World Popularity vs. Obama: That’s Right, It Means NOTHING
A liberal says, “Whether we like it or not, we are part of the whole world, and we have to live with everybody else.” A historian says, “Whether they like it or not, we are part of the whole world, and everybody else has to live with us.” At first, I saw this post about the potential for the DOW to rise 1,000 points if | Read More »
“Celebrity distorts democracy by giving the rich, beautiful, and famous more authority than they deserve.”Maureen Dowd, The New York Times, “Giant Puppet Show”(Poor Maureen, if only you could have seen the future, those words would never have escaped your pen.) What do you get when you cross two of the biggest celebrities in the world? I know, you’re thinking “Apple” right? But, no, that’s not | Read More »
Obama advisor George Clooney says…
The Brit press, in the form of their Daily Mail, tells us that Obama has a new advisor: George Clooney. I haven’t followed Clooney’s acting career, but he is a Hollywood actor who played a doctor on television and more recently was involved in a motorcycle accident. The London tabloid gives us some specifics: [H]e is also sharing with Obama his strong opinions on Iraq | Read More »
We don’t think you’re nuts. We think you are wrong. There’s a difference.
The Evangelical Vote of 2008
In 2004 they went overwhelmingly for George Bush over John Kerry. In the 1990s Clinton got 40-45%. This time around Evangelicals are up for grabs; or are they? And if they aren’t then why aren’t they? I consider myself a Christian, I accepted Jesus as my lord and savior, I’ve read the bible, I pray before I rest my head; the whole deal, but this | Read More »
And the Obama campaign comes through for me again!
I was just thinking about whether we could legitimately put this video: …back on the front page. It’d would have been a little difficult to justify: there’s a half-life to any good ad, and this one is getting to be weeks old by now. Still a little juice left, but would it have really been worth it? Apparently, the Obama campaign thought so, because they | Read More »
Obama: an extremist and a liar on abortion
Obama’s abortion extremism and deception is coming to light. Yuval Levin explains: Six years ago, Congress passed the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act,” making it illegal to kill a child who is fully born during an attempted abortion. The bill passed without a single opposing vote in either house, and was signed into law by President Bush on August 5, 2002. When he was a state | Read More »
Is Obama American Enough?
The New York Daily News reports that Hillary’s chief strategist urged her to undermine Obama as a “quasi-American whose ‘lack of American roots’ are outside the political mainstream:” According to an inside-the-bunker article being published in The Atlantic on Monday, key adviser Mark Penn ridiculed Obama’s “boyhood in Indonesia and his life in Hawaii,” arguing Obama’s multicultural diversity could be exploited. [. . .]Penn added, | Read More »
Today’s “Media looking for a pony in there somewhere” video clip…
…comes to us courtesy of Hot Air. Interesting to see how they couldn’t find one at all, at all: Just for the record: no, this is not a good sign for the Obama campaign. And also for the record: the reason why there’s no reaching across the aisle at this point might have something to do with the fact that for the last eight years | Read More »
This is worth repeating over and over again
The Kremlin tore in to John McCain via his chief foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, on Saturday. The Russians, angry at McCain’s strong statement denouncing Russia’s invasion of Georgia, pointed out that Scheunemann had lobbied for American ally Georgia. At the same time the Kremlin was attacking John McCain for Scheunemann’s ties to Georgia . . . you guessed it . . . Barack Obama’s | Read More »
Watch the MSM fawn over the vacating Obama
Er, I mean: “vacationing Obama.” Obama vacations in Hawaii this week, so brace for yourself of plenty of this garbage: Anatomy of a Presidential Candidate’s Vacation, Part I. Check the link. I’m not making that up.
U.C. Berkeley Researchers Blab About Barack’s Stealth Coating
[Update: Warning. Parody? The related story is that Barack Obama is going on vacation... (all humor attributable to Drudge).] Here it is, from the Times in Britain: U.C. Berkeley researchers have blabbed to the press about their proprietary light-bending coatings, invented by a team led by Xiang Zhang, that should allow for the complete invisibility of human beings and cloaking them as well as their | Read More »
Obama: “This is not the John Edwards that I knew”
As everyone knows, John Edwards admitted yesterday to carrying on an adulterous relationship with a “documentary film maker” while his wife was battling cancer. Yes, we know, as we’ve known since 1992, that EVERYONE commits adultery but the bar of decency and common sense while engaging in adultery has certainly been lowered in the past 24 hours. You can step right across it now. Part | Read More »
The Free Trade Candidate For President
His identity is no surprise. The only surprising thing is that in this day and age, the argument still needs to be made that free trade is a far better policy to follow than is the mindless and destructive protectionist–and yes, xenophobic–prescription Barack Obama’s allies are cooking up.
