How do we know John McCain Did Best at Saddleback? The Media is Pushing the “McCain Cheated” Theory for Obama

    “McCain did well because he understands the issues close to the hearts of the people at Saddleback. Obama did poorly because he does not understand those issues and only built up the ‘I’m a man of faith’ narrative to hide that fact.”Remember back in 2004 when George Bush trounced John Kerry in the debates? The left saw a funny shape under Bush’s jacket and immediately | Read More »

    George Washington Was Right

    McCain is in best position since general election began

    Following the best projection pollster site of the cycle, fivethirtyeight, the Obama friendly writer admits that: Although Barack Obama remains a slight favorite in this election, his position is more vulnerable than at any point since the primaries concluded, and he no longer appears to have a built-in strength in the electoral college that we had attributed to him before. The reason is a new | Read More »

    How the Democrats Intend to Create Five Million New Jobs

    So Barack Obama is running ads on the Olympic Games, promising to create five million new jobs by way of building an “alternative-energy” economy. This is also something Nancy Pelosi talks about a fair bit. And of course the newly-created jobs are to be of the Good, High-Paying™ variety, which is Democrat-speak for: Union.What’s this all about? In a word: Redistribution.Let me explain…

    Obama is not underperforming

    So the MSM is so focused on Obama and so surprised that the race is close, there have been a good number of articles pondering: Why is Obama underperforming?I don’t think he is. He is still relatively popular (53/34). He is still ahead in national polls. The most recent head-to-head polls with Obama and non-McCain Republicans, show Obama crushing the Rs: Obama-Romney 49-41; Obama-Huckabee 50-39. | Read More »

    Under The Bus

    So much for Wesley Clark attending the Democratic National Convention; Barack Obama basically told him that he was uninvited. And I think that we all know why. John Edwards humiliated his wife, his children, his supporters and the Democratic Party in general thanks to a whole lot of personal shenanigans and is therefore not wanted in Denver when convention time rolls around. But in a | Read More »

    Saddleback And Its Aftermath

    I missed the McCain and Obama interviews with Rick Warren last night, but from the looks of things, McCain was the one who gained the most from the interviews. This fits in with a lot of the e-mails that I received regarding the appearances. Now, the e-mails that I received are from people predisposed to voting for McCain, but at the same time, many of | Read More »

    How do we know that McCain won the Saddleback forum?

    Because his opponent’s people are apparently claiming that McCain cheated, that’s how. Via Hot Air Headlines: The Obama people must feel that he didn’t do quite as well as they might have wanted to in that context, because that–what they’re putting out privately is that McCain may not have been in the cone of silence and may have had some ability to overhear what the | Read More »

    When Life Begins: “Above my pay grade”

    Rick Warren: “At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?”Barack Obama: “Whether you are looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity is, you know, above my pay grade.”(Image revised per our fearless leader’s request.

    Obama Says McCain Camp Paints Obama As The Anti-Christ

    Immediately after Obama’s appearance with the reverend Rick Warren, the Democrats’ presumptuous nominee was interviewed by CBN News Senior National Correspondent, David Brody.Among other things Brody asked Obama whether the McCain campaign is purposely using imaginary to scare people about him being the anti-Christ.

    Thoughts on Obama’s Leadership Qualities

    This thought was prompted by an email thread which sought to understand the process and objectives by which Obama will be making his VP pick.It’s astounding how little we know about Obama’s character as a leader. For all we know, he could be sitting in those meetings letting Eric Holder pull his strings. Or he could be deciding out of insecurity, and will intentionally pick | Read More »

    Gotta keep your sense of humor, Barry.

    Apparently, Obama’s people are having the vapors over McCain’s visible indifference towards smoothing the One’s way through life: The Obama campaign is upset with John McCain far failing to defend Obama from charges leveled by Jerome Corsi in his new book, “The Obama Nation.” But since when is it the job of a presidential candidate to comment on the substance of a book he presumably | Read More »

    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”.By contrast, | Read More »

    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 »
