View Full Version : If the Presidential Candidates were Campers...

what do you think they'd camp in? I've been thinking about this one a lot lately.

Obama - he's an Airstream guy. I can just picture him coming out the door early in the morning with a steaming cup of coffee, waving like he's getting off a campaign bus. He just wouldn't know how to dress for camping - probably wearing snazzy pants with a crease and Italian shoes and a sweater around his shoulders like some yuppy.

McCain - he would have an old pop up, like an old Coleman. This guy could dress the part - plaid shirt, blue jeans, but Lugz boots, not Crocs like Pete would wear. The kicker - in the next site would be the Prevost he and his wife really sleep in.

Nader - the perpetual Green Party candidate. He would be in an old tent, but it would have to be made of hemp. He would arrive in an old Chevy station wagon, or maybe a Corvair (not!). Ralph doesn't have to worry about what to wear - his normal, unkempt look fits in anywhere in the woods.

To be sure,,,none of them would camp in my Itasca or your Kiwi. Why??? Cause we're both smart enough not to invite any of them in!!:lmao:

Obama would have to have someone there to hook up and drive for him. I met the guy while I was working, shook his hand and all. The guy's hand was so limp and soft. I did not detect a muscle anywhere in it. I know the guy shakes hands all the time so he wouldnt be lookin to give a firm shake but come on at least let me know your a man!!! :rolleyes:
Just by shaking his hand I would say he has never worked a day in his life. I felt all icky after it too. :sick:

It's going to be a long 8 years. I give McCain a little pass, he was kept in a cage for 5 years or whatever. Frankly, I don't see why being a Senator gives you the right to run for President. It's not like you actually run anything as a Senator, you sit and vote.

Maybe after India and Vietnam take all our IT jobs, they'll outsource the President there.

And it's only my opinion, but I think people should certainly have more senate experience than just 143 days to run for pres.

Personally, I like someone that isn't mucked in Washington. Not that I necessarily would vote for Obama (still undecided), but haven't people for years been complaining about how "inside Washington" most politicians are now a days? I have to admit it's kind of nice to see someone from "outside" Washington get the chance.

Then again, most Presidents don't make decisions anyways, their advisors do. The question isn't how much experience Obama has, it's how much his advisors would have ;)

That's why I liked Richard Nixon! He surrounded himself with brilliant people,,,, well except those who planted the bugs - they weren't too smart. He did nothing more than any other president (questionable methods of spying on others) only he got caught.

Anyone ever been to the capitol? The acoustics are such that when standing in a particular spot under the dome, you can hear someone whispering on the other side of the room. That's how many politicians got their inside information before electronics!

I was mortified that Nixon did not receive the respect due a president for his funeral. I know his service and the location of his service were his wishes, but the news media really down-played it, and that's what I found disrespectful.

Obama is nothing but a commercial...a celebrity. He has absolutely no substance whatsoever. He stands for absolutely nothing. Oops, I forgot, he stands for hope and change. The man cannot even speak, umm, er, ah, umm, ummm, umm, er, ah, ummm, umm, unless it is written in front of him or on the teleprompter. The ONLY thing he stands for and is known for is being the MOST LIBERAL SENATOR IN THE COUNTRY, period. He is not qualified and scares the crap out of me that people will vote for this guy. And we think the war is expensive? I seriously think people are finally seeing him for what he is...shallow and hollow.

Oh, to get back on post. The only camper Obama may set foot in is a Prevost...and even then I doubt it as he thinks he is beyond even that.

Mccain camped out for 5 1/2 years already and I think he is done camping.

Nader is not worth commenting on and has probably never even set foot outdoors anyway.

doesn't matter who we elect pres. Until we clean out both houses of Congress, it will never get better or change.

We need to look closely at the running mates of both men. The running mates might just be running the country soon.

My main concern with McCain is if he'll even last the 4 years. Considering he just had ANOTHER biopsy just 2 days ago, it's a rather big concern. In the end, with McCain, I think it will depend on who he picks for VP. Cause there is a good chance that guy could become President. I also have fear of another war mongerer in the White House. No thanks.

