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 »
More Dems Question Obama’s Readiness
Senator McCain’s presidential campaign released a web video, entitled “Remote Control.” The video features more Democrats, questioning Obama’s ability to lead. Simply devastating.
Britney Spears’ Set Designer – “[Barack’s] is more elaborate and complicated”
The New York Post reports: But the set is designed to evoke the White House and the Lincoln Memorial, not the Acropolis, said staging supervisor Bobby Allen, a Spears set vet. “We’ve done Britney’s sets and a whole bunch of rock shows, but this was far more elaborate and complicated and we had to do it in far less time,” said Allen, of RDA Entertainment. | Read More »
Washington Post vote database: Barack Obama voted with party 96%.
I firmly agree with Jim Geraghty that Republicans must hammer Senator Barack Obama’s voting record while in Congress and note that he is anything but a uniter. In fact, according to the Washington Post vote database, Senator Obama voted with his party 96% of the time he was present. Compare that to John McCain’s record of voting with his party 88% of the time. The | Read More »
Obama Campaign Tries to Shut Down Chicago Radio Show
Members of Barack Obama’s campaign HQ in Chicago tried to shut down a local radio show on the City’s most powerful radio signal, WGN 720, because they didn’t like a conservative guest that was on going on the air to discuss Senator Barack Obama’s ties to local terrorist William Ayers. This is a shocking attempt at stifling political free speech and a bald attempt to | Read More »
Obama wants to silence his critics
Yesterday I noted how Obama tried to sick the Justice Department on his opponents and now he is trying to silence the media as well: And tonight, the campaign launched a more specific campaign: an effort to disrupt the appearance by a writer for National Review, Stanley Kurtz, on a Chicago radio program. Kurtz has been writing about Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers, and has | Read More »
