Posted by Tigress DEM in General Discussion: Presidential (Through Nov 2009)
Wed Sep 17th 2008, 08:44 PM
I did a quick peek at DU this morning before my hubby needed the pc for work and saw that The View had asked McCain some tough questions and did not buckle under the backlash from the McCain camp.

AFTER I wrote the letter I thought about my audacity of telling a Presidential candidate to PUT UP or SHUT UP. Then it occurred to me that if he gets elected he is a servant of the People, so therefore he will be working for me - well US.




Here's my letter to The View supporting their stand.




Dear Ladies of The View,

Thank You for standing up to the McCains and NOT backing down.

You may have varied opinions on today's issues, but as intelligent people you're aware that NO ONE is entitled to their own facts. A person can have their own "Version of Reality" where "I AM RIGHT and everyone else is wrong," but that doesn't make it so (not even in election season.)

The last perfect man (according to my faith) with 100% clear vision who was entitled to make that statement was hung on a cross by a small group of liars and cowards who manipulated the crowd to keep their own hands clean. AND I know my Savior; John McCain is not Jesus Christ.

Take the faith element out and it still works. We tell criminals, "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime." Lying to the WE THE PEOPLE and expecting the press to be complicit so you can win an election is tantamount to treason against our American right to a fair and honest election. NO ONE, no matter how rich is entitled to have the Presidency handed to him on a silver platter.

I say to McCain, "The time is NOW to put up or SHUT UP. WE need to hear the specifics of your plan to restore Democracy and prosperity to America. And your running mate's credentials need to be vetted by the press and the public. Quit changing the subject."

And another thing, McCain, "There is no prostitute whipping boy with a press pass to ask you the easy questions and let your lies and record slide, so deal with it. Quit whining when you get a tough question. You want to be President; so grow a pair and give an honest answer or SHUT UP."

WE THE PEOPLE deserve a President that can face Helen Thomas in the White House Press Room with honest answers to the toughest questions and a plan for hope.

If McCain can't challenging questions from Joy Behar and Barbara Walters without crying to his handlers, then someone needs to explain to McCain that "handling the truth" has NOTHING to do with "spinning the right lie." Whoopi? Can you also tell him that handling the truth is about the facts as they are and coming up with a grown up plan.

The choice is clear. We need a President that can handle the truth. Obama for President 2008.





I would love it if other people would write in as well, but you guys probably already did September 12th. Ah, the disadvantage of not watching TV much.