My main concern with Obama is that I believe he is smart and sincerely wants to do good, but that his lack of experience causes him to slip up at times and say stupid stuff. I don't believe half the crap the news says about him, that is just fear mongering. I also don't like that other than the Iraq War Issue, he hasn't seemed to take a huge stand on anything. Presidents should have convictions, they should not pander (although they all do). I do believe Obama would bring change because he hasn't been in Washington long enough to become entrapped, but I don't think all of a sudden we're all going to be living in mansions either.

Then again, McCain hasn't really taken a stand on much either. Actually, McCain has basically fallen off the face of the earth. I used to think that was a good idea, just let them attack Obama, but now I'm starting to think that it's hurting him.

I've always been a McCain fan, but I think the McCain I was a fan of years ago is not the same McCain he is now. I think he's become too Washington, he's no longer a "maverick", he just kind of goes with whatever people tell him. I also don't believe he is nearly as smart as Obama.

The last two presidents were both Washington outsiders and look how well that turned out! :eek:

I like McCain as a senator, but not as a president. And if he has health problems, he could linger for a loooooooong time with our country in crisis before he buys the farm.

Obama doesn't have much experience, but he sure seems to be getting an education during this election process. Did anybody else see "Obama Mia" on Jay Leno the other night? Hysterical!!!!!

I'm personally very worried about the Supreme Court becoming more conservative. I really like balance, and it's starting to swing too far to the right, so that'll be a big factor in my vote.

As far as the candidates and camping? I want them to stay home!!!!! If they came to FW, they'd probably end up taking over the whole campground for security purposes, and then the candidates would probably move out of their "donated" Prevosts becaues they're too primitive, and go stay in a suite in the Grand Floridian and eat at Victoria & Alberts. They'd probably stop by the campground for a photo op.

But what I'd love to see is either of the potential First Ladies handle a week in a popup with four kids of widely varying ages, hot/cold/rainy weather, and have to cook every meal and dump gray water! Now *that* would be funny!!! And how their dh's handle it might help me decide how to vote in November. :confused3

If I were gonna sit around a campfire with either one of them..I guess I'd probably go with McCain. I do remember after 9-11..and not knowing why the hell our city was burning and our neighbors weren't returning home, that I watched him on Jay Leno. He had the knowledge and the abilitity to communicate to the American people what had happened..who had done it and why. I remember thinking at that time, he would proably make a good president, he had an understanding and grasp of the situation that most of us just didn't have back on that day. That being said...I have differences with both candidates regarding immigration and health care.
However...
Who ever can find that ******* Bin Laden and hang him from the top of the Empire State building would get my vote. :thumbsup2 I'll even buy them a camper! I don't care who they are, or what party they belong to. Just seems to me, that you don't hear much about that murderer anymore..it's as if the guy gets a free pass on blowing up an American City and murdering 3,000 people who did nothing but go to work that day. In all this time we haven't been able to find him. REALLY... :sad2:

Since when is skin cancer a death sentence? Cancer of the skin is the most common of all cancers in the United States. Both basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas have a 95 percent cure rate when detected and treated early. The president is always watched closely by his Physician. I would hardly call McCain a walking timebomb. I've seen perfectly healthy individuals who were alot younger drop dead of a heart attack or a brain aneurysm.

THE IRISH - SUCH CLEAR THINKERS


Leave it to the Irish to cut through the crap and make the whole issue crystal clear...

Thoughts from across the pond.

An email from Ireland to the brethren in the States...a point to ponder despite your political affiliation:

'We, in Ireland, can't figure out why people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States.

On one side, you have a pants wearing lawyer, married to a lawyer who can't keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer who goes to the wrong church who is married to yet another lawyer who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run.

Now...On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate "Mc" terminology married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship.

