This is worth repeating over and over again
The Kremlin tore in to John McCain via his chief foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, on Saturday. The Russians, angry at McCain’s strong statement denouncing Russia’s invasion of Georgia, pointed out that Scheunemann had lobbied for American ally Georgia. At the same time the Kremlin was attacking John McCain for Scheunemann’s ties to Georgia . . . you guessed it . . . Barack Obama’s | Read More »
As we predicted, Obama can’t take the heat, becomes defensive, and lashes out at a reporter for daring to ask tough questions.
A Las Vegas political reporter, Jon Ralston, interviewed Barack Obama and called him on all his policy reversals. Among the questions Ralston asks was this: I guess what the American people want to know though Senator, is what is the real difference between you and John McCain. You are running this ad tying him to the industry saying that he has taken all of these | Read More »
I’d say this is the pot calling the kettle black, but Obama’s supporters would call me racist.
John McCain is out promoting nuclear energy and Obama’s response is to accuse McCain of being divisive. Oh wait, maybe it’s not just the nuclear issue. Maybe it’s because McCain is daring to fight back. “When John McCain’s campaign goes out there and starts saying things like I’d rather lose the war to win an election or when he says that somehow I didn’t want | Read More »
Democrats Nervous that John McCain Might Give Them a Fight
The Democrats are like Israelites. The Israelites wandered through the desert seeing great miracles of God. Nonetheless, when the Israelites made it to the promised land, they were fearful of the Canaanites and wanted to flee. God punished them. The Democrats have wandered in the Presidential political wilderness for a long time. Yet Obama has shown them great wonders. He beat the Clintons. He brought | Read More »
If you are willing to make a donation, the campaign can get this into greater circulation. But they need your help.
Must Reads for the Morning
Marc Ambinder on Obama’s comments [that people should inflate their tires.] (http://marcambinder.theatlantic.com/archives/2008/07/inflatingthetires_conserving.php) Obama’s broadside today against McCain and his associations with the industry ought to put in the context of the 2005 energy bill, which contained oodles of tax breaks for the industry. McCain opposed it for that reason. Obama supported it (a flawed bill, he admitted), for other reasons. John Fund on the Democrats | Read More »
Barack Obama plays the race card. The media denies Barack Obama is playing the race card.
John McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, called out Obama today saying, “Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.” The media, though, is denying that Obama played the race card. They do not want to believe that their golden boy has stooped so low, so soon. By the way, do | Read More »
The Obama Energy Plan: Inflating your tires and getting regular tune-ups can save you as much gas as we’ll get from drilling.
There you go ladies and gentlemen. Barack Obama has let loose with where he actually stands — that is directly against you, the American people. You can listen to Rush talking about it here. He rightly draws the connection to Jimmy Carter’s policies. Next, I suppose, Obama will advocate the maximum speed limit be 55 mph again. First, let’s point out that he’s full of | Read More »
New additions to the RedState Store
We’ve added to the RedState store. You can pick up a host of items including these two new designs:
John Edwards has a child with his mistress*
On February 21, 2008, the New York Times ran a 3,000 word article with no sources on the record and a lot of innuendo about John McCain having an affair with a lobbyist. The first paragraph was one sentence. Here is the second paragraph: A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, visiting his offices and accompanying him on a client’s corporate | Read More »
I don’t know that we should blame Robert Novak too much for his story this week about the Veep being named. It could happen, but I doubt it. Here is what actually happened, according to some pretty good inside information. The McCain camp has begun vetting their top picks. To initiate the vetting process, Rick Davis called the potential picks to ask if they would | Read More »
Mike Allen pushes a left wing smear against McCain and treats it as his own
Mike Allen at the Politico has an article that says all of McCain’s gaffes are raising questions about his age. The McCain campaign says Obama has had plenty of flubs of his own, including a reference to “57 states” and a string of misstated place names during the primaries that Republicans gleefully sent around as YouTubes. But the mistakes raise a serious, if uncomfortable question: | Read More »
