I’m Not The Only One!

I suppose you might be able to accuse me a little bit of Obama worship.  I mean, okay, fine I admit it, though I try not to get overboard with it, I realize that sometimes I gush a bit much, but you know, there are worse people off than me.  And there are definitely worse people to have suffer from it at all.

It’s got to be at least a little bit embarrassing for the McCain camp to find out one such person is amid his own ranks.  Senior campaign advisor Mark McKinnon has said that should John McCain win the nomination, he will have to drop out because he would feel “uncomfortable” attacking Barack Obama.

Parroting a similar tune I hear a lot of unconventional Obama supporters sing (ie. Republicans, libertarians, etc.), McKinnon says he disagrees with Obama on most issues, but still manages to “gush” about him.

I will second McKinnon on one thing specifically, if it really does come down to McCain vs. Obama, it truly will be a great race.

    Below is a comparison of Clinton and Obama Senate Accomplishments so you can decide for yourself who has the Beef?

    Check out Amadeo Sogni’s article A Light in the Darkness where he actually does research in comparing legislative records of both Clinton and Obama. It was very illuminating and I would like someone to try to debunk it.

    Sogni states:
    Senator Clinton, who has served only one full term (6yrs.), and another year campaigning, has managed to author and pass into law, (20) twenty pieces of legislation in her first six years.
    These bills can be found on the website of the Library of Congress (www.thomas.loc.gov), but to save you trouble, I’ll post them here for you.

    1. Establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site.
    2. Support the goals and ideals of Better Hearing and Speech Month.
    3. Recognize the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.
    4. Name courthouse after Thurgood Marshall.
    5. Name courthouse after James L. Watson.
    6. Name post office after Jonn A. O’Shea.
    7. Designate Aug. 7, 2003, as National Purple Heart Recognition Day.
    8. Support the goals and ideals of National Purple Heart Recognition Day.
    9. Honor the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton on the bicentennial of his death.
    10. Congratulate the Syracuse Univ. Orange Men’s Lacrosse Team on winning the championship.


    Now, I would post those of Obama’s, but the list is too substantive, so I’ll mainly categorize. During the first (8) eight years of his elected service he sponsored over 820 bills. He introduced
    233 regarding healthcare reform,
    125 on poverty and public assistance,
    112 crime fighting bills,
    97 economic bills,
    60 human rights and anti-discrimination bills,
    21 ethics reform bills,
    15 gun control,
    6 veterans affairs and many others.
    His first year in the U.S. Senate, he authored 152 bills and co-sponsored another 427. These included:
    **the Coburn-Obama Government Transparency Act of 2006 (became law),
    **The Lugar-Obama Nuclear Non-proliferation and Conventional Weapons Threat Reduction Act, (became law),
    **The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act, passed the Senate,
    **The 2007 Government Ethics Bill, (became law),
    **The Protection Against Excessive Executive Compensation Bill, (In committee), and many more.
    In all since enter the U.S. Senate, Senator Obama has written 890 bills and co-sponsored another 1096.
