Song of Himself
Ever since then Governor Bill Clinton answered the “boxers or briefs” question, presidential campaigns have from time to time become pre-occupied with pop-culture questions designed to demonstrate the candidate’s hipness. Generally, they are harmless curiosities, even if they may actually provide some small subset of barely sentient voters a reason to support or oppose a particular candidate. But sometimes a candidate’s answer to the iPod | Read More »
Obama Lied About Vote Against Live-Birth Abortion Ban, Media Mum
Jill Stanek has done yeoman’s work on uncovering the fact that Barack Obama and his surrogates have been outright lying about Obama’s constant votes against the Live-Birth abortion bills when he was in office in the State legislature. His claims have been a staple of Old Media reports from the beginning, but now that Stanek has revealed the truth we will have to see if | Read More »
Don’t Know What You Got Til It’s Gone
Okay I know what you may be thinking; a Libertarian Republican who supported and still has some support for a moderate Democrat Hillary Clinton. Well, in the larger picture and a choice between two evils, I stood by the lesser of the two. To me Hillary Clinton was just like Bill. She was nowhere near the liberal she tried and failed to make herself out | Read More »
The Teeming Masses Of “Obamacans”: Just Like Bigfoot And The Loch Ness Monster
Okay. We’ve all had our little fun. Can we get back to reality now? Barack Obama is no Chris Rock, but there’s one story he likes to tell on the trail that always makes me laugh. According to the Democratic nominee, there’s a particular breed of Obamaniacs who approach him after events to confess their Obamania–sotto voce. “They whisper to me,” he says. “They say, | Read More »
We Haven’t Covered The Polls In The Past Few Days . . .
So let us note that while Gallup has Obama ahead by 6 points amongst registered voters, Pew’s survey only has Obama up by 3 points and shows that McCain is consolidating support amongst members of the Republican base. And while Obama leads by eight points amongst registered voters in Pennsylvania, the lead shrinks to merely five when likely voters are surveyed. Pennsylvania, surprisingly, is in | Read More »
Mind-numbing stupidity about America’s faithful
Justin Ewers of US Snooze & World Report published this interesting bit of selective fact finding/editorializing regarding the surprising shift of self-identified religious voters toward Barack Obama. Here’s the link to the original article.
Blog may confirm political trap at Saddleback this weekend.
Since seeing the commercials on Fox News announcing a political forum at Saddleback church this Saturday, I always suspected some thing was up. Then I ran across this blog which digs a little deeper and discusses who will be “helping” Rick Warren with questions to Obama and McCain.
Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor War, Nor Troops
The beautiful sand, surf and sun of Hawaii has proved too delightfully relaxing for Senator Obama this week. Sadly, he’s had to miss out on an entire war, taking only enough time to elicit compliance from Russian President Medvedev by decree. So overwhelmed with his vacation is the Senator that he cannot even take the time to help the poor, long-suffering clerks at his own | Read More »
The AP Pimps the Obama & Russian Talking Point With Democrats As Objective Observers
This is so typical. John McCain’s chief foreign policy adviser and his business partner lobbied the senator or his staff on 49 occasions in a 3 1/2-year span while being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by the government of the former Soviet republic of Georgia. Yes, it is the same talking point Obama and the Russians have been using all week. This time they | Read More »
BREAKING: POWELL TO ENDORSE OBAMA AT DEM CONVENTION: Update- Powell representative denies he’ll appear at convention
Needless to say, this is terrible news for McCain and a huge boom for Obama. If this doesn’t give him a bounce, I don’t know what will. Update: Powell spokeswoman Peggy Cifrino denies he’ll be appearing at convention, but doesn’t deny he’ll be endorsing Obama.
John McCain’s Political Brilliance viz: Georgia/Russia and Election 2008
In response to initial questions about how he viewed Barack Obama’s statements on Georgia, McCain said, “There’s no room for partiship now.” Given that any lack of support for Georgia could be political suicide right now, this left Obama’s camp with four options: 1) Agree with McCain’s hard-line stance on Georgia and emphasize unity; this would reenforce the widespread concept that Obama just shifts towards | Read More »
I had Senator Obama figured all wrong on the GWOT.
I mean, I figured that his entire stance was him being really and truly against the war from the start – you know, principled. Dangerously wrong and hideously naive, but principled. Turns out he just wants his cut: Apparently, the junior Senator from Illinois doesn’t like it when we dare to rebuild a country that had been systematically wrecked over the course of more than | Read More »
Maybe he should stay in Hawaii until November?
It’s probably just statistical noise, but I can’t help but notice that Obama’s Rasmussen and Gallup tracking numbers both went up a couple of points once he started his vacation. Makes you wonder whether this Pew Resarch Center poll was on to something. Moe Lane PS: Well, the bump certainly isn’t over his position on the Georgian situation, now is it? Unless you think that | Read More »
Rick Warren Goes to Washington
I wrote a while back about the two presidential candidates’ upcoming appearance at Saddleback. In that post, I wondered whether Rick Warren would have the courage to ask difficult questions of the two candidates, especially concerning Obama’s stance on abortion. Well, it looks like I’m not the only one wondering about these things. Hunter’s open letter to Rick Warren, challenging him to force Obama to | Read More »
Alan Colmes needs some help clearing up his misunderstanding on Barack Obama’s support of infanticide
Barack Obama supports infanticide. This is not subject to debate and is an accurate reflection of Obama’s voting record in the Illinois legislature. Consequently, the left has has to obfuscate the issue. On several occasions, Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in the Illinois legislature. Doing damage control for him, last night Alan Colmes attempted to spin the issue into confusing. Interviewing | Read More »
