Economic crisis proves who is truly fit to lead.
My personal thoughts this morning revolve around Senator Obama’s failed ability to lead given the situation he is in. For all the talk about bringing people together and striking a bipartisan tone, Barack Obama failed miserably yesterday. The Paulson package failed miserably not because of any “stunt” pulled by John McCain or the House Republican conference, but because Democrats failed to listen.
So what economic philosophy is it, Senator Obama?
In the wake of Lehman’s bankruptcy and the sell off at Wallstreet today Senator Barack Obama tried to link the situation to John McCain. Obama said that he did not directly fault Senator McCain for the economic problems facing the nation, but he did blame McCain’s economic philosophy. Such a statement not only begs the question what the junior senator from Illinois meant, but it | Read More »
Washington Post vote database: Barack Obama voted with party 96%.
I firmly agree with Jim Geraghty that Republicans must hammer Senator Barack Obama’s voting record while in Congress and note that he is anything but a uniter. In fact, according to the Washington Post vote database, Senator Obama voted with his party 96% of the time he was present. Compare that to John McCain’s record of voting with his party 88% of the time. The | Read More »
Blog may confirm political trap at Saddleback this weekend.
Since seeing the commercials on Fox News announcing a political forum at Saddleback church this Saturday, I always suspected some thing was up. Then I ran across this blog which digs a little deeper and discusses who will be “helping” Rick Warren with questions to Obama and McCain.
Paris Hilton echos John McCain’s energy policy.
Anyone else kind of find it humorous that Paris Hilton’s response to John McCain’s recent “celeb” advertisement was nearly word for word what John McCain is proposing? Well, minus the “meet you at the debate b****es quote.” See, what the media and the Obama campaign seem to not be acknowledging for obvious reasons is that John McCain’s campaign is not drill only. It includes drilling, | Read More »
Kudlow interview makes convincing case for Sarah Palin as Vice Presidential candidate.
I must admit that my head is in a tail spin regarding who McCain should select as vice presidential candidate. Really. I think Romney would be an inherently bad choice given what both what he said about Mike Huckabee during the campaign (and that counts here in fly over country) and McCain. In fact I am fairly confident that most people I talk to in | Read More »
McCain campaign releases “Praise the One” commercial
Its about time the gloves came off. Believe the video is over the top? Watch the video again and listen to Obama in his own words, then consider what people said here locally during his visit. One woman actually called him a messiah (didnt see THE in front of her description as reported by the News-Leader). There are many truths regarding how the Obama campaign | Read More »
Springfield, Missouri News Media fails at Barack Obama visit.
Wow. Talk about in the tank. After reviewing various area news media interviews and news reports about Senator Barack Obama’s visit to Springfield, Missouri yesterday I am beyond stunned. The contrast between how the local media covered the two candidates for President of the United States could not be more stark. The best interview of the day goes to the News-Leader’s Chad Livengood, at least | Read More »
