I am John Adams and you have entered my Blog. I decided to start blogging from the grave due to the preponderance of mistruths and inaccuracies that have spread across the people by virtue of biographical books and television series. It appears that a host of lecherous pundits and writers have jumped on the John Adams bandwagon. Even in the grave, these hangers-on are annoying and aggravating. So, good people, I have decided to enter the Blogesphere, as i believe it is called, not to correct the inaccuracies of what has been written about me, but to comment on what is happening now. My goal is to answer the question: "what would John Adams say about that?" I trust a colonial perspective, steeped in common sense and patriotism, will prove interesting and helpful to those living now. Your comments and responses are welcome, however, please remeber that i am dead and will not be able to respond to all items immediately or ever or while you are on the other side.
What would I say about who’s getting elected?
The next President of the United States will be John McCain. Why? Because Senator Clinton is a woman with baggage (about 220 lbs of Bubba) and Senator Obama is an African American with no experience running anything. If you think otherwise you are thinking wishfully. This election will be an extension of History and will not make History.
Let’s face it, America hasn’t changed that much since the 1790’s when I was President. In the 1790’s White men had all the power. In the 1790’s Religion was a big deal. In the 1790’s we worried about our security as a Country. In the 1790’s, the rich largely determined who ruled. In the 1790’s we were struggling to establish our own economy. In the 1790’s we worried about our security as a Country. In the 1790’s, the rich largely determined who ruled. In the 1790’s we were obsessed with free enterprise and lower taxes.
When I was elected in 1796 I beat Thomas Jefferson. I won because Jefferson was a too liberal, a Franco-phile and a bit of a nancy-boy. He was far better with the pen than with the tongue. He did get elected as my Vice-president and eventually became President when he toned down the liberal pablum. He never did get over his fondness of the French, an afflication that stuck with him throughtout his life.
So, if I were to run today against Hillary or Barach, I would win in a romp. I believe McCain will win in a close race because he is male, caucasian, christian, and a military guy that doesn’t like taxes. I am not saying he SHOULD win, I am saying he WILL win. If you are not a McCain supporter, take some comfort in knowing that he is likely to be a 1 term president. Either the war in iraq or his age will rule him out of 2 terms. A President that presied over a war ages 3 years to one so McCain will effectively be 84 at the end of his term. He could be the first President to wear Kevlar diapers.blog comments powered by Disqus
