NYT and the McCain bomb.

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on February 24, 2008

Why did the NYT publish that hatchet job on McCain if not to discredit him? I doubt that it was to aid Obama. He’s from Chicago. I think they are making room at the top for NYC Mayor Bloomberg now that it looks like Clinton may not get the Demo nod. There was talk in May 2007 of Mayor Bloomberg running as an independent with Sen. Chuck Hagel (Vietnam vet who voted against invading Irak) and this gossip has surfaced again to great denials by Mike B. I might be reading too much into this but in the event M.B. does come out of the election closet with Hagel or some other farmboy on his arm, let us not forget who it was that blocked off the streets of NYC in Feb. of 2003 so that the anti-Irak invasion protesters couldn’t form a critical mass and exercise their right of free speech. It was a dangerous and mean-spirited thing to do. Very patronizing, Bush-league. 911 the excuse. Prime. I was one of the many thousands of frustrated marchers out in the cold that day caught in a dead-end street with little choice but to go and warm-up in one of NYC’s cozy restos and abandoning the cause. Too bad. A lot of blood has been spilled. Who was it that decreed that every outing in NYC has to be to a museum or a department store?

    Xcept that the times article seems to have helped McCain. Who knows what the actual intent was… or if there was only one intent. In physics, if I “remember” correctly, when various forces act in more than one direction, the vector must be determined and in these cases , is not always predetermined.

    To Hector the vector:

    I’ve read about McCain’s rise in popularity (with men) but the polls (what do they know?) show that Obama trumps McCain even though a friend in Florida claims Obama is unelectable. If the GOP could prove that McCain was unsuitable could they replace him with a winning Bloomberg/Hagel combo? re the march of feb 03 Bloomberg can play the 911 card & Hagel (if he’s the bride) is squeeky clean (like a virgin, so far.) What i’m complaining about is that 2/3 of the people that marched into roadblocks that day causing them to suffer mild panic attacks and hypothermia were middle-aged or seniors who opposed the war. We were treated like naive unruly children & not calmed by another chapter from My Pet Goat.

    Actually, the particular vector to which I was referring, was McCain’s trajectory from the NYT article.
    I doubt that Bloomborg would be cast to do the GOP ad. His shenanigans as traffic director wouldn’t suffice for the Limbergaugh, Colter connoisseurs of aromatic cheeses and horse manure… of which there was plenty following the february march of the bullish variety during the irrationalizations of the traffic director/mayor.
    One might well wonder about his present tense, and where his current vector points

    So I’m not the only one thinking along these lines. here’s a comment from a huffpo story about mccain choosing a younger running mate.

    –hummm, scary but probably true. Another Bush in the White House to continue the Bu$hCo legacy, which includes murder and plundering the coffers of the United States taxpayers.

    McCain is imploding and Bloomberg will be the GOPs candidate.