There is no way, no matter what party they are from, I would vote for someone who can't put his hand on his heart for our national anthem, can't wear a flag pin on his lapell, until there is an uproar about it, and who's own wife has admitted to not liking our country. My husband fought, and lost a lot for this country and if Obama wins I am soooo happy he is no longer active duty. I would not be able to show my respect to that man. He is in no way fit to be Commander and Chief.

And I'm sorry if I offend, but please, whether or not you agree with what your pastor spews off at the mouth about, you stayed a member of that church for 20 years. I know if I didn't agree with the teachings and beliefs of my church, I would find another one?......

I feel that people just forget these issues. The only thing we really hear about with McCain is that he is old. Well, I would much rather have an old guy who has somewhat of a clue in office, rather than a guy that can't even show proper respect for the country he wants to run. I too am scared that this guy might be voted in. He may be bringing "change" but I don't think it is the change we really want.

I do have to agree that I see a lot of people that do not put their hand over their heart during the national anthem, only during the Pledge of Allegiance. He is a Presidential candidate however, so he should do it ALL the time (this isn't something he always does).

2) The flag lapel thing was his statement against the Iraq war. He probably could have chosen a better way, but he isn't not wearing the flag because he is not patriotic.

3) Michelle Obama never once said she didn't like our country. She did say:


“For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” she told a Milwaukee crowd today, “because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”


I think it was extremely stupid of her to say, but this is also a woman who when she went to college had her white roomate's mom have her moved out of the dorm because she didn't "want her white daughter staying with a black girl". I don't know what Michelle Obama has gone through in her life, but perhaps she's just proud that a "black man" (I still hate that people don't refer to him as mulata or half white or whatever, he's not just black) is running for President. In all honesty, I believe that was her intention. Not for a second do I think Michelle Obama hates the US.

4) The McCain old thing is an issue because, well, he is old. He would be the oldest President ever, and like I mentioned above, people do have concerns with people's age. That being said, that alone shouldn't cause him not to be President. I could end up voting for McCain, but his age will definitely play a part.

In the end, it's sad that in this day and age we have forgotten the issues. I feel like the Presidency has become a tabloid race, no one talking about anything to do with policy, but about prayer notes taken out of walls, about fear mongering of someone being Muslim (which even if he was, who cares, I thought Freedom of Religion was one of the tenants of this country), about stuff that will never affect you and me.

What will affect us is economic policy, foreign policy, taxes, social programs, etc... Yet I never hear anyone talking about that kind of stuff (in general), it's always "Did you hear Obama was a Muslim?" or "Did you hear McCain slipped up on talking about Iran".

There is no way, no matter what party they are from, I would vote for someone who can't put his hand on his heart for our national anthem, can't wear a flag pin on his lapell, until there is an uproar about it, and who's own wife has admitted to not liking our country. My husband fought, and lost a lot for this country and if Obama wins I am soooo happy he is no longer active duty. I would not be able to show my respect to that man. He is in no way fit to be Commander and Chief.

And I'm sorry if I offend, but please, whether or not you agree with what your pastor spews off at the mouth about, you stayed a member of that church for 20 years. I know if I didn't agree with the teachings and beliefs of my church, I would find another one?......

I feel that people just forget these issues. The only thing we really hear about with McCain is that he is old. Well, I would much rather have an old guy who has somewhat of a clue in office, rather than a guy that can't even show proper respect for the country he wants to run. I too am scared that this guy might be voted in. He may be bringing "change" but I don't think it is the change we really want.

Phew, I've said my peace, I'm done.


I remember thinking the same about his church affiliation. I have in fact changed churches..and denominations because I wasn't comfortable with what was being taught in the church I was raised in. It wasn't easy.., but I couldn't be a part of something that I didn't believe was right. It was the best thing we ever did, and we have been members of our current church for 20 years. I do remember getting up and walking out of our old church knowing that I was a Christian and didn't want to give up my faith, but figured I needed to find a Church or denomination whose values and beliefs reflected my own. It can be done. I wasn't running for office either.
While I think he is probably a nice man...I don't think he has the experience that the country needs during this time of turmoil.
That's not to say I agree with everything McCain stands for either..because I don't. I greatly disagree with him on health care, and immigration. Only given that these are our only two choices..I'll go with the "old guy"...whose lived through times that the young one has only read about in text books.

