First Presidential Debate Analysis

    The first presidential debate was an impressive exchange between the two candidates. This debate was on foreign policy. Well, it was supposed to be. Jim Lehrer completely disregarded the rules governing this debate and decided that the first half should be on the economy. Now before the debate, I realized that given the current financial crisis we find ourselves in, obviously a little ammount of | Read More »

    Psst! Senator McCain, A Debate Is No Time For “Bipartisanship!”

    When the time came for McCain to let the American know how the current crisis came about, he demurred and instead went populist, going on and on abstractly about Wall Street and greed, when the fact is that financial houses were compelled to give housing loans to people with little prospect of paying it back. The role played by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in | Read More »

    Who “won” the debate is irrelevent

    During the first debate of 2004, George Bush was universally declared the loser of the debate. He lost his cool, looked uncomfortable, and seemed to give off an air of “why do I need to be here with this wannabe?”.Let’s be honest, a lot of us on the right watched the televised version of the debate and cringed. We thought Bush had done “ok”, but | Read More »

    MI Morning Update

    37 Days until Election Day September 28, 2008   QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Sen. Obama has the most liberal voting record in the United States Senate. It’s hard to reach across the aisle from that far to the left.”…and…”I don’t even have a seal yet.” – John McCain MORNING UPDATE: SUNDAY MORNING TALK SHOWS…for a summary of the shows, see below.

    I don’t have my own seal yet, what did yours cost?

    Roughly a few thousand votes per day, I’d estimate.When Barak Obama mischaracterized (lied about) Kissinger, I expected the “I served with Henry Kissinger. I know Henry Kissinger. Henry Kissinger is a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Henry Kissinger!…And look for Dr. Kissinger to verify this publicly before daylight.”Then B.O. stunk up the joint with yet another broken promise. This one to Caucus4Priorities regarding his | Read More »

    What Sarah Palin NEEDS to accomplish in the debate

    There has arguably NEVER been a more anticipated Vice Presidential debate, or one more fraught with importance for our nation. But hey, no pressure!It is of absolute importance that Sarah Palin and those helping her prepare for the debate do not approach it as if it were a pass-fail test to be graded by media pundits. Governor Palin, simply take it for granted that the | Read More »

    Obama has a bracelet

    Obama had to stutter for a few seconds and then read the name on the bracelet to remember the soldier’s name. How sad is that?My sons had a calling to join the Army. Both front line. I can tell you that they could care less what I thought. In fact, they would be embarrassed if a Presidental candidate had said anything about “stopping a war” | Read More »

    Another missed opportunity for McCain

    I was watching the debate last night and Lehrer asked Obama how he would “rule the country as President”. Obama responded “I would rule…”. When the question shifted to McCain, I wanted him to say something like…Jim, I am asking the citizens of this country to elect me as their President. Presidents serve their fellow citizens, kings rule over their people. This idea of a | Read More »

    Shame on CNN

    CNN should be ashamed of the way they are following the Presidential Campaign. They blatantly present the Democratic propaganda and even have the nerve to publish polls that were primarily Democratic participants. Why would they feel committed to conduct such a childish poll? It’s apparent that the “big dogs” at CNN have their hands in the hip pocket of the Democratic camp and that in | Read More »

    CNN poll showing Obama won debate weighted 14% plus Dems

    Well we all know by know that the debate is only a sideshow the real war is in the spin afterward. Perhaps that is why CNN showed a debate poll showing Obama winning the debate by a large margin. Of course that is easy to understand when you know that the poll had 41% Dems, 27% RepFrom Newsbusters Everybody is talking about this poll from | Read More »

    Michael Halperin Wants To Have Obama’s Baby

    Our old friend Mark Halperin is at it again. After spending much of the 2004 campaign with his eyes locked on Democrat talking points as firmly as his lips were bonded to John Kerry’s posterior, Halp-less has released his ‘analysis’ of last night’s debate. (see,8816,1845106,00.html)There are echoes throughout of the infamous October 2004 memo, where young Mark directed the ABC news organization to stop | Read More »

    McCain Never Once Looked at Obama

    [Which was done, at great length. Let me assure the author: it was due to slight contempt, mixed with the certain knowledge that it’d tick people like you off.][The fear? Sorry, that’s just projection. I mean, why would McCain be afraid of somebody so willing to follow McCain’s lead? – Moe Lane]

    McCain clobbers Obama in debate

    John McCain came out of the Presidential debate looking Presidential, knowledgeable, experienced, and a man of sound judgment. Obama came off as repetitive, dangerously inexperienced, and desperately making puerile interruptions.A few major talking points we should have out of this victory:When Obama was repeteadly asked what he would cut, he segued into a laundry list, Christmas wish list of everything he would spend on, while | Read More »

    Policy Wonk versus Action Man

    As the households across America digest the debate many heard last night, I’m sure many conversations will be had between spouses. And, as we all know, time will tell who won this debate. The results may show within the polls, although these are likely going to be skewed and hard to decipher due to the extreme economic issues we are now facing.As I sat and | Read More »

    The Win-Win debate

    By now most of us have seen the debate and the inevitable spin. Our eyes (and our general conservative leanings) tell us that McCain won the day. The liberals claim that Obama mopped the floor with McCain, and the media calls it a draw/advantage Obama. Who’s right? Everyone.
