There is a group of Republicans and former Republicans that are forming an organization to support Barack Obama’s bid for the White House. They have been holding telephone conference calls. Former Senator Lincoln Chafee has left the Republican party and is endorsing Senator Barack Obama. Another surprising name on this list is Douglas Kmiec. Professor Kmiec was co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign’s Committee for Courts and the Constitution.
In an e-mail, Kmiec said he has been in contact with the Obama campaign, adding: “I think you’ll see a fairly well-designed website to begin; after that, I’m not sure if there will be print ads and such and how tightly the surrogate speaking will be coordinated.”
Sources say the Obama campaign effort will probably not occur until after the selection of a vice presidential candidate and the Democratic convention.
Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of President Eisenhower and a self-described “lifelong Republican,” was also on the call with the Obama campaign, which she said took place in recent days.
Eisenhower states that today’s Republican Party is not at all like the Republican Party of her grandfather, Dwight Eisenhower. A former adviser to President Reagan is also considering endorsing Barack Obama.
Texas businessman and former Marine Jack Holt said this year would be the first time he has ever voted for a Democrat to be president. Holt endorsed Obama in 2007 after supporting McCain and Bush years ago. He cited the Iraq war and fiscal responsibility as the main reasons why some Republicans are crossing over.

The “Destroyer” who calls himself the “Decider”, boy Bush, has even managed to tear apart the Republican Party. He did so with the help of his pals, traitor Rove and barnacle Cheney.
The Republicans can have self-centered Joe Lieberman. We Democrats don’t want him. All Lieberman wants is war and more war so he is the perfect partner for “endless war” John McCain.
All the intelligent Republicans are getting on board with Barack Obama. They are able to recognize the real leadership that Obama will bring to the Presidency.
And what’s McCain’s strategic adviser traitor Karl Rove going to do? He already has shown the Democrats all the tricks that he has in his book. And unless he can prove me wrong, Karl Rove is responsible for committing treason by exposing a covert CIA operative, Valerie Plame which jeopardized the security of the United States. During the American Revolution, Karl Rove would have been hung by the neck from the nearest and strongest tree branch.
Obama in Iraq
Obama in Afghanistan
Then you need to read that which is published by the European media. The US “liberal” media won’t give you the truth unless of course you are interested in American Idol and Britney Spears. Wait a minute, aren’t they the same? Oh well, I don’t give a rat’s behind about either so I wouldn’t know about that. What I do know is that the most recent report from “CentCom”, is that Der Spiegel mis-interpreted Maliki’s remarks regarding a timetable for withdrawal and Barack Obama’s strategy for ending the war in Iraq.
Der Spiegel is standing behind it’s interpretation.
SPIEGEL: Immunity for the US troops is apparently the central issue.
Maliki: It is a fundamental problem for us that it should not be possible, in my country, to prosecute offences or crimes committed by US soldiers against our population. But other issues are no less important: How much longer will these soldiers remain in our country? How much authority do they have? Who controls how many, soldiers enter and leave the country and where they do so?
SPIEGEL: Would you hazard a prediction as to when most of the US troops will finally leave Iraq?
Maliki: As soon as possible, as far as we’re concerned. U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, we think, would be the right timeframe for a withdrawal, with the possibility of slight changes.
SPIEGEL: Is this an endorsement for the US presidential election in November? Does Obama, who has no military background, ultimately have a better understanding of Iraq than war hero John McCain?
Maliki: Those who operate on the premise of short time periods in Iraq today are being more realistic. Artificially prolonging the tenure of US troops in Iraq would cause problems. Of course, this is by no means an election endorsement. Who they choose as their president is the Americans’ business. But it’s the business of Iraqis to say what they want. And that’s where the people and the government are in general agreement: The tenure of the coalition troops in Iraq should be limited.
The Republicans must be concerned. Barack Obama just hit a grand slam home run with his Iraq strategy while John McCain remains fumbling around with the worn out, absence of strategy that is paramount to George W Bush’s Iraq policies.
Score: Obama 4, McCain 0.

Thank you to StopTheRoadBlocks for letting us know about this great achievement which will bring jobs to Pennsylvania.
The attached article was in today’s Reading Eagle. This event was a very special occasion, and showcased the unbelievable amount of work that Dave Kessler put in to getting this biodiesel bill passed. By giving Pennsylvania biodiesel plants an incentive to produce fuel from soy grown right here in Pennsylvania, this is a win for
• Pennsylvania farmers
• Biodiesel efforts in Pennsylvania
• Farmland preservationists
• Pennsylvania taxpayers (due to increased revenue in PA, plus less development)
• Decreased dependence on oil
• Healthcare of PA citizens
Please join me in congratulating Dave on a job well done, in only his first term in office.
In case you missed this, the Reading Eagle has an article regarding the recent passage of Biodiesel. Here’s the link…
