Politics is not limited to Washington or the national scene. Politics, after all, is the attempt to get something for yourself or those who support you whether it is the best choice or not. And, right now, petty politics is rife in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Everyone knows that the Packers are being foolish in not welcoming back the best player that the Packers organization has probably ever known. We all want to know why? Why are the Packers spending so much time, money and effort to keep the best player OFF the team?
It can’t be because they question whether he can play because it was only a few months ago that Favre played at a championship level. And, seeing Favre coaching kids in his hometown shows him to be buff and ready to go.
It can’t be based on the expense because Mr. Murphy just flew down in a private jet to offer $20 million to Favre to NOT play!!!
No. The general consensus among us Packer fans is that both Ted Thompson and Coach McCarthy are not only arrogant and obstinate, but that they are stupid! And the directors and Mr. Murphy should be drawn and quartered for going to such lengths to support TT’s and McCarthy’s egos and bad decisions.
This is not a question of whether Rodgers is ready to play. This is a question of whether the egos of the general manager and coach are more important than giving the team the chance to win football games. If the Packers want the best chance of winning games this year, bring back Favre!!
If you had a serious medical condition, whom would you ask for help? Would it be a plumber, a mechanic, a grocery clerk? While you might discuss your problems with them, you would seek definitive help from an expert, wouldn’t you?
In almost every circumstance, the best advice comes from experts in that field. That is why courts give credence to experts and their educated opinion. That is why you call a certified plumber if you have a leaky pipe, or an auto mechanic for the knocks in your car.
However, I have yet to see any field or endeavor where Senator Obama is recognized as an authority. Why? He simply is too young to have had enough time to become an expert. He has tried community relations for a few years. He has tried being a Senator for a few months. And, suddenly, he believes he is ready to be President of the United States!!!
He might consider himself ready, and he is definitely a smooth operator. But, most of us prefer someone tried and true, like Senator McCain.
So, Obama voted yes on the FISA bill. Funny how the ”savior” to the demoCRAPic party is a flip flopper just like every other LIEberal. But, unlike the a Republican, he will not be dragged through the mud for it. This will quickly be over and done with within a few days.
There is this crazy love fest for Obama, when we know nothing about him, his past voting records, or anything. The only claim to fame he has is that he is black and has a wonderful speaking voice.
No experience. No vote.
Senator Obama is planning to visit the Mid-East as a means of showing he has enough expertise in International Affairs to be President. This will be his first trip in a donkey’s age –how fitting for a Democrat!– and also as a part of a Congressional expedition.
This certainly serves him well. He will claim to understand the Mid-East, after a whirlwind tour. And, he will have the taxpayers pay for the trip because he is going as “our” representative.
First, many of us would love to have taxpayers pay for our trips, too! And, to have it count toward Presidential aspirations has to be the penultimate power play.
Secondly, what makes anyone believe that such a trip will suddenly make Senator Obama an expert? True expertise can only come through long experience, such as Senator McCain has learned through the years.
It’s ironic that Democrats believe that one trip will make the Democratic nominee an expert on foreign affairs. After all, how many Americans have visited other states or countries? Few of us would then claim to be experts on those areas.
The basic problem with the Democrats’ nominee is that he is too young and too inexperienced to be President of the United States. His most obvious asset is his voice. Like Charleton Heston or James Earl Jones, he can “play” President very well. But, “talk” is cheap. The real question remains –is he qualified?
Based solely on the fact that he is ONLY a first term senator and one who has served minimal time in that job, he is obviously not qualified to handle the reins of the largest, most influential country in the world. Although the Democrats will trumnpet this Mid-East trip as filling in the blanks for their nominee, he will Not be the new and improved Senator Obama! He remains the old, liberal, inexperienced orator who wants to be President!
