are seeking to reduce Obama to "just a black candidate."

"It is not that the Clintons are racists," Sowell writes. "It is just that they will use whatever they want, in order to get whatever they want — and the effect on the country does not bother them. That was the hallmark of the first Clinton administration. There is no reason to doubt that this will be the hallmark of the next Clinton administration, if there is one."

Of course, this explains why Bill and our very own Jean Chretien were such good buddies: they both employed the same cynical tactics.

The Clintons... sleazy??

Who knew?

BTW the only candidate remaining in this race with any decency is the Libertarian candidate, Dr. Ron Paul... clearly perhaps a little too much decency for some of the powers that be!!

However, if the Republicans go with yet another liberal spending hawk in McCain and the Democrats go with a liberal spending hawk in Clinton, why exactly have US elections anymore?

They could just turn it back into a monarchy where either a Clinton or Bush can draw straws for the leadership every four years and then decide on how to tax the sheeple and spend foolishlessly.

McCain or Clinton? GROAN!

Canada better start diversifying our trade partners QUICKLY because the USA appears to be going down, and don't seem to be showing any understanding on how to fix their mess that Canadian neocons like David Frum and Mark Steyn helped to create in the first place.

More so with Hillary because she's about as interesting on the campaign trail as a bag of hammers.

She needs all the help she can get.
