Bill Clinton Speaks & Joe Biden Is Next
This is going to be fun. The crowd goes nuts. More nuts for him than they ever did for Hillary. Michelle looks happier tonight. “I’m here first to support Barack Obama and second to warm up the crowd for Joe Biden . . . . I love Joe Biden.” “In the end, my candidate didn’t win, but I’m really proud of the campaign she ran.” | Read More »
A Great Video Metaphor for McCain v. Obama
Snazzy guy with lots of cool moves and flips versus the traditional trench fighter.
Friends of Barry (Part 2): ACORN and Other Far Left Groups
I’ve written before about Barack Obama’s ties to the far, far left. In 1996, he sought the New Party endorsement. The New Party has, by 1996, become the party of Communists and other radicals. It was, for all intents and purposes, an amalgamation of CCC, CPUSA, Green, and Social-Democrat parties. As I noted then By 1996, the New Party had solidified its ties with ACORN, | Read More »
Friends of Barry (Part 1): The Tangled Web Between Bill Ayers and Barack Obama
Well, it looks like the Chicago Annenberg Challenge records are going to be opened up after all. No doubt the University of Illinois and Barack Obama’s campaign have sufficiently scrubbed the records to remove the most glaring of details about Barry’s friendship with Bill Ayers. But we know there has to be some panic there. As we have theorized all along, Barry cannot take a | Read More »
Pay no attention to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. It’s totally not fair game. He’s only making money off his dad’s connections, that’s all.
Here is a story most of the MSM is going to run away from as fast as possible. The son of Barack Obama’s vice presidential pick, Sen. Joe Biden, is a top partner at a Washington law firm that has lobbied his father’s office, a family tie that could prove embarrassing for a campaign that has positioned itself as fighting lobbyists and special interests in | Read More »
Putting the Biden Pick in Perspective
When Joe Biden entered the United States Senate, John McCain was in his fifth year of captivity at the Hanoi Hilton. Barry Obama was eight when Biden began his Senate career. Nixon was starting his second term as President. Barack Obama’s campaign says Joe Biden is “not of Washington.” Linda Douglass, formerly of ABC News and now an Obama hack (not that it’d be different | Read More »
Let’s Welcome Joe Biden to the Ticket
He himself said Barack Obama was “not ready to lead.” He’s right. So we should stop them by sending some money to John McCain. While we’re at it, there is an opportunity ripe here for RedState readers. I will truly be ashamed if we do not have creative enough talent to put together a 30 second ad spot on this announcement. Your base material is | Read More »
Just How Little Change There Is In Obama’s Hope
The non-traditional politician chooses a gaffe machine who has been in the United States Senate since The One was eight years old. The only change there is that Obama has finally chosen to ditch the idea that he is a new type of politician. Obama is part of the failed legacy of liberalism of the past 100 years. There is nothing new here except the | Read More »
Obama-Biden ’08: A Clean-Articulate Campaign
The One has chosen. Have U ben txtd yet? I will say again: the reason this has been handled the way it has been handled is because Obama wants to emphasize that he needs no one. There will be no pre-convention campaigning. There will be no major pre-convention promotions. This is all about Obama. Joe’s just there for constitutionally required window dressing P.S. — It’s | Read More »
BREAKING NEWS: Joe Biden Gets Secret Service Protection

Joe Biden It Is
A friend who would know tells me Joe Biden is off to the airport and is Illinois bound. I trust the friend, but I’m not sure about his information. Consider this informed speculation and nothing more. I’m perfectly willing to be wrong, but the signs point to yes and, again, the source tends to be right about these things. Honestly, I did not see this | Read More »
BREAKING: NBC News Says It Will Not Be Bayh or Kaine
From the NBC News transcript: MITCHELL: all pointing to biden. at home and under wraps today surrounded by family who have been gathering all week, even on the eve of the announcement not yet given the official word, sources say, unlike the other top contenders, virginia governor tim kaine and indiana senator evan bayh. SEN. EVAN BAYH: it’s not mine to report. MITCHELL: sources say | Read More »
Folks, it is looking more and more likely that it will be Obama-Bayh ’08 (AE suggests that looks a lot like pig latin). But this is not the sticker, despite the Drudge headline and mysterious news report: How do I know? First, Obama likes pastels and non-traditional campaign paraphernalia. Second, it looks much like like this one:
I told you guys Georgia was not in play.
The Obama team realizes it too. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has put the brakes on ads that were running in seven states carried by the GOP in the 2004 presidential election, FOX News has learned. Of the seven states — including Alaska, Georgia, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota — Florida and Virginia are considered key battlegrounds this year. Obama’s decision to stop advertising in those | Read More »
Is It Just Me . . .?
Or does it sound like Obama really does not want a VP? Just, for example, is Adam Nagourney from the NewsHour on PBS: What they’re going to do is they’re going to send out, so they say, a text message or e-mail to millions of supporters and reporters who have signed up to get it. That will be the first time it There’s one thing | Read More »
RedState on Hannity & Colmes TONIGHT
I’ll be on Hannity & Colmes tonight to talk about RedState’s coverage of Obama’s opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act and our coverage related thereto, including today’s post on Obama’s statements from the floor of the Illinois State Senate. I should be on between 9:00 and 9:30.
In 2002, Barack Obama Supported Infanticide and I’ve Got the Transcript of His Words
Promoted up top in light of tonight’s debate. Editorial Note: People forget this issue came up more than once in Illinois. In 2001, Obama was concerned about abortion rights and the impact the Born Alive Infant Protection Act would have on abortion rights. In 2002, those concerns were addressed and fixed in the legislation. Now Obama’s concerns were more clear. His views on life had | Read More »
You too can buy the Obama Family T-Shirt
In honor of Senator Obama’s devotion to his extended family and the DNC’s efforts to remove the homeless from unsightliness if not from sight altogether, we’ve created this little item in commemoration: Get the t-shirt here
