Palin vs. Hillary Couture
The difference is just in the way it is covered.http://cdmpolitics.blogspot.com/2008/10/150000-in-clothes-crickets-and.htmlThoughts from C17wife, and other Red State women?
William Ayers tried to firebomb a nine year old boy,
This is all we need to say about Obama and Ayers.Instead, we seem to be dissembling about people around a kitchen table, and when Obama knew.Obama’s defense is that the actions of Ayers were dispicable, but that Ayers was mainstream. Talk about a leap of moral logic! We have to point out that Ayers actions were dispicable, and that Ayers was dispicable, and that Obama’s | Read More »
My gut instinct is that the people are “leaving the door open” for McCain. I base that on the reports from Ohio in regards to early voting, and the stickyness of Obama’s topline numbers.I do not think McCain did as well as he could have, but I also do not believe that Obama delivered a knockout blow. CNN’s focus group from Ohio seemed to confirm | Read More »
McCain needs to get back to Campaign 101:
McCain needs t get back to fundamentals in teh campaign.Identify Problem:The Economy Sucks, largely due to an out of control Fannie and Freddie that issued mortgages to people who could nort afford to pay them back.

Obama is going to hit back with Carly | Read More »
What McCain Said: Obama is in bed with the guys that caused this
Chris Cox is a favorite of conservatives. However, his position does serve at the confidence of the President, and the public; confidence has been waning, and justifiably so.Now that McCain has made his point that someone in the administration needs to be accountable, wwe need to focus the message back to Obama. In speeches later today, he needs to drop the Cox reference, and make | Read More »
The Economic meltdown, and how we fight back
… at ground zero of the subprime meltdown, I would detail a couple of things:1) This whole meltdown is based on the failure of Mortgage Backed Securities.2) Senator McCain signaled a warning in 2005 that Fannie and Freddie were skating on thin ice. In particular, the GSE’s were not able to report clean books, and had to restate earnings (not good when organizations can not | Read More »
Criticism of Palin’s experience
experience. I guess I will have to agree to disagree with them. Also note that they do not say Obama is qualified.However, one thing I have noticed about Palin the past few days:SHE’S THE ONLY ONE ON FREAKIN’ MESSAGE!!!!!
