COUNT DOWN to the White House… Obama and America’s big day…

 It’s count down time, baby.

With less than a week to go the campaigns are heating up. McCain has decided to turn up the negatives as he has all the burners working overtime.

It was thought by some that rather than going out looking like a bad looser McCain would opt for the high road.  But somehow he has not found that road to be a likable choice for him. 

Perhaps John McCain is holding out falsely for what many of  the pundits have repeatedly chimed, “that the polls could have it all wrong.”

And they might well have.  But even so…it still won’t be in McCain’s favor.  The likihood is that the pundits have under-estimated ‘the Obama effect’ rather than having not properly measured it all.

There is no doubt that many Americans are fed up with the way things have been going in the country.  And that they will show up at voting locations all across this country this coming Tuesday to prove it. 

But very little has been said about the Hispanic vote or that of women.  During the Primaries they were the ‘hot’ topic…the ‘women’s vote’ and the ‘Hispanic vote.’  But lately we had heard very little about them.  I perdict that women will hit the polls like never before as well as the Hispanics…and that they will favor Obama.

I also believe that though McCain may have believed that he had most of the senior votes…he better take another look.  They are no fools…look for seniors in very large numbers to be casting their votes for Obama, as well.  We’re talking Medicaid, health insurance, foreclosures, gas prices, raising food costs, crashing retirement funds and everything else. 

It’s Obama…Obama…Obama, baby.   It’s destiny.

Amid all the excitement of the race to the White House this year, I cannot help but think of the news anchor woman,  Anne Pressly, who was attacked and has subsequently died.  When all this got started she had no idea that she would not be here to see it to conclusion.   Nor when she decided to enter into the field of TV Journalism did she realize that one day she was going to be subject of many news stories.

It is but a sad reminder that we are not promised tomorrow…none of us. 

Police said that it appeared to have been a random robbery but she was beaten badly…that would really suggest a bit more than a random robbery.

The police also said that ‘it appeared to be a robbery’ because her purse was taken.  But people have become so sophisticated today with all the various television programs from Law & Order and everything else…that they know what to do if they want to throw the police off their trail. 

It is for this reason I do not believe DNA is a good source for determining whether or not a person is guilty or innocent…as if I couldn’t get a strand of someone’s hair and leave it at the scene of the crime.  Based upon that…that person would be doom. 

In fact, it takes a whole lot less today to incriminate someone based on DNA.  Just yesterday while taking a seat in lab the keyboard to the computer had a long strand of hair attached to it.  Wow, imagine if I was a criminal what I couldn’t have done with that?

I deeply feel for this young woman’s family and all victims of crime.  There have been many times when I came close…but God said, “no.”  

And I am so happy He did…and that He was there to keep me and protect me.   Always, right there whenever I have needed Him.  Which has been every moment…and second of my life…sometimes more and sometimes less.  But I always needed Him…to be right there in my life…whether I knew it or not.  And many times I did not know it.

Since having turned to this topic…let me also express my heartfelt sympathy for the Hudson family due to the terrible events which took place this past week.  There are no words…neither rhythm nor reason that can explain it.  And there is nothing that time cannot diminish…including pain.

My goodness, what about those cry baby Rupublicans this season?

For years we all watched how the Republicans have out raised and spent the Democratics from one election into the other in terms of money, volunteers etc…etc…etc…   Now, the shoe is on the other foot….and all we hear is those Republicans crying about ‘how Obama said he would but he didn’t.’  

That is…how Obama said that he would not turn down government funds, which would have seriously limited his spending…whereas McCain took the government money.    As well McCain should have…since for the greater part of his campaign McCain has always had problems raising money to finance it. 

Obama on the other hand…had no way of knowing before hand, when he made the statement on government financing and accepting those funds,  that he was going to raise the money which his campaign has.  Meaning Obama has never needed to accept those funds…and McCain did.

So, why wouldn’t he have taken the sure money?

Seriously, if you were Barrack Obama…and had been capable of raising more money than the Clinton’s, George Bush and everybody else.  Then why would you opt to take the government money that would restrict your campaign to ‘x’ amount of dollars?

It would have been ill-logical…and nobody in their right mind would have done it.  Not even McCain if the shoe had been on his foot. 

So, Palin and McCain both need to stop crying foul…and all those other Republicans too.  Because you would have done the exact same thing…and to say that you would not have is well….  Well….  Well, you would be lying.

This coming Tuesday is coming fast.  And I am excited…and I hope that you are too.  Please whatever else you may have planned for Tuesday don’t forget to get out and vote…and check to see if anyone around you…or near would like a ride.

Also be sure…just to avoid any undue problems come Tuesday…just drop by your town Voter Registration office and just double check to make sure that everything is okay with your registration.  I have had this happen to me twice…and they said it was because we had not returned a census form. 

It doesn’t hurt to check so that when Tuesday comes you can get in and out of the your local polls without headache or problems.

Smile and have a beautiful day.

Have a beautiful day…and thank you for reading.
