I BACK MAC!!! How We Can Win, 1952-Style
The last time that the general election’s final candidates did not feature either the incumbent President or Vice President was 1952, when Dwight Eisenhower (R-KS) took on Adlai Stevenson, Jr. (D-IL). The contest had many similarities to 2008: -The Republican was a war hero -The Democrat was a skilled orator -The Democrat was from Illinois -The current (then-Korean, now-Iraq) war’s status/success was hotly debated -The | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Priority list.
Currently, it’s like this: 1). Visit wounded soldiers at Landstuhl. Make campaign speech at German Victory Column in Berlin*. 2). Visit wounded soldiers at Landstuhl. Take the evening off to go see Berlin. 3). Visit wounded soldiers at Landstuhl. Bask in the tepid, languid adoration of Paris. 4). Visit wounded soldiers at Landstuhl. Get his Presidential transition team going. I could live with #1 and | Read More »
McCain leads in Colorado, close in Michigan and Minnesota
How Close are Colorado, Minnesota, and Michigan? I’m not going to pay an enormous amount of attention to the polls until after the conventions, because I expect Obama to get a big bump coming out of Denver (10 points? 15? 20?) and I expect McCain to steadily close that gap after the Republican convention. The race will probably be close by October, but each candidate | Read More »

Bar Complaint Filed Against Obama For His Lack of Honesty
Though Obama has not released his bar application (transparency is just a bumper sticker for him), someone has filed a bar complaint. The complaint charges Barack Obama with failing to disclose his drug use. As I’ve written about in the past, bar applications are lengthy things to fill out and they go into a host of details from drug use to parking tickets. Given how | Read More »
Barack Obamessiah Goes To Berlin: Not Since 1939 Have So Many Germans Turned Out To Hear A Politician in Berlin
Barack Obama is set to speak at the Victory Column in Berlin. The Victory Column commemorates Germany’s last military victory over France and Austria in the last 1860′s – early 1870′s. From that link: Berlin authorities say that as many as a million people could attend. Four TV stations are broadcasting the entire speech, and the rest are scrambling to secure prime locations at the | Read More »
The End Of Freedom Of Speech
No one has ever accused me of being an alarmist, but I fear what will take place if the Dimocrats take it all in November. Barack Obama on his flight to Germany accosted Major Garrett in why was it that Fox News was always on wherever he went in Iraq and Afghanistan. He alluded that President Bush maybe mandated that only Fox would be shown.They | Read More »
Obama’s European Omission: Our Unbreakable Bond of Belief
Accepting President John F. Kennedy’s challenge to “Let them come,” Senator Barack Obama will descend upon Berlin – a Phoenix of Freedom – to lecture the world on the state of the Transatlantic relationship. Such a speech is ironic, for Senator Obama has yet to show any understanding of the fundamental truths that have linked the Transatlantic Alliance through time and tribulations. As recently practiced | Read More »
RNC Chairman kicks-off national tour at bustling Michigan HQ
Yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to check out the new McCain regional headquarters down in Farmington Hills while they hosted a special guest. Republican National Committee Chairman Robert “Mike” Duncan was in town to officially “open” the center and to spotlight some of the tools and efforts the GOP is going to be using this fall in states like Michigan. While the Michigan McCain | Read More »
Obama’s CHANGE for the Better
The political password of Obama is the need for “change, America is heading in the wrong direction”, the question is, which direction should America take to solve its economic and military problems?
Barack Obama’s Tax Plan
Explained by Dan Mitchell and well worth watching:
Obama to speak in front of the Siegessaule, a war momument venerated by the Nazi’s
Sieg Heil, SiegesSaule, Obama? [Updated] Obama’s efforts to catapult himself into the universe of iconic figures took an especially creepy turn today with this poster, which is advertising his speech before a war monument (the Siegessaule) venerated by the Nazi’s. Give the dude some blond hair and blue eyes and we’re talking a candidate for the Nazi Youth. The last guy in Germany with this | Read More »
“If John McCain Said This, The Senility Jokes Wouldn’t Stop” Cont’d
Well, either Senator Obama was confused or he was trying to burnish his resume in misleading fashion. But I like to be high-minded about the matter so I join in Jon Henke’s wishes at the end of his post.
How Much Support Did Barack Obama Find In Iraq For His Withdrawal Plan?
Not much, as it turns out: THE INITIAL MEDIA coverage of Barack Obama’s visit to Iraq suggested that the Democratic candidate found agreement with his plan to withdraw all U.S. combat forces on a 16-month timetable. So it seems worthwhile to point out that, by Mr. Obama’s own account, neither U.S. commanders nor Iraq’s principal political leaders actually support his strategy. Gen. David H. Petraeus, | Read More »
