Biden: A masterful stroke of genius from the Obama camp
With the pick of Joe Biden the Obama campaign has managed to put Delaware into play and all of its Electoral Votes. Biden all but guarantees that Obama will win that state. Wow! I am breathless with the boldness of this move. It will certainly require the McCain campaign to go back and rethink its nominee — someone who could possibly counteract the Joementum that | Read More »
As The Cock Crew
First posted at The Minority Report And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, “This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.” And again he denied with an oath, “I do not know the man.” And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, “Surely thou also | Read More »
With “Friends” Like This — Credibility On The Net
In perusing the web this morning, I came across this headline, Obama’s Campaign Admits Obama is a Muslim!!!!! My first thought was that I had somehow missed an important news story. So, I clicked on the site. There I learned that during David Axelrod’s August 1 appearance on Good Morning America, during which he “did” admit that Sen Obama had brought up the issue of | Read More »
On the anniversary of a vital Christian event
Today, August 15, is a very special date on the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar: it is a holy day, the Feast of the Assumption. Today and this entire weekend is also special to the Eastern Orthodox Church; they will be celebrating the Dormition of the Theotokos (literally the falling asleep in God of Mary, the Mother of God). While the two churches view the event | Read More »
Mind-numbing stupidity about America’s faithful
Justin Ewers of US Snooze & World Report published this interesting bit of selective fact finding/editorializing regarding the surprising shift of self-identified religious voters toward Barack Obama. Here’s the link to the original article.
The real meaning of the Atlantic Monthly article
The thoroughly-hyped article in The Atlantic, on the demise of the Hillary Clinton campaign is out, and it makes interesting reading, but one point I haven’t seen anyone make yet is that this article puts a real damper on any plans she has to run for president in 2012 if Barack Obama loses to John McCain. Two things struck me right away. The first was | Read More »
Broken Promises — The Barack Obama Legacy
Writing in the Evening Standard, in a piece entitled Barack Obama’s broken promise to African village David Cohen last week detailed a promise made by Barack Obama to the village of Kogelo in Kenya. More than two years ago, traveling to the village of his 86-year old Kenyan step-grandmother, Barack Obama promised to come to the aid of the school named in his honor. As | 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 »
MSM, you ignorant slut! You know the rules; it takes more than a whirlwind guided tour of photo-ops in Europe and the Middle East to prove one’s readiness to handle foreign policy. Oh, but let’s all shed a tear for poor Barack Obama. He needed the pictures to fill the free space created on his website from erasing previous positions on Wright and the surge, | Read More »
The New York Times Headlines on November 5, 2008
By Ima Tuele, of New York Times America had the opportunity yesterday to heal the racial divide in this country, but elected instead to cling to the divisive politics of the past. America could have elected a young, articulate and vibrant black man to become the 44th President of the United States. Instead, it was business as usual as white voters overwhelmingly chose a doddering | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Campaign Add Agency – The MSM
I have followed politics for my entire adult life. In fact even as an older teen in the early seventies was somewhat of an oddity concerning politics. Not only was I conservative but as a teenager I actually was active in not only following politics but in campaigning for candidates that I was not yet old enough to vote for. In my more than 30 | Read More »
Earth to McCain: Hold Your Fire on VP Pick until GOP Convention!!!
Recently, [Robert Novak] (http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=27630) has come out with a developing story that the McCain campaign is seriously considering naming a VP pick this week. Presumably, this is being done to help counter the overwhelming pro-Obama coverage that is likely to take place this week with his overseas trip. Until now, I had ignored the rumors I’ve heard from multiple sources that the Obama campaign had | Read More »
Are We There Yet? Victory in Iraq and the 2008 Election
“Events, dear boy, events.” –Former British PM Harold Macmillan on the greatest threat to any government’s plans. “In chaos there is opportunity” –Variously attributed. It’s time for Republicans to decide: are we willing to stake the election on the proposition that we have won the war in Iraq?
Barack Obama–the Master of Illusion….
Call Barack Obama Houdini, because his campaign is one big magic act. He has created illusion after illusion, and the mainstream media have either, let him get away with it, or in some cases, actively aided and abetted him. Please, allow me to explain. First of all, during the Democratic primary Obama created the illusion, starting in late February, that he was already the nominee | Read More »
