McCain, Powell, Biden to be honored by Obama at dinners on the eve of his inauguration.

I guess my invite got lost in the mail, oh well. In another photo opportunity to give the impression that Barack Obama will be a "unifying" President modeling Abraham LIncoln, Obama is planning to honor John McCain, Colin Powell and Joe Biden at three dinners on the eve of his inauguration. According to Obama's inaugural committee, the three dinners across Washington are to honor "leaders who worked across party lines". Obama claims that the dinners will honor Americans who put their country ahead of their political party. He also claims that bipartisanship was a central theme of his campaign and transition to power. As I'm typing this story, I'm expressing a sarcastic stone faced smirk. Outside of the media and Obama's supporters, who in their right mind will buy this dribble? I know I don't and with very good reason. Obama spent most of his time in the U.S Senate running for President. In the few times he did vote on bills, he managed to establish the most liberal voting record in the U.S Senate in 2007. What Obama is doing is honoring those who helped him win the election. He's just creating a theme to make himself sound "above the fray" and "noble". I can think of a person that "put his country first" and risked being ostracized by his own Party for helping John McCain. That person is U.S Senator Joe Lieberman from Connecticut . Because Lieberman crossed the political aisle to support Bush on Iraq and the war on terror as well as campaign for McCain, Democrats treated Lieberman like absolute garbage. It was only because of independents that he won re election. He had to run as an Independent is his state of Connecticut, because he lost in the Democrat primary in 2006 to Ned Lamont. Lieberman is a solidly liberal Democrat. His only "cardinal sin" was that he supported the Iraq War. Top Democrats threatened to expelled Lieberman from his Chairman position of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee. Joe Lieberman had the most to lose by reaching across the aisle then any of the people Obama is so called "honoring". Even though I'm a hard right conservative, I believe that if anyone deserves to be honored is Joe Lieberman. I'm sure Obama and Democrats feel the complete opposite of course. I find it hilarious that Obama's inauguration committee called Powell, McCain and Biden, "leaders". What were any of those mentioned ever leaders of? John McCain was never a Republican majority or minority leader in the Senate. As for Colin Powell, he never held a public office position in his life. It can't be said that Powell reached across the aisle in the support of Obama, because Powell never endorsed anybody before anyways. Then there is BIden. Biden did help Republicans on some business legislation in his career, because his state of Delaware is a very business friendly state when it comes to businesses incorporating there as well as credit card companies setting up their head quarters there. During his career Biden was given the nickname "Mr. MBNA". That stood for Maryland Bank North America. MBNA was bought out by Bank of America several years ago. I also noticed that a certain type of Republican isn't being honored by Obama. McCain and Powell are both Republicans, but both aren't conservatives. Before McCain thought about running for President, Democrats praised McCain as "their favorite Republican". Also McCain at one time came very close to switching parties and becoming a Democrat. That is why I said before that these dinners to honor McCain, Biden and Powell are noting more then entertainment before the big spectacle too follow twenty four hours later.

Careful, careful, Tyrone!

Even tepid commendation of Lieberman could bring upon you the wrath of the anti-Jewish paleoconservative establishment, which believes the U.S. government has been wrongly hijacked by people in pursuit of a global empire for the benefit of Israel and multi-national corporations with whom they have close ties.

You wouldn't want to be called an anti-American "liberal," now, would you?

Paleocons don't hold the patent to the "NWO", one currency jewish conspiracy. There are kooks on both sides of the political and ideological divide that share that warped mindset.I am some what pissed at the recent comments made by Pat Buchanan. Buchanan accused Israel of carrying out a "blitzkrieg" against Gaza and turning it into a "concentration camp.". So the right has it's share of dingbats just like the left.

True enough, CB, but at least MY kooks don't sing the Horst Wessel Song.

"Kooks?"

Buchanan IS your guy. That crazy fool IS American paleoconservatism. Gov. Palin was wearing one of HIS buttons back in '96.

And let's just say that Pre-WWII isolationism isn't the only thing on the true paleos' minds.

Get 'em drunk at some Nationalist function and they'll let it slip that they'd feel a little more comfortable if you, Tyrone, sat in the back of the bus and drank from a separate water fountain. Oh, and please enter the meeting via the servants' entrance.

Holy crap.

Skippy "Buchanan IS your guy. That crazy fool IS American paleoconservatism. Gov. Palin was wearing one of HIS buttons back in '96."

Palin wore Buchanan's button because he visted alaska, she did not endorse him for anything. Your right skippy, Buchanan is a paleo, are you under the foolish assumption that every paleoconservative think alike or believe the same thing? If you do, you need to broaden your thinking my friend. There are many issues that me and Buchanan are in total agreement with. The issue of Israel is one that me and him aren't on the same page by a a mile.

skippy "And let's just say that Pre-WWII isolationism isn't the only thing on the true paleos' minds."

In the issue of trade and expanding an economy, Isolationism never works, and no its not the only thing on paleo's minds. Why would you think that skippy?

I see skippy. You "perception" of what a paleo conservative is. Since your new to my blog skippy, let me explain something to you that you might not know about me. Trying to debate me by using my race hasn't worked by anyone since I started this blog three years ago. Race baiting me is like trying to build a foundation on quick sand. It's futility at best. Maybe the true racism in this equation is from you skippy. It seems like you have a stereotype of conservatives based on the color of their skin.
