The Funniest Damn News Headline I’ve Ever Seen
Calling Obama’s speech “transcendent” the world’s most powerful woman said she cried her eyelashes off while listening to the Messiah accept his nomination from the Democrat party to be the Nation’s very first Kenyan-American President. Yes, I said “Kenyan.” African American status is reserved for those descendants of slaves in America. Barack Obama is not such a descendant…and doesn’t have the right to call himself | Read More »
MI Morning Update: Obama’s speech, more style than substance…as usual
67 Days Until Election Day August 29, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: MCCAIN VP PICK…is due out today around 11:00am. There was unbelievable speculation, theories and conjecture throughout the evening…but nothing more. OBAMA’S SPEECH…the speech is over, the fireworks have faded and the Democratic National Convention is over, but the fact that Barack Obama lacks the experience and temperament to be this country’s commander in chief remains unchanged. | Read More »
Sorry, America, But Your Projects Are On Hold
If 80% of the people think their country is on the wrong track, then what do you do? Well sure: you propose a totally different track for them to follow. Adulation, and hopefully power, ensue. Last night, from Barack Obama, we got a double-espresso shot of national vision. The comparison with the FDR and JFK moments in history was not only intentional. It was also | Read More »
Those Seven Words
I’m from Illinois. I have followed Barack Obama’s political career since he first made his run for the US Senate in 2004, rising from obscurity to win the Democratic primary before stomping Alan Keyes in the general. That campaign was similar in many ways to the one he is currently waging; in particular, he was adored by the young voters of Illinois, and his popularity | Read More »
The Obama Speech
A very good, very eloquent, very powerful case for a cause I do not believe in. It was delivered well, The atmospherics were impressive, if more than a little bit imperial. But at the end of the day, we have to decide whether we are going to buy into a political ideology merely because it is dressed up in eloquent words. Can we? Harsh shot | Read More »
RedState’s Take on Obama’s Speech
This was not an uplifting, unifying, post-partisan speech. It was a typical Democrat speech, an act of attack to disguise a record thinner than that of any president. It was an act of religious prayer for the believers, not evangelism to the nonbelievers. When he declared he would engage in specifics, he continued to offer even more promises without explanation of how or why – | Read More »
BREAKING: Obama Campaign “Mad as Hell” At McCain
Several reliable sources tell me, riffing off the Jonathan Martin piece, that the Obama camp is “mad as hell” at John McCain for stealing his thunder. As Martin reports: Tonight would be political malpractice,” Obama communications chief Dan Pfeiffer told Politico. “It’s one more piece of evidence that the McCain campaign is a war room masquerading as a presidential campaign.” I’m told the Democrats, recognizing | Read More »

The funny thing about that Obama temple
Jeff Emanuel has a full rundown of Obama’s attempt to photoshop himself into the West Wing, and it struck me as I was reading it: I wonder if the set designer in question has ever been to the White House? The funny thing about the cinematic depiction of the White House and the West Wing is that it’s always so grand and impressive. In reality, | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Convention Film Leaked
The story of how he began – in his own words. Interesting in that none of this is true from start to finish. Obama’s Bio Film
McCain’s new web ad.
The best part? Obama himself (after election, prior to his taking the oath of office): You know, I am a believer in … in knowing what you’re doing when you apply for a job. Uh, and I think that … if I were seriously to consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the | Read More »
Decent Gallup bounce for Obama.
48 – 42 (+6 Obama) on the Gallup Poll; Rasmussen’s currently tied at 47/47, but the explanatory text suggests that tomorrow’s numbers are going to be more Obama-friendly (they float the concept of a possible ‘modest lead,’ which means… I have no idea). While this technically represents Monday through Wednesday, today’s numbers probably are not taking into account the Wednesday lineup of speakers, which means | Read More »
Obama’s Evolving Stance on Missile Defense
Earlier this year Barack Obama made a few promises to the Priorities Action Fund, a left-wing organization devoted to cutting the Pentagon’s budget by 15%: “I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.” “I will not weaponize space.” “I will slow our development of future combat systems.” Obama’s rhetoric sent shock waves through the missile defense community. After years of budget cuts and setbacks | Read More »