I also heard him say that he will chase Bin Laden to the gates of Hell. I truly hope if there is only one promise that he's able to keep...that's the one.
And yes, I know he's not in Iraq. Never thought he was. I hope he bombs the livng hell out of Afganistan until he finds the murdering ******* and makes him pay. Forget about rebuilding the pile of rocks that it is...just get him.. Then hand him over to us in NY...we'll let the FDNY take him first..then NYPD, then Port Authority...after that we'll give him to the MOTHERS, FATHERS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS and children of all those souls who rained down as ash in our city that terrible day.

Unfortunately we can't just bomb entire countries full of innocent people into nothingness just to get one man. It's a shame though that Osama has never been caught.

Personally, I think he's already dead. I think he was taken out years ago, but the US wasn't able to prove it, so Al Qaeda keeps on putting out fake tapes from him. I believe we would have heard a lot more from him if he actually were alive, I remember all the tapes that would be released from him way before 9/11, and the guy was constantly rambling on. If he were still alive, it wouldn't be hard for him to continue to do the same, yet we rarely hear anything, and when we do, it's very non-specific or iffy at best.

lol John, I pretty much figured that the board would be conservative, that's not much of a stretch.

P.S. Don't count me in those 3, I might very well still vote for McCain. I have lots of issues with both candidates, and I consider myself much more independent than anything (I don't believe in welfare, I believe in the death penalty, I don't support illegal immigration, yet I also don't like some of the stuff I see come out of the Republican party (too much hate and fear at times)).

RvUsa
07-30-2008, 08:00 PM
I like to think of myself as an independent republican.... LOL I like to think for myself, not along a simple party line.

I have said it before, I don't like either, I think this country needs to give us better to choose from. But of the 2, I am voting McCain, the lesser of 2 evils in MHO.

Just my 2 cents.

Hmmm..... interesting statement. "Innocent people into nothingness". I recall vividly 3000 innocent people being blown up into nothingness on Sept. 11th.

I for one, don't give a rats behind if the entire country is blown to bits trying to find Osama...or his body if he's dead.(which I don't think he is) Not one bit. I'll sleep at night just fine...better than I have since the murdering ******* blew up the city.

Just my opinion...guess you can tell I've got some pretty strong feelings when it comes to this. Comes from smelling the smoke of your city burning..and seeing grown men cry trying to find their boys in a pile of rubble. It doesn't matter if your boy is a man...he's always your boy. Then reading obituaries for over a year in our local papers. Now we deal with the illness and death that ground zero workers are experiencing. Guess I'll have to excuse myself from this part of the discussion. I just want someone to get the guy...I don't care who. I want someone to say "YOU DON'T DO THIS TO AMERICA"...

THE IRISH - SUCH CLEAR THINKERS


Leave it to the Irish to cut through the crap and make the whole issue crystal clear...

Thoughts from across the pond.

An email from Ireland to the brethren in the States...a point to ponder despite your political affiliation:

'We, in Ireland, can't figure out why people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States.

On one side, you have a pants wearing lawyer, married to a lawyer who can't keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer who goes to the wrong church who is married to yet another lawyer who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run.

Now...On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate "Mc" terminology married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship.

What in Lord's name are ye lads thinking over there in the colonies

'nuf said.

But....but.... do you "approve" this message?

I say, we need to clean our own homes in order to clean up the Office of the President.

By that I mean, each voter should educate themselves on their local representatives,,, be it a senator, congressman, county commissioner, mayor,,,, what ever the office.

