The Problem with the Financial Crisis in America
The problem with the financial crisis in America is not that it happened, but rather that we are trying to fix it the way we created it. The crisis was objectively caused by bad loans, the abundance of credit, and the plummet in home prices. Well, how do we get a plummet in home prices?
McCain Leads – Obama Changes
McCain Leads – Obama ChangesDid Senator Obiden throw too many grenades during his campaign speeches?General Colin Powell, A great man and leader defined a leader in this way….”Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.” Senator Obama doesn’t fit this mold because his ability to simplify doesn’t exist and his solutions | Read More »
Bill Clinton: Republican
Really, for all practical purposes, it’s true:Former President Bill Clinton defended Sen. John McCain’s request to delay the first presidential debate, saying McCain did it in “good faith” and pushed organizers to reserve time for economy talk during the debate if the Friday plans move forward.Appearing on Good Morning America Thursday, Clinton told ABC News’ Chris Cuomo that McCain’s push to postpone the debate would | Read More »
Bill Clinton Gets It Right on the Mortgage Bailout
From TheHill.com”He also acknowledged that there was possible danger in his administration’s policy of pressing Fannie Mae, the mortgage company, to lower its credit standards for lower- and middle-income families seeking homes.”Grim
It would seem that this entire “not campaigning…”
…is not entirely true. Clinton won’t campaign for Obama until then.Campaigning for McCain, though, is just fine:Extra points for reminding people who wanted more debates in the first place, Bill.
And Now, For Your Daily Dose Of “Bill Clinton Really Doesn’t Want Barack Obama To Win”

Is Bill Clinton All That Loyal To Barack Obama?
You be the judge:Yes, this is done by a McCain-Palin supporter, as the ending credit makes clear. But this is not the first time that Bill Clinton has gone out of his way to say nice things about John McCain. Nor will it be the last, I expect. There is no way one can believe that he genuinely wants Barack Obama to win the election.More | Read More »
In Case You Thought Differently After The Democratic National Convention . . .
Bill Clinton still dislikes Barack Obama:Former President Bill Clinton has largely kept himself out of the public eye since his wife lost the Democratic primary to Barack Obama.However in a rare television interview tonight the former president called Republican presidential candidate John McCain “a great man” and praised GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as an “instinctively effective candidate.”On a day when Obama sought to | Read More »
Democratic ex-President declares Palin “instinctually effective candidate.”
Because it’s that kind of election, apparently. Also, McCain is a “great man” and Hillary’s position on economic policy was more detailed than Obama’s. (Via Hot Air Headlines)Anybody else notice that a lot of major Democratic leaders are saying things that could be considered… unhelpful for Obama, lately? I exclude Biden from this, of course: he’s just being, well, Biden.
Obama-Biden = Incompetent
Over the past 60 years of presidential elections “experience” has proven a tenuous foothold for those trying to discredit an opponent.For instance Richard Nixon was only 39 years of age when Ike put him on the ticket in 1952. The Democrats, who already hated Nixon because of his take down of Alger Hiss and Helen Gahagan Douglas, pounced on Nixon’s inexperience and alleged unsuitability for | Read More »
Bill Clinton’s “inspiration”
Last night, admittedly intrigued by the speculation on talk radio that “Crazy Ol’ Bill” Clinton just might be the best entertainment of the DNC convention, I tuned in after dinner to listen.Ah, Bill was good; he was quintessentially Clintonian. Admittedly, he has developed into a good speaker. As expected – he is an attorney, after all – oops, I take that back – President Bill | Read More »
Sincere? My Rear
As I sat and listened to all the praise last night about how wonderful Bill Clinton’s speech was – how he is one of the greatest speakers and how he lived up to what he does best. It made me sick but I agree – he is and always has been, the consummate liar.It doesn’t surprise me democrats still love him. They are godless and | Read More »
How About Some Word Clouds?
What are the key words and phrases from the big speeches at the Democratic Convention? Clayton and I have been making word clouds. You can click them to see a larger version in our Flickr account. Here they are:Hillary:Bill:John Kerry:Joe Biden:
Clinton, Kerry, and Biden Lie for Obama
As a Clinton backer in the 90’s… I’m pretty amazed at the irony of last night’s security line up… A president, a Senator and former presidential candidate, and now a Senator and current VP candidate who all argued for unilateral military action against Iraq, noting France and Russia would never support us, because of the threat they posed with their WMDs… whining about McCain support | Read More »
