One of Obama’s mistakes tonight
I watched Rick Warren’s Saddleback event last night. I thought it was interesting. I thought John McCain won, an opening shared by Zack Exley, a former John Kerry staffer. He called Obama’s performance “disappointing” and notes that he had been coached on a number of issues by evangelical leaders but that Obama “kind of went around in circles”, calling it “a little John Kerryesque”.

Conviction is the Key for John McCain
Tonight I saw a Reaganesque John McCain for the first time this campaign.While Barack Obama took great strains to make sure his word choice was even-tilled and didn’t isolate anyone; John McCain demonstrated he is a made of conviction, adhering to basic conservative principles. Whether Rick Warren asked a question regarding abortion, taxation, or “what SCOTUS jurist would you have not nominated”: the major theme | Read More »
McCain Shines, Obama Well…………..
Leading up to this wonderful and gracious forum with Pastor Rick Warren the Pro-Obama media at MSNBC and NBC were like degenerate gamblers placing bets on two cockroaches racing up a wall in a bar somewhere in Queens. You know, they were saying, “Obama looks to shine with this more open younger evangelical crowd” or, “How many of them do you think Obama will gain?” | Read More »
Paging Team McCain: This is the type of ad you should run in the near future. Americans need to know about Senator Obama’s extreme views on abortion. (LvDC)
Barack Obama on Taxes
The Wall Street Journal reports that once again the United States is second only to Japan for the highest corporate tax rate at 39.9% average (federal and state combined). This is 50% higher than the average of our international competitors combined and only strengthens the argument that American companies are becoming less competitive globally because of our domestic policies. Our corporations remain strong enough for | Read More »
Not Our Enemies But Our Own Label Us As Cowards and Killers
NBC(what a surprise right?) led the charge of different media takes on the current Russia/Georgia conflict. On CNN Anderson Cooper reported the news with a graphic in the background that read: “Impotent America?” Retired Army Col. Jack Jacobs wrote an article calling us, “All Hat and No Cattle” Why the usual suspects over at MSNBC, Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann all but placed blame on | Read More »
Romney Not Right Choice for VP
For some time now, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has been mentioned as one of the front runners to be John McCain’s Vice Presidential running mate. But is Romney really a smart choice? Earlier this week, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who opposed Romney for Republican presidential nomination, made an excellent point saying: “I think a lot of people, not just social conservatives, but a | Read More »
Ruffini Predicts: Hillary for VP?
Patrick Ruffini thinks Obama’s VP vetting is nothing more than a head fake and predicts the Democrats’ presumptuous nominee will choose Hillary as his running mate.
Obama campaign breaks anti-soft-money commitments
The LA times has exposed a nice little bit of hypocrisy from Barack Obama’s campaign. His campaign is now directly soliciting high-six-figure checks from unions: In an example of the campaign’s late-innings effort, a very senior Obama campaign official called the political director of one of the largest labor unions about two weeks ago and asked for a $500,000 contribution on top of a similar | Read More »
Kill Your Baby If You Must, It’s OK, But We’ll Hand Out Jillions If Some Of You Keep One
That appears to be the latest Obama marketing strategy for pandering to the pro-life crowd at least. Sadly, there might just be something to this grand little master-stroke from the soulless Messiah. Over the years since Roe, many of us have said that we MUST improve the options for expectant Mothers such that they wouldn’t even dream of killing their babies. From improving the adoption | Read More »
Let’s Have Ourselves Some Popcorn
I have to say that I agree with this analysis. The Obama campaign most certainly had to make sure that it accommodated certain of the Clinton campaign’s requests to ensure that Hillary and Bill Clinton got respectful treatment at the Democratic National Convention. But Obama and his team may very well have given the store away and the Clinton team is now primed and poised | Read More »
Can’t Get Much Closer
McCain and Obama are all tied up in Gallup.
Rick Warren Needs To Ask About BAIPA And Prop 8
Dear Pastor Rick Warren, In 2004, you publicly stated to thousands of pastors that abortion and gay marriage are non-negotiable issues for the evangelical community. You were right. You have a chance once again to stand strong for your Biblical convictions when you interview Senator Obama and Senator McCain tonight. I am sure that you know that Senator Obama’s stance on abortion is more radical | 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 »
Obama will end racism in Iraq
It is all here, in an LA Times blog, and we cannot deny it. As he travels through the country, Razzaq carries with him the resumes and biographies of black Iraqis who he says have been denied jobs and high political appointments because of their race. If Obama wins in November, he’s hoping Iraq’s leaders will take a closer look at the documents and give | Read More »
