Joe Klein says McCain is “surrounded with Jews”
Joe Klein, TIME glossy infotainment magazine columnist, is so enthralled with Barack Obama that it has driven him to anti-Semitic accusation.. In his counterfactual column of yesterday, McCain’s Foreign Policy Frustration, Klein announces: The strategic question here is whether to go for regime change [in Iran] or diplomatic engagement. McCain hasn’t said he was for regime change, but he has rattled sabers noisily, joked about | Read More »
Barack Obama Is Out of Focus
Earlier, this week, Barack Obama cancelled plans to visit wounded soldiers who were stationed in Germany, opting instead to “tour around a little bit.” As if it wasn’t enough that he was spending time campaigning in Europe, a continent that does not encompass the United States, he also managed to shun the people who have and still do fight for his right to freely campaign | Read More »
Maybe it’s time for us to promulgate a new acronym: S.T.O.P. The meaning? StopThe Obama Pandering! Video link
An outrageous violation of Senator Obama’s religious privacy.
Somebody actually went and dug out Obama’s written prayer note that he inserted (as per the custom) in the Wailing Wall… then had it published in a local Israeli newspaper. As per a AP report of a while back, notes placed there are not to be read by human eyes! They are prayers holding the name of God, and as per longstanding Jewish religious custom | Read More »
Obama’s Berlin Campaign Rally Too Presumptuous
In the wake of Obama’s Berlin speech, the media debates whether Obama is too presumptuous. ABC World News reported: “To his admirers, it was a soaring speech, with a new vision. To his detractors, it was presumptuous that a candidate for president would deliver a speech as if he were president.” Michael Finnegan reports “the staging of the Berlin event has led critics to accuse | Read More »
Chuck Hagel On Iraq: Forget 2007 and 2008, That’s Ancient History Now
Chuck Hagel, fresh from his trip to Iraq to provide a patina of bipartisanship to Barack Obama, tips the hand of the Obama camp’s inability to explain away Obama’s terrible misjudgment in opposing the “surge”: “Quit talking about, ‘Did the surge work or not work,’ or, ‘Did you vote for this or support this,’” Hagel said Thursday on a conference call with reporters. “Get out | Read More »
Wincing While Winning
http://www.seriousmayhem.com It makes no sense to me. I wasn’t raised to think like the blame-America-first crowd. It’s not an entirely comparable situation, but when Clinton decided to send troops into former Yugoslavia in the 1990’s I supported the idea. I didn’t entirely like the fact that we were sending American boys into a brutal civil war, but I could understand what tore at the president’s | Read More »
McCain as Luke Skywalker, again? Out of the media’s Death Star
I’ve come to the recent realization that John McCain’s campaign is just like Luke Skywalker getting out of the Death Star – the media is firing at them from every direction, they’re coming in from everywhere. It confirms my worst suspicions about the collective intellect of those who cover politics for the major news outlets. I’ve never seen such a band a happy dupes, at | Read More »
The Gospel of Obamessiah According to Gerard Baker
Go here. And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, | Read More »
The Power Of Christ Compels You…
Sorry – a la “The Exorcist” – that’s all that ran through my head as I listened to the Obamessiah give his sermon at a place that once enjoyed a similar spectacle when Hitler addressed his OWN zealots…and we all know how well THAT worked out, don’t we? I’m likely “dirtied” by the speech because I first heard it as Limbaugh threw down his commentary | Read More »
Well, Landstuhl *was* asking Obama to leave his media entourage behind.
Via Patterico and [Protein Wisdom] (http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=12998) we see a bit more on Senator Obama’s sense of priorities. From NBC’s Jim Miklaszewski and Courtney Kube A U.S. military official tells NBC News they were making preparations for Sen. Barack Obama to visit wounded troops at the Landstuhl Medical Center at Ramstein, Germany on Friday, but “for some reason the visit was called off.” One military official | Read More »
Obama Hits a Wall! Will Media Highlight MAJOR Obama Gaffe in Berlin Speech?
Obama’s speech today in Berlin, hailed as a “major” address, has at least one major, glaring error that shows that nether Obama nor his handlers and speech writers were thoroughly familiar with the facts. Obama’s main theme was about the “walls” that separate all of us one from another. He claims that many of these “walls” have been taken down and hails that as progress. | Read More »

The Chronology Of The Surge
A back-and-forth has developed over whether John McCain accurately stated the history behind the surge and the implementation of the counterinsurgency strategy in some recent comments. McCain suggested that the surge and the counterinsurgency strategy helped bring about the Anbar awakening. Strictly speaking, the awakening began prior to the surge and the counterinsurgency strategy. However, that does not end the analysis, as this article points | Read More »
Senator, You Are No Reagan!
Citizen of the world. Hm… aren’t we all? At least he’s not a jelly filled doughnut. Well…let me take that back.I was in the colors team presented at Pres. Reagan’s “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” speech. We kind of gave a chuckle at the time. ‘Yeah, right. Like that’s ever going to happen.’ I was out of the Army and in my first year | Read More »
