Almost every speaker at the DNC said three things. Each said:
First that they respect John McCain.
Second that they disagree with McCain’s vision of America.
Third that McCain’s policies will be just like George W. Bush’s.
I am waiting for any of the speakers at the RNC to have a noble, a charitable, or an honest word about Obama, Biden, Gore, or any of the Democrats. A “Christian” word, if you will.
I will not hold my breath waiting for a Republican to say ‘Obama is a patriotic American with whom I disagree. His policies will be the policies of Bill Clinton, John Kennedy, or Franklin Delano Roosevelt.’
Thus far Lieberman lied about Obama when he said Obama “has not reached across party lines to get anything significant done.” He has reached across the aisle, and he has gotten things done – help for veterans.
Guiliani belittled Obama’s service as a community organizer, law school professor, Illinois legislator and United States Senator. As I see it, Guiliani has tarnished his own reputation.
But he and Lieberman are illustrative of McCain and the Republicans. They believe that they hold a monopoly on patriotism. They may be monopolists in terms of energy – that’s why they favor nuclear, coal, and oil – and they may believe that they are patriotic, but just as an abuser “loves” his spouse, their policies are disastrous.
And just as the spouse of an abuser must leave and protect the children, we must seek shelter from the Republican party.

McCain’s economic brain, Phil Graham is right – we are a nation of whiners.
