The scene of this terrible accident — Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H. [The third GOP presidential debate -- Tuesday, 5 2007].

My friend Paul Reyes likened them to a “convention of morticians,” in their last debate. Mark Mellman, a pollster says these candidates make the Republican party look like “a front for the Flat Earth Society.” I equate them with a congregation of angry, trembling middle-aged white men.

In fact, Rep. Tom Tancredo, the Congressman from Colorado might have injested a lethal concoction of “Viagra and Cialis” — judging by his shrill, “blood cuddling” and discombobulated allocution.

They threatened nuking Iran with tactical nuclear weapons, kicking out all immigrants. John McCain even insinuated that Bill Clinton started the Kosovo war, comparing it to erroneously Bush’s “illegal” Iraq war.

For the record: The Kosovo War was a conflict between Serbian and Yugoslav security forces and the Kosovo Liberation Army, an Albanian guerilla group seeking independence. Clinton came into the picture in 1999 — when NATO attacked Yugoslav targets. Clinton and NATO intervened, they did not initiate this war by lying Bush-Cheney style.

With eyes darting uncontrollably, an angry and trembling Tancredo declared — “We will not survive as a nation!” “We are testing our willingness to hold on to something known as the English language, the one thing that holds us glued together,” adding — “this is why I will go after any Republican Senator who supports this bill,” — The comprehensive immigration bill currently being debated in the Senate.

”We are becoming a bilingual country — and that is not good!,” wailed an emotional Tancredo, following this statement with a torrent of distorted attacks at immigrants, ranging from welfare benefits to school congestions, to English, ….!

”Bilingual countries don’t survive!” …., “We need ‘that thing’ to hold us together!” ….yelled Tancredo. Tancredo even suggested that ALL immigration should be stopped …..because America faces “death!”

”It’s simply not fair to say those people get put ahead in the line of all the people who’ve been waiting legally to come to this country,” the Master flip-flopper, Mitt Romney said. Lets enforce the current laws enacted in 1986 — READ: Lets hunt down the immigrants, and suffocate them to submission.

The “communal braying” of the word “Amnesty” without any offer of a workable alternative was nauseating — all they could furnish was a tired chorus: “Enforce the existing laws!” “Enforce the border!” “Build the fence!” ….”They will all self-deport!” …as if 12 million immigrants will depart the United States at the wave of a Republican magical wand!

Shows how out of touch with reality these Republican candidates are.

Meanwhile, Gov. Romney is airing campaign ads in SPANISH, the language of the same group of people he is attacking, so relentlessly — What a hypocrite!

Gov. Tommy Thompson proposed putting George Bush on a “lecture circuit” after his retirement — Bush, a man who cannot pronounce anything right!

Asked how he would use George Bush if he becomes president, Rep. Tancredo recalled that White House aide Karl Rove had once told him to “never darken the door of the White House.” With eyes bulging fiercely, Tancredo said he’d tell Bush the same thing.

Congressman Ron Paul provided the usual theatrics. Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani looked like a toothless bull-dog, Duncan Hunter was his usual “anti-immigrant self,” Huckabee emphasized that God created man — but didn’t know how, yet he conveniently refuted Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. As for flip-flopper Romney — why would anyone believe anything said by someone whose “faith” didn’t believe blacks were human until as recently as the the late seventies.

All in all, this was a sorry group of vicious and pandering pretenders. A bunch of middle-aged white-men immersed in “Gunsmoke Freakdom,”…..as my friend Ike, quite correctly states: U.S. Political campaigns become an orgy of prevarication . . . One rich guy tells one set of lies, the other rich guy tells a slightly different set of lies, and you get to base your vote on which set of lies you like the best. “I’ll cut taxes!” . . . “I’ll give you better schools!” . . . “I’ll cut crime!” . . . “I’ll cut welfare!” . . . “I’ll build more jails!” . . . “I’ll create more jobs!” . . . “I’ll cut the deficit!” . . . “I’ll end the war!” . . . “I’ll start the war!” . . . “I’ll put a chicken in every pot!” . . . “I’ll keep those Immigrants in their place!”.

Pure PoliTRICKS!

The other Sunday, the Democrats looked more relaxed, more resourceful and much less angry — compared to this Republican group who offered nothing substantive in terms of policy, other than fear-mongering and the usual empty and predatory rhetoric.

VERDICT: Senator McCain won this debate. Simply put — he seems to be the wiser of this Fear-Mongering bunch — his patriotic speech at the end of the debate, I think, was his strongest moment. But his immigration stance will definitely hurt him with the Republican base, a base that has stopped reasoning totally, when it comes to immigration — “because America faces death,” if 12 to 20 million immigrants are assimilated into the system.

If that’s the case, then America should have died already, because these 20 million are already here, and some have been here for 20+ years.

So, what’s Tancredo’s REAL problem? Your guess is as good as mine.

Scare Mongering Juggernaut Sacked! Now What?

