Bipartisan Rejection, Populists and the Grassroots
What’s most interesting about the failed bailout plan is that it was such a bipartisan decision. Until yesterday I had no idea that 95 Democrats would oppose the plan. After supposed “leader” Nancy Pelosi ransacked many Republicans for their hardcore stance against the bailout, you would have thought her people would come through. Not so much. As Daniel Larison writes today at Culture11, “Indeed, the | Read More »
What Would a Third Party Be Like?
If things are as they appear (and of course they seldom are), we were all treated today to the spectacle of the American equivalent of what a third Party would be like. We had the Democrats and the Senatorial Republicans, with the House Republicans (perhaps joined by some House Democrats) as the Third Party. What remains to be seen is whether they plan to use | Read More »
Whoa Senator Obama
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that Senator Obama’s leadership ability is minus 10. He can’t even take time out to help his Democratic Party or fellow Americans during this economic slump. His buddies are praising him for his support and gibberish about bipartisanship, but 93 fellow Democrats stood up today and said, “No” to Pelosi and Obama. Way to go Democrats! What’s | Read More »
I challenge democrat Pelosi!
Sept. 28, 2008 Pelosi’ Progress Report Before the Vote Pelosi made herself look bad. Pelosi, making herself look bad, offered many sound bits attacking Bush and the Administration for the economic mess our country is in. She stated: “The party is over” for Wall Street Execs and CEO’s. Gave misleading kudos to the democrats for tossing the pork out of the Bill; and wrongfully insinuating | Read More »
The Truth Hurts
As this situation resolves itself into a blame game and assisted with the finger pointing of certain elected parties I think it’s important to recognize the initial point of conception of how the problem started. If you cannot find the underlying issues, you cannot fix the problem. By now most are becoming aware of the precipitating factors and the scare mongers are running rampant in | Read More »
McCain Leads – Obama Changes
McCain Leads – Obama Changes Did 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 | Read More »
The Politics Of The Bailout
There is an awful lot of dishonesty and dirty campaigning going on in the dealings of the political class concerning negotiations about the bailout. See here. And here as well. The people responsible for this dishonesty and dirty campaigning are now on the cusp of gaining tremendous amounts of control over the financial sector of the United States. If that makes you sleep well at | Read More »
MoveOn.org Bankrolled By Mortgage Mess Fat Cats
This has the potential to be the Democrats’ Enron of 2008. The recent troubles of Wachovia are directly linked to its $25.5 billion purchase of Golden West Financial in 2006. Golden West was run by two longtime liberal activists – Herb and Marion Sandler. Golden West was the holding company for one of the nation’s largest S&Ls: World Savings. World Savings was one of the | 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 »
Bailout Talking Points For A GOP Victory
The turmoil in the financial markets has without question shifted the political landscape in the last few weeks. Not only should this not – but we should not allow it to – adversely affect the races for the House and Senate. Actually, the opposite should be true. Much like the spike in oil prices was originally thought to favor the Democrats, once the proposition of | Read More »
Five House Democrats Who Should Be Doing The Perp Walk Tomorrow Morning
Let’s name names, shall we. Out of control, partisan, ignorant, incompetent fools responsible for the country’s financial meltdown. Via Hot Air, here is the video with transcripts of these morons. Throughout the video, Republicans are pointing out the mismanagement and malfeasance of Franklin Raines and the instability of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and are positively begging for more regulation and oversight. The Democrats stopped | Read More »
As financial crisis looms for the American Economy and we wait for a solution to be passed by Congress there is still business to do. Now we have to keep pressure on the media and Democrats and even Conservatives to keep a “Bail Out” as conservative as possible. We also have to not lose focus on getting the truth out about who was at fault | Read More »
“Erratic” Beats “Unpatriotic” Every Time
Yesterday, the House Republicans sought to promote a bill that would avert a financial system meltdown while protecting the taxpayers. The GOP insurance plan was quickly rejected by Congressional Democrats, who have something else in mind: allowing the system to collapse while blaming John McCain. Rarely has megalomania so neatly dovetailed with sedition.
House Democrats Vote to Raise Taxes… Again!
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. Yesterday the Michigan House of Representatives and the Senate painted an awfully vibrant picture of the difference between sending Democrats or Republicans to the legislature. It is nearly impossible to find a candidate these days that agrees with us on every issue one-hundred percent of the time, but even the GOPers we break with four times out of ten | Read More »
Three new Michigan polls: Liberal Media (all but) ignores survey that shows McCain lead
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. As I read recent poll numbers here in Michigan and across the United States, two things jump right out at me. First, let’s cut the bologna sandwiches… Barack Obama is clearly surging. Second, he’s built so big a lead in states like Michigan that his volunteers obviously needn’t worry and can probably take the rest of the election season | Read More »
