Hey, I Feel Better Now!
I have to admit, I was a little down in the dumps over the whole “Bosniak” issue. Of course, I felt it was a duty to correct myself but obviously, admitting error is no one’s idea of fun.On the upside, however, my error on the use of the term “Bosniak” was nowhere near the error Joe Biden made in discussing Lebanon.

The Vice Presidential Debate
I missed the first 15 minutes of the debate but I think that it is safe to say that while each side fulfilled its objectives, Sarah Palin impressed most. In part, this was because expectations were low but even if one tosses aside the expectations game, Palin did what was necessary to revitalize Republicans who had been feeling demoralized because of the polls and because | Read More »
Wonder what the working class folks in Scranton think about this:For the millions of voters getting to know him, Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, portrays himself at times as an average guy who takes the train to work, frets about money and basically has led a middle-class life.”Ladies and gentlemen, your kitchen table is like mine,” Mr. Biden said when Senator | Read More »
Reid’s ‘bankruptcy’ comment drives down DOW
I meant to do something on this myself. $15 billion, folks. Fifteen billion. That’s what the Democratic Senate Majority Leader cost American investors with one stupid comment. – Moe LaneI am shocked, just shocked that the Majority leader’s comment would make such a comment while Wall Street struggles on.Just classy. “We don’t have a lot of leeway on time. One of the individuals in the | Read More »
No Michigan for you!
As an avid Michigander, I was agape when I heard this news today. Yes, I’ve been following the external polls. At this juncture, I believe this to have been a mistake. This was not a bold move. I am waiting to understand why it was so necessary. I can only guess because of money.Conceding Michigan to Obama allows Obama to move resources now to Virginia, | Read More »
I’ve been extremely down the past 2 weeks, as Obama’s lead over McCain continues to grow. Yet, I have this strange feeling that Steve Schmidt and the other strategists, may be saving the most devastating attacks for later this month. Schmidt is a brilliant and aggressive strategist, so i have a hard time believing that he’s just sitting there, not willing to attack Obama. It’s | Read More »
Would it Hurt for Sarah Palin to Acknowledge her Shortcomings in the Debate?
Even I have to admit there were rough spots in Sarah Palin’s interview with Katie Couric. I thought she handled Charlie Gibson very well, but Couric was obviously out to put more pressure on her and play the gotcha game and put her on the spot. She served her purpose effectively. Some of you may disagree, but I believe that Palin didn’t do so great. | Read More »
The Perils of Palin
Sarah Palin hooked me the first time I saw her speak. Until that moment, I was dedicated to my party’s nominee, but there was little passion. I hadn’t anticipated Sen. John McCain winning the GOP nomination for president. I had foreseen Sen. Barack Obama winning his party’s nomination because I know Democratic Party strategy—a brand based on rhetoric and physical appearance coupled with policy that | Read More »
Is it time to give up?
The entire election has changed tones since recent events in the financialworld have gotten the public’s attention. At least, in my view it has. Untilthe last week, I have believed that regardless of the Congressional outlookthis year, the Presidential race would be close, with a slight advantage tous, the same as the last two Presidential elections.Not anymore, though. I think we have given up that | Read More »
President of the United States of Ameri(k)a–Barack Obama??
First, I don’t care about polls. Any POTUS campaign that can have each candidate exchange 10pt leads within a couple of weeks makes me skeptical. However, what I care about is confidence. I can sense a lack of confidence in the McCain campaign. First, the VP nominee is nowhere to be found. Second, McCain is reading prepared statements at town hall meetings in Iowa. Third, | Read More »
Good New McCain Ad
I don’t know how much play it will get, but hopefully a good bit.
Open letter to Senator McCain
Dear Senator McCain, I’m going to be honest. You were my third choice in the GOP primaries, behind the great Rudy Giuliani and the brilliant Mitt Romney. However, this presidential election is a choice between two men, two competing visions, and I have every intention of voting for you on November 4th. Although this sounds like a cliche, this election is the most important, at | Read More »
“Shouldn’t somebody in the media ask Obama why he was Fannie Mae’s favorite senator?”
John McCain, get Back to Washington!
Here are the facts: For two weeks I was on the phone everyday with Secretary Paulson and the congressional leaders making sure that the principles that have been ultimately adopted were incorporated in the bill. Here are the facts, Senator Obama. The bill that you claimed credit for didn’t pass. Here are the facts: 94 Democrats opposed “your” bill. You can’t blame John McCain, and | Read More »
