Some Of You Never Thought You Would See This Kind Of Story

    Brother Lane has already covered this matter at great and effective length, but it is certainly worth noting anew that a little more than a year after we were being told by the bien pensant community that we had lost in Iraq, it is now clear that we are winning and that for all practical purposes, the military stage of the reconstruction effort may be | Read More »

    The Audacity Of Vagueness

    I haven’t yet had a chance to watch the speech Barack Obama gave in Berlin. But I have a feeling that it will not measure up to all of the hype and hysteria that have surrounded it. When a candidate for President gives a speech overseas, his audience is mainly used as props and the real focus of the speech are the folks back home. | Read More »

    Caught: Illegal voter registration in VA and rubix cubes

    Warner Todd Huston just wrote about ACORN embezzling issues. Thankfully, we just gave a criminal organization another chunk of change in the Housing Bill. Allegedly, it was to push more people into subprime loans, which they have been doing for the last decade or so. Of course, that was a bad idea. Another big project of theirs is voter registration.  Like so many voter-reg groups, | Read More »

    This is probably not true, but . . .

    The following is circulating rapidly around the internets. In fact, it is circulating faster than the “Barack Hussein Obama is a closet jihadist” chain emails of yore. Hello everyone, As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to “The War Zone”. I wanted | Read More »

    Does Obama get scrutiny or not?

    Compare these two. Speaking to a group of African-American journalists, he says: What I would ask is that I am treated like other candidates in terms of expectations and that people look at my entire record. But his staff is “terrified” of people looking into his history: Reporters who have covered Obama’s biography or his problems with certain voter blocs have been challenged the most | Read More »

    A certain British newspaper, which I will not link to, and do not read because of my support for a certain British football club, caught up with one of Barack’s little brothers (well, technically half brother). Bernard Obama lives in Kenya where he runs a car parts store, but visits his mother, who lives in the UK, quite often. Bernard and Barack were born of | Read More »

    Barack Obama’s European Love Affair

    He was seen with heads of State in Germany, France and England. An estimated 100 thousand gathered to listen to his speech in Berlin. He was treated like a celebrity Rock Star wherever he went in Europe. The first United States Presidential candidate to use Europe specifically as a campaign stop. But where did it get Barack Obama ? Polls here in the good old | Read More »

    McCain Takes Obama To Task Over Troop Treatment

    If it doesn’t make good campaign propaganda, provide useful campaign imagery, or lend itself to raising campaign funds, Obama isn’t interested. We know Obama doesn’t really care about what is happening in Afghanistan. If he did care, Obama would have conducted hearings on Afghanistan. Obama never held a single hearing on Afghanistan: Barack Obama: “I became Chairman of this committee at the beginning of this | Read More »

    Brother of ACORN’s Chief Embezzles $1 Million of Organization’s $$

    Obama’s home political supporters, the leftist “community” organization called ACORN, is guilty of hiding the theft of one million dollars of its funds by the brother of the organization’s founder, Wade Rathke. But, it is even worse than just a case of common embezzlement. It turns out that the ACORN board and brother Wade, leader of the political activist group, tried to cover up the | Read More »

    ACORN and its Connection to Organized Labor

    We have been reporting a bit on the Association of Community Organizations for Reform (ACORN) this week on the Union Label Blog and ACORN is an organization that bears close watch. It was reported that ACORN made $2.9 million from organized labor last year and a lot of this money seems to be slipping past Federal regulators raising significant questions of ACORN ties to big | Read More »

    Russertisms for Obama

    Definition  – Russertism: In the characteristic fashion of the late Tim Russert, an inquiry raised by the juxtaposition of conflicting quotations or facts. Here is the beginning of a list of Russertisms which may be appended from time to time. And of course I am interested to see other’s Russertisms. Alas, to hope they will be actually asked and answered; like channeling Tim Russert; far | Read More »

    WaPo: As Obama Makes Gaffe After Gaffe, Let’s Talk About McCain’s ‘Flubs’

    From the diaries by Jeff Remember when McCain said that he had visited all 57 States during his campaign? Then there was the time that McCain said “Well let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s.” Oh, and what about the time that McCain said “10,000 people died” in the Kansas tornadoes (death toll really 12). Crazy stuff, eh? Wait, let’s | Read More »

    Gushing Immaturity: German Reporter’s Workout With Barack Obama

    Apparently, Bild, a newspaper in Germany, hires 14-year-old, starry-eyed, fan-girls as reporters instead of serious grownups. Or, at least one would be excused in thinking this reporter was a rock-star struck teeny bopper upon reading her gushingly immature account of having an exercise work out with Barack Obama on the German leg of his trip. This report is so obsequious, so saccharine, that it is | Read More »
