MI Morning Update
93 Days until Election Day August 3, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: SUNDAY’S TALK SHOW LINEUP…below. OUTRAGE…America should remember that House Democrats shut down debate on energy policy that would have helped lower gas prices and took a 5 week vacation instead. There IS a difference between Democrats and Republicans. Please check out the article below from The Hill newspaper, as well as this article from Politico. | Read More »
Obama campaign agrees to three debates – after the conventions.
Well, they tried to lipstick the pig, but you know and I know what this means: Due to the late date of the two parties’ nominating conventions, and the relatively short period between the end of the conventions and the first proposed debate, it is likely that the four Commission debates will be the sole series of debates in the fall campaign. Consequently, we believe | Read More »
I’d compliment Barack Obama on his courage for betraying his base on drilling, except that he’s not showing any.
Everybody reading this knows that they’ll accept this slap – like every other slap and outrage – and then meekly go back to working for him and his like the good little drones that they are. They’ll keep sending him money, too. But they’ll whine about it all the while, which will make them feel like they’ve actually accomplished something (for a change) – so | Read More »
Barack Obama Listens To RedState On Oil Drilling
It’s gratifying to know that Barack Obama has been paying attention to us here at RedState. Just yesterday morning, I pointed out that oil drilling was the one issue on which Obama has never compromised his true principles.Since becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee (and being made de facto President of the United States by the media), he’s flip-flopped on nearly every other subject. The only | Read More »
I guess this shouldn’t surprise me
One of my favorite stories about the late Senator Ernest “Fritz” Hollings (Yes, I know it’s kind of sad that I have a favorite Fritz Hollings story. I know it probably speaks to my lack of a personal life.) involves the South Carolina grandee’s off-the-cuff remark concerning certain salacious tabloid photographs of a certain well-known colleague caught in flagrante delicto with a young female friend | Read More »
Worst. Economic. Plan. Ever?
Barack Obama wants to give $1000 handouts to families that will be funded by a windfall profits tax on oil companies. Obama has been talking about this kind of tax for quite a while but it is worth emphasizing anew just how bad the idea is. A windfall profits tax will cut into the profit structure of oil companies–which isn’t nearly as large as people | Read More »
The Latest “Let’s Make The Obama Campaign Sweat” Poll
All tied up in Gallup. So much for the 6-9 point lead Barack Obama held only a few days ago. And this poll is of registered voters; imagine what likely voters–who generally trend Republican–might be thinking.In any event, this is looking more and more to be a race to the finish. The McCain campaign certainly cannot take anything for granted. But contrary to popular belief, | Read More »
Obama Shifts On Offshore Drilling
Mulligan! shouts the man with the two faces. “I uh, well yes surely I support gun control” “Make sure you get that on camera” Barack Obama goes from Jimmy Carter legacy crusader to used car salesman in just whoa! few days. It seems that the Illinois Senator didn’t just change his boxers before he left the house. Now Senator Obama shifts on his long opposition | Read More »
Remember when Barack Obama slammed Hillary Clinton, calling her a “participant” in dirty politics, saying she’ll do and say anything to win? Oh and he and his campaign also tried to play the “Woe is me, they’re attacking my race” card; that worked to some extent. At the time Barack Obama never seemed to point out that those tactics he and his Capos used were | Read More »
Breaking: Obama Ok With Offshore Drilling
While House Republicans call Democrats to come and at least vote on off-shore drilling (H/T), today Obama just threw his fellow Democrats under the bus…
Rick Davis schools David Axelrod on race card
Mark has addressed some of Barack Obama’s campaign’s handling of the “race card” issue. But it is worth watching the appearance. It is astonishing that Axelrod was so unprepared for this:Note that the closing argument that Obama has never proposed an energy tax increase is laughably false with today’s Politico story about funding a $1,000 rebate with a tax on energy companies. Axelrod is just | Read More »
What Senator Obama’s Oil-Price Relief Will Cost
Ok, this is pretty interesting. Senator Obama told us a few weeks ago that John McCain’s proposal for a summer-long Federal tax holiday on gasoline was nothing but empty political theater.So now The One has given us a gesture with quite a bit more theater to it. He wants to give every adult American $500, right now. You can read his plan here.So figure that’s | Read More »
Today is a Good Day to be a Conservative
Driving by a wide cornfield today, listening to Rush Limbaugh’s twentieth anniversary show – hearing the good news about the lowered casualties in Iraq – watching the American left fall over themselves to nominate a cult-of-personality candidate with no answers to offer on war, energy, or the economy, who promptly betrays their trust on every issue that matters – and now the candidate who might | Read More »

Obama, yesterday, told people to just inflate their tires and get a regular car tune up. Rush Limbaugh posted this on his site earlier. You can find a full size image here at Rush’s site.