The Chickens have home to roost, so to speak. The corrupt Republican smear & scare mongering juggernaut has been sacked!

A strong Democratic onslaught has left the “Quarterback” limping badly, and his “Receivers” are scattered all over the political playing field.

Throw in Pastor Ted Haggard’s Methamphetamine laced gay sex scandal, and not even a “Saddam Finale” could rescue the Republicans.

Over the last three weeks the Republican strategy has been basically a chorus of fear mongering and the raining of shameless, desperate and Racist ads into our living rooms. Here goes:

- A win for the Dems is a win for terrorists!
- Nancy Pelosi is an “Extreme Liberal” from “Gay San Francisco!”
- Oh my God! Charlie Rangel (a black Congressman) will be running the Ways & Means Committee!
- The Dems will raise your taxes!
- 20 million “filthy” immigrants have invaded us and are tearing this country asunder!

Profane and blasphemous inflammations!

The American people are not that stupid after all, they are tired of being treated like fools, and have issued a strong rebuke to this arrogant and grossly incompetent Republican administration.

Never in my life have I ever witnessed a political machine so perfectly “precisioned,” yet so dangerously flawed, but as the wise have said before—”a thief has forty days!”

The story of the Republican party in the last six years has similarities to the proverbial boy who liked to cry “Wolf!” pretending that he was going to be eaten by a wolf. When people came running to help him, they found the boy laughing because he was not really in danger. This happened a number of times until people stopped believing him when he cried, “Wolf!” Finally, the boy was attacked by a real wolf and no one came to save him because they all thought he was just crying wolf.

The real wolf in this instance is the Democratic Party and the fed up people are Americans(excluding the right wing nuts).

The people have had enough of this charade and have clearly indicated that they want change.

It’s neither a total Democratic avalanche nor is it a revolution, but a clear sign that the majority are fed up with being hoodwinked, cajoled and demeaned.

Having said the above, now what?

The primary issue at hand is Iraq—It is very clear that this ill-conceived and badly executed war is being poorly managed and a looming confrontation between George Bush and Congress is simmering.

Sources indicate that this government, faced with a “Vietnam” like failure, is pondering partitioning Iraq into three autonomous regions. The Baker commission, a bi-partisan “Iraq study group” set up by Congress and led by former Secretary of State James Baker, to study the hopeless situation in Iraq, is set to recommend to the Bush government to split Iraq into three regions, namely Kurdish, Shi’ite, and Sunni.

Classic “Divide and Rule” Imperialism

The invasion of Iraq was an imperialist act cleverly camouflaged under the fear of terror. Dividing a country to “win” is a well known tactic, perfected by colonial Europeans notably “Master Imperialist” Great Britain, during and after the World Wars. A thieving tactic whose primary aim is to maintain exclusive control of natural resources and to impose economic and cultural imperialism even after withdrawal—Mr. Bush calls it “Spreading Democracy.”

If the Baker commission recommends the partitioning of Iraq, the issue for the Bush government will not be the equitable division of oil wealth to the three Iraqi sectarian groups, but rather how much of this oil wealth will Bush’s squad of “Hyena” oil cronies control and exploit.

Colluding with the Kurds will be relatively easy, but the Shi’ites and their Iranian brothers will be tough nut to crack, meanwhile the Sunni’s who had previously enjoyed Saddam Hussein’s patronage for years, will not take it lying down.

Expect the bloodshed to triple the current levels—Imperialism has met a brick wall.

Thousands of lives of brave American soldiers and innocent Iraqi civilians have been lost in vain, for it is impossible to win this war. Some form of retreat is the only way out. If 140,000 troops have not been able to “win” in three years, I don’t see them doing so in ten years.

For the record, Colin Powell, a decorated military general warned them prior to go to war: “you break it, you own it.”

In two years, if this administration does not clean up it’s act, I see George Bush withdrawing from Iraq….in utter shame, and in the process cementing his place in history as one of the worst presidents in the history of the United States—the president who wantonly destroyed one of the oldest civilizations in the world—Mesopotamia.

While Bill Clinton will succeed in repairing his legacy, besmirched by a sexual encounter, I do not see Bush doing likewise even if he attempts to, for his is tainted in blood, plus he neither has the propensity nor the capacity to rally anyone in the world to his side, and he seems determined to “stay the course,” to nowhere. A Democratic Congress salivating in the mouth like a starved “Nile crocodile,” will just make it worse for him if he doesn’t toe the line.

There are several other domestic issues to be tackled including Health Care, Social Security Reform and notably Immigration.

If the Republican party keeps on insisting that the millions immigrants who are already here be deported summarily, without any humane considerations as to whether they have built strong roots and affiliations in this country, they can kiss the Latino and all other future “immigrant votes” goodbye, permanently.

If the Democrats grab this opportunity and play their cards right over the next 2+ years, the Republican team may be punting into the stands for many years to come.
