Have the presidential candidates turned into a bunch of whiners and sissies?

Let’s take a closer look…

Cafferty: Bum rap for Clinton 3:20 Jack asks: Have the news media been unfair to Hillary Clinton?

Today on Jack Cafferty’s Show on CNN he had a film clip asking if the press has been prejudiced against Hillary Clinton. He read pro and con emails from across the Heartland. Cafferty even cited an excerpt from Maureen Dowd a columnist The New York Times (if there is one woman I love outside of Ugly Betty and Bette Midler and Cathy Friedman and Margaret Wendt, it is Maureen Dowd—I read her before I do the comics or the Financial Pages—if you believe that I like comics or financials you need to call Laura Schlesinger) who in response to Hillary Clinton’s bellyaching about how beat up she has been in the media and that Obama always gets a pass, Dowd said that ‘it was because there is an utter open-minded press that Hillary Clinton lost 11 primaries and or caucuses in a row to Obama that she is still referred to as a contender’. Get ‘er, Maureen. Read Dowd in the Times. She is so brilliant and bright that the lights on Broadway dim when her column hits the streets.

I have said it once and a million times over, I am aghast and amazed and it is unbelievable the amount of money that these candidates are spending to become president of the United States. It is estimated that when the whole dog and pony show is over collectively the candidates will have spent over a billion dollars. Every one of them ought to be ashamed of them selves and take time out for some major psychotherapy because their priorities are way out of line with what we need to be spending money on. How about poverty? Seen any down and out on Main Street lately? And can we forget the deficit we will be wrangling with for umpteen years? Does anybody care about the men and women coming back from war with a lot of psychic damage, physical ruin and no future? ‘Mister, can you spare a dime for me and my hard time in Afghanistan,’ says the lame soldier with no job to come home to and nobody who seems to give a damn. Did you see the latest figures on how many people have lost their homes? (I must admit that malfeasance in the mortgage debacle was shame on the lender and those who were looking for ‘too good to be true’). Could the recession be about taking a cold hard look at what is worth your hard earned dollar and what is simply feeding an addiction? Recession could get you to look at your priorities with a clearer eye.

But the question is about whiners and sissies. And I must say that if my child (and I don’t have one or more thank God—they would have left town a long time ago because I still think ‘work for what you get’ is the Golden Rule where I live and grew up) acted like these silly nincompoops I would take him or her out behind the wood shed and teach them the rules of civility. The bottom line is that politics is about people like the Clintons and the Bushes who are power mad and who have so little concern for the welfare of you and me that it’s scary. Power is what they want and when they get it they run out of excuses when things start to go south and start playing the blame game. Whine, whine, whine you big puss and sissies.

But the Tammy Whinette Award of the day goes to someone I like, but she still qualifies for the big whiner of the week. Whoopi Goldberg, who now is in the seat vacated by Meredith Vieira vacated by Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s The View, was overlooked in producer Gil Cates’ montage of past hosts on the 80th Oscar Show. On The View on Monday the co-hosts were up in arms and Whoopi choked up at the omission. 

I reference Whoopi and all of you to the second paragraph above about all the things in the world that could make me cry but Whoopi Goldberg being left out of the montage of past hosts of the Oscar Show is not one of them. Some movies make me cry—a lot of classical music, especially when diva Ashley Tripp Bell is singing—rainbows, weddings, and bassinets in nurseries, poverty in Slag Town, USA or Darfur, anywhere people are oppressed and slaughtered in the name of Jesus or Allah, the death of a friend like my muse Leonora or soul mate Beirne—but never when a society dame chips a finger nail or her maid quits or a dope loses a mint in the Market—or when Whoopi is left out or a presidential candidate boo hoo’s that she is being mistreated. Go back to Meanness School and get tougher. You signed on for Power and Power takes the soul from your body.

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
