Don’t Look Now . . .

    But John McCain appears to be having a lot of fun with the campaign, all of the sudden.

The comment about the lightsabers was a funny touch and was designed to get under the | Read More »

    Still Tied

    It must frustrate Barack Obama that for all the talk of his impending Presidential coronation, he is not yet ready to put John McCain away. How unkind of McCain to refuse to acknowledge the fact that the rise of the oceans has slowed and that we should elect as President the man who claims to have outdone King Canute.

    And Speaking Of Flip-Flops

    Gee, I thought that the old, enfeebled, elderly and Methuselah-resembling John McCain wouldn’t stand a sand castle’s chance in an earthquake again the young, vigorous, rhetorically masterful Barack Obama. So I am puzzled at this:Barack Obama’s campaign released a letter this afternoon from campaign manager David Plouffe to the Commission on Presidential Debates only agreeing to the traditional three sanctioned fall debates and single vice | Read More »

    Yet Another Policy Stance Gone Down The Tubes

    Now that Barack Obama has said that he is open to offshore drilling, one wonders what will be the next policy issue on which he will flip-flop for the judges. Perhaps we will soon see a (belated) appreciation for the surge and for the implementation of the counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq. Perhaps we will see a realization that corporate taxes are too high and that | Read More »

    Summertime, and Obama Shows Off His Flip-Flops

    Ah, those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Bermuda shorts, sunscreen, and most certainly in Barack Obama’s case, flip-flops. No, I am not talking about the rubber beach shoes, I am talking about a presumptive presidential candidate who cannot pick one side of an argument, and then stay on it.

    Barack Obama Has a Campaign Staff That Looks Just Like America

    Barack Obama has come under some, in my view, very fair and timely criticism for releasing his inner Al Sharpton last week and engaging in a very juvenile effort at that old Democrat standby, racebaiting.If anyone thinks that Obama is truly a “black” candidate, by this I mean in the political philosophy sense that we equate with Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Cornel West, and others constantly | Read More »

    WaPo: Shocked By Its Own Pro Obama Bias

    The Washington Post’s Deborah Howell has a howeller in the Aug. 3 edition of the paper revealing how shocked and amazed she was that her own paper had a lopsided tally of Obama photographs compared to how many McCain photos appear in its pages.

    Who played the race card? Rasmussen finds that Obama did

    Rasmussen actually asked people: As for Obama’s comment, 53% of white voters saw it as racist, as did 44% of African-Americans and 61% of all other voters. So who was racist? Unaffiliated voters, by a five-to-one margin, said the McCain ad was not racist. By a much narrower 50% to 38% margin, unaffiliateds viewed Obama’s comment as racist.Perhaps the press and the lunatic lefty bloggers | Read More »
