As Matt Drudge put it… B O R I N G

    Ok John, after several hours, I’m still trying to figure out what you’re doing. Two debates down and you still haven’t even made the basic point that the Fannie-Mae, Freddie-Mac crisis was crafted ENTIRELY by Democrats (points for at least mentioning that Obama got contributions from them) or that they were the ones fighting regulation tooth and nail . You haven’t mentioned names like Dodd | Read More »

    Mccain and the economy

    I don’t know about the mortgage stuff, but I need to see more. But I will say this: I was recently in a sticky financial situation and was trying to negotiate with my lender to prevent a possible foreclosure. They were so rigid and would not bend even in the face of having to take on another mortgage. It was baffling to my wife and | Read More »

    screw the MSM

    I’m a first time diarist here at Red State, but long time reader. I’m writing my first diary tonight because I’m outraged at the treatment McCain is receiving by the media!

    The Second McCain-Obama Debate

    Who won this one? Well, it depends where you stand, where you think the candidates stand, what they were trying to accomplish and whether you saw the first debate. The elephant in the room for those of us who follow these things carefully – and for the candidates – was Obama’s recent surge in the polls. Obviously that colors everything, in the sense that it | Read More »

    McCain Won Debate EVEN WITH Missed Opportunities

    Of the tens of thousands of questions that were submitted for the debate tonight, the ones chosen by Brokaw (in the tank for Barry) and his staff were complete layups. The war on terror, personal character, gay marriage, abortion and soooo many more questions that Americans discuss daily were not even raised or “chosen” for the candidates to address. McCain had opportunities to hit answers | Read More »

    Everything I ever learned about leadership I learned from a Chief Petty Officer

    He didn’t have to say that. But he did. Chief Petty Officers are the career enlisted professionals of the Navy since 1893. Their job is to get the job done, train their Sailors, and grow the junior officer assigned to them. Generally, they don’t have a college degree, but they have learned through experience how to deal with the people in their charge, and those | Read More »

    My preliminary reaction: positions unchanged.

    [UPDATE]: One other thought, as triggered by something I saw over NRO: ye gods but were those questions dull. McCain got some good shots in with Fannie/Freddie, Obama got a good moment or two betraying the progressives over nuclear power, offshore drilling, and Israel; I’ll give the closing statement to McCain, but Obama humanizes amazingly when he’s talking about his wife. No insanely bad howlers | Read More »

    “Everything I ever learned about leadership I learned from a Chief Petty Officer”

    Wow, great question about committing our country to Israel’s defense against Iran. Great, great answer, handshake and some of the most important words Navy Chiefs could hear from a Naval Officer, especially a once Navy Captain and commanding officer. Clip added:

    Debate

    If I were a liberal democrat, I would be fuming mad today. The realization of who Obama thinks of you, his people, is quite evident. He thinks your stupid. Where do I start? Barrack Hussien Obama has fed you the lie that he attended Rev Wrights church, for 20 years, listening to his hate sermons. Hate America. Hate the whites. Then Obama tells you he | Read More »

    Three points that will pull the race closer

    1. Obama promised Illinois residents he would not raise taxes, in order to win his Senate seat. Once he was elected, he raised taxes. And we currently have an economic crisis which will make it virtually impossible to lower taxes and pay off this huge debt. Lowering taxes would mean an EXTREMELY slow, Socialist-like economy. Do Americans want a fix that will take decades, and | Read More »

    Re-Enact Wittenburg with John McCain, Newt Gingrich, and Richard Russell

    An excerpt from a Human Events e-mail I have just received: Senator Obama is intimately tied to corruption, left-wing radicalism, and predatory politicians. But the elite media has done everything it could to avoid asking the key questions…. They could use the same technique that Senator Richard Russell used in 1936 to defeat populist Georgia Governor Gene Talmadge. Russell literally posted a list of questions | Read More »

    What every voter needs to consider this November

    I would like to see McCain bring along a copy of the chosen one’s autobiography to the debate tonight and read from the holy gospel according to Barack. There are passages in his book that would make even the most stalwart Obama supporter cringe. And the best part of all is BHO can’t say that it is lies being perpetuated by the vast RWC. It’s | Read More »

    My Second Fax to the McCain Campaign

    I faxed this to the McCain campaign’s headquarters today. I humbly request all who can to help me reinforce the message. The numbers (Fax) are;      (703)752 2515 : (McCain/Palin HQ)             NOTE: This was the number during the primaries – it may not be the same now.      (202)228 2862 : (McCain’s office in the Senate) Go to this page for fax numbers to the RNC. eg;       (202) 863 | Read More »

    Questions for the talented Mr. Obama

    I hope McCain posits at least a couple of these questions in the debate tonight (or alternatively, in some tv ads): If you want to cut taxes for middle class Americans, why haven’t you authored legislation to do just that? Can you point to any tax cut legislation that you supported in your career as a legislator? Can you think of one example where the | Read More »