Often time the incumbants get elected over and over and over again because people think "Well my life has been okay with Joe Plotnick in the office. I'll vote for him again!" Just look at Robert Byrd (serving since 1959) Ted Kennedy (serving since 1962), Strom Thurman (serving since 1954)...just to name a few! This is freaking rediculous for people to hold the same office for 40-50+ years!!

People do not see that most long-term imcumbants are the cause of the problems. Politicians all scratch each others backs and most politicians are involved with huge corporations on some level!!! Ever hear the term "pork barrel"?

If this country wants to effect a change in the US Government, the place to begin is in your own jurisdictions. Term limits on all elected offices might be a good place to start.

Until we get the "good ol' boys" out of the congress and senate, there will be no change no matter who gets elected for president.

whoever said politicians aren't smart. Remember John Kerry, he married a woman who owns Heinz and is worth around 500 million bucks. McCain married a beer dist. who is probably worth more than 500 million, and just think all the free beer he can drink. These guys may not be brilliant but they sure know how to marry.

Honest to God, guys, I just wanted to know what kind of camper you thought they'd have.

I am amazed at how this took off last night. I just don't have time today to read all the responses. I did see mention of McCain's cancer, and I am pretty positive he had melanoma, which has a much poorer prognosis than either squamous cell or basal cell, although it is no longer the death sentence it was some 25 years ago thanks to earlier detection and treatment.

On a different note, after I was laying in bed last night, not sleeping again, I was thinking about the Morgan Spurlock show, 30 days.

It made me think, anyone who wants to have a public office, president of the us, senate, house, governor etc, should have to live for 30 days like the people they are governing.

Lets face it, what do any of them know about being a normal american? They are all rich fat cats who come from money, or have money, and have no grasp of what it is really like.

Do like Morgan did, put them in some city somewhere with $100 in their pockets, let them live on a minimum wage job at mcdonalds etc, make them pay for their own gas to get to work, on their minimum wage job. Lets see minimum wage is what $6 ish, x 40 = $240, fill up a normal car what $60, that leaves you what $150 week after taxes to live.....

I think they would all have just a little more respect for the people who pay their big fat pork barrel paychecks!

Boy, that's telling it like it is, John. I find it interesting that the laws they pass seldom effect them at all, too. Even when healthcare reform was being actively discussed during the Clinton administration, congress was exempting its members from any legislation that would be passed that affected their health coverage.

I would LOVE to see that. I want anyone who thinks we should welcome illegal aliens to come to my town and LIVE there. See what effect this has had on our local economy and the tremendous burden it has been for our school district. Our school taxes are based on single family occupancy homes...only there are those homes being rented out to illegal immigrants with many families occupying one home. The town can't afford to pay more inspectors to handle the increase in violations. Even when they are reported..they simply move to another home, and the process starts again. It's a vicious cycle. The school has to pay to educate those children occupying these single family homes. Only the tax rate for the school is based on a single family occupying that home..yet 4 or 5 families may be occupying it. This is a tremendous burden for the local districts. I mean..they have a "one tissue" policy in our district. Can you imagine..if your kid sneezes and needs to go to the nurse..it's one tissue..then use your sleeve I guess. :sad1: We pay $8,000 a year in taxes..and it's only going up. It makes those of us who do own single family residences and moved here so our kids would have a better chance at a good education wonder what the heck is our government doing. Now, I don't mean to sound heartless...and I feel for those who came here...but why is it that MY community is the one to suffer because of it. Seems like the rich folks in Washington, or Albany can afford to be sentimental and welcome everyone with open arms. They have illegal immigrants mow their lawns and serve them in their restaurants, or clean their homes. Then they go home...to my town. They don't have them living next door, with five families. I think they might have a different tune to sing if that were the case.
I'm not sure what the answer is..and again, I don't mean to sound heartless..but the only way around this is to move..and we will probably do just that when my youngest finishes high school. Only that doesn't really solve anything, it just leaves the same mess for someone else. That is a shame because my husband was raised here, and his mother, and grandmother before him.
