Social Welfare and the Republican Party
The disparate media attention due to the recent (current as of this writing) overseas trip by Barack Obama, along with recent polling data, has highlighted a potentially major weakness in the McCain campaign. Our opponent excites people above, beyond, and outside the scope of logical reasoning. He enamors, hypnotizes, and woos them. He has clear strengths in terms of charisma and presence. The July 21 | Read More »
Quest for the Democratic VP
Someone posted here on RS that Obama should ‘run by himself’. While that might be the best solution, the media has actually published a list of qualifications straight from the burning bush. The New York Times describes Obama’s [search] (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/30/us/politics/30veep.html?_r=1&ref=politics&oref=slogin) for a VP as a ‘quest’ involving a small army of researchers looking into past histories. While this generally is a wise tactic, how would | Read More »

Why does media discriminate against this senator?
It’s a touchy point with me, the matter of Sen. John McCain’s age. Media just can’t talk about it enough—the latest is an Associated Press story that (again) explores how voters feel about the matter. Seems like only yesterday the Democratic Party as well as media maintained an obsession with equal rights for all including those who don’t belong to Gen X. The AP story | Read More »
