Major Important Election Question

    I have noticed several states, where the race seems fairly close being “called” early in the evening. What bothers me is the percentage of precincts reporting.At 10:00p.m. central-Iowa is being called for Obama, less than 14% are reporting in that state.Minnesota is being called for Obama…25% of precincts are reporting and the spread is something like 52% 47% Obama. How can states with less than | Read More »

    Why Did I Vote?

    I’m sitting here in Arizona waiting to sleep as I’ve done for the pat 27 years of my life. The “waiting to sleep” part, not always in Arizona. For my entire adult life I’ve spent it at the service of the republic we know as the United States of America in the form of a US Army Soldier. I’ve done that for eight years now | Read More »

    I Feel Palin’s Pain

    I have been there before and I am sure many of you reading this probably have been there before too. Even as a young professional, having been in the professional work force only about eight years now, I have run into the problems it seems Palin is running into now.

    Senator McCain’s Homeownership Resurgence Plan

    Senator McCain sent an email out to supporters describing in more detail the Homeownership Resurgence Plan he alluded to during this week’s Presidential debate. The plan sounds reasonable. As I understand it, rather than taxpayers footing the bill for failed mortgages, the government would purchase failing, bloated mortgages that are about to be foreclosed. The mortgages would then be rewritten on more affordable terms, and | Read More »

    PBS Poll on whether Gov. Sarah Palin is qualified for the office of Vice President

    I am positive that PBS is expecting this poll to be a landslide against Gov. Palin, due to their usual audience. At this point not so much. The poll right now has 49% yes, 49% no. I would like to ask everyone here at RS to go to this poll and let your voice be heard. If this poll shows overwhelming support of Gov. Palin | Read More »

    Vice Presidential Debate — In Case You Missed It

    The following comments were recorded as I watched the Vice Presidential debate live on Fox News. My comments on the debate as a whole follow at the end.

    A Call To Arms

    I think it goes without saying that Senator McCain took Barack Obama to school last week in the first Presidential debate. I don’t know how anyone who watched the debate could say otherwise. Obama spent more time stammering, interrupting, and turning red than he did actually providing any useful information to the voters. Senator McCain was very articulate and amazingly prepared for someone who was | Read More »

    Joe Biden thinks Nobama is running a dirty campaign!

    Joe Biden…the gift that keeps giving and giving and giving. In this interview with cute little Catie of the bloodshot eye network, Senator Joe “Foot in Mouth” Biden spills the beans on the lack of class exhibited by campaign Nobama. I keep wondering when the Nobama campaign will put good old Joe on ice!

    Clockwork O-Rage as Obama Urges Supporters to Stomp Home Message of Hope

    The “Hot” Button

    After the fiery speeches given tonight at the Republican National Convention by Rudy Giuliani and Sarah Palin, Republicans and Independents (and hopefully Hillary Democrats) all have something to stand up for. After all of the scandalous reports about Governor Palin’s family that have come out since the announcement of her joining the ticket less than a week ago, I was a little disappointed to see | Read More »

    CBS Coddles Obama / Biden

    This past Sunday, the popular CBS News Magazine show 60 Minutes featured an interview with Barack Obama and Joseph Biden. The full video is embedded at the end of this article. First, some highlights from the video and my commentary. See if you don’t come to the same conclusions that I did, including the conclusion that 60 Minutes and quite likely CBS News have taken | Read More »

    Governor Palin’s Wikipedia Page HACKED!

    Browsing through Twitter this morning, I saw a link to an article that Governor Sarah Palin’s Wikipedia page had been edited just prior to Senator McCain’s announcement that she would be his Vice Presidential running mate, and that the editing had been an inside job. As I was looking at her Wikipedia page on Friday upon the first mention of her name on Fox News, | Read More »

    McCain / Palin 08

    It’s official, Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain has announced that his pick for Vice Presidential candidate will be Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

    Thank You Senator Obama, For Making This So *Easy*

    The selection of Joe Biden to be a heart beat away from the Presidency re-invigorates and refreshes this politics-weary old guy. All that clap trap about hope and change and fixing Washington because it was “broken” from our poor misguided Barack Obama had a lot of people going…for awhile. Long enough to get Hillary out of the spotlight – and we thank you for that | Read More »
