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.
Oh Joe….Just Keep Talking. Please!
Sen. Joe Biden; otherwise known as the gift that keeps on giving, has done it again. Thanks Joe! You know those microphone’s that the NFL use to “Mic Up” quarterbacks and other players…we should always have one of those on Biden. Man, that guy would win the election for us. Anyway, I digress. According to ABC News (and I kid you not), Biden said recently | Read More »
In Defense of Redstate…..
In today’s New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an op-ed about how Republicans are trying to “otherize” Barack Obama by playing up rumors of him being a secret Muslim or even the anti-Christ. In his column today, Kristof listed Redstate (along with Jerome Corsi) as one of the Republican institutions that was attempting to “otherize” Obama with the secret Muslim/anti-Christ rumors. Kristof even placed | Read More »
Poll Junkies: Please Check Out This Diary-Review of 2004
How Much Should We Trust Polls? Sept. 20, 2008 Summary: On November 1, 2004, the day before the election, polls showed Kerry winning comfortably. The polls in 2004 all over-sampled Democratic voters in every single battleground state. There seem to be a significant percentage of people who vote Republican but either don’t like talking to pollsters or don’t have time to talk to pollsters. Obama | Read More »
AP: We’re above the law.
If media elites wonder many of us “common folk” take much of what we read, watch or hear with skepticism one might look no further than the actions taken by the Associated Press after the hacking of Sarah Palin’s personal email account.
My Country Cling to Me
The Obama campaign has launched an aggressive campaign for religious voters with a slogan “Believers for Barack” that for decency’s sake I hope is just an unintentional double entendre for the candidate often punned as a political messiah. Regardless of intent, I think the anointed one should think twice before making a push to remind voters of their religious values and morality and not to | Read More »
The UNEDITED Sarah Palin Interview
EXCERPTS: Charlie Gibson Interviews Sarah Palin (September 11, 2008) http://marklevinshow.com/gibson-interview/ GIBSON: Governor, let me start by asking you a question that I asked John McCain about you, and it is really the central question. Can you look the country in the eye and say “I have the experience and I have the ability to be not just vice president, but perhaps president of the United | Read More »
NJ GOVERNOR CORZINE MISSING IN ACTION
By Matt Rooney | September 12, 2008blog.savejersey.com It looks like Tom Kean has called Jon Corzine’s bluff. Yesterday, The Gloucester County Times strongly urged Governor Corzine to debate a state Republican leader on the issue of toll hikes at the Governor’s upcoming community forums. Corzine’s new toll scheme, aiming to triple fares on all three major toll roads, would constitute a severe economic blow for | Read More »

Curbing my enthusiasm
You all know that I’m poll afficianado, and I try to evaluate their results with a level of realism. So let me take a moment to hold up a hand and say “let’s curb our enthusiam” in response to Moe’s post about the Rasmussen daily track. There are several polls, especially the Gallup track, that are showing McCain leading this thing now. And I firmly | Read More »
One more example of why Google is in the tank for Obama
I did a Google news search for the term “National Enquirer” and this gem came up at the top of the search. Now, I’ll bet money if you contact Google they will tell you that their search is pristine and can’t be manipulated. I remember when I did a Google search on Bush lied. That is when I knew Google was a whore for the | Read More »
Goldberg pwns Washington Post in 30 seconds.
I am sure some media talking heads today want to discuss the Washington Post story which implies wrong doing on the part of Sarah Palin alledgedly charging the state of Alaska with per diem charges for staying at home. After 30 seconds of google searching, Goldberg found the Alaska Administrative Manual. Big deal, right? In reality it is.
WaPo’s David Ignatius provokes me to rage
Just when I think I can’t get any more disgusted with left wing journalists, comes this insipid, condescending screedfrom David Ignatius of the Washington Post. He starts out innocently enough, talking about how uniquely American this election is, how “lovable” this has turned out, what with the “American Rainbow” and the four “American Rebels”. Then, he turns vicious on Sarah Palin. Get this: It’s a | Read More »
Who do you really want running our country: Brooks & Dunn or Heart?
Promoted, with my own observation: you current and former pop stars out there, think for a moment. Do you really think that the McCain campaign minds it when you loudly and explicitly disavow yourselves from him – and, thus, identify yourselves as being for Obama? I mean, you did catch the entire “celebrity” meme, right? – Moe Lane As yet another indication of the over-the-top | Read More »
Larry Kudlow: There’s Something Missing in St. Paul
Larry Kudlow nails it, again. As much as I love Palin’s speech Kudlow correctly points out that it failed to connect our current economic slump to rising energy costs which are as a direct result of failed Democrat policy. In fact, Democrats want higher energy prices and seek to tax our companies through cap and trade which would crush our economy.
The AP and Gannett further in the tank for Obama
The (Gannett) Tennessean headlined on the top of page 2A an AP story by Matt Apuzzo “Campaign cash hurts Palin’s image”. The subhead was: “More potentially embarrassing details emerge”. No shame here. They are all in the tank. Since they buy the feed and the stories, they get to edit to their liking. The Gannett version left out the last five sentences, in effect, editing | Read More »
