The Juggernaught or the Silly Boys, You Decide. I can't

Obama Decided to take a new track in his attempt to bring home the Democratic Presidential bid. He began hitting her on the issue of Social Security. He claimed that she doesn't have a detailed definition of what she would do to save social security. I believe the quote went something like "The American people deserve a presidential candidate that would be honest and detailed about what they plan to do about social security". Very daring. It has the chance of hitting a real blow to her but also hurts his chances of getting a VP nod or even a cabinet post.

In all fairness she has little detail as to what she would do but has put together a list of actions she would preform to build a detailed plan. Very shrewd. all the promise with out any of the consequences of a real plan. My favorite part of this story is her response. She put out an add attacking President Bush on his record regarding social security. WOW! That was political astuteness at it's greatest. It attacks the thing her base hates the most, keeps her hands clean from hurting Dems, she is going to desperately need Obama's supporters to win the race and subtly emasculates Obama.


So what did our astute Republican candidates do recently. Well Mitt shows up to get on the New Hampshire ballot and claims that Fred Thompson is a Johnny come lately to the illegal immigration issue. He claims that Fred was in the Senate for several years and did nothing about illegal immigration. So When Fred show up to get on the New Hampshire ballot and is confronted with what Mitt said, he responds that Mitt is a flip flopper on the issue of illegal immigration. Supposedly Mitt was for the recently failed immigration bill and when it got ugly changed his position.

Talk about silly boys. At least they are being honest. A little childish but honestly immature. I don't feel anything Clinton does is honest. However, Fred Thomson seems to have accomplished very little as a senator and I'm not clear as to why he retired. I would like to know that. Mitt on the other hand seems to say whatever he thinks people want to hear. I don't agree with Rudy on a lot of issues but I like him better because he seems to honestly believe it and I feel he is genuine. Of course Ron Paul and Chris Dodd are probably the most honest, but being honestly crazy is not a good thing.

So who do I want for President. The very shrewd politically Juggernaut, the person who did nothing for years in the senate or the flip flopper. Maybe the guy that sees UFOs, Dennis Kucinich:
