Barack Obama Purges His Website. No Longer Critical of the Surge.
When the situation in Iraq was going badly, Barack Obama wanted us to retreat. When the surge took hold and the situation in Iraq improved, Barack Obama wanted us to retreat. No turn in Iraq went unstoned in Obama’s commitment to retreat and surrender. Not any more. Obama has thrown his old positions under the bus. And, for a guy whose campaign claims to get | Read More »
Democrats Say Obama is Insular, Uncooperative, and Inattentive
Yet more evidence that Democrats love President Bush. They say Bush is arrogant, inarticulate, insular, uncooperative, and inattentive. So what do they do? They nominate the closest equivalent to their allegations. Hey, imitation is the highest form of flattery! Nonetheless, it is humorous to pick through their concerns: – Until a mailing that went out in the past few days, Obama had done little fundraising | Read More »
Why does media discriminate against this senator?
It’s a touchy point with me, the matter of Sen. John McCain’s age. Media just can’t talk about it enough—the latest is an Associated Press story that (again) explores how voters feel about the matter. Seems like only yesterday the Democratic Party as well as media maintained an obsession with equal rights for all including those who don’t belong to Gen X. The AP story | Read More »

The Most Important Congressional Election in the Next 12 Months.
Prepare yourself: we are going to have our arses handed to us in November. I remain cautiously optimistic that McCain might win the White House, but I regard it as a near certainty that we are going to lose 3-6 seats in the Senate, and between 15-30 seats in the House. That is not to say that I want any of these things to happen. | Read More »
Oklahoma Election 2008

To start: Senate Our Current Senators are James Inhofe and Tom Coburn. Tom Coburn is in office until the 2010 election, so it is Inhofe’s seat up for grabs. Let’s look at | Read More »
Barack Obama Voted Four Times To Allow Criminal Charges Against Homeowners Who Defend Their Person and Home With a Gun
In a victory for individuals across the nation, whether they know it or not, the Supreme Court has decided the 2nd amendment does do what it says — give the people the right to keep and bear arms. Barack Obama’s rapid reversal from opposition to agreement on the issue would make mere mortals snap in half under all the G-forces. Despite Obama’s propensity to say | Read More »
MO-GOV: Steelman v. Hulshof for the Republican Nomination [Updated: Kinder Endorses Hulshof]

Rep Hulshof’s can be found here while Steelman’s can be found here. | Read More »
Nine Ideas To Jump-Start The McCain Campaign.
Hi all. I was just brainstorming recently on ideas to help boost McCain’s campaign. Inoticed recently he reshuffled his campaign management, mostly due to pressurefrom the RNC (even though he de facto runs the RNC right now!) and from thisidea that he’s essentially wasted the last 3 months when Obama and Hillary havebeen sparring with each other. Anyways, what follows are my 9 thoughts:
Who Is Barack Obama?
Ryan Lizza offers an answer. This is a very long article, but it is a good one and chock-full of information–some of which is quite disturbing: One day in 1995, Barack Obama went to see his alderman, an influential politician named Toni Preckwinkle, on Chicago’s South Side, where politics had been upended by scandal. Mel Reynolds, a local congressman, was facing charges of sexual assault | Read More »
Obama Supporters Want Their Money Back
Obama is facing a mutiny over his shift right toward the center. The Democrats’ nominee to be, has offended his extremist left wing base with his “shift,” some would say flip flop, on the terrorism surveillance bill: Thousands are using MyBarackObma.com to angrily organize against him because of a changed position on terrorist wiretap legislation that awaits Senate action as early as Wednesday.

A Winning Strategy for Republicans…Umm…Wait…
OK…So, We’re a month away from the Republican Convention and here’s my take on where we are! Gas is over $4.00 a gallon and I’m paying $65 dollars to fill up my Mercury Villager, (It’s a Mini Van. Forget buying a tin can that get’s 40 mpg since I have a wife and 3 kids). I’m reading polls approaching 70 % of the American People | Read More »

[See updates at the bottom that include Gramm's clarification. h/t to my Race42008.com colleague, Aron Goldman] By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report I refer to McCain economics advisor and former Sen.
